What I find interesting is that a High school kid in the 80's not only understood wireless communication between various primitive devices and their control but could also code the whole thing on a relatively new system architecture and language.
What i find interesting is the estimated costs of replacing this old system. Between $1.5 and 2 million? Wtf? They just have to replace the control system, not the entire AC in every building!

Hasn't Uwe Boll made himself enough money to fund his own terrible films?
Why should he use his own money, when he can use the money of someone else?

When are developers going to stop expecting the worst from their customers? First piracy, and now this.
Sometimes because they absolutely would do the same. Expecting the worst from all of your customers mostly has its roots in a paranoic state of mind, assuming that everyone is out to get you! EVERYONE!! ONLY YOU!!!! ARGHLLLLL!

It almost looks too good to the point that I worry about their budget supporting it.
They are not making an open world game. Confined, small levels and dungeons. Not vast areas which have to be filled to be at least slightly interesting. They could use all the power modern graphic engines give them and still use only a fraction of the budget a game like Fallout 4 needs. Just look at Hawken. Gorgeous, stunning levels and art design, created by a small team with the UDK3 on a small budget in only a year.

So, 11 mio. unit sold of Bioshock Infinite.

How expensive was that game, when 11 mio. units are not enough to prevent the closure of Irrational?

There are a few exceptions, like the Borg ships or maybe the Sulaco, but usually space ships are designs that don't take the 3D nature of space in mind.
Its because the designers of those ship think only in two dimensions. How many shooters do you know with explicit vertical level design? Not many, because most gamers do not like levels, where they are forced to look up or down.

We are children of the savanna. Our ancestors developed in the vast planes of ancient africa. We humans prefer flat

How do you "reboot" a game series, which has no storyline, no narration, no "lore" and no tradition whatsoever? Everything you can do with arcade racing games has already been done with NfS over the years. What's there to reboot i wonder?

Or, silly me, maybe i took some stupid marketing blurb too serious

50/50 it goes Take-Two's way.
50/50? 0/100 concerning Take2 wishes. They cannot prevent a movie about GTA. They cannot prevent the movie using footage from the game. They cannot even prevent a movie about GTA, if GTA would have never been released. They just cant. They do not have the right to do so.

Nope. Wrong. I don't understand. Plenty of games out there that are PC only and do/did extremely well. Wasteland 2 for example. And tons of other indie games.
No, you are right. You dont have to understand. But ...

inXile is a privately held indie studio. They do not need to go BIG. They are, like Larian, just fine in making a decent profit. CDP on the other hand, is publicly traded company. They have to report to investors who are only interested in a fast return of their investment. Therefore CDP has to produce a big multi-platform AAA game, because thats the way to make big money in a short term. CDP was (!) an indie game developer.

Yeah, some people need to get over their entitled bullshit egos.
Where is entitlement? The game was announced using a specific look, which they couldnt deliver on the PC simultaneously with the console releases. But instead of informing their customers they said nothing and advertised with the old media. Where is this entitlement you speak of?

It's not like the bait and swtich of Aliens: Colonial Marines, far from it.
No, its not. And its not the point.

I wonder if The Witcher 3: Enhanced Edition will be DX12.
Probably. Traditionally (if you want to call two games of a series a tradition) i'll buy Witcher games when the Enhanced Edition is released. Served me well in the past, will serve me well in the future.

... but note that without the console editions, the game wouldn't exist at all.
This everyone does understand. Higher production costs make it necessary to widen the audience.

And yes, it is understandable, that a studio can be overwhelmed with the task to release specialised versions of the game for three different platforms at once. And therefore cuts have to be made. That is OK!

NOT OK is it to lie to your customers. To withhold this information, hoping that no one will notice, pretend that everything goes smoothly as planned and STILL ADVERTISE the game with media showing the old build. This is not ok!

Banning does not improve online gaming.
Banning cheaters to me in a game is an improvement.
And thats the problem. Instead of fixing bugs, companies just ban someone. Its cheap, it makes you feel good and it does not change a thing.

Not that I care too much but its good to see cheating scun gets bans.
Yeah, it does always feel good, when some cheater is getting banned, doesn't it ... but its utter and complete bullshit!

Banning does not improve online gaming. Fixing bugs and memory leaks does improve online gaming, not this crap. But this does cost money, so the devs and the publishers go the easy way. Catering to the righteous anger of the "honest" player, so nobody will notice that they do shit to fix security holes which are responsible for allowing cheats in the first place.

So, sure, it's their decision. It's my decision to complain about it. Trust me, those console gamers pay 60 dollars happily. Every time. Somehow.
No. They dont. A lot of them buy second hand games. In fact, so many console gamers do that, that Gamestop was able to restructure their business model around that.

I get it that you probably like TW3, i get that But your emotional connection blinds you. There are WAY more people who dont give a shit about this game at all. What are they to you?

I know you're just kidding, but people with that attitude.. with that "I'll buy it when it's complete and it's in the bargain bin for 5 dollars" are truly worse than pirates.
Its their money, its their descision how they spend their money. You dont have a say in that. And no, they are not boycotting anything. They just dont feel that 50 bucks are justified. I dont feel that 200-300 bucks are justified for a smartphone. I buy used smartphones. My money, my descision.
