The retro console is basically just an official version of something people have been making unoficially for years, but still neat. Too bad it can't download new games, or connect to you Nintendo account so you can play other NES games you purchased.

Oh Nintendo, always one step forward with a neat idea and two steps back with awkward tech decisions.

Really! Why could they not have released the same thing, but with EVERY Nintendo game ever made? I'd buy that in 2 seconds.

Licensing issues most likely, I don't know if people are ready to put on their nostalgia glasses and deal with the outdated graphics. USB NES controller is around $3 on ebay, emulator + some game images and you've beat this gadget hands down.

More people are interested in the remastered game than their new Sci-Fi COD.

And you know this - how?

To be sure, that deal is a massive dick move, but the new COD looks fairly solid on its own. At E3 people loved the gameplay in that blind eye test (until it was revealed it`s COD:IW), which I thought was quite hilarious and telling.

Comments on the internet, people being pissed that they're tying the game with COD:IW, general anger about that represented pretty vividly with the down votes on the youtube trailer they released. There's little doubt people wouldn't bother with COD:IW if they sold the HD remake separately for $30. I think they've done the future war scene to death with COD.

What's old is cool what's new isn't. Look at Battlefield 1, going back to it's origins with WWI themed game and seems to be widely accepted as a positive move by DICE.

Exactly, it's like buying bubble gum baseball cards and throwing away the bubble gum. More people are interested in the remastered game than their new Sci-Fi COD.

Credit where it's due, they're smart. The only way to get to play an updated version of the best COD is to buy the latest one...


Actually you have to buy the more expensive "deluxe" $80 edition to get it.

grey market key sites have it for around $52

As far as we know they're not adding bots to multiplayer modes, this will be for offline play (solo on PC and co-op on console).

I have a feeling they're going to do something stupid like have Walker Assault mode on the surface of the Death Star.

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:

http://www.gamespot.com/videos/how-battlefield-1s-air-combat-has-changed/2300-6433139/

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

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.
