News Comments > Alien: Isolation Sales Disappoint
53. Re: Alien: Isolation Sales Disappoint May 12, 2015, 02:54 Jerykk
 
Shame. I enjoyed Isolation quite a bit and would love to see a sequel but I'd be surprised if that ever happens. SEGA isn't exactly in the best financial shape and they're looking to minimize risk wherever possible. The report says that they want to focus on mobile and F2P PC games, which pretty much says it all. Oh well. I appreciate the risk they took with Isolation, even if it didn't meet their unrealistic expectations.

GOG Galaxy is pretty barebones right now. Doesn't even show download speed.

Summons are super handy during boss fights. Mainly for the distraction they provide while your team dishes out the damage.

Very happy to hear that they're making another Expeditions game. I thought the first one was great. I also thought it sold like crap but maybe I was wrong?

"Hey you've bought Witcher 3, why not download it using our new convenient game client."

It's optional, but surely they want people to use the thing they've spent time and money on developing. Pairing it up with their major game release makes sense.

I don't know if they plan to be a "Steam competitor" like a lot of commentary has claimed, but if so they'll want a good install base.

Sure, but that has absolutely nothing to do with this Witcher 3 key dispute. If GOG was obsessed with getting people to use Galaxy, they would make it a requirement for Witcher 3, much like EA makes Origin a requirement for their games and Ubisoft requires Uplay for their games. Hell, CDPR could go full EA and simply stop releasing their games on Steam (easily their biggest competitor) entirely. But you don't need to use Galaxy to play Witcher 3. You don't even need to use GOG. If you buy it on Steam, you'll just download and install the game from Steam. Pretty sure that applies to Origin and Uplay too (the two other "authorized" sellers of the game).

Nice theory, except they are NOT illegitimate keys. CD Projekt is just trying to push people into the abysmal Galaxy client by only offering a good deal on GOG (This is why I think store, developer and publisher should never be 1 and the same...)

Except GOG is selling the game for the same price as Steam (their biggest competitor). And again, Witcher 3 does not require Galaxy.

It's fine to be angry and all that but you guys really should do more research before jumping to conclusions.

GOG/CDPR are not fans of regional pricing. If I bought Witcher 3 from them I'd pay about $75, but they'd give me about $20 in GOG store credit to compensate.

They generally do the right thing, but in this case it does sound like they're trying to push people towards Galaxy.

Not sure how this has anything to do with Galaxy. Galaxy is completely optional. You don't need it to play Witcher 3.

The bottom section is just more detail on what those DLC packs are but this seems like a lot of DLC to me. Arkham Knight just seems to be going farther and I don't see why people care if there is a season pass versus needing to buy things individually.

It's a matter of perception, really. A handful of low-cost DLCs aren't as offensive as a $40 season pass. The fact that no actual details were included with the initial announcement also added to the problem, as people likely assumed it would just be skins and challenge maps like in the previous games. Had the announcement talked about the story-based DLC, I think the reception would have been less negative.

Don't the "Mercenaries" games over the last few years fall into that category? At least in every way but the setting?

An open-world Wolfenstein could be great. It would be like Saboteur, only with the setting, technology and combat of TNO.

Not at all. Mercenaries has more in common with Just Cause than Wolfenstein.

It feels like someone is manipulating the press with this season pass news. It's not like we haven't seen a season pass this expensive or complicated. Bf and call of Duty do it every year. I don't see why anyone cares. It's like someone got IGN to write that article about how this season pass was absurd so people start talking about it and now they release this specific info and the real purpose is simply to get this info in front of as any eyes as possible. I'd certainly never read about what's in this pass otherwise. But here I am reading the details.

I'm feeling pretty skeptical about this game. The vibe I've gotten from press that's seen stuff seems like it's missing it's mark. Not a terrible game, just full if features that don't seem to thrill anyone.

BF and CoD (and their respective publishers) have already been established as cashcow franchises with overpriced DLC. Batman, until now, has not. If Dishonored 2 or any other critical darling has a $40 season pass, rest assured that there will be outrage.

