It's still pretty much the same game, aka DE injects new content, people flock to it then get bored in an endless cycle. The reality is if they'd just make a full single player campaign they could have a good game on par with mass effect but the reality is they don't want to spend the money and I doubt their team has the talent to really take it to the next level.

They surely can afford it now, but probably do this in their meetings.... We are making money hand over... why do we need to create a single player campaign experience? We've already found our audience that loves what we've actually made.

How many Win10's are out there and that is how many Edge users there are at some level from 1 to 100. I do find it blistering fast, but still use trusty Firefox 64 w/addons.

Tries to be less a dick and it just can't happen.... so here he knows pc gamers can get ball park #'s and they are poor. So he tells us how well PS4 is doing, because we can't check. How Ps4 players just play, PC gamers like a bit more tear-down and drama:


the current player count on PC is reportedly 0, with a peak concurrent player figure of 218 over the past 24 hours; it had an all-time peak of 7,482 players, according to Steamcharts. These numbers may not be entirely accurate, but it is clear that player figures are low on PC. The PS4 edition is "doing fine," Bleszinski said. The console and PC communities have different mindsets when it comes to judging success, the developer said.

"There is a situation where players look at numbers on Steam; that doesn't happen on PlayStation 4. I don't have the numbers in front of me, but you look at PC, [concurrent user] health versus PS4, PS4 is doing fine," he said. "People cough up 30 bucks and hop online and they don't overthink it. On PC there is you wanting to declare something a success or a bomb by this internet culture that loves to just observe things.

Just started playing through Divinity Original Sin in anticipation of this one.

Release is in 25 hours give or take

Yeah I figure it'll take me a couple weeks to finish the first so by that time the hot fix patches will probably be into play.

Same, like Larian a lot, but they usually need a little extra work on release to shore things up and like Cd Project... they'll keep working on it to the point there is an advanced version. Similar approaches.

News Comments > On Windows 10 Game Stuttering

Steam Support has in-app and registry-based solutions for turning the Xbox DVR off. Disabling Windows Updates like Mashiki suggested should only be a last resort as it's a big security issue. "Microsoft cares about PC gamers" is basically the trickle-down economics of the tech world.

All this stuff is a mind fuck.

It's a big security risk? I think I'm having much more problems with companies fumbling my data around on their end, then I have security issues on mine.

Face it we are naked in a helpless ocean of data.

One person has an issue and they think that is normal for many.

Some have stuttering, doesn't mean all.

The best news is they are addressing it, good.

I reckon those that don't have Win10 think there is some type of hassle and issue after issue bedeviling it's users. I was golden with 7 and just as golden with 10. Pretty much the same thing day in and out.

Yup, I don't have the stutter, yep I didn't have the USB issue someone had here. I didn't have the sleep issue another did. But there is also a person out there with a stuttering issue with their Win7, a usb issue with their Win7 and sleep issue with their Win7.

I get what you are really fighting about and that is... you think we are being data mined more with Win10 than Win7 and a little more heavy handed upgrading practices, that's about it. But again we are naked in a digital world and whatever you think is sacred about your data... you've given that up voluntarily or involuntarily a long time ago. I sleep at night knowing any shenanigans like that, I've had no problem getting problems reversed, good, otherwise this would be a nightmare.

News Comments > First Emotion Processing Unit Launches
11. Re: First Emotion Processing Unit Launches Sep 11, 2017, 17:57 HorrorScope
 
And again the anger/doubt responses, thanks Eraser for more details, from the site:

"The EPU is based on Patrick Levy-Rosenthalís Psychobiotic Evolutionary Theory extending the Ekmanís theory by using not only twelve primary emotions identified in the psycho-evolutionary theory but also pain / pleasure and frustration / satisfaction. The groundbreaking EPU algorithms effectively enable machines to respond to stimuli in line with one of the twelve primary emotions: anger, fear, sadness, disgust, indifference, regret, surprise, anticipation, trust, confidence, desire and joy. The Emotion recognition classifiers achieve up to 94 percent accuracy on conversation."

I think we sort of expect R&D on things like this behind the scenes. They are bringing a product to the market, they feel they have something worth selling, cool lets see it. If it has value it will survive in some form, Nvidia could buy the tech. If not, then the market spoke for now. But I would like to think games or not, we want computers of the future to be able to understand not only voice but the emotion behind it. It isn't like I'm going to find my wallet $100 short from being swindled, I'll do my propers before I ever make a purchase on a EPU. So if someone wants to take the entrepreneurial risk, thumbs up here.

Vote with your wallet. The more people keep buying shit like this, the more publishers jizz all over themselves and keep doing it.

And we know that isn't really going to change anything. It is what it is, back to your first sentence.

Welcome to gaming for the last ~8 years.

The only thing different is we get no good stuff at all without paying extra, per source. That's different.

Idiots will buy the game anyway. Only way to end the micro transactions is by no one buying it or any game with these transactions. It's easy to get rid of this practice, but most people are just stupid and will buy it.

Then I guess it isn't easy.

Now we know why Ark went final, they didn't want the backlash of a 2nd expansion release in EA. Whatever, but now we know motives.

No shits being drowned out. You guys think there are games that you are dying to play but you really can't find them? Free market, even though it is saturated, but what are you wanting done? A law? Tell people what to do? Just roll with it and use filters etc.

If true, I think this is a major issue that could very well cause Amazon a lot of grief. Oh sure they'll try to write themselves out of liability, but that doesn't always hold up in court.

IF they add VR... sold. I'm really liking space sims with VR, like love like. There was a new snuggle truck app for VR and this one is dank!

You sit/lay, put on your VR, then you are sitting in a PB watching life happen around you in game. Pretty sweet.

Yeah the finished game is a couple weeks away. It's been in EA for a while now. But yes those are some top-shelf CRPG Skelo-characters.
