If that's actually true that Noclip is bound to Y (Which I'm sure it is because of this fucking developer build fuckup), that's absolutely fucking hilarious.

It's rife with huge game breaking bugs. I really want to like this game but it's just unplayable when it's being killed by lag/memory leaks.

The worst part is, everything was for a while. It finished decrypting the files and I invited my friend to join the game, we played for a bit but then one of us had to d/c, had various problems that make the game unplayable ever since.

It's not such a huge mistake that they released the debug build instead of the release build. It just means that they forgot to switch to release build environment in Visual Studio, and it's still the same game whether it's the debug or release build.

The only thing that's different is that the debug build is compiled in such a way that it makes it easy for the developers to see what code the program is executing and what's contained in variables. I guess it makes it easier for malicious users to reverse-engineer the code though.

Noclip being bound to Y is fucked up though.

Sometimes the shit storm never settles down.

DA2, for example. To this day /v/ has a seething hatred of bioware because of that game. /v/ now retroactively hates all bioware games (ME 1, 2, KOTOR 1, Baldurs gate, etc) and calls them all horrible shit.

because when a game is advertised a lot and is supposed to be something good and new, it feels great when it turns out to be a piece of shit like most people expected without being sure yet.

Personally, my hope is that some developers actually browse /v/ and realize that pumping out shitty games is not reccomended unless you have activision on your back

Developers keep having pretty cool ideas for new games but they screw up hard when it comes to gameplay and mechanics: eventually theyll realize that "retarded" doesnt imply "good for everyone"
