News Comments > Grand Theft Auto V PC First-Person Confirmed
56. Re: Grand Theft Auto V PC First-Person Confirmed Nov 4, 2014, 21:35 Beamer
 
I just spent the past 24 hours in LA. In a rented Camaro (which is one giant blind spot.) I picked a friend up at her place in broad beach and just cruised up and down Malibu this afternoon. Thanks to gtav it was startlingly familiar. Crazy how the game does that.

Yes, the PS4 is a great console.

Neither has a game worth the entry price, the ps4 just had a disastrous update, and the xbone is 90% useless features.

Who could possible call either "great" with a straight face?

You can belittle all you like, Beremot, but given the gaming press' distinct lack of integrity - and Polygon in particular - I am going to default to thinking everything they claim is bullshit until proven otherwise. Of course, if you weren't so emotionally invested you wouldn't come off sounding like an unhinged loon but that's for you to deal with. I hear Prozac works. I don't need a wall of condescending text to say it either.

Edit: Obviously you missed it, but even your noble hero incarnate Beamer admitted calling it out is new for them. That wasn't happening before GG and I doubt they were following their stated policy (that I admitted from the beginning existed so quit crying) before then, and I don't really give a shit if you agree or not. You might want to quit sucking his ass long enough to get your stuff straight.

What unethical has polygon done? Most people whine about them taking messages into account in their reviews, but isn't that how you judge art?

Otherwise, I've seen no accusations, valid or otherwise, about them being unethical. And you can't just assume they never followed their posted ethics statement before and are now with no proof they didn't then or are now, right?

Hell, here's an article from Ars Technica on the topic, from 4 years ago. And from Ben Kuchera, who's pretty much as hated by GG as one can get without having ovaries.

Call of Duty: Black Ops review event

I've posted that here a few times.
That's the issue people need to fight against. That's what AAA publisher PR departments have done.

PS4 is absolutely sharper, but you're right. No one is looking at these side to side. You put these on a 40"-60" TV and sit 5 to 12 feet away and you'll struggle to tell the difference even side by side. But no one goes side to side. People have one device and probably one copy of the game. Functionally, there's little difference.

The difference is perception and it plays into the PR war that Sony has been running away with from the beginning, that's why the PS4 is outselling the Xbox One more than 2 to 1. When consoles are otherwise well matched, I'll take the one with objectively higher specs and a better chance at quality exclusives I can't get anywhere else. It's also going to be a bigger difference down the road when the consoles are getting stretched even more in terms of resources, the PS4 has more to give.

I'll take the one with the better controller and online community. The latter, of course, makes it a herd mentality, but it's 100% about having that "critical mass."

Microsoft screwed a lot up. I don't think the slightly weaker specs were truly what damned it. I think the Kinect, the TV functionality, and the all around hubris damned it. The PS3 was a more powerful machine, but the hubris around its launch damned it, too, to the point that it rarely got to show off that it was more powerful because everyone was developing to the 360 and porting. But, the year of launch, no one knew this would happen and the 360 still crushed it.

Found one! (And it's barely noticeable)

Xbox One vs PS4 Advanced Warfare

I have a real hard time seeing the difference, I think I see it in some shots but the lighting is slightly darker on the Xbox One version capture so it could just be my imagination.

There are a few shots taht seem slightly better on the ps4 but nothing that jumps out. Without these side by side video's I doubt anyone will notice.

I did notice some differences with lighting though, in one shot the xbox light would change on the gun so it was illuminated one second then it'd go black or very dark then back. Like it wasn't able to change the intensity of the lighting on the side of the gun but it could turn it on and off. On the PS4 the lighting on the side was just slowly changing the whole time like you'd expect from a fire. (a burning crate was the light source) That might be more of a bug than an actual graphical choice though.

I would say the ps4 looked better in a lot of shots but it was hard to see without having them side by side.

PS4 is absolutely sharper, but you're right. No one is looking at these side to side. You put these on a 40"-60" TV and sit 5 to 12 feet away and you'll struggle to tell the difference even side by side. But no one goes side to side. People have one device and probably one copy of the game. Functionally, there's little difference.

