Mafia III sucked...Could not get into it at all...

Same. At first when I picked it up I thought everyone was wrong about it. The graphics looked great. The animation was dope and the shooting mechanics were generally really well done.

It's just missing something that grabs you. Maybe it was the location or something that I couldn't get into much at all.

Well that certainly does look like they put a lot of effort to truly remaster it. The graphics look noticeably improved.

Can't say that for some other remasters that have been released where they either simply "sharpen" up the textures/graphics and leave the interface outdated and terrible. Those are quick money grabs.

Even the general idea of a remaster is a money grab but how much effort they put in goes ways to show whether they actually cared to remaster it or not.

I'd rather see #1 redone, was a great game.

Same. I remember being blown away by the story telling and ending of it all. Mafia 2 never grabbed me the same way but I heard good things about it. I just could never get into it the same way Mafia 1 had me.

Mafia 2 still isn't terribly looking. I mean the trench coat does flap... so it has that going for it, lol.

Mafia 1 on the other hand was as good as it got prior to physics being introduced on everything these days. I would love to see a full blown remake. With that remake however, at least fix the racing segment in the game, lol.

I don't want to take a dump on Alyx because I never played it myself and maybe in time I will (not interested in VR at the moment. Not a $$$ issue, more of a space issue).

With that said, beating Black Mesa last night made me realize what a revolutionary company Valve was at the time that they put out Half Life. Taking away the better graphics in Black Mesa, the level design is still there from Valve regarding the puzzles/pacing, encounters and it's done so perfect. Definitely my #1 FPS of all time. It's probably my 5th overall play through of Half Life 1 in some form and it's never dull. If it's remade in another 20 years, I'll happily do it all over .

I'm about two hours in and it's okay. RE3 was more action-oriented than the previous two titles but I feel they've gone a bit too far with it and the similarities between both title are few and far between. While it has the same locations and characters the story itself is out of order which creates this weird pacing and the creative liberties make this more of a hard re-imagining than a soft remake especially when you look at how RE1R/RE2R were done. I really, really hate how they went about introducing Nemesis though.

It's nice seeing Raccoon City from the ground floor but when I saw the game clocked in at ~20GB I was pretty surprised so I am gearing up for a very quick game which I worry has little to no replay value since Mercenaries was stripped out.

I have a feeling that if Resistance wasn't bundled in then this would have made more sense as a $30USD game or maybe even as an expansion pack to RE2R.

Shorter game times surprised me at times but are also welcomed. With the amount of back log that it's easy to accumulate these days, where in the heck can anyone find all the time to get through and literally beat every title in their library? 6-10 hours is my perfect game time of how long a game should be. Just enough to get out before it either gets boring/repetitive or eats up too much time I can put into another one of my other games.

Yeah, 1st world problems.

After that disaster Commandos 2 remake, I've lost all faith or desire for a new Commandos game. I hope it's gonna be good though.

On the bright side, Desperados 3 is looking awesome. Damn I wish I played it while I was at PAX. I watched some play it and it looked good. I just wasn't into holding controllers/mice/keyboards with a potential death virus on the loose.

I am guessing these whales have a "it is too big to fail now" mentality.
Hope and beliefs cannot be questioned from the outside - the believers themselves need to find a way out of the labyrinth they willingly walked into. They got to find their own escape route - again by their own effort.
Humans are a believing bunch.
Cults and religions rely on people not being able to find a way out.



That's why Fox news still exists, and people not looking to discover the truth themselves! - ZING!

Good thing a video game can't be rigged.

I was just going to say. If hacks are hard enough to detect, I can only imagine when millions of dollars are on the line with betting. It'll only add to the need to make better undetectable hacks.

I know people love to treat competitive gaming like real sports but the reality is, they're not. I mean sure, an athlete can juice up, but in the end, his skills are still there that the juice should only compliment/enhance how good he already was.

In gaming, a hack can take a sh!!ty player to a whole new level. Once that hack is removed, guess what, he's still a sh!!tty player.

I also don't like the fact that the rules and balance is in the hands of the programmers who decide what gun they want to nerf/buff based on how often players use it or exploit it. Then a player can just get real good with that 1 gun until it gets nerfed and he's again, a shat player...

Competitive gaming will always be bound by the limitations of the code and whose behind that code to decide how good you really are.

I was always intrigued by the first games but never got into picking one up. I looks like it reminds me a bit of Joan of Arc. I was hooked on that game when it came out. Seems similar yet probably weaker overall. You got your troops that aren't all that intelli, you charge forts/castles, villages, and your like this OP'd hero within the troops.

These games looked a bit more on the realism side in comparison.

I saw this in action at PAX this year and it looked awesome. I think the Predator character just has the look to be more fun in 3rd person than 1st person as he's always previously been represented.

Fun fact, I owned this in my hayday, lol,

Wait, waaaaht? "created by one-man development studio FYQD"

The game looks like something a big budget studio would put together. I'm baffled.

Does it get better? I saw positive comments about it here so I picked it up on sale and played for an hour but it was just meh for me and I deleted it to go on to other things. I'm sure there's more stuff to do if I fire it up again.

I mean, it's 5 years old now and I remember beating it shortly after it's release so it could just be memories but I had a fun time with it back then. I know it started out kind of slow but once you start tacking on upgrades to your vehicle and character, it gets a lot better. Plus I found the combat tons of fun. Has the same Batman style of just clicking at the right time to parry/counter/dodge except you pull off like WWE moves on the enemies, lol.

All I want from Avalanche is a Mad Max 2. As easy as it can be to make a sequel for it, I'm fully aware that they can screw it up as well (Just Cause 4). I also tried Rage 2 and ended up refunding it. Just couldn't get into the over the top that they were going for. Was a little too much.

Mad Max was probably the most fun I had with an Avalanche Studio game. JC3 was good but also a tad over the top in madness that I could only handle in short play times.

News Comments > Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Adds Free Map

1. Re: Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Adds Free Map Mar 24, 2020, 17:44 Xero
 
I got to try getting back into this game. The one thing that always has bothered me even from Vermintide 1 was when you are in the frantic melee combat, it's just like, slash slash slash and you can barely see anything. The weapon overtakes the entire screen. I feel like the majority of the combat with the melee weapons results in me just randomly slashing at everything since I can't see too well what the heck is going on.

With that aside, the graphics were real nice and the animations. I would like to get into it a bit more but it's missing that "catching" factor others have.
