I've heard there are animal whisperers or whatever so that you can't just lure a tiger into the base and watch it kill everyone.
Which makes me a bit sad, as that never got old.

However, the most I died in that game, outside one mission I hated, was liberating this one base. Every single time I did it and tried to walk out a tiger would maul me. Every time. Tiger spawning was random, right? So I'd go a different direction and get mauled. Or I'd look, see a tiger, kill the tiger from a distance, walk out and get mauled by an entirely different tiger.

It was like Peter Griffin and the raccoon.

Big difference between official reviews and user ratings so far. Will be interesting to see how this ends up.

Metacritic Critic Score 87
Metacritic User Score 5.6


Those users haven't even played the game yet. Astroturfing, or whatever.

There you go. "The more I go back to old roots" means you go back to the old roots!

The direct translation is "the more often I see expensive games the more often I pirate them."

You even quoted it there. "The more often I return" means you do return!


"The more I see these $100 releases with season passes and bullshit, the more I go back to old roots."

I go back to my old roots, my old roots being

"Pirate the game, buy it complete a year later for $10 with everything"

So I'll ask again. Where did I SAY I pirate games? Where, when and what examples have I gone to my old roots? Or pirated a game? You misunderstanding a statement does not mean the way you (or anyone else short of a judge) misunderstand it is true.

You cannot 'directly' translate English, to English while adding your own words or meanings. The direct translation is - "The more I see these $100 releases with season passes and bullshit, the more I go back to old roots. Pirate the game, buy it complete a year later for $10 with everything " not whatever YOU made up. A quote is also directly copied, not replacing and adding words to make it in line with what you preach.

Again, back to the basic law comment. Where have I admitted anything ?

On a lighter note... i almost edit failed for a third time. See, us scummy, guilty, entitled pirates can learn!


"My old roots being pirate the game... tell me where I said pirate the game!"

It doesn't matter that you pay $10 later. Who are you, Wimpy? You'd gladly pay some developer a dollar tomorrow for a video game today?
The game is $60 today. If you play it without paying $60 today you are pirating it.

Please, show me this quote you speak of "You literally said you pirate games"

As I assume you know what literally means.

FC3 had no infinite respawns

Well..... Technically it did, right? I mean, if you wipe out a patrol of bad guys, more of them will show up randomly. And if you leave a particular area then come back a little while later, there will likely be bad guys again.

It hides it much better because it doesn't have the static checkpoints where the bad guys respawned every 10 seconds in exactly the same configuration a la FC2, but, I mean, it's also not as if you can just wipe out all the bad guys in one zone. I once wound up wiping up roughly a dozen jeeps' worth of bad guys, and another one pulled up, and I finally just said "Fuck it!" and left.

Sidenote though, if you take out the outpost of an area, that area will become a friendly zone, and no bad guys will spawn there anymore. I don't know whether that's really a better way of doing it though, because it would quickly make the whole island basically boring as hell, since it was WAAAAAY too easy to clear those outposts.

and was a fantastic open-world FPS that possibly went on too long (more accurately, did a bad job at making you realize you were only halfway done and not 90% done) but was a huge blast.

Agreed. Ignoring the crappy story, it's a ton of fun to play.

The vapid bro main character saving the world was weak, but some will argue it was supposed to be meta. Still, the actual gameplay was top notch.

The only one who ever argued that was the writer, Yohalem. And his arguments changed based on whatever he felt he needed to defend. The whole thing was just a pisspoor story, no matter how badly he tried to pretend that it was deliberate and was supposed to "make you think about all the stupid things games make you do."

Yeah, it's a game, Yohalem. That's kind of why I fucking play them. Rolleyes
Once you took an area out the guys didn't come back. Prior to that they did, but it was mean to seem like the island was alive. No different than any open world, I guess. FC2, while I didn't get far enough in to see, I'd heard has spawns in front of you as you fight.

I had read another article on FC4 mentioning the "meta"ness of FC3. I didn't know the writer had said that. It didn't ring true for me. I didn't think it ruined the game, by any means, but it was just lame. Some seemed to think the older brother would have been better, but I disagree. The German guy, now that was a protagonist.

