id is surely making Doom 2, considering how well the original went over.

Borderlands 3 will once again curb stomp this franchise.

Very different games IMO. Borderlands was all about loot, coop and mindless shooting. RAGE was more a traditional FPS with RPG-like hub areas. I didn't like Borderlands much at all (I hate loot games and never play online) but I liked RAGE.

I find they have similar tone to each other.

RAGE was okay but really lacking in content compared to Borderlands. RAGE ended so abruptly it felt unfinished, you finally get to "bad ass" level of weapons and they only have that one end mission where you duke it out with the elite troops.

We'll see what they come up with for RAGE 2 but after the mess Bethesda made of Wolfenstein I don't hold out much hope.

The new Wolfenstein is pretty much universally praised. Did you get angry that you weren't killing "hoardes" of brown people, since you apparently think that was what ww2 was about?

News Comments > RAGE 2 Video Leak?
3. Re: RAGE 2 Video Leak? May 14, 2018, 10:11 Beamer
 
Bethesda logo, not id, correct (I may have missed it.)

Supports my theory that id isn't going near this and it's being farmed off to a lesser dev. Which isn't necessarily bad, few people loved Rage so a new team may be able to bring in new ideas and take different risks.

Id did too well with Doom, I think, to revisit this. Maybe had Doom not done well, but Doom was kind of explosive. Hard to imagine them stepping back to a dead end after that. But what do I know, devs and publishers do weird things.

He's currently ruining European relations too. Lots of inner political calls here to flat out oppose him and ignore any sanctions by the USA. And as last stop we have the Swift banking system. Trump might have just pissed away 70 years of alliance.

Europe is a dumpster fire and it's only going to get worse, there's a few countries that are putting up a good fight but for how long? Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic.

What was the point of WWII when they just hand everything over to invading hordes from the south. I feel sorry for the people in Europe that didn't want this for the future of their children, but can one person do when the state exerts their will against yours.

Pretty sure the point of ww2 was to stop the white supremacists, so for a second time, kinda curious about which side you rooted for if you think it was about stopping the "hordes" from overtaking Europe from the south...

3. Re: Worst date ever May 11, 2018, 18:31 Beamer
 
I think I told the story here, but I went on a date with a girl back in 2014. We then did a second date, during which I decided I was not interested in pursuing further and rushed through the date.

She proceeded to find me on Facebook and send me dozens of messages over the next 9 months. I never once responded. I didn't really even read them.

Things go quiet, then in 2016 she finds my now dormant OKCupid profile and starts messaging it. With a different account, so she somehow found my account despite me having moved to an entirely different coast.

The comments are... bad. She's convinced that I am working with the SVP/General Counsel of Facebook to steal her thoughts. She is accusing me of ruining her life. She accuses me of insulting the military somehow. She then starts yet another account and keeps messaging me. Everything is along the lines of me stealing her brainwaves and her ideas and why am I colluding with the government to ruin her life. The final message was just "Please stop what you are doing. This is the CIA. We are taking over from here. Now."

After seeing this woman, I googled the one that did it to me. The top hits with her username are all on mob stalking/crowd stalking /gangstalking YouTube videos, with her claiming she is a victim of home invasions, botched medical procedures, "voice to skull," etc.

The worst thing is I wish I could say I stopped talking to her because she was obviously crazy, but it was so much more shallow than that.

I was dreading the ACTUALLY 'splaining.
I trigger a bit when people tell me things I already know, but I suppose you're providing a service for anyone that doesn't
... I didn't call the guy a reviewer. Just wanted to point out that it wasn't a situation where the developer messed up and it was truly about someone unable to accomplish the basics. They originally uploaded the video as a laugh but then everyone freaked out about "how can he review it if he blah blah blah" ... oh god now I'm doing it!

A combination of not knowing what people have discussed before, but also the standard thing on the internet that sometimes you're adding detail for other people but it comes across like you think the original person is confused. Happens even when agreeing sometimes.

Again, didn't mean it that way, so yeah, apologies if I worded poorly. And apologies for when I inevitably do it again in the future, haha.

Well, Iíd rather have seen some Wolfie 3 stuff at E3, but this will do, since they clearly have fixed the engine to work properly.

Gonna be my first and prolly only time to go to E3, so Iím hoping to see some awesome shit.

I think Wolf2 sold somewhat poorly, so that Rage sold well enough for a sequel hopefully means it did, too. While I enjoyed the first, to an extent, I really feel the second lifted it into something much more entertaining.

Or simply not being able to play the game, like this infamous review for Cuphead, where the reviewer wasnt familiar with basic platformer mechanics. Or using a controller. Or both.

How is that not fair? A person shouldn't have to be an experienced gamer to try a game and understand how it works - at a basic level - inside of 10 minutes. Unless the devs definitely state that a controller is required and the game isn't suited to new gamers, it's fair criticism.

It doesn't always make sense to be contrarian... The guy he's talking about was stuck in the tutorial level that was literally teaching him how to play the game.

Unless the devs definitely state that a controller is required

And he's not saying "he wasn't using a controller" but rather, he didn't know how to use a controller.

It's an extreme example but there really are some folks who lack the most basic of basics, that's not the fault of the developer. The Cuphead tutorial was far more detailed than normal even.

