Apple runs the largest gaming platform in the world, they have a very well built gaming API in Metal that you can easily port things to. I'm not sure what else you all really want them to do. The barriers have been lowered for years and they're making a crap ton of money doing it. They even run a very cheap subscription service where microtransactions aren't allowed and they fund games that are being developed for it. Now I'm not saying they're GREAT for gaming as big AAA games don't come to the platforms(although some do like X-Com and Divinity), but they do about as much as I see Valve doing. Creating a platform and trying to push things along with hardware. The only other thing I could reasonably see them doing is taking the Epic route and purchasing exclusives for their platform but according to this article from 2001 they make more from gaming than Microsoft, Nintendo, Activision and Sony combined so really there is no incentive there and if they did that we would be all over them for being anti-consumer.

Honestly this sounds like an inferior implementation of multiplayer. The couch coop built into the game allows you to play with as many friends as there are counselors and they actually control their counselor with you passing the controller around. You assign them in the beginning and there is a pause and a prompt for the player as their turn comes up.

A bunch of buddies and I just downloaded Parsec(as this game does not support Steam Play Together for whatever reason) and played it online together. Much better experience than what I would expect this Wolf Pack mode to be.

Great game otherwise. Go in expecting a B-flick horror movie and you'll have a good time!

They've release quite a few games between now and then.
2016: FFXV
2017: FFXIV Stormblood
2019: FFXIV Shadowbringers
2020: FFVII Remake
2021: FFXIV Endwalker
2022: FFVII Remake Part 2
2023: FFXIV Expansion
2024(?): FFXVI

Definitely no lack in Final Fantasy games coming out plus all the ports and the rumored FFIX Remake. Even FFXI is still getting minor updates and is subject to an announcement soon for the 20th anniversary.

They didn't ditch him. This is one of those cases where something private happened that Michael Ironsides didn't want public and the fans eviscerated Ubisoft. Honestly, I give Ubi credit here because they took all the hate and didn't even give a hint to what was really happening behind the scenes. He finally spoke up about it a few years ago that he had cancer and didn't even think he was going to survive.

"Sam never left, I'm still here," Ironside said. "Well, I don't know if you guys want to talk about this or not, but I got cancer and I thought I was actually going to die and I had 60-65% of not making it, I had prostate and bowel cancer and some others. I tried to walk away and put it in good hands and just walk away," Ironside worked as a consultant on Blacklist and helped Johnson play Fisher.

Netflix cancels 'Dark Crystal' prequel series after one season.

I tried watching season 1, but got too much uncanny valley from the puppets.

Damn, It was highly rated, I wonder if they'll be much outcry over the cancellation.

I doubt it, apparently it did so bad they fired a longtime executive who pushed for this project according to this article:

...with a source telling the Hollywood Reporter earlier this month that Age of Resistance's failure was one of the reasons Netflix recently pushed out longtime executive Cindy Holland, who helped bring the series to life. The series was referred to as an expensive disappointment, per the unnamed source.

No question I'm waiting on AMD...;)

Me too. The 5700XT here is currently around $550 on average. The RTX 2080 is a grand. Why would anyone pay twice as much for marginally better performance.

Because Nvidia is ahead in other ways as well. They're now on their second generation of ray tracing hardware where AMD will be on their first and Nvidia is leading the world in machine learning/AI technologies. This isn't an Intel situation where they sat around at the top and did nothing, the video card business is a byproduct of what Nvidia is cooking up these days. Just DLSS alone is an incredible technology that will boost FPS way higher than we've seen before, and AAA games are starting to take advantage of it with Cyberpunk, Fortnite and the Crysis remaster. I'm not saying AMD wont have an answer, they very well could. I have no idea what they've been cooking up. But with how advanced Nvidia is overall, it would be hard for me to imagine they'll have anything that can compare.

I wonder they are so resistant to the idea of TESVI? ESO is not the answer.

They aren't resistant to the idea. They've already shown they definitely are going to do it. Most people don't realize that Bethesda is actually a pretty small studio that doesn't hire often. They have enough manpower to work on one game at a time. First it was Fallout 4, then they worked on Fallout 76 with some other studios, and now their full attention is on Starfield. After that and its DLCs are out, THEN they'll work on ESVI. Gonna be a long wait.

They have a track record that is quickly fading. Their latest two releases, this game and WoW 8.3 have been disasters. I can't speak for Reforged but I am heavily into WoW.

This patch alone has seen one of the longest PTR phases(public testing) any patch has gotten and has been released in one of the buggiest and unbalanced states ever. From quests just not working to having to nerf multiple items by over 50%!

If you had the opportunity to watch the world first race which is a bunch of guilds racing to kill the hardest boss in the game first, it was a complete nightmare. There is even speculation that Blizzard was actually working on the boss AS these guys were pulling it. Mechanics were literally changing from pull to pull and at one point Blizzard reset the encounter because they were doing something that wasn't intended but seemed to be working. Keep in mind these guys are the first ones working on this boss so no one knows what the intended strat is.

Add that to the fact that 8.3.5 was canceled and the current storyline doesn't really have an ending it seems clear they are struggling at the moment.

They did fire a bunch of people a while ago and from what I read Reforged was outsourced to a different studio so I don't know what is going on over there. It just seems like they don't have enough people to work on everything they have going. This is coming from someone who has been playing their games from nearly the beginning, the Blizzard that is working on games now is not at all the Blizzard that built up any credit or goodwill in the community.

Nothing went wrong with virtual reality? Sony just announced they've sold 5 million PSVR units while Oculus and Valve can't keep their headsets in stock. I think VR is doing fine. The article is right though, it is still a steep price to get into PCVR but PSVR is affordable for a larger amount of people and it seems like Sony is going to continue on with the PS5.

