HHHHmmmmm.....RAGE, BRINK, and Dead Island come to mind, to name a few...


Dead... Island.... No, for that, Steam needs to add a "Nuke" option that allows us to wipe the developer off the face of the earth.

Only one person has pointed out this shit is a trojan horse for Epic's new "me too" spyware. Gamers will just gobble any cock put in front of them if there's even suggestion of a marginal entertainment value.

News Comments > Just Cause 3 Patch Status
12. Re: Just Cause 3 Patch Status Dec 3, 2015, 15:30 Ludomancer
 
That's the sad thing: This is the product of, literally, thousands of hours of testing by thousands of testers. At a certain point the game is so fucking big and complex, and the development pipelines can be such a ridiculous mess due to time, budget, and shoehorned releases (I think that's the part that gets us the most), it becomes impossible to manage.

I agree it's unacceptable, but it literally is tested to such a stupid extent that it's not really a valid complaint (no offense). They just need to improve their work and methodology for development.

You really have to wonder if any of these studios spend much time on testing their product.

Yeah, I heard it was more of an executable wrapper, than DRM. I find that to be an acceptable form of DRM. Doesn't fuck with me, steal my data, mine my PC, or run in the BG while I play. I started the game up the first time from Steam, set everything up. Put steam in offline mode, and blocked JC3 in the firewall. Still, works like a charm.

I feel for the people with bugs. Bugs are so unacceptable. I've had some odd shit, but mostly embarrasing things for the devs; nothing gamebreaking, so I think I'm lucking out.

Game is relatively enjoyable, but I'm over "crafting" and upgrade trees. I'm actually mixing up parts of this game with FarCry 3 now, which says something. Time to evolve our designs here guys.

Likely issues caused by Denuvo ^^

I have no love for DRM or anything of its kind, but I kind of doubt it.

Wow, I had no idea they were doing this. I really loved this game when it was first released; I think I played it twice.

Wish I'd known about the DRM-thing before purchasing it. (I don't care what you call it, I call it "unnecessary software").

I haven't heard about this Denuvo until right now. What's weird is that I played DA:I cracked on release, so there doesn't seem to be any problem circumventing it.

I really miss the 90's.

Thank the gods for that. I was about the flip the fuck out, and was wondering why no one else was commenting on the forced adoption of their bullshit downloader.

You don't need gameworks, they're up on the normal download page.

I hate PoE. It felt horribly poorly made, and not because it had "niche appeal".

"With the latest addition of Game Master mode, you’ll be able to craft your own dungeons and then control them as your friends play, placing enemies on the fly, manipulating the environment, and doing everything you can to utterly annihilate them…or, we suppose you could give them a "fun" experience. "

I have been waiting for exactly this for 2 decades.

Just Cause 2 was one of the most enjoyable games I've played in my life. I've been looking forward to this game for a really long time.

Steele Johnson - You can't have this kind of gameplay with a realistic physics model. The physics support the gameplay. It's fully modable, so since you understand design and code so well you should take a crack at fixing the game.

I hated three dog. When I finally found his location in Fallout 3, my primary motivation was to see if he was an NPC I could kill.

thats about right
if youre not trying to just do a cash grab, then whats the problem? make a new fucking game dude

The deal I have is that if they're worthy of all that nostalgia and praise, they should have no problem making a successful money-grab by making a new IP.
I know for a fact creating/running a game studio is an insane amount of stress and difficult decisions, but whenever this happens it feels like a public display of lack of confidence in their ability to make something worthwhile, and I lose a little respect for the creator.
It doesn't help that he and Shafer had a couple semi-flops returning to their "roots" already. That will shake the confidence further, I'm sure. But I still hate it.

At a certain point it's clear that some beloved creators are just flailing about wildly to continue, or reacquire, their past success, and grabbing at existing IPs for the sake of nostalgia just seems pathetic and lazy. Gilbert, et al... show us you're actually the talent people think you are by not trying to grab the ledge of past successes.

<sigh> I miss QuakeCon, not that I ever went. I miss the era when id was the unquestioned ruler of the FPS, and their games just dominated my life.
