Disappointing, the original Prey 2 trailer of him as a bounty Hunter was so much better. This looks nothing like anything Prey related at all.

This is what looked badass.

It looks interesting, but not a fan of the Pinata effect of baddies exploding and raining health and armor.

Just use your imagination. Armor is pretty easy, you can collect it off of your fallen enemies. As for health, in a lot of fantasy lore, demon blood often gives power to those who consume it, so just imagine it is healing you after killing them.

If you don't use your imagination to explain things away, the overwhelming majority of Fantasy and Science Fiction makes no sense whatsoever.

No to mention armor doesn't drop off enemies unless you use a specific rune, and the health and ammo drops are pretty rare unless you use glory kills, which can be mostly ignored.

Not to mention the plot is that you were found imprisoned in Hell because you're basically a demon killer sent from the Heavens. That killing demons is what keeps you alive and fuels you for more killing demons makes sense.

I think most people disliked the concept when watching videos, but when actually playing, you come around quickly. It keeps the flow so wonderful.

The heavens? Nowhere does it imply that. The hyperbolic verse is just to show how much hell feared him. The general consensus is that the player character is either the Doom marine after he got stuck in hell after Doom 3 RoE (Or possibly Doom 2 if you fudge the ending a bit) or that he was the last member of those Templar knights avenging his fallen civilization (Or possibly both, the Doom marine might've joined up with them beforehand, as they'd have had the same goals).

The point is, Hell fears the Doom Marine. Hoorah!! Crush those Demons Marine!

There's a program out there called Never 10. Works great, gets rid of Win 10 even if it's queued up for install.

In the end this game is still shit.

The game and game mechanics of the game are just fine, but they really painted themselves in a corner story wise.
The Story is quite believable until you get to the Last Man Battalion which is some sorta army of average citizens, except the have APC's Humvee's, beyond high end military hardware (talking Bruce Wayne sorta shit) and no government agencies thought they might look into this group?

Imagine Gotham City in the last Batman movie (cut off from the outside world) and somehow in the city of New York there is a private army that has (again) Bruce Wayne level of tech just showing up out of the blue.

The main problem of this game is the hacking and exploiters which chased many players away including myself. I loved the game when it was fun and not full of hackers.

Another issue is the Dark Zone is way to small. If it was twice the size for players to run around and not have to run into every asshole cheating so the players could enjoy the content there. Then maybe it might be a much better experience.

But in its current state. its just to small and not enough in game content to keep me coming back to re-grind the DZ over and over.

I love this, the developer admits that the game has performance issues. But on the steam forums, you should see how many rabid fans to defending the game and saying people are full of shit and the game doesn't have performance issues.

I've been playing this the past 2 days, and it is a lot of fun, but yea the performance is pretty bad. I had to turn everything down to High and Med to get it running somewhat decently.

When you see someone referring to a price that's different from what you see, you can safely assume they're talking about their own currency.

I assume little when I'm having a discussion on the InterWebs. Especially when the changed number is the one adjacent on a keyboard to the number I expect to see.

I know where I'm from so it's only logical to assume that everyone knows where everyone else is from, NOT.

For me, it's completely natural when I read prices to assume it's not necessarily my currency. Maybe that's because I'm not from the US. Most people from the US have a bit of a "center of the world" mentality and I can understand that it would be natural for them to think that everyone talks about US currency. It's not an insult, it's just how it is.

Nothing against you itBurn, but in most cases, the US is pretty much the center of the world. Most games are developed here in the states. US Currency is an international currency. So that's why you see a lot of that going on here.

Case and point, you are from Europe most likely but here you are hanging out on a US gaming news server. Need I say more?

I'm not seeing how there's a deal of 33 percent off here. Steam is showing this as $24.99. This is the deal? Seriously? Ah not happening, I'll wait this one out for a christmas or fall sale.

I still can't get over the stupid setting. I mean North Korea occuping the USA? How could this even be remotely possible?

