CIG says their switch to Amazon's Lumberyard engine made these complaints irrelevant,

This seems weird?

So if I sign a contract with someone to use their product and to promote it, I can then just say "Yeah but I went with another product, so it's not valid anymore!" That seems very odd. What's to keep a professional athlete from breaching a contract this way? "Sure, I signed with the Dodgers saying I'd play for them for six years, but I'm playing for the Yankees now, so that's an irrelevant complaint."

Very, very weird.
That's because you're not understanding contract law. CIG signed a contract for the right to use CryEngine, not an obligation to use it. All the restrictive language used in the contract relates to the licensee's ability to sublicence the engine, hence why it is referred to as 'the business of' throughout.

There's an excellent legal analysis of the MTD here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uw-Df748okk

If Crytek had said nothing, few would have ever noticed that CIG rejected their engine in favor of another...it was a bizarre suit from day one. It's what happens when you admit lawyers to the boardroom. Lots of billable man-hours to show for it, I'm sure
Crytek is in dire financial straits and hoped that hiring a prestigious law firm would intimidate CIG into settling. What they didn't bank on was CIG taking the lawsuit head on. Crytek was paid millions of dollars by CIG to use the engine - literally money for nothing given the project migrated to the Lumberyard engine - yet rather than just move on Crytek took it personally and wasted who knows how much on a preposterous lawsuit.

No doubt Derek will be here with some laughably contratian take on the matter. Maybe he'll claim that Crytek decided to keep all the strong claims back and will file them in the final amended complaint; maybe he'll claim that Crytek never wanted to win and was only doing it to cost backers money; maybe he'll attack the credibility of the judge. Whatever his take the project continues on and shows no sign of development slowing or interest waning.

News Comments > Unreal Tournament Development On Hold
8. Re: Unreal Tournament Development On Hold Dec 5, 2018, 14:45 theyarecomingforyou
 
The development of Unreal Tournament was poorly executed. It started as a tech demo that did nothing to wow audiences, then was slowly developed over time. There was no buzz, no hype, no killer features or innovative gameplay. As much of a fan of the original series as I am I just had zero interest in following an early access game.

Fortnite, on the otherhand, is actively developed and has extremely agile development. It's genuinely just a better game.

The servers were initially overloaded but it looks like everything is up and running now. It's because the Free Fly Week also coincides with an in-game event where they are showing off new ships. Understandable given that this is the first major event since 3.3.5, which added the first planet. But CIG should have separated the Free Fly from the annual Anniversary Sale to avoid excessive server load.

It's quite enjoyable seeing Derek rage at the success Star Citizen has had, especially given what a trainwreck his own games are. Perhaps he should finally get around to releasing Derek Smart's Desktop Commander.

Except it's not even that.

Can anyone imagine a super adv tech future where AI/robotics won't be doing every single mundane task for us? Even today, just about every aspect of space launches/flight is computer controlled.
It's about internal verisimilitude. Certain design decisions have been made for gameplay reasons (combat within visual sight rather than long range weapons; no robots / advanced drones; data requiring physical transport between star systems, etc) and then justified from a lore perspective. It's about creating a believable universe based upon the design goals of the game.

Another point to make is that people are notoriously inaccurate at predicting the future. Just look at the vision of the future predicted back in the 1950-1960s to see that and we're only talking about half a century - this game is set in 2948. An arguement could be made for any of the design decisions adopted.

I don't want to buy my favorite RPG in the fucking Windows Store....

This has been my sentiment all along. I gave MS Win10 exclusives its first go with Gears of War 4. The entire process, from finding the game, to purchasing, downloading, installing, and playing was so cumbersome and frustrating from beginning to end that I swore to never touch another Win10 exclusive again. A few peeps told me that my stance was unreasonable, and not wanting to be an unreasonable fellow, I recently bought State of Decay 2. While admittedly a bit better of an experience than the first time around, the process was still 10 times more lengthy and cumbersome than the same process on Steam, GOG, or Origin. So yeah, I'm done with MS Win10 exclusives. Call me when they release their games on real platforms.
This. The Windows Store is an abomination and has been no end of trouble. I had to download Gears of War 4 so many times only for it to fail before figuring out that it doesn't play nicely with firewalls due to all the tracking it uses. Games are also encrypted, meaning that you can't back up saves and they are easily corrupted as well.

I really don't care much for Steam these days, as the platform has been allowed to stagnate, but it's infinitely preferable to Microsoft's abortion of an offering. And while we're flogging Microsoft, they need to hire some graphic designers for Windows 10 because it really is inexcusable how bad the Metro design is that they keep trying to force on users.

Great, more PC developers that Microsoft can force to develop Xbox games and then disband when those games fail. Microsoft is a game developer graveyard, a place where studios go to die a slow and painful death.

News Comments > Fallout 76 Roadmap
11. Re: Fallout 76 Roadmap Nov 8, 2018, 06:36 theyarecomingforyou
 
FOV Slider: We havenít supported FOV sliders in our previous games as it is known to break a lot of animations and causes a lot of clipping to occur onscreen. You do have the option to zoom out in third person on PC by holding View and moving the mousewheel, but we wonít be able to have it for first person view.
Seriously?! It really is time that they ditch that ancient engine. FOV sliders allow users to configure the game for their particular setup - the size of their monitor, aspect ratio and distance from screen. Some people are extremely sensitive to motion sickness, which is a major problem if the FOV cannot be user configured.

This game seems like a complete mess from everything I've seen so far.

The driver of the getaway car is just as guilty as the corner watchout.

No, AT&T needs to wait until infringement is proved before disconnecting anyone. Innocent before being proven guilty and all that. Taking the lazy way out is not acceptable and should not be tolerated.

