I liked Rage well enough, though for me it got badly ruined by the terrible Megatexture engine. The hideous amounts of pop-in and god-awful textures when up close just really soured the experience.

Yeah, I had the same impression when I first played it on a dualcore but on my i5 with a decent NVIDIA card it look beautiful with no pop-ins anymore! It was the one game when Caramack released something for which the hardware wasn't ready.

The textures still look awful up-close regardless of what hardware you're using. Later id Tech 5 games have greatly improved in that regard but RAGE looks really terrible unless you're at a distance.

Bethesda is so blatantly pursing this, yet how many people, including many who consider themselves tech savvy and informed etc were to busy being interested in a neutered editor called SnapMap when revealed rather than having a neon WTF sign over their heads.

I don't think any modders were interested in SnapMap. SnapMap is nothing more than a rudimentary level editor.

If you're suggesting that Bethesda will try to monetize user-created maps... yeah, I don't see that happening. Nobody would pay for them, especially when the maps all use recycled assets.

One huge map, one main story mission, a bunch of smaller side-missions (Contracts, Escalations, Elusive Targets). There's tons of replayability. I've put over 80 hours into the first four episodes (including the bonus episode released last month) alone.

Not sure why people thinking killing people is so much more fun than being stealthy but then, I like stealth games and when I play stealth games, I don't even neutralize enemies. 100% ghosting. I guess I'm in the minority of people who enjoy that playstyle, though.

The walkthrough summary makes the game sound like System Shock 3. Sounds promising, though I still miss Prey 2.

I remember buying Deus Ex: HR, and talking to an early NPC, which was some sort of hobo woman living near a trash can, who mysteriously had lots of coherent and useful information about the world around me.

Given how I live in a hobo-infested city, that experience was jarringly unrealistic and put me off the game permanently.

Can't tell if serious..? If so, I assume you never played the original DX. It was full of surprisingly well-informed hobos.

As much as I want this to be great, it's hard to put faith in ubi. It's almost guaranteed to force us to use their launcher at the very least.

Uplay integration has already been confirmed, sadly. That said, it might still be a good game. The combat looks like a step up from the previous game and the writing still seems hilarious.

I liked the first season of Walking Dead and hated the second. I was pretty disappointed in Wolf Among Us and thought Game of Thrones was, by far, their worst entry. Didn't bother with the Borderlands one. The quality trend is going the wrong way.
I agree about Walking Dead Season 2, the beginning and ending felt forced to me, like bad writing to create an artificial situation. Tales of the Borderlands was a lot of fun for me, it was really funny and didn't kill off people just because it could.

Why didn't you like Wolf Among Us? I really enjoyed that one, and it got me into the Fables comics to boot.

I enjoyed the story. It definitely lured me in. But I didn't like the way they kept presenting us with fake "choices". And forcing the desired outcome regardless. I remember that I finally got tired of the Tweedles fucking with me so I opted to kill them both. There must have been a half dozen characters all telling me to not do it. Telltale REAAAALLY didn't want me to even try. By the end I was just fed up. I'd rather it be a tv series on HBO, than a game. It was the same with game of thrones when they kept trying to get you to submit to the Whitehills. In the end I kept refusing to spite Telltale.

I think you probably need to change your expectations. None of these games (or these kinds of games) is going to let you tell your own story. You're simply changing the details of the story being told, not the major plot points. This is true of any game that lets players affect the narrative.

Man, that would be awesome.

Although the reason why games like Blood and Quake 3 were so great is because of the respective engine. The movement etc. was just fantastic. Similar thing with Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy. The Quake 3 engine is so versatile that you could do stuff like that and why Quake 3 was such an amazing game.

Most games we have today just seem so slow in comparison. The only fast game we have is Warsow but barely anyone plays it.

Movement speed has nothing to do with the engine. It's a conscious design choice. The reason why most modern shooters are slow is because they're designed for gamepads which don't work so well for fast-paced twitch shooters.

so if I'm about to start playing, and I will eventually be buying the 2 expansions, should I buy them now before starting or complete the game and then buy the expacs one by one to complete?

The expansions are designed to be played in order of release. So main game -> Hearts of Stone -> Blood & Wine. You could try to play them out of order but it would be tough since the expansion quests are designed for high-level players.

Not sure why people have such problems with the combat. Are they playing it in the most boring way possible (Quen + light attack spam) on Normal (i.e. easy) difficulty? I guess you get what you put into it. I played on Death March and made full use of my signs (except for Quen), potions, oils and bombs and found the combat both interesting and appropriately challenging. I put most of my points into the alchemy tree and the rest into the signs tree. Zero points in the combat tree because all of those skills looked pretty boring.

Quen is pretty unfortunate. Although it isn't nearly as OP as it was in Witcher 2, it's still pretty OP (especially when you get the secondary mode that actually heals you when you get hit). It really makes the combat far less interesting but people rely on it because it makes the game a lot easier.

Seems like every PB game has a raptor-like monster in it. I loved Gothic 1 & 2 and enjoyed the Risen games well enough so I'll give this a look, but I'm not finding the setting very interesting thus far.

Xmas 2017, maybe.

Let's just hope they learned not to fuck around with the dialog system like they did with FO4.