Every industry on the planet does this, selling the base product close to cost and then marking up the consumables, spares and accessories.

You don't have to buy it. Or you wait a year and by the GOTY for next to nothing. It's priced the way it is because people buy it and wont go away until we all stop.

What's surprising is that people support such absurd pricing for completely optional content. It's not like buying printer ink or gas for your car. Those are necessities. DLC is not and yet people apparently still pay exorbitant prices for it. Mass Effect Trilogy routinely goes on sale for $10, yet if you want all the DLC, you'll have to pay around $100.

This looks far more substantial than the Origins season pass. But still not worth $40. If the Season Pass costs $40 and the base game costs $60, WBIE is essentially saying that the SP cost 66% as much to develop as the base game. Assuming that the base game had a development budget of $50 million (which is fairly conservative), that means this season pass cost $33 million to develop? I think not.

$15 would be a much more reasonable price.

ME3 was the best overall game in the series. Sure, the ending sucked but that was maybe 1% of the game. Everything else, from the progression system to the loot to the AI to the level design and enemy variety were definitely a step up from the previous games.

It's sad that people tend to fixate on the bad while ignoring all the good.

Id just like to see the ability to zoom out further with the tactical camera (along with better camera controls).

I think they've already added both through patches. I know they added a toggle for mouselook so you don't have to hold RMB.

News Comments > Watch Dogs 2 Clue?
16. Re: Watch Dogs 2 Clue? Apr 30, 2015, 12:30 Jerykk
 
Definitely looking forward to a sequel. I enjoyed the first game quite a bit.

The city in WD wasn't alive enough.

How so? There were tons of NPCs walking around and doing ambient activities. You could hack into each one's phone, learning their identity, hobbies, medical history, etc, and eavesdrop on their conversations. The NPCs in WD were more interesting than the NPCs in any other open-world game.

I'm not sure I can put my finger on exactly what was wrong with the game, but the shooting and movement felt off to me. The protagonist also seemed flat and boring from the little I played. I wasn't even hyped on the game; I picked it up when it was on sale (after multiple patches), not expecting much, and I still found it underwhelming. I love open world games in general, but compared with Saints Row 4, GTA5, Infamous Second Son (and First Light), Sunset Overdrive, and even AC: Rogue, I found WD really subpar.

WD starts off pretty slowly. All the interesting abilities are locked behind the skill tree, the first set of missions aren't that interesting and the interesting side-missions aren't immediately available. Also, the game is generally more interesting if you play it like a stealth game (and enjoy stealth games). The combat was okay but trying to sneak around using hacking to distract and manipulate guards was way more compelling.

It isn't an RPG. It's pure combat. It has more in common with XCOM than Shadowrun Returns or Dragonfall.

Apparently the last update added a lot of features, content and bug fixes that significantly improve the game. Most of the negative reviews are from the Early Access period where the game was pretty barebones.

That said, the price tag seems a bit hefty. $30 (25% off the regular $40 price) while SR and SD are only $15 each at full price?

EDIT: I am however pretty excited about what looks to be like some kind of coop mode, with coop moves (batman helps robin jump onto an enemy at 1:49). I've wanted a coop mode in these games, so this will most likely do it for me (provided they don't force the tank stuff too much)

Pretty sure it's not co-op. You'll be able to switch between characters in certain sections of the game.

News Comments > Steam Ending Paid Mods; Providing Refunds
24. Re: Steam Ending Paid Mods; Providing Refunds Apr 27, 2015, 23:11 Jerykk
 
I think this would have been received very differently if it had been done with a different game. DotA2, CS:GO and TF2 have already monetized mods and nobody complains about them. This is because those games didn't have very strong mod communities to begin with. Conversely, Skyrim has had a strong modding community for 4 years. When you take things that used to be free and start charging for them (like popular Skyrim mods), people are going to get upset.
