Please let all the combat be avoidable.  Please let all the combat be avoidable.  Please let all the combat be avoidable. praying.gif

combat, from what i see, consists of shoving enemies out of the way while you run for it. it didnt show any segment of where beating up enemies was the main focus of the game. but it may have some parts like it who knows

still, if they make it with native vr support it will be a blast

The words freedom and liberty, are diminishing the true meaning of the abstract concept they try to explain. The true nature of freedom is such, that the human mind is unable to comprehend it, so we make a cage and name it freedom in order to give a tangible meaning to what we dont understand, just as our ancestors made gods like Thor or Zeus to explain thunder.

What? You thought it was a quote from some well known wise guy from the past?

 

Stupidity leads to willful ignorance - willful ignorance leads to hope - hope leads to sex - and that is how a new generation of fools is born!


We are hardcore role players... When we go to bed with a girl, we roll a D20 to see if we hit the target and a D6 to see how much penetration damage we did.

Now that's just sad.

Despite all it's  problems Mafia series used to have somewhat unique identity.

 

 

Yeah, this is just going to blend in with all the other games about gangsters in the deep south during the 70's.  Nothing unique at all!   :rolleyes:

It will blend perfectly in the field of mediocre GTA knock-offs.

Previous games worked by being story-driven, semi-realistic and milking the Mafia pop-cultural image.

This game breaks 2 of those pillars already and it had only a couple videos released.

Can someone who understands German summarize?  From the gameplay it looks like you do play as gravelly voice guy.  I'm disappointed, I wanted to play as foxy black woman with afro.

The only 'pillar' that you can see them moving away from is the realism angle.  Given that it got fairly boring to drive around at 25 MPH in their beautiful world in Mafia II, I don't see that as a big loss.  The game still captures a unique time period and brings it to life, so I'd say they are right on track for another solid entry.  They've always shared similarities to GTA, that isn't new.

The one valid criticism I do have for Mafia 2 is there was this  beautiful world that I wanted to explore yet I had no incentive....they need to learn from Rockstar and create decent side-quests and activities so you have some reason to explore the city

Unfortunately in most "open-world" games, there is absolutely no incentive to explore the world at all.

 

I do not consider "fetch" quests as incentive...

IGN says you're playing as the main dude in the trailer (Lincoln Clay) and the others are crime heads that can be recruited into your new mob.  Time period is 1968.

 

http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/08/05/mafia-3-exposes-the-dirty-new-face-of-organized-crime

 

Weirdly, 1968 was also the debut of MOD SQUAD, with that other famous Lincoln, Lincoln "Linc" Hayes

Well the time frame makes sense. Mafia saw the story of a guy returning from WW2, Mafia 2 was a vet returning from Korea if I remember.. So Mafia 3 being the vet from Vietnam sounds about right...

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

I really hope it is.  It might have just been the video, but those rolls Faith (who...doesn't look much like Faith...) was doing seemed really disorienting to me (but then again, I tend to find 1st person games really disorienting, so maybe it's just me.)

 

I loved the original Mirror's Edge, so I hope this is at least decent.

wrong. mafia was in the 30s, in mafia 2 the mc was a WW2 veteran that just got home. in this they jumped to just after the vietnam war

Drools... After I played Crusader Kings for the first time, I went crazy for Paradox games, and bought all of them on GoG, including the latest Hearts of Iron III sale... They are really good games, but unfortunately I suck at them haha, but still they are so much fun!

 

Need to go back to CK again, because getting from Count of Orava, to Duke of Nitra and then to King of Hungary was pretty entertaining and satisfying :p But I have to much clashes with Bohemia and Pagans. It was to much for me, so I had to get a break O.o

I can't play CK because there's too many rulers with different traits and just too many variables in general: trying to play that game makes me actually a little physically ill because of my OCD-like behavior. I enjoy EU4, though, particularly considering it's an immeasurable step up in complexity over like, the Total War games, which I thought were decent for a long while until actually trying EU4...at which point the TW games come across more as bad jokes to me. tongue.png

 

(e): How do people ninja-post before me so many times around here? I never feel like quoting the post I'm replying to because it doesn't seem necessary (since I'm posting directly after the person I'm replying to), but I always have to edit my post to put the quote back in after actually hitting post. tongue.png

If nothing else, this is visual proof that you can create a Benedict Cumberbatch character.  I like that the towns look a lot more populated than the original M&B.  It was always quite immersion breaking for me walking into a town with all of 6 or 7 people standing around and 3 or 4 walking around.

The difference is actually astonishing. I try to explain EU to people and they are like "Sounds like Total War without tactical battles... Why would anyone want to play such a game?". It's hard to take Total War seriously after you have played EU, it's like the difference between Operation Flashpoint and Duke Nukem Forever or something.

And new expansion for WoW is Legion

 

 

 

 

 

Seems like a lot of stuff thrown in here, get to run around Suramamr, see the Tomb of Sargeras, Azshara is around, see Deathwing's Lair.

 

Artifacts sound interesting, can wield Ashbringer(...), make stuff from Frostmourne.
