Thread White man blames autism for causing him to call police on Black women at pool
Spent several years of my leaving teaching autistic kids and people with special needs, of all ages. Never once did I meet one that was racist because of it. Not once. Closest I probably got was a few melt downs because “girls” were in the room. I did however meet a lot of little shits and idiots who didn’t have autism or anything of the sort, who felt the need to be racist however. Just normal every day idiots. Funny that.

Thread Smyths Toys Manager reckons if Nintendo Lowered there game prices they both make more money?
Always hated Nintendo’s pricing stuff. It’s god awful. I understand it though, I mean, a games quality doesn’t drop just because time has passed. But I’ve seen launch 3DS titles still going to £35. That’s utterly bloody stupid. BOTW still goes for full price... why? It’s an incredible game but just drop the damn price already. Every other format release at full price then as interest dwindles, prices drop. Nintendo never seem to do that, even when interest has faded...

Thread The Donkey Kong Country Returns saga needs a third game
I enjoyed the new donkey kong country games, but... they just never hit the same notes as the original games. And I hate that. They were just too simple, the enemies were terrible, the bonus stuff poor... sure it was a fantastic few games but it just wasn’t the same... For me, I wanted Kremlings, with banana coins, DK coins, bonus challenge areas, and levels/gameplay more akin to the old ones. But oh well... I still have the old ones :) they are still some of the tightest and amazing games ever made, with 2 being one of my all time fave top 3.

I don’t envy valve at all for the position they are in. They are essentially the guy at the party that everybody knows has a huge cock but nobody has seen it in 10 years... What I mean is, they have this impressive backlog of games, and half life 3 is possibly the most anticipated and wish for game EVER... but what if it’s shit? What if it’s just another FPS? The amount of pressure that must be on their shoulders is insane. No other company can even compare. And companies have far surpassed valve in recent years worn game making and story telling. So you have a company that is known for being one of the best at doing that type of game, but that was back in the day when that shit wasn’t common. Now, they NEED to be the best thing ever. The game NEEDS to be a 10/10 master piece or the whole world would be up in arms, and they would damage their company image. The pressure they have created for themselves is insane... and to think, all this could have been ignore if they just made episode 3 back when they said...

I just pre-ordered The Surge 2, and it went as normal. No up front charge, totally normal. Not sure if it’s the sexy LE version but that’s not the point. I’m a prime member and I pre-order roughly 87 billion games a year with them. Debit card, would never have a credit card. So not sure what’s going on...? I’ve also checked and all small print on the order says I won’t be charged until release. It even says on my mail I won’t be charged until the item is shipped. So if that’s not the case, and they charge me, then I’ll request a refund and tell them to do one. Im Not paying for prime if they won’t even bother to do this basic ass shit right.

Is this legit...? I’m still getting nothing come up as a prime member, it’s still saying pre-order now, but not to pay. Also no retroactive charge thank god. On the week of E3 nearly, and they decide to do this? So that means if any new consoles are up for order, or any new games, of which there will be dozens I’ll pre-order, they expect me to pay it all in advance...? Haha... no thank you. I order on average about 4-5 games a month, usually via pre-order. Thankfully it’s been quiet these last two months and haven’t bought so much. But if they seriously have done this, I’ll be shopping elsewhere.

Thread If BOTW ever gets a sequel that iterates on the formula, I'd like them to hone in more on "pure exploration" (aka Forgotten Temple appreciation)
I would say that actual temples be most important, as the challenge temples were fun but not quite would I expect from a Zelda game. I would rather they had challenge temples as well as actual dungeons. The only other thing would be durability. Finding stuff and having it break after 5 hits was stupid. If they were instead to make weapons and items more durable, but still break... only to have them need repair at certain vendors? And then use any dupes to repair what you have? I could get behind that. But as it stands some weapons only took 10 hits before they were forever gone. Which just seemed utterly stupid. But other than that... it was the perfect game.

Thread Rage 2 has gone gold - 1080p60 on Pro and Xbox One X.
I already said we know little to nothing about it, and that the pro may run like ass or the x may run with have fidelity. And when you don’t have actual facts the only thing left is to “assume”. As for uninformed, while I haven’t worked with avalanche tech, I’ve been working with id software tech for 20 years.

