A UK indie team are developing a battle royale game four times the size of PUBGA UK indie team are developing a battle royale game four times the size of PUBG

It's not that much longer. If everyone kills somebody every 5 mins, than the games will only take 10 mins longer. (Not being a PUGB player, I don't know how realistic that is, but it is still only 2 kill-generations until you are down from 400 to 100.

I'm all for Valve giving up a piece of their cut if it makes them concentrate on earning money by making games. *whispers* Left 4 Dead 3, Left 4 Dead 3.....

I wonder what the community would produce if given the tools to make Overreach cinematics, eh? Someone had better give pronhub a heads up when it happens.

Technically, you're paying for a load of loot from the store. They aren't charging you money for early access to a free game (per se).

Can you play without this purchase? No , ergo you are paying for the game.

No mention of Wolfenstein? That's an SP FPS.

Apart from that, great interview. They are both pretty much elder statesmen of gaming.

Thank God, DA is seeing another game (I'm assuming it's not a DA Tactics game).Reply

They should have just let it die after Inquisition. I bet he is writing great quest about collecting all the crystals you find ;P

They are still working within the game's rules though, even if they are unintended. (I agree with you that cheating should invalidate a speed run, though. If they had used a cheat code instead of the recycling glitch, I'd be dismissing this, too.)

I'm pretty certain that "real" cheating does indeed invalidate a speed run. I'm not saying that speed runs are dumb and I know that exploiting the game (even glitches) are allowed. I just don't enjoy those kind of runs.

Considering they are the ones who did the work to put the modding tools in the game, I don't that has anything to do with it.

Modding tools or QA tools?

Scary and unknown. The first time a Sectopod unfolds over you, or a Gatekeeper lets off a shot is like the first time you saw a Blaster Bomb explosion from the first game (the one with the hyphen).

Exactly. And I think Bioware are suffering from butting up against the Uncanny Valley. I'm also very interested to see what CDProject are doing for Cyberpunk 2077. They are the only other people I can think of that are doing facial animation at this detail and frequency.

Agreed -- but their mistake was not grappling with it.

Chime review snippet How good is the Chime soundtrack?
It's a music game, so it needs to have a good soundtrack that works with the gameplay., and it does.
