News Comments > Tomb Raider "Exceeded Profit Expectations"
29. Re: Tomb Raider Mar 7, 2014, 17:31 dumpy
 
I'm playing through this at the moment on the PS3 and I am very impressed. The one-dimensional over-sexualised Lara of previous games has been given depth she deserved. The player bears witness to her development as they guide her through combat, puzzles and exploration. It sounds morbid, but I always have a laugh at the death scenes - some of them are very inventive.

Does this require Ubisoft Uplay? The one thing that stopped me from playing Anno is that I forgot my password, and amongst the multitude of usernames and passwords I have for various reasons, I couldn't be bothered to create another arbitrary password that I will just forget in another 3 weeks.

While I can appreciate the strengths of Battlefield 3 (and other efforts from DICE such as Mirror's Edge), my experience regarding technical support, and observations on how they reacted to the general outcry gave me the impression they just didn't respect the customer. It appeared their stance was one of Complete-Silence. I found it disgusting, especially after developing such a great relationship with Bad Company 2.

It is as simple as this - I knew what to expect, and I was right. My observations weren't difficult to make. Sadly, the only way to hold developers and publishers accoutable is through the consumer, and my voice is drowned out by the multitude of morons going out to buy their games.

I trialled WoW briefly and I was not impressed - low level fetch quests are not interesting. I have never understood the game's popularity.

More recently, I have bought Guild Wars 2. I liked the pay-once scheme and the art, exploration, and community engagement during gameplay.

Though, both games had the same wierd problem that I have never experienced in any other game besides these two MMOs. That is the wierd hotkey combat and player movement. I never felt engaged because of it.

The animations in ESO look pretty awful as well.

As enjoyable as most Bethesda games are (I'm currently playing through both Skyrim and Fallout 3), they're usually fairly buggy. Best option might be to wait 6 to 12 months for patches and mod maturity.

But that's not going to happen.

"Games for Windows Live titles published by Microsoft are no longer available for purchase from any marketplace"

The most idiotic financial move of the decade? I recognise that GFWL sucks and I'm happy they're making moves to contain it, but the ramifications of this decision seem inconceivable.

While they have done games that could be described as 'bad' in many different ways, they have also done some pretty good games. Rather than writing them off, I would urge people to be critically analytical =)

For the record, I most definitely do not like Randy Pitchford.

Dust 2?

I would prefer a god game, similar to Black & White. I wish them the best of luck. On a related note, I'm looking forward to At The Gates =D

I'm an Australian who hasn't been keeping up with ALL of the news concerning ratings and games but the comment "while the games will be legal to own in Australia, they cannot be publicly sold there" caught my attention.

It has never affected me. Nonetheless, I vented a sigh of relief when the rating was finally approved. I feel I'm finally beginning to understand the frustration some people have for the ESRB.

News Comments > Thief E3 Presentation
29. Re: Thief E3 Presentation Jun 14, 2013, 20:38 dumpy
 
There is a Gamespot interview/gameplay video as well that states THIS IS NOT A PREQUEL OR SEQUEL BUT AN ENTIRE REIMAGINING of the "franchise".

The video in the topic description doesn't really give a good impression, but I searched youtube for another and found a IGN video from E3 2013 showcasing gameplay, and it looked much better.

They do state that the game is still a work in progress, so the ugly UI and guard models (what the hell is wrong with their eyes?) will hopefully be fixed. The IGN video also clarifies what features can be turned off, which shows promise.

That the drop-knockout animations from a single button press is pretty lame, and it is MUCH too bright from Garret's perspective.

Apprehensively keeping an eye out.

I expect they will release this as a DLC or as a patch to people who already own the game - much like how the enhanced Witcher games have been released. Would seem like pretty bad PR to do otherwise. Does anyone know of any official statements concerning this?

I expect they will market it as new and improved, with a moderate to high retail price? I have already paid (in more than one way) for the original and was very disappointed. If I were to find it in the bargain bin I would give it a chance, but that's not going to happen is it? No thanks.

24. Re: Thief Trailer Jun 7, 2013, 22:13 dumpy
 
Changing the voice of an iconic character is a dangerous step to make for a developer, but I'm sure the changes made to the lore, gameplay, and style, and not to mention these awesome CGI trailers, will bring in enough new gamers to offset the loss of fans.

Sarcasm aside, it is a bit early to write this game off. But I do encourage fans to let their voices be heard.

News Comments > Metro: Last Light HUD "Fix" Inbound
15. Re: Metro: Last Light HUD May 15, 2013, 10:58 dumpy
 
I'm playing through at the moment, and it's great fun. I have noticed a couple of graphical glitches, but nothing game breaking. I tend to dislike tight FOV as it makes me uneasy, but the use in this case aids the development of a very immersive atmosphere. The development team have done an amazing job, on my 7 year old computer, it runs on near optimal settings flawlessly. I get the impression that some people feel they were entitled to adjustable FOV? A shame that something so trivial has so much sway.

2004 called, they want their graphics back.

Now that Microsoft have started the ball rolling on the release of the next Xbox, we can expect Sony to follow (in the interests of hardware superiority). I would prefer this to release on PS3, as I intend to buy one once I find a good deal.

For those that don't know, GFWL died a while ago, they no longer update it.

I always thought Garret was a cool character, and the new look is definitely Desmondised.

You can only be cool if you're not trying to be cool, but people think you're cool anyway. So stop trying Eidos! Didn't you learn this at school?
