Loved everything about the game... except maybe the slime room. Those fucking slimes.


What I do wish they'd do is invest some time in to the story.

It wasn't relevant. You're in a dungeon: escape before you die.

Anyways I doubt it's going to be any better in LoG2, as this time, your band of adventurers is... shipwrecked on a mysterious island!

News Comments > The Evil Within > 30 FPS "Not Supported"
44. Re: The Evil Within > 30 FPS Oct 9, 2014, 13:26 PHJF
 
Having a constant 30 FPS with no slowdowns is the best option when you are going for a cinematic experience.

The best option when going for a cinematic experience is to go to a fucking cinema.

One of the harshest criticisms which may be levied against a movie is that it is "like watching a video game." Well I got news for you, that's a two way street; if a game developer wants to make a "cinematic experience" they're in the wrong fucking business.

No hardware can run all software at 60fps. It's a physical impossibility. Developers have to make tradeoffs to get frames per second, and sometimes those tradeoffs aren't worth the extra frames, so they're sacrificed.

You're absolutely right. The only problem with that argument is Evil Within looks like shit. Not only that, but the ONLY OTHER games running id Tech 5 run at sixty fucking frames a second, ON CONSOLES.

News Comments > DICE: BF4 Launch "Absolutely" Damaged Player Trust
11. Re: DICE: BF4 Launch Oct 8, 2014, 10:14 PHJF
 
I had zero issues with the BF4 launch.

But maybe that's because I refuse to use Origin and thus never tried to play it. Still, no issues.

The only logical conclusion is that Phantom Pain will be coming to PC, which is... rather shocking.

The design of the game seems to lean towards hardcore, where they tried to make you feel as hopeless as possible.

And then you get the flamethrower?

I watched somebody play for the first hour and it looked bad. Slow as hell (mission: get dressed), bunch of pointless quicktime events (seriously? mashing X repeatedly three times in a row to pull a lever?), and the thing I'm most sick of in gaming, a bunch of fucking writing all over every wall. As if people have nothing better to do in a crisis than spraypaint cryptic messages left and right.

Gametrailers says there is a chunk of the game during which there is no Alien, and the enemy is instead a bunch of androids. W. T. F.

because there have been utility guys spray-painting the street for weeks to show where the water mains and such are buried, as apparently Consolidated Edison is going to be replacing all the gas lines soon, so we may be living that soothing jackhammer life for the foreseeable future.

They've been doing just that to the major five-lane road near me for months now. I hope you get settled in for the long haul.

My guess would be:

1) Rocket
2) Fuel
3) Launch Facility
4) Cup
5) Coffee beans
6) Coffee machine
7)... duct tape?

How'd you forget water?

FYI, I just found out the "HD Texture Pack" requires download of a DLC in addition to the regular install. It's a 3.7GB download.

I've noticed that after killing SOME captains, instead of seeing their heads on pikes at the Sauron's Army screen, it shows them simply lying on the ground.

Whoever said it was easy though, whew. I have been killed a bunch and gotten a bunch of nobody orc fodder guys promoted to captains.

I've come close to dying a handful of times (mostly from poison) but haven't yet, and I'm currently working my way through the warchiefs. It's very easy to simply run away if health gets low, and since healing herbs are scattered virtually everywhere, it takes all of two seconds to be back at full health.

Anyway back on topic, is anyone actually playing? The reviews seem to indicate that the game falls a bit flat once you start seeing repetition in the Nemesis system but I'm interested in some hands on experiences.

It's Assassin's Creed and Arkham City in a roughly 50/50 mix. The world structure and traversal straight from Creed, the combat straight from Arkham. It's no more or less.

You know you need to worry when Huber over at Gametrailers complains a game is too easy... and there are no difficulty settings.

Player starts out as a god, and only get stronger from there.
