Monolith aren't what they once were...

Monolith has made more shit games than good ones even since the very beginning. Their batting average hasn't changed.

That's not really true at all. What shit games have they made? Blood 2 and that LOTR MOBA come to mind. Some might include Gotham City Imposters. How many good games have they made? Blood, Shogo, NOLF, NOLF2, AVP2, FEAR and even FEAR2. They've definitely made more good games than bad.

Burial At Sea Ep 1 doesn't cost $20. Burial At Sea Ep 1 + Ep 2 + Clash in the Clouds costs $20. If each one provides a few hours of gameplay (which BAS Ep 1 and CitC have already done), that's about 9 hours of gameplay for $20. That's not a bad deal at all.

Also, it helps that I got the season pass for $10 instead of $20. It's generally a bad idea to pay full price for season passes.

Hate the fact Arkham Origins isn't in this list. The game has gotten an unfair amount of bashing. The game is completely on par with the prequels!

I think you've answered your own question. It's on par. It adds nothing new. It's MOTS. That's why it's getting bashed, IMO.

Except there are plenty of sequels/prequels that are just more of the same but still get high scores. As I mentioned before, it has everything to do with hype and marketing. More hype and marketing = higher scores, regardless of how innovative the game actually is. The CoD games haven't really evolved (many would say they've actually devolved) since CoD4 yet they still get 8's and 9's every year. Same with Battlefield, Assassin's Creed, Gears of War, Halo, Killzone, Uncharted, Mass Effect, GTA, etc. Another big factor is the developer. If the sequel/prequel isn't done by the original developer, reviewers tend to be a lot less forgiving and a lot more demanding. Watch as the next Rocksteady Batman game gets 9's with only incremental improvements to the core gameplay.

The combat works, but you don't really have to do anything - if you wanted, you could even not attack and just counter whenever your bat senses go off.

That's not actually true at all. You can't counter the shield guys or stun baton guys or guys who charge you, nor can you counter guys shooting at you. Countering knife guys is way more involved than just tapping the Counter key too. The armored guys can be countered, but you'll never actually defeat them with just counters alone. Origins throws in a few more enemy types that require more than just countering too. If you tried to play Arkham City or Origins by just standing there and pressing Counter, you'd fail. And if you want extra challenge, just turn off the Counter prompts.

As for Origins' critical reception, I'm not too surprised. It wasn't made by Rocksteady, it didn't have a lot of hype or marketing and it's basically just more of the same. Only heavily-hyped series like CoD, BF or Assassin's Creed can get away with more of the same and only when it's from an established developer.

Is Blood Dragon just Far Cry 3 with a retro 80's vibe or does it do its own thing?

Basically just FC3 with a 80's sci-fi vibe.

The same trailer, the same game, the same people buying it, year after year after year after year.

It's gotta be cool to make your money that easily. Copy / paste 95% of your code, build a few new set pieces for your meager sp campaign, DONE!

Personally my COD days are long behind me, but if people enjoy it, and they obviously do with how much it still sells year after year, is there really a need to hate on it for the sake of it?

If you're not dropping the 60 bucks does it really affect you all that much?

The games that sell the best have a significant impact on other games. That's why regenerating health, two-weapon limits, aim assist, radar, kill streaks, etc, became commonplace. If something sells well, others will copy it. So yes, the purchasing habits of others does affect me quite a bit.

News Comments > Thief Trailer
25. Re: Thief Trailer Nov 3, 2013, 13:51 Jerykk
 
What reasons are those? The lack of manual jumping, even though the contextual navigation system will very likely be just as effective in getting you where you want to go? The ability to kill guards, even though you could easily do that in the previous games? Based on what I've seen and read, the new Thief looks to be pretty faithful to the series and a worthwhile entry in and of itself.

As for DX:HR, you are apparently in the minority of fans who didn't complain about:

1) The third-person camera cuts.
2) The cover system.
3) The streamlined melee.
4) The XP system.
5) The item outlines.
6) The yellow color scheme.
7) The combining of the XP and augmentation systems.
8) The multiplatform development.

According to many, the above issues were enough to justify condemning the game as an abject failure and utter disgrace to the series. I'm seeing the exact same thing happening with Thief, even though DX:HR proved that a handful of relatively minor issues aren't enough to ruin a game.

How could they have done so well in dx:hr and so wrong, so very wrong, with this - it doesn't really make much sense. Unless its suits. Wait. Who am i kidding, definitely suits designing the game. It's the only way it makes sense.

How can people condemn a game they know so little about and have never even played? Before DX:HR came out, it received the same criticisms that people are giving Thief. Lo and behold, once the game came out and these same people actually played it, they realized that the game was actually pretty damn good.

