I find it ironic that he claims that they didn't need to change to bring the games to console.

Your first mistake is assuming "dumbing down" has anything to do with consoles. Newsflash: PC gaming is not a hardcore niche anymore, and "dumbing down" benefits them on PC just as much as it does on consoles.

This is that same fucking piece of shit that literally DISSOLVES IN SALT WATER

We bitch a lot at the F-35 fiasco, deservedly, but what the Navy is doing is 100% as retarded. Littoral combat ships that have little to no shred of self defense, concurrency shit on our carriers which has caused us to be short on carriers, etc.

You'd think there'd be SOMEONE with half a brain cell in the military SOMEWHERE?

Different ship.

A lot of indie shovelware and 7, 8 year old titles being added to prop that number up, that's why the market share isn't going up along with the number of titles. Quality matters to people more than quantity.

They should be ordering more than 3 of these. Way more. At least 2 for each carrier group. Our military loves to get mad at the price tag of things, then they prioritize some ill-advised refit project to upgrade older hardware which ends up actually costing more in the long run.

Oh well, when these idiots are eating bullets from a Chinese firing squad in a few years maybe they'll wish they had spent less money playing in the sand and more money preparing our military for the future.

I mean, if they had to remake one, why didn't they remake best-in-class FF6 rather than one of the most overwrought entries in the series? Oh. Right. Nostalgia value only.

Carry on, as you were.

No one was really clamoring for a FF6 remake like they were for FF7.

6, 7, and 10 are probably the most played titles of each generation. 6 ages well because the pretty sprites are kind of timeless. A remake in modern graphics could never recapture the feeling and would have to take a lot of liberties with the art style. (Look at the concept art for some of the FF6 characters. They look way better as sprites...)

10 is newer, already fully 3D, fully voice acted, and was best served with just a Remaster.

7 is in the middle. Visually, it doesn't hold up well being a very early attempt at 3D with 2D backdrops. It isn't voice acted. It could do with some new dialogue.

In short, the demand is there, and it's a good candidate for a remake, lacking a lot of the potential downsides of remaking something like 6.

Do you have numbers to back that up? DOTA 2 seems pretty popular, as does HotS.

League of Legends was peaking out around 8 million concurrent players last I checked, with Dota 2 peaking out around 1 million. Dunno that any HotS numbers are available but I doubt it's even as high as Dota 2.

You can probably Google more recent numbers. That was ealrier this year.

Remember when WoW took off and then everyone and their brother wanted to make an MMO game and pretty soon the market was so flooded that they could barely make a profit?

I predict the same market saturation here.

We can already see it first hand. League of Lesbians has all the players. Even its closest competitor Dota 2 has a tiny fraction of the player base.

The problem with making a MOBA, or an MMO, is people only want to play the game that everyone else is already playing.

Doesn't really matter even if it were true. We all know they have some skeleton crew working on HL3 for years now. But without it being a priority for the company even its existence doesn't guarantee it'll ever see the light of day.

Five years seems reasonable for this crime. Long sentences as deterrent has been disproven time and time again. Sure, it sounds like it would work to the exceedingly ignorant (i.e. Cutter), but in reality it doesn't work.

Like the dude said, who is gonna sit there and go "5 years in jail? No problem... but 10-20 isn't worth it I'm not going to make these phone calls..."

A large number of crimes, probably even the majority, are committed by people who are not considering the consequences or who believe they will not be caught. Very few would-be criminals are sitting there doing the math and checking out possible sentences they might receive if caught. Otherwise you wouldn't have people risking 10 year prison sentences for 50 bucks out of a cash register.

Long prison sentences also lead to revolving door criminality. You have a constant outflow of criminals who have served long sentences and who can't adjust to normal society anymore and fall back into criminal behavior, often times worse. This is especially true of behavior like swatting. The person isn't a hardened irredeemable criminal and can still be rehabilitated into a decent human being in a reasonable amount of time.

Long prison sentences are essentially just passing the buck. You're not deterring anything, and someone's gonna have to deal with that fucker again later after he's spent a bunch of years in Criminal Academy.

News Comments > Just Cause 3 Patch Status
19. Re: Just Cause 3 Patch Status Dec 3, 2015, 19:03 NKD
 
The performance issues/bugs definitely aren't there for everyone. I've at no time had a crash, long loading periods, or texture bug, and the performance is good on a three year old high-end rig.

This isn't the first game in recent memory that people have said was buggy and awful that I never had a problem with, either...

I've avoided a lot of other titles that have been said to be very buggy and run poorly, but I wonder how many of those legitimately have problems and how many are just perceived to be buggy because a few loudmouths with shitty computers started something which then became gospel repeated by people without first hand experience.

Hell in the last Just Cause 3 thread someone was insisting there was an always-online DRM, when in fact there is not.

I'm not saying people aren't having issues, but I'm starting to wonder if it isn't overblown a bit and how much people with crappy computers at the bottom end of minimum spec are contributing to it.

I'm more concerned with the online DRM causing interruptions than loading a huge open world taking a bit... I guess that means it's time to wait a few months for them to get their full value from inconveniencing paying customers to prevent piracy before they finally relent and remove it.

Not sure what online DRM you're talking about. Game runs fine offline.

Excuse me, "persistent online features." Several reviews mention how goddamned annoying it is because their servers suck, and the offline mode isn't really an offline mode as it frequently attempts to reconnect upon such common actions as opening the map or pausing. It's the early days of Uplay all over again.

The only online feature I've seen is the leaderboards and when my Internet went out for an hour last night due to Comcast being fucking stupid my gameplay was not interrupted nor were there any timeouts or waiting for it to try to connect to anything.

Couldn't get my SLI setup working but it doesn't really matter because I'm running 60fps at 1440 most of the time anyway. Dips down a bit in heavy action though so I'd like to get SLI going eventually.

Looks like a lot of people are running into various technical issues, though I haven't had any myself yet.

It's gonna be the mobile version with butchered stock RPG-Maker looking sprites. Just emulate the GBA version with the ROM hack that fixes the sound to be SNES quality.

While this is illegal in many countries, it's hardly widespread on Steam and other gaming sites, and is usually only done by the shittiest tier indie devs who don't make anything you want to play anyway.

So I'm not going to lose much sleep over it or get too outraged.
