I haven't played GTAV but I sympathize in principle. One of the things I loved best about RDR is that the protagonist was neither a complete dickbag nor a blank slate, but a decent guy in a bad situation. This made me actually care about the story, instead of just going crazy trying to see how many stars I can get before I die. If I want to just play Terms of En-Rampagement: The Game, I'll play Saint's Row which knows not to take itself seriously.

Good video showing off Valve's and Mr. Magic: the gathering upcoming Dota 2 card game.

Turns out there is no way to acquire cards in the game, you can only buy them. Like real M:tG. I wonder if this will hinder the popularity of this game.

I haven't played enough to say it's great (only had a couple hours to play last night) but it's a fine excuse if you want to get a PS4 (Pro). And there are several other excellent PS4 exclusives available with more coming.

I mean, I traded in my xbonex for the spidey ps4 pro. Not the only reason, but I've been thinking about switching it up for a while and the gameplay looks shallow but fun. I'm all about shallow but fun.

Wait, in the tech thread you said NOT pro.  WHY CHANGE UR PRO STANCE TRIPPY ??!
There are more games now that are "optimized" for the Pro (and more that are coming) and there's better support for gaming at 1080p* (what I run at) now on the Pro. Basically I broke down and got one in February for Monster Hunter: World** cause it provided multiple options on the Pro even at 1080p (you can choose between resolution, graphics quality or frame rate).

If you are on 1080p I would still say it's optional. With a 4K display, especially 4K HDR, there's more of a reason to get one, though it's still not true 4K gaming, and not as good as the Xbox One X.

* They added the option for 4K supersampling support if the game supports 4K and you are running in 1080p with a System update after I posted that originally. I.e. for games that support 4K you have the option now for better anti-aliasing if you are running at 1080p, though potentially with a frame rate hit.
** Also cause that's when they released the Glacier White version to match my Glacier White regular PS4 awesome, for real

Time to replay one of the greatest games ever made, System Shock 1:

For the first time ever, System Shock has been rebuilt from the original source code as a FREE update to all owners of the game!

System Shock: Enhanced Edition features:
- Higher resolution support up to 4K widescreen mode
- Mouselook support
- Rebindable keyboard/mouse/joystick commands
- Adapted to Nightdive's KEX engine
- Support for both Direct3D and OpenGL
- Option to switch between hi-resolution Mac assets and the original DOS assets
- Official support for fan missions and fan mods
- New unified options menu that allows changing preferences before gameplay
- Adjustable FOV (Field of View)
- Smoother camera rotation and translation
- Improved control scheme which allows faster and streamlined experience
- In-Game remappable keys with three profiles to choose from: original controls, custom controls, and lefthanded controls.
- Many original game bugs fixed.

I was in a hurry: it's a patch made by Night Dive Studios, which acquired the rights to do a remastered version a few years ago (then rebooted the whole thing):

Anyways, SS1: Enhanced Edition is available on both GOG and Steam (and it's on sale on the latter for just €4.99)

It is to my undying shame that I must admit that I never actually finished the original System Shock. I loved the concept, but the bizarre and unremappable control scheme just became too much of a chore after a while.

So thanks to Night Dive looks like I'll get a second chance.

Telltale are out of business. Everyone but a skeleton crew fired, and the latest update is that they're just finishing up porting Minecraft Story Mode to Netflix, and then they're gone too. The final season of Walking Dead is cancelled.

Looks like the deal with Netflix for a Stranger Things game that was announced around E3 fell through, and that was the final nail in the coffin. Reports are that the company has not seen a profitable title since the first season of Walking Dead, and abysmal mismanagement bears a large part of the blame.

Did the Stranger Things deal fall through, or was it a casualty of the collapse?

I didn't realize Telltale was in such trouble, but looking at the events of the past few years now yeah, anytime you bring in anyone to run your company that used to be a VP at Zynga you got to be making some more bad decisions.

I have often wondered if their critical success was really translating into sales, or if they were another Broderbund software with a really cool game (The Last Express) that not enough people ever actually played.

Well, I enjoyed everything I played by them (walking dead and Wolf Among Us were both particularly excellent).  They seemed a super solid company for the genre, but the games they make really don't need 250 people to create.  So that's probably the heart of the problem. 

Sad to hear though.  There was obviously a lot of talent there.

The mismanagement at Telltale started long before they brought in Pete Hawley from Zynga. If The Verge is to be believed the co-founder and CEO for a time Kevin Bruner is an egomaniacal tyrant who drove many of the best people at the company out including the devs who would go on to create Firewatch and Oxenfee.
