What the hell, this thread has more rage than a Star Citizen thread. No Man's Sky is more of a zen mindset game, run around, zap rocks, fly around, name rocks, etc.

Woo saah, woo saah...relax, let the tension go...

I know right? RedEye, Beamer, seriously. You guys should let it go. The loathing is quite unbecoming.

Is this a self referential joke? I'm not even in this thread. I just find it funny you are so angry over a game you played 40 hours. That next to no one else here feels angry at. You pre-ordered. Most of us saw that the game was dropping features like crazy.

I've still never played it. Never will. Stopped paying attention to prerelease games that aren't direct sequels with the same engine years ago. A lesson pretty much all gamers should learn.

And yet nothing you replied with had any bearing on the actual subject, that being about NMS, you merely replied to a reply in regards to it's relevancy of your post.

Here's my original comment in this thread:

Once again, Hello Games didn't come clean with the truth until AFTER the fact. How many copies were sold on GOG from the Next announcement?

Looks like it is all about No Man's Sky and Hello Games to me.

I'm not going to engage in irrelevant hyperbole with Beamer no matter how hard he stomps his feet.

Anything else you wish to add?

Not sure "hyperbole" is the word you're looking for.

In any case, no one is talking about your original post. I asked you if you also blame GoG. It's a valid question, given that approximately half of your posting on this forum is about how angry you are that you only got 40 hours of play from the game. A normal person would find GoG somewhat to blame, but I suspected you did not. You agreed and said you solely blame GoG.

I have no idea what the next 5,000 words you've posted are about. Few here seem to. You said, direct quote, you solely blame Hello Games. Your words. That's what people are responding to. Somehow you've not refuted this yet get angrier and angrier. You don't even address having said it.

A simple "no, I misspoke, but GoG is a generally ore reliable company and is handling this well with refunds" would have been fine. Instead, 5,000 words that say nothing and don't address the post people are commenting on and instead are outraged over being called outraged. I get it, when I was a kid nothing ruined a Saturday morning more than my mom insisting I was in a bad mood when I wasn't. Arguing that you're not ina bad mood puts you in one. But dude, search your history for this game and tell me your posts don't come across as outraged and offended.

He lied. Or more accurately he obfuscated, he didn't tell the whole truth or lied by omission. There were millions of dollars involved and the hype for the game was huge. The pre-orders themselves were immense. There is no way in hell that Sean didn't know what kind of game he had in his hands, what was possible to do in the game, how limited it was at launch and how it differed from what was presented as possible.

Beamer will try to convince you otherwise, but Beamer is a corporate lawyer. He does this shit for a living.

Pfft. I left law like a decade ago now. Wow, no, that really was a decade...

So GoG sold something they likely knew wouldn't have all the features people were buying it for, and you're outraged, but you assign them absolutely no blame?

Stop trying to create innuendo where none exists. You're making yourself look obtuse.

First, I did not express "outrage" as you call it (I didn't even use an exclamation mark). Second, I said nothing about GOG. I cannot speak about what CDPR knew and when they knew it because that's not the point of my original post. I was explicitly talking about Hello Games and their business practices. They knowingly sold a product on GOG based on something that they knew would not be present and failed to inform the GOG customer base that this feature would not be available at purchase. They did the same thing at the initial launch. Sean Murray had to finally come clean.

First, you are outraged.
Second, GoG knew. Files would have been passed at least a week prior.
Third, I brought up GoG. You called me obtuse, but when I asked if you assign blame to GoG, you said you assigned it "solely" to Murray. That word, solely, means you believe 100% of the blame is theirs. If they get all the blame, you assign GoG none.

But yes, you're outraged.

In any case I think it's funny how much of "dairy is good for you" articles we're seeing now that dairy consumption is declining. The young people are all about the plant milks, and rightly so, unless dairy dies soon, those young people won't reach retirement age before the planet goes mad max and waterworld at the same time.

You're the KXMode of wacky diets.

Spoken like a dairy addict

I actually hardly eat dairy. Well, cheese (real cheese, from Murray's!) and ice cream. You'll pry french cheese and ice cream out of my cold, dead hands.

This guy had no experience and Sony pushing him. When he started, I guarantee that was their feature roadmap. He couldn't stop, or Sony didn't want him admitting anything until it was definite.

The comparison between Star Citizen to No Man Sky is inaccurate. People knew when Star Citizen would be available for testing, that it would be in an alpha state. Chris made this abundantly clear from the beginning. Conversely, No Man's Sky was pitched by Sean Murray as this fantastic feature-rich experience at launch. Sean knowingly lied to millions of people so that his company could make millions. He never technically broke any laws, but he did engage in immoral business practices. That said, I'm indifferent to NMS and Sean Murray. My recent uninstall is basically a confirmation that I find the game to be boring and not worth my time.

