Have we cycled back to WWII games again ..?

I though we were only allowed to have slightly futuristic settings for another 5 or so years ...

News Comments > Ghost Recon Breakpoint Free Weekend Begins

9. Re: Ghost Recon Breakpoint Free Weekend Begins Mar 27, 2020, 07:17 aka_STEVE
 
It is worth the $15 you can get it for,... it has some decent gameplay / environments.
BUT as others said, it definitely feels like a cheaper made version of Wildlands & the Division had a baby ,...that was not treated well ...

And that is after the latest huge patch that fixed a metric shit ton of things. It was deservedly rated very bad before this for good reason.
So it is like almost every top AAA release in the past few years, overpromised/ underbaked / ..more like a late,late Beta version.

News Comments > DOOM Eternal Killing It

33. Re: DOOM Eternal Killing It Mar 26, 2020, 14:39 aka_STEVE
 
I've played enough now to agree with the people saying , 'overall' it just isn't as much fun as it could be. It's almost like work. No replayability , because there's not enough mindless, shooting - running around rooms having fun blasting away on end.
Play DOOM 64 that came with it and you will notice the difference of playing & having fun with a game almost 25 years old versus the newer one.
I would pretty much say that Doom 2016 was a 'better game' ... No stupid, overly complex story, no swinging like a russian gymnast or climbing walls endlessly -- it just had a lot of good killing action , over and over.

I still like Doom Eternal , I just wish it had more of that DOOM shooting & less of the rest they added .

I'm ok with either way , but this new way seems a bit too spaced out now.
A little tweaking perhaps.?

News Comments > Epic Games Publishing Announced

18. Re: Epic Games Publishing Announced Mar 26, 2020, 14:26 aka_STEVE
 
Most of this sounds more than fair for EPIC to be doing. They are getting serious about being competitors to Steam.


The only odd thing that struck me was Remedy signing exclusives....
Didn't they finally get away from that Microsoft deal of exclusives they signed & was saying how great it was to be free ,...and all that jazz . Then they go and immediately sign another exclusive deal with someone else.

Weird bunch over at Remedy. * Exclusive addicts , methinks *

Pretty sure the real reason is 1 word = lazy , or complacent.

They don't have any members with the ability or the drive to work years long on any kind of a game anymore.... If it can't be completed in a week or two, like a 'hat' or a 'skin' for an already established game... why should they bother.?

News Comments > DOOM Eternal More Than Doubles DOOM (2016) Player Count

3. Re: DOOM Eternal More Than Doubles DOOM (2016) Player Count Mar 23, 2020, 11:43 aka_STEVE
 
it's good when it's good ( all out frantic shooting of demons ) , but the platforming, puzzle jumping, quadruple air sprint dodges ??? - WTF?
When did that become part of DOOM ?

It is like a 1st person shooter of TombRaider, mixed with Darksiders,,,, in some parts.
Like I am sitting there playing it, enjoying it, - but then I start saying to myself, " yeah, I'm sure these demons from Hell have some kind of Hell-gineer come in to architect in all these elaborate doors & lifts & puzzles for every one of their demons to navigate just to get in & out of these damn places....

I am still amazed at how much money has been lost on this franchise by the lack of quality movies & games made from it.

News Comments > The Division 2 Warlords of New York Opening Season

3. Re: The Division 2 Warlords of New York Opening Season Mar 11, 2020, 07:07 aka_STEVE
 
There is a pretty significant issue that is causing the original DC map enemies to be way overpowered.
Literally can take 10,000 rounds to kill a high level gold colored enemy - but only a handful of bullets to kill you . Plus I found many, many enemies actually will chase you for miles now.
They may have fixed it in the 3-hour downtime work they did yesterday , but there was NO mention of it,...so.... YMMV .
Enemies in the new WArlords New York map are as to be expected difficulty...it's just when you go back to DC that the 'sponginess' is far worse than it has ever been before. Nearly impossible.
