Because obviously anyone encrypting their internet or using a VPN must be doing something illegal.

Especially VPN, no normal/productive person would ever use that. Govt = Paranoid Rob Lowe.

Enh, my only real gripe with the game was the lack of a dedicated healer role. I like playing clerics in (C)RPGs. And I wasn't really keen on the mage roles and their spells. Call me old but I prefer old school D&D mages - big ass fireballs, prismatic sprays, Bigby's Clenched Anus, er, Fist. etc.

Probably all we need to know, we have better communications amongst ourselves...

From the Creative Director of DA:

So in Laidlaws tweet about the walk toggle he responds to someone asking why anyone needs to walk "Mike Laidlaw @Mike_Laidlaw
1h1 hour ago

Player preference. It was widely requested, so we threw a few people at implementing and testing it."

But I feel like ive seen fixing pc controls, fixing tac cam, and click to move / attack have been wayyy more requested??? not to mention you can still play the game without walk toggle and it would be fine, its just an immersion thing, but the other things are kind of crucial to enjoying the game. Could be walk toggle was easier to implement..


I mean if he doesn't know what's going on and being changed, then fuck no chance. Accept as-is imo at this point.

One thing that may need some polish on it was the Nemisis system in terms of player death.

If I'm not mistaken, the less you die the Chiefs don't level up and they remain a lower level. If you die, aka having more difficulty with the game, the chiefs level up making the game even more difficult.

I think this explained where some thought the game was too easy, while others found it to hard. Some tpye of game setting option should be able to affect this. Like no level on death, level on time if no death. So that way the guy never dying gets a stronger challenge and the person dying can get some reprieve.

And this is just still "in the works". To me 1/4 erection. As mentioned the cam not readjusting sounds good, banter fix sounds good. That's about it, the walk thing to me measures as a roleplay request, never cared either way on that, but there is always a vocal crowd wanting that. I know there is a hotkey script for this game, so when I do dive in, I'll check it out.

I'm at a $30 entry price, imo they did very little since release. Be interesting playing this after reading so much feedback, I'm sure plenty of it will be over-stated and no big in-game.

Totally legit, the only way imo to completely get a way from this, less sabotage directly, is no external communications for the navigation system. But then that gets rid of 75% why the gov't wants this, to track your car 24/7.

Damn good game, glad it did well for them. Sequel, please!


I for one found it lacking after a very short time. Once the novelty of the fighting wore off it turned out to be very shallow and rather repetitive. Not saying thats necesarily a bad thing, but I grew very bored with it very quickly.

To me nearly all games get that repetitiveness going if they are long enough. I'm starting to on average favor a game around 10 hours for $20. Get in, get out, fresh play, finish game, next game. A. Repetitiveness doesn't fall in, if I loved it gets me excited on follow up. B. I finish a lot more games, which is nothing but a good thing, backlog shrinks, industry has me focused on next new games.

I know this isn't everyone's view, but in general with my ADHD and just looking back at my patterns, that would work better for me. Now the 6 hour $60 games can go fuck themselves, 10 hours - $20 on avg, some less, some a bit more based on production values.

Or another option for games, most don't have. In addition to easy-med-hard. Short-reg-long game options.

Enjoyed this game quite a bit, perhaps just a little longer than I needed, was getting just a tad old. But the mechanics, moves, animations and scenarios were just plain ole fun.

Cyberfox.

Cyberfox in my testing did the best in the Fox series of browsers on vids, including html5 and was the reason to switch from Waterfox to this.

I bought H1Z1, but can't play it because you can't even remap your controls. ?!?!?!?!?!? *facepalm*

So far they are failing hard at basic game design, not off to a good start.

People like you are the problem with PC Gaming today. Early access....Geez!

Why does there have to be a problem with PC games? If you do a quick search of steam review/forums, a quick Youtube and LiveStream, you can decide if you like the game or not almost assuredly, one will sneak in every now and then, but few. I happen to like a number of EA games, don't mind and often enjoy the process of dev updating process until release.

Where you think I enable bad behavior, you can take the 1/2 full affect, I support development which ultimately brings you a game that would never exist otherwise and some have been pretty darn good. I actually think most AAA companies can stick it, I find myself rooting for companies that have to use EA, KS avenues.

To me it's a self centered argument about how others shouldn't use EA/KS, if you don't like it, don't buy it, if you like later on at release, great. Hopefully we made it better for you then.

Mordecai Walfish wrote on Jan 18, 2015, 14:18:
Think about this scenario-- what is to stop people from waiting till late night hours when not many people are online, and a large group coordinates to do airdrops and the next day when everyone is playing this group is all of a sudden armed to the teeth because they gave $$ to the devs and ended up with weapons/armor/whatever. It's just a super-shady system for this kind of game, and one that will require a bunch of stupid immersion-breaking rules to enforce so that this seems even remotely fair to players.

