Konami skips out on E3 stating that due to “deep development on a number of key projects,” in the coming months. https://archive.vn/0VX8P Last Thread News Range from 03/22/2021 till 04/26/2021 https://archive.vn/SAF3h
Yeah, I'm sure those Pachinko machines will be worth the hype in E3 2023.
You think konami can actually pull out the MGS remake hayter mentioned and a new castlevania?
Either a Metal Gear Solid or Silent Hill remake by fucking Bluepoint.
>>298776 I doubt either, but Castlevania's the more likely of the two. Netflix cartoon's still going and they were willing to make a mobileshit of it earlier, Grimoire of Souls I think it was. But I doubt they have anyone who even remembers how to make a MGS game since the entire Kojimbo studio quit in solidarity with him (and those who remained to work on Survive only did so to call the Konami loyalists cowards and traitors), and I think they're still leery after Lords of Shadow. >>299020 Not anymore since the gambling laws got changed and all of a sudden their money-printers got fucked. Corona-chan hasn't helped either.
>>299076 If i was konami, id humble down and ask iga to give it a go again.
>>299049 People really don't like Bluepoint and I'm not fully sure why. >>299076 For the love of god, stop replying to TORfags.
>>299087 They feel the need to westernize and poz every ingle thing they touch
>>298763 bamco better reveal anything about klonoa encore.
>>299126 They changed a bunch of shit in the demon's souls remake such as doing race swaps, and heavily redesigned all the monsters and characters, with many of said redesigns contradicting aesthetic decisions made in the original. Beyond that I have heard it was off mechanically from the original, and was made easier in several places. There's an image collage that get's reposted all the time, but I don't have it saved.
>>298775 At least the new Erotic Bombergirl Pachinko machine will be fappable. Can you say that about any female in any Western or Capcom game?
>>299087 >he uses tor, so ignore everything he's saying That's retarded. Especially since it was a normal misunderstanding that Konami's pachinkos won't save them anymore.
>>299213 >Erotic Bombergirl Pachinko tell me more

>>299133 >>299126 Look upon my works, ye mighty, and despair
>>299087 >People really don't like Bluepoint and I'm not fully sure why. <PS3 remake of SotC "fixes" the game by permanently locking away content <PS4 remake of SotC has terrible graphics in comparison to the original on the PS2, with DLC for a game that didn't HAVE DLC <PS5 remake of Demon Souls fucks with the graphics, the gameplay, and the audio; see: >>299248
>>299263 >PS3 remake of SotC "fixes" the game by permanently locking away content What? How? This is the first time I am hearing about this.
>>299248 I get the guru mediation error when I try to open these in a new tab so I can actually read the fuckers
>>299340 On both of them?
>>299351 I can expand them in thread just fine but my mobile browser cant handle their resolution and fails to load, I think. I can download them directly from the thread, maybe, but not by expanding then saving image either
>>299086 I'd like a new Castlevania like everything. I've played the two 2D Bloodstained games, and while the aesthetic's nice and thegame physics fell like a classic Castlevania game, I'm just not digging this Ars Goetia plot that it has going on and the second game is a little wonky design wise. On the other hand Igavania games just don't get my engine running.
>>299076 >the entire Kojimbo studio quit in solidarity with him (and those who remained to work on Survive only did so to call the Konami loyalists cowards and traitors), Wait, seriously? Aren't jap devs supposed to be whipped by their superiors and big on politeness?
>>299076 >>299558 >the entire Kojimbo studio quit in solidarity with him (and those who remained to work on Survive only did so to call the Konami loyalists cowards and traitors) Only for all of them to fall into obscurity.
Wolfire Games Files Antitrust Lawsuit Against Steam; Accuses Valve of Preventing Better Deals on Other Stores https://archive.is/ZUj1S >Further, the lawsuit claims Valve reserves the right to deny keys (or revoke key requesting privileges) if they “disadvantage” Steam’s customers. The suit claims that their terms language is using the notion of protecting their customers as a “charade.” >“Those customers are the same ones that can (and do) purchase Steam Keys on other storefronts besides the Steam Store. They are harmed when they cannot find games for lower prices elsewhere because Valve has restrained price competition through its Price Parity Provision.” >“Moreover, Valve explicitly instructs publishers that Valve enforces this provision to ‘avoid a situation where customers get a worse offer on the Steam store.’ Put another way, Valve uses this restriction to prevent customers from getting a better deal anywhere other than on the Steam Store. Thus, rival distributors have no meaningful way to attract publisher customers and take away share from Valve, because their efforts to compete on price (e.g., by charging lower commissions) are blocked by Valve’s price parity requirements.” People in comments are saying the CEO of Wolfire Games is the brother of Humble Bundle, and Epic games and Tencent is behind this lawsuit
>>299585 >People in comments are saying the CEO of Wolfire Games is the brother of Humble Bundle, and Epic games and Tencent is behind this lawsuit Hope this is true, could start a good shit storm. I never trusted that Wolfire homo.
>>299585 Man imagine if Overgrowth was a finished game.
>>299585 It'd be nice if Valve had a serious threat to their existence. They might have to start taking things seriously again instead of coasting on Steam.
>>299585 This lawsuit wont go anywhere because the pricing restrictions only apply when the game actually runs through Steam. A publisher can decide to sell a game both on Steam and their own platform for a cheaper price, as long as the one on their own platform doesn't toss you a Steam key. >because their efforts to compete on price (e.g., by charging lower commissions) It also doesn't help that literally every game on both Epic and Steam is the same price, even the ones not using Steamworks. >>299591 I don't want to see Valve make games anymore. >TF2, CS:GO and Dota2 all just exist to milk whales >Artifact; the pay2play card game where you have to both pay up front and pay for the cards >Underlords, aka fucking auto chess >HL:A looks decent but its a fucking VR game If they'd make a new multiplayer game, it'd be the exact same fucking slop as the AAA cancer industry puts out. I'd rather see Valve continue pushing cancer stores like Epic and Microsoft out of the market.
>>299592 I played alyx and its pretty neat, its just a shame that the VR limits it as an FPS, but hey, it was obviusly something experimental.
>>299462 Maybe try the Deedlit game then? It's pretty good for a japindie gayme. >>299225 >No Bombergirl game beyond the pachinko shit >Thus no more new lewds or doujins beyond the usual pachinko-addicted artfags It hurts.
>>299585 It's hilarious that Wolfire games is trying to come off as the good guys in this scenario. They would have, if they were trying to argue that Valve and Steam don't actually let you own your games. But, as the other anons said, this is probably some kind of front by Epic and Tencent. Don't want to burn the house down while you're still in it, huh? >>299604 >It hurts. You could commision art, if you want them that bad.
>>299646 >>299604 If you want a bombergirl so bad just marry a muslim lol

