It looks good. Meh about the batmobile, but whatever.

I still need to play City though.

1. Who really thinks in any meaningful % that gov't is efficient at spending tax dollars?

Oh, the government is incredibly efficient at spending tax dollars. In fact, I daresay that the US government is by FAR the most efficient entity in the world when it comes to spending money.

They are very efficient at spending tax dollars. They cannot, however, spend those tax dollars efficiently.

People will pay what they can afford and what they are willing to pay. Puget Alain sounds like one of these entitled devs who feel that his games are worth $500 and should never go on sale, and should be bought by every single living organism on the planet, because that's his just due.

Here's a simple hint, Puget: People have less money to spend overall, because the economy has been in the shitter twice in the last 15 years and inflation has far outstripped raises over that period. This means they spend less money on entertainment. This means they spend less money on games.

So you can choose not to go on sale, and have large numbers of people not buy your games at all, or you can figure, well, maybe I can get a thousand of these people to buy my game at $10, which means you just made $10K.

And yes, some people may have bought it at $60, but decided to wait until it was $10. That's the risk you take. Nobody owes you a steady paycheck. If you don't like that risk, take a job programming business software.

We even took out an advertisement on Rock, Paper, Shotgun, where we figured the people most interested in Sunset would be gathered. They must all use AdBlock because that had no effect whatsoever.

From what I've seen over the years, the only place where advertising actually works is on Penny Arcade because Gabe and Tycho will actually draw attention to it by mentioning it in their posts and asking people to go buy the game. I'm pretty sure that the large majority of RPS visitors have adblock on, or ignore all the ads.

Anyway, yeah, it sucks. You made a game, it didn't sell. This happens to most games.

I got 4 games. SS2, since it was 99 cents. Starpoint Gemini 2, and two Final Fantasy games, and that was it.

None of the stuff I was interested in went on any kind of big sale. Maybe at Xmas.

Looks awesome

Only thing I'm concerned about are the driving physics, which look to be maybe even more arcadey this time around

Yeah and the weird thing was that they'd said they hired a few devs with good driving game experience (I think they'd worked on Burnout games or something) to make sure it would be better this time around.

But oh well, you won't be in a car all that often anyway.

500 Mbps broadband for $55.

Let me guess, with a 5GB cap?

We're so continuing to support it, we mentioned it zero times at E3.

Just give it the fuck up already. You're not supporting the stupid thing anymore, which is actually the right decision, and you've shafted every single early adopter up the ass with that decision. None of them believe you anymore, so it is what it is.

Keep selling your box for $175 at best buy, and you'll keep doing well.

Is it done by Ubisoft Kiev? In that case, it won't shine, it'll be the same shit we've had in the previous 3 shitty ports they've done.

"We want the game to really work well on the PC on day one, which is why it's not the same launch [date] as the Xbox One and the PS4 versions. It will come a bit later in the fall, but I think it will be worth the wait."

Oh, I see, it's just your usual bullshit fabrication on why the PC version is delayed.

I'm sure it'll be enjoyable when I pick it up for 5 bucks two years down the road.

It's a great video, but I wonder why it's called "stealth", as literally every guard he kills has the "ALERT!" wiggles above their heads.

Looks great, but they should rename that "Depth of Field/Bokeh" part to "Legally Blind". Holy shit, that is waaaaay overdone.
They were showing off the engine feature - that's not how it will be used in-game. The only time it might look similar is when looking down a scope.

That would make more sense. It doesn't much matter to me tbh, as like nin I turn that off within 5 seconds of first launching a game.

Apparently no paid mods planned either which is a good sign.

Yeah I think that really bit them in the ass hard. And they probably hadn't thought about the necessity of reworking their "We don't give a shit about mods" attitude when they release patches/add-ons.

I'd send the guy a pip-boy edition if I was Bethesda, then put a note up on the website saying "We have enough bottlecaps now to buy a plasma rifle. We don't need anymore."

Have fun with it. Don't be like those fucking humorless shitty pricks at Bioware who got 100 red, green and blue cupcakes sent to them after the ME3 ending, and posted a completely humorless "we can't accept these" note on their website, then tossed them in the trash.

You can still smell that arrogance two years later.

Hopefully you'll get to haul cattle. My uncle drives a rig and he mostly hauls cattle. The thing about that is they move around which causes the weight of the truck to shift. This makes for a very different driving experience than hauling things that don't move.

Plus you have to not kill them by taking turns too hard.

It doesn't sound like cattle would be the smart thing for my trucking company (Called "@128kph!") to haul...

but i really appreciate beth and now cdpr with witcher 3 for proving that there is a gigantic market for overwhelmingly huge games with 100s and 100s of hours of playtime

because i think that open world non-linear RPGs need this by default... at the very least, that is my preference for them

i dont marathon these games, i play them over months and months - and that really gives it the epic feeling of a real quest in a real fantasy world.. you know, it was a lot easier to achieve that feeling when i was younger and had to use my imagination more because the game tech was so primitive... but now that we have what we have, i am glad at least some companies are willing to step up to that in a modern way

Well said, and I agree. I love massive open world games.

I loved exploring in FO3, there was just a lot more to see than there was in FO:NV. And finding new stuff after 400+ hours of play is pretty much par for the course for Bethesda games.

Over a thousand hours into Skyrim, I still found a new quest I'd never done before.

My dogs love making friends with other animals, especially frogs (of which there are millions right now. THANKS HURRICANE BILL!)

Then when we go back out later, they spend a long time just frantically searching the spot where their little frog buddy had been. It's pretty funny.

As for deer, a herd of horses near my house has actually apparently adopted a little baby deer. It's been with them for over a month, it's very cool to see.
