  • Why does everyone complain when a game does not have a single-player campaign? If a dev wants to make a multiplayer focused game, why would the dev want to take resources that could be used to make the multiplayer better and use them to make a tact-on single-player component.

    @phil - that raises the question of why should a multiplayer game be made to cater to someone who would not enjoy the original design.


    If someone would not like a multiplayer only game, should funds be diverted to try and appease them? should every game have to have something to appeal to everyone?

    The more you try to appease a broader audience, the more you ruin the core experience, in my opinion.


    I am not saying the whiners are right, or the devs should cave to them. I am just saying their feeling of entitlement will make them whine.

    Thats not to say you shouldn't try to reach a broad audience, either. It's a balancing act, for sure. Appealing to a broad audience, whilst not becoming mucked-up crap.
    I am writing this status post to say goodbye. It has been nice knowing all of you and hope I can see you all again, someday. *gets done talking to Pokemon Cards*

    @Nathanial - I actually have a first edition Charizard (which is actually worth the $$$$$ right now).


    Perhaps I can meet them again when it is time for me to retire :p

    I still have all of my MtG cards, even though i stopped playing a few years ago.


    I'd say my deck should be worth about 2-3k € by now, in addition to several higher costed cards in my collection.


    I probably won't ever sell them, though, since i have lots of good memories from that time (i once even won a Black Lotus in a tournament, though i sold it immediately).

    I still love my old MtG cards, but all my old friends stopped playing and the game changed so much from the days I played. D:


    Also, gratz on winning a tournament (I only ever made it to second place in local tournaments).

    Can anything be labeled as a beta these days? The word has lost all meaning when games have been in beta for 2+ years and have no signs of ever coming out of it or when the game has a beta a week before the games release.

    @Neo - yeah true.


    I feel other words like roguelike (any game with permadeath) and pay2win (everyone has a different definition of what constitutes p2w) have lost there meaning also.

    BETA now means "demo to create hype and get people to buy it without having earned the right to sell the game yet".


    Fortunately, I use the term "BETA" properly in my own game design. As in, practically jack works and I'm doing playthroughs to make it work.

    It is interesting how the word count in games have shrunk so much to (compared to games like planescape torment, old ff games, etc).

    I find that most "comments" on anything other than a forum are a massive waste of time to read. They only make me lose faith in humanity and hope the asteroid comes much sooner.
    I am disappointed that Fates has reduced magic so heavily (ex: there is only 1 dark spell and there are more swords then the total amount of spells)., Although happy that there are so many new weapon types.

    I prefer the rebalance. I didn't like how awakening took out light and kept dark... it doesn't really make sense.


    I'm interested on how this new weapon triangle will work.
    AwesomeCool
    AwesomeCool
    @SeaCliff - Magic is also severely under-powered in the game (I wish my friend didn't show me how crappy mages were in the Japanese version). I wish that light and dark both stayed honestly (I really liked Radiant Dawns magic triangle and wish that they kept that too).


    Why can't IS ever get magic right (either broken or useless in most cases).


    I REALLY love that weapons no longer break and like the idea that stronger weapons/spells have a downside.

    @Neo - games would rather be movie like then take advantage of the mediums strengths.


    How awesome would it be if you were the one to do the most epic stuff, instead of your character doing it in a cutscene?
    NeoFantasy
    NeoFantasy
    Exactly, I don't understand why the coolest parts always happen on cutscenes it's not as if it's impossible to have the player do these things look at shadow of the colossus, in most other games climbing the colossi would have been simple quick time events but here it works fine and feels cinematic at the same time.
    My pet has just evolved from puppy into dog. I was wonder if I should wait to give him the cool kid glasses item or wait till later (I want him to evolve into Doge with the best possible stats).

    Also, AwesomeCool in response to your post in my status earlier, I have a rather new computer that can run anything I throw at it at max, so I wasn't surprised I hit the requirements for Rift. I probably won't shell out for it right away though... I'll wait for the next version or see if a price drop happens (unlikely for quite awhile)

    Im afraid that the oculus rift would give me motion sickness, besides I'm not interested in virtual reality unless it cs compare to the nerve gear :p

    @Natanial - that is great :)


    Hope you enjoy it.


    I am annoyed with how bad the pr for the Oculus Rift was.


    Even in Summer 2015, Palmer was stating how it would fail if it went beyond $400 and said it would be in the $200 - $400 price range.
    The Oculus Rift is $600 and needs 4 usb ports (plus, a VERY strong PC is needed at minimum). This is way too much for a peripheral imo.

    Well, I don't want to pay for an Xbox controller and two crappy games that launch with it. Bleh! Give me the stripped down version of Oculus Rift. I.e. the cables, the headset and the camera.

    IF you were fortunate enough to have paid into the Kickstarter, they are sending you a FREE upgrade to commercial version I had read.

    @Metrobot - It probably is expensive to make, but that isn't going to make people pay $600 for it (especially when they said it would be $300 to $400 earlier). It also doesn't help that it is in a forced bundle and requires a very powerful computer at minimum to run it (will need even more power to run a game on high settings).


    It seems that it is still to soon for VR if it costs that much. Not very many people will take the risk of being an earlier adopter...
    A character being cliche is not bad on it's own. A character that is built well that then ends up having traits of a cliche character can end up really well made (and generally feels more natural). A character that is built from a cliche has a high chance of ending up feeling unnatural and non-memorable.
    AwesomeCool

    @Makio - I do not mind Cliches and straying does not make it a better character by itself.


    I meant that by designing a character around a cliche (instead of applying a cliche to a character already made) makes the character slip easily into becoming a carbon cutout that is defined by the cliche instead of the character itself.
    AwesomeCool
    AwesomeCool
    Basically results in remembering the cliche of the character instead of the actual character.

    eh, I still disagree. The end result matters most of all.


    My personal character development phase the first step is usually a list of one tropes/cliches I want for each character. That IS how they start. They don't end that way. So I think you can build up from a cliche or build into a cliche. Neither way is wrong because creativity doesn't have absolutes like right and wrong.

    So Xbox One has 3 games coming exclusively to the system (Gears 4, Quantum Break, Crackdown 3) and 9 that are coming to Xbox and PC in 2016. This is the BEST exclusive Xbox lineup in gaming's history?
