News Comments > Steam Top 10

I am not a LOTR fan... I mean, I like the movies... But I don't go around gobbling up everything with their name.

Plus, for the most part, just about any game made from movie/book IP is crap...

But I looked into some gameplay yesterday for Shadow of Mordor, and it looks fun... Yes, the combat looks like batman... Climbing shit looks like AC, which is a good thing...

But the way they're doing the advancement, both the rune system, and the Sauron Army part, looks great (mostly the latter). Combine some subterfuge, with some sabotage, some stealth kills, and some direct free for all combat, and I like what I'm seeing.

So I pre-ordered from GMG for 25% off : )

One of the vids that helped is here.

You seriously believe that Minecraft is going to be staying on the PC? Really?

BWWAAAAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA

That was a good one, dude.

wh.....what? It's already on consoles, dude, for quite some time.

Yeah but the point is it won't be on the PC for much longer and become console exclusive. Only an old, unsupported version will work on PCs.
But, yeah, you guys go ahead and keep believing in Microsoft's noble intentions.
I will be laughing my ass off while they turn this into a 100% Xbone and Xbox Live Gold service game.

No business is noble... Businesses make money... Which is why Minecraft will stay on PC...

As for 'Minecraft 2'... Does it matter? There are already a handful of competitors that do it so much better in so many ways... Brand is one thing, but we'll see (hopefully) some of the better products gain more followers.

News Comments > Skyforge Paladin Class Video
7. Re: Skyforge Paladin Class Video Sep 9, 2014, 10:37 Alamar
 
This is the first time I recall hearing about this game... And I think it looks fairly good. Not interested enough to go to the site, but if it comes out, and isn't overpriced, I'll take a gander...

I find the Paladin complaints ironic... Warrior/Mage/Cleric/Rogue are staples, and don't seem to get that kind of 'hate'. And really, it's just a name... The interesting parts, to me, are the variety in play styles... Paladin's in WoW play very differently than Paladin's in other games... It's just another recognizable word, where people can assume something faith/holy based, and a sword n board : )

I can see there's a concerted push for 4k gaming being a huge deal and even though I have a 1440p monitor I still prefer to game on a 1080p res screen. I'm sure I'll get there eventually with system upgrades but it's going to be several years from now just from looking at the prices of monitors that I've seen, the inexpensive 4k TV's are all 30hz at 4k.


Only $2500...

That sounded like a different voice for Jack... Which... Really turns me off. It doesn't seem to have that whiny, cocky, attitudinal voice I was expecting...

And Prez, my stats for BL 1 are about what you mentioned, including ratio of SP to MP.

Edit: Just checked.. Same actor... Not sure if it's my memory, or he really just sounds different.

Maybe it's because I'm older, but any time I see MOBA in the title, I'm automatically uninterested, and it needs to prove something...

I'm going to start announcing some SOBA games (Singleplayer Offline Battle Arena)...

Does anyone care ?
Yes. I want this game.

Why?

Because, like every title people on here bitch and whine about, it's not as bad as they claim...

Plus, you know... Different opinions/interests/etc...

I thoroughly enjoyed it. The fighting style took some adjusting, and was too easy in many ways, but otherwise it looked and played great.

I've paid just about no interest to this title... I loved the first, and while I think the second is a better game in most ways, just couldn't get into it as much...

But I just did a youtube search, and clicked on a 'Claptrap gameplay vid', and 2s into it, he jumps... Now I can't play the game if they're going to mess with 'the lore'!

“What I learned from doing the first campaign is that while some people cared about multiplayer, the vast majority of people who were excited about the game were excited about the single-player campaign and mod support,”

TLDR nothing more to add

Just for you bluesnewsers constantly trying to piddle coop as the next coming, coop is nice to have, but many games can be UTTERLY ruined by MP

I'm all for a good SP campaign, but coop makes nearly any SP game better : )

what the point in call it kings quest then ? Those who know the games from the past will expect a point and click adventure. Those not knowing the name from the past wont buy it because its called kings quest.....

Those that really know the games from the past will expect no mouse interaction, and everything will be typed : )

I'm really confused by this. In Warcraft 3 it was revealed that the orcs in Warcraft 1 and 2 were assholes because of demonic influence. So in this "alternate timeline", they rejected the demonic influence...yet are doing the same damn thing?

How does that make any sense?

Play the game to find out?

Sierra was, by far, my fav company back then (25 years ago)... I had a great, under the table, summer job... and half my check went to them every week heh... I think I bought a dozen Sierra games that summer.

That's also when I first taught myself to code, and sent a few letters to Sierra, getting very encouraging responses both times. Apparently, they used a custom mix of C and Pascal at the time : )

I'm apparently in the minority, but I bought this with my XBone, and I enjoyed it... I enjoyed the story, and this is the first time (outside of Dragon's Lair), where I've played a game with this kind of control scheme... It wasn't challenging, but it was interesting enough to keep me going until the end.

Sadly, my XBone has been in a box since I tried to take it back a week after I bought it, so I've barely touched the other game I picked it up with (Dead Rising 3).

News Comments > Out of the Blue

I like spicy food, though I won't order the hottest thing on the menu... I've had some too hot food, and it's a waste of money...

I never wear pants... I shovel 2ft of snow off my driveway in shorts... I do wear a coat though.

I generally don't care about celebrities... Except Blue... : )

I shave twice a week, because my favorite facial time is the day after shaving, when it's short and pokey : )

Cute article though... Being cracked, it's not surprising they go over the top with their ravings, but I've definitely seen examples of 4 of those ; )

Oh, and I need my sleep... Which reminds me of one time when I was... About 12, I 'slept' over at a friends place, but ended up playing on his family's C64 all night... I didn't own one, and the only times I got to play on them previous to that, was when visiting my aunt, because I would go to the mall in front of her place, and play on the C64 there for hours : )
