I agree with the spirit of the article, but I can't agree with the conclusion. Games have no obligations beyond entertaining you.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is free on Humble, and it’s time to let old wounds healThe Bureau: XCOM Declassified is free on Humble, and it’s time to let old wounds heal

Is The Bureau good? It's honestly hard to tell at times. My personal experience was tainted by me holding lofty expectations based on the namesake of which it is based, and the fact I paid full price for it back in the day. What I can say is this: It's a fairly competent shooter, and if you try to ignore how the game is connected to XCOM (despite the title) you may find yourself enjoying the aesthetics and gameplay.

For free it's basically a steal, and well worth anyones time.

In the official announcement, DICE executive producer John Wasilczyk says "change will be a constant" for the game. "

Ah, okay. They're planning on changing it back once everyone has bought the game. Gotcha.

Why ZeniMax don't call The Elder Scrolls Online an MMO anymoreWhy ZeniMax don't call The Elder Scrolls Online an MMO anymore

Is it online only? Is it multiplayer only? Does it support a massive concurrent playerbase? Yes? It's an MMO.Reply

If he made it and owns it, he can call it whatever he wants to XD If he wants to call the game a tortoise, it's not our place to deny him that choice. Not that it'll force us to do the same.


The statement alone will never stop people seeing or comparing it too other MMOs, but the entire point is to try and interest the single player gamers, the Skyrim and Fallout RPGers, that they want them to believe they can have fun in this game with our without using the MMO social aspects. It's also happily take their side (that the MP components are not needed to enjoy this title).

I still wouldn't recommend a new player get into this game (there are generally better RPGs out there, both for the SP and the MP gamers), but I know many who love the ES universe and have enjoyed ESO as a single player game (even a couple who became multiplayer players where they used to avoid anything MP).

Ah, okay, yeah, that I can agree with. I suppose we should count ourselves lucky they didn't end up using 3.0.

what? no. This ain't /pol/ son. Cultural Marxism don't real.


I mean the developer and publisher lack credentials, and the system itself has lots of issues left over from the 3.5 era
