News Comments > Beyond Good & Evil 2 Teased?
11. Re: Beyond Good & Evil 2 Teased? Sep 28, 2016, 07:46 yuastnav
Ugh, at this point it's REALLY getting tiresome.

I remember, about ten years ago, I played BG&E and I was really into everything.
Even joined a small community of people who really wanted it to happen and always compiled every little bit of information they could get.
This board has been mostly inactive for many many years. Everyone's tired.

It's basically like South Park's parody of Game of thrones.

Ubi was always like "Oh yeah yeah, BG&E2 is totally coming, here's a teaser." then nothing, for a couple of years
"Oh yeah, it's totally coming, here's a screenshot/interview snippet/teaser"
And then there was also things like "well, Ancel is working on Rayman right now so BG&E2 is on hold but if people buy THAT game we'll reconsider". like wtf Ubi

God, I was really into BG&E but by now I just don't care anymore. Fuck Ubi.

Watching the video it doesn't look like the AI is very good at playing Doom. It may be better than the bots it's playing against but I don't think it would stand very long against a player that can play the Doom MP at least kinda decent.
Some of the moves it does are just really weird, like where it couldn't decide whether to shoot an opponent or pick up a gun.

It would be much more interesting to have a deep learning algorithm play something like Quake 3 where there are a lot more advanced moves like rocket jumps, bunny hopping, strafe jumps etc. and where map awareness, player spawns and weapon/armour spawns are much more important. Also movement and aiming in a 3D environment.

Let the AI play on public servers, get better and better and then play against some of the top players like cooller, av3k, cypher, rapha, fox, toxic, etc.

Odd - I own Shadow Warrior (2013), but, it does not come up as an eligible title. It did find a few others, so I'm guessing it's just buggy.

Same issue here. I've contacted GOG and am waiting for their reply.

Woah, that came out of nowhere. I love the first game to bits but I don't have access to my main gaming rig to try this out.

Oh well, I'll just put it on my wishlist.

I really like my Nexus 5 and was glad spending the 400 two years ago.
If the price really is going to be that high on the Pixel phone I hope they'll at least lower the price on the current 5X/6P.

Furthermore, when I had a small smartphone with limited functionality I didn't use it very much. After I got the Nexus 5 I started using it a lot more. Take photos, check emails, read news, read books (that's why I'd love to have a slightly larger screen), sometimes even ssh onto a machine and do a little bit of work. And having internet all the time is really useful, too.

I still think that the top of the line phones are overpriced but not by that much. There is a lot of useful features packed into a single device.

Yeah only because you had bad maths teachers doesn't mean you will start hating maths. You may be bad at maths because you suck at it.

I like physics and maths despite having bad teachers. Same thing with history. Once I got good teachers in these subjects in grades 11 to 13 I ended up liking these subjects even more.

A tutor is necessary if you have bad teachers and if you are struggling. If you don't like a certain subject from within it is unlikely a good teacher will change that. Know plenty of people who told me they had good teachers who explained everything very well, they just sucked at the subject. Even some that liked it sucked at it.

You need the right frame of mind for it.

I'm pretty happy with my Nexus 5. Always up to date, I'm in control of my apps, it's really fast. It's great.

No way in hell I'd ever use an Apple product. It's not directly Apple itself but the it's the userbase that pisses me off. I get the feeling that a lot of Apple's customers are these really mindless drones that NEED NEED NEED the next Apple product. It's like a cult.

Anyway, I used an iphone once and it's really confusing. Of course I'm used to the vanilla android on my Nexus but on the iphone it's more difficult than it needs to be, i.e. how you access your settings and stuff like that. Android is far from perfect but iOS is needlessly confusing.

Hopefully the Pixel phone will be reasonably priced so I can replace my Nexus 5. I would've kept it for a while longer but unfortunately it is starting to fall apart and crashes rather frequently so I'll have to retire it a bit earlier than expected.

Oh well, if the Pixel phones will be too expensive I'll have to get the 5X or the 6P. Really would like to get the 6P but it's expensive as hell. 800 Euros for the 128 GB version wat

This. Also you can't really compare Skyrim (or even any TES game) to the Witcher3. They are NOT even in the same genre. The Witcher3 is an open world action/adventure role playing game, Skyrim is an open world CRPG. In the W3 you play as ONE character, one PARTICULAR character actually and that's it. You can't even choose a class, your class is basically "a Witcher". Saying that one game here is better than the other is kind of pointless.

Skyrim is a CRPG? Wat _
Baldur's Gate is a CRPG. Fallout 2 is a CRPG. Pillars of Eternity is a CRPG. Skyrim is more like an open-world action adventure with RPG elements.

I don't get why people are so up in arms about this. The game is procedurally rendered, so obviously it'll be mostly boring. Obviously there'll be stupid stuff. But also obviously there'll be really cool things.

For example, I just found last night a planet with what looked like a tyrannosaurus Rex with a crest on the top of its head. And it attacked me. I also walked through a jungle with monsoons. And got lost in caverns of frozen planets.

