Todd Howard revealed some new info on Starfield today. It has more 'hooks' than Skyrim to keep you playing and has more hardcore RPG elements, too.
if i have to worry about oxygen supply like some survival rpg thingy then i'm out.
Unlikely, I'd say.
People are getting more and more complacent when it comes to games. People want less mechanics, and more shooty shooty.
Ted I'm sure you complained about botw having weapons that break on you. A crappy useless game mechanic gets criticism from me regardless of who is making it.
I don't know that's the case
Having oxygen run out on you is just annoying. No Man's Sky had crap like that and it sucked really bad. Nothing worse than being in the middle of something then needing to stop so you can go perform maintenance on your environmental suit.
The massive rise in survival based games says otherwise.
@Phoenix Haven't even played BoTW, actually. Though I did enjoy the extra mechanics had in games like Metro, and thought it added tone a d atmosphere to the experience.
I wouldn't say that. I think there is a broad number of gamers that want things easy, for sure. But these kinds of hardcore RPG games are becoming less and less. So, I think there is a market for a large budget hardcore RPG. As a first party studio now, MS/Bethesda should not be doing generic games that everyone else is doing. They should be pushing the envelope and providing more game diversity to the XB lineup. That may not appeal to everyone, but I think that is what brings success to a console.
yes stuff like that and timed mechanics puts me completely its simply not fun.
It seems like having a "survival mode" that included this mechanic and others like it would resolve the issue. That way it isn't forced on everyone, but it's there for those who want to do a hardcore run.
Jeece that is a great idea
15xs more hooks...
Give it a rest.
Don't mention it. You are welcome.
You want him to give it a rest because it just works right? Lol
Easier said when Todd & Bethesda knows what the gameplay looks like. All was shown was a cgi video of people in a ship & then someone walking to the cockpit of a ship to prepare a takeoff & that was it. LOL!
It actually wasn’t cgi
Okay..if you think so.
Hard to believe the game was in development for years and they show that with no gameplay.
It was stated at the start of the trailer that it was alpha in-engine footage. Besides that you can tell it wasn't pre-rendered just by looking at it. The visuals were nothing mindblowing. After seeing UE5 and Horizon 2 I don't see why you'd think these graphics aren't possible.
Digital Foundry confirmed that it wasn't CGI do to the raytracing aspect of the trailer.
The fact that you think it was cgi speaks volumes
Seems like a bite on that Star Citizen games popularity.. if this ends up anything else like Bethesda's other releases though probably bug infested, maybe not though with a new engine.. time will tell guess we just gotta wait.....
Can't wait to play this 2 years after realise once all the bugs are fixed.
2 years? That's being way too generous, Skyrim has been out 10? years now and is still riddled with glitches and bugs (including quest breaking ones).
Yet everyone plays that game because it's massive and epic with lore
You'll be playing it on an Xbox platform...
It just works.
Yeah, these lies seem very familiar.
I consider myself quite hardcore and this is my genre, but I agree that constantly having to manage the minutia of survival like oxygen can become a bit of a chore.Not that breathing is a minor detail, but you know what I mean. However, if there are ways of mitigating that sort of thing as your character develops. Well, that would be okay.
Day 1. Idc. I have to get an Xbox too. Also dc.
I'll be surely playing this on Xcloud via gamepass when it comes out. I'm guessing it'll be available day one like all the other first party MS titles. To be honest, I'm super happy that MS offers a streaming option for an incredibly low price! even if you're a Switch/PS fan, MS gave us an easy an accessible way to access their games. I don't plan on buying an Xbox (PC would be nice, when the GPU are available...), so this cloud-model makes it that they can make revenue with a player base that wouldn't do so otherwise. I wouldn't bother with competitive games, but singleplayer experiences are more than playable on the cloud. Any fanboy of other consoles should seriously consider using their service for some of the most wanted titles (starfield, TES 6, etc.). Very cheap and easily accessible!
Cool advert bro 🙄
Anything being compared to skyrim, im buying.
After 76 and 2077 I'll be waiting to see if there is an actual rpg in there. Of course I have game pass so I don't have to worry about preorders or reviews but I'm sick of main brand rpg companies bringing half empty glitched worlds to the table.
Man I hope this game is good - im very intrigued. Had no serious plans to buy an Xbox, but some of these RPGs could change that
I still don't get what the games suppose to be
I'm not convinced Todd Howard knows either......
there is clearly a whole interview about it that explains alot from todd himself thats posted all over https://www.reddit.com/r/St...
@oeazy305 That man Todd Howard has said plenty in the past that hasn't come to fruition. Words are meaningless....show the game in action.
Bethesda has not made a decent game since Skyrim. I am not expecting much, prove me wrong Bethesda.
looking forward to this game
