News Comments > BAFTA Winners
22. Re: BAFTA Winners Mar 12, 2014, 23:48 Yakubs
 
Last of Us was a bad game. I progressed through >50% of all the encounters by running like a maniac toward the zone exit at which point all my pursuers would disappear into cutscene limbo, never to return. A classic example of both atrocious game design and also combat/sneaking that was so un-fun that I preferred to skip it entirely.

The "story" was one note dragged out for 8+ hours. They ran out of material after about 2 or 3 hours. The very end where you lie to her is a decent minor twist but at that point anything resembling creativity would have felt incredible.

Only 8 GB of available space... versus, what, 50 GB for Titanfall? An open world game versus a multiplayer shooter? Hmmmm...

Let's look back on the game in a year or more before deigning the patch a success. D3 1.0 was "fun" for a short time too.

Everything you've just said were the things that I most disliked about D2. item combos still exist. cookie cutter builds are not fun. why would you want more than one character of each class? they've taken all the grind and put it towards the collection of phat lewts. all the best parts of D2 streamlined, imo.

This is why we can't have nice things.

News Comments > Dishonored II at E3?
25. Re: Dishonored II at E3? Mar 4, 2014, 08:42 Yakubs
 
Maybe the enemy forces will actually behave like there's a superhero assassin coming after them instead of wandering around like they just want their overtime pay. I especially love the final mission where the boss explicitly knows you're coming for him and he leaves his complex unlocked and guarded by about 10 incompetent foot soldiers.

But then again it made all the kids feel like REAL BADA$$E$ YO so I guess the game was a rousing success.

I backed it but I havent played part 1 yet because I want to play the whole game at once. My understanding, though, is that part 1 is (a) extremely short and (b) extremely easy. If that's the case and part 2 is more of the same then I will never purchase another Tim Schafer product again.

Paid journalists off? That's insanity!

Now, let me get back to organizing that paid trip to our offices for in-person demos and making sure the journalists are sufficiently fueled with potato chips, soda, and one-dollar bills for the evening activities.

You don't need the auction house to ruin the game for you. The game itself did that just fine.

Don't know anything about Orth besides his d-bag twitter comments but this "game" sounds like trash.

Yes, put in offline mode once no one is buying the game anymore. Dipshits.

Given they're supposedly trying something new in terms of the game design, there's simply no point in arguing over a player-count limit because no one here has any earthly clue how it'll play out in reality. It's even possible that 6vs6 is too many people.

Why would I buy a Blizzard product? All the talent left. They didn't even have the balls to fire Jay Wilson. He just got reassigned and kept his paycheck. He's probably corrupting some other game as we speak.

If you want to support a corporation, buy Blizzard products.

Wow that's really disappointing. I'm done with like 80% of the missions... last thing I wanted was for them to dumb down the last missions just as I was getting to them.

If they keep backpedaling and removing all their horrible decisions, I fear there won't be much of the game left.

Fallout 3 isn't a living being and it wasn't even very good. Why are we celebrating it's "birthday?" Oh, right, free press for Bethesda.
