>On March 15, 2016 Crytek announced a new version of Cryengine dubbed "Cryengine V". It features Direct3D 12 and VR support and a new licensing model which allows you to pay as much as you want to use it. The money which you'll pay can be split between the further development of the engine and funding "promising" Indie titles. From now on the company releases the engine's full source code.
I haven't actually seen any of their code or what it is licensed under, but this seems interesting considering how you can choose to spend your monies.

I wonder will this help the linux side of things.

Desperately want to dump windows fully (near fully at least).

It might make some more competitive developments versus the usual 3D stays of Darkplaces and Unity.

As for dumping Windows, have either [DETERMINATION] or patience.

Releasing October of this year with an MSRP of $399. You'll need one of those playstation cameras to use it, so tack on another $50 or so.

I'm really looking forward to playing Ace Combat with one of these things on.

Also, i'm hoping for support of thing like GTA as the first person mode in GTA V would be really cool with something like this.

I know a few of you have already ordered a Vive or Rift, this seems a bit more my speed at the moment as i'm really hesitant to splurge on the first generation of what I anticipate to be a rapidly evolving technology. Anyone else in the same boat?

That's for some kind of launch bundle with all the toys, as far as I can tell. The headset it'self will be $400.

The PC headsets, while preferable, are more expensive and are more likely to be replaced by better performing variants much faster. That and I don't have to upgrade my PC along with buying a headset.

Also, Ace Combat.

A while back you may have heard about some new Descent game that was a FPS MOBA made by some nobodies from the Star Citizen forums who managed to obtain the license.

Well this isn't that. A bunch of former Parallax/Volition people have gotten together and are doing a proper sequel.

However they're only at $175,000 with 3 days left, so I'm hoping it picks up over the last couple days or that they've got some angel investors waiting in the wings.
>> No. 57600 ID: 254d85
And it got funded. It was a pretty close thing too, they hit $300k with 2 hours left and only went $6500 over their goal. (and hopefully they weren't lowballing like some kickstarters.)

Anyone else playing SUPERHOT?
I will say first off the 'Story' is very short for the price tag but I would argue it makes up for it with the Challenges and alternate modes.

For those of you who don't know it is a first person shooter that moves mostly in slow motion. It speeds up time when you do actions like moving, punching, picking up objects and the sorts.
It lets you do some crazy stuff that is border line Matrix. Throwing a keyboard at a guy to disarm him of his gun and snatching it out of midair before spinning around to shoot his buddy while dodging between his bullets, spinning back around to see the last guy to shoot him when a katana wielding bad-ass tries to cut you up but you throw your empty gun at him and taking his sword to slice a bullet in half right before it hits you and throwing your katana across the room into him.

I can completely see some people would think the price tag is a bit hefty but I would say it is worth it. There is an early version you can play on their website unless you are using Chrome. The story is short yet decently interesting, though I would put the gameplay above the story any day of the week. It is one of the most innovative shooters I've seen in years.

Soup. Are there any decent coop RPG's out lately? I want something I can play with mai waifu. MMO's are even fine though ideally I don't want to pay a monthly subscription. I'm fine with just some generic fantasy one.

Fallout 4 publisher Bethesda Softworks announced the first details of its downloadable content schedule for the game today, saying that it has plans for "more than $60 worth" of add-ons coming in 2016 — and therefore, an increase in the price of the DLC season pass.

Bethesda originally announced the Fallout 4 season pass in September at $29.99. At the time, the company said that the season pass "get you all of the Fallout 4 DLC we ever do for just $30," and added, "We know that [the DLC] will be worth at least $40, and if we do more, you'll get it all with the Season Pass."

Fallout 4 - Automatron DLC art 1000

That will no longer be the case as of March 1, when, "given the expanded DLC plan," Bethesda will raise the price of the Fallout 4 season pass from $29.99 to $49.99 in North America (and from £24.99 to £39.99 in the U.K.). Bethesda noted that anyone who already purchased the season pass, or who buys it before March 1, will get all of Fallout 4's paid add-ons for the original $29.99 price.

Of course, Fallout 4 players will be able to purchase add-ons individually if they don't want to commit to the season pass. The game's first piece of paid DLC is Automatron, which is set for release in March for $9.99 in North America and £7.99 in the U.K. Automatron is a mod-focused expansion that will let you harvest parts from evil robots, including the Robobrain, to build custom robot companions.

Next up is "Wasteland Workshop," which introduces the ability to design cages for capturing enemies "from raiders to Deathclaws." You'll be able to "tame them or have them face off in battle, even against your fellow settlers." The add-on will also offer new design options for settlements. "Wasteland Workshop" is coming in April for $4.99 in North America and £3.99 in the U.K.

The third Fallout 4 add-on Bethesda announced today is Far Harbor (screenshot above), which is a full story expansion and is priced to match at $24.99 in North America and £19.99 in the U.K. Here's the full description from Bethesda:

A new case from Valentine's Detective Agency leads you on a search for a young woman and a secret colony of synths. Travel off the coast of Maine to the mysterious island of Far Harbor, where higher levels of radiation have created a more feral world. Navigate through the growing conflict between the synths, the Children of Atom, and the local townspeople. Will you work towards bringing peace to Far Harbor, and at what cost? Far Harbor features the largest landmass for an add-on that we've ever created, filled with new faction quests, settlements, lethal creatures and dungeons. Become more powerful with new, higher-level armor and weapons. The choices are all yours.

