Beyond Good & Evil 2: release date, setting, story, gameplay - everything we knowBeyond Good & Evil 2: release date, setting, story, gameplay - everything we know

The video was nothing special. Pretty, yes, but filled with old jokes and a chase scene where bad guys end up blowing up themselves, not very original.

So they made a short movie about an upcoming game that doesn't even have a launch date yet or even a launch YEAR.

I'm sure you can buy it soon. I mean pre-order. You 'll probably get "our token of gratitude + extra virtual junk" while doing that and a broken, uninspired game when they release it.

Wouldn't buy it after looking at the gameplay... Seems horribly dull and monotonic.

I think this looked much better than AoE2 plus I always found the first one better of the two anyway.

"a triple-A quality title that’s half the size of a normal game."
Most action games tend to be 10-15 hours so we're talking about 5 hours here, right? If that's the case I'll be waiting for the first sale.Reply

They also usually cost $59.99 out of the gate.

Are Overwatch's characters bigger than the game itself?Are Overwatch's characters bigger than the game itself?

I feel that both Overwatch and Hearthstone were ruined by the excessive characterization. Both have glimmering, shiny outfit but are heartless moneymakers in the inside.

Blizzard has become just one of those companies that sell skins and boxes with skins.Reply

I can see your point of view. We should also consider that other gaming companies besides Blizzard do the same thing and they don't divulge into the lore as much. I'll give Blizzard props for developing a unique world that anyone can explore and fall in love with.

DARK SOULS II: Scholar of the First Sin review snippet Would you read more of DARK SOULS II: Scholar of the First Sin's lore outside the game?
If there were a very stylished and atmospheric comic.

I wonder if it's harder to learn competitive SC1 or 2? Kind of burned myself with the second game and feel there's too much going on in it.Reply
Ben Barrett Avatar

SC1, by a lot. It's as tough as SC2 with +12 years of strategy planning, no multiple building select, maximum control group sizes, all sorts of weird UI stuff. Honestly, it's not a game I'd ever expect anyone new to pick up and play, but watching the best has never been bettered.

Is it just me or are they very, very slow at this? I don't know much about coding but I could argue that couple modders could do this way faster. As a building game it's undefeated but as a survival game it's like early access title with most of the fun stuff still missing.Reply

look at Minecraft wiki on page "mojang" there's pictures how work there

Modders are REALLY doing something so of course it is faster

I feel that the best way for consumer to avoid buying poor products is to stop buying unfinished ones in the first place. I wouldn't buy a book that isn't finished.Reply

Precisely. It's like buying a brand new car in pieces. At the end you may or may not have all of the pieces making the product fully working.
