CD Projekt tackles The Witcher 3 downgrade issue head on

Quint2020

3 years ago

Gamers will bitch about anything these days, it's a great game, it's a great looking game, what's the problem?

"Oh it doesn't look the same as very early screenshots or gameplay videos!!!", no fucking shit, it's the same with any game, the reality of features that require implementing running on varied platforms always drags it down, when they showed that early video they were what 20% in to development? This is fucking ridiculous.

Grim Fandango Remastered review

Quint2020

3 years ago

I loved adventure games as a kid (DOTT and Full Throttle are some of my all time favorite games, you just can't beat that Schafer sense of style/humour) but for some reason never got round to playing this the first time...

Thankfully I'm just about to build myself a new PC so this will be going straight on the Steam Wish List!

Sacred 3 review

Quint2020

I really enjoyed Sacred 2 on the 360, a little rough around the edges but an enjoyable free roaming action RPG with very deep character customisation... Sounds like they've removed everything that made it's predecessor enjoyable.

Seeing Red: The story of CD Projekt

Quint2020

I absolutely love this Developer, a true underdog story.

Getting the studio off the ground and making games at the level these guys do would not have been easy anywhere in the world but the fact they did it in Poland, particularly those early years must have been a huge challenge.

Probably one of the most deserving studios of any gamers hard earned cash.

He's written some damn good comics, it would make sense if they were putting him on writing duties for some first party titles, sounds more like he's being bought in as some kind of consultant though.... weird.

Spec analysis: Durango vs. Orbis

Quint2020

5 years ago

All of this is pointless until the actual machines are out, the PS3 looked more powerful on paper but the 360 outperformed it on most multi-platform games this whole generation.

Though it does seem that Sony are more focused on actual games than MS, it'll be interesting to see both companies' long-term plans.

Dayum.... I've not been keeping track on this game really but have been quietly looking forward to it's release as it's a Gearbox game and well.... it's Aliens.

It adds to the storyline and the character development of both the player character and the romanceable NPC... If it's done well that is (See Baldur's Gate II).

Quint2020

Very uninterested in this, that's not really a comment against 343 though, I felt the same about Reach, "it's Halo, I've played that before.... a lot" tends to be my feeling about this franchise now and this is coming from someone who loved the first trilogy as well as ODST.

Saturday Soapbox: Let the good times role

Quint2020

6 years ago

I love games with a strong story and characters and the old Infinity Engine titles delivered that in spades, the way companions interacted with you and reacted to your choices made those games so immersive and believable and in my opinion that aspect of the games has never been bettered by contemporary titles.

I'm so thankful developers have realised there is still a large market for games like this and that crowd-funding is the perfect way to get them made, no publisher sticking their oar in trying to make it entertaining to the kind of people who sit in front of Call of Duty multiplayer for days at a time.

I'm really hopeful that Kickstarter will get us to a point where more niche titles can get made how the fans and the developers want without having to compromise on complexity and depth in an attempt to appeal to everyone.

I can't even begin to explain how excited I am for this, Dragon Age was supposed to be the game that FINALLY bought me back to titles like Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale but frankly it failed spectacularly.

I love games with a strong story and characters and the old Infinity Engine titles delivered that in spades, the way companions interacted and reacted to you and your choices made those games so immersive and believable.

I'm so thankful the guys at Obsidian have realised there is still a large market for games like this and that crowd-funding is the perfect way to get a game like this made, no publisher sticking their oar in trying to make it entertaining to the kind of people who sit in front of Call of Duty multiplayer for days at a time.

Quint2020

I have a lot of respect for Techland, I've been a fan of theirs since the original (and best!) Call of Juarez, while none of their releases have been perfect I think their engine is an impressive piece of tech and you can tell the games are made by people who love games.

Still need to play Dead Island but perhaps I'll wait for this Game of The Year Edition?
