News Comments > Gone Gold - Alien: Isolation
27. Re: Gone Gold - Alien: Isolation Sep 10, 2014, 10:21 ItBurn
 
Evil Within looks aweful... But I hate the resident evil games. They're way too cheesy and silly for me to be scared or to take it seriously. And on the gameplay side, I really hate the way they do third person.

I'm still watching it though, I love horror games and maybe this is different enough.

Please be good please be good please be good.

Wasn't there some negativity recently regarding the AI being contrived?
Like no matter what choices you made, the alien would be in the exact same place at the exact same time?
Hope this is good after previous Alien attempts.

I don't know but it's pretty much down to the Alien AI in terms of if this game is worth buying. I dig the retro sci-fi atmosphere and the fact that it's not a shooter. If it has baked in scripted events that play out regardless of what you do then that will be a huge letdown.

They stated clearly that the alien isn't always at the same place and doing the same thing. But you can bet your ass that there'll be some scripted events. This is in no way a deal breaker. Amnesia was even more scripted than this.

That being said, I'm going to wait for a review or two, but if it's good, oh damn, I'm all over it.

I found Mac's YouTube channels by chance a few years ago; now I always look forward to his posts for a good laugh.

The only problem he has is that he's extremely misogynistic which has already gotten him some heat. He did a review of a Fire and Rescue game that just went too far.

I think his stuff is great, but kids watch his channel and Worth a Buy is getting more popular, so I think he really needs to reign in the highly offensive stuff.

I don't agree about the misogyny. His story made sense and I totally agree with his points. I've heard this argument many times before from respectable people. It was just facts. I mean his mother could be dead today if he didn't take matters into his own hands. I'm not trying to solve social issues or anything here, and he wasn't either, but that wasn't misogyny, it was a valid opinion.

Is he offensive sometimes though, sure :p Well not to me... I'm not a 10 yr old kid.

Edit: The vid isn't fresh in my mind, so don't sue me.

I agree, it's not a sport. Just another competitive activity, BUT.

It's more of a sport than poker though... Take car racing, another activity where there's a debate about it being a sport or not. It demands high reflexes and a lot of physical prowess to win a race, but you're basically doing nothing, sitting in a chair and letting the car do the work. Poker on the other hand requires no physical skill, just your brain. (you could argue that the poker face is physical...). Gaming is like racing. It requires high reflexes, tight coordination and dexterity.

So basically, if you think racing is a sport, gaming should also be a sport.

All that matters is that our "athletes" get the benefits they deserve from governments and stuff. If it requires naming what they do a sport, so be it.

I don't like Capcom. They make terrible ports, have the worst DLC practices and aren't shy about draining their fans from every penny with their full priced minor updates. It doesn't help that I haven't liked a game from them in like 10 years, except maybe one or two DS games.

There is absolutely no point in playing vanilla minecraft. The mods that are out now offer a million times more. I don't know why they bother... Maybe for consoles?

It does suck that the game doesn't force you through the story again, but about lvl 70, the game starts at level 70.

Couch co-op is such a blast, theres some sort of weird trading/gifting functionality, nemesis stuff and so on.
I've just found out about that nemesis monster stuff today. That's pretty awesome.

NEMESIS MONSTERS (ULTIMATE EVIL EDITION)


Avenge your friends and slay the Nemesis!
In Diablo III - Reaper of Souls: Ultimate Evil Edition, you and your friends will come to know your most challenging enemy: the Nemesis Monster. When playing with a hero that is level 10 or greater, any non-elite, non-boss monster that defeats you has a chance to turn into a Nemesis monster. The Nemesis monster will then depart the game with a single, sinister intent: hunting down someone on your friends list! Nemesis monsters will not target heroes below level 10 and will never spawn in Hardcore mode.

When a Nemesis monster invades a victim’s game, it will spawn near that player as long as he or she is not in town, viewing a cut-scene, or fighting a boss. Each time it kills a player, the Nemesis monster will grow in power, then move to another game from the victim’s friends list (up to five times).

Powerful rewards await you and possibly your friend if you are able to defeat a Nemesis Monster.
Link

I play hardcore, so that's pretty useless...

Does the ultimate evil edition get anything from patch 2.10? Like the greater rifts, ladders, goblin world and especially, the fixing of the skills?

