CRank: 5Score: 0

My vote goes to yes; there's a few I met in person, and some I didn't even know lived in the same area until later. Everyone I meet is a friend? No. But I have made some irreplaceable ones through gaming online.

Just because the majority bandwagon off someone elses opinion doesn't make any game good/bad. People are entitled to their own opinions; and if there's the one out of many who don't agree, doesn't make them any better/worse than the rest. There's a lot of games I find to be utter trash, while the Internet and fans swear it's the second coming, at 95+ score(s).

"The game resist attempts by third-party applications to insert code into the game client. This basically means that the capture function of programs like XSplit and OBS won’t work with the game at fullscreen." (From the article)

So in short, find a creative way to record game play? All this does is force companies to make recording software that doesn't insert code into the game(s), which is something that can be patched in the future. Hell if you really w...

There's some points I agree with the author regarding today, at the same time I still prefer gaming back then over today. Here's what I miss from gaming in the 90s and early 2000s:

Complete games
Simplistic controls
Easy to follow stories
Character development
Expansions added to the game, not cut and re-released for profit only
Art styles

Now here's what I do like about gaming...

I play games for the story, and fun factor; not because the bad guy(s) are of a specific gender/nationality.

It's more of satire than anything, and the fact there's so many people getting offended needs to go back to history class. I get so sick of people getting upset over something not real; and what's worse is the same people put so much effort into banning literature/games/art yet put 0% effort into actual, real world problems and solutions.

And I have the right to vote with my wallet by not buying anything. Outside legit, good content I'm not buying dlc or expansions just because the Internet hypes something, or because "everyone else has it." Doesn't matter if it's Nintendo, Sony, or Xbox; I don't condone extra sales just because someone came up with some sob story about "rising costs" in the industry.

DLC/Expansions should be to add to the experience, and as an option,...

I agree 100% with you; I don't like how so many people defend the price hike for various reasons. Regardless of reason, Sony (as well as every other company) needs to at least explain the price hike so customers can have an idea of what's going on, and understand the situation(s).

Just price hiking isn't acceptable; however something like "Due to increase server costs," or "we're working out deals with 3rd party to...

It's the same thing in fighting games;

"Oh X and Y won Evo with these characters. You have to play these to actually get anywhere." Followed by the countless copycats until next year.

What the majority don't see, it's the ones who think outside the box is the ones who win (or make top tier), not the ones who live on wiki and YouTube videos.

Not giving this story the "clicks" it needs with one per page.

It's only flamebait if you take it as such. This is proof even after E3, MS is still struggling to expand it's player base while Nintendo and Sony are growing. The handful of exclusives on the Xbox One are also available on PC, except for maybe a couple. There's no point in buying something you can get the same experience elsewhere; in some cases cheaper, and/or better quality. At this point the majority of fans realized MS is 90% fluff, hype, and empty promises; I'm not sa...

I like 8 for how close it is to resemble what High School is like, and how there's a "safe zone" if you don't like random battles when trying to save.

I have yet to hit $40K+ a year, and yet someone can just spend the $ like that for a "chance" to look like a character? I can think of better gaming reasons to spend $40K over an appearance.

This is another reason why I slowed down pre-ordering games after the start of this gen. Granted it was an error on Best Buy, and they are resolving it; the amount of people defending Best Buy proves there are some die hard fans who need proper education. The ONLY saving grace Destiny 2 has this time is it didn't do what the first game did - promote the beta first acting like you "had" to get the pre-order to only be told later everyone can join, followed by some BS story from...

From a business perspective, a lot of companies still run XP for various reasons; so why upgrade when XP does everything they need without the need of upgrading and spending/wasting money?

Another reason is certain 3rd world countries are still running XP/Vista because it's what their society can afford outside running Linux.

If the numbers are low on the playerbase running XP/Vista then yes it makes sense. If it's a high number and MS is demandi...

After reading the article I'm tempted to download the Nintendo app just to see how bad it really is. I do believe the author, at the same time I can provide feedback to Nintendo regarding why I use other services for my chatting needs outside their poor service. If Nintendo had "beta" after their app I can understand the frustrations and concerns; but since this is their "full service" this is unacceptable.

I agree with Chrono Trigger being my all time favorite; it's the RPG where I started playing the genre on a regular basis as I gotten older. The fact CT to this day is still held in high regard is proof the 90's had some games you can't make today with that kind of impact on the industry.

I haven't tried Persona 5 because of Evo (which I made quarterfinals), and the back catalog of games I still need to go through before starting something new.

I'm in dire need of a good beat em up on the PS4. I'll give this one a try; the worse that can happen is I don't like it.

Depends on the game, and the difficulty. Fallout 4 on Survival mode doesn't allow for it, but the other lower levels does.

The biggest reason why I like fast traveling - if real life calls, I can warp back, and save/quit. As far as the how often it should be used; is open to debate.

Depends. If it does what's called "input read" then yes I agree it should be reduced to learn the game first before jumping into the hardest difficulty for bragging rights and/or achievements/trophies. If it's difficult without the input read then no, keep it as-it and the player(s) will have to learn how to play.

Downside is there's a line between learning the game and just beating a match.
