The new missions might be fun but what for? Only to end up at level 60 and to go back to grinding dailies or to stealth-rush through the same FPs (and OPs but only if you have a guild and lots of free time) over and over and over again. Yawn. What a bore.
They'd have to completely change the entire end game to ever rekindle my interest in this game.
As it stands, the game is decent as long as you are leveling up through the well executed class stories. But once you're max level, it turns into an uninspired retarded repetitive grindfest with very poor gameplay just like most other MMOs.

Fuck yeah let's execute some no-knock warrants on the wrong homes and maybe flashbang a 6 month old in their crib.

Flashbanging six months olds is kinda boring cuz them fuckers are way too small to really get annoyed and you can't even knock them off their feet cuz they are already lying down in their crib. Fuck, if you're really unlucky they might even think it's some kinda new game or summin'.
Nah dude. They gotta be quite a bit older so you and them can truly enjoy the fireworks!

OK most of the PC action for SoM is prolly happening on Steam but only 3% is harsh, man. And it explains quite a lot...

They are going to delay this piece of shit indefinitely as long as retards keep buying ships like crazy every sale. Their focus has completely shifted to monetization. A ship sale equates to about +$2 million on the clock so it's less than surprising that they moved the entire ship creation process from Austin to LA (Chris Roberts is in LA for those who don't know).

And big lol @ progress on Squadron 42. So mocap sessions after Xmas and tons of grey and white boxing right now eh? Holy fuck!
I thought Squadron 42 was still at least half on track for a Q4/2014 release or more likely early 2015 but from this report it sounds very much like a Q3/2015 release for the first ten episodes at the very earliest. With the usual delays prolly more like Nov, Dec 2015.
Oh well, I guess that's what happens if they abuse the studio that should be solely focused on Squadron 42 for helping out on the game's monetization aspects.

Game ain't even out yet but just from avidly reading them reports you can congratulate them on being one of the most mismanaged gaming projects in history only topped by Chris Roberts' own Freelancer and anything that the fuckers from Obsidian have ever been working on!

Some of the reviewers were put off by the length, up to 20-25 hrs in some cases to finish the campaign. They probably thought they could finish the game in 8-10 hrs, then had to rush through to get the review finished on time when they realized it was so long.

Nope. The problem seems to be that it's fun to play hide and seek with the fucking Alien for the first five hours. After that it's supposed to turn into a nuisance due to being either way too predictable or the opposite where the Alien pounces you very randomly with lethal precision and no chance to defend yourself if you did not know what was coming.
It seems that the high scores are mostly coming from the reviewers who put in only a few hours and the low scores are coming from the folks who actually bothered to slog through (at least nearly) the entire game.
The complaints about the game being too long are mostly directed at the extremely repetitive gameplay. Playing hide and seek is only fun for that long and 20 hours seemed to be way too long for some folks.

IGN and GameSpot ripped AI a new one with 5.9/10 and 6/10 reviews, respectively. Metacritic average is 82 at the moment.

So... mediocre game is mediocre.

News Comments > Pillars of Eternity Delayed
19. Re: Pillars of Eternity Delayed Oct 3, 2014, 09:38 CJ_Parker
 
I love how these fuckers still haven't sent out a backer announcement via Kickstarter but how backers once again had to learn about this second massive delay via a 3rd party.
Apparently writing a short heads-up and apology, then clicking the left mouse button to release it to backers is too much work as you'd have to actually lift your fingers and shit.
Good thing I've become similarly lazy when it comes to Kickstarter so when these clowns launch their next KS project, I might have very similar symptoms of paralysis. Scratch 'might', replace by 'will'.

Since they can't be bothered to adhere to the basic pillars of communication and trust, they can go and fuck themselves for all eternity (pardon the pun).

Have to agree with Quinn. D:OS and Wasteland 2 may be wonderful games but I can not find anything immersive about games with an isometric perspective. The simplistic point&click gameplay does not lend itself very well to sucking one into the game world. It's more like playing God or a marionette player rather than actually "being there" in that world and doing things.

News Comments > Star Citizen's $55M Sets Crowdfunding Record
41. Re: Star Citizen's $55M Sets Crowdfunding Record Oct 2, 2014, 03:22 CJ_Parker
 
I am (or used to be) a backer in the $1K+ region (I have auctioned off some of my LTI ships and packages for a nice profit since so I'm no longer in that high) but I'm very disappointed how this "game" has turned into a money making scheme. Everything is focused on monetization now.

