News Comments > DEAD OR ALIVE 6 Announcement
2. Re: DEAD OR ALIVE 6 Announcement Jun 11, 2018, 15:42 Sacrifex
 
I've never persobally liked the style of combat in DoA games, and, the boobs have never compelled me to forget that, so, I'm going to pass and look forward to Soul Caliber.

For those that like the combat, and boobs, I'm glad you can get your fix though. In an age of everyone being offended and triggered 24/7, I was beginning to wonder if DoA was going to finally join the puritan mobs and become a victim.

Oh who gives a shit. People whine and complain just about anything these days, but monetising the shit out of games is par for the course for the capitalistic society we live in. I couldn't care less anymore about shit like that. This year 30 million Americans will probably lose their jobs due to corporate buy offs. Now there is something to complain about. Does anyone care to? Does anyone care to listen? If a game is good, Ill buy it and play it. If its shit I wont.

If people stopped giving these assholes money, they would stop doing this shit.

Just curious, since the entire US workforce is made up of approx. 126 million people in Full Time positions, and 28 million in part time positions (per the Bureau of Labor Statistics for 2017), do you always base your analysis on absurd numbers and factiods you make up, or, are you actually suggesting that with half a year left, around 20% of the country's workers are going to get bounced out of the workforce?

Well, with some companies I'd be hard pressed to believe them, but, I think we all know from their spotless record that their word is their bond. 100%. Everybody go pre-order!

When I played, the player base was far more toxic than I had expected given the style of game.

Add that to single player being nearly impossible, as you get no revives, and multiplayer being absurdly easy because you could near infinitely revive chain eachother even with only a second person, and I'd have to say that it may be a far better idea to just wait for Monster Hunter World, even though that game costs money. It's not even a fair comparison.

While I'd like to just rail on Cliffy B, a studio worth of people are losing their jobs, so, here's hoping they land on their feet and get back into the industry.

With that out of the way, in regard to Cliffy, it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. I wish you the best in finding a hobby that you can legitimately enjoy, and dedicate your time and attention to. So much time and attention that you never feel the need to come back to the gaming industry, and can retire in peace. Please.

News Comments > Destiny 2 Curse of Osiris Released

I think I'll continue to play Warframe, where I've had so much awesome content thrown at me for nothing that I've now put in 250 hours and I still can't keep up with the constant flow of new things the game puts in my lap to use/do.

Looking back, I can't believe I almost paid $100-some bucks for what I've heard Destiny 2 brings to the table. No offense, but when someone can say in a thread that they're happy that they haven't run out of stuff in the *two hours* they've played of an expansion pack DLC, that's just criminal. Consumers deserve better than that.

You do know that controllers have been around on PC for well over 20+ years, right? The iconic Gravis gamepad came out in 1991, and before that came any number of joysticks, etc... You're not being trendy and anti-console, you're just being laughably cheap.

News Comments > Third-Party Overlays Versus Destiny 2

Still pretty content in my decision to wait until no less than 2-weeks in to buy this, so I could feel it out.

By that time, some worthwhile population data should be coming in, any unforeseen port issues should be revealed, and, we should have some idea if this is actually a problem, or no.

I will say - I'm somewhat skeptical about this being a thing though, because I thought that Bungee said Blizzard was helping with parts of the port, and the "How PC's work" knowledge - and between Plugins and streaming, from WoW to Hearthstone and Overwatch, it would be almost inconceivable for them to get it wrong with that pedigree. I could be wrong that Blizzard was doing more than hosting them on the storefront, and if I am, feel free to correct me.

Time will tell, but I'm glad my wallet is safely out of the war-zone for now.

Yes, you are out of the loop, so stop trying to troll.

Destiny 2 has already lost 78% of it's console player base, and there are several threads on Reddit comparing the game to No Man's Sky, with 1000's of comments each.

Yet here you are, championing the game. You work for Activision?

If a better version of the game your playing is coming out a month later would you be grinding the inferior version or would you try the story/wait for the better version when its out? 1000's of comments on each thread... sounds like its doing fine to me.

Yet here you are, bashing the game. You work for Activision's competitors ?

Welcome to the internet. You're not required to like something else's competition to think/say something is hot trash while you're here.

