I have to agree with Flatline there is way too much speculation and blind trust in Roberts Space Industries.

This gameplay trailer showed us bad animations, terrible AI, ugly GUI, and blurry textures and Gerratt as nothing but a thug murderer. This game was not designed to appeal to people who liked the first 3 2 .

Even 3 was not as bad as what I saw in this one...

Changed that around just for the sake of argument. Pretty much the exact same shit everyone said about DXHR.

Just saying people shouldn't give up all hope... YET.
Point taken. I hope I'm proven wrong of course.

Batman looks exactly the same as the second one. Come on, how many times do we have to see the same thing. Event he GUI is identical and the gadgets look identical, the move set even. It's like they didn't even rework the textures. Both Batmans were great but this is just like a developer coasting on the success of the previous games and changing the level layout and adding a few more enemies and different cutscenes. It's look like an EA sports game. Looks like they took literally all the assets, textures, and animations from Rocksteady.

I find Diablo style games extremely repetitive and thus boring. Does it have a story that keeps you wanting to find out what happens next?

This review does not pull any punches:
http://nzgamer.com/pc/reviews/1868/orion-dino-horde.html

They ripped off assets from primal rage and they ripped off assets from natural selection and fired employees and they rebranded the shit that was called orion dino beatdown now as orion dino horde.

It's a steaming pile of shit.

Actually, Anita took some of the criticisms of thunderf00t and addressed them in the 2nd video. I suggest you watch thunderf00t video response to her first video and then watch her 2nd video and you will see I'm correct. You have to give her props for actually addressing some of his criticisms.

Well I think this is good for PC gaming since both the PS4 and Xbox One are x86 and very close to off the shelf PC game hardware which will make porting so much easier to the PC. No doubt there will be more paid exclusives but also maybe a few more quality ports (I hope the quality of ports decreases).

Also no solid state drives for ps4 nor xbox one? I now that will raise the costs but come on, once you go solid state drive for your game installations, you don't ever want to go back.

I'm not the slightest bit religious, but I have way more respect for people who are and leave others alone instead of the assholes who think criticizing them is somehow enlightening.

I stopped being surprised at just how much religious bigotry exists on the Internet long ago, and Bluesnews is definitely no exception, but I agree wholeheartedly with the quoted portion of Mad Max's post.

I'll be the first to bash a Christian who gets on his or her moral superiority high horse on things like sex, drinking, or gay marriage, but a guy who happens to proudly avail himself of his religious denomination while reviewing games is not an affront to anybody, and all this unwarranted scorn and mockery serves to make those who consider themselves enlightened or intellectually superior appear just the opposite.
I'm going to have to disagree here, I don't believe there are any ideas who are justifiably free from criticism and it's important to understand that criticism does not imply bigotry. Whether someone gets on their high horse or not, has nothing to do with how justified their beliefs and knowledge claims are. If Ted Bundy criticized my beliefs or knowledge claims, those criticisms stand or fall on their justification, totally independent of who is making them (in this case Ted Bundy a convicted serial killer).

Overon: Well said.

ItBurns: Tell me you're kidding me? Don't go all Mass Effect on us :O

I find it hilarious how the first poster got that "hate speech!" reply, with Blues even saying he felt like deleting the post. It's fucking ridiculous.

People deserve respect, their religion and ideas do not. Exactly like Overon said. When a person tells me he believes in a talking snake, I laugh in his face. There's no crime in ridiculing religion. If you ask me, it's high time to do so.

I do believe we're JUST machines. Are you religious or do you believe in a soul or something? I mean, it's not far fetched or strange.

I don't believe anything. I go for knowing. I know humans as well as other animals have feelings, both physically and mentally. I know machines have not. Ergo destroying, damaging or raping a robot is different than doing that to humans.

Philosophical bedrock right here.
Knowledge is a subset of belief. So you do believe things, the question is how well those beliefs are justified or how justified you are in your knowledge claims

Wikipedia defines bigotry as "a state of mind of a bigot: someone who, as a result of their prejudices, treats other people with hatred, contempt, and intolerance on the basis of a person's race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, language, socioeconomic status, or other status."
It's a weird definition. Notice that race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, socialeconomic status are largely IMMUTABLE characteristics, yet religion, a set of ideas, are not largely IMMUTABLE, stands out like a sore thumb. One thing is not like the others. Also religion is a position and ideas not any kind of status. Therefore I don't think what the first poster said qualifies as religious bigotry. Was it means-pirited, maybe. I believe humans deserve respect, their ideas however, do not. And religious ideas qualify. They are not immutable just as my ideas on the best economic system do not deserve special respect because they are just ideas, they have no feelings to hurt. Though I may not call people wingnuts for tactical reasons because usually name calling shuts down any conversation with them and results in mean spirited discussion.

I disagree with the reviewer because I think though he said he enjoyed the game, he could not recommend it for "moral reasons." I disagree with him, it is not unethical to kill in a virtual environment. But I see that many Christian denominations believe people can commit "sin" aka act immorally even with their thoughts, so I can understand from his perspective where he is coming from even though I think "thought crimes" is an absurd notion.

P.S.
When would a robot be worthy of ethical consideration?

I'm fairly sure Tripwire stated they would add additional tanks to RO2 but they don't appear they will do that.

Looks like a typical 3rd person console game. I think the animations are awkward looking and the textures are poor. The poor textures are perfect for a game designed for consoles lack of graphics memory in mind. Is this cell shading? That's a good way to not have to create high resolution textures. I hope the narrative is good that makes people want to play through to the end.
