    @seeyoshirun:
    "Reading the discussion here just confirms for me that I really need to play Prey."
    Oh you should. The only problem with this game is that it should have been called System Shock 3 :-D It is awesome in so many areas. If you like games like System Shock, Deus Ex, Dishonored it is a game for you. Fantastic level design, interesting story, huge freedom and non-linearity and it is long. (25-35 based on how many side quests you decide to finish). It is really joy to explore Talos I and its mysteries.

  • PS4 exclusive Dreams will launch next year

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 08/12/2017

    Im still little "confused" about this game. It looks nice in trailers. But so far they did not shown anything what to expect from the gameplay and creating point of view. They shown 3D Paint SW, few colorfull enviromnents (how long it took to create it?) and few platforming gameplay shots.
    But there is no info about the game content released on the disk (will there be paltforming game like LBP? Will ti be random bunch of demo minigames? What is it?). And they did not shared any info about creator tools. Ok I can paint 3D stuff a hopefully animate it with drag and drop. But how will we create gameplay? Will it be PLC style like LBP? (sensonrs, logic gates connnected to interactive elements like lights, motors?) Or are they planning osme simpel programing language? How will it work?

    It is kind of difficult to look forward to this just because it is shiny. Tell us how it plays?

  • In defence of Oblivion

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 27/11/2017

    Tes IV is kind of difficult to rate. On one hand it was great in many ways a I really enjoyed it at the time. Especialyl the huge world and atmosphere. But from the gameplay point of view it was broken is so many ways - absurd level scaling, leveling system that made no sense (by choosing different main stats you could have maxxed fighting skill and still be level 1 just because you did not leveled the main skills yet), etc. The copy + paste dungeons.

    From this point of view the Skyrim is much better game. It does not bring so much new. But the world fells more believable, the rpg system is fixed, almost each dungeon feels unique and memorable in some way. So even if it was not such huge graphical leap, I enjoyed it more.

    LordDemigod:
    I died probably just twice during the whole game. As I said there are probably two or three moments, where you have to avoid the enemies. But otherwise it is just easy walking simulator. Mostly empty spaces without enemies. Or with enemise that are slower than you, so you can just walk/run around them.
    Im actually really surprised why this is even called horor game? It was great game with great atmosphere. But with harmless enemies, no gore and no jump scares, I was missing anything that would reseble "horor" genre. If one enemy in area searching for you and can kill you is a horor definition, than Hitman is more of a horor game, than RE7? :-D

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 22/11/2017

    What? It was possible to be killed by the monsters in the original game? Maybe if you really intentionaly run towards them. But otherwise? There were just few really slow enemies and you could just run around them. I believe I rememeber two or three parts, where you had to sneak around little bit, otherwise you could ignore them completelly. Reply +1

  • South Park: The Fractured But Whole review

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 18/10/2017

    Im still at the beggining of the game. But so far my feelings are mixed. The combat seems better (this game actually may have some gameplay). But the jokes does not feel so funny (at least in the beggining). It really fells like they trown all great ideas into the first one and now this is just collection of the leftovers. (but hopefully it will get better later on).
    Also the enviromnent is almost completelly the same. So it feels more like story DLC than a new game. And especially if you play both games one after another (because you get first bundled), you may be dissapointed by same locations. (I mean imagine purchasing fallout 4 just to find out that you are starting in Megaton and almost whoel map is the same...)

  • One year on, is No Man's Sky the game it should have been?

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 09/08/2017

    Considering how the game was patched, updated with content and mainly price droped to the propper indie level, this game is now really worth the purchase.
    It will not give you infinite content, you will not probably "finish it", but it will give enough fun for the value paid. It is really simple to spent 10-20 hours without even realizing how fast the time flies. And that is more than enough for some 20 bucks.

    @shmups4ever:
    From what I understand from the articles the death system is not punishing. It is not like hardcore mode in Diablo or Iron man in Xcom. It is acting more like placebo effect. It is forgiving, you should have no problems finishing the game playing normally. But you jsut feel the deaths are more impactful.

  • Valve hired former Kerbal Space Program developers

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 24/05/2017

    @Murton:
    Hopefully there is some light at the end of tunel. The console version was not developed by the Squad, but outsourced to another company. After all these faulered, they hired completelly anothor studio (with better reputation) to finish/rebuild the console version and they are working on it for more than half a year. So hopefully their version will actually work and will be certified.
    This is also one of the main reason for the huge delay. They are not just making patch. But basically working on a new port.

