Personally I thought the graphics bitching about Watch Doge was overblown. The game had some gameplay & story shortcomings that I hope they work out in the sequel, but it wasn't an ugly game.

Beyond that it's just Windows as usual, what's the problem?

The same hysterics we've been hearing about Windows versions going back to XP and maybe before. Remember when XP was going to delete all your MP3s?

Every new Windows versions you get these old crusty open-source fucks coming out of the woodwork to talk about the latest horrible atrocity by Microsoft, the GREAT SATAN of software. Meanwhile people keep upgrading Windows and business as usual keeps truckin along without everyone being rounded into FEMA camps.

Not really a big deal considering Vulkan is effectively Mantle, and DX12 does a lot of the same shit.

There are no fun console games.

I wouldn't go so far as to say "no" fun console games, but I'm really wondering how much longer I'm going to be buying consoles for. It's getting to the point where I'm lucky if I buy more than 5 titles over the course of the console's life. That's just not worth the investment.

Unless you're playing all the multiplatform titles on the console rather than your PC, it's just not worth it. The console exclusives just aren't that great and aren't that numerous either.

There's almost no reason to own any other platform if you own a PC, unless you're really into Nintendo I guess, but even then their first party shit hasn't been that great in a long time.

Macs are great, I do a lot of gaming on my Macbook. The Apple laptop market keeps growing each quarter while PC shipments keep declining. The biggest problem Macs face is just drivers and retarded Apple bullshit where they can't decide if they're going to take gaming seriously or not.

Really? I thought the problem was they didn't ship any gaming PCs?

This is just a port of Pocket Edition which they've been developing for years to Win10 devices, basically.

Also Mojang hasn't done anything notable with the main version of Minecraft in ages. Modders have effectively standardized on a version of Minecraft that is over a year old at this point. There's literally no reason to play anything newer than 1.7.10 because that's what all the mods are for and updated on.

Reddit is going the way of digg. It's being mismanaged into the ground.

Essentially, the best information we have so far suggests Victoria was let go because she voiced concerns about some of the things the new management at Reddit wanted to do with how they ran AMAs. (I.e. doing video AMAs, allowing celebrities' publicists to masquerade as them, and other ways to commercialize it.)

That's kind of the trend with reddit. They want to commercialize whereever they can to improve the bottom line. The problem is that reddit isn't hard to replace. If they keep pushing, people WILL leave to go to some clone like Voat or elsewhere. And without users, no attempt at commercialization will succeed.

They'll say a few nice things to try and get those subreddits opened back up, and if they don't open back up, the nice things will stop and they will simply ban the moderators and take them over themselves.

Huh, doesn't youtube already proacticely police piracy? If you upload a video with a copyrighted song, they flag the video and mute it.

They do, but in cases where it fails, that court has ruled they aren't legally liable.

Im sorry jdreyer but that's not how it works. Throwing money at the game won't magically make it better, or even guarantee that it will ever be released. Nin (like myself and many others) signed up for something that has turned into something completely different, and more importantly with nothing to show for it. That is why he wants his money back.

Yep... that's why I cashed out. I was looking for a good solid space sandbox type experience with multiplayer. So far there's just a bunch of incomplete sub-projects and there doesn't appear to be an overall vision or a finish line.

A project doesn't work when you don't have a budget. It's hard enough to do project management in software in a conventional setting. When the amount of money you have on hand for the project is increasing in unpredictable spurts? You don't really know what you can afford and what you can't. It leads to overspending and underspending.

And this is coming from Chris Roberts who, as you said, is known for his problems with feature creep.

Instead of getting a polished title that fits within the budget, the game will be a mish-mash of broken shit. There's almost no reason to think it'll turn out any other way. I reserved judgement for a long time, but I've seen enough to know where this is heading now.

Chris Roberts is using a bunch of idiots' money to goof off in a way that actual investors wouldn't allow.

I always imagine with Ultima Online they just kinda forgot about it. The servers are running in the basement of some building somewhere for the fifty people who still play it.

It's not worth the effort to go down there and pull the plug. Might as well keep it going until no one is left or the servers give out...

News Comments > Minecraft PC Sells > 20M
19. Re: Minecraft PC Sells > 20M Jun 30, 2015, 23:52 NKD
 
So I did a little footwork to provide some amusement for you all... I present to you, a case study in denial, Cutter & Minecraft! He's had such a hate boner for Minecraft since the very beginning. As we all know, there's nothing Cutter hates more than seeing something he doesn't like have any success at all.

He started out in full denial mode. I didn't search too hard so you can probably find posts where he talks about "wire fraud" and "lawsuits" somewhere during this period, his two favorite terms.

"Anyway, I still don't believe these numbers, probably because I'll never get the draw of this game."
-Cutter, January 21 2011, on Minecraft hitting 1 million sales.

"Really? I have a hard time believing this."
-Cutter, April 6 2011, on Minecraft reaching approximately $33 million in gross revenue.

"I really can't believe this thing has sold that much. And with no independent way to verify it, I'll continue on in that belief."
-Cutter, June 14 2011, on Minecraft hitting 2.5 million sales.

Then once the sales numbers and success become even too apparent for his fucked up brain to deny, he begins to believe everyone is buying it but no one is actually playing because the game is so shit.

"Given its price point how many people bought it simply because other people had it? What's the average continual play time of this game? How many people bought it and checked it out for a week and never touched it again?"
-Cutter, November 12 2012, on Minecraft hitting 8 million sales.

Fast forward to last year and Cutter thinks it's just a thing you have to have to be cool. I'll spare you the part of the post where he goes on about how he's always rebelled against what's popular because it's easy to go along with the mainstream.

"Minecraft is simply something people have to have to be part of the in-crowd. Like all theses sorts of one offs it's a fluke."
-Cutter, June 26 2014, Minecraft hitting an estimated 50 million sales across all platforms.

Anyway, this took me a good 15 minutes to put together, so I hope you enjoy.
