I don't know what they've been doing for 5 years but that crap was surely not in development for that long.

I think they just had to really scale it back so that it wouldn't show up the new gen of consoles. Hence why it feels so rushed and looks ugly.

SieB 05-06-14 09:23 PM

The fact that it was in development for 5 years and it still got released looking as it does makes it worse.

Fair enough they may have been rushed to get it out but they would of known a long time ago that they wouldn't be able to do what they said they could. Instead of trying anyway, they should of done the best they could with the time they had instead of getting 90% done and leaving it so late that they had to cut back and rush it out.

That's personal opinion though. WD is not a simple game to make.

Again speculation, no real facts. Consumers of the games industry think they know everything and the right way to do it. The fact is, is that the games industry is way more demanding and complex than people think.

Ubisoft aren't amateurs (supposedly), so they should know what their limits are and not release half arsed stuff. There is no excuse for that fiasco, you wouldn't be okay with a car that is broken because it wasn't simple to build either.

Don't get me wrong, i'm not saying it is an easy job and I understand the complexity of making games, especially ones like Watch Dogs. But five years of development is a long time and more than most games, not to mention the 6 month delay.

I don't know exactly what happened with the development, but it is obvious something went wrong. Going from what they showed the game looked like at E3 to what the game looks like now there is a night and day difference. They didn't just cut back a little, they cut back massively. Either way it resulted in the game being rushed out and not being what they said it was going to be.

It seems to happen a lot with games these days, I think the best thing devs can do is not make out their game is going to look or be as good as they made out Watch Dogs to be. That way the devs wouldn't be under so much pressure to get it that way and they wouldn't receive so much negativity from people when they don't deliver.
People including me preordered Watch Dogs based on what they said the game was going to be, so naturally when we got given what we got you can understand why we are not so happy about it.

SPS 05-06-14 09:56 PM

Yeah I agree we shouldn't get unfinished games, however, consumers want developers to push the boundaries and unfortunately there is no business model that suits this. Kickstarter comes close (Star Citizen) but again that is not a solid form of funding. I personally prefer Steam early access games for early bug testing/consumer feedback at a reduced price and I think more developers should do this.

If EA/Ubisoft/Activision is publishing a title you simply don't preorder it. I think by now everyone should've realized that.

I don't want developers to push boundaries, i want them to release something solid. It seems like no major developer is capable of that.

Not a brand new purchase, About a week ago I got the final piece but I have it all in a box ready to be installed when I move, Just doing the CPU as I love the way the 780 Ti looks -

List -

XSPC G1/4" to 7/16" x8
XSPC X2O 750 Dual Bayres/Pump (Black) V4
XSPC AX360 Triple Fan Radiator (Black)
XSPC EC6 Coolant Clear
XSPC PSU Bridging Connector (24 Pin)
XSPC Hose Cutter
XSPC RayStorm CPU WaterBlock (Intel)
XSPC 7/16" High Flex Hose - Clear 2 meters
IC-Diamond 24 carat

I'm re-using the 3 x AF White LED 120mm fans I have on the front of the 540 on the radiator until Corsair releases the White LED SP's in august.

That was the bright green backplate with the Nvidia logo, I prefer this one as it goes nicely with the rest of the rig :)

Got it from Coldzero, He does custom orders and a plethora of other items too :)

ShaunB-91 12-06-14 12:26 PM

I just bought Mr. Kambo's 780 Classy. :) Very excited. I'll put some pics up when I receive it, does anyone have 4K monitors? I might YouTube a video of the rig from my S5 and let me know how it looks, haven't got a 4K monitor/TV myself so can't see it. :(

JR23 13-06-14 02:53 PM

You got a great deal Shaun, good luck with the classy.

Here's yet another purchase I just made to keep my rig super quiet when it's running cool. I bet somebody knows what it's for :) I also picked ups few sheets of Matt black acrylic and a little square of sorbothane :eek:

The only difference probably between these and yours will be the colour scheme and name ^_^

New backup hard drive for my mum as she dropped and broke her old one and broke it could not save any of the data, only half backed up else where as she said "I thought they don't fail" (face-palm)

Who knows buddy, but the HDMI port often had issues of not showing up on screen, could of been a cable but still seems dodgy. I tried multiple drivers really and didn't get any better.

Most likely the cable. HDMI ones are cheap anyway so wouldn't hurt to get a spare. If thats not it then could be the monitors port too? Lots of variables.

Been without an SSD for a while now and good god how I have missed the loading times.
My ageing Samsung F3 HDD is so f**in slow, it takes literally 2-3 mins from getting to the desktop till i'm able to load things without it having a hart attack.

I've already got most of the bits it'll need from my ITX build as that is having a bit of an upgrade (I'm getting an RM650 for it as a 550 wouldn't give me the option to go really wild with the GPU).
