News Comments > Max Payne 3 Steam CD Keys Exhausted
28. Re: Max Payne 3 Steam CD Keys Exhausted Mar 11, 2013, 05:09 Krovven
 
Here's my problem. People can dig into ANY story and rip the shit out of it if they dig deep enough. Particularly video game stories, because the narrative is broken up by gameplay that is generally played differently by everyone.

Of the action shooters, FPS or TPS, which ones exactly have "great" stories that Max Payne 3 is supposed to hold up to? Stories of action games are there to provide one thing, set pieces for battle. If they succeed without being absolutely ridiculous without the gameplay sucking, it's a win.

Regarding your idea...seriously, that's your story suggestion? You want Max Payne to give up the one singular thing that keeps Max Payne who is, his conscious? His morality of right and wrong? To be a murderer? Working for the same types of scum that had his family killed? Being no better than the people that killed his family?

Don't bother criticising stories when you clearly have no idea what even makes the character a character.

News Comments > Homeworld IP & Games Kickstarter
11. Re: Homeworld IP & Games Kickstarter Mar 10, 2013, 20:48 Krovven
 
I agree, this company is not who I want to see get the Homeworld IP, primarily because they do not seem to have much of a history. Their website is HORRIBLE!

I think this video was on the indiegogo campaign, they've posted different videos on the Kickstarter campaign. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcsXkj88-KQ

They were already working on their own space RTS and the demonstrations you see are their engine MODDED to look like Homeworld. For Homeworld 3, they will most likely only be rebranding their own game as Homeworld 3, not building it from the ground up as a proper sequel.

Way too much focus on bringing Homeworld to phones and tablets. That is such a bad idea and it already looks like a pain in the ass to use.

All I want to see Homeworld 1/2 and expansions, WON.net stripped out and Steamworks added for multiplayer. Sell it as a bundle for $20 and I'm all over it. And eventually a Homeworld 3.

I would rather see Relic/Sega or even Blackbird Interactive ( http://blackbirdinteractive.com/team/ ) pick up the IP. Wish we knew if either of them were making a play for it.

But not being able to skip cutscenes immediately made me ragequit the New York Minute mode.

There's a "<press Enter logo> Skip" icon in the lower right corner of cutscenes once the next level has loaded in the background. The game used cutscenes to hide loading screens. Would you really rather sit there and watch a loading screen, then goto a cutscene that you can skip? I'm going to assume the answer is no. I wish most games did this. It makes the games that do this, flow so much better. Maybe this isn't available in the New York Minute mode (haven't tried it), but it certainly is in the Story mode.

Flatline, you seem to recall the story relatively well except for one major point of your complaining. He was beating himself up because he failed to protect those that he was hired to protect, just like he was incapable of protecting his family...DESPITE being a bad-ass (as we see him). He partially blames being drunk on the job for his failures, quits drinking...then with a clearer head starts to over-analyze his faults. He does not see himself as a bad-ass that can take on dozens of gunman, when the outcome is he fails to protect those he is supposed to and lives himself.

I'm in no way support of Blizzard's practically yearly release of WoW expansions at one point

What?

WoW 2004, BC (January) 2007, WoTLK (Nov.) 2008, Cata 2010, MoP 2012.

The closest to your "yearly" expansions is 22 months. Maybe you are confusing WoW with Everquest, which has averaged an expansion roughly every 6-8 months for the last 10 years.

Dude. Splitting the single player campaign into 3 separate entities...

Dude. As has been pointed out countless times...SC2 WoL has as many missions (with 1 race) as all of the original SC missions combined (across all 3 races). Actually it has more, if you count the Challenge mission maps.

SC2 was a $60 game, HoS is $40...$40 has been the Blizzard standard expansion pack price for about the last 10 years.

And yet you're still here despite repeated claims that you were moving on because it was so unbearable

Yea, 1 post in 6 months, 2 in 8 months (prior to this)...I'm clearly still here conversing with you idiots. I'm curious as to where these repeated phantom claims are that I was moving on. It's funny how irrational minds can fill in the blanks. Just like when irrational minds fill in the blanks on games they haven't played, so they can support their hate towards them. I didn't realise that if I stopped posting for awhile that suddenly means I can no longer return to the promise land that Verno rules over!

As usual the rest of your post is drivel. Verno presenting, with all his hypocrisy intact, that he is taking the high road and is clearly superior to everyone else.

Nothing stopping people from posting about how great Aliens is and why others are wrong about it for example

People can't, because the game isn't out yet. Nobody has even played multiplayer yet. See now why the incessant whining about a game that nobody has played yet makes so much sense? There can be no rational discussion on how good this game PLAYS (particularly multiplayer), only irrational hatred. Darks isn't even being the opposite, an irrational fanboy. He just wants to wait and see how it plays before passing judgement and is willing to pay for it to find out for himself.

You have a point about unnecessary negativity, but your comments only contribute to it and foster the environment you are so vocally protesting against. You have an ignore list, use it or abandon the site. The hypocrisy in your posts is tiring and counter-productive.

Sucks don't it Darks? For pointing out the obvious, that the Blues forums are a community filled with people that just want to hate games and attack the people that like them. Being attacked for merely liking a game that the inbred heathens here hate, simply based on a few trailers they've seen. They've bitched about plenty of other games, but Aliens is the whipping boy this month. Don't worry, it will pass. In March Heart of the Swarm is due and the locusts will swarm to hate that one too.

And now Jivaro, stating your comments only contribute to the problems in this thread and you best be on your way. They don't want to hear an opposing opinion that might have some rationality behind it. Either fall in line with the pitchforks and chanting or get the fuck out.

