Far Cry is 20 years old Anonymous 07/03/2023 (Mon) 05:38:42 No.4147 [Reply]
Feel old yet?

>>5012 What cashcow? The original Far Cry wasn't some massive success.
>>5014 It still made enough money to justify experimenting with the idea of an open world FPS, something that barely anyone else was doing at the time. After 8 years and two sequels, they finally found the winning formula with Far Cry 3
>>5019 Seems more like they just applied open world slop to everything they had and bugmen eat it all up.

>>5977 well i m abit older than that but thanks for sharing. Nocturne is a fine writing, but hell to play. >>5980 well ff could easily been phototraced or matte. Impressive nonetheless. I wouldnt call it old or "used to" though. Timeless maybe. Thanks for sharing. >>5981 I dont have commentary of the present since indie games remains butthanks for sharing. Never played ZoE but it sure looks v funky. And classic, indeed.
>>5982 >well ff could easily been phototraced Every single texture in FF12 is hand painted, this is revealed in the production diary.
>>5983 Which production diary
>>5984 The production diary.

Baldur's Gate 3 released with overwhelming positive reviews. Others devs worried it outshines them. Anonymous 08/13/2023 (Sun) 19:15:52 No.4895 [Reply]
Remember when Elden Ring released, AssCreed and Horizon: ZD developers were complaining about it and trying to shit on it for its minimalist interface and nitpick it even though it was basically GOTY. Well now, some are upset about Baldur's Gate 3 bc it's a rich product packed with content and no microtransactions. Other developers are saying it sets the bar and expectations too high bc they know they can't reach this level and want gamer expectation set low so they can abuse gamers and rip them off with shitty products, broken on release, and overcharged with gambling microtransactions to suck your wallet dry for as little content as possible. Developers don't want other developers to overdeliver especially Indie devs that can't match the budget or bigger studios. It's kind of like the saying "The tall poppy gets cut down." If you stand out and achieve success, you'll get criticized for standing out from the crowd. In this case, there is some developer concern that gamers will expect a good game for $60 and they know if gamers expect BG3 to become the norm, then developers can't get away with their shitty practices. BG3 is currently sitting at 97 on 20 critic reviews.

>>5011 This is your mind on HRT >post never defended or even mentions either arcanum or dragon age <UUUUUUHG I CAN'T EVEN RIGHT NOW LIKE CAN YOU STOP NOT BUYING SHITTY GAMES???
Now a 96 score on 86 critic reviews. So what is stopping this game from being ranked #1 PC game of all time? It has more way reviews than Disco Elysium. And has more reviews than Half Life 2. It must be something about how the reviews are weighted. Disco Elysium on has 11 reviews yet it's rated number 1 so how is this game with 86 reviews ranked below it, even though it's 96 and not 97. Gamerrankings.com used to be helpful to compare with Metacritic but that site went down. https://www.metacritic.com/browse/games/score/metascore/all/pc/filtered
>>5336 >gayming journos gave it a 96! kys
>>5337 Now at 107 reviews, with a 96 score. The highest-rated PC game of all time. Anything ranked above it doesn't count bc they have less reviews. Disco Elysium only has 11 reviews and that game is a final version of the original Disco Elysium so it doesn't count. The original Disco Elysium got a 90. The Orange Box doesn't count as it's a re-release of 2 games. Sports games don't count unless it's Tony Hawk. And the rest has less reviews so they should be weighted less than BG3. It's over bro. Accept fate. You're looking at the greatest PC game of all time. https://www.metacritic.com/browse/game/pc/all/all-time/metascore/?platform=pc&releaseYearMin=1910&releaseYearMax=2023&page=1
>trusting critic/jewnalist reviews whether positive or negative Come on dude you should know better by now. I only give a slight shit about customer scores and even then they're still not much better than critic reviews because consumers are usually bandwagonning idiots with a healthy number of customer reviews also being """""customer""""" reviews. The only important thing to answer is can I fuck the gnolls?

>>5677 >The PS1 original came on 3 discs 'cause it was jammed with content. It came on 3 discs because it was on stinking CDroms. We went from most games taking up several discs (CDs), to most game taking up 1 disc (DVDs), to all games taking up 1 disc (Bluray) to... games taking up several discs again. Because we hit the technology ceiling and nothing is developing further, nor graphics nor the media. Its regressing backwards because the bloat cannot be sustained. Soon games will take 3 discs again.
>>5679 >Soon games will take 3 discs again. I wouldn't complain about that. If they have the game ready to go playable offline from physical media then that's good imo. US developers wouldn't do that. They're trying to phase out physical media altogether. Or if they have physical media it's just a placeholder and you have to install a day 1 100 GB "update".
>>5678 Then name 1 that allows immediate fast travel anywhere. >>5679 Multiple discs is not the problem. The problem is that modern game assets are huge and the discs aren't being used anymore to load data into the console's memory. You're expected to download a 200 GB game, which takes up half of an 500 GB SSD. It seems all the games are downloaded onto the SSD now whether you buy on disc or not. Bc they need to be able to get the benefits of playing from a game installed to the hard drive. Faster loading, fast travel.
>>5681 If they get rid of fast travel completely and have a world map I might actually want to play it.

I am not crazy! I know he swapped those sarcophagi. I knew it was an antideluvian. Two generations after Caine. As if I could ever make such a mistake. Never. Never! I just – I just couldn’t prove it. He covered his tracks, he got the Anarchs at the Last Round to lie for him. You think this is something? You think this is bad? This? This chicanery? He’s done worse. That werewolf! Are you telling me that a forest just happens to get set on fire like that and he is conveniently right there waiting for you? No! He orchestrated it! Jack! He had the coffin brought to LA! And I tolerated him! And I shouldn’t have. I took him into my own domain! What was I thinking? He’ll never change. He’ll never change! Ever since he was embraced, always the same! Couldn’t keep his hands out of the Jyhad! But not our Jack! Couldn’t be Smiling Jack! Anarching them blind! And HE gets to be called an elder? What a sick joke! I should’ve stopped him when I had the chance! …And you, you have to stop him! You-

One Angry Gamer/Billy D Anonymous 08/15/2023 (Tue) 18:18:06 No.4962 [Reply]
Is there any site like OAG? I used to read it, then it vanished in 2020, and now it seems like there is not a single good gaming website anymore. Literally all of them are woke leftist hipster nigger loving shit. Billy D seems to have vanished with the site. There is not a trace of the guy on the internet or of any of his old staff, or commenters.
/who/
>>4963 >Zoomers
>>4964 No, I just don't need journos, ecelebs and shills telling me what to think about video games. I play them and form my own opinion.
>>4966 then fuck off and go be alone with yourself, fagit.

>>4160 >and anon must become his own Library of Alexandria. This. There are even better mechanisms than optical disk media, but certainly its a good start for an individual anon today.
>>4167 I buy a lot of hard drives as well, I am trying to think of a decent super long term storage solution tho tbh.
