eRe4s3r wrote on Dec 2, 2011, 15:25:The only reason there are big successful mods right now is because a group of people (The Minecraft Coder Pack team) is dedicated to de-obfuscating and generally unfucking the obfuscated code. If that wasn't happening, you wouldn't see nearly as many people bothering with it. Support would come in the context of them not having to expend so much effort just to get things workable for modders.
Not sure where the "mods need support" line comes from, given that theres like 6 billion huge mods that work just fine without.. ehm, dedicated support...
Granted you gotta edit the game files directly but i'd rather do that than suffer any limitations in their planned mod-support. Also theres already mod-support in a sense, given that theres mod-loaders abound that even allow access to different api's (so already superior to anything an official mod support could even do).

I hope the Rainbow 6 team dies for furthering fascist agenda's and the patriots win back corrupt AmeriKa. Tom Clancy's premise for stories are ffin' stupid and he's a friggin loony bat. In fact, he thinks protesting and dissenting is "UnAmerican," when in fact that's the most god damn American thing there is.

Am I the only one here who thinks the combat looks terrible, even pathetic? Love me some Star Wars, but this is a steaming pile of disappointment.

When the last game came out people complained that there weren't enough voice actors and all the NPCs sounded the same and were poorly acted.
So now Bethesda hires pros and people are complaining that the voice actors are "too famous" or they should have spent their budget elsewhere.

Or by using an agreement that's so long, with terms that most people don't understand and try it as enforceable? Those are pretty good examples. Remember that the average reading level in north america is between grade 6 and grade 8.
TOS and EULAs are still valid under US law. To get out of one, you must show procedural and substantive unconscionability in the contract. The Toyota stalker advertisement case is an **excellent** example of such unconscionability. That however, has no bearing on the validity of EA's arbitration clause.

His reasoning for not using Steam has nothing in common with EA's reason for removing games from Steam.
On a side note, I don't like his game, but I think Notch is one of the "good guys". That put's in an entirely different class from EA.

If you don't believe that it could happen, by all means, try and trademark a computer business called "Crazy Apple", and see how long it takes Apple to be sending you a letter.
Of course, if you own a company called iCloud (and have trademarked it), and then Apple names their cloud product iCloud, the courts will suddenly conveniently forget all about the precious trademarks, and will happily suck Steve Jobs' cock.
Trademarks only seem to protect the big guys with lots of lawyers on the payroll.

Well, good luck to you then, I’m actually on the beta, and it’s Far from anything related to a POS as you deem it, I just love how someone like YOU can talk about a game that you haven’t even played one min of. “Another Armchair critic who thinks he knows it all” The game is actually been one of the best MMOs I’ve had the pleasure of testing and playing through. So enjoy whatever boring life you have.

Yeah, of course the PC will get all the love until the next consoles come out than it's back to business as usual.

Could have said it in fewer words, but to each their own.Mead wrote on Aug 4, 2011, 11:42:And part of that finding "something worthy" equation means looking at the company that is doing the game and what history they have. If they've put out a bunch of crappy games, there's a lower chance that their next one will be good. Or if they've put out a bunch of great quality games, there's a better chance their next one will be good. There's also support questions, does the company have a history of supporting and patching the game, or do they drop it like a hot potato next year when the sequel comes out.
I couldn't tell you which games Epic produced, and I don't give a shit. The game is either entertaining on its own and worth the cost, or it isn't. The key to not getting screwed out of your money isn't nerdraging after blindly throwing it at something, but paying attention and making sure you're spending it on something worthy.
Those are all factors in the equation, just like the reviews and metacritic scores are factors. There's other factors as well, and the mix of factors can differ person to person. A lot of people just want eye candy and a shooter for instance, and could care less about every other factor.

If I were Epic, I wouldn't dare to open my mouth to say ANYTHING about PC.

That's not what I was meaning. The whole patch thing seems to be simply a way of trying to curry favor to people who are upset with the shape of the shipping product. These aren't really bug fixes or necessary features, these are things that are nominal improvements to the game. If they want to improve their game, they can start over from scratch.
For the record, I bought and beat DNF. I don't regret it, even if it was a terribly flat game.
killer_roach wrote on Jul 29, 2011, 12:26:Lulz. "Make it up" to gamers? Like you somehow got screwed over? They did you wrong, man, they did you wrong.
To quote the Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors: "Don't do me no favors."
Gearbox, you want to make it up to PC gamers? Publicly admit that you just wanted to get this clunky game out for the sake of finishing it and reward people's patience by announcing a new, proper title. Not going to be too picky, just want a title that was meant as a game, not as a kludged-together history of one game studio's dysfunction.
