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.

This game isn't for everyone, though it seems that most people like it. I hated it. I thought it was glitchy, but the real problem was the story, characters and choices. I was constantly pissed off that I was forced into the stupidest ideas ever. I couldn't relate to anything. Maybe I just don't have the teenage schoolgirl genes. I thought it was just bad writing. I played it with my girlfriend, who you hope could relate more, but she hated it even more than me, for the same reasons.

The problems with the game are very obvious and in my opinion, very solvable. If they need the public to tell them what to fix and how to fix it...

They call it a new game mode, but they didn't have a choice to add this mode. If they didn't, in duels, both players would pick a hero and one player might have an advantage because some heroes are counters for others. They're not hard counters, but still. That would make an uneven duel and that just doesn't work for competitive players and tournaments because skill should be what makes you win a game.

I've been watching this game and it's truly an Overwatch-lite. Heroes have different health levels, speeds and abilities. The shooting itself seems adequate though. The biggest negatives are that weapons and kills don't look and sound satisfying and the announcer voice is a joke.

Still no word on bots, which is the only thing that might make me interested in the game. Coop against bots.

Edit: Almost forgot the biggest fail! The game doesn't seem to have Dead-reckoning/interpolation code(what smooths player movement when there's lag). It might have some, but watch any game and you'll soon see instances where players teleport all over at the rate of their ping. It's insane that a modern multiplayer-focused game would have no dead-reckoning. Maybe there's some and it just turns off in some situations...

News Comments > Ubisoft Financials Reveal Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2

Farcry 1 is in my top 5 games of all time. Loved the multiplayer, the enemy AI, the stealth, the level design, the horror parts (yes, I liked the mutants. They added variety). It kinda felt like the first time I played Half-Life 1. FC2 is my second favorite Farcry game. While it was completely different from FC1, I liked the gun system, the game economy and the "wasteland" feeling of it. The second map was also mind blowing and both maps were really interesting to explore. FC3 was still good, but it was oversimplified, they broke the economy and it was kinda generic. 4 was basically a remake of 3, so, I liked that one even less (4's story is great though). Then you get Primal, which is the one I disliked the most. It was just bland and couldn't keep my attention. Didn't play FC Instincts, because console... Oh and Blood Dragon was good, but I found it repetitive and kinda boring in the end. I guess my ranking is: 1,2,3,4,BD,Primal. It doesn't bode well for FC5...

As for all the Crysis games, 1 and Warhead were good, but there's something lacking from them. I guess they're not enough of a "game". The levels are insanely beautiful though. Just a marvel to look at. Crysis 2 and 3 are complete garbage. Linear soulless consolized bore fest.

I love how people are always complaining about how most articles are bullshit, clickbait, crapola. Then one comes along that is anything but clickbait, with well thought out arguments, and even some serious references and people just go:

"What a load of bollocks!" Without even reading the article, beacuse it doesn't conform to their view or opinion.

Wonderful stuff really.

Listen, the title is "Why Video Games Cannot be "Lovecraftian.". Now, regardless of the content of the article, the title is clear and I think I have the right to say that this is BS even if I didn't read the whole article. If the article ends up saying the opposite, that games can actually be lovecraftian, then it's not my fault, it's their fault for doing a clickbait title. So that's why I felt comfortable giving my opinion.

I read it diagonally, but this article is BS. A game can absolutely be "lovecraftian". This guy probably can't see games for something other than Mario Bros. You can depict insanity and indescribable horror in a visual medium. There really haven't been good "lovecraftian" games yet though... I'd say that Amnesia and Soma are pretty close.

So those of us that have bandwidth caps get f'd in the end by not having a demo which could be less to download. Ooook. Here's a game I won't be buying then....

Well, in their defense, no one does a demo nowadays. They didn't take anything away from PC gamers and gave something to console gamers. It's not new content or anything, just a demo. I find it hard to complain.

Others have mentioned the great things about Morrowind but what hasn't been mentioned is the soundtrack. It was the first game that I can recall that seemed to have a matching musical motif for every single aspect of the game.

I still listen to it to this day when I am working on brain powered things because it's such a rich score.

Also had probably the best thunder storms in a game up to that point.
Loved listening to the soundtrack and then a storm rolls through.

Morrowind has pretty good weather effects and the sky was beautiful too. There was no delay on the lightning strike sound though, so thunderstorms weren't perfect. It would have been so much more atmospheric if they'd have done that. I actually asked the devs about that in one of their mirc Q and As before the game was released. Didn't change their implementation though.