Wait until the game comes out and then judge it.

Yo, devs! Thief was never about just stealing shit! You got it ALL. FUCKING. WRONG! from the get-go.

What? Stealing shit has always been the foundation of the franchise. Thief 2 was the best in the series because it recognized and embraced this, whereas Thief 1 had a bunch of supernatural nonsense.

And for everyone complaining about the lack of gameplay footage, Youtube is your friend. There's plenty of gameplay footage available if you take 5 seconds to look for it.

They can't get publisher support for this game?

It's really not that surprising. How often do publishers put out racing games that aren't based on established franchises? And when they do put them out, how well do they sell? Blur is the last original, AAA racing game I can think of and it sold poorly.

Anyway, I think they should have lowered the minimum pledge required to get the game. $20 is not an impulse pledge and based on the lackluster funding they've received thus far, they definitely need impulse pledges.

The game is a cult classic. From a technical standpoint, it's a mess but the premise, setting and writing are very unique. It's like Twin Peaks meets Resident Evil. I wouldn't pay more than $5 for it, though, especially when the port is so half-assed.

I don't really understand why people object to having more games on Steam. You aren't obligated to buy them. If you're unsure if a game is worth buying, do some research. It's not rocket science. There's nothing wrong with having choices.

Not only do they cancel the game but they fire the entire team as well? Seems excessive but this is EA after all.

Actually, to be precise, thats not entirely a correct statement. From what I can tell, both ME1 and ME2 have all the DLC. Its ME3 that doesn't have much included. I think its the bigger DLC they don't include
And they have several DLC in the list that you can add into the account for free. Anytime I see free DLC, I always add it right then. Never know when they might start charging. Or like if its a limited time offer like the free SR4 GTA DLC thats was free for a couple days.

Not sure where you got your info from but the Mass Effect Trilogy is definitely missing most of the ME2 DLC. It doesn't include Lair of the Shadowbroker, Arrival, Overlord or Kasumi - Stolen Memory. Basically, all the DLC with any substance.

Yeah, that Burnley Comms Tower bug is pretty bad. No idea how that got past QA, as it is most likely a level design issue (broken/missing trigger) and therefore present in every version of the game. Luckily, restarting from a checkpoint gets you out of the room but still, that bug should have never made it through submission.

The Mass Effect Trilogy is actually missing most of the DLC. Not sure why EA even put the bundle together. The only way to get the DLC on PC is to use Bioware points, which never go on sale. If you want to buy all the DLC for ME3, you'll probably end up spending around $50, which is ludicrous considering that you can often find the base game for $5.

As for the lack of controller support, I imagine that has to do with the revamped UI in the PC versions of ME. They'd have to switch between UIs based on your active controller and apparently that's too much effort for them.

The first episode of Wolf Among Us is definitely better than the first episode of TWD.

Yes, Groupees is a legit bundle site. I've bought many random games from them (that I'll probably never play) and have no complaints.

One minor thing with these bundle sites, sometimes they're offering a Desura key or a drm-free version, and not a Steam key. In the example you gave, only the Exceed games are on Steam so if you just want to make your Steam library bigger, pay attention...

True, but if those Desura or DRM-free games eventually make it onto Steam, Groupees will usually give you a Steam key.

I'm fine with the memory requirement, even if it does seem excessive for a CoD game, but 40 gigs of HD space? Really? That's bigger than most MMOs. How exactly does a 4 hour shooter have that much content? Maybe every single texture in the game is 4096x4096? That's the only thing I can think of.

Shadow Warrior was surprisingly good. If they can make a Blood sequel/reboot of the same caliber, I'll definitely pick it up. Shame that the major media outlets basically ignored Shadow Warrior, though. Most of them didn't post any reviews until a week or two after launch.

Having issues with people somehow defending the idea of no manual jumping. It sucks as a matter of fact. No matter what excuse you make up. The major reason, that seems to be ignored indefinitely, is the fact that you can now no longer calculate a jump onto a set of boxes, for example, from a higher level up, to get a better position to either ghost past or knock out a guard.

There's no "we'll see" in this. It sucks. Period. How much the entire game will suck or not? We'll see, indeed.

You don't need to calculate a jump onto a set of boxes because the game will do it for you. As I mentioned earlier, the game uses an AC-style traversal system where the game automatically jumps for you. So, if there's a set of boxes you can jump on and you run towards it, you will automatically jump onto the set of boxes. Granted, removing the skill part of it is disappointing but you're still able to go where you want to go.

The lack of manual jumping really isn't that big of a deal if there are other systems that achieve the same results.
