You guys it's a Far Cry game, if you're looking for a deep political meaning you're a fool, and if you're actually seeing one doubly so. It's just a hyper-dumb excuse for violence and action like most every action flick out there, and ultra-religious/redneck/"true patriots" as baddies is very extremely not a unique thing in popular media.

Stop trying so hard.

DAI was a huge game and maybe some of us do not even care about certain members of the old cast?

Yeah, already had this from BG to BG2, where characters I didn't even know existed or discarded immediately were Big Deals. Not only did I understand most of what they were on about, but these days it'd be a lot more work for something most players "won't get".

(plus yes, I never used Solas in my game)

This really isn't a republicans-only thing, even if their motivation in this instance may be; HRC was (and I guess still is) fairly anti-games herself.

Typical corporate bullying tactics. Wouldn't stand up in court, and would be subject to a SLAPP countersuit.

'tis fake, though.

That, and the latency. It feels like I'm back to early ADSL, with replays showing 2 second differences in action times vs what I experienced, and you can't compensate shots without a ping display.

Do XBox games also give you the same title on Windows? I could see that as being a selling point.

MS published / first party games do. From 3rd parties, no, not afaik (though I guess there may be some exceptions).


I can't imagine MS buying Valve; HL3 is dead, TF2 has been surpassed, Portal is fun but in same boat as HL. There's DOTA, I guess. Steam will just split into its own thing, no way would the people running that sell their control over the golden goose.

PUBG, honestly who cares. I like and play the game, but it's a mess, can't imagine MS owning it could make it any worse.

EA would be amusing just for the industry shakeup factor, but I don't see it happening.

Really liked DA:O just for existing, even if it wasn't "BG3".

DA2, I really liked the story, but as mentioned, the combat encounters were horrible on Hard or above difficulty; you had to charge with your caster/ranged because otherwise reinforcements would spawn on them, or they'd just be one-shot by a hidden rogue.

DA3 I got to the last 10% and disliked the area design so much and cared so little about the characters and what was going on I just forgot to keep playing one day. I'll get back to it eventually just for completion sake.

I dunno, am hopeful because I like western RPGs, but not hyped... Hopefully after the hatewave EA got over Battlefront and people tearing into ME:A's launch quality, it'll be decent.

I really liked Fable 2, and 3 was fun, though felt less and less like "what was promised". And, I dunno, I thought story and the comedy were fine.

As for the studio being known for racing games, that doesn't mean much. Plenty of studios are known for only one genre and then do perfectly well with a completely different one. Most important part really is that they have a good management/production structure and culture, rest is transferable knowledge and hiring.

CCP has been a joke for a long time. They have been pay-to-play for years now.

No fucking shit, they've been pay to play since day one and were one of the last few non F2P-option MMOs until last year (though allowing F2P grey market for years prior).

Unless you meant pay to win, in which case no fucking shit, they've been vocally pro-alt use and extreme meta since they launched over fourteen years ago.

Needs more lootboxes and other such bullshit. Wait a minute it already has that. I can't help but these lootbox shit is really pissing me off. I didn't like random loot drops in games like diablo when it first came out and I sure as hell don't like lootboxes now.
The only stuff in those boxes is vanity. You start every match with your basic class weapons and only gameplay stuff gives you money for stuff, that of course vanishes away when the match ends.

If neon-green gun skins being in loot boxes and random drops is really the issue that breaks a game, well I don't know what to say anymore.

I bought this game on a cheap sale despite not really caring too much for it when I got into the beta.

I was hoping it would be my new L4D fix but it's far from it. It plays too arcadey and feels too hectic at times. Almost like too much is going on and too many arrows/markers showing you where or what you have to do. It gets crazy.

While L4D had a more organic feel to it and the sense of dread around a corner, this game just feels like chaos. Graphics aside, it's pretty damn weak all around.

Never had an issue with UI overload, though maybe I just turned stuff off early on and forgot about it... Anyway, the game is just horde mode. If you want a simple shooting gallery with nice guns and extreme violence, it's good. If you want anything resembling objectives more involved than "survive by killing" or a story of any kind, it's very much not good.

An actual story based game for KF could be neat, but I can't imagine TWI making it.

Is this too difficult for SP only? Seems like they really want you to play COOP.

Can you add ai bot team players ala L4D?

No bots. Difficulty scales fairly well with number of players, so a starting player at Normal difficulty should have a fun time, not too easy, not too hard or frustrating. Can scale how long the matches are, as well (it's just horde mode with waves and a final boss, though some maps have mini objectives). Add more players and waves get more mooks, and mooks get more HP.

