News Comments > Metro Exodus Announced
11. Re: Metro Exodus Announced Jun 12, 2017, 13:13 ItBurn
 
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!

News Comments > Anthem Gameplay Trailer
7. Re: Anthem Gameplay Trailer Jun 12, 2017, 12:53 ItBurn
 
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?

I like the idea of it, but I like games for the gameplay, so I'm not interested in this. I never liked all these 3rd person interactive movies.

After the massive disappointment that was Mighty No. 9 I feel that there is a lot riding on this game. If Ritual of the Night ends up a disappointment, it would pretty much be the end of the nostalgia-fueled kickstarter projects. People can only have so much faith when being screwed repeatedly. Unless you are a Star Citizen backer, in which case you'll just buy another $1000 ship that doesn't exist yet.

They already released a demo for Bloodstained. The demo is great and is exactly what we wanted. It's going to be hard for them to f it up. There's going to be a second demo for E3 by the way. Can't wait.

News Comments > Magic: The Gathering RPG Plans
16. Re: Magic: The Gathering RPG Plans Jun 7, 2017, 18:52 ItBurn
 
A long time ago there was a magic the gathering RPG where you would walk an overworld similar to Heroes of Might and Magic. You would collect cards, level up, enter dungeons, etc. The combat was done via the classic card game. It was pretty awesome I thought. I would be down for that. If they want to go the Skyrim/mmo route, like it seems that they want to, I'm not interested. I have zero interest in the Magic lore and I don't have faith in the gameplay that this studio can bring.

Really looking forward to this one.

Why??? There's already a ton of these games. They're so similar and there's no indication this one will be different...

The free edition doesn't include the coop missions, which is the only thing interesting about this game to me. Edit: Yes, you can purchase the story mode by grinding in-game credits, but I don't want to play the competitive multiplayer.

I think Steam made a mistake--should have gone to $500 minimum. IMO, if you can't afford that to get International exposure for your software, you can't afford to be a developer. Oh, well, they can always raise it again should this not prove enough of an incentive to keep out the crud...I'm sure it will help to some degree. It's too low, however--considering that whatever Steam charged would be fully refunded when the game begins to sell. I would like to see folks living at home on Mom and Dad & going to school priced out however--if you can't pony up $ knowing you can get it all back when you finish the game and it begins to sell, you can't afford to develop the game, imo. Way too much junk on Steam--just trash, really. Will be interesting to watch.

I put a game on Steam and $500 is more than what I made... So essentially Steam would have made money and I would have lost even more money than I should have. I think that what they did is great. I don't find that there's an actual problem with "fake" games or too many games and their algorithm will prevent that anyway.

As our CEO Yves said at the close of our E3 conference last year, “the real magic and innovation happens when teams and players are free to create, free to innovate, free to express themselves, free to take risks and have fun.”

Yeah, all the things Ubisoft doesn't do.

I don't think that's fair. Ubisoft is churning out a lot of new IPs and new types of games (as well as yearly clones).

In what universe is this happening because it sure ain't this one. Head has it right, copy and paste games are what they make. All their games are the exact same just with different settings. All their games are 80%-90% needless grindy filler. All of them.

There's been countless(edit: many...) examples throughout the years if you paid attention... What's the last one? For Honor. Unlike anything they've ever done, ever. Doesn't matter if it's good or not of if it's grindy. They could have put the teams working on the same existing franchises they had, but no, they took a risk, gave the devs a chance and released something totally new.

Who buys these? Im thinking kids, or rather their parents as I had a thing for Need For Speed, and Need for Speed 2 back when I was like 14-15 or whatever. (That's before I discovered true driving simulators).

The trailer looks awful and so generic, yet the likes are through the roof. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. It must be kids. Need for Speed was a team. That team isn't working on NFS. NFS is now a generic algorithm-produced cash hog.

I tried to get the Diablo 2 mod "eastern sun" working for like 8 hours. Bought legit game, didn't work. Tried all combinations of "alternative" versions, didn't work. I just gave up with D2 mods. I can play vanilla D2 no problem.

Yes, I'd rather have open world with actual missions/quests. Sadly, so far no ones been able to get that Elder Scrolls adventure 'wanderlust' yet in space.

Have you played Freelancer? Because that's what you're talking about.
I started it once, about 7 years ago. I got distracted by New Vegas and completely forgot about it. Thought I had it on GOG but doesn't seem available or on Steam. I must have it on disk around here somewhere. Any idea why it hasn't been listed on GOG yet?

That would require an effort by the devs for what I expect is probably not many gains. It could also be a problem with licenses, rights or ownership. Seems like Ebay is the only legit way to get a copy. Sucks.

If you're offended by this, you're ___. I think you can complete my sentence. To try to direct the discussion back to what this site is for, the game, I gotta say, this setting looks great and fits perfectly with the US and I like the characters so far! I hope it strays away at least a bit from the formula though, because there's no difference between 3 and 4 and I'm just not interested in more of that.

I'm gonna try that Blood demo. In other news, I just learned of a Java Blood port that requires the base game to run. It seems like a true port as it's almost exactly like the original game. No idea how he did it, but it's great. Link

Edit: Tried the demo. It's incredibly glitchy, unfinished, amateurish and unpolished. I think it's definitely possible to start from that base and make it amazing, but I'm not sure the dev(s) have the talent.

That UK article is the scariest thing. They're actually openly saying that they want to control what people say, think and look at... I guess it's true what they say about evil people not realizing they're evil.

So, who actually would vote for such a thing? "Hey I want the internet to become just another platform for me to tell you what *I* want you to hear, and absolutely nothing else."

People who would profit from it, and thus the government via lobbying. I mean, I don't know, I think it's insane, but laws pass and projects are started without the public vote. Even when the public manifests its discontent it's often ignored. Edit: I don't know about the UK, but it's like that in the US and Canada, so I expect UK would be like that too.
