The single player seems pretty good, though those animations need to be shorter and seriously where is the goddamn E1M1 remix, that needs to either be front and center or play over the final level.

The MP seems boring as fuck but in fairness who cares about the multiplayer of fucking DOOM.

So this is something I found really amazing, the protagonist is Doomguy from 1 & 2 + the novels and RIP AND TEAR, AKA Flynn Mctagart though like Doom 1 & 2 he goes unnamed, straight up it continues right off the Novels 100 years after he locks himself in hell to police the demons for eternity.

Well I mean, from an art standpoint Battleborn is just flat out uglier than Overwatch. Its designs don't really mesh very well together, and while Overwatch leans into established tropes and does some subtle remixes, Battleborn's designs feel like they are an abstraction. Also not helping matters is the "lol so random!" humor in commercials that often falls flat (which is a shame because the story of a Vampire going around and extinguishing every sun in the galaxy is rad as hell).

Overall Battleborn feels like one of those creative artistic french cartoons like Arthur and the Invisibles. The designs have this uncanny unappealing factor to them.

So youtube likes to dredge up old videos I've seen and spit them back at me from time to time and today I was reminded just how fucking incredibly terrible Randy Pitchford and Gearbox are with the whole Aliens: Colonial Marines debacle. Not just for making a shitty game and lying to everyone about it, taking preorders and DLC and presenting fake mock-ups for reviewers, but then not even feeling a slight shred of responsibility afterwards, practically dancing around and mocking people who were upset by the status of the game. And Randy acted the victim all the while, moaning about how evil "entitled gamers" were and that sales in the marketplace were the only legitimate judge of quality.

Like, this is cartoonishly off-the-charts evil behavior and I am so glad Battleborn bombed. I feel like after all the complete bullshit Konami pulled last year people forgot completely about what Gearbox did, but they absolutely shouldn't and this company should be held accountable for their actions.

There was a Witcher sale earlier this month that had the game + pass for 50 on GoG.

They're not likely to have the full package as a regular product for quite some time. Mind you, I like Witcher 3 so much that I rebought the full thing, and the game is super long, so even at 85 I think it's an incredible value.

Oh for sure. I know its likely got another year or so because now they've got it all out the team is going to go back and take it all apart and then put it back to better all shiny and chrome.

Rehash the textures to look even better. Tweak some skins they didn't think turned out quite right.

It's what I like about the team after they've built the game they'll tear it apart and rebuild it again because they know it can be better.

I'll likely buy the pack if it goes on sale sometime again once my schedule clears up.

I think after Blood and Wine they're going to start winding down on W3 actually. There will be patches but maybe not a full EE (many EEesque updates have already occurred anyway). Need to start focusing on Cyberpunk.

Potions are something I find cool in the books but hate in the games, as I hate crafting in general. 3 makes the potions the least annoying: once you make something, you've made it forever, and it will automatically refill by using liquor in your inventory when you meditate.
But unless forced to I still refuse to make anything but Swallow and Cat unless a quest demands it.

I have my gripes with the gameplay and character building but it's fine, certainly a world apart from the nightmare that was W1. The game stands above on its storytelling.

RPGs I consider TW3 better than: Morrowind, Planescape Torment, Arcanum, Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines, Deus Ex, Dragon Quest 8, FF7, FF9, Soul Nomad and the World Eaters, Fallouts 1, 2, and NV, the Soulsborne franchise

I went into 3 having only read the first two books and played W1 and would say no, not really. Returning characters from the games in 3 are all pretty well established in 3 itself, and a lot of the more important characters are actually making their first non-book showings, most notably Yen and Cir, but also Djikstra and (Blood and Wine) Regis.

W1 is just not a very good game, it doesn't adapt the book characters well and besides the Grandmaster himself adds nothing terribly interesting of its own. W2 is notably better but still can't hold a candle to 3 and still leans on a lot of the Look How Mature And Dark We Are Because Video Games things that 1 did. Play 3, and if you're really curious go back and look at the other stuff.

