News Comments > Saints Row: The Third; Sale, Free Weekend

Definitely one of the best games I have played lately.

I just wish that they would release the fist Saints Row on PC but seeing as how financially unstable THQ is right now I guess that's not going to happen.

Oh well, at least there will be a sequel and since this game is really, really awesome it's not that likely that it's going to be cancelled since this could make them some money. Or at least I hope so.

You said it yourself: this is a forum for discussion. Anytime someone asks about what game he should play and you come up with a list of games that this person might like you automatically make an implication about what is of sufficient quality to that person and what is not.
People here expressed their opinion, in one way or the other, about how they perceive the graphics so that gives you at least some information what kind of graphics the person would like
If they don't like FTL - fine. It may have been the developer's wish to make this kind of art style or it may have been a budget problem. In any case there many other games out there that can be to someone's liking who doesn't want to play FTL.

You should be congratulating these guys for coming up with an actual unique game idea and, more importantly, executing it well!

I agree with that. For my part, though I understand the complaints about the general graphic fidelity of some indie games (seriously guys it really isn't whining just because someone else cares more about a certain aspect of a game than you do), I am totally in love with the concept of FTL and can't wait to play it.

That is all well but there are games with have graphics that should be sufficient for the people who complain.
Like I said: you don't have to buy it. If someone likes the concept of the game but is put off by the graphics so much that it becomes a dealbreaker then tough luck.
But maybe that's just me. If a game is fun and has good controls then that's enough, in most cases.

Wow, hard to believe how many people here just outright whine about graphics.

Just a few months back I played Starflight for the first time and had a blast with it. Although the control scheme could have been better.


If you don't like how it looks then don't play it, simple as that.
This just reminds me of last time when people were QQing about A Valley Without Winds.
Good god. No one forces you to play these games. What is wrong with you?

If by "fluff content," you mean "more of the same gameplay that you enjoyed in the first game," sure? Because that's what it was. Just more of the same. Same combat, same exploration, same platforming, same puzzle-solving. DS2 just had more of it and a lot of it was optional.
I am pretty sure what turned many fans of DS1 to disliked DS2 was a complete change to the game play mechanics. While combat, and puzzles were the same, the game play changed from an action game with some RPG-ish elements to a full blown aRPG with inventory management, buying and selling, and grinding for levels. In DS1 War was powerful from start to finish, the RPG-ish elements were just improving his weapons and buying skills. In DS2, you now have to deal with levels, a skill tree, grabbing dropped weapons, selling them to make room for more, buying skills, improving possessed weapons, running into creatures far stronger than Death making him feel significantly weaker than War in the beginning.

While I like both games, the first one was better put together. It was a game where the story fit the game play and the game play mechanics matched. In DS2, the story fits the game play but the game play mechanics clash. DS1 War was powerful throughout the game even after he was stripped of his powers. In DS2, Death is weak and gets stronger, and his weapons sucked and have to be constantly replaced. For a supposed horseman of the apocalypse, it clashes with the story but is done that way to fit it to the aRPG game mechanics.

In other words, they took a Action game like Ninja Gaiden/Devil May Cry and made it more like Diablo.

Which is why I am interested in Darksiders 2.
When I saw the first one I didn't pay it much attention because after seeing a few gameplay videos I've written it off as some boring action adventure, but now that they have introduced an RPG system and an open world it makes the game much more interesting and I don't think I am the only one who thinks that way.

Still, cannot afford to buy games full price since I rarely finish them anymore, due to a lack of time. And then the interest fades. Hope it will be at least 50% off during the winter sale.

News Comments > Natural Selection 2 Exosuit Reveal; Beta Access Ending
9. Re: Natural Selection 2 Exosuit Reveal; Beta Access Ending Aug 28, 2012, 14:46 yuastnav
 
I remember that after some time I loathed the Half Life engine and could not understand why they discarded the net code from the original Quake 2 basis, which was probably the best part. Stupid move there, Valve.
The thing is that it was too slow for Natural Selection, if you were a quick fade it would be entirely possible for you to die after you blinked around two corners already.
When they announced that they were going to use their own engine I was relieved because I thought they were going to do a good job.

