If they nailed the gameplay who cares about the graphics. What's up with that turned based Battletech game though? Is that out yet?

This is like the one thing this game doesn't need. Superficial variety. The last expansion pack that added AI races was pretty good. The game would be perfect if it added more variety that actually reflected in specific gameplay changes. As it is playing with most of the species in the game feels exactly the same with each playthrough.

A Star Trek Tarantino movie? Well why the fuck not? I mean how much worse could the franchise get? At least Tarantino might be able to surprise us all...

News Comments > Abandon Ship Won't Set Sail This Year
5. Re: Morning Tech Bits Dec 2, 2017, 05:41 VaranDragon
 
There is only one decent sailing game out there at the moment, and its called Naval Action.

Be warned, its an alpha. The GUI is terrible, the learning curve is extremely steep, and the gameplay is brutal and unforgiving. You will be ganked. A lot.

Still, I've got over 500 hours in it, and can't stop playing.

Avoid Naval Action Legends, its a WOT style cash grab game. Naval Action however, is excellent despite its many faults.

I think I will pick up the book series that the movie is based on sometime, perhaps a good Christmas list opportunity.

Im just finishing a second rereading of the entire series. The film is remarkably faithful to the two main characters of the book series, (though not to any particular story in the books) which is why it works so well.

The series is 20 books overall, but they are such fun to read (once you get used to the 19th century language) that it goes by too fast....

This is like the worst article ever. Scaring people doesn't work? Bullshit. Fear is one of the primary motivators known to man. (And Animal).

Fear of losing your job. Fear of not getting food on the table. Fear of not procreating.

That it's not the BEST motivator out there has generally been known since the 17th century. Though it's still being used to good effect today. (See: Pretty Much Every Western nation's Domestic & Foreign Policy)

So yeah, old fucking news.

I hope they don't dumb down Magic to be more like Hearthstone... The thing I like most about MTG is the complexity! The depth of the synergies, the combos, the variety of decks and play styles... These are things that make Magic so great!
I like Hearthstone also but it is a quick, easy, time killing thrill. Magic is an involved, strategic, time consuming hobby. They may share a genre, but the two are not the same game and I know how popular Hearthstone is right now and that Wizard wants to get in on that money train but I hope they give in to the mob...

Lax

Prepare to be dissapointed. Tragic: the Garnering is coming....

Well since Cyberpunk will NOT be based on a particular character so you will have the freedom to create, taylor and role play a different character for each playthrough, and supposing that they create as interesting a world and quests as they did for the Witcher 3, Id say that Cyberpunk 2077 could definitely be a better role playing game right out of the gate.

Id also say that it's time for someone to take on Bethesda with regards to single player RPGs, they have been lax in the past few years progressively dumbing down their RPGs. Their really last GREAT RPG was Morrowind. As great as the Witcher 3 was, it didn't really compete with the ES series, as it doesn't have the freedom to create and roleplay a character of your own choice.

I wonder if the 1% read those headlines and think to themselves "Why not all of it?"

What happens then? What happens when they have all of it?

The Thing is one of my all time favorite films. Here is an award winning short story, based on the film, from the perspective of the alien, called "The Things" by Peter Watts. It's a weird mindfuck, but highly recommended:

I thought everyone was supposed to stop buying EA games about 15 years ago. Ubi around 8. Activision 5 etc. I don't look at them as conduits to my gaming nexus. Sure I may buy their games... at great discount, but again each stand on their own.

Lol I guess "everyone" didn't read the "Pissy PC Gamer Monthly" you've been putting out.

Some of us choose to judge things based on their own merits, and not because we have to identify with a tribe.

BTW This is the part where you tell me that "Everyone" (more and more gamers every day) is a moron, and you're the smart one.

What tribes, what the fuck are you on about? Just because you like to play garbage doesn't mean that everyone else does.

On Last Action Hero. The reason Arnie gives is really dumb. The movie bombed because it opened against Jurrasic Park. End. Of. Story.

In any case, it still made money overseas, and True Lies came out later and was a big hit.

I kind of like that movie, it's a guilty pleasure despite the annoying kid.

It's still way better than anything Michael Bay ever made.
