News Comments > The Sims 4 Create A Sim Demo
4. Re: The Sims 4 Create A Sim Demo Aug 13, 2014, 16:54 wasteoid
 
Not really surprised, just really annoyed. Back in the day (old geyser mode), demos were freely distributed to showcase/tease a game. Now, everything is either behind a wall of some sort or in some me-too app store (origin, steam, etc).

At some point, I just give up after too many flaming hoops to jump through. Yes, I know it's just another piece of software to install, but it's completely unnecessary to try a game demo.

I'd prefer to buy a game and then play the cracked version to avoid the extra garbage.

Sheesh! Not only do you have to create an account on their site, but you have to download and install Origin on your machine to download a stupid demo. Pass.

How about some fucking pictures of the game instead of slathering 'BUY NOW!' on the front page?
They don't have pictures yet, all they have is an idea of a game, BUY IT NOW!!

According to their website, they have been playing a working version for months, but they lack artwork and other "polish."

Perhaps they split out the target platforms to boost next year's financials.

This game will be brilliant if we get to see Ripley in her panties..it's the one common factor in the first two movies (which were ace) that was missing from the other films.

They would have to be granny panties, since she's now 64 years old.

From the title, I thought it was going to be an Adventure Time game.

I don't' see them making an OUT OF THE BLUE announcement next week......that being said, I own both console versions, and will likely purchase the PC one as well.

Why on earth would you need so many versions of the same game?! I can see holding out for the PC version (better graphics, mod-ability), but is there any gameplay difference?

Must be nice to have money just laying around collecting dust.

Gaming needs more procedurally-generated content.

I can't count how many times I've played the Civilization games, since every play through is different, but typically FPS games (Half-Life) or games like Skyrim with preset stories/maps get played twice at most, to see the good/bad endings.

I wish the GTA games allowed you to create your own character, like in the Saints Row games. I wonder if they restrict players to only preset characters due to limiting the player interactions or animations. There has to be some good reason for not allowing full character customization these days.

Only days ago, Major Nelson was interviewed and appeared to argue that it was not easy to disable the 24-hour DRM check:

Obviously, it was as easy as the interviewer claimed, just a switch to flip (asshole mode = false).

I *heart* STARWARS MMO!

Hows that?

Not nearly convincing enough! You have to call everyone else haters who bash your beloved game, and then tell them to get bent!


Antihater paradox...If you hate the haters, do you actually...love them?

There is a very thin line between love and hate. Also, I genuinely believe you have to have some core of love for a thing you hate passionately. Otherwise, why would anyone expend that much energy and effort?

The opposite of love isn't hate, it's apathy.

I'm calling bullshit. What kind of last minute change could cause all these issues? I'm thinking that their was a major screw up. Either CD sent them a very old version to optimize, or Nvidia just didn't bother until now to check it out.

Okay, so now you’re a resident expert and actually work at NVidia and know without a doubt that they are lying to us? So tell me, what are the winning numbers in this weekend’s lottery?
