Boomer! wrote on Sep 20, 2022, 14:50:You dont like the art style? Fine. Thats ok. I'm also not very fond of it. But you use technical, pseudo objective arguments "Its 2022 ..." you describe your personal taste. And that's stupid.
Points should be deducted due to poor graphics. Low poly isn't an "art style", it's just bad graphics period. It's 2022, good gameplay expected and good graphics assumed.
eRe4s3r wrote on Aug 7, 2022, 04:27:Their strategy is to gobble up every market niche the majors have left because they were too small for the BIG GLOBAL BUSINESS, where selling 8 mio units of a game is a commercial dissapointment. Embracer is what 20 years ago were middle class publishers like THQ, who made good money, but werent even close to the gargantuan revenues of EA or Activision.
Conceptually the entire Embracer Group is still a mystery though, do they actually have a plan for each studio? Or do they just throw money at a random wall and look what sticks to it?
Mr. Tact wrote on Aug 4, 2022, 16:04:Not really. The remaining Koch distanced himself from the Tea Party Movement, regrets what they did to the US only to save a few tax dollars.
But I'm pretty sure they have setup their company/trust/whatever such that it will continue to try to fuck up the US for decades to come, so they both still get the blame...
Mr. Tact wrote on Aug 4, 2022, 14:59:Brother. Only one left.
Haha, yep. Came here to find out what the Koch brothers were up to...
Dev wrote on Jul 30, 2022, 22:16:Yup. Valve isnt a publicly traded company, there is no duty to report, there are no investors you have to impress, no need to spin bad news into something positive.
Valve doesn't have a big history of trying to lie and deceive like a lot of other companies.
Osc8r wrote on Jun 25, 2022, 18:12:I blame the lack of guns in the paws and hoofes of the "enemy". And lack of PvP in a hunting game, so you cant pepper the behind of your buddies with a few bullets. That's not huntin'!!
There's definitely a lack of hunting games out there, ...
Necrophob wrote on Jun 16, 2022, 09:38:For me it was the games tendency to spawn enemies right next to you, when you wanted to rest. Down on health and mana, seeking refuge in an empty room, closing the door, going to sleep and *bäng* a Bowman suddenly stands in the corner, killing me with one shot. That was fun ...
My inability to hit a damn rat is killing me.
RedEye9 wrote on May 5, 2022, 14:24:The problem with Valves own expectations right there ... good with potential for more wasnt good enough. Every new project had to be groundbreaking, outclassing anything else from the start. A fun, solid game which would make good money and give players a good time? Meh!
That and probably many other reasons are why Valve dropped it.
RogueSix wrote on May 2, 2022, 17:17:Little? The last two addons for Titan Quest were announced in a short tweet by the developers themselves the day of their release. Thats how you make profit. Make content for franchises with a dedicated following, adjust your budget accordingly, do not spend anything on marketing because you dont have to convince this niche = profit!
Nothing? That is the secret to their success. They spend relatively little on marketing.
bhcompy wrote on Apr 6, 2022, 11:56:No. Way harder. Standing still means death. Getting too close to enemies means death. You are not playing a heavily armoured tank, but a physically fragile woman. Keep your distance, but no too far away, because these critters are good in dodging your ranged spells. Of which you have limited ressources. Protections spells are good, but are depleted FAST, when you let yourself getting hit all the time.
So... it plays like the mage in Hexen?

And yet Mar-a-Lardo gets away with it. So sad.
LordSteev wrote on Feb 18, 2022, 07:37:These days never existed. Gaming ALWAYS was big business, even before Atari was bought by Warner in 1976.
God, I long for the olden days. Back when shareholders had nothing to do with making games.
Mr. Tact wrote on Feb 17, 2022, 08:27:It is correct. You might not have a problem with that, which is fine, but NMS really IS a bundle of features on top of bad foundation.
But saying it isn't a coherent game is simply incorrect.
Overon wrote on Feb 16, 2022, 16:15:Its not. They clearly were inspired by Doom 2016. If you like that, all good. If not ... well ... in a sale perhaps?
I hope it is more like Shadow Warrior 1 without the looter shooter bullshit.
Pr()ZaC wrote on Feb 17, 2022, 05:35:A few things were finally integrated like multi-player, but we all are still looking for the planets we were shown in the trailers. And there is no faction warfare in space, corporates vs. players. vs. sentinels or whatever.
Has the game delivered what was promised at launch?
El Pit wrote on Jan 9, 2022, 12:17:*sigh* Germans are easily able to buy and play non-german versions of this game.
I hope it is 500 hours of the censored German version! Just to promote how great the game is for the many German hippies who play games where they kill zombies (or sit down with them to talk about their aggressive behavior).
theglaze wrote on Jan 6, 2022, 14:10:A static, one (!) time picture of two people standing in public space, one of them a wanted criminal is NOT surveillance, its a lucky incident.
Cool, another case solved by a corporation cataloging the public domain and it's citizens, then being used by law enforcement as a big brother surveillance program that skips over all the privacy and protection rights of the citizens it seeks to protect.
