From the footage I've seen, it's hard not to be enthusiastic. I like what they've done with the graphics. The backgrounds are really lively.

I loved Oddworld, so I don't think it'll be hard for me to love this remake. This remake, for once, is a good thing.

News Comments > Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor DLC Released
26. Re: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor DLC Released Feb 25, 2015, 14:37 Quinn
 
You're right, when you look at games critically you are doing the same shit every time. The difference with other RPGs is that the context differs with every sidequest. Not with SoM. Look, if every sidequest was as "rich" and diverse in context as those golden icon quests, I wouldn't be complaining.

But 20+ hours of main/sidequests? That's not true, but that is because to me... Those quests you keep repeating albeit in different areas without different context I call fillers. Filling-quests if you will. To me, a sidequest is a quest that isn't part of the main story per se but has a tiny and UNIQUE story of its own. Not "assassinate Uruk chieftain", "kill 60 uruks in one streak" and "shoot 50 uruks in 5 minutes" times 300.

When there are no more stories to tell, a game is burnt out to me.

SMH.... You can't possibly believe that rant applies to this discussion. SoM doesn't have as much content as Skyrim? That's your takeaway from my post? LOL... Not a single person is making an arguement otherwise.

It's called an example, react less and think more.

There is a difference between main quests, side quests... and just wandering around killing random things. What you seem to be considering "random killing" time in Skyrim is not really, they are simply side-quests yuo have stumbled upon without Fisher-Price quest markers. Would you feel better about the length of content in SoM if the Sword/Bow/Dagger quests didn't have map markers, and you had to find them in the game world on your own? Doubtful.

The main+side quests in SoM take ~15-20 hours to play through, not the 5 hours harlock claims. He is very obviously skipping over ALL of the side-quests in SoM if he really thinks it's that short.

Are there more side-quests to do in Sykrim? Yes, of course.
Is that relevant to this discussion of how much content is in SoM? Not really...

In your earlier comment you talk about fucktons of content some wilfully skip because it has no quest marker attached to it. That would work if you talk about Skyrim, but NOT SoM. Why not? Because there's NO content except for the places with markers attached to it. None at all. That:s why I jumped on you bringing Skyrim into the discussion with Harlock -- it obviously doesn't work.

Like Harlock I don't agree there was enough content, be it marked or not. Beside the amount of content, the amount of content was also always the same: go from point A to B and kill shit by bow (ranged), sword (melee) or dagger (stealth). *yawn* After 10 times.

I think you simply don't understand how to play sandbox games.

Skyrim can be beaten in an hour. GTA5 can be beaten in 6 hours. The main goal of these games is to play and explore them though, not simply rush to the end with the least effort possible.

A normal person would spend dozens if not hundreds of hours playing and beating these games... even though there is merely "xyz hours worth of story content". Shadow of Mordor is basically no different. You are willfully and purposely skipping over fucktons of content simply because it doesn't have a quest marker attached to it.

You can't possibly bring Skyrim into your argument. "Fucktons of content"?! Have you played SoM?! Honestly, you cannot have if you say stuff like that.

Compared to Skyrim, I can say with utmost confidence that there's NO FUCKING SHIT to do in SoM outside of the quests. Outside of quests you can collect some shit. If you're a "skilled" player you maybe die 3 or 4 times in total, so you have your lukewarm army raised in 2 hours.

In Skyrim you run into a cave and meet a bunch of sect psychos you have to kill and stuff like that. You don't have that in SoM either. It's just dirst and grass and hills and an occasional ruin, and on all that, they've dropped Uruks.

Again: Outside of the quests there is NO. SHIT. TO. DO. UNLESS you like killing Uruks for 10s of hours and are into collecting collectibles.

PS: There's no gear to find either. Whoop! Whoop!

There is no rational reason to preorder a game, like ever. It's not rational. I will admit that Ive done it on ocasion, but it was never a rational choice.

