They note he "was accused of cheating on his wife and lying about his marital status,"

What does that have to do with sexual harassment?

Games have to be made for streaming... publishers and devs cannot just lazily port over console or PC titles and expect it to work. "Broaden your audience" is to make gamers out of casuals or non-gamers, and those people will be attracted to gorgeous graphics, better storytelling, and gameplay that does not hinge on reaction time... all of that is possible with gaming by stream, and can play to the strengths of the service.

I feel like the games that could work for streaming are games you would already subscribe to already, like MMORPGs.

I think it's because too many either try to be too realistic/simulatorish or others aren't arcadey enough. Like Tony Hawk hit the perfect balance of fun in a skateboard game.

Honestly, who wants a skateboard simulator when you could probably get your ass up, go outside, and try the real thing? At that point you will find it's either, not for you/boring, or you love it.

With the game, I don't care anything about skateboarding but it was just a fun game done well.

Yea, THPS and SSX basically covered that arcadey middle ground that was fun to play, fun to do multiplayer(either competing at the same time or sequentially), and were easy to spend just 20 minutes in rather than a deeper session investment that most games require these days, etc

Ninth century AD. Driven from Norway by endless wars and dwindling resources, a Viking raider, Eivor, leads a clan of Norsemen across the icy North Sea to the rich lands of England’s broken kingdoms. Their mission: establish a new permanent home, no matter the cost.
Ubisoft is usually good at portraying how things actually were during the time period they set the AC games in. And then we get this crap.

I can't wrap my head around this shit either, man. I have two huge issues with the premise:

1.) Vikings were nomad raiders, and if they returned home, it was Norway. I think. But my history is rusty.

2.) Why make a vikings theme and then drop their arses in the UK? What, the fjords and other beautiful Norwegian pearls of nature couldn't inspire the devs? So again they go for the forts and castles and churches etc? The only thing "viking" from the sound of it, will be the protagonist himself. Such a disappointment.

Looking forward for more gameplay and information though. I'll try to stay positive. I loved Odyssey.

Uhh, the Great Heathen Army was originated as an occupation and conquering force that essentially permanently settled in the UK, with waves of reinforcements over the years. The first game trailer shows Alfred the Great, who was the King of Wessex during this time(and earlier a prince as his brothers were king before him and died during the invasion). This establishes the timeline. During this time, Gunthrum became the King of East Anglia while Halfdan became king of Northumbria with the Kingdom of Mercia in between mostly under their control. Many of them settled permanently across the region.

Maybe you're from Texas or something where they don't give a shit about teaching history, or maybe you're joking

Whats with all the remaster garbage? Did we stop innovating? Did we stop making new stuff? Minecraft clones, platformers, turn based games, and cart racing are NOT new.

Crysis was and always will be a tech demo for the engine(CryEngine). This is just showing where they're at currently. They make a decent living off licensing CryEngine, but they need to show it off from time to time because it's not ubiquitous like UnrealEngine or Unity

Even the fanciest whore house is expensive. This is more like going to the cheap whore house.

He couched it as an experiment, but he believes he knows the outcome already.

They always think they do. People designing user experiences always believe that their way is the best because of some study or some experience or some focus group. That said, there's always novel approaches to handling things, which is why modding is great, because Valve is just one very small group of people and they can't have every idea.

Convert that experience to M+KB, and you may as well replay HL2.

Granted that's what many people want. Ep3, HL3, whatever.
O.K., but Valve did not make that game.
People have been wanting a 3 for over a decade.

Yes, but that's what people want, and the game supports modding, so people will make it, which is the entire point of what Robin Walker said

I´m an avid FPS player, but I thought SiN was awful and a total letdown when it come out, and every time I tried to replay it.

It was poorly received then, so I don´t get what they think they are going to accomplish now, barring an impossible remake.


There's definitely some other stuff from that era that would be much better to remaster, like anything Lithtech. Shogo, Blood 2, NOLF, etc

Remember when Epic was open and largely platform independent? Loot box money has changed the gaming landscape. It's like SaaS for games. Companies don't mind compromising decades of goodwill they've built up to suck it down and inflate their bottom line. Now Epic has a seat at a grander table and they've opened the anti-consumer tactic floodgates to stay there. They're turning into Creative Labs