Not saying the new Terminator will be any good or not but I think it has hope. James Cameron sold off the rights to Terminator after the second one so anything that came after was not related to him at all. He regained those rights this year I believe so this will be the first Terminator since the second to be under his control. Haven't followed the movie very closely though. Not sure if hes ignoring all the other movies and just continuing from the second or not.

They don't have keys because they aren't allowed to sell them anymore. This is the same for every third party key seller at the moment. Both The Division 2 and Anno 1800 were available until launch from key sellers but they are no longer. As of right now the game is completely exclusive to Epic and UPlay.

https://www.anno-union.com/en/ubisoft-is-partnering-with-epic-games-store-for-anno-1800/

Once the game has been released on April 16, 2019, Anno 1800 will only be available digitally on the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games store.

I jumped onto MoviePass the day they announced they you could see all the movies you want for $10. It has been literally the greatest subscription service I have ever had. I have seen an upwards of 60+ movies over the span of 11 months for just $110 total. The service wasn't at all a scam, it was just a dumb business overall. I'm still not sure how they were planning on making money paying full retail for these tickets and only charging people $10.

That being said their goal up front was to shake up the movie industry so they claim. And I do think they've done that. I just dumped my MoviePass and signed up for the AMC A-List service which is twice as expensive at $20/mo and I can only see 3 movies a week. But at the same time I can reserve online and ahead of time as well as watch IMax and Dolby movies, those tickets go for an upwards of $20 at prime time. The AMC service wouldn't be around IMO without MoviePass. Word is Regal cinemas are going to start up a subscription service too, and Alamo Drafthouse is currently testing theirs. MoviePass might have failed as a service, and rightfully so but we're getting some good things out of it at least.

Heat is real bad here in the Dallas area too. We've been in an excessive heat warning for the past few days. So its not just hot, its excessively hot! I think we've even broken the record for the past 3 or 4 days which have been around 108-110 before the heat index. Luckily(?) once the actual temperature gets that high the heat index doesn't really climb much higher. But good news comes on Tuesday when the 100 streak breaks at 99 then we go right back in it for another week of 100+ temps.

Do yall not realize that this client adds nothing to their "spyware"? If they want information on you they already have it. These guys own 40% of Epic(Fortnite), 25% of Activision(Blizzard and CoD), they completely own Riot(LoL), they completely own Grinding Gear Games(Path of Exile), and they recently bought another 5% of Bluehole(PUBG) bringing their ownership up to 10%. This is the largest gaming company in the world, as well as the fifth largest company in the world, larger than Facebook. They already have your information. Not trying to say if WeGame is worth installing or not but if your goal is to give them as little information as possible you're already too late. They've got you.

I'm surprised there's so much confusion about the title numbering. It isn't supposed to be roman numerals, its supposed to signify slashes like marking kills on a gun or counting days in a prison. The next game wouldn't be IIIII, it would be \IIII\(I don't really know how to represent it in text form, hopefully my meaning comes through =p).

I'm not sure how you guys think that 20hz is a low goal. This is a game putting 100 players in a fully destructible world with building in it. Other games with 64+ tick rates are low player counts like CSGO or Overwatch. The other Battle Royale games are struggling with the same issues. CPU speeds have not increased at all in the past few years, yet we continue to try and push player counts and arena fluidity further. We're simply hitting the max we can go with what we have available.

And I know someone will bring up Battlefields 64 tick servers, some even have 128 tick and that is honestly a good point. It is incredibly impressive what DICE has managed to do with their engine. But you have to keep in mind they are the only ones that have been able to do this, and they had to work at it for years. Frostbite is the only engine that runs as well as it does, takes full advantage of multicore CPUs, can handle a multitude of genres and works well across a wide range of hardware/consoles. The only other engine that I can think of off the top of my head that can do this is Ubisoft's Snowdrop engine and that one does not have anywhere near the networking ability that Frostbite has.

I guess ultimately my point is that getting above a 20hz tickrate is not an easy task for a game of this size. Only one company has managed to do it, with only up to 64 players but I do believe DICE has some of the smartest people in the industry working on their engine. They would have to with what they can put out with it. If these other companies could, I'm sure they would put in the research and figure out how to do it. And I would bet that Ubisoft has tried and failed or else we would see them competing on the same fronts with online gameplay.

I think everyone is missing the real issue on why this was brought up. Whats happening isn't the fact that controllers have aim assist, its an issue with XIM controllers.

Basically XIM takes a mouse and keyboard and translates it into controller inputs for consoles so you can use M/K controls on a PS4 or XB1. But people are using it on the PC version of Destiny 2 in the competitive multiplayer tricking it into thinking you're using a controller, but you're actually using a M/K. This bundled with the fact that aim assist is VERY liberal in how close you have to be before it locks on basically means you have a very good, fully sanctioned aim hack with mouse and keyboard.

Personally I don't have a problem with the aim assist in the PvE portion of the game, I doubt I would ever notice anyone using it anyway. But in the PvP part of the game its going to be very frustrating if you come across anyone using it. Most cheaters buy multiple copies of games when they get banned so buying a XIM and never getting banned is a very low cost for most of them. Hopefully they do decide to turn off aim assist in PvP because it could be very bad in the long run.

For those having issues with the game starting on their secondary monitors(I had this as well) you can just hold the Windows Key + Shift and press your arrow keys to move the game to whichever monitor you want it on.

Turns out that this is actually fake per https://www.pcgamesn.com/gta-6-leak-fake.

We got in touch with Tim Neff and he had this to say: “That isn't my page, account or résumé. I don't even know that website. I worked on GTA 5 a long time ago and haven't done anything since. Sorry for the confusion. It seems I'm being trolled online really badly.”
