Thread [Jason Schreier] EA has cancelled Gaia, the new IP that the Motive studio had been developing for more than five years
My heart goes out to the Dev team. Years of your life goes into something (let alone five) and POOF! Gone. From my own experience, it is absolutely SOUL CRUSHING.

Thread Costco, the nation's second-largest retailer, announces that it's adopting a $16 minimum wage for its 180,000 workers next week.
My seven years of employment at Costco ended when I got into the games industry many moons ago. I have nothing but GREAT things to say about Costco. No joke. Such a great place.

Thread Fact-Check: Can a PS5 and PS4 use the Same Account at the Same Time? (Article Source: TheGamer)
Maybe I should delete my post that you quoted because on Nov 15th I figured out (and posted) it was my auto login that was messing everything up.

I figured it out! The PS4 was set to auto log in onto my account. Turned that off, have the ability to choose which account to sign in on boot up and all is gravy! Sorry about any confusion my past posts caused.

Thread Fact-Check: Can a PS5 and PS4 use the Same Account at the Same Time? (Article Source: TheGamer)
It doesn't work when trying the same game at the same time. Fall Guys was booted up on the PS5 in the living room and my son was trying to boot it on his (family) account on the PS4 in the guest room. It would kick off the other person off saying "I signed on onto another console" or something like that. Oh well.

The team is thrilled with the reactions of the trailer so far! While the trailer doesn't show gameplay, it does reveal the gamut of different personalities the party will consist of. My lips are sealed however, so I'm not answering any questions. Just wanted to chime in and say, early 2021 is just around the corner and we can't wait to share more info soon™!

Thread After playing Darksiders 2 and darksiders genesis, I'm convinced these are the best playing character action games from a western developer
Glad you enjoyed DS:G! It was probably the most rewarding game that I have been a part of (even though I came onboard mid dev cycle). I know I am biased, but I find all aspects of it (art, gameplay, boss fights, voice work, soundtrack) are all top notch. And while we couldn't please everyone who had played previous entries, I do think as a whole, people had a good experience with it. Cheers!

Thread Darksiders Genesis is now released on Xbox, Playstation & Switch
Performance on base PS4 is ok. All consoles target 30fps, but there will be dips from time to time (sorry). As for downtime, IMO I don't think the creature core system causes too much downtime. Equipment management is basically non existent since this isnt a loot game. Is the game perfect? Naw, there is still issues here and there. BUT I think the positives out way the negatives. I am biased, but It is pretty easy to get a handle on things / systems. As for multiplayer, I enjoy playing co-op with my son who is seven. You can always read / view a review from an media outlet you align with and make the decision afterwards. For $16 I think its worth it, warts and all. Hope that helps.

It is out of our hands sadly :( ALL CONSOLE PATCHES are still coming... we just don't know WHEN that day will come. We submitted all console patches in early / mid March and are just waiting for cert. Unfortunately, with everything going on in the world, it is taking way longer for our patch to go through the process(??). Even I check my PS4 daily to see if the DS:G patch has gone live but always leave saddened. I'm sorry for the long delay and stay safe out there Dash Kappei / y'all.

Thread How are Game Developers making games, updates?
We have a very relaxed work environment. At any given time, a number of us WFH for a variety of reasons (sick kid, school's out, other kid gets sick, vet visit, first kid gets sick again, etc). So the current climate hasn't been a huge impact on me personally. I do feel bad for the people who live alone (my fellow coworkers or any of y'all), it must hard being isolated from other people for so long. We have our video conferences to try and combat the isolation, which helps (I think). I, like Domino, am excited to get back to the office. Stay safe out there Era and we will see ya on the other side of this thing.

I can't say much, but there is another patch coming. What's special about it? Can't disclose, BUT I think people will appreciate it. When does it launch? "Soon" (waiting for console certs) Thanks for being patient with us y'all. As everything right now, it has been a time of flux. Stay safe out there Era. -Zim

Sorry for the late response DJ Lushious, we've been busy over here. As for enhancements, I've been approved to share this info: The Pro and X versions of DS:G have higher visual fidelity overall. X renders at native 4K, whereas Pro renders at an upscaled 1440p. Frame rate target, however, is still 30fps. I hope y'all console owners enjoy the game in the next 16 days :)

Honestly, I haven't seen the game since the launch on PC / Stadia. Immediately afterwards I went straight onto Ruined King. Currently, the DS: G team is getting the day 1 patch ready for console release. As for performance(s), all I know is we did our best to optimize the game for all consoles.I too enjoyed BC, but for other reasons. It helped persuade me to apply to Airship :)

1080p / 60fps or 1440p upscaled to 4k / 60fps. We tuned it to run well on Stadia, but it is essentially high settings. What's crazy about Stadia, was testing it. It was so easy to boot up, people occasionally forgot it was on Stadia and just thought it was a local PC build.

You can choose to player either character at any time that fits your play style, but some puzzles requires tools that are specific to each of the horsemen.Thanks! It was great fun working on death executables. They range from goofy to down right brutal. Having also been part of the DS3 team, I'm glad you enjoyed that one too :)

SunhiLegend, maaaaaan, he posts some great gifs. Anywho, that's a GREAT question...... I unfortunately don't have a great answer. We have a set frame count in mind when creating impacts / flinches and its up to the designer hooking the character up to make sure its not overdone.
