News Comments > Destiny 2 Microtransactions?
15. Re: Destiny 2 Microtransactions? Sep 5, 2017, 00:06 .Drifter
 
As far as I can tell, the new UT is both modable and free, and yet I hear next to nothing about it on here or elsewhere. I keep hearing over and over that if a great, modable game came out, people would be all over it, and the original UT was what I consider one of the greats in that area. Is the new one just that bad or user unfriendly?

News Comments > Star Citizen Alpha 3.0 Delayed
7. Re: Star Citizen Alpha 3.0 Delayed Jul 31, 2017, 21:37 .Drifter
 
We’ve pushed far past the technological boundaries that were previously considered impossible to build the foundation of the Star Citizen universe. Working on 3.0 has certainly introduced variables and challenges that we could never have anticipated, and these just do not always cater to a tidy date on a calendar.

Just reading this as one sentence, without really thinking too hard as you read, it almost seems like they're saying the foundation of Star Citizen was impossible due to technological boundaries, at least until 3.0 came along . . . which would mean they were promising the impossible up until now?

Looks interesting, but the biggest complaint seems to be people running around killing you.

Watched the video on the website . . . looks like a different artist might have designed Fury, she doesn't quite match up with War or Death, stylistically.

2 was great, like a more arcadey GTA 4.. but man it ran like complete and utter ass on PC. I think it's one of the worst ports I've played on PC...

Ran like shit on my XP machine years ago. Runs smooth as butter under windows 7 though. At least the 64bit one.

News Comments > Steam Review Changes to Fight Fraud
48. Re: Steam Review Changes to Fight Fraud Sep 14, 2016, 00:14 .Drifter
 
My 2 cents. I glance at the score on Steam to get a sense of what the majority thinks. Then I read the reviews, and base a purchase on them, not the score. If I see a dozens of "Thes ar uh bad gaem, dno't bye it, teh devloper sukcs" and a few "this game is good, but with flaws, let me lay them out for you" then I go with the second type as my guide, so doing this has no real impact on how I pick to buy a game or not.

Well crap, I thought it was a remake of the old Origin game from years ago . . .

I figure they just started out with each game version relatively equal, and are tweaking for the individual systems, like that turret nerf that didn't hit PC.

I've been enjoying it, started playing the day after launch and didn't touch beta. There just seems to be a frantic feel to the gameplay that I haven't felt in years in other fps I've played, and I like it. I have some doubts about the longevity, unless they put out a few more game modes, but I'm having a ball for now. Oh, and last night was the first time I'd heard anyone in voice chat for the game.

Why the fuck would you "face" or "confront" an immortal emperor? That's about as fucking retarded as it gets but being an EA/BioWhore game it's par for the course these days. Retard central craps out retarded story. Great job.

Movingalong

Immortal doesn't necessarily mean unkillable. Just look at Highlander.

To be fair, so far everything I've kickstarted I've been satisfied with, with the possible exception of Mighty #9. I think every time they post on that one, my expectations just drop a little more.
It's like lending money to a friend, be careful, and never give out any more than you can afford to lose.

When I noticed something was odd, found the issue withing 5 minutes or less with a google search. Admittedly, it was later in the day when I tried to log into Steam.
As for not notifying anyone, yeah they didn't update the main page (which was stupid, imho), but they did put up a post in the Community forum.

I think the idea of a stand alone game or movie focusing on Han Solo has completely lost it's luster after what they did to the character in the Force Awakens.


Pretty sure that's what Harrison Ford wanted, seeing as how that's what what he wanted for his character in Return of the Jedi, so I don't know all of that can be put on the writers. It does mirror Ep IV, in a way, though.

Still Gamebryo...

yup, a 20 year old engine :/

you can only throw so many coats of paint on a dead horse...

it's not the "graphics" which hold it back, it's everything else, the object count, view distance, polygon count, animations, really the animations still look like they're 1999...

*Looks at Fallout 4*
*Looks at Quake III Arena*
. . .
Yep, look exactly the same.

Wonder if they're just extending the voice chat they put in WoW a while back. Which no one seems to use?

Wondering if they were playing that real time, or if it was like that Lionhead demo a couple years back, the one with the boy in it, where it was all pre-rendered and choreographed for them to interact with it.

I guarantee they had to mention MWO in that pitch video specifically because they are using their art style. Basically free advertising. It sucks that they didn't even mention MW3, MW4, and MW:LL. Oh well, I'm in it for the turn-based gaming and SO... SOOOOO glad it is not f2p, hallelujah.

I can almost see it now, "What's this MWO they are mentioning? A new MechWarrior, could it be!?" *Intrepid clueless buyer Googles it and finds it* "Oh is it like MW5?" *They see f2p* "Oh its that game... so its not actually MW5... and the Mechs cost more than Shadowrun Returns, Hong Kong, and BattleTech combined?"

If I remember right, a lot of the original artwork was used without permission from Japanese anime and manga, so they had to change it, probably why they went with MWO's art style.

Loved Mystery Men, one of my favorite movies, always hated they didn't make a sequel. Heard Stiller still wants too, but that was a couple years ago, and I think it would just flop now.
