Don't get your panties in a bunch, ladies. Opinions differ. When someone expresses their opinion -- like how they feel about a game -- it's kind of redudant to add the caveat that said opinion is an opinion and subjective. To quote metacritic sites and Steam reviews in an attempt to "prove" my opinion wrong is the stuff of infants.

No the stuff of infants is to say the game is horrible and everyone is conspiring to make it sound like a great game and bots are at work when pretty much every review both from players and professional reviewers say the game is good.

The stuff of an adult would be to say that the game is not for you. Not that it sucks ass and act like that is objective.

Even https://opencritic.com/game/7410/doom-eternal rates it off the charts. Must be due to the dark deep derp state.

Yes it must most certainly be horrible because TorTorden and a few other gripey Bluesnewsers say it is.

If everyone runs over a cliff do you follow?

Reviews ?
Seriously those are at best written by tweens.
But more likely bots.

So all the games that you do like that are reviewed favorably...those reviews are written by tweens and bots as well? And I mean Steam has to be in on it because you can only review with an actually unlocked game and this one is Denuvo protected and so someone bought 98,000 copies of this game just to spam the review area with bots and so nothing is ever actually reviewed honestly on Steam.

Wow...you figured it out. The whole world is a conspiracy to make people like games that you hate. Whatever will you do? Its not like anyone can ever have a differing opinion.

Doom eternal.

Seemed lighter on the former and stuck on the latter.

The quick gore kill in 2016 was a nice bonus addition.

Somehow the design by focus group thought it was a good idea to add another 665 more bullshit stuff on top of it.
And suddenly it's a requirement to make fluffy kills rather than an occasional bonus.

Utterly killed.

And where did the humongous spaceship hub come from?

Nah this was a messy turd wrapped in doom wrapping.
Happy to forget it ever existed.

And yet it sits at a 92%/89% positive rating out of 3002/98,800 votes.

I agree with part of it. I believe that any game that has purchasable loot boxes for cash should be considered gambling and placed under the same age restrictions as gambling.

Fuck EA, Activision, and all the other companies with their "surprise game mechanics"

This I agree with.

From what I hear 4.0 beta seems reasonably solid but there is no harm in waiting for future versions. I'm going to jump back in and experience this DLC though.

It’s hard work trying to equalize the field against a monopoly, but somebody has got to do it.

I'm actually very curious as to why exactly somebody has got to do it? Is what Steam is doing bad for the gaming ecosystem as a whole? Who does it disadvantage? As far as I can see they have done more for gaming in the past decade or so than all the big publishers combined.

All we have now is Epics' say so that they are so terrible and a few game devs getting on the bandwagon because they are getting fronted with money and exclusivity deals. Then those same companies HAVE to launch on Steam anyway because all anyone wants from Epic is their free games. The vast majority of other devs are continuing the same as always and games are coming out apace. So again why exactly does somebody "got to" break the so-called monopoly that is Steam? Which really isn't one in the first place.

Considering I have had an account on this site since 2004 and been reading it even before that, that makes it impossible for me to be a "tween". But even ignoring that there's a huge difference between "tween safe space" and a forum full of deplorables. You seem to be part of the latter.

Given just how slimy most politicians and the Beltway crowd are, I suppose you sent back your "stimulus" money.

"What have the Romans ever done for us?" --- Monty Python

No. I never got it in the first place because I live in a country where the majority of the population is not batshit crazy and does their due diligence. Yeah we have some hardships due to corona but not because we let the fucking virus run wild. As far as I know we have zero cases of community spread and the few cases we did have were dealt with fast and were not a threat to the population for any significant period of time.

7 total deaths due to corona. And none recently.

Less anyone think I'm dunking on the USA, I'm not. But you did elect a total insane, dipshit president and reveled in all his bullshit for four years. Now you have the result sitting in your laps and so many of you are still drinking the koolaid.

Interesting point.
Though the developer studio would be more at fault even if sharing the sin with the tempter.
Maybe Epic's money helped the studio stay open or start producing another game ?

And if that was what it was all about then why would they demand exclusivity? These aren't unfunded or underfunded games. They went through the kickstarter process and finished with stretch goals in place. Epic didn't just pitch in and say "I want to help make your game a reality. Here's x or y million in exchange for a modest cut of the profits."

It was basically a directed attack on Steam and even worse on backers that chose Steam as their platform...and made the game possible in the first place. Before Epic came along there was no corporate entity waving a bag of money at those funded projects and offering to buy them out in exchange for exclusivity. And yes the developers are themselves guilty of taking the money but that doesn't absolve Epic of making it available and setting terms that are anti-backer in a Kickstarter project.


But Epic's tactic is pretty amazing :

Promoting PC gaming to,
- New gamers that got to play games only because they were free.
- Old gamers trying and discovering games they wouldn't have bought.
- Poor gamers unable to buy even cheap games in these troubled times, getting some incredible gifts (Grand Theft Auto V premium edition, Remnant From the Ashes, both Watch Dogs, etc, etc).

I have some 1300 steam games, never bought 1 game anywhere else, unless it was a key I could redeem on Steam.

I respect your stance and liked reading it, opinions give valuable and sometimes eye opening perspective.

But also, I truly love Epic Games Store for 119 games, so far (not counting ones in Steam too).
Like never before on Thursdays, my heart soars that day



All that is fine and I don't have an issue with free games in general. I just don't want any from Epic. Hell sketchy shit is coming out about what their launcher is doing in the background now. I'm fine missing out if it means that I can avoid all that drama.

After the CP2077 debacle, what is the smell you find coming from gog?

I never had GOG or CDPR up on a pedestal. The Witcher games were great, but I don't go out of my way to buy from GOG. Got a few games from them but I don't pretend to try to buy from them exclusively.

In any case... they don't snatch away kickstarted and funded games from the people that funded them. Which is my first and foremost problem with Epic. If they want to fund games from the ground up. More power to them. I'm not going to buy from their store and I can wait patiently until it gets to a store that I do want to buy from.

The CP2077 debacle as you call it affected console owners...which I am not and really could not care less about. They certainly don't care for me when publishers are snubbing PC gamers and/or making crummy ports to PC. So what is your point exactly?

Then I discovered X-Morph Defense and that took it to another level by having my character represented by a badass alien ship. Good times!

So...basically Europeans and Americans to the Native Americans and African Slaves? Yeah I can see how that would be boring to some folks.
