I still need to play the 2nd CoJ. I bought it on one of those flat round things a while back for about $5, but haven't installed it yet.

It's quite linear but the story is immersive with the gameplay to match.

Given Techland's competence up until CoJ2 Im surprised they released such a piece of shit for the 3rd game of the series.

In a holding pattern here as well. So far I am absolutely sure about one thing: I need a new PC. This game is going to beat the shit out of a weak system during beta.

If your rig is 4 yrs old or older, don't bother trying to get in. For laptops, only dedicated gaming systems need apply.

other than that, this looks promising.

I don't know about Gerritsen but Nate Wells (art director) seems nearly irreplaceable. The design and art style of Bioshock and what I've seen of infinite are so well realized that I can't think of many other games that can approach that level of depth.

Yeah, but Nate Wells wasn't the art director of Bioshock, he was a level designer and concept artist. Scott Sinclair was the art director of BioShock, and he's replaced Nate Wells on this. So, if anything, this will make this more BioShockey.


Weird, though, for Rod Fergusson. GoW sells more than BioShock, and was pretty much all him, working with CliffyB but, from what I gather, doing more day to day stuff. Now he's working with Ken Levine as the same role. You'd think, if anything, he'd want to be the big idea guy.

ah ok. thanks for the heads up. The styles were so similar i assumed it was Wells.

This isn't surprising since Episode 3 will be the last of the series. peoples expectations will be very high so a new engine upgrade will be in order.

I doubt they'll be able top the stunning E3 demonstration for Source/HL2
but Valve isnt known for doing anything half-assed so Im sure it'll be impressive.

E3, assuming there's even an E3 and not a HL3, will be the last of the series?

or the end of that particular story arc.

News Comments > Bethesda S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Rumor

former eastern block studios have a completely different way of making games. While much of it comes off as amateurish, they are much less beholden to the bean-counters and tend to go with cool ideas and worry about the logistics later. Obviously this way of making a game is what caused GSC's trouble with getting the game onto the market, but its hard to argue with the results.

I'm sure Bethesda will make a decent product, but I seriously doubt they could ever capture what made the original games special.

The entire point of this thread is too just fuel the rumors and hatred of EA and Battlefield. It was nothing more than a listing error so why keep it open? Why is this even a topic? Oh yea to get more hits to crappy gaming sites that pass it's dribble off as rumors. There is nothing to discuss to be honest. There is no Battlefield 4 for now and the $70 is for the new medal of honor premium.

yeah, Stephen is a real opportunistic dirtbag who is becoming as wealthy as Midas on the backs of poor, clueless kids. Dozey

Holy shit, where do these idiots come from.....

There was no bigger fan of the Battlefield IP than myself. I played BF3 for 10 minutes and uninstalled it. It was simply an expanded version of the Bad Company games. I liked the Bad Company games but expected far more innovation from the original IP. Evidently "innovation" is now interchangeable with the term "micro-transactions" and "DLC".

Pretty lofty thing to say given there was 0 actual gameplay in this video

theres a shit-ton of gameplay media on youtube. Community guy "TotalBiscuit" recorded several hours worth from the E3 floor, not to mention the officially released sruff.

Lastly, this is the same team that did PS1.....the greatest game ever.

Is Dave "Smokejumper" Georgeson still with them? I thought he had left?

I liked PS1 alot, was in the beta, played for the first few months it was up. Looking forward to this. Free is even better.

I beleive Dave came in at a later date in the games development. I don't beleive he's there now. While I thought he was a great producer, he seems to not be a favorite among other devs who have worked under him and especially the crew at TribalWar.com (they felt he was responsible for "ruining" their beloved IP)

he was responsible for Tribes 2 and Heavy Gear 2, some of the finest games of the late 90's to early 2k's (IMHO)
