News Comments > MS Gaming on Windows 10 Poll

Why can't this software giant make compatibility modes that let you play older small window resolutions at modern wide screen resolutions with out having to fiddle with registry settings and individual game ini files?

Why is the game dvr feature so half baked? Either do a full featured screen recorder or kill this lame no options joke.

The auto industry has a very bad memory.

Remember talking cars that scolded you if you left the door open?

That went over so well last time.

Now they want to add a machine harpy back seat driver to badger you relentlessly, yea, that is going to go over real well.

Not a fan of Unity, Epic, or SpacialOS.

Let's just hope this escalates with more fisticuffs.

How can you tell if a corporate CEO is lying?

The original SE 2 was a pretty bad console port. Crappy Checkpoint system with long stretches between checkpoints. Also pretty mushy feeling controls.

Still, some of the levels in 2 were very well done.

I don't remember any partial nudity in 2.

News Comments > Beyond Good and Evil 2 Solo Play Requires Internet

So the suits at Ubi have been watching the fiascos of the last few years like Fallout 76, and before that SW Battlegrounds, and must have thought, we can side step all of that consumer push back, if we just put the best PR droids on the case long before roll out.

The only reason to make any game require internet is micro-transactions. Meanwhile, "multiplayer" is PR speak for pay to win.

Welcome to yet another "game" that is essentially a themed lobby for either pay to win and/or gambling.

Not even remotely interested now.

I liked the shot that included the 'real' musicians in the back ground with the look on their face that says "I trained for years to master a classical instrument and this flake has the spot light with cartoon sound effects."

News Comments > Discord Store Undercuts Epic With 10% Split
36. Re: Discord Store Undercuts Epic With 10% Split Dec 15, 2018, 07:03 Jonjonz
 
Lets put this "developers" meme to rest.

With the exception of a very few single person created games, most games are brought to market by corporations, most of which are either multinational corporations or smaller companies that are owned and financed by parent corporations.

This is all about maximizing the bottom line of big corporations and nothing to do about helping "developers."

From my perspective Steam provides the following added value to the customer:

* A reliable source for gamer's to find and purchase the widest selection of games. Unlike a retail store, where you will find only the latest releases, Steam carries the most games ever published in the last 20 years.
* A reliable source of critical reviews to help you avoid buying a woofer.
* A reliable source of game fixes and work arounds via the workshop guides, and game hub forums.
* A reliable source for mirroring game save files.
* A reliable source for archiving your games, so you don't have to worry about keeping a wall of bookshelves full of game boxes and CDs.
* Frequent game sales at deep discounts.

These new ventures have yet to prove how reliable they are and given such low revenue intake, makes you wonder just how long they will be around before some corporate accountant declares them no help to their bottom line.

"Passion project" Hoo-Ha, that's the best guffaw I have had this week.

Must have taken him an hour or to to slap together some generic looking DOOM wads, and then weeks of scheming and schmoozing a 2nd rate guitarist and a 2nd rate artist to combine their work with his doofy wad and then sell it for $200 to the whales out there.

Can anyone here fill me in on exactly what changes Square Enix made to the game to fix it. This article was all about touchy feely PR and not a single word about what they actually did to the game, other than extend the free to play period.

I get a message this video is not available, and then a link to this...

Generic fan boy voice over

A Pox on Youtubers who think their generic fan boy voice over is more important than the actual sound and dialog of a new game trailer. There must be more lonely losers out there who suck this stuff up than I ever imagined.

As corporations seek to cut out the middle man, they tend to run whatever they replace them with a bare bones operation.

So expect low security, incompetent and minimal customer support, consumer unfriendly return policies, and thanks to lower volume sales, higher prices to cover the cost of running an inhouse online retail operation.

Is it just me or does this video look dated, like an early 2000's game with slightly more detailed textures.
