News Comments > Evolve Countdown
17. Re: Evolve Countdown Jul 6, 2016, 23:04 jacobvandy
 
Not sure why they posted this before the countdown finished, but apparently it's the news that the game is going to re-launch as F2P: https://talk.turtlerockstudios.com/t/a-message-to-our-community/87816

They admit the "DLC shitstorm" ruined the game's debut and are supposedly committed to a "vigorous overhaul" of the game to make it better. Oh, and to avoid further scrutiny, it's going to be Early Access on Steam, lol... At least, that's what I assume it means when they say it will be available as a beta starting tomorrow.

Nah, the youtubers just understand Advertising 101. Nothing desplochable about it.

Did you watch the video? So outright lying to your customers (who are mostly underage) is Advertising 101? Getting them to gamble on the site you own by faking your winning streak is also OKAY in your book?

I won't ask you what you think about making fun of someone over the internet for a stupidly simple spelling error, that part is obvious.

To be fair, it's really not their problem if kids are gambling online, in any form. That's an issue with parenting in the home. Like any other internet casino site, they stipulate in the terms of use that minors aren't allowed to participate and that's as far as their responsibility goes.

You can do the same type of gambling with any game's tradeable items, it's just that for some reason the CS:GO community thought of it first. Or at least, that's where it seems to have gained the most traction...

You trade the item(s) you're betting to an escrow account held by whoever's running the operation and then whoever wins, whatever deciding that entails, gets paid out more items. It has absolutely nothing to do with actual CS:GO gameplay.

IMO, if you're willing to give away your valuable digital trinkets to a stranger to hold, you're just asking to be scammed. There's no telling when they might decide they've built up a big enough nest-egg of other people's shit and take off with it.

This isn't the first time 'Left4Dead3' has been spotted on Valve stuff, but considering the lengths they'd have to go to in keeping something like that secret, I would think they'd be more careful about what they're taking and publishing screenshots of... SO it's entirely possible it's just a cruel running joke.

The video shows him burn a hole through some sheet metal, even if it takes 5-10 seconds to do so. Obviously it's not as destructive as a sci-fi laser weapon, but it is somewhat reminiscent of the Death Star in how he's focusing multiple beams into one.

Anonymity may protect the innocent, so to speak, but it does the same for the malicious. Would trolls be so bold if they had to do what they do with their real names attached?

Not sure where anyone would get the idea this game was about guns... I remember from the very first debut they emphasized their different styles of melee combat. There are plenty of shooters out there, anyway, I welcome something different.

Of course, with those reviews, I'll be waiting for the 90% off sale to try this one out.

Despite the game not living up to all of its potential, it doesn't deserve to be review-bombed by all those whiny little dickbags. They're the same self-entitled children who spam comments on Ubisoft's site when they posted patch notes about balance changes, going on and on about how a 10% reduction in damage rating on the two most over-used guns in the whole game (SMGs with more damage per hit than assault rifles) is enough to push them into throwing away dozens or even hundreds of hours of play time and finally quitting the game for good.

Grabbed DOOM myself, through the third level so far.. Taking my time and exploring (I NEVER made it under par in the old games, lol) and it's pretty awesome!

Is it the actual dev team working on it again? Last I heard, they had moved on and allowed some community modders to start making official updates.

Traditional headphones/earbuds are too cheap, what they really want is to sell you wireless ones for 3-5x the cost. What are you gonna do, look like a loser with your head tethered to the device?

Ads are the reason I refuse to use Hulu... I know I've moaned about it before, but Netflix shoving video ads for their own content down your throat is annoying enough already!

PS is a company? Someone tell Sony.

I've seen Sony Interactive Entertainment officially referred to as PlayStation, the entity, before. Here's their headquarters: https://media.playstation.com/is/image/SCEA/scea-sanmateocampus-us-16dec15

If you leave your territory undefended, then yeah, it is as it should be... This looks like a fantastic change to me!

Studio head on Evolve, 2014: “For us this is a big deal, this is our proving ground. We are not just Valve’s bitch. I feel for the past 20 years we’ve been having to prove ourselves over and over. So here we are again, trying to prove ourselves.”

I did read a couple days ago about how they're now requiring you own FO4 on PC and link your Steam account to prove it before you can upload to Bethesda.net. So you put a halt to a lot of the smash and grab there, then if someone gets reported for stealing mods, it can be traced back and I hope they would take action on that account (such as revoking their license).

They're building upon the old engine, AFAIK, so that's why the animations and stuff are basically the same. I wouldn't even mind if they left the graphics unchanged, though, so long as they keep putting in new stuff like they show here (siege weapons and destruction).

Everybody is doing these VR shooting galleries now, though, which I'm sure aren't very difficult to put together when you have all the assets already done. However I am reminded that I need to reinstall KF2 to play around with the Sharpshooter, finally!

What the hell? is GTAV on a major sale or something?

Glad to see people supporting CDProjekt RED but wtf, buy off of gog.com instead.


No sale that I'm aware of, but GTA Online just had a major update which seems to add more than just a few new cars and/or outfits (for once ).

Pfft, all they do is bitch about drug addicts being "stigmatized" in games. Guess I should have checked the link instead of assume it'd be something mildly researched and interesting from Cracked or wherever.
