News Comments > Street Fighter V PC Beta This Fall

I won't feed capcom or steam by buying this. SF4 was underwhelming and street fighter badly needs a new direction. They've been rehashing the same game forever.

I'm trying to figure out how that might be the case with a crowd funded game like this that had continuous input from the fans.

The vast majority of devs and gamers suck at figuring out what makes a good game. The human mind is incredibly bad at reality.

I think it was civilization 4's designer that said that there are VIP gamers that understand game design in ways most gamers don't they are able to grok game systems and why something does or doesn't work.

Sounds like HDs are finally on the way out. I can't think of anything they can do to compete.

SSD's are still pretty darn expensive, you get 1TB for $500, you can get 4GB for between 120-150. That's still miles less expensive for 4x the data.

News Comments > Chris Avellone Leaves Obsidian
25. Re: Chris Avellone Leaves Obsidian Jun 9, 2015, 16:22 Suppa7
Infinity engine games were never that good to begin with and became popular largely because we had nothing else to play. The style of RPG like ultima underworld, eye of the beholder 2 and lands of lore stopped being produced.

I was never a big fan of ie games, they always had crap combat systems and everything was super casual. They are probably the biggest games that actually do suffer from nostalgia goggles. The D&D ruleset for ie games made the loot/combat leveling not very interesting at all.

While planescape torment bucked the trend, torment was saved by its writing/world and story.

Right, if Steam were to go under the games would be unlocked. How do I know this? Simple, if it were to go under and we'd be screwed, good luck to the industry ever trying to sell digital games in the next 25 years. The industry in a whole would have to make sure it was a soft landing.

Haha you're talking about gamers, one of the dumbest demographics on the planet. People said the same thing about DRM you know that right? DRM won. We had LAN taken away in starcraft 2 and diablo 3 is always online. Two flagship properties totally locked down. Not a good idea to think your fellow gamers are intelligent.

After Valve offered such a gamer friendly business model I don't know why people are happy to defend this nonsense.

I'm sorry to tell you but saying valve is good for you is idiotic. The guy, gabe newell and company who trojan horsed their way to billion dollar stream store via popular games like counterstrike and halflife and now most AAA game have gangrene server back ends tied into steam works so you don't really 'own' your multiplayer game so much as rent it from corporations and are totally reliant on them keeping their servers up.

Anyone who accepted MMO/F2P/steam lead to this shit, you are way too far down the river now to complain about anything. You guys gave game corporations everything they ever wanted because you are stupid as fuck. I watched dedicated servers, level editors and mod tools become locked down/gimped or totally disappear because of the mmo/drm/steam generation.

How the fuck could you pay to unlock shit in a game you don't own? Like how fucking stupid can you be. F2P is scamware and games like Dota 2 are total outliers, they are still rotten at their core. This is all in the push to change gaming culture away from ownership to perpetual serfdom.

As for dedicated servers, I think you don't give gamers enough credit.


Dude gamers are the reason steam exists, I held out for years away from steam but new kids (born yesterday) don't have any memory of gaming history and are easily taken advantage of / manipulated, not to mention many of them are dumb. Just go to reddit and see all the gabe newell bootlicking. It's pretty disgusting, esp from a man who's at the forefront of taking away our rights to own our own shit.

, I can think of no other 'group' or industry that accepts the process of half broken products being put on the market =-Rigs-=

Uhh there's tonnes of snake oil/cheap crap that breaks that makes mega bucks. What about vanity items like fashion - expensive purses which are actually regular purses made in some foreign super low wage country but just using scientific techniques to prime people to believe nonsense, etc, Banks charging for you owning an account and knowing that switching is a royal pain in the ass for most people. You are blind to how fucked up the world really is son. Commercial capitalism is one giant clusterfuck. The reality is the market is a myth and doesn't really exist because human beings simply do not behave nor make decisions according to rational principles.

Then there's the huge bailouts of the banks and stock market in 2008. The idea that there exists some market "that punishes crap and rewards merit" is mostly a fantasy.

