The only Triple A company left worth a damn is Capcom. But it's a DLC nightmare unless you pirate it. I think the best way to handle Capcom is to buy a base copy and then pirate all the DLC when it comes out.

May not happen. Apex has swooped down and stolen Fortnite's lunch money. How many exclusives can Epic pay for? How does single player game exclusivity even work in the PC market, when your audience can simply pirate you out of spite or common sense of not wanting to use your shitty marketplace? Exclusivity works on consoles, because console plebs have no choice. Should've just stuck to making games.

You weren't even born in 1998. Unreal pioneered open world exploration with understated narrative, something very different from the script-a-palooza introduced by Half-Life and plagiarized by everyone afterwards.

To this date the Skaarj warrior is the advanced enemy mob in a FPS, capable of switching seamlessly between melee and ranged with the dodging and tactics of a bot.

No. Getting "Hulked" makes you the opposite of what you normally are. Bruce Banner is smart and mild mannered but wishes he could be more aggressive so that is what he is when he hulks out. Jen is a beta 6/10 so when she became she hulk she became an outgoing 10/10.

No shit, it's a massively shilled Titanfall 2 asset flip BR game and investors are fucking retarded.

This shit is just flavour of the month just like Tencents garbage, it will dry up and everyone will just fuckoff back to Fortine after EA fails to provide regular content updates to the game, investors will buy in droves like they are now and then sell back once Apex short term gains are gone which will last them 3 months at best.

The only thing the game has going for it is the ping system and that shit is massively undercooked and the base mechanics of the fucking game are absolute trash.

I disagree on that last point. TW3 had moderately better combat than TW2. TW2's "level design" was also awful enough that the "open world meme" was an improvement.

Of all the games they've made, TW3 is the closest to being a good game. It's not there yet, but if they continued the trend then by the time they got to TW6 they'd probably be pretty amazing. Obviously, the series shouldn't continue that far and nothing about Cyberpunk looks like they managed to continue the trend.

It's pathetic seeing you guys desperately trying to get your "do I fit in yet?" badge by acting like you gave a shit about so many things that you clearly never cared about or even played in the first place.

To act like the development of UT4 was going fucking anywhere even years before Fornite was even a thought in someones mind is laughable.

Prove me wrong.

I fucking love that reflection effect they put on a bunch of stuff. So when you walked into a temple the floors would all be this really nice granite. The art direction and level design was superb. They also all had themes, and the themes were interest enough that you could make a full game out of all of them.

Imagine a game exclusively around the grand, imposing hell levels. Or a game set on those animal peoples homeworld (the ones whose hunting ground you fight on)

2004 gamenight when? It doesn't even have DRM, you can just pirate it and connect if I recall correctly.

It was Epic's fault to begin with. It's very clear they didn't give the tiniest shit about UT4 to begin with considering they "crowdsourced" the development. If they would've just spent a year post UE4's launch on it and released it as 1.0 on Steam with a workshop it would've done extremely well. Most people I know never even heard about it because it never officially released and was locked to Epic's launcher. You shouldn't be surprised most people don't want to play a game that has 10% of the content UT2k4 had and mostly reused UT3 assets that they were gradually replacing.

It's also not what people wanted, overwhelmingly the fanbase wants a singleplayer Unreal akin to U1/UG. Had Epic made UT4 the multiplayer mode to a U1/UG remake it would've done amazingly well and wouldn't have cost that much to make. But that'll never happen now.

It's largely due to the advent of 3D accelerators and other MASSIVE leaps in graphical technology that occurred at the time. Now comparatively a lot of the graphical technology we use now has always existed and people are just tweaking it so they can render more things on the screen with sharper textures. With Riddick for instance the entire game takes place mostly indoors and you rarely fight more than 3 or so enemies at one time.

yes it has. Hardware hit a brick wall in the 2000's and since performance peaked it became more about parallelization which doesn't really do much for graphics.

All graphic cards are based on many very weak processors that are only useful because you can use them in parallel. What it doesn't help much is the rest of the game in general, since unlike graphics the data may be who knows where and you need a lot of synchronization and that kills the gains.

The performance gains now are shit, back then you could "just" increase the frequency and your performance jumped through the roof, now that isn't possible since there's only so much power you can dissipate at that size. Not to mention memory still is getting faster much slower than cpus, so if you depend on memory that's even worse.

>Compare a core2duo with a 2010's i7 just as an example.

Hardware is getting faster, but the rate at which it gets faster is slowing down. We'll only be really fucked when we hit the physical limits for good, then we'll have to move to 3d or whatever or we're stuck.

They would have character assassinated him if he had refused. You can also bet your ass that they were responsible for putting the media pressure on Minecraft before the buyout to drive him into agitation, so that he would sign to get his freedom back. This is all a calculated shakedown, like they did millions of times before. They made the math, pressured the guy into panic and then gave him an offer he couldn't refuse. And just like that the world lost another artist who will never create anything worthwhile again.

