News Comments > Stardew Valley Sells 1M
7. Re: Stardew Valley Sells 1M Apr 14, 2016, 02:15 yuastnav
 
Fortunately this runs flawlessly with wine on Linux. This is good because Windows 7 decided, after I bought and played this game, that it wants to get stuck in an update loop and never boot again. Right.

And fortunately this game also uploads the save files to the Steam cloud. I wish more games would do that, especially the ones where you don't save manually.

Really glad this did so well. I'm 55 hours in and I still haven't finished the first year, already thinking about a second playthrough which I really never do nowadays anymore.

I wonder what this guy is planning to do next. I know that he wants to finish the coop mode. Personally I wouldn't mind a sequel or some additional content. The engine is there and it works beautifully, game looks gorgeous.

Spin to win!

I love my spinfusor.

I really HATE HATE HATE how they changed the system so I cannot have a spinfusor AND a spare spinfusor at the same time. WTF are you doing Low-Rez?

"Extremist." God knows when people having equal rights became extremist.

If you think the SJWs want equal rights, I've got a bridge to sell you. It's all about the elimination of men.

I saw "elimination of men" and then obvious troll became TOO obvious. The gig is up.

By "elimination of men", I mean elimination of what men are and what real men are. The SJW focus is about trying to make men weak, powerless, feeling less than equal, not have the ability to single parent their children, and take away their manhood. Sure it will work on the weak-minded males out there including all those coming out of the woodwork on this site, but there are still plenty of us who are real men with spines.

Indoctrination of the young at "educational" institutions, ownership of the media, and now they're putting their extremist beliefs into games. They'll quote bullshit like "women are paid less than men" when they aren't for the exact (and I mean exact) same job.

So what's a real man?
For that matter, what is a real woman?
I assume that by real you don't mean "existing in reality".

Apparently the fanatic guy does.

Oh well, I've been happily using Debian for about ten years now. Don't see a need to change my distro.

I liked the game. I liked the gameplay and the shooting.
I absolutely detested the pay2win aspect which drove me off this game. Shame.

Oh well, will just wait for Overwatch to come out.

13. Re: X Rebirth Expansion; Patch; Demo Feb 26, 2016, 07:16 yuastnav
 
X Rebirth will never be a good game. At least not good in terms of the previous games. The game has been changed too fundamentally and you'd have to revert things on a very low level.
The basis of the game is just much more different from the other games, i.e. when it comes to building stations and managing fleets etc.

I still hope the rumours are true about how there is going to be a real X game in the future that is basically an upgrade of X3AP.

It has taken me about two hours to finish the main story line, which means this game is not overly long, but it's just so damn good that it's absolutely worth the price. These two hours have been a blast and I'm looking forward to the other challenges.

Unfortunately I have to boot up my Windows partition. At least it runs fine on my laptop.

Wow, I didn't know there are people who like it.
I'm not trying to be an ass, it's just that I found this game (at least the first one) to be utter and absolute garbage since none of the puzzles made any god damn sense and I've been fantasizing about ways to kill the player character in the most disturbing and gruesome way the entire time I've been playing the game, especially when he opened hist stupid trap.

It was one of the worst games I've ever played and from what I could gather the sequels were the same in that respect. Guess it's just not my kind of game.

Sadly it seems like most of Kevin Smith's work has disappointed since he made the move to full 'wake and bake' mode. Sad decline of someone who is very gifted...

Yeah... :/

I also didn't get this transition to horror movies. Zack and Miri was his last movie I watched. I wonder how Mallrats 2 and Clerks 3 are going to turn out.

Bugs and long load times are self-evident and are definitely not a matter of opinion.
[...]

Well yes, if you live in a fantastical world where the world "long" does not denote a subjective impression then the loading times are long. On the other hand the loading times are short at the same time so let's leave that fantastical world and come back to reality, you know, the world where us adults live, shall we Mr. Bistromat?
I for one, in my subjective opinion, did not find the loading times to be overly long. On the other hand I played Gothic 3 where loading the game took 4 minutes so it might be a matter of that I've been around the block for a longer time.

The awkward physical interactions are also not subjective,
[...]

Oh dear oh dear oh dear. Looks like someone was watching TotalBiscuit a bit too much. Let us look at what the word "subjective" actually means.

sub·jec·tive

adj.
1.
a. Dependent on or taking place in a person's mind rather than the external world: "The sensation of pain is a highly subjective experience that varies by culture as well as by individual temperament and situation" (John Hoberman).
b. Based on a given person's experience, understanding, and feelings; personal or individual: admitted he was making a highly subjective judgment.
[...]

Now the last one is the key here. It implies that how someone sees something relates purely entirely to that one person. Now in science or in mathematics the truth is a consensus agreed upon by the scientific community, for an example. And once such a consensus is established you can deduce objective truths based on that consensus. However, something like that is much more difficult when it comes to, say, how one finds physical interactions.

007Bistromath wrote on Feb 20, 2016, 04:14:

although it is granted that much of what is considered good UI is a matter of convention. The combat is, objectively and without doubt, bullet spongy. My claim that it is reductive is also not reasonably a matter of debate; the tactical situations you are presented with in CONSORTIUM are very limited, intentionally so, and the enemy AI is clearly primitive.
[...]

Which is why everything you have stated is a purely subjective matter and there are clearly people who enjoyed that game, such as myself.


007Bistromath wrote on Feb 20, 2016, 04:14:

Effectively the only thing in my post that was a matter of opinion was my statement that it was boring and that it was superlative in that respect.
[...]

That, my friend, is a purely subjective hypothesis.

So please, just stop. I'm embarrassed for both of us.

It's sad that the Kickstarter for the sequel isn't going to make it. I enjoyed the first game and the follow-up looks great. Hopefully they manage to secure funding through other means.
Agreed. This seems like a labor of love.
The writing is a labor of love.

The software is a trainwreck. They should be writing novels.

I played it last month and had only few problems with it. Was a cool game.

3. ‘The Division’ PC Version ‘Kept In Check’ With Consoles, Would Be ‘Unfair’ Per Developer. Feb 8, 2016, 11:20 yuastnav
 
Uh oh, sounds like there is going to be an opening for a new developer for the division soon.

[edit]
So uh what is the logic exactly behind that. Let's say the PC version would be graphically superior, as it should be, to the console version and people would know about it. Would that make people, who play on the console, less likely to buy this game? Because that is the only reason that's not absolutely asinine to downgrade the PC version.
And if it was a good game people would buy it regardless, either on consoles or on the PC so Ubisoft would keep the same amount of sales.

I just don't get this.

"We said this simple thing - “Why don't we change Godus into a RTS style game with God-game capabilities and landscape modification, a RTS game with a huge amount of variation and power, the ability to approach each battle in a different way?”

Uh, you mean like Populous? Like the game people originally wanted? Good for you, Pete, good for you...

It's the first time I hear about this and when I heard "combat racing" it didn't sound appealing. But this actually looks fun. The trailer looks good. Really reminds me of P.O.D. for some reason. Was a great game.
