News Comments > Rise of the Tomb Raider Next Month
20. Re: Rise of the Tomb Raider Next Month Dec 28, 2015, 01:10 Overon
 
Is this going to be like the last Tomb Raider, the one where Lara is conflicted about taking taking human and animal life in the cutscenes but in the actual gameplay she's curb stomping and brutally executing like it's Gears of War?

I could never get past that dichotomy it pulled me right out of the narrative. It's a major problem where the tone in the cutscenes is different from the tone in gameplay. It's almost like they had 2 different teams who didn't talk each other, create the game.

No problem right other than personally identifiable information available for all to see. No big deal right? Wrong. Do you know about social engineering and doxxing?

Best thing you can do is not let Steam remember your credit card information. Uncheck that box.

Valve acts here like they are a publicly traded company downplaying. I love the vague "page information." They should tell people what that "page information" actually is and how it can be used to hurt them.

Totalbiscuit is right: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1so3l6a

"Look you hacker: a pathetic creature of meat and bone, panting and sweating as you run through my corridors. How can you challenge a perfect and immortal machine?"

But I'm concerned about these devs. I don't see a good track record with PC games. I hope it's not another low quality cash grab palying off the franchise name.

That guide is pretty damn good. Lots of good info, it's one of the few places where I would say that Feminist Frequency consulted with or used advice vetted by actual experts.

It pains me to see how accepting some of you are to something like this. I'm not saying you need to riot but silence is acceptance and acceptance means you are sheep being lead to the slaughter.

Or perhaps you are overstating this, is that possible? Somehow you are smart and informed enough to know what is going on. Do you not know if something is a deal or scam most of the time? It's not like they won't be giving you the exact product you pay for, whatever that price may be.
I would like think I'm reasonable and I like the rule of law. Of course this isn't as important as other events of the day around the world.

It IS illegal, especially if the price raise was only done as soon as the sale started, which every indication points to that being the case.

Okay I'm rational Overon here. Other than the poor pr move to add cosmetic paid content to an early access game that is unfinished and slow to get new content updates, are there any other arguments why this is bad idea? Given that the items are cosmetic, there are said to be random drops of items, you can buy items with real money or trade for them in game, I am really trying hard to find better arguments against it?

They really fucked some of the non paid community devs. A poster child case how game benefits from its community modders and the paid devs fuck them over. Very disappointing.

They want a bigger audience so they can sell more stuff. I understand, I just don't trust and my good faith was destroyed a few years ago.

I hope it fails miserably on Steam. I passed on the Battletech Kickstarter due to Piranha Games involvement.

That's a 2 years old article. Have you played lately? Whatever, I find that pretty low to wish nothing but bad luck so I'm not sure I want to meet you online.
So the article is two years old. I don't know how all the bad blood that all the design decisions that were made suddenly disappear? Why should anyone give this game another chance? Was IGP the scapegoat, and now that they are out of the picture, everything is as it should have been? I doubt that. I still see this as not much more than a mech buying simulator. The entire game is built around buying mechs, that is the business model. I don't know if you were around during the #savemwo campaign? The $500 mechs may not be anything to you just capitalism, especially when you consider the 1000+ ship costs of other games like Starcitizen, but the very fact that you would even think that selling $500 mechs tells me volumes about your motives and I say no. The game is not good enough and the developer's decisions were poor and they don't warrant a second look or a second chance.
