News Comments > Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn This Spring

lol I had the original ShaqFu for Sega Game Gear. It was pretty weak but kept me up at night with the Game Gear's bright screen.

This looks just as horrible, lol.

For those that beat Witcher 3, I recommend one of these HD patches and having another go at it. Makes it totally worth the next go around. I actually plan to use one of these HD mods (there are a few) as soon as I upgrade my graphic card to redo the entire experience again from scratch. Greatest game I ever played.

Wow... Witcher 3 still going strong. Heres hoping those that just bought it play more than 20 hours worth to realize they are taking part in probably the greatest game ever made.

It's funny because although Portal 2 has been out for ions I feel, I just recently got into it and beat it. I loved it so much I played the original as I had that in my library since the Half Life Orange Box, lol.

I can see how so many companies would be inspired to have their own take. At this point with no Portal 3 most likely on the way for decades, I'm happy if others can do just as good of a job at their attempt to bring that magic back.

Whether you agree with what he said or not, I'm sure the LEADER of the FREEWORLD could have selected a better choice of word to use.

The POTUS always had a strong stature amongst countries around the world for us showing our integrity and "peaceful" solutions to police the world. At this time, NOBODY in any other country thinks that way of the POTUS. If you simply don't care about that because your in it only for what he can do for you, well, quite selfish ah?

I bought a MadCatz controller for my Nintendo 64 2 weeks after launch. The damn controller connection end got stuck in my Nintendo 64 requiring me to mail the entire console to Nintendo for repair, rofl.

Last time I ever bought a Madcrapz product.

News Comments > Killing Floor 2 Free Weekend
4. Re: Killing Floor 2 Free Weekend Dec 30, 2017, 18:23 Xero
 
I bought this game on a cheap sale despite not really caring too much for it when I got into the beta.

I was hoping it would be my new L4D fix but it's far from it. It plays too arcadey and feels too hectic at times. Almost like too much is going on and too many arrows/markers showing you where or what you have to do. It gets crazy.

While L4D had a more organic feel to it and the sense of dread around a corner, this game just feels like chaos. Graphics aside, it's pretty damn weak all around.

I was a huge AMD fan when they first came out and I got my Compaq with one installed. I tried to stick with them being the cheaper of the two but in the end, you get what you pay for.

Intel has been headache free for me since I switched from AMD in my builds. I never went back. My last AMD was the Black Edition of whatever it was called, lol. Long ago.

By the time this game comes out, it's gonna look old and outdated. There is so much already in there that looks like been there done that. Heck the spaceship in Alien Isolation has a more realistic look than that.

I also find the facial animations to look quirky but I'm sure they can fix that up.

News Comments > Middle-earth: Shadow of War Expansion & Patch
1. Re: Middle-earth: Shadow of War Expansion & Patch Nov 21, 2017, 18:58 Xero
 
This game reminds me of Left 4 Dead 2 (I know, probably couldn't be anymore different). Except that Left 4 Dead 2 was almost Left 4 Dead, with everything done right. Graphically identical more or less and just added so much more to what was already a fun game on it's own. Left 4 Dead 2 just felt complete.

While Shadow of Mordor was quite repetitive to me, watching the gameplay videos of this new one, it looks nearly identical. Obviously with plenty of new enhancements that warrant a sequel positioning as L4D2.

I haven't played this Shadow of War title yet and probably will not until the price drops to bargain bin, but it at least appears this way from all the gameplay videos I've watched. Heck, even the music seemed identical to the original...

CDPR is just old school. Not too many of those companies left around that put out AAA quality games.

Typically speaking, if you are making AAA games, you are including micro transactions, DLC's up the wazoo, or charging an arm and a leg for the DLC's. So far, CDPR hasn't done that, but they don't have a huge catalog of titles under their belt either. You can take that both ways. Surprised that with the lack of titles that they don't try to grab more easy money where they can, or surprised that with lack of titles they choose to give more back to the gamers/fans while not filling up their own wallets.

Business sense, it doesn't seem to make sense, but honest sense where every other AAA companies have left, surprisingly, it's there. One thing for sure, it will make business sense in the long run when the gamers stick with them and help support them for what they've given out initially.

When the AAA companies turn their back on the fans and start nipping at us every way possible, I imagine they don't give a sh!t about what we think and are aiming at the kids who get their mom/dads CC to pay for everything because I sure as hell won't.

News Comments > Outcast - Second Contact Released
3. Re: Outcast - Second Contact Released Nov 15, 2017, 18:26 Xero
 
I have Outcast 1.1 and the original still on disc including the box. Needless to say a huge Outcast fan here.

This update is totally worth it. I mean I got it with a 45% discount on Steam but wouldn't go after it for more than that. It's totally worth 20 bucks. It's the same game with a graphic make over and it's a beauty. The moment you appear in the farmlands and hear that symphony kick in, you will have nostalgic memories immediately.

I see a lot of hater reviews on Steam but don't know exactly what else they were expecting. It's an awesome overhaul but nothing overly done. The game is nearly identical in every aspect gameplay wise. They added a sprint feature which I guess is neat but then an annoying dodge feature which I could do without. Otherwise, everything else is mostly faithful including the amazing sound effects and fun voice acting.

Highly recommended for old time fans and newcomers that don't have a clue what they missed out on in 1999.

Beat Little Nightmares and it was honestly a bit underwhelming. I even tried the first DLC and that too was pretty weak.

Think I'll skip out on the rest of the DLC they put out.

News Comments > On PUBG Cheating
14. Re: On PUBG Cheating Nov 6, 2017, 10:10 Xero
 
This will always be the number one complaint of many gamers that prefer console gaming over PC. They always point to the rampant cheaters online vs console online gaming.

While it does suck, I probably don't play enough online gaming to care. Other than CSGO which does have it's fair share, it's usually easy to point out which are obvious cheaters vs fair skill.

This isn't a bad thing. I got all 3 collector editions and I'm not sour.

The game is aging and quite frankly, if nobody is paying for it full price anymore, why not come up with a better strategy to make $$$ off of it?

I got my money worth for the time the game was released. You can't compare then to now. Now doesn't compare to then.

HellDivers was disappointing for me. Made by the peeps that did Gauntlet which I had a blast with. HellDivers controls just are too nutty when the heat gets going. The reloading of the guns feels too frequent and I didn't see an auto reload so often I was stuck firing an empty gun until I hit "R".

I also found the interface a tad clunky to get a mission going. It does have a nice following though still playing it.

GTFO!!! Whaaaaat???? I LOVE THIS GAME. I still have it on disc. I even bought it on Steam and it has like a zillion achievements. Everytime you pick something up the achievement icon pops up, lol.

This remake looks stunning. I honestly put some good time into the original despite the graphics from the 90s. It's that addictive. I can't wait to get my hands on this one.

Stunning music, fun shooting mechanics that aren't all that complex, and a free world to roam from the get go once you get off the snow planet (basically training planet).
