I will get this on Steam when he finally releases it there(still no projected date, right?), but I feel like a lot of newer games have eaten Dwarf Fortress's lunch in some aspects, namely Rimworld, but also stuff like Prison Architect and some of the other building/society games.

Still, this should bring in a ton of new people, the pure ASCII version is just horrific to look at.

News Comments > Get World War Z, Tormentor x Punisher, and Figment for Free

Played a little bit of WWZ with the bots.. not overly impressed. It's definitely in the vein of L4D/L4D2, but the AI for your teammates seems to be mostly deaf. Always demolishing stuff in front of it, constantly getting jumped on by stuff screaming/sprinting at it from behind.

Some pretty interesting set pieces with a LOT of zombies on screen at once, but apparently there are only 4 maps!?

Not sure if the game is bugged, but it wouldn't let me change my cosmetic appearance, even though it seems like I have the base setup for multiple characters available.

Also, seems pretty grindy, 150points for winning a map(30-40mins), ONE gun takes 150 points to upgrade or unlock, at minimum. Maybe there are more points awarded at higher difficulty/online, etc.

Probably a lot more fun with some people you know, but the team AI was a little tiring. Uninstalled for now.

I've had TormentorXPunisher for awhile now on Steam; in some ways it's the refined, enriched essence of the perfect action game. Rage inducing, difficult, with responsive controls and good gameplay, and you can get your fill in like 20-30minutes.

I just installed World War Z, it has a pretty invasive EULA, with machine/IP specific data collection mentioned, just a fair warning. Not sure if I'll play it with that aggressive of a data collection method.

Of course we're almost living in WWZ now, so, the irony is pretty tasty.

What's the butt of the scuttle? Any good?

I have no doubt it's good, but is it $1000 good?

That's the real question.

News Comments > Prey 2 Hint in DOOM Eternal?

10. Re: Prey 2 Hint in DOOM Eternal? Mar 22, 2020, 19:33 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
jacobvandy yeah, I got to that ending, I guess I interpreted it a little differently though. Generally speaking, I took it to mean humanity is pretty much done for, so whatever happens next is academic, at least as far as human concerns go.

Could they make some new Prey game from there? Sure, but it'd be a vast departure from about 99% of the first game, right?

I mean, I'd still check it out if they made it, but odds are low of that happening.

I'm guessing just a clever reference to how Prey can't get a sequel, regardless of which 'boot it is.

The most recent Prey was such an excellent game.

Yes, I loved the last Prey game, unfortunately it sold poorly and the story was pretty much over at the end of the game. I thought the developer already gave up on the franchise?

News Comments > Valve Plans Artifact Reboot

5. Re: Valve Plans Artifact Reboot Mar 21, 2020, 23:49 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
I loved Magic:the Gathering as a kid, and still love the basic gameplay ideas of it now, but any realist has to see that it's designed to siphon money from the players, especially as time went by.

Artifact was like that, only with more steps for Valve to get cash directly into their bank account. They sold the game, they took a percentage of any player to player card sale, and they also sold booster packs? I forget, it was a lot of selling, enough to make me vehemently oppose the concept of the game the first time around, regardless of how good the gameplay was/is.

I suspect Valve will monetize the shit out of it again this time around, but maybe not; who knows, with the world suffering from a pandemic and idiots in charge, maybe Valve will release some awesome gameplay mechanics with no attempts to fuck players over.

Of course, this comes the weekend that I have at least 6 or 10 hours of work to do.

Somehow, the entire world shuts down, and I still have to work the weekend.

That'll teach you to have a job!

Seriously though, I'll probably get this eventually, although I've read a few Steam complaints about the ammo system(ie. not much actual ammo laying around, you need to chainsaw kill for ammo?) Also apparently some creatures only die 'easily' vs specific weapon attacks, otherwise you waste a ton of ammo, etc.

Maybe a sale buy for me.

Well we already know America and China do. I doubt it would come as a shock that most other countries do it too.

Every country does, almost all law enforcement agencies do, many private companies also collect data/track everything related to your cellphone.

Don't use cellphones, modern cars, modern tvs, credit cards or computers if you don't want to be tracked.

Doom Eternal Is a Dizzying Catastrophe - WIRED.

Bethesda's check to Wired got lost in the mail.

Reading their review, I'm still going to get the game. "Immense," "combat...adds new elements, arguably too many" with some complaints about the story being convoluted. It's all good, man.

I am still deep into Phoenix Point(started my game up again, fuck the middle game of that game, currently) and still playing Division 2, so maybe in a few months, DOOM:E.

Reading Steam reviews, seems like it's buggy and has old style GFWL issues, via XBox live or whatever it's called now. Pass.

Well to be fair, Diablo 3 has not had any real updates, compared to PoE which is constantly being added to.

Is this the PoE 2 one yet, or is that still months away?
