News Comments > Dying Light 2 Announced
16. Re: Dying Light 2 Announced Jun 11, 2018, 16:19 Wallshadows
 
My biggest let down in regards to DL is that the modding community doesn't feel that great. At all. I was really hoping that once given the tools it would really open up further potential but most of what's released is just awful.

That and the QTE they snuck it at the end. Totally needless.

Looking forward to this though. Chris Avellone is working on the story so that could definitely iron one of the short comings of the first.

I hate EA as much as the next guy but to think this wasn't inevitable or to bag on it as if the game was exclusively Battle Royale is a little reaching.

It's one of several modes. Conquest will always be my jam.

With products like Vega which are still priced high, offer flaky performance and have varying degrees of availability there's really no reason to push for the 1180. It'll hurt those who are looking for 4k60FPS but that's a a drop in the bucket.

RTG really needs to hit that 7nm fab hard to get something out of the door and, AFAIK, Navi won't happen until next year and it'll still use their GCN architecture.

It should be them smashing the last computer which has the Creative and, by extension, Gamebryo source code with sledgehammers.

Kind of silly as none of these games are cpu bound unless of course you have a 10 year old computer. You have to wonder about the pea brains that decided they needed a 6600.

I wouldn't look to much in to box specs. Not only are they often overblown but they rarely bother to mention what settings they're targeted towards.

Are the minimum specs for 720p60FPS on high? 1080p30FPS on medium? What about recommend?

These are the same minimums for BF1 right down to the required space.

Weird. I imagine the recommended specs won't be much different then?

Looking back at this video is a somewhat unsettling experience. Four years and he went from being optimistic to being one more victim of stupid fucking cancer.

If anything I hope his death will be the push some folks need in order to be vigilant about their health rather than dismissing abnormalities until it's too late.

Even for BF... even for CoD... that was a really messy, chaotic trailer.

MFW this game retails for $120 though since it apparently won't come with loot boxes or DLC. There's no way EA will let those slide without some kind of huge catch.

So far all signs are pointing to being a much better, more complete product. Anything less would be heresy.

I'm already tired of going back to WW2 and we're not even that far in to it yet.

Maybe they'll do the History Channel's The Great Martian War. Anything.

News Comments > Tencent and Grinding Gear
3. Re: Tencent and Grinding Gears May 21, 2018, 10:48 Wallshadows
 
I get the impression that there were financial woes over at GGG since they were really, really, really cranking out MTX armors these last few months. I mean, they only have one person working on the game engine so I can see how this can help bring staff and create improvements where it's sorely needed which was likely a big reason Chris made this decision.

In any case, I feel two ways about this.

The first being I'm not that worried Tencent will take control of PoE since they also have large stakes in other companies and haven't run them in to the ground. They seem to be more interested about what they can do in China.

The second being that I don't see GGG as the David vs Goliath, indie vs big studio success story any more now that they're essentially a part of a big studio. It also makes supporter packs and MTXs feel less meaningful now since we're no longer directly supporting a small indie studio.

I'm cautiously optimistic since it would be great to see what GGG can do with these changes but there is a degree of concern to see how this shakes out over time. They already have glorified loot boxes so it's not like we can shit on Tencent for that.

I feel shitty but I'd like to think that his work in The Cosby Show and Fat Albert shouldn't be dismissed because he turned in to what he is today. It's no longer coming from Cliff Huxtable incarnate and is hypocritical, sure, but there's still meaning to what he said and expressed which should be taken to heart.

Not the drinky drinky rapey rapey parts but the fatherly figure parts.

Be gentle.

Bear with me when I say it'd be interesting if they crossed battle royale with a vastly more enjoyable version of Biohazard Umbrella Corps where you're against each other but within the open world of StarCraft where environment and NPCs actually matter.

It'd be better if it were a storied FPS set in SC but their focus is on dump trucks full of money since they're not willing to add a battle royale mode to Overwatch.

It's going to get even more spicy with 7nm Ryzen 2 next year. Hell, it'll be interesting to see if they're holding back on a consumer 2800X flagship or if that'll just be rolled in to the new 12nm Threadripper.
