Sheesh, good luck to the team making BFME:Reforged, but that's going to be a mountain of legal issues, one would think. It looks pretty sweet though, I loved those games back in the day, and I hope they succeed.

You.... you guys know this is about Dying Light 2, right? That it's being compared to GoT an TW3 by introducing choices which have an impact on a world which has regressed to a "dark age" and a narrative design being provided by Chris Avellone who's worked in some of the most influential, story-driven RPGs ever, yeah?


Yeah, people are somewhat sleeping on this game... on paper at least, it promises to be MUCH more than its predecessor. I'm hoping it turns out awesome...just keep the melee and movement from the first game, make the coop fully functional with the campaign(I think I remember some issues from the first one?) and GIVE US THE OPTION TO TURN OFF WEAPON DEGRADATION.

Also a real story would be nice.

The ammo restriction is the best part of this game. There's no more spam, everything feels tactical, and much more realistic.

The support can throw down ammo boxes, there's 9 bullets from dead bodies everywhere, and you're less than 100m from a full ammo/health resupply station at any time.

There's just no more spam, you have to use your head.

Well, that's the plus side, limiting spam. I'm sure DICE considered this system quite a bit, and it's still alpha, so I'm not overly worried, just I know how it gets sometimes in BF games, where sometimes teammates utterly refuse to drop ammo, or play objectives, or revive, for that matter.

Well, I'm definitely disappointed that you can only build in certain predefined spots on the maps, as somebody pointed out several BFV threads ago, but it still looks like there are a LOT of build points on some maps, so that's better than nothing. Engine limitations no doubt, oh well.

Otherwise, gunplay seems largely similar to BF1, which isn't a bad thing, although the ammo system seems to be a mistake. Basically spawn with one clip? Loot like 6-9 bullets from an enemy kill? Does the support even have an ammo box to drop, or do you have to choose between ammo or building supplies? Ugh.

Some of these design choices seem anti-fun, regardless of attempted balance reasons. I don't do Alpha testing without getting paid, but of course we all pay to do Beta testing these days, with modern releases.

Still looking forward to the game, I'll try to finish up some RPGs and try to truly get sick of BF1 to clear up some SSD space before October. It's an October release, right?

*EDIT* Nvm, that support has building supplies AND ammo packs, and it looks like landmines. Minor Crisis averted.

Nice, although they REALLY need to redo the free DLCs, and add them all into one pack or something, it makes the update process hell on any system that has the windows permissions for admin turned off, ie. you have to acknowledge EACH update(of which there are like 12 now) each time. Windows 8.1 and earlier basically, does not happen on my windows 10 laptop.

Bleh, corporatized movies. You don't make a billion dollars on Solo and cancel anything that might end up being great, aka a Fett movie, post Sarlac pit? Jedi stories away from the Skywalkers?

Oh well, they will probably ruin the remaining movies anyway.

Solo was easily the best of the new Star Wars films (7, 8, Rogue One) too, if people might have enjoyed it more, if they could get over the fact that Harrison Ford is an old man and sick of the Han role anyway.

Hrm, looking good already, although apparently 3 years into development, so not that surprising.

I'm interested, and these guys seem to be able to actually release Kickstarted projects in my lifetime... I might contribute.

Sweet, this game seemed pretty interesting, but I hadn't even really tried it before they shut it down, for whatever crazy reason.

I wonder if they are trying to monetize it at all, with additional cards eventually, or something?

I'll try it out this weekend, hopefully.

Welcome to the joys of online treadmill gaming, Creston!


The only way to win games like Elder Scrolls Online is to not play at all.

Luckily we're sort of living in a golden age of single player gaming right now, in spite of the rest of the world/humanity being complete shit.

Holy shit, they are up to patch 10.0 !?!?

Time to reinstall Bloodlines, finally. I am astounded by the dedication of the community patch writer(s?) for what... almost 15 years? More?

Either this is out of control OCD, or they truly love the game.

I've tried many times to get into this game but just can't do it. It frustrates me and stresses me out for some reason which is the exact opposite effect I am looking for when I sit down to play a game.

Well, it's definitely not for everyone. It's effectively a headshot trainer, you move relatively little(most classes) and always aim for the head or other weak spot, and missing becomes exponentially worse in wasted ammo, time and money. On the other hand, it's vs AI opponents, so it's not as aggravating as playing well and losing because your team is vegetating in Battlefield instead of capping flags.

I love it, but my coop group is pretty much sick of it, unfortunately, and is demanding we find a new game.

Also my perks are all maxxed out, and I don't know if I want to prestige them all back to zero and start over again, just for a cosmetic knife skin.

Either way how do you replicate the pressure of five smelly peers looking over your shoulder ready to crown you king or cut you down with sneers, *click* another twenty cent piece pushes along the glass.
Shit.

Holy shit, does that bring back memories!

Although in the US it was 25 cent pieces, quarters.

Also from that same time period, jackasses losing in Street fighter or other fighting games would bump into you constantly with their shoulder, etc.

Hrm, well good, the game can always *use* new players, but terrible timing. Most of the servers haven't been updated yet, and they are running the Summer models, aka the clowns and other even weirder shit in place of the normal, awesome, models.

Most of the regular players, myself included, hate the Summer models with a passion.

*EDIT* Typo.

Skirmish mode still lacking for SS4? I've been waiting to buy this on a decent sale(the main game) because people are still complaining the skirmish mode is weak overall(lack of options mainly).

Stranger Things is an overrated, precisely manufactured, nostalgia targeting show. It's not the worst thing on Netflix by any stretch of the imagination, but it's not that great, just because of some 80s references.

So, this is like the worst aspect of Dark Souls, brought into Destiny 2?

Invasion by PvPers, messing up the nice PvE experience. It actually sounds a little interesting, although I've pretty much already given up on Destiny 2.

I thought the TV show was alright, never played the game though.

The game was a lot like the show. Acceptable to pretty good, nothing great, nothing terrible. I tried out the last incarnation for awhile, didn't end up putting a lot of time into it, and uninstalled.

There were plenty of better games out there, and I've played worse, but nothing really grabbed me in Defiance to make me keep playing.