I liked Cricket until I read....spoiler alert....that she was an Institute spy. Pretty much all the Caravan people are. And snitches get stitches.

I may not like the Railroad, that Watts woman from Fallout 3 being a cunt kinda soured that relationship for me and the F4 RR with their "help synths, fuck humans" attitude doesn't do them any favors, but I like the Institute even less.

At their very core they are kidnappers. The game starts with them kidnapping your kid. Throughout the game you hear about dozens of people who have been replaced. You run into a person being replaced. Thats fucked up. They are killing people and replacing them with slave copies that they don't even have the decency to care about.

And thats not all. That doesn't even get into the probably hundreds of people they kidnapped and experimented on with FEV. People that once infected they just tossed out into the Commonwealth creating the current super mutant menace there.

Then there is the whole towns they wiped out with their earlier robit synths. Places like University Point and various settlements they launch raids on. People in those settlements they replace.

So anyone who works with the Institute willingly is the enemy.

Actually I just came back from Deadpool with some friends. €14 for a ticket, large popcorn and coke. So I'll buy Firewatch when it's (20-14) €6 on sale haha

Great film by the way.


More seriously though, I don't mind games that are on the line of possibly being in the wrong medium. Just as long as it is very clear what kind of game it will be so the consumer can make a good decision with their vidja bux.

Cinematic is a very annoying term though, usually just means "are game's a bit shit and wont have good frame rates".

>I can go to a matinee showing of Deadpool with a burger lunch and a beer delivered to my seat and pay the same, if not a dollar more than Firewatch at MSRP.

Yes, that's what I was getting at. You can go see a 2hr movie in theaters, or play a game like Firewatch, which is essentially an interactive movie, for 4-6.

>Firewatch is a game with all the right elements poorly executed

Nothing is really poorly executed about it other than the fact that it isn't long enough to really be good value compared to other videogames.

well that's your subjective view, but then you go on and admit that...

>isn't...good value compared to other videogames.

Exactly his point. It's failed at it's medium; and intended audience. This is the same reason 10 or 15 minute cartoons at movie theaters, and you don't have a waiter at McDonald's.

>It's failed at it's medium

There isn't a correct way to use a creative medium. That's a non-sequitur. Barnett Newman and Van Gogh are both equally successful and critically acclaimed painters and to rail against that is just to be bitter that history got written without your input.

Firewatch has recieved glowing reviews from both critical reviewers and players, and no doubt been commercially successful, so really it's egotistical to say that it's failed anyone other than the handful of people that wanted a more traditional videogame experience.

But like >>57424 said, adventure games tend to use puzzles just to pad out game length (and pre-GameFAQs, make more money off of players), take for example, the maple syrup cat hair mustache in Gabriel Knight 3, or (IIRC) the hidden fusion reactor you need to solve a puzzle in a Space Quest game that is never once mentioned beforehand.

So how excited is OpChan for the upcoming Xcom2 release? Was the first remake OPERATOR enough for you guys, or is the original X-Com: Enemy Unknown (or the more loyal Xenonauts remake) the only good version in your mind? How about Terror From the Deep and Apocalypse?

Personally, I liked the original, didn't like Terror From The Deep, hated Apocalypse, never played Xenonauts, loved the remake more than I did the original (heresy, I know), and love everything I hear about Xcom2 except the revealed storyline that Xcom losing in the first game is the canon they are going with. Call my weird but I would've preferred a "You won but things went to shit anyway" scenario.

Game AI have an OODA loop it's just really fast, that's why speedrunning games works. It's worse on modern games for some reason.

I actually had similar results on that one. More wounded due to grenade hits, but most of my "reinforcements" never even got to engage, despite my original six being so badly outnumbered.

I honestly think the AI just isn't very good at dealing with a relatively large head to head engagement where both parties know what they're running into.

Finished the game on commander. Had to retry the last mission several times to get shit done.

While some people seem to love hacking oriented specialists, I've had horrendous fucking luck with them (even when using the skulljack to boost hacking stats). In the end game, I'd probably just take an extra magi instead.
Maybe it's just my horrendous luck with the RNG, but even with double hacking stat to the hacking difficulty, I still got owned constantly when hacking.

I doubt I'll continue playing XCOM2 (though I will no doubt play the expansion when it's out). I played XCOM:EU/EW many times through, but I won't with XCOM2.

Mages and tech-priests are the two best units in the game. Mages can double your team. The other powers like null lance and soul fire, combat protocol, capacitor discharge all ignore armor.

I breezed through the last mission without any of my team even being hit. When you have a gatekeeper, three archons, and a sectopod you don't really have to worry that much about anything.
>> No. 57456 ID: bbadd8
>>57444

My little tech priest had 160 or 165 hacking skill and he did not do any successful hack throughout the entire fucking mission.
Must be just my luck.
My magi on the other hand kick serious ass.

Also, your Sectopod would leave your control in a few rounds... Mind controlled enemies don't. (though you can get many hacks for only one mind control)

Pretty much spot on. So far, it looks like Dark Souls 3 will take significantly after Bloodborne but with Dark Souls 1's art direction. Granted, everything seems way too fast, IE a Wandering Knight with the Greatsword in the stress-test has no problem fast-rolling. It's probably going to change in the actual game, but I fear the first few months will be as bad as Dark Souls 1 when the Darkwood Grain Ring allowed everyone to flip.
