Hearthstone bug is manifesting way too many duplicate cards

GamesProgrammer

2 years ago

@ambershee Not something you need to suspect they have given detailed info on how packs work

you are guaranteed 1 rare or higher per pack, chances of others are listed somewhere on reddit and there is also pity timers, you are guaranteed an epic every 8 packs of the same expansion and a legendary every 40 packs of an expansion, these timers reset if you get one early.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 might yet be great, but the episodic structure does it no favours

GamesProgrammer

@OmegaNemesis28 I know its pedantic but its actually 4.99 *4 which is 19.96 vs 19.99. Just usually with these things you save a few pound with the season pass, not cost a tiny bit more.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 is being released across four weekly episodes priced at £4.99 each, with a season pass available for £19.99


So its more expensive to buy the season pass than to buy them separately?

@Bauul Yeah that would work fine, other than if you were in a lobby it might kick you out when you put game into suspend mode, but as others have stated you can always just save them off in game and edit and upload them after.

PlayStation 4 sales help Sony's game division to profit

GamesProgrammer

@Mr-Writer They mean sold to Retailers, which is shipped. Its the language that is used in these kinds of reports. Sorry if you dont like it, but my initial comment was just to correct the article, not down play PS4, as you cant down play it, its still outsold the Wii and the PS2 in the same time period, it is a MONSTER!

@Mr-Writer Because this is from there quarterly financial report, where they have to detail what they have shipped. Theres no anti PS conspiracy here, this is an official document they release every quarter like every company has too.

Again its shipped not sold, but this does mean its the fastest selling console in history still, as it has outshipped the Wii for the same time period.

These exclusivity agreements are more an embarrassment these days, they should know gamers will just keep digging till they get the truth. Either buy the IP or spend the money on creating a new IP, timed exclusives are just anti consumer.

@Bertie Fair points, but i cant admire his points like you do, he says only Sony PR cares right now, even though there working directly with MS engineers, so clearly MS care a lot too.

And when performance articles are some of the most clicked and commented on any gaming site, clearly gamers care too.

GamesProgrammer

@Bertie So Bertie your going to shut down digital foundry then, as you see to agree that no one cares about performance differences. But i have a feeling you wont because i bet there some of your most read articles.

Obviously there are people out there that are not videophiles, but no one should pretend that audience doesn't exist or is in any way a minority, especially a writer for a website that is known for publishing articles for that demographic.

GamesProgrammer

I do find these comments strange, consumers read comparisons of tech products all the time before making an informed purchase, of course they care.

The real question is if he really thinks no one cares and gamers cant tell the difference, why even bother optimising with MS to get it above 720p, surely that's a waste of time and resources if its not meaningful to gamers?
