News Comments > Crytek CEO Change

Crysis was great, Even Crysis:Warhead was great. Then they targeted consoles to try to actually make money... then some bad decisions, that VR climbing game released exclusively for the Oculus comes to mind... works with a controller only, for a VR climbing game! Why no HTC Vive? You can tell they were hurting for money, that they sucked the facebook dick...

Oh well, I still love Crysis, and FarCry.

Wow.

This game has to have some sort of "Ikarguga" mechanic where you're absorbing one of the colours, as dodging all of those looks super difficult, even for a schmup.

Eh, I don't fault them for showing their product. I do fault them for associating with CPAC though, wretched hive of scum and villainy that it is.

It's funny, all I can think of is Rose's quote in EP 8. when she sets up a similar "It's a terrible place, full of the worst people in the galaxy" line, and then smash cut to Canto Bight with rich assholes clinking champagne glasses. ^_^

Slick already luvs this new game 100%.

ducks for cover

Probably, I've never been apart of one of these events, but I'm considering it this time. I've played on teams with members that have been privy to these shindigs, the one on the disused aircraft carrier for one...

Although TBH, I'm finding it hard to go back to BF1, as Battlefront is just so much more twitchy, and I like the third person combat with dodges built-in, gives it more of an action-adventure mechanic feel.

But I'm sure I'll buy it, and sink hundreds of hours in as i have ever Battlefield game since Battlefield 2... But the REAL Battlefield I'm looking forward to is the spiritual successor to 2142, we'll say "2143". Although I think they might be letting that cook until the next console gen comes along so they can do more with it, better memory access, lots more CPU to come (next consoles will probably be Ryzen tech with Vega GPU embedded). So my guess is the obvious WWII setting, as they already have a good feel for that era with BF1, and it will make the switch back to FUTURE WAR more impactful when they decide to make the move.

Barring the fact that the general sentiment is ill-informed, he does mention the strange dichotomy of restricting access to media if there's sex, but it being fine to show violence.

Say what you will, but he actually touched on something important there in American culture, albeit in a very Chauncey Gardiner kind of way.

Watching a stream of this right now, it's really well done, it reminds me of like a Disney World kind of tour, at least the tone of the narrator really nails that vibe. But it's totally well done, actually educational, not just edutainment.

I should expand on this, it looks amazing, but this game SCREAMS of scope creep. I mean my god, just from this trailer look at how many systems they want in the game, and all working perfectly. I can imagine this would be a nightmare to code. At least the acquisition means that it will probably see the light of day, I just hope that they let it cook until it's ready, because GOD DAMN there's a lot of concepts going on in there. Kinda makes Breath of the Wild look like ginger beer.

I agree with the sentiment that the dev knows best, as a bit of an artist, I respect vision.

I don't think that a shoddy control port from consoles to PC falls within that camp.

That being said, I'm sure everyone is looking forward to the super generic boring as fuck superhero movie(s) this year. Yeah, had about enough of the masses getting their way with how artists make their art. And yes, videogames are sure as fuck art.

I love schmups, I wish they got more love in the american markets. the Japanese CAVE shooters are a rare sight in arcades, and even less frequently on xboxes. Even the playstation catalogue has really died down, PS2 had a lot of them, PS3 dried up a lot...


I have a very "ready player one" relationship with Raiden, as there was a convenience store next to my high school that has it, where for 25 cents I could get a solid 10-15 minutes of entertainment.

Motherfucker.

I hate MS for this.

They bought Mojang and their whole catalogue of 2 games. 1 of them they supported, it made them billions. the other they let rot on the vine, when it is (was) the BEST card-type game on the market. You know that billion dollar market that all the MTG clones have filled in in the past 2-3 years? Like they'd have a hard time marketing "FROM THE TEAM THAT BROUGHT YOU MINECRAFT". But no, they didn't toss up one red cent in advertising. The transition from beta to full launch went by without a whimper. I'll never forgive them for this, that game is so fucking fun. I also collected 3 copies of every card in the game... so sad

Me and the missus enjoyed Bright. Especially the treatment of modern-day elves, as their aesthetic and mannerisms translated perfectly to upper-class snobs in "today's world".

I thought the goodman cloverfield was okay, didn't hold a candle to the original cloverfield, two very different films. If this new one isn't that great I might skip it.

9. Re: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Rumor Feb 5, 2018, 15:59 Slick
 
None of this comes anywhere close to the outrageous practices that are rampant in the mobile gaming sector though.

I know I'm a huge DICE fanboi, but I really don't see how them:

A) being able to earn everything through normal progression in a reasonable timeline.

B) letting those who would pay $$$ for loot boxes bankroll all DLC for all players.

C) Making sure that there isn't one starcard that affects base trooper health or weapon damage.

is at all deserving of this "worst in class" shit.

I've been playing the South Park: Phone Destroyer mobile game, and GODDAMN that game is a fucking money sink. Which is hilarious because South Park actuall made an episode of their show ripping shady mobile gaming practises. And Phone Destroyer is nowhere near the worst of the worst, and in that game you need to keep spending money to get the normal grind worth of loot from playing the game, if you don't spend money, you get about 1/3rd of what you actually earn at the end of each round. You might have actually earned a SUPER LEGENDARY RARE card, but you'll never know it if you don't pay $$$ to flip over spots like a bingo card at the end of the round.

The last BO game had the worst lootboxes I've ever seen, so strange that they didn't get the hate they deserved.

The ONLY way to get the best guns in the game that gave you a SIGNIFICANT advantage in multiplayer was to get them through special loot crates. You had a random chance to earn one at the end of a round, but I played that game for about 150 hours and got exactly ZERO of them. I was not alone according to player reports. I bought the DLC and was awarded one of these crates, that had a gun that killed about 50% faster than anything earnable through normal progression.

I had the option of paying like $80 to get more chances to get these special gun crates.

Having game-progression tied to paid loot crates is divisive enough, but AT LEAST you'd think that it would be possible to get the same gear by just playing the game. 150 hours and zilch.

Fuck that.

"Where are the lootboxes?"

Really?

They're advertising a paid season pass before the game has even launched. If it had lootboxes, the comparison would be that all this DLC content would be free.

I can understand liking one model above the other, but I'll never understand this blind devotion to this industry-standard season pass shit that makes getting the full content of any AAA game a $100+ proposition. And the co-op will split the playerbase too. Nice.

Especially advertising the season pass BEFORE THE GAME HAS LAUNCHED. WTF.

So it's $39.99 on GMG, and there's an extra %20 off you can get for the next 24 hours or so...

I was trying to throw money at my screen cause I'm impatient, but GMG is being stupid, I can't log in. password reset doesn't work. I tried making a new account, that doesn't work...

Sooooo fuck.

I know people are going nuts over monster hunter right now, but I've watched a lot of gameplay from that title, and I think I'd enjoy replaying this one a lot more. It's been a while since I played a solid JRPG.
