Yeah, but that's essentially an impossibility. Where do levels end? If I decided I just want to blast due west rather than fight bad guys, what happens?
Ignoring that arguably limited case, the bigger issue is having to build levels that include everything. Making a game in a city? Well, you have to model the inside of every building, because I can blast into every building. Is it a skyskraper? Well, I'm blasting a hole straight to the top, then toppling the whole thing, trying to create dominoes, etc.

Sounds awesome, but man, the amount of art hours...

Not necessarily, and keep in mind I'm not an engine programmer. However couldn't you just build a procedurally generated city, with different building biomes, and within them different room biomes. Obviously hand crafting every inch of a city would be impossible, but I think we are going to start seeing more procedurally generated games, even if it's something generated during the development process, then polished.

There are tons of MOBA players out there. LoL has the largest player base of any game out there. DotA2's is pretty large as well and is only growing.

Anyway, the appeal of MOBAs is that they play like team-based, PvP action RPGs. Learning each character, trying out different builds and devising new strategies and tactics is fun. If you aren't competitive, there obviously won't be any appeal since it's multiplayer-only. Also, MOBAs have steep learning curves due to the aforementioned qualities. You'll probably have to play for at least a month before you can become decent.

Thanks for the info.

Does anyone here play MOBA's? What is the appeal, I just don't get why they are so popular these days. This is an honest question, I'm not trying to start an argument. I tried league of legends a long time ago, I want to say maybe 4-5 years, but I could be wrong. I didn't really have any fun, though to be honest I didn't play it very long. Perhaps because I am just not very competitive by nature?

I would like to try this version though, just because I recognize the characters, however it is probably just more of the same.

I take issue with that PA article somehow thinking that game developers are in a unique position, the only people to ever receive insults or threats over the internet. Sure it goes on to mention other public figures but its central focus is game developers. The overall tone of the article suggests Fish took the moral high ground in this situation, and I feel that is certainly not the case.

"It's not about forgetting or forgiving bad behavior, or saying it's okay to lash out at writers or fans"

I think the PA article, while prompted by Phil Fish, is taking a step back from this specific situation. Their point is neither side comes away clean. When you play the game, you are going to get messy. And there's something unsettling about that. Abuse is just a part of the job? Really?

Also, I don't think the article claims that game devs are unique in this kind of abuse. It's a gaming site so obviously that's the focus.

But I think they ARE somewhat unique. The audience for games today is a bit wider in age range than other forms, and people's interaction with the medium make it a little more personal in a way. When the Call of Duty guns were nerfed, the players whose playstyles were affected felt personally singled out. When I'm really playing a game, more than other media, I think of it as "my game", not just a book I'm reading or a show I like.

I never said abuse was just part of the job, in fact quite opposite, I don't think anyone should have to endure that. However abuse is just rampant on the internet, it is a shame, but also the truth.

You can go on Rotten Tomatoes or any other site where opinions are given, and see plenty of people wishing harm or spewing insults on those with a differing opinion. Just go to any news site and look at some of the comments for controversial stories, it isn't pretty.

The overall tone of the article suggests Fish took the moral high ground in this situation, and I feel that is certainly not the case. As others have suggested, he fed off this sort of thing, apparently even before he was 'internet famous', you can see hints of this if you watch Indie Game The Movie.

Now this doesn't mean I approve of him receiving threats, I don't think anyone should be subject to that, but the truth is, that is the internet. A majority of faceless assholes willing to pounce on the slightest misstep, or even nothing, to make themselves feel better.

I am sure everyone here has been insulted and yes probably even threatened on the internet. Is it different when someone knows your name and address, most definitely, but honestly how many cases have there been of someone carrying out a Twitter death threat? Chances are they will probably just do it without bothering to hashtag it first.

As far as this whole Fish thing is concerned, if all game developers responded the same way he did to those kinds of criticisms, well, all the Japanese game developers would be looking for a different line of work.

News Comments > Aliens: Colonial Marines: Stasis Interrupted DLC Released
51. Re: Aliens: Colonial Marines: Stasis Interrupted DLC Released Jul 24, 2013, 23:49 fujiJuice
 
Time for me to chime in with my unwanted and off topic opinion of Aliens 3.

