Eh, Hidden & Dangerous was always better than Rainbow Six...

I LOVED Hidden and Dangerous! It had its issues but it remains one of my best gaming memories ever!

To this date I still can't find better 4 player coop. I mean, it was a piece of shit broken game, but damn it was fun.

There's absolutely no reason to start a new character, and that destroys all the magic for me. The game says that you are this god at everything. Making a second character is yourself forcing this upon yourself. I dunno, I want game systems to direct gameplay, I don't want to imagine game mechanics that aren't there.

Basically it's hard to explain :p

This is why I'm stoked for Divinity Original Sin.

Had no idea what Divinity Original Sin was. Looked it up.

Amazed.

Seems related(sequel?) to Divine Divinity. A game I hated. It had good ideas, but the gameplay was atrocious, you never knew what the hell you were supposed to do and it was very unpolished. Lots of people liked it apparently.

TES is much more an adventuring game than an RPG. It has RPG elements, but you aren't playing a role. You can be everything.

I prefer it that way, honestly. I don't have time to do multiple playthroughs, so I want to see everything and do everything on that one I give it. If a game wants multiple playthroughs, it should be ~10-25 hours. If it's 60-80, I prefer being able to see it all.

My opinion. I'm not saying this is the only way games should be done, I'm saying this is the way games I will love are done.

While I disagree that that's how games should be done, I think we can agree that there's no way you've done everything in Skyrim :p

You could replay the game a bunch of times, do the quest lines you had to skip and experiment different builds.

Amazingly, you can still do so in Skyrim. I just don't get the complaint of "Man, you can be the guild master of all four guilds at the same time!"

Yes, you can. Some people make one character and want to experience all the content with that one character. They can.

If you don't want to do it that way, how about... I dunno... not doing all four guild quest lines with that one character? It doesn't seem that difficult a solution.

I like that I can mix and match. It's a lot of fun to be a werewolf mage who goes on to become the ultimate assassin (though the assassin quests are all way too easy, unfortunately), because you can sneak in with magic, switch to werewolf, murder your victim, run back out again and change back, then go ask the guards what happened (well not really, but okay.)

If all four quest lines were separate, you couldn't mix and match like this.

I got no more enjoyment out of Morrowind forcing me to do three playthroughs and pick three different houses than I got out of doing all four all at once in oblivion.

Typically for Skyrim I make a character for playthrough, think about what he'll do, and then play the quests that make sense for the archetype. But I'm fine if people don't want to do that and want to do all content in one go.

There's absolutely no reason to start a new character, and that destroys all the magic for me. The game says that you are this god at everything.

They worked because the world reacted organically to your character.

Did I miss something in Skyrim where I had more than 1 real choice to make (who to support in the civil war) the entire game?

My biggest gripe with Oblivion/FO3/Skyrim/etc are the lack of necessary and limiting choice. When you can do 95% of all quests in one playthrough, they aren't getting "choice" right at all.

I gotta agree, but disagree.

Skyrim basically never really has any player choice in quests. You're the hero and you do things how they're supposed to be done. Also, you can do every quest, max every skill and become master of every guild. Both these things suck.

In Fallout 3/NV, you have many ways to complete quests. You can pretty much do everything though, but it's definitely not as bad as Skyrim.

Still love both games, but it would be even better if you really had to make choices and specialize. You could replay the game a bunch of times, do the quest lines you had to skip and experiment different builds.

The most amazing trailer, of the most amazing MMO 'RPG' I've ever seen. I've never seen so many, 'REAL' world effecting dialog choices, in a CTF battle trailer.

The affects', just stun me.

I barely understand what you wrote, but I think you're being sarcastic.

Yeah, I saw the trailer, wow, it sucks. It really sucks. It's basically exactly what I want the least about the game.

I hate mmos, but I LOOOOOOVE Elder Scrolls. I'll play it, but I expect to grow tired of it very soon.

There's a tragedy here though. They designed a ton of provinces in a very short time. This mean that they'll be very generic. They won't have the absolute love that Morrowind and Skyrim got for example. This means that the next single player Elder Scroll games' creative liberties will be severly limited...

There's already proof of that, let me dig something up.

Edit: Can't find the image, but basically, the lore describes an Elven city as being amazingly bright and alien, but in ESO it looks like a generic brick fort...

You're out of your mind if you really think that. As if Todd Howard is gonna go "well Zenimax already did Elswyr and it looks like X, so that's what we have to make TES VII look like, even though it's shit." No possible way. This is a barely authorized spinoff game forced by a parent company... I would be hard pressed to consider any of it canon.

I'm not saying they will have NO liberty, but it can only affect things in a negative way.

What? I don't know what you guys have been smoking.

Star Citizen is made by a large team and a lot of them are veterans of the industry that have released top quality games in the past and know how things work. I don't even know why you dragged SC into this, get a better hobby than being negative about this particular random thing in the world.