Well, the netcode is basically even worse than in the original Half Life. I literally stood in front of a non-moving marine (as a Skulk) and bit him three or four times and not one single attack connected (we both had a normal ping) and have seen similar things happen to other players.
Same thing happens when you try to shoot a Skulk as a marine. The bullets do not seem to hit. :/


On the other hand Natural Selection 2 is the game that Natural Selection wanted to be. Natural Selection should have been a slightly scary, dark game where you had this asymmetric constellation of teams and while the latter part was still true it just wasn't that dark or scary (especially because people cranked up the brightness in competitive games anyway).
Unfortunately the movement is not as smooth in Natural Selection 2 as it is in Natural Selection 1. For some reason they decided not to implement bunny hopping which was really fun when you played as a Skulk (and other glitches, like wall-running as a marine etc.) so it makes this game less competitive than Natural Selection in general (at least to me).

But the atmosphere is much better. The lighting is really good, especially when you go into a dark room with your flashlights because the power node was killed and try to find those skulks. So if they actually manage to smooth this game out then it's going to be really good, it already is.


Fortunately most of the changes they made are decent and pretty fun, cannot really complain. I will miss the Fade's blink but the current ability is kind cool, too. Much more like the blink from 1.04.

A PC is a Personal Computer. A Macintosh is a PC. PC doesn’t automatically mean x86, damn it. Politically Correct.

A bit off topic, but I thought I would comment on this. While it is certainly true that "personal computers" don't have to be x86 to be "personal computers," or PCs, today's Mac is 100% x86 and has been for several years. The only substantive difference between a Dell and a "Mac" is the Operating System that ships with each. The Mac will natively run either of two x86 OSes ROOB, or both: Windows and OS X. The Dell runs Windows natively, too, and the only reason you won't find OS X on a Dell is because Apple has intentionally created that situation and has made it "illegal" (both in terms of law and software) to install OS X to any non Apple-branded x86 computer system. Again, Macs are 100% x86 today, so that quote is a tad out of date. (Not to mention the fact that today's "x86" is certainly not "your father's x86", either.)

That may be true but it's really bugging me when people say things like "A Mac and a PC" or "For PC, Mac and Linux" because it's really stupid. Macs are PCs and Linux is also an operating system that is used on PCs and it's really not that difficult to say "For Win(dows), Mac and Linux" or something like that.
This may be (at least partially) attributed to the old "I'm a Mac and I'm a PC" ads but that doesn't make it right (or clever).

But again, you are right.

You all, perhaps due the severity of your buthurtedness, are missing the point entirely here.

I don't really give a shit about gays, or what they do. Only when I see stuff like this does it become a problem because I don't think they deserve any special attention or privilege.

The only ones I don't have a problem with when they do this is based on race. The reason for that should be obvious. However here in North America, there are only 2 races where this is acceptable. Blacks and Natives.

The only reason this shit blows up like this is because you fascist pricks think you own everyone.

So you can all put down the eye spreaders + drops and turn off the Ludwig Van.

I'm done here. (i think...)

Us fascists? You are the one who is talking about races!
There is only one human race on this planet that is still alive and this is the homo sapiens. You are still stuck in the 20th century with your outdated ideas and ideals and since you are mad that the world has left you behind a long time ago you start making up bs and calling everyone else a hypocrite.
The only thing that has come out of you are insults because you fail entirely to make a coherent argument.
Stop being so fething delusional.

You failed to come up with counter-arguments (though to be fair: it's impossible) and spouted more bs instead.

Ah yes, here is another great fallacy. "But but, the animals do it!" Many animals also eat each other. How about that cannibal minority? Where are their equal rights? So blind and stupid....

