News Comments > The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut Announced

The games are pretty... average IMO. Nothing special, but not bad either.
Being fully campaign co-op is a big plus though.

The third one has terrible loot and character progression, whilst the others are much better they are nothing remarkable.

Good buys when they are on sale, as would be this final cut.

Trailer is epic.

Doubt the gameplay will be anywhere near as good, but hey... willing to give it a try.

Or better put.. HotS is the casuals MOBA

To me it feels like a MOBA for newbies to the genre and casuals. Just as WOW did to the MMO genre - turning it all casual and noob friendly, HOTS is doing to the MOBA genre.

I tried to enjoy the game but it just felt a little lacking in depth and freedom... and the graphics and animations felt really 'clunky'.

At the end of the day, each to the own. Glad you found one you enjoy!

Dota with a new engine sounds great to me. Just wish they'd hurry up add more maps!

For those civ / strategy / co-op fans, age of wonders 3 (and it's expansions) is worth a look and is now 50% off on steam.

Shitty engine, no dev progress, then along comes a better alternative in H1Z1.

What else is there to know?

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.

To me it just feels like a MOBA designed to cater to MOBA newbies - kinda like what WOW did with MMO's.

I can only hope that they aren't ridiculously successful (again) or we will end up with nothing but cookie cutter clones of this shallow gameplay and another ruined genre.

I always thought animations were one of blizzards strong points? Guess not so much anymore.

New drivers for a game that looks like it was made in the late 1990's!!

Screw Nvidia, I'm pulling out my trusty Orchid Righteous for this one

I have no interest in this kind of shallow game (all flash and no depth).

Isn't that what blizzard does best though?

Just look at WOW, their joke of a MOBA, and now this.

Though who knew the FPS genre could get any more dull & shallow?

Such a bland, short, easily forgettable game.

So pretty much the complete opposite to the original game.

Still about 10x better than WOW ever was - even though it was buggy as all hell.

Tortage was overrated. Linear as it gets, and who cares about voice acting really... oh right, PVErs

In multiplayer games losing has consequence, you didn't win.
If you're not first you're last.

*meaningful consequence.
Looking at the end of match scoreboard for 5 seconds before it reset doesn't really count.

Like gambling with fake money vs real. One gets your heart pumping, the other is boring as fk.

Plus with MMO's it changes the entire game, politics actually matter, people have to think before they act, skill meant something - not gear, no more meaningless zerging, or coming back into battle right after death, pve isn't boring as fk because you are always looking over your shoulder etc etc...

These days you get a gold star and a pat on your back for dying.
PVE = gear grind so you can do better in PVP
PVP = point grind in instances for better gear, so you can do ever better at uhh... said PVP grind. Alternatively play musical castles and attack the wall for half an hour.

Fkn Yay! Console gaming at it's best.

The risk versus rewards aspect of MMOs like EQ and Ultima Online is what made them fun. This is also why I play Eve Online (well not actually right now, parked my guy to train for a while since i'm back logged on other games like the witcher).

All these other video games are crazy boring because there's no risk.

This ^.

Even PVE was exciting back in the days, because dying actually had consequences.

And the PVP was fkn amazing. None of this thoughtless red = dead crap, and mindless zerging. Death hurt, meaning tactics and skill mattered, and there were lasting consequences for your and your guilds actions.

Shit was intense.

Now days PVE = grind. PVP = minigame grind. MMO = yawnfest.

Thank you WOW for carebearing/consolising an entire genre.

Darktide forever.
