Yeah, Spectral -- it gets a lot more hate than it deserves. Even though I'm not happy with the on-line requirement, I've gotten over it over time...

I didn't buy it--don't want it--when developers start designing the DRM into the structure of their games, I'm out--just not interested. Still actually enjoying Diablo II & expansion, although I discovered that the last so-called patch for the game that Blizzard released--1.14, believe--actually renders my copies unplayable--and it adds nothing of interest to me, but 1.12/13 work fine, however. Under Win10x64 build 16232, RX 480 8G. D3 and the last SimCity both thought that they'd be cute by building DRM into the structure of the game--making the online component a requirement and ruining or else cutting out the single-player aspect completely--no thanks. Don't miss them at all. I buy all of my games--if developers want to punish me for doing so, fine--but I will not buy the games that do so.

Sure then you can stay with your cartridge and disc games, meanwhile the rest of us are gaming in pleasure.

Online DRM has long ceased to matter, especially in multiplayer titles like D3. Fine fine fine Simcity shouldn't have it, other strictly single player content shouldn't have it, but sorry to say - your complaint there feels like something that's 10 years old.

Blizzard seems even more greedy than usual lately, and way less creative than the old days. Clearly that is subjective, but I think I'm going to stick to new games and skip the remasters for awhile.

Someone on here is going to be triggered by this for sure.

But I agree with you... yet I can't help but think is that because we're getting older and more bitter? Or is it because it's the truth and we have the wisdom to see it with clairvoyance?

I can't tell anymore...

No, Blizzard has had a problem with conceptual development for probably 15 years now. Mechanically WoW managed to innovate, but I remember original, vanilla WoW back when it launched and it was a Frankenstein of Warcraft 3 and Diablo 2 concepts. Overwatch had some new-ish ideas (new for Blizzard) to it but otherwise they are really, really bad at coming up with *new* ideas.

That being said, I paid 10 bucks for the remaster of Full Throttle, so 15 bucks for a remaster of Starcraft isn't bad. I'll pass because I played so much Starcraft back in the day I burned out on it, but it's a lot better deal than, say, 15 dollars for one new character in Diablo 3.

$15 USD for the remaster of SC is worth it to be, because ranked ladder will be supported natively in game. You will not need to use an external client and so on.

Would be mega cool if they re-mastered all the cut scenes as well.

Yes these are being redone. It would look just awful if the old BW cut scenes were still there - they hadn't aged well.

Secret World is different from "Perfect World", I presume? As in, completely different makers?

I only know of Perfect World from the endless ads along sidebars but most of all through a friend of mine who spent untold amounts of $$ on vanity items in the game. She had to have that Panda mount...

I just want her to go away.

She did, kinda - for a while. She went to target the movie industry and what they did was far more powerful than the gaming community. They ignored her.

She couldn't get the attention she craved so she came back to us.

Yup true. But this time around - the reviews from the pros are mostly positive and indeed, should have happened a long time ago for several.

Great to see the discussion not on outright hatred on iOS devices.

As we can all plainly see, Android phones did it first(removal of the headphone jack). Apple is only rumored to be removing it...now would it be the funniest thing, if these rumors all turned out to be false, and iPhones end up with the headphone jack after all?

"gearbox has writers?"

are you fucking kidding me?

this is either a pithy troll attempt, or you legitimately don't know what you're talking about. I'm guessing the latter.

Battleborn is so far the funniest game I've played since Portal 2. Totally unexpected. It's not all AAA-grade comedy, but a big chunk of it is, and the shit that characters say in MP just makes me start crying it's so good. That's probably the most noticeable thing coming from BattleBorn to Overwatch... Overwatch is fucking dry and boring and tries to take itself seriously... I'd much rather hear my character taunt the enemy with "Public school student!" instead of "The reckoning is here". BARF.

Although speaking of funny games, the mini game where you catapult portal-style personality cores in valve's "The Lab" demo for the vive is also really funny, with a cameo from Justin Roiland no less!

I just hope that the writer in this story will have the freedom to keep up this irreverant tone with the new job on offer..

There's no accounting for taste. There are people out there that actually like the Star Wars prequels and Community's 4th season.

I'm with you man. I love Battleborn's humor and the character designs are better than Overwatch IMO. Tracer's accent is beyond irritating. Blizzard just nailed it with the more mainstream appeal.

"Blizzard just nailed it with the more mainstream appeal." That's the funny thing about you guys here on Blues News.

It's as if you guys are just about the indie stuff or cheering on for the little guys. And yet if in a parallel universe where Battleborn and Overwatch has their userbase numbers reversed, there wouldn't be even any mention of Blizzard.