As I said before, there's absolutely no rational argument against this statement. The only one even close is "But I like the preorder bonus!", but that's only for people who have no idea how much time and money is put in the efforts of balancing a game properly nor give a shit about balance anyway. Because that pre-order bonus as good as always takes that balance and rapes it so hard there's nothing recognizable left of it afterward.

Jesus how comes that everytime Rockstar announce anything PC related, they sound like they have a sarcastic smirk on their face?

Copy-pasting an apology, too... Fucking hell.

PS: Let me correct nin as someone who isn't even waiting for the game: It ain't funny. These last-second delays are a fucking joke and it should raise many eyebrows to their management and how this could be a sign to an optimization clusterfuck once again.

What has Turtle Rock done for Evolve?

[cannot progress question]

What has TR done for Evolve. Hmmm. They... birthed it? Let them create 10.000 cosmetic DLCs and all price them a 100 dollars a piece for all I care. I once put one of those dumb steam cards on the steam marketplace for 10 dollars hoping some no-lifer who somehow gives a shit about those things would blindly and accidentally buy it. Nobody seemed to care I did, because those who wanted the card weren't dumb enough to buy it and then there are the millions of steam users who don't give a fuck about the cards at all anyway.

I can give y'all a solid fact: Myself (steam name Vince), my cousin (steam name Yuu) and my friend (steam name Royaldeath) have been and still are enjoying the hell out of Evolve. That's at least 33 hours into the game and counting. Well worth the money you'd pay for any game. It's a solid experience and if both the soldiers and the monster are veteran players, you are in for intense matches that make the neighbors go "STFU!".

So, people.. go ahead and bitch the fuck along. Personally, I'm tired as fuck that people here can bitch about games they haven't even played.

"At least I didn't buy Evolve." -nin

Got a GTX 680. Still waiting for the next AMD VS nVidia war I hope to break out soon. I like the price/quality effect these have.

So far nVidia owns the market, so buying an N card now doesn't feel like the wise thing to do.

The GTX 680 still does his job. Trying to be patient.

Can someone really tell me why they are so worked up over the DLC plan of Evolve since it's really nothing more than cosmetics and post-release additions?

Isn't this what most people WANT from DLC?

It feels like they spent too much time scheming on ways to incorporate DLC into their game and not enough time on producing a sold, fun game to play.

The game may be fun for a select few but it's no where near hitting the mark of a $60 AAA title.

He paid $100 for it! Can you believe that????


And you didn't play it! =D That signature. Lmao.

At least I did buy Evolve and enjoying it with friends for a week now and know what the fuck I'm talking about when I spout my unimportant shit on the internet.

Steam has me sitting at 36 hours of play time...I'm still finding entertainment value. I just don't see the issue here, it's really no different than games of similar vein in terms of game play style. The only thing I'd say is an issue is that a lot of people might be turned off with the hunting aspect and the inherent downtime involved.

As for the DLC, I really don't see the problem with it, it's currently nothing more than cosmetics and the add-on of the 4 extra hunters and monster are post-release content...

It needed some hands-on experience before I could agree with you, but now I do. Been playing about 33 hours now. Still enjoying it; still can't wait to get home and be extra lovely to my wife so she would allow me some uninterrupted hours

Same with the DLC. It's cheap shit, but if people wanna pay many dollars for cosmetic shite... the joke is on them.

My only real issue with the game is the fact that I can write 24 essays and cook about 68 masterchef meals between every match. It's horrible. There are 3 timers. The first is a 1:15 mins timer so people have time to check their performance of the earlier match. Ppl can press READY, but ofc they hardly ever do. Then there's the second 30 secs timer, where you're just watching a screen preparing you for the next match. After a loading screen, you have to "wait for other players" so you're eating out of your arsehole because your computer is too fast. Then the last 1:30 mins timer starts where people can choose their class -- but they really can't because the game decides for you based on your priority list. Again you often have to wait the full 1:30 minutes because players forget to select their perk or shit like that. After that, somehow, another loadingscreen (what did it load before while I had to wait for other players to load?). After that, a cutscene as we give the monster a chance to run off.

