80 players playing on average.. user ratings are worthless.

532 reviews... do you think the system is that easy to game?

http://store.steampowered.com/app/270450/#app_reviews_hash

Well, more than a bit weird when steam says only 71 players on peak (3 months ago), don't you think? I guess there are about 500 to 1000 players...

https://steamdb.info/app/270450/graphs/

Also it only says 81 positive "helpful" reviews for me, but Steam does some really strange stuff with user ratings so who knows

Nowadays I guess I am just more skeptical

Could be explained by the fact that back a few weeks or months the dev gave free keys on nerdcubed reddit (a youtube let's player) so that seems more like rating boosting from people that saw a video of it than actual ratings from players. Hence why I think user ratings are worthless. They just don't say a lot, and can easily be boosted.

Calling that optimistic may be understating it... how many active players right now? I'd bet not even close to 300k

Oh, how interesting. I didn't realize that mobile data was a completely different kind of data. All these corporations are such cockbags. You make billions in profits and it's still never enough. You just have to keep trying to stick it in and break it off sans lube. Why aren't the terrorists killing those assholes? They're the real problem, not Joe Sixpack on the street.



Because terrorists are stupid. And stupid only sees what stupid does. Stupid people will never understand what insanely complex corruption and exploitation exists in our banking and corporate world. Which is why it still exists...

So it'd be just like now.. just more orderly?

This is the reason I stopped reading Shacknews back in the day as well. Once they went web 2.0 it was over (that, and Steve Gibson's departure just made it weird for someone who started with the Shugashack).

Thankfully Blue keeps it looking like the 90s!

It doesn't help that most other "gaming" sites are now just images with a tiny amount of text.. takes forever to actually find anything on these damn things. or you have other sites wherre you can fit at best 10 headlines on the screen. And everywhere is tiny images that want your attention.. blah

That's not saying I don't like fancy websites, but I come here for information, and information is best served raw.

Just not visible to the public via store search but it is on steam actual too

http://store.steampowered.com/app/271590/

There are also people testing the game on PC via Steam right now ,)

That's clever. How'd you discover that little trick?

SteamDB ? That's just a nice tool to have at your disposal as gamer in general. And as Harlock says, game is "on steam" in some form for more than half a year now.

But it is definitely "on steam" that does not mean it'll release on the 27th.. but everything they need is there.

When you press on packages and their ID , you can see whether a game is region locked, and in what regions. That's what I use that mainly for...

eRe4s3r, in a way your making the case against yourself. By pointing out they all belong to the same organization yet they have one of the, if not the best list of GOTY awards I've seen so far. I do agree, there could be a category about Indie only, yet they do cover many indies in the list.

So your saying hey look, it must be corrupt cause they are all in a club, yet the club by action has done the best work.

They have Destiny in "Best technology"

That said, I get what you mean. But I never said I disagree with all the choices, I said this is a corporate sponsored award show. The UBM awards And UBM does not make it easy to see that connection.

I find that dishonest, simple as that And it may well be possible that UGM nominated "developers" have their own minds and make fair nominations. But judging is done by UBM and UBM only.

All this really means, never trust these awards. Never trust anything on the internet. Or on TV.. Don't trust me either, look this stuff up yourself, and decide for yourself what you want to think about it.

Ah yes, nothing like the fresh breeze of sponsored awards where bribery and connections get you nominated and that ignores 99% of all indy developers that simply don't have the connections needed to get nominated...

joy

So which indie dev in Best Narrative has connections?

The ones that got nominated, obviously.

I am just gonna quote something

All professional game developers who are part of the ICAN member list are eligible to provide nominations, both for the Special and Regular Awards. International Choice Awards Network (ICAN) is an invitation-only group comprised of leading game creators from all parts of the video game industry.

Try googling that Leads you here

http://www.gamechoiceawards.com/advisory.html

which says

The editors of Game Developer and Gamasutra have chosen an Advisory Committee

Both owned by UBM

So..
awards, run by UBM,
judges, nominated by UBM
gamasutra, owned by UBM
GD, owned by UBM
IGF, run by UBM
Advisory Panel (that nominates) with people invited by UBM

Notice a pattern here?

This isn't an award show about games, this is the UBM "who makes us the most money" show.

Maybe I am jaded, but when 1 company is connected to ALL elements of an awards show then I am calling bullshit on that bullshit.

Don't get so worked up, we censor pretty much anything here unless its on HBO.


This may be odd to you, but to me this is absolutely new. I mean yeah, I laugh at stupid American shows censoring the "mouth" when someone says "fuck" But they do this in actual news reporting? Within their actual news... report? So what is the value of their news reporting?

If I can get better info of the web.. then why would I read censored media?

i dunno - i feel like this is at least a step in the right direction for PC gaming - towards my vision of pc gaming utopia:

which is, a PC platform that does nothing but run games, with no OS to speak of, maybe a couple of completely transparent layers of middleware - but more or less just straight from the metal to the game.. thats what im talkin bout...

it will take a long while but this is the kinda move that makes it theoretically possible, which is the first step towards being actually possible

One can tell you never actually used a mod for a game ,)

Freedom of speech .. in the USA.. haha

The terrorists already won, the US media has no backbone left. And who still got backbone? German, French and assorted Media... and who blurred the caricatures? The UK and the US

The irony...

Proof

I'm personally waiting to get a 970 or 980 with 8gb ram (only the 4gb variety are available now), and then going completely crazy (but tastefully) with a ultimate modded skyrim play through. I've yet to try any of the big DLC's even. Looking forward to it.

Your VRAM makes little to no difference on Skyrim's stability. It's the engine itself which craps out with too many mods installed .(especially memory hungry ones.)

You'd see absolutely no difference with a 4GB or 8GB card.

Unless of course you're using graphics mods which use VRAM in which case it matters very much how much VRAM you have. You can easily eat up 4GB of VRAM even modding Oblivion, lol.

That's not how 32bit engines work.. if you have a texture mod when that texture is loaded by the game then that uses RAM and VRAM at the same time. Meaning you will never exceed 4GB vram, unless you use some weird AA setting.