Good point. I also considered even though it would be more up for grabs, calling in a drop and being in the area is much better chance for everyone involved than a group of people somewhere else with no drop at all. It still is a arms race advantage.

Watching streams, I like the idea of zombie apoc survival, but a number of these games are really deathmatch games with a little zombie presence, many times a trivial presence.

then where does it stop.
Here. It stops with this game and rape simulators. And pupping torturing simulators. Draw a line for once.

Why do video games get lines where movies and books don't?

See I want sex in games, but for some reasons it is tip toeing at best.

Movies and books have no problems with sex.

You draw a line here, it easily goes into games you most likely will enjoy, there is a lawyer ready to argue your pixel killing is as bad as the banned one.

I'm all for, if you don't like it don't buy it. I'm good if you say why you don't like it. I'm not a fan in saying "this should be banned, because you don't like it", we all want freedom, we don't want a dictator, but comments like those are dictatorial in nature. I don't like, want banned.

And I am one that totally has no problem with understanding the difference between real and fantasy.

Oh well.

And we all can agree these things change (back to that early access thingy)? Lastly, the air drops are not mandatory and you will be given them in game on occasion from what I have read/heard. Sounds good to me so far. I don't read that as pay to win... seems a bit of a stretch.

This was a moving story, so we are caught up in that a bit.

You are correct, EA/Beta things can change.

It started out though... their original thought was you buy the drop and in this case it landed basically right on top of you. The plane was faster, the crate fell faster. So this was really pushing it being PTW. Pay $5 get goods, leg up on those just looking for goodies in the trash.

Then the first backlash and response from Smed occurs.

Change, EA/Beta, right?

Now the plane moves slower and the crate falls slower and it isn't nearly as accurate to fall at your feet. Now your $5 loot is at play amongst others equally. Agreed this isn't a lot less PTW than previously. But now it has created this new category. Pay to Have Fun, Pay for Conflict. We're just questioning what type of person would pay $5 for someone else to get your stuff. I guess a sugar daddy. Just strange that warrants the topic and the replies.

That said, stop buying early access you fuckwits. And if you do buy early access, stop fucking freaking out when an incomplete early access game on its launch day isn't exactly what you want.

Not sure who you are speaking to, I take it most in this post haven't purchased it and just responding to the news.

I also get the point a couple back, if someone wants to buy an air drop in which they don't have a much better chance than the next guy in getting, it is their money to waste, who cares? They are playing sugar daddy for the rest of us.

I wish I could find the blues comments from when someone tried making a columbine simulator, as that's what this essentially is. You walk around in a trench coat killing innocent people for no reason.

It has a right to exist, but it's asinine.

Are there books and movies with those themes? If so then why not video games? Or should they all be banned and remember you ban them, then you have this in court with "here we see this girzzly act which was banned, but here this is as grizzly or even more so, why shouldn't this be banned, your honor?"

I guess I really don't care overall if it is banned, I just don't know why it would when other things exist. I got a foot in the grave like the next person, there are no perfect answers. I just have the ability to make ok with real from not real.

I personally have a bigger issue with a 10+ year war we have going on in the real, it was justified early on, now it seems to exist as a fear machine to grease the war pigs, I could be wrong.

I couldn't care less if I'm labeled a SJW, moral crusader, hypocrite, whatever - my opinion is that this game is disgusting, and I don't know why anyone would defend it's existence.

And those acting like it's no different than other games are either willfully ignorant or just stupid.
Also, my opinion

Because I've played too many games as a killer of pixels. Right your opinion, since it is fantasy, it is absolutely the same as many other killing pixel games to me.

Or is this going to be like the movie "In the Mouth of Madness", everyone reads the book, learns their part in a Lovevratian horror part that becomes the new reality, aka make me a killer for real? I have 100% confidence it isn't. As for an Adult rating, fine with that, that is no worries.

IMO if you have a problem like this, then you do have some Thompson in you, then where does it stop. Because you know lawyers will start lining up in the way I describe. "Your honor since Hatred was banned, here let me show you some footage from that, and now here are another 100 games footage, really aren't they the same your honor? And shouldn't they all be banned?".

Unless you think this game sparks real death in the real world, imo you should role with it, if you don't like it, ignore. Because it has a dark over-tone, it is still fiction. There are many books and movies with crazy dark over tones. Some I may see/read, others I have no interest.

On the other hand, there are a ton of used GTA V games out there for consoles. Don't know why anyone needs a PC version after it has been out so long.

I don't own a console and I'm not going to buy one for a single game.


Agreed, the first day of release on the PC will be the first opportunity I'll have buying and playing it... the way I want to.