>>299682 No kidding, I believe that Overgrowth buy also got you Lugaru and I believe Receiver. I had such foolish hopes for Overgrowth early on and what it is now isn't really much more than Lugaru was. I'm more peeved about NS2 being a mess initially and a flop more or less.
>>299682 Check the spoiler God I hope that picture is a joke
>>299683 >I'm more peeved about NS2 being a mess initially and a flop more or less. Yeah, RIP Natural Selection. I bought it on sale sometime after TotalBiscuit covered it. But to be fair, it was an asymmetrical real time strategy FPS hybrid, without a single player campaign, it was multiplayer only. In addition, RTS hybrids, except for Overlord and Pikmin, don't seem to get played a lot. Sacrifice sadly doesn't count. >>299688 I saw it, but I don't understand the slang very much. Is she saying the dog has a bigger peen?
>>299585 I can understand where they're coming from as Valve does take an astronomically high cut of sales, but I don't think this lawsuit will go anywhere. It sounds like a proxy suit on behalf of Humble and Epic
>>299585 What this https://archive.ph/wip/yqJ51 actually says is that you aren't allowed to provide a Steam key at a cheaper price on a different storefront, you're free to sell the game itself for whatever you want. I'm no fan of (((Valve))) but it's pretty disingenuous to claim they're controlling the price of the full product. More likely this is because modern indie developers are mostly retards who can't think beyond 'license Unity, make roguelite with a gimmick, add in Steam API' so they literally cannot conceive of selling a version of the game that's not inherently tied to a Steam key.

SEGA Is Moving Into NFTs and 'Sonic the Hedgehog' Fans are Not Happy https://archive.vn/fzxuf SEGA has just announced its expansion into NFTs and longtime fans are not happy about it. Earlier this week, the iconic Japanese video game company revealed its plans to move into the NFT space, teaming up with Double Jump. Tokyo to realize a “sequential expansion into a variety of content, including IPs currently in development and new IPs to be released in the future,” adding that it will “also explore ways to effectively utilize the NFT contents owned by users.” While other details remain scarce at this point, many fans have already expressed outrage at the company’s decision, highlighting the irony that it created Sonic the Hedgehog, a game based around a protagonist who fights for the environment. “This is the same company who made a specific game that’s all about preventing a mechanized and toxic wasteland,” said one fan. “This is just disappointing…Especially a Sonic fan like me.” Another chimed in: “When I was a kid, your flagship character taught me to care about the environment. It’s more than a little jarring to see that same face contributing to the destruction of the planet in a time like this.” SEGA has yet to make an official response to the backlash.
>>299736 I really do not understand NFTs. What stops people from ignoring that entire mess and just doing whatever they want like usual?
>>299744 Nothing is stopping anyone, it's completely meaningless and probably, likely just a money laundering scheme.
>>299745 Yeah, it must be. It all seems so strange.
>>299744 The best description I've heard of NFTs are beanie babies for techbros and investors.
>>299736 The fuck's an NFT?
>>299750 Good question. It's kind of a hard thing to explain, but it's basically a "token" claiming you own a specific copy of an image, game, etc. This probably sounds worthless, and it is! It's a big fad at the moment and I'm not sure why people are buying them. Edward Snowden recently sold one for over $5,000,000.
>>299753 Is he even allowed to? What else is he doing these days?
>>299756 Hanging out in Russia.
>>299604 1. Bombergirl had games beyond pachinko? 2. They make doujins of pachinko games of all thngs?!
>>299744 NFTs are basically a bitcoin/crypto with a serial number to make them unique. They are assigned to a digital good and have a proof of ownership of the thing they're associated with on the transaction ledger. There's only value to it because people think it has value

