Meh, it's not like you gain anything by being alive X years longer other than an infinite potential amount of old-age illnesses and ever lowering reflex speeds... which is gonna kill gaming for you when you are 120

While alive you should live like you want and enjoy, with no regrets.

Damn! I'm gonna need some robot arms or something like that to keep me in the game

Taste of something is not hard to fake

Tell that to the "veggie bacon" in my sister's freezer. Worst thing I've ever eaten.

What do you expect of something with no fat? Fat is what gives bacon taste, without fat, you might as well eat chewgum based protein bars (I ate that, and it tastes like chicken mixed with fish.. funnily this spoiled chicken and fish for me ;p). And since I tried Seitan based bacon alternative I can assure you I know what you mean. It was the last time I *EVER* ate anything that veggies call "meat alternatives". And sadly for my taste buds nothing of these alternatives even tastes well just on it's own merit. (In fact with "not well" I really mean horrid ;p)

I wonder about veggies, because they may talk about health benefits, but to me life wouldn't be worth living without bacon, steak and some fatty cooking every now and then.

Well you don't need to wonder, there have been many many many studies which you can view in your own time. But long story short animal foods, especially fat, are more dangerous than smoking. They massively contribute to cardio vascular disease, which is the biggest killer in the western world. Closely followed by cancer, which a lot of is also linked to eating red meat.

And you might be thinking, well I'm not fat, I go for a run every morning, I cycle etc. Well cholesterol and cancer doesn't really care how fit you are on the outside.

Yeah it tastes good, but even dried biscuits taste amazing, if you've out lived yourself by 20+ years.

Not preaching to anyone, do as you like, but I plan on playing PC games until well into 2100

Holy crap thats a lot of cars and houses in the city/suburbs- makes the city in GTA 5 look like a small country town.

I mean, even from this angle, you couldn't even count those in a day Nevada A-10C

Agreed this is going to be awesome in the Oculus Rift or Vive or whatever else there ends up being.

Really? Is anyone actually calling for this?

I thought they already made a sequel? I think it had Charlie Sheen in it. Either way it was better than the original.

Hey nUbiSoft - this is how you fix a game dude. Please fix Assassins Creed Unity so I can buy it and play it.

I personally would love to roam the wastelands with another person or 3 to share the experiences with.

Most of the loot would find a use if you can trade with your friends too.

And combat is always more tactical when different play styles are involved.

I bet for 1/2 the game you will have a character or two following you around, it might as well be a human controlled one.

I was going to watch this because "Ooo, pretty graphics and 'sploshuns!" when I asked myself, "Do I care," to which the answer was, "I don't care." Not watched.

Well it's jsut as well, because said pretty graphics and sploshuns weren't there - this looks like a B grade version of the previous CoD. Some really nasty looking animations and textures going on there.
As well as generally underwhelming execution of what could be a quite interesting theme.

You know what I do with these trailers? I spend about 3 seconds looking at the youtube play bar at the bottom of the video to see if it contains any gameplay. And then I close it down.

After seeing the clean pixel-less graphics of DooM this just looks like a messy turd.

Although I do like that they made the bad guy in this trailer look a bit like Australia's current Prime Minister

Ok, this "throwback" style is officially played out. It was played out years ago. Learn to use Unity, or UE4, or something else modern that doesn't cost you anything and actually looks good. We never wanted 8/16 bit graphics, they were simply all we had.

Actually this is made in Unity lol. The reason for the pixel art is because that's as good as it can get for a two person dev team.

I don't have a problem with pixel art if it looks good and suits the gameplay. This game ticks both boxes.

This doesn't look like a "me too" type of game, it looks like they just want to make a kick ass game with a dark atmosphere.

Chris Pratt is an egomaniacal idiot. I just saw an article where he basically said he believes that God has singled him out for greatness and his ascent has been fated.

Rolleyes

LOL!

And by god, is he referring to the financial advice gathered through market research and focus groups?

Brand new engine, featuring the same stiff animations from Morrowind lol.

Yeah, the executive producer guy made it pretty clear in the post-interview that the finishing moves are meant for people who suck at shooting enough to let things get right up in their face, lol. Being able to basically insta-kill common enemies up close helps to preserve their admittedly noble goal of keeping the pace of gameplay flowing.

It's too bad they've relegated the chainsaw to fan-service gimmick by making it function the same way... They should've just let you cleave through common enemies more fluidly, without the canned animation, and then made it work like it did before on bigger enemies. That is, you get up in their face and drain health so long as you're grinding into them. Maybe have special kill strokes for the bigger guys only, for a satisfying end to a prolonged battle that has apparently left you with no ammo remaining.


Agreed - the chainsaw would be a lot more fun if wasn't canned animations.

It looks like Doom 2 + Halo 4 + Mortal Kombat. Interesting! Hopefully there are some dark areas too though.

My only real gripes are the canned animations which will get repetitive very quickly. And also the monster design, maybe not as bad when actually playing, but they were all the same colour so I had trouble telling the difference between them. And some of the enemy animations seemed a little on the Disney cartoony side.

But game play looks good, and the music is awesome! They did a good job of making it feel like you are on a stimpak fueled demon killing spree!
