News Comments > Fallout 4 Trailer

For me NV was just more of the same. That and it was incredibly buggy, with characters disappearing into the ground and mission breaking issues. I tried to give it a chance, especially as so many people here raved about it, but I didn't enjoy it at all. It played like a bad expansion.

People were hyping the fuck out of FO4 for months already based on mere rumors about it. Now they finally show this stuff and while it's not crap per se I cannot honestly believe that anyone here was actually impressed by the trailer. Sure, it's fallout, and evidently that alone is already enough for people to jerk off on but don't expect me to believe that anyone here -- anyone! -- is truly looking back at this trailer thinking even remotely the excitement they expressed here by just giving way to their biased fanboy.
The problem is that there are people that are genuinely excited. Some of my friends were talking about it on Facebook. Me, I just don't get it and I say that as someone who enjoyed Fallout 3 and didn't find the writing as bad as many make out (yes, I liked Oblivion and Skyrim too).

It's like I loved X-COM: Enemy Unknown but the trailer to X-COM 2 didn't get me excited. I'll almost certainly pick up the game at or near launch but there was nothing for me to get excited about.

Fallout 4 will probably be a very enjoyable game but this was a bad trailer.

I enjoyed F3 and F:NV for years, but I can't help but feel like this looks like more of the same. Not even the engine, as others have stated, but the entire environment, approach, characters, etc.: I'm getting a "been there, done that" feel instead of what I would've expected from a new numbered iteration.
That's the problem for me. I look at this and think 'I've played this before'. I really couldn't get into New Vegas as it seemed like a Fallout 3 mod and I'd just burnt myself out completing that. The environments all look the same.

What's up with the X360 / PS3 era graphics? And why does the dog have flat textures for fur and walk like a malfunctioning robot with joint problems?

Not impressed. I'm sure the gameplay will be fine but they seriously need a decent engine.

Spoken with all the knowledge and experience of 0 minutes of playing HOTS. I have played the game for a few months now, and have yet to spend a single cent on it.
I didn't say you HAD to spend money, I simply stated that those who pay money get an advantage. It takes a long time and a lot of grind to earn enough gold to unlock all the characters, whereas every character is available for purchase immediately.

InBlack wrote on Jun 3, 2015, 06:48:
If anything this game is P2L or Pay to Lose, since people who cant be bothered to learn the characters, and mechanics of the game and simply use real money for everything will suck completely and utterly with it.
Don't be ridiculous. All things being equal the person who pays for characters has the advantage.

InBlack wrote on Jun 3, 2015, 06:48:
Also lol at the grind comment, I spend very little time on this game, perhaps half an hour on average each day and yet have managed to acquire nearly half the heroes currently available and have never felt even close to the frustration with some other F2P games which shall remain nameless. Compared to most F2P games, there is very little grind here.
You've played for months and earned less than half of all the available characters. Others will cave and pay immediately, giving them the advantage. Hearthstone had the same P2W mechanics. Dota 2 doesn't have any of this bullshit to deal with.

This is a bad business model. I'd rather pay outright for a game than deal with a grindy shitfest. Do you know how much it costs to buy all the characters? It's $160. Fuck that. After Valve offered such a gamer friendly business model I don't know why people are happy to defend this nonsense. Blizzard makes EA look altruistic.

Uhh, yeah. There's nothing P2W about it.
Other than the entire business model. Hiding characters behind a paywall makes it P2W, something that Dota 2 doesn't do. Sure you can acquire them through gold but players that spend real money on the game have an advantage.

Valve got the business model just right with Dota 2, whereas HotS is all about grind and microtransactions.

HotS is like Dota 2 only it's frustrating, it has worse graphics, it's based around grind / P2W, the gameplay is all spam and... well, yeah.

I really hate Blizzard's P2W business model. Hearthstone was ruined because of it. Valve nailed it with Dota 2, which is why this is so frustrating.

That Polygon article was one of the worst I've ever read. It's astonishing that anyone could be so self-absorbed as to make the entire article about them. They don't deserve their job.

Hopefully these drivers aren't as shit as 352.86, as I've been having constant crashes on the desktop. That and I've been getting graphics issues with HotS, so hopefully this will address that.

nVidia's drivers have been getting worse recently.

Meteorologically summer starts the 1st June; astronomically it starts the 22nd June. So really it comes down to semantics.

I'm guessing it will go for $499 unbundled. You heard it here first.
Unlikely, as it was previously claimed it would sell for between $200 and $400. The dev units were sold for $300-350, so I wouldn't expect much more than that. I imagine the OR will be $300-350 and the HTC Vive $400-500.

I don't understand why they'd discuss the price of the PC in such a way, as that's going to put people off. The people it's targeted at will already own a PC and will be able to cheaply upgrade if they're specs aren't quite up to the job. I'm hoping my GTX 970 SLI setup will do the job in demanding games (particularly Star Citizen).

Does anyone know if the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive will support dynamic refresh rates? Having to hit 75-90fps will be a major problem otherwise with vsync.

Unless the CEO is responsible for accounts that's a bullshit excuse. And if he is... well, that's not exactly reassuring.

Looks terrible. All they had to do was licence the EGO engine from Codemasters and it would have been a slam dunk. In fact the licence should have been given to a credible developer in the first place.

News Comments > DOOM Reveal at E3
73. Re: DOOM Reveal at E3 May 19, 2015, 06:34 theyarecomingforyou
 
Doom 3 was really weak. The limitations of the engine meant small levels and a limited number of enemies on screen, which was completely out of character for the franchise. The attempt at a story was insulting in comparison to the other games of the era - either stick to the basics (like Painkiller did) or add a decent story. The monster closets ruined the experience for most people, as it was yet another cheap gameplay mechanic. I'm all for developers taking chances and expanding on a franchise but Doom 3 simply did a bad job - it removed the classic traits and made the gameplay tedious.

For me, even though we've only seen a few frames and some screenshots, the warning bells are all ringing. They should have licensed a decent engine, hired someone who has a background in storytelling and made a true next-gen game. Instead they're using an engine that was shit for the last gen. Take the Revenant - the quality is appalling (low poly, low texture quality, poor animations). The shotgun and animations are also really, really weak.

The industry has moved on and id Software is stuck in the past. This game looked a train wreck when the original art was released / leaked (?) all those years ago and sadly it hasn't improved. I'll wait for more videos before making any decision but I can't see myself getting this game.

These are all really minor changes. Which really don't seem to address many of the complaints I've heard.
Yeah, nothing here makes me think 'this is a developer that really responds to the community'.

News Comments > Alien: Isolation Sales Disappoint
26. Re: Alien: Isolation Sales Disappoint May 11, 2015, 13:59 theyarecomingforyou
 
We didn't need another Aliens Vs Predator. That's been played out. The problem was that stealth was forced by making all the enemies strong and the alien invincible, while the levels forced you to go back to the same areas. That was combined with objectives that were unclear, meaning you were just following around a market on the minimap or the motion detector - it ruined the immersion.

The strength of video games is allowing players to find their own approach. Forcing stealth with cheap instakills is simply bad game design.

I was hoping for a game like Deus Ex: Human Revolution, where you could approach levels as you wanted - guns blazing or stealth. What I ended up with was a game where if you dare to walk you'll get instakilled by the alien. Meh.

The game absolutely looked the part but it just wasn't fun. Not really surprising given it was their first time making a FPS game. Hopefully they get a chance to respond to the feedback and make a better sequel, though it seems unlikely.
