I liked the first season of Walking Dead and hated the second. I was pretty disappointed in Wolf Among Us and thought Game of Thrones was, by far, their worst entry. Didn't bother with the Borderlands one. The quality trend is going the wrong way.
I agree about Walking Dead Season 2, the beginning and ending felt forced to me, like bad writing to create an artificial situation. Tales of the Borderlands was a lot of fun for me, it was really funny and didn't kill off people just because it could.

Why didn't you like Wolf Among Us? I really enjoyed that one, and it got me into the Fables comics to boot.

I enjoyed the story. It definitely lured me in. But I didn't like the way they kept presenting us with fake "choices". And forcing the desired outcome regardless. I remember that I finally got tired of the Tweedles fucking with me so I opted to kill them both. There must have been a half dozen characters all telling me to not do it. Telltale REAAAALLY didn't want me to even try. By the end I was just fed up. I'd rather it be a tv series on HBO, than a game. It was the same with game of thrones when they kept trying to get you to submit to the Whitehills. In the end I kept refusing to spite Telltale.

I think you probably need to change your expectations. None of these games (or these kinds of games) is going to let you tell your own story. You're simply changing the details of the story being told, not the major plot points. This is true of any game that lets players affect the narrative.

Well I definitely have different expectations of Telltale's games now. I kept wanting them to be Walking Dead season 1. But clearly they've moved past that. Their new type of adventure games isn't one that I'm going to enjoy, so I just won't invest in any more of these.

But I still want that Wolf Among Us TV series.

Had a blast playing INSIDE.
It's spectacular. It put a smile on my face, the same one Another World put on me.
TBH, the ending doesn't make this game justice...but the rest is just...wow.

About the ending, it felt just like the Monty Python And The Holy Grail.
There's that music played in a loop-like way with a black screen, you expect something else to happen...you wait...wait some more... And boom. Credits.

I liked Inside but feel it's being somewhat overrated. Yes it was really atmospheric. The art and animations were all top notch. But the puzzles were really easy. It won't take you more than a minute or two to solve any of them. And the ending was terrible. The secret ending was just as terrible.

Oh I expect them to be just as dull. Elite tried to add some unexpected interest with the supercruise by adding interdictions. But they mostly succeeded in annoying people.

If it takes you 10m to destroy a single enemy in elite you're definitely doing it wrong. The small ships I can have down in a couple seconds. The bigger ones maybe a minute or two.

Otherwise you're making nothing but assumptions based on a few short videos that don't reveal hardly any content at all. Right now there's no evidence to assume that they've made any of that gameplay interesting.

I do agree Elite makes long range travel boring. I'm not a big fan of their supercruise implementation.

Yeah, I'm with you on this. It'll be interesting to see if this will be more interesting than Elite. Right now I'm expecting it to be exactly as boring.

Elite has missions, numerous ships of different classes and a robust trading system. I think No Man's Sky is even more barebones, other than the pretty planets? I liked Elite for what it was. I'm wary about this one though.

Elite has its flaws, but other than the animal life it's already doing everything they're promising NMS can do. I'm not entirely sure why people think NMS will be that much better.

I'm hoping there's some cohesive gel that makes the game super fun that just doesn't show in the videos, or that they're intentionally keeping secret.

Also, I will be extremely disappointed if you guys who do buy it don't immediately name every animal of the same sort that you find, a Florp.

Oh I preordered. For as much as I bitch about it, in the end i'm a space sim slut. Don't judge me. I'll be the first to come here and give some details

Yeah that's what concerns me too. They've shown this game a few times now and so far I don't see much for gameplay. Elite let's you seamlessly land on millions of planets too. But there's not much to do down on them. It's been getting a bit more interesting lately with the alien plant life that has been found on some planets in nebulas. But that's all been added by the devs for some big alien mystery they're preparing.

Because we've seen this done before. And we're baffled why the internet has been circle jerking to this game for the last 2 years. Hell, why don't you just play elite? It already does everything this game promises except for the alien animals that you can't really interact with.

I like how they announced that exactly after the Steam sale was over. I almost bought this during the sale, my kids liked the beta on Xbox and it was cheap. Whew!

True enough. The world is a weird place. Just read an article earlier today about a fight in a campground. Resulted in a man throwing a propane tank into a campfire. What were they arguing about you ask? The man was trying to convince a woman that the world was round, not flat...

There's a difference between sneaking it via patch into an OS you bought years ago VS installing an OS you know has it, right off the bat. You know that, right?

Your smart phone spies/collects/sends telemetry on you 24/7 despite what options you turn off.
You know that, right??

Selective caring hurts credibility.


Where did I say I don't care about that?

I think he's just saying that Google knows more about us now than Microsoft ever will. We see a lot of people talking about the privacy issues with Windows 10, yet we freely tell Google everything about ourselves and let their phones and apps track everything we do. Yet they don't get the same vitriol from the gaming community.

5. Re: PS4 games will be 'an awful lot prettier' on PS4K, says Sony Jun 14, 2016, 14:28 Bundy
 
Creston wrote on Jun 14, 2016, 13:55:
Sony is full of crap. If I pop my Uncharted Remastered collection into the PS4K/Neo, it's going to look exactly the same as it does on the current PS4, because that's what it's been coded to look like. It's not going to magically get new art assets all of a sudden.

Getting upsampled to 4K (or whatever) is going to be barely noticeable when the game was designed for 1080p.



My thinking exactly.

I think Sony and MS both want devs to take the PC dev approach and have low and high settings for each game like in the PC world. The game would detect your console and adjust it's settings accordingly. But that just adds up to more dev work in the end. But perhaps less than if they were supporting 2 console generations at the same time.

We'll see.

I enjoyed 2. Not sure I'll get 3, racing games are pretty iterative with each release. Gotta give them a few years before the leap is enough to spend money on the new one.
