why not just migrate over to something like DNN or XOPPS or another CMS that has all that functionality built in (and more)?
Because they don't.

And because of a number of other factors Blue and I considered, and then decided to stick with Blammo, before I went ahead and implemented a whole bunch of improvements a decade ago.
And yes, we reviewed that decision last Winter, and it came out to the same result again.

I have used DNN for years, it has a mobile option built in which most skins support. But hey, reinvent the wheel out of old school mentality or stubbornness. Not my time that is being wasted. My site renders mobile clients just fine

Rather then reinvent the wheel (which granted you seem to love to do with this site) why not just migrate over to something like DNN or XOPPS or another CMS that has all that functionality built in (and more)?

NICE! CE is one of the best MP/CoOp games out there at the moment.

I wonder why it took them so long to have mounts?"

Because to implement mounts w/ combat it is fucking expensive.

To put this in context I was acquaintances with Ferret the original project lead of Neverwinter Nights 2. He told me a year before release they did a cost analysis of adding mounts and mounted combat in the game. With the cost of animation, art, programming and Q/A it was just over a million dollars just for that ONE feature. They decided that was too large a percentage of the budget for just one feature, so hence why mounts were not included.

I would make a educated guess during initial dev of CE they did a similar analysis and came to the same conclusion. However the difference is CE has money still coming in from the stream of DLC and much stronger MP concept. So they could wait and put it in down the line.

It's not taking resources away from sp so no harm no foul.

Of course it is. They only have number x employees and.. *snip*

Sadly, as previous attempts at player-created missions have shown, most people will just create garbage, or exploitative missions. :\

Not true at all LOTS of SOLID content in NWN1 & 2 and more recently Conan Exiles who both did the toolkit/server model. His GTA example was a poorly made one, the ones I give are much better of how to do such properly.

Personally I'm hoping for semi-persistant multiplayer, with strong tools to let us create missions and events to share.

So you want a Neverwinter Nights 2 or Conan Exiles toolkit/server apps for CP2077. That would be pretty fantastic.

How about do this to NWN2? Far better game mechanics and GFX. NWN1 looked out of date on release. Still makes my eyes bleed.

And I am over here with Steam that will pre-load CP2077 and VTMB2 without issue. Just like I pre-loaded GTA V, Civ6, MK11 and others. It's calls a platform that is mature and built with forethought vs one rushed out. Marvel vs DCEU all over again.

Was semi interested until the exclusive BS. When it comes to steam I may check it out.

AS a side note, when I was told 2+ yrs ago by a Obsidian dev the former FO devs were working on a 'post apoc' style game this is not what I had in mind honestly. Still not sure the setting clicks for me.

I was a backer. And I was really looking forward to this. But after 30 mins I was actually bored with it. It had none of the magic of the original that I recalled. Some of the textures were low res and the combat was too jarring IMO. I loved Wasteland 2 but for me this game was a miss sadly. I am glad however others find it more enjoyable, just wasn't my thing.

You people are squabbling over literal dollars. If the cost is too high then perhaps asking yourself what poor choices in life did I make where I need to penny pinch this badly in in order.

Money is like jello, they always make more. shrug

Please tell me this graphics style is just for these trailers and not for the game itself...

No, that is just the artistic style of the reveal videos. You can see actual game play at the very end of said videos and in the already released screenshots. https://worldofdarkness.news/Media

Says the guy who can't even get ONE game out the door successfully.

Is Anthem a clusterfuck? Yes and I have been critical of the quality BW has put out since the founders cashed out to EA and retired. However at least BW can get a game out the door. The quality may be suspect but that is still a lot better then Roberts ever has, especially recently.

You can't write someone off for a bad choice or two. People make mistakes, that's why pencils have erasers. The prevailing sentiment is that he was a good player and good guy on the whole and that's a fair assessment. Cheatriots still suck however.

You know what a fucking 'bad choice' is? Cheating on your gf.. that's a bad choice. Hipster fashion in 2019, that's a bad choice. Choosing to make a dirty play on someone that could have killed them or taken away their career, that's just being a ass clown and deserves to be scorned and written off as a trash human being.

I wonder, if I made that same dirty play on a sibling or loved one of yours and almost killed them would you be so pragmatic and forgiving of me just making a 'bad choice'? Yea.. exactly.

That aside, announcement of gronk going to the WWE.. in 5.. 4... 3... 2...

They're claiming all these RPG elements, but that trailer looked like VtM meets Dying Light. Maybe they'll rename it Dying Bloodlines?

That is more rendered cut scenes I'd wager then in-game footage, as the "Not game play" notice implied.

I use Waterfox, have been for years. yes it uses ~420meg RAM on start up but people this isn't 1991. We all have 16+ GIGABYTES of RAM. You people are going off about RAM usage like were on 500MHZ CPUs and a few dozen megs of RAM. If you're noting a system slowdown due to your browser then you simply need a upgrade to your PC and come into the 21st century with the rest of us.
