This looks interesting, though I also don't see why they should molest an established IP. The canceled Prey 2 videos looked good, though now this is meant to be Prey.

It doesn't matter how good this is, it's a completely different game. It's like making a new Thief game as a shooter with "headshots" and damage numbers popping up.

Just go make a new IP for heavens sake, stop listening to the idiots in marketing when it comes to this.

Welcome to Bioshock in space.

System Shock. Bioshock being System Shock under water instead of in space seems very odd to say Bioshock in space.

The gameplay of Bioshock is different enough from System Shock for Prey to be more like Bioshock. But yeah, it's a System Shock look though.

It looks ok... It definitely looks like Bioshock in space, which is not something good in my book. I'm willing to give it a chance. One thing really annoys me though: it has nothing to do with Prey. Not sure I want to support this kind of brand r4pe.

Actually, its not any form of brand r4pe at all. At first I thought why the hell is this even called Prey it has nothing to do with the original AT ALL.

Then I saw this...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VeMnngn2UM

It seems to me now that they are using the title Prey as in the human race is prey for this alien force.


I didn't look at your video, but whatever the reason, this is Prey now. The original Prey franchise is basically dead. I don't like that. They could have called it anything else. It's just because they wanted the name recognition to bring in extra bucks. They don't care about a franchise that fans care about. To me that's bad. I mean, I don't care all that much. I wasn't a huge Prey fan, but I've seen this over and over since the beginning of gaming and I'm tired of all these franchises dying for the sake of a bit of cash.

News Comments > Grim Dawn Crucible Mode DLC Released
6. Re: Grim Dawn Crucible Mode DLC Released Aug 4, 2016, 10:27 ItBurn
 
I like this one better than Path of Exile, but not by much. The combat is definitely better, since it has a physics engine, but it's nowhere near as good as D3. Its systems are a bit simpler than in PoE I found. At least, they were easier to understand by me which was a plus. I like that Grim has skill trees that you need to commit to, and in this, for me, it's better than D3 and PoE.

D3 is still the "funnest" game though... There's a monotony and blandness to Grim and PoE and their stories are presented in a way that makes them uninteresting and I just ended up giving up and skipping all the text. I'm not a hardcore action RPG guy though. I find the end game grinding absolutely uninteresting.

Edit: Forgot to add: There's some pretty bad bugs in there. I was playing coop with my brother and the quests on his character got corrupted. He lost them and there's no way to get them back. Now we can't play together and have to start over... It's a known issue with no fix. Also, the game menu is an abomination.

I was pleasantly surprised at how fun DOOM's campaign was. I have no interest in the multiplayer, so any DLC they intend to sell me needs to have single player content. To be vague, the story clearly implies there's more coming, so I think there'll likely be one expensive SP DLC down the road.

Zero interest in the MP, of course, but I'm down for more SP. What I really want though is better modding support. I really want to make a cool gameplay modification, but I can't with this limited console modding lego editor snappysnapper.

how many on uPlay are not from Ubisoft?

Uplay actually has games from several other developers, example
Same with Origin: R6
I know Valve used to sell games on other platforms too. Dunno what happened.

Hacking is a cost of having the great open platform that is PC gaming. We already have consoles. If that's what you want, go play on those instead! I'm not ready to sacrifice all the advantages like modding and fan patches just so that I don't meet a hacker from time to time.

Slick already talked about this. If you don't agree with his comments, refute them. Don't repeat what he's already responded too, you're just taking the conversation round in a circle.

What a strange thing to say on a forum on the internet... I'm not sure what you're saying. Slick wants console security, I told him to play on console. I didn't see someone state my opinion yet. I didn't read all the posts in the entire thread though, because there's too many and they're too long, and I don't think that that's required to be able to respond.

But that does absolutely nothing to discount the irony that the most secure platforms to have a clean competitive match today is on fucking consoles.
Maybe people should wise up a little and stop trying to have serious competitive scenes online. Serious mode used to mean a LAN party. Pretty hard to get away with this shit if a guy can watch over your shoulder.

It's 2016, and your solution is "LAN party".

Jesus christ.

I gotta say though.. "Maybe people should wise up a little and stop trying to have serious competitive scenes online." is itching to be my new sig. It's not quite as asinine as my current one, but it's damn close.

Like I said, hacking through software is %100 not happening on consoles right now, the hundreds of millions of console gamers that play hacker-free matches 24 hours a day. And your security measure for the PC is "have a guy look over your shoulder".

Jesus christ.

Do you like complex mods, total conversions, mods for games without mod tools and fan patches? If so, then you should be against UWP.

This isn't a conspiracy theory. Microsoft wants a closed platform. They want all the money and the death of their competition.

You mean like Valve? For which having Steam as quasi monopoly wasn't enough so they wanted to take over the whole PC game world with their SteamOS.

Steam isn't an app store. In fact, it supports tons of platforms. There's also alternatives to Steam. You can even buy steam keys from other sources than Steam. It's not the same thing at all. I don't think that you understand the limitations of UWP.

They're been trying to do this for a long time and now they're actually taking serious steps towards it with Windows 10 and UWP. All of this is bad for the consumer. I'm strongly against all of this too, especially the UWP.

Maybe one day Steam OS(linux) will be the OS for gaming?

I'm a bit bummed about multiplayer. I don't feel like this will be a positive. Unless it's some kind of differed multiplayer. I'd rather he add more to the base game. There's a lot to be improved too. Still, amazing game.

What's bad about pokemon "hunters"? They're doing exercise and getting some vitamin D. The game is very simple, but that doesn't make it a bad thing.

You would think that if a dev was offering a steam key that it would be on the up and up and through Steam.
Is this the developers fault?
The article does a poor job of explaining what happened.

or the scumbags themselves are filing illegitimate chargebacks and small indie studio simply cannot handle the workload involved with disputing them all. A bank will give their customer the benefit of the doubt if the merchant in question does not respond in time to a chargeback

If this is true and developers are aware of the risks involved it comes back around to being the developers fault for not handling their side of the business properly.

Sure, when it's a big developer, but smaller indies simply don't have the time and ressources to do that kind of stuff. Also, awareness of this fraud is somewhat new and few people know about it.

Edit: also, it happened to Ubisoft and they dealt with it like you said. They deactivated the keys. The public complained so hard that they had to give away the keys for free. They were basically robbed.

Hey apathetic devs and publishers... stop it. Even Microsoft gets it now. We dont want another launcher. Just put it on steam or sell it on gog.com.

Just knock it the hell off.

Easy for us to say, but Steam charges quite a fee to sell your game, when you are big enough why would one simply surrender such revenue? I get our side of it, but I get their side as well.

Yeah, you can't blame them, but it's actually also good for us. Competition is good for consumers.

I'm not convinced competition is that good - just look at sports in the UK. I used to be able to watch football for the price of my TV License. Now, if I want to watch it I need a TV License, Sky Sports Subscription, BT Sports Subscription and pay for EuroSports too ... I missed the part where it was an improvement!

I have no idea what you're talking about, but since you need all of these different things to watch one sport, it seems different. With gaming, you need only one of the many platforms to play one game.
