News Comments > DOOM Demo Extended
25. Re: DOOM Demo Extended Jun 21, 2016, 14:01 Alamar
 
Almost good enough... What's the point of having a limited time demo, on a game that's already complete?

When it's just like every other demo that exists forever, I'll consider trying it, at which point, they might even make another sale... Otherwise, I'll throw it on isthereanydeal.com and pick it up in 2-3 years... Also note, I don't care about the MP, so there's no rush to get in on that action...

The G in GIF stands for Graphics, so I pronounce it using the same way as the word it stands for. I could see saying JIF if the G stood for Giraffe, but IT DOES NOT.

I defer to the creator of the format and pronounce it JIF out of respect and appreciation for the endless years of service.

Along those same lines the battle still wages over the pronunciation of "Gib and Gibbed" from John Carmack and company.

wtf... I never would have guessed it's Jib and Jibbed... Insta-Jib just rolls off the tongue... : P

Anybody that wanted to play Destiny, most likely already did on the consoles.
I don't see the point of releasing this game on the PC years after it's initial release.
Just keep your pocket change Bungie and erect a few more DLC instead of half assed pc port. It will probably be more profitable

I probably would have played the game if it had been on PC long ago, but I'm never going to buy a new console just for a game... I've had more great PC games to play than I have time to play them anyway. I wouldn't buy it if they released it now because it's too little too late. I'm going to encourage other companies who treat PC gamers better. Like others said, I won't be missing much anyway.

Man... I have only ever purchased a console for one game... Super Mario, Sonic, Soul Calibur, Not sure on the more recent (~15 years) systems, but then Bloodborne... : )

Vampyr, the upcoming vampire gaym

Putting your opinion of how this game will be in the text?

I did a double take when I first read it... And then scanned the headline, wondering if the character was gay or whatever... I think Blue just did that because Vampyr, even though the trailer, he calls himself a vampire...

I found Prophecies pretty lackluster at first... There are so many that are just a waste of time... At least from a reward point of view... And that fits the nature of an RNG loot system, so it's not all bad...

Plus... I got my first ever (500+ hours played) 6L... Which is a Tabula Rasa, so it's kind of cheating (and I got it on the first day of Prophecy)... I'm enjoying FrostBolt/Vortex and will try to stick with it to the 90s, but I find high level grinding so damn boring...

And, Tabula is so bittersweet for me... It let's me be OP for 70 levels, but it'll be a pain to find a replacement, so I can throw it in my stash for a new alt/build...

Have not put in the time to get far in the first, but I thought it was a really neat take on TD games... Trailer looks good, and the changes coming look good ; )

Cool... A co-worker has put a lot of time into this, but I wasn't sure I'd like it... Queue'd it up for DL tonight, as the 25GB is kind of crazy for my monthly cap (that I go nowhere near, but still).

I had forgotten this was in the works, but I see it's already on my Steam Wish List. Also thoroughly enjoyed some of the previous installments, but I did end up finding them a bit too long in the SP campaign... We'll see how the third's '30+ hours' feels, but I'm happy to see some very nice/crisp graphics ; )

Makes you wonder what their QA process is...

Btw, the bit about 'don't worry, you won't be penalized', is because this patch re-enables some hacker griefing BS...

I have no doubt I'll pay attention... And maybe pick up some wish list titles I just can't justify for more than $5/10, but I'm expecting a lot of disappointment again...

Maybe if I could clear my game list, and memory, I could re-enjoy hundreds of amazing games ; )

I've been accused of cheating in a few diff games, and I love it hehe...

But I don't understand the point of cheating, in games, or sports, or anything... How can you be proud of a win you didn't earn?

There’s no NDA (non-disclosure agreement) for the Legion beta test, so those invited to play are free to discuss their experiences as well as take screenshots, share videos, and stream game content

What is this craziness? In this day and age?

I know it's par for the course with Bliz, and it's an established title, but still... Crazy!

Dagnamit wrote on May 3, 2016, 10:27:
somewhat off-topic, but I have recently gotten into the first Dark Souls game after a great deal of trouble with it for YEARS. I get it. It's probably a top 10 game all-time. Utterly brilliant.

I was absolutely dreading the first time I would get invaded by another player because forced PVP ain't really my bag, but HOLY SHIT did I crush that MF'er. He was NOT expecting a 2-handed Zwei +5 to rain blows upon him again and again. I cackled so loud I woke up my son from across the house.

I'm of the same mind as you... Invaders are a nuisance.. But holy crap, this last play through (of DS 3), I was invaded twice in one zone... The first, I plunged onto and chop chop with my bigass Yhorm's Machete, and he's gone... The other one, I had to work on.. Was a long fight, with them quaffing a lot of Estus, but finally they died... Then I realized I still had all mine, so I chain quaffed a bunch standing over their corpse as they were whisked away... Sooooo satisfying : )

Edit: Meant to say, I'm surprised they put in anti-cheat functionality that penalized big Souls increases, since previous DS games have also had hackers giving away crazy amounts of Souls to random people... At that point, it was just an annoyance, because you could just spend the souls you already had, and die away the rest... In the end, it's just bad foresight/planning... But they have to get some things wrong... The game is so great otherwise : )

Man, I still hate that they changed the name... Every time I see one of these, I'm like, sweet, another M&M... : (

In this case specifically, it was 'Sweet, another M&M... Wait, was VII the Breath of Heaven or something... Heroes... Shit...'
