Apparently while downloading it, my internet peaked in to infinity and then was simply told 'no, get back to your shitty speed!'.

News Comments > Out of the Blue
16. Re: Out of the Blue Jul 15, 2014, 17:22 Wallshadows
 
I'm watching a M*A*S*H episode which has a clock on the lower right-hand corner. Is this suppose to mean something which I may have missed such as doing the whole show in one take or what? It seems like one of the more serious business episodes so maybe it's a countdown till someone dies?

I'm baffled and it's the first time I've ever seen it in spite of following the series closely on History since it came back in to syndication.

Yeah, nothing about it felt "HL2" to me.

I think I've stated here a few times that I hated the first hour or so. But, as I get older, I think I realize I hate the first hour of most games I play. It takes me about that long to get the feel for them. Or, maybe, it takes them that long to get going. Sometimes I stay hating the game, other times (like, recently, this and FC3) I end up loving them.

Just something about it rubbed me the wrong way and, although it may not make sense, gave me the same kind of vibe I experienced while playing Half Life 2. The art is far too familiar to me with all things City 17 and it translated in to a bleh visual experience in Dishonored which may be what sapped my enjoyment of the game since I didn't care much for HL2. I mean, even the Striders get a gentle makeover and are renamed Tallboys.

I'm still confident with saying that the game, to me, looks and feels like a HL2 mod in spite of a more robust combat system and being built on a different engine. Viktor Antonov could have also tried harder than simply recreate City 17 in a Victorian-era but I am likely in the minority on this.

A lot of scuddling is afoot over at Blizzard to reel in some patchwork subscriptions so it'll be interesting to see how much more they've shed since their last quarterly call and overall.

Probably a good game but I grew tired of it in about two hours because it felt and looked way too much like a Half Life 2 mod which pretty much sunk my interest in it.

News Comments > West Games/Areal AMA Doesn't Answer All Questions
20. Re: West Games/Areal AMA Doesn't Answer All Questions Jul 14, 2014, 16:13 Wallshadows
 
It's pretty bad when the person who hosts the AMA is getting their posts buried below viewing threshold.

Has an AMA ever gone so wrong?

As for their remaining KS funds, would it be out of the realm of possibility that that is already their own money pitched in as that seems like a more plausible explanation or is that against the KS rules?

Goat Simulator for five bucks is just such a great deal though! I'll pick up Divinity when it goes back on sale. Not because it's not worth the full price tag but, as Frido would say, I like money and that saved money can be put towards things like tacos Goat Simulator.

Fixed.

I already have it though but I should have waited for the GOTY edition!

1. Re: New AMD Catalyst Beta RC Driver Jul 13, 2014, 12:23 Wallshadows
 
Ever since I installed the driver set which gave performance boost to Wildstar, my monitor has been a real pain in the ass where I would turn on my PC and anywhere from five to 30 minutes would go by before it realized it wasn't in some kind of sleep mode. It's getting feed because it's not showing the no input bubble. Powercycle and keymashing gave no results and it usually boiled down to waiting, rebooting, and more waiting and it's really aggravating. It'll trick me sometimes too where the monitor will come on but in an unsupported resolution so I hit detect and it fucks off for another few minutes.

I went in to the power settings and turned off PCI-E Link or whatever but I don't know if it was off or on prior to this shitstorm to see if it works and I'm not exactly inclined to play Russian roulette by rebooting my system.

So what caused this train wreck to happen in the first place? Just being an 'average' developer that overextended their resources in to shit like Warface?

How do you keep a game like Rainbow Six Siege a secret? Well itís certainly not easy but all we had to do was ask someone questions.

yes people trying to make money to feed their families and be a profitable company is total and complete bullshit! how dare anyone offer some cool stuff to encourage gamers to pre order and get some money into the developers pocket.

Come on bro, I've never been trolled on here before and you're just going to half ass it like that?

Don't be like that.

Dying Light is their ace in the hole and basically what they've always wanted to do and used Dead Island and Riptide as their guinea pig to reach that goal. It is not associated with the DI series.

But yeah, it's all zombies and Dying Light has some kind of parkour system.

When I was first told this by a friend, I thought CA jumped ship and just threw the story aside when you could play as Ripley until I looked in to it myself and thought how cool it is to be on the Nostromo with the old crew.

It's bullshit that it's being used as pre-order bait when it could have damnwell been a scenario or something which could have been unlocked upon completing the main campaign though. The potential greatness of bringing that back, especially after the franchise got shit all over by A:CM, is far outweighed by it being held behind a paywall.

I suspect that after a month they'll just offer it as standard DLC but even that is scummy. How much you want to bet that release day there will be a torrent out which has the 'upgraded' version?

They need 50k to promote it through the Steam Greenlight program to get deeper market penetration for this scam.

I was in heavy denial when playing this game up until I hit 80. I put the thought of horizontal item 'progression' at end game to the back of my mind until it was too late and then I just became adequate like everyone else.
