Doesn't really matter even if it were true. We all know they have some skeleton crew working on HL3 for years now. But without it being a priority for the company even its existence doesn't guarantee it'll ever see the light of day.

some douche youtubers "scooped" the skeleton crew thing again back in july, but this time added the detail that the employee they spoke to said a primary motivation now is that valve is afraid of fucking up their money train if gamers "turn on them", "like what happened with mass effect 3".

i replayed half life 2 for the first time in 10 years a month ago and i didn't remember how bad its ai is, or how much of its gameplay revolved around physics gimmicks. it's pretty stale.

valve dragged their feet with 3 and the world moved on.

looks like a digipen presentation.

i would like to take this opportunity to point out that raven software's last game, Singularity, was without a doubt their best work and an excellent take on a time-travel shooter with horror elements and a cool story. it is also 7 dollars on g2a.

I skipped Unity after all the outcry, but I really like Syndicate. It's pretty, the zip line is fun, Evie is cool, and I like the way you can customize each character differently via separate skill trees.

(Though I'd like it just a bit more if it didn't involve kidnapping missions where I end up killing the person, their guards, the police, and anyone else in a 100 yard radius. )

It's certainly not game changing (at all), but it feels more polished, gameplay wise.


that's good to hear, i'm going to need something to segue to after fallout 4. i actually wanted to like unity, but it was just so.. bad.

i really wish they would just leave the retarded GENETIC MEMORY ANCESTOR bullshit behind and fully embrace their lore, because that part is just embarrassingly stupid.

  • ZeniMax/Bethseda (will turn it into a watered down, open-world explore a spaceship game with buggy Gamebryo and Dialog Wheel, and hope the mods will fix it)

  • and of course the power of imagination npc interaction (one npc says to another "stop fidgeting while i get these bandages on you!" meanwhile, both npcs are standing there, looking at each other, motionless)

    simplistic telltale-games/dreamfall-esque gameplay but a great script with a solid emotional core.

    glad i waited for it all to release before i played.. every episode ended with a serious wham.

    +1 to everything you said but, for better or worse, Drew Karpyshyn joined the BioWare Austin studio (SWTOR) and not the folks in Canada who are working on MEA.

    Well shit...

    I would not give him too much credit anyway. ME2 was pretty damn good but the writing of ME1 and KotOR, which he also was involved in, was nothing to write home about (yes, pun intended Wink ).

    I quite liked both ME1 and KotOR. I actually thought the story in ME1 was better than the story of ME2. In any case, he'd still be a thousand times better than that fuckwallet Mac Walters.

    i don't know how a dumbfuck like walters is calling any shots when you've got people like patrick weekes on the team.

    i liked the overarching plot of ME2 the best, it's just too bad every salient plot point is dropped. collectors are making a human reaper on their own (despite this apparently being the function of the reapers) because..? they experiment on unusual races because..? stars are dying because..?

    i may find his movies soulless but jj abrams seems like a great person. he did the same thing with a fan of star trek; personally went to the guy's house to screen it for him 5 months early.

    Is it strange that I'm a little more excited for this than FO4? I mean there seems to be so much new stuff in this game, whereas FO4 just looks like more of the same in a tired old engine.

    bethesda has been making the same game over and over for 14 years. the public has yet to tire of the formula, though.

    i'll pick it up in 6 months after a community hopefully gets rolling and fixes it.

    both games are utterly incomplete

    Nah elite delivered what it promised - an updated version of the classic. It even tacked on some multiplayer.

    In terms of Elite vs Elite Dangerous it's a huge leap forward and a complete update of the original game.

    Unfortunately gamers expect way more these days - but ED did deliver what was promised for me.

    all i expected was what they said they would deliver during the kickstarter: a campaign. that was all i wanted. then they announced ONE MONTH before shipping that the plans were scrapped. i then collected my refund and moved on.

    I don't remember that, wast it some sort of stretch goal? I must have backed it before that came up.

