News Comments > Non-VR EVE: Valkyrie - Warzone Announced
1. Re: Non-VR EVE: Valkyrie - Warzone Announced Aug 16, 2017, 06:55 ViRGE
 
Hmm, interesting. Valkyrie is not a game that required VR in terms of game design, but boy did it sure make it a lot of fun. I wonder what non-VR players will think of it?

Man, I never thought I'd say this, but f(orget) Valve.

I wish them the best of luck, but they are no longer the cutting edge masterpiece quality gaming studio they once were. Now they're just a bunch of whalers.

An interesting game, but damn the original was hard. I wonder if the EX version is any easier?

Yeah, I'm really interested in a game that's marketed by 14 year olds to 14 year olds. Christ, this is worse than Romero making one his bitch. Rolleyes
Except that unlike Daikatana, his genuinely looks good. The problem with talking big is that you need to be able to back it up, which is something Romero could never hope to do.

We’ll also have server-wide giveaways of the TNG Skant Uniform
They put the skant in the game?! Why?! Wall

Why they released a new game 1 month later, I dunno.
The original was a 360 game, wasn't it? That's what was released on the PC previously. Whereas this is a new game. (Or so my understanding of it goes)

News Comments > International Prize Pool Swells
1. Re: International Prize Pool Swells Jul 13, 2017, 07:27 ViRGE
 
Given just how much money this thing raises, am I the only person starting to think the players are getting a bum deal? Valve gets 75% of the money, so a $20M prize pool means Valve is pocketing another $60M. Which is far in excess of what all of this costs them.

Huh, so Eve Online feeling the heat generated by Elite Dangerous?
I'm not sure I follow. EVE has had little science games in them for at least a year now, if not longer.

Well that's a shame to hear. I figured it wasn't a strong seller, but I had no idea it was that low.

However, much to my relief, I'm glad to hear that it's a loss that Introversion could afford. After skirting bankruptcy once, I was afraid that was the direction they'd be going ahead. So I hope their next game goes better for them.

jdreyer wrote on Jun 26, 2017, 22:15:
I admire them for trying something different even if it didn't work out.
Agreed. Introversion is a different kind of studio, and one we'd all be worse off without.

Fair point, yet FF3 (6) and Secret of Mana (Seiken Densetsu 2).

It's a pretty solid lineup on that thing. The Chrono Trigger gambit, curious.

Star Fox 2...that's a thing 20 years later apparently

SNES had way better games than the NES on the whole so the lineup is much more impressive. Earthbound is another supremely good game. Maybe they just didn't want to stick another Square game on there?
Or Square wanted $20 just for the one game...

Agreed. I don't "get it", but clearly a lot of other people are enjoying it.

Yup. It's like Minecraft. My kids keep trying to get me into it but I just watch them and think, "how is this fun?"

You'll never feel so old as when you watch a half dozen tweens play Minecraft on a LAN.
Minecraft I get: building stuff is fun. But these last-man-standing survival games I just don't see the fun in them: they're slow and plodding; I'd rather have a flak cannon and a shock rifle any day of the week.

I'm not a lawyer. Do we get our mods back or not?
Yes. As long as they can't be used for MP, you don't make money from them, and they don't steal assets/characters from other games (including other Rockstar games).

As far as I can tell OpenIV is still closed down because of the cease and desist they received. So, still bad.
At this point I don't know if that's a separate negotiation or if they're just taking their time. But as long as it followed the above (especially the bit about not being usable for MP) they should be fine.

And this is why E3 needs to be press/professionals only.

Want to play games as a member of the public? Go to PAX. There's several of them now.

Cutter wrote on Jun 21, 2017, 21:06:
I don't understand. They haven't even gone to court on appeal for the original judgement yet so how the hell can they be asking for an injunction already? I understand Zenimax's strategy here but I can't see FB budging on this, or even losing the appeal. So this is likely all sound and fury signifying nothing excepted wasted legal fees for Zenimax in the long run.
Shock and awe. Fire everything and hope that either something hits, or the risk of it hitting drives FB to the table.

IMO, it's hard to even take this seriously. 20% royalty? No single company on any tech product in the world is getting a 20% royalty rate. It's absurd to the point of being insulting. That would be $120/Rift.

I'm not so sure it'll be quite that long, IIRC Retro Studios has been working on something we don't know about since they finished their last Donkey Kong. Regardless, I'm hoping they release the Prime Trilogy again (would be the third time, lol) to tide us over until then!
The developer for Prime 4 isn't Retro. Whatever Retro is working on, it's something else entirely.

This is actually the short trailer. The full trailer is much longer, at about a minute-thirty.
