News Comments > Grand Theft Auto 6 Rumor

I had a lot of fun with GTAV on console but especially PC. Definitely an amazing looking game. Lots of stuff to do and I am one of the few that liked the story mode,for what is was.

That being said, I would be all for a new type of thing this time around, as long as it isn't just a gimmick. Looking forward to Mafia 3 and its New Orleans setting.

News Comments > Far Cry Primal Released

I am no longer buying these template based game franchises. Always the same experience, and they design the core game to be so vanilla to ease in the repackaging, that everything ends up disjointed. Side quests, npcs, and environment don't flow well with the main story line or game world, and it all just seems so very generic and bland in the end despite the top of the line tech.

I know that reusing tech for different games is nothing new, but it feels like it's become more of an assembly line than a canvas.

Would be a great party game if the cellphone controller thing works well. I've never enjoyed using a cellphone for a controller on phone games, but this is a little different.

They might have made it very lucrative after going free-to-play. Wouldn't surprise, I remember reading Lord of Rings Online did.

In the late 90s I produced renders from Bryce 3D that looked so photorealistic that I sent them to my friends and they didn't believe me when I told them they were CG renders, not actual photos. If you meant to disparage what RSI is doing, you're doing it rong.

I guess you are right and that was a poor example. At that time everything I saw on the internet looked like this.

My apologies. I should of just said it looks like shit.

So, on top of the accusations of feature creep, you want them to hand model every planet now...despite it looking better then any game ever?

Seriously. Evochron? Cool indie game, way better than anything DS did, but look up what that planetary entry looks like. Compare that to SC.

At work today..."Holy shit, I can't believe they can do that in a video game." Industrial Light & Magic saw the same video and were amazed.

Get back to me, if you can pull your head out of your butt.

I never said they had to hand craft the entire planets. I also admit the effect of leaving the planet is cool. My complaint is with the generated landscape. I mean they could do a better job.

It's painfully obvious where the procedural generation kicks in.

I could draw a line along it and this is just a simple rocky surface, at least it was until it left the base. Then it becomes windswept dirt.

Once it leaves the area of the installation, the environment begins to look like something made with Bryce from the late 90's.

If they could continue with the original level of detail, they might have something.

Smith confessed after five hours of interrogation, telling detectives he and Ketunuti had argued about the quality of his work. He said he became enraged, strangled her, and set her body on fire to cover up the crime.

Jesus Christ! Talk about saying yes to the wrong impulse. Yeah, most capital crimes are crimes of passion, but murdering someone because of a dispute over the quality of their work? Too bad PA didn't have the death penalty. What a waste of money and resources having him sitting around in prison for the rest of his life.

Yeah the whole thing was really strange. I still don't understand how he was able to just continue on with his appointment with me like nothing happened.

For those interested I will link the story, unfortunately I don't think any articles addressed the Angie's List connection. Now I understand anyone can just snap, but it seems like this guy had issues and they could of handled things after being informed, much better. Instead of doing nothing.

But you got a refund right, what are you upset about? /sarcasm

Not me, and I even tipped the guy $20 becauseI mistakenly thought his agitated demeanor was a result of having to drive a great distance for a small job. My mother used her account on my behalf, since I did not have one, and as you can imagine she was extremely upset. It just shows a major flaw in their system if they allow contractors to sub contract out work.

Yeah I consider myself lucky, I made a point to ask the detectives and they said the young woman he killed also used Angie's list.

Never ever use Angie's List. I had an experience where one of their contractors sent a man who had just murdered someone, and I mean, the appointment a few hours before me, to my home. Even when told about this they refused to remove that contractors listing.

The contractor was just sub contracting out the work to independent people. It was a horrible experience. Over a year later I had to testify at the Man's murder trial and point him out in the courtroom. This is someone I let walk through my house.

They are not a trustworthy company and I wouldn't trust those reviews at all.

I just don't get it. It takes up no space, except for some text in a list, and even then you can hide it or move somewhere else. I have plenty of games I don't like, in my library, but I can't ever see myself deleting them from my account. I just see no benefit to that whatsoever, especially as a collector.

This is like a nexus of evil management.
Just like Valve, who literally haven't had an original thought since the original Half-Life (count em: CounterStrike, Team Fortress, Portal, Left4Dead, Dota2, ALL based off of mods which Valve bought out).

Steam?

Can anyone do the math on how much Candy needs to be sold to break even on this deal? Must be 1000 clones of Candy Crush at this point and done mostly by terrible devs.

Last I had heard, King was estimated to be making $250 million a year in profit off of their titles. Assuming flat revenue growth, that means Activision bought them at a forward P/E of about 24 - which is actually on the low side for software companies. Makes me think there's a considerable (possibly massive) risk premium built into this purchase.

Mind you, it'd make sense to take as much of a risk premium on this company as possible - King doesn't really have the same sort of network infrastructure that even Activision has, much less Ubisoft or EA, and they don't have any significant software tech assets like engines, APIs, or patents. What Activision bought was a franchise built on some aging IP, and paid dearly for it. This makes Microsoft's purchase of Mojang seem sane in comparison - the only rival in terms of a ballsy acquisition in online/mobile gaming that I can think of was the rumors of Microsoft buying Zynga before they ran away from that potential buyout screaming in terror.

They are buying the userbase, just like Microsoft did.
