And I hadn’t even heard about #puddlegate yet when I wrote this.

Good grief.

As one of the high tier Douches in Canada, they can’t be douches. They lack the false confidence we have.

Perhaps they’re trolls?

I work in an environmental testing lab. If they are Dirt I’d have to dispose of them as hazardous waste, with all four characterization stickers. (Flammability, Corrosivity, Reactivity and Toxicity.)

@Drake,

What about this one: https://www.xkcd.com/2038/

As Milamber33 points out at the link, that particular hazard instance is a bit specialized & there aren’t too many facilities that are equipped to have such incidents occuring. It would be a very rare occassion to need such a sign.
But there’s high number of them represented in the comic itself, too high to be feasible. So I think they’re representative of the common $$holes. As Dark Helmet in the movie Space Balls points out, there’s $$holes everywhere.

But seeing as you’re building the thing, I assume you would need to be doing that surgery and picking it apart. It’s the diffrence between being a surgeon and a serial killer – context and intent matter.

I am scared how much time people spend on watching the same movie. one if the comments for CDPR youtube gameplay was: “did you noticed how her butt changed shape after she took a sip from a can?”
like “REALLY”? you are watching a 45minutes long clip and notice a bum glitch?

I don’t know when I saw the first / last footage of this game….I think it was the very first teaser. And I just thought: Oh my gosh, this will be glorious!

Looking at the trailer now on the homepage, the Oh my gosh is still there. I’m excited about this game, and I’ll never care for the hating mob trying to ruin it for us.

Annnnd this is why crowdfunded will never produce product any better than the studios……..and why studios simply disconnect from playerbases.

If i had a dollar for evertime i saw personel bloat or lost dev time in smaller outfits trying to put out pr fires from these situations…… it’s a surprise anyone releases anything thats not finished and polished these days, but ofc then they get accused of vaporware.

I genuinely feel for devs trying to code something they are passionate about….

It looks like a generic as hell FPS/RPG. I seriously don’t get what people are excited about, I mean aside from the usual “Let’s give CDPR blowjobs”

Weird. I have watched the reactions of: Angry Joe; ACG; and YongYea. Smart mofos. Even their criticism is couched in “Yeah, that’ll get fixed.” and “Curious how that’s going to look later on.” And even “You know, I bet they’re doing this part on something like easy difficulty, to showcase these late-game abilities better.” Or “I love how they handle the credchip handoff here. It covers what could be an awkward transition, (because handing a thing from one character to another often involves a frame where it snaps from being attached to one model to being attached to the other,… Read more »

Well all I got from the demo was:
1) Almost wish it was going to wait for the next gen consoles so console owners actually get something near that experience (of course I firmly believe it being a cross gen title is likely)
2) TAKE MY MONEY!

I haven’t heard anything but positive things about it from all the videos, breakdowns and analyses i’ve watched. Pointing out maybe a tiny flaw here or there they’ve noticed, but at the same time acknowledging it’s still a work in progress.

Huh, and my response on seeing the gameplay demo was “holy shit, this looks awesome, I can’t wait for more!”

This is why I hate people.

You and me both. I’m not usually much for single player games, but I wanted it right away so I could delve into this amazing world and get in on the action. Didn’t even realize people were tearing up the gameplay demo till now.

I wonder how these people would feel about millions of asshats picking apart their life’s work.

“How could the developers let something so incomplete leave the lab? The game play with Bob is like watching paint dry if paint too 30 years for paint to dry and then only in the basement. He has no interaction with other players except as an NPC of low level.”

We now live in the “views” economy, and complaints get so many more views than compliments.

More views, likes, subscribes, notifications, etc. allow people to monetize their “opinions”, and as we keep consuming the feeds, we financially incentivize them to keep doing it. We are the problem we hate.

Huh. So far I’d only heard good reactions to it. Until this comic, I’d no idea people were ripping it like that at all.

I think that fans are probably bmore critical of this simply becasue of CDPR has a reputation for pumping out such impeccable games at launch, even if only compared to other studios. It makes a certain type of person look even harder for flaws.

To be fair the people super dissecting this does do that for a living. The ones I’ve saw know the engine that it is based off of. They note the known limitations and where those have be overcome. They not glitches introduced and also talk about why certain measures where taken for how this game is played to compensate compared to the game the engine is most known for.
At this point its free bug analyses and their is also a good chance a lot of those are caught and fixed in the internal build.

I grew up with video games back during the Super Nintendo and Mega Drive era, so whenever I hear some entitled, ignorant, little graphics whore moaning about puddles, graphics, or some techno jargon they dont even fully understand, I just wonder what the hell is wrong with them. They’re video games, not the second coming of Jesus Christ.