>>299769 >2. They make doujins of pachinko games of all thngs?! Bless Great Mosu. The first one to really make content about it.
>>299736 >all those tree hugging mentally ill soyfreaks whining about a company wanting money above everything else Indeed, brand loyalists are clinically insane. There people who still think that a smilling mascot from a company somehow makes the company friendly. Jewtendo also has a lot of practices in the manufacturing of it's products that end up resulting in toxic waste, yet idiots still think that it is a friendly company because they see Mario smiling at them.
>>299756 I don't see why he wouldn't be, the US government doesn't have jurisdiction over international crypto/art sales. >What else is he doing these days? Still lives in Russia, he got residency last year. He writes books and does a lot of interviews, usually about how corrupt alphabet agencies are and corporate data collection went too far fifteen years ago. I don't like Joe Rogan but he did this great segment on JRE in 2019 titled "How Your Cell Phone Spies on You".
>>299769 Bombergirl is an arcade game, not pachinko.
>>299263 The PS4 remaster had cringeworthy OC donut steel shit as well, like the new easter egg that pretty much fellates that one youtube spic who dedicated his whole life to researching prototype builds of SOTC (which by the way was all bullshit, as proven by https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaYW7Bs1OTvllV9Q1XvXEdQ, the arena that supposedly held the devil and was located right next to the unused dam was actually in front of the shrine of worship) >>299280 Yeah, what content did it supposedly remove? Because recently people have started datamining the PS3 and PS4 remasters and they've found that the PS3 one actually still has a shit ton of leftover data and assets that confirm a lot of theories people had for years (like the unused colossi arenas), meaning bluepoint used a build older than even the prerelease PS2 ones.
>>299780 Why does Joe Rogan lust after chimps so much?
>>300028 Weed.
>>299753 How can there be a specific copy if it's a public domain digital data in the first place?

>>300051 Didn't know this was still being made. I thought Nintendo gave it a C&D.
>>300053 Nintendo sent a C&D to the creator's Kickstarter, and the remake project went silent for years until the creator announced that he would continue with the remake and the first episode of the remaster was uploaded one year ago.

>>300147 Telling everyone you want money for a project based on some company's property is the fastest way to get shit on by lawyers.

>>299744 I also don't think I understand it but I think that's because every time I read what it is about I conclude that I must be misunderstanding because it's too fucking stupid and no one could possibly fall for a scheme like this. Basically it's like an artist doing a drawing and distributing it everywhere freely and then also selling just one person a piece of paper that says that person now own the drawing they did. The difference is that NFTs are digital so it's basically like a digital signature from the creator (or a global megacorp in this case) saying that you own it now, so there isn't even that personal touch that a real signature from an artist you like could have. It's literally greed, there's nothing else behind this. >>299753 >Edward Snowden recently sold one for over $5,000,000. Are you shitting me? What the actual fuck. >>300050 They're not selling the image itself but rather the rights of it or something like that. I'm not really sure if this really has legal value though.
>>300147 >Begging for money in an obvious legal arena for an illegal fan project (read: You are not allowed to make money off of copyright) >Needing e-attention at all for your projects This is why so many artists fuck up in this day & age.

>>300267 Wasn't this game very mediocre?
>>299770 >>299753 What I don't get is, why are they bad for the environment?
>>300874 Verifying transactions in the blockchain takes a ton of processing power, thus electricity
>>299744 Because it's another shell in the shell game/ponzi scheme of crypto. Because they have a real environmental cost involved with transactions, like other crypto, and people are appalled that this meta market has sprung up demanding it's own power plants, etc. Crypto broadly has failed to provide anonymous banking as it was intended and largely failed to provide a currency for the 'unbanked'. Attempts to give it a practical purpose such as file storage or as an app layer are merely curios and the world has demonstrated no demand for them.

>>301679 >original story by mia author >actually on PC too Looking forward to it. There's plenty of things cut from MiA when it had its slump before 7chi. The two new characters in pic1 being essentially a palette swap makes me wonder whether we'll get any character creation or customization, and pic2 shows we'll at least be playing a new character. Sadly the game looks a bit cheap. The foliage on the wall literally blending into the stone in pic2 isn't helping with that. I wonder if they didn't put out any video because the animation quality is currently ass too.
>>301679 You forgot to mention it's also rated Cero Z in Japan, which is the equivalent of 18+ and adult rating. This also could explain why the game will be released worldwide right off the bat because they want to get profits (Z-rated stuff so far have been for some visual novels on consoles, localized western games and recently the Z versions of Biohazard which still remain well censored compared to the normal western versions)

