Enjoying the hell out of WD atm. Those player invasions are so unbelievably awesome I could write books about it! I got invaded by a tailer, so I ran up a bridge and shot at te pedestrians feet. They all started running like mad.
Except for one, who got the clue a second later.
I sniped a hole in his head.

Awesome!

As for GTA 5... I can't wait! I saw some footage on my sister's PS3 and it's definitely better that WD in many ways. Just not in all ways.

How do people fall for that?

It's called stupidity. Plain old stupidity. Sad but true.

What a stupid comment.

Ppl buy it first because they don't want to wait a year. People buy it again because they can finally play it on their favorite platform. It doesnt take that much effort to understand.

This is why the fee-moaning on MMO's just don't make sense to me. If you like the MMO, you'll put 30+ hours a month in it at least, which is more than the avarage 20 hours you put in another game. Difference is you pay only $13,- for the fee and $45,- for the 20 hours game.

The issue isn't so much about quantity but quality. Sure, MMOs technically offer hundreds (perhaps thousands) of hours of gameplay but how much of that gameplay is actually enjoyable? Take away the grinding, the fetch quests, the FedEx quests, the tedious traveling, the waits for PvP matches, the waits for mobs to respawn so you can farm specific items, etc, and how many hours of fun do you actually get?

Hmm don't really get this. If it's bot enjoyable, one wouldn't be putting said hours into it in the first place. Yes, MMO's lack the quality of an SP game but people like it enough to put hours of their life into it. If you pay the fee and monthly still play, it's worth it by default. If you don't play yet pay the fee, you're stupid by default. If you don't play and don't pay the fee, then there's no reason to moan about it. If you want to play but don't want to pay the fee, then that's pirate mentality.

Should I buy Wolf? Wow it might be good!!!! I am ready for a good game!!!

Are FPS games your thing? Then perhaps so!

I say perhaps, because an important factor for me that I base a game's worth on is longevity. I finished Wolf in somewhere between 8 and 12 hours. The fame was absolutely great fun, but it's $45,- (ok 27,- for me) which still makes me shudder in retrospect.

This is why the fee-moaning on MMO's just don't make sense to me. If you like the MMO, you'll put 30+ hours a month in it at least, which is more than the avarage 20 hours you put in another game. Difference is you pay only $13,- for the fee and $45,- for the 20 hours game.

But, anyway! If you're simply about quality, buy Wolf! And don't get me wrong, the game isn't really short by any standards except Doom's.

Keep Wolf in the top 10! Best game I've played this year, so far.
I want to play it so bad but $60 is a bit steep for me right now :/

Looking good.

Screenshot 1 Screenshot 2 Screenshot 3

What's up with those random looking polys around the edge of the UI (especially the stuff covering the Thrust Output)? The background planet looks really nice but I honestly can't tell if those shapes are supposed to be hull or wreckage.

SS3 looks kind of like what happens when you put a camera inside a 3d object and look outward. Again, background looks great, foreground... I'm at a loss, maybe it's due to the lack of motion.

It's a complete clusterfuck in the visuals of course. Last I've seen graphics go crazy like that -- like the textures have no clue where to latch on so instead go nuts -- was with my Voodoo 3dfx card.

Saw a 9GAG video of Aiden executing people who had the weirdest of professions, beliefs or way of life.

He shot a scientologist; a woman who still lived in parents' basement; an anti-violence activist; a muslim; etc.

Freaking hilarious. The game actually looked like fun...

. They say this is not only a Ubisoft record, but it also makes Watch Dogs the bestselling new IP in history based on NPD and GFK data and internal estimates as of June 3, 2014.

BS

Peak players on Steam is only 25k. Well below SEVERAL games. There is no way this set any records other than their own.

Sorry but I can't stop wondering with every single comment you write: are you somewhere between 12 and 15? Ffs man, there's more places out there than Steam. Use your bloody ooze!

Still absolutely loving every single bit out of ESO. I'd almost say that ESO is for the adults and this WoW clone for the kids, and that's alright. ESO is the first MMO that truly values immersion and a rather laid-back type gaming like the rest of the Elders, while this WoW clone values... powerleveling.
Almost.

This or that, I've left the days of WoW ergo its clones behind me. If you share those values, however, enjoy!

Neh that would be a good thing.

What an open-city game needs as a fundamental part is lots of stuff that supports immersion. Pubs; stores; malls; and all kinds of little things. The devil is in the details or a game just feels blegh and you'd rather just play a linear game without the boring hassle between point A and B. That's why you're prolly sucked toward Wolf while playing WD. That, and the awful driving ofc.

