Hammond, Indiana, not Hammond, Illinois. I'm trying to picture a rap festival in Hammond, IL; I just don't see that working.

And that doesn't change the fact that DX12 was designed around the XB1 rather than on advancing PC gaming.
What specific implementation details lead you to this conclusion?

Star Trek was all about exploration of space and exploration of humanity...I think Elite:D is missing the humanity part
The most recent Elite expansion consists of a bunch of people fucking each other over using everyone as faceless pawns. If that's not humanity, then I don't know what is.

Star Citizen zealots can't leave us alone in peace. Fine! Go ahead consume all the oxygen here. I'm going to watch Space Jam.
People who like Star Citizen won't leave you alone in the comments of a post about Star Citizen? That's odd.

What does it matter when it was finished?

Ah well I think one of the points the mob had there was you took parts of the final game out and sold it to us again as DLC. So if it were done at the time the game was released that was a no-no. One may or may no agree with that, but I think that was a common comment on it.
To maximize DLC sales, the first content pack needs to be out before the first wave of trade-ins. That means getting it into certification near or before the game's release date. For a multiplayer game the window could be longer (Destiny, Call of Duty), but for a single player game, that content needs to be ready ASAP.

Just in case there was any confusion what priority Rocksteady has (hint: It's not fixing the PC version)
Please explain what the work of WB Montreal, a separate studio, has to do with Rocksteady's priorities.

I think this one line pretty much sums you up as a human being.
Would you say the same thing if he said something like "I reserve the right to steal if I get desperate enough"?
Yes. Because it wasn't the stealing that's so revealing; it's that he thinks it's a right.

Yes on spysteam and only on spysteam , that is not ALL pc gamers , jezz ya all think steam is the only place to play Clown 's
Doesn't mean it's inaccurate; you can get pretty reliable results from fairly small sample sizes. The question is, what factors (if any) would skew Steam's numbers relative to the overall population?

Does anyone really get their jollies off bot gameplay these days? I honestly thought it was a thing of the past to make up for our lack of internet connections or PC's that can handle a good size multi.

Nowadays, bots don't cut it IMO. Heck, in Counter Strike GO, you do a warmup round with bots until all players join the matchup (5vs5), and man do those bots suck. I can't wait till they all disappear and get filled with real players. Makes me forget the days I actually enjoyed messing around with the bad AI bots in games.

With all that said, I think this patch will bring me back to BF4 after quite a hiatus I went on after falling back in love with CS Go.
I'll take bots over the average server inhabitant any day. They don't grief, they don't team stack, they don't rage quit, they don't idle, they don't sing into the mic, they just play the game.

We, from nVidia, have worked closely with CDProject to give GeForce owners the perfect gaming experience with The Witcher 3. CDProject informed us of their image quality downgrade to give console owners a better experience (to quote a console owner: "Waaaaah! My PS4 ruuuuuuuules! Witcher 3 must look bad or even better worse on a pc than on my PS4! Waaaaaaah!"), and therefore our new Witcher 3 gaming enhancement drivers will underclock your GPU and turn off half of your video card memory. Experience the same frame stuttering that proud console owners will love! Remember: We at nVidia and CDproject LOVE pc gamers!
As a console gamer, I really don't get this. Where are these people complaining when a PC version looks better than a console version? Do they actually exist, or are you just assuming that that's what we think?

In a real space sim they should actually just disable mouse and keyboard as soon as you leave the main menu and the game engine starts loading. Fuck the casual n00bs who can't fly for shit!


^ zero sarcasm included by the way. Seriously. Fuck casual n00blets who want a Space Invaders action clickfest or Call of Duty in space instead of a sim.

HOTAS FTW! It's the only way. The only pure way for the enlightened ones. The way of the pros. My way...
So I assume that you're flying FA off 100% of the time? I mean, fuck casual n00bs who can't handle Newtonian physics from the moment they undock, right? This is a space sim, not casual trash like X-Wing, Wing Commander, or Freespace!

You are joking, but a USB drive delivery option seems like a good idea. 100GB is a mighty big download.
USB distribution has been included in pledge packages from the beginning.

"Sadly, as consoles took over"
Which Descent game is he thinking of that wasn't on consoles? Even its weird cousin Forsaken was on consoles.

The whole point of criticism isn't to force developers to do things differently. It's to convince them to want to do better.

Not everyone has the same idea of what is "better." Some people are very opposed to violence in video games and don't think violent games should be developed. Should developers all strive to remove violence from their games?

Is that "better"?

Developers are free to create what they want, and consumers are free to purchase what they want. That's how this works. If games you find offensive are selling big numbers, then what? Should those customers have their favorite games discontinued or sanitized because your feelings are hurt?
The developers themselves still get to decide what's better. There's a bit in Console Wars about how Tom Kalinske thought about the criticism violence in games was receiving and felt uncomfortable with what he was helping to produce. Should he not have been allowed to hear that criticism or have those doubts?

The tide of history, is not on your side.

The "tide of history" is going to do what, exactly? Remove all tropes from video games? Remove developers right to create whatever the fuck they want even if it offends some people? Because that's the "side" most of us here are on.

What is it you see the "tide of history" bringing us in terms of games?
Remember the change Ken Levine made to BioShock Infinite after a team member protested a religious element of the game? Was that a loss of creative freedom?

The whole point of criticism isn't to force developers to do things differently. It's to convince them to want to do better.

Which specific feminist are you thinking of that proclaims it's okay to lie about rape?
Take your pick. Remember the UAV case? After it came out as fake, various feminists said it doesn't matter. It was okay to do this because "rape culture." Remember the case with Meg Lanker-Simons? Same deal. You can find the "even if it's fake, it's still true." Comments and stories on both of them.
Precisely the answer I was looking for. Now, how were those comments received? Were those individuals held up as standard-bearers for feminism, or publicly decried as extremists?
