No longer will my inventory space be taken up by slightly modified pipe pistols.

Fallout 4 could do with a proper Hardcore Mode

Zaiz

THe ammo balance in FO4 is terrible, if you play an automatics-mostly run, you'll run into constant ammo issues. If you run single-shot weapons, you'll have far more ammo than you'll ever need, ever. If you run melee, you'll be stumping down healing stuff while selling ammo for millions.

@brider
They said no paid microtransactions, which they breached.

AS for DLC, the game has been supported by DLC from the start but it hasn't split the community. DLC owners only get exclusive guns and the ability to host DLC heists. The community is capable of playing all heist content revealed thus far.

Star Citizen soars past $100m as alpha 2.0 launches

Zaiz

2 years ago

@tiddex

It is a huge problem. World of Tanks has struggled with it for ages, and mostly they've had to resort to taking overpowered premium tanks off the market and severely buffing other underperforming tanks as a way of saying sorry.

Meanwhile in Star Citizen an unknown amount of grinding will give you any ship in the game, but some people are paying a few thousand dollars for the chance of owning a larger ship...or a rare ship from the SC grey trading market...and all this stuff can be lost permanently if, say, their ingame insurance lapses(bought with ingame money) and it gets destroyed.

Etc.

That gameplay vid is a series of cringes. I've never understood why anyone works together in games like these without there being a risk to actually, you know, shooting them. Obviously the helicopter doesn't give a shit that there was a small massacre right beneath it.

The best part is definitely early access to resource and customization packs. If you preorder, you get to pay for bonus resources(a cheat) and customization(pretty much pointless) content before anyone else!

EA defends Star Wars Battlefront sales after GameStop claims launch "underperformed"

Zaiz

2 years ago

The lack of singleplayer killed Battlefront. The original Battlefronts had an Alleged Singleplayer but the game was stupid amounts of fun with bots anyways so you didn't need to go online in the first place!

The launch window for Battlefront was also extremely poorly thought out. A lot of games launched in a similar window to Fallout 4 and Call of Duty. That's not wise, I think a lot of people underestimated how popular Bethesda games are, given that every single time Skyrim goes on sale, it still hits Steam's top seller list.

I don't see the motion blur thing as a minus. I turn off motion blur so often because the effect is always extremely exaggerated in games. If bethesda went subtle, that's only a good thing.

Unusually, the law of headlines doesn't apply here.

Yes, Blizzard will be selling additional characters. Probably 4.99 a pop, with paid-for skins. My interest for this game waned hard when I saw it was a full price release, because it has the perfect structure to be an F2P game. When box sales slow down, you can expect it to go full F2P.

In the USA there are extremely extensive laws protecting Golden and Bald Eagles. I guess this must be some poor misused zoo bird?

Performance Analysis: Mad Max

Zaiz

@masseffectman
PC coverage is pretty repetitive if it isn't broken. You've got two options(other than broken):

A) PC demonstrates extra effects at a higher framerate and higher resolution than console, depending on your PC.

B) PC version is a workable port with few graphics options and looks like the console versions.

I can't blame DF for skimping on it because these articles serve just to tell you what to expect and what system to buy it on, if you have more than one.

Wargaming is on the record that Russia is only in the game because they want their Russian playerbase to actually play it.

Otherwise, most of the Russian tree is composed of ships built later and blueprints that would have never seen the light of day because Russia just didn't have the metallurgy to make the designs effective, armored fighting ships.

It is extremely unfortunate that CA finally got the license to make a Warhammer game when Games Workshop just dropped Fantasy for Age of Sigmar.

Duke Nukem Forever was only forgivable if you managed to miss the other comical, bright and violent shooters that had come out both before and after it. Bulletstorm was significantly better. I hear Shadow Warrior(which I sadly haven't picked up yet) was significantly better.

There is no space anymore for a Duke Nukem game that is anything less than great. There are great games in its genre without the baggage.

The Confederate battle flag in the modern day US is very frequently used by modern day racists as a symbol. There's a reason a lot of people in the US have long tried to get rid of it. It is fine and dandy to go "Oh hey that's just a historic thing", but on this side of the Atlantic it is still used as a symbol of hate.

The mod tools themselves won't launch until a few months after. Creation Kit/GECK were both held back until a few months after release.

I love how the trailer teased every big moment in the game. I really do dislike that they are going with the "suffering sadsack puppy Laura" route again, it was extremely creepy in the first game. I think people can relate to a female character without feeling protective of her.
