News Comments > Batman Arkham Knight Release Announcement
21. Re: Batman Arkham Knight Release Announcement Jun 23, 2015, 19:06 HorrorScope
 
Warner Bros marketing Executive Ryan Moore has allegedly called PC gamers “a bunch of babies” because of the numerous complaints about the issues with the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight on video game forum NeoGAF.

User TheMadMan007 posted earlier today: “Man everyone in here is a bunch of babies… Look, every game released now is going to have problems the day of launch. If you can’t troubleshoot or can’t deal with having a few issues here or there, you should probably just wait until about a week from now and a few patches will be out and all these little problems will be fixed.”

This made the another user look into the details on TheMadMan007’s user profile, which lists their Xbox Live name, real name and location, all of which associates perfectly with one Ryan Moore, who according to LinkedIn is the executive director of marketing, unscripted & alternative television at the Warner Bros Entertainment Group.


This is always a loser move, he better be untouchable, otherwise he's out soon.

"WBGames is working with the PC developer IronGalaxy to address the issues ASAP. Rocksteady will provide any support to get this resolved."

"Now we are starting to get a clearer picture of where things went wrong on the development side. Not only did Rocksteady not have a hand in the PC version but development was outsourced to a small studio made up of just twelve people."


IMO this shit isn't getting fixed.

Would it really hurt them that much to have three total SKUs?
1. Expansion plus Base game for 49.99
2. Expansion only for 39.99
3. Keep base game SKU active at 14.99

I've been mildly paying attention to this, but your #3. to me alludes to if I don't buy the expansion GW 2 the base game no longer works?

As for refunding people that bought it recently, that seems pretty fair.

Never really was bothered by the interface because there were great things out there like MTUI. Best mod ever made for a Gamebryo game.

They don't come out immediately and then you are back into an EA situation. Play with the limited shitty one today, or wait months for the mod and then play. Winner, those that wait, then it goes back to the other post about getting a game at a discount later.

Games like D:OS, WL2, Pillars, Witcher 3, DA:I... all still being patched up both polish and new features. Winner, those who wait.

There will be graphics mods on the PC version within a month that vastly out-strip the games base graphics anyway.

Sure. You'd think though with their coffers, that they would review major mods and focus on adding these types of things out of box.

If they have a low baseline then people with older or cheaper PCs can still play and everyone else can mod.


Get that but they do have graphics options already, just crank the high-end higher and we'll find our happy spots. Sort of silly because we know what people are going to go with the gfx mods already, why don't they just jump to the end now and do it for us?

It's not no one listened so much as no one cares. You're in charge of a Fortune 1000 company. You can invest 10s of millions of dollars into IT security and serve your customers, or you can take that as bonus for yourself because fuck everyone and everything else. What you do think the average executive is going to choose, hmm?

Well in this case they are probably right taking the money, because even paying that to IT, there are still holes, there will always be holes with what they are using.

I never criticized the performance in Bethesda's games. I did complain about their beyond atrocious interface. I dare say it's the worst AAA interface I've ever used. It seems like Fallout 4 will keep Fallout 3's interface. Yay for 5 items displayed at once, with no stats, in an endless list you need to scroll one by one.

Agreed. If they need to improve on anything it is the PC interface.

That why I smirk when something is still labelled "national security threat" and internet security is ignored. To big to fail, but give it up on trivial shit, when you have this whole the size of the Seattle.

Sadly, I know people who don't blink at spending $500 for a 3d card but who won't spend a dime on an OS, even though the OS is what gives their games and gaming hardware some value. Go figure...;)

Right, they way they look at it, if they could get the HW for free, they would do that as well.

I do know one person close enough to me that won't buy anything MS anymore, doesn't need anything of theirs but the O/S, since most software they use runs under it.

