News Comments > System Shock 2 Enhanced Edition Revealed

2. Re: System Shock 2 Enhanced Edition Revealed Aug 12, 2019, 14:32 swaaye
 
Technically, SS2 Enhanced Edition has existed for many years. Every aspect of the game and its engine have seen overhauls by the community.

https://www.systemshock.org/index.php?board=2.0

Some of these efforts have been included in the System Shock 2 for sale on various services already. Just to get it to run on a modern system.

I wonder if this new "Enhanced Edition" will just be a packaging of some visual enhancement projects, or some kind of more major overhaul.

Todd knew full well that it be didn't stack the audience with flunkies, he'd get heckled off the stage after his blatant fucking lies of last year.

I think the last time he didn't hype one of their games beyond any sort of reality was maybe Morrowind? Because Internet hype videos weren't really a thing yet? I don't remember how his magazine interviews went...

He certainly seems to know how to win with the peoples though. I can barely imagine the sales numbers for the next TES.

News Comments > Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Gameplay Footage

24. Re: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Gameplay Footage Jun 8, 2019, 22:08 swaaye
 
I think the newest Star Wars game I've tried to play was Force Unleashed. It reminded me of the SNES games. Sort of a modern 3D edition of that stuff. This looks like the same deal for the most part.

The last one I really enjoyed is probably JK2. I liked the early missions in which Katarn was force-less like in Dark Forces. And I liked how you could do saber fighting in first-person view.

I have a feeling that "most everyone" will flow wherever their games are, or wherever the money is right. The "love" is actually just "habit". All the forum posts in the world won't do anything to affect how it all unfolds.

It's certainly not the first mobile game for this franchise. Maybe it will be decent for what it is.

Well yeah. Fallout 3 was ripped to shreds. Fallout 4 wasn't exactly spectacular. And now Fallout 76 is a mess. And yet the riches keep on flowing in.

Seems like people need to buy the latest release just to see for themselves if it is terrible. I do it. lol. Not for 76 though since I'm not much into that sort of online stuff. 76 is going after a potentially untapped market segment for their franchise though so I expected that to sell almost regardless of quality. Brand power baby. If it was "Future Funky Wasteland Online", it may have bombed more effectively.

I wouldn't say that buying any of the consoles is a display of genius. heh. But I wonder what people are buying the Switch for. The game selection isn't exactly mind blowing but it's filling some void in the lives of these people. The Wii did something like that too.

It's a shame it's not based in the Wing Commander universe. That would be thrilling.

News Comments > Visceral Closing; Star Wars Game Changing Direction

14. Re: Visceral Closing; Star Wars Game Changing Direction Oct 17, 2017, 23:17 swaaye
 
I gotta say I'm pretty much done with EA games and Star Wars too. But maybe Visceral's game was about as weak as Dead Space 3. Who knows.

Dead Space did all sorts of trend following and "evolution" over its run of sequels too and that didn't work out super well. It's just big business trying to grab the masses. Like they aren't going to go nuts with that priceless Star Wars brand nonsense that they paid who knows how much to get. Toyetic, baby.

I think that the real problem with Prey, Dishonored 2 and Deus Ex : MD is that the games failed to generate excitement. It's mostly the way they were marketed. There was a lot of it, but it was rather bland and boring. I also found that the games themselves were a bit generic or too similar to the previous entries who already saturated us. Dishonored 2 and Deus Ex were definitely marketed as more of the same and I didn't feel that Prey really had a unique identity. I know Prey is probably a good game, and it's a type of game I usually love, but I have zero excitement for it.

Solid point there. We aren't really starved for these sorts of games lately. Could be a saturation point of sorts.

e that this game formula doesn't sell well to the masses.

Dishonored 2 is objectively a worse game than Dishonored 1 though (I own and played both), same for Deus EX Mankind Divided, which was objectively a worse game than Deus EX Human Revolution (I own and played both)

It's imo fair that both games sold worse than their predecessors. If they hadn't that would have sent a far worse message.
I liked Dishonored 2 a lot, but yeah DXMD wasn't super.

The other problem though is that you better believe that DXMD and Dishonored 2 cost a lot more to make than their predecessors. The not so wonderful reality of this industry. Prey though didn't strike me as quite as ambitious a project. It doesn't have the same insane level of detail as those games.

News Comments > Prey Trial Version Released

17. Re: Prey Trial Version Released Aug 17, 2017, 00:03 swaaye
 
They named it Prey in hopes of selling more copies. There was an interview with Raphael Colantonio awhile back about the game and it covered that a bit. Prey is a name that the masses might recognize and it might help sales. That sort of thing. Unfortunately, it still didn't sell very well. Neither did Dishonored 2. Or Deus Ex MD. It's not good for anyone that this game formula doesn't sell well to the masses. I'm glad I don't have to try to figure out what the great hive mind of the masses might be attracted by....

I'm sure the only reason this demo exists is because of sales not being so hot. Dishonored 2 got one too.

I'm hoping this plays somewhat like the 2005 CoC game. It's hard to tell with these CG nonsense videos the game industry is self-compelled to pay for.

Is GTA 5 like the best selling game in history then? Definitely some sort of strange cultural me too thing going on there.

News Comments > Alien Isolation Sequel Rumored

8. Re: Alien Isolation Sequel Rumored Apr 25, 2017, 11:42 swaaye
 
I played through the game about 4 times. Once on Nightmare. I loved it. You need to have a certain confidence and focus to make progress on Nightmare. Heh.

There are some things I didn't like about the game design. Like how the station inhabitants were mostly completely homicidal. Seemed a bit simplistic. Also, the doors / ducts that always auto-opened as I walked past (making noise). I also feel the game shouldn't have loading zones in this age. And there is also the inability to have multiple playthroughs in progress.

And on PC they didn't fix the stuttering pre-rendered video cutscenes. How hard can it be to make some videos play smoothly...

I played through Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth a few months ago. Looking forward to a new take on Lovecraft.