Wolf Spoiler:

The ending of Wolf made me sad. I'm hoping the helicopters heard (after credits?) meant something.

Spoiler reply:

The ending made me sad too. Maybe it's Fraulein Crazy who will "save" him to have some proper revenge on him. She'll maybe be the endboss in the DLC :D

Also, I loved Blazcovicz' poetic lines. With the Quintin Tarantino nazis, the protagonist gave the game a serious flavour anyway -- which I liked.

Wolf continues to impress the hell out of me...most fun I've had in a shooter in a long time. Glad it's doing well (and hope Machine Games does another)!


Agreed. Superb FPS! First FPS in a long time that I bought after only 10 minutes of trying it out. While Wolfenstein doesn't suffer from it, the Rage engine is still a sad sad retard child. Textures load if you turn too quickly sometimes; textures look like absolute garbage from up close. Less horrible than it was in Rage because Wolfenstein is quicker paced and the maps are smaller.

Loving the game. Blazcovicz' nightmares are AWESOME and nostalgic!

I agree with most of her assessments, but 2 are simply stupid, the old metroid one of course and the "mystical pregnancy" argument.

Common, what's wrong with a "mystical pregnancy" plot twist? All of those quoted in her articles served the narrative:

"7. The Mystical Pregnancy

A female character is impregnated by supernatural reproductive technology. Examples: Skully in The X-files, Starbuck in Battlestar Galactica, Deanna Troy from Star Trek, the Next Generation (who is impregnated by a ball of space energy)."

She's pushing a bit too far and sometimes seeing sexism where there isn't IMHO.

Holy shit, she should start a goddamn campaign against right about every single religion. After all, somehow they all think of the woman's birthcanal as a one-way street.

As for games being sexist.. I agree. My wife has a real gripe with it and I completely understand. For example, can't wait for a Bioware RPG where an LI is a tad more chubby instead of the big-tits-slim-hips models.

I wouldn't say mediocre at all.

i would.. and i did

if you love it, awesome - good for you

but i expect a hell of a lot more from ULTRA!! graphics settings that cripple hardware in this way

Yeah, sorry man. Dont know what to tell you. The game looks fantastic for me. Short of Crysis 3, which isn't a massive open world game with tons of Ai running around, I'm not sure anything looks better. There's a few that look as good, but better? Can you give us an example to back up your point instead of just raving "its junk" and leaving.

Its definitely sure as hell better than DS2, which bragged about its ultra PC graphics, which most definitely did not live up to the hype.

This doesn't look remotely as good as Crysis 3. I don't fault WD for it because it's open-world and Crysis 3 isn't, but I do fault you for talking such bullshit about something we could be objective about. No, it doesn't look as good as Crysis 3 by a long shot and to claim otherwise is putting you in the biased fanboy category.

The first thing that hit me in the face like a sack of nails were the mediocre open-world graphics. During the tutorial mission they looked just OK, but when I got outside I checked twice if I INDEED had everything on Ultra and why the hell the game ran like shit, relatively compared to the visuals.

Don't touch Ultra textures, people, it looks just as crap as High textures yet with High the game runs three times better.

I did say Crysis 3 looked better. You quoted me where I did. I'm not arguing that. I'm saying its a fair shot better than mediocre. Ultra definitely looks sharper than High. I will disagree with u there.

Of course those E3 2012 vids are waaaaaaaay better than the end product. Betcha those were all prerendered.

I had misread your comment somehow. Must be a foreigner thing that got in the way, sorry about that!

Still, you're being overly optimistic about the graphics. To me, Far Cry 3 had me staring at the screen for minutes, drooling at the great vistas before me. That's the first obvious one, but while I have difficulty at this late hour to come up with another jaw-dropping title, I do know WD isn't one of them. It's just so... bland.

Also, in an earlier comment I complaint about all those huge popups in the screen all the time which drove me nuts. Realized after starting the game up again that that crazy shit disappears once you "holster" your smartphone. Been a much more pleasant gaming experience after that realization, lol.

Textures: High
AA: Temporal SMAA or TXAAx2 (latter looks better but decreases the performance a tad)
The rest: Ultra

Runs smooth as butter on my single GTX 680. Ultra Textures seem to be the culprit mostly.

PS: The game still looks bland and stale. Except for Aiden. He graphically stands out.

Not even mentioning the biggest gripe, driving itself?

It's so fucking hilarious. A car doesn't "ease" into rolling. It's just *BAM!* you fly forward and the screen immediately starts to blur. You can't possibly drive around the neighborhood, taking it easy. You either drive Formula 1 style or tap the W button which will feel like you're in second gear without pressing the gas-paddle right before the car shuts off.

Driving is just.. well, fucking horrible.
