RANDOM VIDEO GAME NEWS

It's been out completely for a few months now. :)

 

A full version?  Like a copy that comes with every episode?

 

 

You can buy all episodes together in a pack, yes. But it's not considered  as one game but individual episodes (which they try to abuse in the sales by making Episode 1 dirt cheap with only moderate reductions on the rest), but they've all been released.

 

During the game they present it as if it were a tv series as well ("Next time on ..." and "Last time on Resident Evil Revelations 2, blah blah blah"), I find this extremely off putting personally as it breaks the flow of the game in a major way (Since I've just completed half of Episode 2 I can't really say much more about the quality of the game overall, but that wasn't the topic either).

 

 

I played RE Revelations 1, but after all the episodes were released as one game.  The "last time on ..." stuff didn't bother me too much.  Just wasn't sure RE Rev 2 had all the episodes out.

Revelations 1 wasn't episodic. The "previous episode" thing was just ...for fun I guess?

Wasn't it episodic for the gamecube (or whatever system it originally came out for)?  I know the XBox360/PS3 port wasn't episodic, but rather the complete game.

It was originally for the 3DS and it was not episodic, it was divided into 15-25 minute long chapters (which makes perfect sense for a handheld game) and you got the "previously on" intros before every chapter to make it seem like a TV show, but you got the complete game all at once.

Ah, okay.  I assumed RE Revelations 1 was like RE Revelations 2.

 

In any case, I'm going to pick up the version that includes all episodes.

I love the concept art for that game every time it comes up on the Steam store...but it really just doesn't look like my type of game. :p Great work on selling your art for your game, Mr./Ms. Concept Artist...it's just too bad I can't bring myself to get the actual game no matter how many times I've looked at it. :(

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 ve seen some gameplay trailers of Battlefront 3... it may actualy turn out to be a good game. still, the feeling that at least 50% o what the game could have in it was cut out to be sold as dlc is making me cringe

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.

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.

I only saw the Hoth trailer, and it looked awesome. What kind of stuff are you thinking they cut for DLC?

I felt the same way when I played Baldur's Gate.  I was like, where is the big trap filled tower and the island full of werewolves?  It was a punch in the gut when they tried to charge me for that content later on.

The Tales of the Sword Coast content kinda sucked anyway, to be honest, :p...BG1's writing was already really basic, but TotSC went a step further and became downright amateur. Durlag's Tower is probably the best of it.

Well...it worked. They seemed to do pretty much the same thing for Throne of Bhaal, but for some odd reason, nothing else ever materialized after that... :p

a really bad comparison

BG was a complete game and the expansion came later as a bonus. they never said "there will be an island and a tower but you will have to buy them separatelly"

battlefront 2 had space battles, old and new trilogy era battles and much more from day 1

battefront 3 is half a game in comparison to 2 and it is already set in stone that the other half will be added later

Looks interesting.  I hope by "survive" it means "dodge dangers while you explore an alien and potentially hostile planet", not "whack rocks with a pickaxe for half an hour, build a wall, lather, rinse, repeat".

The Division beta sign-ups are up. If you haven't pre-ordered (like me), you'll have to put yourself on a waiting list.

 

I was signing up when it asked me for my Uplay log-in info and I said to myself: "Oh yeah... this f***ing bulls***." I swear, I go for such long spells without having to deal with it I have to use the "forgot my password" option whenever I get a new Ubisoft game.
