About the Madden, that was a rule change a while back, if the defender catches the ball in the field of play and falls into the endzone it was a safety, it was bull shit but it was. The play that made them review and change it was Charles Woodson of the Raiders against Seattle INT the ball running with the WR on a deep fly, he caught it around the 3 and their momentum ran them into the endzone where he was touched while on the ground. Result was a safety and millions of Raider fans pissed off as the play cost them a W.

In this case the ref was wrong, forgot the rule and will be reprimanded in NYC offices the following week.

That's the kind of shit that starts happening when you come up with 87 new stupid rules each year. Eventually they become so ludicrous that not even guys who are supposed to know them for their JOBS can keep up with them anymore.

And yeah, the "interception in the end zone is ball at your own 20 yard line, but intercept outside the end zone and fall into the end zone and it's a safety" rule was always complete horseshit. Did they finally change it?

He's right. Every game should be 4K.

rather than forcing a developer to reach a number that is perceived by the public as ideal.

It's not just "perceived" as ideal, dumb fucking schmuck, most people have a 1080p TV. Therefore, and try to keep up, if your game runs at 1080p, it runs at the TV's native resolution and that's ALWAYS going to look better than having it be upscaled. It may just be a small difference, sure, but it's there.

Maybe if you'd spend a little less time on your dumb-ass camera toy which you've now fully abandoned, and a little more time on making sure your "next-gen" console would actually have some power to do some games justice, you wouldn't have to be sitting there coming up with all kinds of retarded bullshit excuses for why your failbox sucks.

I know you're cynical man, but has CDP ever done us wrong on their games? Faith, it's not needed in this case.

No, they're awesome, but I WANT it to look this good and play this good, so that's why I'm hoping this isn't just trailer fud.

Not sure if this would be the right thread to ask but here it goes anyway.

Just finished watching Black Sails Season 1, and Im seriously stoked for some Man-O-War action on the high seas.

Is there a Naval PC game out there that can cater to my needs? So basically looking for a kind of "Pirates!" game.

AC4 black flag has the best naval combat, imo, but Rogue will apparently be just about the same game (same models, same enemies, they really did just about 2% work on this game), and the environments are much, MUCH better looking. So you'd probably want to hold off for Rogue.

As much as I loved the naval combat, and would likely love Rogue, I'm definitely not going to start buying two AC games per year.

I don't think LA Noir had a season pass, tbh, but it's been awhile so I may be mistaken.

Anyone who gave Robin Williams' daughter abuse will hopefully die of agonizingly painful ass-cancer in the next two weeks.

And as for Comcast, shit, they're just doing what SCOTUS told them to do. Why the fuck do FCC commissioners show up to shit like that? Oh wait, I forgot, they work for the cable industry.

And finally, OMG, Y512K!!!!

I know. Don, please go back to Microsoft. Since you've been gone they've actually done a few sensible things, and it's less enjoyable that way.

There are plenty of plates of crow left to eat, so kindly go back and fuck some more shit up.

Frankly it's very unusual for a major developer to show pre-alpha footage at all. I get the impression they are trying to start showing things early enough that they can actually make changes based on feedback. Usually from Bioware (or any other larger studio) you don't see any real gameplay until a few months before release and the game is basically in a finished state.

Well, EA did say they were thinking about the whole Early Access process, so maybe this is their trial run with it or something.

Still, it's infuriating to see people shitting on something based on a few blurbs and some pre-alpha gameplay.

I'll admit it doesn't look great, but it's in pre-alpha, so...

A four player vs 1 enemy player Diablo-type game that you can play in easy spurts of say 10-20 minutes could be quite fun, as long as you can stay away from having to pug.

Eh, it's in pre-alpha, so the final product will undoubtedly look little to nothing like this. It looks like over-the-shoulder Diablo, only this time there'll be a DM running around as well. Still seems interesting.

I was not looking forward at all to the original cast being in the new Star Wars movie, but I have to say, Mark Hamill looks like a total Jedi master with his full beard.

Now wait until you see Leia's beard...

Oh I didn't realize Bioware is terrible now, sorry. I'll update the spreadsheet.

Hahahahaha. Bravo.

Considering the original Dragon Age was last decent thing they've done...it's not like it's a secret.


You're too young to be this grumpy.

Mass Effect 3 was a great game with a bad ending, which they eventually fixed (twice.)

DA2 was terribly mediocre and a direct result of EA forcing shit out the door in 18 months, which does not appear to be an issue with DA3.

So it's a little rough to kick Bioware to the curb for having one bad, publisher-fucked, game.

Watter wrote on Aug 13, 2014, 13:21:
So, not a troll, really, but why are folks excited about this? I hear a lot of folks saying they're looking forward to it, which is surprising given the general attitude of Bluesnews'ers after a game in series is as disappointing as DA2 was. What is it that seems to be making people optimistic? Are there gameplay vids out there that I missed that are blowing people away. Surely it's not CGI-fests like the trailer above that are raising hopes.

DA2 was mediocre, but it was also rushed out the door by mandate of EA with just 18 months of development time. This has now been in development for more than 3 years, and they just delayed it another 6 weeks to do extra polish, so that in itself would mitigate the short development time isue.

The story in DA2 was actually pretty good. The Qu'nari, the mages and templars finally exploding into all out war, cool companions, etc. It's just the combat sucked ass, and mostly because of the spawns issue, which they had already pretty much addressed in the DLC/expansion. I've played through DA2 twice (if you just turn the combat to normal or easy, so you can blast through it in 20 or 30 seconds, and then switch it back to hard or nightmare for the boss encounters, you don't get too bored with it, at least imo) and actually quite enjoyed myself the second time.

Inquisition is set in both Orlais and Ferelden, and there is a ton of cool lore about Orlais, and it just seems to be an intriguing place to visit. Also, Morrigan is back and plays a major role, Leliana is back and plays a big role, etc. It seems to tie in pretty well with Origins.

Finally, I've seen gameplay videos of the open world (ish) areas, which are pleasantly huge and you can travel through them free-form (rather than maps that are made up of 4 corridors, a la DA2), the intention is that you circulate through the maps rather than go to one, finish it, then never come back (whether it works out that way... who knows), and they've said they've developed areas that are basically so high level / difficult that they're designed to be visited after you've finished the storyline.

Oh, and the engine looks bloody gorgeous.

So that, combined with the fact that I'm still a pretty big Bioware fan (DA2 was a misstep, which they've admitted, and they actually fixed all ME3's problems to my satisfaction), means I'm giving the benefit of the doubt. I'm not preordering (unless they do a preload...) but if I hear good things on day 1 or 2, I'll undoubtedly pick it up.
