Apparently the reward for the first wing is being considered one of the best legendaries in the game right now, so there's that.

If you burn through them on normal, the Heroic versions are incredible challenging. It took me two weeks to get through Goethe in Nax.

Actually it had split screen on PS3 so this was actually a downgrade if you can believe it.

Hey 100,000 is a lot of money. The tech demo looked like a knock off mobile game.

Anyway I think they have a good attitude. They know why it didn't work and they'll try better next time.

Arcades were fantastic in the pre-1995 era. Sadly not as useful anymore due to not delivering enough value per dollar as consoles became better.

Kind of like movie theaters vs. your home theater set up.

I don't know, I actually still enjoy the theater and chicks love going out to the show so

I love my setup at home but it doesn't beat seeing something at the IMAX or just going out with another couple to shake up the routine.

Even though you go out to the show to be quiet and watch something it still feels like a social experience for some reason, usually because there is other activities that accompany it like dinner and drinks. Whereas with arcades I was always so engrossed in the games I rarely did anything else.

Not to mention the total darkness, lack of neighbors to piss off, and the lack of interruptions. At home you wouldn't think anything of taking a piss or getting up to check something but in a theatre you stay riveted.

I think arcades actually had the reverse issue- the atmosphere was always kind of grimy, like a casino. It doesn't help that the cabinets were generally stuffed into alcoves. The most popular arcades I've seen in recent years were plugged into the fighting game scene, people were there for that atmosphere.

Ah that's too bad pretty cool card back.

If you follow that link and look on the right they have a couple previews for about 6 cards from the set, which is neat.

Just started playing this, addictive game, if not frustrating when you're going F2P.

I kind of eased into it by not playing pvp very much, instead trying to get all the free gold you can out of doing the PvE stuff. I wouldn't bother with ranked til you bulk up the collection a bit, although getting to rank 20 isn't hard if you really want the card back.

Here's the most helpful thing I would guess - You can swap one quest a day. So you can get rid of the ones that require wins or at least line them all up on one class and do them at once.

Regardless of Kojima's quality (I always like the quirk), this sudden brand managment by Konami seems really petty in the wake of what is obviously some kind of spat. This reminds me of all the rooster crowing when Infinity Ward broke up.

I don't like to be a hater of this because I like asymmetrical multiplayer games. But the population chart speaks volumes. It's a line straight down since launch. Because the game is not fun enough to go back to.

Thanks for the link. I think your conclusion is only partially correct. Speaking of another game that is well liked on this board, Dying Light has the exact same player curve. The qualifier is that Dying Light does have a big offline component. Still, the amount of people playing it from release on Steams database over time is almost exactly the same as Evolve. The only difference is Dying Light had about twice as many at its peak and still has about twice as many now.

Frozen Cortex has a daily peak of about 25 players. Obviously you can't compare Cortex to Evolve, but I actually found it was surprisingly hard to find any comparison. Origin has snapped up all of the big AAA multishooters. Dark Souls 2 has a long tail but it also started out with nearly four times as many players last March. Comparisons to DOTA/CS:GO/TF2 are obviously specious.

Konami has been limping along on their old glory for so long now it might be time to stumble into the snow and die.

They've only published about 4 new games over the last couple years, compared to dozens per year during the ps2 era.

It would be a shame if this killed Silent Hills though so hopefully its just so rumor mongering in advance of some salary negotiations.

In GTA 5 my phone freezes now, whenever I try to check me email. Come on Rockstar, that's just too much like real life.

I think one of the ways they measure the birthrate is to sample how many Steam/PSN/Xbox accounts don't have Burnout Paradise yet.

Seems like game development in the industry at large is incredibly toxic, maybe older people are too smart to be involved?

News Comments > Terraria: Otherworld Tower Defense Elements Revealed
13. Re: Terraria: Otherworld Tower Defense Elements Revealed Mar 11, 2015, 21:05 Cyanotetyphas
 
The trailer confirmed my suspicion that they're kind of taking a kitchen sink approach. Still, looks like there are some more varied objectives than make this kill that so Otherworld seems like a positive.

I enjoyed the first one a great deal it takes a really long time before you can start building cool stuff. There probably should have been some midgame switches or something with an objective to teach you how to use it. Figuring out the wiring is obtuse as hell, though I eventually did get the teleporters set up and the fire blasting front gates to protect me from birds and low level slimes.

Wo they want a lot of cashola for what they've got to show so far. Never played any of the old games though so I guess I'm not the target audience.

F2P goes a long way in the genre here too.

I loved Magic in high school but I probably spent hundreds on it over the years.

I know this mobile shit makes a lot of money, but so do homeopathic medicine companies.

Even using the best Skinner psychology money can buy, the fad will pass one day.
