News Comments > Diablo III Season 12 Underway
1. Re: Diablo III Season 12 Underway Nov 11, 2017, 19:23 Alamar
 
I may jump into this... Ended up thoroughly enjoying the Necro's Spinny Bone Armor set...

Also, for those that find the following the most important bit of info for a new league, like I do:

Here are the sets granted by Haedrig’s Gift in Season 12:

Barbarian – Immortal King’s Call
Crusader – Seeker of the Light
Demon Hunter – Natalya’s Vengeance
Monk – Uliana’s Stratagem
Necromancer – Trag’Oul’s Avatar
Witch Doctor – Spirit of Arachyr
Wizard – Vyr’s Amazing Arcana

I gotta say, it would freak ME out to have had to work without any of the things they bargained for. The money part isn’t what’s concerning, it’s the unknown factors that would bother me. They still don’t have to tell the actor what game they’re voicing, which is bullshit. “Oh, you’ll be working on a tiny project no one’s heard of”, and two years later there’s your voice as the main character of a new Uncharted series, and you got $2000.

I agree the changes to give the VA more info about the role is good... Getting associated with something that you're against (or don't want on your record) would suck...

But telling all your VAs, that might have very little interest in keeping your secret (other than the NDA, which is hard to enforce), what hyped game sequel they can now reveal, is a bad idea.

As for the $2k, I don't know why that's relevant. I don't support royalties, so it doesn't matter if the game does well or not (and the above includes royalties by another name anyways), but if it does do well, that VA is likely to get more work as a result.

Always nice to let people go just around Xmas time, isn't it?

Better to let some go, than everyone... We've all seen many studios close, or worse, be bought by EA, heh...

Nioh'ce... Didn't realize the PC edition was this close... Too busy with Destiny 2 to grab it, and wasn't willing to pay launch price on PS4, so hopefully in half a year it's at a good point ; )

you need to buy a lot of real garbage.

Indeed... Steam says I have 566... And I stopped adding keys for all my purchases a year or two ago... I have 85 unclaimed keys on Humble, for example... And when I was subbed to the Bundle Stars and Indie Gala spam, I would occasionally buy one of those for a single game, and just leave the rest alone...

Though, on the other hand, it'd be cool to have over 1k heh... But it becomes so unwieldy to manage... I mostly keep my list on 'Installed', which is actually about 50 games right now... Most of which have gotten a few minutes at least : )

Bought 3 more in this sale too... Aquaria, Strikey Sisters, and Tricky Towers... The latter two to play some local Coop/MP with my daughter : )

These are usually really competitive or professional players.

I've been pretty competitive... And I love to win... Which is why I never cheat... Cheating invalidates the 'win', so there's no joy to take from it... At least for me.

hammered http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/destiny-2

metacritic at launch has, and always will be, useless... Too many dumbasses with shitty 10 or 0 reviews, skewing the scores with their fanboi BS praising, or their ridiculous BS complaints...

Personally loving the game atm myself ; )

4K@60 feels gooooood ; )

News Comments > Rogue Trooper Redux Released
3. Re: Rogue Trooper Redux Released Oct 18, 2017, 14:19 Alamar
 
Thoroughly enjoyed this when it came out... Added some RPG elements to a shooter, which was unusual at the time... Interesting enough story too.

Buying it again when it came out on Steam sucked though, as it wasn't compatible with Win 10 (or whatever OS was relevant at the time), so I'm happy for the Redux, at least when the price (for a remake) is reasonable ; )

I'd bet there are less than 1 million active players at any given time. The game is just getting to be a bit stale.

1 million active players is a bit stale?

That seems like an odd argument, or are those two sentences supposed to be unrelated?

Hell though, I'm just surprised the first reply wasn't someone complaining about the lootboxes despite them being wholly inconsequential.

Are they, though? From an ArsTechnica article on loot boxes:

Multiple pre-release reviews of the game have confirmed that its "100 percent" completion state is locked behind an end-game mode called Shadow Wars, which hinges largely on players' ability to recruit "more powerful" allies in the game. To do this, players must use the game's loot-box recruitment system, and reviews indicate that this is tied to a random number generator. Your probability of unlocking a worthy ally, therefore, goes up as you open more loot boxes. Doing so by simply using in-game credits takes a lot longer than opening up your wallet.

:-shrug-:



Sounds like an extension to the same argument... Nothing is locked out by not buying loot boxes for cash, but buying loot boxes for cash unlocks things quicker.

I (still) don't see that as a problem...

What I personally don't like, is when games release DLC Content which adds achievements, taking that initial 100% completion to 80% of whatever. Playstation works around this by awarding their Platinum Trophies based on base game only (at least in the few cases I've cared to look into). But this is all moot, because of the hundreds of games I've beaten, there were single digit numbers of games I wanted to 100% on, so I'll stop ranting about tangents : )

The FoV is 60, with no way to change it. I'm sorry, but there is just absolutely no excuse for this in any game released in the last 25 years. It is almost impossible to comprehend, borderline criminal.

Avoid this game like the plague.

This is certainly surprising... I mean that they didn't include an FoV slider (Though I bet there'll be a workaround in the next week), not the hyperbole in this post ; )
