4GBs of VRAM, another poorly optimized PC game?

Just a shitty engine (ID Tech 5)

Worth noting I hated that engine in literally every game that used it so far. Non dynamic world lighting, baked static geometry ugly as fuck textures..... no thanks

ID tech 5 is a bane of the industry. All these games ruined from the start.

Can you play this with only two players?
Or does it add cpu controlled guys or something?

This looks horrible and it's a damn shame. I liked the original, but this free to play mmo-lite bs is exactly what I don't want. I hope they still plan on making a real sequel.

Awesome! The GTAIV first person mod turned the immersion up to 11.

The Witcher Wild Hunt isn't coming out until February 2015. But other than that, yeah, it's an embarrassment of riches this year.

There's a lot of games that I really want to play in there, but then I think about it and realize that it's been a long time since I've been "REALLY" excited about a game. I mean a huge game with crazy features. Not a clone of another game, but with a different story and settings... Know what I mean?

Friends and I had a ball in the (admittedly somewhat substandard) Dead Island, so I think even if the SP has the same dodgy stuff in it, this will be a decent co-op game.

Looks more in line with Lichdom: Battlemage than Dead Island. I'm guessing Lichdom style game albeit more fleshed out, but will still feel like a digital download $30-$40 type of game.

Yeah I definitely get a lichdom vibe. Linear melee action. It looks fun though...

I've got a feeling that Minecraft just died, at least for PC.

Minecraft for PC hasn't been supported by Mojang in years. Modders have been doing it a million times better. I wouldn't worry about the current version of Minecraft.

"There’s no reason for the development, sales, and support of the PC/Mac......versions of Minecraft to stop"
What? There are MANY reasons to stop the development if Microsoft owns it. There's no way Microsoft would release a game for PS3-4... Explain this to me.

DO NOT WANT. I want PC games with PC features and no input delay... Keep console games on consoles. Just do Steam streaming if you want to Stream.

So they removed the mouse support in the UI (which was in the original game). The dev rep can be quoted as saying, "we only had time to do mouse controls or mod support, and we chose mod support."

seriously?

Loved the original game, see absolutely no reason to get this. This is a weird idea that they had.

Eh. The extra hires are lost weight, because they aren't usually trying to push 3 platforms out the door at once. Plus, it takes a while to hire people (months, usually), takes a while for them to get ramped up and understand what they're doing, takes someone to train them and help them get ramped up, etc.

And then, when the project finishes and there's nothing in the pipeline to keep that many people occupied, particularly in QA, they get laid off and some PR goes out about rightsizing and blah blah blah.

Or, instead, you just outsource and avoid much of that, but lose control over the quality of the product.

I'm saying all this because I've worked somewhere where they did it. It worked and people didn't stand around playing catch.

The people working on the PC compatibility stuff are different people. This is simply a planning issue. A ton of other devs release all platforms at the same time successfully. That's because it's planned properly

Not necessarily, no. Q/A is done many times by the same in-house teams and simply takes longer on a platform with more hardware variation. Different companies have different processes for this kind of thing. A 2 month delay is just fine with me if the port is solid. A lot of other companies release at the same time and it's not always to our benefit.

There will be plenty of stuff to play around to fill in the gaps anyway *shrug*. I'll be lucky to be finishing off games from November at that point.

You're right, not necessarily. Rockstar is huge though, you'd think they'd do things properly... Devs that release all platforms at the same time, just plan it in advance. There's no excuse really. I also prefer they give it two more months to get a solid port. But that's not what I think they're doing. They're giving it two more months to give us a crappy port :p

You're Rockstar. Do you hold up the next-gen releases till past Christmas to make sure they get launched at the same time as the PC release, or do you push the PC release out the door before its ready so that it launches with the other platforms?

I'm sure they planned it in advance. But some things are exceedingly difficult to rush without dropping quality, and Black Friday waits for no one.

I obviously am not Rockstar, but if I was Rockstar, I'd plan it in advance, hire the people I need and have all platforms released at the same time... The extra hires aren't lost weight, they can help with other projects. They have the cash...

Why the hell 2 months later? Exclusive is out the window so what gives? That's some serious lame sh!t and doesn't make sense when they could capitalize on the holiday sales. Weird.

Eitherway, stupid move by Rockstar.

You have two pieces of hardware with static innards, and one piece of hardware that could have anything in it. Guess which one gets tested last?

What I think is that Rockstar doesn't really care. They basically did nothing on the PC version's interface and compatibility and will do most of it within two months. Which will lead to a bit of a mess, like GTA 4. Still loved the game though...

Loved Dead Island. I can't understand how an adult can look at a CGI trailer and think that that's how the game will be... Maybe I'm just cynical? I was pleasantly surprised by the open world and the really good atmosphere. Absolutely looking forward to dying light.
