News Comments > Mass Effect Series on Hold?

If the series is really on hold (which seems likely), it's because it's not selling well, not because of the haters.

The game kinda quickly hits a point to where you run out of planets to colonise and points to build more frontier stations or whatever they're called. Then you kinda just sit back and do tech for a veeeeeeeeeeeeery long time, until you can do another small expansion or someone with 10X your fleet strength shows up and says they're going to kill you for no reason.

That's great info, do you think it would be fully fleshed out enough to not hit that stale point with another expansion? Or is this as good as it's going to get? I've been holding off on this purchase knowing what CK2 turned into.

I'm one of the guys who bought all the expansions. Even the ones that add content into the "end game" even though I've never gotten close to that point.

I don't want to give it a bad review b/c I feel there's a strong possibility I'm either playing it wrong, or just plain suck at it.

In the game I'm playing now I've colonised 4 worlds. 1 has to be in it's own section b/c you can only have 3 in your main section. So I don't directly control what that other sections build but I do get half it's resources. This is how the game stops an empire just rushing out and colonising everything.

But that's all the colonizable worlds in my space. There's some others in alien space but no others in the galaxy that I've discovered so far. So I can't build any more. I just sit there, and let my tech slowly get researched, and build my forces up to their cap and attack pirate bases. Eventually I'll get some terraforming and colonising tech that'll let me settle less optimal worlds.

I'm kinda struggling with what I should do next.

The core world limit can be increased through technologies and the Unity system. Also, certain governments and/or traits can increase it beyond 3 as well. Terraforming comes way later and is super-expensive so don't wait on that.

Good to see NieR:Automata on the list. I haven't picked it up yet, but I will eventually. It seems like a quality game that normally wouldn't have been brought to PC, so I'm happy that they are getting their due.

I've gotten over my initial puzzlement over their choice of Idris for Roland, but that trailer didn't leave me hopeful about the movie. The scene where he loads his revolvers by somehow catching the bullets in the revolvers' cylinders in midair just dripped of Hollywood action movie crap. I'm afraid they're turning The Dark Tower into The Fast and The Furious, Mid-World Edition.

Also, I was disappointed by what was shown of McConaughey. Flagg is a character that would benefit from his more eccentric performances, and they didn't indicate that that would be the direction he was taking. He just looks like your typical action movie bad guy. Oh well, wait and see i guess.

Shame on you Hollywood...you have forgotten the face of your father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate.

It kinda felt like I was watching a preview for higher-budget fantasy NBC TV series. I'll probably still go watch it if the reviews aren't terrible, but not hopeful about this production. I was looking for something more mysterious and epic.

The head-scratching decision to call this game "Prey" aside, it looks like it has the potential to be good. Waiting for reviews/Let's Plays.

Their insistence to call this game "Prey" reminds when MS insisted that the FPS game be called "Shadowrun" when, in fact, it was nothing like the original. Shadowrun, while a decent MP game, failed due to labeling a well loved IP something that should never have been. Unless Prey is something amazing, I predict its imminent failure as well.

Prey is a cool name and very few people are familiar with the original title, so why not use the same name again? They probably want to start a new franchise with an iconic name and why shouldn't they? Come up with another good name for this game's premise if it's so easy.

News Comments > Call of Duty: WWII In November

9. Re: Call of Duty: World War II Announcement Apr 26, 2017, 15:36 Leper
 
If they wanted to make another WW2 game, I think they should have done alternative history. Something like the Nazis are invading the US. Germany has been nuked, but only after they've established a strong foothold on the East Coast. Maybe throw the Japanese on the West Coast for good measure (obviously similar to the Man in the High Castle setting).

It seems like having some new settings and a fresh story within the same era would be more interesting than re-hashing the same WW2 setting over and over again. And to be clear I'm not talking about introducing science-fiction, the occult or supernatural elements. Same gameplay, same weapons, fresh story, fresh environments (think WW2 battles in various US landscapes/cities).

But maybe there are a lot of players out there who are too young to have already played a WW2 FPS and that's what they're marketing this towards.

It's not only AMD cards that are adversely affected - it's also older NVIDIA cards. Whenever NVIDIA wants a sales boost, they can add some new useless feature to Gameworks that runs great on their new cards, but poorly on AMD and their older cards. I wouldn't have a problem if all these features were optional, but it's my understanding that they aren't always.

Clearly vampire-related dining although that still doesn't rule out Gordon Ramsay.

OMG, will someone please tell monitor makers that the curved display thing is a useless gimmick already??? Geez.

I'd like to spend some quality time with a curved display; though I feel like it's a gimmick I'm at least curious. Some how I don't think anyone is going to let me have a 1 week trial with one .

You could buy one and return it after a week (assuming your store's return policy is fairly lax).

Stellaris reminds me a lot of this game, although I have to admit that I probably had more fun playing Sins back in the day. I might have to check out this new update.

When they announced the first game they said it was going to be a trilogy where all three games can link into one combined map.

Link

That being the case, it wouldn't be a good idea to spread them out too much since the engine would just get more and more outdated.

I guess that makes sense if that's their goal.

It seems a bit early for a whole sequel. Hopefully they improve a everything across the board and this isn't solely cash grab. I'm pretty sick of the first one and wouldn't be interested in a sequel where it's just some new races and a new campaign.

I really wish they had skipped this and just jumped into the overdue Volta. I've been sitting on my 3gb GTX580 forever, waiting for a card capable of 4k@60 max settings. This won't be it still. Where the fuck is Volta? >=(

If I were them I'd be sitting on it while milking the more profitable current generation for as long as possible. Anyways, even a Volta card isn't going to be able to achieve 4k@60 max settings for every game since they'll always be games that push the envelope.

It's bad when a 3 year old game like GTA can beat out Ubisoft's new hotness.

To be fair For Honor was probably made with a fraction of the budget. At least I'd hope so since it seems to have pretty limited appeal.

Xactly. Those times have long sailed where shit gets cheaper when new shit comes out. Nowadays old shit simply goes EOL outta stock and is replaced by some new (often times more expensive) shit.

There's still plenty of old shit on eBay...

"Why is RoTTR on the top...OH it's $25"

Well now I've gone and spent $25.

That game is awesome. I highly recommend using an XBox One controller to get the advanced vibration effects. Of course then you'd be spending around $75.

*EDIT* Ugh, Fig, yet another crowdfunding platform. Oh well, I'll still contribute.

Oh well, I won't.

Because
1) There is no reason to do this on Fig instead of Kickstarter which worked just fine for the first game.

2) I'm not willing to give away my CC info to yet another crowdfunding platform for, maybe, a single pledge.

3) Once fully funded the game will be available for purchase at STEAM/GOG anyway.

You are free to do what you want, but for 1) you are arguing that monopolies are good. What if by using Fig instead of Kickstarter they save money and have more to put towards game development?

2) Most companies won't store your CC info unless you specifically ask them to. It may even be illegal to do without your consent. If you're worried about them stealing it, your CC has fraud protection which means you'll be reimbursed for charges that you don't make. I can't count how many companies I've used my credit card through. I watch my statements but haven't ever seen anything suspicious.

3) Yes, as long as it gets funded it will be available on Steam, etc. I guess the old argument is whether you want to give them your money now so they potentially have more money for development or if you want to give them your money later to reward them for a job well-done or so they potentially have more money for their next game. Totally your choice.
