It has come to our attention that a Thread of this nature is necessary. However shocking though it may be, it comes with some Rules... :p




Obviously only post about 3rd Party games here.
If you post screenshots, video's etc a link must be provided to the original source.
No posting and running.

If you post any content it must also contain discussion about said content.
Any posting and running will be seen as spam and we all know how everyone loves Infractions. :p


Any Rumors must be marked as such.



As always, normal Forum Rules also apply. So now that we've taken the fun out of it, post away!

SCB was showcased at MCM Expo

Some details and More than 60 min of Gameplay :)

Warning: The sound mixing is pretty bad, there is either really bad mixing between the stage discussion and the game playing over it or a ton of feedback.

First part, 30 mins: Scott Lee going over the Paladin hub area and all the different options you get, small run up to the start of the Benghazi (first mission in BL) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3OYnn8iLD4)

Second part, 30 mins: showing off the London night time mission (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAHsyoN19QE)

Part 3, which is a little longer (40 mins or so) and supposed to be more action-y. (http://www.twitch.tv//x360a_ps3t/b/408541829?utm_campaign=archive_embed_click&utm_source=www.xbox360achievements.org)

-Paladin (hub) overview with other NPCs (starts around 4 mins in)
-customization system briefly shown off, many options to allow different gameplay modes (starts 7 minutes in)
-certain equipment pieces allow for different gear loadouts; more pistol/2-handed weapon ammo, gadgets, etc, also stealth/armour ratings different
-also plenty of cosmetic options, e.g. goggle colours, camo styles
-all upgrades/weapons have physical representations in the Paladin
-SMI – new menu system shown off, how it links SP/Co-op/MP together
-pre-order bonus (Upper Echelon suit) is the Chaos Theory suit for those that want it
-can hop inbetween game modes on the fly, no need to dig through menus
-14 co-op maps, all SP/co-op/MP maps are original, no reused content (except maybe barrels and crates)
-taking lessons from older SC games, admits the last few SC games were a bit weak
-emphasis on mini sandbox-style levels
-showing an older build from january
-showing off mission briefing for the first mission (Benghazi, day time mission), some game play, secondary objectives – starts around 19 mins in
-Sam no longer the lone wolf with the handler; has to lead a team from the start, eventually watch the 4E team grow
-perfectionist difficulty – stripped abilities, not simply difficulty ramp up
-cannot execute, no frontal takedowns allowed, no sonar goggles (see through walls), one-shot one-kill
-can see difference b/w armour types, more stealthy armours look lighter
-room at 12 min in, can be entered in multiple ways
-all lights in the game are dynamic – can be switched off by switch, destruction or EMP
-levels have multiple approaches, in instance of the mill, multiple connected floors, can climb around it outside to approach it differently
-possible to bypass all enemies, can finish the game with no kills, maybe some segments that might require you to neutralize enemies to proceed (non-lethal a possibility of course)
-heavy archtype enemy, cannot be attacked from ahead, requires more effort to disable (possibly the same in co-op that requires well-timed mark and executes to kill)
-forced stealth segment during London mission – cannot be detected, no enemies touched
-co-op has split screen
-BL’s story will standalone, written so that old games are not required reading in a sense
-graphic novel is lead-in into the game for the game

I'm really interested in the upcoming top-down horror game "Darkwood". They just released a new trailer:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSjnDKBLZbc

There's 8 days left on their IndieGoGo campaign (http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/darkwood?c=home) and they're still some ways off from their end goal. If the game looks interesting to you, please support them and spread the word.


Edit: Posted the wrong video, fixed.

How is it a Slender ripoff? Slender is basically just walking around until you see something go "BOO!" at you and then it's game over. In this game you explore the forest and meet eccentric characters who may offer you help or at least have something to say that contributes to the atmosphere. There is some sort of story, it seems, though what kind of story is not clear yet. You use tools to fend off the monsters which can be not only avoided (like in Slender) but killed. The game is a sandbox that you can keep on playing indefinitely on survival mode. Each playthrough is different, meaning monsters don't always pop up in the same places.

