One thing I hope they do is keep the worst ratings somewhere as an "all time low" for this game. So like you have the score now, and then underneath you have the "all time low" so games like BF2 have a reminder years onward that these developers sucked.

OK so trusting somebody who uses bots to tell us whether or not anti-bottling software is any good. He may be right but I would like a confirmation from other sources before I say anything definitive as this guy is in some ways obligated to say that botting detection tech is immoral.Reply

And why botting. I really don't get it.

Sea of Thieves will get six “major” content updates this yearSea of Thieves will get six “major” content updates this year
Braneman Avatar
The first update will be hungering skeletons from underwater, no different from the skeletons currently in the game... but this time they're hungry.

In Cursed sails your sails will be cursed. That's it, the curse makes those fetch quests the factions give you happen 5% farther away.

In Forsaken Shores you'll find all new continents... of skeletons, the same type you've been fighting since the game came out, except they're forsaken! Meaning they have "forsaken" in their name.

And the Cursed Cannonball is the most terrifying update of all. One out of every ten Cannonballs will be CURSED to fly 1% farther than all the others.Reply

The biggest problem with Dust 514 was that it was shackled to the PS3 at the end of it's lifespan and the devs couldn't really handle making the type of game it was. The game was so radically unbalanced that games devolved into spawn camping or being spawn camped, one player corporation controlled a majority of space and was completely unbudgeable because it was too easy to defend. I hope they've learned their lessons from the previous game.

If it was there year round, people wouldn't buy loot boxes because it wouldn't be time limited. They'd lose money because it would be practical to get things for free.

I don't get it, the design is basically Widowmaker from Overwatch, in fact it's more conservative than Widowmaker.

Chrono Trigger’s first PC patch finally gives us sharp pixelsChrono Trigger’s first PC patch finally gives us sharp pixels

From what I understand it was really buggy, had the mobile game UI, put a lazy automatic filter over the sprites that could easily have been a toggle, introduced bugs into the port. AND they're trying to sell the filter they could have set as a toggle as "updated graphics" and the game is 15$ this many years later in a buggy, arguably worse looking, inferior state.

They also apparently screwed up all the pre-order bonuses in one way or another.

Bugs and pre-order shenanigans I can understand, but whining about filters and the UI? That's still pretty stupid.

Fortnite cross-play is now live between PCs and consoles, but it’s not working for everyoneFortnite cross-play is now live between PCs and consoles, but it’s not working for everyone

I mean you can hook up a bluetooth mouse and keyboard to most phones/tablets, but I feel like most people aren't going to do that and they're just going to be at a disadvantage, not as much as if it was a FPS but still it's a third person shooter. I cannot see this going over very well, especially with how chokingly small most phone storage is and how much they make you pay for more.Reply

I agree, while cross-platform between PC, consoles and mobile may be awesome to exist I would be surprised if mobile-only servers didn't get offered in the first couple weeks. Either there'll be some ridiculous aim-lock to try and balance the gameplay styles, or mobile gamers will stop playing until they're able to compete against only other mobile players.


If history stands as a test for anything then consoles will eventually get their own anti-PC servers too, as it is far faster/easier to learn to aim accurately with a mouse than a joystick.

It's going to be the TF2/Counterstrike hat system, all the cards are common, but you'll have a "travel worn" version and a "gold foil diamond edition" and it will all be ultra basic filters that are automated.Reply

Yeah maybe like DotA 2 rarities common, uncommon, rare, mythical, legendary, immortal and arcana. But it's only cosmetics.
