PUBG developer debunks accusation maps are "asset flips"

@David_Semperger I've always wondered about this myself. Like, every time I read about racing games creating the same Nissan GTR for the umpteenth time and brag about the hundreds of thousands of polygons and work hours it took to get it right. Why?? It's the same car that's been rendered a thousand times in hundreds of games before! Is it really not possible to just buy these car models from somewhere and apply your own decals to them to separate them from the pack? It all just seems like such a huge waste of time and resources.

@eamonswan So because they made one game (series) in third person view, the expectation is now that all they ever do for the rest of their lives will be third person? Is that your logic here?

@Ivattthestanier He's only controversial on this site, for some reason. To be honest, I thought it discoloured the review of Detroit: Become Human too, to the point of annoyance. "David Cage lacks the wit and intelligence to blah blah" (paraphrased).. I mean, I'm sorry Oli, but I think you lack the wit and intelligence to cast that judgement on David Cage.

@alsoatempaccount This is also my main complaint! I loved the compact look of the former design, seeing all the news of the current day collected without scrolling.

Other than that, it's really pretty now!

Hey, how about you at least report this news, @porkface ? Kind of a big thing for a game to be uased as education, especially when said game has put a lot of effort into historical accuracy.

It would be nice to see a different take on Star Citizen for once. Instead of focusing on the negativity (yes, it is late, we all know that already), how about actually checking out what is there and reviewing that instead? Regurgitating the same "will it ever come out? is it a scam?!" over and over gets old fast.

For example:

Imagine that! Someone who actually had hands-on impressions is not as negative as everyone who has no experience with the game whatsoever!

I understand this article and I get what the author is aiming at, but I'm not sure Skyrim is the best example of this gigantic-miniature world effect. I would rather have used Gothic/Gothic 2. Especially Gothic is a world that feels large but is actually very compact, just because of the brilliance in its design.

World of Warcraft Classic: We ask Blizzard our biggest questions

mkreku

8 months ago

Hmm.. I played a paladin and in vanilla WoW there were both good times and bad times to being a paladin. I played through the closed beta and that was when the paladin was as most fun to play. You had proper attack skills and healing skills and the challenge was to balance your mana pool between them in a fight. Too much offense and you died, too much healing and the fight was endless.

But when they launched the game they changed paladin to a timer based system. No more offense, just a bunch of skills on timers, some up to 1 hour long. Paladin became horribly boring to play. I still persisted for maybe 3 months playing as one before switching to a much more fun rogue build. Then the first expansion hit (some outer space shit) and I quit.

@MR-BUGGLES I remember Mercenaries 2 had this limitation and it completely ruined co-op for me and my friends. We wanted to race from mission to mission (using whatever vehicle available), but if someone was winning a race with too much marginal, the game would reset us closer together. Incredibly annoying. Made the world feel small too.

Elex review

mkreku

8 months ago

I've been playing this for almost a week now and it really is a classic Piranha Bytes game, with all the good and bad that brings.

Elex is a lot like Gothic 3 was supposed to be: gigantic world, lots of things to do and a rather thinly spread story. It's in a much better state than Gothic 3 was when it was released though.

I'm having a blast. The jetpack opens up the game in a way I didn't expect. Exploration has always been fun in all Piranha Bytes games (they build excellent worlds), but the addition of being able to fly short distances brings with it new gameplay revelations. It's just so satisfying to spot that little ledge above you.. and then a little ledge above that.. and so on until you reach some hidden spot with just a single old coin in it. Just a little token that the developers knew you'd find your way there and wanted to acknowledge that. I love those little touches.

Weirdly enough the game world is probably this game's weakest part! It never feels natural like Gothic 3 did. It's too dramatic, too exaggerated, too far from reality. It's probably a concession made to lessen the impact of the jetpack, but still.. it feels like a giant playground and not a world.

I bought the collector's edition ($150..) but I still feel like I'm getting my money's worth. Recommended from me!

@16bitfan I live in Sweden and a store called Elgiganten had a sale on the B6V a few months ago (down to £1280). When I got to the store someone had returned one of the B6V's and Elgiganten had reduced its price even further (to £1068).

They let me check the returned TV and the former owner hadn't even installed the batteries in the remote! It was exactly like brand new so I bought it. Turns out he had only had it for a day and not even unpacked it.

I was lucky.

@abczyx You were paying for hardware (cartridges). When you remove the cost of hardware you get the game's price. C64 used cassettes which were cheap back then, so they are easier to compare to today's games. Game prices have gone up, hardware has gone down.

Check out the prizes from ZZap! 64 from 1987: https://archive.org/details/zzap64-magazine-027

It was somewhere around £8,95-9,95 per game.