I'd argue few people care, either. There's a segment of gamer that thinks that FPS and Resolution are absolute yardsticks that make or break a system/game. But I'd wager that's a very small segment. The Xbone was done in more by Microsoft being stupid and focusing on bullshit that didn't work well and no one wanted, not because it's running at a lower resolution. If that was what mattered, consoles would all be DOA and everyone would be gaming on PCs. Estimates are that 20 million next-gen consoles have been sold in the past year. Given that there's really nothing to do with them, that's not bad.

From the Polygon review:

Polygon attended a review event for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare held by publisher Activision at the Cavallo Point resort in Sausalito, California, from Oct. 20 through Oct. 22. Per Polygon's ethics policy, we paid for our accommodations for the duration of our time at the event.
I
Wow... I'm... stunned, actually. Someone listened and realized that having everything paid for means your opinion is also bought and paid for and thus essentially worthless. I applaud this move. Kudos, Polygon.

I know they claim that this has always been their policy but that's BS. This is something new. Could it be that GG actually accomplished something?

Calling this out is new.
But the policy has been around since 2012

So, GG has managed to convince Polygon to mention this upfront in reviews. But it is absolutely, 100% not a new policy of theirs.

He's wrong, but not wrong. Ghosts seems to be general consensus the worst CoD.
I haven't played any of the Treyarch, so I don't know, but I'll stand by Ghosts having the best single player of the Infinity Ward games, far and away. Far and away. Unquestionably light years better than the MW single player.
But, when you finish that after 6.5 hours, you're left with horrible multiplayer.

A Persistent Universe experience. I'm a stealthy, solo player. I find a wrecked ship, i know scavengers will be around soon. I find a crate and put myself in it. I let the scavengers take the crate and put me in their ship. When i'm on their ship, some time later, i get out of the crate. Very quietly, i rummage around and find some goodies i like. I steal those... now i can either - A) Jump out the airlock and call a ride or B) go to their engine room and self destruct their ship or C) quietly hunt and execute the entire staff and take their ship.... or Z) they could have scanned the crate properly before loading it, blasted it with their ship and me with it....

Oh joy. Just what I want to do. Hide in a fucking crate for 2-3 hours until a scavenger party comes along on the off chance that they don't scan the cargo.

I don't see the problem. I'd just pull out my phone and play Candy Crush for a few hours while I waited.

Pfft, you play Candy Crush on your phone? N00b!
Real men play Candy Crush on their triple-SLI PC rig. 5K graphics with full anti-aliasing at 5000FPS!

That's disappointing.
Both sides need to stop doing this. Throw this idiot out. Throw Adam Baldwin, Milo, Christine Hoff Sommers, and all the feminism-haters out. Throw anyone that's either never discussed video games or only discussed from the exact agenda they're taking on Gamergate out. Too many only discussing this thing because they care about something other than games, on both sides.

Except both sides aren't doing it. Baldwin hasn't been doing anything except making comments on his own. Milo is reporting on events that are newsworthy. Sommers is making statements based on her experience as a feminist in the traditional sense, not a 3rd wave authoritarian feminist.

And yet the anti-side is the one that keeps bringing up the studies, making it about various individuals who have no actual claim on the issue and so on. What's pathetic is that this is a play right out of the old marxist playbook, that being "relegating those you find against your ideology to 'mentally unsound.'" Yeah, people have seen this shit before.

Oh and then there these assholes. That's an editor of Mother Jones.

You really don't believe both sides are doing it?
That's part of the problem. How many Gamergaters refuse to admit there's been any kind of idiocy or wrong-doing on the part of gamergate?

Change the damn name already.

But this is conspiracy theory stuff. With absolutely zero evidence other than "I don't think he's telling the truth about it being low quality," you're saying "Bethesda is intentionally writing off a multi-million dollar investment because they don't like someone."

