I'd like to present you with this week's Most Confusing Reply Award.

Dude said nothing about DRM, and even if he had, your contention that DRM means a game "is essentially F2P" is nonsensical.

No it isn't, if a game is locked down to a back end server and you don't control it, you don't really control the game, you don't have the game in your hands, one part of the game that is needed for the game to work is taken hostage on the other side of the internet.

A game is just software, f2p games are a category label for just software that is broken into two pieces. Overwatch is a piece of software that is broken into two pieces.

They are the same in terms of the game code being split. To put it in words your little brain will understand: Imagine getting a console game where there are two DVD's but one is missing because the corporations didn't give you the whole game, they kept one DVD to themselves to make sure they control the game and the game code and you need to use your dvd and the login screen to login to their server to access the other parts of the game code.

So no you didn't "buy the game", because you and most gamers are computer illiterate. You bought a game that isn't yours and doesn't run entirely on your computer. You did something stupid.

How the hell do you not include Guile in the regular game?!?

Well gamers are so lenient and bent over for game companies that's pretty much why, the average gamer is so ignorant/stupid that companies can release unfinished games and people will buy it before its done. Stupid.

The changes from the previous beta are night and day. They did a great job on the character progression stuff, although seeing "Shop" next to the loot box concerns me since this game isn't F2P. I'm looking forward to the game.

Uhh it has always online drm in it. Any game that is chained to a back end server is not a game you own. So yes it is essentially f2p in terms of how the software is constructed, just that you were dumb enough to pay for it.

If anyone cares about bringing back WOW Legacy servers please join the legacy movement in boycotting Blizzard by not buying any of their products or subscribing to any of their servers. Also, if you could sign the
Nostalrius petition that would be swell. We're only 25k signatures away from 200k.

LOL you drm'd rpg paying idiots paid a subscription for a game you never owned who's sole purpose was to take control of the game away from you to extract maximum profit from you dunderheads and now you want to petition? Man the average gamer really is a moron.

Sorry to tell you, you and the rest of the drm game buying public taught the corporate world you are too stupid to know you're getting fleeced.

"MMO's" are a marketing term to cover up the fact that they are just drm'd rpg's where game is cut into client and server where they take part of the game hostage on the other side of the internet so they can charge dumb shits a subscription fee.

That petition is never going to work and you're not going to 'boycott' anything. The vast majority of game buying public have proven over and over they are comically stupid.

This whole board can hate... ports, AAA's, Indies, VR, 3D TV, whatever. That won't change my mind unless they really were able to point out something that I'm missing that is really tangible as to why I should not like something.

No one should want too much group think in gaming, often times negative reviews are the most insightful. If people have nothing to complain about ever then its highly likely that those people are not very bright and will buy shit in a box.

Without criticism games cannot advance, period. More often then not noticing things missing a game got wrong is much more important then what a game got right.

Looks like they unleashed the wrong kind of demons this time.

Those steam reviews, fair and balanced. They probably have their finger poised over the delete button.

It would be fun to see the breakdown on pre-order stats for this game.

I have a feeling it will still sell anyway because most gamers are stupid and a sizeable chunk of the original generation will buy it because they will buy anything. The same people who fed steam/mmo/always online drm bullshit.

People are mostly bashing it due to the fact that it's not what they expected it to be

People are bashing it because it's consolized bullshit, when you release a game in the tradition of original doom with art aesthetics derived from the original first two games you better pony up on the rest. The two weapon carry limit is totally NOT doom what so ever. Many of the weapons are massively underpowered. The best two weapons IIRC are the sniper rifle and the rocket launcher, everything else is mostly balls. You want to get the super weapons on the map like the demon rune and the other gun I forget it's name. Everything else takes too many hits. The super shotgun is basically too weak to use in a real game.

The new doom is everything the original wasn't. The limited weapon carry and starting with weapon loadouts is big no no when doom/quake were about fighting for weapon/ammo/health/armor spawns.

There's a ton of unrealistic fps on the market... Not sure why you like this game so much. It's so generic and bland.

Because there is a new generation of gaming morons born every minute who never played any games before the year 2000. There is the dumb half of our generation that seems intellectually backward and always rationalizes the game industries mediocrity.

FPS games were played out by the time UT2003/Quake3 came around, we'd already had umpteen many fps games with blood/duke/shadow warrior/etc during that time in the 90's. There was an avalanche of fps games that just never stopped.

Basically multiplayer FPS games peaked on PC with UT2004, the modern gamer is such a fucking idiot chimp it's disturbing that very few people have memories of rocket arena, or threewave and mindlessly lap up what modern game companies feed them. For those of us who remember the good old days on modems and kali/kahn IPX emulation for warcraft 2/Descent, you're not going to convince the dumb retard half of our generation.

Is it theft? Well, they are profiting off of someone else's intellectual property...so yes.

LOL corporations are the original thieves of our intellectual property by framing and passing bullshit laws so that you never 'own' the software and source code outright but "license" it, its a giant con for cultural works like games. Software licensing law was made by corporate giants without input of the public and since the public is stupid, tech illiterate and generally moronic, their rights to own their own shit has been long since stolen. Why can't we repair, fix and own old games, get access to the source, etc? It's written right in the US constitution that Copyright/IP law is a monopoly and is supposed to be limited. Corporations bought off the law to such an extreme degree and the average american is so ignorant of history, most people are blind to how corrupt their society is.

