    So stop playing that one sided card
    I was asked to show something substantial wich I did. Whining that it is being brought up again does not change the fact that the so called camp of the good guys have a few ripe for the loony bin too.

    @Widge
    I love how any vaguely negative piece on gamergate attracts a whole host of WHERE IS YOUR RESEARCH AND FACTS comments, accompanied by a host of pure positives only GG propaganda videos.
    Facts? Sure, how about this tidbit where a developer threatens a youtuber because said youtuber posted an article wich critizised both sides?



    There you go...
    So stop playing that one sided card since both sides have their gigantic share of serious headcases.

    backlash against supposed corruption after a man falsely accused his developer ex-girlfriend of sleeping with a journalist for positive coverage (it's worth noting that the journalist in question never covered her work once they began a relationship).
    Erm no. The false accusation was that the positive coverage was a review wich wasn't. But there has been a positive article about the game in question.

    Call me cynic, but I think the gaming press has a foul role in all this with constant misinterpreting what was the cause that sparked all this. And all this #gamergate bullshit has not changed the feeling that journalistic integrity is incredibly rare in the ga\ming scene.

    Oh and just for the record (sad that I have to clarify this), people that think it is ok to threaten/repress/underpay/degrade/harass/etc women because they are women are sad pieces of crotch fungus.

    This interview with Brad Wardell shows another light on all this, worthy of a read.

    No one should be getting death threats. But to blame them on a particular ideology is irresponsible.

  • You can push The Evil Within beyond 30fps on PC

  • ronorra 09/10/2014

    Also with the 30/60 thing - aren't artists entitled to define how their art is scene. Lots of films (very nearly all) display at 24fps rather than 48 because they feel it's more 'cinematic' - maybe The Evil Within has been designed in this way too.
    /facepalm

    You cannot be serious to view slowdown as an artistic choice.

    Finally caved in and bought the game yesterday and loving it. Runs extremely well...60+ fps @ 3840x2160, compliments to Monolith for a game I will sink many many hours in if my first session (6 hours with just messing around) is any indication.

    edit: wow, I am getting negged for saying it runs well on my pc? Some console wankers really need to grow a pair. If you want to neg me, allow me at least to give you something worthwhile... enjoy:

    Funny that negative comment on BF4 or EA is negged. Maes one wonder about shill infestation. Especially when hearing bollocks about having no problems since day one, simply because it cannot be taken seriously. Or did people forget EA publicly appologized for the state BF4 was in and EA does not look like a company to me that appologizes over broken software for shits and giggles, so yea. Reply 0

    @dogmanstaruk You might want to reread what I posted, especially the part about incredibly repetitive design. Reply 0
  • ronorra 22/09/2014

    @JRPC
    In fact, I'd say the negative response to this game is actually an indictment of the state of the gaming community and it's lack of any real maturity rather than any issue with the game itself.
    Oh seriously fuck off. Just quoting the Giantbomb review:

    When you throw it all together, you're left with a game where the missions are designed to be repeatable, but all the missions are so repetitive that it's hard to get excited to see the same handful of environments again and again and again as you attempt to grind out faction reputation or hunt around for high-end weapons. It's a beautiful game, but a hollow experience.

    The story missions also suffer due to incredibly repetitive design. With one or two exceptions, every mission has you running to an area (often backtracking through areas you played through in a previous mission), finding an old or alien computer of some kind, and dispatching your friendly robotic ghost buddy to scan or analyze the thing so you can move on.

    There are cool little flashes of brilliance in Destiny, but a lot of it feels like a game designed by people who weren't sure what sort of game they were designing. Is it a loot shooter? Sort of, but the loot isn't very good. Is it an MMO? No, but you'll occasionally encounter other players out in the field. A story-driven shooter like the Halo franchise? Sure, if you don't mind digging through the developer's website to find those little bits of lore. Clans? Again, they exist on the website but don't surface in-game in a meaningful way. The pieces are there, but too many of them feel malformed or half-realized to make Destiny recommendable.
    Your words dismissing valid critique is an indictment that you are an idiot.

    Destiny Review Scores May Cost Bungie A $2.5 Million Bonus

    Destiny is not getting great review scores. In fact, it's getting resoundingly mediocre review scores—as of right now, Bungie's ambitious shooter has a 76.29% on GameRankings and a 77 on Metacritic.

