News Comments > FINAL FANTASY XV PC Plans?
13. Re: FINAL FANTASY XV PC Plans? Mar 3, 2017, 20:35 Creston
 
I quite enjoyed it. Didn't finish all the dungeons, as I got pretty tired of it around the 70 hour mark and finishing the main quest. Still have a ton of hunts to do as well.

But it's a fun game. Fun world, companions are cool, interactions are good, combat takes a while to master but once you do it's a very good system.

A PC version would be cool, though I doubt I'd double dip.

We thought only 14000 people would play, so we didn't bother to make content, because those 14000 people would not... need... any...

err...

LOOK WE HAVE A NEW PROJECT!

Anyone who gives these idiots any more money is just deserving to get ripped off.

30 Billion... Has Snapchat ever actually earned a profit?

Would it surprise you to hear that, to date, this company has not made a single $ profit? Has no monetization idea, and has no idea how to ever actually turn a profit?



As I've mentioned here before, they have lots of monetization ideas. My company works with them regularly. Regularly. We paid them millions of dollars in 2016, and our 3 year budget with them ramps up quickly. Can they get to break-even? Who knows?

Cutter is the most out of touch with reality I think we'll ever have here, but almost everyone here is out of touch with what people under 30 do with their time. They do not watch broadcast TV. Pretty much ever. But they spend enormous amounts of time on Snapchat, and they spend far more time watching Stories than watching TV. So where do you think companies that want to reach 18-34 year olds are putting their budget? Normal TV commercials, or the places Snapchat has embedded advertising?

Five trillion people could be using Snapchat, but if they never make a single dollar worth of profit, how can the company be worth 30 billion dollars?

Apparently venture capitalists nowadays are more than happy to keep sinking money into companies that never actually make a dime, just as long as they're "big."

Went and saw Logan this afternoon, it is fucking AWESOME. Damn you Fox for waiting seven thousand fucking years before finally making an R rated Wolverine movie.

2.5 hours of just fantastic entertainment. I'm sad that it's (spoiler) the end of Logan though, even though it's the same storyline as in the comics.

So have you fixed all the issues with ME3's multiplayer then, Bioware? Can we finally play a MP match as a Vanguard, and not Charge out of the level? Can we finally not see people with infinite missiles?

If any of that shit pops up, everyone will be more than happy to yell at you for having cancelled your beta.

Not yet, The GTX 1070 is unflinched for now, from its $349 baseline pricing.

The Twitter worker lives in an "ultra cheap" house with his wife and kids in the city that only charges $3,000 rent per month.

So the other ~110K of your salary isn't enough for you to pay bills and buy food? Die in a fire.

And that "digital marketer" who makes more than a million with her husband, but "can't afford to buy a house"... No, you can't afford to buy the house you WANT. Welcome to this thing called LIFE.

As with any business model adjustments there is a significant risk attached to this change

You mean the risk of re-releasing a game that few people wanted to play originally? Yeah. I'm not sure I'd call it a "risk" so much as "probably setting money on fire."

I'll admit, I thought microsoft had set yet another pile of money on fire when they bought Mojang for 2.5B, but it definitely does not look like Minecraft is slowing down anytime soon. They probably haven't made their money back yet, but it's only a matter of time.


I wonder how Notch feels about it now, knowing he made what is literally a global phenomenon.

Sweeeeeeeeeeet!

we massively expanded every dimension of the game, including the world, the story, the RPG systems, the core gameplay and of course the personal player stories of the Nemesis System

That especially sounds great. I'm VERY much looking forward to this.

Only thing I'm a little worried about is that they had a DLC in the original game where you played as Celebrimbor and wielded the one ring, and it was lame as shit. This is THE Ring of Power, and you're significantly weaker than late-game Talion in the base game. I never finished it, because having to work around the crap limitations of the ring was boring.

So let's hope they've either shored that up, or your ring is more of a story-telling device than anything else.
