Has anyone here played any of these? If so, do they have any of the feel of the original Kings quest 1/2/3 games?

You know, I recently began replaying King's Quest 5 since Steam fixed the King's Quest collection a couple weeks ago allowing it to properly run now on Windows 7+ OS.

I guess it had been so long since I last played that I forgot how corny the dialogue was and the voice acting borderline horrendous. The voice acting is a lot better this time around due to having professional voices such as Christopher Lloyd. It still has it's corny dialogue though and it's either your OK with that or skipping through it as often as you can. Overall, I think it retains most of the spirit of the originals. I can't remember dying too much though (or at all).

Looks like a faster paced Paint the Town Red, except less violent...

I'm down. Heard lots of good things about it but never actually played it.
I'd imagine a remastered edition is due at this point to double dip. Additionally as PC gamers never got it, they usually get the remastered editions.

They probably took more time to work on that trailer than they did on this re-release.

Honestly, if someone made a similar mod to this like Brutal Doom, I'd be all over it, but I've played the hell out of Duke in every form possible. No need to tread the same ground for the umpteen time.

I hate EA.
My one buddy is still sore from his over $120 purchase of the Star Wars Battlefront full package.
EA will wrap up turds and there will always be buyers. Not saying this is going to be as I'm a fan of the Battlefield series, however the milking of the franchise is no doubt there.

News Comments > StarCraft HD Next Month?
13. Re: StarCraft HD Next Month? Aug 5, 2016, 14:33 Xero
 
There was an article a couple months ago that Blizz was looking for assistance on reworking Diablo in HD so I'd expect 1 and 2 to get this treatment as well soon.

It's Blizzard so you can definitely expect it NOT to be 10 bucks on release. I'm thinking they will try to justify a 20-30 price range and the Blizz fanbois WILL pay.

I myself wouldn't mind a WC3 HD update as I played multi to death on that game, however overall I'd prefer a WC4 with the WC3 gameplay. Not sure if that'll ever happen while my hands can still function properly.

I would soooo be all over this. Heck, I'd be all over L4D2 I think if it was on an updated engine at this point. I do miss my L4D fix. Played the hell out of both games.

You got to admit though, nowadays, Source looks like arse. I still remember when Source was first shown as a tech demo and it blew everyone's mind. I showed a buddy and he immediately dropped his console stuff to join the PC world. He never looked back since.

News Comments > Gatherings & Competitions
4. Re: Gatherings & Competitions Jun 27, 2016, 12:55 Xero
 
Watching the soccer games that were going on the past couple weeks made me realize just how more lamer eSports are. However if someone spends a long time to master anything, I suppose it should be respected.

I think the biggest issue here is that the gamer is mastering something that he actually has zero control over. The rules and variables involved of skill are all programmer controlled. They can change anything they want which could render your skill useless. As opposed to learning a skill such as, I don't know, juggling a ball. It looks impressive and you have full control over it.

Surprised considering Steam Sales is right around the corner that they would let anything go for free. Trying to compete with Origin with the giveaways at this point?

Either way, it's a great game worth little money or not. In other words, I paid for it (I think 5 bucks years ago), and do not feel bad at all if it's free at this point.

I did beat it, a long with the plenty of deaths that went a long with it. But it was a heck of a way to die each time

Disgarding this, Origin does actually have a NICE freebie out of all the garbage they usually drop you.
NOX. Anyone remember that? I still remember owning the disc copy.
To my surprise when I went to download this freebie I saw that and immediately grabbed it.Fired up problem free. Classic game.

I still have the original Styx and haven't gotten far enough. It looked nice graphically but the game play was kind of simplistic/annoying stealth. Annoying in that sometimes you were seen when you thought you wouldn't be.

I'm not sure I'm eager to return to the world anytime soon.

I definitely enjoyed JC3 the most of the series, however I have grown a bit tired of it and still aren't even close to finishing it. This mech in the video looks kind of corny. Sliding around on wheels? I would of liked more leg movement action to feel more mech like. But whatever, I doubt I'll ever get around to getting this as I'm no where near finished with the original.

Yeah, surprising, for all the open world and crazyness of the game, I found the bug count pretty low. Can't recall any specific that I encountered. However the game does still take a decent amount of time to load and that prevents me from jumping into it for a quick session.

I did get a little tired of it however, as it does get a bit boring when it's the same raid and capture town over and over with unlimited spawning enemies until you destroy everything needed.

Outcast is one of my all time favourites. The Voxel based engine was a complete anomaly that ran well on many different kinds of hardware without dedicated GPUs, which definitely contributed to its success. However, I can't help but think of it as a product of its time. Even with updated 3d graphics, I don't think the gameplay is going to stand up well to modern comparisons.

It's game play can stand up as long as they modernize it a bit. This isn't a graphic over hull of the original as they already did that. This is a remake of the original which means they can do whatever the hell they want to modernize the game play and well, everything. The only things that should remain intact really is the story and everything that goes with it.

BTW- I still have the original on disc and the huge box that PC games were known for, lol. Make me an offer, and it's yours!

News Comments > Mafia III Trailer
10. Re: Mafia III Trailer May 29, 2016, 10:22 Xero
 
The trailer wasn't all that appealing, however I have no doubt this game is going to be great. The team has had plenty of time to work on this and I feel they inject all that they can in their Mafia games before releasing them, with no stone left unturned.

What you basically get each Mafia release is an updated graphic engine, with as much as they could put in to the game storywise to provide you with practically a feature film gangster/mafia movie.

Who knows, the graphics we saw here might be from the console version. Mafia was never #1 on graphics either way. It's story was what carried them.