You know what they say about ignorance and malice, right?

Rectal Prolapse wrote on Jul 24, 2018, 15:34:
I read that FOX had to choose between Dollhouse and Sarah Connor Chronicles for cancellation. They decided to axe SCC.

It's more complicated than that, and like many things, comes down to rights. Fox didn't own the rights to the show, so they were less interested in continuing to buy it. Warner Brothers owned the rights, but only to the characters exclusive to the show. They had their Terminator movie coming out around the same time, and just wanted to fund it long enough to create hype for that show. The company that owned the actual franchise went bankrupt and got bought by someone else, who didn't have much interest in a show that wasn't doing so well, anyway, and instead wanted a new trilogy.

The show wasn't doing well enough for anyone to fight for it when its ownership was spread across so many companies.

Cheerful stat of the day:

Price of a loaf of bread:
1977: $0.32
2016: $1.96

Median income, ages 25-34:
1977: $34,000
2016: $34,000


I'm not sure where you got those numbers, but according to the Census Bureau young adults are making $2,000 less today than 1980, inflation adjusted.

What's scary is that there are only a handful of states where they're making more. The entire East Coast minus FL, GA, and PA, plus the entirety of New England. Plus Hawaii, and, for some odd reason, South Dakota.

You should use the quote tags, haha.

Anyway, Cernovich is an admitted date rapist and the lowest of the low, but what he dug up on Gunn was surprising and, frankly, shocking that it hadn't been deleted.

What he dug up on Harmon is not shocking, fits who Harmon is, and fits what Adult Swim is. It's no worse, maybe better, than the short that launched Rick and Morty (which is terrible and not in the tiniest bit funny. How it became R&M is anyone's guess), and if Adult Swim had to ban people for jokes in poor taste, it'd have no one to run things. It's all a matter of what the bad taste was and when.

I don't see myself buying a streaming game device.

Laffman

Can't imagine you'll have a choice. Put yourself in the shoes of a dev for a moment. Microsoft and Sony both go streaming-only. You no longer need to worry much about hardware. You build for the streaming system, which is likely the same for both. Their software is a wrapper that converts from the console to the server. All you do is map input in there and you've ported.

Now you look at the PC. Development was always fairly easy on the other two, as they're known hardware, and you just simplified it even more. And it works (assuming it works.) Everyone has the same experience, same graphics, same latency, and is happy. But on the PC, that's currently not true. Some people have better graphics than others, giving them a potential advantage. Some people don't have good enough computers to play your game. More importantly, you need to QC for hundreds of hardware combos. Work you didn't do on the console side at all, now that it streams.

Do you do all that work, put in that time, effort, resources, and money, not even knowing it if will pay off? Or do you use the exact product going out to consoles and just apply a PC wrapper?

Then, everyone is playing the same product. They have the same experience. When new versions go out, when things get tweaked, you know it goes out to everyone. Usage data, which you use to tweak, now lives on your own servers and is far more accessible.

Yeah, the end user can come up with a billion reasons why they prefer otherwise, but if you're the dev, do you really want to put in all that effort when you don't need to? When you can make as much money, but stand to risk losing next to none? When everyone else is doing it, so it's accepted?

Laugh, man.

The fact that Xbox gets the priority tells us quite a bit about the direction they're wanting to go with the game: less strategy RPG and more online social action. But I guess we already knew that.
It might have more to do with Microsoft running the servers for Microsoft while the PC servers will be run by Bethesda. That said, does Bethesda have a history of how well it runs its multiplayer servers?

Has more to do with how tightly controlled the xbox hardware is. If you're testing hardware, you want to be on the PC. If you're testing balance and systems, you want to be on the xbox, where you can isolate just those things and rule out hardware issues quickly, if not immediately.

Everyone here took science of some kind. You want to isolate the variables you're interested in. I'd assume even CJ can admit the Xbox lets them isolate gameplay variables far better than the PC.

Unfair competition? I was unaware Nintendo was selling ROMs and emulators of their old consoles.

They sell a huge amount of their ROMs these days. Ignoring that there are mini-consoles that are all about older games, they sell them on their main consoles via app stores.

How widespread must individual racism be before you're willing to call it systematic?

And considering you've offered 0 examples of racism in the US against whites, is it worth ever bringing it up in a discussion about racism? Everyone knows it happens, but everyone should know that it never really impacts anyone. It's rare, and more importantly, it's almost always by people without power.

A CEO or police officer being racist can have huge implications. The guy sitting outside your local bodega being racist not so much.