Ubisoft launches UbiBlog


http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2013/22/1369780638-ubiblog-x.jpg (http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2013/22/1369780641-ubiblog.jpg)

blog.ubi.com (http://blog.ubi.com/)

Welcome to the UbiBlog

The internet can be a vast, cold, unwelcoming place. We know. We’ve been there.

And yet here we are, launching a brand-new blog, at a time when information has a tendency to overload. This is an era when don’t just consume content – we risk being consumed by it.

But here’s our hope: The UbiBlog will be a warm place, a happy place. A place where our mutual love of games shines through in every single post. Because at Ubisoft, we have a straightforward – and, quite frankly, magical – mission: “to enrich players’ lives by creating original and memorable gaming experiences.” That means not just developing amazing games. That also means talking about those games – both before they come out and after.

But why now? Our answer is simple: Why not now? As we begin this new console generation, as we stand strong (while remaining ever-flexible) in the face of seismic shifts in the gaming landscape, we want to be there to chronicle it all, to share our love of gaming with you, to be a source and a resource – and to just offer a place to hang out and interact with the content you adore.

2013 is going to be another phenomenal year for Ubisoft, with Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag (http://blog.ubi.com/category/assassins-creed/), Watch Dogs (http://blog.ubi.com/category/watch_dogs/), Splinter Cell Blacklist (http://blog.ubi.com/category/tom-clancys/) and other triple-A games that we’ll be revealing soon enough. We’ll have an abundance of original and exclusive postings on all these games, while introducing you to our tremendous lineup of digital, mobile and free-to-play releases. We’ll dig deep to offer new insights, and we’ll throw back the curtain to give you an inside look straight from the development teams. We’ve also got a spectacular slate of columnists, both from within and outside of Ubisoft. We’ll share our voices with you, and we’ll interact with you on every story. That’s a promise.

We’ve placed a doormat outside, the kind that says “Welcome” and, perhaps, has a picture of a smiling sun on it. So wipe your virtual feet and c’mon in. Take a break, kick back, and catch up with all the latest from Ubisoft. We’ll be here, with new content for you every day.

And don’t forget: comments are appreciated, and the discussion should be lively. Be sure to make your voice heard. Because this is your blog, too.

Welcome, friends, to the UbiBlog.

Same city , similar map layout .

Needs a BIG desert canyon area to fly the jets to full effect & area 51 - 2-3 contrasting City districts - wilderness ,mountains & countryside . & a whole lot of ocean .

Ubisoft Red Storm working on unannounced PS4/Xbox One game

http://gamingeverything.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/ubisoft_red_storm_ps4_xbox_one.jpg

Ubisoft Red Storm, the team behind Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six titles, is creating a brand new project for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Senior character artist Brian Spencer lists an unannounced game for both consoles on his resume.

Red Storm’s website may give some clues as to what is being worked on. The studio is hiring for a “next AAA, cutting edge multiplayer game”. One game play engineer posting mentions an “action-adventure shooter on current- and next-gen game consoles, and PC”.

The Crew – more rumored details
For those unaware, The Crew is a rumored next generation racing game coming from Ubisoft, with details having been leaked prior to its likely reveal at E3. Here’s what we know via an alleged playtester of the game:
- The Crew is expected to play similar to Ubisoft Reflections most recent racer Driver: San Francisco, with a semi-arcade style of racing.
- As with Driver: San Francisco, The Crew will be open world with the ability to travel between New York City and Los Angeles, though the scale of these cities has been reduced.
- It is not clear whether you will travel through wilderness to reach each city or whether the game will simply load in each area.
- The Crew will also feature a similar ‘Google Maps’ style mechanic, presumably for navigating the open world.
- A ‘Freeride’ mode will be available too, which the option to choose between missions or challenges.
- Multiplayer will feature 8 players in either competitive or co-operative gameplay, though no more specific details were provided.
- As is the case with Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs – and presumably many of the publisher’s next-gen games – The Crew will come with a companion app for mobile devices.
- It is presumed that The Crew’s release date will be before the end of 2013, presumably to tie into a next-gen release. With such a close release date,

it’s safe to assume The Crew will be announced at E3 2013.


