the fact is pretty obvious that PUBG just hit gold out of pure luck.

It's actually an interesting phenomenon. If you look at most wealthy and/or successful people, pure luck is responsible for the overwhelming majority of them. If one minor thing hadn't gone their way, none of it would have come to fruition.


It's not luck or a phenomenon. There is no such thing as luck or coincidences (your last statement actually hints at this). These are terms thrown around by those who can not see the big picture. Everything happens for a reason. There is no luck or chance.

Well if you wanna debate chaos theory and quantum mechanics, this is totally the wrong forum It is true that nothing is truly random in a chaotic environment except quantum mechanics, but this game could have not have become what it is 5/10/15/20 years ago. Technology, situation, society and market demand needed all to align and while all these factors were sourced in predictable sources the reality is that from an onlooking perspective they are in fact, luck. Meaning anyone could have done it in that same situation with the same variables, the dude was lucky. Without the twitch craze of the past 2-3 years PUBG would also not have had nearly the impact. So yeah, nothing really random about that, but still, it was luck.

We can only be thankful this isn't a EA game. And that too is luck.

Here's a nice little infogram of what's coming down the pipe for you in short order. This is how it works in Portugal. Enjoy. Might want to order that 55 gallon drum of lube off Amazon because your ass is gonna' need it.

To be fair that's a mobile data plan.... and compared to the ones you can buy in "neutrality" countries, it's one hell of a good offer too. 10gb for 5 is absolutely insane, I pay 6 for 1gb ~.~

The PUBG irony is next level.

Another DayZ (not a pubg dev property) gameplay clone skinned with a Battle Royale (not a pubg property) theme, complaining about copy cats.

L. O. L.

-scheherazade

I take it you're not aware the guy actually MADE the Battle Royale theme. So he has some legitimacy here. Even so, he still just comes off as a whiner.

Battle Royale is a Japanese movie.

It's the movie that "Hunger Games" was based on.

PUBG ripped the same movie.

Take a look :

-scheherazade

Well Creston most assuredly never has seen that movie or read mangas where this idea dates back at least 30 years, or read the Hunger games books for that matter...

If done, the fact is pretty obvious that PUBG just hit gold out of pure luck. The idea was not new, though nobody had focused an entire game on it quite so well. It was the perfect moment too, the engine was just then available for him to make that. 5 years earlier and you'd have had no cheap engine that could have pulled this off.

Huh, isn't Lumberyard based on Cryengine after Amazon bought the engine after Crytek folded? I am confused.

And that aside, Crytek still exists? Good for them I guess. But what the actual fuck is this lawsuit? CIG uses Lumberyard not CryEngine, and even if they used CryEngine this isn't "really" CryEngine anymore after 90% of the systems had been replaced....

I would actually be really shocked if this lawsuit went anywhere. Whoever made that original engine contract must have been a fucking idiot if they did actually sign a "we don't change engine" clause.

Not really. According to the suit, CIG negotiated a significant discount from the usual licensing rate by promising to exclusively use Cryengine, promising to prominently feature Crytek copyright notices on launch, and promising to collaborate with Crytek by back-propagating bug-fixes and optimisations to Crytek. The deal was, essentially: you get to use our engine as a launchpad at knockdown rates, in exchange for which we are along for the ride PR-wise and tech-wise.

Oh that's absolutely worth popcorn then

Driving through tight passages requires millimeter-precision maneuvering!

The player has to obey the escort vehicles' advice and carefully watch for every inch of the road to deliver the cargo in pristine condition.

Hmmm... This doesn't sound like something my transport company, @128kph, would be good at.


At least not with Traffic = ON

Wahaha did he really use crowdfunding money to buy his wife tits? That's funny. I recall seeing her in a video a while back and she didn't have much going on in that department.

Even if it may not be true, I like to think it is because that would sum this project up so nicely....

I would have thought the number was much lower. 20% does not even cover ink cartridges and batteries.

Huh, same here. I actually think a 20% recycling rate is pretty dang good. Considering how little effort is put into it, that is.

And just saying, on Anno 2150, recycling rate on "hard" when you demolish a building is 0% So whoever plays reality is playing on normal mode, what a casual!

Y'all people are missing the point. It's just yet another inconvenience of non-user replaceable batteries. Had we kept user replaceable batteries in all smartphones, we would've never heard about this, nor would it had ever happened.

It would be easily solvable, were it not unprofitable for them to do so, profits/shareholders above clients, that's what it's about, as usual.

I would like to see this spark a movement for replaceable batteries again. There is no reason the phone can't be water proofed and the battery compartment be kept sectioned off. Drying a battery off is easy fixings.

It would be easy, if they didn't put fragile as hell battery "bags" in to make the phone 2mm thinner. As long as that trend goes on, replacing batteries will be impossible. -> to water proof they glue everything up the whaazoo.

How the hell are they messing up this license so badly? They are just pumping out shit games left and right with whatever studio comes to the door, apparently.

Just make some decent RTS and ARPGs, backed up with the lore and metric tons of info that are available, and rake in the cash.

Don't be silly, they rake in the cash with these otherwise they wouldn't be made... on mobile that is. On steam you get what you always get when it has WH40k in the name. Utter unpolished thrash made by people who really shouldn't be in game development or by the lowest bidder.

I still think GW does this intentional though. To not hurt their figurine sales.... wouldn't put it past them. That will only change when the head honcho dies of a heart attack.

You know...I don't know why iphone users would be all up in arms about this, I would be perfectly fine with my phone slowing things down a little so that when batteries get old..I don't start losing screen time. Obviously I would love an indicator of some sort letting me know my batteries efficiency level, but I would rather things be a little slower rather then have to charge my battery in the middle of the day. (Android user here).

Well the only site that calls it a controversy is the one listed here, for me a battery efficiency indicator would be nice, and a way to throttle the tablet when I don't need the speed would be even nicer...

I knew a somebody named Seth when I was a kid, total jerk. That explains a lot.

To be honest, the history of the god Seth is quite interesting Meanings vary and nobody is quite sure what he stood for.. heh

The problem with automatic updates in Debian 10 is that to consciously allow that you have to trust the hosters behind the package updates. And I seriously do not. This isn't a hardened infrastructure like Windows Update (the one thing that MS did not fuck up, even though it fucked WU up in many other ways). This is some automatically compiled stuff non-supervised and without any oversight. You can literally count the days till this is hacked.

I'm not quite sure what you are talking about here but I suspect you have no idea how Debian updates work. I'm no expert but I know the updates are signed and I'm also pretty sure Debian packages generally consist of pre-compiled binaries these days not code (other than the packages that actually give you the code for the binary packages).

Uh.... what has anything you said to do with hosting providers? You know where Debian hosts updates? You might wanna look that up, before you trust this system, or any OS auto update system, that is.

WU would be equally impossible to trust if MS actually hosted their updates anywhere but their own datacenters and servers.

Also about the "safe"
the developer could build a smartphone app that could silently break into any existing VT20i safe in seconds, as long as Bluetooth was turned on.

At this point that can't even be called a safe, it's a metal box.

Also the company is REALLY called Vault Tek? Lmao

Well, you get what you pay for.. with Vault Tech you often get more than you want too.

It takes 3 to 5 years to make a brand new engine for a new API, so how is DX12 losing steam? It has barely support currently and new games with fundamentally new engines are still 2-4 years away. And once consoles use DX12 or Vulcan (both have the same issue) this will become a landrush on DX12/Vulcan. Considering how awesome performance is in Doom I would welcome Vulcan engines to be honest.