This is something that happens in movies, not in real life. Bethesda is not putting a game in a closet because they think someone at Human Head needs to wear more deodorant.

And, frankly, Prey was a pretty bad game. Not on ACM/DNF level, but it wasn't particularly good. The newest Batman was a big disappointment. Dead Man's Hand is a 62 on Metacritic. It isn't as if Human Head has some great history of fantastic releases, and Prey 2 seems to be the biggest risk they took.

It not being particularly fun and, at this point, not seemingly able to be very fun without an enormous amount of work seems far more likely than "Whelp, let's write-off the $20 million we spent to develop this game, Mark in Accounting called me a jerk so we'll show him!"
Wow, you are really taking this to extremes, aren't you. If you think, companies refusing to do business due to grudges is only the stuff of movies and fantasies don't let me get in your way. Not to mention the fact, I never said my "feeling" was based on fact. Does Blue's feelings, have to be fact now too? Or what about you, do your feelings have to be factual, too? Hahaha_no

I've heard many stories about how publisher representatives clash with developers, constantly wanting unreasonable revisions with-in unreasonable time frames or completely changing the foundations of the original design. These are reasonably factual probabilities, without me needing to be in every meeting and witnessing them in person.

It's also factual to most people Human Head games don't suck. They are the creative minds behind some pretty good games (maybe not your taste) Heretic, Hexen, Hexen II, Heretic II, Rune and Prey.

Hopefully Mark in accounting can do the numbers. Giggle

No, you aren't talking about them being unwilling to do business. They already did business! The game was made, with Bethesda doing most of the financing. Which means the business was done.

Your feeling doesn't need to be based on fact, you said it as if it was, but it's a conspiracy theory.

Yes, publishers clash with devs and want changes. This is true, but this has NOTHING to do with your post. But they don't pull games that they've already paid for simply because they do not like someone. That does not happen.

You aren't saying "the publisher had unreasonable demands" what you said was "Bethesda is willing to let an investment of probably $20 million dollars go because they did not like someone."

That doesn't happen. I'm going to repeat that again: publishers do not cancel good, playable, complete games that they've sunk 8 figures into simply because they do not like someone.

You are so right, man. What it feels like to me is bethesda has "unjustified" personal issues with Human Head or someone at Human Head.

Wait. You think they wouldn't cancel a game because it was bad, but would because of "unjustified" personal issues with someone at Human Head?

Bethesda would not lose millions of dollars for personal issues, "unjustified" or not.
They would lose millions of dollars rather than putting out an Alien Colonial Marines or Duke Nukem Forever, as those are the kinds of things that really stick with your reputation.
But doesn't your position rely on it being a bad game on the level of ACM or DNF, which none of Human Heads games have been. Afai can tell, there's no reason to believe it's the case. There's no way I would take the word of someone who was hired to be a PR spin doctor, who's been feeding gamers false info about "game quality", since the Pre-Oblivion days.

It's hard to fault her on blaming the Seattle shooting on misogyny. Early reports, and the twitter feeds of those involved, make it look like he killed a girl because she wouldn't be with him.

Wha..? Seriously, Jesus Beamer you really go off on the deep end with this issue over and over again. Hating/Loving ONE person (for whatever reason) is hardly hating all womankind. A mentally ill person is NOT a misogyinst. Its not a fucking disease, nor is it a mental condition. Its prejudice, pure and simple. A jelaous rage is not misogyny. You are doing a disservice to all reasonable people (including feminists) by obsfucating the issue with bullshit like this!

No.
Sorry.
Again, feeling that a women belongs to you is misogyny. Do you ever see a woman kill a man because she feels that not belonging to her is worthy of death? No. But you see men do it. You see laws that literally tell men that their wives bodies belong to them.

Again, misogyny isn't "hatred," much like homophobia isn't hatred. It's prejudice. And believing a woman belongs to you is prejudice against women. It's feeling that you have some ownership.

Here's an interesting article that explains how it's misogyny and says his actions were due to the unfair pressure men feel due to the decline of the patriarchy.

