    NFTs are such an amazing time saver. As soon as someone starts talking about how great they are, you can turn it off and go watch something worthwhile.

    Man I hope someone comes out with a cattle prod you trash man.

    You left out the completely sincere non shrieking bark he let out afterwards.

    To call it a laugh would be dishonest to future generations who may not know what genuine happiness sounds like.

    A Note from the Rockstar Games Team RE: Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition
    November 19, 2021
    Hi everyone,

    We want to provide an update regarding the unexpected technical issues that came to light as part of the launch of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition.

    Firstly, we want to sincerely apologize to everyone who has encountered issues playing these games.

    The Grand Theft Auto series — and the games that make up this iconic trilogy — are as special to us as we know they are to fans around the world. The updated versions of these classic games did not launch in a state that meets our own standards of quality, or the standards our fans have come to expect.

    We have ongoing plans to address the technical issues and to improve each game going forward. With each planned update, the games will reach the level of quality that they deserve to be.

    A new Title Update is on the way in the coming days for all versions of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition that will address a number of issues. We will update everyone as soon as it is live.

    In the meantime, it pains us to mention that we are hearing reports of members of the development teams being harassed on social media. We would kindly ask our community to please maintain a respectful and civil discourse around this release as we work through these issues.

    While one of the goals of the Definitive Editions was to allow players to enjoy these games on modern platforms for many years to come, we also understand that some of you would still like to have the previous classic versions available for purchase.

    We will be adding the classic PC versions of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas back to the Rockstar Store shortly as a bundle. Additionally, everyone who has purchased Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition for PC from the Rockstar Store through June 30, 2022, will receive these classic versions in their Rockstar Games Launcher library at no additional cost. We will update everyone as soon as these are back in the Rockstar Store.

    Once again, we'd like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding while we work through these updates to ensure these games meet everyone's justifiably high standards.

    Sincerely,
    Rockstar Games
    "unexpected." Sure.

    Whether harassment happens or not, it's now a standard part of the "apology" playbook to claim it is happening to try to throw some chaff out. But not to assist any team members receiving said harassment, I have no doubt...

    I'm about 3 hours in to Dawn: Song of the Evertree and it really is just island decluttering and picking up decoration pieces to go in your village with some very slight citybuilding so far. I have two villagers! They're both weird but they like the town so I invited them to stay, and built an inn so people cam just visit.

    In between doing that, I've flown up to a treebranch to harvest currency and get building supplies and pet new animals that have shown up.

    And there's a non-binary option on the character select! Which is great! I can be myself! I can get character models right for character creation since I look like an NPC [bald, beard, frequently wears a shirt that says SHIRT on it and a hat that has a picture of that hat on it] so pronouns are such a huge thing for me.

    I'm digging it and can't wait to leave work so I can clean my little island some more and have a book refer to me as they.

    Update: I have four villagers now, and moving buildings after they're constructed is as easy clicking and moving to a new spot. I was able to move all the houses out of the way so that I could have a bakery, inn and flowershop in specific area, and made a kind of culdesac with the three houses.

    The more you clean up the first area you unlock, the larger it gets - this trip, I was able to start playing with the animals that spawned in the areas I had cleaned 3 times before [the map expands, the area you cleaned now stays clean, and you can harvest materials from each cleaned section] before trekking over to a cave that popped up with the new area. It also spawned an NPC shop, which sold keys and relics - I ignored it since I didn't know what they do - and went into the cave, which had light, unfailable platforming and an easy block puzzle. At the end? A bunch of chests that contained currency, and two locked chests. So that's what the keys were for. But one of the chests without a lock had a key inside it, so I was able to grab the loot and leave

    Something the game does that I love - whenever you do *anything* in the cleaning sections, there's a pinata of currency, town decorations, and upgrade pieces. Water a seed? Loot. Sing for a wilting plant? Oh baby. Water a tree that's eight times your size? Gonna have to put on your running shoes because that shit is popping everywhere.

    I don't think Rockstar necessarily didn't see very much of the game before release, though I do think it's possible. which to me is less of a defense and more of a confession.

    anyway, piracy becomes more valid every day, since they care way more about preservation of media than the companies who own shit.

    This is regarding your last spoiler, only click it if you want a clarification.
    There is specifically one Former, you basically chase it off and do not kill it. This is made explicit in the (highly recommended to play) post game DLC, "Foundation."

    Dead Cells is one of those games that I keep seeing and keep going "wait that came out right? these aren't early access updates, this game is complete, isn't it?"

    I don't know how else to put this so I'll put it plainly: you can and will discover a method to break the game's systems over your knee like a twig

    You may feel the game will try to stop you, that there's no way that this idea you've developed will be allowed! But it will be

    And you'll feel very clever right up until the moment you read that someone else broke the game just as badly in a completely different way and then you will realize the mad genius of the game: its rules are a prison only for itself

    This is me being very vague because I think there's a bunch of ways to do this that slowly make themselves apparent (the game introduces new places on the map to visit that get you different benefits) but if you want a hint as to what I found to be the primary avenue for game-breaking power:
    mess around in the actual cabin some. There's an item you can eventually free that involves the set of statues. This'll get you a squirrel totem

    Then seek out the woodcutter on the map as often as possible

    Dead Cells is one of those games that I keep seeing and keep going "wait that came out right? these aren't early access updates, this game is complete, isn't it?"

    I wonder if these updates keep driving more sales or if they're just doing it for the love of the game or whatever

    yes, it's complete

    if that's the question

    iirc, the main group that made the game has moved on, but a few of them splintered off and are maintaining/updating the game for the foreseeable future. So it's very much love of the game

    Dead Cells has also had some paid updates to help fund things, which are absolutely worth it if you love the game.

    It's also interesting to me that while the original Dead Cells was developed by Motion Twin, which operated as worker's co-op that (if they are to be believed) has no bosses and pays everyone the same, the updates to Dead Cells from a certain point onward have been developed by Evil Empire, the spun-off company, which is not a worker's co-op.

    The interviews I've read make it sound like there are some good reasons for running Evil Empire under a familiar, capitalist model rather than as co-op, reasons that aren't directly related to making fat stacks of cash, buuuuuuuut also I'm curious where the slider between "love of the game" and "love of the money" sits.

    EDIT: To be clear, I'm dumb as a doorknob and don't know jack about shit, so it's entirely possible that Evil Empire is operated with only the purest of intentions.

    So I'm sure not many people besides me care about Leisure Suit Larry, but I'm playing through the reboot game that was released in 2018, and I'm pretty pleasantly surprised. It feels like a game made by people who understand what made the Larry games good - weird puzzles, stupid jokes, raunchy AND non-raunchy humor, but also some earnestness and naivete in Larry that makes him likeable. I think it does have some rough edges, and sometimes they have jokes about things that they shouldn't, but overall I'm pretty happy with it, especially in comparison to what those console games looked like back in the day.
