If I'm considering buying a game, I want to know how good it is now. Reviews from a launch fiasco aren't going anywhere but that's not particularly useful information to potential customer a year later.

Learn the art of knowing what really make a game good!

Does this correlate closely with what games you like? I'm just wondering if maybe your tastes happen to be perfectly educated?

Oh boy, somebody in 2016 still rides the ol` straw horse? Somebody pinch me. It was always the get-go wisecrack for lame forum warriors but come on, it`s beyond tedious. Ask a smarter cousin, he might lend you a new toy, some sort of plastic saber to rattle here, perhaps.

What has Quake to do with Ubisoft? Nothing. Maybe because my comment meant to point out that people were always cheating and companies were never able to wipe it out. But hey, you got your lil` TRUSTED CLIENT MODEL 111111!1 to jerk off to, so let`s not interrupt that bit of fun before bedtime, shall we?

So because people have always cheated, developers shouldn't bother trying to reduce it? We'll never stop all murders and murders have always occurred so why bother even trying?

Sorry, that's nonsense. Ubisoft should have anticipated the problem with using a trusted client model and should have realised that this is really bad design. That's their mistake. They won't get rid of all cheaters but they should make a decent effort to reduce the problem.

It's not as if the problems with trusting the client are unknown. This is very basic stuff. It's why every website I used to make treated every single piece of data from the client as if it is radioactive - that data is a hack until proved otherwise.

At one point during The Force Awakens, I forgot that BB-8 wasn't Wall-E. It was beeping and booping and for a split second I expected the 'dialogue' to continue in Wall-E's style.

Ball-E.

News Comments > Fallout 4 Mods Open Beta
4. Re: Fallout 4 Mods Open Beta Apr 27, 2016, 18:24 Quboid
 
"For Fallout 4, our goal was to make Mods easier to monetise and accessible to more potential customers than ever before - for both the creators and us. But not Valve"

This seems like the first step towards their own mod shop, where mods are cross-platform and Valve don't get any percentage. I don't mind Valve being bypassed but paid mods are a Pandora's box.

Referencing horse armour in the video doesn't help...

Just gave it a quick test - I can't sign in. The "Sign In" button activates but clicking on it does nothing.

The Vive looks like the better headset but I'm a bit concerned about this room-space stuff. I'd rather stay seated if possible so I hope this is optional.

There are people whom are gnashing their teeth and screaming "But it isn't like MoO2!" No, no it isn't but MoO2 had its own glaring set of flaws that most people overlook due to their rose tinted nostalgia.

Thank you, I was wondering that. I only know MOO by reputation (2 = good, 3 = bad) so I'm not concerned about whether it replicates MOO2 particularly faithfully. Particularly as, as you say, these old games aren't as perfect as we tend to remember.

I don't mind it being softcore. Stellaris will be deeper, and there's always Aurora if anyone wants to go crazy. What is DU?

Ooh dear, really?

Is the problem that it's a bad 4X game, or specifically that it's not like the good old MOO games?

Yes!

Have you played it? How is it shaping up?

From the videos I have seen, it is coming along well. Much more MOO2 than MOO3.

I can easily understand people holding Kotaku in low regard but thinking they are unethical trash while considering One Angry Gamer to be worth reading is bizarre because the criticisms apply tenfold to them. It would be people spending half their time online complaining about over-sensitive people and the other half getting incredibly easily offended over minor stuff ... oh right.

The number of famous people has presumably increased a lot continuously for a few decades so maybe 2016 isn't a bad year but a drop of things to come.

There's a cheery thought.

aww man i love a good flaming tennis match. wonder who won.

Blue. Blue always wins.

Being serious, I'd guess Blue loses most here. I can't imagine he enjoys deleting posts and I'm sorry I got dragged down and beaten with experience.

I think that's the first post I've ever had deleted. My account is 15 years old and it's finally lost its virginity.

That sucks. I wasn't aware of the always online drm in this game.
Thanks for the heads up

Was that something added specifically for release? In the beta, you could stay offline...


Actually there is an offline mode, sorry for the wrong info.

It looks like you can play the mission offline. The extra challenges require you to be online and it maintains separate save files so you can't do a mission offline and then access the challenges.

Hitman (speaking calmly ftw!) is at its best when each mission can be taken on its own as much overarching plot detracts from the cold, dispassionate nature of 47 so going episodic isn't as bad here as it would be in many games. Changing it to episodic late in development is a worry, as is always-online DRM which apparently features single-player insta-kick if the connection drops a limited offline mode.

I'd probably buy episode 1 now if it didn't have that always-online crap.

(Edit: oops, there is an offline mode.)
