Anything with a '3' after the title would be a landmark event for Valve. If anything, it would be DOTA 3 though...

The Korean War would be a new setting. But there weren't any Brits fighting Germans so I don't see how this could be new. Unless like someone suggested it is going to be an alternate universe.

If the amount of women I know who watch house-flipping shows on HGTV and DIY is any indication, it's possible that a large segment of 'House Flipper''s buyers are female. Just a guess though.

I am not willing to forgive them putting the game out as pay-to-win with gambling boxes then only walking it back once the money started to dry up. It's a no sale for me at any price.

Pay to win in an easy single player game? lol. The loot boxes were there for people that have more money then sense. Was it ever really a factor? Just ignore it and play the game. But go save the world, why not.

There is a multiplayer component, in which the player with more legendary orcs in their army has a distinct advantage, which means that through the gambling mechanic someone could pay for an advantage. And despite what people say about "Just ignoring" the gambling aspect, Monolith itself admitted that having it ruined the nemesis system and devalued much of the gameplay in singleplayer. They had to patch the game once microtransactions were taken out to make the end game less of a grind and more fulfilling. That doesn't sound to me like the Mordor Casino was ever meant to be "just optional" to me. My feeling is that Monolith never wanted the market in there to be begin with and removed them as soon as their evil shithead overlords Warner Bros allowed them to take them out.

We don't get too many singleplayer games that aren't from small indies these days so I'll take what I can get. I've already preordered this game, which is something I never do. Any port in a storm.

"The Hungering Deep"? Shouldn't it be called a "A Small Slice of the Rest of the Game"?

There's an FOV slider on the first page of the options screen. This was added via patch months ago.

Definitely a good game, everything from the first title just cranked up a few notches. Now that the loot boxes are a non issue...

You generally don't think of FOV in a third person game, but set wrong as a default and it can make you feel like you can't see half of what you should be able to. The last 3rd person game that had me frustrated by its claustrophobic FOV was the original Dead Space when it first launched on PC. Luckily you could fix it with a config file change.

Looking forward to diving into this now now that it is a proper game and not a vector for gambling revenue and microtransacrions.

News Comments > Shenmue III Release Date Shen-Moved
2. Re: Shenmue III Release Date Shen-Moved May 16, 2018, 12:30 Prez
 
This project has seemed shady from the start. A kickstarer despite having publisher backing, the way the carrot was dangled in front of backers saying they need more money every time they reached their funding goal, the overall seemingly extremely small funding goals given the scope of a game like Shenmue and judging by what Shenmue 2 cost to make... It has just smelled off since it was first annoumced. Still, for the sake of long-suffering Shenmue fans I hope this game is good.

Expectations are getting "out of hand"? Wtf does that even mean? All we expect is that they continue to keep the Borderlands series, the one thing Gearbox has going for it and hasn't fucked up yet, at the same level of quality and entertainment. Or is Randy Pitchford disappointed that he can't outsource the production to another subpar studio like he did with Aliens Colonial Marines? Randy needs to stop talking to the press and stay off social media. As for people not believing Randy Pitchford, can you blame them? The guy is kind of a dishonest douche.

I really want this kickstarer to succeed but I just can't bring myself to use kickstarer again. Too many shady or mismanaged projects have just soured me on the concept, which is a real shame, because in the beginning kickstarer resulted in us getting great games that the big publishers lost interest in long ago.

News Comments > Boss Key Closed
37. Re: Boss Key Closed May 15, 2018, 11:03 Prez
 
To those claiming that those of us who dislike Blezinski are over-emotional haters I might remind you that Blezinski by his own admission has been a dick most of his professional life.

In an interview with Gamespot, the game designer served up a rather frank theory as to why his latest game’s difficulty attracting and retaining players: his own personality might be turning people off. “You know, I have to keep this game alive, first and foremost,” he said. “I can be very cocky and very brash on social media. And realizing that, you know, we have a fledgling player base. It’s been very humbling for me. I’m going to continue to iterate on this game, continue to add to it. And try to be less of a dick, honestly.”

Normally if a guy genuinely owns up to his character flaws I am the first to forgive him, but clearly his latest bout of humility was only brought about by his realization that his career-long antics were proving to be a liability in a market he was hoping to come back to. Again, I may not like him, but I respect his talent and accomplishments and am saddened to see his career end like this if this indeed is the end for him.

The piracy comment he made was undeniably douchey, but that isn't why I personally have disliked him for years. For me it has always been his cavalier, gangster attitude that he tried to push while grabbing the spotlight for saying stupid shit about a market that made him the quasi-celebrity he is once it appeared it was no longer going to be of any use to him. Then coming back to ride the wagon when it turned out he was wrong - that kind of personifies the cynical, shit-talking, fad-hopping opportunist he is. All that said, his talent as a designer and the mark he left on the industry are undeniable; it's just a shame he couldn't just shut his mouth and make games.

This really should have been done after the failure of Lawbreakers and before Radical Heights ever became a thing. At least Boss Key could have bowed out with some dignity. "Hey, we made a solid game, but it just didn't catch on". Instead, they releases a desperate, sad little pre-alpha me-too game doomed from the start that just made them look pathetic. As much as I dislike Blezinski, it's kinda sad to see him go down like this.
