        Apparently Conan: Exiles was notorious for frequent updates being the same size as the initial download, because they would push all files as the update instead of just the changes and anything related that needed to be changed, no matter how small the changes were.

            I haven't played since before the newest sorcery update, which has apparently overhauled a bunch of mechanics that have been the same or nearly the same since release, so I honestly cannot tell you. From what I'm pretty sure is the same, it was definitely an addicting game despite its janky bullshit at times. You can solo it for your own fun and learning at a comfortable pace, then move on to a pve server, pvp server, or pve-c which allows for combat but doesn't allow anyone to destroy and raid each others bases.

            Protip: Don't put crafting stations next to windows especially if you have a habit of leaving resources in them, they will get stolen.

                Oh nah, I meant other players if you play online. I mentioned it because even in pve servers, there was always a poor bastard who left a bunch of resources they busted their ass to get, just for someone to get near their window and snatch them all. Same can happen even if you build high and they scale your wall and snatch through a window.

          That's not it. When you package a game you can chunk it or keep it whole. If you keep it whole you need to re-download the entire thing since there is only 1 file that changed. Other games use either multiple chunks and push updates on those only OR use a server to host all chunks and when you startup it checks for updates and only updates and mounts those new chunks.
          What happened to Conan just shows that the devs were newbies.

            Thank you for that, I wasn't completely aware that's how it worked. Makes it worse since Exiles was not the first game they made, unless they cleared out their experienced members of their dev team before starting work on Exiles.

      lol no, it's always literally uncompressed PCM in some form or another. The entire point games during the past decade did this was to not spend precious cycles from the shit CPU on PS4 and XBone decoding audio. Even lossless compression requires a bit of processing power to decode.
      This shouldn't be necessary anymore this gen, but we'll not see this end until games stop being crossgen.

      It is believed to be mostly intentional bloat so people are more likely to play their game if they have it installed. The companies say it is because "compressing things makes the quality too low".

        Yes but the idea is that not everyone has even decent internet, especially in america with Cucks network provider being the only option for some. You can become discouraged from deleting a 100-200 GB game off your console/PC to make room for another game because the idea of redownloading all that shit again is tiresome, or straight up not possible if you have bandwith issues

        That was Titanfall, and was because they were targeting very low ends machines (2 logical cores, so they couldn't devote a thread to decompressing audio). They said that on anything but the lowest spec players wouldn't notice a difference (hence why no other games use uncompressed audio).
        Why they decided they had to support such low specs I do not know.

              It literally does not. New COD games are released almost every year, and people don't upgrade instantly, so not having enough room to install the newer game will just make most players avoid it. Games take so much room as we moved from physical to digital, if you installed games in the previous two generations the same issues would occur. A PS5 disc can hold 100GB of data, and a lot of games used to use 2 discs.

          Consoles do hold back PC games (specifically in around the mid 2000's, and possibly now if it weren't for the chip shortage), but storage is not commonly an area that they do (you can always compress assets/lower fidelity as long as they are only a single order of magnitude a part).

    You'll be thankful for the high quality audio and textures when in 20 years that kind of storage space becomes laughable

    Makes it easy to filter the garbage. No game over 20gb footprint is worth installing-- and that's already pushing it to the absolute maximum.

            Same reason: more money than sense. Especially modern luxury cars, holy shit. Literally peak retarded goyim.

            Most luxury cars are retarded purchases, though, unless you have more money than sense or just don't give a fuck.

            Luxury cars are just as stupid as sport cars, when you can't even make full use of its capabilities for typical roads and everyday life. And they completely kneels to off-road travel.

    Most developers should first learn how to publish a mobile game with the restrictions on memory and data.
    I am making a 3d platformer for mobile and I learned the hard way to optimize the game both in terms of cpu/gpu but also space since it maxes out at 2 gb.