The family can just switch to another ISP. There's lots of choices.

Oh, wait...

The practice harkens back to feudal Japan, where if one family member committed a crime bad enough, they would execute the entire family.
Only in feudal Japan the family was not given 9+ notifications of pending execution with offers of preventative measures.
TRANSLATION: Executing entire families is okay if you warn them multiple times that you will execute them.

AT&T should not be able to legally disconnect any customer if there is no other ISP for them to sign up to, which is the case in many areas of America. Monopolies should not be allowed to bully citizens around. Internet access is a basic human right and shitty corporations like AT&T can go fuck themselves with a rusty razorblade.

Considering how expensive Blizzcon is, saving a 3rd party licensed mobile game for your #1 news announcement seems pretty stupid to me.
Exactly. It's about expectations. Bethesda handled things perfectly back in 2015 when they showed off Fallout 4 and then revealed that Fallout Shelter, their mobile game, would be immediately playable. More over Fallout Shelter wasn't excessively monetised. The mobile app was well received and gave fans something to do whilst waiting for the main game.

Blizzard, meanwhile, managed to shit the bed and piss off their most loyal fans. It was an absolute disaster.

Exactly. Fallout Shelter was extremely well received becuase it wasn't the main focus. It was something EXTRA for fans.

This is all fine if there is a very negligible performance hit. Otherwise in practice it is a tech demo.
Currently the game is not taxing higher end systems. I have a GTX 1080 Ti and with the latest build I'm getting up to 140fps - there are still framerate drops but the introduction of Object Container Streaming has dramatically improved performance. Given that the game is expected to be developed for a decade after release (or as long as there is interest) it makes sense to look for future-proof solutions. Note how this was all running in real-time without any observed slowdown, which bodes well.

I have to disagree with you on that. On my machine with high-settings at 4K, Star Citizen hovers between ~20-30 FPS. For comparison, here's the frame rate for big open-world games in 4K at their highest settings. GTA5 (60), AC Origins (60), AC Odyssey (50), and Wildlands (40). Star Citizen needs optimization, but understandable that it doesn't have it in its current state.

Current build
CPU: I7-8700
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1080TI 11G
RAM: Team T-Force Vulcan 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4-2400
MOBO: ASUS ROG Strix Z370-E Gaming
1st Drive: SAMSUNG 970 EVO M.2 2280 500GB
2nd Drive: SAMSUNG 970 EVO M.2 2280 500GB
3rd Drive: WD Black 2 TB 7200
Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA G3 850W
Displays: (2) LG 27" 4K UHD IPS
OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
I'm not running at 4K, so that's a significant difference, but here's a screenshot with the framerate on it for proof. That particular screenshot shows 112fps but notice the recent high (192fps) as well as the low (20fps). There is a LOT of optimisation still to do but it's dramatically better than the 30-40fps I was getting in 3.2.

There are still areas of the game with very low fps (Levski is a major one) but it's progress nonetheless.

MP1 & 2 was Remedy - Rockstar had nothing to do with them. They did do 3, though, and I thought 3 was a pretty smart story in a pretty fun game. I have Alan Wake for PC, never touched it, maybe some day.
I was really annoyed when Alan Wake became a console exclusive but what made up for the PC release is that they really put a lot of effort to improving the visuals and then offered it at a discounted price. I was actually blown away by the quality of the visuals and storytelling.

As for Max Payne 3, it was very disappointing. The game used a lot of cutscenes and they were rendered for console, meaning they were dramatically lower quality than the in-game visuals - lower resolution, lower texture quality and heavily compressed. It was a poor port.

Beamer wrote on Oct 22, 2018, 10:12:
But yeah, Spider-Man looks good, Last of Us was pretty fun (had its issues, I hated some of the enemies) and I'd love to play a sequel, HZD looks great, Last Guardian looks great, and if you haven't done Uncharted, while also not without issues (combat can draaaag) those games are must-plays.

I still think I'd go Xbox over PS4, if only because I prefer the controller, but your post has me questioning this, as what game is Xbox exclusive that I'd grab? Halo? I don't think I'm much interested in the Halo games anymore...
Console gaming has its place. I went with the Xbox One X because I have a 4K HDR TV and it was the better performing console. Forza Motorsport 7 is awesome and its nice to play the Halo games. I nearly went with the PS4 Pro but the thing that clinched it was that XB1X coming with 4K Blu-ray support.

I started TW3 but didn't get past the tutorial. For me it's just not enjoyable if I know I don't have the time to commit to a game properly and my youngest son is just three weeks old, so priorities. I can't wait until I have a solid chunk of time to get into a game like TW3 but it's probably not for a few months.

That said, my three year old son is already an avid gamer so at least we're going to be share that enjoyment of gaming growing up. I look forward to building him a system with all my hand-me-down parts. He plays Fortnite Battle Royale and kills a surprising number of other players.

Cyberpunk 2077 comes out next year. Just an FYI.
Well, they 'hope' to launch it next year so I can easily see it slipping. That said, that's probably the game I'm most interested in for the next few years.

Honestly, if I don't play what's likely to be the best game since The Witcher 3, because it isn't coming to my preferred platform soon enough, I feel as if I'm really only hurting myself.
That's fair enough. However, I still have yet to play The Witcher 3, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor or Battlefield 1 for more than ten minutes, even though I've had them for a while now. Having young children means I have to prioritise my time and because my girlfriend games on XB1 I mostly play Fortnite with her on my PC.

The Witcher 3 will swallow your soul for a few weeks. Of the rest, I bought DX:MD for $10 and have yet to install, I thought Shadow of Mordor was actually pretty boring and bad, and meh to Battlefield.

But yeah, if you like action adventure games with good plots, TW3 will just own you, so start it when you have time.