I'm not seeing you guys lob snide comments on how League of Legends continues to completely trounce Heroes of the Storm in playerbase and viewership on Twitch and tourneys.

The funny thing is that gameplaywise and mechanics-wise, the two games couldn't be more different from each other. They aren't even competing in the same space. If anything Overwatch is competing against the Team Fortress and Dirty Bomb franchises. It had no intention whatsoever of going up against Battleborn.

Battleborn just happened to be an innocent bystander-type casualty.

Their competition, their prize pool = their rules.

Kinda funny for some of us to be critical of Capcom giving out prize money when they don't have to at all.

There are reasons for NOT turning on "Read Receipts"

- You want more control over what information others can see(or rather, not see). A perfect scenario is dating. The cloak/dagger intrigue of appearing "hard to get", or "busy" is one of many key elements of successful dating, and arguably especially so, in your 20's to early 30's, where the available pool of partners is at its largest.

- The idea of "courtesy" as explained in the video does make a lot of sense, when doing business(and especially when interacting with your realtor, lawyer, and other crucial business-type dealings).

I would like to see Apple take this feature further, and not make it an all-or-nothing thing, but allow a little bit of customization, eg. VIP contacts get the "Read Receipts" but others do not, for example.

Probably won't happen - but that's an avenue that other Messaging apps can capitalize on.

I see it as the opposite of that. More and more young people understand the importance of that balance and they work to live, not live to work. And that's as it should be. There's an old expression, no one ever died saying 'I should have spent more time at the office.' So good on them. Revel in your time and enjoy your youth while you're young because there may not be a later.

Yeah but PLENTY of people work for 50 years saying "I wish I had done a bit better in preparing for the future when I was younger."

So your story of a 20-year old, who is now 70 - says to himself "if only I put more money away. If only I worked harder and longer".

And then he dies of a stroke a day later.

"Work-life balance" is a concept which doesn't matter...

...until it does. In your 20's you can work those 80+ hours/week, sleep underneath your cubicle, use the shower at work(if there is one), and subsist entirely on Coke and pizza.

Then one day you hit 35. Somewhere along the way you managed to find a girlfriend, and somehow make enough time to have a wedding and marry her. Somewhere along the way, kids came into the picture.

That's the moment the concept "work-life balance" begins to matter. And that's something that young 20-something's just don't understand, when they sneer and jeer at it.

You just wait till it matters. You just wait.

There's also the whole "work hard, play hard" but the funny thing here is, how can you "play hard" when you work so hard and so long, that there's no time to play?

Here we are, sitting in our prisons - oh I'm sorry, our cubicles - glancing at our smartphones, declining invitation after invitation from our friends. We're wracking our brains over yet another software defect, meanwhile our lads are out on the town chasing girls, tumbling down the mountain in a vain attempt to learn to snowboard, and just plain living life.

Loving games isn't enough to sustain you when you're working 80 hours a week, feeling like shit all the time, trying not to let your marriage fall apart because you never see your family for more than a few minutes a day, missing out on everything else that's happening in the world because you're stuck at a desk your whole life.

"My wife is leaving and my life is falling apart, but that's totally fine because I get to make video games for a living!!"

Fuck this guy. He tells people to quit so he can hire someone else with more "passion", but it's not passion that makes them put up with shit working conditions, it's desperation. This cunt hires people in vulnerable positions who need money so they can pay the rent, and will tolerate the shit he puts them through because they have no other option. Or he hires young kids just entering working life who will tolerate his bullshit because they don't have families, or because they don't even realize they're being mistreated and they think this is just what working life is. He's fucking scum.

The typical manager scum who has the gall to tell us peasantry and common-folk that we don't get to spend time with our newborns, don't get to witness the moments of our child's first steps, don't get to life live.

Oh no no. We must work to live, not the other way around. And we're all lying on our deathbeds, oh god do we wish we worked more and harder. But of course.

Oh goodie...another rich, entitled prick telling those who actually -do- the work to stop bitching about long hours, poor pay and bad management.

Oh, venturebeat...should have known. That's as big a shock as finding an article promoting lower capital gains taxes on Forbes.

yeah, sadly typical of a dude in a management position, cracking the whip over the young, entitled kids who won't "pay their dues".

Let me guess. He goes home at 5pm to his family and meanwhile the the rows of cubicles don't get to leave until 9pm.

A far better question is this, Capcom -

You had a pretty good beta for SFV going + time to iron out all the issues THEN.

And now that the game's released in a horrible state on PC, all of a sudden you've got all this news to report? You rushed this port out, and it shows.

Last night Justin Wong went through 26+ wins in a row, against new players who literally just bought the game. Ranking system was broken.
