Waiting for Prez to post that he hopes this dies a horrible death as it looks like another GaaS. They don't say they are free to play but that tag is on Steam. I wish games were clear about their monetization plans before release but then how else would they bait and switch?

I am sick beyond comprehension of Elon Musk. I also think that he is a pretty gross person. But I also emphatically believe that representing a situation truthfully matters much more when you don't like a person.
Excellent point, this helps to make sure your judgement isn't clouded by bias as much. This along with your other post advice about viewing situations from another perspective (I usually debate against myself) are good practices.

As for Musk as a person, I'm rather certain if he entertained participating in therapy that he would be clinically diagnosed with a few manias, including being a sociopath. I would say psychopath which is more typical for CEOs but he does get rather emotional (mostly angry) at times.

I read through some of the official documents, what a rabbit hole that is. The issue Elon is taking is that big companies are driving (they literally have a group called the, "steering comity") a brand, "protection" organization collaboratively in an effort to protect their brands. If you don't play their game, they kick you out of their club which is quite bad apparently. That is who Musk is trying to sue but really he still should be focusing on not letting crap be spouted on Twitter. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure as they say.

Another issue as to why he probably even thought to do this is that this Rob Rakowitz guy who co-founded this group seems to be a compulsive liar based upon his judiciary comity testimony contradicting the emails he's written that are part of the evidence. He even brags about hurting Twitter's revenue decline then testifies that he had nothing to do with it. However the judiciary comity report goes to the extreme conclusion that because conservative businesses are the common culprits of the organizations, "boycotting" that they are being targeted for being conservative, not because they are lying a lot.

Pre-order to beta test a new IP that has minimal hype? I think this game will be DoA given the current amount of competition out there.

Time will tell on OW but Blizzard basically buffed all the tanks because fewer and fewer people were playing tank. The devs say they'll have a statement on 6v6 vs 5v5 soon but I have a feeling it will stay 5v5.
Oh the irony. When OW2 first came out, the tank role had the longest queue times. If they don't make tanks the most popular role again, there's no way reverting back to having two in 6v6 is going to fly. And then if they do go back to 6v6 they will have to nerf them all again for balance.

It's the article writer saying 4GB is not a lot of resources. Tech journalism at its finest I see.

Titanic level sunken cost at that. Did you see the article in May about them losing $200 million on this game? That was actually what Warner Bros. wrote off so could have been more and definitely more than the $185 million budget that the 2021 movie had.

I haven't tried it at all or looked it up much. After the dust settled, is there a game to be had when it hits bargain bin? Is it really that bad?
There's a game there to be had from what I've seen but not the end all, be all it was promising. I personally nope out of anything super hero related in general so I have no interest personally. People who like the theme might enjoy playing it once but not the grind it apparently can be thanks to RNG.

The biggest issue is that it went through a few major reworks in design during development. They ended up with a gun play focused game (a very pedestrian idea for a super hero game) that doesn't really make sense for most the characters.

The game has already suffered from causality cancellation before launch like so many other games have. I find it so strange that publishers will keep trying to milk turds while canceling promising projects that are 80%+ finished. It's like the publishers all think they have diamond hands.

Has anyone else noticed that Steam's "Similar to games you've played..." algorithm is totally broken lately? For this game it's telling me that it's similar to Raft and Satisfactory. They have to be kidding.

I think its broken too. It was recommending me a hunting game yesterday because I like space simulations.
Hilarious. I know that the tags showing for Steam games are different depending upon the account looking at it. Ask a friend to look at the same game as you on Steam and they will likely have different tags. You can also modify the tags for games which is basically teaching their algorithm what you think.

I almost believe when he said he was done with being in the lime light, that this became his planned way to do it. Not the action itself, but him admitting to it knowing that he'd get canceled out of existence. Nah, I'm probably giving him too much credit for this, carry on with his collapse.

Did we just witness a bromance throuple in the making? How romantic.

Back on topic, I think the games industry gets such a (deserved) bad rap because the revenue it pulls in is insane compared to the high skilled labor/management it requires but currently pays such low cost for. I think/hope that it will regulate a bit on its own over time as currently the profession is so new that world + dog thinks they are qualified but aren't. By qualified I don't mean just handling high pressure, though that's part of it, but that so many think they can make a good game but actually cannot. Companies will figure out that hiring quality people = profits and if they don't they will go out of business. Not soon as there is so much money floating around the industry and experienced bad actors are still not properly recognized as damaging but eventually.

I played the betas for this game and it was a lot of fun. The player count is super low because the vast majority of players are on console and/or game pass. It did get a bit repetitive but this was mostly because of being beta and they did add a good amount of content in the past year. There are 2 things that killed this game from the start:

1) PvE vs PvPvE - The game has both modes thrown in together at random and you couldn't pick what type of mission you would play. They needed to make it one or the other and not both.
2) Pricing - You either played the game via game pass or shelled out a whopping $60 PLUS seasonal battle passes. I feel this was the main reason the game didn't last and I'm honestly surprised it lasted this long.

You misspelled, "Fuck off"

I think I will like this game but it's hard to even think about paying full AAA price for a game these days. Unfortunately it'll be a while until this gets a decent enough discount.
