If Derek and Chris ever met in a room, the time space continuum would collapse under the weight of two egos and a black hole would open and suck in all the donations people could ever make to close it.

It's an online game and run by Blizzard, so there will be absolutely NO MAP HACKS or other CHEATING in this game. They did this before to save the Massive Single Player Online Role Playing Game called Diablo III, and that worked like a charm. Didn't it? No cheating in D3, right? Never ever!

And then there were some fanboys on this forum saying that since it's the Unreal engine, the FPS part would be easy cake. Like looking for the line "FPS Mode=0" in the engine and changing it to "FPS Mode=1". Guess those guys are learning it the hard way that a) there is a difference between reality and fanatism and b) to never trust the snake oil salesman!
It's the Crysis not the Unreal engine. Not that it changes your point

Thanks for correcting me. The heat... I should postpone further comments.

The feature creep that fanboys said did not exist is taking its toll.

5. Re: Mafia 3 Domains Ratted Out Jun 29, 2015, 12:38 El Pit
 
I loved and finished both Mafia games. It was a shame that they had this huge cities but not enought (side) missions to really use that world they had created.

I wish they would do it like GTA, but in the 1930s/1940s (and without the horrible flight control scheme of GTA).

You mean to say that a crappy knock-off of Dark Souls sold fewer copies than the real deal? You're right, the DRM really doesn't matter! Rolleyes
It really does not
If you want a game to succeed, it does not matter if you use DRM or not. There are other factors you have to consider, like generating awarness, catering to your target group and so on.

DRM ist just make believe for the investors. A show, so that you can fulfill your obligations to them: "Look, we are effin serious about our products. We've done EVERYTHING to ensure commercial success, even if its utter bullshit!"

Thanks for your repeated OPINION. Got any facts to support it?

Theres a lot of evidence, that piracy has only a very minor influence on sales, be it positve or negatve.
There are other factors, which determine the commercial success of a game. DRM or no DRM isnt one of them.

So, first you say piracy might or might not have an influence on sales and then you conclude by saying it does not. Also, I'm interested in this "lot of evidence". Any NEUTRAL sources?

It's good if the game is not cracked in the first four weeks. IT IS GOOD. It's the time most games are making most of their money.
Of course, not every pirated copy means a lost sale. True. But some do. How many? I think that differs largely from product to product. But saying that nobody who pirates a game would not buy it if he could not pirate it is bs, and you know that. It's what pirates say and their parrots.

Free DLCs? Who do these people behind games like Dying Light and Witcher 3 with their free dlcs believe they are? Good Christians giving stuff away for free? Kotick and others must be laughing hard on their way to the bank counting all that nice money they made with loads and loads of dlcs! Nickel and dime is the future!

Seriously: Great sense of humor and very kind way to support their game even months after release by the Dying Light team. Thanks, guys.

Sadly the result may be, let's just not release on pc at all because it's too easy for people to get refunds.

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.

Actually it's more of a wake up call to console porters that can't be bothered to even try to make a decent port. And if they decide to not port other titles--GOOD RIDDANCE!!

When Witcher 3 ran like molasses after release and before the quickly incoming patches, what would have happened with all the refunds? CD Project and GOG with them going down the drain because of thousands of refunds? Or when GTA IV was released and had HUGE frame rate issues after release, would people have clicked the "I want my money back" button and therefore the next GTA games would have become console exclusive games? Who knows... But the refund system is new and one release had to become the heart and center of the new drama. And here it is! Things will cool down and people will come to their senses soon. The game will be patched (like so many others were after being released in bad shape) and should be fine. The drama will die down.

Either do it like Rockstar or don't do it at all.

BWAHAHAHA! Yes, flying with kb/m in Rockstar's GTA is GREAT. Right? RIGHT?! Laugh2

The Batman games have far better kb/m controls. And do you remember how great that GTA IV port performed on pc after release? no? Alzheimer a lot?

At least Rocksteady has proven to understand how to implement a very good keyboard/mouse control scheme in their ports. Kb/m is much better in the Batman games than in e.g. GTA (flying with kb/m is HORRIBLE in the GTA games). I loved the other Batman games (Origins was a not as good as the predecessors but still alright) and will wait for this one to be fixed.

Damn, what a loss. The first soundtrack I ever bought (back in the 80s on vinyl) was his for "Aliens". Great soundtrack, great composer. Rest in peace, Mr. Horner, I loved your music.

Yeah you could almost call it a demonstration of some kind, a 'demo' if you will. What a novel idea?!

Exactly! Don't fall for a demo or even free levels that are not in the final game or stuff. We don't want this!

InBlack, please join Slick, CJParker and a few others under the bridge. They're really missing you down there.
