News Comments > Five Nights at Freddy's Developer Responds to "Hate"
8. Re: Five Nights at Freddy's Developer Responds to Jul 29, 2015, 20:37 Squirmer
 
The big publishers are charging $60 per game, upwards of $100 for collector's editions, an extra $30 for "season passes" for content that doesn't exist yet, still more for Day 1 DLC so they can charge more than $60 for the complete game, nickel and diming people for cosmetic shit that nobody needs -- and people are attacking a lonesome indie developer for making games that people are enjoying? Get some perspective for fuck's sake.

News Comments > The Witcher III: Wild Hunt Game+ Mode Coming

The combat's not great but it works. You can only "button mash" against a single humanoid enemy really, any more than that and you can't just stand there left-clicking. Bosses with crush you if you don't play smart. I'm playing on the hardest difficulty though, where using signs and potions (or great timing) are often necessary. If you're playing on easy and complaining about button-mashing, then it's your fault really.

Geralt's movement is terrible, but the recent patch helped a lot with that.

I should say that apparently the DLC was poorly programmed, like amateurish stuff, and so the game kept crashing etc. But even so, it was fun and mostly worked, so if they've addressed the problems this should be worth playing.

Nah it wasn't shit, but it was really buggy. Fixes for all the problems are more important than "new features".

Early access allows games to get made that would otherwise not be made. You take the bad with the good, and do some research before you buy something.

Mount and Blade was sold as a 'beta' for about 4 years before its retail release, and that worked out well.

Bullshit, they've said on Twitter that there would be no DLC worked on until the PC version is fixed, and guess what? DLC released. Money talks, bullshit walks.

Actually said this on Twitter a week ago:

To clarify: PC is top priority for engine team but there'll still be updates for consoles too. Not all issues are fixed by same people.

If you really think fixing the PC version isn't a priority, you're being a petulant baby. They pulled the PC version from sale, so they're passing up money every day they don't have it fixed. Of course it's a priority.

Which tells me he as absolutely no clue about anyone younger than 40 or the fact that nobody gives a shit how they look when they sit half-naked in front of their high-end gaming altar.. VR or not, doesn't exactly change a damn thing and how you look matters absolutely nothing when you are half-naked because your gaming rig is making the room hot as shit ;p
Half-naked people sitting in front of their "gaming rig" make up an extremely small proportion of the population. If those are the people who are supposed to be driving VR, Spector's point seems even more valid.

Yeah, it makes sense for them to do it that way, but it's not great for the people who've played for several years, maybe bought craploads of gems, to be told that they're basically irrelevant and can't you please just go away/die already.


Yep it really sucks. I'm sad to see the subscription model for MMOs dying out because it's really the only model that allows a game to stay afloat without milking its customers for every penny or requiring huge influxes of new players. It also puts everyone on the same footing, more or less.
What about all those MMOs that charge a subscription AND offer microtransaction items? $15 for a month's play, oh and here's a new horse you can buy for $20 too. You really miss that model?

News Comments > Tale of Tales Closing

This is pretty weird. I wouldn't have considered Sunset a "game for gamers" at all. I haven't played it, but figured it was more along the lines of walking sims like Gone Home and so forth, more of an emerging niche (a very boring one imo, but some people seem to like those games). I don't know why they were trying to compromise their own ideas if they went the Kickstarter route; surely Kickstarter is good for putting your own ideas out there, not making a game for some imagined audience.

Anyway, these two might be interesting artists, but they're not game designers. From reading some Steam reviews, it seems like the "gameplay" in this game involves pressing one of two buttons occasionally, and just doesn't sound very interesting. And it inexplicably suffers from performance issues.

I think ArenaNet could calm people down by throwing in a character slot at the $50 level, or dropping the expansion price to $40. They'll need to do something, this is really bad press for them.

I think people are missing the point a bit. No one's saying Eidos can't use themes of bigotry and segregation etc. The problem is the specific use of the term "apartheid" which was a specific set of policies resulting in the oppression of the black population and curtailment their rights. Many people died in the struggle against those policies.

It's an easy term to throw around, but much harder to handle with sensitivity and respect for the people who suffered under it. Using it to market your videogame story could seem pretty insensitive since they're not addressing the actual policy of apartheid as it existed in the real world; they're just leveraging an emotional term as shorthand. It's a bit gross that Eidos literally trademarked the term apartheid.

Looks like still has the same problems as HR, like giving XP for every little thing you do. You get 10-20xp for each enemy you KO/kill, but if you ghost past them presumably you get nothing. Not surprising, since their definition of ghosting is KOing every enemy.

And the hacking minigame is back, so I guess half of all the augs will be devoted to that again.

Just hope that "color correction" doesn't make things the same piss yellow color of HR.

Unless the game is actually a movie, this is not a "gameplay" trailer.

GW2 was a letdown for me bigtime and feels like cashgrab especially with this expansion...
Yeah that no-subscription model and all those free updates they released over the past 3 years was definitely a cash grab...

Ubisoft's "open worlds" are always very shallow. If it's a good shooter like the Far Crys it might be worth playing, but I'm not expecting much more.

It's not gameplay, but it's a mockup of gameplay. They did the same with the first game's trailer. That's representative of how it will play, but technically not gameplay.
