News Comments > PUBG vs Fortnite Lawsuit

If I remember right from when they talked about this months ago they aren't suing because of the BR mode, but because of the back end tricks they used for the Unreal engine to make PUBG work. They partnered with Epic and their programmers worked together to make the tech that involved getting that many players onto a map and not die. Now Epic is using that tech for Fortnite free of charge. It's all going to come down to the contract and how sharing code works within it.

All I know is that this won't work. Because the first thing they have you do is sign a paper saying this is the starting cost, but we'll just add whatever we feel is needed and you have to eat it.

I went a few years back and after everything was all side and done I payed and while paying was told by 3 different billers/admins that I was paying in full. 2 months latter I got another bill that was double what I had paid. Saying I owed this too because they had a doctor look at a chart for a consult. When you base cost off what you feel like charging and don't fix rates or have enforced standards of service this happens a lot.

It sounds like the only reason she's talking is because she's mad about the recordings. Or her parents talked her into the money she might get from a civil suit. I have a feeling that the website has a over 18 requirement, so he'll be arguing that if it get's to that point.

I had the SF vs LA game on while working. I liked the overall way the broadcast was done, and they did give enough info that I feel if you didn't play the game you wouldn't be totally lost.

I liked the overhead map view enough I wish they made a way to have it attached 100% of the time. As a player I found it more interesting to see this and how the teams moved/positioned. I do wonder if they'll make vods or replay files in the future too.

I hope they have some reasonable mouse designs then, because this mouse series is fucking atrocious.

Wouldn't that mouse series be part of the reason they've returned? I mean, look at how cool the appearance is of that mouse.

I thought this at first. But once I started using the Rat7 I really started liking it. I haven't found a mouse that even came close in terms of comfort and usability. Now that it's starting to go out after a few years of slamming it into the desk I had been worried about finding a replacement. Hopefully I can have it last long enough for the next series to come out.

Sadly, I think disclosing odds will get around the gambling thing in most places. Just they're still going to cry, when they have to do that, because people will realize how low the odds are to get what they want.

News Comments > Videogame Voice Actor Strike Ends
5. Re: Videogame Voice Actor Strike Ends Nov 8, 2017, 15:03 Linksil
 
I'm sorry but one of the first things I do is turn down the music and turn on subs because VA'ing in video games is still horrible. Unless it's an import. I thought they already got paid per session, but I guess not.

I'm confused by some of the stuff that the management tried to get in but didn't. Most of it seemed like common sense to have. Fining someone for being late or not even giving a damn/distracted during a VA session seems like a no brainer. I know if I show up to work and I don't do my job, they send you home and I don't get paid. Also it looks like the agents don't have to submit progormers for the non main character voices, but the studios can't find subs that arn't in the union. That seems way to constrictive. Maybe it just means that if your staff does voices you have to pay them like the normal VA's?

I don't see anything about royalties.

NOW they just need to start paying the real people behind the games like programmers and artists better.

News Comments > SWORD ART ONLINE: Hollow Realization Deluxe Edition This Week
1. Re: SWORD ART ONLINE: Hollow Realization Deluxe Edition This Week Oct 22, 2017, 19:05 Linksil
 
So i've been playing through this on PS4 when I got it cheap, but been wondering about the DLC. It's sad when I can buy the full game on PC with the DLC for the same price as around just the DLC on PS4.

That aside i'm really wondering if it's worth restarting the grind of the game. Between the cutscenes, fighting, skills.... everything grinds out in the game. Has a nice little online mode following though. To bad there will be no crossplay.

Almost forgot, no steam store page and the games coming out in 5 days?

I just wonder WHY they're allowed to patent this. Any person with 1/2 a brain would say this is just another way to match players online. Now they can basically claim ANY MM game is infringing on their patent and sue them. Most will settle because it's better then dragging it out in court and also exposing code to public record.

News Comments > The Division Free Content This Fall
6. Re: The Division Free Content This Fall Aug 31, 2017, 04:46 Linksil
 
This game didn't really get good until around the second DLC from the season pass. By then they had fixed most of the launch problems, and basicly Diablo with guns is the best way I describe it to friends. I'm glad they decided to treat this game right and keep up the free updates instead of just dropping it. I think they did it in part because the latest one would have flopped bigger if they didn't show support of this long term.

I played the alpha and beta's.... I saw nothing like what's in the video too. Speed seemed a lot slower except in a few bursts of a few seconds. The low/no grav places felt clunky and most people avoided them. Still going to try some rounds of the full game, but def one of the hype machines getting carried away.

I put way too many hours into this game and got a lot of the content. I took a 6 month break and came back to a totally new game and went from 95% completion to 55%. The base game was still the same, but they do as much tweaking/rehauls of the systems in game it's like a wow exp every 6 months. IE gotta relearn quiet a bit.

That aside I still get tempted to play it again... just another 100 hours... just another... arg.

15. Re: Tom Clancy's The Division Free Weekend May 5, 2017, 02:01 Linksil
 
Kxmode: What do you propose instead of season pass? I mean they can put out all the DLC and then just bundle it latter as a pass. But most passes tell you what to expect and when to expect it. And us as normal gamers expect a 3-6month delay off that time. I wish we didn't live in a world with seasons passes, but younger gamer's seem to be about instant gratification and that's what the pass gives them vs our older expansion pack model. Also people keep expecting more and more out of each expansion.

Crowdfunding I don't mind as long as it's done right and you know what to expect from your money. Also letting you into the dev and influence the game is neat. Although this is almost never the case. EA's just seem like a total money grab at this point so many never finish. I wouldn't mind new laws punishing those that didn't release a full product.

Because you have to really pound into the game to get through all the free content.

In difference to your asinine comment, I do not want to play for free. I merely want to test drive the product, like I do before buying other products such as cars and music.

Nothing asinine about my comment. The fact that you took it as to saying you want to play the whole game for free is just a reflection on yourself and your views. I agree with today's game market, demos and ways to try the game on your system before buying it is even more important.

I was more pointing out that they are more likely to do this now because the amount of content is enough, that most players, aren't getting through it in a weekend. This makes them more likely to buy the game that's over a year old and had a horrible launch. Also they have all the DLC content which flushes out the game even more.

Sadly I see us moving more towards paid alpha/beta tests for reduced trials instead of real demos.
