Oh so Valve is all about transparency now? That's a new one.

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.

Mechwarrior Online had $500 single golden skinned Mechs. The cult like Star Citizen is worse. And this up there with them in sheer gall.

People really need to learn what Kickstarter is. When you back a Kickstarter, you shouldn't treat it like pre-ordering a product or making an investment. Instead, you are essentially donating money to an idea. That's it. It's better to think of it like Patreon. If the idea comes to fruition, that's great but there are no guarantees. If you back a Kickstarter and expect that the release date and stretch goals are part of an ironclad contract, you've already missed the point.

People also need to learn how game development works. It isn't an exact science. Ideas that sound good on paper may not work so well in practice. Iteration leads to better games and during the process, things will be changed or cut for the better of the product as a whole. If you can't accept this, you shouldn't be Kickstarting games.
Yes but developers have a perverse incentive to make extravagant claims just to get the all or nothing funding model of Kickasterter.

That didn't answer the central questions why the login is necessary for some of those features. I understand why it may be necessary for Gefore Experience rewards but not some of the others. He's like a politician who answers a slightly different question than the one that was actually posed. Or answers the low hanging fruit question not the challenging one, addressing the weakest arguments and not the strongest.

Didn't someone try this already and it failed? How are they going to solve the latency issues? This is not worthy of the PC Master Race.

I don't know how long after purchase Australians can ask for refunds, but if this story is true, I'm shocked at the level of arrogance Valve has shown in flouting Australian's law and the lack of interest.

Biggest problem with the beta is that there are no randomized spawn locations. Unlike Left 4 Dead 1, Left 4 Dead 2, and Vermintide.

As far as I know this is completely wrong. It works exactly like L4D1 at least. There are set pieces, which occur at scripted places in the map (just like in L4D), but the enemy spawns points and approach vectors are randomised. The boss fights are not random, but they weren't random in L4D either. The Tank always appeared at certain places on the map. The beta mission notwithstanding, there are differnt ways and paths through the different ships that you can reach each particular mission goal, in this respect it is even less linear than L4D for example. Apparently the INITIAL enemy placement on the beta map was NOT randomised which is what everyone seems to be complaining about, but that sounds like something that could easily be corrected. In either case, I for one am getting this primarily for the single player and the story (& setting of course) the coop and MP is a nice bonus and Im not expecting to be blown away there and neither should anyone else but it might not end up being as terrible as everyone is making it out to be anyway.
I hope you are right.

they need to take a few more months and fix it proper then have a weekend open beta to make sure all the bugs are ironed out. Cancel your pre-orders let them know that's it's not acceptable until they do. IF enough people canceled their pre-orders they would do something.

Just don't pre-order ever.
Amen

Maybe. But I think you're just finding things to bitch about to hear yourself talk. There are plenty of legit arguments out there....but yours were silly.

Multiplayer without the gimmick of server-authoritative nonsense, purely controlled by players.
You mean server-authoritative nonsense that allows levers to curb hacking? That's used in just about every large-scale MMOG in modern gaming? Or Matchmaking? Or a Mechwarrior playerbase that dwarfs all the other MW titles combined? I love the games of yesteryear as well....but we have to take off the rose colored glasses from time to time and recognize that there were issues.
No it's not to hear myself talk but to express my belief that PGI is incapable hack shovelware developer who cannot do justice to the Mechwarrior franchise.

Well I did say I was biased against PGI and try to explain why. Are pilots in the inner sphere suicidal to waste a scout Mech and dead pilot? But I guess what you say is plausible.
