The hate for Microsoft in this thread makes my heart all warm and fuzzy.

Bluesnews is not dead yet

I dunno, isn't grumpy and complaining the Blueser default setting?

It sure seems like it and I know I'm guilty of it too. It just seems far easier to complain about something than to praise it. Maybe we should all try to say one positive thing along with all of our complaining on each topic we post on.

If you all don't like the game bar then why don't you just turn it off? It's very simple to do.

...I'm quite a bit worried that this is a "Shit, we're out of money, let's just release it before the Xmas period!" move.

It definitely seems like this is the case, considering, like you said, this launch came out of nowhere. I fully expect the game to be a buggy mess that doesn't perform very well at launch. At least I know that they will continue to patch the game well into the future (as long as they have enough funds).

One thing I don't understand is why they put additional development effort into being able to walk around space stations and ships. As far as I remember from X Rebirth, the space station gameplay was by far the most hated part of the game. Now in X4 they mentioned being able to stealthily infiltrate stations in order to steal technology. What X fans really care to do this? This is a spaceship sim, not a stealth game. I would have preferred if they got rid of walking around space stations entirely and focused development elsewhere.

Thanks to their continuous support, the developers were able to lower the price permanently to 29.99 EUR

Rolleyes

It's still drastically overpriced.

Why, is it a short game?

Does anyone really care?

I bought an Xbox One and subscribe to Xbox Game Pass so if this becomes a Play Anywhere game, then yes I'd prefer to play it on a PC. I don't mind playing FPS on the console, but if given the choice I'd much rather use a mouse and keyboard.

No, I meant about Halo in general.

Yes, I am still interested in Halo. They are still really good games even though they have been Xbox exclusive for a long time.

Give him some white hair, a white beard, and a scar across his face and he'll look close enough to CDPR's Geralt of Rivia. I'm glad he got the part because he's actually a big fan of The Witcher 3 and started reading the books...all before he knew about the role. It's great to have an actor who is excited and invested in the character that they are playing.

The kids want to play this with me after watching Dad of Light. I'm kind of reticent to get 3 copies for $60, then have to pay $13 per month per person on top of that.

Anything similar to this that's cheaper?

How similar does it need to be to FFXIV? Guild Wars 2 and Elder Scrolls Online have an initial cost but don't have a sub fee and are quality MMORPGs. There's also Neverwinter, which I've never played, but it looks pretty good and is free to play. NCSOFT, Nexon, Webzen, Trion Worlds, and Perfect World all have some other fantasy free to play MMORPGs.

Does anyone care about the Onimusha games anymore? Why would Capcom even bother remastering this?

Creston wrote on Aug 28, 2018, 21:26:
Literally Everything gets remastered, but do you think EA is smart enough to remaster Mass Effect?

Have you played Mass Effect recently? It has not aged well, especially the vehicle gameplay.

I don't mind nudity as long as it doesn't feel forced and it doesn't feel as if I'm watching a porn video. I would also like it if nudity was equal to both genders (and I'm heterosexual btw). I find it ridiculous when media has no problem showing plenty of female nudity but then when it comes to male nudity they film from weird camera angles and there are neatly placed props to cover up the man's penis. I remember seeing plenty of female nudity in the Witcher 3 but not once did they show Geralt's dong. Why the inequality?

I don't recall Witcher 3 showing any Vulva's (the closest to the male equivalent you're referring to twice), so I'm not sure where this 'inequality' lies...

A vulva is much more difficult to see as a character is moving around than a penis and scrotum. I know they had to find camera angles to not show that part of Geralt. Obviously male and female body private parts are not comparable, but it just seems unnatural to show plenty of female breasts and then when it comes to male penises they purposefully hide them. If they're going to show nudity then just let it be natural and stop these stupid camera angles and items to obscure it.

Isn't "brigade" a bit misleading? Shouldn't it be "Strange Squad" or "Strange Tiny Team of Diversity"?

Yep, a brigade is typically 1,000 to 5,500 soldiers, so they definitely used the word incorrectly to describe a group of four people.

Looks like the review scores are the typical review scores Rebellion gets (in the 70-80 range).

I'm sure there will be the Mikepence Burqa Bikini mod that covers up those naughty bits for prudes who can't control their feelz.

Getting back to Cyberpunk, in the gameplay segment the nudity just felt entirely forced. #1 It was the first gameplay shown in the demo. #2 Why are the woman's breasts right in front of the camera? When you carry someone in your arms their chest would not be right in front of your eyes.

I'll get flak but I don't care...

I'm no prude but there was just SO much cursing. Seemed like it was there just to be there to shock the kids. Annoyed me.

I felt the same way. I don't have a problem with cursing but it just seemed forced, especially when they said some corny ass line such as "cleaner than a cunt in a convent." It's obvious they are trying to push the whole 'adult' theme front and center because they also featured a nude female right in the beginning of the gameplay demo and they also stuck her right in front of the camera (will we also get to see a penis right in front of the camera just to keep things equal?).

Seems like they are desperate to show off how 'mature' their game is and it just comes off as way too forced.

Damn those prices are high! Is this nVidia's strategy to clear out the stock of the 10-series cards? I was thinking of getting a 2060 when it comes out, but seeing as the 2070 is $500, the 2060 is not going to be within the price range I'm willing to pay for a video card. Looks like I'll be buying a GTX 1060 or RX 580 after all.

If Star Citizen and Squadron 42 ultimately fail (which is highly likely), I can see Chris Roberts and CIG fans putting the blame on Crytek. "If we hadn't been sued by Crytek we could have used all of that money spent on legal fees to actually finish the games."

The monster design is praised somehow, while I find them fucking ridiculous and impossible. People accurately described one monster as a "lizard owl".
It looked as ridiculous as that description sounds.
How can your immersion not be broken if a half-turkey half-tiger comes jumping out of the water?!

It's called fantasy for a reason. Do you have the same complaints about any game that has centaurs, manticores, chimeras, griffons, pegasuses, owlbears, etc. in it?

I don't know exactly why, but whenever I see anything about Fortnite, I think they're talking about the next Everquest version that was being worked on. Wasn't it cancelled? Beats me why I keep getting them mixed up. Maybe because I don't play either. BR has never had any kind of appeal to me whatsoever. Then again, most multiplayer games don't appeal to me, unless they have a major PVE component or a single-player half. Guess I'm in a shrinking minority... *shrugs*

=-Rigs-=

Yeah, Everquest Next and Landmark were both cancelled.

I'm in the same boat as you. These days I'd much rather play a single player or co-op game rather than a multiplayer game. The only way I'm playing a multiplayer only game (outside of MMORPGs and co-op) is if it's free-to-play. Round after round of the same thing just doesn't appeal to me anymore.
