Off-topic since blue didn't react on the earlier e-mail..

Blue: Why do I almost always have to look on other websites for news about Lords of the Fallen? There was another gameplay vid released a few days back.

Digital games run out of stock?

Hmm, they don't do they? But why, then, would one pre-order? Confused

We know. You don't seem to play games at all. :-)

As for this First Person thing... they have to do it right. Most devs only put lukewarm effort into this and the FOV of the 1st Person Mode will be so narrow the screen damn near implodes.

Can't get a proper impression of the game. While I love Divinity, what it lacks for me is immersion -- the pull into the game and story. I'm still sitting at my desk. Somehow it seems only the big guys manage to add that thing that creates immersion -- the slick cutscenes; the mystery and plot-twists.

Still haven't seen it in a kickstarter. Does this game have it..? Can't tell by the footage I've been seeing.

This game is gonna be crap. Therefore, DLC will also be crap. Case closed.

More hope for this one than The Evil Within. There can be so many enthousiastic previews, if the gameplay vids I'm seeing are crap... that's all I need to know.

As good as this looks, going by the history of Alien(s) games, you'd be wise to wait for reviews.

True. Same goes for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and the bad rep LOTR games have. Still, like Middle-earth, the gameplay footage I've seen looks very promising so I'm being optimistic. Never optimistic enough to pre-order, though. There's never a good reason to pre-order a game anyway. It's not like they could get out of stock. People who pre-order should really look in the mirror and ask themselves -- out loud! -- "...why?".

As for DLC / Season Passes... it's not necessarily a bad thing imo. As long as the budget for DLC is SEPERATE from the base game's budget and the base game's budget isn't negatively influenced by it in any way... well, the more content the better. The question is if this is the case. This I don't know :\

There's allot of previews praising this game. The problem is... every footage I've seen from this game looks like fucking shite. No fucking way I'm going to preorder a game like this.

I found the one quests where you murder turtles for medicinal value to be offensive. Even a Korean game should not do that in Korea considering the senseless slaughter of animals around the world that causes so many animal populations to disappear when a sugar pill would probably be just as effective.

Seriously?

It's a fricking game... You're killing pixels, nothing more, nothing less. Much like playing Hitman, murdering a bunch of people has no actual implications for RL...

Jeebus, I really hope you didn't play AC:Black Flag or Far Cry 3. The amount of rare/endangered species you slaughtered in those games to make wallets and holsters etc were epic...

The difference is that turtles are endangered, humans aren't. Every animal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but humans do not. They move to an area and they multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way they can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. They're a plague and you are the cure.

One would be a fool to disagree with this. Watch the new Cosmos documentary, (one of) the last episodes clearly portray how we are destroying the planet. We just don't give a solid fuck because we won't suffer the consequences of our actions in our lifetime, yet we benefit from profits made. It's disgusting, really. What's even worse is that it's kind of a taboo to complain about it. This because we're all cowed into believing it's not that bad or big a deal.

Again, go watch Cosmos or read up on climate change etc.

As for ArcheAge.... couldn't care less about this MMO xD

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
