I'm amazed that, with all of these spectacular failures, MS is still a relatively strong company. How many disastrous failures can they ultimately endure? This can't keep going on forever.
They are just cleaning up Ballmer's mess.

I played 5 hours of the new Doom SP and it was exactly what I expected. So far it's a 7.5 for me. There's major flaws in the game that could easily have been prevented. I can't understand why they made these decisions. Mostly, the engine has texture issues, the glory kills are a terrible and make the combat worse, it's all about "enter clear fight area, area locks, enemies spawn out of nowhere, kill enemies, area unlocks" and there's never really more than 6 enemies at a time. The level design is great though, much better than the linear bullshit we get in games nowadays.

Glory kills are optional and you can get a rune that speeds them up. I thought I was going to hate them but they really aren't bad and don't disrupt the flow of combat.

As for the area lockdowns, I thought that they actually worked pretty well thanks to the level design. Each lockdown area is like a mini-Quake arena and is fun to fight in. Dealing with waves of enemies forces you to keep moving and take advantage of the full combat space. It actually captures the Quake multiplayer experience really well.

If anything, glory kills speed up the flow of combat. They make things faster, and they keep you with ammo, health and armor.


YES, thank you! My thoughts, EXACTLY. It does IMPROVE the entire combat flow IMO

Skip intro didn't work for me. Anyone else have issues?

Same, although I put them in without quotes, I'll try with quotes, etc.

Looking at their other commands, it should probably be:

+com_skipIntroVideo 1, not just +com_skipIntroVideo.

Reasoning: com_skipKeyPressOnLoadScreens 1, +set m_smooth 0, they all seem to be boolean toggles.

*EDIT* yep, works with +com_skipIntroVideo 1
It does but now there is a significant delay until the start screen appears...

Are you kidding? I am an old school Quake/UT player. I wanted to hate it but it was awesome. Instant buy on release.

That Nvidia video is what they need to have been showing. NOW I'm interested. I don't understand why that one looks so damn fast and everything else, all the other SP and MP videos, looks so much slower.

Agreed. It looks fast, and the amount of enemies looks like old Doom (except now with jumping, but man, he's jumping all over the place to pick enemies off without staying still. Just totally working the room like I feel I used to in DM maps.)
Oh boy, I'm so gonna play that on hard difficulty tonight and I usually always play on easy

News Comments > Overwatch Beta Not Changing Much for Launch
5. Re: Overwatch Beta Not Changing Much for Launch May 6, 2016, 12:02 Flo
 
I never really got into TF2. I still play Q3 (now Quake Live) matches every other day or so.
Played about an hour of the open beta now and found it better than expected. There's a lot of variety offered by all the available heroes and a skilled player of 90s shooters will definitely find a character that suits his/her playstyle. I didn't like the rocket launcher hero because it doesn't feel like q3's RL
Didn't see any signs of unlocks or pay-to-win. You get some cosmetic items when you level up but I tend to ignore that crap.

Isn't there also 70 gigs of video you can either download or watch if you have internet connection?
That's available on the Xbox One and I haven't seen it in the PC version.

This game is more complete than AotS. It has a much better single player campaign for example.
Despite that I found that AotS has the better gameplay. For example, I was not able to get my units in DoK to move in formation, whereas the army system in AotS is pretty nice.

Yeah, I'll be grabbing this at some point I'm sure. Anyone actually have it yet? Thoughts? I know I'd like a shot at a new life in the off-world colonies! A chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure!
Played about 5 hours in early access. I remember that the matches were pretty fast. I was constantly managing my "portfolio" of resources and trying to buy out my competitors. Have to give it another shot tonight.

I like it. It's kind of 4x-light, streamlined and with clean graphics. The grand-strategy-crowd will want to wait for Stellaris, though.

ItBurn wrote on Apr 15, 2016, 12:45:
Some reasons that have nothing to do with the all-female cast as to why the trailer sucks:
- A lot of the ghosts look like clowns and cartoon characters. The ghosts and monsters in the original Ghost Busters were actually creepy as f***.
- The ghosts are all neon blue and the whole movie looks like a kids toy. The original movie had a somewhat gritty look that's completely lost.
- The humor is terrible and what they say is dumb. They actively tried to make the best trailer they could with some of the best parts of the movie and that's what they ended up with...
- This is too early to tell, but the male character seems objectified in the trailer. It wasn't the case in the early movies for the female one. There's nothing wrong with objectifying someone in my opinion, but it's simply not "Ghost Buster".
- Everyone was a relatable average joe, but in this, everyone is... too much.
- There are tons of cliche stereotypes in the trailer.
- Everything is CGI and looks terrible. The old movie had tons of practical effects.
I guess that's perfectly fine for the I-text-during-movies-crowd

I think this was the game with the SJW consultant EA hired? If so, I'd wait for reviews unless you like a social justice agenda story with your gaming.

Would you kindly f-off to Red Pill or somewhere similarly appropriate with this tedious SJW bullshit? For once there`s an exciting game on the horizon and I have to read about a "consultant"?

Seriously, the goddamn game is not even released yet and the hard-done alpha males (yeah, right) bawww already, for no reason at all.

Get a grip, wasn`t it supposed to be that disgusting womanfolk who`s into drama and constant whining? What happened to the real man`s cojones, amigo?
This.
