News Comments > Ships Ahoy - Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

The sailing segments in AC3 were some of the most fun I've had in any game, ever. Just the sense of scope, that's all it took to hook me.

Despite that, AC3 was such a shit-fest of an ending to what should have been an epic trilogy that I'll never pay for an AC game again.

Windows is dying.

Windows is dead and has been for a very long time. Win2k, outside of security problems, was the last version of windows that added anything necessary. Since then it's only been driver support, spyware and unnecessary services, and for some reason those add up to requiring exponentially more RAM and 4GB+ of HDD space to accommodate something that could, and should, exist in a few MB of RAM and used to have <1GB of a footprint. Microsoft has survived on a strategic monopoly since the late 90s. I wish they'd died a lot sooner.

If linux or apple had 100% backward compatibility with the legacy of Windows software, they would easily have claimed the majority of market share by now. I hate Microsoft so much. Despite the wonder of the modern age of computing, I fault them for thousands of hours of lost productivity.

Still, they're making some assumptions on her behavior at the time, and it would be no loss to them if they gave it back to her. It's ones and zeroes at the end of the day, just like all our currency.

This game will never see the light of day, at least in the form that people are hoping for. These kinds of videos aren't cheap or easy to produce, and even if they're outsourcing the production of them while they develop the game, they're wasting a lot of time with this marketing of a nonexistent product.

GOG FTW!
FTL also has an "abrupt" ending, I saw little to no complains about that in the past. I guess that the lack of plot and the unlocking of new stuff during the gameplay made the return to the hangar less painful.

In FTL, it's clear from the first moment where the game "ends". You see a map from start to finish, and you're told "endgame is here".
In fact, it was a little surprising how much gameplay was in that last sector anyway.
Regardless, from what I gather Dark Matter has actual narrative. If you pay for a film that ends after act 1, you'd find it unacceptable as well.

GOG is too nice... Since this is drm-free, it's basically GOG giving the game away for free. I would rather they kept the money and stayed afloat or improved...

I don't think they're having any trouble staying afloat.

You must feel like such a dumbshit when you have to publicly release statements like:
"...Wild Games Studio sincerely apologizes to TotalBiscuit..."

Heh.

And do check out the "I broke Day One" video, because it's an amazing example of how shit the game is. I personally love broken games for the laugh factor, so I went to PB to grab a copy, and literally EVERYONE on there was saying "Just... don't bother."

Not just this game. The entire game industry has been retardedly-hooked on "idle animations" for WAY too long. Motherfuckers cannot stand still, it's just too "unrealistic".

This is the most brazen money-grab of all time.

Shouldn't these assholes be more concerned with developing their overly-budgeted game, than running fan contests and partaking in a reality show?!

I don't recall any point in time when consoles threatened the quality of PCs, and I regularly play both.

I'm playing the game on PS3 as well. Didn't like GTA4 either, but this is definitely the best they've made. What the last few games lacked in writing and narrative, this one does so fucking well with the three characters and their interwoven story. It's fucking fantastic. Gameplay is what it has been since GTA3, so there's no real surprises there, but the writing in this one is unbelievably good.

News Comments > Elite: Dangerous Trailer
5. Re: Elite: Dangerous Trailer Sep 15, 2013, 13:54 Ludomancer
 
I, too, want to believe. I've been waiting 20 years for a game to bring me the experience of Elite 2. I haven't found a game yet that can do it.

Slightly skeptical about the trailer, because even though it's probably prerendered within their game engine, it's still prerendered and there's a lot of post effects going on there (so basically worth what your typical cinematic trailer is).
What concerns me a bit more is that they're aiming for the cinematic vibe at all.

I just want a galaxy, a ship, and a fuck-ton of possibilities. I would play another Elite game today even if it looked like the original and just had improved user interface and accessibility.

If you like RCR, just look up the Kunio-kun series. There are more than 20 games in the RCR franchise, (only a handful that are brawlers, but still) the west never acknowledges them.

This is the third 'official' RCR reboot/sequel that I know of since 2005. One of those was by the original team members, and still magically disappeared. Save your money.

News Comments > id: RAGE "Not Dead"
10. Re: id: RAGE Aug 4, 2013, 15:20 Ludomancer
 
To be fair, Rage was much better than expected. I did have extremely low expectations.

That said, it's hilarious that iD can deviate 1-degree from their normal genre and say something like: " I'm still proud that we did something that was different it wasn't like the games that we've done in the past."
That speaks of a level of self-reflection and understanding of "the bigger picture" that's on the same level as media-brainwashed, 12 year old CoD fanatic.

Additionally, while the tech was awesome, did anyone consider how ridiculous an idea it was to create a game with the most attention to detail to date, with insanely hand-rendered environments where everything had it's own, unique touch, and then make the entire thing about racing through them so quickly you didn't bother to stop and look?
That strikes me as much more of a failure than the gameplay itself. iD = iDetached (from reality).

Yeah, it's a clever trick developers have played on the consumer world, making people pay for incomplete products. Oh well...
Is the game any good?

No, they might check the directory and files to verify it's not something pirated from Steam itself, but otherwise it would be taboo for Steam to modify an application released by someone else.

Thanks for the sale!
It might cause Steam to add DRM to a GOG game, both Steam and GOG sell. You can always log into Steam, then run your nonSteam game, using the UI and Friends functions, without adding it to Steam.

Seems like progress, until you consider the Federal Government routinely bowls over state laws whenever it pleases, as will probably be the case here.
Still, good to know such quick, official action is being taken in light of the news.

Rattlehead wrote on Wow, you're the judge and jury of others opinions? Get out of here with that high horse attitude. People are entitled to like whatever they damn well please [/quote:

Maybe I chose the wrong words, but I was basically saying:
1)I know the guy and can verify for his shortcomings.
2) The game has merit.

It's understandable if anyone would go either way with their opinion on it, and really my response was to level out the frank "don't support this" comment, because you could be boycotting something that would, albeit by a miracle, be the greatest game ever made.

I totally understand the urge to shit on people, especially Fish, but you can't knock it till you try it, et al.
