1000 IQ power move: Valve promotes a fake game with fake trailers and fake reviews.

Day of the release approaches.

People buy and fire it up.

Starting screen says “Half Life 3”.

Thousands die from a stroke.

So we are back at normal 😎

The same company that insisted for years that 30 FPS is better than 60 FPS insists on something stupid yet again.

Yeah I know, the show came out and everyone is hyped because of that. But maybe put those resources into fixing shit in Starfield?

Microsoft is really rimjobbing that kafkaesque.

This has nothing to do with the shitstorm (it mostly hit Arrowhead anyway), and I think the review bombing didn’t affect their decision making that much. What I think happened was, Sony saw the massive refunds. They got hit right into the wallet 😩

This makes me smile.

Point taken.

Hold on? Do I get this right?

By guides they mean actual guides for games? Like that stuff that I and literally any other person look up on YouTube and go for the shortest video available? Or, in more complex cases, go straight to the Wiki ignoring any other site that is just there to waste my time? Please tell me I am wrong.

“I’ve resigned from Kotaku and Jim Spanfeller is an herb.”

Someone give this woman a medal. Fantastic.

Edit: Forget what I said. They actually mean THAT by guides. It says it in the article, my brain just jumped a paragraph. Derp.

Oh boy! Let’s see how this will turn out for Kotaku!

Yeah, I get you. Maybe it’s more of a personal preference. As someone who, in most cases, is relatively indifferent to spoilers, I prefer other sources.

I still think Kotaku is fucking up right now, tho.

I was shocked a couple of months ago when YouTube suddenly decided to randomly throw one of their videos into my autoplay-feed. WTF? They still exist?!

But it get’s worse. It was about Geoff screaming “The haters said we will die so many times! And we made it every time! And we will make it this time, too!” Didn’t go well I guess.

This. That’s why I gave up on arguing with people a long time ago. There is a shimmer of hope in me that this industry still comes crashing down at some point. I would celebrate it. But by the looks of it, it won’t happen anytime soon.

The best I could do is not buying anything on release, early access or riddled with microtransactions, mostly indie games and maybe one AAA title a year, also avoid certain studios. Oh, and also don’t really care at all when these kind of news come up. I cared back then, I voted with my wallet and still do, but the other side won. Shit happens. There is nothing I can do other than get angry, but that’s not worth the hassle.

Good. I hope Witcher 4 will rock! Still not preordering anything. Especially not from CDPR after Cyberpunk.

A lot of us left because we weren’t satisfied with the dropping quality. Let’s see how you firing the QA will work out for you, chief.

I’m halfway through. But I also like Joseph Anderson and Noah Caldwell-Gervais. So I’m used to these kind of behemoths. It’s good.