    It never came up. Just another guy with severe reading comprehension issues who hit the pledge button before doing even the tiniest bits of research and who obviously had no clue whatsoever about prior games in the series.

    Frontier promised offline play which unfortunately did not happen but they never promised a (single player) campaign or anything of the sort. The KS website specifically talks of a sandbox and re-imagining the original Elite where you have 100cr and a spaceship and carve your own path in the galaxy... exploring, mining, bounty-hunting, trading, running missions etc.
    You can do all of that in E:D and there actually is story content, too, albeit not in traditional campaign form.

    P.S.: Kickstarter websites can not be edited after the campaign has ended so before anyone else wants to make a fool of themselves by accusing Frontier of not delivering stuff they never promised please get your facts straight and check for yourselves, thanks!

    offline was what i was referring to when i said "campaign". oops! i typed the wrong thing, you got me. but if you've got it in your head that your dick simply must be swung around because of this important video games stuff that you have internalized, then carry on. the incorrect word use should give you fuel for pages of needlessly antagonizing drivel on this subject you are just so worked up about, i simply can't wait, but it has no bearing on this game promising an offline component from the beginning then cancelling it one month before release which is what the fuck i was talking about and what you were tiptoeing around with your "oh well yeah there were like CHANGES" nonsense. they said one thing, did another, i got my money back and forgot about it, and for every game on the internet there will be some angry asshole making excuses for it like it's his fucking kid.

    ha! what a bunch of bullshit. they've said this for every game since 3. (alternating between these announcements and the annual "microsoft is committed to pc gaming" bluster) i don't know why they bother with the pretense.

    i actually loved halo on pc, wish i could have played them all. fighting felt solid, cool story, tight controls (once you killed the always on mouse acceleration)

    I had high hopes for this game but was immensely disappointed with it. They took Martin's "the good guys sometimes lose the battle" trope way too far. You lose every single damn time. No matter what choices you make or how successful your QTE reflexes are. In the end, something will happen and your character and their family will be worse off. In one of the last chapters you even had the option to "stab Ramsey". I laughed, knowing that it didn't matter Ramsey was looking the other way, or that his men were way beyond reach. Something would happen that would prevent the stabbing. And I was right.

    Regret my purchase with this series.

    to be fair, the show totally went off the deep end with that too. it used to be a story that wouldn't cheat to let the good guys win - it's now a story that cheats to make sure they lose.

    I'm one of those book elitists whose known all the events on the show for a few years now. They're handled a bit better in the novels than the show. Mostly in that there's more story around each of the events that show why it plays out in that particular way. But I do recall throwing the book across the room a few times. Usually after some jackass dumb choice a protagonaist makes that u know will get them killed. The events around Meereen in the last novel were particularly bad.

    at least in the books the best swordsman in westeros wasn't stabbed to death in an alley by a bunch of rich aristocrats' kids and the best battlefield commander on the continent didn't lead an army out of formation to its death. oh, and murder his daughter. those changes were cheap, and felt devoid of impact as such.

    Given what a disappointment the game was they won't see sales like that again. And it's PoE, Path of Exile is PoEx.

    Hmm... a quick glance at Metacritic shows a critic average of 89 and a user average of 8.4. On Steam, almost 5000 people gave PoE a positive review, with the overall rating being "Very Positive." Given these facts, I fail to see how PoE is a disappointment.

    On a more relevant note, these numbers seem low. According to SteamSpy, there are about 550k owners on Steam alone. Throw in GOG and I'd expect total sales to be at least 600k.

    ahh, that answers the question i was going to ask: how much of that 500k was backer redemptions? apparently 0 given the total number of owners. half a mil isn't bad for a "dead" genre.

    hopefully enough for a followup. it was a solid BG1-esque entry (feeling out their weirdo game mechanics and setting).. now that they've got a feel for it all, it's time for the masterpiece BG2-esque sequel.
