News Comments > Batman Console DLC This Month
4. Re: Batman Console DLC This Month Jul 3, 2015, 14:13 NegaDeath
 
Just to cite precedent from the previous game Origins on the commitment to fixing things:

"The team is currently working hard on the upcoming story DLC and there currently are no plans for releasing another patch to address the issues that have been reported on the forums," a community manager said in a post on the game's official forums.

Note that at the time there were still reports of game ending progression bugs. There was actually a user in the forums offering his services in editing save files to get people unstuck since WB was so unhelpful.

An option that defaults to on. Something people here would understand how to turn off but the non-tech savvy would have their eyes glaze over if someone tried explaining it to them. If it was opt-in there would be no problem, and with the backlash the news is getting hopefully they will change that.

Really Microsoft? Is that really such a problem that needed solving so much so as to introduce the security risks involved?

"Hey Joe what's your wifi password?"
"This 5 second conversation is too frustrating, please set your phone to give the password to everyone you know so I don't have to waste 5 seconds in the future. Thanks MS!"

Should friends of my friend get a copy of the spare housekey I gave him too? And blissfully ignorant of all the people who don't understand what their computer is doing they decide to have it default to on. What brainiac greenlit this?

Edit:"Some WiFi hotspots ask you to accept the terms of use in a web browser, provide additional information or do both before you can connect. WiFi Sense can do these things on your behalf to get you connected quickly."

Hoo Boy.

When the statement was made it was accurate. Release dates are targets, not factual statements. Delays happen.
Such a statement can excuse any amount of delays. Probably was uttered at 3D Realms numerous times. A good project manager wouldn't make incorrect public statements that often.

theyarecomingforyou wrote on Jul 1, 2015, 12:48:
Then why are there so many posts on the official forums whenever there's a delay?
There are posts from individuals criticizng. Any post with criticism of any form is pounded into oblivion by hundreds of members of the CR defense force, exactly what InBlack was talking about. Not that this is unique to this game but the severity seems to scale with financial investment. Probably related to post-purchase rationalization.

CIG has quoted Brook's Law specifically in reference to the delays. They used the "nine women can't make a baby in one month" to point out that adding more people to a project won't necessarily shorten the time it takes. Here's the link: 10 For The Producers (Episode 2).

Letter from the Chairman - $19 Million:
"...the more funds we can raise in the pre-launch phase, the more we can invest in additional content (more ships, characters etc.) and perhaps more importantly we can apply greater number of resources to the various tasks to ensure we deliver the full functionality sooner rather than later."

Derp.

Wish there were some two player heists added. My buddy and I haven't had much (no) success with randoms joining us. Doesn't have to be fancy, just let us rob some more small banks or upscale shops.

"Potential owners and operators can rest easy: the Starliner is a ship designed to pay for itself!"

Wait, wait wait. It'll "pay back" your real money with fake money. That is not paying you back. This makes as much sense as giving the dealer of a monopoly game real money to buy a hotel. And even then it's a tangible object for a game that has actually been finished.

No. Just no.

That's more or less what I did ever since I found out that my kickstarter ship is basically obsolete before it was even flyable in an alpha.

At this point, I'm only in it for Squadron 42.

And Squadron 42 is the only thing they haven't show off in any form since the original kickstarter video. No really guys it's coming this year!

Disclaimer: "This year" is in Valve time. Plus 6 months. Definitely before the heat death of the universe, but only if they don't remake the engine from scratch again. Buy some ships!

As much as I loved Titan mode in 2142 I just can't see them working on two sci-fi takes on Battlefield at the same time. Honestly I'd rather see Vietnam come back, I miss having music playing from my heli.

It still feels too much like Spore all over again. Amazing demos, massive universe, yet utterly shallow in the end. I hope I'm wrong but this nagging feeling won't go away.

The previous game Origins still has a lot of bugs. They patched the biggest game breaking bugs and told fans to expect no more fixes, they were now spending all their time on DLC. I don't see how a rational person can give them the benefit of the doubt when they release an even more broken game the next time around. This thing doesn't need a patch, it needs an overhaul on par with if not bigger than AC:Unity did. It isn't just performance there is stuff completely missing from the game that is present on consoles. Something like that doesn't get fixed quickly.

All the bitching from the PC gaming community over this is going to kill the PC gaming community. Lucky we even got a port in this day and age.

Why exactly are we lucky to receive a broken port in this day and age? The PC and consoles are closer now in technical design than at any point prior. It's using an engine that has long since had the bugs worked out on the PC platform. There have been three previous games to practice the porting process on. They even wholesale removed advanced graphics features from the PC port and it still runs like ass on all but the most powerful hardware. This shit should be getting better not worse. Thank you sir may I have another? F that noise.

I get the frustration, I want a new Metroid. We haven't had one in HD yet and with the artistic talent Retro displayed with the Prime trilogy that's a damn shame. If I were in charge I'd greenlight a new one and while fans are waiting also arrange for an HD port of the Trilogy digital re-release that existing customers would get for free or a small upgrade charge. But this petition is just childish.

Edit: Also keep it away from the team that did Other M. *shudder*

Pre-order cost in Canada is $80 for the basic and $90 for the "Deluxe" edition that only have two emotes as exclusives. I know our dollar has dropped compared to USD but it still feels like a ripoff. I think I'll stick with my no pre-order pledge and wait for a PC price drop and/or reviews. Too bad too, that Hoth demo from E3 pushed all my right buttons.

back on point though,

what's the deal with kerrigan? wasn't she turned into a human at the end of the terran campaign? and then she's back to dreadlock'd she-bitch for the zerg campaign? was the zerg campaign a flashback or something? what am i missing?

She intentionally re-dreadlock'd herself partway through the Zerg campaign, minus the evil.

I've been holding off buying a PS4 and this show has pretty much shattered that resolve. FF7 Remake? I can't believe they're actually doing it. That was one big white whale they just revealed, do I dare revive the long dead dream of Chrono 3?

I look forward to seeing how the writers manage to escape the potential telepathic glowing green machine-people ending of 3. Maybe if you import that save they just stare at each other during conversations?

Snark aside I do still have a weakness for the series. Look forward to more.
