I don't know about those ratios, I remember COD:MW3 had something like 50 million development budget and 200 million marketing budget.

Yeah, it's the theme of the site, and it's what people are objecting to - how over the top it is.

It's funny how those people never complain when Gabe murders Tycho in a brutal fashion, or someone is fed into a wood chipper, or radioactive scorpions bite one of them in the dick, or dogs tear them to pieces or... etc

But a fictional character mentions fictional rape by a fictional dickwolf and "OMG YOU GUYS CONDONE RAPE."

/sigh.

Well, I don't think anyone other than Cutter is saying PA condones it, but I'd also wager there are more people walking around out there that have the lingering memories of being raped than there are that have the lingering memories of being brutally murdered by being fed into a woodchipper.

It gets back to the "triggering" argument that you seem to be misunderstanding.

No, there are actually quite a lot of people saying PA and anyone supporting PA are rape-lovers. Check the people arguing with TotalBiscuit in the last few days. And that's why this whole thing is as big as it is- who the fuck wants to apologize a bunch of nutters like Cutter? Make death threats all day and equate a non-related comic as equivalent to a real life crime, yeah, that's real sane. Fuck em. If it were possible separate the sane people from the insane in the crowd, to have a conversation about it, it would never have gotten this far. But, SJWs gonna SJW.

Too much talk here about the comic. This isn't about the comic, which in context was a pretty good scathing commentary on the lack of morality in video games. This is about their childish and continued insipid response to being criticized.
The criticism is what was stupid and insipid. Let me pose an analogous a scenario:
A: "I believe that the state acted niggardly with the emergency aid and..."

B: "I cannot believe you used that racial slur! I lived through the times when blacks could not drink from white water fountains, and I had thought those days were long gone. I demand you apologize right now!"

A: "Hrm? What? I'm sorry, I don't understand....Oh oh, I see. Now, I assure you, that is not what the word means. I am very much against racism and I urge people right now never to use racial epithets."

C, D, E, F, G: Death threats. Death threats against A's children. Ironic rape threats.

A: "Are you goddamn kidding me? Fuck all y'all. I'm not apologizing for something I didn't do."

C, D, E, F, G: Cutter^2 level of death threats.

A: "Here's a middle finger for you, one for you, and one for you. Here's a bunch of shirts with the goddamn word and it's dictionary definition. Who's with me?!"

H, I, J, K, L: "All right, shirts to show we're not with them!"

M, N, O, P, Q: "Hey, they're profiting off racism! Racist! Quick, get Jesse Jackson, we can make the evening edition!"

B: *Tiptoes away*



Yeah, from a professional public relations point of view, PA handled it terrible. From a personal satisfaction point of view, fuck Social Justice Warriors looking for a headline, and fuck people who blindly follow them.

It'd going to be magically delayed to two weeks after the console launch like all the other ACs.

Certainly the presentation was impressive, but mostly in what it implied, not what was directly shown. The implication of the footage was that we would have all of NYC (or at least Manhattan and parts of Queens/Brooklyn close to Manhattan) and the building interiors. A GTA size open world, without the cars, but being able to enter most buildings would be insanely impressive. It's doubtful they can get anywhere near that.

Retail = brick and mortar? What happens if we buy it online?

I want to believe, but my inner skepticism demands answers

It's an anti-used copy thing. Same as EA online passes, you get it with new copies.

It's antiquated because it's complex for the sake of being complex. It's full of minor passives that need 5 points to be meaningful and long slogs between signature talents.

The auction house was awful and the item generation subpar and the maps not random enough, but I thought the skill system was excellent. I thought it struck a great balance between diversity of builds and not locking you into things before you had a good feel for what abilities did. Skill Trees are not necessary.

Apparently you need to turn off Steam Overlay or else achievements and other things will cause crashes.

I have 0 interest in GTA V on PC simply because Rockstar's ports are garbage.

I hope you guys are right and it comes to next gen before PC because I wanna play the game, I hate the PS3 load times and know it'll be a slideshow on my PC.

GTA and Saint's Row occupy a weird space in my game collection - for the shooting I use KB+M but as I hit E to hijack a car I switch to gamepad to drive. Only games I remember using both - even borderlands I drive on KB+M but they do some weird snap to mouse steering!

From the videos, it looks like the same version of the RAGE engine as Max Payne 3, which ran quite well on PCs.

5 weeks + 8 months for the PC version.

8 months? more like 2 years... we'd likely see a PS4/Xbone version before a PC version were to arrive.

Based on what? 6-8 months later has been the release window for the PC versions of GTA 3, VC, SA and 4.

Eh, I don't really understand that. You pay what the game is worth to you. I don't feel guilty about buying a game that's originally $50 at 75% off if that's the only price I'd buy it at.

Couldn't ever get anyone to play the first one....not sure why everyone is excited not to play this one.....
It's not a big AAA game, so relatively small playerbase shouldn't be surprising. The first one was pretty profitable at less than a million sold. But it is fun, and the gameplay is slightly unique.

Yes, and since you know you don't know anything about it, you shouldn't be preaching about any lessons. The situation is completely different and nothing you said applies. It's a small developer, for which preorder numbers can actually help, and everyone who preorders gets to see the quality for themselves (and thus can cancel if they don't like where the game is going).

I have no idea what this game is about (well a vague idea) as I have not followed it and the following is a commentary on pre-orders and not this game's quality (of which I have no idea):

People are still not learning from the D3 debacle. The SimCity debacle. the Aliens:CM debacle. Don't preorder games, there is no need to. What publishers are learning from this is that people will literaly buy shit in a box if the box is pretty enough. Vote for quality and buy the games that deserve your money.

Thank you.

You're learning exactly the wrong lesson. People preordered this to gain access to the beta, which is an actual beta that has devs taking feedback from the players, e.g.- changing skill trees, adding FOV option, and making animations work with high FOV.

How accurate are these games in terms of speed and car simulation? I remember that episode of Top Gear where they made such a big deal out of how little reaction time you had and how you had to keep the speed up so everything wouldn't lock up. Do they ramp everything down just to make it playable by normal people?

I can't believe movie tie-in games are still a thing. Do these things even come close to making a profit?

Holy shit, these comments went full retard hard and fast with the idea of "GTA Online" as a separate game. There's no reason they would put that in this trailer unless it's just the name of the multiplayer component to GTA V.
