SciFi setting is perfect for DLC'o'rama piecemeal deliveries, of course. They can just keep adding planet after planet until the udders are dry.

Good to know we can always count on you Mr. Ray of Sunshine! Sunny

That was a funny KS vid. These guys have style.

Still, what I'd really like to see is a modern Hexen/Heretic.

News Comments > Another Developer Banned for Fake Steam Reviews
17. Re: Another Developer Banned for Fake Steam Reviews May 11, 2018, 16:01 Slashman
 
Cutter, seriously man. I played Titan Quest from start to end and the expansion. That was no fault of the developer.

And including characters with certain viewpoints in a game has NOTHING to do with the gameplay, graphics, interface etc of the game. Only, at best, the story of the game. How is giving a game a negative review in any way or form fair based on that single point alone? Or ANY single point alone actually, unless its a game breaking bug/mechanic?

Someone made a Chinese translation mod for Endless Legend and then violated the forum rules on Steam by pointing to pirated content. He was then banned and his mod removed. Chinese users then began review bombing the game, based on nothing more than the bad behavior of someone who had nothing to do with the game or its development. Is that fair to you? If your answer is yes, then maybe you need to do some soul searching.

That is extremely sad, stopped a little ways in.

First of all, the loss of life is never a happy thing, but this was a willful case of idiocy being rewarded in a predictable, if tragic, way.

Also, anyone thinking that those folks should rush a bear may not have much knowledge of what one of those things is capable of. Bears have extremely tough hides and thick muscle that regular guns have a hard time piercing. Sticks and stones would really not do the trick. Also, that was an injured animal who believed it was fighting for its life. That makes it all the more dangerous.

The bottom line here is that an idiot reaped what he sowed. Sometimes that happens.

From what I understand also, they don't make Witchers anymore. They are something of a dying breed. That's why the Witcher schools have fallen into ruin.

So to make the story about a new Witcher, you'd have to find a reason why they are still being created when the rest of the world has stopped the practice. Witcher creation is basically mass murder. Most will not live.

I wish this game would get a reboot like The Secret World did. I read a writeup from Cryptic about why the game will never have a mission editor like some of their other games because the engine they used is an older one, but it's been out for so many years now it would be cool if they updated it and added the mission editor capability.

Because a mission editor destroyed City of Heroes/Villains. People made farm missions and that was the end of the game, pure and simple. Why play the game when you can max out a character in less then 10 hours sitting in a mission?

This game has been left to rot after the popularity of Star Trek Online and Neverwinter Nights Online.

CoX was better ONLY in the having more larger zones. But was so badly balanced that a fire/fire controller could utterly destroy an entire mission in 10 mins without much work. And PVP was a nightmare.

The editor was a badly planned move by the devs. They were warned about the farming potential by beta testers and went ahead anyway. The game needed more baseline content at the time, not player created content, which was greatly limited anyway because the editor was not a precision tool...

As for your complaint about fire/kin controllers. No one really cared and I never saw an overabundance of them anyway. Thematically, not everyone wanted to play them.

Yeah, CoH was tons better. Still amazes me how few (good) superhero games there are/have ever been for video games. I'd love to see a new CoH.

I'd be all-in for that!

Steam is by no means a perfect platform or application, but damn! The amount of vitriol and hate that spews out anytime it specifically gets a mention on Blues regarding any type of changes its making is so freaking over the top.

Some folks really need to find something to do to reduce their bitterness levels. They're just toxic.

So are all of you accidentally buying shitty games that you don't want on Steam? Because it really isn't hard to find out if a product is crap unless you are a compulsive first day buyer of everything new.

I just laugh when I see publishers do this.

The hypocrisy...

ESRB Rated M

"Rating Summary: This is a first-person shooter in which players control members of an elite counter-terrorism unit through various missions. Game modes allow players to eliminate terrorist cells, defuse bombs, and extract hostages. Characters use firearms (e.g., pistols, machine guns, shotguns), explosives, and traps (e.g., electrified barbed wire, robots with tasers) to kill human enemies. Gunfights can be frenetic and are highlighted by cries of pain, explosions, realistic gunfire, and blood-splatter effects. Cutscenes also depict instances of violence: an explosion that kills two characters; a man shot in slow-motion. During the course of the game, some stages depict bags of cocaine on tables/counters. The word f**k appears in the dialogue."

So you're saying that should prep the user for continual racist and homophobic abuse?
