News Comments > Bethesda Holding Back Review Copies
21. Re: Bethesda Holding Back Review Copies Oct 26, 2016, 02:54 MattyC
 
Fallout 4 had its share of issues, but I really feel like that game gets entirely too much hate. I had fun with it and explored the world, built settlements etc. Most fun I have ever had? No, worth the price? Yes (though their upping the price on the DLC was not warranted).

Besides, the worst thing Bethesda generally has to hide is bugs and 1 day or 3 months early, they weren't going to get to those before the general public release. If I am not 100% sure about a game I will just wait for word of mouth and reviews, same as before.

I know I am getting Civ VI, it is inevitable. I have never missed any part of the series other than BE. That said, I think I will have to wait on a sale for this one. Still looks promising though.

You may as well let out your disappointment now. If it's not on PC, I'll simply buy the console it's on.

LOL. Sucker. Console exclusives working as designed.

Are they really a sucker for buying something to play a game they want? I mean it isn't like consoles are all that expensive compared to graphic cards. I prefer the PC, but consoles have their place too.

You got burned by a game that was never released?

None of the WoW expansions have really interested me after MoP. I rather liked MoP, but I hated Cata. Zero interest in the game since.
That's interesting. I would say the exact opposite. I started three weeks after launch quit just before MoP because I thought they clearly had lost it. Came back not long before Legion, really liked what I saw of Warlords and so far I'm liking Legion.

You do know that Pandarians date back to WarCraft right? I don't mean that /s, I was just curious. Many people think that was a WoW invention and IDK why.

DVR is pretty worthless.

It only records the content of one window, if you multi-box and need to record 2 or more windows or a window with 1 or more PIPs, your out of luck. Example, run game in full screen borderless window, and run next copy of game in a borderless window sized as a PIP in the first window. Result, DVR records the first window and leaves a hole where the PIP should be.


How often do you need to record multibox settins from all clients? I don't mean to be a downer, I am just genuinely curious as to how often you think a feature like that would be used and what you would use it for.

There's only two channels on twitch that have more than a hundred viewers right now.

It is 7:40 am EST and they have 11 currently. It regularly pulls in solid numbers. I don't watch it much, but I do see in up in the top 3-5 on the regular.

As for the 'skill ceiling', I guess you just mean it doesn't reward item selection and last hit, but those mechanics have grown thin on some, such as myself. Curious as to what you find clunky though.

PVE content? Is Overwatch dying already, or was that part of the plan all along?

I imagine it was the plan all along. It worked for TF2.

Is it worth jumping back in if you just do the F2P part? I heard it's pretty restricted, but that was when they first introduced it.

If you owned it before, not really. You are pretty much open to whatever. You don't have full subscriber benefits, but is pretty close. If you want to get 7 days of sub time you can use, I will PM you a key and the new community event vehicle key.

Say what you will about the game but the trailers and class stories are some of the best in the MMO genre. Easily the most enjoyable leveling experience I've ever had in spite of being a watered down version of KotOR.

I'll likely give it another go to finish the story of the previous expansion and catch up.

I would have preferred a real new KotOR, but yeah sums it up well. They really do a great job of story telling despite it being a MMO.

I pre-ordered it and I don't regret it. I always expect issues on release on any game. Mafia II was no different and that got ironed out in to a solid game. As I want to continue seeing Mafia games, I support their efforts.

I'll see tomorrow how it runs on my systems and go from there. If it needs a couple of patches, I go back to playing KSP.

I predict it's going to run at 30fps

ha ha

one mans trash is another mans treasure, hope you have fun

Don't make me sad. I was hoping to pick this up after the holidays when it had some more polish.

News Comments > Beyond Good and Evil Sequel Confirmed
17. Re: Beyond Good and Evil Sequel Confirmed Oct 7, 2016, 00:00 MattyC
 
Specifically mentioning, me requesting drm free on GOG, was somehow denying quality games from being published is a form of fault/blame/responsibility. Comprehension is also a form a responsibility. Often used in written and spoken word.

Speechless

Right... Well I don't think you were hijacking trucks full of copies of BG&E and absconding to your hideout on Mt. Evil, so I don't think I was accusing you of that.

My only point was sure it would be ideal for the free copy to be from GoG and while it would be ideal (I would give them massive kudos) it most likely isn't going to happen. Ubi wants to promote Ubi so be realistic. You might want to check into that comprehension thing you were talking about.

I'm guessing it will only be free on ubi's drm site? I wouldn't mind getting this for free on GOG.

How generous of you... BG&E was a greatly underappreciated game, it wasn't say Planescape Torment, but it was as critically undersold.

Who knows if the sequel will be anywhere near as good and DRM shouldn't be forced, but asking for it for free is not going to get more quality games published.
This article is about the sequel and getting the original game for free. It didn't mention which service it was going to be free on. All I did was make my preference known. How the hell do you get to a point, where this is my fault? Yousaidwhat Giggle

I didn't mention fault, so no idea what you are talking about there. Obviously they will most likely put it on their service, which isn't ideal, as that is what they want to promote. That is all I said. Fault?

This game has grown on me a lot the past year. Looking forward to the new hero.

The game has matured a lot in the last year. Usually Blizzard creeps along at a glacial pace, which worried me a little with HotS because I felt it left beta without REALLY leaving beta. That said I think they have really made a fun 'MOBA'... and that is from someone who generally loathes MOBAs.

after they abandoned last gen like a hooker with leprosy.

The 360 had a lengthy run having launched in 2005. It is 2016, time to let that one go.

Don't get me wrong, you can still get tons of fun out of a 360 playing through older titles, but expecting support for something as online focused as Destiny? I don't think that was ever in the cards.

If you want your game to really fail, make it F2P. People love grinding for their stuff.

Some games have gone F2P and made it work (Guild Wars 2 and StarWars TOR and multiple MOBAs for example), but I really don't see it working here.

To be precise, both Guild Wars games have always been free to play once you purchased the game itself.
Which is Buy To Play. Free To Play is fundamentally different, and in an important way.

You can still buy the game, but it just unlocks different features. I would call that F2P. You can download it right now and play the game for nothing.
