I'm currently playing daggerfall. I wouldn't say the modern games are dumbed down, the complexity is just in different places. They have NEVER been very complex RPGs. I just played through and finished the first one Arena, and even that one had some things that were taken out of Daggerfall, as well as having somethings added in the next game. It's always evolving.

The UI has also never been great. The PC UI on Daggerfall is one of the worst I've ever seen. When interfacing with a store or your wagon, you have a single column of unsorted items that is only 4 items long to scroll through. It's way worse than looking through items in Skyrim. I think the bug count and the UI has actually improved after that.

Bethesda games aren't super complex elite RPG's like other PC classics (ultima, wizardry, gold box etc). Since the beginning, they've been accessible open worlds that are fun to mess around in and not take too seriously. When the first game came out, rpg players of the time criticized it for how dumbed down it was compared to other games!

I replayed Daggerfall last month. You didn't play the same Daggerfall that I did! It's tough to compare Daggerfall to the other rpgs you named, but it's at least as complex and I would say more. Agree about the interface though. Fallout 4 has the same shitty interface when dealing with containers.

I'm pretty sure I'm playing the same one! It has the illusion of depth (a great illusion). But it boils down to essentially the same "collect random quest-clear random dungeon" cycle that arena followed. Most of the game systems are fairly underdeveloped. It's a great illusion, and the amount of "stuff" in there is really high, but all the "stuff" looks and feels the same. It also makes sense that in later games, as the types of "stuff" become more differentiated and unique, that the amount and scope necessarily decreases.

Daggerfall is a lot more than just quests. There's a ton of systems working at the same time. Sure, the areas are not as unique as Fallout 4 and it doesn't have a physics engine, but what it has is a lot of underlying complexity that made the game feel more dynamic and reactive rather than scripted and strict like Fallout 4.

Also, some of the quests in Daggerfall were randomly generated. You'd do a part of it and then it could branch into a number of parts that could branch into others. You even had multiple ways of finishing them and branching paths according to your choice.

I'm not saying Daggerfall is a perfect game(edit: it's also incredibly broken). I'm just saying that I want more Daggerfall into my Bethesda games rather than more Farcry into them.

Bethesda's games are being dumbed down because they went from pretty complex RPGs with a lot of features and choices to something closer to an open world shooter. Yes, they added the crafting in Fallout 4, but it doesn't offset everything that happened since Daggerfall.

I do think that they dumb them down because of consoles. They get more sales on consoles and they also dumb the game down to reach more casuals, who are all on console. The PC is still a very "elite" platform in my opinion.

I'm giving him credit, I said he's good at his job. I still love Bethesda's games and they're my favorite developer. I still can imagine better though.

As for the junk everywhere, I love it. You pay so much more attention to places you explore. Everything is so useful. After more than 50 hours, I still don't find that it's a chore to pick everything up. You can class some junk as precious, so that you see an icon when you mouse over them. Picking things up is also super fast and easy.

Things that are absolutely disastrous: The dialogue options, the interface, the choices and the amount of ways to finish quests.

I find it ironic that he claims that they didn't need to change to bring the games to console. Their games are getting more and more dumbed down. He's really good at making the console centric Oblivion type of game, but he's closed to real change. He's a good producer, he's about money first, but I can imagine what their team could have been capable of and it makes me sad that we'll never see those games.

My favorite FF ever! Unfortunately I've already played it so much that I don't think I could bring myself to do another run-through; there's just not that much character customization. Still, if you're nostalgic for JRPGs and never got around to trying FF6 then go for it!

I still listen to the orchestral versions of the music on a fairly regular basis. Some of Uematsu's best work IMO.

EDIT: Listen to Dancing Mad for example.

You know what? I've listened to dozens of remixes of that song and the best one is still the original. It was designed for the SNES sound chip. The music in that game is great overall. It's also the only FF game I like. But like you, there's no way I can bring myself to play it again.

VendettaOnline is such a better game. Not prettier or well-known, but better playing and more rewarding, gameplay-wise. Plus, it's pretty easy for newbies with a Freelancer fetish...

Note however, that if you play on iOS, it's not 'free'. This is a contention I have with the VO devs. They say 'free' on their site but when you go to get the mobile app (the whole game on mobile, just as on PC), you find it's $0.99 for a trial and then it's either $1 or $9 per month (depending on who you ask). I haven't personally gotten the iOS version of VO for this very reason, it's not clear what the 'free' in 'free' constitutes. The PC version is a free 8 hour trial and then $9.99 per month. The only issue with that is there is no way of earning that in game like EVE. Still, the game is really good and I highly recommend it!

