News Comments > Star Citizen Executive Producer Departs [Updated]
11. Re: Star Citizen Executive Producer Departs? Jul 6, 2015, 10:23 Quinn
 
Not sure what I wanna see more: an awesome game, once it's done 3 years from now, or this shite turning out as the worst con-debacle of the century. All the popcorn in the world wouldn't be enough in case of the latter, and that's coming from a guy who was looking forward to this game once. A long time ago.

I'm so fucking confused right now. A few months ago I saw a gameplay video with dev commentary ACTUALLY showing the singleplayer campaign. Now they're showing the campaign too, or so the title states, but it's dungeon master multiplayer stuff.

What? I don't get it.

What I want is a singleplayer experience like NWN or NWN2. The gameplay vid from a few months promised this. Now, I have literally no idea what to expect anymore. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? This was my most anticipated game. Now I don't know what to expect anymore.

I'm an entirely different gamer than you guys with entirely different hopes and fears. Personally, I fear the focus is in fact too much on the multiplayer / player designed stuff. My hope is that the campaign is awesome, stuffed full with deep lore about anything R.A. Salvatore and Drizzt. An earlier stream pleased me greatly, with references to Wulfgar and Deudermont.

Same with my job. I work for Samsung. Tech specialist and manager. Their TV's have one huge screw up of a feature and although I singlehandedly got it reported all the way back to Korea, the new line still had the feature.

If you have a 2014+ Samsung Smart TV... Turn off Samsung Instant On
I don't have one...but why? What's wrong?

It's ths cause of most issues.. Like apps that won't work, internet that fails to connect, black screens, no sound, etc. At the office, when customers call with issues on TVs that feature Samsung Instant On, it's now the procedure for agents to tell the customer to turn that off pronto -- yup, still on by default..

Well DUH.

Stop preordering shit.

Typically I would agree with you Creston, but WBIE and Rocksteady's track record was pretty damn good up till this point.

Rocksteady yes, WBIE no. While Ark City wasn't as bad as this, it was still plenty bad and that too was WBIE's fault. It still boggles the mind in this day and age that there are suits stupid enough to think that pushing a game out the door to save a few bucks on QA is going to save them money in the long run. Boggles...the...mind.

It's almost never the fault of not enough QA. QA finds the bugs are reports them, but the decision is made not to fix them before the launch. They either want to use the devs to add new features, or haven't hired enough devs to fix enough bugs in time and don't want to push the date.

This. I worked QA almost 20 years ago for EA. Not much has changed since then. Games still shipped even back then with hundreds if not thousands of known bugs. Developers frequently liked to blame debug code on the problems, which almost never turned out to be accurate.

However, we had our own in-house QA Tech department that did all their own hardware configuration testing...and they were damn good. No clue if they still have that though.

Had this debate before. Obviously you're not sensitive to hitching as some others here aren't either. Show me a videoclip of you driving through the city and I bet a full keg of beer that there's hitching.

Let's just make something clear here...I called Rattlehead out on his bullshit and he messaged me on Steam freaking out about it being none of my business.

If you make your statements about your own intentions or actions on Blues, it becomes the business of anyone that reads it. You open yourself up to criticism.

Rattlehead has been posting for a week about how the game runs like shit on his system and that he was going to be getting a refund (kinda sounded like he had already) and pirating the game. This is all things he stated on Blues for anyone to read. Turns out, he was still progressing through the game and anyone on his friends list could see that.

So he either he a) Didn't get a refund despite all his posturing about it, or b) Did pirate it and was dumb enough to give the pirated copy internet access. I called him on it.

Turns out he never paid for the game to begin with. He got it with his video card like many others did...and he thought he'd get a refund from Steam for something he never paid Steam for, never mind completely illogical. /facepalm

Does someone getting this free excuse Rocksteady or WB over the state of the game for some people? No. But it really does go to show the sheer stupidity of some folks.

