Looks real good. Can see a lot of polishing can take this far. Hoping they put a lot of effort in to making this a great game.

News Comments > The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Released
30. Re: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Released May 19, 2015, 10:35 Xero
 
So what's the verdict?

Worth 50 clams or bargain bin? I kind of regret falling for the GTA5 hype as it definitely wasn't worth the $45 I paid for it...

With that in mind, would another open world be worth $40+?

Not sure if I'm getting sick of them or I just don't have as much time on my hands for them.

I do like the medieval fantasy environment but I never dug the Witcher character in general. I'm open to trying it again though.

Kind of crazy that I remember downloading the original Cossacks many a years ago and the series is still going after then. Don't got much interest in it though.

News Comments > DOOM Reveal at E3
12. Re: DOOM Reveal at E3 May 18, 2015, 14:51 Xero
 
From what I heard from people that went to an event last year that revealed Doom very early to them, it's much like old school Doom. Lots of corridors and run and gun shooting gameplay.

No more of Doom 3's cheap scare spawns where you pick up an item and something spawns immediately behind you. Also the pacing of Doom 3 was very weak. Too slow for an official Doom sequel. I understand they wanted to show off the graphics more than anything and they were aiming at a more story oriented Doom, but let's face it, it more or less sucked.

This one is suppose to go back to basics so while that graphic engine displayed for 4 seconds in this clip didn't look all that great, I think the gameplay is going to more than make up for the game visually.

I need a good reason to get back into this game. I keep going in for a moment and getting bored and leaving for months on end, lol.

Perhaps I'm not sure which direction to go after getting to the end game. Do you just do Rift runs? Is there anything else to do?

Thats really all there is to do, Trying to run Rifts so you can upgrade your gems.

You can run adventure mode, but the only reason to really do that is to get certain uniques that only drop from the bounty boxes and keys.

Nothing else really.

What's the point of upgrading your gems again?

News Comments > Overwatch Video
7. Re: Overwatch Video May 14, 2015, 10:33 Xero
 
I'm not sure what to think.

I believe Blizzard should just stick with what they do best. Action RPGs, RTS, and dab into another MMORPG maybe? FPS doesn't seem all that great because there are so damn many out there that do most of it better.

This looks weak in many different areas. The voice overs get annoying quick. The animation looks smooth but gets old fast, and maybe I'm used to playing more mature looking FPS such as Counter Strike and Battlefield likes, but this was too colorful for me and "clean". At least Team Fortress 2 which has similar palette lets you gib opponents and make a bloody mess from time to time to remind you what your playing.

Not digging it but it is alpha and tons can change as seen in Heroes of the Storm alpha. From graphic improvements to obvious gameplay enhancements.

As much as I and a lot think it's redonkulus that they keep pushing these out yearly, there has to be a nice sales figure in order to keep doing it. Somebody is buying whether it's not you or me.

News Comments > Alien: Isolation Sales Disappoint
14. Re: Alien: Isolation Sales Disappoint May 11, 2015, 10:33 Xero
 
Lol, the expectations these days.

I got this game for a decent sale price waaaay below what it launched for but probably more than I'd have liked to pay

With that said, I got stuck almost immediately in the game as there are zero hints or clues provided where to go. The sad part, I ended up looking at a walk-through to find out where to go and I could tell the walk-through dude got stuck at the exact same spot because the video was cut and re-edited to look like he just continued on seamlessly. He must of got stuck also and watched ANOTHER walk-through to figure out where to go. This was right in the beginning areas...Within probably the first 40 minutes of gameplay...

Someone needs to drop the nail in AC coffin already. This series has gone on waaaaay too long. Has it already eclipsed Resident Evil? A franchise from the 90s that has numerous spin offs and sequels? lol

Motherfucker is that ever gory! Cyclops though! Never see enough of them in CRPGs for some reason. Always loved the cyclops since the old Sinbad flick as a kid.


I see your Sinbad, and raise you Krull!

krull is legend

Crazy, I had a random moment at work that told me to watch this movie this weekend(own the DVD), and then I read your comments here today. Scary actually, lol.

News Comments > Mortal Kombat X Patch Returns; Saved Game Fix Plans
5. Re: Mortal Kombat X Patch Returns; Saved Game Fix Plans May 7, 2015, 11:21 Xero
 
I was a huge fighting genre advocate on the N64 as bad as most of them were, and plenty of them had saved game features including MK Trilogy...

That is correct as well that Dreamcast which was a arcade fighting console gold mine, had tons of saved data for unlockables and stats.

It's not so much that you are saving your location progress as other games, but rather your experience and collection of rewards that you earned over the experience you've gained.

I wish the Steam key was cheaper because I prefer to keep them all under 1 umbrella. Sucks that places offering the Steam key at a discount hardly offer any discount.

Awesome! I'm always down for new ways to enhance the gaming experience that don't just have to do with the visuals. I think Star Wars universe has tons of sound FX to make it worth bringing this to. Looking forward to hearing it.

Since I got the premium edition, I'm suppose to get all these characters when they come out? Why the hell did I have to pay for Goro?

You paid extra for Goro? I thought it was the pre-order bonus. It was for me through Amazon.

I am loving this new MK. The story is, as always, cheesy and only mildly entertaining but the variety of gameplay modes provide some great replay value. I am underwhelmed with Jason, but the other addon characters look interesting although I hope Tanya isn't a Sonya clone in a different skin.

Still looking for a good fighting stick for my PS4 though. I had two for my PS3, one came with a Collector's Edition of Street Fighter vs Tekken and the other came with the Collector's Edition of MK9. I dig the new dualshock but it's still not nearly as good as an arcade stick for fighting games.

I never preordered, maybe that's why Goro wasn't included. But I do have premium.

Do NOT get MKX on PC. Worst port I've ever seen. I've got 2x 780GTX in SLI and quad core cpu. I'm getting around 5 fps, if that; really choppy/laggy/super-unsmooth gameplay. Tried all settings, plenty of different hacks on forums. It's just plain horribly.

Must be your configuration. I'm on a single 970gtx and it runs smooth as butter...
