Uhh Cj, you do realize DX12 works only on Windows10? You can't really call yourself anti-Microsoft and have that OS installed on your PC. Not with a straight face anyway...

I'm hopeful about Space Hulk: Spacewing....

You mean Space Hulk: Deathwing? There has been no news on that for ages now, I fear it may be in serious trouble....

I picked this one up due to praise here but it never worked for me. Enemies weren't fun, weapon system wasn't fun, levels were very narrow corridors. It was just bland for me.

Was just about to comment that apart from the katana (which is apparently new) the weapons look like ass, and most of the enemies don't really look that interesting either. No wonder I never picked this up, despite the interesting premise...

Well as long as her make up stays perfect, her shapely tits stay perky, and her perfect ass is center stage in every single action scene or sequence, who gives a shit about character development?

Just telling it like it is, and there is nothing wrong with that.

Well color me interested. A Warhammer 40K MMO being anything other than a shooter would be kind of weird.

Still wonder what the fuck is going on with the Space Hulk FPS game....haven't heard shit about it, I fear it may have been cancelled.

I wouldn't go so far to say that all gamers are stupid and easily exploitable, but nevertheless there is a lot of truth in that statement.

I'd never play an MMO with permadeath. Too many fuckwads out there who's only goal is to kill me (even if I only PVE). Unless getting to max level and decent equipment is fairly easy, such as with D3.

Yes getting decent equipment and leveling should be fairly easy, but not a complete cakewalk. Additionally guild houses, or banks could provide some sort of storage facility where you can unload and store some more valuable goods and money which you could use potentially with another character.

Where is the talking brain dude and his "death star" subterranean super base drill? The banter between that guy and Shredder were some of the best parts of the cartoons when I was a kid. That and Rocksteady and Beepbop of course.

Blue, please don't get any crazy idea's with the Infinite Spherical Video Magic when they decide to do pictures/videos of your work environment.

Blade Runner squeal? Please keep George Lucas and JJ Abhrams away from it please (like 3 continents away).

A sequel to Blade Runner is so unnecessary. But if they really have to do it, at least they should have a better screenplay than The Force Awakens or Prometheus.

Although the Martian was a pretty decent adaptation and a solid film, and probably the best he's done since the Gladiator, I've kind of lost all faith in Ridley Scott to deliver another solid SF film all on his own. The Blade Runner sequel reeks of a cash grab, although I can't make up my mind whether Ridley Scott producing instead of directing is good or bad in this case.

The ironic thing is that MMOs existed which had the perfect formula, both as actual MMOs and earlier as MUDs, or Multi User Dungeons. Yes this was back in the 90s...again. Some of you younger folks may not remember them, but they were glorious. The gameplay and leveling system was fun and unparalleled, however a person was responsible for his own avatar, and death was usually permanent for each character you created. This is how you create an exciting and "meaningful" world.

Perma-death in combination with exciting gameplay mechanics. Some noob areas where people can be relatively safe. Not too high level caps so that people can actually reach the "end game" before inevetabely dying. Meaningful rewards for high level players for helping out with questing with low level players, essentially teaching them the game on the way and helping to keep them alive. Huge rewards for your faction for risking your neck in raids or PvP so that people don't end up care bearing all day long in towns.

Basically you take today's "new" (what a joke) survival games, and mix em up with some Ultima Online, or LOTR Mud, or WOT MUD or similar...

This is the kind of MMO that I would go back to. Publishers have such an aversion to creating anything that isn't accessible or "easy" (read dumbed as fuck down) so fat chance of that ever happening. Well there are always indies, so maybe we should watch that space...

Did they add some PvP to the game? Are the games still limited to 4 players? I doubt that they removed the BOA on Legendaries and that they improved upon the skill trees enough to make a lot of viable builds. These last two points would be enough to make me have another look at Diablo3 today. Seasonal play is also only interesting if there is a point to it, did they add seasonal leader rankings to the game that are clear and precise?

24 hours seems like a lot of time to spend playing one of the worst games he's ever played.

Sometimes you just want to give a game a chance before making your mind up. 24 hours isn't much when it's easy to put 100 or 200 hours into an RPG.

True, some games require more time before you can pass proper judgment. But anything more than 10 hours seems dubious, even for an RPG. You don't have to play Raven's Cry or Two Worlds or Gothic 3 for 20+ hours to realize they suck. If a game is objectively terrible, you'll realize it within an hour. If a game just isn't your cup of tea, you'll realize it within 10 hours. Cutter claimed that Dragon's Dogma is one of the worst games he's ever played and if that were true, he wouldn't have needed 20+ hours of gameplay to realize it.

My guess is that Dragon's Dogma just isn't Cutter's cup of tea. That's fine but hyperbolic criticism isn't really necessary if that's the case.

You make good points, and Cutter has not provided a single argument for why he feels the way he does. In my case (With D3) I wanted to give the game the chance it deserved, since I was such a huge Diablo1&2 fan, and because I had some hopes that many shortcomings would be improved upon. Also an important point is that many of my RL friends were playing it and lastly the "skinner box" gameplay was addictive up to a point, the point being when you realize that there really is no point to continue playing. No persistent builds, BOA items, low level cap, no meaningful PVP, etc. etc.

This is by no means a criticism of Dragon's Dogma, all Im saying is that with some games its hard to figure out whether they live up to their potential and promise, sometimes you have to keep playing for quite a while to figure that out, especially if the base gameplay is pretty solid, you want to see the "end game", and you have hopes that things will be changed for the better after release. Some people will say "You got your money's worth, that proves the game is solid". I'm more inclined to say that not only did I waste my money on the game, I also wasted a whole lot of time.

I put in at least 50-60 hours into Diablo3 (and about 30-40 into the expansion) before deciding it was a piece of shit that doesn't deserve to be on my PC anymore and that the time I spent playing was wasted.

I have to say most of that was spent playing Hardcore characters, which is where the game is supposed to shine the brightest yet falls flat on its face in so many ways.

I cannot stress how much Diablo3 fucking sucks, it just takes a while to get to that point because you are impressed with the Blizzard polish and because you want to give it all the chances it can get.

I liked what I saw here, Blizzards take on Team Fortress. At least I did from the promo and gameplay videos. Didn't get into the beta, but hey ce la vie. Problem is Im not going to pay Blizzard 60$ (plus however much the DLC+ expansions end up costing) for a multiplayer only game. They can go fuck themselves with that shit, this has free to play written all over it. Even back when TF2 was released as part of the Orange Box, you got HL1, HL2 and TF2 in one DVD case, for the price of one game. Ok rant over, Ill probably die of old age before this comes out anyway...

It's $40.
I forget if you're estadounidense

Nope. EU, so 40 euros here. Still kind of steep for a multiplayer only FPS if you ask me, but I guess it's better than 60 Euros..
