Oh god no...just no.

Vanilla WW2 please.

Why are people so resistant to cool shit? I'd love a sci-fi or steampunk Battlefield but the majority always seem to want the same old real settings. Meh. I asked Josh Sawyer on his blog thing long ago why all planets and fantasy settings just look like Earth and his response was "most consumers prefer realistic Earth-like settings." So weird to me.

Anyway, I'm sure it'll end up being WW2 since that's what sells. The "new setting" talk surely just meant compared to the last few.

2142 was a good one

Why can't they just make up more interesting and completely impossible wars? Disregard the limitations of "reality", and let's have some fun!

This is a god damn video game, not a history book. How about...

Antarctica vs. Australia
New Zealand vs. Argentina
Canada vs. Mexico
India vs. Mongolia
Turkey vs. Norway
USA vs. Egypt
UK vs. Brazil

Take too much time and effort do do a research or even pull out a war from their collective asses.

Am I missing some inside thing, but shouldn't it be IV?

I'm confused on that as well.

News Comments > Anthem in March 2019
10. Re: Anthem in March 2019 May 9, 2018, 14:35 ExGemini
 
I'm old, born 1980.

I do remember back in the days when often the discussion with friends would steer too "wouldn't be amazing if it was multiplayer?".
It often involved great single player games.

I do also remember the hassle to put together a lan back then, with the coaxial before the rj45 was a thing.

Today I often watch this games and wonder how good they would be if they were ment for single player from the ground up.

So is this where we are now? Forget GHZ, lets see how many cores we can stuff into a microscopic space? I wonder how much better those 8 cores would be at, oh, 7ghz? or 10ghz? Because that's where we should be by now. Hell, BY NOW, using Moore's Law, we should be at 50ghz. We're being held back! Conservatives? Liberals? Illuminati? Vulcans? I dunno, but cores are not our future! This industry was built on pushing the speed limit, MHZ then GHZ and now we've been hovering around 4ghz for more than a decade! This industry is stagnant and it's a fucking disgrace!

Blues, you would be doing everyone a favor if you dont post anything about EA or this crap infested game. Does anyone really care about this game or anything EA related anymore?

I second that

I streamed a bunch of this last night. It has a few interface quality of life issues and it doesn't have the tongue-in-cheek humour and stellar soundtrack of the Tropico games but this is a really cool and different take on the city builder concept. My stream was over 3 hours and I wanted to keep going.

I've seen some streams and it shows that it was made for console as well. The interface sometimes feels clunky?

Yeah, never played it myself but I know quite a few people around here seem to have a lot of love for it. I could get down on this when it hits $20 or less.

That's about the right price for a remaster of such a classic game

I can't shake the feeling with the inevitable government intervention to curb publishers' unchecked avarice with their exploitative and predatory gambling mechanics, this loot box bubble is going to burst sooner or later, and it's not going to be pretty.

If the lobbyist don't get to government fist, which I'm sure they are already working on

I wonder if this applies to most of the streamers who make their money by the use of calling them 'donations' ??


I will bet that it is either EA or UBI that will be the first to put a lawsuit on someone over this....

I think they will find all sort of loopholes to squeeze money out of people. Sooner or later it was bound to happen.

If there is money to make, big company will start to sue or dish out contracts for let's players.

So people are no longer entitled to their opinions about the products they paid for? gg corporatocracy.


Opinion yes, being a piece of shit and insulting 360 is not opinion, is just being a toxic twat.

Have you ever notice that yes, behind a monitor one can talk smack all he wants, but if he was to do that in real life, he would get a punch in the teeth?

Yeah and the person doing the punching ends up losing their job, home, and going to prison for a few years. People have the right to express negative opinions, particularly as consumers. The fact that Blizzard thinks they have the right to dictate what people can and can't say is massive overreach, wholly arrogant, and illegal. Can't wait until they get sued for this, and it'll happen.


If they do that in other medium, yes.
But I think what they are doing is monitoring video of actual gameplay, which would be in their righ to actually ban you if you have been recorded being an asshole.

If you were talking shit in a chat, in a forum, in a bar, that I agree would be right down facist.

It sounded more to me like seeing people being assholes in a match that someone then posted to YouTube, and they ban that account even if not reported, no? Rather than people being assholes in comments sections of YouTube.

Oh indeed I'm sure they will look about INGAME stuff.
You can be a toxic asshole all you want outside that I suppose

And make sense: if they start banning people based on other medium they will open up to massive lawsuits and what not.
