News Comments > John Guthrie Leaves Valve?

Yeah, pretty sad.....Valve now only needs people from foreign countries to pretend to answer tech support questions & count their money rolling in from steam fees to every transaction anymore, no need for actual developers , designers or the like....

I am in the camp that firmly believes a new "orange" box is coming. Source 2 (the new source engine) is available for developers, there have been leaks of dev plans referencing a new Left4Dead, a (or a couple?) of leaked screenshots of a l4d2 level apparently redone to showcase Source 2, and it is what valve did to launch the Source engine... released a bunch of Showcase games. And with how profitable tf2/csgo are in the market and how wildly popular portal is they're basically a guaranteed a remake as well.

I've had this though since last year when the Source 2 leaks started.

Then there is Gabe confirming, this year, that Valve is working on singleplayer games.

I would do Wolfenstein again. Single and multiplayer. The last multiplayer version was really well done for its time, I miss it though i believe it is free now.

I played 100's of hours into every GTA except for the last 2.

It's kinda weird that I didn't play the latest actually.


The singleplayer in GTA 5 was the only game to rival/top Vice City in the GTA series to me. Couldn't be bothered to finished #4, but have 100%'d #5 on ps3, and come close to a 2nd 100% on #5 on pc.

The multiplayer CAN be great, but it is hit or miss based off other players. But the singleplayer? Loved it. The gameplay, the story, the jokes.... the best GTA has done IMO, and I've played since the 2d beginnings (gouranga!). If you have a newer 6/8gb card,one of the best looking free roam games too, so much detail.

I found the repetitiveness of the expansion/dlc very...VERY trying (if you played it you know what I mean). But I couldn't stop, and when it was over I was wishing it would have kept on going.

What a strange game, that is the complete package. I hate it, and yet I love it.

Yes it's worth $3, and your time.

I couldn't get into the DLC, felt like a forced constant action game with mechanics that suited the slow crawl much more.

News Comments > EA Financials Reveal 19 Million BF1 Players

Flak wrote on May 10, 2017, 02:08:
19 million players and yet the active player count is not that much higher than BF4. Hard to believe so many suckers paid $50+ for that...but actually now that I think about Battlefront which was pretty much the exact same soulless husk of a game that stupid asshole gamers paid a lot of money for.

BF1 (aside from Hardline...spin-off doesn't count) is the first Battlefield game I haven't purchased at launch, let alone it's launch year.

The cheapest I can find it for from a 'key' site is $35...that's a joke for the base game, I wouldn't pay more than $15 on it's best day.

Double-bonus edit: Oh, and EA can fuck right off as long as they keep fragmenting their community with their dumbass premium MAP DLCs.

I've been a die hard fan since 1942. Owned them all, some on multiple platforms.

Hardline was the last for me. I enjoyed it (not as much as the others), but it really did start the downfall of the series. I didn't even try the Star Wars one (despite being beautiful) because you could see how shallow it was from videos.

It's sad, and they're still insanely profitable over it.

The story is truly god-awful, but just skip the cutscenes and do the missions, and most of the challenges are quite fun, as are some of the achievements. (NY to LA in, I believe, 45 minutes is a cool one to try to get.)

There are some faction races that are hours long. Tour of the usa, east coast to west coast etc... absolute blast that can end in near rage if shit goes too sidewasys near the end.

I stopped putting effort into my points when my fellow conversation participant compared selling Porches to Video Games.

What? You mean the luxury car company with the highest profit per unit isn't comparable to video games? How can it be!

Next you'll say vacation property prices don't effect video game prices.

News Comments > ESO: Morrowind Trailer
2. Re: ESO: Morrowind Trailer May 2, 2017, 23:00 Dacron
 
Would've paid good money for this in a singleplayer format. Was pretty much the first free roam game, and first RPG I fell down the rabbit hole with.

All I remember from Elder scrolls online was constant load times between areas, really wouldn't do Morrowind justice IMO, even though the trailer makes the cities look GREAT. I recognized the trailer thumbnail as the landing from the very start of Morrowind before reading what it was.

Sigh. Time to start another Morrowind playthrough.

Log in and play GTA Online on PS4, Xbox One or PC at any point between now and Sunday, April 30th to be eligible for a GTA$425K tax refund compliments of the San Andreas State Treasury Department, to be deposited in your Maze Bank account during the month of May.

Like that matters after recovering my stolen/hacked account with 4 properties, yacht, 60 cars, and 107 million dollars.

They weren't even trying to make a whole game, just import the RDR map into the GTA V engine. It's been done with almost every other GTA game by now and they get away with it because they don't provide any of the actual game files, just a tool that pulls from copies of the games you provide. It almost makes you wonder why they're being especially protective of RDR...


PORT PORT PORT!!!!!

A man can dream.

If Take-Two are smart, they would hire them and will give them what they need to do it properly.

Assuming Take 2 didn't port it. It'd be genius, like a GTA V release.

Release RDR2 on consoles, release RDR PC port. 1 year later, RDR2 for PC. Much more interest due to new gamers being introduced to RDR, and guys with good PCs will still likely buy RDR2 on console (if they have one), like GTA 5, due to no PC announcement.

That's my dream anyways. i just want RDR on PC damnit.

and if EA or activision tried to make this game, it'd cost more and take longer because they wouldn't be as dedicated. CIG is a purpose-built organization


GTA 5 was made for less money (made, not including advertising) and in 5 years.

Your comparisons are out to lunch. A dedicated, established dev team would have done this sooner, and cheaper. I dont understand how you think building a company as you go along is cheaper/quicker than using established, proven sources with a track record of releasing finished games and not selling partial ones...

And comparing Chris Roberts to Elon Musk to missing dates ? Time to get the blinders off.

Renegade was one of those games that the demo was so complete that I never felt the need to buy the game. I probably had 50 hours in the demo. It was a good map - I could basically singlehandedly dominate it and win for my team, even with the team objectives. Looking back, maybe this was because the skilled players bought the game and I was solely playing newbs, but... still really dug the demo.

All I remember is one of the fields (in between bases) with a few large rock/hill formations to hide behind. The tank vs tank battles that happened on it were amazing.

Vehicle driving, cars/trucks weren't too bad. Its still no racing game style driving but better than some I've experienced. The helicopter flying feels off, can't place my finger on that one but its funny.


Helicopters are just slow to start.

Hold forward (pitch down?) / ascend for about 10 seconds, then let go of forward. You'll keep your speed, and now forward/backward just control your elevation. You keep a good rate of speed and change altitude quickly.

The attack helicopters make short work of convoys, lots of fun.

I didn't play this, but from the videos it looked like Just Cause: Ghost Recon.


There is a radio clip when driving that starts with a chime/bell like Just Cause (chime) that combined with the car, scenery, and driving responsiveness gave me just cause 2 flashbacks.

I also liked the closed beta. It's great cause you can make your AI teamates do nothing - they can't be spotted or ruin you, allowing you to scout a camp/base and take out sentries in order to not raise any alarm/stay undetected the whole time. Was enjoyable but I ran out of stuff to do.

Funny that they test it on Blizzard's game(Overwatch) instead of their own game.

This was my first thought from my just woken up brain. I think it's really the codename of the human checkers instead, but amusing none the less.

Why not? It'd give people more reason to whine at valve

Battlefield already did Vietnam, and it wasn't exactly their best selling title. They may always give it another whirl, of course.

As far as good Vietnam shooters go, try Vietcong (for single player.) It's old and sometimes rough around the edges, but it was a very memorable game.

Oh my god. The menu music.

I could listen to the first bit (before it goes into a harder rock) on loop forever.
