News Comments > Uwe Boll's Rampage
17. Re: Uwe Boll's Rampage Mar 31, 2018, 11:24 Darks
 
Rampage is being made from the original game year before Uwe Boll movies. if anything I think its Midway Games I believe who owns the rights to that game should be suing his ass off for infringement.

This is just a pathetic attempt on his part to get money because hes broke ass dick.

Ugh, another "do it as fast as you can or you get jack shit!" mode. Yay.

Exactly, I'm so tired of this kind of force you to run and gun timed bullshit. I love the game and all, but this is a skip for me. I wont waste my time on this kind of nonsense.

And on top of that, they are telling you the faster you do it the better the loot is. Yea, Right! I've seen this bullshit before, an the loot is usually not that much better.

So, no word on this being an update for those who already own it? or are they trying to strong arm everyone into buying this pos again?

Don't you just love it when someone posts fps and "everything maxed" but fails to mention system specs.
quad 1080Ti

If you didn't get max on that set up, I'd get my money back lol
He even gets max on his power bill!

That wasn't Darks replying though xD

I see the dumb asses are out in full force this morning.

Blue,
I think your cert is expiring today.

Seems like a very fair and equitable offer, definitely not one sided. And Stardock probably would have been open to negotiating it too, instead of taking it straight to lawyers.

fawker wrote on Mar 23, 2018, 18:46:
If you don't have the original characters in the game, it's not star control.
Sure it is. Stardock said they would have things occur in a different area of the universe, with new aliens, and none of the original out of respect to Paul & Fred (and possibly legal reasons).

I se three possible outcomes:
1) It wouldn't surprise me if P&F entirely lost all rights if they don't have everything perfectly documented to support the claims they are coming up with (which is unlikely given the stickiness of this IP rights), and in that case they will be left with nothing and I doubt stardock will be willing to let them do anything after this debacle. That would suck, I'd rather see and buy two star control type games.
2) Stardock loses everything... but then P&F fail to produce anything for another decade or ever, because they are soured on all of this from the legal dispute, I mean look at their track record of letting this sit idle.
3) Status quo, both sides have something, and end up where they already are... and worse for the wear because of expenses and other things. I still suspect P&F wouldn't release anything.


Ya I wondering if i was just me,I keep getting cert error that site is unsafe.

Prez, Quantum Break isnít multiplayer, so it can be transferred elsewhere. Itís also not made by an internal Microsoft studio.

Fair enough - you're probably right. If there is any game that would make me try the Windows Store again it would probably be State of Decay 2 given how much I enjoyed the first one. I guess we'll see.

Already pre-ordered it. I've been waiting on this game for a long while. The main issue I have with Win 10s store is how it installs the games. It will completely lock down the install folder denying you access to it. Thats such busllshit that MS did that. but I know what Im doing so I unlocked that shit.

This game is going to be DOA unless they add some sort of progression.
It's not competitive enough to stand on it's own without it. So if you're going to have dudes sailing all over the place for hours to collect chests and skulls there better be a reason to do it other than cosmetic unlocks.

I think as you say in your second post, this will have a lot of people bail due to lack or progression. That said, I think the game can absolutely survive for a long time and I hope it does. Sometimes silly cosmetic stuff is all it takes to survive.

Not everything has to have progression after all, games have existed without it basically since forever. Now you are right that competition often filled in there, but that still isn't always the case.

No, this game wont. the only way it will is if its completely free. I played the beta and got sick of it really quickly. enough to know that im not spending one single red cent on this pos shit game.

It got really boring fast, and trying to turn in chest with guys just standing there waiting for you and ships parked off shore just bombarding the area got pathetic.

And as Numinar pointed out, there just isn't enough content to keep peoples attention or motivate you.

I backed this based off their delivered products before with kickstarter.. I don't think I'll be disappointed.

So, if you backed it then you should have been playing the beta.

If not then why? The beta has been available to anyone who backed the game.

I'm a gun owner. I hunted as a kid/young adult. I play a metric shit ton of video games.

School shootings are either a gun problem....or a mental health problem. All of you 'thoughts and prayers' fucknuts know this. So get off your fucking stick and either we go with revamping healthcare or we revamp gun control. Moving either one a few steps toward a modern/rational solution would do wonders. You can't have *both* being a shitshow designed to benefit corporations.

You sound like you had about the same up bringing that I had. I did all those things too. this is a mental issue and nothing else.

kids are not disciplined anymore and they are out of control. thank the CPS for this. They went over board on over protecting kids and not allow patents to discipline their kids. thank you social media.

Never quite liked GD, because of the truly god-awful drop rates. Legendaries are supposed to start dropping at 50. I finally quit at 67, when the game had dropped exactly 1 legendary (by the final boss, which is ALWAYS a legendary) and it was one I couldn't use at all. Why devs continue to insist on absolutely fucking retardedly low drop rates, I'll never understand.

Grim Dawn makes Borderlands 2 look downright generous in comparison.

I did play it again with a mod that

A) Massively upped the drop rates
B) Gave you like 3 or 5 skill points per level

but to make up for it, it also continuously increased the monster spawns as you leveled up. By the time I reached level ~ 60 with that, the entire screen would be filled with critters. It was actually a lot of fun, until the engine finally croaked on the thousands of spawns it was asked to create.

In any case, I got ashes of malmouth and thought it was pretty mediocre, so I'm definitely giving this a pass.

I had pretty much the same problem, for a SP game this game is utterly shit when it comes to itemization and loot. I actually KS'd the game originally and dropped it cold and hard after reaching level 50 and never finding a single usable legendary till then, not ONE.

NOT ONE

That would be just your dumb luck then, I've got a few chars over level 65 and I have them fully outfitted with legendary items.

Dont believe me, then join me in a steam game, Ill prove it and even drop you a few items to keep if you like.



We can always meet up in D3 Torment 12

I play D3 every so often, im around paragon 1200 something. My brother who is a fanatic for this game and in the best guild you can be in is over 3000 paragon.

You can add me in Battlenet if you like, I play a demon hunter as my main and a few other support toons too.
