If they insist on crow-barring Lara into a gun-fetish 3rd-person shooter with headshots and finishing moves again then I'm not that bothered about missing out frankly.

I'm playing the Tomb Raider reboot at the moment and it did occur to me that out of the hundreds of people I have shot, stabbed, blown-up, impaled, burned alive etc, they were exclusively men. Is that what you mean?

Do they really think making F2P games that look like Crysis is going to be a lucrative line of business? Don't most F2P games have approximately PS2 level (i.e. inexpensive) visual fidelity?

So it's still got that moronic pre-rendered cut scene of you blithely wondering straight into the middle of the room. I hate in-game pre-renders at the best of times (the Mortal Kombat PC ones are like something from a 90's CDROM), but this was really obnoxious.

Having 'harmonised' video game ratings across Europe is about as good an idea as the Euro. Imagine if we did that with movie ratings? Parents pissing and moaning because their kids can't see 'too violent' superhero movies but they are allowed to see sex and nudity.

I haven't bought this game but I do often buy a game in a Steam sale and only play it many months after purchase. The idea that I could buy a game only to find it doesn't work because the publisher can't be bothered with it any more means that I won't even be spending that odd fiver on any EA game.

@cloudskipa What's good for gamers is good for 'the industry'. IO are either not making games that are good enough for the money (spent and charged) or they're getting screwed by their publisher. Either way, raising prices isn't going to fix anything, in fact I think higher prices would guarantee that fewer people would risk buying anything less than the AAA+ blockbusters.

Journalism does not need to be "balanced", it needs to be well argued and based on facts. If one person is arguing that dog shit is delicious and another that it is repulsive, you don't come to the conclusion that eating a little bit of dog shit in moderation is fine.

I think you can find more examples of Microsoft supporting their products than not, XP is still supported until next April when it'll be 14 years old. When I think of planned obsolescence it's not Microsoft that springs to mind. Of course there is zero chance than any online game requiring publisher support will be still working in 25 years time, but that's not what planned obsolescence is.

@Shikasama The official forums are a joke. I vividly remember a few years ago a load of people were banned for complaining about persistent bugs and just that after Miles came out and said 'great news everyone, we've finally implemented bug tracking!' after years and years, which basically admits they were right.
