I'm all for this. Fuck the publishers out there that use regional pricing for their own benefit and then expect the rest of us to bend over and take it sans lube.


I am in agreement with Cutter (for once) here. Im also sick of whiny fanobois pointing the finger of blame automatically at GMG even when they are putting the customer first.

Hey fanholes! Listen up! CD Project is NOT YOUR FRIEND, no matter how much you might think they are, they are a business and this 'request' by CD project to ignore GMG's discounts is a despicable business decision. Buy the game wherever it is cheapest, it is in your OWN interest.

But... I like CD Project, because they make awesome games, and I want them to continue making awesome games. Regional pricing exists because for me, for the price of one cappuccino in Australia I can have 4 in my country. It would be unfair if I would have to pay 4 times the price for a game, or citizens of Australia 4 times less.

Personally, I buy nearly all my games at G2A. It, however, doesn't make me a hypocrite because at least I can admit it's "unfair" for the devs. Yes, even if it's a business.

Text neck comes from looking down at your phone, unless you plan on looking at your VR feet all day long I can't see how the two would be related.

Some insecure people might not be looking at their VR feet... Tiny

A lot of people will end up with VR paperweights before this fad passes. That'll take a while however as there's too much money behind this movement at current. I have no doubt that VR will succeed one day, just not today. I still see this being of far more use in practical applications, AR in particular.

I have to agree. Similar to how the whole 3D television/monitor hype train that has slowly died off. Now it's curved TVs.

BUUUTTTT, until I try it, who really knows? /Shrug



That's basically what I was getting at. There will be the big push, people wanting to not miss the hype train, then finding its a bust for numerous reasons and it will slowly die out again. It'll take several years just like 3D did again, but it'll happen.

I don't think so. Not VR. VR will not die. It'll get better, and better, and better. New diseases will develop, both mentally and physicall; movies will once again be inspired by something that is now real and no longer science fiction; grand debates will sprout from the masses about VR and the implications it brings; etc; etc; etc.

The Oculus Rift will be a silly, tiny first step -- but VR will definitely not die. Actually, it will develop to a point where when girls see a strong, fit guy walk down the street, they'll say "Hey look, a gamer!". We'll probably all be psychopaths, too.

Meh. Still a gimmick. Great for racing games/flying sims/rollercoaster tech demos, but I'll keep waiting for holodeck/brain implants.

This.

Pretty much a niche market, IMO. Like 3D TV, but a little bigger.

I love gaming, but I have zero interest strapping something to my skull.

/shrug

But you HAVE interest in putting something IN your skull. ...

I'm still not sure how this will work, sitting behind a desk. The Oculus Rift doesn't have gloves, does it? Either way, I'm sure you'd still need your keyboard. So tell me how that works. I'm playing an FPS, an enemy is behind me. I turn around with the Oculus Rift but have to leave my ability to actually shoot behind on my desk. Seriously, tell me how this works?

I feel like it's a rhetoric question, which is why I too believe it's but a gimmick still.

Nope you got it all wrong. The 'view' with the Oculus is on a seperate axis from your mouse/controller. So you can look one way, and shoot another. Just like real life...

Ideally its not really suited for FPS shooters just yet, apparently since very few (if any) support the kind of behaviour I described above. Native support is going to be found in sims and driving games (since most of them have supported TrackIR for years), but it will come. If you build it, they will come...

Of course they will come, at some point. Just not yet and I think not before 2018 or -19 at the earliest.

As for my example with an enemy being behind me... Your answer didn't really make sense. I know it's on a seperate axis, and that doesn't fix it. I have to look behind me, 160 degrees. I'm not an owl so I can't physically do that without letting go of my ability to shoot (the keyboard and/or mouse). Anyway, of course I know the answer to my own question.. which is turning around just isn't an option if you want to be able to shoot, so you'll have your keyboard and/or mouse to actually turn your ingame body.. but I think it defeats the purpose of VR. At least it does to me.

It's not that I don't applaud the Oculus Rift. It's the first step to actual VR. But at the same time I also laugh at the ridiculousness of this "first step" because, fuck me, I've been playing with these "oculus rift" things in arcade halls for 5 dollars a match 20 years ago.

10. Batman: Arkham Tanks May 6, 2015, 09:01 Quinn
 
I'm actually not looking forward to Arkham Knight AT ALL, anymore. PR is focusing too much on those goddamn tanks. Seriously, once I saw the Arkham Knight with an ARMY OF TANKS behind him in that last trailer.. the anticipation for this game plummeted.

