Again: I'm not touching Microshit's garbage store with a 10 lightyear pole. Not after what they pulled off with GFWL.

The same thing was said when mmo's were released, the same thing was said when Steam was released, same thing was said when online drm was added to diablo 3. There's always a bunch of new kids and assholes who don't give a fuck. The free market is a myth, most people don't qualify to participate in one.

By throwing everything together you create no argument, but a steaming pile of ...

The connectivity to other players is essential for an MMO. There is no MMO without connectivity, the connectivity creates the MMO.

Steam offers much added value to soften it's weak DRM. Still, i dont buy full price, only low sale prices.

Origin and uPlay do NOT offer more or better value than Steam, so both clients are getting well deserved flak. They are useless.

Mandatory accounts for Geforce experience do offer what to players? Gifts and raffles? Colored glass shards and booze? Blankets with smallpox?

You've just proved my point your arguments are not logical at all, see: Private wow servers. Steam paved the way for always online in starcraft 2 and diablo 3. Also the acceptance of loss of dedicated server software because the average gamer is so fucking retarded and can't reason rationally. Steam taught companies to use PR and cover DRM and removal of gamers rights while spinning it as "adding value". Your post shows the success of corporate propaganda.

Human beings decide things by emotion, not what is true, I can tell you the facts and you won't reason to the right conclusion:

What's next? We need to authenticate with them before we can play our games so they can lock us out at their whim even though we bought their card?

You and most people already showed them you'll take it up the ass, MMO's then steam, then origin, then uplay. Did gamers stop buying these games? Nope. Did they rationalise the trampling of their rights? Yep.

I'm curious. Been playing with the ue4 editor for awhile now...and the space flight sim game is *there*. Why has no one done anything? If you think of Freespace, it's rather simple, linear missions. Having the systems in place just strikes me as odd that no one has done anything.

Because most people don't have any experience making one, aka there have been tonnes of bad attempts. See two recent ones: Sol exodus and Strike suit zero.

I played them both and Strike suit zero's flight model and enemy AI was balls, the way ships moved were not fun to engage, I think people are put off having to develop AI that works in 3D and is fun to play against. Sol Exodus was a game that theoretically could have been good but the feel of the game is thrown off by their lack of experience. They had a lot of good ideas but they didn't really analyze freespace, many devs of these games never played freespace and/or are clueless of the importance of games like freespace in terms of analysis of properties of ships, weapons fire, graphics/sound effects, etc, how all these things come together to produce a fun experience.

I'd also advise you to go load up UT2004 and play the space mission, you can see even EPIC sucked at making a space ship play fun. It's fucking awful. It's under game type - assault, map is called mothership. See how bad even a AAA developer makes space feel. I hate the ship portion with a vengeance because I've been spoiled by games like descent and freespace. You can see developers really don't look around at people who are experts at making space flight feel good and play good and asking for advice.


Strike suit zero

Sol exodus

I still think Civ's gameplay mechanics are dated and need an overhaul, but I will do a 180 on the art style criticisms I made... visually, the game looks pretty spectacular.

Which 4X game would you prefer to play rather than one of the civ franchise?

All these people buying a full-price expansion to - as I understand it - a broken, and bug-ridden alpha game... makes me sick. It sets yet another dangerous precedent and says to the company and others like it:

I'm sorry to tell you that precedent was set long time ago, MMO's were the original game to tell you most gamers were morons, why would you pay for an RPG where you don't control the server software? MMO's are the biggest con in gaming history, monthly subscription for a piece of software you never own that can be destroyed and taken away at any time.

The reality is the rise of the internet allowed the corporations to see how dumb humanity really was, that most gamers are stupid, feeble minded and illiterate.

From the wiki...
Every mission, except for story-specific events, will feature procedurally generated level design and content, including randomized enemy positions, terrain, buildings, and weather conditions.

It most likely uses pseudo-procedural generation techniques where they just re-arrange prefabbed hand crafted chunks of levels.

Shame that people can quite literally steal another person's work and claim it as their own, and yet this stuff continues to walk the tightrope of frivolity. The law only works for those with lots of money. Us little people have no hope of justice, even when morality and ethics scream for it.

