Eh, RG3 is gonna spend at least half of his career on the sideline with various injuries. He takes huge hits left and right. If he stays healthy, he could be a beast though.

He envisions us still playing in 12 years.

Now the cert unlock system is starting to make sense...

What other game company has released a computer game in the past 5 years that is on the level as DA1?

Not sure if serious...

DA1 was mediocre just comparing it to other cRPGs, let alone comparing it to all computer games released in the past 5 years.

I don't think Blue should cover this game. Everything from the gameplay to the game's title makes it painfully obvious that this is a cash grab meant to leech off of DayZ's popularity. It's not a scam, exactly, but it's certainly not an honest endeavor either.

This guy is the last person on Earth who should be given money on Kickstarter. His entire reputation revolves around promising everything and severely under-delivering. And then, as if that wasn't enough to ban him from using Kickstarter, he hasn't made a good game since the 90s.

QTEs, small levels, getting the "Silent Assassin" rating even though you kill people, tacked-on "cinematic" storyline...

Fuck this game.

It's not about whining. It's about pointing out the stupid decisions that were made in designing the restrictions on this F2P option.

Oh, yay. Cinematics with no gameplay. I imagine you have to press "A" when prompted in order to kick off these amazing non-interactive sequences. I simply cannot wait. Let me cancel my subscription to Netflix right now because this is better than film, bros.

He should go work for Mountain Dew. I think that company may be X-TREME enough for him and his earring.

News Comments > No PC Halo 4 Because It's "Designed Specifically for Xbox 360"
54. Re: No PC Halo 4 Because It's Nov 7, 2012, 09:06 Yakubs
 
Halo was a pretty bad game. The only reason it was popular was because it was the only real option available on the Xbox for FPS games which, was we know, appeal to every demographic that the publishers care about. Plus it was incredibly simplified so everyone could understand it.

The GTA formula is pretty stale these days. The series has been already been surpassed in terms of game mechanics by the likes of Just Cause 2, Saboteur, Prototype, Sleeping Dogs, Arkham City, Assassin's Creed, Red Faction Guerrilla and practically any other open-world game released in the past five years.

Rockstar needs to focus on quality and innovation in GTA5, rather than quantity. Having 1000 different things to do doesn't really mean much if those things are all shallow and forgettable.

Truth. Honestly, the formula was already stale with San Andreas when all the changes they made were a step back from Vice City. GTA4 was an exercise in tedium. I don't know why people find it appealing to follow on-screen instructions and then watch cut-scenes.

This bundle is worth it for Pathologic alone. If anyone here hasn't played it, you must buy this bundle and play it immediately.

Why?

Because the game is phenomenal. If anyone wanted to make the case that video games can be art then Pathologic should be one of their exhibits. The atmosphere and the survival/economic elements are some of the best ever. The story is good. Parts of it scary. Lots of tension. It has three different main characters to choose from who all go through the story with vastly different viewpoints and even have different gameplay mechanics.

The only negative is that the translation (from Russian) isn't very good (one of the main characters' story/dialog is much better translated than the other two) and there are occasional bugs. Also, it's probably too intense/stressful for some people although it's not nearly as bad as I thought it would be going in.

Game reviewers will never have a positive image. It's simply impossible until intelligent, educated people become game reviewers, which will never happen until games are widely considered to be artistic equivalents to things like books, music, and movies. Right now, only people with low standards become game reviewers because they're the only ones willing to play the latest AAA shlock 8 hours a day for $30k a year.

Geez, how did I miss adding such an obvious troll to my ignore list?

Fixed.

Yes, please, don't ever let anybody shake your faith. Today's AAA gaming is the best the industry has to offer, obviously.

I don't know what universe the storyline is considered "extraneous" but whatever.

I thought I was being pretty clear that the storyline is extraneous to the gameplay itself. You have a choice between using two extremely distinct gameplay systems and the only consequence of that choice is how the storyline plays out. This is pretty clearly a massive missed opportunity.
