The bigger the enemy, the less interesting it is to fight.
Have I missed it or is this never expanded on in the Review and only mentioned in the caption?
I've read through and the Review seems to praise the combat, and the enemies you come up against, who I imagine are all large in stature being a God of War game, so what's meant by this? Feel like I've missed something here

Don't gush: why the vision of Mirror's Edge Catalyst makes it a modern great

theguy

3 weeks ago

Fitting, given I'm playing through this right now. It's full of bad video game design and baffling decisions that suggest those leading don't really understand Mirrors Edge. Can't really call it very enjoyable, the only thing it really does right is stuff it apes from the first game.

@martinsmith Yeah, I could do with most of the other stuff, but viewing recent articles has become a lot more cumbersome. That "Show more articles" button should probably load more on the same page.
Oh, and no more thumbnails next to articles?

Edit: Honestly after using it a bit more I can't say I really like it. Lot of wasted space, don't really think the Author tag needs to be the first thing on every article and the Latest feed shows so little now. Also articles not being more centred like they used to be is throwing me a bit.

Epic reveals latest roadmap and feature goals for next few months of Fortnite development

theguy

@gabloammar Glad you shared this. It's one of the things I was pretty disappointed to read, since I thought skill based matchmaking sort of goes against the point of a Battle Royale game. Nice to see others feel similarly and could perhaps convince Epic to not go through with it

Street Fighter 5 Arcade Edition review

theguy

3 months ago

@Jaz666 I'm honestly not sure where people ever got the impression that earning Fight Money was only possible online. You only get 50FM for a Win online, a character costs 100k. :o
Before Arcade Edition, the best ways to earn Fight Money was the single player content. Character stories, trials, the main story mode, stuff like that. You could have earned roughly around 800k doing those, which is 8 characters. You have to be connected to the Internet to earn the Fight Money, but they're not really online modes.

Now with the release of Arcade Edition, Capcom has removed a lot of these ways of earning Fight Money. You still get Fight Money for levelling up Characters, which you can do through these single player modes and online, but it isn't as much and it's now much harder to earn Fight Money than it was before (though you do have more characters available to earn money with if you buy AE).

I am enjoying AE though. I'm pretty annoyed I didn't earn a bit more Fight Money before it released but oh well. I've got to say I don't really like the Arcade mode that much though. A couple of AI battles, which are pretty well done with all the different stages but they're just stage after stage, with long loading times and nothing story related until the very end, where you get 1 art piece. It doesn't really feel worth it, would have been nice if you got some Fight Money for completing it. Arcade modes of old had intros, rival battles and outros, preferred it that way.

After Star Wars Battlefront 2, EA changes Need for Speed Payback loot crates, progression

theguy

Has Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 also changed in light of this? I launched it today and the way sticker packs are handled is different, a change for the better.

I'm not sure when exactly this happened though because I haven't played it in a while

EA has shut down Visceral Games

theguy

6 months ago

This is really just sad. Dead Space 1 and 2 were fantastic games, with 2 probably being one of my highlights from last gen. EG covered what went wrong with 3, and it seems like the studio never really found its footing since. Reminds me of Lionhead, sort of. Great studios with quality titles just disappearing.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 has a loot crate problem

theguy

7 months ago

Am I wrong in saying this sounds a bit like the other EA Shooter, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2?
You can only unlock characters and abilities through "sticker packs" which contain 7 or so random items. It is achievable without forking out extra, but you'd really have to play quite a lot if you did want everything. I imagine the one in place in Battlefield is even more of a grind though, since PVZ is a more "casual" game

I mean, that's hardly a redesigned interface, is it? I hope this breathes new life into the game, but I'll be slightly bitter if launch SFV players don't get a little extra.
Anyone buying this version gets a sweet deal, I only have 2 of the DLC characters and didn't think an edition like this would be coming.

Would be nice if they gave some characters or significant fight money to those who've had the game since launch, since this is practically a rerelease which I thought they wouldn't be doing. This version contains all the characters so far, I've only got 2 of the DLC ones

@daver Something sounds off. It shouldn't be taking that long even if the netcode on SFV is a bit poor, unless your internet itself isn't very strong.

They are going to roll out a new CFN soon, that might help with those problems.

This is one remaster I'd actually be interested in, but that trailer didn't do much for me at all. There doesn't really seem to be a significant enough improvement whatsoever to warrant a purchase and the lack of Multiplayer hurts it I think, especially considering they've completely canned the mode going forward when it was a ton of fun
