I blame it on preorders too though. Too many people preorder and it gives the developers/publishers this feeling that they already got you and your money. Add to the fact that they got anxious because they had to drop the PS4 release for X-mas to make the corporate big wigs happy and it was a recipe for disaster. Basically a half cooked game taken out too soon.
Eh, IMO they screwed up because they wanted to please everyone. They should have dropped the last gen hardware. Which... would have locked them out of the console market at that time, because next gen generally was not available. Their technology was just not up to what the game required for that hardware. That or delay an additional year, which is what happened anyway if you wanted a better experience at launch.

Yeah that is very true. They should have never dropped it on a platform that couldn't handle it. All that time could of been better spent finishing up the PS5/PC versions and you'd have a heck of a lot less pissed off buyers.
They got greedy.

Judging by the classic wow subreddit, the game sounds pretty sweaty. Despite it being my favorite expansion and having many fond memories of it, frankly, I've got better things to do than relive this game.

Think I'll rock this 5600X for several more years and then upgrade to a 5800X3D later. I'm not ready to get off air cooling, and DDR5 prices need to fall before I change my whole system over.
Besides, with my Steam Deck, do I even need a beefy PC anymore? Arguably not -- but I'm not quite ready to put my money where my mouth is and sell off my PC...

This article is spot on. The last time I went looking for guides was for Elden Ring, and most guides don't even bother to use applicable tags, they just apply ALL THE TAGS, so if you select Weapons from the guide listing, you still get guides on enemies, full walkthroughs, achievements, etc. And then there's the plethora of "How to shoot" "How to walk" "How to crouch" "guides". It hadn't occurred to me that users post these to accumulate Steam Points but that does make sense. Valve needs to come up with some solution here because some game guides sections are so messy that I don't even bother, I just use my phone to browse Google for guides now.

Playing Elden Ring on that tiny display and tinny speakers... that is mega-sad. If there ever was a game to immersively play it would be that one...
I play it on my 24" PC monitor, my 42" TV, and my little 8" Steam Deck. All three are great. It plays really well when streamed from my PC to the Deck, but the Deck itself can handle 30 or 40FPS just fine.

I quite liked this game but eventually reached my skill ceiling and was getting pwned left and right. I wish the game had custom or dedicated servers, or a server browser. The champion abilities didn't bother me that much, it was just an extra little quirk on top of the arena slug fest. I liked playing the chick on the roller blades, I wasn't that great at skating around but it was still fun.

"They're a 10 but they only like playing single-player games." - EA

Perhaps now EA will see that single-player games can be amazing and profitable.

People took that tweet waaaaaay out of context. Which makes sense, most of the people taking it out of context are the type that constantly take everything out of context.

"I love my girlfriend, but she'll only eat pizza" doesn't mean pizza is bad, just means that most people want to date someone that occasionally eats other things.
It's very different from "I love my girlfriend, but she eats pizza."

The people that care more about feeling right rather than being right seem to miss the word "only."
They tweeted that line. It was a tweet: there was no context. Please explain the context we are missing?
They even already issued an apology tweet: "Roast well deserved. We'll take this L cause playing single player games actually makes them an 11." So they immediately backpedaled and admitted that playing single player games makes someone a great partner.

Never tried it, but my friend swears by GeForce Now (his ancient i5-2500K+GTX960 cannot do RDR2 or CP77 justice). I've had very good experiences with Steam Remote Play, including streaming emulated Breath of the Wild (with mods) from my home PC to my phone on the other side of the city.
Until we get competing Netflix-like streaming services it seems GFN or homebrew remain the top solutions.

Is anyone surprised? This project was a disaster from the very start. But of course, Ubisoft is just going to polish up what they currently have to disguise it as a completed game
That trailer was something else. How to make your game look boring in one easy step!

I haven't played an AC game since being so bored with Revelations that I never finished it. I just got too easy and repetitive later in the game. I think there have been approximately 400 AC games released since then. Are there any that are worth investing the time in?
Depends on who you ask. I really enjoyed Origins and Odyssey, but the combat stays more or less the same throughout the game, with enemies levelling alongside you, so while at level 2 it takes 10 swipes to kill a guy, at level 50 it takes 20 swipes to kill a guy. They gave enemies backstab resistance, so you can't just backstab everyone stealthily. However, Origins is such an excellent portrayal of Egypt in a video game. I really liked the second DLC which sends you to the afterlife, great imagery there. Odyssey was great too especially when you get to some of the more tropical islands, but that game eventually overstays its welcome.

Wait for a cheap sale - Origins for $10 is worth checking out. I'm ignoring the latest one...

Important note: The indie dev behind those mods has the RDR2 and Mafia VR mods locked behind a Patreon paywall. He says in his interview that he believes the DMCA claim is more about copyright than licensing so he doesn't think it has to do with money, but then he says he makes $20,000 per month from patreon subs.
fortunately sometimes some kind souls put these projects up on Ye Olde Bay. No way I am paying monthly sub fees for unfinished mod files lol

From that standpoint, I feel really good about it as an introduction to 'Diablo'.

You feel good about selling Pay To Win gambling mechanics after you've gotten the player hooked on a sense of progression?
These people are absolutely shameless. They should own up and go work for BP and Shell and Big Tobacco, it's where they belong.

To think self-regulation in any market can be a success is incredibly naïve.

It's like thinking that a Police station accused of something being investigated by the same police station is ever gonna find anyone guilty of anything.

Might as well let people accused of murder/rape investigate their own crimes.
It's simply not in their interests to find themselves guilty ( for the most part ).
Same as it's not in any market's interests to self-regulate themselves out of profits.
Right, but the games industry has been parroting for the last two three decades that they can safely self-regulate, and yet here we are witnessing the once-proud Blizzard selling slot machine pulls for $XX dollars a pop. The game is supposedly rated 15+ but is there anything to stop a child with a phone from downloading the game? Or spending money? This game should be 18+ based on the MTX model I've seen from all the reports I've read about how it operates.
This game is just a clear example of why ESRB needs to step aside, and a new regulatory body should be spun up to regulate MTX design in games. It's extremely predatory.