Thread Rage 2 has gone gold - 1080p60 on Pro and Xbox One X.
Let’s assume, because at this point that’s all we can do, that the pro runs it locked 60fps most of the time. Let’s just assume. If that was the case, then the X will also run it the same or better. Which means that the difference in power, which is about a third, is going to waste. Now, power isn’t all the same. Cpu deals with things differently to gpu. But here I see a graphically intensive game but not cpu intensive. Regardless... if the game was cpu bound, they should be able to increase resolution without much getting in the way. If it’s gpu bound then the pro will likely run utterly piss poor compared to the x at release. It doesn’t make any sort of sense. There’s a reason that you usually see a 1080p/1440p or 1440p/4k divide, and that’s because the power difference between the two make it easy. It’s essentially, if done right, possible to get the X release higher res by default, because there will be power gone to waste. That’s why it doesn’t make sense. You can use the exact same optimisations and set up on one machine and then just use that on X and have performance to spare. All of this is telling me one thing... the Pro will run really badly. And that’s a massive shame. It’s also making me worried about about base consoles.

Thread Rage 2 has gone gold - 1080p60 on Pro and Xbox One X.
It’s not about 60fps not being a good thing. The problem is quite clear... the X is faster than the pro - by quite a margin. Essentially here you have both systems running the game at the same quality and the same frame rate. Sooo... either the pro is seriously dropping frames and is nowhere near 60fps... or the X is really pushing detail and loss everywhere... But regardless, the systems pushing the same? That doesn’t make sense. If the game is hitting 60fps on pro, then it should be able to easily hit 1440p on X at the same detail. So I have no idea what’s going on here but i really hate the way the x is given such a hard shoulder by devs sometimes. Just screams wrong to me.

Thread Why do a lot of games track playtime incorrectly?
I hate it when devs just don’t give a fuck on Xbox, and don’t even bother adding it to the stats page on the dash. Even worse are games like the Witcher though. They didn’t even bother to account for when you turn off the Xbox in instant on, meaning it is still counting your game time... rendering it pointless. I love game time and stats and think they should be in everything. Such a simple thing but it’s shocking how few care.

Thread Quake 2 RTX annouced - NV supported version of Q2VKPT
Just to clarify, back when the quake 2 scene was none existent and quake 1 only had a few sources report attempts out, I made quake 2 evolved, the first source port to contain per pixel lighting and shadowing. I was st the forefront of the quake 2 modding scene back then and wasnin charge of most of the efforts for improving its visual look and bring it up to (then) spec. So a lot of the textures you see in that video are mynown from, god, 15 years ago maybe? Some of the other assets I see include some textures by other artists, a few of my old ass models and kmans models. Usually when you see an old school quake 2 pic these days it contains my art or my hud or something I did. Feels nice to have contributed in that way. Sadly, as far as quake 2 goes anyway, it was seriously limited in what youth could do compared to quake 1, as its network protocol was so heavily locked down it meant that some things couldn’t be changed st all without breaking it and thus forcing mods to not work, or players to need a new version (so old players couldn’t play at the same time). It’s one of the reasons why you saw a lot of quake 1 stuff but barely anything quake 2. I still develop on quake 2’s engine today actually, it just looks a bit different...

You know what, I didn’t even know that. I played the game and it felt so tight and responsiveness I just didn’t even think otherwise, I just rolled with it. That should say how important frame rate and responsiveness is, really. But also that a 4k/30 option would be brilliant.

Yeah I buy console games, why not? I buy both. I don’t limit myself to one format. Sometimes I love to sit at a computer desk and play proper, sometimes I like to just sit in front of the tv with a controller and no fuss, knowing I can pick my game up on the Xbox upstairs any time I want to. Choices, man, choices!! As for performance, I never thought it would hit 60 at 4k, I never even expected it. It’s too large and detailed a game. But I would have thought 4k 30 would be possible. I mean the game looks good but not THAT good, even more so when I’ve just come away from New Dawn running 4k/60 flawless, and am now playing The Division 2 which is a much more detailed and complex game running 4k30. Seems like a huge oversight and hope to see a toggle at some point. Getting very tired of being forced into things like this, it should be my choice. It’s the same as FOV.... that should be user choice.

1080p? Is this a joke? Offering no options is no fun at all. I was expecting 4k30/1080p60, at the very least. I may cancel this and buy it on pc, my rig can likely run the game flawlessly anyway... but that’s a massive shame. Edit: of course the biggest worry I have about this is control. This isn’t id software, it’s not their engine. I’m used to id software games being perfect control wise with zero input lag or delay. I’m worried this won’t be.

