great
cant wait for this fad to die off
players should spend their money and time elsewhere

You don't like the game, so no one else should play it?

Why make an ARPG out of the 40k Inquisitor IP?

I'd give my left eye, Odin-style, for a 40k game where I got to play an Inquisitor, build a team and go on missions to purge the heretic and xenos filth in tactical-RPG fashion.

GW's too stupid for that though...

News Comments > PUBG Testing New Crates

Cosmetic item crates in PUBG are stupid anyway.

Literally as soon as you drop into a map, as you are running around looking for a pistol in a 3 story apartment building, and while you only find a crossbow, there are 8 pairs of pants laying on the ground in lieu of other weapons, which due to the crappy netcode you actually pick up when you resign yourself to using the crossbow and the ammo is laying on said pants, dropping your swanky crate-pants for some white camo pants that clash with your dirty wife-beater. Uh oh, now you've got a clashing outfit that you are going to die in!!!!

If you are playing PUBG because you like grinding and opening crates, you are doing it wrong, and there are other games that will more effectively cater to your crate fetish.

Based on some info, I am skeptical their engine is what they claim to be, and there is some question about some of the assets origin.

What info would that be?

My squad has been winning a bunch lately.
I got my first solo win last week.
On another forum I have friends posting win screenshots daily.
I only encountered an obvious cheater once in the 166 hours and it was a month or so ago.

But I also play at weird times so maybe it's not lining up with either U.S. or Chinese prime times.

You won't see the Chinese cheaters/farmers/scripters in team matches. The BP/game ratio isn't worth it for the time involved. You can just put 4 Chinese farmer accounts in solo, and net much more BP/hour than splitting it in the squad matches.

What really sucks is now every game here on out will have to be battle royale.

Not a fan.

I don't think 'every' game will be a battle royal, but PUBG has highlighted the fact that there is a market for it. Even without the farming and cheating accounts from China, the numbers are still impressive for a game that has as many problems as it does in its current state.

In the next two years, some other dev will make a better version and PUBG will end up a victim of its own success in the long run.

Games Workshop could literally make hundreds of millions of dollars licensing the 40k IP to successful developers, but they are so paranoid about impacting their over-priced miniature sales, that the only license it to shovelware devs.

Exactly. They should sell the license to EA and make millions selling pay2win dlc... Right?

Right...because EA is the only option for non-shovelware game development.

I wanted to like Pillars of Eternity, but the it just couldn't hold my attention. The characters and the story were 'Ok' in the generic fantasy book type way, but the combat/gear setup drove me insane.

I'm about 80% through the vanilla game, my characters are maxed out, I have two floors of the keep dungeon left, and I've only completed one of the companion backstory quests.

Haven't picked up Tyranny, was waiting for 75% off or greater.

You will probably end up liking Tyranny more, honestly, if that's your feelings on PoEt. Tyranny definitely has better writing and much more memorable characters, excellent magic system, if a bit simplified in the combat due to the smaller party setup. Max out your LORE stat at all times, every character. Lore is insanely important in Tyranny for casting.

Tyranny is also a lot shorter game, definitely a tighter focus, deliberately on Obsidian's part. The gear situation in Tyranny is... slightly better than PoEt? I don't know what in particular you didn't like in Pillars about the gear, aside from probably the grinding requirements on Soulbound weapons, but Tyranny's gear is pretty straight forward, with a lot better options for crafting exactly what you want.

It doesn't matter much now, since both games have been patched a ton, but Tyranny was also remarkbly almost bug free on release day, pretty much unheard of for Obsidian.


Another Alpha Protocol game would be awesome; I loved that in spite of the bugs back in the day, but I would put money on them making Tyranny 2. Their Tyranny team and engine is ready to go, although I HOPE and assume they will bump the party up to 5, on par with PoEt 2. The Tyranny universe has a ton of story material available for a sequel.

Gear was forgettable and other than having something, there was no reason to chase down a recipe or a save up money for to buy anything. My fighter was using the same weapon from level 5 when I maxed him out at 9, and hadn't swapped out armor in forever either. Most of my party ended up that way if I recall. The uniques in most cases weren't even as powerful as basic enchantments.

Yeah, we haven't even seen a trailer for SQ 42. Seems odd given that the voice work was all done two years ago as well as that first level. Two years should be enough time to get that campaign mostly complete.

I never did play WC4. Maybe I'll play that over the weekend.

Hasn't SQ42 now shifted from a space flight sim like wing commander, to some sort of pseudo-fps with some ship-to-ship combat?

Sorry I can't get past the whole "spending $45k on a game" part to even think about the legitimacy of the refund claim. Mobile app developers would love to have this whale/person(s?).

While I think it's pure insanity, the number isn't that much if it is split up amongst an entire clan. Let's say 25 people, $1,800 a piece. I wouldn't buy into it, but there are are a fair amount of SC backers with that much or more invested in the game.

I did run into a mission last night where I had to hack into a network on one of the new sewer maps...I had I think 8 turns to reach it and do the hack. I noticed on turn 2 that the game decided it wanted to start you the furthest corner from the objective...all while I was doing the normal 2 forward to overwatch, 2 sprint movement. I was being extra cautious because it was a sewer and full of tunnels and this was a rookie team..didn't make the objective because it literally took me 7 turns to actually reach the same area as the objective with the rookies sprinting instead of being more cautious due to the tunnels.

Surmise to say, I didn't make the hacking objective...and honestly, I don't think it was possible considering that even if I were to have sprinted with the entire squad, it would've taken at least 5 turns to reach the same area only to find out that it was crawling with a squad of 5 Advent and 2 Sectoids. I seriously doubt fresh recruits could've downed that in less than 3 turns, or even been able to handle attempting to hack it under fire.

Why are you sending out squads made up entirely of rookies?

Star Citizen will never be 'finished'; not in the classical use of the term in reference to software development. At some point in the future they may ship something that is vaguely similar to the game they proposed in the original Kickstarter, but at their current development rate, they will never get all of the promised features working in a single product.

I guess this means Splash Damage wants to make a game that will be worse than Dirty Bomb?

Dirty Bomb was made in collaboration with Nexon, which certainly doesn't rate any better than Wargaming...

Dirty Bomb still turned out to be a good game though. It just needs more work (mainly bug fixing and additional content). A bit silly that it's still in beta after so many years, but that beta tag is unfortunately still warranted.

The concept was ok, their execution is where they failed at producing a successor to Quake Wars. The microtransaction-grind of Dirty Bomb doomed it from the get go in trying to compete directly with Team Fortress 2.

I'd be interested in how the bank valued the Squadron 42 IP as collateral. How did they separate it from the Star Citizen framework and give it an accurate valuation, without at least having the art concepts and underlying engine for both games tied into what RSI is considering the Squadron 42 IP?

Well, Sunless Sea has some brilliant writing in it, surprisingly.

That's got me at least mildly interested in what the next Dragon Age game could be, although I probably won't bother getting it before it hits the bargain bin.


Disclaimer: I loved Dragon Age:Origins, played through it a couple times, considering another run through in the near future. However, I skipped Dragon Age 2 entirely, and can't even force myself to finish DA:Inquisition, too MMO-ish or something for me.


I'm in the same boat. DA:Inquisition quests feel meaningless, there's no drive to actually complete them, and no sense of satisfaction in doing so.
