Admin Prime : (20 December 2014 - 12:38 PM) There's not many people playing the beta at all right now. It's actually the beta preview, which lasts this weekend. Only people with access are Xbox Preview members, press, and pro players. Full beta starts on the 29th, and lasts until the 19th, so 3 weeks.
Admin Prime : (20 December 2014 - 12:38 PM) With the full beta MCC players get access.
Lame Plant42 Lame : (20 December 2014 - 12:51 PM) @fooshie, I played it demo and I didn't really like it. Don't forget that you can download demos, lol :P
Lame Plant42 Lame : (20 December 2014 - 12:52 PM) @premme, damn, I thought that the beta would last for like 1-3 months.
Admin Prime : (20 December 2014 - 01:44 PM) 1-3 months? What made you think that? 3 weeks is already crazy long for a console beta.
Admin Prime : (20 December 2014 - 01:48 PM) Honestly though I have a feeling there will be another beta. They keep calling it the "Arena Beta", and it focuses entirely on arena maps and 8 player gameplay, no big team or anything. Plus, the beta starts nearly a year before launch and a lot of changes are expected based on feedback. I bet we'll see a summertime big team beta, that will also feature changes inspired by the first beta.
Lame Plant42 Lame : (20 December 2014 - 02:43 PM) i thought betas were a few months long on average. They don't make betas for good games, so I didn't know much aboyt them.
Admin Prime : (20 December 2014 - 03:13 PM) Only on PCs, where it's a very different system.
Admin Prime : (20 December 2014 - 03:17 PM) On PC, betas are usually the full software, just released in unfinished form, with the "end date" being whenever the final build is released. On consoles it's only ever a slice of the game, in a separately packaged build, that lasts over a more finite period, and usually exists for server/net-code stress test purposes and to spot bugs that require live release conditions and high player counts to test. Three weeks is pretty much the cap for a beta on consoles, and most last only a few days.
Admin Prime : (20 December 2014 - 03:18 PM) Halo 5's is longer, and much, MUCH earlier in development than other betas, so that they can take user feedback on pretty much everything and anything, down to major gameplay mechanics that normally would never change.
Admin Prime : (20 December 2014 - 03:20 PM) Generally the difference on PC and consoles comes down to development team size. A lot of smaller PC developers do full-scale beta releases (ESPECIALLY now with Steam's pre-release system) as basically a free means of product testing. They have to do full, open releases because they can't afford a shit-ton of testers.
Lame Plant42 Lame : (20 December 2014 - 04:21 PM) "much, MUCH," as in H5 is a 2016 game?
Admin Prime : (20 December 2014 - 05:12 PM) No, November 2015.
Admin Prime : (20 December 2014 - 05:12 PM) Earliest console beta I've ever seen was less than half as far from release.
Ngamer01 : (20 December 2014 - 05:14 PM) Heya. Is Miiverse down for anyone? I'm getting error 121-1500 on 3DS and Nintendo's site has no information on the network status and the error page just says it may be a problem with my internet.
Admin Prime : (20 December 2014 - 05:14 PM) Used to be 4-5 months prior on average, and usually now-a-days it's just a couple weeks or even days.
Admin Prime : (20 December 2014 - 05:14 PM) miiverse.nintendo.net isn't loading for me.
Ngamer01 : (20 December 2014 - 05:15 PM) This is the error message: Error 121-1500; "The Miiverse system is currently experiencing an error."
Admin Prime : (20 December 2014 - 05:15 PM) nvm, it did
Ngamer01 : (20 December 2014 - 05:16 PM) I guess 3DS Miiverse is down. Web Miiverse is up. I'll check Wii U Miiverse now...
Ngamer01 : (20 December 2014 - 05:17 PM) Wii U Miiverse is up.
Ngamer01 : (20 December 2014 - 05:18 PM) Ok, I got 3DS Miiverse now. I guess it was just a temporary problem. All good now hopefully.
Ngamer01 : (20 December 2014 - 05:38 PM) Oh, cool. Got a bunny balloon from a streetpass'd mayor in New Leaf.
Admin Prime : (20 December 2014 - 05:41 PM) Oh shit, I forgot we still have a new stage coming to Smash U, the Miiverse stage.
Ngamer01 : (20 December 2014 - 05:44 PM) To think in 5 days will mark a year since I first started playing New Leaf. o.O
Ngamer01 : (20 December 2014 - 05:46 PM) I wish I could have gotten New Leaf back in 2013 when most of CS was still playing it. <.<
Ngamer01 : (20 December 2014 - 06:00 PM) Huh. Lyman dropped by Club LOL tonight.
Ngamer01 : (20 December 2014 - 06:01 PM) KK is playing KK Salsa tonight. I already have the bootleg though.
Ngamer01 : (20 December 2014 - 06:09 PM) There. Done with New Leaf for today.
Ngamer01 : (20 December 2014 - 06:21 PM) Well I'm taking off. Later.
