He's a millionaire for sure, he was just working there because he enjoyed it and/or because he'd be bored otherwise. Must have changed his mind about one of those.

Maybe they changed the snack foods. I hear they went healthy. That'd drive me away too.

Even if VR sputters and dies like 3D televisions, I'll still be able to play the handful of games out right now for as long as my headset works, and honestly I'm fine with that. I'd treat it like a Sega Dreamcast, something that was ahead of it's time, and will be fun to come back to for decades to come.

Until a cable breaks and they won't replace it.

Maybe Gabe is really just a big Jack Tramiel fan.

Maybe he's a Cave Johnson fan and spends his money on moon dust and testing. We've seen where that leads.

Funny that they test it on Blizzard's game(Overwatch) instead of their own game.

I found that interesting. Blizzard mentioned in one of their videos that they were working on this kind of stuff and were making the data available. I wonder if that's why. It was already available and easy to work with, whereas CS:GO isn't yet.

Knock off 20 years of my life and I'd have loved to get in to that kind of stuff. I'm too old now.

Tell me again about how one of the richest corporations in the industry is doing it wrong.

They just need some competition. Maybe that Amazon thing. Or GOG.

Given that they reached 70 million in sales back in November of last year, that would mean GTA V, now a four year old title, has sold 5 million copies in the past 4 months alone.

And still no single-player DLC or expansions. Hopefully GTA VI is coming.

or make backups of all the sites if he could get access, and then give that up to the authorities after the fact.

Backing up a CP site sounds like a bad idea if you're not the FBI.

I like how he can wall-ride the terrain for some reason.

Does it on OW too. Although I've only seen it on the map with the bottomless pit in the center of the capture point. Rides around the wall until he can get out. Think I'll try it on other walls next time I play.

Looks weird seeing him in HotS where the animations are not nearly so fluid.

Cheaters suck, but I hate fuckers on my team standing around doing nothing more than I hate cheaters. Or worse, blocking the doors with Mei just to be a dick. This game makes me rage, and yet I keep playing.

How is Heart of Thorns? Wasn't going to pay a full price but now that it is on sale, worth a buy?

I appear to be in the minority. HoT is a long grind, IMO. The skills are interesting, but they take a ton of time to unlock (at least the later ones). And although there are events always going on, it's been rare for me to find anyone doing them. And a lot of them are hard to do solo.

That said, I do enjoy gliding. And when HoT came out I played a ton because there were so many other people around. Plus the story stuff is fun. But it comes back to grinding. To progress in the story, you have to unlock certain Mastery Skills, which requires more grinding. At least the story grinding isn't as bad (it's first tier skills).

Initial reviews are mixed on Steam. I think I'll buy it tonight. Only $30, and I've been itching for a new game with nothing to buy.

What is wrong with how they've handled Deus Ex? Human Revolution and Mankind Divided had some story issues but other than that were excellent games.

I loved HR. Thought it was a great game. MD is just as good, IMO, as far as gameplay. But I don't care for the environments. After several hours of playing, everything looks the same. I feel like I'm not advancing. I keep trying to go back and finish the game, but I just don't have any interest. Also feels like more backtracking than in HR, but that could be my bad memory.

Not surprised to see news like this come at a time when the player count is decreasing.

How do you know player count is decreasing?

In my dreams, they use this engine and create a full-fledged single-player only game (maybe co-op). One that's a lot more fleshed out. I've been treating the game as single-player already, but the "campaign" isn't really long enough.

So, basically, he regrets ever suggesting there would be a third game

I read the AMA and that's not at all what he said. He sees all the design choices he made in HL2 and is overly critical of himself. He didn't have as much involvement in Portal 2, which is why he enjoyed it more.

"The issue with Half-Life for me is that I was involved in a much higher percentage of the decisions about the games, so it's hard for me to look at them as anything other than a series of things I regret," Newell wrote. "There's no information in my response about what we'll do in the future.

And Xen. He did say he regrets Xen.

In Morris’ interview with PC Gamer, he points out “Lots of people donate money and the assumption is that that money is going to treating [people in need] and it turns out that a portion of that money is going to lawyers writing letters to videogame companies who are apparently abusing use of the red cross symbol,’ Morris says. ‘How much money do they spend every year enforcing their abuse of the red cross emblem…?'”

Lots of charities out there to donate to. Red Cross appears to have too much money and free time.

I have to keep looking up who these new characters are. You'd think they would pick from their more well-known characters. They certainly have a lot to pick from.

Not a western, but I've heard Super Hot VR is awesome.

I think I've sweat the most in Superhot. Which isn't very fun with a display over your face. The game was fun though. Makes me feel like Jackie Chan. Just wish it were longer or allowed player-made content.
