I'm super glad it was not. At the 40 dollar PC price tag, I thought this was a perfect buy. Although I've found many FTP games to be enjoyable, I absolutely hate not having an option of just dropping a set amount to have everything in the game. As someone who finds the limits of an FTP game frustrating, this is exactly what I wanted. That said, they can always add extra stuff on top for microtransactions, which I'm pretty sure they will.
I know what you are getting at and I'm not really defending the guy specifically, but these kind of "if you don't like it or aren't interested why are you here" argument gets kind of old. I've read and watched plenty of articles and videos based on things I'm not necessarily into, but I'm curious enough to hear what's up or what someones opinion on something is. Maybe he came here looking for a different perspective seeing as it's a high profile game...
This was basically my thought as well. Not a huge amount has been said and for the most part they have put their money where their mouth is on showing what they have discussed. They haven't given much detail on how trading and the economy work in game yet, but the game isn't coming out tomorrow and I feel like they are simply holding onto that for future demos.
In support of what you have said, I think it's worth stating that people need to keep their expectations in check and not let their imaginations run away from them. The devs haven't really said much to inflate the hype train. They have simply shown the game bits at a time, and still have time before release to demonstrate features. They have been up front with saying what the game basically is in my opinion. Some people seem to be running a bit far with that.
I will never understand the inability to to comprehend that sometimes a game simply evolves over the time of it's development. As a game adapts to hardware and gets optimized, you are possibly going to see some graphical details change. It can be disapointing, sure, but so many people seem to rage over the mere thought and always jump to the conclusion "the developer was trying to trick us!"
I'm not saying it's not worth discussing or writing an article...
Honestly, I was all for the changes they were making. I was willing to acknowledge the faults of the originals and had no issue with them tweaking the game. However, this card loadout thing doesn't sound appealing at all so far.
I would absolutely love a new Motorstorm, though it's probably unlikely.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seemed to me that they kind of advertised it as a sim though. If the game isn't trying to be a sim, they certainly fooled me with their marketing. Like I said, i'm glad people are having fun, I don't want any game to suck, I'm just surprised to find a pocket of such enthusiastic praise as I've seen very little of it elsewhere.
I'm honestly surprised after coming into this post to see so many positive comments about the game. Everything I've been hearing was saying it was poorly received and lacked features.
Glad someone is out there enjoying it I guess.
Weren't they taking ideas for a new Anachronox game a few months back? I believe that was an old Eidos property, so SE would own that.
I know little about the game beyond that it was well liked by those who actually played it.
I'm super excited to see what can be done with VR. That said, I refuse to truly get my hopes up until I see that something truly unique can be done with the new tech that isn't just some little demo.
Can't wait to wield gaming's largest "short sword"
A top news story with no comments?
Now is my chance for glory!
Am I the only one that found the guy in the middles' complaints about the uplink and Y wings to be kind of useless and nit picky. It's a game mode, man. Sure, the uplink could probably be contextualized better, but did the y wings doing only one run bother you so much? It's a game mechanic.
Am I the only one around here that cares far more about whether or not the game simply performs well and is fun to play than whether or not the actual in game graphics are EXACTLY the same as the trailer? It would be super awesome if they pull it off, but I rather have a solid frame rate and a fun game. If they have o compromise to accomplish that, then so be it. It's a disappointment but, dear god people, it's not the end of the world.
Yeah, it would be nice if they...
Seems pretty straightforward to me. It won't have the old instant action mode, but they are making a mode that provides one off scenarios you play with bots. It sounds like they aren't just multiplayer matches with bots, but something a little different. Any details beyond that they simply aren't talking about yet. Give it some time and they will reveal more.
What they showed of Watch Dogs wasn't "fake." They had to back off on the graphics due to time, money, and system resources. Remember, that game had to function on EVERY console that existed at the time. They showed a target and then eventually had to compromise due to whatever factors contributed to the decision at the time. They didn't show that original video with the intention that they would purposely dial back everything.
I don't think any of those...
I'm not commenting on whether or not the game will look that good, but not showing gameplay this early can come from a lot of different factors.
The game press who were shown the game behind closed doors are much more understanding of the idea that a game is unfinished. If certain aspects of the game are clunky, they are much more forgiving than the general public. It simply may not be what they want to show the general gaming public yet.
On top of that,...
they have said they are targeting 60FPS, but that statement does leave open the possibility that they wont hit it.
Personally I would prefer them to go for frames over graphics, but if they can at least get a stable 30 than it will at least be a solidly playable game.
Here is to hoping they can pull it off.
