Well I've never had a stable job but I did have my fair share of asshole bosses and I don't think I ever expected the client to take the fall for that.


There's a difference between an asshole boss and a boss who actively expects you to do things that they themselves inhibit you from doing (though these categories aren't mutually exclusive). I experience it 5 days a week.

This crap isn't cheap, someone is profiting off it, that someone has to deliver.


They are delivering. To shareholders. That's their primary concern; how much of that comprises delivering a well optimized game changes on a case by case basis.

Yes, because they are well optimized. Something big time developers can't be bothered to do.


Circular logic is circular. Also flawed. You just said 'nope' and expected it to pass as an argument there.

Protecting their investment so they can dump more cash into the Xbox*


'Tis what I was getting at.

In a fantasy world, maybe.


Now you're being obtuse.

Take Worms Revolution for example. It has the look and feel of an indie game but somehow I can't run it at maximum frame rate...


Wouldn't be surprised if this game is built off the previous 'modern' worms titles such as reloaded, golf and whatnot and thus has alot of shit chugging away in the background that they don't really need. It's indicative of a low budget and fast turnaround task given by the guys upstairs.

Something big time developers can't be bothered to do.


Refer to my aforementioned arguments. Then refute them with no contrary points other than 'nope' again.

Even better.

Like I give a fuck about shareholders, you shouldn't ether. Hey Llama I'm curious, have you ever filed a complaint or asked for a refund in your life? Or do you just go like "meh" if you buy a toaster and realize it doesn't make toast?

Yes, because they are well optimized. Something big time developers can't be bothered to do.


I'm out of arguments.


I was hours ago, you win this round, aquaman..

'Tis what I was getting at.


As was I. The difference is I'm not treating it as a good thing.

In a fantasy world, maybe.


Now you're being obtuse.


Cry me a river.

Take Worms Revolution for example. It has the look and feel of an indie game but somehow I can't run it at maximum frame rate...

And normally you'd be correct, but for once they actually built a game from strach, if we don't take planning and desgin into consideration. Though there's never been much of that in Worms games...

Something big time developers can't be bothered to do.


Really, I'm out of arguments.


Aquaman, you truly have earned your place as my nemesis!
