I came across this video which is pretty interesting and thought maybe we should have a thread for random videos we come across in the internet and want to share.

 

 

This is not about the history of Ghost Recon series but the history behind the setting(Bolivia) in Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

This is the video that made me decide to buy Hollow Knight and to my surprise, the experience is the same which is why I really love it so far. As so many are saying, it's probably going to be my goty for 2017.

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

I think Kixkstarter/Crowd funding has made possible for someof the best games of the last 5 years..

 

Sure. There are alot of bad games but the ones done right are done right and exceptionally well at that.

I like Ahoys Iconic Arms series. It starts as how some gun came to be in real world and then stuff about its presentation in game worlds. It sounds simple, but it's quite interesting.

This post is not to be enjoyed, discussed, or referenced on company time.

I'm not surprised... when you're selling games that cheap, devs can't feed themselves or their families. I knew ot was ultimately a matter of time.

It is undeniably **** compared to the original Prey 2 that got cancelled some time ago.

I can see you come from alternate reality and the future where you got to play both games and compare them.

 

Let's be honest here: The original Prey was a rather average shooter to begin with, it just got some cool gimmicks.

No, I come from a reality where simple logic allows me to understand that the new Prey is more like a copy of System Shock instead of being something original...let's say something like a Bounty Hunter in space who is tied to the the lore of the original game and has the opportunity to hunt aliens, capture them and decide their fate, not to mention the fact that the the world would react towards the bounty hunter's decisions!

That actually makes it a pretty good shooter. Also, I thought the Indian/Cherokee vibe of the game was something rather unique? Yeah, especially if the counterpart is System Shock/Bioshock mixed with Groundhog Day and Duke Nukem Forever tier of puzzles: "turn into a cup!!!"

There's plenty of games with cool premise. Vast majority of them fail when it comes to their execution. Stuff like openness, reactivity and freedom are buzzwords used in gaming for the last 5 years or so, and majority of games fail to deliver. Incidentally, Arkane does happen to be among the small minority of studios that have proven to be actually capable of delivering on those promises.

No, the cool gimmicks make it an average shooter. It'd be rather poor otherwise. I mean come on, it didn't implement majority of the features even its peers were able to at the time, and its gimmicks are purely cosmetic. Oh and you can't die.

Yes, that's quite literally the only thing I really dug about the original Prey. But that's not really a gameplay feature and wasn't particularly prominent outside anything but aesthetic - even the 'dream' sequences were incredibly cliché with a nice coat of paint.

 

Duke Nukem Forever tier of puzzles: "turn into a cup!!!"

... And that's why we can't have fun new ideas in AAA games. Because when they are attempted, people are going to call them stupid. Incidentally, it's not like gaming's overflowing with games focused on being stranded on a space station - especially since Prey's storyline promises a lot more (like experimentation on alines captured during their defeated invasion, which is a premise I don't think I've ever seen really.)

 

Look, for all I know, the new Prey'll be crap. But Sturgeon's law tells us that, most likely, so would be Prey 2. Idealizing something that you've never even really seen in action at any length of time is not a particularly constructive approach, all things considered. But the new Prey may bring some interesting ideas and gameplay elements to the table - for that, tho, we'll have to wait and see. Prey 2 would not exist, regardless of what happened with the Prey's name. And getting hung up on a word feels a bit... Silly.

Been tempted to buy but heard that an enhanced edition was coming out or is already out?

I believe so, I don't think it's out yet though.

 

I think the reboot of the first comes out next year iirc.

Not sure about that. Dishonored had a great setting but even the sequel failed to tell a captivating story. Maybe that's why they hired Chris Avellone to write the story for the new Prey.
