Man, was GMG's sale ever lame. That really surprised me how lame it was.
Cutter, I can't remember the last time I saw anything positive come from you.


He actually liked some game earlier this week, true story!

And when mom runs his bath with just the right temperature. He likes that a lot.

Perhaps too many failed Kickstarters will teach us why traditional game development is run by bean counting MBA grads.

The backers are the publishers. This is a company approaching it's publisher and saying "hey this is where we're at, we need more time/funding". If the title is looking good the publisher will probably grant extra time/funding but require much closer involvement. With kickstarters the titles should be good, we know roughly what we're getting from the pitch. But if that title is crap, well unlike a publisher who has a contract with the developer he can't cut his losses and release or easily cancel, sue for breach of contract etc. We ultimately don't have that much power. This is a gamble.

If a kickstarter get's to the point of being funded initially one would hope it's already worth potentially kicking in some more cash.

I'm getting a strange lag with this game. It's running smoothly but it seems to be moving at 0.8x

Perhaps a vsync thing. It's odd. Never seen that before in a title.

I've also had some crashes.

This still looks like a COH expansion to me. Some of the reviews I've read confirm this. But I really didn't need reviews to know that. It was so obviously clear from the very first screenshots. Are PC gamers really happy to settle for the same engine and gameplay dressed up as a sequel at full price?

It's been 7 years since COH 1's release.

What about physics? In Arma 2 the vehicle physics were total crap...
Physx is now partly incorporated into the engine. Vehicle physics are largely the same though but things seem a little more natural. Ragdoll physics are finally in an ArmA title, less canned deaths. On the whole the physics are improved.

From what I saw, the newest footage of Day Z looks very unpolished. I thought going retail would change that, but alas, not so much.
It's a BIS game

I wouldn't give most of them a second glance. Those were the best of show? Cereal? Man, I'd hate to see the worst. Still, good to see how the major publishers are taking the issue of sexism in the industry so seriously. Nope, no hypocrisy going on as far as I can see.

You wouldn't give them a second glance and they're "cereal" then go onto lecture the games industry about sexism. A classic cutter post

I can barely play Grid 2 because of the Bro who is always telling me what to do. I long for simple menu --> quickrace --> play. Rather than menu --> yo bro blah blah blah --> pointless title text --> wasup blah blah blah --> quick race blah blah blah --> blah blah blah --> blah --> play.

Death penalty needs to come back with a vengeance. Do it like China. Drag them out back of the courthouse after the trial, shoot them, bill the family, dump the body in a landfill.

Like the Chinese do, right Cutter?

Hey, no one is talking about questionable convictions here. We're talking about absolute proof and/or confessions. I'll fucking shoot them myself. Ever had someone close to you murdered? I have, and I have zero fucking sympathy. In fact I have righteous anger that they're sitting around breathing and living on the taxpayer's dime all for the sake of assholes who get their panties in a twist thinking that even the most monstrous criminals deserve to live. Let the punishment fit the crime. Take a life, lose yours. Period.

Internet tough guy. Real life fatty?

He got paid in the games industry. That is an achievement in and of itself.

I work for a fairly large mobile games company. We have a lot of first timers coming in who have never worked in games before. Some are 30 years old who have worked "normal" jobs prior to entering into the games industry. The expectations these people have working in the entertainment industry are out of wack. They spend all day complainming about long hours and low pay.

I've worked in graphics production for 11 years. I've never been unemployed. But for that to happen I've sometimes not been credited for work. I've had to work extremely long hours. Ridiclilus overtime. But I've never been unemployed. I've paid the rent and seen the world working as an "artist". My expectations are..tempered. I know what to take from the job. I know that some people are lucky and become "stars" but the majority of us work hard for our money.

You have to be realistic entering into any entertainment field about the hours and what sort of life you're going to lead. You need to be quite tough.

Incredible amount of menu and pointless cutscenes for a racing game. Unbelievably irritating. Just to get to the menu list takes about 20 seconds as the camera pointlessly pans around.

They have a second kickstarter before releasing the title of the first? Or did I miss something.