Why do they do this? Because when GFWL was starting up, they needed to buy some points first to buy a game with said points. In GFWL on a PC they went to buy points for the game, they found out they bought X-Box points instead, they don't own a X-Box, GFWL poor re-directing design the culprit. They called MS and they wouldn't refund, there was nothing they could say and that balance would still sits there today. The company had no problem fooling someone and taking $10 for a product they were planning on buying from them, that can be looked at as stealing, really poor ethics for certain.

They swore they'd never buy from them again. So there's one story, right or wrong. I do live by the "who made who" rule, the issue started with their bad software and not refunding an honest mistake, the rest is reactionary from the the original sin. If I recall correctly they told them that square on the phone after it was established they were shit out of luck, something like "Your idiots, now I'm going to get way more out of you then the $10 you took from me". They did.

Right, wrong, whatever, their story.

Otherwise, I do agree buying an O/S every many years is a solid value.

A quick interjection...people are constantly befuddled by the relationship between governments & taxes because they naively believe that government is efficient in spending tax dollars. Tax breaks are good because they give government less money to throw away...

Just this far in I see...

1. Who really thinks in any meaningful % that gov't is efficient at spending tax dollars?

2. Money isn't thrown away, it recycles, if they are over-spending, that means some people are getting more than they should, those people still buy things and it recirculates over and over.

It seems with tax breaks, the issue I see is state vs state, city vs city pitting. If it were just one set rate, that takes leverage out of the equation for business. If that were the steadfast rule business would spring up from those constraints and they'd deal with that and price product accordingly. That is one issue of states and Providences it's like many mini-countries, hard to do business with. The other is one unified country, where one rule fits all. The scare there is dictatorship.

This world can only be so good... your time here is dwindling, enjoy.

Every market of size has the low-end the middle and the top. The low-end goes for cheap high volume, all day, all the time. The high-end never discounts and sells less, tries to add presitge. The middle goes through a progression of start at one point and run sales. This is nothing new, this guy wants to think he's high end, it is all great if you have a product for that. Otherwise the market bears what it does and what is happening makes all the sense in the world. A glutton of new games doesn't help either and there is no shortage of games right now.

I'm sure it has been said, I've bought a lot of under $10 games and haven't played them and won't play several. That is better than zero dollars you would have from me at $20+. I do it for throwing a bone to a developer or genre I like and a game that probably is pretty good, it's call support. There are stats that can be run from their side to see this as well, games bought with less than 2 hours.

This dude can do whatever he thinks is right, the market will speak, if he's a higher cost than the game is good, he'll most likely learn a thing or two.

You think sales #'s are low now? Keep all the prices high and then you'll see what really low numbers are for most. It is tough right now simply because there are so many.

If you are still buying EA and doubly if it's survival, you can stop your bitching of EA and another survival game. You like them, face it.

Ark sounds a lot like where 7D2D was and perhaps still is. About a year ago they were around $15 million in revenue. Game has been fun for a long time, developer keeps redoing/adding. Someday it will be done, I hope I'm still interested then. I'm sure at finish it will have a few different play modes, but ultimately I'm hoping for something they have now with sort of a State of Decay'ish for their story mode version.

Strange, single player game, released, on sale for $10, got nearly 300% from Kickstarter. The deal is it is out and single player. I'd just let the game sit as-is, you can drop it cheaper as well. Lots of competition though and probably a long story behind this.

Really liked AO back in the day so I downloaded the upgraded engine and took it for a spin. While I don't think graphics are king, this looks like a nasty little troll that someone kicked in the face. To add insult to injury, in order to reminisce with my old characters, Funcom wanted me to hand out $14.99 for a month. Who charges that much anymore? I'm all for rebooting this game, but a graphic update should at least be palatable and the prices should reflect the current market, imo. Good look to them.

Most of the times you can't go back home. $15/mo lol, but that is the price due to those that never moved on, small group paying rent.

TIL...

That there is a mod that meshes FO3 and FNV together, you can play each together, moving between both with the same character, all in-game. Awesome sauce, that is now the best FO3/NV version. Large World and a Story.
