If it's anything like the Musou/Warriors games Koei Tecmo makes, they're hack and slash action games, not JRPGs, so by comparison there really isn't much story or dialogue in them at all. It's supposed to tie in with the second season of the anime, so I presume it'll have some, but there won't be literally hours of cutscenes throughout a super long campaign. It's more like some brief set-up for each combat scenario, and then most of the gameplay time is spent outside of story mode anyway, on various other standalone scenarios. Probably will still be some repetitive battle cries, though. :p

Download the WB Cinema app and if enough people pay a $2 fee when prompted the projectionist will play an EXCLUSIVE post-credits scene!

Yep, coins so they can jump into and swim around in their $7.1b+ cash reserves like Scrooge McDuck.

That Humble Rockstar Bundle is a disgustingly good deal if somehow someone didn't have most or all of those games already.

News Comments > Fallout 4 Free Weekend
26. Re: Fallout 4 Free Weekend Jan 30, 2018, 20:00 jacobvandy
 
I think we need to be prepared for another 7-8 year gap between FO4 and FO5, at least... We know Bethesda Game Studios is working on a new IP which is coming before TES VI does, so even assuming they don't have another new thing coming after that, Fallout is third in line for releases from a studio that puts something out once every 3-5 years.

With that said, I'd be surprised if we don't get another side project or spin-off from a different developer in the meantime. Regardless of anyone's opinion of the games' quality, Fallout is now a top tier AAA franchise and there's no doubt they're looking to capitalize on that more.

You want the Armorsmith Extended mod, it fixes up just about everything to do with armor and opens up a lot more customization. It's pretty OP if you stack as much as you can with ballistic weave in every piece, but it is nice to be able to make any outfit you want at least usable for playing in.

If they can figure out a way to make a Keurig machine for soda that isn't stupid expensive, I might want one. Otherwise, who owns what doesn't affect people much. AFAIK Dr. Pepper and 7-Up and whatever else is under that umbrella are already licensed out to be distributed by either Coke or Pepsi in most places.

The number doesn't mean anything, you continue earning skill points at each subsequent "level-up" and once you fill out the entire skill tree you're left with three nodes for ranged/melee/ability damage that can each be raised indefinitely. There is no limit to how strong you can become through grinding or spending real money (which we all know is the reason why it's uncapped).

Their leveling system doesn't have a cap, though, and they already created a setting that makes all enemies scale to you. One way to try to cure a boring endgame is to just let you repeat the story and location checklist again.

I'm 35 hours in so far and it's really opening up. Past the "naked and afraid" stage, the story exposition, the first couple levels of technology advancement... I just parked my mobile home-away-from-home 850m down in a big-ass cave so I can really explore it without having to make such long trips back to drop off loot and resupply. Though I had to kill a pretty big monster to get some peace and quiet, first...

The ocean world concept is brilliant for a survival game because it makes it very obvious where is safe and where is not, beginning with your access to oxygen. Land is rare but pretty much a paradise, shallows are well lit with plentiful food and other basic supplies, while you gotta deal with the darkness and increasingly more dangerous wildlife that dwell deeper in order to find more advanced resources/tech and progress the story. Then if you're venturing away from the surface at all, you need a source of breathable air, which means keeping your undersea habitat(s) and/or vehicles in good shape and powered up as you range ever further from where you started.

Yes, it's rough around the edges, the controls and menus are pretty wonky and there are a lot of minor bugs I've been reporting, but that's never stopped me from enjoying a great game before. Every single game that exists really should have this handy-dandy feedback tool, though. You press F8 and it pauses the game, takes a screenshot, prompts you for a brief description and general category, then you submit it by clicking on one of four emotes ranging from green and smiling to red and pissed off.

Yeah... As someone who kept up with earning Infernal or Gold portrait frames every season for the first 7 or 8 seasons, even I don't really care anymore. They're still giving away the same fucking armor skins they have from the start, at two pieces per season it's all been repeated FOUR TIMES now. Totally "exclusive!"

A friend of mine gifted me this game today.

While we too often criticize, another way games have become better... Gifting.

Huh? I could've sworn people have been buying games for other people for as long as the medium has existed, lol.

I'm not a fan of the super low-res pixel art, but it's supposed to be a really great 2D platformer.

I think a big way of reducing this sort of scheisse would be for the government to mandate that the prices for these things have to be listed in dollars and cents, no "credits" or whatever they want to call it to disguise the fact that you're spending real money. It's no different from casinos where you have to use their tokens or pay cards. Anything to keep from reminding you you're spending actual real money.

It's more than that, currently any game with a virtual currency exchange can get away with all sorts of bullshit and not be held responsible since you're not buying crates with your money, you're buying space bucks. It doesn't matter how screwed you got when you spent those space bucks, whether by design or in error, you're not entitled to a refund because you got exactly what you paid for when you spent the real money. That's the foundation of the app store business for Google and Apple.

Yeah, but it sounds like they really fucked up and it's hard to recover from that. I haven't been following this at all, but there was so much hype for the game after it showed at E3, people liking what they saw of it more than anything from the AAA sector... So it's unfortunate they weren't able to capitalize on such a huge PR advantage that a lot indie devs would kill for.

I stopped playing this one after 2 weeks into the game. Aside from the desire to make people repeat the same stupid maps and missions, is the internal comms for the game.

What a bunch of jack asses to create a game that demands multiplayer teamup to progress, and then not provide any in game tools for a clan to communicate with each other. you have to go to the bungie website. They are going out of there way to slow down progress so people will continue to play. I pick the F**K You option, and i stopped all together.

Who the hell uses in-game chat for anything on PC? Teamspeak, Skype, Vent, Mumble, or now Discord... No offense, but your clan needs to get its shit together.

IMO it's a bunch of BS, all these lazy journalists taking a canned response from a CSR on Twitter as the company's official statement on the matter... As if a minimum wage schlep who probably works from home has any idea what's actually going on with their app development, or if they did that they'd be allowed to say anything about it. They already have Hulu on Switch, so it's not like Nintendo is against it, it's just a matter of time.

Edit: Yeah, they've already gone back and deleted the earlier tweet, clarifying with language even more vague so that it can't be interpreted as negative.

He removed his goggles for just a moment, to wipe away the colorful paint splattered across them, and then his life changed forever.

Well, that'll learn ya, won't it? You don't wear the goggles just to keep paint out of your eyes because it stings a little, you wear them AT ALL TIMES to prevent your eyeball exploding when it's hit by a screaming projectile at hundreds of feet per second... Ol' one-eye knows that now. 12 years old seems a bit young to be playing whole-hog paintball in the first place, too, especially considering the clear absence of a respect for safety.

They're honestly really good - maybe the success of the Switch will give the Wii U a last hurrah?

I'm hoping they continue to bring the best games over to Switch, like they've already done with Mario Kart, Splatoon, and Pokken. Everyone wants Smash Bros. ASAP so I wouldn't be surprised if that gets the deluxe treatment, too, Bayonetta is coming soon, and then all that's left are the Mario platformers and HD Zelda. Although after having played and enjoyed Xenoblade 2, I wouldn't mind if they re-release the older games from that series, as well.
