PS4 Neo: Everything we know
What's different in Sony's mid-generation 4K upgrade.
Skyrim remastered: Everything we know
From visual upgrades to console mods.
Loading... hold tight!
Disconnected on = working flawlessly.
Wow angry rant I must say. I bought the game yesterday and it disconnected once, while I was in the menus between missions. It has worked flawlessly otherwise.
I don't care about always online because it almost never actually bothers me. But I can understand it's not great if you're not in a city with a variable internet connexion.
Funny, you don't even talk about how the game is interesting or not. Nope, technical issues that will be fixed with some time. Like it was the most important thing. But I kinda agree, a missing sniper icon in the menu makes the game unplayable.
Not sure why them quotes not working.
Hmm.. because making false statements to make a position look stronger is rather common by people who are trying to argue there's a sexism problem in the gaming community?
You think the Twitter person I am responding to mostly, and that one person here, 'accidentally' said they were strippers, "This is how the games industry excludes women: By pretending we don't exist" That's overreaching just a touch, no?
There is a LONG history of this, look at how they constantly totally absurdly call killing women in games 'sexual violence', purely to get a rise out of people. Sexual violence is rape, not killing a sex worker in GTA 5. Funny how they bring up 'violence against women in games', or indeed violence against women in general. Why are we so completely focused on violence against women; so I suppose violence against men, violence against people in general, isn't a more sensible way to approach these topics?
"we need to listen to the women in it" this is very much part of the issue. WOMEN DO NOT HAVE COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS*, stop constantly falling into the trap of implying they do. You take the words of a handful of women, who frankly almost certainly have an agenda anyway, and take that as the gold standard of what ALL women think.
"It's not just this one thing, it's all of the things these people have experienced throughout their lives" How often is this just said, and completely taken on face value? I don't care WHO says this, you can't justify preferential treatment by just saying "Well, I've had issues in my life. Now fuck off." No, that's not good enough.
Apparently I have more respect for the integrity and strength of women-- because I know that like any humans the vast majority have a sense of proportionality. To be 'creeped' out by something does not normally result in a person running home and yelling how offensive it is, or how it's unwelcoming to their sex as a whole.
"You don't know what it's like to be a woman" I'm sure is rattling around in people's heads. Well, I also don't know what it's like to be any other male as well. Every woman doesn't know what it's like to be any other woman.
Can we stop treating women as some group that can be easily categorised in how they react to everything?
Don't you mean "Here's a selection of idiots overreacting to a crude choice at a Microsoft event."
"deeply offensive" Is it?
How is having women dancing offensive?
"This is how the games industry excludes women: By pretending we don't exist and having dev parties with strippers."
Pretending they don't exist? Strippers? Just because you shout ridiculous things and cloak them in some social crusade, it doesn't change the fact that the things you say are factually incorrect.
Don't you think somehow this is slightly, just slightly, blown out of proportion? Is every single official gaming function featuring dancing girls?
I would go as far as to say I don't really agree with the choice of having sexy schoolgirls (NOT STRIPPERS), purely on the ground that it is not too far from being seedy, and just crude. You can't however try and argue it's some 'attack on women' as in offensive and deliberately exclusive of them. That would be absurd.
👎🏼Microsoft sponsors a Women in Games lunch and awards, but then has scantily clad women dancers at their GDC party. NVIDIA does similar. 👎🏼
Extremely disappointed @Microsoft and @Xbox hired women wearing these outfits to perform at @gdc. PLEASE RT. pic.twitter.com/JYFTTGdzQk
ehhhhh I feel so icky about this because I was at Microsoft’s Women in Games Luncheon and now feel deceived https://twitter.com/Gaohmee/status/710761100896133124 …

Here's hoping the fully-featured port...
I ask why?
Bruno: Bottom Bitch Joke, Disrespectful towards players…
For the record the Bottom Bitch joke was about Waga/Sing, personal friends of mine who have both contacted me for support. So for me it wasn’t out of place.
But here is the kicker - exclusives of type (2) are good for the company that makes them. It does not follow that they are good for the people who own the systems made by that company.
There is no gain whatsoever to me personally because Uncharted is not playable by people who own systems other than the PS3/4. My play experience is not enhanced, my expenditure not justified by it. The ONLY good thing about such a situation is for the company, in this case SONY.
Given this, I just find it crazy that people get so up in arms about others having access to games. As end-users it is in our interest to have games be as accessible as possible.
