This is just making me want the next season of the anime even more. This game looks intolerable though, after about 10 minutes of play.

No... Because it's WAY shoulder-cam (practically side cam) like Alan Wake. I can't stand that.

What the... Alan Wake hate!?

I loved Alan Wake, for the $7.49 or whatever I bought it for. I suspect I'll probably be quite pleased with Vampyr at around the same price.

Looking forward to every game in this evening preview list, actually.

Would you say it was a perfect 5 out of 7?

Haha! Is that a real exchange? That's damned near perfect. I don't even know if I'd mind if it was faked.

*EDIT* More on topic: I don't know what you guys are so mad about, it's not like this one could be worse, or more delayed.

Played around a bit with the SWAT perk today... feels pretty good, although I think they really need to work a riot shield/1handed gun/melee weapon into the perk, in some way or another. Right now it feels basically like the Commando with slightly different guns.

Still, SWAT has enjoyable gun play, the basic requirement. It seems almost too easy to pop heads with the SMGs though, very controllable while full auto.

I swear the Fleshpound has a new roar now; it sounds appropriately intimidating.

News Comments > Battlefield 1 DLC & Season Pass Details
22. Re: Battlefield 1 DLC & Season Pass Details Aug 25, 2016, 13:33 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
Well, the same old DLC shit, unfortunately every video of BF1 I see looks amazing, so I'm going to have to give in and buy it. I skipped BF:Star Wars and Hardline at least.

I would like it if EA would just be honest, and charge 100 bucks(or 110 I guess) for the full game, day one. Missing maps and weapons in a FPS is just intolerable, and if they have separate classes behind the DLC wall also? Ugh. Just call the $60 version of the game the Demo version.

I'm probably not going to bother messing with the Early Access, but I'm definitely looking forward to the retail release. Already got my Kickstarter copy, loved the first one.

I need to go back and play the Director's Cut or Remastered Version or whatever it's called, actually.

*EDIT* Enhanced Edition.

Mafia II, Why has the price gone UP on Steam?? I bought that years ago, I want to say directly through Steam, for like 5-6 bucks. Odd. Then again, Deadpool also went back up in price, and probably more than a few other games.


Re: US Army fudged its accounts by trillions of dollars...

That should come as no surprise to anyone, trillions of dollars being thrown at the Defense Department with zero oversight.

News Comments > Star Citizen Gamescom Presentation
21. Re: Star Citizen Gamescom Presentation Aug 20, 2016, 16:17 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
Looks pretty good so far, although some questions are still there:

How pay to win has the game become, with people buying $5000(USD) ships, being in the same universe as people who are still in the intro clunker ship? They got 3000 credits(each? to split?) for that one mission, so how many credits for a ship that can take on a backer-real money ship? 10 million? 100 million? How much grind is planned for the Persistent Universe?

When the one player looted the yellow bike-ship, did BOTH players 'earn' it on their account? Did they earn it permanently at all?

Player hp vs small arms seems insanely high, boringly high. Needs an adjustment from a FPS fun perspective. Or maybe that's already planned, who knows.

Real world space style elevators and doors are cool for 5 minutes, how boring will that shit get though after a few weeks or months of gameplay? Aka fast travel to ship from the bottom of a base, etc.

Some aspects of the game look ripe for trolling, they mentioned they already changed how docking works, hopefully the rest of the game is designed to prevent people tying up the game for others? Killing or locking up important NPCs, jamming elevators or doors with boxes, or whatever.(not counting PKing, etc.)


All those things can be answered eventually of course, just trying to picture the minor details that could turn into real headaches on release.

Still, I'm actually interested now. I could see myself buying this game before it hits the $9.99 bargain bin level.

Feels like there's not been as much talk about this one. And I have to admit that while I'm sure I'll check this out, Pillars 2 is what I'd really like to see...


I think they needed a break from PoEt and had to do a different world for a bit, but yeah there definitely hasn't been as much hype for Tyranny.

Looks pretty good, hopefully it's Unity 5 or whatever so modding isn't quite as much of a hassle as in PoEt.

Speaking of which, they really need to release that next patch for Pillars, still some minor but very annoying issues in the game.

Also, as I watching this video, I was thinking: "hehe, some of these guys got OLD...oh wait, they aren't that much older than I am... "

Sheesh, $440 for cosmetics? I know they are optional, but the human race being what it is, I'm sure some people are buying those packages.

Looks like PoE is doing pretty well, financially.

This looks so awesome, and coming out in November? Perfect!

Hopefully all this hype doesn't lead to crushing disappointment, WH40k games have tricked me before. I'm looking at you, Battlefleet: Gothic Armada.

This game is gorgeous, easily the coolest looking character models I've seen in awhile. However, the gameplay looks like it simply isn't my cup of tea, oh well. Maybe I'll try the beta when I finish XCOM2.

*EDIT* Typo.

Guys did you watch the 20 minute gameplay video embedded in the article? It is much more DOW1 than DOW2 and actually seems to combine the best aspects of both games really well. The only issue I could maybe be nitpicky about is that the basic units more or less stand around when they are in combat, instead of being more active, dodging, ducking into cover and whatnot like we are used to in Relic games. Still, I bought both DOW1 and DOW2 and loved both (even though DOW2's multiplayer still has me crying crocodile tears) and this looks like something right up my alley....can't wait.

I did watch this video, and the last kinda lengthy one they posted. Both are just Alpha or even pre-alpha content though, not sure how the final game will end up. Although yes, you are right, there definitely seems to be more of a DoW1 focus than a DoW2 style of gameplay.

I am cautiously optimistic for this game.

Meh, Warhammer has always been pretty damned colorful, especially the actual tabletop games. 40k, the setting is so grim that's it's practically comical, in my opinion. Billions of lives hang in the balance on every battle, every planet has a super weapon to be contested for with Xeno hordes, ancient chaos beings from beyond the rift encroach upon humanity like low budget Cthulhus, etc.

Not that I don't love the setting, but come on, it's practically a cliche at this point. I better paint my army Neon pink and Yellow so I can tell them apart from everybody elses' blue Ultramarine armies!(j/k I couldn't afford the miniatures as a kid)


I don't mind this graphical style; I'm far more worried about them messing up the gameplay. More DoW1 than DoW2 please!

I liked V:tM-Bloodlines, even the buggy mess I played in the vanilla release, but my favorite V:tM game is still Redemption. Squad based massacres of armored knights and shotgun toting vampires? Outstanding.

After Redemption, Bloodlines always felt a little lonely to me. I need to go back and play it with an up to date version of that massive unofficial patch though.

Yet another ridiculously good video from DICE. I'm sure there will be the usual score of bugs and issues upon release, but I'm still stoked for this game.

Murder by horse? Check.

Armored and cannon-equipped train? Check.

WW1 Bombers dropping bombs onto people messing around trying to sword fight on horseback? Check.
