Next Car Game seems to be stuck in development hell, they just released an overhaul of their engine and the visuals took a pretty big step backwards.

It really is a lame game design choice. You're an explorer to an unsurveyed world, scanning and naming creatures - but if you kill any of them then hoards of robots just pop into existence and start killing you.

Now if they made other creatures big and small start stomping you into the ground then maybe. You could even have "tremors" like creatures pop out of the ground and try to kill you. But nope, flying robots - on every planet.

The BBC isn't giving them to every 7 year old for free. The tax payers are paying for them.

It's 11 and 12 year olds, you have to be at least interested enough to ask for one. Hell, I want one.

I applaud their initiative, not sure if you're really going to spark the imagination of kids into programing with it but maybe if it was wrapped around structured school based curriculum there's a chance that it could be of benefit.

Looks like the "sentinel" game mechanic could be a major pain in the ass, not being able to even take out attacking AI without invoking the wrath of a ton of auto-generated robots where you can't even clear them out and eliminate a spawn beacon or something. Another, no you can't play the game the way you want because we're going to annoy the crap out of you if you don't play it the way we want you to type design.

If there's a layer of interactivity with other alien races while flying around in space other than just pure shoot or be killed it might be really cool. It's possible there's a layer to it that's like a really old game called Starflight, if so then I'll be blown away.

Minecraft story mode should be all about delivering TV's and Microwave Ovens.

The recasting of the original actors ruins it, where's Bill Paxton?

I think we may end up seeing the PC platform abandoned since the numbers are so much higher on the console platforms.
I hear people say that for years. For years the sales of the PC version dwarf in comparison to the console versions, even if digital sales are added (guessed ). And still ... every year Activision releases a PC version. Is it because Bobby runs a charity?


Sure they make money on it but it runs deeper than the bottom line, on the support side it's much easier to placate console gamers than PC gamers. Retrospectively I'm pretty sure the lead developer from Visceral on Battlefield Hardline would have liked to abandoned the PC platform for "his game", he pretty much said as much in an interview - something to the effect "It would be a shame to have to abandon the PC as a platform but the numbers are much stronger on consoles".

This reminds me of the reaction to Black Ops 3 at E3. Holy shit, you could hear the crickets. This series isn't going to last much longer, sales are plummeting every year after MW3.

The PC isn't the anchor platform for these games anymore, or hasn't been since Modern Warfare. They'll sell plenty of copies of BO3 on Xbox One and PS4. I think we may end up seeing the PC platform abandoned since the numbers are so much higher on the console platforms. Looking at BF Hardline it's the same thing, almost dead on the PC but quite vibrant on the consoles, PS4 taking the lead.

424 In-Game right now

surprising since as far as shooters go I would rate this much higher than say Evolve (740 In-Game).

Great voice cast, not quite sure if it strikes the nostalgia note though.

I can forgive them the lack of customization since they spend so much time and effort intricately detailing and animating every single weapon they release. Maybe they add different attachments later on, but I don't think it's as simple as in other games where you just slap in a slightly different model to reflect the change you've made. Plus being able to put on a scope or something runs counter to the diversity they're building in for each class; there will be a sniper guy with his own long-range weapons, they're just not done yet.

I know they're a reasonably small developer and they've come a long way since their original WWII mod for UT 3 but when you're making a shooter it's all about the guns. If they were making a racing game without the ability to tune your car I doubt it would garner much interest today. I'd rather have the ability to change out scopes and grips than have texture customization. It looks like they've really created a cool slow motion reload animation system with lots of attention to detail. Putting it off on class balance is kind of lame considering it's a PvE game.

I think they could do a better job on the weapon customization, not letting you pick and choose scopes and attachments for your guns and having them locked down to pre-selected options seems regressive in game design.