How is that a fallacy? Animals are gay, humans are also animals. Why would nature change that? It wouldn't make any sense.
Also, if you haven't heard, there are cannibalistic tribes when it comes to humans. Humans eat each other, too. Other societies have developed a set of morals that forbids that, though. There is nothing else stopping us from eating each other but there is just no need for that because we don't have to do that anymore.
You do the same mistake again, though. If we allowed cannibalism there would not be equality anymore because some people would be allowed to eat others. We'd have an inequal society.
We have the same thing here since people like you don't want other sexualities to have the same rights.

So? I didn't say morals were bad. They are necessary, without them we wouldn't be where we are. But morals have downsides, too, because people can have a set of morals that leads to an inequal society, whereas a pack of animals without morals or reason would base their lives on instinct and would not make a distinction between members who are gay and those who are not.

"Being gay is normal. & Being gay is not a choice." Wrong. I don't care what anyone says, you or the egghead community. If you insist that it is, let's see the proof. Show me the 'gay gene'. You can't because it's bullshit.

So basically you are stating that opposing opinions do not concern you and that you will believe whatever you want? Then this discussion is kinda moot.
Furthermore, why do you think there is a "gay gene"? It is more likely that homosexuality (and in argumentum e contrario heterosexuality) comes to be thorugh a specific configuration of a set of other genes.

Only because you may not understand it it doesn't mean that people who do are "drinking the kool-aid". And yes, scientists do know nigh infinitely more than you do because they are not blinded by that irrational rage that you developed for some reason, probably from upbringing or environmental influence or chance - most likely a mix of all of that. And guess what: it is the same with murderers. Maybe some people are genetically better predisposed to become murderers but that alone is not enough. There are a lot of other factors that you have to consider but that is not relevant to our discussion because one's sexuality is mostly something that is decided before birth.

And don't forget: Humans are not born with a specific set of morals or ethics so no one is born a homophobe. You become one.

Actually, no human being is born gay (or straight), either. Sexual attraction is developed during puberty. There is no consensus on the origin of same-sex attraction... and there are certainly no peer reviewed studies that have identified a biological "cause" of same-sex attraction. While biology might very well play a role, you are channeling your beliefs here... not facts.

At least you admit that this is about changing other people's morals. I applaud your honesty. Why you feel qualified to impose your morality on others, I don't know...

In a world where no one cared about sexuality, we wouldn't have gaming groups dedicated to certain sexualities. But obviously some people do care.


It does not really matter when sexual attraction is developed. Every person is wired in a certain way and some of these things only take effect at a certain age. Some may be prone to fall to some illness easier than others, some are fated to develop a condition with a higher probability etc. and some are born gay, others straight, other asexual and what not.

And yes, it is about morals. There is no such thing as immorality, only morality that differs form the morality of a certain individual or a group (i.e. society).
Humans differ from animals slightly in the sense that they have reason and morals are a function of that reason. It is a credo and a curse.
Though homophobia is a result of morality. Without morals homophobia would not exist (for that see other animals).

It's not really about silencing those who believe otherwise but at such a point the belief that being gay is not normal just becomes irrational and is therefore probably ascribable to bigotry and hate.

Would you agree that a person who feels that gay behavior is not normal has just as much right to speak about it in the public square? To create places where they feel able to gather and feel "safe" in their opinions? Of course, there would be consequences. Would you support someone being fired or their business being boycotted because they support gay marriage? So how about Chick-Fil-A?
[...]

Again, at this point it just begins to be irrational hatred. The problem is that such people would want to reduce the rights of those they do not like, in this case gay people. Since we probably should live in a society that procures equality to all people who are born with a number of specific traits (like gender, sex, sexuality etc.) such an opinion is misplaced. There is no such thing as "gay behaviour", it's "human behaviour".

Just FYI.

I always drove from a 3rd person perspective anyway, so that doesn't bother me. I know purists will argue that you're not really "doing it right" unless you drive from a cockpit view, but games just never get the cockpit view right. Instead of making you feel like you're behind the driving wheel, to me it always feels like you're instead sitting in the middle of the back-seat.

Creston

Driving in the cockpit view would only make sense if you were to play a real simulator with wheel and everything and Grid is more of an arcade game so there's nothing wrong with the third person view.
Though that is just my opinion.
