I don't fault the publishers for doing this at all. In the end, why make less money when you can make more money? The blame lies with the consumers who buy these things. All it takes is 1% conversion among all users to cover the development costs (and potential lost sales due to the practice) and make a profit.

Arts and music major with no IT or tech schooling, eh?

If true, that's a bit of a red flag I'd think. I see a bit more than wrist slapping about to go down.

I don't think that means anything. Loads of people come out with degrees they never use and go into other fields. I studied history and ended up working as a tech monkey and sales engineer in IT for over a decade. The rest of it's been hospitality. Neither of which my education would have applied to. With the exception of something really educationally specific like medicine or engineering anyone can learn anything on their own and go on to do that.


Agreed. It makes for a nice headline but means little in practice.

News Comments > Divinity: Original Sin 2 Released

10 hours in. The game is fantastic! but...

It's HARD! There's no shame in dropping difficulty to easiest. In the beginning on classic mode you are very underpowered and need to acquire some gear quickly as your characters are essentially naked with no armor.

The game has a bug for me and some other people on Steam forums. Once you get past a certain plot point one area of the game becomes prone to freezes making the game basically unplayable in that section.

After this point the game has started crashing for me every time I load a game, forcing me to restart and load from main menu.

Since this is in the start of the game and so apparent I am sure there will be a hotfix for it next week. I still recommend it heartily!

Sebastien Puel was one of the pioneers who worked on the series’ earliest games before becoming Executive Producer for Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Black Flag, and others. “We never expected AC to be such a success,” Puel says. “We were passionate about history, but not sure it could have a mainstream wide appeal. I remember of the programmers referring to a cool game feature and saying, ‘With this one, we will sell one million copies!’ We are well past 100 million today.”

Proof positive that for some in the industry it's all about the almighty dollar. Slimy.

Nah I'd say that's a bit unfair. In the end if it sells a lot of copies it is an indication that someone likes it and it allows you to keep your job and keep making more.

I love card games but with Hearthstone, ES Legends, Gwent and many others the digital space is already oversaturated.

If someone put a new twist on it, for example if you had a card/dice CCG with a strong IP (something like Star Wars: Destinies) that might work.

I know someone who knows someone who worked there who said Chris Roberts kept showing up to work with a new Porsche every 2 months and ordered a 60k dollar espresso machine only he could use poor backers.

I hope it's not too open world, I liked the focused level design and some semi-open areas of the second one.

News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront II May Feature Microtransactions
14. Re: Star Wars Battlefront II May Feature Microtransactions Jun 12, 2017, 08:53 Bopper
 
I'm pretty sure gear, heroes, etc. will be locked in the start and then unlocked via exp/Battlepoints/whatever which you can buy with real money, a la For Honor.

Unless you pre-order or buy X or Y in which case you unlock stuff right away. I hope I am wrong. If you only unlocked cosmetic stuff that would be nice but I doubt that monetises enough unless you have a healthy player-base for a long time, i.e. Overwatch, LoL.

I assume they are getting help from Blizzard on PC port. I am optimistic that they will treat the PC platform with respect; Battle.net is a solid platform.

I'm sure there was some legit reason for this. As a developer there are often times when you can't meet consumer demands due to reason X and Y, especially when a publisher is also in the mix.

That being said, it would be interesting to know the reason why there wasn't a PC demo.

Yep I would have preferred a more sandbox style MMO myself but as far as theme-park MMO's go, ESO is decent.

ESO is pretty solid nowadays. Decent story, nice world, lots of PVE and PVP content. It is free to play but it is very annoying not playing without the premium subscription as your inventory is limited, so I suggest trying it out at least.

I remember seeing the physics, water effects, amount of items you can pick up, etc. and being amazed.

I think Skyrim is still my favorite with all of the added DLC and some choice mods.

I wonder how they will monetize without season pass. They will either go cosmetic (I hope) or will lock heroes behind paywalls that you need to grind to unlock, pay individually or buy hero packs.

I bought Battlefront on good faith, t'was a mistake.

I loved Battlefront 1 and 2 and was expecting a Battlefield game set in the SW universe. It turned out to be very arcadey, shallow, repetitive with limited content and replayability. Derp.

I hope they go back to making a slightly more linear and personal story. Less, better written characters with a focus on player choice. Semi turn-based tactical combat with deep character customisation. No fetch quests or crafting.

From what I saw in that statement, this will be nothing like that. Derp.

Hasn't a Sims title been in the top 3 on PC charts for the past 12 years? I assume it is because "casual" gamers buy the physical version of it while everyone else buys "proper" games on Steam.