Ummm...come again?

Daikatana was a result of romero's bad work ethic and general incompetence at managing game development team back then. That's why people who knew him had issues with romero. That's why romero never released any other game under his name and only dabbled in shitty territory.

Can someone explain to me the backstory behind the "John Romero will make you his bitch" comment?

Basically romero and company were bragging they were going to make an awesome game. The "make you his bitch" comment was basically bragging up front before the game had been even made. But the game (daikatana) ended up being on of the biggest game development disasters in gaming history. This is why romero is looked down at by the older generation of gamers.

Also his former co-workers post not so nice things about his lazyness when doom became a success. Carmack and everyone got really rich off doom and once the money came in romero started slacking off because there was no compelling reason to work anymore. AKA he's the type that can only work when forced to and given no options. Carmack and others on the other hand aren't so effected by getting rich, carmack worked on a huge lot of other games even if they were sequels outside of doom. Romero not so much. Carmack and company were pushing 3D video cards forward with quake derived tech.

Came to see assclowns whiteknighting Steam. Left satisfied.

What a cop out. If you have an opinion then voice it otherwise you're just a troll.

The reality is the new generation of gamers/game developers are at retard level, they are going to basically lock down games forever, the masses because they are tech illiterate, newer generations of devs because they don't want to give away control to the game to gamers. AKA limited modding, massive drm, more encryption/denuvo, sandboxing.

The success of "MMO's" (aka the first real drm'd games you nevered owned) rode on the tech dumbness of a generation of gamers who are ok with paying for getting fucked. World of warcraft/everquest sealed the deal, diablo 3, starcraft 2, and The recent release of the division are signs that the end is night. The average gamer buyer is fucking retarded tech illiterate/irrational moron.

MattyC wrote on Apr 14, 2016, 13:49:
Was it the draw system? If so, I can completely understand.

The flow of the battles in 8 were pretty shitty and that stupid auto-leveling of enemies. All around by the time FF8 came around the combat system of final fantasy had calcified, basically square is out of ideas when it comes to combat. The best rpg combat system I've seen out of square is final fantasy tactics.

It really comes down to not understanding why combat is boring and not a slog, the whole idea of leveling up/gaining power loot needs to be well designed and participating in battle needs to be interesting, not just going through the motions. A big problem with oldschool RPG's is that weaknesses in the turn based battle system ultimately make the game feel like a drag.

I remember loving grinding monsters in FF1, the point is to make 'grinding' fun and add things besides just combat to the game for the player to do. FF8's best feature was in fact that card game, that the card game was more fun then the main game goes to show how far gaming has gotten away from its roots of just being systems of game mechanics, and instead focusing on story/simulating worlds.

The real issue for me is the fact that the worlds in jrpg's are mostly dead and non interactive, there's no reason to explore or interact with anything.

Well maybe your privacy means nothing to you but it means a lot to some of us.

That game was over a long time ago when people forked out money for MMO's and steam. This gave rise to F2P/always online DRM. Diablo 3 sold 30 million copies. EA just released need for speed with always online drm in it. Almost all AAA games have some form of gangrene crapware either steam or drm related software, only a tiny minority of big budget games don't.

Sad to say it the newer generation is pushing us oldies out since they never grew up on PC gaming in the 90's they don't know what has come before and gullibly eat up whatever companies feed them. Think about Gabe and the valve skyrim paid mods controversy. These fuckers only care about $. What do you think league of legends represents? IT's the biggest fucking scam in all of gaming yet its popular and making mad money. That says the vast majority of people on our planet are tech illiterate morons.

If you paid for skins in that game you don't own, you are a bonafide moron.

Damn I just bought a 980ti. Should I retun it? Although so far it is freaking amazing!

No, the FPS gains won't be that much. Learn about size limits to transistors, processor power has slowed down dramatically since 2006 since it's becoming more costly to shrink transistors and make chips smaller. So that means there is less performance to squeeze out. You'll be set for 4 years at least with a 980. Hell my old 5870 still runs 99% of modern games.

Man...I really wanna pick this up and like it. So much cool looking about it. Then I read real player reviews and it sounds fairly dry to the bone and unfinished.

Who to believe...

Depends, did you think supreme commander 1 was good or bad? I thought supcom 1 was badly designed in that that the units were just hp boxes to hit towards death. Also units lose value/become redundant depending on what map size you are playing on. On big maps you pretty much always go air. The rules of environment (goals on the map/gameboard) and rules during gameplay need a big shake up. I've got notebooks filled with ideas that no one has used over 20 years of RTS's.

I usually go with the negative reviews because they are usually from experienced players. It's too easy to game reviews on the internet for cash. For instance, I thought Twilights princess was pretty bad compared to say darksiders and Zelda games have been getting long in the tooth.

When looking at game reviews, think of the age and era the person is reviewing from. Someone that was born post-2000 isn't going to have a very good grasp on what makes a game quality because that person hasn't played all the games previously.

It's a shame the launch has been so shaky because they nailed the fighting mechanics. (IMO anyway)

Not a shame, no one should be buying an unfinished game based on company promises. The gaming community never learns. Companies want to give you the least viable product for the most money and hope to string you along promising things that will never materialize or will never be built to what was promised.
