News Comments > Mortal Kombat X Trailer; Goro Preorder Bonus
8. Re: Mortal Kombat X Trailer; Goro Preorder Bonus Jan 15, 2015, 02:53 Rossafur
I think I read they said it's going to play more like Injustice did, which I'm hopeful for, because I can manage to accidentally do special moves while button mashing (manic button-mashing my way through fighting games since Street Fighter!) and then learn them through osmosis in that game. Then I tried the last Mortal Kombat immediately after it, and I most certainly had no such luck, and after briefly looking at the menu to try and figure out some of the special moves, threw down my controller and declared: "Ain't nobody got time for that!" and haven't loaded it up since.

I remember back when people installed freakin' glow-in-the-dark skins in CS (and ridiculously easy to see models before that)...
Seems it's pretty pervasive in competitive games all the way up to the top to do pretty shady things like turning their graphic settings all the way down to max their FPS for reaction time -and to make everything pop out more...
Some games you can even completely turn off display settings for things that provide concealment like grass, and it's been pretty well-known there are people that have always maxed out their gamma to see in dark areas better, in MechWarrior Online people do it on night maps to be able to still snipe across the map with night vision on...
People who would put a piece of tape in the center of their monitor with a reticle on it so they can shoot from the hip...
All those things remove the "fun" from games for me, but enough people do it and then they say "Well you have to in order to be competitive, all the best players do it!"
It goes on and on, and that's why e-sports are kinda ridiculous outside of a completely controlled setting where you can guarantee everyone has the same setup.

Eh... so no Total War: Warhammer Fantasy... next, at least?
I'm pretty sure they only have the WH Fantasy license, not the 40k one, right?

To be fair it would be pretty impossible to make a sequel that had even half the features and content that were in the previous titles. And it would only get harder each time. Thats an enormous back catalog to port.

Oh I agree with you, but there have been quite a few things added via packs that have felt less like extra content and more like quintessential features that should have already been there. And then if they're not in the next base game... it feels very pre-planned to be added again later via extra fees.
Even with the fluff, though, with Sims 4 looking incredibly visually similar to 3, it's hard to imagine it could be all that hard to implement old assets and do just a little updating to them.

Wonder how many packs it will take for it to feel like an actually complete game this time around. Gotta love the model where each sequel brings you back to feeling completely stripped-down again... Will something as basic as pets even make it into the base game this time? Jobs that aren't just sending your sim to a building for 8 hours with nothing to see?

No idea who Azalea is... I haven't been particularly familiar with any of the songs Weird Al's spoofing this time around, actually. Would blame it on officially getting old, but he could be my dad...

I never got into PI and I have a fundamental problem with mining, but every time I see a new update, I want to start up my sub again. I have a very old account that doesnt have nearly the skills that people think it should. When I look for a corp, they see my start date and start salivating, then I tell them my skills and they wander off disappointed.

Im not sure what I actually like about the game, the scope I guess, because after I resub, Im left wondering why I did and what I think im actually going to do.

I sometimes think i should go pirate and see how that suits me, but Im not evil...

You took the words right out of my mouth. I'm totally attracted to the romance of this kinda game including those similar like the X series, Evochron, etc. But after about an hour or two into them, Ithink WTF? Perhaps it speaks to my personal lack of ambition more than anything. Of course, if I had more ambition I wouldn't have time for games like this anyway.

Lol, exactly my thoughts as well to both of you. Whenever I re-sub I'm lucky to make it a week of still logging in to do anything other than queuing skills to train, ha. And the ambition part... oooh, sooo spot on. Going back to my entry-level summer seasonal job for the 4th time next week, 5 years post-college, 30 years of age now...

I'm guessing they held off completely on saying anything about this for so long for competitive reasons, though I'm not entirely sure what they are, seeing as how it seems to be "You know everything that DayZ has attempted to implement or is saying they're attempting to implement? Yeah, we're actually going to have all that actually working, and implemented from the start. And then some. Because we're SOE, and we have the know-how, and more importantly: the wallet, to do it. B**ch."

