News Comments > New Quake Live Ruleset Courts New Players
27. Re: New Quake Live Ruleset Courts New Players Aug 28, 2014, 16:51 Xenovore
 
Maybe they should rename it while they are at it, 'cause it's not much like the original Quake Live any more (let alone the original Quake 3: Arena).

"Quake Lite"?
"Quake for Dummies"?
"Happy Fun Quake"?
"Care Bear Quake"?

Exactly. This is just a money-grab. ANd the description doesn't even fit with the lore of Tolkien's Middle-Earth; a Ranger with wraith abilities because he's possessed by some spirit? Total bullshit.

News Comments > Daikatana on Steam

That was the problem. If you want people to get stoked about your game, you lead out with something awesome; show something that will suck players in. Frogs and mosquitos ain't it.

I played the demo for like 5 minutes (if that), said "meh", and went back to Half-Life or whatever I was playing at the time that was actually fun.

News Comments > Diablo III Auction Houses Shutting Down Next Year
39. Re: Diablo III Auction Houses Shutting Down Next Year Sep 17, 2013, 17:59 Xenovore
 
To be a "correct" Diablo successor, it should have fully procedural dungeon/zone generation, just like Diablo 2 and Diablo 1. As it currently is with Diablo 3, it's "been-there-done-that-seen-it-all already"; I'm rather bored with the game at this point. True procedural generation would have kept it fresher, longer.

So yeah, all this stuff -- these announcements of "Loot 2.0", "no RMAH", "Reaper of Souls DLC", etc. -- it's too-little-too-late; zero incentive for me to return to Diablo 3. Hell, I'd rather go back and play Diablo 1 at this point.

I expect like Simcity. This just further strengthens my resolve to never buy an EA game again.

I doubt it gets better. Crysis 1 was designed as a PC game, first and foremost. The others are designed as console games, with all the limitations that you're gonna get with 8 year old tech; e.g. levels are small and linear because there isn't enough memory for decent-sized levels.

Steam has been a god send for indies. Their upfront seems a little high, but getting your game on the front page gets it in front of millions of people.

Assuming your game meets the arbitrary standards that Valve sets for Steam.

It's actually fairly difficult to get an indie game on Steam; you must have just the right combination of innovation, aesthetics, game-play, and planetary alignment or it's a no-go. (And they won't even tell you why your game was turned down.)

I've been looking forward to Rage for a long time now, but I guarantee if id Software jumps on the online-connection-required bandwagon, I will not be purchasing Rage. (Just as I am not purchasing Diablo 3, or any other single-player games requiring an online connection.)

In my experience "always connected" is more like "mostly connected"; inevitably, it's exactly at the moment that I want to play a game that my internet connection craps out. And there are still millions of square miles on this planet where it pretty much impossible to get an internet connection, but people still want to play games in those locations. (This is a issue particularly here in the western US.)

Once again EA reaffirms why I will not buy their junk. EA and Ubi can go burn in hell together.

Gamespy is about as relevant these days as a Model T. And after experiencing Gamespy's quality (read: lameness) first-hand in Borderlands -- Gamespy just needs to go straight to hell and not come back. Ever.

Heh! Exactly what I was thinking! It will look great, but the game-play will be incredibly dull... Sleeping

No LAN play or dedicated servers? Why the hell did they even bother putting multi-player in there at all?!! Huh

Either do it right, or just forget about it completely.

WTF were they thinking?!

Gearbox just lost a sale... and every last shred of respect I might have had for them.