I mean, isn't it certainly possible he was both mentally unwell and reacting to a certain institutionalized misogyny that tells men that they deserve women? That, particularly when this guy was homecoming king, he deserves the woman of his choice? How many times have you seen a teen movie in which the homecoming king is ever, ever denied a female?
And speaking of ownership, how many movies have you seen in which two men see a girl and spend the movie fighting over which gets to be with her? Fairly common theme in movies, men fighting over who gets to be with a woman. Who deserves her more. Rarely do they actually take the woman's opinion into account. This is pretty much how men go through society - feeling as if they can just "prove" themselves. Has anyone here really had relationships that were series of them proving themselves? Nope, but Hollywood repeatedly tells young boys this is how you get women. It's on the decline - that Chris Pine movie about it failed miserably and was called creepy, but it's still a fairly common thing.
And that, despite me knowing you'll fight against it, is misogyny.

No matter how right you are, it doesn't matter. Squirmer is right. You lost. Anita played the game better than you did. She "won" even if her fairly radical agenda is too extreme for most people. She became the spokesperson fighting against sexism in gaming, an industry with revenues in the 10s of billions. The mainstream media picked it up, and her along with it. This week: NYTimes, Colbert. Next week: Charlie Rose? CNN? And who do you have? Angry Joe? Yahtzee? No matter how you look at it, it's a total disaster.

Anita Sarkeesian isn't the enemy. Or, at least she's not my enemy. The enemy are unrepentant, biased, and bullshit press outlets. Gamergate gives her a boost, but she's never come out in defense of gaming journalism. Why would she? She's not even a gamer. She doesn't know anything about those sites or the issues involved there.

The conversation is just now starting to get back to where it was supposed to be, ethics in game journalism. The gaming press is running out of "victims" to distract everyone with. The moderates in Gamergate have been contacting advertisers, arranging interviews with the more reasonable people in the gaming press on the subject of ethics in journalism, etc. Basically they've just been waiting for the distraction engine to run out of fuel, which is happening. Anita Sarkeesian has already moved on to mainstream press which don't even cover games, so she's effectively a non-issue. Her increased profile is actually really good for gamers because she can move on to something more interesting to her than games.

What braindead trolls like Squirmer and Beamer never seemed to understand is that there wasn't just one conflict here and two sides. You had Anita/Feminists vs. Trolls on the Internet, and Gamergate vs. gaming press and associated shills. That first conflict is dying down, but the Gamergate hashtag overall has shown no signs of slowing down, and we're just starting to see an increase in coverage regarding the ethics issue.

In short, the idiots co-opting the argument for their own platforms and agendas are moving on, and Gamergate is actually starting to be about Gamergate again and not endless stupid distractions. Our own local Blue's News idiots will continue to try and push the feminism angle for a while until they get bored. But in the places where it matters, things are finally starting to look up. I'm really glad the conversation is slowly getting back on track.

At the end of the day, Anita Sarkeesian wins, Gamergate wins, gaming press loses.

You need a new hashtag/name if these are the things you believe.

Hah. I can only think of one topic in recent memory I've disagreed with you on, so really that's the exception rather than the rule. You seem to avoid the trap of unwarranted and/or premature hating on anything and everything more than most people around here. And you're not a hit-and-run poster who will post something completely asinine and then vanish before reading any possible disagreement. Not saying I don't think you ever post anything asinine, but you stick around and discuss at the very least.

Hahahahah. Priceless. Not only is Gamergate simply a bunch of goons issuing rape and death threats, but violent video games made them do it.

That's disappointing.
Both sides need to stop doing this. Throw this idiot out. Throw Adam Baldwin, Milo, Christine Hoff Sommers, and all the feminism-haters out. Throw anyone that's either never discussed video games or only discussed from the exact agenda they're taking on Gamergate out. Too many only discussing this thing because they care about something other than games, on both sides.

Aww man. So long as its bad content, not bad qa, just release it on steam for 4.99. Bethesda gets some money back and we get to see what failed, with the knowledge its a sub par product and priced as such.
