This is my most anticipated game since Skyrim. That's kinda sad. Gaming isn't what it used to be.

I have this on Humble or somewhere, but picked it up on Steam because, free.

How do the Penumbra games stack up?

They're fun. More puzzle than horror, but still pretty scary. Graphics did NOT age well though Third Penumbra game is actually more like Portal.

I dare say that Amnesia is the best horror game ever. It achieves the constant horror without the need for constant jump scares. No other game has scared me like that. The new Alien game came close, but I prefer the gameplay and pacing of Amnesia. Amnesia is the father of all modern horror games.

Their PC UIs are the WORST in the business though. Impressively bad. It really detracts from the experience.

Insane hyperbole. There are many much shittier ports as far as UI is concerned with no mousewheel support and only two working mouse buttons, and UIs that are laggy, clunky and so on.
Bethesda's UIs usually "only" have scaling issues and are a little too large for high res PC screens but the usability overall is still pretty good.
I'd like them to try harder as much as the next guy but it's definitely by far not "WORST in the business" by any stretch of the imagination.

I highly disagree. Have you played Skyrim or Fallout 3/NV on PC? What a nightmare. Maybe you forgot you were using the UI mod?

Will require SSD for those "entering tiny hut/exiting tiny hut" loading screens.
Witcher 3 did a hell of a good job of killing the whole "entering/exiting" cells bit, sadly it can be done with the engine in Skyrim with no problems already especially with cities. Can't be done on consoles, since they still have a massive memory problem.

Don't you just love those clowns?

Parading in 2005 that HD was the future, 1080p is here to stay. A decade later and an entire generation of machines afterwards, these goofballs still can barely do 1080p without having to drop the framerate down to 30fps. Meanwhile, keeping PC games held back because devs couldn't be bothered to put an honest effort into making a half-decent port.

I agree. Witcher 3 didn't have an open world though. It just had a couple of really big cells.

It'll run on an Xbone, which is a hilariously underpowered piece of shit. So I'm fairly sure that most marginally decent PCs will be able to play it.

And since when has Bethsoft ever done anything for the PC crowd since they went console first? Optimization of any sort? Better graphics? Better UI? Nope. Nope. Nope.

Uh, all of their games look better on PC and have PC-exclusive video settings. They also have dedicated mod tools which is a rarity among multiplatform games. Granted, it would be nice to have a dedicated PC UI but even without that, claiming that Bethesda doesn't put any effort into their PC ports is pretty unfounded.

In Skyrim, they released an ultra-high quality texture pack just for PC. Their ports are usually fairly solid too(as solid as a Beth game can be...) Their PC UIs are the WORST in the business though. Impressively bad. It really detracts from the experience.

They need 4-6 months to unlock the framerate? Incompetent much?

No, they are afraid poor PC reviews will hurt sales of the console versions, so they are trying to put some distance between them.
Expect EA to release the same crappy PC port in a few months.

Words of wisdom from a longtime PC gamer: If you want to play a console game, buy a console.

I prefer the vote with my wallet solution where I don't encourage companies that make bad ports.

I would rather they drop the story altogether.

Why? HL1 had an awesome story. HL2 wasn't that great but it was still pretty good. Im not really sure what you're on about...maybe you got it confused with Doom?

I don't mean remove all story. I just mean, drop the current HL2 storyline. I didn't like the way characters and the story was done in HL2. It was better in HL1.

There's no way this is a good game. I also refuse to play if either of these 3 things are in the game:
- Nitros that straighten or improve control of your car
- No manual transmission
- Races that start with you already speeding.

I would rather they drop the story altogether. Half-Life should be about dropping you into an alien setting where you're alone and figuring out what is happening for yourself. It's not about characters, dialogue, relationships and being the hero of the resistance. Half-Life 2 was a good game mechanically, but to me it wasn't anywhere as good as the first game in all other respects. ND would go all out in the wrong direction I think.

I know alot of you like Naughty Dog's games, but I wouldn't want them handling HL3. Their style of game absolutely doesn't fit with HL. I'm not a fan of their interactive movies.

I really liked it. It's better than Dear Esther, but Gone Home is way better. I'm not sure how I feel about the story, but it's a BEAUTIFUL game. If this version looks better, it must be crazy beautiful.

I have a feeling this won't be as well-received as Amnesia. Apparently many of the controversial design choices in A Machine For Pigs were mandated by Frictional, not The Chinese Room. From what I understand, SOMA (like AMFP) is focused more on psychological horror than outright terror. I'm perfectly okay with that (I enjoyed AMFP) but I think many people will want to be scared rather than disturbed.

I agree.

Also, I refuse to watch any media of it before it releases... I trust Frictional.

So, I don't like this game. I don't hate it, but it's just meh. My biggest gripe is dying. You lose your cash, sometimes in infuriating ways. This is an extra penalty for dying and it's unnecessary. Sometimes it dangles your cash over impossible to reach obstacles, taunting you. The gameplay itself is also meh. I don't like how the guy moves and attacks, probably because I've played a lot of better platformers. The collisions don't really make sense either sometimes. I don't get why people like this game so much. I guess it's worth 5-10$. 6.5/10

You're talking about Dark Souls, right?

Also - git gud, scrub.

hehe.

I pretty much 100%ed all Megaman Zero games. If you want hard platformers, try these. The controls and everything are sooo much better than in Shovel. Also, dying in MMZ isn't as frustrating. Sure, you have a specific amount of lives, but at least if you finish, you feel like you actually finished. If you finish a level in Shovel after dying a couple of times, you feel like you lost valuable gold that you can never get back. You feel bad about succeeding... Terrible design. But that's just me

How does this compare to Rogue Legacy? I don't really like platformers, but I do like Rogue legacy.

Well they're very different games.

Shovel is only a platformer. It has a bunch of static levels that you do somewhat in succession. It doesn't really have stats or loot and it has almost no customization. The gameplay is more akin to an old nintendo game.

Rogue Legacy is a rogue-like first and foremost, with a lot of stats, loot and customization. The castle is completely random. It has less variety and the platforming itself is more modern and more forgiving.

I liked Rogue Legacy a whole lot more and I'd say they're too different to compare.

If you liked Rogue Legacy, I suggest that you try any of the 2D Castlevanias starting from Symphony of the night. So, Symphony of the night on ps1/psp and all the others are on GBA and DS. They're simply the best games of that type. Huge castles, lots of stats and loot. They're not rogue-like, but everything else is so similar. Sadly, no other games have quite scratched that itch for me. The next big thing is Bloodstained, from the creator of all the Castlevania games.

Sure, but these 2 guys specifically said that they would rather play on a PS4 or XBone. They could instead just plug their PC on a tv and use a gamepad and have all the PC advantages, but that's another story.

For some people the logistics of that setup don't work for various reasons. Game streaming over wi-fi is far from reliable. Many people can't hardwire their living room. Some people live in apartments where radio spectrum is crowded which can impact streaming and so local console style play is preferred. The Steam Link isn't exactly in wide distribution yet even if it was an option. Many people don't have HTPCs.

Should I keep going? There are a myriad of reasons why someone doesn't just do that or prefers a console setup. I hardwired my living room to accommodate game streaming for my HTPC. Despite that I still own consoles because they have exclusives, some games are better integrated into their online platforms and so on. It's not one size fits all.

Ok sure, but my questions still stands These two guys want to play on their couch and on a console. This is by and large a PC site. I'm just curious :p