Thread VGTech: DMC5 Console Comparison - Release Version
Ok, let me rephrase. As an artist, I want my work to be presented in as perfect a way as possible. Imagine something you make being messed with, you know? You make your wife a nice meal and she covers it in ketchup. It would piss you off, right? So here you have art that’s created to a set pipeline and that pipeline is that it uses an sharpen post process effect. This is common, a lot of game shave done this. But it destroys image quality. However that’s not the way the game is supposed to be displayed. It’s supoosed to be displayed AA on, AA which softens the pixel crawl and edge enhancement while retaining the original detail in the image at close and medium distances. Sadly a byproduct of this is that you lose some higher frequency detail, and that is most noticeable at long distance. That’s why you have alpha foliage planes losing detail, or texture being harder to read. Now, the Pro uses FXAA only(opposes to the X which uses FXAA+TAA, or just TAA, I can’t tell for sure), however it uses such a low sample amount it’s basicaly the same image as using none. Now then, the issue stems from the original problem. You have an over sharpen filter. So, anything with high frequency detail now turns to noise when displayed at a native high resolution. So hair, the detail on Leon’s clothing, specular highlights, anything sharp and small such as alpha masked lines (fences for example) just turn to noise. Add in that, to their overly aggressive chromatic aberration implementation, and you have a recipie for poor visuals. Now most people play on a 1080p display. They won’t see this. Most people play on a smaller set, 40” and below. They won’t see this. As I said, I’m not in this for console wars. I think that side of things is pathetic. It’s a joke. People need to grow up. But I AM in this for technical discussion and analysis. And as such I usually side with X because it will have either the best overall result, OR, it will have a subpar result compared to the Pro; and that an equally interesting discussion to have.

I have both my gaming monitor and OLED calibrated professionally, but thanks. The game uses a sharpening filter, so when no AA is deployed, it’s overly obvious. Same when you only use a lower quality AA, it has less of an effect on removing it. Higher FXAA+TAA removes it, but still keeps the close and mid range detail sharp, while eliminating pixel crawl, over sharp and keeping detail.

The pro version of RDR2 from what I recall still uses a wonky resolution and as such renders rectangular pixels for upscaling. It can’t have a better dithering effect than the X, simply because dithering is 1,0,1,0 by very definition and is basedly solely on resolution. The higher the resolution, the better the dithering.

Actually when it comes to the hdr implementation of RDR2 and W3, one was released earlier than any HDR standard coming out, and this hdr authoring wasn’t even a thing. It was early days. As for RDR2, I have no idea why t was the way it was, but when setup correctly, the HDR wasn’t as bad as most people said it was, it was just different. I do feel however that the way they handled HDR in RDR2, more so the complete lack of communication on the problem, was awful. I’m not saying I’m special. I am however saying that when you view these things with a technical eye, rather than a gamer with a 30” 1080p tv in his bedroom, you appreciate details on a different way.

I’m not going into specifics, but that’s the whole reason I post over at the other place in “those threads”. You’ll notice I actually stick up for all consoles, not just one, and will point out issues when they come up. An example of a false fact is how the pro is better than the x in this thread, when... the x doesn’t even have the later updates. When the pro is running the same revision as the x is running, it’s peformance is much worse as well. So in this case, it’s a pointless argument because you’re comparing two different things. May as well fight the Pro against the S and say the pro is a clear winner there too. Makes no sense. I’m in the discussions for one thing; technical analysis. I don’t care which one comes out on top, however, when the pro beats the X badly, I’ll be confused and discuss “why”, as that shouldn’t happen.

Once again, you’re comparing a static picture to a real time game. That’s not how it works. This mind bending logic sounds like TheLastWord from *the other place*, a poster who quite clearly has Sony tattooed on his anus. So I’ll say it again, just to be clear here. The visual noise that the Pro displays is much much worse in movement and when, you know, “playing the game”. Yes, it looks sightless sharper in images, but in real time on a real display, it’s nowhere near as good. This is almost as mind bending to me, as the people who complained RE2 was better on pro over X because the game had better FPS in cutscenes on Pro, when the X had better FPS in gameplay. It’s so backward it makes no sense.

