News Comments > Ships Ahoy - XCOM: Enemy Within
27. Re: Ships Ahoy - XCOM: Enemy Within Nov 12, 2013, 16:34 Yosemite Sam
 
I have a question about the upgrades to the game... did they do anything to the base to make it more alive and to also reflect the state of the game? I seem to remember that other then the alien containment, which showed an alien in containment if you captured one, nothing in the base reflected the state of your game. So the exact same people would be hanging out in med bay regardless of how many of your soldiers were actually injured and in need of medical attention. It's one of those things that Rockstar gets so right and so many other devs seem to just skip over, attention to the little details.

Warcraft has to be one of my favorite RTS games. I really liked CoH but so much got lost in RTS games when having to get your own resources got dropped from the genre. Chopping down trees and mining added so much to a game, but I guess all that work and time was too much for the ADD crowd. Now were lucky if you have to gather even one resource never mind two.

That wasn't the problem with RTS. The problem is it became too much to manage because unit AI for autoharvesting tended to be bad. Note how good harvesting is in starcraft 2 compared to previous RTS games for instance.

It free's up time to manage your units during battle when you don't have to babysit your economy.

In small scale RTS games you'd be right, but the more units you have to control the more it's just had user interface and game design getting in the way of managing large scale armies.

Ya I can see your point when it comes to huge scale, like say Supreme Commander, but SC didn't dump it's economy, just moved it all into base building. AoE was pretty huge scale and it also had the largest economy, 4 if I remember correctly, and it had complex base building too. It was very manageable (I found it easier then CoH) but you had to plan, build up your resources and your base. It took time, time most people don't want to invest in a game, which is why they... simplify ... everything now. Make the games easier and quicker, straight into the action and game over inside of 30 min.

You see another ship floating in space.
You enter the ship.
A member of your crew gets killed. You can't do nothing about it and didn't know this could happen.
This happens 3 times in one playthrough. You exit the game. You uninstall it.
Why did you do it another 2 times after it failed the first time? lol.

Either way its a rogue-like, if you can even make it to the boss you've done very well

Have you ever played the game? Because you can find useful stuff in those space ships. And very often you depend on that stuff.

Well, it's just not my kind of game. I don't want to depend on luck too much, because my luck level is always close to 0.

There's pretty much zero luck involved with those encounters. You either have the right ship upgrades and\or crew members or you don't. If you do, you'll be successful 100% of the time. If you don't you'll fail 100% of the time.

Really enjoying it so far. The voices alone are awesome, and while I thought I'd hate the "hurry up and get the Meld!" gameplay, I'm actually being more aggressive because of it, which leads to cooler firefights.

Also enjoying the new Second Wave options a lot, though I'm wondering if there will be a Save Scummer achievement.

Nice, I'll get this one, in the future, on the cheap. Too many games right now, got 4 or 5 I haven't touched on the PS3 and another 6 on the PC to get to... and that doesn't even cover old titles I still enjoy, been feeling a CIV itch a coming.

Not ADD, but still don't like the old resource management options. You're penalized too hard for losing early foragers. You still have to gather resources in CoH, but it's more objective based, which is better for the game.

... and that's different then say losing your first few units in CoH? All RTS games are going to be painful if you lose units early in the game. The only real difference between the games is pace. CoH is a fast paced over quick game. Warcraft and the like are more strategy, building and resource based games that take more time and planning to play. I'll take another AoE over Warhammer any day of the week, but we'll never see it because most people simply don't want to invest the time or thought into it. ADD is an exaggeration but it's basically true.

Ya that's a half truth click gathering headline... but the reality is Sony seems to have changed the wording on their UK ToS. Which could allow them to, at some point, revoke the ability to resell games. Could also just be a fuckup by some employee who posted an old ToS. No way in hell Sony could be that stupid to change their policy after everything that's happened.

