News Comments > Peter Molyneux Hitting The Trail
1. Re: Peter Molyneux Hitting The Trail Dec 2, 2014, 10:14 HorrorScope
 
"Molyneux, who was criticized for development decisions that were not included in Godus's original Kickstarter pitch, concedes that there is a danger of overselling projects on crowdsourcing platforms before there is anything tangible to show."

Pot, kettle. Now he blames Kickstarter for overselling, dude you do it for every game for the past 15 or so years, kickstarter or not.

Sony's H1Z1 or whatever it was, sounded like it was around the corner many months back and still little. I am excited to see what larger dev teams can do with this genre.

Big Password mistake:

"How does a hacker get hold of your password? Most likely, through a breach of a customer database like the one that recently let criminals obtain confidential celebrity photos from Apple’s iCloud. "


Right and once they get the db it doesn't matter what you have, it will be cracked, they have unlimited cracks at it with cracking software, doing 100's of attempts a second.

Now if you stay away from brain dead passwords and if they don't steal the entire DB. They only have so many chances before the account will be put on hold for additional verification. So it has imo been a fairly murky education of passwords and the realities to the masses, we are making changes to things that are really being broken a whole 'nother way.

The reality is once the get the db in hand, it doesn't matter if that password is "This!sMyPassword" or "ng031u$T%$T%Gdfdsf", it will be hacked. Now someone trying to break in through the front door, might have 10-20 attempts before locked out, but lets say they have 1000 tries, they will never get to "This!sMyPassword" in 1000 attempts.

For 1 million you can buy exclusive rights to the pet name Chewbacca, comes with the exclusive knickname of "Chewy" as well to make it a bargain.

I'm kind of tempted to pick up Shadows of Mordor since it's only $20 there...

Yeah jumped on that for $20 at Amazon.
And $25 for Alien Iso... done.
They have the new Borderland for $30, twitching on that.
Might do Wolfenstein for $20 on Steam, seeing if there is a better price, may wait til Christmas.

knowing this crowd, the game is probably awesome and the graphics great.

The people at blues are the worst gamers on the planet. If you could actually call them gamers. you guys are more like amateur trolls from some youtube comedy channel.

Go buy it then Ace.

Pretty much nothing is true 1080p on the Xbox One so who cares?

I do, not because it's not 1080p, because it doesn't have the balls to handle 1080p.

Right, read up. There is plenty of warning to those that take 5 minutes to see a red flag that may tell them to wait a good while. $45 is no cheap entry either.

To say this is another Godus, well at least this game attempted to do something interesting, instead of a casual light weight game hoping to strike gold. The lure of casual apps.

That said, this looks like poop, it isn't even an Alpha by their description which sort of already goes against the latest revisions to the Steam EA guideline. I'd have to check all the pages through purchasing that it also is as clear as the new guidelines say they should be.

On top of that episodes, a name few pc gamers want to hear, we know what that all brings. So it's up to you? Are you smart or stupid? Do you blindly just buy things or not? So if someone just hit Add to Cart and buys it without reading even just a little, that is on them, not the EA process.

I like EA, there have been several that were in very solid places when entering EA that I've enjoyed a lot. Some games aren't finished/made without it. Don't spend your lunch money.

" There will be absolutely no embargo on any type of coverage once the game is available for sale." - Is that even a possibility? Have an embargo after a release.

The range of cards benchmarked for DA:I was very good and I was happy to see a very diverse field of CPUs, as well.

Continues to show even a mid-range i5 is keeping up with much costlier i7's. For $300 you can get a good i5, mb and 8 gigs and be right in the game proc wise.

A new Spellforce game that uses a modern engine would be interesting. To me anyway.

But knowing this series it will be the same engine with less features.

Interesting, I have not had fun in games for over a decade.... Maybe he's on to something that you casuals don't understand???

Way to ride it out... no enjoyment for 10 years, I would have checked out a long time ago.

But right, he's going to learn a lesson or we're going to be able to update our skepticism meters. History shows it is too ambitious, but perhaps he has a better vision, better management and better staff and will change video game making for all.

We all hope so, but to come here and say "casuals don't understand?", can be turned around to be "the old dogs understand it's a pipe dream, heard it before again and again. The casual fan just jumps on anything good they hear, seen it dozens of times."

In the immortal words of Starsky:
Dew it!

He does it, he can easily have his day of... "We have delivered on most of what we said, they said we couldn't do it, but we did!"

I'm not even looking forward to the space sim part any more, I want this state of the art FPS game.
