Looking forward to the new Darkzone 2.0 Love that you cant be attacked if you dont go Rogue. Its about time UBI!!!

Wait, what?

Is this real?

That would completely kill this game for me...

The whole thrill of going into the DZ was that you'd always be looking over your shoulder, that anyone could betray you. It offered a gameplay experience incomparable to almost any other.

If now it's just a high level grinding zone.. then who the fuck cares...

You just answered the question I was going to ask...who the hell doesn't have/hasn't played Black Flag yet? I thought everyone would have by now. BF is definitely the best of them. If you were ever going to only play one game in the series that would be the one to play. I prefer Ezio and the Italian Renaissance myself, but BF was the most fun and most like playing out a classic pirate film. Cruising around the Caribbean - especially if you're playing in the winter - is pretty damn sweet as well.

Am i reading this right? Cutter likes the Assassins Creed franchise from the well-renowned Ubisoft shit?

I must be dreaming a nightmare!

HOW DARE SOMEONE LIKE A GAME? DON'T THEY KNOW? DON'T THEY KNOOOWWWWWW??

I think I'm the only one that enjoyed Unity. I didn't finish it, but it seemed to have a more cohesive plot than Origins. Origins is pretty great, I'm i think halfway through the game, level 22.

Yeah, they pretty much doubled the credits you earn if you do well. Also, they made it so AFK farmers get 1 credit at the end of the match, so pretty much solved both problems.

Nice to see no one gives a flying fuck as it doesn't further the narrative that DICE is evil.

What great news, I really hope that this blows up the online numbers for World in Conflict. That is BY FAR the most fun RTS game I've ever played.

For people who don't know, it's an RTS game without any "building" or "economy". Also you play on teams of 4, you buy 4-8 units, then you just work with your team to take points against another team of 4. It's very dynamic, and still holds up visually.

I played it until the servers dried up, I really hope they'll fill out now, I it's been too long...

I'm just not going to believe that the cancelled one, was the good one. Just assume it was like the rest or worse.

From what I've read it sounded like there was a huge brain drain at Visceral after EA forced them to make the Battlefield Hardline cops vs robbers game, they didn't want to make it and it destroyed moral.

They ended up pouring too much time into making trailers and tech demos and couldn't get animation systems to work the way they wanted. It didn't sound like there was much sharing of code between Battlefront and the game Viscreal was working on.

DICE raised the bar for graphics extremely high with their photographic modeling in their latest games. If you aren't capable of adapting to the way assets need to be generated you might really struggle to keep your job.

I think Visceral bit off more than they could chew.

Frostbite is a bitch to work with, it's not like UE that is built from the ground-up to be user-friendly. Lots of EA studios had a hard time adapting.

Plus with the secretive nature of the code, they aren't letting enough people really come to grips with it. There's no way to "train" yourself to be good at working with it unless you already are working on a game that's using it.

So yeah, a bitch to work with, but without question the best engine on the market (ie. best looking vs best performance), nothing else comes close, and if they do it's only on one of these 2 areas.

Gunplay's good, but the endgame (and midgame) is just boring as fuck if you aren't playing with friends.

I set my party privacy to "open" and never once did random strangers just spawn during a mission I was doing. You have to set all of that up yourself, and you can assume that even if you know 50 people playing the game, none of them will have to do the exact mission you're about to embark on. So the friend will have to be nice and just re-do a mission they've already done, or you'll be playing most of the content in this game by yourself.

It wasn't like this in D1 on PS4, I don't know how they fucked it up on PC so badly.

OH and there's no fucking ALL chat, even in the social areas! WTF! You can't even get a pick-up group started if you wanted to by just talking to people.

It's okay though, the first paid DLC is out in a week, that will make sure that anyone who doesn't buy it is gimped with their gear, enjoy the grind!

"All post-launch content is cancer"

Wow. Ace contributor.

It is cancer. UT3 shipped with 8 modes, a couple dozen maps, no progression system, no season pass, no DLC, and no MTs. A year later, Epic released 15 more maps free.

That's how it's done.

You make no sense.

You just said they released 15 maps a year later.

But you double-down that "all post-launch content is cancer"

Make up your mind!

Words have meanings you know.

All of this mess would have been avoided entirely if they just waited 2 months after launch to open the paid shop.