PC related news. Nvidia is nixing SLI support for three and four card arrays.

https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/nvidia-drops-3-and-4-way-sli-mode-starting-with-geforce-1000-series.html

I can understand why as that is a lot more processing line that has to be handled and SLI has never really been 100% across the board effective. Small handful of games will work fantastic and the rest is a mixed bag with the more cards being used causing bugger effects and over-processing errors.

Also they may be discontinuing their M Class Laptop line and just using the same chips as their desktops.

Speaking of the likes of Postal 2 or Hitman it is interesting in that the design of the game gives the player many options on how to complete their objective including methods that avoid murder all the way up to a true pacifist route where you match the other girls up with other guys to get them out of the way.

Short review: if you heard the news that they're making a Warcraft movie and thought "Cool! I'd like to see that!" you'll probably enjoy this movie fine. If you thought "I don't think that'll be very good." this movie won't do much to prove you wrong.

I went in with a passing familiarity with the series, having never really played any of the games myself, and left satisfied, but just barely. The acting ranged from pretty good (most of the orcs) to completely generic (most of the humans). The story jumps around way too much, with several scenes only lasting a minute or so. I feel the script could have really used a re-write to cut out the less important scenes and story arcs and give us more time with our main characters, who are barely introduced before being thrown into the plot.

Still, the film isn't without merit. It had some cool scenes, I liked some of the characters (mostly the orcs), and it ends in an interesting place that actually makes me curious as to what happens next. If they do make another one, I'll probably go see it.

Oh. Oh, boy. Look, I love Mega Man games—played all the classics up to 8, tried out MM9, nearly beat the first two Game Boy games, whipped a couple of the MM Zero games, smacked down the MMX games up to X5, and even played fuckin’ Mega Man Soccer—and a high-quality modern-day Mega Man “clone” would’ve been just fine with me. The formula doesn’t need too much innovation; a game that surrounds the formula with responsive contols, makes use of all the weapons in fun ways, and offers some increasingly-hard-yet-still-conquerable platforming action would’ve been anywhere from acceptable to “hell yeah motherfucker”. That MN9 didn’t offer any of those things (from everything I’ve seen and read) is far more of a failure than it “diverging from the mechanics” of a typical Mega Man game. But I suppose that’s better than nothing.

I'm also playing Dark Souls for the first time, a game that's known for being difficult, and it's honestly way easier than Katamari Forever.

Scorn is an atmospheric first person horror adventure game set in a nightmarish universe of odd forms and somber tapestry.

It is designed around an idea of "being thrown into the world". Isolated and lost inside this dream-like world you will explore different interconnected regions in a non-linear fashion. The unsettling environment is a character itself.

Every location contains its own theme (story), puzzles and characters that are integral in creating a cohesive lived in world. Throughout the game you will open up new areas, acquire different skill sets, weapons, various items and try to comprehend the sights presented to you.

GAMEPLAY FEATURES

-Cohesive “lived in” world - Scorn takes place in open-ended world with different interconnected regions. Each region is a maze like structure with various rooms and paths to discover .All the storytelling happens in-game, with no cut-scenes to distract you from the grisly reality of the living, breathing world you’re in. But keep your eyes open - the game won’t show you any sympathy if you miss something important on your uneasy travels. Everything has a reason and purpose - you just need to work out what it is.

-Full body awareness – player will experience better immersion being aware of the character’s body and movement. Interaction with the world is realistic - objects are picked up with your hands (instead of just floating in midair), machines and instruments are operated by grabbing the controls etc.

-Inventory and ammo management - is defined and limited. It plays a big role in keeping the player in an even greater state of awareness throughout the whole game. Players will have to think about when to fight and when to take cover and how their actions affect the world around them. Different play styles will be needed to advance.

- Scorn part 1 of 2? Is the game split into parts?

Yes, we are planning to release it in two parts, with the first part coming in 2017.
These two parts represent everything that will ever be done. There will be no DLC, expansions or sequels. Ever.

As we all knew it would be. New Ghostbusters game is crap.

