Why I Hate… Achievements

Cider-X

7 years ago

"I've never seen Gamerscores as anything other than arbitrary numbers. And I'm starting to care less and less about my record of so-called Achievements."

Then why write a 2 page article about it?

Same old complaints about achievements. If you don't like them just ignore them. You can even turn off the notifications. Personally I find some achievements are fun to try to obtain, some are horrible. But if you keep obsessing about the horrible ones of course you are gonna turn sour on the whole thing.
Either way, achievements are here to stay. You can find them everywhere these days: On the 360, iPhone games, Steam, PS3 and even on gaming websites.

Alpha Protocol will only live once

Cider-X

8 years ago

I find it hard to believe thet people are so shocked by this decision.

Alpha Protocol was late, unpolished as hell (texture pop-in when choosing guns/armor comes to mind) and clunky. Sure it had a decent story, a great "consequence" system with cool perks thrown in and passable voice acting.
What let it down was the actual action and missions. Many of the maps felt like they were designed by amateurs in an unofficial map editor. Never before have I seen such horrible layouts in a game.
The shooting (rolling of dice) was poor and the stealth was poor, there's no way around it. It was also horribly marketed by Sega (as always) and since the game makes an ABSOLUTELY terrible first impression, all the video quick looks on the internet with game journalists laughing at the buggy and over the top ragdoll effects as they die did not do the game any favors at all.

Finally, what I think turned so many people off it was the fact that it had been delayed 2 times and it was still so damn clunky. The average gamer is not as forgiving as, say, many posters on this site are. They've been accustomed to sleek presentation and game mechanics this gen, both things totally lacking in Alpha Protocol.
A shame really, I could go for another adventure with Mr. Thorton but it's not the end of the world.

I'm not surprised considering the awful awful in-game videos they've shown. It's painfully obvious that the developers don't hace access to the Capcom Framework engine. This looks like a trainwreck, but I'm still hoping they will come through with this.

Maguire: People will buy 3D content

Cider-X

8 years ago

People who bought iPads are hipsters who want to hang out with their fellow geek friends in coffee shops with their gadgets. They can't bring their 3d tvs to these shops and they don't give a flying f*** about 3d gaming. Much like the rest of us really... 3D gaming is dead before it's even out. Good riddance.

Tech Analysis: Alan Wake

Cider-X

8 years ago

While I don't care much for PC gaming anymore, this is one title I would liked to have seen a PC version of. The opening boat-ride to the small town looks epic in scale but the 360 visuals are really really blurry. I'm not a "pixel counting" guy but it was obvious even to me that this runs at lower res than 720p.

Other impressions after having completed 4 chapters:

-As I said, the game looks blurry to me
-Lightning effects are stunningly brilliant
-Tearing is evident but it's not horrible.
-Characters' faces look freaky and much worse than say Uncharted 2
-Shooting feels very tight and satisfying
-Many places in the game during daytime feel like they were once part of an open-world game.
-Sound effects are great, especially during nighttime
-Amount of ammo, weapons and batteries is very nicely balanced
-Story is so-so, voice acting ranges from ok to poor.
-Repetition sets in around the middle of chapter 3 (for me at least)
-Eurogamer review is mostly spot on. 7/10

Wasn't impressed with the demo at all, and got a chance to play a few hours of co op yesterday. Game is clunky and uneven.. the frame-rate drop into the low 10s when the action heats up and lots of enemies attack... No thanks Ubi.

Haven't heard any complaints about this bug until now.
Decent but flawed game indeed. Completed the xbox360 version last night and they clearly ran out of either time or money in the end... Also the framerate when playing 4 player co op is atrocious at times. They should try to fix these problems before talking up new DLC already.