Thread VGTech: DMC5 Console Comparison - Release Version
People bitching about the Pro versus X difference in resolution when it’s using both FXAA and TAS on X and thus having a blurry image, haven’t actually had the chance to ply them both side by side. The issue with the RE engine is that it ovwrsharpwns your image, and as such some things sre VERY overblown. Imagine a black wire on a bright blue sky. Now imagine one screen has AA, and you see no hard edges, and one screen has a sharpening filter, and looks utterly terrible. Now apply that to alpha tested surfaces (hair, foliage) and anything where brightness contrasts dark (specular highlights etc). So, yes the X produces a slightly more blurry image, but the pro is so visually noisy that it’s actually really difficult on the eyes to play. Imagine a 4k video running at 1080p, with no downsampling at all applied. That’s the sort of visua noise you’re dealing with. So while pro users keep going on about their sharper image, it’s avtually ruined, because in motion it’s utterly dreadful.

It’s that simple, really. If people only have one console, then by all means you’re limited in choice, so pick your console version. But don’t start throwing false facts about because you can’t afford the other. So yeah, TLDR, I don’t care which machine has more sales or what anybody has, but keep facts to facts.

Pretty much everything to be honest. The game looks nothing like what I would expect from a FFVII remake. Well, it’s a different game, for one. RE2 just showed the world that you CAN remake a game with a different camera and have it be ok, but this whole beast is different... story elements dropped and changed, camera removed and switched, combat real time, done in episodes etc... this is before you get into the actual changes... The thing about FFVII is it was perfect because it was released at a time when games could be bad. We didn’t look twice at the field models being so chubby compared to the battle models. We didn’t care that we had to wait 10 minutes for a summon. Nobody cared about the fact cloud put on a dress, or slid down a slide, or went to a theme park on a date... but these days? People care. And that’s a shame. For me, all I wanted, was essentially the same damn game, some bugs fixed, a few new quests added, but the same game. Remake all the backgrounds, remodel the world map, make detailed battle models while keeping the classic look of the field ones... But nah, the remake, it’s just not working for me...

The good: - Jesus Christ, erm... everything? This machine is amazing. - So quiet, I can hardly hear it even on mute. Every hour I do get a small fan kick start for about 5 seconds that goes away, but I’m talking very quiet even then. Wow. - Performance in games has been amazing and so has visuals. So far tried AC:Origins which looks amazing once set up, Zoo Tycok which is now smooth in frame rate, 4k, and no longer crashing. Lego Worlds which looks fantastic even at just 1080p and not a single frame rate hitch, and Fallout 3, which, for an old game, looks utterly stupid at 4k... Wow... - Did I mentioned how quiet this is? - I did also install the Insects demo, which is nice, if nothing more than for testing your HDR settings out :) But for now, at half 1 in the morning, I really should be in bed... I just hope they add a X logo to the icons in My Games And Apps so I can see what’s installed a little easier than the toggle top right... Speaking of........ Km sure this picture has nothing to do with anything, but... one of these things is not like the others...

Hold your horses there cowboy... I bought this digital for my wife, and it crashes... Like, all the damn time. At the end of every mission, boom, crash... She had to move to my PC to play it (got a free digital code as its play anywhere) and its smooth as butter, far nicer looking, and.... no Crashes. So hopefully this gets patched to work, otherwise all the x's visuals in the world wont save it :(

See, this is something that's been bugging me for a long while. Stores are going the way of the dodo, and I do 99.9% of my purchases online, and I don't have an issue. I'm a Prime member, which is good for next day delivery. I've had a few cases when games and things haven't appeared. You just call them up and get credit. Annoying but hey, mistakes happen. But my issue is in this lovely glorious next gen age, you have patches. And now, 4k patches. So these next day delivery slots can be ok, but they can also come at 9pm at night. Meaning that when little Billy opens his shiny new Quantum Break on Christmas Morning, he's got to patch the thing first... So what are you supposed to do, when little billy buys it and it comes the next day at 9pm? Sit there and download 100gb? Yeah, he wont be playing for a while... Which is why I think its utterly STUPID that you can't sign into xbox live, go to the market place, and click "Download game", without buying it. Why? Bandwidth their end? They have the money, get more damn servers... I should be able to download a game, patch it, and have it on my HDD with no licence to play, waaaaaaay in advance of owning the disk, like you can digital. Silly...

