News Comments > Free Shipping to Compensate for Oculus Rift Delays

Well I guess that's something...

What shipping are they using, anyhow? Unless it's free 2-day shipping (or better), I'm not sure free ground shipping is all that impressive.

Man...I really wanna pick this up and like it. So much cool looking about it. Then I read real player reviews and it sounds fairly dry to the bone and unfinished.

Who to believe...
It's a fine line. A game like this is going to engage a lot of large scale RTS enthusiasts, but they all have their own idea of what a perfect game is and how much content is "enough."

How is anyone suprirsed by this? Halo is the marquee franchise of the Xbox. Of course MS isn't in a rush to bring it to the PC.

"a new desktop app converter that will make it super-simple for developers of old-school Windows apps to modernize their software with UWP"

Yeah right... as if a code converter ever produced usable code.
UWP is by and large a subset of Win32. If your game isn't doing anything too crazy, it should in fact work.

How exactly can they not support 4K? It's the same aspect ratio as 1080p, just at a higher resolution. This leaves me a bit stupefied.

There may not be much of a business in creating "games" that don't have gameplay and just tell a story. Those types of "games" may be better off as Youtube videos.
Perhaps. But I'd hate to think we can no longer have games like Half-Life because people stop paying for them.

Sorry, but indie devs whining about such things like this here really get on my nerves. It`s 2016, get over the fact some kids put a vid up, and then some maybe watched it. You can`t squeeze a dollar out of everybody.
In all seriousness, why should the LPers get the ad money from a gameplay video? Isn't the real content the developer's game?

Unfortunate, but not unexpected. This is why major publishers don't like doing story-driven single player games these days: everyone is just going to skip buying it and watch it on YouTube.

Freeze Tag is a hard sell since it means people have to be willing to not play the game at times, but damn if the concept doesn't look fun.

Nerds wearing T-shirts with game names/logos on them are a dime a dozen at GDC. So I'm not in any way surprised no one noticed. At best it would have been written off as a fan shirt unless you specifically knew the guy and his company.

Ditto. Despite some of the negativity here, this has my interest.

Pretty obvious that the devs made it happen just like Descent: Underground which also got some help from the inside .
I haven't watched it day-by-day. Was there a sudden last-second spike like with DU?

In any other context, if there was evidence of one person stealing thousands of X product, then there would at least be a competent investigation. Even for software.

Not saying that ip tracing is conclusive, but it's probably a good start for an investigation.

They were wronged, had hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of their product stolen from them, and deserve justice just like anyone else in the world.

And this is coming from someone who semi-regularly pirates media, apps, games etc. I'm under no illusions as to what I'm doing, I'm stealing. I try to do the right thing and buy any products I use for more than a couple hours, but that doesn't make it not stealing.
Agreed. It's not as if this is a fishing expedition. There is clear evidence of a single entity committing commercial scale copyright infringement. I don't see how MS's request is unreasonable given that.

News Comments > OVERLOAD Teaser Demo

Xeme wrote on Mar 8, 2016, 21:34:
I would say, just try the demo... it is short and sweet and it is free from any obligation. You can complain about the history of its lineage and how these new posters are brainwashed advertisers... but, within itself, Overload has nothing to do with all that tripe. It may actually be something that you may enjoy quite much, but, disregarded because it was early access or such...
Oh don't get me wrong, for a very early tech demo it's great. My gripe is with crowd funding, not with the game. I wish the devs all the luck in the world, I just think this needs to be publisher funded.

I really like what I see, but frankly at this point I'm done with crowd funding. It has been a disaster.

Either publishers need to assume the risk, or make this a proper investment where backers get a share of the profits from successful games. The current system of "pre-order and hope it gets made" is rubbish.

Because the technology has improved immensely. And that goes for both the display tech and processing tech.