>>301863 The basic plot is "let's send a dumb loli and an amnesic shotabot to the bottom of a deeeeeeeeeep abyss that is full extremely dangerous creatures that can digest you before actually eating you and even more dangerous lunatic explorers that want to turn you into a lunchbox and then make you crossdress just for the sake of it, also the abyss has some weird shit that makes you bleed from every orifice if you try to go up and sometimes even worse things, so you can only go down where things are more fucked up, also here's a smug bunny-like thing that has PTSD but at least knows some things about the abyss, gg", which combined the blatant fetish fuel and violence featuring children at seemingly random moments becomes a huge shock bomb for normalfags who came for the extremely cute art style of the manga/anime. That aside, the manga is really good. The art style is great, specially regarding the scenery and living creatures (this is one of the reasons many people wanted a MiA game, imagine exploring pics related), and the cuteness of the characters and their interactions make you care deeply for them every time they are in danger. Another thing is that you can see how being in the abyss constantly exposed to dangers and trauma changes the characters, not only the protagonists, but everyone who went down there. The part about the author being a degenerate loli/shotacon is true, though. Even his own mother calls him "irremediable" during streams, and he has admitted that Reg (the shotabot)'s design is partially inspired by Astroboy's "defenseless body".

>>302207 Isn't there a host of issues when buying through steam? Either way it's a fucking joke of a game based on these facts alone.
>>302209 It is fun, with a decent plot at least past ARR. And no, you just get the codes and you have to register them with a square account. My only real issue with the game is dungeon mobs are pretty dull, but the boss fights are USUALLY past the base game.
>>302197 Not even that. Most of the time, uncredited "assistants" are the ones who truly create the characters, the overall art for the scenery, write the plot, and pretty much do everything. The "creator" is usually just some introvert degenerate that can just barely draw some characters, and who is also a pushover that the studio's boss use as a front for everyone else involved. If something goes wrong, the "creator" is blamed for everything, while the actual creators and artists with actual talent are kept around, to work on the next title, with another introvert degenerate.
>>302223 That's not how goes usually with manga anon. Unless you information that says otherwise.

Also a boy forced to crossdress, anal probing and penis measuring, furry TF shit and some other stuff I likely forgot. The art and particularly the music are good but otherwise its just packaging up an existing idea with standard Japanese pathos for ignorant nips and weebs to hold up as something original, like Little Witch Academia and Harry Potter which itself was a very close rip-off of an existing series of books about a witch-only school but that's a different topic.

>>302388 It should be noted the report is only for the first quarter, I can see the bulk of Switch sales due of Monster Hunter Rise be more apparent in the next report, that with the new Pokemon Snap game which will make a pretty hefty Q2 compared to this. The fact the console is about to sell even better in its 4th-5th year instead of losing steam (like it happened to the Wii) is rather impressive too. It's pretty obvious at this point the Switch is gonna reach PS2-tier numbers in terms of lifetime sales. It's also the 5th best-selling console in Japan, just about to dethrone the PS2 and 3DS there. You can also notice the evolution of the Playstation/Nintendo game softwares over the years, with now the Switch dominating the market in the weekly Famitsu Top 30 charts (very often 28-29 Switch games taking position).

And in other Sony-related news: Sony Sued for Limiting Purchases of Games to PlayStation Store >Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC is operating an unlawful monopoly by restricting purchases of PlayStation games to its inhouse store, consumers claimed in a lawsuit. >In a proposed class action suit, the gamers said Sony stopped allowing third-party retailers -- including Amazon.com Inc., Best Buy Co. and Walmart Inc. -- to sell download codes for PlayStation games two years ago. >As a result, Sony’s PlayStation Store became the only source for digital PlayStation games, the consumers said. >“Sony’s monopoly allows it to charge supracompetitive prices for digital PlayStation games, which are significantly higher than their physical counterparts sold in a competitive retail market, and significantly higher than they would be in a competitive retail market for digital games,” the consumers said. >People end up paying as much as 175% more for downloadable games than the same ones on disk, according to the suit. >Sony didn’t return a request for comment after hours Wednesday. >The case is Caccuri v.

>>302560 Yep. For stuff that's only available in a certain region's eshop, you can make a separate Switch user account and set the account's region to Japan. Or if you want everything under one account you can contact customer support and ask for your account region to be changed, though IIRC they can't do it if you have any money in your eshop account because they don't do currency conversions. Then when you're done ask to be switched back. Though the last time they did this they said it wasn't something they do regularly and basically don't do it too much. >>302562 I wonder if Nintendo gets around this because they sell those cards that have eshop codes on them in retail stores for their first party eshop only stuff, and DLC for things like BOTW and XC2 Torna.