The problem is applying properties to ideas and things that shouldn't be property is the problem. Human territoriality is not rational when applied to things like ideas. Thank god IP didn't exist in the past so whoever invented the alphabet can sit and tax society forever from his or her "IP". The reality is property more often than not makes everything fucking inefficient.

Take Half Life from the 1998 magazine archive mentioned earlier. 48.99 in chips-n-bits. Adjusted for makes it over $70 today.

Can't believe the regular punters claiming they would just steal pirate it have not posted in this thread yet.

Games are getting cheaper, clueless old senile whiners are getting whinier.

I'm sorry to tell you but this is bad reasoning, the market for video games has expanded since the 1980's. So you can't compare costs directly without taking into account market size. AKA it could very well be that games WERE cheaper in the 80's vs the size of the market then, it's an illusion.

Also there's tonnes of new negative things today, games are released unfinished because with the expansion of the market the lower half of the bell curve in intelligence came online. AKA the people who pre-order games and are fucking irrational. The people who feed f2p games and online drm.

Today on Blue's: People bitch about a game being too niche and ask for it to be dumbed down and mainstreamed to appeal to them.

Way to flip the script.

LOL eve is a bad game period, it caters to retards. They don't call it the spreadsheet game for nothing. Freespace 2 is infinitely more fun then eve will ever be, eve is the ultimate badly designed casual game because everything is automated. MMO's are casual games, games like freespace are hardcore.

Claiming you are hardcore at 99% of mmo's is like claiming you are a hardcore bejewelled player.

Oh, but it is. Whether it is some or all of the architecture, the fact that they can now get it down to 10nm impressive now matter how you slice it.

Except die shrinks for the last few nodes haven't been anywhere near as great as before. You're not getting the fact that fewer parts of the processor are shrinking, aka the % of things that are being shrunk is much smaller so the "10nm" is a bit of false advertising. Before the entire cpu would shrink but that hasn't happened for a long time. It's part of the reason why cpu performance has stalled because of all the problems regarding shrinking parts and their performance characteristics not being good enough at smaller geometries.

It boggles my mind they will be down to 10nm lithography by next year. WOW!

Except it really isn't, when you read the fine print only certain features can reach 10nm size. Basically when there is a die shrink only some parts on the cpu actually shrink.

I feel like the overall attitude of gamers is to talk about how terrible everything is, then rush to the next big shiny thing, overhype it in their mind, then complain when it doesn't live up to the hype, then talk about how everything sucks again.

And, when it's a bunch of teenagers on reddit, I get it. When it's a bunch of 30 and 40 year olds here, I get it less. And I am by no means saying most people here do that, but a small group of very loud ones. Most here are talking about liking the game and having productive discussion. A small few are talking about being burned and how all AAA games suddenly are terrible.

At some point, I feel like you can take responsibility for your own fun in the hobby.

Gamers are not a monolithic group, I held out on not buying any steamworks games for 8 years but the reality is kids and people born yesterday don't know about the criminal nature of the videogame industry. AKAt he rise of mmo's and "software as a service" (software as a scam).

The reality is the free market can only work when you are two blocks away from the bastards selling you things, at a distance most people will cave. It's the distance that disempowers us to effect change of the corproations, if we all lived two blocks away from game companies they would have to deal with angry people that could phsyically find them and be present whenever they tried to pull stupid shit.

Transportation and modern technology fundamentally break human relations in the ability to keep the other party honest, the human mind was simply not meant to work in a large scale society with billions of people. It's just that evolution did not build our minds for this environment.

There is no "Freedom" people don't "make decisions" they rationalise their behaviour, our behaviour is actually driven by unconscious biological processes we are only now beginning to understand.

Uh 4th Amendment anyone? I never understand how these agencies can just do stuff like this and not get smacked down immediately for it.

They just cry terrorism and impressionable people will happy give up their freedom and principles. I take it you've seen the sort of person - particularly in this US election - who wants to deny people their freedom of religion (or even deny people of other religions their lives) all in the name of freedom and "live and let live [by my rules]". The "You're not allowed to believe that because forcing your values on me is a serious problem" crowd. Awful hypocrites.

Except religion is false, our world works on the laws of nature not bronze age superstitions. Perhaps you should look at the history of religious violence before you open your ignorant mouth.

