it didn't feel short to me so much as it felt like it simply stopped, plot threads not just left dangling, but slashed and left blowing in the wind. and by some accounts, we'll never get a conclusion.

If you've played DX and IW, you already know how the Illuminati arc concludes. That's why I never understood why people were so upset by DX:MD's ending. The main story arc (the train station bombing and the people behind it) was resolved. The Illuminati stuff wasn't but these games are prequels so you already know how that stuff ends. It's not like Bob Page was going to die in any of these prequels, nor would the Illuminati be exposed or dismantled.

In any case, DX:MD is well worth playing if you enjoyed DX:HR. It doesn't have as much environmental variety but the environments it does have are much larger and more dense. You can spend hours simply exploring the hubs, breaking into random apartments, reading strangers' e-mails and drinking their booze. Also, Golem City is probably the most atmospheric level I've played in years. Basically the best sci-fi ghetto I've seen in any game. Really impressive stuff.

Slightly related: I gave in and bought The Evil Within 2 on a minor sale off Gamersgate. The game is awesome.

If you liked The Evil Within at all, you'll most likely love the sequel. I highly recommend interested parties pick it up if the Steam sale price is decent.

If you hated the first one... you'll probably still hate the second one.

You don't even need to wait for the Steam sale. You can get the game for less than $30 at cdkeys.com. From the numbers on Steamspy, it seems like it's a flop. I'd be extremely surprised if we see another game in the series.

I'm enjoying TEW2 but it still has a lot of the jank from the original. I was hoping they would have resolved all that.

MEH! Why oh why did people have to ruin the system? Steam sales used to be so exciting. Now it's like you are paying the normal price when a game is on sale, and the rest of the year you are paying the marked up price. I'd rather have flash deals again and not be able to get refunds.

I wonder why people keep saying this, makes no sense, basically the old "sale" was not realy a sale, just a waiting game to see if you could find the game you wanted at the "special" temporary lower price, now it's the whole time of the sale at that price.

Well, no, that's not actually true. When sales last a week or more, they aren't going to be as good as sales that only last 6-8 hours. That's why the flash sales were always better than the regular ones. The current sales lack the deeper discounts offered by the flash sales and daily deals.

Except that the flash sale system meant you waited to buy anything on the last day of the sale unless it was a flash sale. I would just briefly check if something I wanted was on a flash sale and if I missed it I'm waiting a few days to a week for it to come back again for that 75% off price. Then I may just forget about it or get turned off and spend my money elsewhere.

For as much joy one might get checking out the daily and flash deals it got aggrivating if you missed one. The other trade off is you get returns now. So, I don't get why people cry that much about flash sales, especially when there are other sites out there competing. That and steam has weekly and weekend sales all the time now.

I only care about getting the lowest price possible. Were variable prices less convenient for the average consumer? Sure, but I'm not the average consumer. I'm cheap and willing to put in the effort to save extra cash. Flash sales are great for people like me.

Open-world Star Wars confirmed.

This isn't really surprising, though. The linear, story-driven SP experience is on its way out. Publishers want you to play their games for as long as possible because it increases their opportunities to monetize. Linear, story-driven SP games don't have that kind of longevity.

As a general rule, I find that season passes are worth about a third of their asking price. So in this case, $14. The only exception thus far was the Witcher 3 season pass, which was a fantastic deal.

Err, expansion packs and sequels wouldn't make any sense given the format of HITMAN. Season 2 would effectively be the sequel and expansion pack.

Most likely, it'll be some more elusive targets or maybe even another variation of an existing level. I'd be down for that. Thailand, Colorado and Japan haven't had any variants yet.

News Comments > Psychonauts 2 Gameplay Video
6. Re: Psychonauts 2 Gameplay Video Oct 8, 2017, 20:13 Jerykk
 
Speak for yourself. I've been in game development for years.

I'm not sure why you'd expect final assets for anything within the first year of development. Assets aren't finalized until alpha at the earliest. This isn't even pre-alpha yet. Most of the first year is spent on writing, paper design, gameplay prototyping, concept art, storyboards, level blockouts, etc. In a platformer, finalizing the character's move set and traversal standards needs to happen first, then level designers block out the levels based on said standards, then artists make the levels pretty. Artists shouldn't be making final assets for anything until the first two steps are completed or else they'll have to redo a lot of work.

What I see in the video looks like first-pass art, which is appropriate because it is in fact first-pass art. Making final level art for a platformer before gameplay standards have been finalized would be idiotic. Also, the level takes place in a quarry so yes, there is a lot of grey. I wouldn't be too worried about the rest of the game's color palette.

Eh? Are we sure Square has anything to do with this? The Steam page says the game is developed and published by Milestone. No mention of Square anywhere. The official website is the same. I think Gamespot got their info wrong.

Hard to tell by this video what where the final quality will land.

This work looks C+ including the character, right now the level is very grey but you can tell it has no final lighting, the objects look WIP.

Seems like after almost a year they would have a small section of a full level finished, not just the art test they showed before.

What they showed is going to be the main hub area of the game. It's not just an art test. Also, pre-production takes up the majority of the first year. That's where you finish the paper design and lay out the foundations before committing to full production of assets.

Really wish people had a better understanding of game development. I guess that's why devs are so hesitant to show anything that isn't basically finished.

5. Re: ELEX Trailer Oct 4, 2017, 22:53 Jerykk
 
I've enjoyed PB's previous games, though they haven't really evolved much since Gothic. Combat and traversal are still janky. October is already overloaded with games I want to play so I'll probably hold off on this until I'm done with those.

On a side note, Elex appears to suffer from a lack of decisiveness. It's like PB wasn't sure if they wanted to make a fantasy, sci-fi or post-apocalyptic RPG so they just threw all three together.

I think the biggest issue with bundles is that they seriously devalue indie games. Unless I absolutely have to play an indie game immediately, I'll just wait until it's included in a bundle. No point in buying it individually, even if it's on sale.

The low player numbers are unfortunate but the market is simply saturated with shooters. I'm definitely having more fun with Lawbreakers than Quake Champions tho.


Oh man, I played the quake beta for about 5 minutes before uninstalling. I bet it will sell millions of copies.

Gamers are just dumb as fuck these days, don't know what to tell you all. You could get the same experience with QuakeLive, infact a better one without dumb hero classes as a "me too!" cash grab.

Or you could try Lawbreakers, the game that costs half the price, and easily quad-times the fun It really is a "true" spiritual successor to quake/unreal.

You probably shouldn't have announced that you only played QC for five minutes. That makes any opinion expressed afterwards basically worthless. Ignorance isn't bliss when it comes to criticism.

Also, how is Lawbreakers half the price? They're both $30 on Steam, though QC will eventually be F2P and is already F2P if you use the Bethesda Launcher.

New IP + New Developer + Multiplayer-only + $30 = flop (except for PUBG, which is the exception to the rule). The MP market is highly saturated and most people only play one MP game at a time. Lawbreakers is competing against CS:GO, PUBG and Overwatch. The average consumer is not going to risk $30 on a MP-only game that might be dead within a week when they're already playing something they know they enjoy.