Wolfire Games (Overgrowth dev) to do a class action lawsuit against Valve http://blog.wolfire.com/2021/05/Regarding-the-Valve-class-action https://archive.is/4qmgq >I decided that I would provide my game "Overgrowth" at a lower price to take advantage of the lower commission rates. I intended to write a blog post about the results. >But when I asked Valve about this plan, they replied that they would remove Overgrowth from Steam if I allowed it to be sold at a lower price anywhere, even from my own website without Steam keys and without Steam’s DRM. This would make it impossible for me, or any game developer, to determine whether or not Steam is earning their commission. >While talking to other developers about problems that they were having with Steam, they kept referring to it as a "monopoly," and saying that there was nothing that we could do. I wondered, has anyone actually checked if Valve is obeying antitrust law? So I consulted with legal experts, which eventually culminated in the complaint.
>>302841 Godspeed, furfag. That does make me wonder, are non-steam specific sales not kosher either? What about store-exclusive pre-order bonuses, etc.?
>>302870 It's bullshit, otherwise games wouldn't be on both GOG and Steam with different sales at different times.
>>302873 Yeah, that's what I figured. I assume EGS, Ubishit,etc. have separate sales for their own games on their stores too. If cases, as was described, do happen then It likely only happens to the little guys.

>>302968 It's a funny thing. Valve is probably the laziest, shittiest, most pozzed and incompetent developer who shits all over their communities. But also they are the most logical, "based" devs with a long history of supporting their community. I'd rather have valve then epic or humble cause fuck both of them atleast valve allows me to say the Nword in their games freely. But also fuck them for abandoning tf2 and fuck them for being lazy shits. but i love them for supporting linux and giving microsoft the boot But also fuck them for all their anti-consumer shit such as forcing price schemes on companies outside their platform and sending c&d's to serverhosts with the "free items" source plugin. but i'm also happy they are the one platform that doesn't use sketchy rootkits in their games and they have a nice level of transparency with the metrics they use as well as straight up telling you when a game is using shitty anti-cheat/drm Valve is weird. I like them, i hate them, i despise them, i wish they'd fail, and i wish they'd succeed. they do innovative things that are amazing from time to time but alot of the time they just shit the bed. And yet somehow with how absolutely shit their internal structure is and how lazy they've been with releasing shit and support. They are somehow fucking a million times better then their competition. I hope they get fucked for doing anti-consumer shit but i hope it's not too hard to the point where they stop being a "monopoly" cause funnily enough valve's monopoly status is one of the main reasons they are able to give microsoft the spooks and support linux as heavily as they do. Valve is 100% capable of pushing linux to the point where it'd be the number one platform for video games if they went under i'm almost half certain we'd be stuck in chink/microshaft purgatory.
>>302976 Right now, realistically, the only parties that can sit and talk this are the pirates, because the only people they pay are their IP and VPN proxy services. Every other venue and gaming option that's not straight up 1:1 independent developed and produced is outright cancer, waiting to infect the mind of millions. But the ultimate sad truth is that there really is no winning strategy, here. Praying for their downfall only means scavengers come along, steal the scraps, and build something far worse, and far more heinous. Any of these big platforms can fail tomorrow and all it will mean is cowards and opportunists will scramble to fill the void with their shittier knockoffs, and build a brutal counter defense to whatever issue took down the super giant to begin with. So no I won't cheer for this faggot. He's not doing it for the little guy—he's doing it for a payday and a pole position. ANd no I won't cheer Valve crushing him or cowtowing to him, because it means shitty clouds for us in the future who help keep this shit ship afloat.

>>303098 >He's doing this because Valve isn't letting devs sell their games for less on Epic. Valve doesn't let you sell your games for less on any platform (including your own website), allegedly. That being said, I didn't know about the Humble/Epic connection before so that does explain a few things. I've also looked into the actual case and it seems a little weak. They mainly allege that Valve has a monopoly in the PC games market, that it acquired and maintains that monopoly willfully and that it abuses their monopolistic power. If true, they would be in violation of both sections of the Sherman act. The document feels a little lacking in credible, non-biased sources to back those claims up however. I don't think Tim Sweeney tweets, context-less quotes and the fucking ADL are a solid foundation for a case. Of course, they're likely holding key evidence for the actual trial (at least I hope for their sake). There's something else that is being alleged that I'm not sure about. Firstly, they claim that the Steam store and Platform (game library, workshop, etc.) are two separate entities. They also claim that Valve mandates that most of the Steam enabled game sales must go through the Steam store because every Steam enabled game must be included in the store and devs can't request (large amounts of) keys to sell on other sites at a lower price. I'm not sure if that is in any way illegal, I'll be interested in seeing where this goes but it seems meager.
>>303131 He was indeed an anti-GG SJW nigger, one of the earliest faggot devs to jump on the "GG is about harassing womyn!" train.

