News Comments > Prey Released
23. Re: Prey Released May 5, 2017, 19:53 Task
 
Still thinking calling it 'Prey' is silly - it's simply being used for name brand recognition.

Game looks like a 'possible' classic in its own way though. I'd probably buy it on steam just to rename it Talos I, Talos Shock, or Typhon Shock to confuse my friends ;).

Now, in the mean time, why doesn't ZeniMax allow the re-release of the original Prey? It's a historical game and belongs to the people man - partner up with Steam and Gog and release it digitally.

Eh, but does it integrate with the excellent interactive menu is the real question. Without that, it's a bust for me.
This is just a game engine replacement. You need to own the original. They are doing other cool stuff like redoing the dynamic MIDI soundtrack.

A game engine replacement for just the in flight stuff? I get that it is a mod, but I want to know if I load up the game the menu is still there and when I press Fly after a mission briefing that it looks like that.

News Comments > Call of Duty: WWII In November

More like 'saw what was happening' and then joined the plot to kill Hitler. A lot of Germans that hated Nazism in the army or otherwise also ended up in concentration camps or simply hung if they were found out.

That's besides the point though, if we think of CoD as purely 'war' stories, here are 5-6+ ideas just off the top of my head:

- American 'Not another Normandy story': An entire Tunisian, Sicilian, and Gothic Line (Italy) Campaign
- British: Entire Burma Campaign, The Invasion of France and Dunkirk, etc.
- German: Literally any front, no FPS-type game from this perspective (only thing I can think of terms of 'story' are RTS games). Examples of stories centered around any of these: Escaping the Korsun Pocket, Early War-through Late War (successes to late war defeat), Operation Bagration (think something like 'Crosses of Iron), a German Fallshirmjager
- Japan: Easy, holdouts such as the Fox of Saipan and others, or a Philippines campaign
- Polish: Early War invasion of Poland, survive and become a Partisan eventually linking up with Russians in late war (OR escaping Poland and joining the "Polish Armed Forces" which included anyone from deserted German Wehrmacht, Russian Evacuees, Polish Evacuees, Evacuees from France)
- Finnish: Easy, the Winter War (and Continuation War).
- Russian: Surviving Operation Barbarossa and end at a major battle such as Budapest or Berlin. Other ideas would be Early War and are pushed back to Sevastopol and surrounded, captured, and escaping to become a Partisan.

And that's not even covering a quarter of possibilities. Plenty of nationalities for a character: Hungarian, French, Vichy French, Scottish, Romanian, Italian, etc. + any number of conflict areas.

Lol I tooootally called it. Just another rehash with 'wow da graphics' and ww2 literally only existing in Normandy and only Amerika won it. All other Nations, especially if they were an 'enemy' get no survive the war story. Hop on an AA gun a 'viscerally' and unrealistically shoot at Stukas G-1s, which are for some reason wasting anti tank shells on infantry. Bonus scenes for COD-Bros with a 'gritty' skull smashing scene inspiring them to sign up at their local recruiter.

Hmm, I wonder that engine that is. Sure reminds of Freepsace - the leader designer did mention having experience with freespace modding.

If there is something new and interesting like a German, Japanese, Finnish, Italian, Romanian, etc story I'm interested. Or even Polish, French, British (in Pacific or Burma), or Russian campaigns. If not, it's going to be the same shit like storming the beach! Or parachuting in the Bocage, greatest hits! with 'wow, the grafix.' Less explored battles or Nations, and less emphasis on kill kounts for kids, more about the futility and horror of war.

News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront II Trailer

From the sounds of it tokens or something like it will still present, since what I read said you need to collect a "resource" to spawn as a vehicle. Sigh. They really want to double down on that shit don't they - how hard is it for them to make it like the first Battlefronts. The one redeeming aspect of this is that it sounds more like there won't be a physical, unimmersive floating token you have to race to. The vehicles were physical spawned resources that you have to hop into to make use of in the earlier ones. They also mentioned like someone said below about revamped Hoth level - mentioning "AT-AT" but not if they are fully and dynamically driveable.

So they are teasing Tie fighter gameplay? For a Battlefront game? Lying sons of bitches, and retarded gamers will still fall for it....

Well that's what I was saying last time in prediction of the "story," it's the same leaked footage. Some sort of sob story to keep fighting for the Emperor (woooo, yeh fight for evvvvil!), Imperialism/Empire is Good, Imperial Remnant thing. Perhaps it has a "twist" and she witnesses atrocities or something.

Unfortunately Drayth there are very few Star Wars games to choose from these days. The choice for Battlefront alone is these new arcade kiddie Battlefronts or the old quasi Battlefront/Battlefield games. I'd much rather the Star Wars game license be opened up to see a glut of things like Warhammer - just go wild with it, surely some gems would be made that rather than how it is now being locked up under EA.

No it was not a "horrific" incident. A case where things spiraled out of control and we're handled poorly, sure. But to say it was "horrific" is just diluting the meaning of the word. Seeing a man in Syria holding two dead babies who were murdered by their own government - THAT is horrific.

Some of those dead babies are Al-Queda/al-Nusra/al-Hiwa victims, FYI. They are very effective at PR these days. And the U.N. has already stated radical groups have access and use crude chemical gas, like chlorine mixtures (which smells, whereas sarin is apparently odorless).

Predictions that will make it shit:

- No custom or dedicated servers to keep game fresh (no ability to make a 1st person only mode, no heroes etc.)
- expensive season pass
- spawn tokens (no fun allowed for immersion, like walking up to a vehicle and entering cockpit in first person and taking off)
- AI spawn ships (cool ships like the TIE Avenger or TIE Defender shall be gated as AI spawns only (no fun allowed cock teasers)
- want to drive AT AT? Too bad, still on rails and you can wait in line to ride on like a rollercoaster. You must be THIS tall to ride.
- no dynamic conquest combat
- crappy single-player tack on story
- and much more

Also the story doesn't look like "rogue one" it looks like a "boo hoo, I'm an Imperial, let's still be an Imperial Empire" story.

The phrases "semi-MMO" and "Destiny-style" just turned this radar blip into an unimportant anomaly. If they can't do KoToR 3 properly without introducing a bunch of grinding casual filler, then my fucks to give are quickly running out when it comes to "BioWare" products. It being 'bigger' than Andromeda also is a poor selling point when all that amounts to is wastes of space and the trashy MMO quests that go with them.

Now - whatever Edmonton is doing in secret, that's the only Bioware thing I have left to be curious about.
