My son, brother, nephew, and I play L4D a lot. We'd love to play this, just not for $28 per person.
You will be very disappointed if you're looking for another L4D. It's very different - a lot more tactical. The rythme is at the opposite: a typical game last between 45min and 90min, and if you die you have to restart from the beginning.

> Over the course of approximately an hour, Epic Games sent more data than 514KB of data to some server(s) somewhere

Yes surely 514 KILOBYTES of data over the course of an hour is overheating your system. Are these people stupid or something? This is their 'verification'?
514KB. It's approximatively the size of the webpage you're currently reading.

Another interesting discovery is that the “EpicWebHelper” sent some data to the following URL:
tracking-website-prod07-epic-961842049.us-east-1.elb.amazonaws.com
It's just the URL of an AWS ELB. ELB stands for "elastic load balancer". It's a process hosted on Amazon cloud, which distributes the traffic across multiple targets, such as servers, IP addresses, etc. There are millions of internet services using ELB all around the world. So, why is it "interesting?"

These "experts" from hothardware.com are just random tech journalists. Their tests are ridiculous: they don't even know how to use the Windows PerfMeter to monitor the CPU usage of the EGS processes.

This kind of news is a perfect example of Fear Uncertainty and Doubt. It's a shame Bluesnews copy/paste it like this.
Fear, uncertainty, and doubt (often shortened to FUD) is a propaganda tactic used in sales, marketing, public relations, politics, polling and cults. FUD is generally a strategy to influence perception by disseminating negative and dubious or false information and a manifestation of the appeal to fear.

While the phrase dates to at least the early 20th century, the present common usage of disinformation related to software, hardware and technology industries generally appeared in the 1970s to describe disinformation in the computer hardware industry, and has since been used more broadly.

It's not the number of players. It's the number of people connected to steam.

If you buy from Steam or Epic, you don't care what they do with your Oculus account. Right?
Of course. If you use your Oculus as a PC VR device, you dont care about the "risk" to see you FB account deleted. That's why it doesn't make sense to pretend it's a better idea to buy another PC VR device because of FB.

If you're scared about FB, just don't buy games on the Oculus shop. Stick with PC VR games on Steam and EGS. You will have a great device for only $300.

I bought it for $8 on EGS months ago.

It's a gamepad shooter with a lot of Fedex quests. Not a great game, but it's OK. I finished it in 25h.

And don't even consider real 8k gaming with this setup - it is either massively upscaled or with less details than at the (maybe native?) 4k resolution.
It doesn't matter, the game has to run on an XB1 as well, so it's not going to look substantially better on the new console anyways.
GTA V looks better than Halo Infinite. (And it was available on XB360)
Halo Infinite is a crossplay/crossgen title between PC/XB1 and XBSX, GTAV isn't. Each of it's ports was tailored to its platform.
Nothing prevent them to tailor each versions of Halo: Infinite to each platform.
So, I see 2 options:
1) the new consoles are bad
2) the developers are lazy and/or incompetents
I don't think the new consoles are bad.

Sweeney is on the developers' side. Everything he does is for the content creators.

Maybe it looks anti consumer on the short term, because you can't buy your game on Steam, but on the long run, it will be beneficial for everyone, except Apple/Google/Steam.

Sweeney's ultimate goal is that :
- you can buy a product anywhere (Apple, Xbox, Steam)
- the vendor takes a small cut (<10%) - all the rest is for the content creator
- then you can use the product on all the platforms without any additional charge

Offering exclusivity on the EGS is a side effect of what is required to break the statu quo in order to reach this goal. It looks nasty for the consumers, but it's only temporary. Sweeney is already one of the richest men on earth - he's not doing this by greed.

I usually like games like Control, just did not like Control. After about 6 1/2 hours playing it, I deleted it off my drives with no intention of ever revisiting it.
Same for me, but I wanted to see the ending. It took me 9h to finish it. In my humble opinion, the gunfights are repetitive and not very interesting. The last missions were a real pain, with tons of ennemies, and if you fail you go back to the last checkpoint and have to replay the same boring fights.

Very bad experience.

Actually, it's very easy to report a cheater in game. You just have to press a key while you're observing your killer, then select the reason of the report.
