Common sense and facts are "far right views" that make you deserving of being killed, but if you parrot any leftist garbage marxist propaganda, it's ok

no surprise really, a good portion of liberals have fully embraced fascism and believe that anyone who thinks differently is a threat that should be eliminated. The fact that they can't win arguments and instead resort to censorship, claims of racism, and violence, proves that.

I wish that they would actually put some effort toward improving the core mechanics. its been a long time and they still don't have merge lanes, mods try to fix it, but its still buggy from what I recall with Traffic+ and editing the lanes manually, at least the last time I played.

what game is this article about? /s

in regard to its content, I find it amusing how people still haven't figured out that money is all you need to incentivise people to do just about anything, even make stupid videos on youtube.

Oops, I didn't really clearly state what I was asking for: Why would those articles make you leave? If it's not affecting the other content and can be pretty easily ignored, it seems like an extreme reaction.

well, I came to this site for the sole purpose to find new games that maybe interesting, its right in the title, "PC games news and reviews".


if the amount of SEO filler content outweighs what I'm here for, the site no longer fulfills its purpose in my bookmarks, pretty simple.

well, technically it is biased, because if Trump didn't win, this article wouldn't exist. however that wasn't the point I was going for at all.


the point I was trying to make was about the fact that more and more articles are downright click-bait and riddled with SEO keyword cancer, speaking of cancer, those year old posts showing that they were posted a few hours ago because somebody added a paragraph to it, all without putting any highlight/indication of said additions.


fair point about the esports / moba gets a patch posts, as somebody who does play some of those games this is the last place I'd consider checking for patchnotes because there aren't even any categories, everything is just thrown together into one pile. which is also one of the reasons I absolutely loathe this type of post, because I have to scroll past it in the hopes of finding something I'd be interested in.


take that as you will, that's just my opinion of it.

I hope this is just a one-off joke article, because if this is the direction this site is headed, with political news about shit from literally a decade ago, I'm done. if I wanted that, I'd stick to RPS.Reply

Are you new to the site?


"perhaps its founder decided Goldman Sachs was a little on-the-nose." I chuckled.


At any rate, Bannon was not "news worthy" in 2007. He is now. And this is gaming news, directly related to the business of games. Although, as the Mother Jones article is five months old, it is still a bit dated, I'll grant you that.

Titanfall 2 and Dishonoured both bad release window candidates. IMO if they released in spring their sales would of doubled.

MW is the same old shit and stale.

Dishonoured I will buy when its below £20.

Watchdogs 2 looks boring.

The game companies also need to listen to what the gamers want rather than pumping out shite!

Battallion 1944 is what we want!!!!!

yeah that's pretty much how I feel too. once you've played a BF or CoD game you've essentially played them all, they honestly don't even attempt to innovate anymore, the gameplay is the same as it was 10 years ago, only with improved graphics.


and strictly speaking about Triple-A titles, the ones that I did get the chance to play this year were plagued with horrible game-breaking bugs and poor performance until at least a couple of months after release, and they wonder why their sales are lower than expected.

Eve Online is going free-to-play in November 2016Eve Online is going free-to-play in November 2016

I'm pretty sure this will kill EVE as it will piss off the remaining playerbase, while at the same time still struggling with its biggest problem of player retention that CCP is seemingly incapable of solving. I'd like to believe otherwise, really, but facts are facts, and the "universe" in EVE has become nothing more than a NAP / blob snoozefest. player numbers have stagnated and declined since I quit and sold my account off in 2009, you can see so yourself at eve-offline.net

I played on and off for 5 or so years (with an active sub training skills), doing literally everything in the game, and the most enjoyment I found was in small roaming nano gangs before the repeated speed nerfs, I suspect that new players will try the game, be overwhelmed and simply quit once they realize that training a specific skill to level5 can and will literally take them 30+days or longer depending on that "slower rate of training" they mention, which goes back to the player retention issues I mentioned earlier.

and even then, if you reach the sweet spot of 20-30m skillpoints, and can comfortably fly most things you enjoy at an acceptable level, you simply lose interest in the game because the fun you first experienced is no longer there, the heart racing sensation of tackling your first player ship and blowing it up, and getting hatemail from the guy you killed simply fades away and then all you're left with is repetition. or worse, your favorite ship gets nerfed to the ground and you wasted a couple of months training for it, with CCP telling you to hold your hands on your ass.

I could go on about EVE for ages as I have some amazing memories from it, that some new games can only wish to scratch the surface of, but they are just that. memories.Reply

How would opening the game up to the entire population of the gaming community kill a game? lol Would you like a tinfoil hat?

I think APRM was a lot better than SS2.


agreed on the fixed camera bit. though I honestly don't think I'd ever go back to Sudden Strike or Company of Heroes after having spent a bit of time in Men of War, while their engine is a bit dated, the combat is still miles better than anything else in the WW2 strategy genre. the Direct Control feature is just too damn awesome.


the devs would need to seriously add some comparable features to even get my interest. especially after that disaster that was SS3.

Direct Control feature sucks , make gameplay more focus on micro control .

I'm not fooling myself, but from a developer standpoint you must have shitty coding if things like speedhacks are still a thing, it implies character movement calculations are done clientside, instead of serverside, and that's terrible, because its not only speedhacks, its also noclipping, teleporting, adjustment of gravity and many other things.


why do you think games like Dota2 don't have anything like maphacks or any of the other things mentioned? magic? no. everything is done serverside, and for a company like Arenanet who has been doing MMO's for so long, you'd think by now they would have figured that out, but with a little bit of googling, guildwars has been succeptable to these kind of exploits since its beta over 3 years ago, so honestly its just outright incompetence on their part.

If you were any kind of developer I might give your point of view some consideration, but since you clearly aren't, I won't be doing that. It isn't as though they consciously decided to have mechanics clientside because it allowed such loopholes; no, the more realistic approach is that they opted for it due to technical reasons, knowing full well the security issues. I doubt it has much to do with incompetence.