Amazon UK are taking the smeg... My wife and I watched the show live, then F5ed the shit out of all the sites until the Scorpio came up for pre-order. We got one within 20 seconds of them going live, if that. Here I am, the day before release, with amazon telling me its still planned for delivery, up to 11pm at night. But its not even been set up for dispatch yet. ELEVEN PM. What the shit am I supposed to do at 11pm? Because I sure as shit wont be playing anything thanks to having to transfer everything over... But the real kicker, is that my friend pre-ordered one LAST WEEK from Amazon UK, and he's not even a Prime member like myself... His was packed and dispatched Saturday... They really need to sort out how these orders work, its almost like they do it the wrong way around... We order thousands of pounds of gaming stuff every year from those asshats, yet they decide to give priority to my friend, who, in his own words, "never uses amazon as its a piece of shit but whatever have the cash". Yeah ok, the waiting killing a little bit more than it should haha :p

Because truth be told those people that use that as an excuse are morons. Simple as. Strip away all the third party stuff and yes, MS has a weaker line up. You can't really argue that point, its just true. They look better, and there are more of them, on Sonys machine. Theres nothing like Last of Us, Uncharted, Horizon, on xbox, that's first party. That's just true. Can it be fixed? Yeah of course, but for now, its true. But the argument is always xbox has no games... That includes third party. Looking at the games I've played in recent memory... South Park, Evil Within 2, Creed Origins, Wolf 2, Prey, The Surge etc, they have all been multiplats. These are available on either machine. Now, with the X, they will be best played on xbox. The argument that people get into about first party is a valid one, sure. But its not the be all end all. you have games to play, just not the games you may WANT to play at that given time. Its the exact same argument as somebody crying at PlayStation because they can't play Mario. Well... Go buy a Switch then? you don't want to? Then you wont play Mario. Its valid argument, but a stupid one too. You get what you get, simple as.

No, not at all. Its clear they have made mistakes and have planned things badly. Shutting down studios and having a focus on the wrong types of games, things like Scalebound and Fable? Those are mistakes. But games take time to make. So lets say a year ago, they woke up and went "oh, bugger me, PlayStation has quite a fair few good exclusives, how did we not see this coming? Lets make some!". Well, you wont be seeing or hearing about those games until next year at the earliest. The whole "xbox has no games" thing is stupid. I have over 120 games for my xbox one. I have 12 for my PS4. How is that possible? I'm stupid? Blind fan boy? Nah, I just got the PS4 for the exclusives, but played the multiplatforms on xbox. I love the pad. All my friends and wife are there. We have multiple Xboxes in the house, so we can all play. Plus now, with the X, its the best place for those multiplatforms. Of course, I have Uncharted, Last of Us, Bloodbourne, Horizon and the like... I can't get those anywhere else... But I also have a really good PC. As a games designer myself, I kind of have to. Its the law. So no, its on MS for fucking up and not making games at the right time. Its something they have always done. Look at Rare, one of the best devs in the business in yesteryear, who have been working on the same bloody game for half a decade and its still not out. The same team (though not people) who made some of the best games of my childhood... and they are locked away. But what do we know? They could be working on something else. you just don't know, its too early. Mark my words... Next year is the make or break year for Microsoft. They will have the best console out, and will really need to impress. That's when they will start showing more off. But they can make changes yesterday. The lack of ANY advertising of games that I can see is hurting them. I've lost track of the number of films I've seen that's had 3 or 4 Sony adverts before them. The lack of money hatting deals is also hurting them (although it makes me laugh that its ok now Sony is doing it, but when MS did it with COD, they were evil). Oh and the xbox one x price STILL stings. It should have been £399.99, or hell, take the damn hit and go £349.99. GANGBUSTERS. Microsoft are in this position from their own doing. But people need to just shut up with the "xbox has no games" shit. Its getting old.

Fed up of reading about how the PS4 Pro is the better choice on NeoGaf... Good lord... Yes, Sony has games out now. Yes, they have games coming soon... But games don't exactly take 13 days to make. I'm sure MS has some things up their sleeve. Anyway... Seriously impressed if all the rumblings about noise levels are true. It was the one last thing I was worried about. Great stuff. Bit confused as to why most of my X updates haven't even started showing yet... I want them downloaded and done ready for transfer on Tuesday.

