No such thing as bad press. Fact is, it generates reaction - positive or negative is irrelevant to the click count that pays the bills.
Don't blame the team for bad leadership from the top...
Odds are they were managed by people who leveraged their experience in traditional media (TV / Radio / Film) into leadership roles in video game development because media is media is media (it really is not).
There's no way anyone who plays games and who did actual production work on Andromeda was happy about forcing the product out when they did.
And 'talent' tends to be measured by products shipped, not the quality of those products. A person who shipped 5 pieces of poop in a year is technically 5 times more talented than a person who releases 1 piece of awesome in the same time frame according to the metric most executives follow.
They missed the whole spirit of ME and delivered something Ubisoft like.
So... why didn't you type "four" instead of hitting 4?
He's too pathetically lazy. Unless of course he's looking for something to complain about, then he's kickin' full of energy.
What of this has to do with actual competition or hardcore nerds spewing insults?
This is a situation where a so-called professional media broadcaster ended the coverage of an event they were paid to handle with an arguably tasteless montage. There's little to nothing about it that has anything to do with the nasty attitudes you deal with while playing the actual game.
Though the misguided attitude YOU present may be indicative of one of the bigger issues plaguing the growth of gaming within mainstream media.
Having actually worked as QA on minor / budget games. I can only imagine the exponential growth of potential bugs and issues in a AAA open world game.
So... YES. YES they would ABSOLUTELY still have that same attitude otherwise they'd only be getting ready to maybe release Oblivion. Soon.
It's incredibly naive and misguided to assume that a developer can address and squish all the bugs AND maintain a reasonable release date. There's always going to be a lot of stuff that is clearly a bug, or not quite right.
Ultimately, it's a matter of priorities. Game breaking bugs that prohibit the Player from completing a quest will always be top priority. And when you reach crunch time you can bet everything you own there are absolutely no developers who give any craps about any sort of minor visual bug that isn't breaking the game while they're trying to get it out the door. And getting their bills paid. And maybe finally getting an actual day off.
Yep. Anyone who thinks otherwise clearly has never been involved in a software project of any sort. Definitely not one of the size and complexity of a bethesda open world game.
Honestly, why are you playing ranked if you want to do some stupid battle point thing? It should be disabled in ranked games tbh, if you want to do some stupid side shit go do it in unranked. If you can't do it in unranked then that makes it even stupider.
Are you really that selfish to ruin everyone elses game and waste their time cause you want to do some stupid battle pass thing? Instead of having a decent game where you aren't feeding? They added too much stupid shit to the game, that people aren't even trying to play the actual game anymore.
