News Comments > Facepunch Announces Riftlight; Defends Rust
5. Re: Facepunch Announces Riftlight; Defends Rust Jul 28, 2014, 10:38 Creston
 
If this bothers you, there is a very simple solution: Never back another project by Facepunch, never buy another one of their early access games.


I'm kind of ambivalent about the scenario. I understand that they can't just keep working on Rust and then only start to think about something else once it finally finishes. I also agree with his point about buying Early Access, it's not the same as a Kickstarter scenario. Had they Kickstarted Rust, I'd have agreed people had a legitimate beef. With Early Access, not so much.

On the flipside, Rust isn't even anywhere close to being finished, and afaik they basically started over completely in an experimental branch that nobody can currently play? In which case, everyone who bought Early Access is stuck with an old version that's not being updated and is nowhere near finished...

Finally, the guy being a major asshole about it is sure to help him get lots more money, because obviously the cliffyb and Phil Fish style of dealing with your customers is something to be emulated.

This has Massive Fail written all over it, but hey, who knows. I'll be cautiously optimistic.

the developers say they were "influenced" by AC, thats the extent of it

And by "influenced" they mean "We took like 80% of all AC's animations."

I haven't played Crysis 3 yet, it's one of the 500 games on my backlist.

Crysis 3 is really good, but it's sadly waaaaaaay too short. Which is weird, because Crysis 2 is really long (when I played it the first time, there were several times where I thought the game would be over, and it kept on going.)

Crysis 3 also fixes about the only big issue I had with Crysis 2, which is the lack of open areas to fight in. It's definitely worth playing, I had a lot of fun. It's just over in roughly six to eight hours...

Too bad it's not a new expansion.. Dragonfall was decent, but unless the changes are massive it's not worth a replay...

Except it is easily worth several replays, and this is excellent news.

News Comments > Far Cry 4 Diary and Everest Contest
6. Re: Far Cry 4 Diary and Everest Contest Jul 25, 2014, 22:43 Creston
 
Those are all fair points, I just can't help but think that if you saw someone struggling to stay alive and just walked away from him/her in any western country, you'd go to jail for a fairly long time.

When I read NG's last trip to Everest, and how they passed someone who they said was "close to dying", it kinda sent chills through my spine how casual they were about it. I know, people go up there on their own and accept the risk, but on the flipside, there's like 300 climbers passing that person in an hour, and nobody lifts a finger to help. It seems rather callous.

But, I do understand that trying to help could potentially mean putting an entire group of lives at risk, and that that's a tough decision to make.

Well, that doesn't happen often.

This looks interesting, but it seems like something that can easily sound great and turn out to be boring to play, so I'll wait for some people to play it and give some opinions on it.

Online publisher. So, they're not going to develop games anymore, or they're just only going to be making online games?

In either case, I'm glad they got funding to continue to exist, so hopefully noone will lose their job.

What baffled me is that there are basically like 2000 people on Everest at all times, yet everyone will just let some poor slob die without bothering to help.

Perhaps it's time for some nice scouring winds to blow all the assholes OFF Everest. Where's my fan...

Visiting Everest basically means standing in Tokyo-level traffic jams once you get past camp 2.

Eh you guys need to take your fucking pills. This is interesting and different than what we've seen from Bioware in the past, and it's a new IP. I'll be keeping an eye on this one.

The IP may be interesting, but the trailer is fucking terrible. As are most of EA's trailers, especially the ones they make for Bioware.

And seeing as how it will need to fit in the Bioware mold of you being the chosen hero who can do something that no one else can, and while doing that you gather up a team of plucky and witty souls to help you visit the four locations you'll need to Set Shit Straight(tm), we'll have to wait and see on how different it really is.

This sounds like it'd be fun for approximately 30 minutes or so, and then it'd get annoying and you'd just go play Wolfenstein or BF4 or whatever.

EA's marketing "genius" at work again.

Why they even bother to keep their marketoids employed will one day be considered the greatest question of the 21st century.

I don't think any developer group of scam artists has ever whined more than these guys. They're just throwing shit up on the excuses wall to see what will stick.

Pure nonsense, Battleborn is clearly a MOBA. Who do they think they are kidding?

Countdown until developers start using "MOBAlike" to describe their games. "Well, it's not really a MOBA, but it's a MOBAlike!"

Everyone making a MOBA now is saying it isn't a MOBA. It's one of the rules.

Followed by some dipshit suit, most likely at EA, saying about their new game "It's kind of like MOBA meets Jazz Jackrabbit meets Zaxxon!"

"We decided that the right thing to do was to actually stand by our earlier stance of No-Yearly-Battlefield-Releases, so we're marginally delaying the game until we can technically say it didn't come out the year after BF4."
