News Comments > Hatred Gets Steam Redlight
39. Re: Hatred Gets Steam Redlight Dec 16, 2014, 01:22 raVen
 
I believe when self-publishing on steam, Valve is taking a share of the burden*. (Postal had already been published brick and mortar wise, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Running_with_Scissors,_Inc. )
Greenlight is still Valve's indie publishing, and they're free to deny people from the program.

If another publisher were to step in and publish the game, I'm fairly sure it would be given a chance at digital sales on Steam. However, I'm also fairly certain that they (The Developer) would have to make some concessions to whichever publisher chose to pick them up. As that's how the publishing game works.


*: As there is less of a physical burden (shipping and distributing physical copies), there is still the Stamp of Approval burden, which I can see this is the case they're trying to make. If another publisher were to step in, it would avert Valve from being responsible for the game being released. (Especially if another publisher decided to just distribute physically, and open up other avenues of distrubution.)

Valve has the right to pull the game from their store. But they shouldn't have.
"Based on what we've seen on Greenlight we would not publish Hatred on Steam. As such we'll be taking it down."

As was with Postal 1 & 2, if they found another publisher willing to publish it they could probably get listed on Steam.

They (Valve) have every right to not publish games they don't want to publish. (From a publishing point of view. They're not banning it from steam.)

Will players without expansions be able to play? I still have my WoW installation on my very old, updated Windows XP Pro SP3 box, from over a decade ago. However, I haven't been updated it for many years. But then I have no time for gaming even reading BN daily. Maybe Christmas break?
It'd probably be faster to download the newer version. Tons of asset changes, and even a new asset format. They've gone on record saying an old disc install is going be less optimal an install than just downloading everything again.
If you've got decent internet speeds, you can get going pretty quickly with the battle.net launcher.

I've been too busy playing wow to comment here.
I'm having a blast, and appreciate the sentiment. on KJ I waited around 21-25 hours in queue over the launch, and took two days off of work. (I played a ton of steamworld dig and Binding of isaac rebirth while I waited, and watched a few movies.)

Original iD is dead.
John Carmack, John Romero, Tom Hall, and Adrian Carmack have nothing to do with the company any longer.
Now it's just an IP horse that Zenimax is going to beat to death.

Hardcore iD fans already know this Zenimax, I for one don't care about your upcoming games.

so many cuts / fades to black, I doubt he did most of those in one run.
I haven't played GTA V yet though... (Probably when it releases on PC or PS4)

This just in: newly invented shoes (leather skins you put on your feet) are a major improvement over how we do things day to day. Hunters claim that people that have had shoes can no longer live a day without shoes!

Comcast should get unplugged from the internet. (More technical terms: All peers should drop all traffic from Comcast.)

Actually, that's probably would it would take to get this bullshit to stop. I'm a Comcast customer, and you know what? I'll go through that pain of no internet at home for a few weeks (months, years) until they get their shit together. Or just switch to a different provider.

If I have to sign in to Facebook for the oculus rift to work: VR=over.
It'll bungle VR so badly that even Morpheous wouldn't take off.

No, Blizzard still needs to provide the PC based customers a D3 offline mode like the consolers got. Could care less about the AH, actually think the Gold AH should have stayed, Real Money Auction House was the problem.
At least I can play Hardcore mode now. The itemization from before made it impossible with the random lag spikes. Now that I have decent enough gear I can take a few hits from lag and still live. [I'd Love for D3 in offline mode. - don't get me wrong]

As for SimCity. I might pick it up now. While I don't prefer Origin, as long as it's not doing it's creepy crawly on my HDs, I don't think it's that bad.

Does no one remember the incidents of Amazon removing books people purchased and downloaded to their Kindles?

It isn't similar to what this situation is (though there are enough posts implying as much), but people shouldn't be surprised at how things play out in an era where the copyright and patent systems, which were created to foster progress and protect culture for society in general, are used as weapons by corporations to exclude people from accessing the very culture they are supposed to have a right to.

And again, this is different because NO ONE had games removed from libraries.

There are still consumer protections in place on digital media.
