Her business cards read....

Lara Croft
Mass Murderer & Sometime Archeologist


how much of that do you suppose nathan drake is going to share with his daughter? before daddy opened a salvage business he killed hundreds and hundreds of men.

i hope shadow of the tomb raider addresses this in the narrative as the announcement trailer suggested, i'd like to see more game embrace the implications of their gameplay and can't think of any real examples except maybe the recent mediocre Vampyr.

Well, I can't wait. I've played the other 2 several times each. That being said, this footage seems like it could have just as easily come from a game called Rambo, First Blood II, the video game.
it was the same issue with rise of the tomb raider, a lot of pre-release footage was showing creative ways to mow dudes down because i imagine watching 7 minutes of lara croft sneaking through an environment isn't super exciting and most people are probably going guns blazing anyway.

how do you feel about libraries

False equivalence. Libraries are bound by the fact that the value of a book is encapsulated in the media. You can't separate the two, whereas the digital download market has demonstrated that the media and the experience are two entirely different things.

This is why digital storefronts are so popular with publishers - because it annihilates the used games market.

we are discussing used game sales, which necessarily refers to physical media. as you said, the shift to digital distribution has made extinguishing second hand sales of goods trivial.

so how do you feel about libraries?

The used game market is theft, pure and simple. The problem is, most people are too stupid to understand this.

all the major publishers are in "he who controls the spice.." mode with their storefronts and pushing all these AAA games as exclusives to drive adoption instead of actually creating a better or more compelling experience than the current leader.

i think its more simply that they know they have a AAA title that doesn't require exposure via the steam userbase, and don't want to pay valve 30%.

no need to refine the experience or deliver a compelling store front or whatever. why bother? the objective is to maximize profit. i don't think bethesda or acti/blizzard give a shit about hawking anyone else's wares. max profit? mission accomplished.

The 80s is the new 60s.

seems about right, nostalgia seems to run on a 30 year gap. back to the future was the 50s, that 70s show was the 70s, time for the 80s.

Anyone watch the Battle Angel trailer? I hope they work on that CG.

i thought it looked ok.

i'm mostly just blown away to see this movie actually coming to theaters. i remember hearing about james cameron wanting to make this movie when i was back in fucking high school.

too bad Freelancer 2 doesn't have an impatient microsoft to put their foot down, end the feature bloat and release the fucking game.

i'd at least like to see squadron 42 before i hit my 40s, like god damn.

You.... you guys know this is about Dying Light 2, right? That it's being compared to GoT an TW3 by introducing choices which have an impact on a world which has regressed to a "dark age" and a narrative design being provided by Chris Avellone who's worked in some of the most influential, story-driven RPGs ever, yeah?


i am now more interested in this franchise than i have been at any point since its inception.

most of the publishers dontnod shopped LIS to wanted male leads. square enix only took it as is if it was an episodic title since their faith was apparently marginal.

LIS really made the format work, though i admit i didn't play it until all the episodes were released and probably won't bother here as well.

or

Pick one.

i've long now found it really weird that conservatives hold higher learning institutions and the sciences themselves in absolute contempt, but also complain that universities are bastions of "radical liberals", like they think that one doesn't follow from the other.

News Comments > Vampyr Released
3. Re: Vampyr Released Jun 6, 2018, 00:50 Nucas
 
i just skimmed the front page negative reviews at steam. don't like the combat, think it looks janky, "veered into leftist politics" (fucking lol), and complaints that you can't adjust the difficulty - which is true, the game gets brutally difficult if you choose not to feed on people. i love this aspect personally. there's more to being mister good guy than just clicking benevolent dialog options, it's hard and requires discipline and you can always opt out. just murder someone. no big deal, right mister vampire?

i think it's pretty good so far. i got it with the GMG discount myself and consider it money well spent.

the combat isn't very good though. not terrible, not good. just filler. not as mindless as remember me at least.

i never played the descent series but i backed this and have been enjoying it. from what i can tell it really seems like a beat for beat recreation of descent in a modern engine. looks great, the sound design is excellent (i like that the robots almost sound like wild animals) and the soundtrack is noticeably good, i could see myself listening to OST outside of the game. worth picking up, as long as you know what you're in for: 15 levels of completing the same task over and over with a paper thin plot loosely justifying shooting hundreds of robots in weird labyrinths. ie. descent 4.

Developer has had some pretty big failures so I cant in good conscience pre-order.

But by all that is unholy, please be good!

like what? they've only made two games: 'remember me' and 'life is strange'.

i liked both titles quite a bit and this game is 37 dollars on greenmangaming right now with their 25% discount code so i snagged it there. this is one of the only games on my radar for the rest of the year.

Fallout fans that aren't Fallout 4 fans aren't video game fans, they're fans of living in the past and constantly complaining that life has passed them by.

Fuck you too asshole. Im a huge Fallout fan, but I don't include either 3 or 4 on that list for very good reasons, and not because of any of that shit you wrote in that bullshit post. Not a video game fan. Christ.

F:NV on the other hand was very, very good and I felt recaptured that spirit very well indeed and Im happy to say that I thought it was a very good game indeed.

now tell us how grand theft auto was better before 3. lets take this full gatekeeping hipster.
