Can't be a coincidence, first Dishonored 2 and then prey, under bethesda's thumb. Surely this is exactly why Human Head didn't kneel at the bethesda altar.

Not sure what you mean? Dishonored 2 and Prey are both great games. Before Zenimax bought them, Arkane made Arx Fatalis and Dark Messiah of Might & Magic. Their games under Bethesda have sold significantly more, had much better critical reception and have made the studio a much more established name.

I like Arx and Dark Messiah way more than Dishonored. I didn't play Prey, but from what I saw, I'm not even interested in it. Sure, the new games are selling more, but I'd rather have the old studio back. To me it seems like their new games lack any kind of passion. Like they're just churning AAA games for the money instead of love. They don't evoke much excitement in me, partly because of that.

Hell, the two stash tabs are almost worth $15. A premium stash tab over on Path of Exile is $4 and I've bought at least 20 of them. So $7.5 is a bit high, but in the acceptable range.

Different opinion: I would pay 5 bucks top for this.

I'm not a lawyer. Do we get our mods back or not?
Yes. As long as they can't be used for MP, you don't make money from them, and they don't steal assets/characters from other games (including other Rockstar games).

As far as I can tell OpenIV is still closed down because of the cease and desist they received. So, still bad.

Did they unban the single-player-only mod that they banned? The only reason there's backlash.

I've worked on implementing recoil in a PC game myself. If you want your shooting to feel weighty, reactive and fun, you need recoil. This includes moving the mouse. This guy doesn't sound to me like he knows what he's doing. A ton of great shooters have recoil. Has he never played a PC game?

I finished the article and the game (just last weekend). I don't think the description of rpg was so cringe-worthy.

His definition means that Doom would be a RPG. He's acting like he knows what he's talking about, giving us the official definition of RPG, but it's so dumb... Also, he says that Horizon is a RPG... If you agree with that, I can't discuss this with you further...

Mental note: Avoid Steam like the plague on Thursday when billions of tards will be hammering the site cuz they MUST know THE MINUTE the sale begins which games are on how deep a discount even though the sale runs for a month or so while discounts will be lame as fuck as usual the last three years. Play an Origin, GOG or uPlay game on Thursday instead. Mental note end.

Oh. And fuck Valve in advance for still not being able to properly scale up their network to meet the demands of a sale onslaught. Losers.

I never had a problem playing games during Steam sales. The store page is always completely f'ed though.

Fucking drama queens. Them losers been playing that game every fucking day since it came out for PC. This is the kind of shit that has Rockstar flip the PC off for.

So you're against gamers voicing their discontent when a developer kills mods in order to juice more money out of the customers? You like all these microtransactions and day one DLC bs? Because it happened when gamers didn't say anything. Who cares if Rockstar puts their game on PC or not. We've got infinite good games to play, we don't need to bend over for them.

I knew this was coming. Normally I'd agree, just not in this case. Too much drama -- way too much drama! -- for what the dev did. GTA5 is insanely good on so many levels, even people who don't like the game can't possibly disagree with that. I say this and I am not even remotely a fan of the game. And what happened now? They removed their mod support or w/e and the game is now marked as Overwhelmingly Bad on the #1 marketplace for PC games. Fucking hilarious.

I thought that GTA V was mediocre. Huge step back in simulation quality from 4 and I haaaaate the multiple character implementation for various gameplay reasons. Edit: Yes, a ton of features are crazy advanced and there's lots to do, but I just didn't have much fun with it. I liked Watch Dogs 1 better.
Also, the modding tool Rockstar banned was only for single player mods. You couldn't use it in multiplayer. Anyway, that was my understanding from the videos I saw about it. So Rockstar's excuse of stopping cheating was a lie.
The thing with GTA 5 PC is that a ton of people bought it FOR the mods. Many bought it for the third time! I think it's perfectly fine for people to lower the rating of a game if an aspect of it is negative, which is the case here, the publisher is doing a bad job of supporting it. It doesn't make steam reviews useless, it makes them incredibly useful. You have to read them though, I know it's hard.
Please don't take this as me telling you your opinion is stupid. I just love games and want people involved and want publishers to stop squeezing us for every penny at the cost of the quality of games and the gaming experience.

I wish I liked this game. I loved Dead Island, but I just can't get into this one. It's too grindy, there's too much backtracking and I hate the entire weapon system. You feel bad for using weapons and using them is almost useless anyway because they break almost instantly. I gave it 11 hours, so I think I gave it a fair shot.

No, the plan was always to release new biomes during the Early Access period (scheduled to last 1 year). For free.

For those wanting an honest opinion, it's good fun, with some frustrations - building is enjoyable and we're given an interesting setting. There are bugs and so on, but it's Early Access, and the devs are communicative and are tackling issues. If you're interested in playing during Early Access and contributing, I'd recommend the game. If not, wait until the proper launch next year and see what people think then.

I play these types of games with 2-4 friends on a private server with no pvp. Is there enough content, challenge and enjoyment to play this in coop pve? 7 Days to Die is the golden standard right now. Ark is OK.

I dunno, seems like I was right. Like you say, this isn't representative of real gameplay. The whole first part is 100% a cinematic. The real game might still play like that cinematic, and that would be bad like I explained in my second part. For the rest, you kid yourself if it's representative of a real game. They do this all the time, have scripted cutscenes with player control. If they moved a centimeter in any direction, everything would break. They'd like the game to play like this, but it never happens. These trailers have existed since forever and have never been realistic.

Yeah, seems like an argument for the sake of pedantically "being right", which is ironic because technically you aren't.

Sure, the feature set along the demo path is probably far more fleshed out than the rest of the game (otherwise it would be launching rather than announced of course), but the core of it looks very interesting to this old Firefall/Borderlands etc fan.

You can be cautiously optimistic about something without being a naive fool, and you can be justifiably skeptical without being a cunt.

I don't think I was a cunt. Don't get me wrong, I can't wait for Anthem. But, this doesn't look like a Bioware game and this trailer is mostly BS. I don't like BS and lies.

This definitely isn't real gameplay. The game will play somewhat like this, but this is basically just a huge cutscene. With that said, if this IS representative of the final gameplay, this is terrible. There's no gameplay... It's just an interactive movie with constant scripted cutscenes. There's also zero player choice, no conversation trees... Nah. What happened to you Bioware?

So, just fro ma 6 min video you already gathers all that information? Yea, OK!!!

yeah. Any questions?

Nope, just correcting you and saying that you are completely wrong about the game. I contacted a friend of mine who works for BioWare. I asked him about that trailer. this is what he said.

It's pretty obvious that the demo starts as an in-game cinematic until you get outside. At that point, it's people actually playing the game, though they are following a script and a set path.

So, yea you are wrong. yes they followed a script, but it wasn't scripted like you are saying. It was live and with live Coop players joining them.

I dunno, seems like I was right. Like you say, this isn't representative of real gameplay. The whole first part is 100% a cinematic. The real game might still play like that cinematic, and that would be bad like I explained in my second part. For the rest, you kid yourself if it's representative of a real game.

It seems more like a STALKER type of game than the linear predecessors. If it's the case, I'm interested. I'm not a huge fan of the other games though, so I dunno. It's weird because atmospheric shooters is usually a thing I love...

Zero interest if it's win10 only!
