The price should be really low to begin with since it is such a limited experience. Too bad these gimicks never work in practice, because it does seem like a cool idea.

Who in the hell plays split screen on PC?! Whats next people demanding it plays on their android phone too? Get the fuck out.

PC is about choice. You get the fuck out. There is very little to support, it's not like split screen is harder to implement on pc than console. It's the same amount of work. I understand them not supporting it, but it's a-ok to call them on it.

Not that I care about this game at all.the

Look, it's not like this is new. Devs have been optimistic in their demos for a long long time. We only know about the cases where in the end the teams weren't able to reach the target that has been set. Now why it seems like devs are failing to reach their targets more and more (and ubisoft in particular seems to have fallen victim to this more than most lately) is another thing.

I'm not sure that underpromising is going to be a winning strategy against other developers who may actually be able to capitalize on their hype. Show the vertical slice, don't promise all the excess features, and then actually prioritize meeting that vertical slice so that you can wow people and then develop a reputation for actually being able to deliver.

I love how a guy who uses win8.1 criticized microsoft for trying to force win10, was subsequently criticized for using win8.1, and then the thread ran far far away from either windows 10 or minecraft.

...melodramatic dialogue and bad voice acting...

Woah, are you saying this is a bad thing?

Symphonia is the only Tales game that really grabbed me, and it's one of my favorite rpgs. I really love the combat, there isn't anything else quite like it in the genre.

This pre-order stuff is kind of weird. enough people have to preorder before the symphonia bonus is unlocked? Hate this kind of thing.

Almost a year ago...

That's against the "two month port job" quote from before. One of them is clearly a lie.

Stop worrying. Get your refund and see if they right the ship. Meanwhile, fire up terraria again and get lost in its absurdly huge content expansion.

Article may be false, unsubstantiated, and probably true anyway... but there is no contradiction. The 1 year ago is when they were having trouble getting the game running on CONSOLES and shifted all resources to the console side. Which would explain WHY they had to outsource the pc port later, as they had stopped work on it.

Maybe they are not the one to blame for the Batman Arkham Knight PC Port but that incident does not really make me interested in what they are working on next.
I am actually taking sides for studios that recently took pains to offer quality console ports. I have in mind Rockstar. Those that required me to upgrade from my dual core processor to play their games like Far Cry4 or Dragon Inquisition are not going to see the color of my money any time soon.

I get dinging really bad ports such as AK or AC:Unity. But PC gamers can't have it both ways. Do we want the games to be focused on min-spec on pc, med-spsec, or high-spec? Most games target med-spec, which tends to be a bit higher range than the current consoles. We want our games to be meatier on pc than on consoles, we expect it. Sometimes that means you need to upgrade past min-spec. Dual core is really outdated.

Though targeting med-spec means we don't get as much of an upgrade as we kind of expect, while still not having great performance for less than med... PC really sucks to develop for because of the heavy fragmentation. Fortunately there is enough of a spread to make money on us and keep porting games.

Rockstar is great, but they sure took their time. I don't know if smaller games than GTA or titles from PC-focused companies will ever warrant such attention.

Sadly the result may be, let's just not release on pc at all because it's too easy for people to get refunds.

News Comments > Batman: Arkham Knight Performance Update
30. Re: Batman: Arkham Knight Performance Update Jun 24, 2015, 13:58 saluk
 
Arkham City deleted my save game twice, I barely was able to get the will to finish it after that. Admittedly it was a GFWL problem, but it swore me off of these Batman games. I'm glad I missed out on this one!

Edit: Oh crap, I remembered I did get Origins on sale for a couple bucks a few months ago, played a couple hours and realized it was the same game, and haven't gone back to it yet. The same may happen here, though it's not looking good right now.

Spector: "I worked really hard to avoid games that had a 4, 5 or 14 after their names."

Spector: "I had the Deus Ex experience and, for a change, I didn't know all the secrets. That was pretty cool. I'm really looking forward to Mankind Divided."

You mean Deus Ex 4?

Also, he was asked this question: "Did you experience any of it at the show?" And his answer was: "I've been pretty consistent in my belief that VR is a fad." He prejudges the tech, and doesn't even say anything about any VR stuff he tried - if he tried any at all.

And anyone who dismisses VR because it makes you look silly is obviously unaware of where the culture is these days. Looking silly while playing games has generated serious revenue for some people.

Spector you sound like a crotchety old man. But I still love ya, just like I love my grandfather who complains about the government spying on him through his radio

Leave harlock and his meds out of it, I'm happy I'm helping both him and me by buying them off him for cheap.

P.S. I think Slick really hates what in his mind is most of use Blue's users (a sterotype), he does seem to be arguing with 'you people' which I don't think anyone else knows who it is.

alright, i'm just going to stop repeating myself. if you can't see any logic in my arguments, then leave it alone.

if you can't understand me saying "you people" then you haven't been paying attention. i'm talking to everyone in this thread who's poopoo-ed this developer for A) not being "AAA" mainstream enough, and B) for pre-judging a game that literally no one here has played. and C) for pissing on the wounds of some people who have just lost everything. if you can't understand that, then you like everyone else in this thread are totally immune to irony.

remember this thread next time you see a headline that reads: "blizzard reduces upcoming game to 4 classes to be more user-friendly" and ALL YOU PEOPLE go bananas about it, clamoring for more fringe titles that aren't afraid to "take creative chances" LOL

You have to have something in order to lose it. Having a dream and realizing after a long time that that dream doesn't match reality is not quite the same. This developer has found after much effort that the market they are currently aiming at just isn't big enough. Sucks that they spent a lot in following this path, but now that they have woken up, perhaps they can find their true path - either the individuals who mistakenly believed in this dream, or the collective as a whole.

I'm all for taking creative chances, and I actually really love all of the groups experimenting with interactive experiences to go beyond just games. I think some great innovations for real games may come out of experiments like these. But it's called a risk for a reason. You have to know that the risk may not pay off. I hope they learn the right lessons from their failures.

No kidding. Played through gears with a buddy (only way to play it imo), and have been waiting for the next game ever since.
