I don't think we are really seeing the character anymore, I think the real personality is bleeding through. He seems genuinely upset and seems to to think the ban wasn't justified. Which it clearly was, you don't get to be an ass hole and spoil the game for others just because you are a popular streamer.

I was a watcher of his stream and have decided to no longer watch. I get that it's a character but that doesn't mean you can be an utter ass hole. He of all people should know not to shit on devs, he was part of a dev team himself.

I do like how he claims the game is only worth $5, yet could only handle a single day of not streaming it, his ban was temporary and he couldn't wait out the time. I hope they find a way to perma ban him for ban evading.Reply

It is rare that I see an online character that stays an online character for long.

No worries, it just looked a little odd that one line was missing. I will remove my tinfoil hat for the time being.


All in all, after re-reading the interview it seems he is just on about consoles in general anyway.

Yeah, genuinely just filled that in. It makes more sense that he was talking about vanilla consoles, because even with these mid-gen upgrades, devs have to make sure games run on vanilla systems. So in a way, the Pro and Xbox One X are holding back games by not being completely new-gen systems.

Erm where does it say PS4 pro?

I don't know how you have jumped to that conclusion from what was actually said. Here is the quote in full with the one line where it states what he was pointing at, the one line very conveniently left out of your own quoting despite quoting everything around it:
"You want the honest truth? This machine is not so strong as you think," Fares says, pointing to the PS4 running his game. "This is like a five-year-old PC. If consoles were as powerful as PCs are today, you would see all different games. Most of the work developers put out there is to make them work on consoles."

Oh look it just states PS4, with absolutely no hint or mention of the Pro. The PS4 is a 4 year old machine that was low-mid end PC specs when it came out, that statement makes a lot of sense.

Let's not sink to these sorts of tactics.Reply

Honest mistake, have fixed. Thanks for pointing it out. My mind just filled that in for some reason. I have a Pro myself.

It's going to be embarrassing if the biggest thing for Scorpio is a third party title. Crackdown is popular but its not a system seller. Sea of Thieves is unproven so wont sell systems. Forza isn't a system seller.

The biggest thing here is Anthem and I will be surprised if they have managed to wrangle even a timed exclusive on that considering the Xbox Ones market share currently.

I suspect they will announce some new first party titles but I will be surprised if they are out at Scorpio launch (Assuming it is this year). There is no Xbox One game I can think of where a graphics upgrade will convince people to buy an updated model.

State of Decay 2 is the one I am hoping to see and get a release date for.

Well at least they have inadvertently let us know to avoid another shitty port. No reviews suggests bigger problems.

Keys scammed by email are legit "because they come from the developers", say G2AKeys scammed by email are legit "because they come from the developers", say G2A
Kinth! Avatar
While I disagree with most things G2A say, I think they are right on this one.

It is not their responsibility to catch keys that devs have doled out to people they incorrectly thought were youtubers/streamers. It is the devs responsibility to vet the people they give keys to. Just because it's a process that takes a long time or that they don't like doing, does not mean they get to shift the responsibility off to others like G2A.

It would be nice if G2A could help them with the process but trying to make it purely G2A's responsibility is just shifting blame for their own mistakes. It also shows a misunderstanding of the problem. Even if G2A did offer a blacklist code feature that devs could enter keys into before they hand them out to supposed reviewers, they would just get sold elsewhere. G2A is far from the only grey market seller, it is just the most well known.

The first line of defence on this issue is the devs themselves. They are the ones who need to solve this issue, ideally with a process they could automate. Hell, they could even work together to create a joint website attached to a database, that can validate (set of arbitrary requirements, certain amount of subs or followers etc, with some account e-mail verification) and store trusted reviewers/previewers. Devs jump on to site search a name and get told if it's a trust worthy person to share keys to.

Acknowledging them, especially in such a public manner, is giving the trolls exactly what they want, and so the cycle continues.Reply

Ignoring them doesn't work and never has. It's a myth.

Define real world and then explain to me your rationale of how making real money via doing work somehow doesn't fit the definition of a job.


Just because it isn't boring, menial, minimum wage labour does not mean it isn't a job.

Don't you guys get it? He works on "the internet" so he's "lazy." Come on everyone, gotta work on your old man narrative. Damn kids.

Kinth! Avatar

Don't you whippersnappers know that it's not a real job, unless you are a wage slave working for the majority of your waking life on minimum wage barely being able to afford to stay alive. All while someone else gets rich off your hard work?

Former Star Citizen devs claim impossible standards wasted months of development, Roberts respondsFormer Star Citizen devs claim impossible standards wasted months of development, Roberts responds

I live near Foundry 42 UK and they are constantly hiring. Either they have a massive amount of staff or their employee turnover is through the roof.

Roberts seems very much like Schafer or Molynuex. Developers who had major success in the earlier days of gaming and when they had publishers wrangling them in. They don't understand that you can't just add a feature to a game quickly and easily anymore. They don't understand how to control the scope of their projects and get distracted by new ideas too easily. They see something and think it can just be added easily on a whim.
