News Comments > Unity 5 Released
5. Re: Unity 5 Released Mar 3, 2015, 14:11 DangerDog
 
Google's plunked down a huge wad of cash to support "Magic Leap" and supposedly the platform of choice for their augmented reality device is Unity. Maybe Google should buy up Unity and then release it for free-ish like UDK.

Then Microsoft can buy up CryEngine and release it for free, yeah that's a stretch but I would think Google would be able to take over Unity and keep the cogs in the machine from grinding to a halt.

The DLC for this game was a train wreck.

They make these sound like you're getting extra story mode DLC but you'r not.

Even if they completely recycled the space station and only allowed you to play through the game part way from the perspective of different characters it would have been better than these extremely short "survivor mode" map packs.

Return of the shareware model of selling games? Want to unlock the rest of the game then pay for the content.

I think you could release a game for free, let everyone torrent it or whatever and if it's a multiplayer game just charge a nominal fee for things like stat tracking and rank progression. If you don't pay you can still play but you don't get the stat tracking.

$120 for the deluxe version of the game and premium.

I guess you need to rob a bank to be able to play Battlefield now.

*talent not included

nor the thousands of hours you'll need to dedicate to learning how to actually make something with it.

at least people won't need to hunt down a pre-compiled virus laden version of Unreal anymore.

I don't know how they could possibly cover the lawsuits from people being injured while walking around with a headset like this on, if it's just some sort of augmented reality gimmick then I'll take a pass in the whole thing.

I can't imagine there are too many people who want to play games standing up either, the whole kinect thing was mostly a failure because of that.

This is like something from the late 90's graphics wise. Did Derek Smart have something to do with this project?

Is it just me or do the textures in this game look like crap compared to BF4 proper?

i think that the last beta had locked graphical options, just like the BF3 beta (and i think BF4 beta?). everything was locked to medium settings. I wasn't terribly impressed visually with the beta, hoping that retail will fix that.

also, are these bonus gun only available for deluxe edition AND pre-order? or can i just buy the deluxe edition 3 months later when it's $10?

Unknown, they've only commented on twitter that the deluxe edition weapons are "exclusive" but mind you nowhere does it say exclusive on Origin or any other site you can buy the Deluxe version. The only thing that's exclusive is the BF Veterans offer (bonus XP and a custom patch).

On the PC anyway I haven't seen the Deluxe edition anywhere but Origin, everyone else just sells the standard edition.

Call me cynical, but I don't see anything good from this.

I'll just be charitable and assume you don't know much about net neutrality, Title II common carrier classification, or what the FCC actually voted on today.

It's really quite concerning that there is a segment of the population that will reflexively take the side of organizations as despicable as Comcast, rather than even consider the possibility that, on occasion, there is a need for government to curtail, in some limited fashion, the excessive market power of anti-competitive incumbent corporations for the sake of the public good.

It's all the unknown shit that's in this act that has most people concerned. The ISP's will still find a way to screw over customers, nothing has been done to stop them from implementing tiered bandwidth cap pricing. They also struck down the part that would have made it so current cable providers would need to "share the road" and give competitors access to the infrastructure.

It's for the dude bro's out there, like this guy, Hardline Drifting on his youtube channel.

If you can't make it pass the first 30 seconds, you're not EA's target audience.

BRO, SICK DRIFT BRO!

(Not really. Holy shit are those driving 'physics' terrible. They may genuinely be worse than Just Cause 2.)

It fits the Battlefield gameplay, realistic driving physics wouldn't work too well when you want to go cross country in a sports car.

I don't have any issues with the ability to spin out using the handbreak, in fact that was one of the welcome changes from the first beta.

yeah, it is more than usable. however i do remember Ritichello or someone saying that the marvel of the frostbite engine, was how they were making all of their studios use it, so you'd have cross-game improvements. ie. a racing game figures out better car handling physics, they can then import that into the next battlefield game. this was the very example used. I never played that Need for Speed made on frostbite, but i'd assume that those cars handled better than battlefield... so i guess that never happened :/

We've seen them re-use animation between games before, Crysis2/3 and BF3 had some identical animations (the power slam was used when coming out of a vent in the roof in the BF SP), and that was cross engine. so i am expecting some vehicle improvements in the future considering they have racing games running on the SAME engine...

all signs point towards Frostbite being a bitch to work with.

I wouldn't expect Need For Speed type handling, first you're dealing with a shooter so adding in sway and lift would make firing from the cars kind of annoying "drive straight asshole!" and there's a lot more going on than a Need For Speed game since you're able to take on other players spawing into your vehicle, vehicle damage and repair (lots of bits break off the car when damaged) and lastly I'm sure the last generation consoles are imposing limitations on design.

Someone asked if they could add the ability to shoot your gun sideways just for fun but the response was that it would consume too much memory to add in all the animations and reload animations to do that.

This one is going to be a tough sell, there's still a lot of play left in BF4 with new content coming for it.

You have to pay the extra $10 idiot tax to get the complete "deluxe" version for $69.99, buying the standard edition means you'll be short a weapon or two depending on where you buy/pre-order it.

I think there's enough content to be a stand alone game, lol it's a BF4 mod lol, but is it going to be a success or failure?

oh and they announced "premium" season pass for it today.

I never played Max Payne 3, did they use their own Rockstar Social network for that games multiplayer too? Did it actually work?

I can't help imagine that all you'll get is a button to connect to online and it'll be 100% matchmaking with no server browser.

Like consoles you can choose where to play, but no server browser.

Entering MP randomly drops you in a server, you can enter servers with friends / crew mates playing in them (You don't see servers, just join friends / crew), or you can start a private game online and have friends/crew join to keep public guys out.

So there is no server browser (Haven't played in a year, maybe it's changed) but you could still organize players a bit.

Thanks, works how I expected it to. No mod support for the online portion I imagine since they'll control the servers, and with no way to properly admin the servers - especially on the PC I'm guessing the online mode will be a complete trainwreck full of cheaters and high-ping players causing all sorts of problems.

They haven't released Heist mode on consoles yet, which was suppose to release before the PC version. I guess this gives them extra time on that too.

Battlefield Hardline just picked up some extra sales on the PC from this delay no doubt. They were scheduled to release a week apart.

Can someone really tell me why they are so worked up over the DLC plan of Evolve since it's really nothing more than cosmetics and post-release additions?

Isn't this what most people WANT from DLC?

It feels like they spent too much time scheming on ways to incorporate DLC into their game and not enough time on producing a sold, fun game to play.

The game may be fun for a select few but it's no where near hitting the mark of a $60 AAA title.