It will actually be interesting to see how they handle dialogue in the next ES game. If they're still going to let you play as different races and they have a fully-voiced PC, that means they're going to need different VO for each race (since a Khajitt can't sound like an Argonian and a Dark Elf can't sound like High Elf and a Breton can't sound like an Orc). Granted, ES has never really been about dialogue but even then, that's going to be a lot of VO for each line.

So where the frack is all the extra content that was promised for the season pass content? The content that was supposed to be above and beyond?

I believe that's what Nuka World is. They believe Far Harbor is worth $25 alone, so the original season pass price of $30 would be far too low for all of the DLC that you now receive.

Unfortunately, DLC is typically overpriced and the FO4 DLC is no exception. Far Harbor is worth maybe $15 max and I suspect Nuka World will be worth $10. Automatron is worth maybe $3 and the workshop DLCs are worth about $1 each. So yeah, if you paid $50 for the season pass, you should be pretty pissed. But if you paid around $20, it's a pretty good deal. Still, a disappointing showing overall after the great FO:NV DLC.

Aaaaand it's Gone.

Fallout 4 went out with a whimper, lulz. I think its time to bring old Yeller (aka, the Fallout Franchise) out back and put it out of its misery.

FO4 has sold around 3.5 million copies on PC alone so I don't think the franchise is going to be put out of its misery anytime soon.

Unless I'm living under a rock, I'm pretty sure Steam already has region-locked games. Russian keys are always region-locked and South American keys are usually region-locked too. Are there other regions where games are cheap but not region-locked?

I just don`t trust these people and their "reboot". This is not just "some" game but a masterpiece on the level of Pirates!, Quake and XCom.

Also it will be interesting to see if GOG will pull their recently-standard dick move upon release and force this remake-reboot as the only System Shock available to buy. Just like they did with Baldur`s Gate (and others?)

The X-COM reboot turned out pretty well so I don't think reboots are inherently evil. Also, the removal of the original BG from GOG, Steam and every other digital platform was a decision made by Beamdog/Interplay/whoever owns the rights to those games. Same applies to any game that gets removed (assuming it doesn't violate any TOS). Publishers and developers make those decisions, not the platform owners.

I really don't understand this fear of reboots. These were old games/series that were essentially dead. It's not like a SS reboot will alter the future of the series when the series had no future to begin with. Meadowbrook Insurance Group (the company that owned the IP until Night Dive bought it) was never going to make a System Shock 3, let alone a SS3 that picked up where SS2 left off.

ItBurn wrote on Jun 28, 2016, 19:02:
My dream patch would be a difficulty setting that rebalances the whole game.
- Remove stunned state for enemies. Glory kills can be done only if monster would die from the melee damage. Rebalance monster health so that it's based on shotgun damage increments.
- Killing enemies very rarely/never gives health, rebalance the amount of health for in-level health packs to compensate.
- Chainsaw no longer drops ammo and enemies very rarely/never do.
- Rebalance of enemy health and damage to compensate for these changes.
- Change the waves of enemies so that we get more enemies, more variety and more of the tougher enemies as the story progresses.

I think that these wouldn't be too hard to implement as a patch. If I could change another thing though, it would be to simplify the upgrade system so that you're not stressed to find all the secrets in order to be strong enough to continue. Finding the secrets takes a long time and it would be cool if we could skip them like in the old Doom.

That would warrant another replay. Right now, playing nightmare isn't really appealing because the difficulty change doesn't really change anything other than damage values. As far as I can tell anyway.

So... you're complaining about the game's lack of difficulty without having even played on Nightmare? Really? On Nightmare, enemies do a shit ton of damage. As in, a basic zombie can kill you in 2-3 hits. When enemies do that much damage (and have much more health), it drastically changes how you approach combat. Tactics that worked on the easier difficulties? Probably not going to work anymore. Also, you complain about lack of difficulty but also complain about searching for optional upgrades in order to make the game easier? Isn't that contradictory?

The correct approach when playing any game is to play on the highest difficulty right off the bat. Don't waste time with lower difficulties because if you're playing a mainstream AAA game, anything other than the highest difficulty will be cakewalk. Even on Nightmare, Doom gets pretty easy in the late game after you've upgraded everything but the first two-thirds is a good challenge.

I did not feel a sense of worry, mainly I feel, because I felt too in control of my character. I'm nimble and fast now. The controls of the original SS were a great part of the challenge; now everything is too easy to do and everything controls too well. I feel like maybe they need to cripple the character or something to make one worry more so about their survival and dire situation.

Sluggish controls are never the answer. The real solution is to make faster, stronger and smarter enemies. Also, make health mean something, with limited healing options. The demo was clearly designed to be easy, as the enemies barely do any damage.

As for the Kickstarter, $30 is a bit high for my tastes. $15 would be the sweet spot and would be in the comfort range for the majority of potential backers. I feel like they're overestimating the size of the System Shock fanbase.

You idiots calling for an end to regional pricing don't seem to understand that the "fix" is locking you out of buying or using keys from other regions... it isn't "lower prices". Dumb dumb dumb.

It makes no sense on the internet, where one IP address is much like another.

It actually makes perfect sense. Do you think running datacenters for content delivery in those countries costs the same amount that it does to run one in the US? When given the option of barely selling any games for full price in a region that cannot afford it vs selling some games for a slightly lower price... literally no one would choose option A.


Valve is literally allowing you greedy fucks to take advantage of regional pricing when you shouldn't be able to... and you are bashing them for it. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Except most games are region-locked now so that's not actually true.
