Yeah, he's a dick. He's a dick to everybody. Get over it. And if you can't, put him on ignore. Not like he gives a shit.

But aren't you then rewarding that behavior through inaction?

No, you combat trolls through inaction. You empower them by getting worked up and reacting.


Dump the Report button then?

There are things beyond trolling that it's needed for.

They made a whole (off) season of Big Brother only available on that service. That's where they got the million subscribers.

It was a nice way of saying you could stand to clean up your posts a bit. I had some PMs from others in the past saying the same thing and I took it to heart in the past few years. I see others have given that feedback without any introspection being triggered so I won't bother trying to convince you further.

You didn't hold back before but all of a sudden you were being 'nice'.

Seems like you're confusing Verno and Redmask.

All Verno said was, "Yeah I don't have time to read or respond to all of that."
Which yeah, in comparison to what Redmask wrote he was being pretty nice.

He's a millionaire for sure, he was just working there because he enjoyed it and/or because he'd be bored otherwise. Must have changed his mind about one of those.

There's a simple measure of whether or not you have too much junk:

Can you fit two cars in your garage?

No one has a garage here, never mind a two car garage.

Why do you make that assumption?

I meant here where I live, not here on Blues.

Round these parts we stuff all of our shit in the basement.
Definitely keep cars in the garage.

I never got the impression that that was space captain.

edit: But I guess he answers to that name...

You're off your game man. Recently quit drugs or something?
It's like the trolling got more childish and blatant and at the same time you started actually posting on topic more. Sad!

Yep any positive thing they attribute to Steam is actually nonsense, they've been brainwashed.

its too easy, so its not good in that sense - its not nearly as fleshed out as something like MGSV or even Far Cry, when you consider the takedown skill trees and all that, the AI reactivity and so forth

its not quite an afterthought, but its just half-baked... sure it "works" but thats not nearly enough IMO

i guess it upsets me because its so close to being actually really good.. maybe WD3 will get a home run on that

Uh, you think Far Cry has better stealth than Watch_Dogs? Really? Watch_Dogs gives you way more tools to manipulate the AI with. You have so many ways to distract the AI, hide from the AI and neutralize the AI. In FC, you just throw a rock, wait for an enemy to walk towards it and then stab him in the back. Or just snipe him with a silenced sniper rifle.

MGSV is definitely a better stealth game than Watch_Dogs but Far Cry? Not even close.

I knew to wait for your response

But I think all that was needed was the reference to "takedowns"... Leaving dead bodies all over the place ain't stealth.

I wouldn't be surprised if Amazon makes their own version of Twitch.

But Twitch is already Amazon's own version of Twitch.

Huh... I guess I disagree with you two. I think the stealth works really well. I don't think I've killed a single person in the game.

I first run reconnaissance with the drone. And then I do everything I can with the RC car, and finally I only enter the building if they require me to be in person for a certain objective, and that's pretty rare.

Am I the only person on earth who doesn't care that there are garbage games on Steam?

Do people really just buy games like they're renting a video in the 90s, aimlessly wandering around?

Do you think its easy to keep an independent studio of that size operating? I'd say management is especially competent considering the outcome that most developers in their position experience.

You said they were babbling but it was pretty clear and said "at all" but now you're equivocating.

I agree with the rest except maybe 6...
It's a display technology. You don't ask a flat panel maker to specify their end user.

long terms success of virtual reality

What are they babbling about? There's no long-term success at all.

1. VR hasn't reached broad market penetration.
2. VR is a niche product.
3. No killer app.
4. Expensive entry cost.
5. Unproven technology. Mostly "beta" and "early access."
6. Aimlessness (Is it for gamers? Does it have a medical application? Can teachers use it? etc.)
7. Costly R&D.
8. Horrible ROI.

In the past, I opined that VR needs to produce something within a year that becomes "so necessary or desirable that it proves the core value of some larger technology." If it doesn't happen, VR will fade and die just like any other new tech. There's only so much money Facebook, HTC, and others can dump into VR before it becomes a costly failure. The shareholders are going to demand something soon.

You're talking about the current state of VR.
The phrase "commitment to the long term success" is future looking.
They're committed to making it successful by improving/fixing the things you listed.

I guess that would tie it with GTA IV on all platforms combined.

And that's like dead, Rocket League is still going strong.