This game is made by a handful of young indie devs. I saw the interview with the devs at the VGX yesterday and I wasn't filled with confidence that they had the required experience, money, talent and numbers. The amount of features that we saw in the (very scripted)video would be too much for a lot of AAA studios.

After trying to for a while, I just can't get behind these TRUE sandbox games. Let's throw a bunch of random objects in the bin, okay, have fun kids! No I'm not going to sit and draw some tiles around to make my house look pretty for 5 hours. But I see the appeal for others, and this looks like it pushes forward a bit more. It's been fun to watch some of the streams.

Yea I don't get that house stuff either. I make a big hole in the ground with an elevator and then each level has chests to store various types of loot. So 10 chests per level and have the following levels as examples: weapons, armour, resources, potions, etc

Well, if this is anything like Terraria, building your house isn't really the focus. It's about building a shelter to have peace and quiet while you explore the world and come back to store your loot. Terraria is about combat and exploration.

In minecraft though, building is a more important part. You're very vulnerable, so you need proper shelter. Also, stuff you build or caves you dig have a huge impact on gameplay and ease of movement. It's a lot more rewarding and fun to build because it really affects the gameplay. Also, you can build much more interesting things than in a 2D game...

I'd really like to play it, which means that I don't want to play the buggy, unbalanced and incomplete version of it... I'll wait for release.

The kickstarter finished at $2m, 4x what they asked for - what panbient said. Anyway, panbient says the game will probably be delayed and in response, you imply that it might well be delayed ... so why's he talking shit?

It seems illogical to criticise the people urging caution of having unrealistic expectations.

Wow, you didn't know? The kickstarter was started waaay after the actual crowdfunding started on the game's website. They got a lot more money from their site's kickstarter and also asked for more. The Kickstarter had a really low funding amount because they still wanted to get the money. Everyone had already pledged through the main site, so they were afraid not enough would be left for the kickstarter(my interpretation). Their initial crowdfunding run, including the kickstarter, got way more than 2 mil and their initial goal was also more than 2 mil.

Haven't you guys been paying any attention to this???

Confused about this - there's a lot of people really looking forward to this game but I can't fathom how it is possible to have $1,000 ships which can be both value for money and reasonably balanced for everyone else?

They aren't value for money. Well, they're pretty rare, so in a way it may be, but it's all about supporting the game.

Their team is very close to the fans on the forums, in weekly videos, on their site and even in cons. They're making the game with us, this isn't an investor backed AAA game with all these rules are regulations. Stick around the community, there's amazing amounts of discussion between it and the devs.

None of this is good for actual product development. It's great for PR, not for actual development.

I disagree... People voice opinions, there's constant feedback, testing and bug reports done by the community and there's debate.

But yeah, it's PR. We basically are their bosses, so they need to cater to us and make us happy. In AAA development houses, there are videos, meetings and demos geared towards management all the time, so that the dev team can "sell" their ideas to the people who fund them. This is similar, but with us.

Their original plan wasn't 2mil. Investors would have more than doubled that number. The crowdfunding was basically a way for investors to get confidence in the market. Now though, investors are no longer required.

Then why is the initial funding goal on the RSI site $2 million? How does the fact that initial investors provided more than expected negate the original target?

You're just making conclusions on a project that you aren't actually following. Their team is very close to the fans on the forums, in weekly videos, on their site and even in cons.

You are of course reffering to CR's statement that most of the funding goals were known well in advance and that the project management plan took all of that in account with regards to how the money will be allocated. In other words they were always planning to build this kind of game if they could secure the funding. Excuse me if some of us take that with a grain of salt.

Agreed. And for me this jives even less. If these stretch goals were already planned then what was the purpose of the original $2M product pitch? What would have happened if that's all the funding they could have secured? Would the product have simply evaporated due to the lack of funding for the bigger picture version? Why rely on the community to choose the latest features if they were already planned?

Again, I'm not calling this a scam. I do believe the intentions are pure. But every one of these announcements about more funding and new goals just sounds like another technical risk being added to the pile and increasing the chances for catastrophe. Regardless of the claims I don't get the feeling these stretch goals were actually planned ahead of time, they all sound like reactions to unexpected / unprecedented community support.

Basically it seems like this massive support has created a situation where RSI is now pitching how much they can attempt rather than how much they can accomplish. This is not necessarily negative, or a forecast for failure, just something that most people who've dealt with a creative industry have learned to be cautious about. Couple that with the fact that MS had to step in so that we still wouldn't be waiting for Freelancer today and you can probably understand why some of us older nerds are still on the fence about tossing our disposable income onto the money mountain.

Their original plan wasn't 2mil. Investors would have more than doubled that number. The crowdfunding was basically a way for investors to get confidence in the market. Now though, investors are no longer required.

Also, Chris has repeatedly adressed the feature creep concerns and also, the last bunch of stretch goals haven't added new features. Well they added more ships, but this is basically nothing and probably already planned.

You guys are just being negative. No one knows if this will be what we want, but the signs say hell yes. I think that the proper stance to take is being cautiously optimistic rather than your pessimistic stance.
