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.

News Comments > Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Trailer
3. Re: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Trailer Sep 11, 2014, 02:51 Quinn
 
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.

Lichdom: Battlemage is kinda repetitive if you ask me.

its basically an old school doom type game

Doom had speed and weapons you didn't get bored of after hours of play. Kinda sad you compare that game to an old school game.


Doom had no story and no ability to craft your own spells. I'd compare it more to Hexen or Heretic. Neither of which had any kind of spell crafting. I'm not finding it boring at all. Just misunderstood by some people who don't want to put any effort into the spell crafting system.

It gave me a real Might & Magic feel. You know, the FPS/RPG game where you could be a mage, warrior or rogue.

What I hate about Lichdom is the crafting system. I don't get it, or don't care enough to get it. It felt like I was writing code, ffs, and ended up with a lobbing fireball that does 3dps for 10 secs. Whoop-dee-doo. I alt-F4ed.

I can't wait. Loved MK9. This one looks even better. Though it likely won't happen, I'd love to see Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade come back, as those were my 2 favorite from MK9.

Really?

Who here has a 4GB GTX760? Mine's a 2GB.

And gaming on 4K (which I don't do, 1920x1080 with a little FXAA or SMAA looks great to me) really needs AT LEAST 3GB. There are released games which use over 4GB in 4K at max settings.

I got one. I would have bought the 2Gb version but they didnt have it on stock and this one was almost the same price so I said what the hell.

I've personally experienced one single MONSTERBEAST of a GPU is better than two lessers. Maybe it's because games still aren't properly programmed for SLI, but this is what I've learned.

Dead Rising 2 (and presumably 1 too) was the game where you had to kill zombies in a city mall and gradually gained and created weapons to more easily kill zombies, yeah? Also, all said weapons break after killing about a 100 zombies?

Yeah, I don't get the excitement about this kind of shite at all. Have fun.

If there's 'fucking stupidity' on both sides, I assume it would also apply to the 'uncomfortable' poster who's mostly sitting on the fence...

Sure, I've been known to occassionally be stupid.

Anyway, I'm actually sorry I wrote that post in that way. It was shitty style, both for retreading already-covered ground and acting as if you're "not in the room". I think we should be better than that with one another in here even when in disagreement, so again, sorry.


Gotta get this off my chest: I'm not sure what I find more annoying to find on the internet -- fucking stupidity or this neverending political correctness. But I can sure as hell say that the latter is giving me, personally, a nasty itch.

Not surprised that the graphics are better. The game is newer. The most interesting news is that the scale ratio is... what, realistic now? Climbing a cathedral would this time actually mean climbing a BIG ASS CATHEDRAL! When I was back in Italy this summer, looking at the huge cathedrals and majestic landscapes, it again came to me how horribly unrealistic the scale is in games (not just AC, also Skyrim and honestly any other game I can think of).

If they claim the scale ratio of this game is (near)realistic... well, that sounds interesting and I hope future games take an example.

Sad to see how this interesting topic got entirely fucked up by some personal vendetta against Beamer. Personally I don't give a shit whether he's a lawyer or not, or claims to be one or not. This is the internet. All of you are a faceless bunch of text, to me, which is alright.

Beamer, I can't disagree with anything you just said. I know she targets games because that's what she cares about. However, is she a hypocrite who only cares about less naked women in games, or would she like to see the core of the issue solved? I wasn't deflecting the issue to global warming or something. Her issue is how women (or their image) are treated in the media, not just games. She's complaining about people calling female Shepard "FemShep". She's complaining about some Mario Brothers evil boss woman to wear lipstick instead of some other visual that would define her character. In the meantime, there's tight asses dancing on cars under a soapy shower and completely -- completely! -- naked women dancing in music videos. There's a big fucking contrast between the latter examples and the first examples. So big that, indeed, the first examples aren't worth the noise this woman (or.. cockless narrator, so not to offend?) is making compared to the big, indoctrinating monsterbeasts that's shit like MTV.

Edit/Add: And I repeat, if she does want to target the relatively innocent (in this light) gaming industry, use examples like how right about every woman in GTA is either (half)naked or a hooker and stay the bleep away from shit like "omg they said FemShep!".

GTA is so derivative of film and pop culture generally though. It's a MTV music video/hip hop culture/martin scorcese gangster film/scarface on steriods. Much of the misogyny in it originates elsewhere.

The last few GTA titles appeal is massive, way outside of core gamer culture. It has incredible mass market appeal. You could look at GTA as something that reflects society generally albeit pumped up on steroids.

Game developers aren't a bunch of sickos coming up with awful ideas in isolation. They reflect tastes generally.


I agree with both you and RedMask on this to some extent. Yes, the misogyny in it originates elsewhere -- videogames are not the root of the problem. Again, this is why I think Sarkaasian gets all this hate. She's overanalyzing and nitpicking computergames, while computergames are but a small part of the problem. And things like people calling female Shepard "FemShep" instead of "Shepard, without the penis" or a Supermario diva definitely aren't worth the energy. Go put that energy in the more immediate issues, like skanks rubbing their cunts on black guys' cars in music videos available to watch 24/7 for our 8 year-old children, or MTV portraying women as dumb, slutty moneywhores and calling it "reality TV".

Yeah, well, it's developers like Rockstar that do "deserve" a militant-feminist beating. Their approach and/or view on women seems to be that of a 16 year-old, with a PS controller in his left hand and his penis in his right. In fact, it's the entire image of Rockstar for me. It's kind of a paradox that their games are so extremely solid nonetheless.

No they don't deserve anything. *snip*

I know. It's why I wrote deserve in quotations.

It's interesting. I just finished Crysis 2. Only one female character, but a particularly strong female character. Well, not that any characters in that game are particularly strong.

And I'm in Max Payne 3 now. Most of the females are basically sex workers or stupid party girls you need to rescue. But it's in Brazil, playing to the noir aspect. Still, that part feels more Rockstar and less Max Payne. Unless a female pops out of the woodwork soon, I don't really have a sense for how far into the game I am.
