Drop the camera down to first person view (and make sure you can look down and see your boobs), make the guns with less flashy effects, and bring the monsters on good and plenty and I think it would be better.

So hellgate "hell" except with even less production quality?

I have only seen and tested HEVC in a few media files so far, but the results were pretty damn impressive.. we are talking a good 50 to 70% more efficient compression than h.264 .. and if you maintain bitrate, you can achieve WAY higher quality than even with h.264

So 0.05% of profits for that.. seems.. well.. acceptable to me

Excerpt.

some dude asks

Game Design
by deltatype0

I am a "neutral" in the Gamergate debacle, preferring to observe more than directly interact, but in one case I watched the somewhat-infamous interview between Wu and Reddit KotakuInAction mod TheHat2

To which Wu replies

Brianna: First of all, if you are ďneutralĒ on the horrific abuse many women have suffered at the hands of Gamergate, you are a part of the problem. Being able to lean back in a chair and talk about Gamergate as if itís a fun controversy isnít a privilege I have, and itís not a privilege women in the game industry have. This is about being able to continue working in the field I love.

Being neutral about threats to murder, rape and intimidate women with opinions is a character defect.

Let that sink in, "intimidate women with opinions" aka, stating your opinion is to Wu a character defect.

explains everything yes?

Ps.: Also the comments on that Slashdot link are a riot To remind everyone, this is the "game developer" that never wrote a single piece of code, instead hired someone to make a game, then was friend with someone who gave it some award. And thinks she is irreplaceable and main figure in game development.

As much as we bash on Derek Smart... I'd take 50 Derek Smarts over her

How is the series holding up? I played Ep1 and enjoyed it, but haven't had any time since.

Well, it is.. interesting. That said it gets a lot darker in later episodes with consequences * (to some extend) to your choices revealing themselves. Aside that... it has a good story and pretty damn high production values.

Personally I only played to ep 2.. and then realized this is not a game you wanna be playing episodic... choices and your actions matter, and so it's best to wait this out until final episode releases.. and binge play it

In terms of time travel it makes pretty much no sense though. To the point where I think some of the things you can do are not time travel, but rather pure magic

When you have infinite resources at your disposal, and technology to use and refine them, aggression becomes unnecessary.

Religion wishes to disagree with you. Even if you gave people that join IS or Boku Haram everything material that exists, they would still try to massacre you for simply believing in something else. Then you would have the many terrorists who simply hate you because you are of a different nationality.. or who hate you because you have more than them.

No, humanity is doomed and the animals that murder innocents (I refuse to call IS members humans) will never be part of the enlightened part of our race as you describe. Even if you could somehow find infinite resources, which most definitely do not exist. Everything is finite in some way or another. And solar power isn't a solution either, after 15 years you can throw these expensive and difficult to make solar panels in the thrash and hope you still have energy somewhere to actually produce the stuff you need to make new ones...

The last time this game came up there was much whining about P2W, 3PV, and CW.... Yet none of those folks could provide a single argument/example that had an impact on the current game.

What? You can buy in-game consumables with real money and 4 of them ONLY with real money. That makes it pay to win, you can pay to circumvent gameplay elements.

Whether it helps you to literally win or not is irrelevant...

Also I assume you know that MWO has such bad population numbers that they removed the 3/3/3/3 drop limitation because wait times got too long, resulting in broken match making

And what I mean with IP? Look at recent official Battletech games, Mech Assault, MWO and that's it. MW was for decades a SP focused game with some MP features. Now all that's left is garbage console releases, freemium nonsense and a mod. You are right the rabbid Battletech fans are 1 reason this happened, but the other is that if you ignore your old fanbase entirely (as happened with MWO), that fanbase is going to hate you in return. I still remember how this game was "advertised", even before the pledging for it and what it became now.. that is what I mean with travesty.

Battletech is nowadays dead. Micropose was the one that put it on the table and made it shine.. Microsoft was the company that bothered to keep it alive and with Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries actually sort of approached perfection. And now? Now we have the choice between 2 newer games that have very little to do with what made Battletech fun.

Reality? MW 4 mercs + mektek is still superior, 13 years after.

And you can still find the DL for that if you look, even though MekTek "disappeared"

Uhuh.. how many are still playing this? Last I heard there was some outcry about it being total pay to win bullshit now... and when it wasn't that, it was 1 shot gunboat shit...

MWO is that 1 mech game I wish didn't exist, because Piranha Games managed to do what they always do when they touch anything. They fucked up the entire FUCKING IP. And that's from someone who once loved battletech... but not anymore.

This is and remains a travesty.

In Japan it is sadly common that you have a work environment where everyone bows to the boss and tries to hide bad news from management....

If you read the article you can see that the divisions reported wrong numbers for fear of admitting they didn't meet "wishfully predicted" profits.

Wonderfully wonky concept, but wasted on a side scroller. Should have been a first or second person 3d shooter, now that would be awesome, no BFGs here, you are the BFG "Tomba!"

I think a law should be passed that makes it illegal to publish outmoded game GUIs like side scrolling. I mean really how hard is it to execute the same concept in 3D?

Sidescrolling is a genre, not a GUI concept

Aside that professional devs would probably have added a VIDEO to their steam store page, you know.. as Steam even tells you to do that this majorly influences first impression when you submit a game And maybe they also would have released on steam with a WORKING GAME, instead of a false uploaded demo build that didn't work.

Professionals, hah

The SpaceX link is far more interesting. First real failure, and it leads to a landfall of new improvements. That's why sometimes you gotta fail to win. The Dragon Cargo Capsule SURVIVED THE EXPLOSION and only the software update enabling chutes was missing, or the entire cargo module would have survived.

And a structural integrity failing is something everyone who plays KSP knows very well can happen at the most weird moments

When are companies going to get it through their thick heads that enabling mods is what brings in more customers/fans/$$$?!? It's not rocket science!


=-Rigs-=

When you sign a license deal it's no longer actually your "game" So devs might want to mod support, but a license deal may specifically state that the dev is forced to prevent users from adding new cars or tracks, or even liveries as part of that very licensing deal.

It's a shitty situation, but the reason RBR is the king of the rally games is exactly because modding was never "supported" at all but the engine was easy enough to hack apart. Newer engines however are not. Making a track for DIRT Rally is likely entirely impossible without the very same tools and licensed software packages the dev used.

To be fair, the comic.. *was* thought up in.. 1958.. way before any higher (and proven!) science on ant communication and behavior existed.

I am expecting silly fun and CGI ants.. surely that will be delivered
