how many on uPlay are not from Ubisoft?

Uplay actually has games from several other developers, example
Same with Origin: R6
I know Valve used to sell games on other platforms too. Dunno what happened.

Hacking is a cost of having the great open platform that is PC gaming. We already have consoles. If that's what you want, go play on those instead! I'm not ready to sacrifice all the advantages like modding and fan patches just so that I don't meet a hacker from time to time.

Slick already talked about this. If you don't agree with his comments, refute them. Don't repeat what he's already responded too, you're just taking the conversation round in a circle.

What a strange thing to say on a forum on the internet... I'm not sure what you're saying. Slick wants console security, I told him to play on console. I didn't see someone state my opinion yet. I didn't read all the posts in the entire thread though, because there's too many and they're too long, and I don't think that that's required to be able to respond.

But that does absolutely nothing to discount the irony that the most secure platforms to have a clean competitive match today is on fucking consoles.
Maybe people should wise up a little and stop trying to have serious competitive scenes online. Serious mode used to mean a LAN party. Pretty hard to get away with this shit if a guy can watch over your shoulder.

It's 2016, and your solution is "LAN party".

Jesus christ.

I gotta say though.. "Maybe people should wise up a little and stop trying to have serious competitive scenes online." is itching to be my new sig. It's not quite as asinine as my current one, but it's damn close.

Like I said, hacking through software is %100 not happening on consoles right now, the hundreds of millions of console gamers that play hacker-free matches 24 hours a day. And your security measure for the PC is "have a guy look over your shoulder".

Jesus christ.

Do you like complex mods, total conversions, mods for games without mod tools and fan patches? If so, then you should be against UWP.

This isn't a conspiracy theory. Microsoft wants a closed platform. They want all the money and the death of their competition.

You mean like Valve? For which having Steam as quasi monopoly wasn't enough so they wanted to take over the whole PC game world with their SteamOS.

Steam isn't an app store. In fact, it supports tons of platforms. There's also alternatives to Steam. You can even buy steam keys from other sources than Steam. It's not the same thing at all. I don't think that you understand the limitations of UWP.

They're been trying to do this for a long time and now they're actually taking serious steps towards it with Windows 10 and UWP. All of this is bad for the consumer. I'm strongly against all of this too, especially the UWP.

Maybe one day Steam OS(linux) will be the OS for gaming?

I'm a bit bummed about multiplayer. I don't feel like this will be a positive. Unless it's some kind of differed multiplayer. I'd rather he add more to the base game. There's a lot to be improved too. Still, amazing game.

What's bad about pokemon "hunters"? They're doing exercise and getting some vitamin D. The game is very simple, but that doesn't make it a bad thing.

You would think that if a dev was offering a steam key that it would be on the up and up and through Steam.
Is this the developers fault?
The article does a poor job of explaining what happened.

or the scumbags themselves are filing illegitimate chargebacks and small indie studio simply cannot handle the workload involved with disputing them all. A bank will give their customer the benefit of the doubt if the merchant in question does not respond in time to a chargeback

If this is true and developers are aware of the risks involved it comes back around to being the developers fault for not handling their side of the business properly.

Sure, when it's a big developer, but smaller indies simply don't have the time and ressources to do that kind of stuff. Also, awareness of this fraud is somewhat new and few people know about it.

Edit: also, it happened to Ubisoft and they dealt with it like you said. They deactivated the keys. The public complained so hard that they had to give away the keys for free. They were basically robbed.

Hey apathetic devs and publishers... stop it. Even Microsoft gets it now. We dont want another launcher. Just put it on steam or sell it on gog.com.

Just knock it the hell off.

Easy for us to say, but Steam charges quite a fee to sell your game, when you are big enough why would one simply surrender such revenue? I get our side of it, but I get their side as well.

Yeah, you can't blame them, but it's actually also good for us. Competition is good for consumers.

I'm not convinced competition is that good - just look at sports in the UK. I used to be able to watch football for the price of my TV License. Now, if I want to watch it I need a TV License, Sky Sports Subscription, BT Sports Subscription and pay for EuroSports too ... I missed the part where it was an improvement!

I have no idea what you're talking about, but since you need all of these different things to watch one sport, it seems different. With gaming, you need only one of the many platforms to play one game.

I played it a lot, but at a certain point the game completely breaks down. It's fun, but it could have been so much more fun with better design decisions.

I went ahead and bought DOOM while it was on sale. The demo didn't impress me but I decided to give the game another chance. It's really a mediocre shooter. All I want is shoot but I'm constantly hindered by the gore kill mechanic where the enemies are dazed instead of just dying. Furthermore the chainsaw is absolutely ATROCIOUS in this game. I cannot believe they were able to fuck this up so badly. What's wrong with the original chainsaw from Doom? I will never understand this.
I'm happy that it has Vulkan support but I'd be much happier if more games would include it.

Your opinions on doom are wrong. Everything you said about it is false.

I'm kidding, but that's what I've been told repeatedly on this site for stating the same ones.

I loved Blood 2

I didn't like Blood 2 at the time because it was so different from Blood 1. Also, it had way too advanced textures and models for the time and you needed a beast of a PC to run it. I replayed it years later and I actually enjoyed it. Nowhere near the level of Blood 1 of course.

Hrm, good luck; a well done Blood sequel/revival/reboot etc. would be great!

It's been like 20 years since I played Blood, but I remember mostly being entertained by the weapon choices, the level design doesn't really stick out as particularly strong, etc. I'll try to remember to pick it up on Gog next time it's on sale.

The level design is my favorite part of Blood. It was excellent. The best of all the Build engine games in my opinion.

In my mind, there's no way they can release something close to the original. Everything was too top notch. The team was killing it and making all the right decisions. Duplicating that requires too many variables to set into place. I'm willing to let them try though. I usually don't like these reboots, but the Blood franchise is dead for real now, so what the hell.

News Comments > Windows Gaming Survey
13. Re: Windows Gaming Survey Jul 8, 2016, 23:24 ItBurn
 
I feel like the section asking you why you prefer PC gaming is a joke... It's like it's trying to convince the person taking the survey that PC is better. Also, how can PC gaming be improved by Microsoft? Leave it alone!

Edit: From what I understand(I may be completely wrong, but so far I've not been told otherwise), UWP is an app store. It has several disadvantages. The main one for me is that you don't have access to your files and executables, so the only modding possible is limited pre-baked toys like Snap Map. You can get mods like Bethesda does(and only Bethesda it seems), but they'll be limited compared to what's currently possible by modifying the files. Exemples are the script extender and ENB.
