Erica, why do all androids look like schoolgirls?
Because if they looked like the women in ME:A no one would take a second glance.

We'll bang, okay?

So weird.. already talking about the next gen of consoles?

I feel like it's an even worse time to be a console gamer at this point, with all the money you'd have to shell out.

I was going to try it til I saw it's mp only. Too bad.

It's kind of only something you can appreciate with other people... Getting a squad leader, him coordinating with other squads and seeing people work together is pretty cool.

I don't know if there will be bots/PVE though.

I guess now I understand the "outrage"... but, still, shouldn't be in the game anyway. Also people were complaining that FemRyder has more romance options than MaleRyder (especially "gay" options).

Got access to the closed beta, I wont even install it because its multiplayer only, cant play vs AI and there is no Last Stand. Especialy the last stand part.

Ah poop. Guess I won't even go for the open beta...


It doesn't even look that great, compared to the old games, but cautiously optimistic. Plus SEGA shat out DLC and monetized the fuck out of COH 2, which is a red flag for this one.

Yeah... I mean, cynicism, fine, lots of grumpy old men here. Some of these comments are just completely unnecessary. CJ became the first and only person on my ignore list recently.

Haven't tried NieR, but it does sound cool. Just don't like Square Enix... Everything they put out feels weird (typical overseas control schemes that feel awkward), or port-like.

Gonna keep an eye on this one though.

Pretty awesome response... Mostly looking forward to MP balance changes, as the SP stuff didn't bother me (except for the traveling planet to planet).

-> Fixing Ryder’s movements when running in a zig zag pattern

Damnit. I loved doing this.

News Comments > Steam Discovery Changes Will "Fight Fake Games"
17. Re: Steam Discovery Changes Will Apr 4, 2017, 13:44 Rhett
 
Definitely a lot of garbage on steam.. a lot of stuff I'd rather never, ever see on there (movies, novels, erotic novels/shitty ero games), but I guess those are considered "legit" compared to this.

If only Origin and Uplay didn't suck complete ass. Even if they didn't, Steam does everything better... blargh.

Definitely good changes, but seasons are really getting tedious.. I personally can't take another one... I hate starting out with no paragon again.

The biggest fault against DayZ is that it was built on a shitty shit engine and had awful multiplayer infrastructure. I wouldn't care if it was in EA all this time if it actually played well but you fire it up and there's as much buggy, poorly-optimized bullshit now as there was years ago.

He probably cashed out because he knew it could never be fixed and there was no point in hanging around with that noose around his neck.

To be fair, DayZ as a game has improved performance insanely on that engine, and the renderer they made for that will be used in the next ARMA game, which will be fantastic most likely. I think that and the multiple reiterations of zombie coding probably ate up most of their time. Now they're redoing the entirety of the forests on Chernarus next patch.

This Stationeers game sounds like that failed Ion game was reimagined or repackaged, of his.

Dean, though, needs to sit down and finish something before he announces anything else.

Would certainly be awesome on PC. I only played it on 360, and it was really fun. Never played any expansions though, but it was awesome. Good gunplay.

It is good, not too much wrong with it for an EA title. A little bit of bullshit here and there (mostly with "I should have killed that guy! I hit him in the head!" and the circle/gas encroaching so fast you can't have enjoyable firefights).

Game still isn't available here on Steam (central Europe). I even searched for it. Nothing. It's not even mentioned.

Not that I cared much because there is nothing I despise more in a game than paid micro-transactions, and MEA has them all...

Pretty sure it's not coming to Steam, like most EA games now.

And the "microtransactions" are just to speed up MP progression. I haven't spent a dime on these boxes on either this or ME3 and I've really enjoyed my time with it. When you "max out" an item or character by getting its card (and giving it upgraded stats/extra points/customization), it removes it from the loot pool, so you can grind your way forward... if you enjoy looking forward to unlocking the next cool thing.

Custom games can be pretty awesome too. Been a while since we had anything even close to UT mutators as a server option.

It's just.. where's an expansion? D4? Necromancer comes out later this year, probably for like $20 I'm guessing, but that seems maybe barely enough to keep it afloat in terms of interest. Hopefully that's the plan, as they delay the announcement of D4? *shrug*

Played a few hours of the SP... writing seems okay (I'm not a story guy - playing it for the exploration/combat/etc), that one 50-cent-whore looking woman with all the makeup is the only cringey person I've seen yet, rest of the characters and dialogue are pretty cool. Drack and Vetra are awesome.

Loving the exploration and open world elements (Eos). Once I got there, the game started to shine gameplay-wise. Regardless of the story (I know, I know.. Mass Effect etc etc), it's beautiful, snappy, and fun to play. I can't wait to sit down without a 10 hour trial lingering over me and soak it in.

I mean some of the facial animations are odd (they can't be perfect, given the amount of dialogue), but these faces look amazing to me. I'm on all High settings, and it looks fantastic. Dunno what you guys are talking about...

Are you saying that the videos are lies?

Honestly haven't put much time into the SP, but I did the intro/pathfinder bit, and all the conversations and close-ups looked fine to me anyway. This video does point out some obvious flaws. I'm just saying that all of the animation can't be perfect. I believe it has as much dialogue as the last 3 games combined? (IIRC)

I'm getting it, anyway... the faces aren't gonna break the game for me.
