Are you referring to Kotick? He's been the CEO of Activision since 1991. His "weakened" company is now making annual revenues of over $8 billion. Kotick is responsible for a near 100% revenue increase over the last ten years. Going back all the way to 2005, we are talking about a 1000% increase (10 fold increase from $780 million to over $8 billion). Like it or not, but the company has been immensely successful under Kotick's long tenure.

Is he though? Is he really responsible for all of that? He himself, personally? Or did he just play his cards right to be in the right place at the right time? I mean none of those fantastically selling IPs and the developers who created them had anything to do with that success right? Nothing at all....

I'm looking forward to exactly two shooters that will be released this year. WH40K: Darktide and Stalker 2. And Stalker is coming at the end of the year, so I don't even count that really.

I just had a terrible thought. Bobby Kotick can fire anyone he wants for sexual misconduct, without repercussions and probably without pay or severance, and then claim to his board that he cut costs AND saved the ActiBlizz from further disgrace.

Maybe I give him too much diabolical credit....

Someone told me that God of War is sort of like WH40K: Space Marine, in a fantasy setting. Well, that's quite high praise. Maybe I'll jump in on the game, once I finish my Divinity Original Sin 2 playthrough.

Star Citizen is a pretty epic technological experience. I have a very high end machine and it would be a disservice to not play around with star citizen on it. It’s a long term thing, like DCS and il2.

It's nothing like DCS and IL2. As someone who plays both regularly and has tried the alpha just for kicks, comparing it to those two great games\simulations is doing them a huge disservice.

So....any honest reviews of this game? Like, seriously this game is like the posterchild of the Sony Playstations. It's supposed to be the be all end all game, all i see is a beat em up game.

Lol I don't get it either! I keep watching gameplay vids while heavily biased toward wanting to like what I see but I don't somehow. To me I can hardly explain why not though. It's like the game has a reverse X-factor and I just won't like it even though it checks all my boxes.

Gameplay is solid, boss fights are great in typical God of War fashion. That said, the story (and immersion) is what the game is about and what makes it great. If story isn't your thing and you just want another FPS, this ain't your thing(and you would probably want to stay away from first party PlayStation games in general)

Yeah I dig stories. Bit if I want a great story I can read a book or watch a good movie. What is it about the gameplay that makes this a great game? Is there strategy involved in how you approach fights? Is it like Dark Souls (because I hate that shit, if you dont do move x->y>z>a>x>y in EXACTLY in that order you DIE) or more like the Witcher, is there character progression? Is it just press X to win?

Did ANY of you play the original Stalker? It was a buggy unfinished mess at launch. This delay is positive news, no matter how much you want your grubby little hands to play in a beta of the game. Especially considering it's a single player game, and most people will only play through once. First impressions count.

There are only two correct responses to this news coming out of CIG: Righteous indignation and anger, or bemused bewilderment. The fact that these fuckers have done fuck-all in all this time with SQ42, tells me all I need to know about the people who work there and the people in charge. They should be charged with fraud, and most of them should be sent to jail.

Can you pick a Yugo as the police car.
Yes, but you can upgrade it to have a 5.0l V-8 twin turbo putting out 455 BHP.

Why are you putting twin turbos on a 5L V8 for only 455HP? You can get that much normally aspirated.

Twin turbos are for closer to 1200-1500 HP. Hell, you can get that with a good Roots style supercharger with a lot less complexity and plumbing.

As someone who has actually seen and driven a Yugo a few times in my life, there is no way you can fit any of that in that car. Also not sure why this is a joke, the autobahn or the German police had nothing to do with Yugos. I don't think the Yugo was ever even sold in Germany or Austria.

Video gamers: "Say no to crunch! Devs work too hard! Damn execs!"
Also Video gamers: "Where's our new stuff? Work harder, dammit!"

Most people are reasonable, but that wouldn't be as dramatic as blaming all gamers for instant gratification outrage. Or actually admitting that Battlefield2042 is shit.

Good thing the original lead designer quit right after the game was released. Lol. Joke is on us.

Too bad it wasn't an Ultima Pagan remake.

Pagan Ultima VIII was a secret obsession of mine. I know it's considered one of the worst Ultima games, but for some reason I loved it. Would love a remaster or remake of that game.

The price inflation on these things is getting ridiculous. The thing is, they can get away with it. People will still buy them up. Miners are a given, which creates demand with gamers and drives the prices up even further.

I think some good old fashioned state intervention is necessary, not only in consumer graphics card chip prices, but in all chip prices. It's a radical idea, but the only one that will stop the rampant inflation and greed of the chip manufacturing corporations taking advantage of the consumers.
