Its aways funny when they release these "We're sorry" statements in conjuction with "the community is toxic" smartass response.

You're right, people should be totally civilized when they are being robbed and fooled about the quality and polishment of your games. Afterall, devs are humans. Not consumers though, these should shut up, buy products and be thankfull to receive crap they paid for.

Oh and im sure its not all part of the plan to RESELL the classic editions. Hey guys better give us more money or else you get the definitive versions! Fuckers are profiting from their fuckups at both ends.

"sorry we got caught ripping you off with this low effort "remake". What can I say? You love giving us your money LOL! To shut you all up, we'll put the classic versions back in the store so you can give us MORE money!!! What a win win win situation!! And don't shit on GSG. We wouldn't hire them if they were competent!"

"Unexpected"

We just didnt show gameplay of the game and sent review copies earlier because other reasons. We also used a small studio that makes lazy mobile ports using AI to upscale our mobile versions of the games to consoles. Im sure that would show R* seal of quality. After all we shit on devs that make bad ports.

Take-Two CEO and Rockstar Games owner, Strauss Zelnick, has spoken about the importance of ensuring remasters aren't lazy cash grabs. The statement comes as Rockstar gears up to release a remastered version of Grand Theft Auto V later this year and potentially, a rumored remake of the three PS2-era GTA titles as well.

"We have ongoing plans to address the technical issues and to improve each game going forward. With each planned update, the games will reach the level of quality that they deserve to be."

you know what man, no. fuck off. we are tired of this bullshit.

release the game right, the first time, and stop having us buy your broken shit and say youll fix it later

i wont be touching this turd, and if you have any pride or dignity youd ask for a refund. this practice needs to fucking stop. its rampant in the games industry and none of us like it or want it.

Imagine Bluepoint Games given the project and Rockstar shelling out the cash to restore the music licensing.

So console players can go fuck themself for now and PC players can play the classic version they just de listed so thst they could make money?
And the bonus games are only for those thst bought directly from R*?
Fuck you steam users?
Console users have been getting bent over co.pared to how PC is aq5
Oh well, my bad then. Nevertheless: fuck Rockstar, fuck the media for keeping silent to stay on their good side, fuck the paid youtube shills and, most importantly: fuck the gamers that formed.a defence force
This is EVERY AAA game these days ..just about its gross

What's weird about it?
It's pretty weird to refer to yourself as a 30 year old cat lady, but I was just harmlessly making fun of that.

However, thinking the most important part of the address Rockstar put out is "developer harassment" is a joke. We're talking about about a tiny fraction of people doing this. Shills running three fan sites should be way more concerned about Rockstar charging $60 for a shoddy product.

Usual bullshit PR:
-Let's release a shitty unfinished game technically
-Take the money
-Let the bubble implode everywhere
-Let's cook
-Give to our paying slaves usual bla bla bla "not our standard quality" and apologies, and let's pretend that was "unexpected" [ surejan.gif ]
-Then promise to finally finish the game in [undefined] months.

Pathetic.

FUCK.
YOU.

To be fair. Those versions don't exactly all have ports of the original 3 games. Especially the Switch version. Which a lot of people that I know, bought the game on.
On ps4/5 there are ports of all 3 games. Console users get shafted constantly for some reason. We routinely have to pay for ports that are given ut free to previous owners of the original games on PC. Why do we have to pay if we payed for the game, same $ as PC? The reason is because they cam get away with it knowing that there is such a large percentage of casuals who won't complain the way PC crowd will, I guess. Huge double standard!

We have to pay a yearly fee just to play games online for what should be free. Why is there no tier for people who don't want the shitty ps + or xbox gold monthly games and just want to play the games WE bought online? Charge $10 at most for that tier and keep your monthly "free games". Again, they do it because they know we have NO CHOICE and they havnt gotten any real bad press among the corrupt games media for it so they can get away with it.

Another one? The "refund policies" on consoles we all know how bad those are. On PC you can try before you buy and getting a refund is a click away. On Playstation they make you jump through hoops to just ask for a refund before denying it anyway.

Thats the playbook right there! It's disgusting. Will the games media ever grow a backbone and really slam these companies to help get some of this anti gamer bs fixed? Probably not as they havnt in the past unless the ass raping is so bad they know they will get 'clicks' a la Battlefront 2. Cyberpunk, and a couple other disasters that were too big for them to ignore.

The Grand Theft Auto series — and the games that make up this iconic trilogy — are as special to us as we know they are to fans around the world.
Yeah... so special they treated it like shit and used a bad port for the port, removed features and/or never cared to add them back, botched the performance, have no consistency over various platforms in regards of visuals and performance, and removed an amazing atmosphere for a generic Unreal 4 look.

It's wild because this person just makes me think that they pass out verification checkmarks like candy. But then I've seen people (that seem worthy) trying to get verified for years and it never happens. Lmao!

It's a shit remaster that basically got farmed out to a bunch of Indians, you can see in the credits, it was done by basic ass code monkeys. The entire project reeks of: How can we get this done cheaper. which is hilarious cause Mafia 1, 2 got a massive face lift, but these morons who make billions couldn't be arsed to make a proper remake of the three games.