=-Rigs-=

I absolutely love Freelancer and spent a lot of time with budies in the multiplayer. I don't know about Vendetta... The reviews are pretty damn bad and the game also looks bad, not just graphically... Why do you think it's good?

No way this is intentional. Mods are probably the main reason why Bethesda's games are so popular nowadays. If I was forced to find a reason why they'd block the current mods, it would be because they're not possible on consoles. These mods aren't made with the editor(which isn't available yet) and would be impossible to do on a console. Maybe Beth wouldn't want console gamers to feel left out...

I'm not saying that I don't love mods and mod support, but maybe you should try talking to actual game developers before making statements like: "So and so's game is successful because of mod support."

The fact is that many more people play Fallout and TES games un-modded than they do modded.

It's just my opinion. Also, devs, and even marketing, often have no idea. They think they do though. Nothing makes people look at videos of a game like mods. You'll see top rated videos about Skyrim for years because there's always this new hilarious mod. This generates continued interest and sales long after the game is released. And that's just what I think is the main reason mods are the most important; there are others.

Console gamers also watch Youtube.

The creation kit (or w/e it'll be called) isn't out yet, right? I would assume most mods are basically kludgey mini-hacks to begin with at this point anyways.

If they announce they're not releasing the editor then it's time to wtf.

Pretty much all the best mods for Skyrim used "kludgey mini-hacks". If they're not supported anymore, it would be a pretty big deal.

News Comments > Shadow Complex Remastered for Free
19. Re: Shadow Complex Remastered for Free Dec 4, 2015, 21:58 ItBurn
 
So I'm downloading Shadow Complex. The way the Unreal launcher works, you already see a tab for all of their games, so you don't really have a library and you don't actually add the game or anything. You just install it... The way it seems to be advertised, I think that you might lose access to the game after the holidays... Kinda undermines the free thing and gives a bad rep to the launcher. But we'll see...

Despite them saying it's all seamless, there's nothing in here that shows that it's seamless, and I remain very skeptical about that claim.

Also, dear God, what kind of computer will you need to run this decently?

If you'd follow the game a bit more closely, you'd have seen a lot of videos showing the seamless transitions. And I meant a bit, because I don't really follow it, but I've seen lots of vids.

You'll need a pretty good computer. This is part of the goal of the game, to make something that actually pushes PC hardware. It's not releasing soon, so don't worry too much about it.

If you've never played the Brutal Doom mod for Doom, I can understand that you'd think that the new Doom trailer looked good. For someone that has played Brutal Doom, I can tell you that the new Doom looks meh... It's wayyyy too slow and the killing is unsatisfying because of all the repetitive executions that constantly pause the action. Also, the guns sound pretty bad, especially the plasma gun, what the hell. Play Brutal Doom right now, it's one of the best shooters on the market at the moment. It reminded me what actual level design looked like.
Brutal Doom is a mod predicated entirely on nostalgia - it's not a worthwhile game in its own right, let alone 'one of the best shooters on the market'. You're talking shit mate. To call the new Doom 'too slow' is laughable when it's one of the most fast-paced shooters we've seen recently. I mean, seriously - go back and watch a few videos of Doom 1 or 2, they're not any faster paced.

Personally I think the new Doom is exactly what the franchise needs and I say that as someone who played the originals extensively when they came out and Wolfenstein 3D before them. You're free to disagree but don't insult us by bringing Brutal Doom into the discussion.

Nah, I stand by my claim. Brutal Doom is one of the best shooters on the market at the moment. Is it the best looking? Is it AAA? Hell no. I play a lot of shooters and I did re-watch and re-watch again the new Doom trailer. I don't see in what world the new doom could be called "one of the most fast-paced". And I'm not talking about the original Doom games, I'm talking about Brutal Doom specifically. I'm not saying you can't disagree either, but don't insult me by saying that I'm insulting "us". What do you have against Brutal Doom?

Here's a video comparison of Brutal Doom vs the new Doom. Fast paced, really? comparison (I don't necessarily agree with everything in this video or what the poster says.)

you do know these companies are trying to make money right? they arent doing this for fun, or nostalgia... just because "you" dont want to buy it, doesnt mean shit.. theres a ton of kids who have never heard of emulators who WILL buy it

in case you are still wondering why.. its really very easy to figure out when you get over yourself... but until that happens, everything is so confusing im sure

Someone is using the TV in the living room while you are in the den. You can still play a game you want (from a console in the living room) while sitting on a different platform. As opposed to buying a second PS4 or etc.

It makes perfect sense.

Ok, I see. That's just not something that would ever happen to me.
