2. Awesome sky textures... Feb 3, 2018, 00:35 Dreagon
 
...tacked on to a game that can't even graphically match a Half-Life engine from 2004. Seriously, how are character models like that even excusable these days? If your game is going to be "character-driven" you might want to put a little more effort into the appearance of the characters.

News Comments > Fallout 4 Free Weekend
25. Re: Great game, but still... Jan 30, 2018, 19:33 Dreagon
 
The only way they could give me hope with Fallout 5 is to say Obsidian is making it.

I like playing it but damn Fallout 4 was dumbed down for the unwashed masses.

Dumbed down is simply the new reality. As much as I hate to admit it, the complex games of old are gone. These days the best you can hope for is that they dumb the classic titles down in a way that doesn't destroy it.

For all of Fallout 4's faults, it did have some cool new mechanics as well. I loved the settlement building addition, and hope it finds its way into the next Elder Scrolls game as well (another game that is way, way overdue) But what I hate seeing is the amount of resources they put into repackaging this old game when it's past time for something new to show up.

I have enjoyed playing Fallout 4 for years. The only problem with that is that I've been playing Fallout 4 for years.

It's time for Bethesda to stop repackaging and repromoting this game and start giving out some hope for a Fallout 5

I had to turn down the graphic settings but I've been running it fine on a three year old Asus gaming laptop. Honestly, the game is pretty much what Murray said it was going to be.

A planetary map system of some kind would have been nice though.

Assuming everything this guy says is true (and that's just an assumption for convenience sake) then I sort of feel sorry for him. He's in a bad situation, and it's obvious he doesn't want his name muddied by the outcome.
On the other hand, he's providing a perfect example to a lot of artists, writers, and designers out there of what can happen when you get too passive in a partnership. Waiting until the problem is out of hand to speak up or do anything tends to end exactly this way. I hope he manages to salvage something out of this mess, but it isn't likely.

They have seen the videos and know they have to get this out before Frontier's far superior Planet Coaster is released.

Since Conan was written in 1932, isn't it and its character out of copyright and in the public domain now?

I'm cool with a June release date...

but I'm wondering what prompted them to have that event with the New Yorker, and to show it off on Colbert? They should have held off on that type of hype until April or May.

As a game developer you're limiting your market by creating a game so difficult only a portion of your players can complete it.
I thought that's what a difficulty level was for.

But difficulty levels make people feel bad. They want to win the game. If you put difficulty levels then they will want to win on the toughest...but if it's really tough then THATS NOT FAIR!!

News Comments > The Elder Scrolls V Engine Details
26. Hopeful but Cautious Jan 18, 2011, 01:19 Dreagon
 
Bethesda has a bit of a track record of exaggerating the features of it's games...anybody remember some of the claims about it's last iteration of Radiant AI?...so I tend to be a little cautious about accepting what they say without a huge grain of salt.

Even worse, they have been showing a trend of dumbing down each chapter of the Elder Scrolls from the previous edition and trying to play that down. I'm hearing they have cut the number of skills again, this time down to eighteen. And thats just what they are willing to admit so far.

And don't even get me started on Oblivion's level scaling in loot and monsters. There was absolutely no reason to explore in Oblivion as you could get the same results just visiting the same dungeon over and over again. There was nothing to find. A huge step backwards from Morrowinds hand placed items.

So while I hope they learned from their mistakes, I'm sort of fearful of their tendency to "streamline" things.

Amazing what we're accusing of consolitis these days...

*Ahem*

"Gearge Broussards comment on two weapons in DNF on Shacknews forums-

Yeah, blame us for it if you want. It may change in the future and I don't know what will happen with it, but it was us. I stand by it too, as you cannot discount designing games for a modern world and part of that world is consoles where the bulk of the sales can be. And on those consoles you have a controller. We tried for a long time to support lots of guns but we simply could not find a nice way to map it to a controller, despite trying 4-5 designs. We gave it enough time and decided to stop swimming against the current and adopt what was basically the "standard".

It's not 1996 anymore."


Another rousing defense of consolitus.
