  1. I hate to ban as well but some people just keep pushing over and over again while so do listen. It just gets so annoying that you are better off banning than dealing with that shite daily. It also makes the forum less engaging. You can see the activity drop in game threads. So many users have stopped posting because of a few users who will continue to do the same thing and keep baiting. I can see them reading and liking but won't comment much. Even spoke to a few and their response was simply "no point as it always ends the same". I don't blame them at all. If everyone is going to keep fighting/baiting/childish the forum will end up with just 3-4 members in game threads. Have fun then I guess. Forum grows with community and moderation is voluntary. No staff is here to warn or ban people or want them gone. We even slide so many reports daily because they are childish and hope it won't come again. We want people to stay, engage in the topic, speak their minds without getting personal but if you can't do that then don't. Some banter is okay but there is no reason you have to take part in every thread and spoil it. Don't know why this thread has taken so many turns and got personal. Activision or Microsoft or any company isn't going to pay you nor is your friend. They are doing their business and will continue to do so. Do you really think they didn't do their research before announcing or didn't have meetings over weeks/months? Delusion if you think otherwise. People just want games and want to play them. MS/GP users are happy because they can finally play the damn CoD SP without shelling $60 yearly. The rest is just a good bonus. 😌 They may increase the GP price in future but it hasn't happened yet. So am not going to break my head thinking about what will happen to my existing 3 year GP sub...

  17. What nonsense ! You think a company spending close to 70 billion USD on a deal won't have thought it through ? It's clear Nadella is nurturing a team open to taking risks and bets, which is much different than what was done previously. And MS is also open to fund games like Psychonauts 2, which means they are also open to experimental stuff.

  18. Can confirm, they are still working on the CDNs, specific for India. I have seen them running internal demos, not sure when it will be available for launch.

  19. As usual more fluff. Sure did. At least use proper and actual source and not half-baked stuff. Another one: So sad to see how hard you trying to prove CoD isn't on top still.

  20. A 70 billion USD conspiracy theory !? Come on dude, any working person will know that's not how conglomerates work. I've been through 3 major M&As in my work tenure (infact we have been White Knighted once, saving from a dirty takeover), and these cultural issues will obviously take time to solve. Generally a lot of integration has to be completed, and it takes 6-12 months at the bare minimum to even plan and barely execute how to manage these acquisitions. Most cultural integrations take time - few months to even few years. That said, as long as the voice of employees is dominant on social media, MS cannot hide. Pretty sure their HR will cook a way out of these issues. But they'll most likely be stuck in a limbo - will Activision still help them before the acquisition is completed ? Will they have to wait post acquisition ? Most likely no one knows right now.

  21. This is bad. There was no concept of paid online multiplayer before microsoft. And remember that Microsoft already raised the price of 6 months gold to $60 from 12 months for the same price. They retracted it, but they did it. "For the gamers": Its all PR. Gamepass is going to be at least $30 a month in 3-4 years time. And, there would be no more retail games. I am pretty sure that most people don't buy or play $360 worth of games in a year. Moreover, you don't own anything. The concept of Don Matrick of online Xbox games with no ownership is coming true. He couldn't execute it. Now, it is coming true. Netflix for Xbox is coming for your ownership of your games. No more used games. This is really bad for the gaming industry.

  26. A bit tired of regurgitating the same thing again and again, but both of you need to look outside the PS and MS world to realise that none of them have the same IP power as Nintendo. Quite literally Mario has a better pull and brand recognition than GoW, Halo etc combined. Nintendo never works like Sony or MS. For the later, gaming is ONE of the pillars they stand on. For Nintendo, it is the ONLY pillar they stand on. And that's why they approach gaming from a much different perspective. They are never looking at a big budget cinematic approach, but rather appealing and approachable gameplay, which can be enjoyed by everyone from a 5 year old to 90 year old. Their core gamers are not concerned about graphics, rather innovative gameplay. I keep on saying that you'll not realise the power of Nintendo till you play a certain segment of games - Zelda games through the ages, 3D Mario games through the ages (specially Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, SM3D World + BF and SMO, Animal Crossing, among others). The sheer variety of gameplay in 2 hours of SMG surpasses what you'll find in most AAA cinematic games. And that's what keeps their core audience hooked. Most of their games will also have a local coop mechanic, since they are one of the rare companies still focussing on family play. A typical "hardcore" gamer might not think much about it, but Nintendo has a wide and varied audience, and thanks to Switch and Lite, it'll most likely be the first consoles for young ones to play on, further cementing their position. Heck, my daughter loves playing MK8 and Mario Party on Switch, and she cannot even read ! With a combination of unique culture, approach of gameplay, extremely powerful IPs, and innovative hardware, Nintendo is a company least bothered by such issues. A plethora of 3rd party publishers have seen the success of their games on Switch, and for all its underpowered HW, their are millions of people who still prefer to play Doom and Witcher on Switch vs a TV based console. There's a reason why it sells like hot cakes, outselling the other consoles by double or triple numbers. Sony or Nintendo are not going anywhere. They have ample experience to pivot based on market trends, and continue their march, and even create segments of their own.

  27. If you want to use the Netflix analogy, what we should really care about is that irrespective of the platform (purchase, subscription, stream), the types of films and shows that were being made 20 years ago (from big budget to indie to niche sub-genres) are still being made today. So even if gaming goes the subscription and/or streaming way, we'll still get the types of games we enjoy enjoy. Isn't that what matters?

  29. Advice for those planning to play this with their son/daughters. Dont. A. They keep begging you to start the next session of games. B. They get surprisingly aggresive and angry when you don't make a jump or do some co op part. Role reversal here at home as my daughter yells at me and i sulk.

  30. I think it's pretty clear what she's trying to do. Trying to make virat some sort of Martyr and gain public sympathy. whenever she got trolled for cricketing reasons, she was always please leave me out of cricket stuff and now she jumped right in. Should he have left test captaincy? No. Is he our greatest ever test captain? Maybe. Was there internal politics behind him laeving test captaincy? Imo absolutely yes BUT virat had it coming. He threw a sissy fit when his odi captaincy was taken and said he was informed only an hour before. So what? Did he inform numerous players before dropping them. He infact ruined and insulted so many players like karun nair, Rayudu, vijay, yuvraj after telling him to clear yo-yo which he did(though his form was debatable), Ash, kuldeep, etc. Heck even rahane who was his VC was dropped in a test match and he didn't know the status of his LOI VC rohit during Australian tour citing "havent spoken to him". even in his captaincy quitting statement he just named one coach (shastri) while he was captain under 4-5 different coaches. If you can't show basic courtesy to others, don't expect it to be returned.

  34. actually a good deal for Playstation gamers. This will keep sony from getting too arrogant and push them harder so we will get better games while those struggling studios get cash to stay afloat and we dont lose out on IPs . A win win for gamers.

  35. There is enough “shaming” happening here, it just depends which news bubble you want to be in. If there were literal bodies floating down the Mississippi and funeral pyres you could see from a satellite, it would have been as loud. Also find it very weird the obsession people have of posting stuff about other countries leaders (endless posts on Fauci, Kamala, Biden). Indians should be the last people to give advice on who others should be electing….