People used to believe demons caused all sorts of things and then we figured out the germ theory of disease. Science and the laws of nature have a great track record of making the world a better place, religion doesn't.

I don't want to go back to a world where people believe in this:

We have rich fuckers like the koch brothers pushing anti science views, sorry to tell you but science is how our universe works, when the sun starts running out of fuel are we going to all pray to the lord and hope he saves us or are we going to use physics to advance our technology to enable our long term survival in the universe?

Sorry to tell you but reality has rules that lead to certain values that are inherently superior because their ultimate foundation is our long term intelligent survival in this universe.

The Gawker situation was deplorable. I visit a lot of progressive blogs, and it was shocking how many people considered it to be only a nasty gossip blog. True, it did have stories like that, and the readership was really upset at the Hogan and Thiel stories when they were published. However, Hogan getting 140 million was probably one of the worst judgements I've heard of. True, his career was harmed because the spotlight was shone on him, but that wasn't because of the sex tape. He fell out of favor due to his racist rants that became public. That's when he was dropped and no one would touch him with a 10 foot pole. The fact a millionaire or even a group of millionaires can come together to put a news organization out of business with frivolous lawsuits should be frightening to everyone.

That's the nature of capitalist society, once you acccept an ideology where a tiny minority of people can have all the money in society and believe they "earned" it legitimately it's game over.

The reality is if you are for massive economic inequality what you see is inevitable.

So then the question is "why". Why would Bethesda do that to a game, do more work to have poorer, "dumbed down" modding support. Nevermind how the Doom franchise is arguably legendary for modding support in some ways, people are still making things for the originals today. Begging a further question of, so of all the franchises why this one.

Man you are one deluded soul, note that the tools they used to make the game doom they already have and are infinitely better then snap map will ever be yet they didn't release them. They purposely made a gimped level editor for a PC audience... thats bs. Mods for consoles? WTF they want to create a "platform" for micro-transaction money and people to sell mods... that's horrible because 99% of mods aren't worth anything. They see how stupid the average gamer is - remember bethesda was behind horse armor lets not forget...

So bethesda are not the good guys, they hate free mods and are mad they aren't getting a "cut" of money they believe should be theirs off other peoples work.

Did you see what cut modders got? It was like something below 30%, while steam and bethesda took the lions share for doing nothing. That's why everyone was angry about bethesda's paid mods... they are just another shitty game company.

What? Overwatch sold incredibly well. Diablo 3 sold well, even after the garbage with Vanilla. Their games are doing well.

Which doesn't mean much because a good chunk of blizzards audience is under 22 or wouldn't know of games like doom, quake, or duke nukem 3d. AKA they didn't game on PC's in the 90's they think pc gaming = steam. If you don't remember the pre-steam era you really can't comment on modern gaming at all without massive distortions.

Many people bought diablo 3 based on the track record with diablo 2, it also helped that diablo 3 had always online drm in it. So of course its going to sell - its a sequel to one of the biggest propreties in gaming that took over a decade to release a sequel... so everyone should have expected diablo 3 to sell.

There's an entire new generation of gamers who have no memory of the past so blizzard is just selling to that crowd of easy money there are plenty of countries that couldn't afford videogames until just recently so the market has grown in size since ye old days, so new generations of gamers + expanding market can give you 'success' simply because theres a bunch of fresh new minds without hardly any gaming experience, so new games which are mediocre young kids will think are amazing.

That's normal and they can have fun and have their opinions but they really can't judge a game properties quality if they didn't grow up with it because they lack the perspective.

I just want to point out that Bethesda, if they so desired, could have allowed modding/level creation etc while having Denuvo/DRM. The DRM isn't preventing that so much as Bethesda may be using it to help prevent it, if you see what I mean. Not that I am in any way defending or encouraging DRM.

Sorry to tell you but denuvo requires server authentication. The reason level editor isn't released is because companies want to sell you dlc/season passes/microtransaction nonsense and have you over a barrel. Denuvo prevents people from modding the game unofficially because the game is encrypted. There are all sorts of unoffical mods for games that don't have official modding ability denuvo certainly prevents that I'm sorry to tell ya.

Note that there were unofficial editors for many older pc games that were made by the community, denuvo certainly prevents that. Diablo had a bunch of unoffical mods when it came with no level editor lets remember.
