    Game Obsessions You Don't Understand

    +1. I have friends whose sole game purchase every year is the new FIFA. Even as a staunch Liverpool FC fan, I can't for the life of me understand the appeal of buying the same damn game every year with little more than a roster update and a full progress wipe, especially if you're the sort of person who indulges in the card packs. Sensible World Of Soccer still gets fan updates to this very day. WinUAE runs on a housebrick. Save your £55 and go play that.
  2. So they've decided to give blitzchung his prize money and halved the ban in a longwinded, meandering leviathan of a blog post designed purely to bore readers to the point of skipping over the part buried in the middle where they deny any influence from the CCP at all. Pathetic. BlizzCon is gonna be very interesting this year. And you thought the Diablo Immortal announcement was bad.
  3. I concur. Thing is, boycotting Tencent is like trying to boycott Nestle at this point. Sure, we can send Blizzard a message, but then there's Epic, Ubisoft and whoever else whose pie they have a finger in. As far as I am concerned, all of those companies are now on notice. We've already seen Ubi try to nerf Siege in order to please their Chinese overlords and now this. And it's only going to get worse. So, when Blizzard inevitably pulls another JK Rowling with one of the Overwatch cast, remember what happened here. Truth is, they don't care about identity. They don't care about inclusion. They don't care about oppression. Then don't care about privilege, or free speech, or even hate speech, or anything else they might preach about on Twitter. When it comes to that sweet Chinese dollar, they'll take a shit on all of it, and indeed their fans, for the sake of their bottom line. Also, before anyone comes at me with, "What happened to 'keep politics out of games? HYPOCRITE EXPOSED! etc.'" this ain't it. This was a case of an individual seizing an opportunity to make a statement that just happened to be at an esports tourney. It's no different from Colin Kaepernick taking the knee. I just hope they don't get to blitzcheung like the NBA did with Daryl Morey. What I will say is that I actually find it heartening that Blizzard's fuck-up was so monumentally complete that people from all political stripes are coming together to put them on blast. I doubt it will be enough for us all to finally unite against the common enemy of authoritarianism, but just maybe there is hope for us all.

    Eternal release date...i bet u...

    id have their own engine. They have largely sidestepped the Bethesda curse, outside of Doom 16 having a few devconsole and SLi issues at launch.

    Eternal release date...i bet u...

    The remainder of my year is officially ruined. Not only is the one single game I gave any molecule of a shit about slipping to the standard-issue delayed game month, but the one game that could have filled the void is slipping with it. DE is now dangerously close to CP77 and I'm concerned that could potentially hurt it. As an entity, March needs to be cancelled.

    Doom: Annihilation update

    True, but some elements are literally shot-for-shot do-overs - for example, the bit where Ferro gets killed in Aliens is all but recreated here in its entirety. Wearing your influence on your sleeve is one thing, but try switching things up at least a little bit!

    Doom: Annihilation update

    I did. I got it when Perfect Dark did it 20-odd years ago, too. Given the hoo-hah over this movie's production, I was fully expecting it to be politically-correct garbage and it just isn't. The film makes absolutely no bones about what it's trying to ape. Forget the Doom fanservice - there are that many scenes that so completely and directly rip off Aliens that it could easily be turned into a potentially lethal drinking game.

    Doom: Annihilation update

    Syfy-level trash. Except that I like Syfy-level trash.

    Doom 64 coming to PC and modern consoles?

    Even if C&Ds do occur, likelihood is that we will have a legitimate wad to mod for anyway. I'm honestly not that concerned. Only reason I thought EX would disappear is because it is effectively going commercial. Then again, it's open source.

    Doom 64 coming to PC and modern consoles?

    Japan has stricter rules regarding violence in advertising. They did the same thing with the Doom 2016 port.

    EX, probably.

    Doom 64 coming to PC and modern consoles?

    Is it too early to start speculating about trophies?

    Doom 64 coming to PC and modern consoles?

    Aaaaaaand it's legit. Same day as Eternal. Grab your fan mods while you can, folks.

    Ion Fury, a new Build Engine game out now.

    The real product used to be called "Ulay" before they changed it to "Olay" in the 90s. I'll wait.
