News Comments > Are "Let's Play" Streams Legal?

Iím a bit split on this:

For single player, story-driven games, they can be devastating to sales. Why buy an adventure game when you can watch the story, and avoid the downtime of dying or getting narratively ďstuckĒ?

To make matters less altruistic, keep in mind that some streamers make shocking amounts of money, and their video content is almost entirely provided by the games they play. The people who MADE that content should be getting a cut of that, especially when itís a single player game where the video undoubtedtly cannibalizes sales.

The excuse of ďbut I never would have paid to play that gameĒ is a weak one...yes you would, the price just hadnít dropped to your tipping point yet. But if you watch a play through of it, thereís no incentive for you to EVER purchase the game. Again, this assumes single player, story-driven.


You gotta be kidding me with this dribble right? Your seriously going to sit there and call out streamers for steaming SP content?

Get over it, many people just like to watch gamers play the games. There is nothing wrong with that. Nor should anyone come down on these guys for it.

There are a lot of people out there that are unable to play many of these games for whatever reasons. If they choose to watch someone play a game, they more power to them.

But dont sit there and say this is wrong, when its not. Your basically calling those who watch streamer pirates. And thats bullshit.

And by the way, many of these people who watch these streams are also gauging the game like a demo to see if its even worth a shit to buy. You are completely delusional about your view about this. As for the NFL comment, theirs a big difference when your re-broad casting a TV show or sports event.

They are going to fuck up the Denuvo so badly with so many layers of DRM that its going to cause really bad performance issues. There is no way you layer several a DRM like this and not have some kind of performance issue.

I'll consider this when they relent and put it on a slightly less offensive service.

This is M$ being M$. the same old bullshit just another day.

A shame too, this game looks like it could be a lot of fun.

Honestly, I really hope this game fails. The devs were told over and over on the forums about making this game playable both ways. pvp and PVE in separate instances for those who like to play it on both sides. The devs are choosing to thumb their noses at the PVE community. So, I'm hoping this game gets all kinds of bad reviews so it forces the devs to make those changes.

Loved the first game, but yea EA has no intention of doing another one. And even if it did, they would try and put some stupid ass loot crate in so you could buy the heroes.

What they really mean is that they have designed the game is such a way that the online requirement is there to try and keep people from hacking the games currency.

I dont understand why every damn game has to be micro transactioned to death. Its like you cant even buy a game anymore without this bullshit raising its ugly head up.

News Comments > More Destiny 2 Progression Complaints
1. Re: More Destiny 2 Progression Complaints Jan 18, 2018, 10:10 Darks
 
Yea, this one is a real bitch. Bungie screwed over everyone with this bullshit. You can Speed run one of the hidden sectors in less then 3 mins. But with the new 10 min cool down its fucks you over so you cant speed run these areas. They could at least set the cool down to 5 mins. That would fix the issue.

I dont understand how they mange to keep fucking up so much. Its not like getting the faction tokens is a game breaking deal.

This exploit was only in one Lost Sector in the EDZ, all Bungie had to do to fix this bullshit was to make it so once you left the area the door would not reopen to allow you to backtrack. Bunch of idiots at Bungie.

If it's based on Alien and Aliens it might be cool, the latest movies hardly offer anything worth making a game over.

Totally agree on that.

I love the Aliens movie, that is the best setting they could go for.

News Comments > BATTLETECH Multiplayer Changes; Linux Edition Delayed
12. Re: BATTLETECH Multiplayer Changes; Linux Edition Delayed Jan 17, 2018, 15:14 Darks
 
Well, I reached out to HBS to get an answer about the new changes and if they have added Coop. Sadly, the answer is no. heres the replay.

Hi Rick,

We know that there are a lot of people who would love to see a co-op option for BATTLETECH but it was never on our list of features for the Kickstarter.

We'll be releasing PvP at the launch of the game but would love to eventually add the option for co-op.

Thanks for letting us know how strongly you feel about this feature - we really appreciate it.

Best,
Robin

While I am bummed that Linux support will come after launch, I have full faith that HBS will deliver on their promises. The SR games were awesome and had Linux clients.

I don't think this is campaign co-op so much as skirmish co-op but that's at least a start. If MW sells well for HBS, we might see either an update for campaign co-op or a new game with campaign co-op from the ground up. Full disclosure, I backed this thing for $250.

OK, that was what I was hoping. I knew it wasn't Campaign Coop. but it seemed to me that it has Skirmish Coop now. which is a good thing.

So, they didn't outright say it has Coop. but thats what they seem to be implying here. Did anyone else get that same feeling?

If so, his just went on my list of games to get for sure.

I never understood why they wanted to go all PVP in the first place. Nothing like playing Coop with a friend or 2 controlling their own Mechs or a lance.

For years and even at E3 I would always get on Mitch Gitlemas ass about the lack of Coop. Maybe hes finally seeing the light.

Im not wasting anymore time with you, people like you will never listen, in your mind no matter what anyone says you are always right. You want an example, go find a dictionary.

Can't even name one thing. I mean, how can you be right when you can't name a single thing supporting your claim?

Where in a dictionary would I see middle easterners fucking up the US? Sounds more like an encyclopedia thing, but even then, I can't imagine anything they're doing that we're not already doing in greater numbers.

Its very apparent you dont pay attention to whats going on in Europe. Again, Delusional!!!

Well the reality is if all those people from all those countries come here than it's going to be just as shitty here.

How does that follow at all? Immigrants come here all the time and make decent lives for themselves. They go to school, get jobs, raise families. Why does them coming from a war-torn place mean that suddenly the US will be a worse place for having them here?

Because there's only so many resources and jobs to go around. This reminds me of the movie Elysium where they show the ruined Earth and the paradise space station. Spoilers, the good guys win and the end shows poor Earth people flooding into the paradise... but the first thing that has to pop into any rational mind is "well it won't be paradise for long."

Not saying the U.S. is paradise by any means, but the point is it's not like the solution to the problems countries like Haiti face is to just move everyone living there to the U.S. That's a terrible simplistic notion. The better avenue is to use our wealth to help those people in their communities make changes for the better.

P.S. What Trump said was terrible from a political standpoint, which is his usual "problem." Though I put problem in quotes because his no bullshit speaking style is exactly what his core base love him for.

Again, people thought this about the Irish and the Italians. American survived. Prospered, even. Often, immigrants are hungrier than us, because they've seen how bad it can get.

And again, they're generally taking the lowest paying, least skilled jobs available. Who wants to be a migrant farmer? Certainly no Americans.

Beamer, you so far off base on this its not even funny. That used to be the case. The world has changed and so has America. your talking about migrants from south america. most of us are talking about the fucking trash coming from the middle east thats fucking everything up. Big Difference!!!

Again, sounds like what people said about the Irish and Italians.

What did they fuck up? And do you know any personally? Do you work with them?

You are so fucking delusional!!!

The ESA is very confused, Diversity was the greatness of the country, but that was many generations ago. The problem now is, we cant afford to open the doors to every asshole who feels the need to come here and sponge off the system.

The system cant support all of these immigrants now. And on top of that they come here and want to change our way of life and its ripping the country apart at the seems.

Sorry, but we need to stop letting so many in and fix the issues within. The Ship is sinking and these idiots cant see that.
