No question, this is going to be an immensely fun game, can't wait for it, but... has this anything in common story- or character-wise with FarCry (1)?

They are just using the name to get attraction as it seems.

No, it has nothing to do with Far Cry 1. Once FC2 was in development, they said they felt that the "Far" Cry referred to the setting, rather than the story/protagonists.

So whenever they make an open world game (I know the first FC wasn't really open world) in an exotic setting, they basically feel it deserves the name Far Cry.

I don't really care what they call it, it looks effing awesome.

If this guy hadn't blacklisted me, he wouldn't keep repeating the same stuff I basically said earlier. Fyi. It looks really dumb sometimes.

I was enjoying D:OS, but in the middle of the story another new game got my attention (Risen 3). I never really felt like getting back into D:OS after I finished Risen 3. :\ Risen 3, however, was fucking awesome and I continue to flirt with the idea of replaying it and joining another faction.

In retrospect, I think D:OS' blessing was the good (RPG) games draught this summer was suffering. It eventually really isn't that good...

Hmm, not just for attraction. They basically use the exact same formula for all games (moreso since Farcry 2 really). None have something in common with eachother apart from the formula. I also noticed that 2 characters who play a similar role in Farcry 2 and 3 share the same voice-actor. I'm willing to bet the same voice-actor comes back in Farcry 4 for a similar character -- a character that brings the protagonist order in his freeroaming chaos, gives him main quests and is, like the protagonist, a foreigner to the land.

According to the blurb above, there probably won't be any reward for poachin' elephants.

The elephants even worked their way into the development team’s heart. “We don’t want to reward killing elephants,” Creative Director Alex Hutchinson points out. “Elephants are the only animal in the game you don’t get anything for killing.”

Hrm, it does say that directly above the video, my bad.

That's good, although I still suspect if you ride them around blowing up enemy bases with them, they will eventually succumb to enemy damage.

It doesn't say they're unkillable, just that you're not being rewarded for their deaths.

I've got double feelings about this. I know of the illegal horrors that are being committed for their tusks in real life, and it indeed would be unethical to be able to kill them for their tusks or whatever ingame. However, same goes for tigers and basically any other wildlife like that. We can go even further, and say being rewarded for killing humans ingame is unethical. We don't want that kind of shit to bleed into our games, of course.

But then, maybe it's not an ethical reason why they don't reward you for killing elephants. What reason it is then, I don't know..

Yes, I played Missing Link. The only changes I'm aware of would be the incorporation of that into the game (some suspension of disbelief may be required), the additional options to the boss fights, and the commentary. That's what made it hard to justify splashing out for it.

Hmm I owned the original HR + ML which lowered the DC price for me already, and during... was it X-mas sale? I bought the DC for 1,50 euros. That was certainly worth the incorporation of the DLC, improved boss fights adn commentary. Won't this deal work in a similar fashion? For 5 euros, I'd say put that money into helping to convince yourself to buy one of the awesome upcoming games. ^^

Thanks, Quinn. It's the hands-on feedback I need. I was going by the top reviews on the steam page and a link from there to an eidos thread.

I've played the original HR through a few times. My idea was another playthrough with DC for curiosity's sake. Like a final blowout, grand finale, blaze of glory thing. So that's why it's important for me to be sure that it'll be an upgrade and not a downgrade.

I surely didn't experience it as one! What I really enjoyed was the developers commentary. It gives you a really interesting perspective on why they decided to do certain things, what they left out and why, what they really wanted to do but why they couldn't, etc.

What did you make of the boss fights?

They are certainly better, though still not the reason you play Deus Ex For example, the first bossfight gives you way more ways to approach the battle. There's a whole second level above where the boss roams where you can crawl through vents, enable turrets etc. The boss' AI hasn't changed, though. The battle is a bit more interesting, but still crap in a nutshell. These are the flavours of the improvements you should expect in the bossfights.

Have you played Missing Link yet? That's reason enough to grab it if you haven't.

I was thinking of getting Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut, but the reviews for it suggest that it was based on an earlier build, therefore has bugs, graphical glitches, fps drops, etc. and that it's not been fixed. If I'm wrong, please leave a message after the beep.

Beep.

I'm not sure they ever fixed all the issues with it. The steam forums might know...or they might talk out their asses. It's a 50/50 shot there.

Once I heard they removed the yellow haze, I kind of lost interest. That was part of the art style that gave it such a distinctive look, originally...


Played the original HR and the Director's Cut. The Director's Cut ran a little more solid in every way, and it certainly didn't play or look worse than the patched original.

So if you ask me, HR-DC is a must-have. An absolute NO-BRAINER if you haven't even played the original HR yet!

