Maybe if singleplayer games were made more interesting, stood out, or did unique and better things then I feel it could easily draw in that generation player base and the trend would shift away

Currently getting a kick out of Kingdom Come Deliverance. This game kicks ass, like Witcher 3 kicked ass before it. Also been playing Conan Exiles not bad. Another game with gameplay adapted from Ark, had played Dark and Light in the past. I know survival games don't repreesent all multiplayer games but it's a big trend right now, after the trend of mmorpg has dried down. Of course the fad of the moment is Battle Royale games.... Well, I can't really say I associate originality and uniqueness with multiplayer games so I am not sure why single players would need to be more unique or original, quite the opposite I think multiplayer games are only good at following fads to make the next cash cow whereas single player games stand as games that do their own thing. And they usually end being fairly successful but it takes a labour of love to make them. I will take an eastern europe role playing game anytime over another Ark clone...

Take up advantageous positions and don't forget: the police are supposed to arrest suspects, not kill them.

Ahh, so this is a fantasy game.

Partly, apparently you still have to deal with alcoholism in the ranks of the police. Racism will be introduced as a DLC

I'm surprised to read words like "blatant" in these claims. Also, "promised"? Isn't a promise based on honor and nothing else? I've never held any business agreement document mentioning that silly word.

I expect these promises to be part of a legal-binding contract. Do you think Crytek is a team of teenagers? They are not as crooked as Chris Roberts but I am sure they come close. they know business

Please correct me where I am wrong.

Started at "smart enough".

This said, since big US companies are not paying their taxes and some rich folks manage to pay less taxes than poor folks thanks to their tax councellors;, yet those companies can count on governments to educate their employees, they ship their goods on government-maintained roads but they won't wanna pay their share, these guys are the real sponges of the system.

What fools.

Whether it's Witcher Star Wars, Mass Effect Star Wars, Dead Space Star Wars... we don't give a fuck. People just want a AAA single-player Star Wars (C)RPG. Come the fuck on.

that license is pretty much open to any genre. Electronic arts has been doing a lame job at fructifying this license. I am surprised there is not more reaction from Lucisney. I mean they would make so much more money with a Destiny-like. The guys in charge clearly have no clue.

So no one wants a linear single-player game anymore? Does anyone have numbers on how well the Doom and Wolfenstein remakes did? Because they were classical linear single-player shooters!

Might wanna check the definition of classical. Most of the original 3D shooters weren't remotely linear, you can think CoD and consoler shooters for linearity becoming the standard.

My thoughts exactly. those COD are pretty much more linear than the old games. I guess that means Visceral was doing a dark forces like game. Not too bad compared to the Battlefront crap. For sure one can't get linear with only one level :p

I think that means Marvel is pursuing a new MMO game project. I hope everyone will remember that episode and that the champions MMO was meant to be a super hero MMO before they withdrew from the project before investing time and money into a project Marvel can terminate any time.

Amazon wants to do a lot of shit with drones without considering the laws of physics.

What law of physics prevents them from giving people a little charge to get them to the next charging station? Is it the same law of physics that prevents you from jump starting another persons car with your battery?

Probably the same law of physics that makes my battery heavy as shit?

There is one major problem with everyone bitching about Creation Club. It in no way prevents you from using other mods. If you don't like it, don't click on it in the menu. I currently have 98 mods loaded via Nexus Mod Manager. None of them are broken. Most are still being actively supported by their creators. Creation Club has had ZERO impact on my ability to play and enjoy a heavily modded Fallout 4.

Yup that is my point. The market will speak. If someone makes something worth money to people, it will probably need to be at very high quality level as they are competing against free content. If someone were to put in that kind of time, I'm cool if they can make a few bucks.

Ahh blind faith in the market. In anticipation of Fallout 4, I restarted a fallout New Vegas game and what a mistake. Fallout 4 felt so dull after playing New Vegas, in spite of all the latest graphics, fancy features and bright colors. If the market could speak we wouldn't be buying Fallout 4.

Ah you're not a star wars fan, that might explain why you don't think tfa sucked. It's probably one of the worst movies I have ever seen.
