It was a moral choice if you wanted to steal from people who really needed the money or not. Only difference was that there isn't a blue/red choice associated with it like Mass Effect/Infamous.

The Zero Punctuation review totally stripped all interest I had in this game. Still though, good on them for providing what is now an uncommon practice.

Yahtzee is the last person I would trust when it comes to giving an unbiased and fair review.

To me the way he framed the review as if he actually believed that the entire game would play like Outlast is dishonest. No person would come to that conclusion unless they were willfully ignorant on the game.

Bethesda showed the entirety of chapter 9 on youtube multiple times before release and it showed exactly how the game would play. Also, if you watched the trailers for it you would know too.

His main complaints seemed to be that the story doesn't make much sense and made the world seem disjointed and that the stealth was pasted on.

Stealth is an integral part of the game, especially if you play on nightmare or akuma difficulty. It was actually one of the parts of the game that I enjoyed the most. If you expect to walk in and just start blasting everything without trying to be a little sneaky before ch 6 you'll be in for a rude awakening. As a matter of fact, you can even stealth during the majority of the boss fights and it was actually useful to do so if you wanted to try alternate strats.

As for the plot, I rather enjoyed it and also enjoyed the variety of scenery. Each chapter brings you to a whole new area and set piece, this kept the game fresh for me and helped me enjoy the 19hrs it took to beat it. The downside is that you never felt like you were part of the real world, but of course that is also part of the story

So yes, you never get to feel like you understand an area like the space station in Alien Isolation. But you also never have to backtrack the same areas over and over and you are treated to new sights and sounds every step of the way. To me, interesting variety in scenery is much more important in a shooter.

Also, his comment that 99% of the combat begins with the enemy ambushing you is COMPLETE bunk and discredits his opinion of the game to me. The vast majority of the combat, heck even whole chapters are presented like mini sandboxes and allows you to approach it however you like.

So Wetwork24, you never did answer my question. What affiliation do you have with this game?

And from most of the reviews I've read about this game, Monster Closets (aka Ambushing) is a HUGE part of this game. Along with horrible controls, camera views, textures, performance, etc etc etc.


Keep on selling this game Wetworks, your boss would be proud.

It comes down to the computer rig. Have a friend who has a high end computer and Watch Dogs was super sexy, but again at a price.

It's crap. Go read the reviews. It suffers from so many bad things. And don't believe a single word Wetworks24 says. He's been schilling it as a survival horror game.

Bad controls, bad textures, framerate issues, have to tweak the hell out of it to get rid of annoying crap like the letterboxing. Do some googling and you'll see it should be avoided until a 5 dollar steam sale.

I've been playing on and off and so far the only thing I've done is courier missions. I have no clue where to go to purchase upgrades for my ship.

And the Thrustmaster-T-Flight-Hotas-Flight-Playstation-3 that was suggested works wonderfully for it.

I remember reading an article last year about either FBI or Police Dept's that have to go through cases that deal with child abuse or deal with exploitation of children on the inter and some of the crap they have to deal with.

Not an easy job, and my hat's off to them.

There was a updated graphics version of Xwing and Tie Fighter that was released on CD that had everything except Xwing Alliance (hope that comes to GoG as well).

This game is coming along nicely. Lets hope its more substance than hype though but they seem to be prety confident they have a winner on their hands. Also compare the specs of this 'alpha' build to the 'release candidate' build of Assasin's Creed Unity for some perspective on how to code for the PC.

Is it really a surprise that next gen games actually need more hardware then the previous generation? Then why wouldn't the spec's increase as well, even if a PC port?

Here's a gameplay vid.

Thank you for that.

Couple of questions (in the prototype) can I repair the holes or close hatches to seal off sections?

NVidia is trying to force Geforce Experience install on people by not including per-game DSR options into its control panel.

If this keeps up, I'll be bouncing back to an ATI card next time.

Or like me, just don't install the Geforce Experience when you upgrade drivers

It's sad she feels this way, because she's been great for gaming in general

So why has she been great for gaming? She's leveraged gamers into having an acting career (when she isn't an above average actress). This move of hers has done more harm to gamers than anything positive I can think of she's accomplished.

Any what the fuck have you accomplished? Did you even read the article because all you're doing is reading into it what you want to get out of it, instead of reading the words she typed.
Do you even know what the fuck the word leverage means? She created a web series that took off and with it more acting opportunities for herself. Every actor out there started somewhere.

Hey Neilsouth, how about you quit promoting your own website on Blues? It's bad form.
