News Comments > Out of the Blue

Really Bill Belichick explained the pass the best, "it is a goal line play, you have to be ready for anything, I wasn't surprised, that is what we do down there". Meaning, perhaps we shouldn't be so shocked, we are far removed from 70's football. They pass anywhere any time, the NE dude made a fantastic break on the ball, he doesn't and the ball was going right to the WR for 6. Ask Byner, he'll fumble you a ball inside the 5 to lose you a big game. TO's can happen, I would have run it, but we've seen this a lot in today's football. Obviously if it scores, no one really questions it, just another quick slant in side the 5 for 6.

By the way, the Dude who int the ball, he was MVP. That was game, set and match and he could have used the car being a undrafted rookie. Without that play, they lose 3 in a row.

Jesus, idiots gonna preorder sight unseen. >_>

Beg pardon, Willis, but what is it you are talking about? Surely not GTA5. There's no risk there.

Oh yes there is, like anything. We don't know how it will preform technically. Steam won't run out of keys.

So many layoffs these days.

There are a bunch, but is it a down market? I don't think so, there are more games/developers than ever. It is just the bigger boys have a lot more competition to compete, good. They needed the wake up call, it seems many leave with their ideas, execute and make games suits would not consider.

I'd like to think people have enough humanity left to be disgusted with this sort of thing - guess not!

Someday we'll read that a mastermind broke out of prison, from playing this game while in prison. That will be "Now I've heard everything" article of the day.

You can take the gameplay out of a mmo, but you can't take the mmo out of the gameplay. Meaning, imo "same as it ever was". I can read miles of mmo changelogs and wala, still pretty much the same thing in gameplay feel, which to me is the issue.

It's just a really strange stance that they would take now after they were absolutely fine in Dead Island. Now, they're using the DMCA to have all mods pulled. I should be allowed to disable film grain and the more advanced graphics features if they can yield more performance with minimal visual changes which is what those tools were used for.

What's lame is that multiplayer is already a wreck because the 'Be the Zombie' mode allows the Hunter to be seen from the players survival sense which often has the Hunter become the hunted. There's no edge in increasing or decreasing any of the visual effects because you spam Q and it's game over for the Hunter who has to scream to give away his position to find the player.

...and that's IF the player being invaded doesn't just disconnect from the game.

You make it sound like the Hunter can join a coop game, however I heard others say it is a PvP mode. Can you clarify? Thanks

its not that its *impossible*, its just not super practical or necessary, or even very desirable for most people

If it can be done as well as we can think, it is desirable, not necessarily how this game was done, but I can see it would be cool if it was all that.

The youtube videos to me show he took what Dragon offered and did zero to clean it up to make sense to the game, zero. What Mack was saying is shit I've played with 5 years ago as a party gag, same exact results.

My take?

If a game took over $20,000,000, has been around for 9 months, and I never heard of it till now (and likely most of you), then either they were completely inept at getting the word out, or there's some untruths going on...

I think reading it he means the NLU engine not designed by him, cost 20 million to make (doesn't mean crap then imo), but he says he probably has 2-3 million in it.

"On the other hand, the lifetime sales of the game to date are about $10K - not even one day of operating costs for us when we were fully staffed (we worked on it for 7 years). The update that we launched last Friday cost about $460,000 to develop"

Yeah they really sounds like a total wipe.

There's potential here. Imagine Skyrim with conversations being naturally spoken, interpreted, and answered by the AI instead of conversation trees.

IMO the big boys should be working on it, like VR, this is another avenue to move forward. I guess they are still making too much money to care on advancement, so we become more jaded.

wait, are you saying the way people regard money is creating some sort of problem?

I wasn't going that route, just saying we don't see new areas because I guess they are making enough. If/when the well dries up, do we see more advancement? Don't know.

When did CA become just a desert?

Since the drought.

Hey it doesn't rain in the spring/summer/most of fall drought or not. We have 3 months where we have a shot at rain, no matter good or bad.

From a civilian side of it, it seems the same. Boaters, perhaps different. Those in water treatment, perhaps different. But it is called the golden state for a reason. It is only green out here Nov-Mar, but I link sand when I think desert. Could be different defs.

Wow, this is a new level yet, they can label something "unsafe goods" and since it is a black-market they could be bad people, they could even be terrorists. So now we do it in the name of Homeland Security. This is NAZI shit here. I get going after them, but how they sell it and it being homeland security, yeah, uh huh.

however I remember the devs stating that initially ATS will be limited to California, Arizona and New Mexico.

Well that sucks. I mean, California looks great, but I want more than just the fucking desert to drive in.

I'll wait until they release all of the USA then, which judging by their European map's speed might not be until roughly 2020...


When did CA become just a desert? You have the sierra's, SF, napa, redwoods up north, LA. Now AZ and NM fits the bill like that bit more. Back to Truckin.

As we advocate around here, read and teach yourself. Starting at a young age the saying "If it is too good to be true" applies here. If you get burnt, it is simply another lesson in life, as bad as this is, it didn't cost you that much for a lesson, in fact you got a discounted lesson charge, right?
Actually, no. TrustPilot shows G2A and Kinguin to be reputable websites. Consumers have no reason to suspect trouble. It's like credit card breaches at Target and Chick-fil-A, consumers have no reason to suspect any issues when paying by card.

The issue here is that Ubisoft is shifting the burden. Rather than accepting the loss and taking action to prevent credit card fraud it simply deactivates games and screws over consumers who thought they had bought a legitimate version. Consumers have no way of knowing what goes on behind the scenes - all they see is Ubisoft fucking them over.

Really it is the banks who should be held responsible. If a purchase is made using a stolen credit card then the bank should be responsible for the charges made, which would incentivise them to improve security.

I've always known inside when I go somewhere just to buy a key and it is discounted the way they are, flags are raised. So if one got burnt here learn, one of the cheaper lessons you'll learn.

If it were heaven, then I would totally lean a different view, but you have to know your surroundings.
