News Comments > Torment in February

14. Re: Torment in February Dec 15, 2016, 19:10 Task
 
A sequel would be a major stretch, maybe - my understanding is that this is based on P&P Numenera which is a lot 'like' the Multiverse of Planescape. The only way this would be in any way connected would be to think of this one as maybe in another "verse," which may or may not be connected to the Multiverse of Planescape of D&D. In otherwords, its another Torment-Like RPG with Sci-Fi Fantasy on Crack, and like the original - meant to have elements of weirdness, grotesque, philosophical musings, anything is possible, etc. Maybe there will be easter eggs, but we ain't saving the Nameless One, that dude's stuck in the Eternal battle of the Blood War.

Some friends of mine got this, I guess I'll see what they say. I'm interested to see if anyone attempts to mod stuff (if it is in any shape or form moddable that is).

I'm just glad that Microsoft at least allowed something to be done with the Age of Empires franchise by this group, even if they are simply adding to an old game engine. All that MS did with the franchise was totally decline it that f2p crud.

For the longest time I wanted MS to at least consider doing the same for Mech Warrior, such as making more content for 4 and had allowed MekTek to continue.

News Comments > Sniper Elite 4 Hitler Preorder Bonus

6. Re: Sniper Elite 4 Hitler Preorder Bonus Dec 13, 2016, 20:42 Task
 
These Sniper Elite games have a huge hardon for killing Hitlers and "dem Nazi's." Don't they ever expand to include other fronts and nationalities? Like recreate scenarios of known snipers from all sides based on memoirs, during that period. A Finnish example would be Simo Hayha "The White Death", Russian Woman Lyudmila Pavlichenko and Roza Shanina, German Gefreiter Kurt Spengler during his famous last stand at Caen.

Should be plenty of material.

It's on the GOG wishlist: https://www.gog.com/wishlist/games#search=sudden

I had one of the Sudden Strike's, but I have no idea where it went. They definitely do not play like Men of War, since you can't take control of an individual unit for complete control what it shoots and when.

Waaaaay to much nickle and diming with this title. I am very disappointed and wish I hadn't bought it now.

Isn't that Warhammer's MO?

It's been Sega and Creative Assembly's M.O. for a while now with Total War in general.

They should encourage PGI instead to get better and develop an MP component (in other-words includ dedicated server software and utilize what the Unreal engine offers for that), a staple of every MW game, to MW5 and simply let the players go wild with it making their own servers, game modes, etc.

The only MW game that had player-run dedicated servers was MW4. MW2 and 3 were peer-to-peer -- MW3 was kind of the most peer-to-peer thing ever. The original MW was a singleplayer-only game.

I don't think it's really possible to play MW3 at all nowadays, since the physics were tied to the clock speed or frame rate or something. It goes haywire and sends 'Mechs flying if you try to jump, if you walk on certain hills, or any other time at all.

You know exactly what I mean regardless. Multiplayer without the gimmick of server-authoritative nonsense, purely controlled by players. And yes it is possible to get MW3 working, I have - there's fan support out there for it on the interwebs. Just lots of hoop jumping that most people don't care for.

After thinking about it, a wait and see approach may be best. Of course everyone see's "MW5" and rejoices, but PGI doesn't have any of the industry veterans on board in their company as far as I'm aware. I don't understand why they don't try to reach out to those from past titles.

Also as far as the "f2p" fans of MWO, I took a look on their forums and some aren't so pleased thinking MWO will be abandoned. Ok - so let's say MW5 turns out to be above average, not shit (that could be a long shot, I'll give PGI the benefit of the doubt, no pre-order money though, but looking at MWO even basic shit like the menu is shovel-ware tier grade) - I don't understand why the "f2p" fans would even want MWO to continue. They should encourage PGI instead to get better and develop an MP component (in other-words includ dedicated server software and utilize what the Unreal engine offers for that), a staple of every MW game, to MW5 and simply let the players go wild with it making their own servers, game modes, etc.

I see the choice for them as simple, do they want to continue pouring money into a shoddy f2p format, where they don't even own their virtual goods which are on a server somewhere that could be shut down at any time or do they want a product that could last far longer by a traditional model, returning MW back to its roots. I think of it this way - to this very day it is still possible to play MW2, 3, and 4 Mutliplayer - by way of fan support, long after the shelf-life of those games of which are not even sold anymore.

Pyro don't forget there are other 'decent' f2p titles - what makes those good is the designers and their goals. The leads of PGI has a lot to do with why MWO is shovelware-like.

Anyway s, this apparently will not have an extra attached bonus of dedicated MP like every past actual MW title. I'm assuming they want to funnel people into the sadder f2p one, "want MP like the golden age with highly customizable multiplayer servers? Too bad, pony up and get ready for grinding in MWO."

I redub this game Talos I.

Talos I looks interesting.

But, will there ever be a return of Domasi "Tommy" Tawodi for actual Prey 2 in the future? I want to play that, one of the few games ever with Cherokee mythology in it (with weird stuff sprinkled on top).

So wait, the teammates were AI. The previous gameplay video I watched had human teammates in co-op. Is this campaign playable co-op, or was the co-op a separate game mode (which I can't stand)? This game looks interesting, but only if I can play it with my friends.

The video title says "Solo Campaign Gameplay", but I don't know if that means, "playing the campaign solo", or specifically "solo campaign mode".

The description for the game states it is Single and Multi Coop. AI takes the place of human players if you don't have anyone or don't want to play with anybody.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, I was expecting a MechWarrior running the Unreal 5 6 or whatever the latest engine is... Not expecting that :/


How did you think this was a MechWarrior title? I mean BattleTech is pretty much a hint for 'TableTop-Like.'