I would be lying if I said I'm not gonna buy this game day one. I am. I'm like that, because I LOVE the Arkham series (Origins included!). Are my hopes high? Not anymore.

I love the Arkham series because Batman feels so tank'ish. Never once did I actually ask for fucking tanks, though. Did anyone?

I feel like the only gamer in the world with this opinion right now but fuck it: I think the GTAV singleplayer campaign was just crap. There was no sense of danger or purpose, just 3 mindless dudes doing mindless shit. The only thing that made Trevor stand out was him being honest about it.

As for GTA Online.. Well, the Heists are awesome although horribly unforgiving if you try them with any crew other than a group of voice chatty friends. Freeroaming feels useless because the game clearly doesn't want you to go on a killing spree but those that do are exploiting the Passive Mode so they can only gank you on their terms.

Great graphics. Great gameplay. Best reviewed game ever? Hype kills reason.

Who would be the target audience for this? I appreciate that they want to keep the IP alive, but the game was absolute garbage on every level. No amount of hype could possibly get them the kind of return necessary to cover the development cost of a sequel.

Seriously? Are you trolling? How can so many of you be so out of touch with reality? Seriously, have you ever played a game before?

Ther's more than 1 CJ_Parker, ItBurn. Some people have never played a game yet just love to bitch about it, sometimes spurred on by negative comments they've read from gamers who have played the game.

Take a deep breath. Let it go.

Yes, I suppose it did sound condescending. It wasn't my intent.

Of course it was as your followup clearly demonstrates. You don't really address your own failings in recognizing that the game actually has methods of making it more difficult either. The developer should've included difficulty levels but if you play games with all of the hand holding toggles on then no one is going to take complaints about difficulty seriously.

The guy Brumbek is right, simple as that. I would disagree with his demeanor when talking about any other game except this one. Again: NEMESIS SYSTEM! If you want that system to work, the player needs to die. A lot. Period. Fact. If the player doesn't die, the Nemesis system is a waste.

I maybe died twice in the game, and that wasn't because of said "OMG, immunitiez!" because I could easily hold off 50 orcs while beating the solid fuck out of the immune orc until he finally gave. The times I died was when the game surprised me with 4 or 5 champions at once.

So, yeah.. for very pro players this game cannot release its full potential, because the player won't die enough. Again, that's a fact. In my opinion, this game needs to release its full potential otherwise you're just running around in an empty world killing Uruks.

If that's too condescending for you, grow a pair.

The city in WD wasn't alive enough. Apart from the quests and few dumb minigames.. the city itself was but a dead shell. The city did look good and interesting, though. Somehow I think the city looked better than GTAV's, which has a city that actually really disappoints me although there is allot of cool shit to do and see.

It's just a remake of the original Postal. Just way better graphics and all. Nobody gave a shit about Postal regarding lobbing molotov cocktails into crowds so why give a shit now? The whole conversation has become so. fucking. boring.

There's really just 2 types of people here.

The first: "Artificial life matters! Stop killing NPCs!"
The second: "Artificial life doesn't matter. Kill them all!"

The first should put their energy in criticizing things that hurt real people, like religion.
The second are rational, and I want to drink a beer with them.


This game looks good and fun. I hope I can herd people into a garage, lob a molotov in there and barricade it. <3

It has nothing to do with skill, ...

If there's one game where this just isn't true, it's absolutely this one. That's because of the NEMESIS system, which is clearly the USP of this game. The Nemesis system only really flourishes if you, the player, dies. You get killed by an orc, that orc "levels up" and becomes your "nemesis". If the player does NOT die, there's no nemesis for him running around to hunt and mindfuck into your little puppet.

"It has nothing to do with skill" applies to every game out there, just not to this one.

Most overhyped game of 2014 for me. Felt totally flat and repetitive. Thought I would be getting the best of batman mixed with the best of assassin's creed in a world I like. But I just found it really boring with no motivation to keep playing.

The main quest is actually pretty good, and the competition system between leaders is neat. But I agree with the rest of your comment, it was a meh game...kinda wish I'd picked it up on sale instead of a few weeks after release.

I agree with both of you entirely. The Nemesis system failed horribly for me because I NEVER FUCKING DIED! This was one game you actually can be "too good" at.

Oh, and the open world was a joke.. Filled with groups of orcs that spawned as soon as you turned your camera away and a few collectibles and no visual context other than empty ruins.

Assume their system just notices modified files and raises a flag. A FoV tweak on a game with a 3rd person view seems a bit funny. 3rd person will always see more than a modified FoV in first.

The game has a useless 1st person mode which is made useful and fun with a FOV mod. It's not cheating. It's fixing something that's broken.
