Snafu Gaming Talk Thread

Postby Panty Anarchy » Mon Apr 28, 2014 11:47 pm

Have you ever wanted to talk about a rather vague gaming concept like "how do you guys get out of a gaming slump" or "what the fuck is EA doing" or "what game properly simulates the dick sucking experience" well look no further than this thread!

I know there's already a thread along the same lines as this but that one is disjointed and the replies are months or years apart so I thought I'd revitalize the gaming section with a new sparkly thread. Look at it. So shiny.

I'll get the ball rolling!

Microtransactions have become bigger and bolder in recent times. None being so bold as the deplorable Dungeon Keeper iOS, forcing the player to pay for in-game currency to make building and mining not take up to 24 hours. For one block. In light of this, what are your guys' opinions on this "design" that's cropped up?

Ah, nice and fresh and new.

Anywho, to the topic, I've heard of this game before... and it's just sad. Personally I've been doing research into the gaming industry, and this little number... yeah. It's the worst way possible to do a free-to-play game and this sort of formula is the reason why the free-to-play genre is so frowned upon.

But have you looked at Candy Crush? Personally I'm not a fan. But that dear friends is how you do a free-to-play game. You make your customer want to pay for the game you're playing. It still has the "pay to win aspect", but it's not anywhere near as bad as most others of its kind, and you get so invested in how they've recreated the tetris style of play it's addicting.

Are they going to do another? I thought Burial at Sea: Episode Two was wrapping everything up.

Well considering that Irrational Games is now non-existent, yeah, I'd say that's the end of Bioshock.

Not... entirety.
2K has stated that, although Irrational games has been shut down (maybe it rest in peace), the game company plans to release another game because it's has a "interesting universe that make another game possible". I'm intrigued by this... but at the same time scared for my precious series...

The life of a series always gets sketchy when a different developer takes over. Sometimes it works out well, other times... yeah.

IMHO, Halo 4 did well without Bungie. MW3 on the other hand, Infinity Ward was so gutted they had to bring several different studios in to help and the game sucked. Hopefully a Bioshock 4 will share a better fate that MW3.

From what I hear, Ken Levine didn't WANT to make Bioshock Infinite a Bioshock game but 2K pushed for it. Makes his leaving make sense.

Makes me think that's what's happening over at Naughty Dog. Employees getting pissed off by something that the management is pushing for, probably something to do with Last of Us.

I've been playing tribes ascend and path of exile. Tribes ascend is amazing but I haven't played path of exile for very long.

Thoughts, folks?

"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

The industry is evil. This isn't news. It must suck to be Jim Sterling, though. Looking at his calendar to determine who he should yell at this week. "Hmm, who have I yelled at lately? EA. EA. EA. Zynga. Zynga. EA."

*shrug* he's not wrong, and it's not his fault that EA does so many things worth being pissed about
