Turok Propoganda: The A.I. System Plus 2 New Screens

The studio vice president and general manager waxes fantastic about dino-hunting behavior.

"Time moves so quickly. Over the past 18 months we founded Propaganda Games here in Vancouver and brought together an amazing team of veteran talent to help revive a classic gaming franchise (Turok). With each month of the production, it seems like time continues to speed up. It feels like we were just at E3, but that was months ago. Since then we've attended the Games Convention in Leipzig, seen E3 get cancelled, and made a ton of improvements to the game.

Right now things are incredibly busy around here and the team is working hard on a number of fronts. We've got a big milestone coming up: we're trying to prove out a continuous thread of gameplay that combines various situations of dino-combat and human-combat leading into a rail-shooting chase sequence, a mini-boss battle and finally a battle on a massive scale with both enemies and companions involved.

Uh, it's a lot.

The number of systems that need to come together to make this happen are staggering. Beyond just getting this section functional in the game, we're trying to polish the experience to make it really fun to play, which is always a challenge while the core of the gameplay is still in development.

One of the most important parts of the game that we're working is the AI, and that's what I'm going to focus my attention on at this time. Building great AI is a challenge for any game, but our plans are especially ambitious for Turok. We have a huge variety of different creatures and characters in the game, all of whom require very different AI behaviors...."

PoE: Deadfire, Unless you have a or PS5 or an SSD don't bother, loading times are insane. A minute and a half to go into a room to investigate a desk in an inn and then an additional 1 1/2 minutes to leave the room and then load to leave the inn???

And they never fixed it.

Definitely don’t start your Final Fantasy VII experience with Rebirth

Start at the beginning.

Well that's how it should be, but too many now buy sequels rather than starting at the beginning. That's why more sequels now have no mention of the previous game.

SDuck14h ago

I already used to do that back in the day. Bought both God of War 2 and FFXIII-2 without knowing anything about their prequels

Too many people need to be told this anymore... it really blows my mind.

GoodGuy0913h ago

Square didn't name it Remake 2 to maximize sales anyways lol

jznrpg12h ago

Yes play the first game it’s really good

SegaSaturn66912h ago

The first game was so bad i couldn't finish it. Endless fetching, nonsense additions, etc. Cool visualization of Midgar, but it's all filler.

Snookies1211h ago

"Endless fetching" - Don't do the side quests then, they do kind of suck.
"nonsense additions" - Most of the additions are actually very welcome to some parts that NEEDED fleshing out.
"it's all filler" - That isn't even the least bit true...

There were some lacking moments in Remake, and some odd choices at times I'll give you that. Trying to say the game was "bad" though is very far off the mark. It's a fantastic game.

RonnySins9h ago

Bad my a**. As for the fetching quests, don't do them. Simple.

NukeDaHippies8h ago

absolutely true. i coulda still accepted the less desirable stuff if the story didn't shit the bed in the last hour

Rebel_Scum11h ago

Yeah hard disagree on this. If you skip remake you wont miss out on anything. The story truly kicks off when you leave Midgar.

Snookies1211h ago

The heck do you mean? You will miss out on EVERYTHING if you skipped Remake, lol. Who the hell goes into a story driven series without playing the first part of it? There's absolutely no point in jumping on mid-way through something like that. You'd have no context for any characters or their relationships, nor their goals or plot of the series as a whole.

Rebel_Scum9h ago

Just watch the story catch up video in Rebirth. Remake just wasnt a good game.

To anyone new to FFVII I’d suggest the play the original then rebirth.

Square Enix Terminates 10,000 FFXIV Accounts Due to RMT

ESTNN writes: "On the eve of FFXIV's highly-anticipated Final Fantasy 15 collaboration event, the developers issued a statement on the game's official forum about the latest wave of player bans."

jznrpg22h ago

RMT ruins the economy for people who aren’t paying for in game money. Prices sky rocket for items. They really need to come up with a system that prevents in game money/item sales and still be able to trade items. I’m sure it can be done but the cost to do it is the issue.

SegaSaturn66922h ago

One thing I do to combat this is not play.