Playing solo is still a lot of fun, the game is fairly "tight", and I find it's a great stress reliever. Certainly worth the download and trial unless you have a really crappy bw cap.

News Comments > Middle-earth: Shadow of War Expansion & Patch
3. Re: Middle-earth: Shadow of War Expansion & Patch Nov 22, 2017, 07:06 Rilcon
 
It is pretty much Shadow of Mordor but More; most everything was expanded on heavily, both content and mechanics. Which I think is what most people wanted.

The lootbox thing is weird. I don't mean the drama, just that they even exist. The normal ones are essentially free given how much money the game showers you with (quests, drops, recycled gear, RNG missions...), and the "premium" ones just have slightly better stuff/chances, but the currency used is given out daily for really simple tasks ("stealth kill X guys, 50 coin"), so if you're really jonesing for one of them you can "earn" the money in 2-4 days of 20 minute sessions playing the game normally.

I can't imagine they're making more money out of it than it was worth to put in; on finishing the main quest (which was... disappointing) I thought to purchase everything I could, and after half an hour of sitting through "unboxings" got tired. I currently have in reserve 290ish epic orcs, 40ish normal, and 80ish legendary, and haven't touched a one. And still 130k monies and 600ish gold-monies. I think the only value is relocation orders if I ever wanted to stack up a fort with my favourite lads, and I think I have two dozen of those already.

Plus with a few of the bugs here and there (Minas Murgol fort and spawning is bugged, and captains can randomly be vanished or get replaced for no good reason) I'd probably be pissed if I paid whatever for some orc and he just got deleted the next day.


Still having fun with it, though.

If you ever feel the need to use any of the paid lootboxes you're probably so bad at this game you quit in the first hour. The game drops loads of them for any of the online stuff, and you're rewarded so much money during normal gameplay that the UI doesn't even allow you to spend it all.

I get that there's a stink and a scare over the mere mention of the term "loot box", but this isn't the game where they're a problem.

I think the movies were fine as action movies, but not as "Hitman movies". The focus on the games is always on stealth and infiltration, with gunplay reserved for "everything's gone to hell and I don't want to restart" or just the "stress relief" of plowing through a carefully constructed wonderland with a bulldozer.

what the hell, isn't this the game the humble bundle guy was working in before he struck gold? and didn't he just sell out to IGN? this must have quite a story behind it
As a completely uneducated guess, with Overgrowth finally finished he didn't feel the need to continue working on Humble Bundle, which started as a way to support its development, and has decided to retire from the industry on the high note of publishing his magnum opus (as well as several older indie/experimental games) and a much-beloved shop/charity.

I'll have to reinstall Overgrowth; bought it ages ago, last I tried it was still pretty much just a prototype with an in-game level editor and a few community-made scenarios. But fun, and Lugaru was great.

For monitor, I go windowed and move it from the secondary to the primary, then fullscreen. I have no idea why it wants to start on the secondary screen, only game that's done that in recent memory.

Also yeah, it goes from really basic tutorial to suddenly game very suddenly. Also you didn't forget, SoM you gained health back only from eating herbs or certain action depending on your rune setup (or just fast travelling). There's a lot that's the same and a lot that's different. Probably doesn't help that I left off SoM with everything maxed and about half the abilities start off reset because plot.

Overall I'm really liking it, though. First "real" area I'm fairly sure is larger than both SoM areas put together, and there's certainly loads of different things to do.

DR4 good? I loved 1 and liked 2. 3... I stopped playing as it was just "too easy" and felt like they'd gone too far in the "just do crazy shit" rather than survival.

Trumpians on reddit seem pretty triggered about it. But I'm sure that's a false flag using fake accounts right? Something something Soros something (((globalists)))?

A handful of loud monkeys screeching on reddit of 4chan isn't a controversy... I've seen more hubbub over how Sonic's eyes were drawn in a single specific comic panel from a fan artist than this. Too many people are eager to turn whatever some idiot or nobody says into a "big deal" for attention, be it free marketing or pageviews.

And I still don't know or particularly care about who Soros is, other than that anyone mentioning him for one "side" or the other seems to probably spend too much time on the stupid parts of the internet.

Whole bunch of marketing and ~fake news~; there's no controversy over this game, and pretending there is is as dumb as giving credence to any of the bullshit the WBP spouts about whatever they want to leach off of this week. Shooting nazis in the face is as god damned American as it gets.

Shit, I wouldn't be surprised if Bethesda has people pretending to be "alt-right" just to complain about the game and get it cheap marketing. It's not like it's hard to pretend to be retarded.