Which... they are? So it's successful for them? Not sure where else success in business matters... (and Bohemia has a long track record of releasing unpolished games and never truly straightening them out, but this is the first time they've made mega-bucks off of one)

This game has outlived its time. If it had come out a year ago, it could have been highly successful. But at this point, the development-hell has created a situation that will render it irrelevant by the time it finally comes out...

Guess they'll be laughing all the way to the bank about how they managed to make a fortune before releasing an irrelevant game in its finished form. Success is measured in dollars and cents.

I sure hope the more... *interesting* things start making their way in soon. I mean, I'm sure people buying a zombie apocalypse game are all just RAVING about wanting an in-depth cooking system, but maybe being able to support more than a handful of zombies, and have them serve as more than an annoyance should take more precedence in your zombie game?
I haven't even logged into the game in months, after I got fully kitted out and then there was a patch where it sounded like there were tons of people getting reset, and now according to Frankie it's apparently being overrun with hackers...

Remember back when community-made maps (and mods) ended up surpassing official maps in popularity, and it didn't split up the community because anyone could download them, for free? Blue's News remembers! *wanders off to go wax nostalgic about Lithium II and Loki's Minions CTF for Quake 2 and all the maps I made for Quake 1* Wonder if I can still find those and bots that play them...

14. Re: Diablo III Double XP Weekend Mar 21, 2014, 23:02 Rossafur
I can't help but think whenever a game has a bonus XP event or sells XP boosts it means that they're basically admitting the game's default leveling/reward system is really just a grind designed by I/O psychologists to keep you clicking away ad nauseam like a chicken pecking away at a lever to receive feed in a lab experiment... (the bonus XP events show how beneficent the master is, while the RMT XP boosts offer you an enticing way to escape the drudgery of vanilla leveling)

There's no mechanic for selling anything in FB (though I seem to remember years ago there being a sort of classifieds section that would pop up), as far as I know it was just people putting things up for sale in comments and then doing transactions on their own from there. This was really just a result of the anti-gun zealot groups pushing to ban any sort of firearms-related pages at all on FB.

4. Re: Saturday Previews Mar 1, 2014, 21:51 Rossafur
I've heard that people have gotten their gear back when that happens by exiting the game and then re-entering it, or that sometimes it's due to joining a private hive server rather than a normal public one.

However, I could hardly care less about a cooking mechanic in the game... I barely cook in RL. I want smoother gameplay all-around, many MORE and better zombies (including zombies in buildings), and maybe even "herds" that travel from town to town so people don't just stick to the same places, which would maybe give more incentive to do things other than just PVP once you're geared up. However, just smoother gameplay seems like a big enough hurdle with this engine at this point...

Sorry, your analogy still makes no sense. It seems you're reeeally grasping for a social world parallel as a way to show us all how cool you *really* are.
I wasn't defending the game, I was mocking you for buying a game that you had every possible opportunity to be forewarned as to the condition of the game, and then demanding a refund due to the condition of the game.
The mental acrobatics you must be doing to convince yourself of your logical superiority are truly astounding.

A) You're a coward because you're afraid to ask for what you want.

B) You're the idiot because you understand that even as early access people have a reasonable expectation that the game will perform more or less how its intended to. Do you even know the difference between an alpha and a beta? No obviously you don't or you wouldn't have opened your big mouth in the first place. Better to keep your mouth shut and suspected the fool then to open it and remove all doubt. Thanks for removing that doubt for us. You see what happens, Larry?

Wow, I must be hitting the big times to have one of the most prolific complainers on Bluesnews take the time to make personal attacks against me too!

A. "Buyer beware" couldn't possibly apply any better than to this game at this point (especially for someone who's apparently such an avid PC gamer), so I'm still not seeing how me pointing that out makes me a "coward" who only goes for ugly girls...
B. Are you sure you're not the confused one? The DayZ SA is in ALPHA, not beta.
*Beta* follows alpha and is when you can expect it to be mostly complete, aside from bug and balance fixes. Awesome job pairing a tired saying with a tired line from The Big Lebowski, though. Bravo.
