News Comments > Dishonored 2 Released
10. Re: Dishonored 2 Released Nov 11, 2016, 16:29 Leper
 
Can't wait until the public beta test is over, the game is patched and goes on sale and then I can finally buy it.

You're taking a risk pre-ordering a game or buying day-one. That's especially true with a game from Bethesda now that reviewers don't get early access.

"To celebrate the delay of Squadron 42 we have launched a new ship, you can purchase Spam Javelin for £138971 (or £139971.99 with the Anus Aerospace skin) for 1 week only"

Full disclaimer, I am a backer but I feel in 40 years I will tell my

grandson that I backed this game more for a laugh about the fact that I backed it than for actually playing it.


Hey at least you took a risk and either way it goes, you're part of something big. Just like this year's election, nobody actually knows for sure how things will end even if things are looking one way. The inevitable post-mortem with all the internal dealings will have some entertainment value if nothing else.

Although Videosift is good at finding videos, it's pretty crappy at displaying videos. That's probably the main reason people complain. Especially on mobile.

"Let's investigate this a month+ after the game came out, and nobody pays any attention to the ad anymore! That'll really make it look like we care, and we're Serious Folks who are Not To Be Messed With!"

:-yawn-:

How else do you do it? The game only came out a few weeks ago. Before that it was impossible to do the compare. So, account for a couple weeks for dissatisfaction to build and make a complaint, a couple of weeks to investigate the validity, and a couple of weeks to formulate and execute a plan of action, and we're at the current date. How could it have been any faster?

It probably couldn't have been faster, but look at what these guys can actually "do."

The ASA has the power to have advertisements it believes are in breach of its code of conduct withdrawn, and prevent them from appearing again

Ooooh, they can make you take the ad down!!! That'll REALLY hurt two months after the game's been released. Where's the 5 million GBP fine?

Their "power" is like the Invisible Boy who can only turn invisible if nobody's watching.


Better than nothing. Even if their power is limited it's still bad publicity for the company and Sony, sets a precedent for further action such as lawsuits and sends an official message.

News Comments > Titanfall 2 4K Trailer
3. Re: Titanfall 2 4K Trailer Sep 28, 2016, 16:40 Leper
 
I'm still a bit confused why EA gave them the greenlight to make Titanfall 2, I know the first one was a financial success but that was because on xbox one the selection of games was rather thin. This looks pretty but where is the physics and destruction? Large stompy robot can't even move a shipping crate or down a tree.

I imagine it's cheaper to make a sequel using an existing engine, tweaking assets and adding some features, then to create a new IP. They may have also started working on 2 before 1 was complete which makes it more of a decision to cancel than to greenlight. Like most every company, they want to turn this into a CoD franchise where each iteration has great profit margins.

Glad Everspace made the list, even if only at #10!

Thanks for pointing this game out. It looks right up my alley.

While I agree this looks like they're pulling out all of the stops, I think I might be a bit disappointed at the setting. The West was super popular back in the early 70s when the original debuted, but much less so these days. I wish they'd chosen a setting that is more popular. Perhaps Medieval World, given the popularity of GoT. Or some kind of Futureworld.

I suppose it could be argued "The West hasn't been done in a while!" And doing The West is probably cheaper than other options, like the Future. Still I can't help feeling like this was a missed opportunity. Roaring20s World would have been awesome.

I'm not that familiar with the material, but is it possible that they could switch worlds? Maybe that would be too gimmicky.

News Comments > Deus Ex Mankind Divided Patch Adds DX12

They say DX12 may improve better performance on some systems, but offers no visual or gameplay differences.

That's funny, because you sure implied that it would look better back when you were pimping it heavily.

Well if DX12 were to increase performance, you could up the graphic settings and arguably get better visuals while maintaining the same framerate. Anyways they probably they hadn't implemented it at the time and were just were parroting whatever they were hearing from Microsoft as far as gains.

