I love Sunset Overdrive, and Horizons 2. But that's really about all the good exclusives the Xbone's got. It's been out almost two fucking years.

That's just plain pathetic.

Maybe one day, the Xbone will get some good games to go with those fancy controllers!

Funny how people are fine with delays like this, but not when a game is crowdfunded. Not talking about Star Citizen, which there's reason to be skeptical of, but other crowdfunded games. It's like there's an extra sense of entitlement when you've helped to fund something. Worth remembering that most games get delayed at some stage in their development.

Most people here are fine with their crowdfunded games being delayed, but at the same time, it's a bit easier to be cavalier about a delay when said delayed game currently has zero of your dollars tied up in it.

While disappointing, I'd rather enjoy a well built and robust XCOM experience.

Same here, I would rather they take their time and get it right. The first game was good but had a lot of aspects that felt rushed.

What in particular did you feel was rushed? Just curious.

Didn't make much sense to try to release in such a busy schedule anyway, so no big deal.

the world has been divided into two factions following a huge cataclysmic event known as ‘The Shattering’ that changed gravity forever. Afterward, the world recovered and ushered in a new age technological advancements providing gravity manipulation and supplement use that grants near-superhuman abilities.

I didn't think it was possible, but cliffyb actually managed to write an underlying theme for a game that's even more fucking ridiculous than Gears of War.

News Comments > PC Assassin's Creed Syndicate Delayed

Wow, nobody saw that coming. Rolleyes

For the next one, they're going to go back to having you need to be always online. It's quite amazing how quickly they're burning up that goodwill they'd built up over the past few years. (well, not this past year, but before.)

Sam Kovalev, Studio Production Manager at Ubisoft Kiev, tells us the development team is dedicated to ensuring PC players get the most stable, optimized version of the game on day one.

Ubisoft Kiev has yet to deliver a single PC port that hasn't been a terribly buggy, poorly optimized piece of shit. So it doesn't matter how dedicated they are, they're too incompetent to be able to pull it off.

It contains stuff no other game does

Yep. 10000 km^2 of essentially empty grassland, auto-generated quests that are so crappy that they make Skyrim's Radiant quests look like the Witcher 3 in comparison, random dungeons that are so large that you will literally get lost in them forever, randomly generated towns that all look the same, etc.

I mean, technically the game was incredibly impressive for its day and age, but holy crap is it boring as hell to play.

GMG had a 40% off deal on it just a few days ago. Might still be valid:

Don't you need to demonstrate some kind of damages done to you in order to start a private lawsuit? You can't just start a lawsuit and say "I demand that company so and so, in which I have zero dollars worth of financial stakes, answer all my questions!"

That's why they gave him a refund, so they wouldn't have any obligations to him.

Weird. In any case, if this goes forward, look forward to a large chunk of that 86 million going to lawyer fees.

I feel bad for these guys, they're one of the good guys.

Yeah, though I'm normally very skeptical, in the case of FrozenByte I do believe them, and so it's a very unfortunate set of events. I've very much enjoyed their games, Shadowgrounds was awesome, and Trine and Trine 2 were a lot of fun, but a puzzle game with 4-5 hours of content doesn't really strike me as all that great...

I hope this doesn't put them out of business...

How is this different from what it is today? Most updates just say "this update fixes shit."

Can you no longer go to their update website and find out more details?

Maybe one day we'll get the behind the scenes dirt.

I'm pretty sure it went something like this:
"Let's spend 12 bucks on the PC port. Fuck those asshole pirates! Put some nice screenshots up so we get lots of preorders, and then deliver a giant piece of shit. We'll be rolling in cash!"
"Sir, everyone is demanding a refund on Steam! And Steam is now granting them!"
"GODDAMMIT!"

uch to license the music. There are 240 licensed songs in GTA5 and, according to ASCAP, the upper limit for licensing is typically around $20,000 per song - assuming all were that much it would amount to $4.8m. In reality some were probably a lot cheaper and some more expensive, so $5m is a reasonable estimate.

Like I said, I can't remember where I read it, and a quick google search doesn't turn up anything but that 20K number, so I may well be wrong. (or remember 50 million when they'd said 5 million.)

5 million seem low, though, for a game that's sold... what, 52 million copies? 10 cents per copy for all the songs? I was not under the impression the RIAA was that generous.
