It's nice to see bigotry is alive and well on the Blue's News forums.

News Comments > Respawn Chasing Titanfall Cheaters
18. Re: Respawn Chasing Titanfall Cheaters Mar 13, 2014, 11:15 Verno
 
Honestly, I don't know why companies like ea and Activision aren't hunting down the companies ...and specifically the PEOPLE being paid to provide hacks. They should have legal grounds to do so, as it subverts the original design of their software. Maybe that's where it'll eventually end up, but for now, banning the cheaters solves nothing. It's like scolding a drug addict and believing that'll stop the illegal drug trade.

The funny thing is that the community does a pretty good job of addressing things itself when it has the tools but the companies keep taking away more and more control. Activision/etc can't really sue the companies providing the hacks, many are in foreign countries and new ones will spring up to replace old ones quickly.

What a stupid comment!

What exactly is the correlation between an in-game weapon that everyone has access to (and is not the amazing killing machine that people go on about) and cheaters, ie. people using "aimbots and such".

Get bent. I don't think its game ruining or something because its a shitty weapon for bad players but I can't help but chuckle about them talking tough about cheats when they put a "smart pistol" in the game. It's literally a weapon that aims for you, if you don't see a bit of contradiction in that then oh well. These games already have degrees of auto-aim even.

And before you go there, no I'm not excusing cheaters or saying that its the same thing as someone headshotting you across the map behind a wall. Sure it's more serious when that person is using a Carbine instead of a dumb pistol that takes 3-4 shots to kill a pilot. I don't even care for lock on weapons in games like Battlefield but at least there is a power disparity between a vehicle and a soldier that is addressing.

I added up all of my shipping costs last year and they weren't close to $99, I also don't use Instant Video very much. So yeah I guess I'll just cancel it. I really don't mind waiting an extra day or two for shipping.

The smart pistol is really stupid (thankfully its bad at killing pilots) and makes them look a bit foolish in talking tough on cheaters.

that's exactly what it was designed to be... a simple dumbed down mech game for the CoD masses. just be glad we get served a game like this at all, so play and try to make the most of it instead of complain and complain... that's all i hear u guys do.

Errr what? He said he tried it and didn't like it so your suggestion is that hes thankful he gets it at all. PC gaming isn't a charity dude, they make money on these games or we would not see them at all. EA probably makes more money on every Origin copy sold than they do on the Xbox One.

2 words for you:
1) Cartridge games.
2) Devs taking advantage of the "Patch" system to rush out a product to the sheeple for quick money due to greed.

That is way more than 2 words.

Finished with True Detective last night. Without getting into spoilers I enjoyed it but agree that it never fully lived up to the potential shown by the 3rd and 4th episodes. McConaughey deserves some awards for his performances as Cole, guy has some serious acting chops when he gets the right script. I will definitely be interested in seeing what they come up with next year, I hope its an entirely new setting with no reappearances from the old cast.

Not related, but nice with watching Cadfael - is one of our favorite shows!

I'm really enjoying it too, thanks! If you have any similar recommendations let me know, we've already binged through Poirot and several other shows.

Private server lobbies? What the fuck?? Let me guess no dedicated server support either, no lan??

The matches themselves run on dedicated servers but they are not player run if that's what you're asking. There is no LAN support though I'm not surprised by that omission these days.

It is a good game, at times even a great one but they needed another year to flesh it out with more content IMO. I know people will crap all over this because Microsoft is trying to herald it as the Xbox One savior but it's a legit fun FPS game and certainly better than CoD these days.

I am personally not going to bother due to my backlog and Dark Souls II but people should definitely give it a whirl if they like twitch FPS games for $45 or less IMO.

Dark Souls II destroying Metacritic toot toot.

Microsoft's Azure cloud servers responsible for Titanfall's in-game AI, freeing up power for more advanced graphics

Uhhh wow marketing... The bots in that game are horrible and the game runs at 792p on the Xbox One with noticeable slowdown and screen tearing.

The PC version puts it to shame and the "cloud" is just a fancy way of saying dedicated servers for multiplayer.

This is ham of a game meant for kids, straight up. Polygon is the single biggest shill of a game site I'v EVER seen.

They will never live down taking that big lump sum of money from Microsoft/etc for their "documentary".

I get Blurays as gift pretty often but usually end up making my own rips for my fileserver. The only time I usually end up watching discs is Criterion edition stuff or older movies.

You are wrong about the XBOX. Just like the new windows, its selling rather well. Microsoft is so ubiquous that if they put shit in the box (which in a way they did) it would still sell well. People are stupid.

It sold well at Christmas but since then it's not doing great.

Also, sometimes I go to dinner and am looking at my phone while waiting. I run my own business, so I need to respond to things, and sometimes my wife and I just don't feel like conversing after a long day. Who are you to judge?

As long as your ringer is off I don't care. If your ringer is on then yeah I'll judge because I'm a paying patron too

Heh, don't even own a cell phone and probably never will. I like not being available 24\7... and seeing how my friends are attached to their devices all the friken time doesn't give me any incentive to get on board either.

That seems almost too overboard. You can have a cellphone and still just use it like a regular phone. No one makes you use all of the functionality in a smart phone or something, its purely by choice that people do it. I mean, whatever works for you man but I really like having my phone around.

But they properly cloned Uncharted for the latest game and offered it on all platforms. And the original apparently sold like 7 million copies back in the 90s. So, how were the expectations that flawed?

Tomb Raider had kind of been rebooting itself for a long time though and I'm sure was going through some audience exhaustion. I'm surprised it sold as well it did to be honest.

20. Re: Tomb Raider Mar 7, 2014, 13:59 Verno
 
There is also this thing called reality. Not every game can be Uncharted, GTA or Call of Duty, and not every game can sell like it. Any publisher that pretends their game is going to soar to such heights, history of the franchise be damned (and Tomb Raider had never sold more than ~4 million copies), are a bunch of delusional fucking morons that, again, have no fucking clue what they are doing.

I totally agree with you Creston but if the budgets come down to more realistic levels then consumer expectations have to do so as well. We would have received a far different Tomb Raider if they had spent half of the money.

You are right, from a couch viewing distance 720P on a 42" screen is fine for many things. But that isn't ultimately the point that is being said here. It's that this is the console for the next 7 years and this is already struggling with things that we would have just thought was a no-brainer given.

Yep exactly. Many games last gen looked better but ran worse as things wore on which I think is the concern many of us are talking about and that's without going into other port differences and design tradeoffs that were made. We'll have a better idea where things are at in a year once dev chain stuff is more optimized.
