So glad Machine Games is developing this series again, as they did such a great job rebooting the series with NO and OB, despite having to use/work with the idTech5 engine......

@eRe4s3r: May have been a temporary glitch in the matrix for you at the time, as I just watched the embedded video.

Fallout VR.....not really liking the first person presence, especially with weapons (especially hand guns) floating in mid air....look too wonky to me. I'll stick to my 28" monitor thank you very much.


Floating guns look weird when you're not in VR. When they move with your hands, your brain immediately accepts it. Also, Raw Data does the "hands and arms" thing and it screws up enough that it's far more distracting than just having the guns floating.

Seriously, BEFORE saying something looks wrong or cheap in VR, how about you actually try it first? You need to give it a good hour's worth of goofing around in it, and THEN ask what few questions you have left. To those of us with VR gear, the CONSTANT asking of questions that are instantly answered by USING VR feels like having to describe every component of a casserole to a picky 5 year old. Just fucking try it, shut your mouth and TRY IT.

Easy there tiger, I said it looked 'wonky' to me, not wrong or cheap. But, now that I've read your post, and others, explaining why it looks that way, it makes sense. So, I'll have to demo some VR goggles to get the true visual experience.

im getting a bit of a Duke Nukem vibe from it... its got an over-the-top action plus weirdo comedy thing going on... seems a bit different than the previous ones

I'm glad Machine Games is continuing with the franchise, as they did a great job reviving it with New Order and Old Blood, but yeah, I agree, hopefully they don't Duke it up too much.

I'm a fan of this series, and this one looks to have good potential, but I just hope it isn't too scripted and bogged down by QTEs.

I got Wolfenstein on a Steam sale last year for cheap, and I was pleasantly surprised how fun and decent it was. That prompted me to get Old Blood, which I thought was even more fun, but too short.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is being developed by Machine Games, which is great news, and it is scheduled to release this year (hopefully).

For breakfast a couple times a week, I enjoy FAGE all natural plain Greek yogurt with a little blue agave sweetener, crushed up all natural granola bar, and fresh berries (raspberries, blackberries, and/or blueberries). Healthy, satisfying, and tastes F'ing great!

Well, when you have negative opinions about pretty much everything, your chances of being right about a game not doing well are pretty high.

Oh... look... CJ has a negative opinion on something he hasn't personally experienced. That's a surprise. I literally cannot believe it. I'm so shocked the guy that does nothing but come here to complain about every single thing, the guy who apparently gets joy from nothing other than making us hear his endless diatribes about how he hates everything, hates this game.

Such wonderful contributions.

Yeah, I too found this to be very surprising.

WOW, 25 years? Happy Birthday Wolfenstein 3D!

I remember downloading this from a BBS and was immediately mesmerized and enthralled. That is when my PC gaming addiction all started.

Yes, I feel old now too.

News Comments > Arkane: Steam Refunds = PC Prey Demo
9. Re: Arkane: Steam Refunds = PC Prey Demo May 3, 2017, 11:02 MajorD
 
We couldn't do a demo on both the console and on the PC, we had to choose. And besides, PC has Steam. Steam players can just return the game [prior to playing] 2 hours so it's like a demo already.

I don't know, maybe my coffee hasn't kicked in, but this just struck me as a copout douchebag spin.

Isn't getting a refund through Steam a hassle, or is it pretty painless? Regardless, I think it is douchebag response.

I also want to clarify that there's no PC port. I keep on hearing 'oh they're going to screw up the PC port' there is no PC port. We do the game on PC.

Since when?

It looks almost identical to Grimrock. I like dungeon crawlers and will keep an eye on this. Hopefully it isn't just a rip-off.

Yeah, same thing I thought when I watched the trailer. I think 'Almost Human' resurrected this genre, and did it well I must say.

All the whining aside, I couldn't put my finger on what bugged me a bit about this game until this trailer.

You have Generic Scientist A holding a coffee cup while talking to Generic Scientist B. Generic Scientist A's coffee cup suddenly morphs itself in to an alien that attacks and, presumably, kills him.

The killing part doesn't bother me, what bothers me is that there's no way that alien could mimic the coffee cup without the cup itself becoming incredibly heavy. Assuming the alien has mass, the density would become unreal when packing it down from something that looks about 3' tall and 2.75' wide (from extremity to extremity) down to the size of that cup.

The other option is that the alien creature has very little mass so that the density wouldn't significantly change. That, too, provides a problem because then your projectile based weapons with the apparently high muzzle velocity would rip them to shreds in very short order. Even the average strength of the human hand and arm would be able to pull them off of you, wad them in to a ball, keep them there, and then blow them out the airlock.

I don't know if you were being facetious or not, but either way I got a good chuckle out of your post.

All 13 windows phone users are steaming mad.

I have 1 of those 13 Windows Phones (Lumia 950XL). Don't knock them until you try it (if you haven't). I've used iPhones and Androids; each one has there positives and negatives, but I've liked the WP the best. I have/use the whole ecosystem, so everything (phone, Surface, desktop) communicates and syncs nicely. It baffles me it isn't more popular than a 3% market share.

Rumor around the virtual camp fire is that the MS Surface team has been working on a 'Surface Phone' that will - supposedly - have x86 architecture. If they can't/don't make any (enough) headway with this, I think they'll be done in the mobile market.