I LOVED playing sea of thieves. It was an incredible looking world, which was so much fun... it just needed a single player/coop game with it. That was all. A proper game behind it. But the world they created, the way it played, it was all too notch, and I hate to see it get bad mouthed. I would rather play it than many of the new big hitters that people for some reason love. At least it was FUN.

It’s a dick move. It just is. I know a few people this has confused who had it preordered on steam, who were confused if they would be able to play it or not. Look, I get it, steam are fucking miserable when it comes to that 30% cut shit. That needs to be dropped down, massively. This isn’t new thinking either, as people have felt this way for years. But that doesn’t excuse dick moves like this. You don’t just take your turkey out the oven because you have a big table some place else, when there are people sat down to eat. Pc gaming is solid because of CHOICE. You want it on steam? GOG? Whatever? Shoot. You should be adding another service, not removing one and restricting, and certainly not at this close to release after people have pre-ordered. I won’t even get into the utter mess of all these launchers too much... whatever... it won’t change it. But if you’re going to make a launcher that forces people to use it you better make damn sure it’s features compete. What a mess...

Thread Chris Redfield Model found in Resident Evil 2 Remake Files
I guess the issue with chris is that he simply looked nothing like him. Voice, eyes, face, hair, clothes, it was all a different character. Leon, well, he’s the same in many ways. But at least with him we are going back in time 20 years. His character will be different, his voice less mature etc. He looks somewhat the part, not 100%, but at least when you see him with his 90s curtains and RPD outfit you know who it is. Chris, by the time of RE7, had a few redesigns, as did Leon. But they were all the same look, just tweaked slightly. I don’t know what they are thinking with Chris. The guy they picked can look like him when used in other ways, as been proven by posts. But capcom need to just admit that they have indeed messed up, and totally change him. At this point I don’t even care if “Redfield” turns out to be a clone, or his long lost cousin, or a faker, whatever, it’s not like RE games have amazing stories. Just get that imposter out of here.

Ok done with Leon A and Claire B. Hated hated hated some parts, they really let me down. Too much changed and not in a bad way. Was I the only one fed up with the Clair B bullet situation? You get a pistol, and that pistol will have bullets. Standard. But you will also find right at the start another pistol, and that one will have OTHER bullets. The problem, is that pistol A can only get bullets from combining gun powder, and pistol B has bullets found in the level... but pistol A has upgraded and B doesn’t... also the bullets for pistol alA work with another pistol you find, but same story, gunpowder only... Very odd... why not just use one bullet type here? Made it over complicated. Anyway as with my Leon A run where I never used the flame thrower etc, here I have no idea what the spark shot or sub machine gun are like. I finished the game with like 800 bullets and never used it. Both times on standard. I’ll now move to hardcore, and play Claire A/ Leon B this time. Only this time with the music swap, because god damn they butchered the music in this.

Thread Enough remasters, I want more remakes
More like Spyro, then yes please. That game was an utter joy to play. RE2 though while a fantastic game, has changed way too much. Awful, awful music, some odd padding that wasn’t really needed, and story beats that don’t quite hit the same level as the original. So yeah, I would be happy to get remakes that are essentially just the original game with a few control and issues touched up and brand spanking new graphics, but change too much and you risk changing what made the original so great.

Also I said ages back when I first heard of the difficulty options. They should have had easy, normal and hardcore, and they also should have had another option that essentially just said “do you want to use auto save (easy) or ink ribbons (hard). That way people could play whatever mode they wanted and still use ink ribbons. I don’t even think auto save belongs in a game like this but oh well, kids these days can’t beat shit without all the help in the world...

Thread Retro Studios reportedly pitched a demo for Prime 4 themselves, which Nintendo liked, MPT port for Switch has been done for a while (and more)
At a time when Nintendo are getting hammered for releasing nothing but ports, it’s quite clear why they are sitting in trilogy. However, they should make a distinction... People don’t mind ports of good games that are older. For example, people wouldn’t mind MP Trilogy in 1080p, or other game cube era games. What people mean is they don’t want the worst looking 2d Mario thatbonly came out a few years ago back at full price. And I think that’s a fair thing to say. Nintendo keep re-releasing the same old stuff at AAA prices. I can see why people are pissed. But Trilogy is likely one of the few games people WOULD pay high prices for, simple because it’s never been done in HD resolution on console before. They don’t even have to redo assets, the game still looks amazing. So yeah, I see why they would sit on it, and to be fair, it’s the public’s fault if they are... but not entirely.