    That's certainly not the type of critical reception Activision was hoping for when they pumped half a billion (!) dollars into this franchise, and the mediocre reception may wind up costing Bungie a great deal of money, if their 2010 contract is still active. Turns out those review scores—those arbitrary attempts to quantify a game's subjective quality—might be worth $2.5 million.

    Let's take a trip back to 2012, when Activision was embroiled in a nasty legal battle with Call of Duty creators Vince Zampella and Jason West. As part of that court case, Activision had to share details of its original contract with Bungie for Destiny, which was then scheduled for release in 2013. Buried in the public documents is this little nugget:

    Activision shall pay to Licensor a quality bonus (the "Quality Bonus") in the amount of Two Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($2,500,000) should Destiny Game #1 achieve a rating of at least 90 as determined by gamerankings.com (or equivalent reputable services if gamerankings.com is no longer in sen/ice) as of thirty (30) days following the commercial release of Destiny Game #1 on Xbox 360.

    Right now, Destiny is nowhere close to a 90 on GameRankings. It's unlikely if not impossible for the game to make that score by next month.

    Now, it's worth noting, the numbers here are old. This contract is from 2010, and I've heard that it's been reworked since then, though I'm not sure if they removed or altered this specific bonus condition. It's certainly possibly that Bungie fought to take it out. Activision is staying mum on the specifics—when I reached out yesterday for clarification, the publisher declined to comment.
    As always with news from Kotaku, take with a grain of salt, but somehow this does not seem to be farfetched. It would not surprise me at least.

    @ronorra
    What the hell do you know about running a multi-national corporation?

    Do you know anything about business strategy?

    Having a comments section on an article like this is pointless. It's going to be the usual fanboy bullshit, with literally zero informed opinion or decent analysis.
    Me a fanboy. Tell me then of what then? I can already call you out for selective memory and not remembering the Xbone constant u-turning and still not being close to PS4 due to mindnumbling decisions like Kinect or the anti consumer draconic DRM, the fact that Microsofts Games for Windows Live is regarded as the worst of the worst...if even EA can come up with something that works and you cannot, shame on you. Or how about the failure that was Zune, ruining their own franchises like Age of Empires, Crimson Skies, Rise of Nations... the fuckup that is winbdows 8 etc etc.

    I can go on and make the list even larger but this look like a company that has a vision? Many companies fuck up royally (Sega etc) but none do it like Microsoft.

    Now, once again, explain to me of what I am a so called fanboy. But you cannot since I have no allegiance of any of the three. Sony is being good guy now so far but it is only a matter of time when they go back to their old ways. Nintendo gave me many good memories but lost me when they continued on the same path for years and years and not catching up with the present times. And you damn well know my stance with Microsoft. So tell me, of what am I a fanboy or was that what you typed as usefull as a regurgitating lama? I go for the latter.

    Not only a depressing buyout, but once again a sign that Microsoft haven't gotten an effing clue, let alone a long term vision.

    @MrTomFTW You won't hear me say that there is no validity to the cause of more females in the gaming industry or to have more female characters. What you will hear from me that the fierceness of so many SJW is blocking their ability to use logic.

    Example: Cannabalt developer threathning Totalbiscuit with filing a DCMA if he would review any game of that developer:

    And why? Because Totalbiscuit had the nerve to write this.

    A developer willing to abuse laws to censor a person that does not agree with his views...

    It all went down the drain after Eurogamer Writer Loses Job For Pointing Out How Much Video Game Journalism Fails. Wich has been the last proper article instead of the umpteenth Heartstone article, or why Titanfall is so damn next gen and that you are a plonker for not buying it. With that freefall of quality you can't be too surprised that Eurogamer employs trolls.

    They sound a little cocky if i'm honest.
    TBH I would use the word douchy, after reading an interview with him where he was asked about his current rig he dropped this one:

    The only disadvantages to using a Mac are the price and the fact that you can't really upgrade them (except for memory). To me this isn't a big deal because I'm rich as fuck—so I'm more likely to just buy the latest model instead of trying to get 10fps extra in BF4 by upgrading the graphics card.
    So yea suffice to say not even my pocketlint will go towards Mr Newman.
