The consensus seems to be that it's a good game, but it's pretty short, only 5-6 hours.

News Comments > Free Unreal Tournament Plans

I don't understand the negativity. They're going to listen to the community, and the community knows UT3 sucked and 2k4/99 were good. People CAN charge for mods, but there are going to be TONS of people who will make maps/mods for free.

It's PC only. It's not F2P, it's free. Imagine Dota 2. The base game is entirely free, no paywall through microtransactions at all. Except people will make and distribute mods/maps for free. Some will charge, and if their stuff is good enough, they will make some money (and deservedly so).

Epic is going to make their money by taking a cut of the mod/maps that are sold, and also they're creating a huge user base of UE4. By creating such a large user base, they increase the amount of games made with UE4, which they will take a 5% cut of.

For those with such a negative view, can you explain why?

There are going to be maps/modes in the basic game. There will be TONS of free content.

News Comments > Unreal Tournament Reveal Teased for Next Week

UT2k4 is my favorite FPS ever. I won't talk about the disappointment that was UT3, but I hope they strive for everything that made UT2k4 great. I'm tired of modern "realistic" military shooters. I want something fast-paced, no unlocks, where movement is a skill. And I want it to be AAA and popular, so it has a large community to play niche mods with.

I hope 5 is different enough from 3/4 to make it worth the purchase. 4 just felt like an expansion to 3. Both 3/4 are good, but they should try to innovate the IP a bit more.

Gearbox is going to win this. They have so much more money/lawyers it's just going to be settled, in Gearbox' favor.

I am glad to hear Grim Dawn is coming along nicely.. now the only question is should I keep playing my pre-release guy, or just shelve this game until it's fully done? Game Mechanics etc. are still in flux.

And ugh, forgot about the PoE new content. Might have to fire that up again also.

You get to keep all your characters and items on release anyway (unless an update changes skills, you may lose skillpoints). I'm enjoying trying different builds and saving up some rare items to play around with, knowing they're not going away and it's time not "wasted".

Will also be playing the new PoE leagues when they go live March 5th.

News Comments > Craig Scott Leaves CCP for Bigpoint
7. Re: Craig Scott Leaves CCP for Bigpoint Feb 25, 2014, 01:07 Esoteric
 
I think anyone who says free to play games are automatically bad isn't really knowledgeable about games today. Are there bad, cash grab free to play games that are pay to win? Yes, of course. Are there good F2P games that are good games, don't fleece customers, and don't sell power? Yes, there are, and the number is growing.

To say a game is bad JUST because it's "free to play" is just being narrow-minded and ignoring many games as evidence to the contrary.

This isn't to say whatever F2P Bigpoint makes won't be crappy, however.

Great game. I'm also waiting for the new leagues to open. As for the loot being too RNG, that's true to a degree, but there are some really easy to use trade sites that allows you to buy/sell items with minimum hassle (like http://poe.xyz.is/ ). I always avoided them before, but after using them, you can get good gear for your particular build for reasonable prices (a few chaos).

A dev mentioned that they're working on adding Spotify support (and other things like it) to the overlay.

I was a little late to the party with this game, only starting it a few months ago, but it's really great. Playing on a server running like 175 mods...sooo much stuff you can do, really fun.

Do they have European servers? I am spoiled by BF4 and sub 30ms servers .p

Yep, so far they have NA, EU, and AUS. And I think they said dedicated servers will be coming eventually.

Whether you like the humor or not, the actual gameplay is good, which is more important to me.

If you can't get in the NA servers tonight, you can go to game options and change it to the Australia network, only a 2 minute wait there and the ping isn't that bad.

Played a few more matches. Very fun game.

Got to play one match of this before the matchmaking servers went kaput. Was pretty fun, and the gun customization was pretty slick. It's pretty fast-paced, too.

I'm seriously curious how much that trailer cost. At least a million? Crazy.

I really wanted to like LoG, but the real-time strafe combat kind of turned me off (that, and the focus on puzzles more than combat). I think it could have been more tactful/engaging combat if it had been turn-based, less puzzles, and more adventure.

You can stream to/from anything that can run a Steam client (doesn't have to be SteamOS).
