I have no problem with them delaying this game. If X-Com: Enemy Unknown and Enemy within are anything to go by then I say let them delay. That way the more awesome problem free game will come out later.

One of the downsides to moving to Germany is that Youtube Streams are automatically blocked by default. My wife gave me a thing to bypass Germany's auto blocking system thing though, for Youtube videos it might work.

uh... what? are you being serious? all of youtube is blocked in germany? what on earth for? i thought germany was one of the more rational countries in europe.

No just the Streaming aspect, infact some of my music is autoblocked as well, requiring a work around. There version of the US's RIAA is murder over here.

Well that title was click-bait in its purest form. But having read the article, yes, yes it is ok to be mean to a mean player in the game. It also adds to the idea of replayability and multiple paths to the different endings.

True, although I think the article misses one of the better "being mean to the players" game experiences of recent memory- Spec Ops The Line.

I mean, it's obvious you're not meant to be a hero after the "bad thing" happens, but the end monologue of the guy you've been going after for the whole game is pretty much directed arguably at you as much as the character.

Spec Ops left me with the most questions about what the heck was going on. I instantly chose the surrender ending cause holy crap the char needed help badly, so best to surrender.

Yeahup thats a nasty scam really. But its appealing to the base desires of sexually active people and if you read the rules, it promises alot. So of course your going to get people to sign up and then Black mail them to cover it up. And cover it not delete it.

And here we go, starting to limit Streaming. But at least its staying within its own system I suppose. Not a big deal to me, but when you give companies an inch they take a mile, and your wallet... and the keys to your car, along with your car.

Ohh I get it, Law Breakers, as in there are not only breaking laws they are breaking the laws of gravity. I see what you did there cliffyB. You PC hating pile of chum. I remember your words for Gears of War and no I'm not going to let him slide with a new game no matter how much he is licking a Mouse with his tongue compared to when he was sucking the end of a console controller.

News Comments > Call of Duty: Black Ops III PC Closed Beta Begins
5. Re: Call of Duty: Black Ops III PC Closed Beta Begins Aug 26, 2015, 14:09 ZeroPike1
 
Because you’re a PC player, you know that this is a different animal from console development. So, there are a few things you should know about the Black Ops 3 PC Beta…

Final optimizations and final Advanced Graphics features are not included in the PC Beta; however, you can expect that these will be in the final game. We typically spend the last couple of months before launch finalizing graphics features and optimizations on PC. Also, the final optimized drivers from our hardware partners will also come later. (Because this isn’t your first rodeo, you know that this is normal.)

And Because we are PC players we know that when a company says Beta it usually means a Mid-to-Late term Alpha build. Seen this pop up on my Steam as well. I cannot consider it, I went out on MW:3 era anyways.

I think he might have hid his story plot a little too well this time. Even The Game Theorists dismissed it quickly. Ohh well. The wave is kinda over anyways and I think he sees that in the way he talks about it. Man rode the wave of his games popularity, I do not have a problem with that.

Living abroad you see that its not a big deal. I could have a US flag hanging out of my apartment here and nobody would really care. But If I flew this countries flag here I would be looked at as a Nationalist, which here is seen as a sign of aggression to others. In reality, outside of the US, things work a little different depending on where you are of course.

Perhaps the reason there aren't rows and rows of PC games on the shelves anymore is because of Steam and other digital only sellers, hmmm? I don't know when the last time I bought software on a disc.

Yeah that was my sentiment, It was the coming of age for Steam and Digital Distro platforms. And companies did jump on it when they could so of course the shelves of PC games were disappearing.

I will not leave PC gaming cause of Quinn and the rest of that GG mess from hell. Without all the drama surrounding that person and the GG mess, I really would not care or notice they existed, even if they made a game or two.

Honestly you could have 100's of school kids killed in a gun rampage, and the only answer you will hear most is to have more guns out there to stop other people with guns.

Stupidity abounds with school shootings really.

Youtube = Steam
Watchable = Windows Live

At least in my mind. Unless they can attract a good following & out-do Youtube's terrible auto-copyright take down thing. It will go the way of Niko-Niko and be a mostly forgotten alternative.

I love New Vegas, a fallout game that was really good. Not hyped for F4 based on Obsidian not having a role. It will just be some thing like F3 which was, forgettable for me.

Yeah mostly commercials. You should see how German Television works. 10-15mins of the show your watching, then 5mins of non-stop commercials. And the Networks time it so when its commercials on one network its commercials on all. It leads to odd programming times too, some shows end 10-15mins past the hour. And its perfectly normal here, in the US normal people would throw a fit over this setup.

"No—at least not according to Unangst: "We are not intending to compete with Steam," he told me, "If anything, we want Steam to be even more successful—they've done great things for PC gamers in terms of having a single store.

"Over time do we want more developers to come over to our store and offer it in addition to Steam? Absolutely. Is competition good for people? Absolutely. But our goal right now isn't to do anything else other than support Steam and help it run great on Windows 10."


This man is not getting it. Supporting Steam does not mean just putting a few of your games up to sell and putting your own DRM Window's Live on it? Supporting steam would have been letting Steam handle the DRM, letting Steam Handle the multiplayer networking instead of the mess of Live.
