This response sums up why Blizzard can keep getting away with this stuff. Their customer base is truly brain dead.

Gamers generally are braindead...

First with mmo's - monthly subscription for a game you don't own and can be taken away from you...

Then with steam drm in 2004, CS/half-life.

Then with league of legends, selling "flags" to display skins in a game you don't own made them mega bucks. After league of legends success, everyone piles on to f2p/drm/lock down game bandwagon.

I really can't stand inXile anymore. They have the nerve to deliver a Torment (!)two and a half years(!) late while shamelessly running campaigns for other games in the meantime.

Duh, the last 20 years of gaming has been nothing but gamers rationalizing the game industry has their best interests at heart...

First it was mmo's and the smart set complained about RPG games on PC being taken away and rebranded to be drm'd and switched over to "gaming as a service" mmo's paved the way for steam and online drm. That and the fact that gaming doesn't work when you connect the worlds stupid population to big corporations via broadband.

The only way you could conceivable not be screwed by big gaming corps is being physically close to balance the transaction otherwise they will just steal everything that isn't nailed down because the customers are too far away to influence business practices.

-Always been allergic to the libertarian "muh freedumb market" cult...
-Always been allergic to open world games too...

Probably just a coincidence tho.

Open world games are really a fad started by gta tragically, gta catered to the lowest common denominator and everyone tried to ape it. Really open world is pretty crap it makes development easier for developers to split the game into essentially minigames within a larger level hub. That's what 'open world' is really about. Shadow warrior 2 suffered from its 'open world design', its a fun game but the flow/story of the single player really suffered because of it. Sure must have made it easier to develop though to split it up into hubs different teams could work on in parallel.

Actually small-c communism (more precisely, *actual* Marxism) makes perfect sense in a post-scarcity world, which we're only a few generations away. We're seeing the very beginning of it now.

You're under the dangerous assumption capitalist relations will suddenly change just because there is abundance. There is abundance now in rich nations and the rich still hoard their wealth. AKA think of all the empty buildings the rich own that could be used to house people, everytime a house remains empty it's not efficiently used.

I feel like there's something they could do to help match making.

It's called removing the drm and giving dedicated servers. Not like that's going to happen though with the fucking loot boxes.

These SSDs are getting so crazy fast. They are way past the point where gamers see any improvement from more speed (load times etc, are now primarily limited by the actual CPU workload performed on the assets), but for more demanding workloads its just fantastic.

Latency and memory bandwidth are the main bottlenecks since memory speed is not keeping up with CPU speed and hasn't for a while.

As for MMOs or other online only games, the nature of these games inherently prevent your idea of "ownership".

No they don't, quake 3 and unreal touranment called and also warcraft 2 over Kali, we had "online games" back then dumbass, all an "Mmo" is, is an rpg with the server held hostage on the other side of the internet. which was proven with private ultima shards that people played for free on.

Not to mention private wow servers to avoid the sub fee, though outside of popular games most mmo's won't have private servers due to lack of interest from programers/reverse engineers.

So when new games "shut down" forever it will be because of morons like you all.

See what game companies ultimately want here:

Nice rant but missing the point and generally lacking in facts.

You mean your whole post? Almost all modern AAA games no longer release dedicated servers or level editors. #2, steam is drm, and drm means your software is chained to the other side of the internet (uplay, steamworks, etc). AKA it requires you to use steam in order to play multiplayer it has drm. UT2004 and Quake 3 are nothing like modern games that come with in built matchmaking that has servers running at corporate headquarters and cane be 'shut down' at a moments notice, if the multiplayer of the game can be turned off, it's not your game. You're merely renting the game. We saw the same shit with the rise of denuvo and 'checkins'.

>The traditional MMO subscription model is basically dead, which is why almost every MMO has gone F2P.

Is it? Last I checked there's still plenty of mmo's around. F14, Wow is still going and many others. The whole problem with mmo's are the are just drm'd games where the player never gets control of the game, and the industry is overwhelmingly pushing against game ownership as we've seen with quake going 'f2p' aka a game you never own that wants money dumped into it.

So the poor suckers who pay anything for in game currency get the shaft should the company ever decide to "shut down the game". Probably the dumbest thing in all of gaming is that drm'd rpg's (I refuse to call them 'mmo's, that's marketing') is that the corporate worlds quest to kill gamer ownership.

So no any game program that wants money from us that can be 'shut down' or 'disappeared' by the corporate world is against our long term interests.

Renting content in general is stupid.

What do you think MMO's are? Steam's drm? Diablo 3? Starcraft 2? Path of exile? "matchmaking" integration where the server exe is never released? (fall of cybertron and many other games).

This ship flew long ago when people were dumb enough to pay for mmo's the ultimate game you pay for but never own. Once that took off f2p and microtransactions were inevitable since mmo's is where they all got there start.

That small percentage of humanity that enabled league of legends and other f2p games to thrive is what has killed gaming. Doubly so for the MMO player who pays for mounts INSIDE an MMO he/she is already paying for.

Look at the gouging in world of warcraft - they know the average gamer is just bum fuck retarded.

He mad.