There's some really good stuff in there, but as are most sandbox games (especially procedural ones), the story is lacking, the fighting is meh (really really meh in this case), but if you wander a bit off the beaten path you can get enough satisfaction that $50 is money acceptably spent.

So what about all the things that they have shown in the videos and aren't in the game?
If the game would've been like it was shown in the gameplay videos from the last months I would've bought it. As it stands now it's just a giant heap of broken promises and disappointments. And I'm not talking about hype.
I'm talking about simple things like being able to fly close to the ground, land manually or large fleets of ships. And also more complex things like more than two types of behaviour for the critters.

I think that you guys are too blinded by your emotions or previous investments to realize how amazing the tech in that demo was. There's never been anything done at a level close to this. If you want a full simulation of a space game, this is the real deal. They took no shortcuts. Don't reply to my comment about how you think this is a scam or all that endlessly repetitive noise. Just appreciate the tech.

What "tech" exactly are you referring to? The planetary atmospheric entry stuff? There have been videos on YT for years like this one here and many more.
You can also seamlessly land on planets across the 400bn star systems in Elite Dangerous until you have planets coming out your ass. It's nothing special.

Everything else has also been done in other games and much better than here. So what "tech" are you talking about exactly?

Unfortunately everything in Elite Dangerous is instanced, not seamless. I'm not even sure it's fully seamless in No man's sky, I cannot shake the feeling that they are cheating somewhere.
I think it's seamless in Rodina and maybe Evochron? But that's it.

IDK, I think to many people are to easily impressed. I really didn't see anything about this that blew me away. To many people are in a hurry to praise what they are seeing, but the reality of it is, hes had 5 years to make this game so far. And this is all he really has to show for? Those of us who originally backed this game are getting very I'm patient with him.

Don't count me among the many who are ready to bow down to him. Everything I've seen here No Mans Sky is already doing.

Took NMS 8 years to ship their game, and they did a lot less than what Roberts is trying to do. Which rather than bowing down, has me scratching my head: how is he going to finish this within budget and make it all work in a cohesive whole while delivering all of those mechanics over a "universe" of 100 unique star systems? The proof of concept is shaping up nicely, but that's just one system...

8 years? Where did you get that number? Every place of read has stated 4 years.

I actually could not get a proper answer when I googled how long it took to develop No man's sky. I think the first announcement was in 2012 or something like that and they already had a small gameplay video, I think. So it's likely it took them longer to develop the game.

Although I'm not sure why. I guess they did a lot of fucking around with some algorithms or something because there is not a lot of game to speak of.

Star Citizen has already more gameplay than NMS. It looks okay. Not great. Still not confident they will pull off what they set out to do.

How's the hacking minigame in this, I wonder? The one in DX:HR caused me major burn-out on that aspect on the game (still managed to finish the game). I'm a compulsive idiot so I'd need a mod to bypass it or something to even consider dipping into this one any time soon, if hacking is as plentiful..

From what I read this is one of the things that works exactly the same as in the previous game.

Apparently the story is kinda weak but the gameplay is very good and just an overall improvement over Human Revolution.

Really cool. I already wondered what they are going to do. More DLC for this awesome game is always welcome.

Though I'd also wager that they are working on a new project. Wonder what it'll be.

Really cool! Looks like the developers of E.Y.E. Divine Cybermancy did a good job. I knew Streum On Studios had it in them after I've seen how WH40K-esque E.Y.E. was. Hope this will be good.

"Press E to initiate landing"

okay so we're already off to an incredibly bad start. Why can't I just land on my own?

Also can you accelerate to high speeds yourself or do you need to use this "boost" to travel between planets? Can I just point the nose of my ship at some random point and travel in that direction, just accelerating? Maybe getting to another start without "warping"?

I wonder whether something like that would work in Elite Dangerous, i.e. whether you would actually be able to reach another star. Since flight assist doesn't work in cruise mode it wouldn't work since you'd run out of fuel.
These are the kind of things that really bug me, in any space game. You get the impression that it's this really big universe and you can go anywhere you want but I cannot get immersed when I see that star systems are just really big levels/boxes and you go from box to box.
I realise that this is the easiest way to solve this problem from a technical point of view but it's so frustrating.

Looking at what No man's sky does it doesn't hold a candle to Elite Dangerous. This game has it's own problems but at least there is stuff to do. There is a whole faction system, albeit not a very dynamic one.

I would've loved if NMS did the things it set out to do but it looks like, especially from that reddit post, that it's just one huge disappointment.
We love to laugh at Star Citizen but at least they are taking their time, even if it's taking forever. Though they are selling a bag of dreams they don't claim that they have a finished game.

Calling NMS finished is misleading. Yeah, they technically released it and you can call anything finished but it has so many shortcomings.

At this point I will just wait until I can grab it for ten bucks or so to get my 3 or 4 hours of fun out of this game and call it a day. I love sandbox games, open world games and games where you can explore. But this is just like every other mediocre survival game on steam that brings barely anything new to the table.
