Goddammit, i'm so fucking angry right now... first the microtransaction bullshit and now this.
EA isn't even lying anymore. they might as well make a game thats basicly a flashmovie of EA's CEO John Riccitiello raping your wallet and name it "Give us your fucking money" and charge $60 for just looking at the motherfucking box.

I can't back it anymore. I stopped backing it a few months after it got released cause I was expecting a really awesome game, and it WAS for a second, but then it all went downhill.
I will say I'm very satisfied by the amount of free DLC they've released so far.

As for the console and PC crap. People just really need to realize the PC isn't the main focus of much anymore, and it's been like that since a looooong time now. So just get used to bad ports, or ports with consoles in mind.

It's not fair, sure, but there's nothing we can really do except petition so hardcore that devs either start to release rushed ports with more 'options' but more bugs just to satisfy us, or stop releasing ports at all.

That being said- adapt if at all possible. Or miss out.

Sylux

Or just play BF3 which was designed for PC and ported to consoles. Plus we've got all the TES games and their extensive mods that console-only gamers dream of.

GunZet
01-30-2013, 04:44 AM
I got BF3 on PC. Still prefer Bad Company 2 in all aspects, just sayin'.

Also I got my hands on the Crysis 3 open Beta for PC, and the multiplayer may be faster than expected, and it may feel a bit easy, but oh my goodness is it -FUN-. Hit registration is the fuckin' best I've seen in a game in a long time. My bullets actually HIT SHIT!
The graphics ain't too shabby either, there're only minor improvements over Crysis 2, but it runs wayyy smoother than Crysis 2, and the advanced graphics options seem to actually 'work' this time around.

I think I may have to get Crysis 3, but I'm still on the fence until I play more.

Chivalry got its first content update and it's awesome. Quarterstaff is my new favorite weapon. I initially picked it because I thought it might be non-lethal, but then in my first duel I jabbed a guy in the face and his head blew up.

I feel like they're focusing less on realism now and more on fun.

Some dumb things they didn't fix:
-When the game says "The queen and her sons have been murdered," there's still no sign of the queen. Also, the nobles in line for the throne are all dressed like peasants and not a single one knows how to defend himself.

-Even on the lowest detail settings, there's still too much unnecessary background detail that, if removed, would allow players with lower-end computers to play.

-They didn't fix their spelling and grammar mistakes.

I thought I was gonna wait for Smash Bros 4 before buying a Wii U, but now there's this:

I'm imagining Fire Emblem's tactical movement and such, but with more player-driven combat like in Persona (or maybe even Arena--I've always wanted a Fire Emblem fighter).

I'm actually hoping for an Overgrowth-style combat system:

Technoligically superior, graphically superior, but not completely superior in every way. There's just some games you wanna either play on a console, or use a controller with.
It's preference and opinion really. Nobody's forcing anyone to convert to anything, you know.

I say as long as the port -works- good, and doesn't look worse than the console version, I can care less for all the other options, but that's just me. The first Mass Effect was a horrrrrible port, you couldn't get that game to look good if you didn't go in and edit the game ini all to hell, because it was streaming the textures wrong. Ugh.

I'm actually pretty sick of persona and I didn't see any persona characters in that trailer. I hope they go back to the old style of SMT game which makes a lot more sense if they're combining it with an inherently oldschool series like fire emblem.

Totally awesome to see the first hero and the nocturne hero though.

Amen, brother. UT2K4 is still my all-time favorite FPS. Such a fun, fun, fun, fun game. I thought UT3 was quite good, but not UT. I mean, really a big part of what I loved about UT2K4 was the acrobatic nature of it all. Ever played Unreal Championship 2 on Xbox?

I played UT3 online once since getting broadband. I prefer bots and LAN, if only because bots don't have usernames like [CLANTAG1][CLANTAG2][CLANTAG3]$UP4L337PWN3R48[CATCHPHRASE].

Bots feel more human than humans in UT3. There, I said it.

You might want 2 learn the shorthand.

SS/Mia/Care/Missing <name> all mean that person is missing and thus you should be careful specifically if you've pushed the lane so far.

If somebody tells you to buy a chicken they mean courier.

Idk if you know what lane you're supposed to pick yet. Usually they tell you in a guide which one your character is good at. Just head there as soon as you buy your shit. If you get stuck in a bad lane then you can ask to switch but of course not everyone will want to unless they are also getting shit on.

Also if your lane partner is pushing the lane stand back cuz u about to get ganked

If anyone gets in your face tell them to take a dump and go to sleep. To this day nobody has been able to respond to that. If they are legitimately trying to help you though you should probably take their advice.

