They should have dropped the last gen hardware. Which... would have locked them out of the console market at that time, because next gen generally was not available. Their technology was just not up to what the game required for that hardware. That or delay an additional year, which is what happened anyway if you wanted a better experience at launch.
I blame it on preorders too though. Too many people preorder and it gives the developers/publishers this feeling that they already got you and your money. Add to the fact that they got anxious because they had to drop the PS4 release for X-mas to make the corporate big wigs happy and it was a recipe for disaster. Basically a half cooked game taken out too soon.
Yeah that is very true. They should have never dropped it on a platform that couldn't handle it. All that time could of been better spent finishing up the PS5/PC versions and you'd have a heck of a lot less pissed off buyers.

Playing Elden Ring on that tiny display and tinny speakers... that is mega-sad. If there ever was a game to immersively play it would be that one...

"They're a 10 but they only like playing single-player games." - EA
Perhaps now EA will see that single-player games can be amazing and profitable.
People took that tweet waaaaaay out of context. Which makes sense, most of the people taking it out of context are the type that constantly take everything out of context.
"I love my girlfriend, but she'll only eat pizza" doesn't mean pizza is bad, just means that most people want to date someone that occasionally eats other things.
It's very different from "I love my girlfriend, but she eats pizza."
The people that care more about feeling right rather than being right seem to miss the word "only."

"Report: Some of Skull and Bones' Own Devs Aren't Confident About the Game"
Is anyone surprised? This project was a disaster from the very start. But of course, Ubisoft is just going to polish up what they currently have to disguise it as a completed game

I can't wait to see what kind of predatory monetization this game has like with Diablo Immortal.
Bodolza wrote on Jul 14, 2022, 11:57:Depends on who you ask. I really enjoyed Origins and Odyssey, but the combat stays more or less the same throughout the game, with enemies levelling alongside you, so while at level 2 it takes 10 swipes to kill a guy, at level 50 it takes 20 swipes to kill a guy. They gave enemies backstab resistance, so you can't just backstab everyone stealthily. However, Origins is such an excellent portrayal of Egypt in a video game. I really liked the second DLC which sends you to the afterlife, great imagery there. Odyssey was great too especially when you get to some of the more tropical islands, but that game eventually overstays its welcome.
I haven't played an AC game since being so bored with Revelations that I never finished it. I just got too easy and repetitive later in the game. I think there have been approximately 400 AC games released since then. Are there any that are worth investing the time in?
From that standpoint, I feel really good about it as an introduction to 'Diablo'.

To think self-regulation in any market can be a success is incredibly naïve.
It's like thinking that a Police station accused of something being investigated by the same police station is ever gonna find anyone guilty of anything.
Might as well let people accused of murder/rape investigate their own crimes.
It's simply not in their interests to find themselves guilty ( for the most part ).
Same as it's not in any market's interests to self-regulate themselves out of profits.
