I find the issue with difficulty is always a complex one. I too crave genuine difficulty and find if I don't play on high levels of difficulty my personal gaming skill is so unchallenged that I feel unfulfilled by the experience.

That being said.. it's a fine line. Because some games manage to balance Difficulty quite well, while other's simply get lazy and go the route I called Cheap difficulty. One shot mechanics, extremely high levels of bullet spongeyness, etc.. good examples of this issue. Instead of ramping up AI and tactics to make enemies smarter and more adaptive, they'll simply slap a high number on their damage output or make them so beefy you take unnecessary damage in the process of mowing them down. This isn't really difficulty as it doesn't challenge you to think carefully about situation or adapt tactics, it just makes the same mob artificially harder based on easiest variables.Reply

Yep - I feel the same. I'd much rather have enemies that are easy to kill, but difficult to FIGHT. It's a harder solution, of course, and limited by current AI and tech, but that's why I spend most of my time killing human operators in Siege instead - it's the perfect balance of fragility (on both sides) and towering skill ceiling.

Assassin's Creed: Origins has forgotten what it means to be an assassinAssassin's Creed: Origins has forgotten what it means to be an assassin

I feel like you're making a lot of assumptions about what 'assassin' means in the first place. You don't have to be stealthy and always getting away clean to be an assassin. All that matters is target dies. Some of the most well known assassinations were always public and brutal for a reason..

That being said. Older AC's were also increasingly boring. Meanwhile games like Shadow of Mordor have taken fast paced combat combined with parkour elements and made it into something much more enjoyable all way around. I'm personally glad if AC decides to learn from this.Reply

completely agree considering it all started for bayek as vengeance it is fitting the way the playstyle is, and honestly i hope they stay on this road this is the best game ubisoft has put out well honestly since black flag

Much as this sucks for those fans.. I can't say it's unfair of EA to not want some random company using their IP.

Proof is in the product if you ask me. CDPR have put out great product, consistently so far. And beyond that, they didn't just ship a good title, they continued to support it with regular updates, DLC (some of it free) and Enhanced Editions addressing player feedback.Reply

Agreed. Witcher 3 is a game that no other can even try to compete with.

Star Wars Battlefront 2's beta is two different games that never meetStar Wars Battlefront 2's beta is two different games that never meet

Feel like we played different beta's here. The MTT in my games died often and plenty. Infact it seemed almost too easy to kill at times. And the most effective way of doing this was actually using the Air vehicles to drop massive damage on the MTT when it was vulnerable.

I also saw a good amount of people using the Tank, and the Clone Walker vehicle on the map. Yes it's more urban and tight and less about someone shooting at you from 10 miles away but I don't think this write up really understand's how the map plays out when everyone isn't running around blindly doing nothing much.Reply

I was going to say the same thing. 5 matches on Theed and not once did the CIS get to the palace.

A large corporate entity having bad communication? Surely you jest! It does continue to amaze how these companies, who's audience runs SO much on community and love of the companies/devs/writers etc... could still be so blind to MASSIVE importance of good community outreach and getting infront of these kinds of issues.

Must be an interesting situation to be in as Blue Hole Studios blatantly ripped off NCSOFT assets and art in their own game TERA. Weird how that swings around on ya.Reply
nbk-RED Avatar

This is almost the same exact thing I posted over on the IGN boards once I read about this. So the company that was found guilty in court of LITERALLY stealing code is now mad at another company for FIGURATIVELY stealing what is mostly just a game mode like CTF.

Bluehole, why the sudden problem with stealing?

It was a much anticipated sequel that was deafeningly decent. It didn't get criticized "too much", it just didn't get carried by it's name like you hoped
[GM] SocietyX Avatar

Nah the hate went too far. The game isn't that bad, especially with the patches they put forth. It wasn't the OMG amazing game I hoped for, but then, are they ever? The thing that should be taken away from it however is how politics encroaching on work place is going to have a pretty negative effect on product you put out.


Honestly surprised EA even let it get that point. Stuffed shirts that they are.

As another bonus - it'll be exactly 50% shorter than it would be if it was full price. Developer's words, not mine.
Also, is there any actual gameplay from this? So far it has been cinematics and staged stuff with ui.
[GM] SocietyX Avatar

Guessing you missed the part where the Developers whole vision is to create another 'genre' of sorts where you can deliver AAA quality at an indie style price. Allowing developers to take more risks on smaller games but not having to give up on high quality graphics, controls, options etc.. because they have to inject tons of fluff and senseless crap to justify 60 dollars.
