It's finally happening, companies are making a living off of sequential kickstarters. A kickstarter only company.

How is this different than a company seeking normal investors? Sure, the investors don't get equity, but it does leave the creative control in the hands of the devs rather than the moneymen. That's what your money is buying, an uncompromised vision. That's worth paying for imo.
Not very different. I did not mean anyone to infer that what I said was some kind of dig.

News Comments > Valve Apologizes as Hatred Greenlight Campaign Returns
109. Re: Valve Apologizes as Hatred Greenlight Campaign Returns Dec 17, 2014, 18:03 Overon
 
The trailer made me feel disgust. The brutality of the theme is offensive to me. However, I don't advocate censorship of things I find offensive or disgusting. I need better reasons than just "I'm disgusted" or "I'm offended" to want censorship.

Give us better arguments than the above as to why anything should be banned or removed or censored.

Also, let it not be said that I am inconsistent. I think pornographic games should not be censored either. And I agree there is a weird double standard where violence is okay but sex is not in USA society. If anything it should be the other way around.

Also Valve has a right to remove anything it does not want for any reason, good or bad. I also think people have a right to protest Hatred being on Steam and advocate for removing it.

This kind of stuff is good for valve, but for everyone else seems like it's worthless waste of time. It seems like multilevel marketing in the sense that 99% of people don't even break even.

I saw videos of dumb A.I. This harder difficulty won't make the A.I. smarter. A.I. is the one glaring area where games have not gotten better in.

I'm in the catalyst control center after installing these drivers. How do I do the supersampling and all other features? I don't see them.

Batman kills people instead of just beating them within an inch of their life and leaving them crippled for life. How else do you explain the militarized batmobile? This is Punisher style Batman.
The hostile tanks and helicopters don't have humans in them, but are remotely controlled.
Oh wow. But how do you explain batman beating people within an inch of their life and likely crippling them for life or psychologically damaging them for life? Can't get out of that one, that easy

He's not beating people. He's beating criminals. Or more aptly, he's..."correcting" them, sir.
Evilgrin
Criminals are people, you torturer.

It's not early access shovelware, so other than the silly pre-orders, they can take all the time they want.

I was not really a fan of the previous Witcher games. However this third installment looks like it will simply be too good to pass up. Its cinematic (but in a good way) open world and oozes with atmosphere. Cant wait.
Burn the witch!

And as far as her importance goes... well, most of the fourth book (Time of Contempt) follows her, not Geralt, so you can imagine how important she is. She's a HUGE deal.

I wonder how much game time they will a lot to her character.
Probably just a little to show her running for her life.

Blue, how dare you screw up the lore of the witcher? Ciri has been around since before Iphone and Tome Cruise's daughter. Nerd rage!

News Comments > Dying Light Specs Scaled Back
15. Re: Dying Light Specs Scaled Back Dec 6, 2014, 09:30 Overon
 
As I said in the previous thread on this: This is Techland. Not a developer known for their ability to deliver on technical grounds and now we can rest assured we are likely to get a console port. But of course I could be wrong and Techland can do what they have never done before deliver a sound PC game.

Not good news for port when they recommend an xbox 360 controller...

How is it going to run on the consoles? Maybe these specs are an indication that it will be worthy of a PC game or that it's poorly optimized, it is Techland after all. They are not know for their polish.

The game is designed with too many console imposed limitations.

As a non-Twitch user, what's wrong with Twitch exactly?
I think I just want the competition.
