News Comments > Ghost Recon Breakpoint Free Weekend Begins

10. Re: Ghost Recon Breakpoint Free Weekend Begins Mar 27, 2020, 13:17 maddog
 
I'm an old 40-something guy and I have played through Wildlands probably a half dozen times now. I really don't mind the AI teammates.

The missions are "varied" enough for me to try to tackle them in different ways, HALO, stealth, guns blazing, sniping only etc.

Some of the unidad bases are a challenge for sure.

I was bummed when I first learned Breakpoint removed the AI teammates. Despites the devs promises to include them, I don't think it will happen.

I wish they'd take this engine and gameplay to Syria, North Korea, or some former soviet bloc Balkan country.

If you liked Wildlands or any other open world game of the past decade, you'd like Breakpoint because it's more of the same. Explore the map, fight bad guys, get loot, get stronger, repeat until you burn out.

I love Wildlands. I still play it several hours a week now. The part I loved about it was the feeling of being in a real country. That, and also the rebels that could provide cannon fodder and allow me to sneak in the back of a base while they attack from the front. Not to mention calling in mortar attacks, vehicle drop offs (although kinda cheesy) and diversions.

Can you confirm is any of that is in breakpoint? All that I can see from game footage is drone "stuff".

Are vehicles still littered throughout the map? Are there halo jumps?

News Comments > The Long Dark Goes Dark on GeForce NOW

10. Re: The Long Dark Goes Dark on GeForce NOW Mar 2, 2020, 14:34 maddog
 
So for shits I took one of the more funny Twitter comments and contacted Hinterlands if I had their permission to uninstall The Long Dark from my old computer and install it on my new computer. This was their response...

Hi Mike,

Thanks for reaching out to us. If you own this game on the Steam platform you should have full autonomy to install The Long Dark wherever you choose. Having the application installed on multiple devices at one time should be fine, as Steam will gate multiple copies from running at the same time. Please feel free to drop us a line again any time!

Best wishes,
Hinterland Support

News Comments > The Long Dark Goes Dark on GeForce NOW

I find this interesting. I signed up for the free version of GFNow and have yet to try it but from what I understand, they are just streaming your games that you already own. Why would they need permission from the devs? Seems like more a courtesy than anything. Someone in that tweet thread indicated that the Shadow PC gaming service is doing the same thing.

Never the less, seems like decision is not going the way the dev wished it would. He is getting pretty hammered.

I always enjoyed the World In Conflict game. Bummed a sequel or expansion never came out for that.

Hopefully this follows the same gameplay style. I was never good at base building games but I loved how WiC handled resources.

I wish they would have moved Ghost Recon more into the future and made a spiritual successor to Ghost Recon:Future Soldier.

News Comments > Video Game and Tech Workers Unionization Campaign

28. Re: Video Game and Tech Workers Unionization Campaign Jan 7, 2020, 18:51 maddog
 
Did anyone read the funny story a few weeks back about the guy who works in IT for an auto maker and after he rolled out Win10 to a ladies computer, she had a nervous breakdown about how different it was and went to her union. She ended up filing a grievance against this poor guy and the UAW got the whole Win 10 rollout stopped. It was a pretty funny read. It was in the r/sysadmin group on reddit.

Anyways, I am in my universities union. It has good and bad. They work to get us the odd 1, 2, 3% wage increases but yet they never go to the politicians to get income tax lowered or other burdensome taxes removed. Here in CA we now have a gas tax..sheesh. Funny thing is, as I make more base salary, the union dues go up with it, and of course my income tax does as well. Thanks...I guess.

Regarding this group...I hope they are successful. I have boycotted Disney since they made their IT guys train their Indian replacements. Might be a hard go of it though...[url=]https://www.reuters.com/article/us-volkswagen-union-vote-idUSKCN1TG014[/url]

Why do these games continue to sell so well? People really seem to enjoy playing basically the same game with a fresh coat of paint year after year don't they?

Middle school, high school and college kids. Then everyone under the age of 30.

News Comments > Ubisoft Calls Out Breakpoint & Delays Games

9. Re: Ubisoft Calls Out Breakpoint & Delays Games Oct 24, 2019, 23:58 maddog
 
I thoroughly enjoyed Wildlands. Playing through it again now.

I don't know why they just didn't keep the majority of the gameplay mechanics and just move the setting...North Korea, Chechnya, Iran...no shortage of hotspots they could have used.

It wasn't a perfect game but to me, it was fun.

Or even just take the Ghost Recon Future Soldier world and make it truly open world. Loved that installment also.

I'll be skipping Breakpoint until they add in the AI teammates.

Also fuck their roadmap where they are trying to sell the addition of AI teammates as a special value post-launch feature. LOL. Ghost Recon has always been a squad-based shooter. AI teammates should be the bare minimum at launch. Eeeeeee-fucking-ssential.
Instead they add insult to injury with hints in the game (open beta) that the game was optimized for a coop experience so please go online, join a gang of 12 year olds and STFU about AI teammates. Yeah, fuck you too, Ubishit.

wait...what? I admit I have not been following the press on this game much but are you saying the AI teammates are not there at launch? WTF. This was a day one purchase for me but after reading that, screw it. I'll keep playing Wildlands. Or wait for something else I guess.

I would like to see a more stealth version of Ghost Recon Wildlands.

Never played Splinter Cell: Blacklist though. Might have to go back and take a whack at it.

Haven't the Ubisoft games had this for years? Seems like since Ghost Recon Future Soldier, I've been able to go into the gunsmith area and test out scopes etc.
