Finally! I've been holding out for this one for quite a while.

News Comments > MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Released

31. Re: MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Released Dec 11, 2019, 20:23  Midnight 
 
What a mess this game is.

PROS:
- No competing products
- Destroying cities can be fun

CONS:
- Dated visuals
- Lacklustre sound design
- Derivative/cliched story with absolutely terrible writing and flat voice acting
- Little sense of weight to the mechs
- Fights are twitchy and chaotic rather than slow and deliberate
- Every mission feels stupidly easy or unfairly difficult
- Simplistic mech customisation options

I doubt I'll launch it again without some major mods installed.

In case you are like me and just wanted to know what the new mechs are without having to watch the video, they are:

Assassin, Flea, Archer, Rifleman, Phoenix Hawk, Vulcan, Annihilator and
Bullshark.

And no, they aren't using the original "lost mech" designs for the ARcher, Rifleman and Phoenix Hawk (although the Archer is very close to infringing).

The DLC comes alongside a free to all update that adds the Warhammer and Marauder (also using MWO artwork), as well as actual mod support. HBS are actively working with the Roguetech/Modtek teams on this.

News Comments > New Steam Library Beta

Looks okay, but it is not designed for people with slower internet speeds (like me). SteamWebHelper was constantly downloading and ignored my download speed limit, so I've reverted back to non-beta.

I'm hoping this change stays optional at least until something better than ADSL2 is available in my area.

I was on the fence with this one. It would have been a pre-order if not for the EGS deal. Having read these reviews I think I'll wait until the game gets some fixes and expansions.

The Steam release will probably be the best time to jump aboard.

News Comments > Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Gameplay Footage

Who is in charge of this mess? It's like someone who don't even know what Star Wars is, or had a very faint idea, had a checklist of "cool stuff bruh" he wanted in a game and just got'em in, never wondering if it fit the vast already plenty rich lore... Such a lack of creativity to do something new with existing tools, nah, let's just F the lore with new tools instead that have no part of the rich lore.

For someone who says "lore" a lot it feels like you've never really watched the movies.

Hmm as much as I loved Baldur's Gate and its implementation of Vancian magic I think I'd rather have an Original Sin 3. Baldur's Gate is good and I would have loved to have played a Baldur's Gate 3 five or more years ago but nowadays I have much more fun with with the systems from the Original Sin games.

I think that the turn-based combat, spell/environmental interactions and roleplaying flexibility of DOS1&2 would be a perfect match for a modern D&D video game. In fact I'm replaying BG2 right now and just this week found myself thinking "Man, the only studio I'd trust with BG3 would be Larian."

Browsing this store is still ludicrously clunky. No categories, no tags, just a bunch of thumbnails which tell you nothing about what kind of games you're looking at.

I'm actually referencing my *Steam wishlist* to search for titles on the EGS. No matches/discounts found so far.

Ok, good luck with the multiplayer stuff. Let me know when the single-player game is ready so I can surrender my life to it.

Good. Go the fuck out of business. Make room for more CDPRs.

That's not how it works. One less video game publisher doesn't mean everyone else gets a bigger slice of the pie. It just means there's less competition, players have fewer options, and a lot of good, hardworking folk have lost their jobs simply for doing what they were told to do.

Bwahahaha!

While it sucks to be layed off, I can say from personal experience that EA really do take good care of people when this happens.

After mass layoffs at BioWare Austin, EA arranged to have recruiters from studios all across the country come to put on a jobs fair across the road from the studio, exclusively for those of us who were now unemployed. Severance was generous, my relocation back to Australia was fully covered, and when I mentioned my frustration at having to sell my recently purchased car at a loss, EA paid me the difference.

If you need platform exclusive games to make your platform appealing, then your platform is weak and you're hurting consumers by making them use an inferior product to access the games they want to play.

Let us choose.

A very good game, but if you want to turn it into a truly great (albeit buggy) game, check out the RogueTech mod. Adds many more mechs and weapons, and greatly increases the customisation options for your mechs (different engine cores, armour types, sensor suites, melee weapons etc.)

Shows that DLC does pay, bow im not saying that all DLC is bad, some stellaris was good but a lot was bug fixing that should have been free.

The "bug fixing" *is* free. Each DLC release comes with lots of bug fixes, balance changes and even new mechanics which are provided free to all players, with the paid content being an extra layer on top.

Paradox might have a rep for lots of paid DLC, but their games are so good that I'm okay with that. I think most publishers could learn an important lesson here.

Someone needs to put a stop to Chris Roberts and his scam... This is a con of massive proportions.

The worst part is that I'm pretty sure Roberts is conning himself as much as anyone else. He genuine believes that he's making the greatest game of all time, and when it all comes crashing down he's going to be as surprised as the poor fools who believed him.

Good news, I say. I'd love to see them apply the Stellaris model to Battletech in terms of future content, support and DLC.

I find it quite disturbing how many of you think this is okay. Blizzard is literally ordering surveillance on their own players OUTSIDE of the game to detect "toxicity".

They're actively looking for people who are breaching Blizzard's terms of service, and banning them before they cause too much trouble. I think it's great.
