    Sony aren't involved in the development of the game. They would not be fed up or push Hello to a release, that's just not how this sort of deal works.

    There will have been an agreed release date,...

    I think they've got way more than the groundwork to make something fantastic here, you can see the cut corners easily and there's definitely some decisions that make sense on paper but not so much in...

    I don't think they'll be able to but I also don't think they'll be able to keep on with Galaxy and their shift to selling new games instead of just old ones without shifting their stance somewhat...

    Not always but yeah, I have no idea why PC Gamer felt the need to go and ask lawyers about anything regarding this. As I said upthread, what'll likely happen is that they'll just work with whoever is...

    Valve give people *a lot* of leeway on Steam to sort their stuff out. They have lines thou shalt not cross (death threats to Valve staff, launching legal action being two prominent ones we've seen)...

    There is a huge overlap between the people who create these memes and the people who harass videogame developers. It's not 100% of people who harass videogame developers by a long chalk but the...

    Because he's directly funding the same people who attack developers. It's hardly childish to not want your work to go towards supporting the people who are out to make your life miserable.

    That sounds like way too much hard work for everyone involved. I just want to write games and sell them, not monitor a crowdsourced bug db.

    Yeah, exactly. It's a bottomless well of interactions. I'd *love* a world where it could be narrowed down to "oh, it's someone having a problem with their XE666" but it just keeps rolling on from...

    One of the larger problems with controlling the reviews and layering condition upon condition is that it assumes that people will play nicely. That's not really what happens especially when we're...

    Oh yup, I wasn't so much excusing it as explaining it. I think this is pretty much up there as a sledgehammer solution that does more harm than good *right now*.

    I don't think it's part of any grand masterplan, just when faced with a choice Valve will choose the option that advantages Steam first and foremost and being data driven, quite frequently forget the...

    I'm finding in recent years the larger problem with how Valve tackle these things is they get left in a half broken state for, well, years.

    I'm fairly sure this will be improved on but right now...

    @TechnicalBen

    Give or take the mineral assets and the laser effect being changed, that's pretty much the game they delivered. Not really sure what you're seeing there. The animals flock the same,...

    I don't think it's really right to say they're nipping this in the bud, this is a consequence of a lot of inaction on Valve's behalf - not just developers gaming the system.

    I'm not really interested in arguing the gameplay, I don't think it is a missed mark in the main - it's going for a very specific vibe that's kinda tangential to what a lot of games go for. I suspect...

    "Appeal to a wider audience" is such a weird loaded phrase though, there's a sort of implied dumbing down to it and like I say - that's not really how it works. What appealing to a wider audience, in...