It is rare that I see the comments section of Blues so unified against one particular point of view.

Everybody...group hug!!



D3 did that too, it was touching.

Just switch in Krovven for Mad Max, and it's exactly the same!

BTW, can you believe he actually unfriended me on Steam because I bashed Diablo 3??? Like the saying goes, with friends like these...

I haven't posted since July, yet little children still need to insult me and attribute what someone else is saying as if I said it.

FYI, Mad Max is in an idiot, just like the majority of fools still talking trash about devs, games and gamers on Blues. Unfortunately Prez has grouped himself with those people by attacking others for the games they like. I unfriended you because you actually stated you hoped hackers were ruining gamers experiences with Diablo 3, but I would have done it regardless of the game. I don't associate myself with people that wish ill will on others, because of the games they play.

Time to grow up Prez.

Wow, you are just completely, utterly irrational.

Funny. That's what I've been saying about you. Irrational is going around crying like a child in every thread about a form of entertainment and how it raped your children and ruined your life.

Speaking of irrational, someone can tell nin that if he wasn't so delusional he'd notice that right after I started the Blues News group, I passed it over to Blue. That was 5-7 years ago now? Furthermore, I've since left the Blues group because the amount of people I want to continue relationships with from Blues is a handful and they are already on my friends list. Some people need to grow the fuck up in a big way.

As I said to someone last night, I'm no longer surprised that D3 threads are 75% ignored users, and most of those people never bought the game to begin with, yet they are still bitching about the game 2 months after release. So yes, I guess not wanting to be associated with whiney self entitled little shits makes me the irrational one that needs mental help.

LMAO! Talk to me again when you get your panties unwadded there, sparky. Jesus dude - is Diablo 3 your mom or something? Lighten up.

I'm not the grown adult crying in every D3 thread about how butthurt they are over "entertainment".

Nor do I go around hoping that others experiences are intentionally ruined by hackers.

You seemed like a good guy Prez. Turns out you are just a sad individual like the others around here that obsess over games and the companies that make them, spewing hatred over what you feel they owe you.

I think most would agree that ActiBlizz could have taken a shit in a box and slapped the Diablo sticker on it and it would have sold 7 million plus copies.

That isn't what they did for Diablo 3?

Sorry - can't help myself lately. Having a serious hate-on for Blizzard with how badly they fucked up my Diablo. Maybe I'll eventually get over it, but I am going to enjoy it while it lasts!

So we can continue to see you acting like a self-entitled little baby in D3 threads? Good to know.

Diablo 3 is dead in the water now.

There seems to be this fantasy land where you and several other losers live, where D3 was a bomb and didn't sell 6+ million copies (last known number) and doesn't have millions of people still playing and enjoying it.

Try joining reality for a change instead of making shit up.

I picked up Saints Row the Third for the summer sale. I'm kind of surprised... it's actually good... better than GTA, IMO.

One of the best games last year. Having skipped SR1 & 2 based on all the negative feedback, I was very surprised that SR3 was getting an excellent response and grabbed it around xmas on GMG for $20. Just grabbed most of the DLC today, so thinking Im going to jump back in for some more.

They asked them not to eat for 2 hours before the mealtime-scheduled appointments, recorded their appetite level before each session began, and then observed them playing games or watching TV for an hour.

So, they put hungry people alone in a room, with video games and food. The outcome, they ate while playing video games. Shocking!

I like the show, but it's been a love/hate relationship, kind of like Lost was. I'm hoping, based on this trailer (which looks fantastic) and Darabont no longer being the showrunner that things will pick up.

PHJF, this is the Comic-Con trailer. And yes TV shows have had trailers forever.

I said WoW and probably COD... two of their major cash cows, are on a downward trend.

Again, try reading their financial reports, you are wrong. They made 1 billion in profits in 2011 over 416mil in 2010, with WoW and CoD being their main earners. This is fact. This is not debatable. This is not opinion. It's that simple.

Downward decline? Try Google. 2011 profits were way up over 2010 for Activision/Blizzard. A company that is bringing in 1 Billion dollar a year profits is not sold off because they aren't making enough money.

Vivendi has other reasons for selling Activision/Blizzard and I think it has absolutely nothing to do with how much revenue they are generating. If anything they are selling the company off now because they are at peak, have seen one of the best years (if not the best) they have ever had and someone will pay top dollar for them.

Vivendi itself is having a lot of financial problems from what I've read and their own shares aren't doing so well. $10 Billion will probably go a long way in getting them out of the trouble they are in.

/facepalm. I don't think you know what IP (Intellectual Property) even means.

Narbacular Drop is an Intellectual Property. Portal is an IP. Left 4 Dead is an IP. Counter-Strike is an IP. Half-Life is an IP. These are all ORIGINAL IP's based on other game concepts.

Very little in the industry at this point is actually "original".

Your CoD example is like saying Half-Life isn't an original IP because it's a first-person shooter, and wasn't the first.

Basically at this point you are grasping at anything to support your weak argument, and you just look dumb doing it.

Companies hire people to get their creations. Sometimes they have already created something before hired, sometimes after, sometimes it's just a proof-of-concept when hired, etc. Narbacular Drop was a STUDENT project, not made by a company. They hired those students to expand on their ideas, while incorporating some of their experienced existing staff into the design process.

TF guys were just random guys, not a company, that were all hired by Valve. Counter-Strike & DoDs same thing. Turtle Rock was absorbed by Valve after years of just making stuff for Valve anyways.

So no, they are not like EA at all. They don't buy out companies then shut them down 6 months to a couple years later. Valve has NEVER done that.

So why fault a good company for hiring talented people and allowing those people to make a great living off their ideas?
