News Comments > Valve Cashing Out of Bitcoin

Hypocritical...

Valve skims 5% off marketplace sales and another 10% if it's their own title! Because handling a $2 transaction is harder for them to process than a $200?!

Some funny one liners but mostly contemptuous remarks.

There are performances, plot twists, imagry, musical scores, quotes, etc from all of the movies on that list (or at least the ones Iíve seen) that stand out to me and influenced my perspective(s), and Iím glad I watched those films.

Iíve been trying the free trial... took me three sessions to make it to the base camp. I just found it so boring to get through the initial set pieces. Usually AAA titles kill the opener, but this one has been a dud so far.

Maybe my progression to level 7 will reveal something interesting.

Sell hats, gun skins, and a chance at a sweet looking knife that doesn't physically alter your abilities in game, not ingame skills. Makes Valve more money than God

Valve doesn't pump out a new TF2 or CSGO every year

EA wants full game price sales plus DLC plus microstransactions... and they want to sell you the same shit again and again, year after year.

It's called greed, and +4 billion dollars in annual revenue.

News Comments > Project CARS 2 Demo Released

The problem with racing games is that EVERY gamer wants to WIN. I watch a lot of motorsports and often there are far more compelling stories than who won the race.

So developers need to inject missions/objectives including the use of scripted scenarios. And they need to add personality to each AI driver by developing a story around them. It's not that hard to do, real-life stories are abundant and they need to just copy those over.

As for the demo:

+ VR Looks fantastic, perhaps the best looking racing game I've seen. It works well with default values which adjusted quality accordingly to ensure high frame rates.
+ Weather effects are nifty (only rain in the demo) with treacherous standing water and wet rumble strips.
+ Polished menus and presentation.
+ Asking the "Engineer" to fix your car through layman's terms is smart for non-gear-heads.

- Engine noise was waaaaaay to high, I had to drop it significantly. Also, they've used positional audio to your own engine so if you turn an ear away from engine (ie looking at an apex), it deafens the engine to that ear. No other sim I play does that, and I found it disorienting and not realistic to my own experiences in loud cars/bikes.
- AI was average or worse, couldn't find settings to adjust it.
- My wheel is only providing very weak feedback, making it difficult to feel grip or when it transitions to a slide, and I'm using the Jack Spade FFB files.
- Some graphics glitches and a couple crashes.
- It seems like all other PC sims provide better handling and physics, but I don't yet have my wheel working properly.

I think this could be better than Forza Motorsport 7, but having recently raced GT Sport on a PS4 with a Thrustmaster T-GT, I think Polyphony has the upper hand right now in the simcade genre.

VR works, but had trouble getting my pedals to be detected.

Default FFB is very light, trying out the custom files from the pcar forums which everyone seems to recommend.

Downloading now, only 3.4gb compared to +20gb for the Forza Motorsport demo.

Red Bull Ring is a hellova good time, and those cars could be fun.

Hopefully itís not feature neutered and I can try the VR support

Billion dollar industries are built on exploiting parents/children with gambling like systems...

Diamond Dig It anyone?

My 5-year-old cousin was watching this on YouTube, both parents didn't mind because she was at least being quiet...

All of this is simply a result of capitalism+consumerism, and there are plenty of sheep out there to shear. These corporations hope you never look up as they lead you into consumption addiction and butcher you in a casino, endless DLC content that never transfers to the next game, endless super-early-amazing-savings-Black-Friday sales, or opioid addiction.

Made in America.

Still boring as fuck really, overwatch is just a really oversimplified multiplayer shooter that anyone who is old has played before and played better.

It really exists only because it was released by blizzard and unto the cult of bliz fans. The game is just very boring over time. It just can't hold a candle to past fps games esp if you grew up on them in the 90's.


Overwatch is just like modern blizzard - all flash, no substance.

Speaking as someone who's been playing FPSes since the original Wolfenstein came out, you are objectively wrong. Name one FPS from the 90s that had melee tanks with AOE shields, pudge hooks, time rewinds, etc. I asked you this before but you just flat out ignored it because mechanics like this simply didn't exist back in the day.

It's fine if you don't like the game, but at this point your ignorant ramblings are just pathetic.


Dude, have you forgotten all the quake mods? TF had classes and game play style. runes had CRAZY powers. no, it wasn't exactly like overwatch, but they set ALL this up. If I remember correctly, there was even a top down mod for quake like current MOBAs.

So why knock Blizzard who took some of those influences, added their own ideas for gameplay and powers, built a whole universe with backstories, comics, and animated shorts which tie into all art and atmospheric design choices within the game?

If you donít dig it, thatís fine. But it certainly is different enough from any of its predecessors with so much more polish that it should be considered a unique franchise.

I disagree! Todayís shooters come with waaaay more salt!

My favourite mode is Mystery Heroes because it canít really be trolled, and Iíd rather lose to a random team composition than in a quickplay/competitive match that has smurfs, non-team players, or those that refuse to change their hero selection to counter the other team.

No, it's a good change, cheaters buy the cheapest game on steam (some obscure indy title) to get active legit account and then they buy CS:GO and cheat for 4 weeks, ban repeat. Costs like 3$ a month due to russians having worthless currency and prices adapt to that.

An account with only CS:GO played should throw up all 99 red flags, if cheat reports are massive and from OWN team then they get banned. Sounds fair to me.

I agree, it is a good change, but itís not just for cheaters.

Itís more likely that people are voting kicking each other or forfeiting because someone on the team:
- Is not working with the team because of whatever reason (sometimes difficult to discern from Overwatch review)
- Is trolling the mic, radio commands, chat scripts (blocked from Overwatch review)
- Is gameplay trolling the team (refuses to buy a primary, blocks or uses utility to disrupt teammates, deliberately tanking or team attacking.. but that stuff can be caught in Overwatch)
- Is constantly going AFK throughout the match (can be confirmed through Overwatch)

But in order for Overwatch to be more effective, they NEED to make it mandatory. For example, a player loses rank if they donít play for 4 weeks. Why not also require that player to review 3 cases every 4 weekís?

OR positively reinforce Overwatch with skin drops, or in this case, maybe it increases your ďTrustĒ rating.

Thanks mobile gamers, for being addicted to shitty time wasting titles and their payment schemes. Now our big PC titles are being pillaged for profit because of your poor consumption practices.
