News Comments > The Witcher 3 Breaks $50M Triggering Developer Payday

That's lower than i expected. With EA making a billion dollars just on micro transactions this year, I feel a bit unhappy about the situation.

Yeah, 50 million honestly seems really low to me, considering how many months this game sat at number one in sales. Although it seems that is only from the end of October 2018 until now, so about a year and a half, and the game was released in 2015 (wow 5 years already)?

I saw that message this morning. I was a bit concerned, but in the end decided it was spam or something, since I had no real way of figuring it out.

Isn't the whole point of this service is you are basically renting a gaming PC to stream to a remote location because you don't have a powerful gaming PC? Most of these games look like they'd play fine on even a phone.

News Comments > Cliff Bleszinski Says LawBreakers Too "Woke"

23. Re: Cliff Bleszinski Says LawBreakers Too Feb 5, 2020, 14:04 Saboth
 
The problem with "wokeness" in video games, comic books, etc. is most of the fans are just straight white males, and in general, most of them aren't interested in political correctness. So while the writer/artist/developer might want to be more inclusive and diversify, they are most likely going to anger way more people than they draw in.

But blaming it on that when games like Overwatch sell well...

Hrm, I loved the King's Bounty series, until they REALLY started milking it out. This game looks to be quite different; hopefully they haven't bitten off more than they can chew here.

Still, I'm looking forward to it, but this looks like a major shift in the game design.

Yeah, easily one of my favorite series ever. I agree that by the end, it felt like I'd played the same game 20 times, with slightly different landscapes and units. One of the few games I actually played through as the different classes, but they really needed some change by the last game.

At this rate, Epic is catching up fast to Steam. I'll have a library of hundreds of games I don't play on there, too.

Good for them. If it had been F2P with any kind of item shop other than cosmetics, I wouldn't have touched it.

Incels around the world were emboldened by his move, which saved both him and Mia from an extremely awkward date, where he showed up in a purple Joker suit and squirted her with his fake flower upon meeting her. Later he "went to the bathroom" in order to ditch her with the check.

Good, the moment Netflix says "yes" to ads will be the moment I'll say "no" to Netflix.

Watching on Netflix already has enough drawbacks as it is compared to local PC files.

I agree. We have "Hulu with limited ads" with our phone plan, and I barely watch it because I'm tired of 2 minutes of ads every 5 minutes. Amazon's "one ad before a show" is annoying, too. If I'm paying for your service, I don't want to watch ads, I want to watch shows.

I'm still with Intel and Nvidia (mostly because what I have can run most games fine, even on high settings). One reason I haven't thought about AMD is they have had heat and noise problems in the past. I'm not interested in complex rigs or water cooling, and noise and heat is probably just as important as FPS (maybe more so) to me. While AMD has managed to catch up in sheer speed, their thermals still seem to run very hot, unless something has changed in recent iterations.

News Comments > Joe Biden on CDA and Video Games

Yes, the billions of people who play violent video games have been trained to become killing machines. That's why we have billions of killers roaming about like the Purge every day.

After the thousands of hours I've racked up on Call of Duty, Serious Sam, Battlefront and similar games, I reckon I'm probably equal to a 12th level black belt green beret ultra marine, capable of wiping out whole towns single handedly.

"esports, where the lightning reflexes of players can benefit from technical advantages that may be lost on ordinary gamers" - yeah, sure. And these lopsided sneakers will allow me to lose weight and dunk a basketball.

So the $5,000 gaming Mac would probably be equivalent to a $1900 gaming PC. Why would it focus on esports? Esport games are usually very lenient on specs and run fine on ten year old computers.

This is actually a pretty good game. Very polished. I never finished it, though, but that's more of a testament to me losing interest in games these days rather than it being a bad game.

Meh, I don't have anything against them. Locking a game to one platform for a year isn't earth-shattering. Amazon does similar things with audio books and Kindle Unlimited. I hope they are very successful, and I also wish for GoG and other platforms to be successful. I finally took the plunge and installed the Epic client just so I could get Operencia (as I'm a sucker for dungeon crawlers).

Nothing terrible, just lacking functions I'm used to. I'm sure they'll add them over the next few months/years. Steam wielding such power over the market is bad for all gamers and the developers, too. More options lead to more games, better games, more options (like adult games) and better deals.

America could have automated taxes for most of the country by now (as most peer nations do around the world). However, the tax preparation industry has lobbied HARD to prevent this from happening so we'll be forced to use their services for no good reason. Sure, if you have complicated situations you'll still need to use a program or preparer, but for most of the country, their taxes could easily be prepared automatically.