On a related note - if this game had a chance on PC before, between the console population implosion showing a lack of depth/confidence from gamers, no cross-play to even bolster it if it fails to find an audience, and a laundry list of complaints from console players playing the game right now - even without the technical issues listed here - it would be completely insane to not wait a week or two at bare minimum to see if a steady population ever exists.

Being that every time a new update comes out the gear gets shaken up a bit, there's no need to rush into the thing - it's not like you're going to be at a lasting disadvantage.

I don't care if it's only $60, I'm not going to waste it to find dead servers in a week. If I wanted to do that, I could buy myself and a friend copies of Lawbreakers. Or go back in time and buy another copy of the first Titanfall. Or just tear the bills up. Bungie failed miserably at showing PC gamers why they should be parting with their money, and it's not our job to be positive for no reason, or buy the game anyway to make it stay healthy. Especially not because some shills said we should.

I wonder if this failure is because PC is dead, or, if it's piracy (because all PC gamers are filthy pirates), or, any of the other excuses Cliffy B has used in the past.

Old Cliffy B memes aside... maybe the game doesn't look terribly compelling compared to it's peers.

Make a good game and you can come to my house and kick my dog, and I'll still buy it. My dog is a dick anyway. Don't give me your slightly varied interpretation of the endlessly reiterated with a small change and expect my money.

Odd - I own Shadow Warrior (2013), but, it does not come up as an eligible title. It did find a few others, so I'm guessing it's just buggy.

Not like I ever had any intention of ever buying this scheisse, but if I had this alone would have resulted in a lost sale.

After getting a grand total of a week of play out of Titanfall, and now getting further crapped on by Zampella... yeah, I'm with Cutter. There is now less chance than even the previous 0% that I am going to buy this. Thanks for breaking math, Respawn.

News Comments > Fallout 4 Console Mod Theft Protection
36. Re: Fallout 4 Console Mod Theft Protection Jun 20, 2016, 14:24 Sacrifex
 
It goes ever farther than that unfortunately - after working for tons of hours, then someone steals it, and because it is not made to work with the consoles for a number of reasons (some technical, some otherwise) you get abuse from console players about a broken game and hate-mail about something that was a total labor of love.

That, I imagine, is going to be a very great source of frustration for the people who work so hard to put something out in a working order on the intended platform.

I certainly wouldn't want to deal with that.

I haven't even played much lately (heresy, I know), but I still buy the cosmetic DLC because it's priced well, and it supports a company which is just doing everything right, and with care for the customer. Voting with my wallet goes both ways, and they get my money, no question.

No fast travel sounds miserable. Fun in theory, but miserable.

This is dead on. The world, while not massive, is just too big to travel back and forth in repeatedly without some sort of fast travel or mount. It may be realistic to walk fifteen minutes out to a quest, to do stuff for five minutes, and then walk fifteen minutes back just to turn in the quest, but that's not going to be a fun half hour of gaming.

Add to that the existance of the Brotherhood of Steel flares, and all you would be doing is taxing fast travel (which is fine, by itself), and telling people who do not want to burn thirty minutes out of every thirty five playing a walking simulator that their only option is to side with the Brotherhood.

That part just isn't good game design.

News Comments > AMD Crimson Drivers Hotfix
1. Re: AMD Crimson Drivers Hotfix Jan 12, 2016, 12:06 Sacrifex
 
As someone with Crossfire 6970's, I'm a bit salty about AMD cutting off new driver releases to their pre-HD7000 cards.I game on one 1080p monitor, and they still get the job done on ultra in most cases.

I know they want people to move up and buy new cards, but you can still get updated Drivers for a 10 year old nVidia card. With some of the problems I had, I was going to go nVidia for my next build anyway, so it didn't really change my buying decision, but it's a bit of a bummer to need to wait out the next gen Titan for likely another year+ with new games being buggy.

The HD 7000 brought new tech, so, I can kind of see why, but, it seems a much shorter lifespan than I had expected. Hearing AMD talk about new tech again makes me wonder if this is going to start to be a recurring theme.

Just like how it got out of hand as Path of Exile, Rocket League, etc... got more items/DLC, right?

Until it's warranted, lets just put the pitchfork down, okay?
