I found this snippet interesting.

It seems like Tale of Tales survived through all these years mostly due to the governmental grants. When that ended, the studio decided to make their first commercial game, and thatís how Sunset was born.

So, they survived off tax payers money in the name of making art. When that went away they tried to make a "commercial" video game and failed, so they lash out and blame it on the consumers.

Holy shit. Fuck these hipster assclowns.

They're learning the hard way. Same with the movie industry.

How does the movie industry nicke and dime? You mean concession prices?

Nah. raised prices for prime time showings, raised prices for 3D (even when it's forced on you), raised prices for Imax, 1 dollar "convenience fee" if you order tickets online etc.

Looks very nice. Hopefully they won't pull a UBI, but even if they won't, they'll still pull an EA/Dice and it'll still run like shit for a year.

How about you sell the entire game, with all monsters and hunters, and the season 2 whatever, all together for 40 bucks? Maybe people would buy it then.

I like what the new director has been doing with D3, some missteps but mostly positive stuff. Big improvement from the Wilson days. It's a much better game now than it was at release and can't argue with the value proposition or support.

It's a lot of fun on the console with local co-op.

"Here are the recommended specs. If you have these specs, we recommend that you switch everything to low, 1080p, and try not to get more than 30fps."

What a fucking joke.

Here's another idea: What if Kotaku just...stopped for a bit? And then for a bit longer? And then for a really, really, really, really, really, really, really, REALLY long bit?

New players have been the focus for well over a year and a half now, with zero fucks given for the veteran players. This is just the latest chapter in the saga.

I think it's an inherent problem with B2P business model. They are absolutely dependent on selling new copies of the game and getting new blood. Veteran players who aren't paying them jack shit are, in their eyes, just a bunch of freeloaders. Some of them might serve as evangelists for the game, but more likely any friends they would have convinced to come play have already bought in months or years ago.

You need new blood who in return recruit more new blood etc. The only way the title survives is to keep the momentum up.

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.

Dear early buyers of the core game and real fans, we want more money from you for the expansion than from the newbies. Please take this lube and bow in preparation. Thank you for your loyalty.

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.

True, but I wouldn't say welfare, food stamps, etc. are waste.

I never said they were. The waste comes from 800 billion people on the government payroll, and shit like the F35.

I'd love for them to take pointers from this excellent mod, which vastly improves visuals for little performance impact.

Before I clicked it, I was wondering if you were talking about SMIM, and yep.

Unfortunately, SMIM does have a pretty heavy cost attached to it. Not really performance wise, but budget wise in the engine. It sucks up a huge portion of the ~ 3.5GB of everything the engine can handle.

In the case of SMIM, the limitation would be taking up nearly another gigabyte for higher quality meshes, which could have meant the difference between needing another disc for Xbox 360 or not. Now that they have more leeway in that department, there's a better chance they can incorporate stuff like that into the base game. If not, maybe they'll expand on the idea of providing higher quality assets as free DLC.

Maybe I should've read on.

I sure hope that the next engine is 64 bit, so we can finally stop having their damn games crash. I love Bethesda's games, but every single one of them has crashed out the ass across all 6 or so of my PCs that I've played them on. It's been pretty damn frustrating at times.

The One:1 (one hp for every kg it weighs, 1341) is an absolutely unbelievable car, but it pales next to Koenigsegg's next car, the Regera.

and that sucks about Darryl Hamilton. :\

Anyone who thought that the PC version would actually be locked to 30fps, well... Even IF it was, a mod would kill that shit literally within an hour of the game's launch.

As for the 30fps, I don't think it matters much in a game like FO4. It's not going to be a twitch shooter. Forza Horizons 2 runs at 30fps, and it feels smooth as butter. I don't doubt that FO4 would feel the same way.

All that said, it's still pathetic that this is all the power the "next-gen" can muster.
