Better to have been cut than to never even be considered. Progress, baby!

Didn't he make a fortune off an early access game?

News Comments > Steam Top 10 Redux
6. Re: Steam Top 10 Redux May 5, 2014, 11:33 Leper
 
Considering the failure Dark Souls 2 proved to be on PC, that 1st position is a real wonder. Apparently this "game" had such a good publicity that it passed no matter how crippled - and this isn't the first time!

Not to mention the total lack of support, I wish I could just get a refund and forget about this mistake.

Had they released that for PC first, they would never have sold so many licences.

Dark Souls 2 on PC is the best experience for the game available. It's a port, but we all knew that. It has better graphics and frame-rate than consoles, so there's not much to complain about there. Some people had crashing issues, but there's ongoing support and patch already. It may not play well on the keyboard/mouse, but that's because it was designed for a console controller.

Feel free to complain about how the game wasn't PC first. That is a true statement.

Why would this mean the end of Dark Souls? I'm pretty sure they're still making money with that franchise.

That's pretty insane. So basically knock two points off any Watch Dogs review.

Any scores above 10 are going to look suspect after this stunt.

It's too late for another MMO.
Wait another generation, then try again.

I am project manager of H1Z1. I read your post and know you are soothsayer. Game is officially canceled. Thank you for sharing your wisdom.

Pretty sure they said they are working on the follow-up to DX:HR. It's just a matter of time before they announce it even if this isn't related.

So do the KS backers get a cut? I mean, it was their investment that launched this thing.

uggh, the embedded Youtube video everyone hates...

If any news deserves a video that takes over the front page, it's DLC for COD: Ghosts!

News Comments > Blizzard Confirms Paid WoW Leveling
8. Re: Blizzard Confirms Paid WoW Leveling Feb 25, 2014, 20:02 Leper
 
Personally $60 to me is less than 2 hours work. Compare this to leveling an entire character to 90, I like the idea.

Look at it from another way: how much work is this on their end? Near zero. You're paying them with 2 hours of what I'm assuming is hard work for an automated process to run in a fraction of a second. That's on top of what you're already giving them every month. And why? I honestly don't know because I don't play this game.

I see Star Wars MMO will actually be profitable, it wasn't a failure.

But.. but... what about all the fools that were saying SWKOTR was a giant failure that wouldn't even be able to recoup a fraction of it's cost? I thought they knew everything about games and business. They sure acted like it.

i would laugh if Thief was delayed past Q3 2014

Prepare to... not laugh, but I'm sure you'll find someone else's setbacks to derive happiness from.

News Comments > DayZ Sells 1M in One Month
9. Re: DayZ Sells 1M in One Month Jan 14, 2014, 11:52 Leper
 
I realize I'm being cynical, but I just wonder if they have any incentive to actually finish the game? They already got their money out of it, and then some, so it'll be interesting to see whether they keep chugging away at it, or in a few months to come it'll just peter out and they go to work on the next project.

It's possible, but if they stopped now they would miss out on possible future revenue. These guys don't have everyone's money yet, including mine. Minecraft never really stopped selling even though it might have seemed like a niche game at first.

Plus, the DayZ team seems like people that enjoy what they do and will continue to do it. We'll see.

I'm optimistic about this. The difference between looking at a screen and being immersed in a world from a audio/visual standpoint is so significant it will be worth whatever limitations the initial consumer product will inevitably have.

No, we didn't ask for more maps, we asked for a random map generator! No sale!

Probably not doable in this engine.

Not to mention difficult to do well (generate quality maps that are playable and fun). I'm sure they looked at it and will look at it again in the future for future expansions or new games. Civilization has always had random maps so you can't say they aren't aware of the idea.

News Comments > SteamOS Announced
53. Re: SteamOS Announced Sep 23, 2013, 15:57 Leper
 
I can't imagine any situations where the context would lead to confusion about whether you're talking about the operating system or the general distress signal.

Scenario 1: A group of old college buddies gather at a remote mountain cabin for a weekend of drinking, hunting and gaming in the winter of 2018. SteamOS (commonly referred to as S.O.S.) is well established and now the choice of LAN gamers due to extensive networking features released by Valve earlier in the year. Despite climate change (or perhaps because of), a terrible storm not seen for decades is bearing down on the area... No, actually I believe you are correct.