Just look at this very 'Letter of the Chairman' accompanying the $55 million announcement where he's asking which wave of ships people would like to see next.
It is very clear that the sole purpose of this is to have more and more ship sales so the focus of the art team and animation will be very heavily on ships and only partially on other much needed persistent universe or Squadron 42 assets that keep being pushed on the backburner in favor of ships.

Of course the persistent universe and Squadron 42 also need their fair share of ships but look at the extremely specialist and redundant roles of the proposed ships. This is made up stuff just to make a buck or, well, two million bucks since that is the approximate ballpark figure for every ship sale.

It's useless complaining about this though. As long as there are suckers and morons out there buying every ship they can get their grubby little hands on, CIG will keep pumping them out and they will keep delaying Squadron 42 and the PU in favor of monetization while always dangling the carrot on a stick made up of what is "coming soon".

My interest in this game is near zero now. The PU is d00med IMHO. They are never going to be able to balance all of these ships and ship classes and roles against each other. There is a reason why games like WoW are successful and only have eight(right?) classes and why a game like Star Wars Galaxies with 32 professions failed badly.
You can not keep your gamers happy if you can not deliver fixes, improvements, nerfs in a timely fashion. And with the sheer number of ships in SC it is going to be mission impossible for the devs to keep even a fraction of ship owners happy and entertained and so they feel like their ship is getting some TLC.
Also, many of the game's mechanics still sound really lame and stupid like the PvP slider where a slider setting in the menu determines your chance to get into PvP encounters or ship rentals or the half-baked permadeath system and much, much, much more which makes it sound like this game is going to be way too realistic to be fun with tons of chores, fees, taxes and bills to pay etc. etc. etc.

Too bad. This could have been good but then Roberts got greedy...

Y'all are way too impatient. This fucker has a season pass and DLC coming out its ass. It's one of those sliced up games that makes a Sicilian salami sausage pale in comparison. I, for one, will be waiting for the full game and out of spite for the retarded DLC policy not be paying full price either. More than enuff other good stuff out there. I can wait for the complete edition to go on sale next year. Fuck this rip-off shit.

Yeah it's lame that no nekkid pics of the real famous chixx have leaked yet!
Though maybe the high profile broads have just silently paid the ransom fees that the haXX0rs are claimed to have demanded?
I mean let's say the haXX0rs asked Kidman or Hayek to give them $100K for not publishing any pics then that's pocket change for these chixx.

And the haXX0rs prolly didn't even care for men's pics. Can't get that much ransom money out of a dude because the public interest is just much lower.
It's kind of proof though that there were criminal intentions behind this. If these guys haXX0red iCloud just for the lulz they would have just released all pics of men and women, celeb or not, alike indeed, but looking at how everything is leaked in stages, it really seems like the blackmail rumors are true, and what we are getting to see here is the chixx who chose not to pay a dime.

News Comments > Visceral: Battlefield Hardline "Will Work"
29. Re: Visceral: Battlefield Hardline Sep 29, 2014, 17:38 CJ_Parker
 
Not really interested in this game at all. I'll be waiting for one of those Origin Free Game Time features where you can test the game for free for 24 or 48 hours and then we'll see... but unless it is radically fun and different from the mold I don't see myself buying this ever. Given the rather short dev cycle it sounds and looks more like just a reskinned BF4 anyway so no thanks to that.

I'm really worried about this "progress" in the industry and this goddamn VRAM console shite. If the devs don't bother to optimize for the PC, well.. I simply can't really afford a 6GB GPU or SLI 3GB

Dude, SLI does not double VRAM. Two cards in SLI can still only access 3GB VRAM if you put two 3GB VRAM cards in SLI. That's why when you have a choice between e.g. a 2GB and a 4GB model and you want to SLI you should definitely always go for the 4GB model because VRAM is still in short supply in SLI.

6GB VRAM eh? Good. Another excellent reason to wait until this and all DLC hits the Steam sale bargain bin.

This is my #1 most wanted game and the one I am looking forward to the most by a far margin but given CDP's track record I also won't preorder.
Unless it's getting catastrophic reviews for some reason, I'll be getting the inevitable fully patched enhanced edition once that becomes available but I won't ever be paying for a beta Witcher again.
