News Comments > A Typo Broke Aliens Colonial Marines AI?

Another way to read this story is: "Gearbox did absolutely zero testing before shipping ACM, otherwise someone would have fucking found a simple typo bug."

I agree with that. There were similar issues with "Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines", the original game broke when you played a Nosferatu which showed that Activision never even tested that clan! Also a lot of dialogue options didn't work because someone wrote "Intimidation" instead of "Intimidate"...

Because Gabe doesn't need to and money is not Valve's motivation. They already have more money than stink and they're not greedy.

What? Did you forget about their payed-mods-initiative's and the failed Steam machines? Also they haven't made a decent game in years that wasn't based on someone elses ideas, because everything Valve cares about right now is money and they basically get it with little effort due to the monopoly of Steam. The more competition the better and maybe Valve will need to make real games some day again ;)!

News Comments > RAGE 2 Gameplay Trailer
10. Re: RAGE 2 Gameplay Trailer Jun 11, 2018, 09:04 Wesp5
 
I liked the first RAGE too, once my PC could handle the textures ;). But this sounds as if it doesn't care about the first game at all? You are the last Ranger when the first game ended with you opening all other arches? How could you loose everyone when you were frozen? You don't even play the guy from the first game so what happened to him in the cliffhanger? What happened to all other arches? This sounds like the Disney SW reboot, instead of delivering a real sequel with a changed setting, they quickly reset everything to the known one-against-all formula!

A setting similar to Babylon 5 would be perfect for this, it's like the middle ground between sterile ST and fantasy SW and hopefully with a good narrative like the show and not a lackluster ending like the cheap copy Mass Effect.

DeepShadows tried to do an open world SF RPG FPS long ago, it's called "The Precursors" and worth the money, although it's kind of unfinished...

No mentioning of Vampyr? Is this not selling well or what?

Summary: We will put everything on Steam regardless of quality or content because we want our cut! Except if the outcry is large enough to possibly hurt our sales, then we might react to it...

Guideline 1: We make money, you won't. Even if you want your app to be free, we will make some money with it. We are Apple!
Guideline 2: We don't care if your app is broken as long as guideline 1 is being followed. We are Apple!

I'm pretty sure at least these two guidelines apply to Steam as well! Remember Valve trying to sell free mods on Steam? Remember the broken greenlit rubbish or the old games that won't run at all unless you get them from GOG? Seems to me two walled-garden-wannabe-monopolists are fighting now!

Steam link is being locked out of Apple store because Apple considers it a gateway to the steam store.

Exactly, and it supports PC gaming as well which you can't do on Macs. So this was one wanna-be-monopolist against the other, no wonder they did it...

Do you mean employees? I highly doubt that, people will line up around the block to get in on that office.

Yeah, normal people might, who long for regular pay without much to do. But I don't think any creative mind that Valve had make something is still with them. Marc Laidlaw was the last to go, but I think the Counter-Strike guy or the Portal people have left long ago to make new games instead of just wasting time at Valve with nothing coming out of it...

Firewatch was just another walking simulator, I agree. But then look at the original demo of the team that Valve bought to make Portal! At least if they don't want to make some own games (HL3 confirmed!) they keep buying other teams to keep the fake image up that they are still a game developer and not just a game distributor.

When I read the title I thought for a second that someone had finally made a "Babylon 5" game after all these years :)! But no, so it's back to waiting for the update of "The Babylon Project"...

Hm, maybe this is connected to a lot of these indie walking simulators being about psychic issues like guilt, being left alone, having horrible dreams or memories?

Ha ha ha, Newell complaining about closed systems when he basically started it all by trying to make Steam the monopoly for PC games in the first place! Luckily we got alternatives like GOG in the meantime...

While I agree that some of the violence shown in the video is just too much for my taste, how come that in other countries where the same percentage of people play violent video games, less shootings occur? Because less people have weapons or they are better controlled, that's why...

I agree. This seems to be a typical indie walking simulator, always all other people have mysteriously vanished! Doesn't Unreal 4 and Unity 5 include some character prototypes and AI?

Also, Prey (2017) feels a lot like a modern System Shock 2 to me. I LOVE it and am surprised that it was not a success.

In my opinion System Shock 2 is overrated due to System Shock 1 nostalgia of many players. Games like Half-Life had already shown that you can have a great story without endless respawning enemies, playtime prolonging backtracking and always dead NPCs. While Prey 2017 did indeed remind me a lot of System Shock 2, it still had all it's faults so without nostalgia bonus it failed!

Wow, enother walking simulator where everyone else has mysteriously vanished! Isn't it possible even for AAA veterans to program some AI nowadays?

“Owen, you must hide this baby, at all costs, from Anakin Skywalker.”
“Okay. Should we continue to call him Luke Skywalker?”
“Seems fine.”


That's all the prequel's fault! I don't think it is ever mentioned in the original trilogy that Darth Vader's name was Skywalker. The way Obi Wan tells Luke about it in A New Hope it actually sounds as if his name is really Darth Vader, like first name Darth, no title, and last name Vader. So Luke could have been a born Luke Vader just hidden and renamed Skywalker...

So no one wants a linear single-player game anymore? Does anyone have numbers on how well the Doom and Wolfenstein remakes did? Because they were classical linear single-player shooters!

So two weeks after the game release the first DLC will be out. I hope this is free, otherwise it screams "we cut a piece out of the game to make more money" all over!
