This Unhealthy Behavior Will Make You Miserable.

As a manager myself I tend to take responsibility for most things as it was my job to make sure things were done correctly or if I made the decision to something that didn't fly. It's healthy to just own up to mistakes and learn from them.

Just because it is hard to do does not mean we shouldn't try to do them.

IIRC, the "Dude" guy got busted for dope of some kind years back...;) And that ended his brain-dead career at the time. I would have liked the campaign much better if he'd said, "Dude, you are not getting a Dell! Comprendevous?"...;)

It's mentioned in the article. "His stint as the pitchman came to an abrupt end in 2003 when he was busted for suspicion of buying marijuana."

They really should just make an executive decision to refund and commit to fixing the game. There's no reason Rockstar shouldn't have given the team working on this more support and testing. Reinstating the original releases would also be a big bonus.
It's a small studio with few resources. How could they ever afford to do this?
A small studio was contracted to do it. R* and 2K could do exactly this.



I think he was referring to takedown and made the comment in jest, at least how I read it.

Though it looks like the people saying it was just a quick upscaler/smoother was right. Everything was auto smoothed and released. Even things meant to be sharp.
Fair enough. In regards to auto smooth. Yes I believe it. I already read somewhere that they used AI upscaling for the graphics too. So why wouldn't they just go an smooth everything too?

Because you can't do that to an asset pipeline with LOD's already made and rigging already in place for games made decades ago with 20k or more assets Things are supposed to align, old texture and shades only work on single surfaces etc. are maybe tiled this or that way with old trickeries... the moment you smooth the meshes you ruined your entire asset database because bone IK limits get broken.... it's a thing... that nobody with a brain does.

That was a rhetorical question. =)

I just hope they eventually get more rich customization like Android. I doubt that will happen any time soon though... if ever. Some of the customizations poses security risks I assume. I like both os's for different reasons.

I never played any of the Leisure Suit games so I'm wondering...is there even anything to uncensor? I thought that the games basically were like college humor from the late 80s/early 90s. Excuse my ignorance.

Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude—Uncut and Uncensored!. The major difference between the two North American releases is that the uncut and uncensored version contains full frontal nudity and sex scenes, although there is very little of the latter and it is mostly implied rather than depicted. ~https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Leisure_Suit_Larry:_Magna_Cum_Laude

Yeah, this was the one Al Lowe very loudly told anyone within earshot that he had nothing to do with. He didn't want to be even remotely associated with it.

Yeah it wasn't any good. I was happy to play his remastered version of LSL1 though.

With the recent scandal involving Activison I'm surprised people here are promoting such a mysogynistic game series as Leisure Suit Larry without virtue signaling how problematic the game was. Your rules. Tsk, tsk.

Are you trolling? Have you ever played these games? Are you one of those folks who just read a headline and is then an expert on a matter?
