News Comments > Ubisoft Financials

A 32% increase in digital segment revenues, which climbed to €195 million, led by digital distribution and sales of additional content (items and DLC). This segment accounted for 19% of the Group’s total sales in 2013-14.

That's good that we will see more Digital Distribution as it is the future, but bad as it means more DLC. I'm not against DLC in theory, but in practice it has largely proven to be of dubious value.

If this was a one-man indie project from a new studio that would still be a bad trailer because it tells us nothing about the game. I like boobies and all, but I have online educational videos for that. I would like some "game" in my game.

UPDATE: Cevat announces games are already pirated.


You forgot his forecast of 99 billion sales that will be leeched because of piracy; they will only sell 1 billion because of this.

Bah, graphics; Next-gen, current-gen, last-gen... Once graphics pass my own personal threshold of "good enough", I honestly barely notice them once I start playing.

The Rangers better be buying Lundqvist some nice ass gifts because he kept them from being humiliated while their offense was floundering. But they found their offense again, so LET'S GO RANGERS!!!!! Cheerleading

Green Man Gaming gave me the new XCOM by Firaxis for a $29 pre-order deal, which was a pretty big discount. It took a few months for the game to reach that price again after release iirc. That's about the only reason I'll preorder a game.

Also, I think Prez's Steam account alone is up over 2000.

Well Steam counts games two different ways. In your library list it shows games only - no DLC or expansions unless they are standalone - mine is at 1152 individual games. But added together with expansions and DLC my total items bought off of Steam is around 1900. And yeah, I go outside.

Strangely I'm still very interested in zombie games if they are done well. State of Decay is one of my favorite games of the year so far, and I'm still very interested in Dying Light.

FOX needs to stay out of the Sci-fi business. And the SyFy Channel needs to get back into it...

I remember levels like "The Library" (I think) being a nightmare, with you only knowing if you were going the right way because you had new The Flood to fight, and The Flood sucked.

I actually didn't mind the Flood - I thought it was a cool change of pace - but the library was awful because of of the recycled architectured and textures. It could have been SO much better.

What bothered me about Halo so much was how such a potentially great PC game suffered because of being a console game. The recycled textures (used because of the Xbox's limited memory) were so bad that they had to put arrows on the floor otherwise you wouldn't realize you were heading back the way you came for several minutes because everything looked exactly the same. Otherwise I thought the game was brilliant for its time.

Why be mad at Bungie? They did what any small game company would do when an industry giant waved a massive check in their faces. Microsoft decided to slight PC gamers, not Bungie.

At this point this decision is probably based on the realization that they really aren't relevant in the PC space any longer as much as anything and it would be dicey to try to bring a new property to the PC at this point. If the game is a huge hit on consoles I would expect that it would make it to PC eventually, barring any exclusivity deals I don't know about of course.

News Comments > Star Citizen "Coming Together"
58. Re: Star Citizen Apr 27, 2014, 08:48 Prez
 
Tons of bickering, name-calling, and negativity... must be a Star Citizen thread on Bluesnews!

Seriously though while I can understand the reservations people have, it's definitely worth mentioning that Chris Roberts is NOT Peter Molyneux. He delivers what he promises. From what I've seen the game is coming together pretty nicely. The boring videos notwithstanding (ones that he is only putting out because of the unique situation of needing to deliver a continuous stream of updates because of kickstarter), I really am starting to get the sense that this game, while sure to be somewhat of a mess on release - how can a game this ambitious not be? - is going to end being exactly what he said it would eventually. I'm not completely sold yet, but I am far more optimistic than I was a year ago.

If there's any company that should be looking at crowdsourcing, it's Obsidian.

That's the way I see it too. I disagree with Cutter and CJ.

It's all kind of pointless. These are the shows and episodes you can already buy on DVD. What I really want is the stuff that's currently on TV. Day-of, day-after, week-after... That'd all be fine with me but this is three years. Who cares.

I'm the opposite. I don't start watching a series until there is minimum of 2 seasons completed and the outlook for the show finishing is very good. Unless it's a throwaway comedy with not a whole lot of over-arching plot - like Archer for example - then I may watch it.

I can easily wait a few years before I start watching Game of Thrones, since the likelihood of it getting finished before then is small since the book series isn't even completed.
