Hellgate is my favorite Diablo clone ever. I loved the game and would play more of it today in a heartbeat. The news that there's no multiplayer is a huge buzzkill though.

I've seen a couple people here and elsewhere with sentiments like this, and I have to wonder if we're still talking about the same game... I remember the beta(early retail?) release, vaguely, and the game was empty and boring, with less than stellar controls and pretty terrible graphics on top of it all.

The game isn't empty... There's literally like 50 enemies at the same time in a single room sometimes. Perhaps the most of any Diablo-clone and it was all 3D too! Boring is subjective, but it was as engaging as any Diablo clone there ever was. The game has a crazy amount of content though. It takes a long time to reach new zones if you do all side quests, so maybe that's what you found boring? I think that more content before you reach the end-game grind is awesome though. Path of Exile does this too.

Controls were perfectly fine.

Graphics were bad in some areas yeah, but overall, with all the details and action, I never complained.

I think people who didn't like it either didn't know what the game really was or had unrealistic expectations. The art and overall style and settings are amazing. The skill system is great and you can play any way you want and it warrants full replays. The loot system is the best there is even today in my opinion. It's super fun to just jump into these rooms with tons of enemies and blow them up with full physics. Plus, it has full coop.

Moved from arrow keys to wasd around Counter-Strike. One thing that grinds my gears is stupid games trying to tell me 'e' is the use key.
It's 'f', you fuckers!

F is for melee, you heathen! E is for use!

F is obviously flashlight/attachment and middle mouse button is use, pleb.

F is indeed flashlight, but space is use

It was only when I was getting my ass handed to me by mousers in Qtest that I finally learnt to use it. IIRC the mouse also moved you forwards and back in Doom, which made it awkward for me.

I used a similar layout, RMB for forward, until some game came along that couldn't rebind WASD so I just decided to get used to that so most games wouldn't need everything re-bound.

I played Blood deathmatch(bloodbath) on HEAT back in the day. I was crazy good using the keyboard only. I'd look down to shoot rockets in mid-air with page down and all that stuff. One day I got completely utterly dominated by one guy. This had never happened. Turns out he was using the mouse. That was the time I started using the mouse...

I've been playing FPS games since Catacombs Abyss 3D and I never used WASD. Before FPS games were mouse-based, which is roughly before Quake 1, I used the arrow keys to move and turn and S and D to strafe, which was usually the default controls.

For mouse-based games, I devised my own setup that I thought was as natural as possible. I still use it to this day, but a lot of games have shitty option menus and it's sometimes hard to bind all the keys I need.

I use left mouse for backwards, right mouse for forwards and still S and D to strafe. I use other uncommon keys for other things like jumping. Overall, I find that my setup is better in many ways to what most people use. It's certainly more agile and offers easier access to more keys.

PC or nothing. No, I don't want to encourage this practice and buy a shitty console and have a sub-par experience. I'll just play my infinite list of good PC games I already have to play. If you like consoles, ok, but I don't.

Mods have been doing things like that for years, but I'm somewhat interested.

Yeah, and vanilla MC has had dungeons and temples and stuff, but it's always felt kinda half-assed. If they add fun ARPG gameplay into MC with a creative and robust dungeon generation engine, while keeping the building parts, that could be really cool. When my kids and I play together, we get bored of building sometimes. This could really spice it up.

This doesn't look like it has building. The Minecraft combat and controls don't really work well for an arpg game either. They could fix them, but honestly, Mojang is kinda incompetent. They've had so many years to add cool stuff and essentially did nothing. Modders have done a much, MUCH, ridiculously much better job of supporting the game.

Has no one else played Outlast. It freaked me the fuck out. Still haven't finished it.

I played 45 minutes and couldn't get into it so I stopped... I remember thinking it was more goofy than scary. I should probably give it another chance.

Edit: Alien Isolation is a way better horror game. Don't worry too much about finishing it though. It's way too long and drawn out. I was freaked the hell out when I played it, but didn't finish it.

I'm going to attempt to play all three STALKER games in October (and probably a bit of November).

Skip Clear Skies man. It's bad. Shadow of Chernobyl is pretty good, but I think you should go with mods because it was pretty broken. Call of Prypiat vanilla is great though.

Agree on Soma. The story is one of the best i have ever played, and that's counting Deus Ex, System Shock 1 & 2, Witcher 3.. Yeah the gameplay is not an intensive FPS shooter, but it's stressful enough. The various "bumps" in the story and the ending are really thought provoking, and terrifying. While Amnesia takes from classics of horror (namely Lovecraft), Soma is quite original.

Also do not miss the short series they published on Youtube around the game, they are *really* creepy and even more so after finishing the game because you understand them, which weirdly makes them even more terrifying... True masterpiece.

What's even more terrifying is that all that might happen one day. Go to the doctor one morning and wake up to something you can't even imagine.

Great game. It single-handedly brought back horror gaming from the dead. All of this dev's other games are great, even their older ones. They look like crap now, but they're still so fun. Soma, their latest game is an underrated gem. Best story in a game during that year, and Witcher 3 came out during that year

Can't wait to see what they do next.

If we allowed kids to use the honor system to verify their age we might as well start allowing it for the purchase of cigarettes and alcohol.

If you think that the ID requirement is stopping kids from drinking or smoking, you're wrong.

Amongst all the mature, intelligent adults I know porn most certainly does not have a negative stigma attached to it. The only people it has a negative stigma with are dumb religious kook types and hardcore feminazis. And there's no such thing as "porn" anymore. There's every kind of adult entertainment for every sort of taste under the sun now. Most people I know don't really care for the industry standard 'yeah baby' porn anyway. If you have a fetish for it, it's out there. There's nothing abnormal or wrong with it, it's just a different sort of kink.
You only live once, so get your freak on and enjoy it.


All the adults you know, huh? LOL. And you guys talk about porn regularly I'm guessing. Do you share masturbation secrets?

Keeping "porn" from bleeding into all other areas of life has nothing to do with religious beliefs. I don't want to see Penthouse magazine at the checkout stand everytime I buy groceries. There is a such thing as "porn". Your attempt to redefine reality for everyone else by thinking they'll feel ashamed if you throw out a couple of buzzwords like "religous nuts" isn't going to change the negative stigma of porn. I would be ashamed to openly discuss it with any intelligent beings in a public setting. Your words show you completely ignored the substance of my post anyway and "got off" (oops, heheh) on a tangent of "PLEASE, DON"T TAKE MY PORN!". We all get it Cutter. Your a big supporter of "porn". Good for you. I respect the unashamedness you have and you take-no prisoners stance of enjoying. So, enjoy!

What Cutter said was a bit flamey, but sharing masturbation secrets and talking about sex is nothing to be ashamed of. Why should you be? It can also be done in public settings, if done the right way. You can still live a normal life by repressing these thoughts and discussions though...
