News Comments > Hatred Earns AO Rating
8. Re: Hatred Earns AO Rating Jan 16, 2015, 23:28 Xero
 
Sounds like Robocop in the 80s. Got multiple X ratings when the movie didn't have much sexual scenes but rather for it's ultra violence.

Not much different here!

News Comments > Ubisoft on Watch Dogs 2 Expectations

The only expectation I saw met in Watch Dogs was the main character ran around in a trench coat with cloth physics which was something new and incredible to console kids.

Mean while I was doing that years ago in Mafia 2. lol

Any award shows/programs are just paid off advertising for companies. It's all opinionated at the end. So 1 doesn't win but the other does, does that make the first a shitty game? No, in fact some might think the opposite of the winners and nominees. It's just a matter of opinions and having the right muscle behind the vote.

Looking forward to Hotline Miami 2. Miami 1 was one of the few titles I actually completed to the end, lol.
Had a lot of fun playing it so I look forward to this one even if it would be almost equal to an expansion.

Wish I got a demo to see otherwise!

There's a beta, but I've not heard anything positive about it, either.


Is the beta available to everyone?

Still don't trust em! Gameplay should be solid enough prior to even DLC releases to think about releasing DLCs before a launch! From what I hear, the game is a turd.

Wish I got a demo to see otherwise!

There are a number of things I like about HotS, but there's also a bunch I absolutely *hate*. Their pricing model is gouging beyond gouging, and having 90% of the gameplay locked behind a paywall is utterly infuriating. Like, I enjoy what they've done with the map rotation, as well as objectives, and the shorter game time is often nice, although I'll confess, I'm much less invested than I am in a Dota2 game. But the amount of gouging they're doing in this game has me utterly unable to enjoy playing it regularly, because it's like being accustomed to racing Formula-one cars and then being put in a Prius and being told to have fun racing! I keep giving it a try here and there, but too much of the content is behind a paywall, and the prices for entry are waaaaaaaaaaay too high.

This is true to an extent...

Blizzard prices things up there to make enough return on their time to develop the game and pay everyone's paychecks at the end of the month. Let's remember, they didn't make this game for free to just give out to the masses and say, ENJOY, WE LOVE'D WORKING FOR FREE.

With that said, if you aren't going to pay up and would rather, freeload the entire game, you have to earn it. Gold rewards are weak, but they do give free hero rotation weekly so you won't get bored of using the same heroes while the rest are on lock down. The downside would be that you have less time to truly master 1 hero if you have to give him up each week when he's thrown out of the rotation.

I see the ups and downs and think it's nice Blizzard gives you a chance to play every hero eventually thru the random rotations and that lets a newbie player get his feet wet and experience a little bit of everything and earn something while you play. On the otherhand, if your truly hardcore and want a specific character or character set, you have to pay up to get it immediately... I think that separates the hardcore from the, I'm just here to play for free freeloaders.

News Comments > All Platform Battlefield Hardline Beta Coming
14. Re: All Platform Battlefield Hardline Beta Coming Jan 15, 2015, 08:11 Xero
 
Funny how people complain when companies don't release a demo anymore these days. Yet can't find appreciation for a company that allows you in there BETA TEST FOR FREE.

People will say it sucks but that is why they are letting us all in, to find out that truth. Not to mention if it is still an incomplete game, they can make tweaks still.

I'll definitely keep an eye out for this beta because I just bought BF4 recently and felt like I just fell in a love with Battlefield all over again.

Worse comes to worse and Hardline isn't worth my time, I'll just stick with BF4 until the NEXT Battlefield comes out, lol.

By the time this gets into release, MOBA's will be on the decline.

I don't think they can ever be in a decline. It's a genre in itself just about. There are many out there and each has it's own perks to build a fanbase.

DOTA2 from Valve has their groupie. LoL undoubtedly has their own and when Blizzard releases HOTS, I'm sure a lot of players of those groups will switch over and consider HOTS the most refined version of them all and jump on it.

I just don't think it will ever disappear. You got new players all the time, and when those players learn all they can, they become the next gen players when the old timers retire or get bored of it. It's just a never ending cycle.

Awesome! Alpha has been rock stable as far as my experience. If anything I've noticed the coding/performance gets better and better with each patch. Now with my PC upgrade, the game runs smooth as butter and that was during Alpha.

Beta should bring more polish as the game feels probably 90% more complete than most others in Gold status.

If your looking for the next best DOTA style game, keep an eye on this one because to me, Blizzard has perfected what makes DOTA great, but players don't want to spend 30+ minutes on a match.