You know, just like BF1 did, BF4, and BF3. And nobody gave a flying fuck about those games doing the exact same thing. Never heard it mentioned once, and it's been going on for 6 years. They charged money to immediately unlock in-game items without having to grind for them, this isn't a new system.

The only problem was that they tried to do it at launch.

As for the "random" aspect, ask anyone that's actually playing the game, everyone just grinds Hero crates (cheapest crates) to get the cheapest scrap possible, then unlock whatever you want.

I don't know a single person that's actually received anything they've wanted in a crate. There's 300 cards, and most people are only trying to get 10-15 specific ones. And even if you do get one you want, it'll be a common, which you could have just bought for 40 scrap, which is less than the average scrap (42.5) you get in a single Hero crate.

Finally, W3 locked content behind a season pass, that's the point. There's no maps, heroes, weapons etc that are hidden behind a paywall with SWBFII.

You also seem to forget that CDPR did like SIXTEEN free DLCs for the Witcher 3. With weapons, skins etc.

But yeah, how dare they make fun at EA's expense when EA finds itself in a shitstorm of its own making.


I think it's just in bad taste, as they charged money for post-launch expansion packs. The very thing that the SWBFII model is trying to circumvent.

And for the last time, I'm not defending how poorly they executed this, but I would argue that there's a real nugget of something good in this idea.

For multiplayer games in particular, expansion packs/season passes/DLC map packs = divide the community and basically force you to drop another $30-$50 just to be able to play with the rest of the player base.

That needs to change.

Does a single other person in this thread agree with this point? Cause it's the only point I've been trying to make.

*note, do you see how I clearly illustrated my point at least 5 times in this thread? that's how it's done CJ. saying "everything is cancer" isn't a point, it's just noises.*

Full retard confirmed. Which part of "fucking shitty season pass" or calling it "dog shit" was unclear? In which world is calling something fucking shitty or dog shit somehow "white-knighting"?

Are you fucking insane?

SO WHAT IS YOUR POINT.

What is your solution oh brilliant well-spoken intelligent one? dog shit or cat shit? brilliant.

See how I'm trying to have a real conversation, and you're just sputtering noises?

Try forming an original thought first, then I'll bother engaging you.

Try tackling the obvious problem of how season passes mean that if you don't pay an additional $50 ontop of the $60 base game, then you're just left behind, and the player numbers for servers you can play in plummet.

TRY.

I DOUBLE DOG SHIT DARE YOU.

Try to make a real point.

Do you understand that if players want post-launch content, then the publisher will find a way to make money off of it, they're not a charity. For the 50th time... it's all in HOW they do that.

If you REALLY think that a $50 season pass that permanently divides the playerbase is the BEST way to go about this, then you've drank the kool-aid.

I never said that MTXes was the best way, but I'd rather have that if it means A) it doesn't fuck the experience for the "normal" player. and B) it means that ALL players get access to ALL DLC free-of-charge.

How can you not understand this basic point? Is biting my head off for being an "EA shill" just too tempting? Does it overwhelm any lingering sense of logic you might still have?

re: eRaser

well Dragon Age and Mass Effect are both Bioware Edmonton, which is still thriving. Personally, I can do with "only" 3 entries in a series. Not every IP needs to be endlessly sequel'd for infinity like FIFA. I thought that was something that people were arguing against in this very thread?

I highly doubt that EA is done with fantasy or sci-fi RPGs, they know there's a big market for them. And I'm looking forward to some new IPs from any developer for these titles. Honestly the next Elder Scrolls game will sell a billion copies, but will probably use the same shit engine, and will have all the same problems... Bethesda really needs to inject some fucking money into that franchise if they're going to keep milking it into the 7th entry into the series. They need a "FF VII" moment where they take their franchise seriously and give it a real budget, with a real engine.

re: Pepe

Of course W3 gave you good content for your money. I'm not debating that. Infact most people on here usually just get mad whenever you mention a season pass or DLC in general. It's usually my line that I'm saying that expansion packs have existed forever.

But with MULTIPLAYER games, season passes are a double-edged sword. Even if the content is good and worth the money, it splits the online community. It kills off vanilla servers, and no one plays a DLC pack that launched 3 packs ago, most people only play the most current DLC maps.

THIS is the problem that I'd love to see solved. And the only way to do it is give all DLC maps away to all players, so you have a lasting playerbase that always has access to all maps. It really has to happen sooner or later.
