I blame it on preorders too though. Too many people preorder and it gives the developers/publishers this feeling that they already got you and your money. Add to the fact that they got anxious because they had to drop the PS4 release for X-mas to make the corporate big wigs happy and it was a recipe for disaster. Basically a half cooked game taken out too soon.
Eh, IMO they screwed up because they wanted to please everyone. They should have dropped the last gen hardware. Which... would have locked them out of the console market at that time, because next gen generally was not available. Their technology was just not up to what the game required for that hardware. That or delay an additional year, which is what happened anyway if you wanted a better experience at launch.

Man, the Steam score of the last month/s is consistently in the 85% or so.
This is another NMS case, though it never was that bad a case at all (except for old consoles), and it only will get better.

And modders are in a shark like frenzied paroxysm, that is an excellent sign, they are smart choosers.
I'd disagree. certainly they have fixed the game a lot since launch but it does not compared to NMS. NMS has expanded the game tremendously with free updates since the launch and continues to do so. CDPR has mainly fixed things and added a few changes. Upcoming DLC will not be free. Which I am fine with, and IMO NMS should also start doing paid DLC.

Elden ring was at 16.6 million copies in august, 6 months, and these were not partial deep discounts like cyberpunk.anyway, kudos to both of them, looking forward to seeing what they come up with next. CDPR is switching to UE5, I hope From does the same at some point.

This game is a solid pickup for anyone inbetween games. The graphics may seem childlike but the combat can be challenging. The updates should make it even better. Just shows that the Epic model works out well for steam users in getting an improved game.

They should male better games then, if you sell enough Valve takes a smaller cut
this point is laughable. Very few games sell enough, and the % cut is not retroactive. So it is 30% of the first 10 million, 25% of the next 40 million, and then the most favorable rate, 20% of sales after 50 million.

The Witcher is good because they had excellent source material. I hope the spinoff doesn’t suck like the way the end of Game of Thrones sucked.

The steam situation would not be as egregious except for the brigading and trashing steam users do when a developer chooses not to publish on steam. It is like you have to pay the mafia part of your income because their goons will trash you up if you don't. To be clear, gaben is not to blame, but it is a problem.

This has to do with powersupplies, a 3.0 spec from February. I find one on amazon, $270 for 850W, so may be a while before they are more commonly available

the weakest part of all cybersecurity is the people working at the company.

Can't fix stupid.
rockstar has 2000+ employees. unfortunately it is too easy to scrape linkedin and get contact information for a lot of them. from there the social engineering begins. for the people that do this, that is their full time job and they are good at it. So yes, stupid people, but also probably a lack of best practices training.

You can't be serious! When Valve had their HL2 alpha leaked all it did show was that the game was unfinished and Gabe Newell was lying all the time. And then he even used the leak as an excuse for further delays! After the whole episodes fiasko without any leaks everybody should be aware of this...
and that is a demonstration of the problem. you are using stolen information to justify trashing the company for "reasons". You don't know what build was stolen or what date the snapshot came from. Why do people need to "be aware" of what is happening with game development? That is probably a good reason why companies have stopped doing estimates like they used to. They just lose. And if they release early, there is bitching about "unpaid beta testers".

Questions rockstar will have to answer: What did they steal? How can it hurt us? What do we need to change? Depending on the answers it could set back their development a year or two.
When valve had their source code stolen it was pretty devastating. People playing the sample builds, criticizing, the steam source, all that stuff had to be rebuilt. It added a year to the launch.

Somebody wrote about leaks a few days ago. With a leak like this the company loses the ability to control how content has revealed. They lose that first impression, and with a game that’s made billions it’s pretty important.

This game would have been awesome 20 years ago, now, not so much. It is as if they are just recycling assets they own into new games instead of upgrading. Today you have one man teams making solid FPS games that look vastly better than this. Who is the target audience for this? Boomers? I am not interested.

Seems kind of ridiculous to throw away an entire IP after a year. Maybe get rid of the stupid floating weapons on your back and do a relaunch without all the online nonsense.

Hope #2 has some better writing. The stories were ok but nothing memorable. Witcher 3 writing and missions were of much higher quality.

I believe Witcher has been a really solid series for them, doesn’t mean they won’t cut it if it cost too much to make, but that would be a really stupid move in my opinion, and yeah Netflix has been making some really stupid moves. Doesn’t seem like they really are producing any more original shows, or at least ones that are any good.

IMO, they should be thinking less AAA and more AA, like something the scope of Portal. AAA has such a long dev cycle, is extremely risky and is a complete money sink that could take years to recoup. I'm sure their team is talented enough to create something focused and innovative that has a max 2 year dev cycle that can leverage their existing tech.
they are switching to ue5, that should free up a ton of people to do other development while maintaining high-quality visuals. Will be interesting to see what comes out of this