There are other titles similar to this one, on a lower budget of course, and honestly this style of gameplay gets boring quick. Try out Primal Carnage on Steam to get an idea or even Depth.

The most fun I've had with this style of gameplay was Giants Citizen Kabuto but it had so much going for it including a fun as hell single player.

Max Payne 3 ran great on my last computer, so I'm hoping GTA V will run really well. If only you could skip the cutscenes in Max Payne 3....

Did you notice that there weren't any loading screens in Max Payne 3? They played the pre-rendered cut-scene movies while the next area was being loaded. I seem to recall that they made a post-release patch that allows you to skip the remainder of a cut-scene after the loading was complete.

This is true but it isn't implemented well. You can skip, only until after it's done loading which you have no idea so all your doing is constantly pressing the enter key to skip while it tells you basically to wait. You don't know why you have to wait to skip at random moments unless you knew it was preloading the level in advance.

I think Battlefield 4 suffers this as well or I noticed wrong.

I understand delays suck but whatever. Deal with it. Cancelling your pre-order or claiming you will pirate the game will not change the fact that it's delayed.

Delayed is only for the better to get a bug free, stable game. I actually built my PC for this game but I have soooo much other sh!t to keep busy meantime that I honestly don't care this is delayed at this point.

Just relax, the time will go by quick (February is the shortest month), and play something else meantime.

News Comments > Alien: Isolation Safe Haven DLC Released
5. Re: Alien: Isolation Safe Haven DLC Released Jan 13, 2015, 16:31 Xero
 
Is Alien Isolation worth the buy? I'm not looking at any DLC content, just the base game. Is it honestly worth it? I've been on the fence but do enjoy the Alien universe.

I'm just not so sure I dig these hide and seek type games. I'm getting enough fill with Outlast and it's wearing thin on me that I don't think I could go thru it again.

Graphically the game looks great though and I'd love to have another game to show off my recent build. Just wondering if I should wait for GTA5 for that.

Sounds like desperation. Pre-order sales must be sucking bad so they are trying to up the ante to get people to chalk over more money by claiming additional crap is worth all the extra $$$ to preorder.

Not looking good at all.
I too hope they fail miserably because this is getting out of control these days and this takes it to that next level with this type of shiieeet.

News Comments > New Hitman Game Details This Year
4. Re: New Hitman Game Details This Year Jan 12, 2015, 12:33 Xero
 
Funny this article just popped out because I reinstalled Absolution a couple days ago. Trying to get into it. Really trying, it's just hard, lol.
It seems to be confusing because it wants you to try various ways to take out the target, but knowing I can just go guns blazing makes it a predicament or what to do.

Seems I do OK for a little while, then someone catches me and I feel like, OK, guns blazing will do just fine. At that point I feel like I'm playing a little bit of Max Payne mixed with Splinter Cell and things just don't feel right.

Graphically it looks great, the Glacier 2 engine is phenomenal but the gameplay lacks something.

I too was a huge fan of the 1st and 2nd Hitman games.

Oh and in regards to this Overwatch fiasco, I'm honestly in no way interestedin this new IP. It's so boring and seems played out with the likes of what's come out since Team Fortress 2.

It's a big *yawn* and pass type of game, but I'm sure Blizzard will add it's usual flair and special touches to make it stand out over the rest. I just can't say I'm with them on board all the way. I'll definitely wait to see what the heck it's all about when it releases.

I will say though, I've played quite a bit of Heroes of the Storm and do enjoy it specifically when I only have 15 minutes for a game and just want to have a good time.

Yeah my problem with DOTA2 is that games go on a bit too long. I want a 15-20 minute thing, not 25-40.

Yep, I think Blizzard's goal with Heroes of the Storm is to make 15-20min matches, pretty typical with an RTS match from their catalog as well. Just to further show they are pushing for that time range, when the matches go into the later time frame, there is plenty more assist to get that win including game finishing hero abilities, and the usual heavy building damage catapults and whatnot that start to auto spawn.

Also, each map is distinct in the side objectives that each time has to fight for and to give an idea, there is a map with a Golem that keeps getting stronger as you collect skulls in the mines. As you get it stronger and it keeps moving towards your opponents base, eventually the golem will literally spawn inside your opponents base with the strength you earned it. This puts a statement that the match will be over soon unless someone makes a game changing move...

Overall I'm loving the way Heroes of the Storm is shaping up and my only sadness would be that I think Blizzard is done with the RTS route with Starcraft 2. I doubt I'll ever see a true Warcraft 3 RTS sequel and that was my favorite game for many a years (around 10).