The guy stuck in the tutorial wasn't a reviewer, and it wasn't a review. He was a tech guy at an event, and he recorded it. Honestly, I don't get why people cared so much. It was a preview from a guy who was there for different genres, posted in part because his colleagues found it amusing and in part because maybe people did want to see Cuphead, even if a guy that sucks at platforming was playing it.

Again, it wasn't a review, and never did the guy say "man, this game sucks, you made it too hard!"

Jesus yes we don't need to reiterate this entire non-scandal again. People definitely blew it up, I was replying to Cutter misunderstanding the example in his effort to never be wrong.

Sorry, didn't mean for it to be contentious. I haven't discussed it much, at least that I remember, here. It was more I didn't want Cutter to have another thing to incorrectly dive into.

Per isthereanydeal.com there's been a sale on amazon for an xcom 2 war of chosen expansion for $10 total. Also I believe prior to release Greenmangaming had a sale on it.

Just gotta keep an eye out

Yeah, I have an alert set for it on isthereanydeal. That $9.99 was only on July 25th, according to Camelcamelcamel. The game came out in mid-August, so either it was a one day deal or, more likely, a mistake. Actually, scanning reddit it was a mistake and only a handful of people managed to get it at that price before Amazon corrected it within the hour. No mention of whether Amazon honored that pricing, though I'd guess they did.

Let's be honest, there's a lot of entitlement in video gaming. I'd absolutely argue more than other hobbies. Hell, even here, where we have a pretty mature and intelligent community, we still get people popping into threads to let you know they hate a developer for something he did 15 years ago and therefore he deserves to die via asphyxiation on genitals.

So yeah, Steam reviews are regularly full of people who just say "this dev sucks, this game is the worst thing ever made, so dumb, lulz!" Often from someone with like 10 minutes in the game (though I think Steam stopped allowing that.)

If you worked really hard on a game and genuinely feel it's a solid effort, I can see why you think those reviews are unfair. On the other hand, they're often totally fair and warranted, and just because a dev feels he put in his best effort doesn't mean the game is worthy of the price, or even anyone's time.

All that said... "Insel Games, lulz!"

Yup, buyers know early so they can put in orders. But Rage 2 is a surprise. I'd wonder if it's outsourced and not from id.

The others are basically all given, except maybe Splinter Cell.

Except pretty much ever "socjus" criticized the whole thing at least as loudly as people like you did. What do we call you, anyway? Your primary interest in the world is social justice, and you do it from behind a keyboard, so you qualify as a social justice warrior by most definitions.

Except you want to hinder it. Your main goal in life is status quo, and making sure that the current social status quo remains constant. That things remain how you like them, how you personally are comfortable, and what benefits you (even though it's generally clear you don't feel like you benefitted much, or have achieved much, and it's the fault of everyone else.)
You mean besides that the socjus voices didn't? They got articles published in various socjus magazines and were promoted by it. Your stunning ignorance in believing that I do this from just behind a keyboard is well...staggering. What would you call me? Mainstream society.

My primary interest is against people who want to create a world where you have to step so carefully from offending someone that if you piss in the wrong direction, that it's offensive.

So what does that make you? A regressive, a person who wants to move the world back to the times pre-sexual revolution. Why don't you explain to everyone why you need safe spaces, word watchers, restricted media, and censorship to make the world a better place.

People who use the term "cuck" as an insult can't be leading a sexual revolution.
Also, people too stupid to understand the difference between Elizabeth Olsen wishing she had better clothing in The Avengers and thinking anyone in a corset is bad.


Insulting a kink, and also people's gender or sexuality, isn't pro-sex.
Feeling that it would be nice if there were real women in video games instead of window dressing isn't anti-sex.

You get so much backwards, in desperate attempts to not be the villain.

If you have HBO, watch Wyatt Cenac's new show. Just the first episode. You'll not agree with all or much of it, but his segment on how Dave Grossman teaches police officers to kill is insane.

He literally tells them that after killing someone they'll go home and give their wives the best fucking of their lives. He preaches that killing someone is not a big deal and is easy.

Keep in mind, he never killed anyone. Why does he get invited to things? Even Trump invited him to the White House. He's a lunatic that people keep listening to.

No idea why, just feels like that's where I'd want to pay. I think Dishonored 2 hit that (but I have no time to play so haven't bought), but FCP seems to never get below a ridiculous $19.99, and the XCOM 2 expansion keeps going to $29.99 (given how much I love that franchise, I really should just support it, but not sure when I'd have time to revisit the game.)

Dishonored 2 is an awesome game. Easily worth 20 bucks. So is the XCOM 2 expansion, which is also awesome.

Far Cry Primal looks like pure poop to me, but Ubisoft seems convinced its games are now worth pure gold for ten years straight. I've been waiting on Unity to go for 10 bucks. That game is what, almost five years old? I think I haven't seen it for less than 20.

Edit: Fixed busted quote tag.

Yeah, I'm sure they'll be fun, I just have such a backlog and, for some reason, it'd take a deal to vault one of those games to the top.
And, for some reason, I just end up back with FTL all the damn time.

I've ranted on Ubi being so dumb about pricing down. I get that Steam lowered the value of games very, very quickly 5+ years ago, but having a game sit at $29.99 after the sequel is out seems ridiculous. Especially when it was a dud like Primal. I want to play it, but know I'd probably not like it (as probably the biggest FC fan here), so...
