Hmmm. Maybe all that "fake taxi" porn isn't so fake.

200 "No"s and a "yes" is still a yes!

I can't even imagine what these uber-type-service drivers have to submit themselves to/put up with.

This and Boneworks definitely make me want to get into VR. And it comes with modding tools for Source 2, which should lead to some interesting content.

With all the Tencent money flying around (GGG is included), my sights are now on Wolcen. Very fun game. Though of course Tencent has money in it, too.

It's seemingly inescapable.

News Comments > Diablo IV Confirmed as Online-Only

3. Re: Diablo IV Confirmed as Online-Only Nov 3, 2019, 12:04 Rhett
 
I think they're just modernizing the online portion a bit, what with running into random people, random player interactions, supposed trading hubs... Anything more than that, like say, a subscription, would probably not go over well.

But then again, they actually tried the RMAH once. Can't really put anything past these greedy fucks.

Edit: Also guessing there's going to be a fair amount of cosmetic microtransactions, since you'll be seeing a lot more people than in D3. They love that jealousy factor for sales.

News Comments > Ubisoft Calls Out Breakpoint & Delays Games

6. Re: Ubisoft Calls Out Breakpoint & Delays Games Oct 24, 2019, 22:34 Rhett
 
Yeah, Breakpoint was just... awful. I was really looking forward to it, but they managed to add even more negatives on top of all the arcadey crap in Wildlands. But at least Wildlands was a solid experience. No random loot to grab and constantly swap out (that is also nearly arbitrary until certain levels are hit).

At least it didn't do well, so much that they realized it needed to be analyzed. I have no idea what they were thinking besides "give more money.".

News Comments > Fallout 76 Launches Fallout 1st Private Server Program

Damn. They need to stop and either outright stop working on FO76, or work on polishing it from the ground up at this point.

I loved the game when I played, but their patches and extremely obvious lack of QA is the death of the game. Really, really good base model for a game, though. I'm sure it's technical hell for the devs with what they're working with.

For sure. Nevermind them putting content behind a one year exclusivity deal less than a month before launch.

And the Treyarch devs have lied for BLOPS 4 regarding weapons affecting gameplay/loot boxes, I believe, so this could all change. Activision doesn't care about anything but money.

News Comments > The Division 2 Episode 2 Pentagon: The Last Castle Released

3. Re: Retro Dust II Map Celebrates 20th Anniversary of Counter-Strike Oct 15, 2019, 23:51 Rhett
 
It was definitely really fun, have revisited a couple times now.. but they keep putting out more crappy raid content with poor in-game group finding capability, and now the pentagon DLC isn't even what people were hoping for (Underground, at the least).

I just want Survival and Underground back! Not more story missions or raids.

I guess they're more keen on telling a story than long-term content. :/

I sincerely hope they pick it back up themselves, because it sounded okay in concept but I didn't really trust the developer. I guess they didn't either...

Very glad they appear to be keeping their high standards.

Haven't played since Warmind and Osiris, and never got into raiding (lack of chat, group finder, etc)... I'm curious to try it again.

News Comments > Evening Patches

1. Re: Evening Patches Sep 27, 2019, 20:23 Rhett
 
Love The Surge 2 (combat anyway), but holy hell either this engine, or their QA for said engine, are absolutely horrible. Gameplay's great, but going below at least 60 FPS just makes me hate playing it. Performance is all over the place, and artifacting shows up randomly here and there.

Still play it regularly with friends, with it being one of their favorite games. Modding has revitalized the game considerably.

Not sure how I feel about the map, since there's still some big issues (like vehicles - which are pretty damn broken on a lot of servers)... but hopefully this will come alongside a patch.

News Comments > Modern Warfare Spec Ops Survival Mode Exclusive to PS4 Until October 2020

3. Re: Huh? Sep 24, 2019, 20:40 Rhett
 
It looks that there's at least two parts to this mode. One is missions that tie in with the campaign, and the other looks to be (speculation based on some footage I saw) a wave-based survival mode sorta akin to MW3. It's that latter mode that seems to be a 1-year exclusive.

People are quite pissed, rightfully so, and some are cancelling their orders. Full price without all of the game.

There's been no mention (yet?) of a BR mode.

I do not trust 2K, Randy or Epic. Also, Epic guarantees X sales with their bribery, so who knows how many of those are included?

I have no doubts many fans did buy it regardless of platform (especially on console, where it seems to be most popular), plus there's cross-platform now right? I sincerely hope Gearbox at least fixes all the bugs/serious issues I've heard about, because it does look decent.

It doesn't matter how much Epic is paying it matters if they - devs - would have sold more without the exclusive. Meh, whatevs, 10 mil for a game to sit around for a year while they polish it and sell the 'finished' version everywhere else for cheaper later on? I'm fine with that as Epic seems to be fine with wasting its money.

There is that but there is also the fact byt the time it hits Steam (at least I) how many will actually give a shit about the game? I already care little about Metro anymore.

Also I would not be surprised if these dumb asses try and sell it on steam for $60 because it is "new". They did this shit with console games when they came to PC (even years) after they were on console.

I'm expecting this too (full price). There's been practically zero sales, or very meager sales, on ANYTHING related to EGS since they started doing this exclusivity shit. Preorder sales/GMG and such. So I can't expect them to not try to pull that, depending on the publisher.

But yeah, people are probably not going to care by then, or just wait for fully patched, DLC-complete games at a discount at that point.
