    This.
    In fact, I'd pay just to have a choice on which alpha I can run, as some were great, but it bounced the tweaks/balances back and forth between awesome to boredom. :(

    It's still the same aim. You can buy 1 share (penny shares use to exist too etc IIRC). There is an investment for a customer (pre-order) or an investment for a customer (stock purchase). One is...

    I want to try it out on an OLED (for the contrasting colours of the starfield) curved display. Seen a HD one, but a UHD would be even better... think the local store would let me plug in my PC to...

    They do/can/did/almost did. You use to/could/can/almost could of (I forget if it's been stopped), but in the "futures market" of movies. AKA, "The Producers", just IRL. :O

    Yep. It's very easy to mod the aggravation levels and spawn levels in game without effecting the engine/seed. They could naturally ramp up the nature/animal/spaceship spawn rate for E3, then set it...

    IIRC the first/early demos they did "fudge" the locations in that that was the pre-defined bit. They had live playthrough, but the locations were pre-selected. Still totally live/procedural though....

    Art is art (or taste as in my icream example). Some people have opposing tastes and ideas. Thus letting direct unfettered communication between developers and customers can get scary.

    If it ain't broke...

    ... service it. But don't replace. :P

    I tend to only do upgrade with new systems cos I'm old fashioned.

    Problem is, to add story, proper working and interesting story, would add an order of magnitude more development time to this game.

    Perfect example is SOC and ICO and TLG. Development times off...

    Spore is interesting. If you ever got the pre-order bonuses, there were some alpha toys. I'll have to dig them up (find them) again, as IIRC they had more depth and gameplay than the actual game...

    In fact, a lot of popular/successful developers outsource the moderation, even if they "own" the hardware the forum runs on. Owning only the hardware/software allows them to set hard rules (like no...

    Slight nit pick. It's not the draw distance. It's the time it takes to stream/generate the content. So theoretically the PC build should suffer less from this than the PS4 build. At least I'd hope...

    I got indie games off other platforms... nay, direct! The week before. :P

    "I don't use guns" then kicks security guard out 30 story window kind of defeats the point.

    "I can't use guns, they have finger print recognition" adds a reason to gameplay that matches story.

    They went for 8 cores so the OS can run in the background. IE, download/updates/checks/media/social and all that gumph without effecting the game in any way (both X1 and P4 do this).

    They also...

    Hype for a lot of games I'll probably never play or own the console too. They look great though (Last Guardian, No Mans Sky etc).

    Oh, I've tried like lots of different setups. Even "juggling" at times. :D

    And either by accidental discovery and/or wiki search I found some of the "not suppose to get" items.

    Hammerfight. A strange and interesting little game. Solo Dev, who never made anything else after.

    Hard to describe, you play as a Steampunk flying hammer machine. The story is strange, but has...

    They know that. So put less effort in V2 of some things. "Latest" is no guarantee to "better" or even "good design". I've seen companies cut out features, design in broken systems, just because the...

    I should really just sit and laugh. But I'll post anyhow.

    I would assume, Valve doing all the maths they do. The average drop/price is probably below inflation/electric cost of gaining the drops....

    Duel shock make my fingers want to implode in my hand. A very nice controller, I just feel the wrong shape/size for it, and I'm tiny.

    Which logitech controller? Not all are made equal. But the 360 pad I love. Not tried the Xbone yet, might be as good or better.

    It's not the best example. They made more money during the sales and continued to after (people kept buying). It's either a good turn for a good developer, or an outliner. :P
