Always looks super good in videos and screenshots, just wish the actual gameplay were as good. I feel like I'm fighting with a clunky over complicated UI, not quite Derek Smart's Desktop Commander level of over complication but close.

So we simulated going to the moon but the jury is still out on if we actually went to the moon.

I know consoles suffer frame drop but on PC it plays smooth. I'm all for a replacement API that potentially will break the chains of DirectX

season pass is for multiplayer, which of course sucks considering Dooms lineage but it's all about singleplayer for me.

50% off on Doom, almost bought it during the steam sale but didn't.

They have some secret rooms that are textured with original Doom graphics, the contrast between then and now is rather mind blowing.

Haven't found any info on if you can adjust FOV settings, I know this is much more casual than Elite but do they have things like energy management and adjusting shields?

News Comments > Evolve Stage 2 Details
24. Re: Evolve Stage 2 Details Jul 7, 2016, 14:54 DangerDog
 
I can think of a couple of multiplayer centric games on the PC that should do this, Battlefield Hardline and Star Wars Battlefront.

If you bought the game and actually half ass enjoyed playing it the main problem is that these games die off and you pretty much are forced into shelving it.

As for Evolve, it reminded me of some of the multiplayer mods where you have four guys going up against someone with super powers and then once you kill that player you become the monster. The problem though is the scale and maybe the setting. You needed early stages to be like an egg hatched face hugger from Alien and then mutate into a larger warrior Alien and eventually turning into a Queen. They didn't even steal from classic monster games where you eat people for health. Where's the destruction too? You just stomp around doing laps around the map till the monster is cornered for a boss battle, over and over again.

This game is just straight up boring, on paper it might have sounded like a good idea but somewhere in the execution phase it didn't turn into an amazing experience.

F2P means you'll have to grind your ass off or pay up. Good luck to whoever wants to waste either their time or money on this one.

Well there is this video:

A joystick is definitely going to be even more a huge advantage, at least for me since that's what I'm used to.

I don't know, it's all about controlling your speed so you can do optimum angle turns. I doubt they'll have anything beyond gamepad support for joysticks. Still looks like a meta game aside from people dropping bombs on your head.

It's all fun and games till you go up against a bunch of people who just fly aircraft and have completely mastered the air vehicles to the point of being instant death if you even attempt to take to the air.

I am one of those that frustrate others with air vehicles in BF games

Curse you Red Baron

Like that one air combat mode in BF4, completely avoided it but then DICE forced it on everyone in order to unlock the UCAV I think.

That was incredibly frustrating.

Yeah, CoD is all about the gun porn. This is one of those "hey wouldn't it be cool..." moments where in reality it just isn't.

still probably would have ended up better than Ryse: Son of Rome.

I also think it looks like it's going to suffer from lack of variety of weapons to unlock.

/me virtually chokes the life out of you

say what you want about unlocks but it keeps people playing, most games with shallow unlock systems die pretty fast.

My interest in this one is lukewarm, I have a feeling this one isn't going to have the staying power of previous Battlefield games.

Something about the squad mechanic seems off from the "real" gameplay shown, I also think it looks like it's going to suffer from lack of variety of weapons to unlock.

It definitely looks nice and I hope they don't nerf the visceral, violent look and feel of the game. So much nonsense about being revolted at "violent video games" in the lamestream gaming press, every game needs to be "bejeweled".

Step one, create a master image backup of you system. (Macrium Reflect Free)

Step two, perform upgrade to 10

Step three, restore your system from image backup.

you now have a free license to 10 should you need or want to use it in the future (tied to that PC of course.)

people kidding themselves that they're going to abandon "Windows" platform because 10 touches them in the naughty place with their heavy handed upgrade process. good luck with that plan.