I think it is a very underrated film, especially after watching the unofficial 'directors cut', or whatever it's called. If you own the blu-rays you owe it to yourself to watch the amazingly extensive behind the scenes. It gave me a whole new appreciation for the film, and for the shit Fincher had to put up with during the production. The man is a fantastic director and considering this was his first major motion picture (I believe), and the studio was giving him a hard time with everything, I think it was quite an accomplishment. Sure he might have gone widely over budget and made mistakes and had been difficult to work with, but again, it wasn't easy for him either. It is no wonder he disowns the thing, I don't blame him.

In spite of all that, I think the movie just oozes atmosphere, much more in line with Alien. The movie has quite a few interesting characters, and it is, in my option, cool to see this how the prisoners react to something more cold and violent than themselves. At the same time Ripley is dealing with the loss of both Hicks and Newt, a girl that gave her a chance to be a mother figure again. Also how she learns and accepts the horrible fact that she carries an alien within her, something that she has spent decades running from.

It's probably a mistake to get involved in this argument, but well, here I go.

I think everyone is just reading a bit too much into itBurns comment. I believe he was just stating that the title "season pass", needs work. Like he said, he knew full well he would only be getting 4 DLC, I doubt he feels entitled to anything else. It is just that for people, who
unlike him, are unaware of what "season pass" actually means, it is a bit misleading. Which I agree with, it just needs a more accurate title.

Just my two cents, I'm not here to continue the argument, just thought I could stop one.

A spontaneous collapsed lung sounds like the damned most scary thing I ever heard. Way to give a fellow nightmares... glad you are ok now though. *takes a deep breath with phone nearby*

Ha, it is actually far more common than you would think. I had never heard of it until it happened to me, but the doctors had seen it quite a lot. But thank you for the kind words.

My fond memories of this game include playing on my xbox in my room, with a tremendous pain in my chest. On the insistence of my mother, I went to the doctor the next morning to find out I was walking around with a spontaneously collapsed lung. Needless to say I was rushed to the ER and spent a week in the hospital. Way to go KOTOR!

That twist near the end is pretty big, but I'd never heard of it collapsing a lung before.

Creston

It took my breath away

I know you are joking, but I was in the middle somewhere. If you showed me a video of the whole game I could tell you exactly where, that is how much that night stuck in my memory. I actually didn't finish it until many months later, but yeah great ending.

What would people do anyway? Set modest goals and hamstring themselves? Set ambitious goals and not get funded? It just makes running the whole Kickstarter too much of a ridiculous gamble instead of a simple clean proposition like it is now.

They should set the goal at what they realistically need to do the project, with a buffer for any unexpected problem. Which in my understanding is supposed to be the point of Kickstarter.

As they are so keen to remind people, it is not a store. You are pitching me plan that you have, and how much time and money you will need and why. I am giving you my money because I like your idea and have confidence in your ability to get it done, and would like to help. Just because lots of people want to help doesn't mean you should rape your original objectives.

I would disagree that it is a simple clean proposition the way it currently is. If it was, we wouldn't be having this conversation. Also, almost every single project that I have pledged that exceeded its original goal by a large margin and added a plethora of stretch goals, ends in a mass of confusion among backers once the funding is complete. This is made obvious by the numerous project updates I receive trying to sort it all out.

I think it is totally random, but generally takes 1-3 hours that I have noticed. You get your first card in 5-15 minutes.

I have played Terrerria over 100 hours, and went to play again today, got sucked in building a new house and 5 hours later....I dinged the cards at 4 hours. So who knows.

Other games that I have never played, I got them in an hour. Might have something to do with their system load also.....

After reading this thread, I tried alt-tabbing five card enabled games at once. To my surprise I am indeed collecting cards for all of them, sporadically.

I agree with him. Kickstarter needs to limit over-funding. Anything added in stretch goals that is important to the core game should have been there in the first place. Sure they are getting more money to add 'extra' frills to the game, but they aren't being pledged with more development time in tandem with the money.

I used to be of the mind that Kickstarter should just cut off funding options at about 130% the original goal. However I heard Adam Sessler mention a good idea, pro-rate all the early pledges once the goal is met. Now I don't mean the developer should start losing money, but it could be an incentive to pledge early. Then once more people pledge past the goal reduce the early birds pledge by $5-$10 then stop before they start losing money.
