One of my favorite games, but I want to see a new one. Not DLC.

The Devs said there will be a new one but not for a while. so I take it its in the works but a few years down the road. Im good with that as long as its an updated 64 bit engine and has a better planet system layout then what they got now.

I got this game for free when I purchased a new video card and never played it.

Judging by my friends who picked this up and then promptly went back to playing Path of Exile within a few days, I figured this game wouldn't be worth my time for a while.

From the sounds of it, they made it worse.

Ah well, looks like I'm not missing out

For the SP aspect, you will like it and have fun, its the DZ that's a complete waste of time and not worth all the Bullshit that goes on in there. Until they weed out and ban more than half the cheaters the game will never be any good until that day comes.

But don't hold your breath.

Seems like there are a lot of VR games coming out...how many people actually have VR units?

VR is seriously getting out of hand. I personally will not put some stupid VR device on my head and years from now wonder why my eyes are all fucked up like in the movie the Jerk.

And that looks lame as shit, floating weapons? Give me a fucking break!!

Yep, here we go, more people bitching about something they don't understand. The "floating guns" thing is becoming standard because unless people want to strap MORE shit to their arms, the game can't always properly guess your arm location, and IF IT IS WRONG, you will flip the fuck out as your brain tries to figure out why your arms are broken. Also, when you're playing, you DON'T NOTICE the guns are floating.

You and Cutter and everyone else on here who hates technology that's beyond what they can comprehend won't believe me, but whatever. Until you play around with it, you CANNOT understand why it's so incredible. You think that it's just a monitor on your face, and 3D, and so you think that sounds pretty lame and have written it off.

YES, it's true that most VR titles out right now are glorified tech demos. This is literally like having to start all over on game design. They're still working out First Person locomotion, as teleporting doesn't feel right and "sliding along" makes people sick. If someone is given enough visual cues, you can put them on a moving platform, but that again limits what kinds of games that can be done.

But then there are the things that we can do in VR that you CANNOT do on a monitor. You can have swordfights where you actually have to maneuver your sword around their armor, then go explore a dungeon where you may need to physically crouch to get under a swinging blade (Vanishing Realms). There's a bizarre gun fetishist game where reloading actually makes you eject your clip and physically insert a new one...and it doesn't approximate. You need to ACTUALLY get the clip into the gun, not just get it neat the socket (Hotdogs, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades). Shooting gallery games make a lot of sense in VR, so you'll see there are a lot of them popping up.

Also, VR is where "walking simulators" can thrive, as just being in a new environment is thrilling in VR. Sure, you can't slide along without being sick, but teleporting doesn't feel "cheap" in exploration games. You simply point to where you want to look around, click and you're there. If there's no combat, it simply takes the wasted time of moving over there out of it.

Ripping on VR without having tried it makes you just sound bitter. You will compare it to failed technology, because you can't understand why it's so much better than what you have. You're the horse rider, telling everyone the automobile is crap.

Lots of nothing ...the weapons are STILL floating 3D -VR = pushing shit out for tha money and SOME i see jumps right in defending there purchase ... Book

^ This!

And to the dumbass who thinks this new Tech is so fucking brilliant doesn't have clue fucking one. It's a fucking gimmick, and suckers like you suck it up without hesitation.

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!

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.

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!!.
