News Comments > Will Lawbreakers Go Free-to-Play?

I don't get it. Why aren't other markets oversaturated like the hero based shooter market? Seems there are lots of game coming out in the same genres all the time and do they also suffer from low player counts or is it we just don't hear about them?

What is specifically the blatant example of Chris Roberts lying?

The fuckers at Equifax should be paying for everyone to freeze and thaw their credit at not just Equifax but Trans Unions, Innovis, and Experian. Not for 30 days but for the life of the person affected. Fuck them.

A few more years and there might be a real full game eventually. But won't change the fact that Sean Murray lied and mislead. Just thinking about this game and Hello Games and the hype lies and misleads pisses me off. I wish I didn't read this story.

I played the game and some of those animations and moves are nothing I have seen in game. I don't think they are actually possible in game.

So the desperation has set it. Pumping up the player count in order to prevent EA from killing the franchise?

So why not raise the price when it's actually out and not ahead?

I'm find the claims made by Derek Smart dubious. Lots of speculation and no convincing evidence and a past history of failed predictions.

However I am also expecting Star Citizen to crash and burn eventually I just don't know when. At the very least fan expectations will not be meet.

That will only reinforce its security.

There is news that its already been hacked using Microsoft Word.
I guess the "S" stands for suckers.
What's been hacked by Microsoft Word? That doesn't make sense.

News Comments > Arkane: Steam Refunds = PC Prey Demo
36. Re: Arkane: Steam Refunds = PC Prey Demo May 3, 2017, 17:32 Overon
 
I thought the explanation was that releasing a PC demo would require DRM which would give a leg up head start for crackers looking to crack the PC retail release as soon as possible.

Also the guys is playing semantic games. When people say "PC port" they mean the PC release of a game that is also released on consoles. We all know that all games are written and designed on PC's but that doesn't stop so many multiplatform releases from being shitty on PC. What he's saying is true but misleading and people who lie by telling the truth can go fuck themselves.

What we really want to know is how much testing and optimization went into the PC version.

Can somebody please translate what "an enthusiastic, empowered Community" really means? Thank you in advance.
It means everyone is all smiles and everything is good nothing to see here, keep buying virtual goods. We want more money. It's about waving that carrot in the form of a roadmap in front of backers who may have these creeping doubts that might result in them no longer paying for virtual goods we are selling.

People and companies being at the mercy of vocal idiots on Twitter is on of the worst things to come out of the Internet. It's too easy for shitty opinions, or valid opinions that are blown out of proportion, to get amplified and stir up an unwarranted shitstorm.

The "apology" letter probably has more words in it than the entire dialogue tree of the character in question. That's how blown up this shit is.

I try not to paint with too broad a brush on this though. Not every trans person is an over sensitive Twitter retard, and a lot of over sensitive Twitter retards aren't even trans and get offended on other peoples behalf.

The other problem with this amplification/signal boosting of pointless shit is that often times they begin innocently enough. Someone is like "Hey, this line of dialogue is very strange and may be offensive, thought you might want to know." And then 12 hours later there's a shitstorm because SJWs freak the fuck out and that in turn causes the people who spend all their time bitching about SJWs to ALSO freak out.

The first few people talking about these things never get it through their heads that despite their innocent and well-meaning intentions, it can only result in a shitstorm with dogpiling and harassment.

There's just really no way to constructively give feedback on sensitive topics, even to the smallest degree, without it getting blown the fuck up.

As an aside, the patch this morning really fixed up a lot of the human lifeless stare problem. Check out this side by side comparison of the most egregious example. Patched on left, original on right.
Okay eyes are better in a still screenshot. Are all the character's eyes fixed? How are they going to fix all those facial animations?

I'm not new. Any very popular PC game can get some relatively minor modifications and rereleased. I'm surprised Half Life and other franchises of similar popularity haven't already.

This is a brilliant marketing move. Resell an old game after putting in minimum amount of resources into it to enhance it as justification for reselling it.

Watch this become a trend if the sales are good. Companies cannot pass up opportunities to reselling games after some minimum enhancements.
