News Comments > Evolve 4th Monster; DLC; Season Pass Details

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.

News Comments > Blizzard's Overwatch Hits TM Snag
11. Re: Blizzard's Overwatch Hits TM Snag Jan 12, 2015, 12:24 Xero
 
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).

Yeah, that's part of the reason we loved and hated RE at the same time. The tank controls were a pain in the ass when you had to get out of a tight spot in a jiffy. Then when you finally turned yourself around and bolted, the camera would shift to kick your a$$ further, lol

I've played all the RE's that were on PC just fine with the tank controls early 2000s but that's when we had to make sacrifice to enjoy our titles. Tank controls are so barbaric these days. I'll still take pointing and moving in the direction that I press, even if that means the camera is going to screw with me 90% of the time.

I was going to ask about the controls. Will they be officially updated or are they going to remain tank controls. I honestly do not need any tank controls in my life.

I honestly was looking at a Giants Citizen Kabuto type of game when this was first announced. It seemed to not really become that after all.

Who the hell wouldn't want another Giants Citizen Kabuto? Heck, even a remastered edition would be great as the game was loads of fun and multi had plenty of great moments despite the bugs

News Comments > Mafia III News Soon?
9. Re: Mafia III News Soon? Jan 7, 2015, 23:18 Xero
 
I don't think Mafia's competition is GTA5 just because it's in a sandbox world. There are plenty of sandbox games but they don't have to compete with each other unless they try.

Mafia was in a different time setting completely which to me, immediately removes GTA comparisons just as The Saboteur when it came out.

Mafia 1 was an awesome game(minus the race part), and the story was movie like. Mafia 2 I never beat but played a bit into and thought it had a lot of great moments as well. I just might have to reinstall it soon.

Well my recent PC build more than meets the recommended requirements

I do love the feeling of rebuilding every 5-6 years. The improvements are astonishing!

Sony doesn't impress me 1 bit these days anymore. In the 80s and 90s they were serious premium electronics. I remember buying my first DVD player, a Sony costing $200. The damn thing couldn't even read burnt DVD media, yet a weird, no name brand, $50 dollar DVD player my sister picked up months later was able to, plus more.

Now I picked up a Sony Xperia Z3 phone just to try something different and I regret it just about everyday. Wishing I just kept with the HTC M8 as I was coming from the M7. The phone is so generic and missing so many shortcut features and helpfulness that the HTC packed. The second HTC comes out with the M9, I'm done with Sony for life, lol.

I dig the idea of dinosaurs only because I can't count how many times I thought there would be some great moments had a T-Rex been chasing me down the road, lol

I think they would have to go back though on the weaponry and make it a bit of Turok except without the crazy guns. Bows and arrows of course, shotguns, burst fire rifles, and maybe coconuts.

Considering this game is not much different than what you can do in GTA4-5, actually GTA probably being worse, I find it a joke that people come out of their quiet caves to complain about a game that hasn't even been released yet.

It's probably going to turn into a sh!tty game that everyone will forget in a few weeks after release and make you forget this was ever a big deal. Actually, the trailer is what made it a big deal and if the Devs wanted to get your attention, they sure did.

Tell me, you couldn't make that exact same trailer in GTA 4 or 5?? Heck, GTA could do that plus show him getting head in a car, then shortly after, killing the prostitute, and getting his money back. But that is OK right? Because every 12yr old kid on the planet bought the game when he asked his mother and she approved.

Is it because the dude wears a trench coat and it brings back thoughts of Columbine? Well there is a well too deep to dig into if you want to know how much media has been released since then in gaming and movie forms that bring back memories of Columbine.

I jumped on Thief for 7.50 at Humble Bundle. Sounds like a pretty good price on a game that I hear isn't as bad as made out to be.
Still have to find time to download all 22gb of it...

Was a fan of the original Thief back when it took my PC with 32mb of memory about 5 minutes to load the first level, lol.

Wasn't so much into the game when you had to dodge and hide from zombies as I preferred the medieval human element it had going originally.

Hopefully the new one brings some kind of memories of the original but I don't have my expectations set all that high.

GREAT GAME!

Not sure how well it holds up. I still own the original box and cd when I bought this game YEARS ago. One great gaming experience in it's day.

If nothing much holds up with this game, you can still appreciate the orchestrated music and awesome sound effects. Still remember that sound of running thru the snow and trying to get to the island with the big dinosaur at the water world location.

Good times...