Outside of the Original Cast game. How would one make a good Ghostbusters game. My idea would be Base it in a new City with you being the Stalwart young dupe that decided to buy a franchise. I'd play it out pretty much Mass Effect style. Having to go around and recruit a group into to battle some rising tide big dimensional intruder at the end.

Multiplayer co-op fps tower defense game. Ghosts took over the city and your GB base is the last refuge. As waves of ghosts come you and your friends run around zapping them and placing traps and stuff. Get points/money for beating ghosts and saving civilians, use it to upgrade gear and get new kinds of traps. See how far you can expand your sphere of safety as stronger ghosts start attacking.

Run far outside of the safe area you've made and there are super tough enemies but much higher prizes and more civilians to save than usual. Make a mad dash for them while your friends stay behind to protect the base with less manpower than usual. If you run out of hp outside of the safe area then you're stuck until someone comes to save you. Run out of hp inside the safe area and you're out until the start of the next wave.

It'd be more of a multiplayer arcade style game than a long term thing, with suspend play being available but once you lose that's it for that file.

Left 4 Dead might be a good comparison but base it around defensive combat rather than retreat and stealth. Though you could throw some of that in too.

I'm not really a big ghostbusters fan so I don't know if this is what fans would be into but I'd enjoy playing it.

That's the reason Ghostbusters itself works as a fandom. They don't have to pretend they can be Ghostbusters as some fan fiction addon. They legit can be a franchise and be one of the team. Again that is something Sony should have capitalized on rather than just be regulated to lore and comics.

No Tiki, Drakengard 1 is an awful, awful game. The game part is the shittiest action game past the PS1, and the story is all the worst parts of Berserk tonally, it's like if Black Swordsman was a whole title unto itself. Even Taro himself recognizes how bad it is, it's why he went in such a different direction for Nier and 3. I'm not so hot on 3 but even that's better than 1.

>I'm not so hot on 3 but even that's better than 1.

Words cannot truly capture how wrong you are.

1 is by no means awful, busted mind you, but at very worst a 6.5 out of 10 with my favorite characters and story in a gamee, 2 & 3, especially 2 aren't fit to wipe your ass with.

I've played all of them, Nier and 1 are the best, fuck sake I'm playing 1 now, as I do every six months or so.

I would sooner dig my fingernails out with a rusty spoon than play 2 & 3.

2 is literally the worst game I have ever played in my existence and 3 is...nothing, it has nothing, it is nothing and the less said about it and it's """"""""""""""""""""humor"""""""""""""""""""""""the better.

But all of this is inconsequential, all that matters is that Hymir's Finger is still the best weapon ever.

I went to that Sonic 25th Anniversary event and got to play a level of Sonic Mania. Physics actually felt very good and the animation on everything was gorgeous. Looking forward to the full game. Hopefully Generations 2 will be good as well.

The event itself was a lot better than I expected. Complimentary chillie dogs, onion rings and (up to 2) beers were an unexpected but welcome surprise.

There was a lot going on besides what was on stage, and other than a few announcements and the Crush 40 performance the stage really wasn't the focus of the event. I'm surprised the stream didn't show the crowd during those parts where it's just Sonic dancing on stage, that was sort of the time when everyone just mingled and drank and stuff.

It looks like the stream was pretty terrible but being there in person was fun.

The numerous audio problems were a joke as well as the stream randomly cutting out. I hope someone got fired for that.

The crowd being so autistic though was what really made me embarrassed to be a Sonic fan. Maybe it was just a problem with Johnny's mic, but I was in disbelief over none of the audience knowing the words. Johnny put the mic to a girl's face for her to sing, and she just froze. He got on the ground and put the mic RIGHT up to the audience several times, only for them to do nothing. Except for that one asshole who grabbed the mic and screamed into it like a retard. These people are Sonic fans and they don't know Crush 40?

Aside from that, Sonic dancing and stuff was just standard fair. It's still cringey, but it's a fun kind of cringey. One that you can laugh at with fellow fans.