On something game related;
I was playing Dead Space 3 last night when one of the 'fun' enemies to run from in the first and second games (the Hunter) became one of the most annoying fucking things ever in a Dead Space game- not counting that horrible asteroid segment in DS1.

Anyways, they sent about two or three hunters after me at a time. One of them decided 'fuck this' and glitched out.
You're usually able to blow the limbs off a hunter, but this one just took every shot... So I hit it with stasis and ran while screaming various profanities at the sudden bullcrap.

EA fucked up at the initial release for PC players.
Everyone who pre-ordered the game and was pre-loading it on Origin found that after or sometimes during their download, Crysis 3 would just poof from their inventory, and ask you to activate it.
You'd then put in your code and it would say it was already in use. So nobody could immediately play the game, lol.

Anyways, they fixed it pretty quick.

These and the fact that you will be able to play nearly every playstation title on the ps4 via streaming makes this really tempting for me. Microsoft is really going to have to step it up to keep me from switching teams.

Watched the whole thing earlier, and tbh it was exactly what I was expecting.
The new gen of consoles finally catching up to the PC capabilities of yester-year with the bonus of newer bells and whistle technologies.
Also they never showed the console. Wtf, Sony. Show us the controller, not the console? Dirty.

I did find the Killzone 4, Infamous 3, and Watchdog presentations to be pretty badass. But more specifically Killzone.

But on the other hand I think they're adding in some really stupid gimmicks, particularly the PS4 sculpting. Really? It looks great concept-wise, but you're selling a gaming system, not a creative suite.

That's just my thoughts on it, you can bet your ass Microsoft's unveiling will be riding Epic's junk due to having no new flagship titles for a few years (Halo. Except for Watchdogs and Destiny, which they'll apparently share), plus Unreal Engine 4 (which was also seen in the PS4 reveal)
That means they'll basically be starting from scratch unlike Playstation 4 which already has a few announced heavy hitters.

They didn't show the console because they have to save something for E3. (http://kotaku.com/5985824/why-didnt-we-see-the-actual-playstation-4-tonight-sonys-boss-explains)

I feel like the sculpting is just them still trying to appeal to the casual gamer, which they should realize Nintendo is king of and no one else should bother messing with it.

Yeah, that's what has me worried about Microsoft. The odds of them having any exclusive is slim, so they'll probably just be showing a new call of duty or something :/

GunZet
02-21-2013, 12:24 AM
That's what everyone gets for rushing out new games towards the END of a gen. It's like going out and buying a new phone that won't support the apps for the newest model released the next day.
What Sony lacks in quantity, it makes up in numerous IPs, while MS has plenty of quantity, they're in a position right now where they're basically launching a new Nintendo system with no new Mario or Zelda games, lol.

Let's see who they get to be the backup face to kick things off. And PLEASE don't let it be CoD.

I'm fairly certain CoD will be one of the games, they always show off the new CoD at E3 on the xbox.

But I'm really hoping they'll be showing a forza 5 too, maybe they'll get to show off a little bit more of Destiny too.
Maybe there'll be some kind of miracle and Half Life 3 will release on PC and Xbox, so they'll be able to use that in their reveal. LOL yeah right.

EDIT: Also the prospect of being able to play any PS4 title on the vita is really enticing. I'm wondering if it's just within range of the PS4 or you could do it anywhere, my guess is the former but it's still pretty neat.

GunZet
02-21-2013, 01:35 AM
I'm gonna bet they'll be showing gameplay of either Modern Warfare 4, or Battlefield 4 and Destiny. Unless MS has some kind of sleeper IP ace in the hole, Sony's left them in a tight spot.

I'm glad the next Infamous doesn't just
resurrect Cole
and starts a completely new story instead. The anti-establishment tone makes me yawn a bit, but I'm pretty sure Sucker Punch can handle it better than most.

Also, on an unrelated note, I'm getting a bit frustrated with Chivalry after playing it for nearly a hundred hours. Dumb bugs and horrible imbalance are finally taking their toll. If Stoneshill was the only map in TO rotation, I think I might be happier with it. All the rest--especially Hillside and Citadel--have major balance issues.

I had faith while you guys did 4 s and left...:cat_hmp:

About the new PS4, it's totally awesome (except the diablo III port) but i'm kinda worried about this "accessibility" thing. Do I really need to have super fast internet access all the time in order to play stuff? I somehow think getting this thing is going to clean out my pockets every month.
Speaking of cleaning out pockets, i'm kinda paranoid about Destiny. It sounds like that's exactly what it's designed to do (still doesn't make it any less awesome)

But on the other hand I think they're adding in some really stupid gimmicks, particularly the PS4 sculpting. Really? It looks great concept-wise, but you're selling a gaming system, not a creative suite.
I guess sony always wants to push it's platform on all sides and appeal to every single person in the world. that's why they want everyone to think that their stuff can do any kind of entertainment tech's job. it was the same with the vita and all it's smartphone like apps.

