Only one way to solve this, present your code to be analyzed. If your innocent, then you will be cleared, but seeing how this is a Chinese company. you can bet they are dirty ass guilty. So, either put up or shut up.

This is utter BS.

The crux of the matter, the 30% cut of any and all digital purchases made with an app belong to Crapple.

No one would complain if that did not exist.

Wow, there is no way I can take any comment like this seriously. So, in your mind, Apple is supposed to allow devs to host money grabbing platforms and apps for free? is that how economics work in your little mind? Apple is not the bad guy here, just like Steam and another platform that's allowing developers to host their apps on their platforms. Epic is looking for a free ride and that is all this comes down too. Get a life and get over your ignorance!

So, The Exotic Gjallarhorn is locked behind a dungeon, something Bungie neglected to tell people who buy the pack. Not to mention this is like the third time they are offering it in the game. Nice one Bungie!!!

Didn't he do the same thing with DayZ? At least he's consistent


He did, which Is why I posted about the red flag when it comes to anything hes involved in.

If he really wants to make amends, he needs to go full throttle on this one and finish it.

Any reasons? The only thing I can think of is that he lost interest in his DayZ projects before they were finished.

I think you just answered your own question dude. And yes, the guy is notorious for pulling this type of crap.

What really irritates me is that they have had plenty of time to build a new UI that's better then what's there now. The UI is just awful. At least Grim Dawns UI was really well done.

This just speaks of laziness.

She's pretty strong headed thats for sure.

I wonder if this is a career limiting move or will be the catalyst for better future for her... time will tell.

A good friend of mine was a game Producer for 25 years (can't mention who it is) and even at his old age, he got so tired of the change in the industry that he decided to get out of the vid game industry and do something a bit more helpful. He basically said that all the creativity and passion is gone and it's all about numbers now, so he couldn't do what he wanted to do and what he specialized in anymore (i.e. his skills no longer apply). So he was basically forced to change industries due to conflict of interest. He did experience a big pay cut due to some inexperience, but he says that he's much happier now. And this is a guy that shipped quite a few successful triple-A games.

It happens all the time when an industry experiences so much growth.

Funny you say that, I also have a good friend who is a game developer and he got out too because of the politics and many other reasons too.

And he owned his own company, and you all have played his games. I was so sad to see him shut it down.

Right Denuvo, that's why after the removal of your DRM that its been shown and proven that every game that it been removed from has had much better performance.

Piss off Denuvo!!

He's part of the "culture problems." Firing him would seem like one way to fix things, and if nothing else, it would improve morale.

My understanding is that's probably exactly what he wants (or would want if he's leaving), and someone correct me if I'm wrong, as if he is "fired" he gets a ridiculous payout per his contract. I do not know if that payout applies if he "resigns".

Contracts need to be written up that if there is bad behavior and they are fired or forced to resign they get noyhing. No one should be rewarded for this kind of behavior.

Its not about being happy, its about them doing the right thing. and the guy should probably even be charged for his crimes. But, he will be sued to death.

Honest question, what was the last Blizzard game you were really excited about? For me, it was SC2, 12 years ago.

Well, two games actually. Warcraft 3 remastered that was a disappointment. And Diablo 3 but that turned out mediocre.

And Diablo 4 if that ever comes out.

These devs are a bunch of dumb rocks. The community has been telling them since before release that the game is to difficult. Even on the easiest settings. The devs somehow think that even the lowest setting has to be massively difficult. Morons!!
