I think you’re just deflecting, I saw you near the body.
I know right? Fucking hilarious that the screenshot struggled to load but the ads didn’t, so on first pass the image wasn’t even there and then on the second pass I thought it was another ad and scrolled right passed it. It also doesn’t help when they break the RSS feed and the comments because of all the ads. It’s… Read more
Speaking of improvements, as much as I love this game, they really should improve the texture resolution, they distract from the gorgeous art direction and it’s something I’ve wanted since they dropped the support for the ps3, a real antialliasing would be nice too. If they eventually make a ps5 version I hope they… Read more
I wonder what race the people fighting were.
Weren’t people really irked that this game made no bones about ripping off BotW? When I saw the trailer back when the controversy started, the climbing, movement, swimming, cooking all looked identical. Some very similar enemy types and even a glider. Heck, I remember the grass burning in the exact same way as BotW.… Read more
Wonder when Fire Emblem Awakening will get a Switch port at this point. Also, can I just vent that I don’t really care for Kotaku’s main page? I have no idea what’s recent and what’s not recent anymore with the new layout. So I just wait a week and come back because at that point it’ll all be new to me.
If they Separated the gachas for characters and weapons I’d probably go back to playing but I quit after 2 weeks of the last Beta over garbage rolls of crap weapons and never getting any characters... Let alone the ones I wanted. Multiplayer also takes way to much time to unlock. Read more
Software engineer here (former gamedev, currently corporate). We mostly accept that crunch is a fact of life in software development (and a lot of other industries). Simply budgeting more time doesn’t work as a general solution because work tends to fill the available time without necessarily progressing further. Some… Read more
In some cases missing your contract date means paying fees. Sometimes missing a date means losing a license if they are working with one (Like The Witcher). And in some those cases of paying fees, it could mean downsizing just to make ends meet. Devs hate losing their jobs too.
Which is not always the case, hopefully… Read more
It’s a “work saturdays for a month or so” level of crunch, not the cancerous “70 hours for 18 months” level that gets thrown around by other developers. Even if they worked at 100% until then, it’d only add, what, 1-2 weeks of work onto the project? It’d still be November, but with so much money already tied up in… Read more
You’re right. More like 1996. I was in elementary school when that show first aired, and I loved the shit out of it. My RatTrap figure was a prized possession.
And in Canada, where I grew up, the show was called Beasties for some reason. They didn’t want to include the word “Wars” for the title of a children’s show, I… Read more
