Yeah, I’m ribbing a multi-billion-dollar publisher for being misleading in its PR. If you don’t like that, there are plenty of more PR-friendly reporters and websites out there to follow!

I like to think that one of the cool things about Kotaku is that you can come here for more information than you’ll get from a publisher’s press release. This is a good example of that. It’s not necessarily controversial or explosive info — it’s just context that you won’t find anywhere else.

Who’s going to break it to Junior that daddy will never love him no matter how many dumb “libs drool” books he writes and Fox News appearances he makes?

I don’t know whether to laugh or get mad at these responses. It’s almost like they don’t want to sell to informed consumers who do their prep, rather take advantage of the sucker who walks in the door with absolutely no clue.

The higher limits of an R8 could be negated by a poor driver. The lower limits of a CR-V could be enhanced by a skilled driver. You can’t pick and chose your speed limits. Read more

LMAO You know you fucked up when Congress actually does something about it.

And I’m sure Trump has literally zero idea that’s the case. “He was technically correct even though he has no idea what the hell he’s talking about” isn’t an acceptable bar for a kindergartener, let alone the POTUS.

I absolutely love D2, but the gripes you point out are so, so real. They do such a terrible job of story and narrative, which is massively frustrating when you look into some of the lore and background to find amazing depth and concept there. They just utterly fail to link it to the gameplay, such a missed opportunity. Read more

Don’t know if it will make you feel any better but I’ve been playing since Destiny 1 beta and honestly it’s always been like this, haha. Read more

“I felt COMPLETELY and utterly lost.” That was pretty much the original Destiny’s mantra when it released. There were systems in there that weren’t explained at all!

Wait, you’re wondering if a news outlet would use the word “millennial” in a story about a young person? Are you familiar with news outlets?

“Florida Boomer” really frames the story by conveying the proper mix of “get off my lawn!” and “divorced guy energy” to motivate someone to endanger the lives of innocents because of a trivial annoyance.

Congratulations, you’ve regurgitated the same short-sighted argument that’s been made by Epic apologists since day one. We get it, you personally don’t care about Steam’s numerous benefits. Good for you. Millions of people do care about those benefits and see them as added value to any game they own. When a game is Read more

Valve never paid for a Steam exclusive. If games were Steam “exclusives”, it was only because the publisher decided they didn’t need to list on any other online stores. Epic is paying handsomely for their exclusives.

Exclusivity isn’t platform-limited. It can be limited by any kind of factor. If the Epic Games store is the only store selling a digital product, then they have complete control over the price and how that product can be used. That’s obviously exclusivity by any reasonable definition. (That being said, the same thing Read more

There is zero benefit to the customer when Epic nabs an exclusive for themselves, and several tangible negatives. It’s pretty straightforward to understand, and so thank you for this breakdown.