>>302894 >LUPUS That's Lepus. Lupus is wolf.
>>303136 I don't see how Valve could have a monopoly. Devs and publishers are not required to sell games through Steam, but if they do there is a contract in place with the typical "don't undercut us" clause that all businesses have. There are plenty of games that do well without Steam. I mean fuck, the biggest game in the world, Minecraft, could only be bought directly from the game's website for how long? The reason Steam is successful is not because there's a forced monopoly. No, the reason Steam is successful is because of all these fucking dumpster fire digital storefronts and voice-chat-friend-list-achievement-integration systems, fucking Steam has the best user experience and customer support. Fucking Steam. That's not a low bar to clear and neither Epic nor GOG nor EA nor Ubisoft could clear it. These people do not have our best interests at heart. Like SJWs and their ilk, it's not about justice or equality, they just want their turn holding the whip.
>>302841 >sign contract >have regrets >"this must be illegal" Regardless of his claims, nobody forced him to sell his game on Steam and if all that happens when Valve gets mad is they won't sell the game anymore, isn't that what he wants anyways? To sell the game elsewhere? Exactly how is this going to be taken seriously in court?
>>303172 Contract law is a farce and so are you for defending it. Real men simply do what must be done.
>>303172 So you're saying that Valve got #MeToo'd
>>303141 >With switch being so successful I'm surprised neither Xbox nor Ps5 is launching any portable device with a dock. Their Game Pass/PS Now services that let you play games are like more Jewish versions of the Switch not only because you have to constantly pay a subscription instead of making a single payment for a product, but because ultimately you don't own anything by using it. So instead of selling a $300 low-end tablet with controls and $60 games they're selling a service that lets you play a selection of their games in your regular tablet, phone, laptop, etc, which is more profitable for them (MS and Sony) since they don't have to spend money designing, manufacturing and distributing consoles, only pay the maintenance of servers they already own.

>>303172 <Regardless of his claims, nobody forced him to sell his game on Steam >Defending contract jewry Like you know what he's dealing with, correct? Not everyone has a team of lawyers to suss out a contract for "fuck you" clauses. A lot of what's done in contract work should be illegal (we own your creative property and you have no say whatsoever copyright bullshit and other clauses) and you sincerely should not defend anything done on that level, the only effort you should take is to fight against anything that comes from it that's negative in the slightest, even to the point of hypocrisy. Given that contracts are built off of deception in most cases, honor has no place and defence is immoral. Lawyers understand this themselves which is why the "good" ones (If there is any good one) fight with tooth and nail using every deceptive practice in the book. You sincerely don't understand the depths of depravity of business culture. They have no reason to act morally and they have too much power to actually be defended like you would a victim. Even in the case where they are the victim they deserve absolutely no mercy when against an individual and the goal you should have when two corparations fight is to ensure both of them burn. This isn't even out of hatred either, because a quality business is not formed by supporting it or defending it, a quality business that works for the people can only be forged with extreme resistance to weed out the weak and immoral. tl;dr =Defending any corporation is suicide.==

>>304266 Half true. An individual entering into a contract with anything other than another individual generally has no negotiating power. The individual gets offered a small selection of shitty contracts that they can take or leave; if they leave, they have to go find another provider of whatever it is, who will also offer them a small selection of shitty contracts. You can't do that too many times with something like, say, a utility before running out of options.

I don't know if any of you faggots noticed but the sequel for Judgement has been announced recently with a 3rd style and some Asscreed faggotry like climbing and parkour. The upside is that you can explore a highschool and over-world has other means of traversal such as the skateboard and the aforementioned parkour. https://yewtu.be/watch?v=FWBIGVew6Yo
>>306702 Yeah, I also saw that they apparently want to keep the rpg format in the main series and only the spinoffs will be the action fighting games. It is clear they are tired of doing the same game, but then stop making them instead of making a hundred more. https://archive.vn/35jkn >>306702

Epic vs Apple : Week 1 review - Epic still faces an "uphill battle" https://archive.ph/S2a5c >"Where Epic describes the iOS and App Store as 'the plan' to lure in developers and users alike with conveniences and other benefits before locking them into their 'walled garden', Apple, of course, frames the exact same behaviour as offering benefits and opportunity to consumer and developer alike," he says. <"At times, it seems like Apple's counsel have been helping Epic up that hill." >"Apple slinging mud [at Epic] and getting it all over themselves in the process." <"I don't know what Apple's lawyer was thinking," says Buscaglia. "But they sure missed making any points with this lame argument and lost credibility in the process. It also shows that Judge Rogers is sharp and not moved by bad arguments or impressed by sloppy 'gotcha' questions." >"If 'a hardware manufacturer that controls access to the software that runs the hardware' is a monopolist by law, then ALL of the console manufacturers might have problems" >"If you think of a game or app, games are incredibly dynamic," he said. "Games have a beginning and end, there's challenges in place. I look at the experiences that are in Roblox similar to the experiences in Minecraft." <For Buscaglia, this was "some of the dumbest testimony" so far, adding: "Their definition of what a game is was laughable in today's world, trying to distinguish 'games' from 'experiences'. A big shitshow of a legal battle - people Epic, Apple, Microsoft, Sony, Stadia?, itch.io, Google all called up for witness, Since trial was open for view, children started singing "Free Fortnite" and shit, Lots of confidential legal documents were uncovered like epic games is still on loss and expected till 2023. Gonna need more people's opinion on this since I can't understand all of this.
>>307518 i have been out of the loop for sometime now WTF is all this hsit about?
>>307552 If I remember correctly, Epic did not like that Apple takes a cut from digital currency sales for games from the Apple Store, so Epic tried to skirt around it by selling shit for the Apple version outside the store and got slapped. So they threw a fit and decided to sue Apple for "muh monopoly" bullshit like how they claim Steam is one.
>>307581 wait wait wait, i think im retarded and im getting this wrong. epic didnt like tha apple was making money on the apple store by selling games so did they try to sue them?
>>307617 No, Epic got upset that when people buy e-money for (((Free to Play))) games on the Apple Store, Apple gets a cut of that instead of 100% going to Epic, so Epic tried to skirt around this and Apple slapped them which led to this lawsuit.
>>307518 >children started singing "Free Fortnite" Literally and unironically burn those children alive.