In short, there's about 5 minutes intermission between matches. What the motherfucking fuck!?

Ok with first part, but you ended with that tired angle of "why not just do the real thing?". Well playing cards with another on a PC is still the same thing, it's still the same game and the same rules. No reason to feel one is better than the other. Whatever the peoples like.

Except the idea behind Hand of Fate is that you're creating a third-person action gameplay scenario with the cards you choose or are dealt (not sure how it works, exactly). Good luck pulling that off on an actual physical table!

Oh right specifically about Hand of Fate, but just the general blah blah we get with "why not just do the real thing instead?", weak sauce stuff.

Can't disagree with you. IT's weak sauce stuff. I don't know HoF at all but with a first glance it looks like a glorified cardgame. What I meant to say was that I can't imagine it would give much variety from the other cardgame games out there already. It's like playing multiple Memory games with different graphics or images or something...

I added the "real thing" to make my point because at least with the real thing every night is different due to the booze and stories you and your friends have to tell. In other words, playing actual cards 9 out of 10 times isn't about playing cards. It's a conduit for socializing, if you will.

You'd think you can only have so many PC cardgames until it gets overly redundant. You'd think..

Bingo! Watched some guys do a let's play, and by the end of the second round, thought "Is that it????".

I'll say this though, there's an offline play with bots (and coop with bots filling in) so I'll buy the GOTY version in a couple of years once all the DLC is included. Just don't see the point right now.

Exactly. Once it's all in one package, down to $20, I'll check it out...


There's alot of "exactly!"s there for someone who, naturally, hasn't played it yet

Bought Hand of Fate (not on the list.. yet) on Friday. Great game. Combat isn't much, but the rest of the game is really great.

Yeah I saw TotalBiscuit's review of Hand of Fate and it looks good, especially if they add more DLC down the line to be able to dual wield, etc. I can wait to pick it up in a sale though.

The Evolve guys should really look long and hard at their DLC fuckup. The game was riding the clouds pre-release. PR was doing a good job. Then the DLC announcement arrived with all of its bravado, and the reputation came down like a fat kid trippin'.

It's a shame.
The game is actually real fun.

This comment makes no sense at all. Nobody knew the game would go F2P. There are only two kinds of people who will be riding that tiger mount:

1. People who are enjoying ESO since launch or earlier;
2. People who forgot to cancel their subscription.

That is all. There is no 3rd group that "continued paying the monthly fee with the hopes the game would go F2P someday and they'd get a loyalty reward.".

So a certain game reaches only 13fps on an unreleased GPU with an 8core CPU on DX11... and 120fps on DX12?

It might be -- it just might be! -- that said game is programmed specifically for DX12? It's a dead fucking giveaway. In other words, the statement means absolutely nothing.

I'm not saying DX12 won't be able to live up to its promises. I'm saying this vague statement means no fuck at all.

I think it is always best to wait an not preorder. Are the preorder incentives really that great?

Most incentives destroy the balance developers put incredibly much time and money in to get right. The incentives only keep me further from preordering, personally.

The best example was the Dragon Armor in DA:O. I was dumb enough to preorder that game. My tank wore that one armor the entirety of the game once I met the strength requirements. Horrible experience.

I don't think Max Payne makes for a good comparison with GTA. These are two vastly different games, of different scopes and with different processes running in the background. For example I don't think Max Payne needs to manage the driving AI routines of an entire virtual city.

Most games don't need to manage that and I believe it's beside the point. The fact is that Max Payne 3 was well optimized, which still needs able programmers to do so even if the game doesn't need to manage the driving AI routines of an entire virtual city. So if they were willing to put the time and effort into optimizing one game perfectly for the PC, chances are high they've done the same with GTAV.
