"Todd Howard tells the BBC his team wondered if they 'were in over our heads' when creating the game."

Yes, they were in over their heads. They answered every problem with a loading screen.

FFXVI has a moment early on where your crew sees the first major crystal in the distance. We have to get there by nightfall.

It cuts to a loading screen. We select the point on the map. It loads again - nightfall now and we're at the crystal. Rinse and repeat for getting anywhere not part of your loaded instance chunk.

Replace FFXVI with Starfield and crystal with planet, and it's quite literally the same.

Baldurs gate has loading screens too.


XDefiant dev promises fix to frustrating hit reg issues, though players remain skeptical

Mark Rubin, XDefiant’s executive producer, responded to an X/Twitter post that fixes to hit reg “are something [they] are working on.” Unfortunately, it’s unclear when it will arrive, as neither Rubin nor the development team have yet to provide an actual time frame.

Ha man what is this the 8th time they are working on this issue?

SO the game is using division one maps/assets with some divison 2 thrown in with that we can say they never really made the maps so what have they been doing for there 6 to perhaps 8 years of dev time? must be alot of hookers/blow/parties.

It's astounding how much money they blow and this is the results. Gaming development is out of control.

Right even when ubisoft cancelled division heartland as a beta player that game was a far better state then they push with this trash of a game that is still in a beta state after 3 years of delay's.

we are so starved of any decent fps/3rd person shooters out there it seems we will take anything even though some ps2 fps games were more fun then this game in my old opinion.

Skeptical because it was an issue with ALL the betas and still hasn’t been fixed

Its like they are using division one servers but they caught fire then were put together with barry/carols help from the janitors wing or some shit. Three years they still can not make it so the gun goes boom the guy gets hit then damage is applied.
