Careful now, if you don't buy the DLC then all those poor developers will have to be fired and their children will get coal lumps for Christmas.

They should have spent $100000000 instead of just $50000000 on Marketing, that would have INSURED the game's success. Oh well, time to fire those poor developers...

You sure enjoy building those strawmen and burning them down, selectively quoting me AND even putting words in my mouth. Your character assasination also seems to be working in your favour. I also see that you have the full support of the board behind your opinion, everyone else in the thread has rushed to agree with you on all counts. Everything is fine and dandy in the gaming world, yessiree, and we here at Blues are tired old fuckers who don't know shit, I mean everyone except you of course.

Any game from BIOWARE in the last 5 years....etc. etc. etc.
All of these games are worth less than the dirt beneath my fingernail...

yeah, i wonder what you said to demonstrate how you suck all the joy out of gaming...

maybe re-read your froth-filled rant, and think hard about why anyone would think that you're full of shit

Froth filled rant? Heh. That's rich coming from you. My opinion on Simcity, Aliens: Collonial Marines, and the utter crap from Bioware after DA:O, somehow sucks the joy out of gaming for you? Wow my super internet powers are much more than I imagined, sorry about that.

I lift my curse from thee! There you go. Now you can saviour all the joys of these titles free from my corruptive influence. Enjoy!

I don't know why the military don't just employ psychopaths. They could control the flights from their cells and get time off their sentence for serving their country.

What makes you think they don't? Most psychopaths, or more acurately sociopaths are NOT in jail. They learn to blend in, they are good at that.

"Nothing is about Quality anymore, everything is about making a Quick Buck"

are you fucking kidding me? it's not about quality anymore? what metrics for quality are you holding dear? Each year at E3 the 13 year old in me blows his nerd-load a little more (quote that out of context, i dare you). Gaming has become so freaking awesome that it's hard to fathom what's happened in my lifetime alone.

How has quality gone down? please tell me, i'm very interested to know. and you can't say that X game doesn't have the game mode i want. that's just dumb.

giant shit reclamation factory? right... that's all the gaming industry is now. Not teeming with amazing games from indie to AAA. i think you've reached your hyperbole limit for this thread.


Oh wow where do I start. Where the FUCK do I start, although now that Ive read your wonderful reply it seems that you are indeed Trolling hard. Still Im willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. SO where do I start, ok lets list a few examples:

1. Call of Duty...Remember 1 and 2? Modern Warfare1? Need I say More?? Ok QED.

2. Diablo2 --> Diablo3. Again, need I say more? The sheer scale of dumbing down that happened here, both in the way the story was told, and the gameplay itself....Need I say more?

3. 90's multiplayer technology compared to 2010s multiplayer techonolgy: Dedicated Servers GONE, Dedicated Gaming Platform APIs GONE, Bnet 2.0 (a joke compared to the previous one), MMOs...pfft, etc. etc.

4. Consolitis, yes consolitis. Every single game is LEAD on console now, which leads to you guessid it MORE Dumbing down....

5. Style over Substance, just look at any multiplayer game released in the last few years. Titanfall, Evolve, Any Call of Duty game, Any Battlefield game....Compare these to their predecessors. In nearly EVERY SINGLE example the predecessors were superior to their successors.

6. Selling Hype. Hype has (per)sold more games than the games themeselves: SimCity (FUCK YEAH), Aliens: Collonial Marines (FUCK YEAH), Any game from BIOWARE in the last 5 years....etc. etc. etc.
All of these games are worth less than the dirt beneath my fingernail...

7. Marketing (related to hype). Look at how much money is spent on marketing instead of on the development of the game itself. Preorders have become indicative of a games success. It's more important to sell the image of the game, then it is the game itself. Quality and player retention have almost become an afterthought, in many cases it's actually a boon to the publisher to milk a product for all its worth and release a sequel (usually an inferior one) so that the cycle can begin anew.

8. The regurgitation of old franchises is happening why exactly? Why is everyone so crazy about Fallout, or Doom, or turn based isometric games, or SpaceSims? Why do you think gamers (especially 30 something gamers) are so fucking jaded on this board and elsewhere that Kickstarter for remakes has become a model of success. Yeah must be because triple AAA games are so FUCKING AWESOME!

