They've had years...and no excuses.

Sure they do. It'd be years in which they their programmers do nothing but create an entire new mod framework. That's years where they're not doing other stuff.

Of course, not to mention that their monstrous mod community would then have to learn a completely new engine.

And for what? So that the five "OMG TEH GRAPHICS AREWNT THE BESTESTTT!!!" people would buy it?

I fail to see the point. Their fans will still buy it and enjoy it, despite the fact that the graphics aren't as cool as the Witcher 3. :-shrug-:

"Our new game has all the shiny graphics from 2010!"

Still Gamebryo...


That's never going to change. It would take them YEARS to write a new engine with the same level of mod support as they have in this one.

Maybe the Vault has cryo-chambers?

That's basically what they hinted at in the E3 presentation. FO4 takes place after the events of FO3.

Ah, I didn't know they'd said that. I thought it was straight up 15 minutes of game, bomb falls, an hour in the vault, and then you're 20 years later out on the streets.

That's just brilliant. Truly brilliant. It actually even MAKES SENSE.


Loved this in the comments:

JJ Abrams is sitting in his study right now twitching angrily, deciding who to call first concerning the leak."George, part of your fucking deal was to NOT. SAY. ANYTHING!!!"

"But....Jar Jar is the key to all of this...."

"SOMEONE FOUND OUT GEORGE! I DONT KNOW WHO YOU TOLD BUT... STOP IT. STOP IT WITH THE WHOLE but jar jar is the key derpderpderp ITS NOT FUCKING FUNNY GEORGE!"

I'd say let the poor guy see the movie, but on the flipside, I doubt it's done? I mean, filming etc is done, but post production work and editing are undoubtedly still ongoing?

News Comments > Anno 2205 Released
6. Re: Anno 2205 Released Nov 3, 2015, 21:48 Creston
 
I absolutely loved 2070, but if this has no sandbox my interest wanes massively. The story missions weren't bad in 2070, they just weren't as cool (to me) as the almost infinitely adjustable sandbox.

The only thing I really disliked in 2070 was just how ridiculously DLC heavy it was. I bought some kind of "game of the century" edition which came with large chunks of the DLC, added the expansion in with it (and still didn't actually include everything they released) and it did make me wonder how barren the original game must have been building-content wise.

I'll probably pick this up when there's a Somewhat Complete version next year.

Looking at the screen shots and the leaked videos, like Fallout 3, this doesn't look like something you'd see 200 years after a nuclear apocalypse. It looks more like 20 years.

Wouldn't that make sense? The game starts with you playing your character before the war, so it couldn't really then shift 200 years and you're still the same guy/girl.

Looks fine to me. I wish the graphical style had changed (it looks almost exactly like FO3, which was set in D.C. while this is in Boston), but other than that it's fine.

Anyone who plays a Bethesda game for its graphics really should know better.

I kind of agree with him on some level though. What made the ST TV series great were the dramatic exploration of human social, economic, philosophical, military, and other issues in a sci-fi setting. The Abrams universe has much less of that.

The Abrams universe has made two MOVIES. Movies about dramatic explorations of human social, economic, philosophical and military issues in a sci-fi setting draw exactly 12 visitors.

It's certainly possible that Kurtzman (note that Abrams is likely not going to be involved) will produce shows that are way more in line with the Star Trek of old. It's also possible that they'll produce TV shows that are 42 minutes of "KLINGONS! PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW! BANG THAT ALIEN SLUT!"

Until such a time as at least a modicum of information is available, I'm not certain why anyone would shit over the news of getting a new Star Trek show. Unless you were such a fan of Berman and Braga and want "Enterprise" to be the final memories you have of Star Trek...

RIP, Star Trek.

Star Trek was brutally murdered by Braga and Berman over a dozen years ago.

Who knows, the resurrection MIGHT be good. I'm not saying it's the most promising news, but it's possible they will take the tv series and build good plotlines in it and give a lot more focus on crew interaction etc, versus having to build a two hour movie that needs to pull today's ADD crowd into theaters.

At least this way we MIGHT get a good Star Trek show back on TV. If they never do anything, then Berman and Braga's "Enterprise" will have been Star Trek's swan song...

Syndicate looks very nice, at least. Very realistic portrayal of London. Anyone have any idea how badly they've mangled the PC port? (Is it even out yet, actually?)

It comes out in late November. Hopefully meaning they're giving Ubisoft Kiev enough time to make it a decent port this time.

Ubisoft Kiev deliver a decent port? The earth would shatter if that ever happened.

I'm typically in the camp that managers just cost their teams games with all their boneheaded moves, (the absolute finest managers are a zero-sum equation, ie, at least they don't lose their teams games), but last night in the ninth inning, I genuinely felt sorry for Terry Collins.

It had already become obvious that in order for the Mets to win the World Series, they basically needed 3 shut-outs in a row from Harvey, DeGrom and Syndergaard. The Mets' bullpen was a sieve.

Harvey was shutting the Royals down. It makes sense to bring him back for the ninth and hope he can get 3 more outs. It makes no sense whatsoever to bring Familia in, as he's already blown two saves against the Royals in 4 games.

Then Harvey walks a guy, gives up a double, and suddenly you're screwed. Sure, he probably SHOULD have gone to Familia after the walk, but that's easy to say in hindsight. With the way the Royals had been teeing off on him in the past few games, Familia was just as likely to give up 3 runs and they'd still lose.

The best move probably would have been to bring in relievers for single batters and just play the percentages, but Terry (afaik) does not believe in all that statistical "nonsense", and he didn't appear to have anyone warming up, so... yeah. (Also, WHY did he not have anyone warming up? What the hell was he saving them for??)

In the end, the Royals had a much better offense, better defense, ran the bases far better, and had a much better bullpen. It's hard to win when the only thing that's in your team's favor is your starting pitching.

In any case, congrats Royals. Well deserved.
