News Comments > The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition
33. Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition Jun 13, 2016, 20:14 dumpy
 
Fallout 4 (PS4) lost my interest only a few hours in; the poor building UI and Preston was the nail in the coffin. Haven't touched it since. Most of the DLC looks pretty underwhelming as well, except for Far Harbour.

Due to my disappointment, I'm currently half-way through a New Vegas play-through (modded PC version of course), and have had the itch to replay Skyrim for quite some time. Nice to see Hearthfire paying for itself - the free upgrade is a very welcome addition.

Only 1 or 2 active servers with pings below 100 nearby. Usually playable late night during the week, or on the weekend. I don't understand why they separated Combat from the original release. I believe that had a detrimental effect on the community; preventing people who were sitting on the fence, from giving it a try, as it was (my understanding) the most popular gameplay mode from the original Half-Life mod.

Bit of a shame, I am always hopeful the original development team retaking the reins of development will breathe new life into it.

Not a preview at all. More of an assimilation of information already readily available.

I can't expect any further development on Beyond Earth? That's disappointing. I was looking forward to at least one more large add-on.

News Comments > Escape from Tarkov Trailer; Beta Signups

The previous gameplay posted on Blue was more loud, compared to the silent exploration in this video. They definitely present the game well in these presentations, though I am starting to wonder, does that cover up flaws? I haven't been able to see much so far, aside from at the beginning of this video, the character is unable to pick up the weapon from the ground, and has to reposition to do so. Still, it looks promising.

One of the main reasons why I stopped playing. The community where I live is mostly dead, save for 2 - 3 servers. So, too little, too late.

I can appreciate the critique, but this looks a little better than the current, or even past, fare. Leaning is always welcome, scope and/or ironsight is useful, and it has impressive lighting and texturing. I'm not fanatical in any way - this is the first I've heard of the game, and the first time I've seen it. But I reckon if they has included elements based on future technology, or a futuristic setting, I reckon this would be dismissed as a Black Ops ripoff.

Just don't expect the dialogue to be award-winning =)

I don't see how this could be appealing to new customers, let alone entice fans. People who have played Hitman games in the past, to my knowledge, have no interest in a multiplayer experience.

All they had to do was create a single player experience with almost impossible-to-complete missions. That's where the sense of achievement came from - being the 'silent assassin'; with the possibility to turn into a complete bloodbath.

News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront 3 PC Footage
24. Re: Star Wars Battlefront 3 PC Footage Jun 24, 2015, 18:46 dumpy
 
After a long hiatus from playing BF3, I returned only to find that my account had been hacked. I was able to clear my account up, change my name and language settings, and set new security measures. So I put down money on a Premium pack which was on sale only to find I had been banned for the precise reason for leaving in the first place; and I couldn't play on any server with a half-decent ping.

No help from EA or PunkBuster - pointing the finger at each other. I can't come up with the words to describe just how much I loathe them both.

Sad thing is that I know I'm not the only person with this problem - EA openly admitted to their players being wrongly banned.

I don't know why, but New Order's the whole future-Wolfenstein thing didn't do much for me. Old blood seems much more appealing, and hopfully the price will be too. Suppose I could wait for a boxed set with both New Order and Old Blood, but that probably won't happen.

23. Re: The Witcher 3 Patched Jun 5, 2015, 22:13 dumpy
 
The first and second games are very time consuming, and as people say, the combat definately needs improvement (though I did enjoy the combat in Assassins of Kings). Wild Hunt doesn't require you to have played the previous two games, though it can give you some perspective on King Radovid and Foltest. I'm currently trying to learn the alchemy ingredients by sight, and after I do that , I'll attempt to learn the bestiary by heart! =D

You're missing out on a LOT if you skip the dialogue. Personally, I've always found Geralt's mannerisms and tone hilarious (n.b. disdain).

Pre-order exclusives and Punkbuster are dealbreakers, and previous unstable releases doesn't play in their favour either. As much as I would like to play this, my intense hatred for the EA, DICE and Punkbuster takes precedence.

Though I have never played Stranger or Munch, I absolutely adored Oddysee and Exoddus. I think it was because the games didn't try to be something they were not. The art style was comical (i.e. 'Boom' machines) and the characters were just goofy. Great fun. I only have to wait until I buy my PS4 =D

Why? No one asked for this. No one knew they were doing it. It was an okay game; definately not a brilliant one. The "HD" still looks pretty shit also.

News Comments > The Elder Scrolls Online Dropping Subscriptions in March
33. Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Dropping Subscriptions in March Jan 21, 2015, 17:22 dumpy
 
Shouldn't the people who spent the money to buy the game, and then monthly subscriptions, be furious that they could have had the game for free all along? Or that the producer/publisher charged for what is essentially an open beta?

I bought GW2 a long time ago and only ever play it sporadically, mostly because I don't like the Pirates theme and I hate MMO hotkey combat. However I don't feel ripped off at all.

News Comments > Dying Light Videos
7. Re: Dying Light Videos Jan 9, 2015, 20:10 dumpy
 
I really like the level style, it looks like it is based somewhere in the Balkans, which is a refreshing change. The textures and particles look good, though youtube is a difficult source to base this observation on. I really like the emphasis on melee combat also, and the inclusion of guns does not appear tacked-on. I never played Dead Island, but I expect they look to recreate the success of that franchise while looking to improve upon it.

One thing to note about this video - the guys presenting the gameplay are SO FRUSTRATING TO WATCH. It may be intentional for demonstration purposes, but they constantly avoid kills, clearing areas, checking containers, picking up items and LOOKING AT POINTS OF INTEREST. I get the impression that they don't answer certain questions because they don't comprehend the value of the answer (e.g. Q: "Can you change the FOV?", A: "Yes, you can."). Even though I intend to play this on PS4, it is immediately obvious that this is a PC focused question, and that actually telling people what they can change the FOV to would be really nice.

Son, I am dissapoint. But why bother taking risks when you have your stockholders to worry about, right Activision?

Equally dissapointing as Battlecry and Shadow Realms.