One of the reasons I like ladder is due to the economy reset which isn't possible in the PC version but is with consoles.

What? Economy is reset in the PC versions of the Seasons too.


There's zero economy in the game other than what you own since the PC version has everything bound to the account. I don't think you can even give someone gold anymore.

You can trade items on PC. There's no specific interface that I know of for that though. You just drop the item. I never actually searched for one, I just drop it...

Unsurprisingly, Targetting and all interfaces are a pain on the console version.

I'd say my experience is the opposite. Once you figure out the menu system, it's wonderfully organized.

I've not noticed a problem with targeting, either.


I haven't played the console version, but all the gametrailer dudes said that. Basically, if you go in menus(maybe just shops?), it stops everyone from playing and you have to wait for each player to do his thing. For targeting, it targets in front of you or something and it's apparently hard to target specific enemies when there's lots of action at higher difficulties.

Unsurprisingly, Targetting and all interfaces are a pain on the console version. The PC and console versions are essentially the same now that the auction house is closed, except that the PC version is easier to play. I guess that the couch coop thing the console version does might be interesting to you.

Gametrailers just had a discussion about this and the conclusion was unanimous: PC wins. link

Because society isn't heartless and uncivil enough, let's train kids to be griefers for entertainment. Better yet, let's get them to grief their friends, so that they'll have even less compassion for random strangers.

This is fun?

I was going to take the low road, but I'll take the high one instead. Hacking in Watch Dogs is fun. It's fun to hack and it's fun to be hacked. Hacking your friends makes this so much more fun. You have no idea.

I would say it's less about the graphics and more about the art design/style. Look at Borderlands, I wouldn't call it the sharpest game on the block in terms of graphics but the art style works and they've done a hell of a lot of work to make it not feel like an unreal game in terms of movement and shooting.

I personally hate the look and especially the feel in Borderlands... Still, great game in coop.

At this point graphics are so meaningless to me. I don't need some huge next generation breakthrough. It'll be nice to get bigger worlds and further draw distances than the prior consoles allowed, but otherwise? I've yet to play a AAA game and say "wow, this game would be so much better if the graphics were better." Nor have I really said "well, this game kind of sucks, but the graphics are so good I'm going to keep playing it." Back in the 90s, when graphics evolved so rapidly, sure.

Now? I have a 4 year old PC and don't feel like spending a grand to build a new one. Until recently I played on a CRT and often kicked down resolution in favor of FPS.

Crysis was great, I thought. Graphics weren't a major part of that. FC3 was arguably lesser quality graphics (many here have made that argument, I do not agree.) I felt it was a better game.

I think that graphics can still greatly improve the enjoyment of a game. I can imagine such a game. Immersion is a big part graphics and it can really make a game. Graphics to me isn't just better textures or more polygons, it's also more detailed worlds with better animations and physics.

You still don't NEED good graphics to make a good game, but a shitty game will still be shitty regardless of graphics.

The mutants in Farcry 1 were great. It added a Predator and Jurassic Park vibe to it. It was scary as hell in some parts. It added a lot of variety. I admit that the rocket mutants were a bit overkill near the end of the game. It's like people complaining about the undead in Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Loved those.

Farcry 1 is probably in my top 5 best games of all time. I played the multiplayer too much. Crysis was pretty good, but it's just not as fun for some reason. I'm actually replaying Crysis 1 these days. Man the graphics... It looks better and offers more than... ALL current games... Time really stopped for gaming years ago.

Not sure if this would be the right thread to ask but here it goes anyway.

Just finished watching Black Sails Season 1, and Im seriously stoked for some Man-O-War action on the high seas.

Is there a Naval PC game out there that can cater to my needs? So basically looking for a kind of "Pirates!" game.

I hate Pirates! It's a simple arcade mini-game collection. Black Flag is the best modern pirate game, but it's still pretty arcadey and it's 50% pirate 50% assassin. If you want a real pirate simulation, you have to look at the old Akella games. They're incredibly hard to get into though. If you're not scared of spending hours learning it, I can suggest Pirates of the Carribean. It's one of my favorite games of all time. It's pretty old now though... You can check the sequels like Age of Pirates: Caribbean Tales and the like, but I couldn't get into them because they lack a real main quest. They're all freeform rpgs.
