News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront II Progression Eased
21. Re: Death Threats now come in loot boxes!! only $9.99 Nov 14, 2017, 02:57 Slick
 
Yeah, it's pretty bad. Worse than I expected. It's not the end of the world, but it's not great.

At least they addressed the heroes thing, and they're right, Luke and Vader are sidegrades to the already unlocked Rey and Kylo. Chewbacca, Palpatine, and Leia are distinct heroes worth getting though, now at about 10 hours grind each.

The problem is that means you're not spending any credits on loot boxes, so all of the basic abilities remain unlocked for you.

It seems that getting scrap is the way to go, ie. getting the cheaper crates. you get I think 50 scrap per crate, maybe sometimes less. and basic abilities cost 40 scrap to unlock. so 4 rounds at 250-300 credits per round (about an hour of gameplay) should be enough to unlock each ability. But forget about upgrading them, as the cost gets alot worse.

I bought some packs, and I didn't really get shit. Seriously, so many green dupes. and dupes only give you credits back. so I'd maybe get 200 back on a 2000 cost crate. you don't get scrap for dupes.

At least most of the weapons are unlocked via progression (50 kills with class for the second gun, 3rd is loot crate, 4th is 500 kills)

But then you still need scrap or drops to get the mods for those weapons.

I mean it's grindy, it's not the end of the world, but it's not amazing.

News Comments > Videogame Voice Actor Strike Ends
7. Re: Videogame Voice Actor Strike Ends Nov 8, 2017, 15:46 Slick
 
Some games have really good voice acting. Some don't.

It's like most things with art, and life...

I really liked the acting in Infamous Second Son, even though the characters weren't my cup of tea, I felt that the direction and the acting was spot on to "bring me there", to "bring me the angst".

News Comments > Call of Duty: WWII's Big Launch
13. Re: etc. Nov 8, 2017, 14:49 Slick
 
I think the best CoD-Battlefield comparison I could make is the following:

People often say that BF2 was the height of the Battlefield franchise. I could offer many objective reasons why this isn't the case.

People also often say that CoD IV MW was the height of the CoD franchise. In this case I have trouble proving them wrong.

Both of these postulations hinge on the progress the devlopers have made over 10 years. In CoD's case, it feels like CoD WWII is getting closer to the original CoD formula, while BF games are closer to the original vision of what DICE wanted to achieve with their game, although the engine at the time could never support it.

Maybe it's just me, but one franchise seems to be genuinely looking towards the future, and the other is firmly stuck chasing the past. Seems like the biggest difference to me, and probably why I don't really care for CoD even if I enjoy a good 6v6 infantry romp.

Someone please find me a youtube clip of the multiplayer running animations. The characters just kind of float 2 inches above the ground doing some wacky 1920's chorus line dance thing that's hard to describe but absolutely immersion-breaking anytime I see a stream...

Fuck CoD.

They've had too many chances, and they keep coming back to their shit-ass Q3A-derived engine from 1999. Another half a billion dollars in a week eh? Think they can put 50 of that towards developing an engine that could compete with Frostbite? NAHHHHHHHH.

Didn't you say in another thread all of your judgments were based on the beta, and someone else clarified that the graphics and animations had improved significantly since then?

This is why companies loathe public betas.

As for other complaints, I don't get why people compare this to Battlefield. They're different games. I had a blast with the first three MW games, but have hated every Battlefield game I've played. MW games are running around killing people face to face in small squads, with small battlefields, getting fun toys unlocked for doing well. Battlefield is huge battlefields with tons of people and spending a lot of time getting sniped from god knows where, waiting for a vehicle to spawn, or running around trying to figure out where people are. Yes, you'll say I'm focusing on outdated negatives of the game, but there's no real reason to compare the two. They don't direct compete anymore because they're very different games with very different players.

Actually I didn't compare CoD to Battlefield in this thread (although I often do elsewhere). I was comparing CoD's shit ass Q3A-derived engine to Frostbite.

Also, as I stated above, and mentioned in another thread, I've been watching CoD streams, mostly on Twitch. And the ridiculous animations are still there. I feel like there should be Benny Hill - Yakity Sax playing in the background watching these WWII soldiers dancing around the 100ft x 100ft sized map.

I agree I wish ME:A had some post-launch support. Especially with the Xbox One X launching yesterday and it's STARVED for "launch" titles that are "enhanced". ME:A could definitely get some sales if they gave a shit.

Other developers claimed that it takes about 1-3 days to do an xboxox patch. That's probably BS, but still it can't be that hard, as it will mean new sales pretty much guaranteed.

lol, I' don't MT the shit out of anything (except the fucking South Park mobile game... UGH I feel so dirty but have spent like $150 on it).

But I did buy a "Wrench" figurine from Watch Dogs 2 to sit on my desk for $60, that was well worth it.

Also JD, I see your point with convenience for PvE as a distinction, I guess I'm just not phased personally if it's for PvP too.

I mean, there are always going to be little try-hards who blast through any progression waaaaay before me regardless if there's MTs or not. No matter what, I'm never going to be sitting alone ontop of Mt. Unlocks. So if I can make peace with 100,000 players getting there faster than me anyways, what's another 10,000 getting there buy buying the equivalent of XP boosts? I just really don't care that much.

None of that touches ACTUAL pay-2-win, which is always abhorrent.

...but do you hate that 1% who throws $10k at the game? Cause those people are bankrolling development for the rest of us. Not that our $60 doesn't count, but theirs counts a lot more.

Wouldn't you agree that if it's only cosmetic or convenience, then who really cares?

I think Cutter is the smartest person posting in this thread.

The end must be nigh... REPENT SINNERS!

I mean, I could go on for ages picking apart that ludicrous post by Christian McJesusey... but I think my time would be better spent just watching a HitchSlap compilation to ease the shakes.

ME:A wasn't shitty, it just wasn't very good. I think it landed a mid 70 score on Metacritic.

I enjoyed it about as much as I did ME:2 and ME:3 in that both of those I also didn't finish...

That's just Gamasutra's clickbait headline, the chart they took from Ubisoft's slideshow lists the various elements in small print. Ubisoft calls the category "Player Recurring Investment" and it includes everything that is not a digital game sale.

How was I lied to?

How do you feel lied to?

Did you think that choices you made across the game, which had consequences throughout the franchise, would necessarily culminate in multiple totally different endings? I seem to have missed that memo.

I'm not so arrogant that I think that my vision for what a game should be is the "right" one.

5 platforms, 2 generations, 1 very mechanically out-dated game...

Looking forward to RDR2, but Watch Dogs 2 is my go-to open-world silly-fest over GTAV.