UWP isn't a closed system, anyone can develop for it,

Man you aren't seeing the writing on the wall. Microsofts goal has always been embrace, extend extinguish. Companies are not your friends, the exist at war with their customers and other companies. Basically UWP is the first move to virtual sandboxes and encrypted computing by microsoft. The saw what Valve and MMO/F2P developers did in gaming and want that kind of profits. Basically league of legends, valve newell and asian mmo/f2p devleopers taught the corporate world - take away your customers right to own or control the software and you will profit. Since most people are too stupid to understand how sophisticated corporations are at undermining your rights they are mostly oblivious to the dangers.

It's nice to finally hear you admit that you're out of touch instead of insisting that a scam is afoot

The reality is the vast majority of mankind is dumb thats why facebook and snapchat exists. Basically these companies feed off the fact that the average human being on our planet is a grade A fuckin moron.

That's a bizarre critique. Planescape: Torment wasn't exactly super-mechanically-deep. Nearly no loot, extremely limited classes, etc.

No shit, the game is almost 20 plus years old. It was made shortly after baldurs gate using the same gangrene infinity engine. Baldurs gate had the same issue. All the infinity engine games were just vehicles to get the nerd money. They had atrocious combat system and loot and even the designers admitted it. The thing that makes torment was the story that's why its remembered not so much the game elements. Rather the world, characters and story.

Gabe has always taken action to avoid doing the wrong thing or having wrong things done to his customers. Can't really say that about anyone else.

Say what? The man paved the way for online DRM, same with early mmo's like ultima and everquest. Gabe is the asshole king everyone game had steam crapware infested in it. I'd never thought I'd see the day where starcraft 2 and diablo 3 had online drm in them them.

Right now most games are broken and the server/multiplayer code is matchmaking retard bullshit that's held hostage by the game company. So if they can 'shut down' the fucking multiplayer!! So glad unreal tournament and Quake 3 can't be shut down like 90% of modern games.

I'm still annoyed at Origin because Mass Effect 3 was released as a Origin-exclusive title on the PC

You shouldn't be annoyed, anyone who supported MMO's and steam this is the natural result of ok'ing online drm. Gamers are so fucking stupid it's hilarious. It first started as a small flame with Ultima online and everquest. Anyone who paid for those DRM'd online rpg's basically paved the way for 'games as a service', aka removal of your rights as a gamer to own, control the game and not have part of it taken hostage on the other side of the internet. When's the last time we got dedicated server exe's and level editors with a modern AAA release?

It's a crazy anomaly though, in the age of Denuvo, for a major release like this to be cracked so quickly.


What's hilarious is far cry primal only sold 300,000 units, so despite being uncracked for 2 years we have overwhelming evidence that if you make a shit game and DRM it perfectly, it won't help your sales. I think in far cry primals case is the game is so bad no one wants to crack it.

I would really like it if AMD finally came up with a competitive PC mainstream CPU. They haven't had any success in that segment (when compared to Intel) since back in the Athlon days. Competition is good.

The problem is compeitition won't solve the performance issue, multi-core was a reaction to the fact processor performance hit a brick wall and multi-core is kludge stop gap solution. Multiple cores only work in certain situations with certain workloads and program types. Processor performance has stalled for about a decade. AMD has been playing catchup since core 2 duo was released and they've basically been slaughtered ever since.

For a CPU that's supposed to come out in less than 50 days there sure isn't a lot of tangible info about it...

It's going to be another bulldozer, let's be honest CPU's have hit a brick wall in terms of performance and AMD was forced to sell their foundry. Basically the process and R&D lead of intel because all that criminal shit Intel did way back in the pentium 4 days starved AMD of funds and profits they needed to sustain themselves R&D. The management of AMD has just been fucking incompetent. Basically AMD is dying a slow death and has been just surviving.

Their acquisition of ATI was just bizarre and caused them to lose focus, basically they are doing what 3Dfx did. 3dfx stopped trying to be just a chip company like nvidia was and bought STB to sell their own branded videocards and ended up trying to do much and losing focus and then 3dfx chips got behind and 3dfx went bankrupt. Basically management tries to do do many things with limited funds and they end up screwing up their company they simply can never pick a god damn direction and stick with it. AMD's problem has been a bad luck /w intels anti competitive tactics + lack of focus. AMD had a chance way back in the day when it was competitive but "free" performance from process nodes shrinks stopped for both intel and amd because of heat/leakage and other problems they didn't totally forsee.

I remember when intel boasted we'd have 10-30ghz cpu's in the future and that was a decade ago. So much for 10Ghz CPU's, it's taken almost a decade to get get an extra 1GHZ or so above 3.4ghz Pentium4's and core 2 duo's.

Anyone finding HR to be a bad or poorly handled game is absolutely insane.

Yeah, differences of opinions and all, but there's no way to call it bad.

Sorry to tell ya but HR was console trash. It was everything DX was not. The ending of HR and the world of human revolution was just bad, the boss fights were nonsensical and really fucked up the game, the enemies you had to fight were just not interesting in the least.

The directors cut fucked up the game. DX was just not that great a franchise to begin with outside the first game. The DX world didn't feel right in HR at all.