Fun rumour: New Donkey Kong 3D platformer from Super Mario Odyssey dev team Honestly not sure how to feel about this, but it would explain the lack of a follow-up to Odyssey (I was really hoping for some post-launch content like Isle Delfino or something), and because Retro is busy remaking Metroid Prime 4 after Bamco botched it. https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2021/05/rumour_the_next_donkey_kong_is_being_developed_by_the_super_mario_odyssey_team And still Archive.is has me on the fucking infinite captcha I swear this is bullshit.

Japan's weekly sales chart released: Sony gets three titles into the top ten, and all three combined don't sell more than the #1 Switch title: Pokemon Snap. And the second-best selling game, Monster Hunter Rise which is already a month old, sold more than RE8 on both PS4 and PS5 combined in it's debut week. Sony is truly fucked in Japan. https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2021/05/japanese_charts_new_pokemon_snaps_off_to_a_good_start_but_resident_evil_village_is_a_major_threat
>>307552 >>307581 Summary of lawsuit. Apple offers apps in its stores. Apple gets 15% of the revenue from sales of these apps as payment for dev tools, hardware development, hosting the store in the first place, and distribution, etc. These apps can have in-app purchases for subscriptions and microtransactions. Those in-app purchases are also subject to the 15% cut for Apple. Epic didn't like that, so they redirected users, within the app itself, to a separate "external" link that bypassed Apple's payment system so that they didn't have to give up the 15% cut. This is against the ToS for hosting an app in the App Store. Apple is COMPLETELY FINE with a company offering its in-app purchases and subscriptions through their own separate services (and obviously doesn't take a cut from that). Netflix, for example, can be subscribed to either on Netflix.com (and you log in through the app), or you can subscribe to Netflix directly in the app itself (where Apple gets a cut). Apple is NOT fine with developers bypassing its software system for handling transactions, so they kicked Epic out of the App Store for doing this. Epic then actively pulled playback support for its apps on Apple's platforms (until then, the apps still worked fine as long as you had downloaded them already) and sued Apple for discrimination. Summary of lawsuit ends. That's what happened, physically. The discussion is whether Apple has the legal capability to do this, as well as on other topics, such as the acceptable extent of the "walled garden" approach to security, stability, and protection of user content against predatory business tracking. Never mind any double standards held in software deals regarding Apple (and other companies) and Epic (and other companies).