Cutter wrote on Nov 18, 2014, 10:29:
And why does there "need" to be internet/wifi in school to begin with? So kids can text and game all day? Show me some comprehensive studies on what percentage of the internet is used for actual study and actual learning. If anything I warrant it's the opposite as they're just finding it easier to plagiarize work. And lastly, why don't the fucking parents pay for their brats? People without kids are so sick of getting screwed by the breeders all the time. Take some fucking responsibility for your progeny. You wanna' dip the stick? You pay for the oil!
You are so clueless, it boggles the mind. Broadband connectivity (wired or wireless) is essential for modern learning: for research, for educational applications perfectly customized to each student's level, for on-demand educational presentations and videos, for document creation, etc. etc. It's pretty easy to lock computers down to prevent kids from getting off task, and all schools do. It's pretty easy to lock down wi-fi so personal devices can't be used (our elementary provides the laptops the kids use). Kids study language arts at 1 grade level higher than they did in the 70s. Math is 2 grade levels higher. Computers in school are a huge part of this, and modern computers all rely on the internet for educational software. Computer labs are all monitored by teachers. Kids aren't hanging around playing CoD all day.

As for not wanting to pay for my kids, fuck you, you leech. The reason there is a modern society at all is due to public education. Put your money where your piehole is: move to a farm without electricity and plumbing and live off the land. Never use the services of a doctor, lawyer, accountant, pharmacist, dentist, vet, or any other professional. Never buy food from a store again. Never drive a car again. Never buy a computer or software again. Public education is why we have all the nice things that we do. Someone's kids provided all that, and my kids will be providing and building all of that in the future. If anything, we tax SINKs and DINKs too low since the only thing they contribute back to society is taxes. When you buy the services of any professional, you're paying for the price it costs to keep them there, not the much higher price it took to get them there. I paid for that, thank you very much. And you want to throw $10,000s more on top of it.

Further proving my argument that Cutter lacks any form of empathy and only cares about things that impact him directly.

Cutter political view flowchart:
Does it Impact Cutter - Yes: It is the single most important thing in the world
Does it Impact Cutter - No: Then it's utterly pointless and only morons care and everyone should shut up


No lie. Just look at his posts. He absolutely doesn't conform even remotely close to traditional political left/right/center. Which isn't a bad thing, but usually people tend to have their views cluster in areas, e.g., social. People that support gay marriage tend to also support abortion tend to also support feminism, etc.

Cutter? Cutter really only supports Cutter. Exclusively Cutter. The single most selfish viewpoints possible. It isn't like he doesn't care about things that don't impact him directly, he actively mocks them and anyone that supports them.

I didn't put words in your mouth! You literally said you pirate games. That's stealing.

Christ.

And now you call me an "SJW" in this whole thing? Nonsensical.

Fact 1: You pirate games
Fact 2: You feel justified in this
Fact 3: You deny being entitled
Fact 4: You deny stealing
Fact 5: You accuse others of being childish

Not to get childish, but did your parents drop you on your head when you were little? Or recently?
Repeatedly?

There's a difference between slinging insults and accurately describing someone's actions. You're claiming to be guilty and "I don't feel like waiting" is entitlement distilled. Given that you are guilty and you are entitled, describing your behaviour as scummy isn't unreasonable.

As I said, you can justify insulting anyway you please

I just find it amusing the ones trying to claim the moral high ground act like immature school kids. Perhaps they are?

This logic is insanity.
You: I steal
Us: Stealing is entitled
You: STOP JUDGING ME AND JUSTIFYING IT TO YOURSELVES! TELLING ME THAT STEALING MAKES ME ENTITLED IS INSULTING ME

No. Not at all. It's like telling someone standing outside in the rain that they're wet. It isn't an insult. Factually, you are taking something that isn't yours and proud of it. Factually, this makes you entitled.

We aren't justifying it. We aren't in danger of losing our moral high ground to some guy on the internet bragging about stealing a game on the same messageboard that developers post on. You can try to flip this, but you are the one very smugly happy in your ability to screw over developers for a game you enjoy.

It's fascinating to watch the mental gymnastics so that the guy actively pirating can claim he's the victim here.

Cool trailer, it looks fun. Anyone play it yet? Beamer, didn't you say you were going to get it day one?

Surprising that they're still going with the "skin an animal, and just pull a chunk of top sirloin out of it" routine. They pretended that was deliberate in FC3 to blablabla something about subverting game tropes blablabla lead writer was fucking nuts blablabla, but they're still doing the same thing here. Apparently pulling away a skin and relayering the slaughtered animal with a skinned texture is too much work?


Ordered via Amazon, but got the physical copy, because it wasn't clear if the preorder perks came with the digital. It shipped today, won't get to me until probably Thursday, possibly tomorrow.

