How about "Remember this quality piece?" or "Meanwhile, on Eurogamer"...

Anyway, seeing it's a free for all for requests can we add an empty comment or header in the comments every time an update is made so we can easily see which comments are probably referring to the update rather than the original content?

The God who Peter Molyneux forgot

Worst thing is that combat needs to be in place before multiplayer, coupled the tagline on that screenshot where you can play against other gods...

Does that mean Bryan could lose his position as God of Gods as the result of a fight with another player? So he might finally become God of Gods only to lose his title a few hours later?

DICE ponders: what did people really like about Battlefield: Bad Company?

AcidSnake

4 years ago

DICE:

In SP:
Good banter that makes the otherwise generic gameplay go by easier...You just can't pull off a good single player campaign, but at least with BC you made it trundle along nicely...
I'm sure about 3% of your audience will stand in front of the screen shouting hoo'ah, the other 97% might find that slightly embarassing...

In MP (BC2 at least):
Because the maps were tailored to a particular mode of play, Rush for some maps, Conquest for others...Rush maps should not be a huge square (like BF3 Caspian Border), they should have natural chokepoints which aren't 3 feet wide or in a tunnel (like BF3 Damavand Peak)...

Although all BC2 matches had lone wolves to some extent it was mitigated by not showing the K/D ratio on the scoreboard...If you remove the bragging rights for them they behave less like asshats...

Free map packs and no elite black knife DLC would help...

Oh and stop making us download the DLC to play the game even if we have no intention of buying it!
30 GB of data just to have a quick match on the same damn maps that came on the 6 odd GB disc is taking the piss...

Most importantly of all though (even though I love BC2) stop talking about Bad Company, Hardline and most of all DLC when some people can't even play BF4! Make sure the games are as bug free as can be before releasing them and fix whatever bugs appear before talking about future projects...

Thanks...

Can an AI win a game jam?

AcidSnake

4 years ago

Audience modelling is something I've seen explored in related research, where a piece of software like ANGELINA tries to understand who it is making the software for
That's very interesting...Trying to understand who it is making software for means you wouldn't be specifying the target audience as a parameter, but rather the AI should figure that out themselves...The AI would have to profile the audience based on whatever input it is given?

So what parameters are typically passed to ANGELINA? The article mentions a theme, so basically a string?
What about game type (3D maze 2D platformer), is that passed as a parameter or something ANGELINA is allowed to figure out for itself?

The interesting thing there is that if a theme is given as a string it could in theory also work in tandem with Dan Ventura's tool (mentioned in the sidebar) and extract a string and thus a theme from an image?

So something like show ANGELINA a famous painting and it'll create a game around it?

I'd rather ANGELINA developed a sense of what it felt was acceptable to post (perhaps by testing it on various users and getting their feedback)!
If you mean that ANGELINA itself should evaluate the feedback it would be a risky proposition...Knowing the internet adding swearwords and inappropriate content would net positive feedback...

Though the idea of evolution linked with user feedback could make the process faster, even though less and less risks would be taken...

Shadow of the Eternals relaunches Kickstarter campaign, ditches episodic format

The problem was never the idea of a successor to ED, the problem was who wanted to make it (a new name studio), one of the execs behind it (Dyack) and the stupid amount of money just to get started...

They've solved one of those problems and they think they'll get there now?

Also, the stretch goal is funny as they'll be needing that extra cash to fend off Nintendo's lawyers if the Sanity Meter and its effects ever go near the PS4...

Monaco dev laments "disappointing" Xbox sales

AcidSnake

5 years ago

The player base is quite sparse indeed, when trying to find a multiplayer game the same names keep popping up...

It's a wonderful game though and it gets better for every extra player that joins...

There are some things that could have been improved without a doubt...
Drop in multiplayer would have been great, also maybe making some of the classes have better defined perks would make them more useful like the Mole's hidden ability to crack glass cases faster than the others...

And although it might be confusing at first it's just a matter of learning their internal logic...After that it's never a case of the game being unfair...
The tiles you can't step on for instance are the red ones with a border around them...
