Won't the x86 architecture prevent a shoddy release? Maybe I don't understand.

It should, easily. If they fuck this up, it'll be beyond amazing.

I'd love to know what sort of a hardware you'd need to get the kind of details shown in the trailer running at 1080p-60fps.
I doubt my GTX760 will cut it.
On the other hand, I was amazed at how good the original looked on the ancient 360. So maybe you will be okay. R* has the money to optimize.

Yeah, running on 512 meg of ram. Can you believe that shit????? For what they pulled off, with what little they had, it was amazing.

Cutter, go watch the video, where it flat out says it's going to be rated R.

Love ya dearly, but that went so far over your head it made the Hubble look like it buzzed the tower.

DAMMIT!

Clearly you're unfamiliar with Deadpool, otherwise you'd know its one property that should have an R rating. Deadpool isn't for kiddies. At least he's not supposed to be, so that means this is going to suck. Probably as bad as Green Lantern.

*whoosh* x 2


It's so beautiful...

COMING TO PC APRIL 14

...of 2016!

I love the way it said "Coming to PC" and then sat there for a good few seconds before finally showing the date. Like they were just screwing with people a bit...

I'm honestly curious as to your history with QA and software development cuz... well... yes. Yes it IS that bad. This should have never made it anywhere near release. But nothing will ever touch Pool of Radiance and their "uninstalling this game may erase your OS" bug. NOTHING will touch that.

Technically I've worked as a QA, tester, and designer and higher-ups had tried to push me into being a QA manager before I completely burned out. No, it is not that bad. Yes, it is entirely within reason that something like this made it through to release (obviously depending on when it was introduced).

Technically speaking this is -not- a game breaker. The game still loads, runs, functions, story triggers still launch and the player is still technically able to proceed through the product. Regardless of your personal feelings on the matter it is not a game breaker. If double clicking on an item crashed to the desktop or locked you in the inventory screen or otherwise impeded your ability to progress etc. then it would be an actual game breaker. This is just a major inconvenience.

Coming up to release the focus on QA would have most likely been revolving around story triggers and blockers. Making sure that particular events triggered when they were supposed to and that skipping ahead through side quests didn't break main quest progression. Most of that would be done using debug tools rather than paying a tester to actually sit there and play through the entire content as well, it's just not feasible with a product of this scope.

And balance issues would not be getting addressed in the final QA passes prior to launch, that would come along in a future patch - same as text issues and other polish. There's only a finite amount of testing time and priorities need to be established, and like it or not, technical functionality trumps pretty much everything in the final pre-launch crunch.

Yeah, I don't get why he's freaking out over it either, for the exact examples you outline.

In all seriousness, I don't mean to offend. But Bronies (and their rise, over the past few years) really have me scratching my head.

I had much the same thought on I nterstellar. My group was enjoying it right up to the black hole scene, and we were watching it on Imax so that was particularly impressive. Then all "that" happened and it went too far off the rails for all of us. So close yet so far.

Totally agree. Wanted to like it so badly, but the ending...when the video describes it as "going full shyamalan", I laughed out loud. I'd never connected the two, yet it seemed a perfect comparison, once mentioned.

Man, Blue, it's hard to post when I have to tab through everything!
