I still don't get the Mako hatred. Sure, it handles a bit oddly at times, and the jump jets are useless unless the ground is completely flat, but I usually find it a blast to drive.Reply

I kind of miss the Mako, that thing was a tank. It could take a serious beating and drive straight up a mountain when needed. The only time I really have any issues is occasionally we would just be cruising along some relatively flat land, then hit a small bump that would flip the Mako over and completely upside down. I am interested to see how they improved things with the Nomad, but I really hope they do more to fix the terrain and not have those weird flippy bumps.

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City review snippet Do vehicles in Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City handle realistically?
Without mods, even the sport cars lean into corners like monumental land barges. Highly recommend the Realistic Handling mod for EFLC/GTAIV in general. It even works in multiplayer if all players install it.

Freespace 2 was absolutely awesome. Still have the occasional nightmare of destroying a Shivan(?) capital ship and having more warp in and shred my squadron. To this day, I still don't know exactly how to complete that mission.

I'm still craving a new Freelancer, or a refurbished/digital release of the old one more, though.

Few other games have come close to the amount of fun I had with Freelancer, and in that universe. Still boot it up now and again, and it's always just as fun as I remembered.Reply

I want a new Starlancer because I am That Guy.

I would be really happy if they brought the ME3 polished combat and classes to ME1 (and in parts ME2.)

Running console commands to spawn phat lewts is only a little bit less naive than clicking links in emails promising the same, then entering all your information.

I have to give this a try. My favorite part of Witcher 3 was probably how good the cities look, so that should be interesting in first-person.

I think he's taking the game a little too seriously, though, so a break would probably do him good.

Because Molyneux.


Damn, I miss his Black & White and Fable 1 days.

I'll never understand people who hate Fable 2 and Fable 3. It seems like a hipster thing. Hatin' to hate because it's cool. I could understand if it was some ubiquitous, common thing that's everywhere, and it's something that the world is saturated with at the expense of all else. I could understand if it was something that was just overwriting everything else with its popularity, so other things were dying out.


The thing is is that the Fable games (including 2 and 3) were the opposite of that. They always felt like they had an identity to them that was given by their creators, they weren't phoned in. They were delightful in that they knew what they wanted to be. It was a rebellious stubbornness that kept them going, they're like video game punks. They didn't care that they weren't commonplace or that they didn't have massive mainstream appeal. They were what they were. And what they were was genuinely unique and quite unlike anything else.


To me, hating the Fable games would be like hating Vampire Bloodlines. It's just something that leaves me scratching my head.


But I know it's hip to hate niche things. Especially things that aren't overly bloody, and violent, and don't compel you to be a total dick all the time. Doubly so since the characters, for a change, also weren't douchebags.


I'm tired of that kind of thing. Fable was just fun, it was heartwarming, hopeful, uplifting, and fun. It was unusual, strange, and unfamiliar in how it behaved and played, but that never made it wrong. It just made it different.


I hate this idea of hating something because it's different. There's a lot of that toxicity going through the UK right now.


I guess I'm just not a fan of that. That's not me.


To be honest, this hate for Molyneux gets under my skin. He's a visionary, and people are incredibly stupid in that they take everything literally. They can't tell his hefty dreams and aspirations from the reality he's able to achieve, but that he wants to keep trying is to be admired, not resented. Unless you're envious, that is.


I'm just getting a feel for a lot of bad emotions in this. Envy, hatred of the unfamiliar, that kind of thing. Molyneux is a creator. You're not supposed to take everything at face value.


Why must gamers always be so bloody literal?


Guh, I'm getting that feeling in my stomach again because I'm reminded of Mass Effect 3 and how gamers couldn't understand that the green stuff in Synthesis was meant to be symbolic, not to be taken literally. And very few gamers understood that.


Glad I'm not a gamer, honestly. I'm just a person who plays video games as entertainment.


But this toxic resentmnet, no, I don't agree with it. Not even with Godus. Godus is popular on mobiles and with a casual audience. That's fine. Let them have it. It's not like that audience is trying to overwrite EVERYTHING in the way mainstream entertainment often does, is it?

NathSB Avatar
How many shades of grey? This information is important!

Less binary choices would indeed be nice, assuming they can pull it off. At the very least, I hope a neutral character will not be objectively worse off than a character at either extreme (in regards to conversation options, etc.)Reply
Xerkics Avatar

Previous games forced you to conform to a certain personality and if you didnt conform to it throughout you lost the ability to choose relevant dialogue options to effect better outcome so neutralish character was always worse off than a raging psycho shephard or a goody two shoes one.

The Crew review snippet How well does The Crew let you develop your character?
It doesn't. It does let you develop your chars and tailor them to a certain extent, but that requires a lot of time put into its RNG-heavy reward system. Speaking of characters, though, the washed-up hipster they call the protagonist (I forget his name) is downright awful in every way.

Space Engineers review snippet How realistic is Space Engineers?
Right now it straddles an awkward middle path of pseudorealism. I personally think a slightly less "realistic" philosophy in terms of both gameplay and graphics would be beneficial for the game.

Exceptional. The soundtrack (both sounds and music) really drive the action into overdrive.
