Rockstar Games...


Recommended Posts

You know, this game made the Arts page in the New York Times yesterday, and all I could think is, why the hell are they wasting space with Rockstar and spending zero time on the games and studios that are actually worth their time? It's just because Rockstar has a public image for being so "scandalously ghetto" or whatever. And the big punchline was how surprisingly the PC wasn't the bully, but fighting them. *yawn* ... is that the kind of mainstream news its come to in the videogaming world?


Anyway, this game looks ok. The open endedness is of course always welcome, but even with that it looks like it will get old fast, faster than GTA for sure, where you at least could cruise around in a fast car and take tight turns if nothing else.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

I found it rather fun. They had a cool idea about making missions that you can do whenever you feel like it, but also providing a simulated city to explore or just relax and drive around in. Also, each iteration of GTA3 has improved upon the previous one and added more interactivity and new modes of transportation.


What drives me nuts, is that the news seems to focus on relatively small aspects of the game. That whole thing about being able to kill prostitutes to get your money back was just a logical consequence of the simulated nature of the game: If you pay somebody in cash, then they must be carrying "your" money, and if you send somebody to the hospital or morgue they drop any money they're carrying. Killing prostitutes for your money back was an example of emergent gameplay.


I wish for once a news story would focus on the blunt satirical nature of the game.

      Perhaps an unpopular opinion: TDM team might benefit from someone with actual QA experience; someone with naturally and professionally developed curiosity, who is interested in how and why things work, how they break At least to me it's kind of mind-boggling how untested some rather important features are (first the absence alert feature for items, now the rope +body carry behavior).

      Bumped into an interesting piece of wisdom called Hyrum's Law:
      With a sufficient number of users of an API, it does not matter what you promise in the contract: all observable behaviors of your system will be depended on by somebody.

      I love playing The Dark Mod when it's cold in my place. Bonus points when it's a bit (or even very) dark and it's raining, too.

      I've been having stutters in Vulkan, apparently it's Nvidia Drivers' fault, so I reverted to 512 according to this: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/geforce-graphics-cards/5/505679/regular-microstutter-in-vulkan-applications-after-/?topicPage=40

      And no, that did NOT fix it. What's going on? My GPU is an RTX 2070, by the way.
