I rarely watched his content, but this news still left me genuinely sad. He was a loud voice and had the same interests at heart as me.

I hate the Rage engine. It looks horrible up close and has crazy limitations.

I'm waiting for stable release, but I'll give it a try. It's definitely not for all games, but for slower games like Into The Breach or Talos Principle or Hob, I think this might not be so bad to use given you have a tablet (or a phone) and wish to stream to it. I don't really use the feature as is, though, and we have a macbook and an Zenbook in our apartment. So streaming to my other devices isn't something I do anyway.

Still good features though.

I'm not a fighting game expert, but I tried Mortal Kombat X which is a "fast" action game and the lag didn't affect the game much. It was perfectly playable. I think the real issue is that it's pretty cumbersome to stream on my phone with no stand and carry a gamepad. It could make sense for touchscreen/mouse-only games.

News Comments > No Borderlands 3 at E3?
16. Re: No Borderlands 3 at E3? May 16, 2018, 17:14 ItBurn
 
Fan expectations too high? I love Borderlands, but from what I've seen of the two sequels, it's Gearbox who aims too low. Tons of issues and annoyances that could have been easily solved in the sequels were ignored and instead we got essentially the same game thrice.
edit: and I know Gearbox didn't directly do the pre-sequel, but the blood is still on their hands.

Not much excites me nowadays(in gaming), but this does. I hope it's the real deal.

Why pay for servers when there's not enough sales to sustain it now that all the people who were gonna buy micros bought them? Might as well get some good PR from it too.

Played the games back in the day. They weren't my cup of tea. One Must Fall 2097 was a much better game with Jazz in it. Also, why the hell aren't there more Fighting games with RPG elements like OMF 2097?? That's the way to bring them to the mainstream.
Wait, Jazz was in OMF 2097? How on earth did I miss that?

And RPG elements in fighting games have given way to unique classes. Which makes it clearer to the opponent what the abilities are of a fighter.

Jazz is there, his girlfriend and the turtle are too. Link. There was a pretty deep unranked challenger mechanic in the game and you could get several skill updrages that would make your robot pull off absolutely insane things.

I want to select a fighter and upgrade him the way I want to and get money and go through some kind of open story/world. All that, but still a serious fighting game. A lot of games have tried some things, but they were either a completely new genre, or it was some kind of simple side thing with no real effort put in.

When we get amazing internet connections(in 30 years?), these kinds of services will become the only option, but for now, with the shitty connections we have, these streaming services are almost useless. I especially don't see why this one thinks it'll be successful.

I also don't get what Valve has to gain from this. Firewatch was a pretty good walking simulator. Not the best, but it had more gameplay than most. I can't wait for their next game though, it looks like such a rich idea.

What would you consider the pinnacle of the genre? Edith Finch?

I actually didn't play Edith Finch or Tacoma yet. My favorite so far was Gone Home.

Bummer about AvED getting axed. Instead we get more Grey's Anatomy and Super Star shows... Oh well. Maybe Raimi can interest Netflix or Amazon into some more AvED.

The show's ok, but nothing great. Honestly, the schtick gets old fast.

Doesn't matter, AvED is just fun to watch and I want more. I like the idea of Netflix buying it.

The property is way too old now. Kids today would be, 'Wtf is DOOM?'

Wasn't there a hugely popular new Doom in 2016?

I liked the Doom movie. It was really dumb, but it was very entertaining and I really liked the first person part.

I hope they learned from the disaster that was 3.

3 was soooo bad. They were like, "you know what Serious Fans want? Corridors and a heavy Call of Duty influence."