The stock sank 18 percent to 23,220 yen at the close in Tokyo, the maximum one-day move allowed by the exchange, wiping out 708 billion yen ($6.7 billion) in market value. After debuting in the U.S. earlier this month, Pokemon Go launched in Japan on Friday and became available in Hong Kong on Monday.

The correction comes after Pokemon Go’s release almost doubled Nintendo’s stock through Friday’s close, adding $17.6 billion in market capitalization. Nintendo is a shareholder in the game’s developer Niantic Inc. and Pokemon Co., but has an "effective economic stake" of just 13 percent in the app, according to an estimate by Macquarie Securities analyst David Gibson.

>Nintendo: "We don't own Pokemon Go, it's not even on our consoles, it's a Phone app."

That's the core of the problem. They were incredibly vague when talking about the game.
They kept talking about the impressive planet generation algorithm and when asked what you would actually do in that game they couldn't really offer a succinct answer (maybe intentionally so because they knew that the core gameplay loop wouldn't be terribly exciting to most people, at least that's what the naysayers claim).
And when you leave things vague the mind starts to wander and filling in the blanks and people became convinced you could ANYTHING in the game. It's an entire universe after all!

I think part of that was how the engine was designed they they really didn't know how it would work until put out into the wild. Now that they see how it's working and what it struggles with they can now tweak and patch it till it functions as they wanted it so.

Right now it's all a matter of tuning and tweaking what is already an impressive process engine and maybe it'll work out past those hiccups of it being just a resource scrounge between jumps to plot points.

Seen some bitch that "well this part is like this, and this part is like that." And this game is doing all those things in one game.

I liked her as after you saved her it seemed like she was an alternative to the turncoat bitch that would be a cool companion to trot Jensen around in this new game.

Game series has always felt a little sloppy in that when it tries to start handling the "Bigger Issues" it all goes to shit from a narrative standpoint.

He then released FNAF World, pulled it after complaints of it feeling unfinished and rushed, re-released it (100% free!) with several major fixes and overhauls, and gave it two major updates in the months afterward. He also released FNAF: The Silver Eyes, a novel that ties into the franchise but is set in an alternate universe. A few months ago, Scott said that he never said he couldn’t change his mind about another FNAF game, then started teasing Sister Location on his website. That game is due out on the 7th of October. (After the FNAF World debacle, he promised to stick to any given release date he offered for future games so he wouldn’t rush to release something.)

Oh, and in relation to FNAF 4: As far as I know, nobody has opened The Box yet.

Oh wow. For the longest time, I thought 3 was supposed to be the end one. What with all the Only One Animatronic and all that.

As best anyone can tell, it is chronologically the end of the FNAF story. (Where on the timeline Sister Location sits is unknown right now.)

Not going to install a OS that could possibly break something. Regardless if I have a update disk for it.

I'm talking about the overall arbitrary forcing of support being dropped for everything that isn't windows 10 and the arbitrary requirement of Windows 10 being necessary to run some games. Next iteration of the Intel Chips out next year will only support Windows 10 and they are dropping Skylake 7/8/8.1 support then as well.

Nah, I made the original>>200993 post and I posted it because some things just no longer work properly with Win 10. In particular, I had to write a batch file so I could run an exetutable that's acting up in Win10, due to being written for 7 and not having been updated since. Which I only found out after like 20 minutes of research. Win 10 has its advantages. My system used to be way more unstable in 7 and I haven't had a single freeze or BSoD since I updated, but there's definitely disadvantages as well. (Like Win 10 actively blocking use of the Dualshock 4 with its Xbox app that's running in the background).

For sure its less system heavy and can help some older systems run better because of that.

Just its attempt to forcefully update me more than once rubbed me the wrong way. So any other problems that pop up just confirm to me that isn't something I shouldn't use.

That's not arbitrary at all. Earlier versions of Windows are no longer supported because they're out of date and not having outstanding issues fixed, because they're several years obsolete at this point. It's absurd to expect companies to continue supporting outdated programs just because you grew up in the 90's and are too set in your ways to learn programs newer than Windows XP.