Rattlehead wrote on Jun 24, 2015, 20:58:
WB has just suspended all sales of the game. Just unbelievable. Of course they won't issue refunds, as they have our money.

I got a refund from Steam, and will pirate this game.

Rattlehead wrote on Jun 24, 2015, 10:24:
...I got a refund on Steam...

This port is nearly unplayable...

So within the same day, you state that they won't issue refunds, twice you already got a refund, and once that you will pirate it. And you stated it was unplayable, yet you've still been progressing through the game.

Referring to the other thread on this topic...this is why I take the whiney bitches and their complaints with a massive grain of salt. There are rational complaints and behaviour and then there is irrational complaints and behaviour.


Fucking beautiful work you did there, Krovven. Calling ppl on their bullshit like this puts a grin on my face! xD

Please. Krovven's apparent MO is to make public that which should be kept private. He did it before during our argument to the poor sod who asked him to chill and he's doing it again here. What does he gain by calling him out? Granted, I don't agree with the little erchin and he pretty much pissed in my Corn Flakes out of the blue and for no reason, but still, I'm not going to go into his personal life and air dirty laundry.

God forbid anyone should see what's on my 4 terabytes worth of hard drive space. I have no problem with admitting I pirate games, if only because I live paycheck to paycheck and they don't make demos anymore. More of an excuse but so be it. I do it because I can? Yeah, probably that too. So if he went over to, oh, say, Pastebin, and looked up my hard drive directory listing (yes, it's there) and came back here and lambasted me for it, I wouldn't be pissed because he looked for it, I'd be pissed because he came back here, to a totally unrelated place and publicly gave me shit about it while trying to look like he's doing it for the 'greater good'. Because, why else would he be? Attention? Well, yeah, that too, obviously. And you sit here and slap him on the back for it?! What the hell is wrong with you, Quinn?! This isn't fucking high school, grow the fuck up!


=-Rigs-=

Look, IMO, anything you do or show out in the open for the world to see is for the world to share. If you want to cheat on your wife, don't post it on facebook. If you claim the Batman game is unplayable and you got a refund, don't go play it on Steam while you're online for everyone to see.

What Krovven did wasn't as invasive as you make it out to be. From his story, Rattlehead confronted him on Steam, which is how Krovven found this stuff out.

I also applaud Krovven for it because generally Rattlehead sounds like an aggressive drunk in most of the comments he posts on Blues. So who gives a fuck that he's been called on his hypocrisy and lies?

Ah, this game might have what GTAV missed so horribly much: A good, thrilling story.

Due to the crazy good reception of GTAV, Rockstar will have learned that they can keep that 16 years old kid in their basement, writing their crap for 5 bucks an hour with his dick in one hand. So.. my hopes are dead for GTAVI in that regard.

Mafia 1 had a moving story. So had Mafia 2 (although I think they did too little with the city sandbox). Mafia 3 will probably be a freaking must-have!

Yeah



With that reasoning you shouldn't complain about anything anymore, ever, unless it has to so with famine, sickness or death.

Way to miss his sarcasm. Did you read passed "First World Problem"?


There's no sarcasm in it. We're all living in first world countries here, I think, so the entire comment is redundant. We'll basically always have it better than people in second or third world countries, doesn't mean we thus can't complain about stuff measured by our standards. When a grocery store is out of my favorite sandwich spread, I can get annoyed. The person next to me can then say "In africa people die because they don't have anything to eat!". Such a cliche. Again, with that logic first world ppl can't really complain about anything xP

It's not a big deal ofc, but I read no sarcasm in his comment.

No. They complain about people who complain about the game. Not because they think the game is perfect, but because they dont like complaining in general. Their mental state is very fragile, they cannot cope with people being loud and unruly.

Yeah that's pretty much what I gathered from this.

Oh wait, I forgot some of you guys are too smart and too awesome to either just shut up or participate in a valid discussion. Instead -- and I should've known, my fault! -- of course you guys resort to petty and demeaning insults.

