Actually that was part of my point games like TF2 have pretty much saturated that market, the only people I see leaving TF2 for this new game are the 1% with the best rigs that can take advantage of all the new eye-candy. Also I don't expect TF2 to retaliate with newer more flashy version.

Every once and a while our system of government still does something sensible and not soley designed to enrich the 1%.

Hats off the the librarian of congress for growing a pair.

Any one who has played any multiplayer open world type game knows that within the first month 95% of the reachable locations will have been found and named Beavis and Butthead style.

The casual player will have little to nothing to discover as the hammerheads are always at the forefront in their drive to append silly names.

Anyone who has played any game that uses procedurally generated content knows it is simply a matter of the number of permutations you can get with X colors, X textures, X models, X weather etc. where X tends to be 16 or less so one very quickly has seen every variable, and the following mishmashes are no surprise.

I just dont see a game here other than trying to keep up with the hammerheads.

Did not the day of FPS come and go quite some years ago?

It boggles my mind that Blizz is pouring dev resources into this after canceling Titan, virtually saying MMOs have no future.

The existing FPS market is over-saturated as it is.

Overwatch looks a lot like Planetside 2 to me, i.e. for whales with only the best rigs money can buy, which is a pretty small market.
I don't see how they can make a profit unless they stoop to selling ships/weapons like Chris Roberts.

What makes it even more odd is how much money they are raking in with Hearthstone and their new MOBA as to why they are even bothering with FPS.

Very trippy. I don't think it would go over too well in the Bible Belt however. Kind of a social gauge on how repressed your local community is if this does or does not come to yours.

24. Re: PAYDAY 2 Microtransactions Follow-up Oct 27, 2015, 07:04 Bub
 

Payday devs follow up is your basic P2W rationalization, i.e. It's not pay to win because there is the possibility to get the same items as drops. Yes the items do drop but usually at insanely low drop rates that mean it could take you months of grinding and getting wiped by P2W players until you eventually get lucky.

Another game goes Whaler.

It is doing poorly because everyone all ready knows the punchline/story arc after several TV and prior movies that showed the good and the dark side of this celebrity. Apple fanboys in particular don't want to be reminded of Steve's toolishness.

This is what happens when you grant local monopolies, once ensconced, there is no reason to maintain/improve service, and every reason to bilk the customer as much as you can get away with.

It is ironic that today's tea party is oblivious to what the original tea party was about, too much corporate power.

The absolute best Phillip K Dick story, however I don't see it as a series. The novel had a the main character on an internal journey with a clear story arc.

As a TV series, that would not work, and they are most likely just lifting the background details for thematic effect while the episodes will be your usual solve pull a caper in 45 minutes type gruel.

I am interested but cynical on this one, even if Riddley Scott is involved.

If your not running addblock, and something like ghostery, your already leaking so much data that your complete profile with history is easily packaged by various lucrative companies that do this.

There is no such thing as anonymized data. There is always a way to correlate and cross tabulate until they have a complete picture of you.

So the deal with MS Win10 is the "free" one snoops everthing and phones it home at your expense (remember you ISP bandwidth cap?)

If you want to turn off the snooping, you will have to BUY the Enterprise version.

Very cynical of MS knowing so many sheeple will go for the free version and give up their privacy.

News Comments > Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns Launches
38. Re: Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns Launches Oct 24, 2015, 06:34 Bub
 
I played GW2 from Beta to about 2 years out, then I switched to WOW and never looked back.

After 2 years and many updates, it was clear Arena Nets idea of MMO content and mine did not match, endless required jumping puzzles and sections. Frequent cheesy carnival mini games that were required to get better gear or items after a grind. The community was very elitist and running dungeons or "fractals" was always an exercise in "your not the right class or build".

The only thing I thought that GW2 did well was World VS Word pvp, which they seemed to always treat with benign neglect. Every month there were new jumping puzzles and mini games, but tweaks and improvement to WVW were few and far between. I seen nothing in the new release that looks like they have changed their proclivities, so no way am I sending them any cash for this expansion.

After 4 years combined GW2 and WOW, I only run dungeons to level in WOW. The LFR system just works. And the dungeons are fun and challenging, especially when you get dropped into one where your at the minimum level to enter.

News Comments > Falcon Collection on GOG.com
12. Re: Falcon Collection on GOG.com Oct 24, 2015, 06:16 Bub
 
I played most of the combat flight sims back in the day, and the Falcon series had the best manuals as far as teaching flight combat were concerned. One version also had a flight recorder that would reproduce you path, speed, turning cone ect. The flight was real not arcade style, so you really had to understand momentum, altitude, and how to burn off speed when you needed to.

After I knew Falcon it was easy to ACE any combat flight sim.

If you have never played Falcon but want to be a better combat flight sim player, you should not pass up this deal. As someone said earlyer it is worth it just for the manual sections on air combat.

George Lucas has been fat and sated for ages now, nothing excites him and everything seems to bore him, much like his last few movies.

The new Star Wars movie looks like it was made by someone who can still get it up for SciFi.

GLs comments are just blather by a pompus fool.

The board rooms at these Korporatized behemoths love MOBAs mainly because they don't have to keep on board a ton of writers, new content and instance designers and artists. PVP is cheap to develop and maintain as the players provide all the challenge.

The fact they nixed Titan, Wow's follow up says it all. WOW is pretty much in a circling until the subs dry up pattern with very few resources going into further development.