If that were true MMO's (DRM online RPG's) and F2P never would have taken off, people are much too dumb to make valid decisions and their long term consequences.

"WE" don't, gamers are not a homogenous group. They are just people, and most people on are planet are fucking stupid. As for industries "collapsing". Sorry to say but it's not just the gaming masses who take it up the ass.

The vast majority of people buying games 1) are stupid 2) don't understand technology. If you asked the average gamer about dedicated servers you'd get a blank face.

GoG is a heavily curated store, they "refuse" to publish many games.

Valve does the same thing, we've seen what happened with greenlight - a truckload of crap/shovelware and unfinished games. As if retail gaming wasn't bad enough.

My thoughts exactly, although I'm sure Ironclad was less than ecstatic about their Sins of a Solar Empire sales.

That's because sins was overall an unfinished game. It tried to merge RTS with 4x. The combat was just fucking tedious and the super jacked pirate faction intervening in the game was just a big wtf.

I feel like the only gamer in the world with this opinion right now but fuck it: I think the GTAV singleplayer campaign was just crap.

I've never really been a GTA fan, since the beginning. Just felt like one of those "meh" genre smash ups. When red faction guerilla and Saints row copied the "open world" crap started with gta. These big "open worlds" just feel like giant maps with collections of mini games.

Maintaining a certain level of play and people expecting you to always be that good really wore me down. It got to the point (pretty rapidly, I might add) that I wasn't enjoying those games anymore and that to me seemed pretty stupid.

Yup I got to the same point back in the quakeclan/ladder days, you get to the top and then you get people either 1) cheating. or 2) playing a lot just to trade almost draws every other game.

But it works both ways. Sometimes you get total dicks in charge who think they're God's gift to game design and refuse to change anything even as the team throws up red flags.

Indeed the mass effect 3 ending and ME3 overall demonstrates the point well.

Valve is trying to blur the lines between what we currently know as standard roles like the community (players or content creators), developers, publishers, etc. They want to create an ecosystem where middlemen are dissolved or have low impact and anyone that adds perceived value can be immediately compensated for it and perhaps make a living out of it without jumping through hoops created by a massively broken publisher driven system that, in the end, all revolves around investment money and guys that don't give two $h!75 about games.

I'm sorry but this is just nonsense. We had for profit driven companies on the stock market that released better product 10+ years ago during the 90's. Interplay released all sorts of cool and interesting games without any online DRM crapware. Gabe helped massively to normalize always online DRM. He and the entire game industry is corrupt.

Developers are partly to blame for being unable or unwilling to work together to roll their own publishing business. The reality is game many developers don't want the risk of being independent which is why they sell out.

Remember microsoft's management was jealous of gabe's "Software as a service" that he saw the videogame industry getting away with on app stores and in the mmo space.

Other companies inspired by software/digital drm

you like to boycot them tho they trow a lollipop at you and you get weak...says alot

That's the history of gaming, just look how far DRM has come from MMOs (drm'd rpg's) to steam, to diablo 3, path of exile and starcraft 2 requiring always online drm. F2P/MMO are just marketing speak for DRM'd games.

These Forbes blog things lend a bit of authority/professionalism where they shouldn't. Just some blogger dude. Not a real "Forbes" article.

Forbes is trying to appeal to a certain demographic, aka having it both ways. The real forbes is highly for the removal of public rights to own anything.

What a giant non sequitur, this. With that logic you're basically saying FPS games have better combat than (C)RPG games, while you obviously shouldn't compare the two this way. You better stop talking now before you make an even bigger fool of yourself.

It isn't a non sequitor, the RPG crowd was always infested with the shittest kind of gamer, the kind of gamer that enabled early MMO - DRM'd games. So yes the RPG players tend to be the bottom feeders amongst gamers everywhere. They are the kind of gamer that's HUGE on story little on the gaming aspect. AKA combat systems in RPG's started to go south when stories became prominent.
