    I have a feeling most of the Codex would approve of whatever advice you're dishing out :shittydog:

    This is bugging me - have you ever considered running the game through a closed beta? I'm not an expert but isn't it advantageous to get 200 QA monkeys gratis for a few months? It would filter out most of the stuff people are now crying about, like the lockpicking, saving, plus a mountain of feedback about bugs and glitches.

    Sure, 'cause I'm a nazi. So believe me, no actual nazies are portrayed in Wolfenstein. Which is why I didn't like it. I felt underrepresented.

    Not a programmer, but I did beta. The thing about closed betas is that you have to keep updating the tester version of the game and reading feedback and acting on said feedback. That slows down the work on the dev-version of the game. If the team kinda already knows what's wrong with the game, closed beta is just a waste of time. Tester opinion is only relevant once you reach the "OK, we need more eyes cuz we see nothing wrong with the game at this point". Not saying KCD was rushed or anything. :lol:

    We did run one since October or Novemeber. No idea about the scale of it though. It helped a lot.

    Congratulations, 500k sales achieved in 3 days. They're definitely starting to make a profit now. Well deserved despite the bugs, IMO.

    Answer my previous question. Also, are you planning to implement an optional quicksave in the future? What's the worst that can happen?

    Hmm, so I...
    Show Spoiler
    Kinda stormed and wiped out the entire Pribyslavitz camp on my own, when doing the recon mission. There's a door that won't open, which I assume is tied to some cutscene. Would have hoped for some more reaction though, because I'm not getting any feedback that I'm awesome for being a one-man army. Also, since it was extremely easy to do so(I fought carelessly and lost maybe 10 health), maybe it should be made harder? As in, a lot harder. I guess I've fairly high character skills and equipment for this stage, but still.

    There is a quicksave mod. IMO it's needed due to crashes. Might no longer be needed once more patches come in.

    It's pretty easy to gallop to the nearest town and save in lodgings or a free bed (game saves everytime you sleep, even for an hour).

    But yeah, the systems is as much dumpster fire shitty as it is brilliant. Maybe a bit more on the shitty side.

    Btw Smejki, have someone explain to Vavra that if you're really ready to back down and implement "Save&Quit", you might as well go full on "quicksave-quickload". Those two are functionally 100% the same, only the first one is more clunky and will piss people off. Needlessly.

    You should've done a Normal and Veteran mode from the get go btw. I really love the idea of Schnapps. It'll be sad when it gets obliterated with the Save-Quit implementation.

    I don't think game saves in 'free' beds. Only your own beds and lodgings.

    Can people stop using money and profit as an example of quality game? If money would be only thing that matters. Mass Effect Andromeda would be totally awesome, while Vogel's games would be total crap. (And Sims would be a pinnacle of game design. Which they kinda are, but only from theoretical point of view of person who studied post gradual education in game development and AI. Which for these who are normal means he probably means it was crap but for these with post-gradual it has some qualities they are using in incomprehensible dissertations about art and whatever stuff... Something like movie critics.)

    KCD was released as technological disaster with some redeeming qualities. And that's it. Would it be viewed to be as extraordinary as Vampire Bloodlines were 10 years later? Probably not. Would it be better than Mafia? That's the question, when it will be viewed 10 later as better game, it would mean these developers improved themselves, and it wasn't only they had more money to throw at wall and hoped it sticks.

    (Of course I'd prefer if Troika would survive as charity organization paid by government, and releasing quality freeware. But it's what it's. Players needs hope for decent games that made in spite of current profit based societies.)

    Oh look. :roll:

    It wouldn't be the first time the media hypes a game that is actually mediocre or downright shit. The ESS JAY DOUBLE Us!! have nothing to do with it.

    Yes. Limited/Unlimited saving should be a choice in options menu or at least when starting a new game, coupled with a proper quicksave button. And they also need to add the option to disable those item pickup animations because fuck that nonsense. Add those things and fix the damn stuttering/freezing and this game is pure incline.

    skyrim was well received by its target audience even if its target audience eats paste.

    Skyrim had no "SJW bullshit" associated with it. It is retarded to assume Wolfenstein II was well received because of that and that alone. That's my point.

    Indeed. Skyrim is disliked by the Codex. Journos and players are on the same page on that one. The point raised went completely over Sigourn 's head. Guess that "village idiot" tag is well earned.

    You never made a point of any kind. It was literally "the game was praised because of its Ess Jay Double Yous" theme. Double retard from you since you already pointed out "the press is dumb", which was more than enough to explain why Wolfenstein II was well received despite being a mediocre game according to some users.

    Else, explain it to me.
