DST is there because the man just wants to screw over everyone's circadian rhythm twice a year.

It's the same number of daylight, no matter. People can adjust to the slow creeping the morning and evening naturally, rather than make everyone grumpy and jumpy twice year.

We should all base our time off time zone sundials, problem solved.

Ah yes the slow decent into F2P, P2W hell. Their expenses outrun their income so, they remove the barrier to entry, but keep the P2W in game item sales all for an unfinished unpolished turd with slick Willy marketing.

Is it just me or is this demo way out of focus and fuzzy?

And whats with making armor marines look like hospital orderlies?

What's old becomes new again, just a bit more dumbed down each time.
Been there done that, don't see anything here that is an improvement on Quake, Unreal Tournament, Tribes, etc.

Blizzard jumps on the failed premise that what FPS needs is more detail.

Anyone who plays any FPS competitively, always runs at the lowest resolution for the fastest performance.

For truth in advertising they need to release some game play vids running at the lowest resolution. Really who needs another Quake, Unreal Tournament, etc.?

Guy makes a decent try to avoid the worst part of UWP while making a case for MS providing timely updates, which we all know is a fantasy given their track record.

The main focus of the whole move, which he avoids, is to monopolize trade in all things PC, just as Apple as done with all things Apple.
MS already owns and fails pretty bad at updates and maintenance. This is just more fail with a huge monopolist market gatekeeper grab tacked on.

This corporate group think and me-too-ism at it's worst.

I am glad the PC is not the homoginized dumbed down product for the masses that consoles are. I quite happy with the current state of PC games and could care less if it is not something that is partaken by every knuckle dragger, mouth breathing, subteen with electricity on the planet.

Typical GW2 hype, they talk the talk, but don't walk the walk.
Most of "the work" goes into a never ending plethora of jumping puzzles, cheesy mini games, and bad voice acting.

The only thing unique here is that you get to name things you find first and the name sticks for everyone.

Boy will those 12 year olds have fun with that. BiggusButtas, a large gas giant, etc...

They even copied GW2's promo vids showing maxed out toons p0wning groups of low level mobs with one AOE move, that in reality is pretty worthless against mobs at the same level or higher than the player.

That's like showing a level 100 WOW rogue clearing a low level dungeon wing with one Fan of Knives.

PC market is mostly enthusiasts now, not Joe Lunchbucket and family.

Forget the cheapo plastic faux instruments, and go for the tablet and mobile market with touch screens for input.

Personally I think these types of games were simply a novelty that hitched a ride on the initial console boom, kind of like pong was, and nobody plays it now. To me they are simply glorified Simon Says games.

Please put Turn Based or TB in every title about a turn based game.
Wasted my time reading the article after seeing at the end that it is turn based.

It reads like a WW2 Supreme Commander 1, and then the bring let down, its turn based.

It may be a fine TB game, but for some of us, it is not our cup of tea.

That other mega corp loser like MS, i.e. HP is blaming Win10 on even more depressed new computer sales.

If you don't get what it means to hand over the keys to your property to a Korporation, you deserve what you get.

My pool entry is we will start to hear reports of 10 de-installing non MS software and replacing it with timed trial MS applications.

Sounds like the devs can only see the trees now, and have lost sight of the forest.

Can you say "baroque?"

Why anyone would care what that monumental failure called Yahoo thinks is beyond me.

And Google has the nerve to pose on the moral high ground while they systematically ream music and movie copyright holders.

Looks like a mash up of current 3rd person RPGS and Asian MMO memes.

Question: is it like most Asian MMOs in that it is heavily pay to win and micro-transaction heavy?

So some guys decided 'lets make a game' and after 2 years the best they can offer is early access for $20 for a game that offers nothing new or particularly exciting. They need to get over themselves and get out of the kitchen if they can't stand the heat.

MS or Master Spy, given a very soft almost cloying review by this article, basically defines spying as collecting user and performance data to improve user experience. What a load.

The worst part is if you turn it off or set it to basic, you get no updates, patches, etc.

I think System Shock 1 was far superior to SS2. SS2 just seemed to go downhill from the start. The farther into the game the more monotonous and dreary it got, with the protagonists morphing from detailed models to shapeless globs and sparkles. I hope they produce something with the depth and detail of SS1 and not the belabored SS2.
