I on the other hand, am someone who could benefit from the play anywhere adoption.

My problem with a game like the division, was i had to choose which platform to get, as all three had friends onReply

Yup, I'm happy with it as well, for multiple reasons. When I reach parts of the game that are completely unstable on PC (To be fair, that's developer error and should be fixed) I can swap to the Xbox One, I can play Forza Horizon on the PC super smooth but also play it with my Xbox One friends, and one copy of Gears of War 4 lets me play co-op with my girlfriend on two separate systems, which is better than split-screen.

Okay, reading this, all I can think about is Firefall.

Firefall, some might remember, Started out as being a PvP Sci-fi game which took inspiration from TF2 and Tribaes. The big feature was that they would use the PvP gameplay model, and apply it to PvE style content in the form of an open world (That... the users would choose in which direction they would expand, but lets not go there)

Soon, They changed the model of gameplay, so that it was more focused on a balance between PvP and PvE. Then more changes.. and more changes. They made it so that the "Thumping" activity became the only way to progress in the game, They removed PvP entirely, they imported Missions to grind out experience instead of sidegrade progression.

Then... the board of directors forcibly removed the head of Red5, and around the same time, it came to light from similar sources that Mark Kern had never settled on gameplay ideas, and was constantly changing his mind, and (just like here) was impossible to reason with.

PCGamesN recently did an article where similar complaints were heard http://www.pcgamesn.com/firefall/firefall-ex-ceo-tries-to-convince-community-to-sink-the-game-so-he-can-buy-the-ipReply

Spot. On.


This is exactly what came to mind for me as well. I was an unfortunate Early Backer with Firefall, and hung around with that game far longer than I should have. You're absolutely right about the overscope, and recreations that game went through. Supposedly Kern is cooking up another game, and has achieved some funding for it. I haven't followed it much, but it began with him mass emailing all the original Firefall backers.


Indeed, though. This is tragically similar to what's going on with Star Citizen.

They are american based however they have been moving much of the development over to the Foundry 42 subsidiaries (based in the UK and Germany), supposedly because people are cheaper to hire.


I'm a software developer myself so see their adds quite a lot.

Lets see, the Engineer with the Hammer is using a hard to get end game item, normally,


The Jetpack lady... everyone has jetpacks, not impressive. The Anubis Helmet is an expensive Cash Shop item for all classes.


oh, and the "Halo" around the mercy clone? that's a very expensive real world cash cosmetic item. Healers do not come with a halo as standard.

Oh, there is a duplicate of it, but without the pictures' here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Paladins/comments/3u8kna/opinion_piece_paladins_the_warcraft_fpsba/


I was basically saying "It's a good, unique game, but feels like you wanted to make a game for the Warcraft Universe"

During the Beta, I gave my initial impressions, and said it felt like Hi-Rez wanted to pitch a WoW standalone Battle game, but then Blizzard announced Overwatch so they instantly announced Paladins right afterwards.

The reason it's WoW and not Overwatch is to do with the general style. The Dwarf looks very similar to WoW's Opening Cinematic, The Horse is a copy of the Palomino horse, the goblin is practically identical to the Goblin Shredder.
The level at the time also looked and felt like a WoW PvP Map, specifically one set in the Eygptian based zone from Cataclysm.
I had a collection of pictures and comparisons at http://forums.paladins.com/showthread.php?1141-Opinion-Piece-Paladins-The-Warcraft-Shooter-Battle-Arena/page2 but they have placed this article into a locked part of the forum since going open beta

Also... those videos? that is just pathetic Hi-Rez.. You can't claim you have "Archtypes" when your classes have a huge range of things they can do. Global Agenda has four classes, Medic, Assult, Stealth, Engineer (Can't remember their real names). All of those classes can use pretty much any weapon in the game. So Saying "We did it before" is pretty much like someone bringing a new toy to class, and you build something that looks like it out of lego and saying you did it first.Reply

Firstly... Thank you for the Other gender.

Secondly... Question 7 is really weird. I mean... I use all of these options, but aren't Steam and GoG also Publisher Services? Belonging to Valve and CDProjectRed respectively?
