News Comments > Egosoft Plans "Real" X4
4. Re: Egosoft Plans Dec 16, 2016, 11:32 yuastnav
 
From what I understand Deepsilver wanted to make a simplified X game for consoles. That pretty much backfire, especially because it was still to (technically) complicated for consoles (and because Egosoft don't have the best track record when it comes to releasing bug free games, the release of X3 was a mess where it crashed to desktop when you tried to edit the first sector) but I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and am this cautiously optimistic.

Man, I loved E.Y.E. Divine Cybermancy and I had SUCH high hopes for this game but it looks more disappointing by the day.

Irrelevant list because there is no Jedi Outcast.
How could they not include the Dark Forces series? I understand that the first Dark Forces was just a shooter but no game has done lightsaber fighting better before or after Jedi Knight Jedi Outcast.

I'd play Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy any day, the former especially for the multiplayer and the latter for the singleplayer (mp in JA is a buggy mess, afaik there has only ever been ONE patch that fixed minor things, shame on you Raven Software >:( ...)

Knights of the old republic were also really good games. Of course it's typical EA that they had to completely ruin it and make a MMO out of it. Bunch of utter morons. The second kotor was better, though. Better story, more interesting characters. Doesn't mean the first one isn't good. No, it's superb! But I guess I always liked Obsidian's story writing more than Bioware's, although their games are always a buggy mess (here's looking at you Alpha Protocol - such an interesting concept ruined by terrible shooting mechanics, a myriad of bugs and one of the worst PC ports I have ever seen).
Hope I'll be able to find some time to buy and play Tyranny over Christmas.

I really wish there would have been a sequel to Republic Commando. Another hint that the author has absolutely no idea what he is talking about when he says it feels more like a Tom Clancy game. But then again he probably only saw the new games. Because when it comes to tactics then Republic Commando is nothing like Ghost Recon or Rogue Spear.

Unfortunately I never played the older games, like Tie Fighter etc. so I cannot say anything about those but how the hell is Star Wars X-Wing Alliance not on that list. Instead you get Pod Racer (not that it's a bad game, it was actually pretty good but basing a game on one of the more boring parts of The Dark Menace is kinda weird - or just a cash grab). Just go home, Gerald.

Never played it. This is the game where you cannot jump, right? God that is so stupid in a first person shooter.

Doom 1 and 2 where great, despite not being able to jump, but the thing I want in a shooter is incredibly fast gameplay, just really fast movement and great shooting. These two things are really important. How can you make a modern shooter without jumping?

Well, like you said, you never played it, so having a negative opinion on the whole game because of that one fact is kinda silly. The reason it's there (or not, as it may be) is because it's not needed. In all honesty, I can't even remember if the ability to jump is there or not in Bulletstorm and that alone proves that having it wouldn't matter. Putting something in the game because every other FPS has it (ie chest high walls, cover mechanics or washed out brown textures) is a road littered with the burned out husks of CoD sequels and clones...and thus not what this particular game was/is about...


=-Rigs-=

Oh I did watch the wtf is of Bulletstorm and wasn't impressed either. Apart from that I don't play cover shooters. I only played the first Call of Duty and had enough of that series after that.
What I want is something like Quake 3 or Shadow Warrior 2. And both of these games use jumping extensively.
Personally the ability to jump is a must, whether it's really needed or not. I just feel extremely limited when I cannot do that, like I'm in a straitjacket or something. (apply only to shooters, of course)

I was really looking forward to this, especially because this is made by Streum-On Studios, but after skipping through the upload of TotalBiscuit's stream of this game I'm kinda disappointed.
He wasn't too fond of it either.

This is a first person shooter. Why is this idiot playing it with a controller?

Anyway, the narrow FOV is kinda vomit-inducing.

The "turn into a cup" thing looks like a gimmick that will get old fast.

Making stairs with that gun looked like fun, though I wonder how limited this will be in the final game. For some reason when I think about destruction and/or modification of the game world I always think back to the glass house in Red Faction 1. It's been over a decade since this game was released and no one has figured out how to do deformation of the landscape and levels well.

Looks like this game has one of the worse shotguns in shooters.

I admit, using the kinetic blast to rocket jump is kinda cool but very, very slow.

Of course this game has crafting. How can it not? -_-


Yeah so this trailer does not excite me.

Never played the first game but I like the second one, despite it's shortcomings which happened due to it being a console port.

I am just gonna leave this link here

What if jobs are the problem, not the solution

It made me realize that computerization of large portions of jobs may not be as far fetched and far away as I thought, and imo it should be a mandatory read, and should be seen as a new experience, to look at work from an different angle, and to look at the consequence of doing so, so leave your preconceptions about how "work builds character" at the door before entering.

And remember, Asian school children dominate math, but you know what they don't dominate? Cultural development. Those making culture are not the ones acing math and science and culture is what defines a nation, not it's jobs. Shouldn't this mean that we should strife to educate children so they further our culture and society, and not our economy?

