Are PC ports just always broken? submitted by spike11117 to gaming

karak 0 points 14 points (+14|-0) ago

Interesting question. Putting it aside for a moment I can say that as a reviewer many games are broken on console as well. But all that being said the only real difference is the combination of software and hardware platforms that need to be tested to verify a game works on PC, that's per OS as well as they may not just be made for Windows. And frankly that's a large enough job WITHOUT a developer getting shortchanged and not having enough time to work on the title proper.

As for what the community can do? Continue to support refund programs like Steam and other digital services have by indicating to those services that they are vital. Money taken back out of the pockets of publishers and devs doesn't take long to make a big impact.

As well as not buying the games until they are vested as working however that is actually not the fix many people think it is as SOMEONE has to get it:) To test it, additionally that's not a fix, that's a community action patch and that's not exactly where the energy should be coming from or going. Thats why I still think refund programs are the big game changer here as being truthful and vocal about the problems you have with a game.

I have played all of the Elder Scrolls and loved it. Just started playing Fall Out 3, can't seem to get myself interested. Should I continue? Anyone else ? submitted by Westhenorth to gaming

Ok, I have done entire hour long podcasts on this very subject. Fallout 3 doesn't grab many people. I tried it a total of 24 times. How I finally got through it was to make sure to get out of the Vault and then NOT follow the main quests. I actually just turned left and started walking and adventuring and soon the world sort of...opened up around me.

Additionally if you have done that you can follow the main quest to Megaton but usually when this happens its because the main narrative wasn't good enough up front.

How long is the average length of the testing for bugs phase during development? submitted by dirty_doggy_dick to gaming

karak 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago

Thats normal. I have worked on bug testing before and it can stretch to months because the cycle isn't just find find find. Its find, verify, change ingame, retest both that original issue and if it causes additional ones. And move on.

Gearbox Working On 'Authentic' New Brothers in Arms Title submitted by Noctias to gaming

karak 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

I am interested in whatever they make but not sure how much of that is wanting a WWII shooter and how much of that is to see what Randy Pitchford says about the game before its released.
