What the Slashman said. This type of game looks like a perfect match for a tense, atmospheric, old school solo experience. Why fuck that up with "LULZ DID YA JUST SEE HOW I FUXX0RED DAT MUNSTAAAAH BRUUUHHH????!??!?!"?
I see you didn't get it either. I don't have much else to say other than what I already did in my last reply to Slashman, except that I said I'd like "co-op support", not "co-op required".

Just because some devs fail at it, doesn't mean it has to be so. A guy can hope - which is all that was. I'm not against single player only games.

Please go play some multiplayer-focused loot box garbage for that experience (like Overwatch or whatever you kids play these days) and leave at least SOME games alone for a mature audience who enjoys a decent solo romp. kthx.

Not a kid, and yeah, I hate that shit just as much as you do. That's not at all what I was suggesting.

And I'm sorry you're so insecure that you need someone else to validate your fun for you.
Sure, because that's what I was getting at (*eye-roll*). Spoken like someone without friends to play games with.

Slashman wrote on Dec 8, 2017, 15:01:
Back on the topic of co-op, I prefer single player games that focus on story, RPG elements and environmental interaction to stay that way. Because either you get a watered down experience or you get silly situations where players get ignored and the game tells you that you're playing alone, which breaks immersion anyway.

If I want to play an FPS with friends, I'll plat Vermintide, L4D or some other game that is built from the ground up with co-op. Shoehorning in co-op for no other reason than to check a box is dumb and produces lower quality games.

Your silly comment about lazy developers is actually about applying time and resources where they make the most sense. Of course that's hard to see when playing a single player game makes you piss your pants with fear that you won't have a friend to along to let you know you enjoyed yourself.

The only thing silly is you, arguing with that straw man.

Of course I never said, implied, or meant that co-op should be an afterthought, shoehorned in simply to check a box - I don't want that either. Of course I meant that if it were to have co-op, it should be built around it (but not require it, so it can still be played solo), so that it can be done well and still retain the immersion that we *both* want.

You seem to have missed my entire point, that those desired elements *can* still exist within a co-op setting. This also logically infers that by making this point, I was saying that would not want them to just haphazardly toss in co-op support at their expense.

Well this is definitely going on my list to check out. Graphically and thematically, that looks amazing.

*crosses fingers for co-op support*

Sure! Let's take a promising atmospheric and dark FPS which would benefit from interesting environmental interactions and effects and fuck it up with co-op support to limit single player possibilities.

I'm in!!!

The presence of co-op does not preclude these possibilities. The fact that some co-op games are lacking in these areas is the fault of the developer, not the concept of co-op itself.

At the very least (given a lazy or unimaginative developer), it could be handled like how Halo did it, where the story, cinematics, interactions, etc behaved as if it were a single player game with only one Master Chief, and the co-op partner is completely ignored.

Games are more fun with a friend. I'm sorry you don't have any friends.

That's only because cats dedicate the majority of their brain-power and intelligence towards being crazy assholes. There just isn't much left over for anything else.

I'm pretty sure if EA doesn't handle their stuff Disney is going to move their Star Wars IP elsewhere.
We can only hope.

From the minute they announced that EA had an exclusive Star Wars license, everyone knew it was going to be a shit-show.

Comcast wants to get bigger, again, has begun talks with 21st Century Fox.

I really hope Disney is able it pick it up first. Imagine having the X-Men and Fantastic Four/Doctor Doom/Silver Surfer finally back at Marvel in the MCU where they belong. Not to mention Disney having the rights to finally release a proper, un-fucked-with original Star Wars trilogy.

I can feel a nerd-boner forming already.

Once Ajit Pai is gone, it's going to take a LONG time to fix all of the damage he's done, even if it can be fixed.
This is pretty much the cycle of how the US government has worked for decades.

Republicans in power basically trash the place and shit all over everything, then the Dems come back and spend 8 god-damned years trying to clean up the colossal mess. Then Reps return, proudly take credit that they fixed the "mess" Dems were stuck with, which is taken as gospel by every inbred toothless uncle-fucker across the country, then proceed to destroy it all again.

It's disgusting.

Reminiscent of Heretic/Hexen. Which reminds me to renew the call I make every couple of years that we need a modern version of this style of game.
Techland has one in the works but warner brothers pulled them off to work on the Dying Light dlc. They could be back at work on it now, not sure there's any more dlc coming.
Hellraid. I was really looking forward to that and was disappointed when they announced that development was put on hold. Hope they're back at it now.

I found out my university (yes I am back in school, yay) blocks Steam. I literally cannot go to store.steampowered.com without a vpn.

Have you tried alternate DNS servers? They may be just blocking the domain and not the IP(s). It seems fairly common for IT departments to not really know much about what they're doing, and sometimes there are simple work-arounds.

Try using Google's: 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4

Why is this rocket surgery? Just make a game like Witcher 3 set in the SW universe where you're a Jedi traveling around doing Jedi shit.
Bam! Printing money.

Also, wasn't this the one that was based off of the canceled 1313 game? The one with Uncharted-like gameplay? If so, they're idiots for changing this, it would have sold like gangbusters, especially with Amy Hennig on board.

It ran at a solid 60fps at 4k with everything maxed (except AA one notch down, as MSAA was broken) on a i7-6700k and 1080ti.


What did you expect with a 1080ti? It would actually mean something if that's done on a 980 or something similar.
Sure, it's fast, but even with a 1080ti, many newer AAA games don't run so well at 4k. At least not at the highest graphics settings.
