so,.. Free to play - but we are going to charge for every character , good gun, colors and possibly every new map that comes out that we can think of later ???

Cause we should totally ignore the fact that studios need money to keep the lights on. (hi i am a gamer, but dont really care about the health of the industry).

I do not have technical problems with UWP. I have a problem with the lack of choice:

  • You HAVE to use W10. Not because of technical reasons, but because MS wants to force everyone on W10.

  • You HAVE to use the W10 Store. Instead of other clients like Steam or uPlay or Origin or even DRM-free on GOG.


  • The lack of choice is what disappoints me. MS can keep their exclusives and they clearly do not need my money. I am irrelevant to them as paying customer. Which is fine. There are other ways. And other games of course


    Fair enough, i assume on that note, you have not played or purchased battlefield1, battlefield 4, any modern blizzard title, halflife 2.... or any of the modern epic games (examples go on and on)....

    This kind of stance is fine mate, as long as its consistent, if you are consistent - fair play to you. if not, well... uhhm.

    The problem i have with all the bitching about UWP apps is when Microsoft come out and admit some of the issue, and resolve to fix them, no-one remembers and carry's with the salty bile on places like blues.

    Now M/S are a long way from fixing all the problems, but they have started to address a number of the issues outlined in this topic (side loading software for 3rd party support, vsync-gsync issues, overlay support).

    But its OK, we can all carry on being angry; people also seem to confuse DRM with platform limitations - they are not the same thing, stop making assumptions about peoples intentions, anyone who listens to phil spencer (actaully listens) can see that on the whole he is a reasonable guy - he cant and wont wave a magic wand over every issue, but he does apply focus where he can to resolve things (i am no MS fany boy btw, but on the whole other than a few mis steps the games that have come out on the store platform have been of high quality [gears4, forza, halowars2]).

    former ranked Quake 3 player, played id products since wolf 3d, halo was a pile of shit for console weenies that didn't know better. id took so long to ship doom3 that people already had better tech on the xbox those products made more money then doom3 did, now doom3 was a good single player game that could make you jump a few times but if you measure what happened with EA and Activision using the Quake 3 engine and what id did with their own code it a fucking joke how far they fell behind so fast when they were in first place they fell down and down. IW kicked ass, EA's MOH wrecked them, EA Bond AUF team wrecked them, all using Carmacks code. id failed to grow into a modern developer, they had very talented developers but no modern development methods, not enough bodies to generate content before the tech became passed by others in the case of Doom3. Trust me I know this all first hand.

    does not change the fact that doom2016 and quake champions are both good games.

    Your shitty multiplayer infrastructure was not apparent with your testing? Methinks you should rephrase that sentence to "correct issues that were not apparent with a cursory glance, as we did no testing whatsoever."


    were not apparent cause we could not be arsed listening to our player base. shame really, mechanically i really like the game.

    The real problem of "for honor" is and remains the fact that I could be playing Mount and Blade instead.... and command armies, do quests, become king.

    For Honor is like 10% of Mount and Blade, very polished, very smooth combat, but also very formulaic and stone-beats-paper style combat.. I didn't like it at all. The combat is basically a fancy quicktime event.

    I dont get the comparison.

    one of these games is a multiplayer object game with medieval combat. The other one is a single player action rpg type game with medival combat.

    its like saying that Injustice is the same as Batman: Arkham Knight.

    But even so I can easily compare the combat between the 2... 1v1 combat in Mount and Blade MP (a thing since Warband AFAIK) is pretty intense, and a lot less quicktime event feeling than For Honor.



    ohhh shit, in all honesty mate i didnt realise it had multiplayer thesedays, i shall shutup - sorry for being miss informed.

    This game isn't even played. I think only roughly 500 people are playing this, right? Why double price, instead of cut in half.

    according to steam charts....

    62,119
    24-hour peak

    100,723
    all-time peak

    so nope, though for some reason its not showing up on the main listing you have to search for it. but no, its immensely popular.

    edit: ohh wait they are patching and the servers are down... that will be it.

    Tried Anarki last night. I mean, I have like 40,000 favor, but the whole renting for 24 hours thing really bothers me. Were it "rent for 60 in-game minutes" or "5 matches" I'd be down with it, but 24 hours feels like I need to be around to play to get value. Which may be what they want, but for me personally, rather than incentivize me to play more it incentivizes me to rent less. I don't want to feel like not playing one more match means I'm missing out on something.

    Also, I hated Anarki. Not being able to open an empty map to get a feel for the character you just rented is dumb.

    Id like a "try out" type function, maybe on a movement assault course would be great. I honestly feel some of your points (whilst really valid mate, not trying to belittle them) are somewhat mitigated buy how easy it is to accumulate favour.

    I honestly think ill be buying the game in either-case if i spend any time with it, so its kinda a none issue personally.

    Oh that's super weird, I played in the one two weeks ago and now this one. Never had to rent or unlock though I understand that's how the final game will be.

    I started off playing only Slash but the wide health differences between her and the heavies was pretty annoying and un-quake like. Now I'm playing Visor to essentially have the same speed but with a little more health and armor.

    Betas weekends prior to that had champion renting. All thought i supposed like this one, it might be conditional on when you joined the beta phases.

    To be honest is very easy to earn enough favour to rent a champion and if rocket jumping is part of your movement behaviour, Ranger is the best at it in any case :-)

    Pretty much agree with everything in your post there Beamer...

    But one technical aspect,
    Since they're not all unlocked (and I'm now level 10 without having played a single other hero), it's hard to really know what you're up against: you need to play as a hero to really get it.

    At least the past two betas (maybe more) have had all of the heroes available, none of them are locked down.


    They are not locked down, you just need to rent them. Anyone form last beta also has them all unlocked as though they bought the game. but anyone new is back to renting for favour. So....

    Out of interest Beamer, given you have played for some time, why have you not tried a few more? (you must have the favour for it).

    News Comments > Dawn of War III Released
    17. Re: Dawn of War III Released Apr 27, 2017, 17:10 Theo
     
    The people calling this a moba are head in hands dumb frankly... The thing is that the objective is similar (IE kill the enemys "core"), but other than that its a very relic style RTS with hero units that require you to do a little micro management (as to be expected from a DOW game).

    Honestly the steam reviews of this are everything that is wrong with steam reviews.

    For me, i am enjoying it - its not quite what i wanted from a DOW game, but i will get my moneys worth i think.

    techncially it feels a bit rough, a few frame rate issues - options not sticking the options menu etc. hope that gets patched up soon.

    Hmm, any idea why Valve would be instituting this change now? Given all the work that goes into increasing your ranking, I'm not immediately seeing why someone would want multiple accounts, or why it would be a problem for Valve.

    without speaking to how effective this is.

    Smurfing is a huge problem on the DOTA/LOL/HOTS scene.

    Its pretty fun for a high level player (who doesnt make much progress anymore), to start a new account and blaze through the lower ranks for fun.

    It fucks things up for the lower ranks though, and skews all the match making generally.

    It needs to be stoped. i dont know this is the right way though.

    I honestly though 343 did a great job with Halo 5, and especially as they are just updating and droping DLC for free, buy game get tones of content. Sure the campaign was a little short, but it was pretty good (not the best, but v good none the less).

    My only regret is that unlike other microsoft series, they have not put it out on windows 10 (gears 4 is on windows 10, as is forza horizon etc) and they are all exceptionally good ports.