On new games. I bought XCOM: Enemy Unknown yesterday. Having never played any of the older games, and probably thankful for it (so I don't become one of those rabid fans of the old that can't handle change), I can say this is one of my favorite turn-based strategy games of recent years.

Ya, the "game play" doesn't look like gameplay, which bring the disbelief, but it looks pretty cool none the less, and if its close to Dragon's Dogma combat, it would be rad.

Anyway, I also like that the sword moves are like actual sword attacks (Warrior actually using both hands with his sword, 1:12 looks like german furios strike, 1:18 stab is in Ox). And the armors looks rad (nothing like shitty fantasy armors).

The whole point of the deep down video was to show off their new engine, there would be no point in lying about it :/
During gameplay the graphics probably won't be that good, since the system will have to process a lot more information during gameplay, but it should be close.

GunZet
02-27-2013, 07:22 PM
I don't doubt that's just an exhibit of an engine, whatever engine it was (I forgot). What I'm getting at is how much of that stuff is indeed a 'lie'. This is what most devs do when they show off an engine. They have all this stuff, and eventually only half of what you see during demonstration ends up in the game, bringing up the question- how much of this is possible during gameplay without having to cut out other features to make the FPS stable?

I'm seeing the same stuff with UE4. It's kinda like this.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-m4pe6UAS2M

Features in Gears of War 2 are widely absent from Gears of War 3, and it's because they tapped into other features of the engine, but in gameplay as a whole, it couldn't handle all of them at once. So it's pick and choose.

You can LP anything as long as you don't suck. Quantity cannot mask quality, so as long as your material is top-notch, it won't go unnoticed by those who can take the time to watch it. That being said, I've sort of personally gotten myself into a trap with LPs. All the games I play I LP, so I can't play them unless I'm prepared to record. The only games I can play without recording are Minecraft, Skyrim, and Firefall, and that's just because Firefall is a non-linear MMO.

I'm gonna hold off on Tomb Raider for now. While I'm interested in the writing, from what I've read, it looks like half the dev team wanted a survival game and the other half wanted an action game and they compromised badly.

My ideal game is pretty much Don't Starve + Skyrim. I was kinda thinking Tomb Raider would fit in there for awhile before I saw the gameplay.

Regantor
03-11-2013, 12:17 AM
It's odd that nobody has done the survivalist thing properly in full 3D, really...

I mean, Skyrim/Fallout 3 get sorta close, but you are still in a really full world full of questy quests. You literally can't starve even then. Metal Gear Solid 3 comes really close, with trapping proper animals and food and hiding from superior enemies and all sorts, yet the story still gets in the way.

Perhaps Minecraft is the closest example? It's certainly the only reason I can think of it as a good game, despite the general lack of content... DayZ is another one, I guess, come to think of it?... They are both only really "close enough in lack of anything else" examples, mind.

But anyway. Yeah. Somebody should do that.

Dwarf Fortress' adventure mode, with skyrimmy graphics, plz.

GunZet
03-11-2013, 12:23 AM
Don't Starve is pretty much the only game I've played that has basically nailed that feeling of needing to survive day by day, and absolutely needing the necessary supplies. You also have to hunt, but sometimes you end up being the hunted. Night time is also an enemy you have to fight against, and if you don't- you die.

It's not fully 3D, but yea. If you want a game where you can starve in a few days, and basically fear for your/ the character's life day by day, Don't Starve is for you.

Yeah Tomb Raider is a survival game for the first half an hour or so, where you have to make camp and hunt, but after that you never really have to do any of that again unless you want extra experience :/

But then again the Tomb Raider series has never been a survival game, and I think going completely in that direction would have irked some fans of the series. If you enjoy playing Uncharted, you will really enjoy Tomb Raider. In my opinion the game play is much more polished and diverse than Uncharted, although Uncharted still wins in story, writing, and characters.

But then again the Tomb Raider series has never been a survival game, and I think going completely in that direction would have irked some fans of the series. If you enjoy playing Uncharted, you will really enjoy Tomb Raider. In my opinion the game play is much more polished and diverse than Uncharted, although Uncharted still wins in story, writing, and characters.

A friend of mine is a really tomb raider fan and this game has destroyed his dreams. Basically he is angry because there are not enough puzzles and the game is basically a Uncharted copy.

