At a certain point games like PS:T which was designed for...640x480? 800x600? become unreadable for me, or hard enough to read that it's more trouble than fun to play.

Come on, Mr. Parker, I know you can do it!
HorrorScope wrote on Mar 22, 2017, 11:36:Not game copies do run out, but key contingents. In most cases publishers grant the distributor access to a certain amount of keys. When these run out, the publisher has to release more keys/the distributor has to order more keys.
Ubi seems to sell just Ubi and they have a sale on right now... Dishonored 2 is sold out, didn't know that was possible with a digital game, lol.

His tweets are irrelevant. The only tweets which are somehow relevant, are those from the Orang-Utan in the White House.Kxmode wrote on Mar 20, 2017, 11:06:
Looks like Manveer Heir - BioWare's resident racist - has left the studio to form his studio to do "amazing things." I guess that means he's going to focus on making games that not only push the SJW agenda but continues its openly racist themes. Pretty sure they won't sell. There's no market for that demographic.
I know I've been ultra busy with work and family but what the Hell is this all about?

Am I the only one tired of Double Fine riding on the coat tails of awesome Lucasarts games?
I want Psychonauts 2 dammit.Why, do you think, does Double Fine all these remakes? Because they do not cost much to produce AND they bring in quite a nice sum, which helps DF in making Psychonauts 2. Which is scheduled for release next year, if all goes according to plan.

sauron wrote on Mar 10, 2017, 09:25:22.5 mio. dollar is nothing to Zenimax. This will not even in the slightest influence the game developement or publishing process of ongoing and upcoming projects.
I wish Carmack and Zenimax would just settle this and get on with making great games. This can't be good for the health of either side, it makes both sides look awful, and it's got to be bad for creativity and for business. The only winners here are their attorneys.
TLDR: they need to grow up, settle, then get along, and get back to what they do best.
NamecaF wrote on Mar 8, 2017, 03:43:"wanker" might be a bit harsh, but it seems that he hasnt much talent to actually run a developement studio, producing a complex software product.
I'm sure absolutely no one is surprised. Dean Hall is nothing short of a complete and utter wanker who's 15 mins of fame was well and truly up after the DayZ mod released its first beta.
NewMaxx wrote on Mar 5, 2017, 20:38:Yup. The UI is ... well, very clunky. Especially the dialogue system is HORRIBLE, because they simply copied it from the old Ultimas instead of thinking of anything more ... modern? When i have a lot of text in my RPG, i look at PoE, Tyranny or Torment and i look at pleasingly designed user interfaces, where the text is presented in a good font against a well chosen background and navigate between dozens of threads without getting lost.
Feels too clunky.
LOC wrote on Mar 5, 2017, 08:18:No. And no. PST was based in setting and gameplay rules on "AD&D Planescape" and the 2nd Edition. Torment is based on the rules and setting of "Numenera", a tapletop RPG from 2013.
Because it takes place in the same world basically, and has very similar systems obviously.
Slick wrote on Mar 3, 2017, 18:58:Thnx for the info!
FFXIII-2 is my 2nd fav FF game of all time. Lits of people liked FFXIII-3, but I didn't, it has the "Majora's Mark" mechanic where the world is ending in X days, so everything you do feels rushed, I hate that shit in RPGs, I never finished Majora's Mask or FFXIII-3.
FFXIII-2 though is spectacular. Really gets back to the roots of what makes a FF game amazing after the abysmal FFXIII. Also the single best soundtrack in any videogame EVER.
FFXV is good too btw, I've replayed it twice. Can't wait for the new story DLC content. It's far from a perfect game, and many parts seem undercooked, but it's still a very fulfilling ride.
sauron wrote on Mar 3, 2017, 11:05:Have you played XIII-2 and XIII-3? If yes, have the devs learned anything from the abysmal developement hell of XIII? Are those sequels better?
If they release this on PC I will be all over it. I have played FF1-7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 (ugh!) and 14.

How the hell did No Man's Sky win Innovation Award...
Sorry I even bought into that and still waiting for a game that they where to give us.
VaranDragon wrote on Feb 28, 2017, 10:31:This is a review from someone, whon thinks that CRPGs should have several dozen classes and class combination, TONS of loot and A LOT combat. Well, a good CRPG lets you play a role. Which can be achieved with aformentioned gameplay mechanics or with the focus on dialogue and story, like it is realised in Torment. And Torments roleplay is VERY deep.
Ouch...this review actually goes a little deeper into detail on the game. And damn...it actually calls the game RPGLite....Double damn.

This sounds more like a nuke it from orbit strategy, targeting anything that even hints at infringement, regardless of actual content, and then issuing take downs for sites that don't even exist yet, but could exist in the future, and might have infringing material on it. That's nuts, and Google is okay with it, they just don't want more rules. I shudder to think what more would look like.
