Tbh, game studios often require special equipment such as dev kits and high-end PCs for development. It makes sense that they might not want to send this equipment home, especially if it is an unreleased console"s dev kit. Game studios honestly seem more justified in not having WFH

I actually don’t like their games. I am speaking as someone who used to work for a AAA, both before and during COVID shelter in place

Not every dev is compiling code to run on a devkit

Depends on the studio. There will be a lead platform, and if that platform is a console, then a majority will run on a devkit.

surely they are not running a new build every day.

In the studio I worked in, we ran new builds almost twice a day. That doesn’t include the iterative changes you make if you are a programmer. If you don’t run new builds contantly, that means you aren’t doing any actual work if you are on the engineering side. If you are in art you might not really screw around with too many builds. If you are a director or producer, you might not either if you’re bad at your job.

Maybe the tools have changed since last I worked in the industry (or maybe we weren’t good at using all the features), but I never saw that anyone had remote access to the devkits. I could remote into my workstation, but it surely was not the best way to work.

Correct me if I am wrong, but this doesn’t seem to work for devkits? Like if I want to run something on a PS4 devkit, I can’t use parsec for that, can I?

I’ll definitely keep this in mind if I end up going back to the industry. Thanks!

Cool, so you’ve outed yourself as someone not 100% against racial slurs. If Nintendo was a black-owned company, would you have done the same?

Awesome, so Japanese settings will soon be oversaturated in games. We already got Sekiro, Ghost of Tsushima (and will presumably get a sequel), and whatever that other Monster Hunter style game was. We will also be getting an Assassin’s Creed in Japan. Sounds like Santa Monica doesn’t know what to do so they are following trends. Really don’t think Kratos belongs in Japan.

open-world action game

It’s amazing that devs are still crapping out games in this genre.

This would be cool if this ended up being “Alien Isolation but with dinosaurs,” but I am not quite sure that’s the direction they are taking based on the trailer alone.

donkey kong on n64 had you what go collect bananas or something? is that fun?

I don’t know what caused people to all of a sudden complain about this game (maybe a dunkey video?). This game is still fun by modern standards regrdless of whether you 100% it or not
