A sequel to Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World is definitely welcoming news. A great story displaying true grit, tactics, and reliance on instincts and intelligence w/o modern technology. Yeah, it's hard to believe it has been 14 years already.

This and Gladiator are probably my favorite from Russell Crow movies.

News Comments > Square Enix on the Future of Deus Ex
3. Re: Square Enix on the Future of Deus Ex Nov 28, 2017, 10:28 MajorD
 

Well, hopefully they learned by their mistakes with the last installments of the franchises; Thief with its weak disjointed story line, weak character development, terrible level designs due to too many transitional loading screens, and stupid/ridiculous AI. And Deus Ex: Mankind Divided with its what seemed to be a rushed plot, weak character development, and greed ridden micro transactions.

Did you pay attention Eidos and Square Enix?

UCSF's Kearns argues that if the sugar industry had published its findings decades ago, it would have added to a growing body of evidence. Growing bodies in FAT America should have been some of the evidence. (Pun intended).

"Had this information been made public, there would have been a lot more research scrutiny of sugar," Kearns told us.
Kearns says the sugar industry has "a lot of money and influence" and still uses its influence to cast doubt on the recommendation to limit added sugars to no more than 10 percent of daily calories.

Sound familiar? Ta - cough - bac - cough - co!!!

So many problems in this world stem from pure greed!

Wall Street will only improve games, just look what they've already done for SWBII & NFSP.

Absolutely, and they're working with Microsoft on Windows 10 to improve gaming even more.

Well it was a FCC appointed by the democrats that came up with this ridiculous idea in the first place. Can't think of a stupider idea than accessibility requirements on video games.

Hey, come on now man, I'm sure if you had disabilities that prevented you from enjoying video games like those w/o disabilities, I would think this would not seem like 'such a rediculous idea".

The game that runs like crap on any PC, no matter how beefy! I got it on Steam sale last year and my PC won't even run it at a decent fps, even though it way exceeds the recommended specs.

Are you trying to max everything out? I'm running a i7-2600K and had a 780Ti at the time, and ran near maximum settings, w/o any loss (noticeable) in visual quality, and I had no FPS issues. I recall obtaining the recommended settings from a website at the time, but I can't recall where.

Were the sales of Watch Dogs 2 very good? It seemed like that game came and went pretty quickly.

Amazon opened a store in Seattle with no staff and no checkout. Just pick up the items you like and walk out with them. You first tell the store who you are, then it can track your movements, the products you interact with, the ones you carry around, and the one you walk out the door with, and charge your Amazon account accordingly.

Wow, pretty crazy. Is it currently a test bed, or been in existence for a while now?

Uh lots of us because we give a shit about our privacy. Only idiots use Win10 willingly.

LOL! You should probably stop using GMail, Social Media, and your cell phone then.

......Definitely don't walk into most retail stores, either. Don't drive on most roads.

Upon reading your post Beamer, this movie scene popped into my head.

Because 'social media' has perpetuated narcissism to absurd levels, with everyone in their own little worlds where you can't even look at the wrong without 'offending' them!

The Co-Op portion looks like it has good potential, but the best Co-Op ever developed, was by Techland with Dying Light where the same SP campaign could be played with up to 4 players. I have yet to see another Developer/Game achieve that same level.

So Arc is exactly the same price it was before?

- Double the price
- 50% off 'sale'

- Profit

F&#K those guys!!! I considered Ark Survival at one point, but as soon as these AssClowns released paid DLC for a game still in EA, I want nothing to do with them out of principal. Voting with my wallet. DICKS!

Wanna know how I really feel?

Yeah, it's a shame really. With any Publisher-driven game there is no passion, fun, or artistic licenses.....those days have been long gone.

All it has become is about the bottom line and how soon a game can be shoved out the door, ready or not.

"Those days?" If anything, crunch is less now than it used to be. Which isn't saying things are good now, but this is what game development has been for 25 years.

...this is what game development has been for 25 years.

Agreed, but I see it as more extreme now. For example: Back in the early days id Software, they no doubt worked long hours, but those long hours were driven by their passion, not the cracking whip of a publisher trying to get a game shoved out the door as soon as possible.

We did that with Obama for two terms, and look where it got us: ACA / Obama Care shoved down our throats/higher health insurance cost, more entitlement programs / higher taxes, weakened military, increase in opiate deaths, reduced manufacturing / increased imports, insanely increased national debt, etc. Should I go on?
