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

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

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.

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.

Twice the number of women play Overwatch than any other FPSTwice the number of women play Overwatch than any other FPS
[GM] SocietyX Avatar

Well I'm speaking from my own personal experiences. Maybe some statistics would overall refute that given WoW's MASSIVE population by comparison to other MMOs it might have seemed lower. But I saw way more Females coming into genre since WoW's rise and through it. I'll say more females TODAY seem to play like FFXIV and stuff than WoW though.

Consider this: what was the reason you saw more women playing MMOs after WoW? Could it have been because WoW had a massive population, and therefore introduced many women to MMOs regardless of whether they constituted 30% or 1% of the player base? Instead of WoW mysteriously having been more appealing to female players at release than it is now?


Counter Strike in absolute terms likely introduced more female players to FPS than any other game in the genre until Call of Duty topped it. Did that happen because these games were appealing to women specifically, or did it happen in spite of their being unappealing simply because these games were so enormously popular in general? One of these seems more likely than the other, to me.

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.

I think it's more than that. Blizzard has been on the forefront of getting females into gaming for awhile. WoW really broke open that demographic. Far as like main stream gaming in a non-mobile/Facebook sense. Blizzard marketing is just king and the very smooth gameplay and highly polished visuals and fact they always have such diversity and 'strong' women in Overwatch.

Actually, QuanticFoundry's statistics seem to refute that notion. WoW is specifically called out as having a much smaller relative female demographic than other fantasy MMORPGs. So small that even a sci-fi MMORPG (SWTOR) has a (relatively) larger female demographic. I'll also point out that Ragnarok Online was released years before WoW...


Blizzard hasn't really pushed for diversity until they started creating games that allowed players to choose from a cast of characters. That is to say: not until Heroes of the Storm and Overwatch. WarCraft and StarCraft are if anything the opposite of diverse settings.


Blizzard makes great games, but they really haven't pushed for diversity or attracting female gamers specifically until very, very recently. And it's not like Overwatch (or WoW) is being marketed specifically towards female gamers. If anything, with the overemphasis on e-sports, Overwatch is being marketed heavily towards male gamers instead. What with competition being the primary motivation for male gamers and one of the lower ranked motivations for female gamers (again, according to QuanticFoundry)...