I could go on, but this is more for the benefit of others anyway on this thread who actually think before they rant.

You are free to disagree with me on any and all points, and I will concede that every now and again there is an exception to the rule, but that does not make you right and everyone else wrong. AAA Games today are all about making the big bucks, at the expense of longevity and gameplay.

Slick, how old are you? Have you been gaming for long? Played games in the 90s? No? For a minute there I thought you were going to go all Beamer on us with the devil's advocate bullshit he likes to go on with, but now Im not so sure. You genuinely sound baffled when you shout " SHAW ME DA EVAL!!!"

Sure you can't completely blame the corporations and game developers for taking advantage of their consumer base, and catoring to the lowest common denominator, they are after all in the business of making money (and gamers are for the most part gullible assholes), but maybe you should read the EULA of ANY one of your games first for starters and then get back to us.

P.S.

Eulas are just the tip of the iceberg. No one who has been gaming for at least the last 20 years or so can't ignore what is going on in the industry and how it has for the most part turned into a giant shit reclamation factory. Just like pretty much every single industry in the western world that has come before it. Nothing is about Quality anymore, everything is about making a Quick Buck, and I can't see why anyone would think that's not at least a little bit Evil. (It even says so in the Bible!)

This will probably be the first Blizzard game I buy since the launch of WoW in 2004. I'm not super excited for it and I'll probably get bored with it quickly... but it does look like they put a lot of effort into design and gameplay on their TF2 clone they have here. I'm always down for top fragging in some fast paced MP.

Why would you buy a F2P game?

Grokk does have a point about the art style, although the rest of his argument is mostly moot. The Art direction with Blizzard has gone downhill ever since the WOW Cabal has taken over the Roost over at their HQ. Every game released since has suffered as a result.

They made this a sandbox game? How will that work and be fun? 47 is a loner and keeps to himself. He won't go out on dates or go play dart or run around killing everybody in a total rampage GTA style. Will there be cars in the game to drive? Will every target go about his business through the entire city and can you pick your targets off when you see fit? Allot of questions. I can't see this work. I'm afraid it'll try to be too much; too ambitious, and will fail.

Guess we'll see.

I never liked Hitman that much, however even I would be game for a GTA type Hitman.

short answer: dopamine

...and a relatively low IQ.

I have a friend who is obsessive with Clash of Clans. He won't admit to spending more than 100 Euros on the game, but I have a suspicion that it's a whole lot more. He is really a great guy, but not too bright. He was also really pissed off that they *GOT SPOILER AHEAD *Killed off Jon Snow, and that the Starks have it so bad, he is actually pissed of with GRRM which is hilarious.

I tried explaining that the deaths in the show are not just for random shock value, and he was inclined to believe me, up until the last episode.

Sorry for off topic.

I think you meant to say Guild Wars 2: Heart of the Swarm. Or possibly, Guild Wars 2: Heroes of the Storm.

Im sure Blizzard is thrilled with NCSOFT.

Yup. Especially when they are making you pay through your nose for glorified expansion packs. I purchased SC2, ages ago. I gave up waiting for Heart of the Swarm and mostly lost interest in all things related to this belated RTS some time ago. I have no interest in waiting for this, and have moved away from multiplayer RTS games anyway.

Maybe in a few years, I might get nostalgic enough to want to finish the story, and buy everything at a discount but Blizzard moves further and further away from the gritty, into the cartoonish with all of their properties. Their storytelling suffers as a result.

Ok just finished watching the 20 minute Doom video. (Slow day at work, heh). No audio. Does anyone else get the hitching? I hope thats just the youtube video and not the game engine. Thats a huge fucking negative right there, if true.

Anyway, I gotta say it's looking pretty good. Love the visceral feel of the game, much more in line with the original games. The over the top animations and melee takedowns look good. I hope they add more colour palette though, the hell level looked especially drab, and all the demons are basically the same colour. What is it with iD software and shades of brown??? Doom1 and 2 were much more colorful. It's a small gripe though, the multiplayer looks fast paced and finally we might get a true successor in that regard too.

Didnt see enough of the levels to really comment on the size and design, but I really hope they stuff some more demons in there and ocasionally 'overwhelm' the player with sheer numbers.

Also, pentagrams?! In 2016? Fuck me sideways, that was a nice surprise!
