I don't think "former IW Dev" holds the same clout as it used to, at least it shouldn't.

Saying you've made the same game for the past seven years with little innovation or technical development isn't really impressive. You developed a golden goose and have yet to create another.

PC Games! Now you can buy them while they aren't even done!

I seriously have no clue who they're even trying to reach with this. The people interested in early access games will really most likely get them through digital distribution. Confused parents and casual gamers who still buy retail copies aren't even likely to understand what this early access stuff means, and they'll be upset when they find out the game they thought they bought is actually a barebones alpha.

Exactly. If I'm buying a game from a store I'm fully expecting a finished product. A threshold is being crossed and Uber is going to get a lot of bad press out of this (maybe a good thing?). That said, this technically is a better deal for the buyer than preordering the game and, like preorders, the publisher also makes a sale before the bad reviews come out

Last time I checked EA releases and unfinished Battlefield game every few years. At least these guys are being honest and saying its not done.

They are a small company and I'm pretty sure they need money to feed their families like the rest of us. People seem to villify companies that take the quick pay day and sign on with a big publisher, but if they try to finance themselves with advanced sales then they are being deceiving.

They will probably fool a few people into buying it thinking its a complete game, but that is not their fault. A fool and his money...

So as a console player you’re already getting by far the best version we can ship.

The problem I have with it is that they've hurt the competitive part of the game

I don't like how you equate "competitive" with "less options". If anything the addition of new weapons and strategies has infinitely increased the strategic depth of TF2.

You just can't see past the hats.

In his defense its hard to see past the Towering Pillar of Hats.

I'd be happy if it ran at even 30FPS on my (fairly capable) PC. As it stands there are specific areas where the frame rate just fucking nosedives (bridge in act 3 being the worst offender).

Diablo 3 performance gets worse every patch, its like a game where technical development is moving backwards.

Screw 4K, when can we reliably stream in 1080p? I'm sure cable companies would love to offer 4k channels for an extra $75 a month though.

I'm sure the Dutch taxpayers are immensely grateful for your 'work', BREIN.

Paid for by Hollywood, which ultimately comes out of our pockets in the form of higher licensing fees to Netflix, Redbox, increased costs of bluray discs etc.

Burned by the stock market? I'm sure you will get plenty of sympathy from the rest of the country...

What they are doing is simple:
1.Company pays dividends on revenue.
2.Company devalued by stock holder selling stock at reduced prices.
3.Stock holders are so mad that they sue for a percentage of the revenue of the company (further devaluing their stock). Lawsuit about the lawsuit devaluing the company? Why not?!
4.Then gives a large percentage to the lawyers who run the lawsuit.
5. Don't profit!

3) Yes. Yes they are. It's good customer service. Do you know what happens to companies with good customer service? Their growth increases. Do you know what happens to companies with bad customer service? They die out. Offering things your customers want, that makes them happy, will lead to more revenues. That increase in revenue is almost certain to outpace the fraud. Or, you can let a few morons completely ruin the experience for everyone else because you're too shortsighted to look at the big picture of increased growth and only look at the easier-to-measure losses from a few morons

Because Steam really has an issue with growth..

And just because a company bends over backwards to help out the few impulsive people who buy without researching does not mean it will be a profitable company. JCPenny recently switched to a consumer friendly "lower prices without the sales" model and also promotes No hassle returns. Return anything, even without a receipt... They must be raking in the cash.

I don't get the "circle jerk" comment. Almost every person in that article had nothing but bad things to say about Steam. He was the only person that didn't and he was just indifferent... He is also wrong, you CAN play games in offline mode.

You are placing your blame at the wrong company. It sounds like you should be pissed at is the ISP who has no competition, huge barriers of entry and as such strong arms their customers into over priced, limited plans (a true monopoly).

This is like complaining that horses should be our main mode of transportation for everyone because fuel prices in your area are too high.

Steam won the content distribution war fair and square, there is nothing stopping you from using a different provider. The same apparently can not be said about your ISP.


Anyone that thinks Steam is a true monopoly needs to do a little research and look up Standard Oil (a terrible Monopoly) and AT&T (an arguably pretty good Monopoly).

For the record, you can run WC3 at higher resolutions and with Widescreen support. Google it. It still holds up pretty well (except the extremely close camera).

"We realize our game is not good enough to warrant a $60 price tag on the PC because the variety, quality and price of the competition means we will never be profitable. Console games sell and retain their $60 price for almost their entire lifespan, even if its terrible. So we choose to play it safe"

Fixed.

I think ports to the PC are still going to be an issue. "Next Gen" still can't match "current Gen" PC's in terms of graphical power. Just like this generation, to make a PC game really stick out will require a significant effort. If they try to release the same game on all three systems the PC version will look mediocre compared to the PC exclusives released at the same time and will be ignored as "just another port".
