I wouldn't say that is a L4D3 tease at all. He was just using it as an example to reinforce the comment he just made. The Click Baiting is starting to annoy me on this site.

Doubtful. If anything, it's drawing inspiration from the same real-life "Skull Squadron" that Macross/Robotech did.

Well, they are working on something as they are still interacting with their community but being very silent about any work being done. The aircraft design goes hand in hand with the vehicle design of DoK.

Microsoft refund COD: Infinite Warfare Windows Store buyers due to low player countMicrosoft refund COD: Infinite Warfare Windows Store buyers due to low player count

Gabe has quite vocally called Microsoft out on several occasions on how their business ethic is bad for everyone in the past. Personally, the way he put forward these comments was more on personal ethic than any marketing ploy.


Microsoft always comes across totally disjointed when talking about their products and their consumer base. It will take a long time, if ever, for Microsoft to seem get customers back on board.

It's their pride, and ego. Surely they realize that they're not top dog when it comes to the gaming space on PC, but I don't know if we'll ever see them compromise for the benefit of consumers.


They're becoming the Yahoo, or AOL of PC gaming; unwilling to change or compromise, and offer second rate services that no one wants which ultimately embarrass them.

Seems you got that the wrong way around Empyre, PC is more expensive. ;)

Pitchforks down people, Steam aren't making exceptions to their refund policy for No Man's SkyPitchforks down people, Steam aren't making exceptions to their refund policy for No Man's Sky

I work in customer services and of course, you have company policy, but ultimately the man on the ground has to make a call and then they can be managed on their decision there after. You do what you can to get the customer walking away satisfied by reasonable means. If I personally had a refund complaint to deal with about this game being falsely advertised I would 95% of time oblige them.

This game had a marketing campaign which was made of complete bullshit, with a tipple of spin doctoring. In any other marketing sector it would be completely unacceptable.Reply

"the man on the ground has to make a call and then they can be managed on their decision there after."


Which is exactly why the last company I worked for had policies that most of the time, meant said man on the ground not only had to deny the customer what they were asking, plus didn't have the power to grant anyway. But invariably after the customer getting mad and the manager coming over, the manager would accept the request and then the employee looked bad to the customer. Good times.

It might have been better if they'd launched as a PvE only game, yeah. The fact that they never even really advertised the PvE just drove me nuts, they just kept pushing the advertisement for the PvP segment. Most Overwatch players who seem to hate it on principle don't even seem to realise it has a PvE component.