>>308944 You know what? I can't say I'm surprised, judging by the kinds of games that were getting released on console in Japan for years this seems like a natural progression of it.
>>308906 "Loophole Legalized Gambling" and there's this sad notion on Japanese adults that the only "mature" gaming platform for them is fucking Pachinko Machines.
>>309002 Gambling was legalized in Japan awhile ago.
>>309006 And that basically killed Konami's chance at using pachinko machines to make up for profits that their former gaming division use to bring in.
>>309006 You can't kill something that's been going on for decades overnight, people are still going for pachinko shit, much like some oddities like goddamn companies are still backwards as shit with some still using Fax machines there.
>>309060 I was going to comment on that, but I don't know enough about the situation. Ever since Kojima left I haven't heard much about Konami at all, actually. >>309066 But that's not my point? You said "Loophole Legalized Gambling", I was clarifying it was since legalized.
>>302976 I hate to say this but I agree.
>>308666 It's even worse than it looks. Nips had lockdowns too, they needed more at-home entertainment too, and they still didn't buy PS5 games. Without chinkflu, there'll be even less sales.
>>308944 >the number of Japanese gamers who actually sit down and play on a Console is getting smaller and smaller, Phone games have taken a huge part of the audience away. It is really amazing how hard, and successfully I might add, that people have managed to push this narrative. The only consistent downwards trend we've seen in Japan is the Playstation's one, not home consoles. Nintendo had its ups and downs but with major smash hits in-between. Playstation on the other hand has only performed worse and worse. Xbox never really had much of a foot in the market, and the X360 really left a bad taste in the mouth as the "beta-testing machine" with the majority of japanese games that had a superior version on PS3 (Tales of Vesperia being the bigger example out of this). If Sony managed to provide a PS2-tier Playstation generation, with various kind of japanese games (which the Switch currently gets them in droves), it'd be a a big success in Japan even if it was just a home console. Nothing has suggested the concept of home consoles ever lost their appeal in Japan. It's just that Playstation used to dominate that market but has been losing its appeal along the way. SIE could attempt to address that but the company clearly doesn't appear to be that willing to do so. In fact, SIE has been aggressively hostile against the japanese market instead between the forced lazy X/O button globalization, the poor amount of PS5s in stock, the censorship against third-parties, etc.
>>309006 >Gambling was legalized in Japan awhile ago. So that's why gangsters started going apeshit and Konami started trying to put out games again. >>309230 > they needed more at-home entertainment too But they got tons of dvds already and their Switches. >>309256 The only thing phone games have killed is quality handhelds and quality handheld games. Nintendo has somehow managed to survive but it's almost a wonder considering how shit the 3DS was before the New3DS I mean the console, not the games
>>309258 >I mean the console, not the games But anon the sum of the console's worth is it's games.
>>309259 Sure thing but there are times when the hardware is kinda shit and needs an update. Unless you want to tell me that getting YLOD'd with the fat PS3 or fucking up your buttons on the PSP1000 and having slower loadtimes + slowdowns was worth it compared to the 2000 and 3000. Some games would almost be crippled from that I'm not even going to talk about how my PSP1000 was smelling of burnt iron and plastic when I tried playing Kingdom Cucks Girth by Sleep on it, compared to my 3000 where I could push it to the limits the options had
>>306073 >This can't entirely be because of scalpers, is China really cucking their supply line this hard? Yes they are. >>306062 This anon speaks truth.
>>306073 >>309262 More like chip production has always been hard to scale up, which combined with corona driving demand for consumer electronics caused a backlog that's very hard to clear. It's gotten to the point that various lower-tech products like cars are having a hard time even getting a slot for production.
>>309265 Correct me if I'm wrong, but most of the small Asian countries house the major materials for chip production since the US and other countries would rather slave labor put their shit together than actually have a properly priced & competitive market? And is not China right now positioning itself to basically swallow every asian country that's not Japan whole?
>>309267 >most of the small Asian countries house the major materials for chip production The current production shortage isn't caused by a material shortage. >other countries would rather slave labor put their shit together Chips aren't something you produce on cheap labor. Intel had issues in the last few years performing a die shrink with decent yields to the point that they're actually considering moving their production to TMSC in Taiwan. >And is not China right now positioning itself to basically swallow every asian country that's not Japan whole? I'm talking specifically on the current shortage. China has definitely been doing fuckery for years now, I'm not denying that. I just don't see how they would be the cause of the current shortage.
>>309276 Gotcha. I get I'm probably jumping a gun, here. Honestly I don't have any intricate intel aside of China is attempting to mobilize to revive the old empire format.

China to this day insists Taiwan is their province whilst Taiwan continues to tell them to fuck off. If they can't even get "their" province to listen, how the hell would they conquer anything? Why do you think "TAIWAN NUMBA ONE" triggers the nationalist Chinese so hard? It's a reminder of how spineless their own government is.

See also the last year in action & how quickly many so-called leaders act to capitulatte instead of countering because their self advantage comes before even the most basic aspect of their actual position. All bullshit aside, China is actually a viable global threat.
>>309287 >Why do you think "TAIWAN NUMBA ONE" triggers the nationalist Chinese so hard? It's a reminder of how spineless their own government is. China knows it can always win skirmishes and can never win wars. That's because its people are willing to give up resources for national pride only when profitable but will never be willing to sacrifice non-profitignly for a fellow bug preventing them from succeeding in any long-term conflict. Chinks will never value their country as anything other than profit (economically and in power projection) it brings to them.

>Ahead of the Battlefield 6 reveal, rumors are beginning to spark with some suggesting that a campaign mode might be missing from the game >It's critical to remember that the global pandemic could result in hurried development for Battlefield 6, which could very well explain the alleged absence of a campaign mode. Henderson pointed out that it's odd for EA not to have mentioned a campaign in its latest earnings call where it spoke about multiple aspects for the upcoming game. "I had a look back at the past EA earnings calls, but this is the first earnings call where EA has not mentioned a campaign coming to this year's Battlefield," Henderson stated >Despite the lack of news, Henderson also stated, "As I've mentioned for the past couple of months, I'm yet to hear of a campaign. It doesn't mean there isn't one, but it's very, very unusual to not hear of one in an info dump." It's important to remember that this doesn't come as confirmation, as it's only speculation for now. Besides, it could be that EA is waiting for the reveal to showcase its story trailer and generate as much hype as it can from advertising for Battlefield 6 >Worth mentioning is that EA also hasn't said anything about a battle royale mode either, but many rumors indicate that one will make its way to Battlefield 6. Nevertheless, on the other side of the FPS genre, the upcoming Call of Duty is also surrounded by rumors about a lack of multiplayer mode. Still, Activision hasn't made any official statements acknowledging this rumor. All is this is to say that rumors generally run wild when it comes to two of the biggest FPS games in the industry, so take these rumors with a grain of salt https://archive.is/TeMli