  • Outlast 2 review

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 28/04/2017

    @Kain1:
    "A pinch of combat is really needed to shake up the eternal monotony of stealth and constant running."

    Exactly. In my opinion pure stealth games does not work well as a horror. If you add some action, it is much scarier.
    The thing is - it is just a game and it has to be finishable. You know that you can get out of every situation with reasonable difficulty. So as long as a game keeps me without any weapons and other means to defend myself, Im just too much aware that there is no real danger to be afraid of. Such games basically become walking simulators. And no matter how much I like this genre, it just does not works as a scary horror.
    But give a player few powerfull weapons and sudenly the player will expect danger behind every corner. Browning his pants each time some shadow resembles something running to him.
    I mean I was much more scared as a marine i AvP1 (action game) then in the first half of the RE7 (horror game) exactly for this reason.

  • Learning to love Dwarf Fortress, gaming's deepest simulation

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 17/04/2017

    This game is not as difficult to learn as some people say. The biggest obstacle is graphics. But it does not take long to start to understand what is what. It is not complete random gibberish. So soon you understand that smiley face = dwarf. "d"= dog. Blue square = water. quotation marks = grass, etc.
    Once you undertand this, then there is gameplay. And I would say it has two levels. The first is traightforward building strategy. There is nothing so much complex about it. If you are able to play Dungeon Keeper, Theme Hospital, etc you will be able to play this. You dont need months to understand this game. Few hours and you are in.
    Then there is the second level of crazy details that simulates basially everything. But you dont need to understand this. You dont need to plan the nail grow of your dwarwes. But all these details are what creates interesting funny stories that can not happen in other games. They will make oyu loose the game. But it will be fun loosing it in some surprising way. And you will have fun talking about it on forums.
    This is what makes the game stand out of the other competition. It is not about winning. It is usually about loosing in some funny unexpected chain of events that other games can not provide.

  • Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition review

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 07/04/2017

    Not sure if remaster is worth for people who played it already.
    But if you missed the game, just do yourself a favour and buy it. Awesome game. It may not look from the videos, but the gameplay is really polished and really fun. Different weapons and interactive enviroment gives you lots of possibilities how to eliminate the enemies. And it is balanced in a way that you have a great control over what is happening on the battlefield. Giving you great sense of satisfaction when you pull out some nice combos.

  • Dark Souls trilogy ends on a high note in The Ringed City

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 31/03/2017

    I dont believe we may wait for another DS or BB for a really long time. I dont believe that by this turning point Miyazaki ment end of the series. I just believe they want to switch the gamedesign and genre. They dont want to end up as a one-trick-pony doing basically same game (no matter how good) over and over again as some other developers. (looking at you Telltale) So I guess their next title may still be in DS universe, but with completelly different gameplay. Something completelly new build from scratch. Not just as "a big DLC".

    @Beva78:
    True. But "not discussing gay issues in a story that is not about gay issues at all" is not same as "Pretending they dont exist".
    Again. Lets not jump from extreme to extreme. If we dont want to ignore gays, it does not mean it should be somehow mandatory to explicitly including them everywhere and pointing out "This is a gay character! Loook! Dont overlook it!"

    As I mentioned... how do we know, there are not gay / trans characters in the game? Is it really stated about every NPC in the game?

    Of course they are not as bad. But how is that related?
    Beiging against pedofiles is fine.
    Being against racism is fine.
    Fighting racism with racism is wrong.
    Simple.

    Your comparisons is kind of flawed. because being (active) pedofile is wrong. But there is nothing wrong about beigin gay. And there is nothing wrong about being straight.

    @Beva78:
    And what is the difference between saing "These characters are gay and I dont like it" and "These charactes are straight and I dont like it"?
    What is the difference between "This director should win the Oscars this time, because he is white and we believe more white directors should win." or "This director should win the Oscars this time because he is black and we believe more black directors should win."?
    Or what is the difference between "Sorry we can not hire you because you are black and we need to hire some white people now." and "Sorry we can not hire you because you are white and wee need to hire more black people now." :-D

    One of them is clearly wrong. And we try to be so much correct that we believe that complete oposite is actually right. even if it is racist in exactly same way.
    Shouldnt we be like "This character is great because he is interesting?" "This director should win because he directed best movie" or "We will hire you because you are most qualified?" Not mentioning race/sex/.. at all?

