You’re right and you’re wrong. While this does feel like a knee-jerk reaction to Epic, it’s nothing to do with “I guess we’d better better improve the client to keep users from jumping ship.” If you look at the changes, this is everything to do with “Let’s improve the developer experience to show them why we’re worth…
As a person who really likes dogs - look at the icon, for real, dogfriends are best friends - a situation like TD2's could make that really hard to stick with.
I remember upgrading the K-9 unit first thing in D1. Still wasn’t pettable but better than nothing.
Don’t they resupply themselves to some extent with the convoys? As you mentioned, there is this whole crazy system with the map, control points, liberation, etc. that is just not well explained. I don’t think you can actually LOSE a control point from lack of supply until the endgame.
Wait I can shoot dogs but not pet dogs?! What?!
This sums up all my feelings about the animals in this game. Also not being able to pet dogs in this game is a travesty on par with human trafficking, perhaps worse. What gives, ubi?
Meanwhile in Far Cry: New Dawn, every animal drops meat, every dog is out for blood, and you need to kill a boar to craft a flamethrower.
I’m sure it only cost the company a gazillion dollars in profit — the actual ink itself was only worth about $100.
Extra cup holders are an “option.”
This is basically the I Love Lucy vacuum cleaner salesman episode, except with airplanes, lots of dead people, and zero accountability.
Upcoming hack-and-slash RPG BloodRoots is all about its verbs: “smash, slice, crush, blast, crack, slam, burst, break, split, slit, gut, tear, gash, gouge, scoop, cut, chop, dice, hash, grind,” it promises.
Did you ever listen to the 2015 release of Yasunori Mitsuda & Millennial Fair - To Far Away Times: Chrono Trigger & Chrono Cross Arrangement Album? That’s one of my favorite Game-related soundtracks, though I may give a very small edge to Never More -Reincarnation Persona 4-.
.......most of Oklahoma.
Beware, those people are one imaginary being away from rape and murder.
Makes me wonder when they’ll ever update the Mac Pro. Last I heard, they wanted it be more user friendly and upgradable akin to the old “cheese grater” but nothing since that. I had a “trashcan” Mac Pro for a little while, did what upgrades I could to it down to the CPU. While it was a really cool machine on it’s own, …
But what if Stadia basically gives you image quality equivalent to the highest of high-end PCs not only at this moment, but going forward as processing power increases? I mean, I’ve got a pretty great RTX 2070 rig and I can’t run most games at 4k/60fps on high settings.
So to me it comes down to lag, game library and…
I tend not to disagree with you. I played project stream and really enjoyed the experience. I see streaming as the future of gaming. But my biggest fear is Google’s penchant for big launches and then abandoning an idea.
so takes 4 yrs to get there and 1 yr to get back? what did i miss here?
All they need is a few popular streamers to enjoy the concept, to be honest. It’s a lot easier to get into the market with something like this compared to literally everything else they’ve tried to do.