If you have me on ignore, Verno, be a man and shut up about my comments. I swear, that pathetic elitist mentality taints this place.

Wow, some of you are really emotionally laden because you obviously nit-picked what I said earlier. I said that the game is a mess. I agreed wih it wholeheartedly. My point was that before the refund policy, the noise would never have gotten this loud, a patch or two would be released and 95% would be happy.

Programming for PC is a horror. I can't speak from experience but I've read interviews with developers. It's because of all the hundreds of different hardware setups and software. A company can never 100% be certain their game will run perfectly on all PC setups -- they need to get post-release feedback patch stuff up. With the refund policy, I believe publishers/developers get hit irrationally hard due to this.

Sure, despite the fact the game does run flawless on my rig now... I do see it's a bad optimized game. My point: It's nothing a patch can't fix and all this deafening noise is crazy.

There is pretty clearly stuttering and hitching in your video (most obvious driving up the ramp to the top street level). I think the issue here is that some people either don't care or can't see it... I don't know. What passes for "acceptable performance" obviously means different things to different people.

I had a friend over the other day and I was bitching about how GTA5 stutters on my PC (almost like a pulse every few seconds) and he looked at me like I had 3 heads, he couldn't see it at all.

That's on my shit PC though... If I had your rig, I don't think I would be OK with the way the game seems to be running.

Side note: the car strafing looks so fuckin cheesy

I'm aware of a hitch around 1:54 or so. Other than that I just don't notice it. The game is well beyond playable unlike what most people have experienced on my system. Is it perfect? No. But it's certainly not the worst port I've ever played. But thats my experience, I'm aware other people are experiencing something far far worse and I'm not defending them, it needs fixed. But my personal experience has been fine.

It's possible that if I had paid 100 dollars for the Premium edition I'd be a little perturbed. But I spent 35 dollars and am having a great time with one of my favorite series.

Watched the vid. At first thought it was the video but the hitching was consistent with the timeline every time. I see hitching, mate. It performs like my game. It annoys me so I guess I'm more sensitive to it. Still,anyone who watches this can't imagine the hit WB is getting,can they? Sure the game runs worse than the old titles but it's also way more ambitious and pretty and huge. Plus, as always a patch will fix performance. Nothing new here, yet the fiasco this is made out to be...!

Refund policy good for us PC gamers? Right. Dream the fuck on.

No, it wont be.

Only the worst of the worst releases risk being a commercial failure because of too much refunds. And thats exactly the business practice we dont want to see anymore on the PC. Anyone else ... when your game is not a complete desaster, you dont have to fear refunds. In fact, people are now being able to take more risks. In the end, with refunds people will spend MORE than without. It is a proven policy in other industry sectors, it will be in the games industry.

Well, lets actually be honest here. Let be really, really clear: A HUGE PART OF THIS FIASCO is the typical PC community cry-baby motherfucking whining. "I want a great looking game to run great on my 2+ years old rig!". Let it be known that the game is gorgeous -- is this mentioned anywhere? The amount of detail is crazy amazing. People with a killer GPU and SSD run this game smoothly too (me too I expect if I redownload it). So is it really such a fiasco? Lets get our feet on the ground and chew on it for a minute... Because, fuck me, the game is gorgeous.

In the days before refunds, this would've been a period of whining.. then a patch.. then everybody happy. Today it's people going crazy, a company getting hit so hard it falls to its knees, and a patch that makes everybody happy except for the company who's rep is raped.

I just don't like this.

This is my huge fear, and i'm fucking stunned hardly anyone seems to realize this. I'd rather like it to be like the old days, one major fuck up port here and there.. another game needing a big patch every now and then.. It sucked but hey, worth the sacrifice of being a PC gamer.

With this refund shit, every impatient fucking moron can just press the refund button any time and my god will it hurt developers more and more before the gaming community will see the fruits of it -- if they ever will and not get completely abandoned first.