    Anyway - how do we even know, that there are no trans/gay people in the game? Most of them dont advertise it publicly anyway. So this discussion and complains are not really about missing trans/guy people in the game (we can argue that half of the NPCs are trans who dont talk about it with everybody they meet). We are discussing if the game should shovel this issue to your faces even when it is completelly unrelated to the story.

    @Melonfodder:
    Makes sense to me. You dont have to have problem with gays. Yet you can find it annoying when somebody is making up some issues from the thin air.
    Saying it is wrong that the game/movie/... has a black or gay person in it is bad (we all probably agree it is wrong) as much as to complain that there are only white or straight people. In both case you have issue with the race/sexuality of some character.
    Equality is a great thing. But people dont realize that more does not mean better. And that if you take it far you are doing exactly the same thing you are trying to fight.

    The correct approach is to not care about character sexuality or race. If you care to the extend that you complain, you are doing something wrong. And it really does not matter if you complain that the character is gay. Or if you complain the character is straight and not gay. Both are same complains.
    So you can be totally fine with gays. Yet you can be really anoyined by people who use political correctnes to push their racicm/sexism.

    @AgentDaleCooper:
    What was most dissapointing about ME3? The ending. (maybe last hour?).
    After dozens of hours of building suspense, characters, lore and preparing for the final battle. And after all the promisses where develoepr ensured players that there will be multiple endings according your choices and what you did was meaningfull, ... after all this they basically thrown everything away and slapped together the ending that was not just bad, but also lazy and felt like from another game. It just left like they run out of budget in middle production and did not have roesources to finish what they planned, so they just put something else as fast as possible.
    After all the quality storytelling before that point it is still mind bending, how they could not keep up the quality for a few more minutes.

  • Pathologic teaser demo released for free

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 14/03/2017

    @chucklepie:
    "I know it takes time to review a game, but isn't that is why companies have full time staff...."
    I believe the full time staff is basically what holds big review sites back. If you do it full time, you have to be paid. You have to be paid enough to make living by playing games and making reviews. So you have to write review that will have enough visitors to actually generate enough money from advertisement to pay you.
    So technically there is some treshold and if you expect review of such game to have less readers, it is just not worth it and you cant afford it.
    (I mean if you need to spent 10 hours to finish the game and wirte review and advertisement on that article would generate only 20 bucks, would you do it for a living and as a full time job? Or would you review some big AAA title that everyobody will read and it would have hundreds of comments?)
    If you want to have reviews for not so well known games I guess you need to be on some side, where people write for free just because they love to share their opinions about games. (but then there is a problem in quality and that reviews are usually writeten by fans of the game = biased opinions and scores) But it is not viable on comercial site.

  • The case for a video game musical

  • Agarwel_Idiriz 27/02/2017

    Honestly I can not imagine how something like "Game musical" would work as a propper big game.
    The musicals (as we know them from the movies) are basically about very precise choreography, that is maching the music as much as possible. So you have main characters matching the music. You have lots of extras synchronized with the main characters. And also the camera is involved and the way it moves and when it cuts is important to create interesting musical number. (imagine opening of La La Land with static camera and cuts.)
    So if you are developing the game, this really limits your options when talking about gameplay. I can not imagine how you can create good musical performance and give player the standart 3rd person freedom at a same time. In my opition it is imposibel to do. And if Im wrong it would be veeery difficult.

    So when you are talking about musical games, you have just two options in my opinion. You can create rhytm game. So you dont control the game (the musical number is fixed) and the game just tells you what to press and rates you how good you are at following instruction. From this point of perspective we have lots of musical games. Mostly party games. Guitar hero, singing games, dancing games. But I believe this is not a type of "musical" this article is talking about.
    Second option is to to a standart game and just use musical number in the cutscenes. But then people still judge the game by gameplay and dont consider it musical anyway. Or did you hear anybody to refer to Gat of out Hell as a musical game?

    If you want a game where gameplay parts are on part with La La Land, you are just out of luck. Nobody found a way how to mix it yet. And nobody know if there is a way.

    @raheell9:
    "the very definition of a review is to evaluate whether something is good or not."
    The main purpose of the review is to describe the game to you. It is then up to you to determine if it is something you will like. (because the same game can be meh for me and msut have for you. And vice versa). This is also main reason why all the scores are meaningless.
