Next up:
Gamers can get sued if spouses are watching the gameplay without having a second license for the game. Kids under the age of 5 will have to have half a license.
Dogs and cats do not require a license at this time.

But does anyone charge their spouse to watch? Many of these streamers make lots and lots of money.

Source?

Is that surprising today? PDP earns tens of millions, and started doing Let's Plays of sorts. He's the highest earner on YouTube.

Gamespot estimates all of these are making at least a million a year

Some guy named MarkPlier does Let's Plays and earns $5.5M



Pretty sure they ask before they let's play

Those guys, maybe. Others are probably earning five or six figures without doing so.

I'm not saying this one way or the other, just that it's a data point you know companies are paying attention to. If you're a dev making $90k, and you see a report that some guy is making half a million bucks playing your game online, you may be a bit peeved. But you may also think it's good in the long run.

Yeah I just don't believe that is indicative of let's players in the lower spectrum. To give you an example, with a channel producing bi-weekly videos length 10m (for 3 ad blocks) with 50-100k views you make around 443 a month just to give an perspective. That's pretty bad considering you need to produce videos with actual content full-time for a bi-weekly or even daily schedule, and that doesn't even pay half the rent.

A single big video and many small ones (2-5k views vs one vid with 20m views) gives you ZERO payout. Yes, zero.

This is after the AD revenue changes on youtube. Without patreon and twitch (aka, stream subs etc.) many full time youtubers wouldn't even be able to exist anymore.

And well, a game without a youtube let's play is a game I am not buying.

Totally, but those are people caught in the crossfire, not the main point of contention in any of this.

I watch no let's play videos, or YouTube videos about video games, and that will never, ever change. I can't even fathom what information I'd get from them that I can't get from a solid text review, and I've yet to see a game whose basic theme and gameplay I need a video to understand.
Just my opinion and style. They're utterly pointless for me. For the limited amount of free time I have, I'd rather spend it playing something than watching someone play something.

Well, you see all the flaws a game has before you buy it and spend time downloading it.... which save you from wasting time and money or you watch them for entertainment But if that isn't your thing that's fine ^^

Since I cut TV out of my life youtube and streams replaced it with relevant content I find entertaining

News Comments > CIG Responds to Crytek
20. Re: CIG Responds to Crytek Jan 28, 2018, 20:20 eRe4s3r
 
I still don't understand what Crytek (the company) is trying to achieve with this to be honest...

Money? But at the cost of their entire company? Who is gonna license this engine after this lawsuit (no matter whether it's legit or not)?

I assume this is what the sinking ship part implies But honestly, I would not pick CryEngine for a project after this.....

So I guess the game is dead now? It really needs more content, something dynamic and player-influenced... but it's got nothing left ;(

Well it was good while it lasted I guess.

Compared to RTT3 and even OTTD (free!) this game is abysmally simplistic and downright broken. (PS. I refunded)

To give you an idea, you HAVE to assign a platform to each line, every train is it's own line. Doing more than 4 trains on 2 platforms is a nightmare, there is no time-tabling, no chain signals, no pre-signals. You can't do terminus RO-RO nor drive-through stations.

This game is graphics and zero substance ;(

And also, maintenance sheds are in stations, so 5+ trains can stop for 3+ days in a station on their assigned platform, and there is no way to prevent this.... broken by design imo. in OTTD you could make depots have their own line and even integrate them into your pathing

Cancels #Paragon to bandwagon on the survival of the fittest #PUBG theme, but offers refunds. Lame if you ask me. Was one of the only MOBAs I could tolerate. Now they push forward on a boring overplayed theme and continue to ruin #Fortnite
So much for creativity in this industry and doing something different....fuck these guys

Not to hit on the issue too much, but Epic is owned 48% by Tencent... and that means creativity was out of the window right then and there. They now make games for the Chinese market which is why Paragon flopped epicly.

Turns out if your game flops in the west it will have zero review nor youtuber coverage and that means zero awareness. TL;DR, Tencent ruins Epic.

Uh no it won't. Thanks but I don't want or need "apps" in my car, yet I do need options.

Then the future of cars will make you very sad, at least if what was said at the las vegas event is any indication...

wow. So seldom does a developer take responsibility like this. Kudos to Epic.

I am guessing because the amount of refunds is tiny If this had sold 200k units they would not do it.

Never really thought about it, but after reading the article it makes perfect sense. Don't really understand how anyone thinks automated cars are going to take over the roads anytime soon...

did you even read the article?
Lidar easily solves this problem. There are already several cities where vehicles are on the roads with no driver, it is already happening.

"Lidar"
"easy solution"

What? I'm not clicking it because it's clearly clickbait, but DOTA 2 has always been streamable within the game itself, and there are many youtube and twitch streamers, so... Guess I don't understand why they would lie in the headline. Nobody cares about facebook.

They are talking about the tournament I guess...

You all should be objective.

Since you read up on this so much, what exactly is Cryteks goal? Are they trying to get money (as in, backers money) or are they trying to shut the project down? And what will they do when they win? Force CIG to use CryEngine? Force them to cancel SQ42?

Because if Crytek is the reason this project collapses I will not be pleased but I doubt far more heavily invested backers will leave it at that.

You have even more reason to delay as the Vortex campaign as Tomb King has end turn crash bugs... a lot of them ;(

Surprises me none
2 words

Square Enix

One of the imo, most shitty publishers we currently have in the industry, only topped by Konami. Control wise I am really glad I had a steam controller for this one, since I could rebind it to my liking without Nier intefering. That's partially why I think this game is awesome. Had I to use KB/M I would have likely gone insane
