"unexpected"



Nobody got eyeballs when you tested this?

Fuck off with that shit.

GSG will probably just remove the rain weather system.

As an aside, hopefully it isn't actually GSG doing the fixes and Rockstar just fixes it themselves. I have less than zero faith in GSG, and if anything they would probably just make everything worse.

This trend of releasing downright broken games and fixing it later on is getting out of hand. These guys are AAA developers with huge amount of budget and resources for fuck sake, not AA or indie developer with limited budget.

99% of the problems with the DE edition is because they ported not the ps2,xbox or pc version of the game the ones with bugs but not as crazy no they ported the mobile version of the game and slapped UE4 on it and called it a day half of the problems people have like not being able to 100% the game is because the mobile version launched with all of those problems.

On ps4/5 there are ports of all 3 games. Console users get shafted constantly for some reason. We routinely have to pay for ports that are given ut free to previous owners of the original games on PC. Why do we have to pay if we payed for the game, same $ as PC? The reason is because they cam get away with it knowing that there is such a large percentage of casuals who won't complain the way PC crowd will, I guess. Huge double standard!

We have to pay a yearly fee just to play games online for what should be free. Why is there no tier for people who don't want the shitty ps + or xbox gold monthly games and just want to play the games WE bought online? Charge $10 at most for that tier and keep your monthly "free games". Again, they do it because they know we have NO CHOICE and they havnt gotten any real bad press among the corrupt games media for it so they can get away with it.

Another one? The "refund policies" on consoles we all know how bad those are. On PC you can try before you buy and getting a refund is a click away. On Playstation they make you jump through hoops to just ask for a refund before denying it anyway.
PC players have to deal with a lot of shit too my friend. There are pros and cons for both PC and console gaming. That's why, if you can afford it. Get on both so that you don't always have to deal with be shafted by one platform that you're on.

But going back to what I was saying before. Sure, they could have given away the PS2 classics for free (I'm not sure if you can buy the OG Xbox games for XB1)

However, the Switch users still get screwed over as they don't have anything else. The only other Rockstar game that they've gotten was a decent port of L.A. Noire lol

Your absolutely right, my bad. I don’t know why I thought he left years ago. That means he should be producing it then. I hope the two of them had conjured up some ideas on a story premise before Dan left.

Wouldn’t count on that. I suspect Dan left because he can no longer do what he wants with the narrative. Or he is just burnt out and rdr2 was the final thing he wanted to achieve on such a scale.

Imagine actually caring, testing and put at least some effort into developing a game. Crazy, huh?

Fuck you Rockstar, never again.

"

This trash is months away from beeing definitive. Fuck that IT will never be definitive as long as the complete soundtrack is not restored.

About license issues I understand that even If you pay the money some people don't their Songs in the game. But they went the cheapest way possible. They just removed the songs and don't even bother to replace the songs with other songs.
What could be done easily.

I have been emulating gta 3 on my series S and it's bringing tears to my eyes, it's that great. The game means so much more when it has all those funky PS2 visual artifacts, blurs and stuff.

so you know this means nothing to me.

The amount of vitriol in this thread is surprising even to me and I’ve been around some. Let’s hope the updates and fixes will be able to address most of the problems so we can get on with our lives. People are calling this the worst video game release ever, I’m curious to know what those people are smoking.

I know the recent patch did not adress performance issues.

They reduced the rain density but there are still issues with the rain.

Lmao this game was literally developed by a mobile studio with a tiny budget.

So fuck the team that’s making GTA 6, who did not decide to make this, who had no part in its development, and who had the game they actually made pulled from the store with absolutely no input from them? What?

They shouldn't have given it to such a shitty studio to begin with. Bad decision that's on them, too. Them fighting their own community in making the older games playable to this day with mods. What?
If you are a true fan of these games, you should be even more pissed off at R* than I am for treating you with this bullshit of an excuse, rofl.

The people actually making gta 6 had absolutely no control or input on that decision.

So R* did the same thing as Konami did with Silent Hill? Give their well loved IP to unknown devs to make remaster/remake for it.

that’s somehow even worst.

Thats very stupid thing to do for R* and my original point still stand. They giant ass studio with huge amount of resources, they could done the remake/remaster themselves or give it to better studio with reasonable budget but instead they went same route as Konami.

It’s wasn’t the developers decision, it was the publishing side.

I'm glad that i bought the PS2 classics for PS4 while they were still available. I've been playing emulated GTA III and it's been good. The OG controls still suck but I guess I'll take the original bad controls over everything else sucking.

Currently there's no need for a new DF video.

Performance and frame times are still shit.
