Ya. The CCP design ethos is a weird one. Everything takes too long. Which you can’t do anymore. It’s too expensive.
It is a good game. It just has a poor new player experience. After that, pretty fun.
Eve itself also has the problem of being an aging, extremely hardcore MMO that isn’t as much fun as the stories would have you believe
Stop making such sweeping generalisations. Game has 5-600,000 subs. Games that aren’t fun don’t get that. It doesn’t work that way.
There was a time that everyone laughed about a phone/computer in every pocket.
Because people didn’t think it was feasible. I remember the stories about Blackberry around the time of the iPhone. They didn’t think it was feasible what they were doing. Not because it was a good or dumb idea.
Having a device in your pocket is completely different than wearing something on your face.
Yeah… OR you can sit in a shared virtual space, with all your friends from all over the world, on the same virtual couch, watch a movie on a giant ass virtual TV and talk with each other through a mic that is then directionally placed in a virtual landscape.
That is the dumbest sounding thing in the world. Wear an OR so you can see your friends….. and look at a virtual TV? Yeah. Dumb. Real dumb.
I remember on the Giant Bombcast an emailer said “don’t hold your breath” in regards to this game. Very interesting.
Yeah, kill off the thing with 500,000 players and the only source of cash the company has.
What the hell did I just read?
Oh, God, yes. That game was uglied up to a pretty insane degree with all the aliasing.
Well, yeah. That’s how it’s always worked.
Uh, Witcher 2 is a 3 year old game. Not 5. But, apparently, I don’t know what I’m talking about.
apparently haven’t really seen the PC version of 2 in comparison to the 360 version.
Yeah. Better graphics. Cool. Their core technology had to work on a 360. Sky isn’t the limit on hardware that old.
The PC version on its lowest settings you’re able to play it on looks better than pretty much any 360 game ever.
Never suggested otherwise.
It has been a thing, but shipping on multiple discs is something devs always, always want to avoid.
so why tailor your solution for a minority?
Because you still have to. I don’t know how small the market is. But, even CDPR announced around the time the Witcher 2 came out, said 900+ thousand copies were sold and 200,000 were digital. Physical is still surprisingly huge.
We don’t know how that has changed over the years, how far it was skewed to digital, but don’t dismiss it so easily.
If they aren’t ready to show something, why would they do that?
On PC you have limitations. Have fun using a “skies the limit” mentality when you gotta have it ship on a DVD. Yes, shipping on a DVD is still a thing on PC.
They couldn’t really use a “skies the limit” with the Witcher 2 since, as far as we know, they were always going to have a 360 version down the line.
Your argument doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. It just sounds like the usual whiny PC gamer stuff.
This assumes they are only working on League of Legends and will only work on League of Legends. Companies always have several things in the works that can become products. That’s how it works.
Well, yeah. Every company does that.
If you think game developers are in it for the money, you’re detached from reality.
You don’t get into it to make money. Because you don’t make it. Unless you’re a really, really, really valuable programmer.
One router used it’s wi-fi antenna to kill my neighbours.
I wouldn’t hold your breath.
