Rockstar doesn't give a shit about PC. The only reason PC is getting GTA5 is because it's not too much trouble while they release it for next gen.

Fuck any idiot who falls for Rockstar's tricks and buys this game twice.

I get that exclusivity periods of DLC are easy, I mean, it just costs money and if there's one thing MSFT has it's money, but does it actually sell systems? Does anyone actually care? I suppose people must, but I buy systems for games. I buy very, very little DLC. Basically, if it isn't in the box I'm not buying it, so I get DLC if and only if I buy a GOTY edition.

Does it sell new systems? I don't see how it could. Virtually everyones reaction to exclusivity periods on systems they don't own is "Fuck you, eat a bag of dicks." That's not really a sentiment that you want people having towards your company. Exclusionary practices are not a way to build new customers. Obviously you're going to make more enemies than friends. But it DOES build loyalty among existing customers who can't look past their own selfish desires to see the behavior for what it really is.

Everyone has exclusives. That's just business. But Microsoft were the ones who pissed me off first, so I'll be buying Sony consoles and will probably never own an MS console again. I imagine there are other people like me who Microsoft has alienated.

The catchphrase for this years E3 seems to be "New content first on Xbone". MS has bought up an exclusivity period for DLC on things like The Division, Dragon Age, Assassins Creed, etc.

Wildstar has the worst spam of any MMO I've ever played. And I played ESO, so that's saying a lot. No way that I can see to easily report spammers, either (needs a right-click option in my mail). I kind of wonder why MMOs aren't able to more easily ban spam. Seems like it'd be an easy problem to solve (this email just went to 50 people and has a URL in it, better flag it for review).

I'm not sure why we see so much spam in Wildstar. Their automated bans for gold spam are EXTREMELY aggressive (to the point of causing a significant number of false positives when people set off triggers while merely DISCUSSING gold spam in zone chat), why can't they filter it out at the same time?

Dude was downplaying the Holocaust and playing up the benefits of the Third Reich in a previous thread. I believe the context was he wanted a game where he was a Nazi hero.

No one cares about your ignore list, putting people on ignore when you were the one at fault is asinine. Its a very transparent attempt at saving face and pointless when you could have just said 'oops i should have read a bit more closely, my mistake'.

e: Please feel free to put me on ignore for daring to make sense though, I'll happily wear that badge.

There's really no reason for Cutter to be here. He contributes nothing. Honestly, he makes a token negative post, which nearly everyone has learned now to disregard, and then moves on to the next post.

It's always some inflammatory bullshit based on reading the headline and not the article. And if it's not that, it's some bullshit that is so infuriatingly wrong that he's either stupid, or a troll. And he just ignores anyone who doesn't agree with him. He doesn't have enough knowledge on any subject to sustain any kind of conversation or debate, so when you post a rebuttal, he disregards it rather than put any effort into discussion.

Does that include Star Citizen

I don't know. I don't really follow Star Citizen that closely, I don't know what disclaimers they've given, if any. Certainly you're taking your risks buying into a title that ambitious, but if they haven't been clear that the title might end up being something less than indicated, then that's on them, at least partially, not on the people who bought in with the idea that they were going to deliver.

If the developer and Steam make it clear that there is no promise the title will ever reach a certain state of features and content, and you still pay your money for the game in its current state, then that's that. If the game doesn't turn out how you want, you don't get to cry six months later and say it's not complete enough and demand your money back. You DO get to go fuck yourself however.

Early Access is buying a game in its current state with the hope that it'll be more. The hope, not the guarantee. If you can't handle this arrangement, don't buy Early Access titles and you don't have to worry about it. It's pretty fucking simple.

Certainly more simple than trying to come up with some convoluted and ridiculous system for defining what is or isn't a "finished" game.

The story in the game so far is pretty boring. I've been playing for a week straight, but I did have to start over on day 2 because of the save game bug. I haven't even finished Act 2 yet, because I've been doing all the side missions and collectibles. I have been having fun, but I'm to the point that I kind of just want to do the missions and get the story over with already.


The story feels a bit lackluster and predictable... the same "plot twists" that you see from a mile away, the same rather unsatisfying ending... The story is definitely something I wish they would have invested more effort in, a pity, cause the game is a lot of fun.

I finally did a couple missions last night. After I did the "back seat driver" mission, it opened up all of the upgrades, and I am maxed and I haven't even started the game. ahahhahaha I guess all of my time doing side stuff was helpful! I have almost $1M.....not sure why money is such a focus.....after buying all guns (about 200k+) all you need to do is buy ammo...

/raptr says I have 30 hours in the game

At one point about mid way through the story, maybe a bit before, you unlock the ability to buy all those one-time hack things from a vendor. They can drain your funds pretty quickly if you use them a lot. Other than that, not much to buy, yeah.

. They say this is not only a Ubisoft record, but it also makes Watch Dogs the bestselling new IP in history based on NPD and GFK data and internal estimates as of June 3, 2014.

BS

Peak players on Steam is only 25k. Well below SEVERAL games. There is no way this set any records other than their own.

Cause Steam stats represent Xbox and Playstation sale right?

Seriously, for better or worse, this game was the "poster child" for Next Gen consoles. It's going to be even more console-heavy on its sales than most titles. People literally bought consoles JUST for this game. Whether that was smart or not doesn't matter. That's how it goes. Also it's sell-through, so that's actual copies in the hands of people, not just rotting on shelves.

If you're a more casual MMO player, don't bother with this title. It's quite a grind to level if you don't have a static 2-3 person group, and they've focused their modest budget on PvE endgame so that they don't need a bunch of subs to keep the game rolling along.

There's other stuff in the game, but that's where their focus is. So if you're not interested in that, don't bother.

The Half Elf wrote on May 30, 2014, 21:21:

I had to get use to driving and the car handling in the game. It's not as good as GTA4/5 but slightly better then Saints Row 3 and Sleeping Dogs, but Motorcycles are just as horrible as Saints 3 and Sleeping Dogs.

I found myself actually preferring motorcycles in Watch Doge after I spent some time with them. My gamepad was having issues so I had to go back to KB/Mouse for driving, and for some reason motorcycles were a lot easier for me with KB/Mouse than cars were. Plus it's a lot easier to not kill civilians with the smaller profile.

And the city is full of little sidewalks and stairs that motorcycles handle easily but cars will not. And being able to thread Blockers is nice too.

It's just sad to see how little stuff there is in WD, while said stuff IS in GTA5. I can't even imagine how little there would have been in WD had they not delayed it right after GTA5 came out and they realized their game would have looked terrible compared to it.

Probably shouldn't be watching biased, literally one-sided videos by people with an axe to grind if you don't want to feel sad.

Maybe I ought to make a video where I compare Saints Row to GTA by rubbing my car against a wall and then declare the Saints Row series literally unplayable shit.

Finally beat the story last night, and I've gotten through most of the side stuff now.

I'm interested to see where they go with the franchise. I'm hoping a Watch Dogs 2 will be similar to Assassins Creed 2 in terms of a bump in focus. Like figuring out what worked, what didn't, and doubling down on what did. And of course fixing the performance disaster. Game looked and ran phenomenally for me, but my system is nowhere representative of what developers should be targeting.

All in all, I'd say it's a solid first installment for a new game, but you can definitely see a lot of AC1 in it, where they didn't know exactly what they wanted to do.
