Huh, so Valve are pushing their almost monopoly a bit further down our troats in that everyone buying retail or elsewhere is not allowed to participate in review scores anymore?

Featured Steam reviews are fucking stupid junk, mostly trolls, memes, and jokes.

The fact that you're not using something like Metacritic to check reviews is ridiculous.

This has nothing to do with monopolies and everything to do with the same thing that Amazon struggles with, fake/joke/bullshit reviews.

Very interested in the DS4 adapter, I'd really like to have seamless usage on a PC. I had high hopes for the Steam controller, but the DS4 just hits everything so well...

All that said, I'm not interested in a monthly sub to play...

Yea, this is big, and I wonder if it will work outside of the Playstation Now software. I'd love to have that device work for Steam games

There are a lot of mp games to choose from, Quake Live can't even hit 1000 concurrent players a day.


Very few make it past a few months of real active players anymore. Gotta hit that jackpot or start grass roots somehow. The average good release doesn't get much play.

As far as this game, I was hoping for something more like Doom 2016, with a classical focus. Instead, we get FPS MOBA.

and in half the cases loses on performance to a dual-core i3 from intel.

Until engines are actually capable of handling more than one or two cores, it will be this way forever.

I tried a few rounds of CS:GO a few months ago, but it just felt crap to me. Which was weird because the last time I played CS before that (I believe it was CS: Source) it played and felt pretty good.

I've played both(as well as CS since beta 3). GO and Source aren't that much different in feel to me. The only problem is finding base pubbie servers. Everything is a goddamned surf or idle server. So basically, you play ranked, or don't play at all most of the time, and ranked games take a long time to complete.

Nearly 2 decades later for this franchise and all they can do is some farmed-out "expansion" by people who couldn`t even handle the remake.

It`s just so simple - get a new engine, upgrade the godawful combat to Divinity: OS model (or even PoE) and hire few decent writers. Then laugh all the way to the bank with both critics and fans happy.

Larian managed it with a tiny Kickstarted budget. Bioware not being able to crack this is just a proof of what a pathetic corporate zombie they have become.

So, turn it into Diablo?

Just build it on the Neverwinter engine.

Because usually when a game has a sequel, you expect the game to be equally good or better. Not worse. If it was a new IP, it wouldn't have received the criticism, but it wouldn't have sold nearly as well. I'm not going to mention the game breaking bugs at launch.


I don't buy SEGA/CA games since Barbarian Invasion.

Part of the problem is that RTW is one of the best RTS's ever, but that's overlooking how generic and uninspiring RTW2 is.

Dream Theater lost their way when they tried to get heavy after the 2005 Gigantour with Megadeth. Now it's just virtuoso wankery between the guitarist and the pianist. And kicking out their old drummer was a terribly bad decision. I saw them on the Gigantour, and that guy was awe inspiring.

Eh, Progressive Metal has been growing for a while as Power Metal has added more and more Progressive elements. Don't forget that they're friends with Sym X and co-headlined a tour with them in the late 00s(as well as getting Sym X on Gigantour), and Sym X is decidedly heavier.

As far as technical masturbation, they've always been technical masturbators. The key solo in Metropolis Pt 1 is an early example.

Dream Theater hasn't made a good album in over a decade. The concept of the new one is pretty cringe worthy. If I want good progressive rock, I listen to Porcupine Tree instead.

The self-titled was pretty good. A Dramatic Turn of Events has its moments as well.

Makes quite a bit of money internationally. No reason that they can't be successful in the US given the size and diverse cultures we have.

You need a *work* visa to play in a video tournament? How? Do these players have work contracts? Health insurance? Social security?

Yes, they have contracts. For lack of a better word, they're treated like athletes. Depending on the organization, they're either 1099s or W-2s in the US(most professional athletes are W-2, employees of the team). 1099s don't have any benefits. Employees may have benefits. Each organization is different.
