News Comments > Metro: Last Light HUD "Fix" Inbound

Honestly, I'm all for configurable settings, but in a game where they built the character model/animations around a specific FOV...I can understand why they can't easily offer a slider.

You can say "they should just make it right", but if they have to actually rework animations for every possible FOV setting....that's unrealistic. They made the decision to go with in-world objects as your HUD, not magic floating indicator bars. That in itself is an impressive amount of effort, as you can SEE the bullets left in your clip. Most games would go for the easy option of an opaque clip and a little counter in the corner, and no one would cry about it. Altering EVERY ANIMATION your character or supporting ones can make simply to allow some players to widen the view is truly absurd. I don't hear people complaining that their real-world car of choice doesn't get wider just because they're fatter. I do think they should offer a demo so people can see what they'd be getting into prior to dropping fifty bucks or so on it.

They're trying something different. I applaud them for it, even if it makes a percentage of their customers ill from it (thank god, I don't have that issue). They're going to offer an option to alter the FOV, but it may not look right. That's fair, and Saluk made a good point that cutscenes should stick to the original FOV. If those cutscenes are in-game and don't pull you out of your location, however, it will also look odd and jarring at the beginning/end of said scenes.

While I prefer my games on PC, I do manage to have realistic expectations from games. I expect them to work, be fairly crash-free, and have proper controls. Expecting titanic changes from the versions aimed at a FAR less finicky crowd is again, absurd.

No one on here likes Justin Bieber, right? He's not going to change. There are millions of people willing to give him money to be what he is, why should he waste ANY part of his time worrying about those who complain about him? He should't. Developers who pay ANY attention to the PC crowd shouldn't be screamed at. Unless, of course, your ACTUAL GOAL is to have no games to play. If everything I presented to someone was scoffed at for something they didn't like, I'd STOP GIVING THEM ANYTHING.

If developers paid any attention to the forums on this site, they'd give up entirely on the platform. I GUARANTEE there isn't ONE SINGLE GODDAMN GAME that's been posted about on here that you guys didn't bitch and moan about over this perceived missing feature or that design decision. PLEASE, post YOUR games you have made, and see how this community treats you. They will shit all over ANYTHING you have made. Even if playing your game CURED CANCER, they'll complain that it didn't have high-res enough textures.
They made a decision to to bow to consoles then expect PC users to 'just deal with it' yet still shell out the same money when they are getting less service. How can you agree with that?

If it is hard to change the FOV because of models then they should not have used those models in the first place! They screwed up. I don't care how hard it is to fix. They dug their own hole and need to make things right.

And you think just because 'Developers who pay ANY attention to the PC crowd' get off scott free? They should not be screamed at? We should be ecstatic like little Timmy because he got something to eat? Gloriously grateful that we even get games? What stupid shit is this? I am to be happy I got something to eat even if its burnt to a crisp toast. SHUT UP AND EAT IT! YOU GOT SOMETHING DIDN'T YOU!

People are bitching because we were not treated like shit before. Now we are for no damned reason. Features that NEED to be part of PC games are being dropped left and right. If we do not voice these issues things will just continue to get worse and worse. You think PC gamers shit on everything? Guess what? We don't. We shit on games when the developers shit on us.

Not when it makes you throw up after 30 min because the developers are lazy or seriously short sighted.

If changing the FOV would break all those things why not at least set the FOV to something well, not stupid?

Unless their point was to keep people like me from enjoying the game for more than 30 min at a time with a 2-3 hour break between sessions so we dont throw up.

Has a Tomb Raider game ever sold Halo 4 type numbers? Diablo 3 was a huge, huge release, and I think it only sold 6 mil out of the gate. They thought Tomb Raider was a game franchise on the level of Diablo? Yeah, their marketing team is smoking something.
Wow. Didn't realize their numbers were that... stupid. Comparing it to D3 really puts things in perspective. No way in hell TR was **EVER** big enough to pull in numbers like D3 did.

News Comments > Jay Wilson: Auction Houses "Really Hurt" Diablo III
13. Re: Jay Wilson: Auctions Houses Mar 29, 2013, 09:35 necrosis
 
His contention that Blizzard thought only a small number of players would use the auction houses is hard to fathom in light of the game's design, which, for a considerable time before a series of balance changes required the very best gear to complete on the highest levels, even though such gear dropped so rarely it was impractical to try to collect it without using the auctions.

Blizzard seems to still fail at understanding this. It was/is easier to farm gold and buy what you needed than farm gear.

Guess I will just sell my copy now with no real DLC coming out... oh wait I bought it on Steam.

Another story driven game with MP shoved into it. I dont think I have ever clicked on the MP part of ME3, another game that could have done without it.

I guess the profit margin is stupid high on MP DLC and there are enough stupid people to buy it.

$2000-3000 for a gaming PC? rly Yerli? I think my desktop was around $500 a couple years ago, and it still runs everything. I suppose the purported high cost of PC gaming is one of the myths that keep console gamers from feeling like chumps, so it lives on.
Remember you needed a "$4000" computer to run that Star Wars Unleashed on PC when it came out. Rolleyes

For anyone who plays FFXI this sounds familiar.

SE always cried "PS2 limitations" when users asked for more inventory space. Something that did not limit PC users which 90% of the people played on by that point.

Big shock! They found some way to give us more space at a later time after having to buy a $10 keybob.

I must be the only guy in the world that has never played Halo. Still have not forgiven Bungie for selling out to Microsoft, or Microsoft for making it XBox-exclusive and then using it to market Vista. They can kiss my undead sorceror's ass.

The Master Chief is just a corporate symbol used by idiots in suits to sell things. If the products were any good, they wouldn't need it.

I've never played it. I don't own a console, and never bought it for PC.

Interestingly, a few months ago, my wife came upon a shrink-wrapped Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS at Goodwill. It has bundled some pretty awesome games: Jedi Knight Academy, Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness, Rainbow Six 3, Splinter Cell, and the original Halo. So, I may get around to it at some point.
Wow. Thats... wow. Damn thats a good set of games.

I love how no one has reported that in the US the only way to get the new Tomb Raider is digital download. There will be no physical copies.
