The critical flaw with streaming is that there's lag. It makes inputs less responsive and means that you're too late to react to what's really happening in the game. Any game that requires actual player skill would suffer significantly. Also, to Stream really high quality graphics with no compression artifacts, you'd need an internet connection that I'm not sure exists or is affordable to us mortals.

It's too late for HL3. If or when it does come around it will end up just like Duke Nukem Forever. A game that rots in development hell for that long has very little chance of succeeding. I do have hope for Source 2 though, the original Source spawned some pretty great games, and is probably one of the best FPS engines ever designed.

I'm not a fan of the source engine. Loading times are atrocious and it's had sound issues since forever. It's also only good for tight corridors or barren landscapes.

Also, what do they mean by mouselook?? I already look around with the mouse...

You'll be able to pan the camera around without having to hold down the right mouse button. (Ie, The Quickest Way To Get RSI.)

Presumably it'll be a toggle. One state allows mouselook and the other allows clicking and interacting.

Yeah, I forgot about that. That was really annoying. You'll get used to anything...

f-ck the combat in this game. The tactical view is atrocious. It makes it painful to do things and it constantly obstructs your view. Closing the rift is a puzzle game in itself because it's so hard to get the rift into camera view.

I think that's one of the reasons I stopped playing awhile back and haven't been back. The combat just seems like a pain in the ass...


It's a good reason, but once you understand how it actually works, you can get it to do what you want most of the time. So far I'd give the game a 7, and it's mostly due to the combat. It's the core of the game, it should be painless.

But this was "Game of the Year" by various supposedly reputable award shows? Maybe the game intro and credits were amazing and put them over the top if the combat didn't.

I'm guessing that on consoles, since their control system sucks anyway, tactical view may actually be something that would help.

You can't even queue commands. Let's say you want to go into stealth and go stab an enemy, you have to do this:
- Pause/Enter tactical view
- Activate stealth.
- Unpause.
- Wait for stealth to activate
- Quickly pause before your other characters get attacked too much.
- Right click on target to select it as permanent target.
- Activate backstab skill.
- Unpause.
- Watch your character run in circles for 5 seconds and then stagger towards target. Once he reaches the target, the skill doesn't hit anything because it activated the skill too early. Restart half the steps in order to do the backstab skill again. This time your character doesn't activate the skill because he's stuck in invisible geometry... etc.

This isn't a rare occurence, it happens all the time. If at any time you accidently go out of tactical view, your party members promptly forget all their orders. Even in tactical view sometimes they forget orders randomly. I've played this game for like 20 hours, I know what I'm talking about.

DA1 and 2 had much better combat systems. Major step back here.

i think it looks kewl! definitely not a game for everyone tho.

i was just thinking how blasted d3 got for visuals......being it a d3 clone and all....

What? How is this a Diablo clone? Bombshell is a twin-stick shooter. Diablo is an ARPG. The only similarity is the camera angle and the fact that you're killing stuff.

Official word on the game is that it's an ARPG with skills and upgrades. http://www.bombshell.com/

From the site's description:

Brilliantly brutal isometric shooting layered with classic role-playing mechanics, including experience points, upgrades, side quests, and non-linear levels. All with a twist of first-person shooter mechanics.

Sounds more like a twin-stick shooter with RPG elements. Gameplay footage reinforces that.

Agreed, but they specifically say that it's an action RPG :p

Why is the combat broken? Let's say you give an order to one of your party members. As soon as you switch to another party member, the previous one will forget his order and just do whatever they want. If you want orders to stick, you need to switch to tactical view. Why? Who the f-ck knows! In tactical view you can't have direct control of your character, so you're forced to let the SHITTY AI take over and see your character just tap dance in front of an enemy instead of attacking it. It's a damn mess.

I kinda got used to it now, but damn it's painful.

Also, what do they mean by mouselook?? I already look around with the mouse...

My biggest fear is that they use the Rage engine. I f-ing hate it. It looks awful.

I'm pretty sure they'll reuse the Skyrim engine, but heavily improved.

They can't make such an announcement about the presentation and not announce Fallout 4. Impossible.

The fact that they are delaying this several times now just shows they don't want it to be an unoptimized port, as some are saying. If this was going to be an unoptimized port, then it would be out right now.


I disagree, you can't say that. Unacceptable games have come out with delays time and time again. It's no science, but if there's a delay, it means that there's a major issue with the game. Release dates are very serious and a ton of things are in place and a lot of money is lost when they're missed. So they're just going to fix it enough, so that they don't get sued or something. Let's hope I'm wrong.

Played the strafe demo. It's definitely fun, but I don't know why I would play it... Nothing special about it. If you want that kind of game, I HIGHLY suggest the brutal Doom mod. It truly changes the game and for me it's the best shooter I've played in years.

Yeah I love Binding of Isaac. Perfect game to just start and quickly play without using your brain too much. The combat is pretty bad though... I think the game would be way better if you didn't have to fight with f-ing tears... Azazel FTW!!!

Ok, so what what would it make less empty in your opinion?

Well, the short answer is, play Freelancer.
I must also reiterate that I haven't played Elite, so take what I say with a grain of salt.
But, what I mean is, every solar system should be somewhat unique and have a different look, or at least have randomly generated unique features like, asteroid belts, all kinds of weird nebulas, ships cemetaries, ruins of stations or old battles, hidden stations, anomalies, hidden worm holes, mine fields. Then add interesting commercial routes around these things that force you to go and explore these different areas and find your own routes or shortcuts. Then have zones that you can't go without specific technologies, equipment or skill level and have them populated with unique mission types and different random encounters. You should want to go and explore all these different systems. Now you don't really care, they're all empty black boxes with generic stations strewn around. That's what it feels like anyway...

Yes it is

Well if you are looking for a story driven gameplay you won't find it here.
Think of it like a city builder game. They give you the tools and the World and you go make your own story.
I am not bored of it and I play it since the beta. It's not for everyone for sure, but if you did like the original Elite games you'll love this one.

Empty is the key word in what I said. Take the Freelancer multiplayer mode. Their universe is full of different stuff, detail and action everywhere and it has a strong exploration element. Elite's universe is much bigger, but it seems barren. I've played a lot of freeform sandbox open world games, and I can't stand the "empty" ones.

Yeah I guess they just said that they loved Bioshock. I think that Ken wants to do Bioshock style games, not SS2 style games. He's more about story and setting than gameplay.

This. I thought Bioshock was nothing like System Shock, all the great game elements of SS were missing or dumbed down beyond recognition. Not really hopeful its SS anyway.

Yeah, it blows my mind that those who loved System Shock would want more of Bioshock instead! It's a completely different game. As for rating Bioshock by itself, it's boring. The game is basically a linear call of duty with shitty combat and some weapons that aren't guns. The story was somewhat interesting, but I was so bored that I couldn't even finish the game(yes I know all about the twists). Bioshock infinite was the exact same game, but I liked the story slightly better, so I was at least able to finish it, but man, the gameplay sucks.

I don't want Ken to do a System Shock. I want open levels, rpg elements, customization and choices!