In any case, I'm about halfway through Wolfenstein and feel like I should finish that first, but damn, that game is looooong, especially on I Am Death Incarnate, where I have to repeat some parts and occasionally put the game down after 30 minutes because I just beat something challenging.
I probably won't install this until the weekend at the earliest. But I'll keep playing Wolfenstein while staring at this box.

Every time these commercials come on TV I get excited. The music is right, the visuals are nuts. It looks amazing.

Then the commercial goes longer and I remember that I hated the plot, hated the characters, and hated many of the missions (loved loved loved chasing the plane on the dirtbike.)

Not sure. Such a wonderful engine/world, but what they did with it wasn't just bad to me. Spending time with those cutscenes and side missions is something I don't think you could even pay me to do.

Calling someone entitled for stealing without thinking it's stealing is already justified.

If you want to wait until it's $10 to buy it, wait until it's $10 to play it.

Seems just scummy to me to do otherwise. It's a way to pirate something yet not feel guilty about it, even though you're enjoying a $60 product without paying for a $60 product.

I'm paying $0 when it's $100 because I do not feel the product is worth $100, and I don't feel like waiting or paying a price that is not justified. You can use all your insults you want, it will not change it and makes you look quite immature to slander those you disagree with Regardless if you think my position makes me immature... 2 wrongs and all.

Publishers know this, they bet on the fact that enough buy it @ $100 (game + pass) to make MORE money than selling a traditional, full game @ 60. It is working, as more 0 day DLC games get released. Or games with a fraction of content they use to have... at the same price to allow planned content added later. Or cutting mods to force purchase of 4 maps for $10. Or pre order bonuses, which are cut content awarded for pre purchasing.

I'll pirate it, and buy it if I continue beyond the first ten minutes when the publisher has decided it can no longer sell it at $100, and releases it's complete version at a reasonable price. It's economics to the publisher, and to me.

I do not expect you to agree with this, or even do it. But don't think calling me scummy or trying to guilt me will effect my decision on the matter, my library use to be 100% pirated when I was younger. By some of the replies my pirating games effects some of your guys' conciseness more than mine.

I buy full price games frequently. Saddle it with day-0 DLC and your the chance I buy it is out the window.

No we don't "all win." In fact most of us lose, thanks to pirates like yourself, due to delayed releases and DRM.

Yes, pirating released games delays them. And naturally companies will stop using their DRM when piracy stops... they don't use it for the metrics (uplay... origin.... steam). No, they would rather pay for their market research.

It's not an insult, it's a fact. "I don't feel like waiting" is entitlement, pure and simple. You don't get to make that decision. By making it, you feel entitled to someone else's hard work.

Publishers know this, so they add all kinds of crazy DRM to stop people like you. You think you're gaming the system, but you're ruining it. Not to mention how many games are written off for not selling enough copies because people like you just pirate it and wait for it to be cheap on Steam.

There are a billion games in everyone's backlog, why not play those while you wait for the game to get at the price you want. Why pirate?

Entitlement. That's why.

I use to pirate everything, then I grew up and built a good library of legal games.

The more I see these $100 releases with season passes and bullshit, the more I go back to old roots. Pirate the game, buy it complete a year later for $10 with everything.

But if they are making more money from the die hard fans good for them, it'll help me build a dirt cheap library while playing everything soon after release. So we all win.

I don't get this. You're playing it when it's $60, pay $60.
If you want to wait until it's $10 to buy it, wait until it's $10 to play it.

Someone linked me to a Kotaku article today about "My First 20 Hours in FC4." It sounded pretty spectacular. Seems very much like they 100% took what they'd already built and just improved/enhanced. Like a good 2nd version of a game in the same engine should.

I can still play the new XCOM (which is awesome) and the original XCOM right after, and Xenonauts is about to work its way in there. Elite is going back a bit too far for me personally but everyone's threshold of tolerance will be different. The original Jagged Alliance is a bit blocky but Jagged Alliance 2 seems like it is much more future-proofed. I think it still looks good for what it is and probably will for another ten years.

Yup, definitely different thresholds, which is why I started with "personally." I've defended low-res gaming here before, because you do adjust to it, but I find that I'm towards the end of my interest. Most of the best games out there then have games out now that do things differently but usually, in aggregate, better. Components may be worse, but the actual product is better.

SS2 is one many will say hasn't been surpassed.
JA2, too. That's a dead genre. Seems people are working on it in Kickstarter, but mostly from an RPG perspective. JA2 gets dinged for being low res and 2D. There are times that being able to rotate the camera would be a dream. But, since it's a dead genre, I'll just play it for the 900th time.