There are increasing limitations on making smaller transistors, but that's far from a brick wall. Great advancements are being made on limiting duds during manufacture, which makes per unit cost less. The chiplet idea is a form of this, and improving inter-chip communication has much potential. It may be a bad idea to make, say, 50x50mm chips (because a single error ruins too much of the wafer area, so the good ones absorb the cost), but making a bunch of 10x10mm chiplets and connecting them together would work wonderfully, if the communications channels are sufficiently sophisticated. this is where AMD is currently ahead of Intel.

>that person made something so they should get money

>>16126891

They popularized paid digital distribution and all the negatives that come with it. Paid digital distribution has created the environment for disgusting business tactics such as early access aka paying to test a game when devs used to have to pay people to test their game, DLC, micro transactions, intentionally releasing unfinished/buggy games to the point of being unplayable since they can just be easily patched later, doesn't leave a sour taste in your mouth for paying for a game that is unfinished/buggy to the point of being unplayable since it is so easy to update, games as a service which digital distribution is, not being able to sell it, being expected to pay for less than air, making games even more popular from easy access to people who otherwise wouldn't play or play as much thus making them a huge market which makes companies make games focused on them instead of actual gamers, lowered the barrier for entry, etc.

The rest of the industry saw that the "PC master race" fell for Valve's tactics so they started using those tactics too.

Games are more expensive than ever because of Valve.

>>16126925

>push forward Linux optimization

Proton is the exact opposite, it gives developers yet another reason not to developer their games natively for Linux.

Valve is hostile against piracy, some of the tactics that Gabe Newell pushed are inherently anti-piracy such as intentionally releasing games unfinished since they can be patched through some fucking client, (he even said that it was a bad thing that developers used to have to release their games on console complete, whole, and playable without a patch since they were physical only and had no way of patching it, brainwashed drones are dumb enough to think automatic updating is a good thing) and games being digital only discourages optimization and compression since they don't have any financial incentive to compress or optimize to get it to fit on the smallest amount of physical media possible, large file sizes prevent piracy as proven by repacks existing to fix that.

The "piracy is a service problem" is hostile towards piracy and a good game development environment since it implies service such as automatic updating should be part of a game instead of treating it like it should be, something that is released complete, whole, and playable without any service aspect.

I also have never seen him suggest that piracy should be legal so those that never wanted to use Steam or pay for a download license would still be able to legally play games without using Steam or paying for a download license.

If they REALLY cared about video games then they would have never pushed Steam, they would have pushed for the end of stuff like cd-keys (which Steam still uses for licenses), having to keep the disc in the tray, starforce and for games to be released complete and payable without a patch. People would still be able to get their digital download thanks to piracy, but games as a whole would be much better than they are.

yes, you're right, if valve wouldn't exist we would still all buy physical and gamestop would still be a thriving business.

never mind companies always explore new avenues for revenue and gaps get filled by new ones seeking business opportunities all the time, it's not like the snes had a satellite receiver in 95 and the dreamcast dial-up in 99. and with everything moving online run by big companies pc gaming would be THE holdout niche where people would still buy their equipment and software in brick&mortar stores, especially all the people that grew up with pcs since the 70/80/90/s and raised their kids with it making it more common and mainstream. also fuck valve that I can't buy a cheap key from a reseller at launch for half the price and not have keep paying 90 bucks for battletoads or 120 for sf2. valve is also the reason the majority of consumers is fucking retarded, up until 2003 they were all enlightened individuals who could've never been exploited and would've rejected stupid or even anti-consumer practices outright. how can gabe live with himself being responsible for us not living in a paradise?

<Valve is hostile against piracy

they are a business, of-fucking-course they don't like piracy. there is still a big difference between steamworks and ubisoft going full retard in 2009 with asscreed2 and settlers7.

<it gives developers yet another reason not to developer their games natively for Linux.

except linux was and still has a chicken/egg problem. fun fact: most engines could natively export to linux for years - yet hardly any dev did it, least of all big publishers. it's almost like there are economical reasons to not release a native linux version you have to officially support (which costs money btw, in case you didn't notice), but yeah, it's totally proton's fault we don't get more linux games that could increase the install base that makes releasing for more attractive…

<The "piracy is a service problem" is hostile towards piracy and a good game development environment

>what is convenience for 500 alex

I guess netflix and spotify are also hostile towards piracy and good game development. oh wait they operate in a completely different area. could it be that costumers rather pay a sub for direct access and a whole catalog than wait 2 days for delivery/drive to a store to pick up a cd or subject themselves to only watch tv at a specific time with riddled with advertisements? nah. must also be gayben's fault people are lazy and impatient.

<If they REALLY cared about video games

yes, as an individual you can either go full capitalist that burns babies for profit or full anarchist that burns everything down for muh freedoms, nothing inbetween. now imagine being a company trying to make money and having only limited say over how other companies protect their intellectual property if you want their business. it was gabe who invented denuvo all along! what a tweest. literally hitler backporting it into all valve games.

Digital distribution also have positives. Its very low entrance level not cockblocked by monopoly giants. There are histories of small independent indie companies successfully self publish digitally and achieving great success. LoL, WoT. Note: it is only possible with working anti-piracy measures (server based engines work the best, pirates BTFO)

Stop. According to Marx theory discounts are exploitation crime against humanity.
