It takes a lot of work chopping something up into so many fine micro sized DLC's.

dont really care about a story, but it definitely needs way more content

i still think it would be quite easy to make the procedural mission generation type thing WAY WAY more complex and interesting if they actually spent a large amount of time on it - i dont understand why they are satisfied with such small equations.. you can easily bump up the complexity with a bunch of simplistic variables rather than just a handful

all you need is to add some more core game components like mining, exploration, killing... stuff like data acquisition, intel gathering, base building, escorts, guard posts, etc. etc. then you mix it up by having some kind of GM type AI create branching missions on the fly

honestly its pretty basic stuff at a conceptual level, and i suspect not very difficult to code either

They committed to a server seeding content and P2P for instances. Every game design decision you see is simply based on what that technology can reliably provide, which is not much. For example base building would require resources and server time that they do not want to provide.

Until they change that model don't expect much more than glorified USS's.

They had said something about seemless landings a few months back, but from some of the videos it's clear the game is still creating an instance. Are these still randomly generated events with no consequence in the galaxy at large? (Let's shoot 50 randomly spawning bad guys for example.)

Witcher 3... "Source: Authorized Distributor"

That is transparency that makes a politician blush.

Before the keys were purchased in Nigeria with stolen credit cards I'm sure they were from an "authorized distributor".

I've sorta assumed that this leap would be similar to the Oblivion to Skyrim jump. The Creation Engine was a huge upgrade for them, and while you can make 3/NV look better (by blurring and contrasting the piss out of it) it still looks dated.

The only thing I really don't understand yet is the base building part. I'm not sure how that lends to the 'wanderer of the wasteland' feel of Fallout.

With those numbers I'd guess they would be smurf accounts or a new scam brewing. Valve would know where they're coming from and how they're being used however.

It has also used 11 seconds worth of CPU time in the past week.

This is really just unacceptable performance. nVidia should stop trying to shovel this bloated crap down our throats.

It has nothing to do with system resources. They're monetizing the Geforce Experience user base and they want to get more people on board. They know what applications you have installed and when you use them. Plenty of advertising companies are will willing to pay for that.

WTF does political correctness have to do with this? There's vastly more, easily accessable, p0rn in the world than ever before. I guess thats a big lose for political correctness???

Wasn't as bad as the Pirates takeout.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opMIWQN-83o

Exactly, that pissed me off to no end. I'm from Pittsburgh, and that one dirty take out slide derailed our season. And btw, for the guys saying it wasn't dirty then how come they guy was completely off on the slid and didn't even touch the base if he intended to slid to try and be safe? Yea, it was intentional and dirty. NO TWO WAYS ABOUT IT.

you must not watch baseball much, or just take off the fanboy glasses, cuz that was a pretty typical takeout slide, but you seem to have no idea what that is. when a runner knows he has no chance of being safe, they'll mostly disregard the base and try to take out the baseman. the ONLY thing wrong with utley's slide was that it was late. everything else about it was typical takeout slide.

Utley has been suspended for two games.. Thankfully the MLB disagrees with your "typical take out slide" line of reasoning.

Can I just say that I really don't need a game that's far, far bigger than the Witcher 3? Witcher 3 is plenty huge already, both land mass size and content wise.

Please don't go overboard and make it too large. Instead, make the quests more reactive, more involved. Have diverging paths.

3d content is dirt cheap compared to refined game-play and writing..

Not to advocate for such things.. but search for Star Wars 'Despecialized Edition'. The guy took the highest quality pieces from six or seven sources and spliced them into the original film story.
