News Comments > Wasteland 2 Intro Movie
5. Re: Wasteland 2 Intro Movie May 25, 2014, 14:31 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
On the one hand, I'm looking forward to Wasteland 2, probably a day one purchase for me (I have reached my KS limit, so didn't back it).

On the other hand, can we PLEASE get a post apocalyptic world setting where NOBODY is wearing old football pads? Seriously, those offer zero protection from actual weapons.

News Comments > Diablo III Legendary Anniversary Buff Becomes Permanent
9. Re: Diablo III Legendary Anniversary Buff Becomes Permanent May 22, 2014, 11:26 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
Now, Blizzard just needs to remove Rift Keys from the game entirely, and buff drop rates in Adventure mode(bounties, bosses, etc.) to be the same as Rifts.

Then people could actually play the areas of the game they want to play, instead of farming Bounties to farm Rifts for actual drops.

It'd be nice for them to make solo play as rewarding, Magic Find-wise, as group play, but that logical leap seems to be completely beyond them.

Hrm, looking at the screenshots, this looks like the same game(basically) and same engine(mostly?) that I've played several times already.

No major improvements this time around, 1C Company? I'll pass.

Holy shit... stop buying Day Z, random people who are somehow not yet sick of unfinished zombie survival games.

That said, has anybody bought Space Engineers? How is it? (Besides being yet another unfinished game)

Fairly interesting bits of information on that graphic. It shows how indie Tripwire really was 5 years ago... I hope Killing Floor 2 is far, far better, since they have probably 50 times the funds/expertise this time around.

Ooh, nice. Patch 2.05 has been very good so far. They really need to bump up Rift fragments and Legendary drops in Adventure mode(non-Rift) though, in my horrible drop-luck biased opinion.

ps. Yes I am one of those people who plays Diablo 3.

Yay can we move on to the next overhyped excessively developed game now? Anyone have any guesses on what it will be or where it will come from?

Without question, it will be: The Division.

Both that game and Watch Dogs may end up being good, but prepare yourself for the media/hype storm that The Division will bring, damn.

News Comments > Kerberos' Kaiju A Gogo Teaser
2. Re: Kerberos' Kaiju A Gogo Teaser May 12, 2014, 13:54 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
That sounds like a really good idea for a game, jdreyer. They would have to make it so the Kaiju didn't all come from ONE hole at one spot in the ocean though... just surround that with warships, depth charges, mines etc. on the first day and it's over.

Also, use your sword FIRST, not after the giant monster kicks your ass for like 20 minutes.

Wow, looks impressive graphically at least.

A bit of a sideways topic: Apparently Ripley's ex-husband or boyfriend really lucked out, breaking it off with Ripley before she got involved with certain acid-blooded xenos. Imagine if he had still been in the picture, we would have had several games/movies of him most likely getting maimed or killed on his futile way to rescue Ripley(Sigourney).

So... what is the regular vesion of Homeworld Remastered supposed to cost? I'd be interested in downloading that for about... $4.99?

5. Re: Killing Floor 2 Revealed May 10, 2014, 09:18 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
Well it's about damned time.

It seems like they have WAY more money and experience this time around too, I'm interested to see how exactly KF2 turns out.

Killing Floor had great shooting mechanics but multiplayer usually turned into a camp fest, simply due to map design and the movement speed of non berserkers. Also, competition for kills more than teamwork was usually the method of operation on most pubs, hopefully Tripwire can fix that this time around.

Unless the gameplay videos look like complete shit I'm required to buy this game.

Sigh... I REALLY hope they don't fuck up these new Star Wars films, or Godzilla for that matter.

I assume they are going to go with the classic Godzilla opponents though...they would kind of be forced to. (not counting MechaGodzilla, who will remain on the bench)

Hrm, looks like this has definitely moved to my Steam sale buy list, but Stealth or Mayhem? Mayhem 100%.

Oh my god. What a sick kill! Say what you will about the Battlefield series, but only in BF games do you get that kind of beautiful madness.

Although I've definitely seen better ones than that c4 quad, that was still pretty good.

. However, this game is a worldwide phenomenon and easily the #1 played game on Steam. This game is huge!

That is mind boggling. MOBA games are RTS-lite, ARPG-lite at best, neither of which are particularly skill-gated to entry level play. But whatever floats the popular boats I guess. Stay off my lawn, kids!

Valve will never really make HL3 at this point, I don't think that is a factor. What is a factor is the huge vortex of game companies being sucked into making MOBAs in foolish cash grab attempts, instead of making real games, that'll hurt all of us over time, just like the MMO fad has left its scars all over gaming.

It has already been confirmed publicly that Peter Mayhew is reprising his roll of Chewbacca.

Yeah I saw that... hopefully he is just providing the voice or head movements or something, for a CGI character. The wookies and other aliens in general need to be way more mobile than the original trilogy versions.

I read something related to this; they are making Star Wars: Rebels, should be released sometime this year. CGI cartoon from the people who did the last Clone Wars series, set between Episode III and IV of the films.

If you guys never watched Clone Wars on Netflix... it's awesome, definitely better than the majority of the actual films. I'm prepared to fully nerd out for SW:Rebels.

Also I am required to see the new film trilogy by law, so hopefully it ends up being tolerable.

Community is so fragmented. Without Premium, trying to find a HC Domination match is almost impossible, unless you want to play one map over and over and over and over.

Good job EA.

That's a feature, not a bug. "Just buy Premium and you'll be all set!"

HC Domination? Good luck finding people playing that on any continent. HC in general in BF4 is pretty weak with the hit detection, and Domination isn't that great of a game mode (my opinions obviously). Large Conquest is the point of the Battlefield series, and the best map is by far Golmud Railway.

Hopefully this will make the Naval strike maps more playable, some of them were mildly interesting.

True but I think people are complaining about the implementation. Then again, I may be wrong. Anyways Origin is as good as Uplay IMHO. Better implementation than GFWL but not as well implemented as Steam. Updates take way to long and to my knowledge, no voice chat support a la Steam...

Update bandwidth seems to be about the same for me on all the services, ie. the bottleneck is my horrible Comcast. There is voice chat via Origin, but to be fair it is barely usable, at least it was the last time I tried it, around the release of BF4. If I remember correctly you could only setup voice comm groups prior to the joining the game, or only with your friends or something. Limited and buggy, but it does exist.