Playing this with the Xbox One controller is really cool. Controller force feedback has come a long way since the N64 Rumble Pak! I'm sure using a wheel would be better, though.

News Comments > Red Dead Redemption PC Rumors Resurface
8. Re: Red Dead Redemption PC Rumors Resurface Sep 6, 2016, 10:48 Leper
 
I would much rather them devote the resources to the next red dead or gta and have it on pc from the start.

Who's to say they aren't working on these things also? Assuming this is true, the resources on the port are not resources they moved from their big projects - this would be a separate team that likely specializes in ports with their own budget, etc. Rockstar has multiple teams and is capable of working on multiple things simultaneously. This would be just another way to make money after they saw that there was demand (I constantly see people on here whining about how RDR never came to PC).

Should it have been included in the original game? Old-school gamer logic says yes. Old-school gamer logic doesn't make MONEY, however, and I doubt you go to work and hand out YOUR time for less money than what you could be getting.
Well I'm glad no-one told this to the devs at CD Projekt Red, who make plenty of money treating customers with respect and releasing expansions with as much content as most full games.

Unfortunately I don't think every studio can function the way CD Projekt Red does. Deus Ex isn't exactly taking the sales charts by storm and I'm guessing they'll be lucky if they break even (even by screwing over their customers with all this DLC as implied).

I seriously doubt that we'd have seen a large expansion to this game if they had gone that route since they'd have to wait to see how the base game was selling before greenlighting it. So a few small pieces of DLC might be the last we see of DX. Better than nothing?

This is the 61st piece of paid DLC they have released for this game. That's just crazy...I long for the days when this nickel and dime DLC was collected together and released as a big expansion pack.

Assuming the total price is the same, why would does it matter if you get the content in chunks over a period of time or all at once at the end? Wait to the end if you want to wait until the end. Or are you saying you want the same content for cheaper? Well yeah, who doesn't...

News Comments > Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Patched
53. Re: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Patched Aug 24, 2016, 18:51 Leper
 
Sounds like the 6 month delay wasn't quite long enough to get everything polished up. I kept hearing in the interviews that this was developed by a "small team" and it probably didn't get the resources it deserved to "Make Deus Ex Great Again!" This was not a AAA budget game despite what some may think. There's a lot of potential in this genre and hopefully something like Cyberpunk 2077 with it's large team and budget will blow our minds in a few years. In the meantime, I still think Deus Ex deserves a buy. Even with all the complaints of DLC, graphics, performance, story, etc. it still sounds like the essence of Deus Ex at its core has survived. That's good enough for me.

As much as I liked Human Revolution, I'm still holding off on this one, as I still have to finish Fallout 4 before I purchase another game. Yes, I'm trying to be disciplined.

The sad truth in making a "thinking man's" game like this is that the target audience is the very people that are too wise to pre-order. We'd rather bide our time in the shadows, gathering intel on whether the game is good or not, then drop down from the ventilation shaft to deliver a 40% off purchase when it's weakened by poor sales. Catering to the twitch gamers with poor impulse control or else gullible casuals who buy into PR hype seems to be best way for a developer to go these days.

I really wish that the franchise could get a massive budget to deliver everything we'd want in a DX game, but ulimately I just hope this entry sells well enough to keep it limping along.

I tried to watch Firefly and i could not take it and stopped at episode 3. I thought it was very bad.

I also thought it was very cheesy and stopped watching it after a couple episodes (and I generally like sci-fi). This was both during the original airing and also on Netflix a few years ago. There was just something about the old west theme or the cheesy special effects that lost my interest. I'm sorry to say that it could have been done better and might have succeeded if it had been. I liked Serenity, though, and I might give Firefly another chance someday.

My Win10 desktop after a couple days work so far:

Clean.
Except for that ugly ass excuse for a start menu that takes up 28% of the screen.

Being customizable, it's apparently exactly as large as he wants it to be.
