if you’re trying to convince people to buy an xbox instead of a playstation, yeah. And keep current xboxers within the ecosystem. post-purchase affirmation is a big component of advertising too.

I don’t even think that was the issue, the show was just fucking awful no matter how much or little it had to do with Halo.

sounds like fanfic.

In practice, this is a total conversion for Fallout 2, reshaping the isometric classic with new characters, quests, story missions, weapons, and items based on what the Fallout community has learned about Van Buren over the years.

what is even the point of making a taxi game MMO? just so you can see other players driving fares around you and potentially fucking your shit up?

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

but at least inGTA you can have PvP and Co-op… what is the PvP or co-op play in driving taxi fares?

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

Those are racing games, not Taxi games. Of course racing games are a perfect fit for online PvP. But you’re not racing against other players while driving a taxi fare.

or worst case wait for the legendary version in a couple years with bug fixes and all dlc included.

the article says they wanted the moon to be an area in the base game.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

as long as they don’t have space travel between every objective and hundreds of barren procedurally generated planets it will be fine.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

they were working on starfield?

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

this bethesda anti circlejerk has gotten way out of hand. i hated starfield too but that doesn’t change how awesome oblivion and skyrim were.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

Don’t even need to get into ranking them, it’s just completely asinine to say Oblivion and Skyrim are not even good at all. Circlejerk nonsense from someone who probably hasn’t played any of them.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

i agree that skyrim is not as good as oblivion, but that isn’t what we were talking about.

Do you stand by the statement that Morrowind was the last “good” elder scrolls game? In other words, you think Oblivion and Skyrim are not good at all?

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

cyberpunk was buggy but fundamentally sound. starfield is flawed in its core, no amount of bug fixing or system tweaking is going to fix it. they’d have to cut out space and planets entirely.

EA didn’t have time to fuck up DAO after buying BioWare.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

holy shit it has really been ten years.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

they’re about 10 years too late on this. can’t even blame the pandemic.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

but then you can’t promote george clooney in all the marketing to draw people in.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

could also just be as simple as getting people’s feet in the door to their marketplace. if you already have an account maybe you’ll be fractionally more likely to buy other stuff in the store. multiply that by a few million or whatever… it’s not nothing.

What are some eras of gaming that you've stopped feeling nostalgic for? (kbin.social)

As I've gotten older as a player, I have found myself dropping some eras of gaming that I used to be nostalgic for. One of them is the 8-bit era, the NES days. I have played some of the best that system had to offer and I will never say that system didn't have any good games....

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

This is when the whole “if all you find are assholes, you must be one yourself” rhetoric does not apply when it comes to multiplayer games.

it’s the internet in general.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

they got the IP, that’s all they wanted.

acosmichippo,

not “features” per se, but consoles have a better performance-to-price ratio compared to handhelds. In the bill of materials for a handheld you’re paying for a screen and battery that are unnecessary expenses if you just need a console. in a console, that money will go towards higher powered hardware to run games, and maybe some other ancillary things. Also in a console you can have a better cooling system since you’re not constrained to a mobile form factor. Also in a console you can use higher power since performance is not being balanced with batter life.

acosmichippo, (edited )
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

if those nintendos had to build in a screen or battery they’d have even worse performance for the price.

yes, PC has some commonalities with consoles, but there are other aspects that make a PC a PC rather than a console.

This is not an arbitrary discussion, it’s a semantic discussion. these terms have non-arbitrary meanings.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

i would say the wiiu is a special case console. they tried adding a screen to a typical console design and it didn’t really work. that’s why they pivoted to the switch which is much more like a portable than a console.

the vast, vast majority of consoles don’t have screens built into their controllers.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

The person I was responding to was citing costs accrued for screen and battery as a reasoning for why steam deck is not a console

No, i was answering your question “what features is steam deck missing compared to consoles”.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

I liked it as much as the others ASIDE from the tank missions. they leaned on the tank WAY too much. There are two or three tank battles where you will be pulling your hair out for sure. Definitely focus on upgrading the tank as much as you can because you will need all the help you can get.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

they’re right though. it has nothing to do with “defending” anyone, that’s just what AAA means.

en.m.wikipedia.org/…/AAA_(video_game_industry)

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

it’s all informal marketing jargon in every industry bro. this is not a hill to die on.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

not necessarily, they can be cosmetic only.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

so what if it isn’t as good as w3? it doesn’t ruin w3.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

what in the ever living fuck is a skin gambling site, and why do they have beef.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

are you saying DLC or expansions are never a good idea?

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

that’s why the manufacturer needs to lead the way with a killer app.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

exactly. maybe you guys just made a shitty game and can’t accept that.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

but that was like 6 whole months ago. the market is totally different now. /s

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

those gamers wouldn’t be the ones who want powerful women in the first place. The article is imagining gamers who want powerful women AND are afraid of them.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

kinda like chatGPT is trained on a bunch of PR speak.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

really don’t see the point of having a metro system in this game. seems like it would just be even less convenient than driving or fast traveling.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

100%. The best part of Bethesda open world games is exploring the open space between towns, quests, objectives, etc. Fast travel is an option, but rarely necessary. If you rely on it you will miss lots of cool stuff.

Not so in Starfield, the space between objectives is literally empty space.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

oh good, this reminds me I haven’t bothered to leave a negative review yet. let me correct that.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

yes. the point is it doesn’t work well in a video game.

Here's what a random person on the internet thought of The Outer Worlds (lemmy.world)

I played the Steam version of the base game, with no DLC. I did not play the Spacer’s Choice “remaster” as it has a reputation for being broken and poorly put together. I played the game to completion on normal difficulty, completing most of the side quests, spending time with all my companions, and trying to get the most...

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

I’m not sure starfield can be fixed. the concept is fundamentally flawed imo.

acosmichippo,
@acosmichippo@lemmy.world avatar

exactly. I gave MMOs a try, I gave looter shooters a try, and eventually I figured out GAAS is just not for me. single player offline only games please and thank you.
