I assume they are getting help from Blizzard on PC port. I am optimistic that they will treat the PC platform with respect; Battle.net is a solid platform.

News Comments > Arkane: Steam Refunds = PC Prey Demo
25. Re: Arkane: Steam Refunds = PC Prey Demo May 3, 2017, 14:08 Bopper
 
I'm sure there was some legit reason for this. As a developer there are often times when you can't meet consumer demands due to reason X and Y, especially when a publisher is also in the mix.

That being said, it would be interesting to know the reason why there wasn't a PC demo.

Yep I would have preferred a more sandbox style MMO myself but as far as theme-park MMO's go, ESO is decent.

ESO is pretty solid nowadays. Decent story, nice world, lots of PVE and PVP content. It is free to play but it is very annoying not playing without the premium subscription as your inventory is limited, so I suggest trying it out at least.

I remember seeing the physics, water effects, amount of items you can pick up, etc. and being amazed.

I think Skyrim is still my favorite with all of the added DLC and some choice mods.

I wonder how they will monetize without season pass. They will either go cosmetic (I hope) or will lock heroes behind paywalls that you need to grind to unlock, pay individually or buy hero packs.

I bought Battlefront on good faith, t'was a mistake.

I loved Battlefront 1 and 2 and was expecting a Battlefield game set in the SW universe. It turned out to be very arcadey, shallow, repetitive with limited content and replayability. Derp.

I hope they go back to making a slightly more linear and personal story. Less, better written characters with a focus on player choice. Semi turn-based tactical combat with deep character customisation. No fetch quests or crafting.

From what I saw in that statement, this will be nothing like that. Derp.

Hasn't a Sims title been in the top 3 on PC charts for the past 12 years? I assume it is because "casual" gamers buy the physical version of it while everyone else buys "proper" games on Steam.

How did we know he was going to kick the dog? It just looked like he ran towards it.

Idk how some people can harm animals, I would feel physically ill if I was forced to kick a dog, wild or not.

So can someone give an objective account of what happened with DayZ? Dean Hall made the mod when working with Arma guys, then spun it off into an early access project that never got finished? Now he has a new studio? Or same studio but working on a new game? Couldn't find this with wikipedia search and am lazy.

News Comments > WoW Scaling Changes
3. Re: WoW Scaling Changes Mar 29, 2017, 13:28 Bopper
 
Sounds similar to the scaling in some single player games, i.e. Fallout/Elder Scrolls series but I always liked it when having better gear allowed you to wreck most enemies, it really gave a nice sense of progression in your character's power.

He defiantly should not of used that their.

More on point, there were a lot of things I liked about the game when it came out and loved the setting; it might be worth another spin.

I hope they go for something totally different now that their sales are dipping.

Non-linear campaign, maybe some tactical squad combat with orders, choices that matter, etc.

I still enjoy the CoD games as mindless 6 hour campaigns but I haven't payed actual money for a CoD game since Modern Warfare 2.

News Comments > Mass Effect: Andromeda Launches
26. Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda Launches Mar 21, 2017, 13:55 Bopper
 
I was VERY letdown by the combat in the beginning. I am playing on hardcore so if I attempted to do anything other than hunker behind cover I would die very quickly. This led me to a strategy where I hide behind the same cover and pick off enemies with headshots.

I remember the ambush you are talking about. I ended up waiting inside one of the buildings, letting the enemies come to me one after another and headshotting them from behind a desk. It felt really artificial and I felt like I was cheesing the whole system. It would have been nice to be forced to mix it up, i.e. if they threw grenades or rushed my position, forcing me to regroup but it didn't happen.

The fiend was the saddest part, he happily parked his ass on the ground while I simply took pot shots at his head from the roof. I would move forward, headshot him, move back. He would shoot back with the acid projectile but he would always hit the roof, rendering the attack/threat completely inconsequential. While I did this I ordered my NPC buddy to attack him which resulted in her standing 6 feet away from it and do...nothing. She would just stare at it and the fiend was perfectly content trying to shoot me (or rather, attempt to shoot me) while there was a perfectly good target in front of him.

I hope this was a fluke or just bad luck with the AI/encounter. I might have to try upping it to the highest difficulty; your encounter sounded a lot more epic.

Still, it was fun

News Comments > Mass Effect: Andromeda Launches
11. Re: Mass Effect: Andromeda Launches Mar 21, 2017, 11:39 Bopper
 
Played about 15 hours so far, 10 on trial, 5 via VPN to unlock early.

The game isn't as good as the original series but still competent. It is very much like DA:I but so far the quests are a bit more compelling as are the environments, then again I was a little let down with DA:I so that is not saying much.

The animations are not as bad as people say, there are only a couple of characters (so far) that are distracting.

The game is pretty buggy but all issues encountered so far are minor/cosmetic but they are quite plentiful. Some examples:

- Ambient dialogue in places where there are no people.
- Random NPC in a drunken state standing in a random place at an outpost (totally out of context)
- Two NPC's stuck in a half second animation of shaking hands in a loop, one of which I can stand inside of.
- NPC dialogue referring to a character I have not met yet.
- Dodgy companion AI at times.
- One quest allowed me to complete a step twice.

One major bug:

- Door did not open in main path quest, forced me to reload.

Annoyances:

- UI is clunky/convoluted. Made for consoles (yep playing on PC9. This is something that should be patched as it is quite easy to do.
- Can't equip items right away (not even consumables that you pick up and possibly need) which is quite dumb.
- Limited companion customisation, no equipment for them.

Good stuff:

- Some decent characters/writing (although sometimes the writing is a bit cringe/wtf).
- Nice production design of environments, props, etc. (when they are not buggy).
- Some interesting side quests and progression systems.
- Driving the buggy is quite fun (I actually liked the Mako from ME1 :P)
- Fun combat, it is quite streamlined and missing the RPG-ness of the first ME but cranking up the difficulty helps.
- Exploration can be fun, only seen the first real planet though.
- The scanner is a mixed bag. Sometimes scanning is fun/feels relevant, sometimes it feels like busywork.
- Runs well but I have a high-end pc.

In summary: rough, not as good as ME trilogy, some bright moments to be had, if you are at all unsure wait for patches and a sale. The first 5 hours was quite discouraging but the game gets better.

News Comments > Mafia III Released
11. Re: Mafia III Released Oct 8, 2016, 04:09 Bopper
 
I was disappointed at first that the focus wasn't on the Italians but they are still featured prominently. I actually love the setting and the exposure to all the different cultures as well as the southern vibe.

The game runs well for me despite the 30 FPS lock. I have had one crash and a few spots when the game locked up for 10 seconds or so but other than that it is fine.

News Comments > Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Season Pass Details
25. Re: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Season Pass Details Aug 23, 2016, 07:00 Bopper
 
I remember when you could get free stuff in games through mods and cheat codes instead of paid DLC

I don't even want any of the crap that came with the pre-order, it just wrecks the balance of the game. I will see if I can somehow get rid of my extra cash so I can start fresh.

I hope the DLC will be good.