Yeah there aren't a tone of puzzles, the majority of them - along the main story - are towards the end. There are hidden tombs that you can seek out that generally have a puzzle or two that you solve, then reward you with salvage and xp. I think this game was meant to spend more time shaping Lara as a character - having her go from a bookish, college graduate to a dual-pistol wielding bad ass -, and any sequels will be more tomb/puzzle focused and less kill all the people.
But even if it doesn't I won't really mind because shooting people with napalm arrows is fun.

I was really first put off for a long time by the developers talking about a 'hollywood experience' so much, really. Gave it a go recently anyway. Okay, but definitely not the game changer that Edge magazine was raving about. The gameplay is really quite shallow and some of the mechs are very lazily modeled considering how much everything costs (and this is coming from a massive maschinen krieger (http://farm1.staticflickr.com/107/308241131_ebee4ad74d.jpg) fan)...

But it's fun in an ascended unreal mod sort of way, I guess.

I'll be honest, when I first played it, I immediately thought of CoD with mechs. I know everything gets compared to CoD now, but... every time I mention CoD and another game, I'm just being honest, lol.

It looks kinda interesting, but eh, I dunno. Too bad there isn't a wiki or something yet, 'cause it's kinda hard to tell exactly how much the game has in it.

Do you start with much stuff? Are the rules unfair if you just try to sit and defend? Are there even many people playing it yet? How good or crappy are the ones that do?...

jubeh
03-15-2013, 03:25 PM
Do you start with much stuff?

You have your family members, a vault, and 2000 bucks to spend on defense. A wooden wall is 10 bucks, but a power source is 200. Dogs are 200. Basically you start out pretty weak because you need an incentive to rob people.


Are the rules unfair if you just try to sit and defend?

You cannot actually be in your house while its being robbed, and an occupied house can't be invaded. There are instances where a triggered trap will stay on and thus a house becomes "unrobbable" but if the owner wants to make any changes at all they'll have to reset it. So if you find a seemingly impenetrable house, it means that person is probably afk or has stopped playing.

You actually have to prove your house is 'fair' by robbing it yourself without the use of tools. This means you can't just bury your vault behind 100 concrete walls. This leads to houses being more maze like with a lot of decoy doors leading to traps and stuff, as opposed to you drilling through wall after wall in search of a vault.


Are there even many people playing it yet? How good or crappy are the ones that do?...

The server browser always has dudes to invade, though nobody has very much money. I'm not sure how the game will even out economically, but I've found some houses to be rougelike dungeons where I die with a single misstep and some to be cakewalks.

This one guy had a swarm of pitbulls, and in traditional roguelike fashion you take turns moving. Well his house was a series of doors and every step I took the closer I was to being attacked so I had to choose a door and just hope it was the one with the vault. The door I opened lead to a room filled with even more guard dogs.

Some dudes are really fucking good at defending. Like when you look at the server browser (ie the list of houses you can rob) it'll show how many people invaded and how many people died doing so. If the number of deaths is even marginally close to the number of invasions then that house is really unsafe.

I should mention if you die while robbing its game over completely. You have to start with a new house, family, everything.

Going to check it out once I have &#163;4 to my name. Kinda reminds me of dwarf fortress, with both fortress and adventure mode melded into one. Well, and human opponents, too.

Kinda more sinister in a way, that you never actually get to meet your enemies in person. >_>

...Erm, played Hawken a little more...

Gotta admit, it's growing on me. At first I thought it was the pay-to-win mechs which made it so hard; But it isn't, it's the leveling up system which is kinda bull. And the fact that you have to pay game money for paint. But yeah. It's actually perfectly possible to hold your own in the starting mecha after you reach around about the seventh level, and I realized after I could finally buy a second mecha that it's pretty much the same story but with some tweaked gameplay. It's not pay to win, it's grind to win.

The dilemma, I guess, is that playing as a jerk seems to be the only way that pays off. Shooting people who are trying to repair, or waiting for your pursuers around corners are the bread and butter of this game. At least if you don't want a one-to-one kill ratio.

Is that a good thing or a bad thing? My mind is still not entirely made up.

This is an important thing to me because I have extremely poor reflexes and aim and need to find other ways to be successful at shooting games. You're making the same discovery because the starter weapons in hawken are shit.

GunZet

I'm able to use the microwave mech with the starter weapons and come out on top most of the time with ease, and I hardly run away, instead I haul ass into a fight and jump-jet over other mechs while I'm chipping off their armor with the assault rifle, and dealing heavy damage with the TOW. The only things that are really a threat to me are the heavy mechs with fucking 1-hit shotguns and homing missiles.

I'm just sayin', you don't even have to run away in Hawken, just be aggressive because you know everyone else will try to run away, lol.

But the starter weapons still are shit, and look like it too.
