There are no haystacks in Odyssey. Can you at least know what's in the game first before you criticize it? I've played EVERY AC game in the main series to the completion (except for Odyssey), so I like to think of myself as an authority on them.
So they are *leaf-piles* instead of haystacks now...

Guess again. The synchronization spots are varied. Many don't have leaps of faith because they're on top of huts or small building roofs. Others are on top of grand statues. Others on top of cliffs. Lots of variety. More so than any other AC game.

Also games that have the same name as the original always irked me. Need for Speed, Doom, Etc.. Can't you come up with something new?

The reality is most people are stupid and most game companies are conservative.

There's something wrong with you.

We got our CE on Tuesday and I've been playing it every night since. It's fun, but honestly after about 15 hours I can say that I liked Origins better. I feel like there were more things to do and the quests were more interesting. Also, combat on normal is much harder in Odyssey. And I get that they are going in an RPG direction for some reason, but the dialogue choices make it seem like Alexios does not have half the personality that Bayek or Etzio did.

Try replaying as Cassandra. She's more charming!

More towers, more haystacks. ‘nuff said.

My biggest complaint with Odyssey (at the moment at least) is the incredible amount of dynamic content. It makes it hard to know when a region completed. Perhaps "Exploration mode" was the Dev's answer to lessen the map confusion. However, at some point, I stopped taking those missions, and the misc quests have cleared themselves out.

I do like the way they implemented bounty hunters. Their AI feels more realistic than from Origins. First, they travel around the land looking for you! Yeah, like real-life bounty hunters they hunt you. They also don't only travel the road. They will cross the country and visit places that you think they wouldn't. Sometimes two BHs will appear and they will work together. When they chase after you they will tail you for twice the distance as regular mobs. So it can get hairy at times.

I didn't mean "Steal" in the literal sense, I mean "reduce the funding for overload". AKA many people funding DU didn't grasp that the real descent developers were not making DU.

I understand what you mean with regards to Overload. The issue you have isn't about trademark ownership and more about how poorly the Revival Productions devs have marketed Overload. That has nothing to do with Descendent Studios. Though, I think Descendent Studios should at least mention them out of respect to the original creators of the IP.

Suppa7 wrote on Oct 5, 2018, 17:48:
A team with no past experience making descent and thereby if they fuck it up ruining or tarnishing the IP.

They worked on Wing Commander, Freelancer, Strike Commander, and many other 6DoF-like titles. They have the experience.

Suppa7 wrote on Oct 5, 2018, 17:48:
AKA descent got more funds because the star citizens guys got the trademark therefore the REAL developers didn't get as much money as they could have used to build a better descent.

They didn't get the trademark. Interplay's CEO licensed the IP to them. Interplay owns the brand.

Suppa7 wrote on Oct 5, 2018, 17:48:
AKA the people who really should have gotten that money didn't because of bad timing, so yeah the DU kickstarter ultimately hurt overload.

Revival Productions haven't received the IP because they've demanded ownership from the rightful owners: namely Interplay. Interplay published all three of those titles and is the rightful owner of it. It's they who gets to chose who gets to create a game with the Descent title, and they chose Descendent Studios.

It's a black-and-white issue.

The reality is this project stole the money, thunder and name the descent devs could have used. Almost nobody knows overload was released and the original devs only got 300K while the DU team got 600K. I was pissed that devs from star citizen basically stole the thunder for a descent remake because they were first and they had somehow gotten the descent trademark.

The reality is NO ONE stole anything. Eric Peterson's studio legally acquired The Descent name, likeness, and so forth from the CEO of Interplay who rightfully owns the IP. That's fair and legal.

I followed this project for years. It's a shame nothing came of it. He seems close to alpha: the engine is in good shape, the AI and economy we're coming along. In the end his reach exceeded his grasp. Hopefully a team of talented modders can finish this up. There's still potential here.

I watched the pitch vid, and I kept saying, "Please don't be a teen. Please don't be a teen." It would be way too easy to explain the issues. All the intelligence and programming smarts in the world do not account for knowledge and experience required to produce video games (and all the more so for procedurally generated on a proprietary engine). "When I began this project, I felt that anything was possible. Here now, at the end, I must swallow the painful reality that: I, too, am human. I am limited by time, I am limited by finances, and I am limited by mental & emotional stamina." This statement sums up the ignorance of most teens and young people today who think anything is possible but remain too ignorant to realize that they can't. It's maddening because had he pitched this as a hobby project with an optional donation via Paypal or Patreon that would be one thing, but he did this with other people's money. No, he didn't scam people. However, let's be real: he pitched a product, people paid for the product promised by him. They didn't pay for source code. I guess what I'm saying is in certain situations, crowdfunding is a terrible choice for both backers and creators.

There really is no one better than JAB. Most of the veterans, save Allen Adham, have left Blizzard.

That said, the direction Blizzard has taken WOW over the past decade remains a love/hate thing for me.

I LOVE the ample QOL additions and features they added over the years including extensive improvements to the engine to make it run super fast and smooth on today's hardware.

I HATE the move/push towards eSports in Blizzard's current crop of titles. JAB infamously told a fan at a BlizzCon when he asked about vanilla, "You think you do, but you don't" demonstrating a total disconnect between what the players want and want the dev's want. JAB has been the face for the Classic server since its announcement, so perhaps much was learned by him and the devs from their meeting with Nostalrius in 2016.

If nothing else with JAB as the president, Blizzard will continue to run smoothly for the foreseeable future.
