David Cage and Quantic Dream "shocked" by allegations of unhealthy studio culture

@masteratt while you make some good points, I doubt that Ellen Page or Willem Dafoe, or indeed any other voice or mocap actor ever visited QD's offices, or collaborated directly with the developers. They would have worked in a recording/mocap studio (even a QD owned studio), probably not even in the same city, working to a pre-approved script.

@artibeus "Innocent until proven guilty" is a legal concept intended to ensure the integrity of judicial proceedings. It doesn't mean that outside of a courtroom we should disregard our faculties of reasoning to pretend that we can't make a judgement on available information. It just means that courts are held to a higher standard.

@BarackObama Leaving the EU is certainly a reasonable first step towards cementing England as a "giant money-laundering casino-cum-tax haven centred on one settlement" - unless you imagine that tax-shy billionaires Lord Rothermere, Rupert Murdoch and the Barclay Brothers pushed Brexit in order to create a democratic socialist paradise free from Brussels-style neoliberalism...

Don't hold your breath for PS4 backwards compatibility

EggyDeth

3 years ago

Yes, PS3 was an architectural nightmare: an underpowered CPU backed up by six PS2-class processors. Because at that point, we'd all solved multithreaded programming so it was going to be GREAT! It sounded horrible when I first heard of it, it was horrible when I tried developing on it, and remained horrible for the life of the console. And the tools - just awful! You couldn't even expect the debugger to know what scope you were in.

PS4 is a world away from that old nightmare, and it's best left in the past. The easiest way to get a PS3 game onto PS4 is to recompile the Xbox 360 version. Then it's only the shaders that need tweaked.

@Leben You are confused about what "censorship" means. Censorship refers to government or authority legal control of what people and groups can say. Private entities are free to choose what they associate with, and what they don't. "Why should Valve act as a censor?" They're not. It's their store. They give the community input, but it doesn't belong to the community, and that means Valve has final responsibility for it. So they took responsibility and chose not to publish a game they want nothing to do with. That is the opposite of censorship, it's freedom of expression.
