    Whatever. For me they lost the second they made a "2". Just like Destiny.



    They should have expanded on the original. This "2" bull is just a blatant money grab.



    If they make expansions, money grab. If they make a new game, money grab. If they make DLC's, money grab. If they have in game stores, money grab. Monthly fee? Money grab...Is there anything that game developers can do to earn a salary and fund their projects that isn't a money grab? 



    FYI, yes a dev can make good money by hold a gun to the CEO's and the executives of useless ppl up top and take their cuts, once money transfer completed, then off with their heads. See then the dev will be fill with enough money to make lots of game and living like kings. The only reason game dev is paid with peanuts are due to useless ppl up top. Once they are gone the world will live a better life for all.

    Lastly, its always the useless ppl up top that ruin everything for everyone else, name one nice/good/noble executives? None on my list, however, we live in a world they are on top and will remain there to ruin ppl's lives. So labeling them all of what you said above are money grab is the full correct usage if nothing else. Didn't you know inequality in the USA is $10 dollars on the bottom while $10,000,000 million on the top? The difference is astronomical here. In today's econ their is no mid only the bottom or the high top executives, so where are you on that graph?

    While there are certainly "bad" people on top there are equally bad people on the bottom.

    Those people who are just getting by and waiting until the clock strikes 5 and "quittin' time"

    I've worked for some horrendous people on top. I've also worked for some amazing people on top.

    And guess what? They have a job to do. And that job, the one they are hired to do (unless it's their own company) is to keep the company running and to keep it profitable.

    I've not come across too many who weren't always working, who essentially made the company their lives. They get top buck and they have to answer for every little thing.

    Sometimes gaming forums feel like kids telling their parents "I hate you! And I'm never going to be you when I grow up" only to then "grow up" and realize their parents were just doing their best and essentially had a job to do.

    Only with sequels they have the freedom to make big technical improvements.

    I just wish sequels today let me transfer save file from the original to continue on the sequel like games did decades ago. Skipping that has been one of the biggest let downs of modern gaming for me.

    Profitable? Is extra $100 for a successful sale for everyone that works in the company seemingly are good enough, but hell no why not extra 10million for the top executive, if you ask me, that is exactly why those executives are working very very hard, but to screw everyone below them to make that profits.

    This including under mind projects to get ride of ppl whom don't agreed to this very responsible adults of making very high profits plan(s). Hey while they at it, bite the hands(customers) that feed them too. Those hard working executives sure work extra hard even in forums, to make that happen.

    Obviously, those executives make more money than 90% of the world population every could make in 10 lifetime is sure is "profitable" indeed. They could improve the world with that money? no?! Or the very least make a finish outstanding game if they want to? no?! But but those executive need to own at least 2 $100 million plus' boats so they can work extra hard. Ahh yes, those hard working executives, it amazing they are the very hard working type too.

    Pretty sure for most executives don't work as hard as you clam them to be, however, if you where to say screwing their hot sexy assistants is "working hard" and that be very true, indeed. Let not talk about the good adults work 10-10 just enough to paid for all their expenses of living to make those executives that 1 billion a month an reality, right?

    The PC version of The Division felt like it was built from the ground up for pc players which is one of the reasons I like it so much.
    Say what?  I felt the total opposite.  It was made for console and played like a console game on PC.   Pretty much every basic PC option was missing in the settings day one.  Not sure how you came to this conclusion.

    what options exactly? i have both versions PC and PS4 and the PC version settings is packed with options. Console versions usually only have brightness under graphics settings and no remap buttons.

    EDIT: but i do believe The Division 1 was indeed a console port. No matter what Ubi says they always do ports which is lame.

    Well, research does suggest psychopathy occurs at an unusually high rate among business leaders:

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/victorlipman/2013/04/25/the-disturbing-link-between-psychopathy-and-leadership/#3b08f3d44104

    Makes logical sense in some ways, too, in terms of jockeying for promotions to the top:

    "Several abilities – skills, actually – make it difficult to see psychopaths for who they are. First, they are motivated to, and have a talent for, ‘reading people’ and for sizing them up quickly. They identify a person’s likes and dislikes, motives, needs, weak spots, and vulnerabilities… Second, many psychopaths come across as having excellent oral communication skills. In many cases, these skills are more apparent than real because of their readiness to jump right into a conversation without the social inhibitions that hamper most people… Third, they are masters of impression management; their insight into the psyche of others combined with a superficial – but convincing – verbal fluency allows them to change their situation skillfully as it suits the situation and their game plan."
