A bonus for the true backers and supporters: now get TWO games where you paid only for ONE! DOUBLING THE WORTH OF YOUR CONTRIBUTION! WOWZERS!

And it's getting even better: get not only two games, but one of them in episodic form so you will have even LONGER FUN!

Brought to you exclusively by CIG and Stan's Emporium in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and expect a feature limited beta in 2022! Dates may vary - final products won't be rushed and will be delivered soon after the beta!

The "haters" are people that will never play the game. Cutter can go sit on his fist.

You're the hater asshole. Like so many other dicks around here, always stirring up trouble and starting fights for fun. Fuck off, troll.

I can see the co-op story being decently fun, but they absolutely destroyed any promise this game's multiplayer might have held. The original announcement made it look like a single huge open world with many players wandering around in it, with the potential for tense PVP engagements. Basically DayZ without the zombies.

Instead, they have completely separated the PVE and PVP components of the game, and you will never see anyone outside of your group in the story world. You have to opt in to visiting the 'Dark Zone' which is like the Peewee's Playhouse of open world PVP.

There's no risk in it at all, you go into the area with what basically amounts to a checkpoint save of all of your progress and loot you've gathered up to that point. You don't lose your gear or items when you die, there's no permadeath, and you don't even lose "real" XP. DZ has its own XP bar and levels, its own currency, and the loot you find there is only in danger of being lost if you don't manage to run away to an exit or send it off at one of several extraction points. After that, it's safe forever, just like the rest of your stuff.

No risk means there's no excitement. You have to go to the Dark Zone if you want the best gear in the game, but all it takes is a lot of friends to back you up or a lot of luck to get in and out without being ganked. Just keep grinding it enough and eventually you max out your kit, which can never be taken from you.

In other words, they completely missed the point of what makes open world survival games compelling, or else they second-guessed themselves and decided to cater to all the carebears out there who can't withstand any real challenge or consequence.

The things you criticize (basically that it is not DayZ) are actually pros in my opinion. I never really tried DayZ after hearing, reading, and watching how DayZ was (is?) infested by people who work in groups to just shoot and loot other people. It didn't look like fun to me. Of course, this makes DayZ hardcore survival, but here we are looking at a game that is trying to appeal to the masses, not the tiny fraction of hardcore gamers. In the end, there is still DayZ for hardcore survivalists and games like this for people who like some survivalism but without the frustration that comes from being shot a few mintues after being spawned in the game.

I'd play The Division for the pve part only, by the way. I hope it's good. If the reviews are promising, I will buy it.

I'd assume they are releasing free weekends as a "Fuck You" to all the haters. Good for them, because honestly.. fuck you

If you don't like it, don't buy it and move on.

But the only Fuck You that would work would be releasing the complete game, or, as it is now, games. Or episodes and the MMO. Or whatever it will turn into during the next few years. Or the next decade. Or century.

When is it ever enough for the psychopaths of Wall St.?

There is no "enough". Human greed knows no limits. And our economy in the western and a lot of the eastern world are based on the principle of unlimited, neverending profit growth. Everybody with half a working brain knows how stupid this idea is, but we are so entangled in this system we have invented that we cannot find a way out. Of course, there are MANY ways out but those would include some kind of waiver, and the very moment this becomes clear everybody will go "no - then it is not the right solution" because greed always Trumps waiver (and reason).

Hey Blue, you have an advertisement that makes browsing your site on an iPhone impossible. About 3 seconds after hitting your front page, it pops up a dialogue and then immediately redirects to some shady looking page:

When I browse this site on my android, I get something similar, too, from time to time. I get some window popping up, too, or get automatically transferred to another ad infested site. It's sad but there is no trustworthy online ad partner. Not a single one. They all pull something like this off from time to time.

It's funny how unprepared yet willing people were to become an 'investor' in something they have essentially no control over and no patience for. These threads read like a rehab group for junkies.

I give zero sympathetic fucks for anyone who backs any crowdfunded project, but it's fun to watch you guys squirm and whine about "broken promises". There is a reason they don't rely on or believe "promises" in the real world and require everything in writing with deadlines or you lose your funding.

I will keep saying this... CIG should simply refund every kickstarter backer and just keep the other 97% of the money people gave them through their website with no obligations what-so-ever.

Then the impatient whiners can just shut the fuck up already.

The fun were the white knights. Seeing them working as spin doctors for free for CIG was the biggest fun, but it seems that the number and the strong belief of the white knights are both dwindling.

Blue, please don't get any crazy idea's with the Infinite Spherical Video Magic when they decide to do pictures/videos of your work environment.

Blade Runner squeal? Please keep George Lucas and JJ Abhrams away from it please (like 3 continents away).

A sequel to Blade Runner is so unnecessary. But if they really have to do it, at least they should have a better screenplay than The Force Awakens or Prometheus.

September 2015

Something like that happening in Windows 10 and it would make some people jump up and down while shouting "I KNEW IT! LOOK AT ME!"

By the way, that problem has supposedly been fixed. Like other problems get fixed, too, but of course not in Windows 10. Don't trust the updates, disable them! It makes Windows 10 spy on you like Android and iOS... Oops.

You know what? Whatever. Once DirectX12 games hit the market, people will open up like they did for the spyware on their mobile phones.

Owned by Facebook, low security, a true data magnet - I expect the Blue's News data security experts to have a field day with this even more than with Windows 10.

Then again - for most of those experts it seems to be alright to be spied on by their mobile phones.

Huh? She should sell a kidney and/or one eye's retina before asking for other people's money.

Or she could seek professional advice. Psychiatry could help her with her gambling addiction.
