How are they doing a review of a game thats supposed to be released in Dec? Is that the correct date or is the site wrong on the release date?

And shouldn't this review be listed as an Early Access review?

C Engine, I'm pretty sure that still stands for the Chrome engine.

Motion Blur, I always turn that off, cant stand it.

The game looks good, more coop action on the way.

I dont understand why people keep giving them grief over ME 3. They had nothing to do with making that game, sure, they outsourced it, but that wasnt this teams game. This is the same Dev team that created ME 1 and 2. They did not make 3. So you guys are comparing apple to oranges here.

We all loved the original ME 1 and 2 so, I know this is going to be a good game too. You can see the amount of work thats already gone into the game.

ME:A, not ME3. The same team made ME 1, 2 and 3. A different team made ME:A.

And sure, they've put a lot of work into it, that doesn't mean it's going to be a good game. This is so far out of their wheelhouse, and it looks like they literally just copied and pasted bits from 3 or 4 different games to come up with this "It's like nothing you've ever played before!*"

* By this we mean it's exactly like a ton of shit you've played before.

Sorry, that is what I was referring to was the last ME game that released. it was not done by these guys making Anthem.

So, I don't understand some of the hate going on with this.

This is the same team who made those previous games that were really good. so that's what I'm trying to point out that with their track record I'm pretty sure this game will be good.

What the hell? How fucking weak are people these days if this constitutes a 'personal attack': Today in being a female game dev: "Allow me--a person who does not work with you--explain to you how you do your job."

and results in two people losing their jobs? Way to cave in to the trolls, ArenaNet.

Fucking social media...all these people getting into an uproar over the slightest difference of opinion, and then companies respond by firing people. Zero incentive for any actual creative content creators(for games, movies, etc.) to use social media, in my opinion; it can only go badly.


Cant agree with you more on this. Im so over this bullshit with the new whinny millennials and their politically correct bullshit.

This just kills me to no end, founders pack for a game thats 5 plus years old now and they tried put a new coat of paint on the game and called it enhanced. Yea!! Played the beta and was not impressed at all. I own the original and though there was better aspect in that one then this. the chars still run like they have a board up their ass.

Graphics did look better with the newer textures. but them trying to sell new classes for those of us who bought this game original years ago and are pretty much getting screwed over.

Huh. I'm not interested in a Bioware game. Either I'm getting old, or Mass Effect: Andromeda ruined the company for me.

The game looks awfully bland and uninteresting. I'll pick it up on a sale, maybe.
I've been seeing similar attitudes about this game. The whole thing with ME:A is going to cost them some day, week and month 1 sales. We'll see just how much when the launch happens.

Yeah, that's what I said about Andromeda too. I'm pretty damn sure this is final dialogue, not placeholder material.

IDK, I can ask my friend and see. But I tend to not worry to much about the dialog that much. Im more concerned with the game play aspects and fun factor. And its got Coop so that a big plus for me.

They've already said there is no trading loot between players. Perhaps not even between your own characters. :\

Im pretty sure there will some kind of shared stash. But I will make a suggestion to my friend who is working on this game.

Yawn. That's a solid pass for me. Maybe in a few years when it's 5 bucks and only if I have nothing else to play at the time.


Seriously dude, how are we supposed to play some Coop with that kind of attitude.

Im really looking forward to this game.

From my Steam review....

Great game. Runs incredibly well -unlike that fugly pig ARK. The world is amazing. It does have it's limitations however. It's devoid of anything to really do besides build. There are plenty of placeholders for where there should be content - dungeons specifically. The game desperately needs mounts and pets. Having the map teleporter end game - without mounts - is just stupid. It's a vast map and takes a long time to travel it on foot. They need a lot more variation in humanoid NPCs, and a lot more interactivity. Even building could use a lot more items to create. For example in the shelf category that's exactly it, one wooden shelf. That's all these is. So you're pretty limited in the decoration department.

In short it seems they spent most of the time world building and not enough putting items and NPCs and things to do. Or perhaps that was all part of the plan so as to release these other things as paid DLC. I won't mind that if the price is reasonable. The first DLC however is defintely overpriced - it's current $13CDN whereas I woulnt' pay more than $5CDN for it.

In spite of all these shortcomings it's still a fun and interesting game. The world building is really top notch and it's a pleasure to explore. It really feels spot on to the Conan lore. So for the 25'ish bucks it is on sale atm it's worth it if you like survival games. If they can deliver on these things this game will have incredible longevity.

--

Outside of that I've been making a list to post on the Funcom forums of things this game needs and general fixes. Quite enjoying it overall. Certainly got my money's worth so far.



Yep, I agree with your review. It to bad they dont do more to expand the world and have a lot more to do. Fun game, but definitely needs more work.

BTW, if you guys joined my server I've taken a lot of the grind in crafting out and have it sped up. Cutter can tell you that too since hes been playing on my server too.

Welp, there goes my interest.

GTA Online has this stuff figured out, so why doesnít an online-focused driving game that costs $60? Ubisoft says a December update will add PvP, but itís bewildering that they didnít launch the game with such basic multiplayer functionality.

DECEMBER! It's fucking JUNE, Ubisoft! "Hey, don't worry, we'll sort of make this into an actual game in six months or so."

Fuck these assholes.


I heard that the game is pretty boring, its really all about buying new cars and even that doesn't keep the interest levels up.

Before you get excited, other than the logo there is literally nothing of SQ42 in here.

Few thoughts:

- The whole thing just seems like a giant programmer circle jerk about what new cool tech they can come up with. "Look at the way the hand holds the can! That's so amazing!"

Yes. Yes, it is. It's also completely fucking pointless to be spending as much time on that as you guys seem to be doing. The animations weren't great before, so hey, let's just redo them! They have an old vs new comparison video, and I'm really hard pressed to see any difference, but they're acting like they went from NES level Mario to Last of Us 2 in animation. This is literally the world's biggest "Keep guys employed for doing very little" community funding gig.

- God that engine is an unoptimized piece of shit. They have an FPS counter going when the marine is walking through literally an empty room with no textures etc, and it's barely breaking 40fps. :\

Hey at least that opening space shot looked gorgeous.

The more I see of this POS game, the more pissed off I get.

Indeed. I will admit to purchasing some cosmetic items for PUBG. But I only spent a few dollars which I actually earned by SELLING cosmetic items for PUBG.

Im not telling anyone they shouldn't spend any money, but I have seen some that are very reckless with how they do it. to the point of it effecting their livelihood.

This is actually disgusting that people throw away their money so easily on virtual items. This was very obvious at E3 on how much Swag and all the free food they were giving away.

Especially the Freshly made Chocolate Chip cookies they were baking on site thought out the entire E3 experience.

I can answer that, I know for a fact that myself and many other want to have control over the servers and play the game without any PVP in the game at all. We want Coop only.

We dont want to deal with grifers and asshats who want nothing more then to build the Nuke and blow everything up. That is not the game play we want nor do we want to deal with that.
