Eh. Everything in CO looked like it was slathered in vasoline. CoH/V also felt like it played better and was more rp-oriented than CO.

Was there any news on why this started out at 29.99? Hitting 1 million sales seems like a big deal, I don't remember much about the original and didn't know they were making a sequel...

And how come Warhammer keeps getting kick ass games but Warhammer 40k keeps missing the mark? Can we start asking companies that put out good Warhammer games to follow up with a 40k add on or something?

Getting really fucking jealous over here.

FFS, even blood bowl is more fun than most 40k games I've tried lately.

Well, need to remember, GW's Golden Boy for 40K [THQ] went under and was chopped up/sold off. So now they're kind of casting a wider net, but limiting what can really be done.

We've had a few different games since then that are good, but hard to hold interest in. [Battlefleet Gothic: Armada springs to mind.] And they'll sell regardless if they're good or not, because people love the IP for 40K.

It'd be GREAT if we got more 'Space Marine'-type games, rather than more RTS games. We've got Inquisitor on its way and I'm assuming a number of others in the works. I enjoyed Deathwing for what it was, but it needed more. Hell. I'd be happy if another company got their hands on the 40K IP and the assets for that MMO that they were working on 8 years ago. Or, a proper Planetside2 clone [Not Eternal Crusade. That ... mmm. -.-]

And I just snagged Blood Bowl, so may take a poke at that. Heard the RNG likes to pin players down and bone them. -.-

Bill Borre wrote on Apr 12, 2018, 10:43:
We already know that there is a risk that people using these dolls could become desensitized and their behavior could become normalized to them, so that they go on to harm children. There is absolutely no evidence that using the dolls stops potential abusers from abusing children.

I don't think these statements could possibly be factual because verifying them would involve conducting unethical experiments with control groups.

They'd have to prove the same bullshit that Jack Thompson and the rest of the putzes who believe violent video games desensitize children to become murder machines.

Or before that, how playing Dungeons and Dragons makes you into a Satanist.

They want a scapegoat, instead of the blatantly obvious answer of ' A small number of people are messed-up and unable to differentiate between fantasy and reality'.

NMS turned out pretty well in the end, so maybe there's hope?

But look how much backlash and BS it had to go through to get to that point, from what was initially promised.

The problem isn't the devs. It's the suits at the Publisher who want it now now now.

Personally, I'm perfectly fine with a game getting delayed a few months to have it be an enjoyable experience. If NMS was pushed back an additional 6 months, woulda been ok with that. If SoT was pushed back so they could have added.. you know... content and more than a pretty pirate-themed sandbox, I'd be fine with that too.

Conversely, I flipped a lid when the System Shock reboot was pushed back, but more because that kickstarter decided to go off in its own direction..

Point is, they need to stop rushing these games out. Either throw more people at it if you're that deadset on a deadline, or push it back a quarter or two. There's more than enough games out, and pushing out a pretty piece of garbage is only going to raise the ire against you in the end.

Kentucky New Era: A Florida attorney and anti-video game activist said he has been in contact with Marshall County Attorney Jeff Edwards regarding the shooting at Marshall County High School on Jan. 23.

Wikipedia: On September 19, 2009, Thompson announced that he intended to resume practicing law as of October 1, 2009, claiming that he was "never disbarred" because all of the orders resulting in his disbarment were legal nullities.[158] He dared The Florida Bar to get a court order to stop him.

NOOOPE. Shut yer hole, Thompson.

So do you think a 10 year old can ever consent to sex with a 38 year old? Hypothetically do you think a case exists where it's possible?

Are you saying theres no physical or mental difference between a 10 year old and a 15 year old?
Why is the accepted 'adulthood' at 18, which is just 3 years away, and loads of changes in that 3 year span? And even MORE changes in the 5 year span from a 10 year old to a 15 year old?

i like to imagine what the reaction would be if classic titles like half life 2 or system shock 2 were released today. "good game except for the typical SJW bullshit jammed down our throats, like did one of the main characters need to be a half black half asian female?? get this shit out of my games sjws."

You mean, way back, before all the current garbage started up, and people didn't pay attention to the characters as long as they were well-written, and not some checkbox in a diversity spreadsheet? Everything nowadays is suspect to agenda, where as before, it was 'whatever'.

Though I think the SS2 protag wasn't really anything, come to think of it. You literally didn't see the character, until someone hacked in a co-op mode, iirc. [I get the basic point... but still. I'm a nerd for that game >.>]

As for christians, I think if they didn't feel persecuted by 'other', then they'd rail against their own. Look how many variations there are, based on something as simple as interpretation.

. Oh, wait. There's a post from a Valve community mod locking the thread and linking to the support page on how to report abusive behavior."

