Randy with his delusions of grandeur does not determine where the game is going to be sold. 2K announced when the game was revealed that it's Epic exclusive for 6 months and then will be sold elsewhere. They didn't specify where yet, but Steam is a safe bet, along with wherever else Borderlands and other 2K titles are currently available.

It's pretty fun, but it can be very frustrating at times. It's nice to find something new to learn. Recommend footman as your first class and just spam thrust.

So it's exactly like Chivalry.

Why does it require a persistent internet connection, I wonder?

Randy is on something he shouldn't be and/or off something he should... which isn't a new thing, but developing BL3 behind closed doors stopped his nonsense from spewing all over the place for a blessed while. Maybe he should get started on the next game sooner rather than later.

25 million installs of the ten or so freebies they've done so far? How many millions of users do they have again?

I haven't picked it up yet, but will as soon as gmg has it back in stock. Not sure how a digital code can go "out of stock" but it's been like this for weeks.

I'm glad the game is doing well. I've had fun with the beta

Third party sites do not have key generators, they have to acquire batches of codes from publishers same as retailers get shipments of physical copies.

Samsung thinks millennials want vertical TVs.

Rocket launches and long document editing. That's the only time you should use a vertical screen.

Humans evolved as plains dwellers. Viewing the world in landscape mode is our default setting.

Beyond the clickbait headline, they explain this new TV rotates to support horizontal or vertical, which is meant for embiggulating things from your smartphone screen/camera. A niche usage befitting its place in Samsung's line of designer TVs that cost 5x the normal price because they're made to look nice even when not in use, like high-end furniture.

They're always full of snark, just read any page of their website. The FAQ for Satisfactory is particularly silly and generally unhelpful.

Man, how I've come to hate the term waifu.

Was it ever a good and useful term?

No. Truth be told, I always hated it, but now it seems to bleed out of the anime community and into general internet parlance, it's even more annoying.

I thought it just meant anime chick?

Only the ones you like-like.

Lol, the trailer is actually kinda funny, they're definitely lampooning Mass Effect.

When you smokers end up with lung cancer I pity your last days struggling to breathe until you choke to death. That is a horrific way to die. Having seen it, I would ask that you stay away from putting smoke in your lungs.

Funny how the horrible, capitalistic greedy cigarette companies encouraged smoking, and how evil they were.
But now, pot is awesome, no no harmful effects at all, hey let's legalized it everywhere. Anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong. And we're not like those evil companies at all, because we care about your health.

Marlboro Greens are coming, guaranteed. And they'll be stuffed full of additives same as their tobacco cigs.

Why's it called "In Defense of Aliens"? Isn't the exact opposite happening here?

'Defending Cute & Cuddly Aliens from Mean & Scary Aliens' isn't quite as catchy.

It's sad how costume make-up has been conflated with *that* now... We are way too bored/complacent as a species.

So a Jedi version of Force Unleashed.. Not very creative, but it should be fun unless they really went out of their way to screw it up.

They Are Billions is definitely to thank for proving RTS is still something people want. I'm happy to see a publisher giving the genre a chance again, even if they're being safe with a copy-cat game.

Soul Calibur 4 split the Star Wars characters based on console. PS3 had Darth Vader and Xbox 360 had Darth Vader. Then a few months after release you could buy the other character as a $5 DLC.

And it was indeed shitty.

So both had actually Darth Vader but you could still buy... uhm... *headexplodes*

Sorry, I don't get it.

That's a brain fart, one console had Vader and the other Yoda.

Well I don't know the character because I didn't play that Telltale spin-off, and apparently most people are in the same boat because it did not do well in sales. They pulled all but a handful of devs from the project before the five episodes were done, which was itself a compromise when they wanted to cancel it completely. Why would you spend the money on an expensive actor for a role so few are familiar with? A small portion of hardcore fans will be disappointed, but nobody else will notice.

PayPal is such a shitty service for sellers to use, even eBay is in the process of phasing them out... It won't matter how buyer-friendly they are if nobody accepts it anywhere, which in light of changes such as this is likely to happen sooner rather than later. And now that most major banks have their own systems for instant cash transfer between individuals, there's no need to use PayPal for that, either. They can eat a dick for all I care.

Why is there an issue with people leaving a battle royale game early? (serious question.)

I mean, if there's four left and 2 leave early, then the two who are left are 1 and 2, what's the big deal?

At least for now, Apex is a team-based game, you're forced to play in squads of three.

This just makes me wonder how shitty the co-op experience is going to be, since I assume they won't be using Steamworks for online functionality anymore if the game gonna be exclusive to Epic... They can barely be bothered to keep up with ensuring their own Fortnite Save the World operates without massive lag, connection issues, and random server-side data loss.
