Inquisitor or Necromunda were always in my top WANTs for a 40k game. So much potential there to do something cool and a bit different.

They already made a Battlefleet Gothic game IIRC, though I never actually played it.

This suggests that whatever this mystery game is, it will be in VR. Unless it's actually two different games, with one in VR and another set in the Half-Life/Portal universe.

If you're after some old school Quake analysis, I highly recommend Matthias Worch's retrospective on Beyond Belief, which was an awesome mod released back in the day which recreated the first episode of the game: https://youtu.be/7h3FfKk3Rbw

Interesting insights into how to use the enemies, their placements, architecture of the levels etc.

Biggest WTF is he used Wordpad to align all the textures :o

Nothing like being in the zone on a Quake map.

The rhythm of controlling the armor, the rocket launcher, the quad. Constant motion. Dominating as the UT commentator would put it.

Good times. Apart from the eye-watering phone bills during the early years...

If we take the two components of the final price in that screenshot and subtract them: 92 - 70

We get 22, and applying the discount value * 0.55 we get 12.1 which is rounded down to 12, as we all know - a multiple of 3.

Eurogamer's Game of the Year 2015

Azazel

2 years ago

A great game that I thoroughly enjoyed. It was worth the wait and frankly, the expense - as I bought a PS4 in order to play it.

There are lots of reasons I think it's a special thing; the gameplay, the art direction, the world - but mainly the way they all come together to tell a story in a way that can only really work the way it does, as a game.

Finally, a quote, from Foucault's Pendulum:


Only for you, children of doctrine and learning, have we written this work. Examine this book, ponder the meaning we have dispersed in various places and gathered again; what we have concealed in one place we have disclosed in another, that it may be understood by your wisdom.

Games of 2015 no 5: The Witcher 3

Azazel

2 years ago

@frazzl I'm afraid I have to agree with UncleLou - compared to Soulsborne, controlling Geralt is about as responsive as turning a combine in Farming Simulator. I mean, they had to patch in an alternate control scheme for him!

The games offer completely different things, so it's a bit silly to compare the two directly, and "both are fantastic" is about spot on.

@Gemini4273 yeah, same feeling for me. It's an astonishing game really, but I didn't finish it. The character of the world is incomparable to most other open world RPGs.

Preserving the past: why emulation matters

Azazel

2 years ago

The point about preserving source code is an interesting one. The history of games in terms of the methodologies and architectures used, the increasing complexity (in big budget world in particular) - all of that is part and parcel of the mediums evolution. Id have been good at open sourcing their classic titles, but by and large that element is being lost.