General Rule #3
Abuse or encourage abuse of the Post Reporting System

That's why that was closed. Just report it, and move on.

People are going to be knobends, regardless of color or beliefs. The edgelord garbage from the two listed groups? Knobends.

While I don't support or condone their idiocy, they're paying money, just like anyone else. Unless they are outright harassing people with their stupidity, and they keep their toxicity in their own dank, dark little hole, let em.

You can't force them to evolve, and shaming doesn't really work.

Rigs wrote on Apr 20, 2017, 03:02:
The way I see it is this...the reason people are so...meh...on this game is that it really hasn't been explained to us. Who's the protagonist? Who's the antagonist? Why? Why here? What makes this station so important? They've given us small tidbits but they're expecting us to find out everything within the game, which is fine for an established IP and series, but not really for a new one. Take a look at Alien: Isolation, which I've been getting major vibes from when I see anything to do with Prey. I kinda overdosed on A:O backstory and 'lore', especially about the setting itself. So when we get another space station being invaded by nasty ol' aliens, I'm just kinda like...huh. I don't think I'm alone in that feeling. And before A:O, we had Dead Space (especially 2), before that, System Shock 2 (though not technically on a station). So at this point a game about fighting bad guys on an abandoned space station is getting a little stale unless the devs come up with a good reason why we should care. Is this whole 'Mimic' thing a reason? I can't really tell, to be honest. I haven't seen enough of it. I don't know enough about the setting or the bad guys. With A:O, you know the setting, you know the alien. With Dead Space 2, you knew the bad guys, the space station, while pretty to look at, was really just background window dressing. Here, we know nothing. So after a Conga-line of similar titles, how can one be expected to be excited about another one without knowing why?

And there it is. Yes, I'm more interested in the Prey storyline from the original game. The original series felt like something new, and not 'Aliens in the ductworks oh noes' all over again. The reluctance to go with this new game, is more to I wanted to see a continuation of that universe, as opposed to starting a whole new one with the original name.

And since when is expressing a concern 'whining'? We've seen PLENTY of games that over-hyped, and end up not living up to it, where as we have a bunch of indie games that get relatively little adverts, and end up being crack. [I'm looking at you, Binding of Issac -.- 300 hours of my life to that digital addiction..]

Gah... Never can remember how to use the code for this stuff.

They're pushing this extra hard, which doesn't give me any good feelings on this game. I already had annoyances that they took an IP I enjoyed playing [The actual Prey game. Man those pewter figurines are cool. Need to paint them one day...] and teased us with the Prey 2 trailer, and then dropped that ball for yet another 'System Shock-inspired' clone. Yes. I like those kind of games.. but stop pulling a bait-n-switch, Bethesda. Should have named this one 'Mimic' or something.

And now, the game company you couldn't much care less about lately, bringing a 'decent' game back in a 'remastered' version, that they hope everyone thought was good enough to buy again!

...Yeah. No. I played through it, had some laughs, finished it, and un-installed it. It was ok, at best. Re-install once in a while and then flush it right back out.

There's MANY other games that could use a re-mastering. I'd say wait a bit more than just 5 years -.-

News Comments > Duke Nukem Forever Demo
39. Re: Duke Nukem Forever Demo Jun 3, 2011, 14:56 Dash
Well... Played the demo... What is there to say?
Sure.. It's nice to finally play something that has won the Vaporware award a number of times.. It's nice to see Duke 'back in action', if it could be called that. The graphics are nice.. but I had to have alot of things turned down or off, due to having an onboard vid card that wasn't up to snuff.
The two weapon thing? Seems a bit low. I'd say 4 weapons [Yes I've always thought carrying a whole freaking arsenal, even though he's a steroid freak, was kind of silly.] The lack of a kick? Not happy about that. The controls felt kind of off, but I think that was just the graphic lag due to my settings.
The demo had the same cheesy humor that the original game had. That will be hit and miss for most people.
The shortness of the demo, and how the levels felt constructed has me a little worried. I remember in DN3d, that first level.. While it wasn't huge.. There was so much to do IN it. You could breeze through it in minutes, or pound around for a good 30+ minutes just trashin stuff. This demo.. did not have the same sensation.
I'm hesitant at getting this now. Worried about how long the actual game will be, how large the content of each level will have, and how much replay it will have. Maybe a Day-0 demo release would have been smarter.
I will get it.. Just not sure if sooner over later. [Although, if Gearbox is smart, they'll be working on a LARGE patch for the PC version, to DX11 the whole game. And a shit-ton of extra 'episodes' down the road.]
I still think the demo should have been a recreation of the original DN3d level 1, coupled with the stadium...

Here's an idea, Sony.

Cross-Game Chat. Steal it from 360.