XP had support for over a decade. 7,8 and 8.1 will be sunset the oldest just being 7 years and 8.1 with 5 and technically 8.1 only had support for about a year after which they just quit working on improving it.

XP's support cycle was extended multiple times, not because of anything to do with gaming, but because it was so thoroughly successful as a platform for enterprise software.

Many that just do processing and such with older programs. Microsoft had to settle a couple of lawsuits that broke their systems. I think one was a monitoring station in Africa for wildlife. Windows 10 update broke their tracking software.

You mean the free upgrade Microsoft provided for users of older versions of Windows?

>Many that just do processing and such with older programs.
Generally because they're too lazy to update to newer alternatives, rather than cost issues--there are free options available for most software that will perform just as well as paid software if you're willing to put the work in to make them work. The people who are both cheap AND lazy have no one but themselves to blame for out-of-date software breaking. Even if you missed out and/or were ineligible for the free upgrade to Windows 10, you could at least be using a modern version of Linux to do your work on.

As a former IT guy and current software engineer, it's one of my pet peeves to see businesses unwilling to go to the trouble of maintaining their cyber-infrastructure. It's hard for me to have sympathy for the companies when I know the people who are having to deal with that bullshit are underpaid IT drones who get blamed when shit doesn't work even though the higher ups are actively sabotaging them with their bullshit "Let's use 10 year old computers and obsolete, unsupported software forever" policies.

That depends entirely on what sort of work they're doing. Linux is the best option if you're doing web hosting or if you're doing a lot of automation, but if most of your workers are clerks/secretaries/etc. then they're probably going to work best on Windows, and it's best for compatibility of the IT department uses the same OS as the rest of the staff in most cases.

Linux is still not really ready for casual end-user use, despite Ubuntu trying like hell to make it so. That makes it bad for business uses where the majority of the users aren't, by necessity, pretty tech-savvy.

(This is a reply to a post on /mtv/ about WWE games.)

WWE’s 2K games—which stretch back to the SmackDown vs. Raw franchise, which itself was an evolution of the SmackDown! franchise—aren’t all that great. The gameplay has been tweaked and “overhauled”, but it still runs on the same Yuke’s-developed gameplay engine that ran the original SmackDown! almost two decades ago, and lots of people still thought No Mercy was a better game than the SmackDown! series.. There are changes every year, sure, but there aren’t enough changes to make it feel like a truly fresh gameplay experience from year to year. That doesn’t even get into the long-standing issues with the franchise (such as the lack of a true Survivor Series Match and 2K removing features from one game only to bring them back in another as “new” features).

And realistically, there isn’t really a way to make a pro wrestling game that is an actual “pro wrestling simulator” because pro wrestling is a performance art. A “pro wrestling simulator” that tries living up to that descriptor would involve planning out matches, not playing them—that is, it would mean trying to stage a performance that achieves the “correct” crowd reaction within given parameters (e.g., time limits, wrestlers involved, the story driving the match). And while it might be neat to see what people would do in that regard (“I’ll show those fucking Young Bucks what actual ring psychology really is!” - Jim Cornette, probably), I can’t imagine mass audiences would be as receptive to the idea as they are to the “fighting game” approach that wrestling games have taken since, well, the advent of pro wrestling videogames.

And if I can interject my personal opinion, the SmackDown!/SvR/WWE 2K franchise has always had shitty gameplay. I preferred the AKI-developed N64 games—WCW and WWF—to the Yuke’s-developed SmackDown games because the control scheme and gameplay felt…well, for me, I’d say they felt “right”. The AKI games felt more like games of skill with little room for error thanks to the control scheme and the Spirit system, whereas the Yuke’s games’ “floatier” gameplay always seemed like it was more luck than skill that played a role in who won a match. Maybe that comes down to personal preference. Alls I know is, I’d rather play a game more like No Mercy (or Fire Pro Returns) than any game in the WWE 2K series.
