Dev of cancelled Life By You game shares some information, including just two weeks notice of cancellation after being given the thumbs-up a few weeks prior (www.linkedin.com)

I cannot share specific numbers, but I can say that we had an internal metric we were aiming for that had been approved, and that we exceeded that number by a significant portion. We also got a thumbs up a few weeks before launch.

Disastrous, unoptimized launch. Paid DLC whilst the game was still full of performance issues (DLC which was later made free, after outcry. But their hand was shown).

Probably much more, but those are the two big things I remember.

@tb_@lemmy.world avatar

Yeah. And consider the verification process games have to go through on consoles, probably easier to do it all in one big update.

I keep avoiding RPS links for that reason.

Oh, you want to withdraw consent? Have fun disabling them separately for each individual partner.

The TPM is a feature of the motherboard, not the CPU (generally).

You can even get separate TPM modules to plug into your MoBo, if I’m not mistaken.

BoTW-esque game

Sable is really good as well

They need admin permissions to install, not to launch.

But, you know, so does basically any other application you install.

You may get a second pop-up when it begins installing the anti-cheat, but that depends on how the application is configured.

Ubisoft Connect gives me three (!) separate pop-ups whenever it has an update. (or at least it used to).

If you say one thing to a single customer, there’s that. But when you make that snarky post on a public forum it has a chance of getting amplified and misunderstood.

Given how atrocious it is to download drivers from their website…

You’re mostly right but damn, their offerings aren’t pretty.

So if this wholly relies on

No, it doesn’t. But you stopped watching the video.

That said, it is a legitimate argument. Just like “it’s cool to be Spider-man” is a reason to pick up Insomniac’s recent games.


SkillUp argues that in a vacuum, and for a reduced price, Skull and Bones is a decently functional game. But it doesn’t exist in a vacuum and Black Flag is better in (almost) every way.

It’s a reasonable argument. Perhaps my initial comment was a bit mean.

What I find difficult is that it is a pirate game, very clearly. If you don’t enjoy the pirate theme, what were you expecting to get from a review like such?
Perhaps you’re a fan of naval combat. Which, fair.

Lego Star Wars on a PS2 at a friend’s place.

Microsoft doesn’t do that anymore

Literally Starfield.

I mean, it likely will come to PC, but I doubt it will be on PlayStation.

What!?! Do you mean there’s an area between black and white?! That’s impossible!!!

It’s included in the Netflix subscription so no additional cost for subscribers.

Save for all the other price increases

Perhaps, but the seasonal events “complete this grind now or get locked out forever” FOMO bs is very much a new thing, at least in how widespread it is.

In, idk, classic Final Fantasy games you could quit whenever and resume exactly where you left off months down the line. Today games demand your attention like they never really did before.

On Samsung phones you can make stickers just the same way you can on iPhone, with the stock gallery app.

Dunno about Google Photos.

In fact, here it is without the background:

Am a fan too. I’d mention YongYea here, but the unorganized unscripted way in which he makes 20 minute videos on every topic really kills it for me.

SkillUp’s weekly summary is much nicer.

Edit: remembered a word

But that still means they had your plaintext password at some point.

Edit: which, as some replies suggest, may not actually be much of an issue.
I’m still skeptical about them returning it, however.