I take it you never saw Red Dawn? \= |

They put out extensive background to the reason why North Korea had turned in to a superpower via technology in the lead up vids, it's an alternate history.

I'm guessing you'd complain because Wolfenstein isn't an accurate recollection of WWII?

Wrong, on all accounts. That movie was butchered and changed. It was originally China set as the main enemy and invader. But it was changed during shooting of the movie because of some bullshit politically correct bullshit to not piss off China, well fuck China. they can all go fuck themselves!!.

In one of his previous vids he was talking about why he would like to do this sort of stuff more often than the WTF videos.
He has to go to chemo every week I believe, and after chemo he is sick for 2-3 days. Because of that he looses out so much time he can not do the wtf vids as often as he used to.

I feel bad for the poor guy. I really enjoy his content.


I'm not saying he feels good but he sounds really good in that video.


Yea, he did sound good i nthat video, sounded like his old self.

This is a big Fuck you to Cancer Middlefinger And hoping TB beats it and anyone else who has it does.

I havent heard and was wondering that myself. Most likely he's in remission. Hope he's doing better though.

When you buy your games on these shady sites with huge discounts, you have to understand that you're shooting yourself in the foot. The developers get less money per sale and this affects the frequency and quality of games of that type. Vote with your wallet. Encourage the devs and games you like... I understand that these publishers aren't panhandlers and that you're not rich, but you're still affecting the game industry.

The developer can kiss my ass. I have no sympathy for them when they take short cuts on games and give you a half assed game that's last around 5 to 6 hours. Sorry but you are barking up the wrong tree here pal.

Well. You're reasoning in this case is utter bullshit because this particular game seems like the developers really gave what the gaming public wanted from a DOOM game. so saying "screw the devs" buys you no clout in here.

However, I do frequent the grey market, because if you think that the developer is getting less money because of the grey market, I'd first look at their publisher's take-home, their online distributor's take-home, before you look at 30% reduced revenue from a grey market site.

If you really been heartwrenched about not giving devs a proper cut, just mail them a cheque directly for the full price of the game, it will be 20x more effective than buying on Steam. I used to pirate a lot of games when I was uber poor, and always felt shitty about it, it's nice now that I have some disposable income sometimes that there's a way I can still buy games legitimately without putting me in the poor house. fucking $79.99 CAD, with tax in my province it's about $93 for a fucking game. If grey market sites didn't exist, I highly doubt any singleplayer game would ever get a dime from me.

Yes, this game may very well be their redeeming quality and I hope it is from everything I've seen so far. But that has yet to be determined. Only time will tell and many reviews later.

And BTW, If IGN is posting email to people about buying this game from CD Key.com for $32.95, then I guess its not to shady now is it?

Thought I heard "no" last night, but snapmaps have a coop flag...


No Coop Campaign, and yes the Snapmaps are the only place to create Coop maps. Someone I'm sure will build a large Coop campaign if it's possible to do. I haven't had time to mess with it myself yet. So I am very curious about how much control in this we will have to be creative.

I have a bad feeling though that it's going to be some dumbed down fast placement BS.

Thinking about picking it up, but it's hard to justify $60 purchases when it seems like you can just wait a few months and pay half that.
It's $45 on GMG code: watch25

Game is good!

$34 on CDKEYS.COM

That's where I got my copy.

Can anyone recommend this game?

Also, speaking of RTS'... a sleeper game from Petroglyph came out, reminiscent of Command and Conquer. 8-Bit Armies

http://steamcommunity.com/app/427250

Yes, this is a really good game. I especially like the game now that they added the Reboot version. it goes back to the original formula of Act of War. 10X better now.

The Devs have also been adding new maps over the past 6 weeks. more to come too.

I'd love it if I could get a 25% off DOOM. Still on the fence and that would prob tip it over. 30$ for this is way too tempting. Oh yea don't forget Uncharted 4 came out this week.

you can, its called G2A.com and its about 34 dollars on their site.
