GTA V PS4 release date now Nov 4. as timed-exclusive - rumor.

Skeptical, but awesome if it means playing GTA earlier...


You're buying it on PS4? So in other words, you're buying this game, for console, at full price, TWICE before you even get it for PC?

Why must you dishonor yourself with such peasant behavior?

nin is Rockstar's personal piggy bank. Give him a break.

I've never played this before so I don't own any of the DLC anywhere - and they all cost me Bioware Points. Return to Ostagar costs 400 points, which in turn costs 3.00.

About the only DLC that's really worth it for DA:O is the Shale one. The rest is pretty damn mediocre to just plain poor, so I wouldn't waste any money on it.

Actually, Leliana's Song was really good, but it doesn't tie in with the main campaign, it's more of a little mini-RPG on the side.

Looks like a lot of the DLC is free too? It let me grab Return to Ostagar and a bunch of other stuff without paying unless its somehow linked my old Bioware account to my Origin one.

It will have, yes. They replaced the Bioware accounts with Origin accounts, but imported everyone's Bioware account into Origin. So if the email address is the same, it would have known you owned certain DLCs.

@ work and handicapped to look stuff up (miracle this site isn't blocked). Anyway, will DA3 have a certain introduction for those who no longer have their savegames.. so that they can still have the universe built from the choices they (would have) made in the earlier games?

I won't have time to replay DA1 and 2 before 3's release, it's why I ask

yes it's an online program called dragon age keep and it's in beta right now, slated to be released before DA:I. you can sign up for it, but i doubt you'd get in. save game transfers was wonky as fuck anyway. i just hope i can remember everything i did in 1 and 2.

From the stuff I've ready about it, it's going to be pretty interactive, so it won't just be a list of "Did you pick A or B when Alistair wanted to bang his sister?"

Apparently it will even contain some movies/animated stuff to show the effect of your choices, and it should show you how certain choices rippled through the storyline, which should be cool.

They're still looking into allowing you to import saves into Dragon Keep, but dragon keep will be the only way to import a custom state into DA:I, which makes sense, given how often save importing broke shit in DA2 and ME2/3. By putting it all in a single web-based portal, it should work flawlessly when importing into DA:I, plus it will also allow you to take your world state from a console and import it into the PC version if you wanted.

All in all I think it's a pretty good solution, but they've kept saying that it'd be out a month or so before DA:I, and that date is really, really fast approaching.

News Comments > The Evil Within > 30 FPS "Not Supported"
17. Re: The Evil Within > 30 FPS Oct 9, 2014, 10:47 Creston
 
Shinji Mikami and the team at Tango designed The Evil Within to be played at 30fps and to utilize an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 for all platforms

unmentioned "because that's all the shitty old consoles would run."


At least you can unlock it on the PC, which is appreciated, but it screams "SHITTY PORT AHOY!" though.

The DICE M.O.

1) Offer rote apology about how you will do better about the Battlefield games being in such fucking pisspoor shape at launch Every.Single.Time.
2) Announce new Battlefield game / new edition shortly after apology. (In this case, like 5 hours! Bonus!)
3) Watch plenty of idiots rush out to buy your broken shit again.
4) Profit.


Also

Priority position in server queues

Also known as the "FUCK YOU ASSHOLES WHO HAVE BEEN BETA TESTING THIS SINCE LAUNCH!" corollary.

There's something amusing about WinZip still kicking after all of these years.

And still charging thirty dollars.

For something I can get done for free out of the box in Windows.

They don't even care about the sale price of Winzip, since they know full well nobody ever buys it anyway.

They make their money solely through auditing corporations, finding all the "trial" copies of winzip that the staff of said corporations has installed, then charging insane penalties for said unlicensed copies. (thousands of dollars per copy.)

Comcast is THE worst, no doubt. However, I can't see a company firing an employee just because another company calls and complains that said employee isn't paying his bill. But then again maybe I am missing something. Or maybe I am underestimating just how vile corporate America really is.

PWC fired him because Comcast claimed he was basically threatening their employees, and throwing PWC's name around.

He claims that's untrue. Only the tape will know the truth, but since Comcast will undoubtedly mysteriously "lose" the tape, I'm going to believe the guy.

Oh, and have no doubt that companies would do shit like this. Comcast is probably a 10+ million dollar customers of PWC in that office, so one call from Big Muckity Muck at Comcast to PWC, and PWC will be out in the streets sucking dick to try to keep their business. Firing one employee? SURE!

Limited quantities of a digital ship? Ok I'm gonna go back to not following this games development, peace out

Here is what they say regarding this:
"890 Jump sales are limited for the same game-balancing reason as the Idris; it's a big part of our universe, but it shouldn't be everywhere at launch."

890 Jump sales are limited because when things are limited, they sell better.

Every car manufacturer knows this.

Blablablablablablablabla. You fuckers do this every time. You'll do it again with your next game too.

You're one of the worst devs when it comes to releasing games, and you're matched up with one of the worst publishers when it comes to releasing games, so I'm going to say that your next game is going to suck just as bad, and all your sheeple fans will still buy it, and you'll all go "Eh, they keep buying it, so let's just keep shoveling shit out the door."
