News Comments > Daikatana on Steam
27. Re: Daikatana on Steam Oct 2, 2013, 15:15 ockky
 
Had this game been released with the second generation of shooters, it would have been deemed pretty decent. The fact that it showed up during the 3rd generation of shooters, after the likes of Half-Life, System Shock 2, and Unreal made this game a real stinker.

HL had a better story and gameplay.
SS2 had WAY better RPG elements and a better story.
Unreal had WAY better AI, gameplay, and even it's story was better.

All of these games were released at least a year before Daikatana, and the hype that all of these had prior to their releases could not have added up to nearly a quarter of the hype Romero way pumping.

The extreme amount of hype for this game, combined with the previous generation's gameplay/AI is what crushed this game

I dont really understand the dislike of g+. Personally, i like it alot. I really enjoy browsing the 'whats hot' list, and then hopping over and checking out what's happening in my town. my friend's list is relatively quiet which is fine as i dont really use it to keep up with my friends anyways. To me, i think of it as a nice blend of twitter and facebook...it's good stuff... at least in my town.

Other than the launch day woahs, which were disappointing...my bud and i haven't experienced any problems at all...other than me warping twice over the coarse of 7hrs worth of play, and the auction house loading slow as balls...can't say i've had any issues/complaints.

Dwarven Rogue
Halfling Fighter
Elven Cleric

News Comments > Sound Core3D Announced

I'm probably the only one here that will admit to this...and i'm gonna have to force myself not to look back at this thread due to the responses i'm sure to get, but i'm curious to see what the reviews on this will be. yah, i've had my issues with the audigy line of cards over the years, but those 1st soundcards (soundblasters ftw!) i got clearly made an impression (10+ years ago) ...

... but then again, i was running my sound thru some pretty beefy sound systems which i'm sure helped me hear the difference between the old school crappy integrated sound cards and creative's stuff.

that said, the old 'crappy integrated' sound cards aren't quite so old and crappy anymore...not to mention, cpus can easily handle the xtra processing these days

that is all.

lol i didn't read your book of a post so i did miss the quote and thanks for pointing out the sarcasm...i totally would have missed that

and

mage != wizard != sorcerer != warlock != elephants

and they used a word that was used from THE movie...why do you care about this so much?! its' a friggin word, get over it. by your logic, they shouldn't use the term 'knight' when describing jedi

JoeNapalm wrote on Dec 3, 2010, 16:25:

The whole point of my original statement is - if they're calling this class a "Wizard" in-house, then that alone tells you quite a lot as to where their though process is...which is, clearly, Fighter/Rogue/Wizard/Priest.

I, for one, am not interested in "Star WoW".

Clearly you've not played WoW, otherwise you'd know that there is no 'wizard' class,

also, if you want to use quotes on me, how about you use the quote that goes something along the lines of describing 'ol ben' as a 'crazy old wizard' ...

finally, this is clearly the nerdiest fucking thread i've ever decided to pipe-in on lol

Yeah, I'm fairly alarmed that they would ever have called a class "Jedi Wizard"...I mean, that offers some insight into their frame of mind - and it's not good.

... because it's not easier to give something an 'in-house' name to use as a reference while developing something and worry about naming it later?!

it's awesome reading threads about this game about how much it is going to suck, and how it's gonna be stupid, and how george lucas ruined your life, blah blah blah...if you have a problem with a game/ip, just dont play it and move the fuck on jeez

i would love to see how many pc players bought that last pack...my guess is not many

it's such ashame this game got pushed out too early. too many bugs/balancing issues, early in the life of the game killed the community. the only way i can imagine to get this game pumping again is to make the dlc free AND to continue putting it on sale off/on over the course of a few months.

g'luck with that sega/rebellion...i know you are reading my comment

Ecthelion wrote on Jun 11, 2010, 22:17:
I'll be 30 next month (don't know where that fits in with "getting older"), and personally I can't get enough of the franchise. I agree that a lot of it is geared towards marketability, but I don't care. Original Trilogy, Prequel Trilogy, Clone Wars, comics, games, it's all good. I haven't gotten into the novels that much, but I like a few of them.

I'll always like the Original Trilogy the best, but I love any and all Star Wars really. ESB will always be my favorite, but I like all 6 movies a lot (and even the Clone Wars film). I have never understood (and probably never will) why people dislike RotJ. People are taking the series way too seriously if they let the Ewoks ruin the whole movie for them. I mean we get the coolest space battle of all six movies, one of the best lightsaber battles, major characters dying, Luke finally becoming a badass, and an end to the story. What's not to like?

I guess I'm easy to please compared to the "OT rules, everything else sucks" fans, but I'm glad I can enjoy it all to different degrees. I hope I never outgrow my child-like sense of glee for Star Wars, even if it means getting looked down on by more jaded fans.

Bring on the live-action pre-ANH TV series!

That said, I'm not very interested in SW:TOR. I hate MMOs, and I think gaming is going in an almost opposite direction to what I want. This game has some potential to break through some of the inherent shortcomings of the genre (namely storytelling ability), but I'm still very skeptical. Still, I'll at least give it a try.

i completely agree with every single thing you said. I'm 32 and i fucking love me some star wars. all of it (even the, at times god-awful, books). and i'm even willing to put RotS right there next to ANH and ESB in greatness. there is just something about watching the movies that makes me feel so much like a kid again.

however, will say that i am totally psyched about this game, and i plan to play the god-damnit out of it when it comes out.

EDIT: i can't argue with the TvX suggestion either. those were some terrific games

<zeph>This is a cartoon game for children. I'm rich and beautiful. Spending money on this game is dumber than spending it on crack. I like to eat expensive meat on the BBQ. This isn't news. Post more info on games that have you eating ribeye.<\zeph>

I've been coming to bluesnews for years, and this is clearly the greatest single comment ever!
