Where are you from Quinn? Your cops don't even have guns and you are....

C'mon man. You have zero first hand experience with the policing here in the US? Really? I...I guess from your posts I you always sound so self-certain I somehow missed all of this. I literally though...well, nvm. It doesn't matter. I guess I am just too "emotional".

Looks interesting. I wonder if this is meant to be a prequel to BF2142 (and an eventual remake of that game). In any case, I don't think I'll be getting this at release as a pre-order - I've felt like a DICE betatester ever since BF3. Every single release is bugville.

The main downside (which may not be a downside to everyone else) obviously being how all these games are progession based with unlocks, so I will likely feel overwhelmed. The vehicle upgrade path, for example, in BFV felt incredibly gated and annoying - most of which had upgrades (like on tanks) that were clearly better than everything else. I never go to use the Stuka with anti-tank cannons because I could never level that particular one up.

MP games are now in this Era of waving bananas on a stick to take advantage of our monkey brains.

I hate gun unlocks and grinding for levels (for things that aren't just cosmetic).
Overwatch and Valorant don't have that and are all the better for it.
Competitive MP games should never have progression based items... configurable loadouts are fine if everyone has everything available all the time.

Wasn't there just recently an announcement that the original Painkiller devs were working on a new IP?

edit: I guess it was this in 2020 that I was thinking of:
https://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=viewthread&boardid=1&threadid=213494
and the unannounced game ended up being this new Painkiller game.

But there's also this from earlier in 2020:

The PC variant has been running more clunky as of late, makes me wonder what's already been tweaked under the hood.

Really? I play just about daily, haven't noticed this.

... Do you guys really not know that the previous Battlefield has a Battle Royale mode?

I don't really care if they choose to have one or not this time around... but the speculation in these comments about what that would be like is weird

The previous BF's had something more or less like BR too... played it to death way before it was cool to do so ;p Gunpoint or what it was called... 1 life, every kill a new weapon.. was cool

That's the Gun Game mode
My favorite game mode of all time... but specifically in CS:Source... I played in community run Gun Game servers for like 15 years straight or more.
My particular favored variety of those mods is GG DM Turbo.
"DM" means that you instantly respawn, not round based and "Turbo" means you get your next gun immediately instead of next round or respawn.
Typically you go in order of biggest guns to smallest and then you need to get a grenade kill and a knife kill, typically the hardest parts if you're a decent shooter anyway.
Most server double that up and you actually go through all the guns twice, once "forward" and then again in "reverse" with nade/knife in middle as well as at the end.

I played CS:GO's official GunGame mode too which is called Arms Race, but I definitely prefer the mods and community servers of CS:S.
Here are some videos of mine:
2008: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkgnxB3MHok
2012: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATu3_bCaZUo (much more chaotic, tons of players... this server is still around and I still play here)
2012: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4Df2ZMfPxE (CS:GO Arms Race launch, bunch of bots because GO wasn't even popular at launch, came many years later)

BF5's Battle Royale is called Firestorm and it's actually a pretty damn good Battle Royale.
64 players, solos, duos, or squads... biggest map ever in BF... map size larger than Apex Legends, CoD:Blackout, a bit smaller than the largest PUBG maps but bigger than the smaller PUBG maps.

Considering how bad the auto-aim is on the PC anyway how much worse will it be to compensate for console gamers.

Did you say that backwards?


edit: Relevant part from the FAQ:
Will console aim-assist be enabled when I match up with a PC player?
No. Console aim-assist will be disabled by default if you group up with a PC player to equalize play during the match.

If you're not away, Overwatch on PC has some major auto aim (go check out Hanzo and his headshot hitbox videos in the Google Lands).

"not away" ?
It doesn't have auto aim... with the exception of Soldier's ultimate which is literally an aimbot.
Hanzo's arrow projectiles have large hitboxes and they collide with large hitboxes of player characters in the game as intended. They're not auto aim.

This seems to signify that updates will become less frequent from here on out.
One of the reasons there wasn't cross-platform play previously was because PC was able to get updates faster and more often than consoles and they didn't want to hold that back.

I dream of the day a game is released on a PC storefront and the comments aren't about the storefront instead of the game.

Then again my memory is shit, I'd be willing to bet 12 years ago every other comment section was people bitching about a game being release on Steam instead of good old Wal*Mart or Gamestop.

It actually used to be worse. There were whole accounts that did nothing but write Steam diatribes all day every day for years.
Sometimes one of them still shows up spouting off arguments and terminology from 15 years ago.

Sure there are a few people that come close to that description now, but they post about other things too.
Back then it was like 10 of these guys where that was their sole thing and another 50 where it was a side gig.

is this the first time Ken's name was prominently displayed on a game, rather than Roberta's?

it's been a while since i read Hackers but as i recall Roberta was the real creative while Ken busied himself with making unfortunate financial decisions.

still, i'll be interested in checking it out. sierra's games were a bit before my time, i've always meant to check out Roberta's back catalogue.

According to the FAQ Roberta isn't doing much on this game...
"So far, her involvement has been important, but minimal. She was the original inspiration for the game, and has been consulted almost daily. But, in terms of hours spent in front of a computer it is 99% Marcus and myself. We’ve been filling all spare time 7 days a week. Roberta will get more and more involved as we get closer."

Don't think so. They spoke out in support of Space Quest's Two Guys From Andromeda Kickstarter, but I don't believe they had one.
You're right, I think I was confused with Jane Jensen from Gabriel Knight series... and probably that blurb from Andromeda since I was backing those at about the same time.

Wow to take this even further... I just learned that Jane Jensen actually worked on KQ6 with Roberta Williams as "co-designer".
That's my favorite one too! Never realized they made it together.

It will be interesting to remember how to design actual games, and not simply tools designed to generate income via a paid 'hint' system. Sierra adventures were an exercise in diminishing returns from the moment they went public until the moment they got handed off from CUC International to Vivendi. There were a few outliers like the first Gabriel Knight game, but most of the post 1989 output was hot garbage.
Didn't Sierra games have a paid hint line? Or am I remembering wrong? There was basically no internet when these games came out but 900 lines were a thing.

Yes, for a time.
So did Nintendo at one point.
