Elite Dangerous players accuse Frontier of "god modding"

glottis0

2 years ago

I think this article is actually quite out of date, since the players that originally caused the problem found a new way to shut down the station, by "UA Bombing" it by delivering mysterious alien nonsense to the station.

This has stood and FD aren't changing it.

@SpaceMonkey77

I wouldn't have had a problem with him having a daughter instead of a son - but I think the trailer scene would/should have looked exactly the same, since killing is all that Kratos has to teach. Gender identity would be moot since it's irrelevant to stylishly murdering monsters.

It's been like 10 years now. Can everyone please stop failing to see the point of God of War franchise? He's teaching his son to kill because that is all he knows how to do. It's supposed to be tragic, not heartwarming.

Edit - I should probably expand on what I believe "the point" of the God of War franchise is. The message I got was violence and revenge are fucking satisfying but ultimately don't achieve anything in the longterm and just leave you feeling hollow and regretful. If you start down the path of solving everything with killing, you close off all other options and that's the only move you can make.

After children rack up huge bills, UK government announces investigation into "aggressive" in-app purchases

@DiamondIce - yes, they have a compulsory password entry for purchases which (as far as I've tried) can't be disabled.

The 'parental controls' aren't even necessary on iOS - just don't give kids your password.

Saying "I gave them the password because they said the game was 1" is like saying you gave them the pin to your credit card to buy a sandwich and moaning when they use it to buy a 300 Lego Deathstar.

Grand Theft Auto 5 PC fan petition reaches 45k votes

They should Kickstarter PC versions. Simple reward structure - pay 30 and get a copy of the game when it's done. That way, they can trust the petition numbers and have nothing to lose by making it.

Or maybe I'm missing something...I'm dumb at business.

Dishonored's Corvo used to sure look a lot like Thief's Garrett

glottis0

6 years ago

The last paragraph is the most important part really - this is important for marketing and for getting a general feel for the character...but the player really doesn't see any of this. In fact, the fact that you can imagine Corvo just as easily as a ruthless assassin or a careful pacifist is kind of essential to the gameplay.

Dark Souls PC mod modded to enable 60fps

6 years ago

I'm a big PC gamer and I do love a good PC-optimised game (I spent all my money on a Nividia 590 just for playing Witcher 2 and Battlefield 3 at loony resolutions), BUT Dark Souls is still the best game I've played in a decade.

Moaning about how the port could've been better is like getting a blowjob from Christina Hendricks and moaning that she could've done a titty-wank.

PC strategy game Endless Space given release date

glottis0

6 years ago

@SClaw - it plays a lot differently. This is an 'old-fashioned' turn-based 4X game, whereas Sins was a (IMHO very successful) attempt to liven up the formula by doing everything in realtime.

Endless Space (at alpha anyway) plays a lot like a Total War game but in space, only with less involved combat. That said, it's rather compelling and slick...worth keeping an eye on if nerdy strategy games are your cup of tea :D

@artibeus - I've been getting into dubstep recently. I previously shunned most Dance music because I found it too simplistic and repetitive but there's something interesting about some of this stuff (like Skrillex and Kill the Noise). I'm 28 and I'm more likely to be playing Shadow of the Colossus than COD...so either I'm the exception that proves the rule, or you're a bit off the mark.

SoulCalibur 5 DLC revealed

6 years ago

Guys - day one DLC is not necessarily greed or a rip-off. Where is it written in your book of cosmic entitlement that paying 35 gives you the right to play anything a company has worked on in the last 4 years? You decide when you buy a game whether the content is worth the money, and then when DLC is released, again you decide if that content is worth the money...
Do you also complain when you have to pay extra to get Aircon or CD Multichangers in your new car, even though they were already designed and the fittings are already present in the vanilla model?

It's interesting to see how different the trailer is for Japan - in the West trailers are usually all BLAMMO FIREBALL WOLF-FACE HAMMER-SMASH DRAGONSSS!!! ...and yet this focusses on the environment, conversations and artificial-life stuff with a kind of swelling epic-ness. I think it much better captures the things I like about Elder Scrolls, and Skyrim in particular.

This is the reason why I go through all the hassle of maintaining a gaming PC. Batman, Battlefield 3, Assassin's Creed, Skyrim, Space Marine - all at 60fps with higher resolution and better anti-aliasing than their console counterparts. You can play with a TV/360 pad too.

Of course PC doesn't help one jot with all the awesome PS3 exclusives... :S

@Inmediasress - they're not scared to get a demo out, you lunatic. They're trying to finish a game, and distracting themselves with the conundrum of how to scale a completely open-world game into a 20-minute sample is not exactly going to help.

Hype and love for the franchise has already secured this enough day-one sales - I imagine Bethesda are in no rush for a demo.