I am not a LOTR fan... I mean, I like the movies... But I don't go around gobbling up everything with their name.

Plus, for the most part, just about any game made from movie/book IP is crap...

But I looked into some gameplay yesterday for Shadow of Mordor, and it looks fun... Yes, the combat looks like batman... Climbing shit looks like AC, which is a good thing...

But the way they're doing the advancement, both the rune system, and the Sauron Army part, looks great (mostly the latter). Combine some subterfuge, with some sabotage, some stealth kills, and some direct free for all combat, and I like what I'm seeing.

So I pre-ordered from GMG for 25% off : )

One of the vids that helped is here.

That's a great vid. Thanks!

I wasn't hyped for this game until a few days earlier, when Jerykk posted a link to a similar vid. Earlier I thought this was AC in Middle-earth, but it's the climbing and deaths-from-above that's AC, and the combat is more like Batman's Arkham series.

I must say that no matter what footage I see, it ALL looks the same. I hope this is because they decided only to show one particular area to the press. I'm also sad about the HUD. The icons above enemies drop the immersion level like a sack of puppies.

I am psyched about the game. But I will not pre-order it. I have to know if the PC release is solid first, and it won't suffer from any of the following port-symptoms:

1. Bad performance like limited FPS;
2. Bad visuals like low-res textures;
3. Horrible controls like screwed up mouse sensitivity.

Once I tried the game and know it's solid, I'll buy it

2 months is too long for Dragon Age 3. Hell, 16 days is too long for Middle-earth. The Binding of Isaac is a fun little game to kill your time while the wait for more complex games is too long.

Wew seriously, you can name any of the tens of awesome games that come out these last few months of 2014, but waiting for THE BINDING OF ISAAC is too long!? I'm stunned, I tell you. Stunned!

*looking at what I just wrote* Wtf, it's my wife's period. Looks like I'm having one as well. Confused

They've already streamed quite a bit of footage. Probably more than an hour's worth.

Here's 20 minutes worth of open-world stuff

Ah, thanks for that link! I think it was last week last I searched youtube for a proper gameplay vid and this one didn't pop up.

This video was very telling, finally. It didn't only show the open-worldness of the game well, but also the combat. The way the player rolls away from enemies, jumps over them, and targets single enemies to build up damage per hit... it suddenly no longer reminded me of the horrible Assassins Creed combat, but the awesome Batman (Arkham series) combat! The differences between those 2 combat systems may seem minor, but somehow do make all the difference.

i think the open world aspect is probably more like just cause 2 or that old mercenaries game on consoles, instead of AC

You mean a nice looking environment with no meaningful content to speak of, littered with enemies, some enemy camps here and there with dynamically generated enemy elites? I'm pretty sure it's exactly that. Hell you could even compare it with the openworldness of Far Cry, I guess.

i was playing this at a press event today and got to a point when it got too scary for me to keep playing...

Hey Fantaz, this is the shit that I like to hear. I just got twice as excited as I was for this game Just for calibration... are you a gamer that also found (the first) FEAR scary, or was it (the first) Amnesia that got to you? I found FEAR awesome but laughable scary-wise. Amnesia made me punch the ESC(pause) button every now and then to get my heartbeat back to a more healthy level.

2,5 weeks before release and still I haven't got a single idea of how open-world this really is. I'm pretty certain that the gameplay will have Assassins Creed all over it, though, and the same goes for the "open-world" idea. The website and other trailers already talk about the protagonist's 3 weapons in great detail, so we'll know that in this "open-world" we won't stumble upon chests with gear in it, and it'll mostly just feature some random side-quests and -- mostly so! -- dumb achievement challenges.

This is one of those games I'd NEVER pre-order or buy on day one. I'll watch the first hour of the game in a walkthrough video. That'll give a good impression.

I'm choosing between Alien Isolation and Evil Within. Both come out within a week of each other, although I may just break down and pre order both. Greenman offers 25% off coupons all the time.

In the end I think I'll get Evil Within first, mostly because of the pedigree of Shinji and also because it has more "game" elements to it. It looks like a mixture of RE4 and RE remake on idTech5.

I just think Evil Within will be more fun to play as a survival horror game than the hide and seek gameplay of Alien Isolation.

When I watched a gameplay trailer of Evil Within and saw how he was picking up glowing health-jars like it's a fucking arcade game, plus how he tried to distract an enemy that was feasting on a corpse by throwing a bottle which had ZERO effect... a gut feeling told me that this game will suck. Mark my words: It'll suck.

Haven't looked into Alien Isolation enough to recommend you to go for that one instead.
