Jesus…

to fit the theme, everything is indeed streaming

#353

Oh nice, I just read the guys 8chan thread. I wonder if THQ Nordic regret doing that AMA now?

#354

Jesus the world is a nightmare.

#355

Fuck this is horrible.

#356

New Zealand? What the fuck. That’s the last country I would expect something like this. Horrific.

#357

For playing the game as delivered to the players.

#358

I’m not super invested in this, so good, yeah.

#359
#360

oooof.

#361

It’s really about ethics in game distribution.

#362

#363

#364

But then we’d have only the Epic games store. Which looks at that thread

Know what? I’m fine with board games being 100% of my gaming budget instead of their current 95%.

#365

We will always have Uplay.

#366

I mean, ain’t one of re prevailing concerns that we won’t?

Hah/zing/heyo/etc.

#367

Is disgusting how violent people take over movements.

you have to be really clear against them, because racist are very stupid and otherwise will not understand it if you are subtle.

It’s interesting to be thinking these sort of meta-genre thoughts as I’m playing Apex Legends , and that’s because it knows that your attention will wane. Something newer and stronger and better focused onto the Skinner box ratbrains we all have will come along, and our eyes will slowly drift (along with our friends) to the next thing that appears. And I think Legends knows this, which is why it is built with your attention in mind.

The design of these levels and the way your accomplishments are echoed back to you are not just good design. It’s watching developers play a metagame, the battle royale of battle royales that determines who is the winner this week when it comes to player retention and monetization.

#369

such a nice phrase to explain why I never had any interest and will never have any interest in these games, battle royales and looter shooters and what not

#371

A nice profile on the development of Remedy’s Control. I thought Quantum Break was a complete misfire, but based on previews and gameplay footage, I’m hopefully this will be a major return to form.

Not sure where this goes but remember the idle game about paperclips?

Feature length movie?

Not long after Lantz made Bostrom’s ideas playable, a young filmmaker named Alberto Roldán followed a link to the game on Facebook and was entranced. He contacted Lantz about making Universal Paperclips into a feature-length film. Roldán is close to finishing a draft of the script, and he has already curried the interest of several producers.
