The Morning Papers | DriveClub Compensation, Dangerous Decisions

Good morning!

Today brings us the news that performance problems can't stop a game from selling, with Assassin's Creed Unity debuting at a strong second in the UK charts. DriveClub and Halo: The Master Chief Collection are getting less broken by the day, with Sony willing to hand out some throwaway content packs by way of apology, while Elite Dangerous has now been broken ahead of launch thanks to the bizarre decision to remove its offline mode.

Seriously, as practically every new game launches with server or connectivity problems, Dave Braben decides to force players to use them in a game that worked perfectly fine offline on the freaking Amiga. Yes, I was a bit too young for the BBC Micro. Here are your headlines.

well that's a slap in the face (elite) glad i didn't decide to order this last week. why would they do this apart from its part of there vision bull they posted. you look at huge game company's that did this and most of them had huge problems with servers etc, so what chance does a small company like this have, what happens if they go bust, servers go down. at least if you had a off line mode you could play it, also didn't they say when they asked for backers that IT WOULD have a offline mode. and to leave the announcement to so near launch just smells fishy.

Disappointed with the elite dangerous news but at least we know before we have wasted our money on it. Hope those who pre ordered can get a refund.
It feels like games companies incompetence is saving me a lot of money lately. Just hope they don't F'up GTA V for PC.
