Swery vows to make the Good Life despite a failed Fig, but he’s being harassed over D4Swery vows to make the Good Life despite a failed Fig, but he’s being harassed over D4

Its a bit difficult to explain. His company he was working for was partnered with Microsoft at first for the release of D4 then it was released to PC not being part of Microsoft but then Swery ended up becoming very sick to the point where his white bloodcell count was very very low putting him out of work for a long while which caused him to miss deadlines and have issues with the company he was currently with. He went on to get help with it and also went on a spirtual journey after doing so and became a monk after all of this he decided to leave the company to continue his training as a monk but due to the way he left so suddenly it caused both bad blood and a falling out and the company kept all of his work and IPs for themselves. Fast foward about a year later and he decides to make his own company to persue his continued passion of gaming then about a month ago this leak happened before leading up to this fig croudfunding campaign that just failed.

So the simple answer is, he doesn't even have the RIGHTS to make D4, because he doesn't own the IP anymore. That's not terribly complex

Chinese gamers are review-bombing Kerbal Space Program over a single line of textChinese gamers are review-bombing Kerbal Space Program over a single line of text

Did they not ask a single native Chinese before making this change? Imagine some foreign company, in their endless attempts to be PC, changed "One small step for man, one giant leap for Mankind." to "One small step for me, one giant leap for all-kind." It completely bastardizes it. Good on the Chinese for exercising the free speech that Steam affords them to let the Kerbal devs know their displeasure at the bastardization of their language.

I am imagining it. I'm imagining it right now. I feel nothing, because my sense of self worth is not tied up in how people write or speak the English language.

Bethesda issue statement confirming Nazis are Bad, as Wolfenstein 2’s ad campaign draws flakBethesda issue statement confirming Nazis are Bad, as Wolfenstein 2’s ad campaign draws flak
TsunamiWombat Avatar
There is an unfortunate trend these days where Nazi's think that their shit - and I mean real life nazi's, because there are a handful out there, tiny amounts but they exist - think that their shit is more socially acceptable. I blame this on the Protestor Who Cried Nazi effect. Everyone going back to Bush has been a Nazi, and people are Nazi fatigued. Someone cries Nazi, and then you look around and you do nat zee a Nazi. This leads one to get irritated and assume that there are no Nazi's. This leads to post ironic contrarians like you might find on a certain website thinking it's OK to be Nazi-ish, or that Nazi's aren't that bad.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ Steam review score plummets over Chinese VPN issuesPlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ Steam review score plummets over Chinese VPN issues

Most streamers already delay their streams. The problem isn't from location output, but from others going out of their way to mark them for non-snipers.


Snipers watch streamers to see when they're close to ending/queuing for the next game, to then spam in and out of lobbies, hunting for the lobby the streamer(s) are in. Once they get into a lobby with a streamer, snipers vary in type (generally based on player count/skill level). Some go hunting for the streamer based on their direction/location, trying to guess where they're going and take them out. Others will just watch and drive around where they think the streamer is to draw other players and cause more trouble for the streamer. Either way, when thinking from the snipers perspective their goal is to annoy the streamer, and find satisfaction through others pain.


If people really enjoy this type of satisfaction, all they have to do is get into a competitive game, be it something like EVE (where the games market is built on bullying and backstabbing) or a MOBA/Shooter (where getting good allows tilting/breaking the enemy team). It's not like these kind of players are lacking a medium to enjoy themselves. Instead they're being lazy; harassing streamers to reach a point of bullying faster than they could by improving their skill. Is there really any reason to defend this kind of player? You'd rather protect the person who goes out of there way to find advantages in games? They are the screen-cheaters of last era, and only 1 step away from being hackers in current games.


Probably best to wrap this up by returning to your flawed analogy. The main difference between a mugging and stream-sniping is that the sniper walks away with nothing. There's no cash-incentive; no in-game reward; no tangible benefit to them. Only a smile on their face from annoying others. Your stance seems to back the mugger this scenario, like his theft is acceptable because of the rich persons naivety. Just the same as a thieves, stream snipers should get punished.

Death Threats on the internet are pretty meaningless at this point.

Death threats are never meaningless no matter how desensitized you have become.

It was a much anticipated sequel that was deafeningly decent. It didn't get criticized "too much", it just didn't get carried by it's name like you hopedReply

No i'm pretty sure they're still famous for releasing a much hyped game to near universal disappointment and $60 dollars

That being said, picked it up on heavy sale during the steam summer event, so skolReply

If this actually includes proper co-op and things of value to do together, I'll be getting two copies. But my guess is it won't.

Capcom's biggest games have failed to make a splash this yearCapcom's biggest games have failed to make a splash this year

Street Fighter is a genuine surprise and probably has something to do with how beloved and recent the previous iteration was, and the controversies with this one. As for RE7, in what universe is 3.5 million sales disappointing? Capcom has always had fucking ridiculous sales expectations.Reply
Poloscen89 Avatar

Any game that is victim to the annual release or something close to it, will suffer. Street fgihter is very bland compared to these sprawling titles we have today. Re7 was scary and pretty good, it's length is the same as most RE entries, with rewards for the 3 hour run in almost all entries but still, nothing they put out is good enough at this point. Nothing creative or implimentive enough. If they vontinued that megaman legends series they would have had a way bigger following anyway so when these shitty companies do not work for their fans only for cash, they sink. Now instead of giving what we want they want to shift to mobile gaming lmao dirtballs

No real story to speak of, just "random" events... by which I mean the same 5 events every game.

Depends how much time you want to stick into it. I'm level 70 and still haven't finished it from doing everything/hunting for materials, but i'm getting there. 20-50 hours at least.
