That number is misleading, the Unity engine tutorial being released 250 times doesn't count.Reply

Well at least THIS TIME, he's being honest about it being a mobile game. That's about the best I can say about Peter at this point, he's being honest about something.

Nah, they just had a warframe specific convention so the devs were talking a lot about upcoming stuff.

That sounds like the wrong reason to do something, they need to rethink that and take a serious look at whoever came up with that idea.

So if they aren't going to bother explaining the abysmal story to Destiny 1, I bet they'll explain what happened in Destiny 2 somewhere around Destiny 5.

Braneman Avatar
From what I heard PVP in wow right now is a mess, in theory everything being standardized is great, however they balance things wrong. If say Blood Death Knights are doing too much damage they'll dump their strength, however that is what their survivability is based on so they'll become more fragile when it was only their dps that was too high. It's stuff like that, that completely undermines the whole purpose of standardized stats in the first place.Reply

Pvp in wow has been a mess since after we left vanilla which was the only time when it was more or less balanced. All this pvp gear and fancy new stuff they did is just fubar. If it aint broke dont need to reinvent the wheel.

Creation Club is Bethesda's paid mods replacementCreation Club is Bethesda's paid mods replacement

I found it so funny how people jumped to blame Bethesda for the paid mods front. They were never pocketing any money from the Steam's paid mods development. Valve was taking their standard rate for data holding/distribution, and the rest was going to the mod creators.


Problem is as you say: mods have been free up to this point, so nowadays people believe they are entitled to the things. Introducing a paywall would increase the range and depth of mods, resulting in a larger experience with more longevity to each game community. It is a plus for everyone, assuming the public stop throwing a tantrum over it, selling $1000 iron swords and other rubbish to try and abuse the system.


I believe this is what Bethesda are trying to do here: lock the mod list behind there own security checks, to ensure the market grows sensibly. If the modders taste the money, they should get interested enough to invest more into the game for people to enjoy. Conversely, if the paid mod list grows large enough with enough high quality new content, the public will start investing into it. A secondary currency sounds like a bad idea to me (using Gems/Coins instead of £/$) since it introduces a second paywall between the user and them owning the mod. Either way, we should hope this time they succeed. Introducing profits to the content creators is the way to fuel the economy's growth.

Steam had the standard split(30%) then it was up to Bethesda to determine how the rest of the money was split, they went for 45% and left the remaining 25% to the modder. Bethesda decided that the people working to fix their games for them should get 25%.

Work on really basic things like the worst in class mouse issues if you turn on Vsync that have been around since TF2.

That's an easy enough fix. Just turn off v-sync. If we're gonna talk engine level shit they may as well work on the netcode which has been pretty mediocre in Source engine since the start. Hopefully they do that with Source 2

So they aren't actually supporting Windows 7 and 8 until they say they are and they're trying to find workarounds so they won't actually have to now?Reply

No, Microsoft said they weren't going to support new CPUs on legacy operating systems and lo, it has come to pass.


Just funny timing with the Ryzen performance differences.

G2A on Redditor's claims to expose them: he was trusted because his rating was highG2A on Redditor's claims to expose them: he was trusted because his rating was high
Braneman Avatar

The idea is this: Somebody gets a hold of credit card information that isn't theirs, they buy up a whole bunch of keys that they think will sell and they sell them at a price they think they'll sell fast. That way they're exchanging an illegitimate steam key for legitimate money, that being yours, its a really basic form of money laundering and very easily could extend to things beyond stolen credit cards and actually involve and support crime in the real world.


Nobody wants to work with people involved in money laundering, that's a great way to get your company involved in some nasty and very public court cases.


Valve had a similar problem with TF2 keys, that's why for a long time they were being sold for 2.00$ when you could only buy them for 2.50$.

I've never heard anyone even bring up the concept of money laundering in any article or post about G2A, so I don't think that's the core reason...
