Why the fuck people care about these self proclaimed important vloggers?


Because they're actually not self-proclaimed. They've garnered viewers because they make great content that they like. The fans have spoken, not Civvie or LGR.

Sometimes not even then! Patches, bugfixes and all that. :dukecigar:

I remember the guy's video on Sigil, it was nothing special, and his voice was annoying as fuck. The only vlogger I enjoyed sometimes in the past was BigMacDavis, but even then, who cares if he stops it or makes more videos? This cultic fanboyism is sick. And so is the hysterical downvoting.

Question for the devs:

Once Ion Fury is released this Thursday, will the game be updated to its full version across all the stores where it's being sold at the same time? (Steam, 3DR, GOG, etc). Or is it gonna be in a specific order?

My guess would be: Steam, GOG, 3DR. I hope I am wrong and it's at the same time on all platforms, though.

We have always done everything to have things in sync. Our intention is to do this with the release as well.
None of us devs have direct access to 3DR or GOG backends so it is impossible to make precise promises on timing, however I doubt there will be any issues preventing a simultaneous unlock.

One time (update 4) was kept out of GOG and 3DR for months as it wasn't release-stable and it took us longer than we anticipated to fix it.

You don't have direct access to 3DR or GOG? That's really surprising. I'm surprised the devs haven't had a chance to address that.

We are the devs, not the publisher :dukecigar:
You don't really have a neat API to push things on your own for GOG like steam does.

Well, I am confident 3DR will publish the game on time. How it will be with updates may be a different thing, though.

If anyone can comment on them, how are the console ports shaping up?



Also about the youtubers; LGR is in general just an optimistic nerd and he never claims to be anything else. He's a lovable dork.

Civvie has been critical about games, whether old or new, while still finding positives about them. He's usually spot on about any critiques as well. Watch his Pro Doom or Pro Blood videos and you'll realize this dude clearly played the shit out of these games in the 90s and isn't some pretender.

Also his review of Fresh Supply review where he calls out GGGManLives won me over completely. I have a feeling GGGMan is going to be a contrarian when it comes to Ion Fury.

If I can be clear here, how this has been historically:

We make a build. Build will be whatever game content.
We push it to Steam, people on Steam play it.
We pack the content in an archive and send it to 3DR. They double check there's nothing weird and upload it (usually within 24 hours).
We send the same package to GOG.
GOG rips the entire package open and repacks everything with their own configurations, installers, etc and sometimes mess it up (yay).
They upload it when they feel like.

I understand wanting to buy DRM free games from there, but there is nothing very pretty about the process. Apologies for anything appearing late on their platform and I wish we had full control. We are planning on having things as coordinated as possible besides that potential roadblock of how GOG does things.

I think someone from NightDive said that GOG now let devs push beta builds directly on their platform, the catch being that the user has to use GOG Galaxy to download.

That's a pretty scummy move for GOG if so. I'm not liking the trend of GOG pushing Galaxy so much. People shouldn't have to use it if they don't want to. I like it and I love it's features (I've been using the new Galaxy beta and it's great keeping track of my entire library in one place), but people need the choice. Especially for GOG given how it started and what it stands (stood?) for.

He was also a regular and well liked member of "this" community (including the old 3DR boards) for many years. Rather understandably he doesn't post anymore.

I'm convinced that GGGMan takes money.

He got paid by EA to make an Anthem review video, accidentally put the wrong EA watermark at the intro, EA made him delete it so he could reupload it with a fix, and instead he played the victim and acted like it was just because he was negative in the video. Then when EA challenged him he backed down and AFAIK never mentioned it since.

Dude has gone downhill.

Out of curiosity, will Ion Fury be getting its own sub-forum here?

Will definitely check out his review (and other reviews) after I've completed the game, as I'm going in fresh to just play the game and be surprised with what it has to offer. Not much longer now!

Also, he did mention FPS problems (with minor issue still being a thing), watch from 17:35.

My summary of that review: "Ion Fury does what it sets out to do, has fun combat and weapons, but halfway through playing it I decided that I don't actually like retro shooters and I'm going to pretend like that's the game's fault."