Not that I'm advocating cheating (perish the thought! *thinks back to the fact that he's cheated in every single single-player game he's ever played* heh) but if you look at the video (and can stand the guy's 'uh, but ya' over and over and over and...ARGH!) at about 1:42, you'll see that it says that if you leave a job too many times with finishing it, you'll be put in the pool as well. I wouldn't say that's cheating, just being a pain in the ass...fine line? *shrugs*


=-Rigs-=

The problem I've seen on reddit is griefer attacks you in car, you blow up griefers car (to kill him), but you get flagged as a bad sport for blowing up his car. Even though he was the aggressor. Dumb.



Um you have pistols, shotguns, sub machine guns, assault rifles, heavy machine guns and sniper guns. I don't get the 'I had to blow up his car' line because I pull out a machine gun and simply kill them in their car. As a pedestrian you have the advantage, you can autolock on them but they can't do that while driving, net result is you decorate the interior of their vehicle in red.

I would like to see Rockstar implement a forgive option though, for those times you accidentally destroy someones car. As in blowing up a crew members car while dealing with a swarm of bikers on a mission.

When I just wan't to play around without dealing with dicks I simply start a crew only session. When I'm in the mood to deal with griefers I go public, they don't seem to like it when you don't go all explosive on them and simply shoot them again and again and again. The new trick they use is using the car you cant kill them from behind. Had some dude try this on me last night, kept trying to gun me down by driving around in his car backwards so I couldn't shoot back. I simply went where he could not follow and at my first opportunity while he was trying to re position, decorated the interior of his car. Course after that he doesn't respawn in his magic car anymore, he didn't seem to enjoy the dance so much at that point.

I've noticed a few of the 'die hard' COD players on my friends list are not playing ghosts, and speaking to a friend who has been a day one COD player he has no interest in this game. Might just be people are waiting to play on the next gen, might be CODs run is over... well you know, as in in decline, I'm sure they will still sell a lot.

Definitely will not buy this for the current gen console. Probably at least a year or more away from buying a next gen console. So hopefully by then I'll be able to get it for the PC, because I do prefer to FPS on a PC, but I'll FPS on the next gen console if that's my only option.

PS4 will not play MP3s, will not support connecting external storage such as flash drives, and will not stream media from other devices like your PC.

Hate to do it, but I think I might be switching to Xbone. I don't like having a lot of devices hooked to my TV and a lot of remotes floating around, so I need one box that can do it all.

Unfortunately that's the Xbone. Fuck.

I would have been pissed about the media stream, it's one reason I bought the PS3, but I switched to Popcorn a few years back. PS3 had too many issues with different containers and codecs. Not playing MP3s kinda sucks though, what about games that allow you to stream your own music, I liked that feature.

I don't know, I think I'm kinda done with the CoD formula that was way better done in older games like Counter-Strike anyway. I agree that Destiny looks more promising in at least it's trying new things.

Yeah, it's kind of like Borderlands meets WoW. But the gun play doesn't seem to have any physics, the aliens seem generic.

I dunno, this gameplay video just seemed boring to me. Maybe it plays better than it watches.

Edit: for example, despite my preference for sci fi over real life, I found The Division gameplay and story more compelling than Destiny.

More like Borderlands meets Halo meets Resistance meets Mass Effect meets Fallout. Not sure what you mean about 'generic' aliens, which ones the Vex? Hive? Fallen? Cabal? or player races Exo? Awoken? What exactly was generic about that battle where multiple coop teams joined together in a huge human vs AI battle with drop ships dumping aliens and huge boss like machines... because I've never seen anything like it before and I've been around since pong.

A massive open world, um worlds, characters you can upgrade and lvl up. Personal spaceships you can use to travel all over the solar system to battle on Venus, Mars, Europa and the Moon... they have even hinted at having space battles too. All built around a coop system where you can join up with friends to battle against multiple alien races on multiple planets and moons and even join up with other groups of coop players in massive battles. I've knocked Halo, but that wasn't due to the way it played, Bungie nailed that aspect, it was their level design I couldn't take and they seem to have improved that aspect drastically in this game. This game is at the top of my most anticipated list.

I'm looking forward to The Division and Watch Dogs too but how are they not just another 'generic' take on the genre GTA started.