Isn't Trump winning the perfect proof? Everyone puts so much value on jobs, everyone is sad and angry they lost their jobs, instead of creating something new out of that, something that does not benefit the economy, but the society of your nation, your neighborhood even, even if it's based on "entitlements" and even if you have to sustain yourself on a slightly lower luxury level... mhh, food for thought.

I'll agree that it's time to start thinking of a new paradigm. Most people enjoy "work" in order to have some purpose and stimulation in life. Just sitting around doing nothing sucks and saps your morale, leading to drug abuse, mental illness, and other issues. And here's a nasty quote from the article:

Almost half of employed adults in this country are eligible for food stamps (most of those who are eligible donít apply). The market in labour has broken down, along with most others.

Income inequality is just STUPID. How about instituting a living minimum wage, like $20 per hour? That would cut down on the user of government services is a massive way. Walmart and places like it actually train their workers to use government services to supplement their incomes. It's corporate welfare at its most pernicious.

The sad thing (because it is politically untenable) is that it would be a HUGE boon to the economy. Poor and lower middle income people spend their money, nearly all of it. This stimulates the economy by cycling the money through it. Rich people just sock it away, often overseas. Or they invest it, but trickle down economics has been pretty much proven to fail at this point.

I guess you don't understand math or economics. Taking other people's money and giving it to someone with no expectation of them doing anything to earn it would be hugely inefficient and wasteful. They will spend it on cheetos and beer and video games. It would be much smarter to take all that money you want to take from real earners, and give it back to those who produce in the form of tax breaks. They will then take that money and build something of value that deadbeats can choose to work for.

You Bernie fools are a riot. Go to Cuba and see your shit-hole commie/socialist utopia...or Venezuela. Seriously, go to one of those awesome places that gives everything to everyone. Only problem is that when the government runs out of people producing, runs out of their money, it turns evil. But, ya know free shit and Bernie. Idiots.

What does having a fair wage have to do with communism? I don't understand how you've made that connection.

It's all in the nickname.

I just hope the weak sales mean that we'll get better sales during the winter sale.

The spacing between the sales is really weird, though. There is one in summer, sometime around August, then we may get a Halloween sale in October, an autumn sale in November and a winter sale in December. And then not much happens until next summer.

I also miss daily flash sales. They were fun. But there's a lot of really good deals in this sale. I wouldn't call them mediocre.

As for Doom VS Shadow Warrior 2, they're still pretty different games. Shadow Warrior is more freeform, open ended and customizable. Doom is more linear and focused. I do prefer SW2. The combat is just so much better. I would definitely play both though.

They claimed that they added the glory kills to Doom to make the game faster. What a load of bullsh*t. Play SW2 and tell me which one is faster. Glory kills are only there to make the game playable for gamepad users.

That is my point exactly. The glory kill system ruined DOOM for me. I couldn't play it for more than a few hours. Plus it didn't help that I didn't like the map design. The shooting felt okay. Not great.

Shadow Warrior 2 is a whole different beast to me. TB criticised it because of the whole "looter shooter" thing which is ridiculous to me because I never looked at this game this way. The shooting feels tremendously satisfying, the maps are great and the movement is so much fun. You can be so fast in this game.

Doom's 20 bucks. That seems a pretty good price.

In my opinion DOOM is not worth it.
Shadow Warrior 2 is just better in every respect, so I'd totally recommend that!

Anyone can be asked to do anything, now whether they do it or not is a different matter.

The issue was that there is a committee that is supposed to figure out to what extent the NSA spied on German citizens or something like that. Now this committee is made up of the minority, as far as I know of people from the Green and the Left parties.
They wanted to get Snowden so they could interview him, since he is the one who knows the most and would be willing to share this information. However the federal government of Germany refused to invite him since they don't really give a damn about German citizens and didn't want to upset the USA since, once Snowden would arrive in Germany, they would need to think about granting him asylum.
The Green and the Left party sued and Germany's federal court of justice agreed with them and basically told the German government that they HAVE to assist this committee, there is no way around that.

That is why Snowden can be asked now but couldn't before. Our spineless, cowardly politicians in the government just refused to.

Will probably play it once I get to play on my gaming machine again. Need to finish Shadow Warrior 2 first and also play Dishonoured 2.

I like Obsidian games.

I could only bear to play this for a couple of hours.

I dunno. The shooting felt extremely subpar. Didn't feel satisfying at all. I remember watching TB's WTF is and thinking "Alright! This looks good."
Well, looks can be deceiving. Was very disappointed.

Then again I only really liked the first Far Cry (up until the mutants). I quit Far Cry 2 after two hours or so and haven't touched any of the sequels (except Blood Dragon) since. And I don't think I'm missing out much.

I just want a modern take on Transport Tycoon, with features from Simutrans like underground building and none of the jankiness.