We’ll probably hear a lot more about this game at E3 in just 6 days.

Xbox has started doing the 2 free games a month thing, starting with Halo 3 and our very own AC2.

Nice of them to catch up & offer something for the online Fees they charged for years - XBOX have been copy pasting Sony features for a while now starting with 360.

I'm half expecting a 'backpedal' from Microsoft with a new price & new policy on game trading/sharing for XB-1 .

Difficult to come across as an industry leader - When the majority of specs/ features & 'innovations' simply mirror your Rival's product .

(Months paying / persuading Movie studios to adopt HD-DVD in an attempt to undermine Blu-ray - Then forced into using Blu-ray in order to progress their Next gen . PRICELESS ):p

-focuses on five new characters, no confirmation or denial that Season 1 characters (who haven't died), comic characters, or TV characters will appear
-Each character's story will be told in a separate anthology style story, sort of like Pulp Fiction
-The overall story focuses on what happens at a truck stop over the course of 400 days starting from the beginning of the outbreak.
-Demo at E3 introduced the character Vincent, who like Lee Everett is a prisoner going to jail at the start of his story. Other characters playable will be Bonnie, Shel, Russell, and Wyatt
-Requires at least the first episode of TWD to play, developers recommended entire season finished before playing
-Promises that choices from Season 1 will affect 400 Days, and that choices made in 400 Days will affect Season 2.
-Will launch on PC and consoles in July for $4.99. No confirmation/denial if Season Pass holders will get it for free.

There is a strong presence of stealth , Melee combat and shooting. Listen mode is there but it only last for a few seconds before it needs recharging. Real time crafting is also there.

Sounds like a bit of fun for some extra hours. I'll just borrow the game from a friend for 2 weeks, finish the singleplayer and try the multiplayer for an hour or 2. It's pretty much what I would have done if I had got the game anyway. Thanks for the insight :)

Far easier to impress a Child than it is to really impress an adult - No idea how that isn't relevant to 'user reviews'. Same goes for HYPE & the end user overlooking any actual flaws in the end product because of how Hyped/excited they are to finally play it.

It's amazing because few other games can suck you into its world the way Skyrim does, it can keep you entertained with addictive and fun gameplay. Sure the story is not the greatest but side quests are where the game is at. Also the last part is all a matter of opinion.
Really now? I'm a long time TES and Fallout player and I know 'what' they games are about, needless to say every questline was ****. The Dark Brotherhood was amazing in oblivion and had some pretty amazing and creative assassinations. Same with Thieves guild or any of the quests but in Skyrim they're just.......poo. Dragons are easy as ****e and buttnaked barbarians are tougher. Skyrim it's just COOKIE CUTTER, actually the whole game is a bunch of **** fetch quests and crap dungeons.

You've played it a bit, you should know by now.


And exactly why is it amazing? Oblivion and Morrow can beat it to death without even trying.

And this(stats from 2011):
http://i.minus.com/i4H6UhFUdehtL.jpg

While all those games are amazing, that image is ridiculously biased against Skyrim. I'll give you generic fantasy and meh combat, but the plot wasn't really that generic. It was basic yes, but it was enjoyable. It's quite hard to create an amazing story when the player character has so many variables in race, appearance, gender and background. Story and dialogue have to be basic to a certain degree to deal with this. Deus-Ex and Witcher 2 have preset characters which allow them to have background, personality and relationships with more complex characters. I'd hardly call Dark Souls story 'interesting' either, since it was near non-existent.

As for graphics though I know it doesn't really count, Skyrim with mods makes it one of the best games graphically out there. Deus Ex and Dark Souls are not particularly strong in the graphics department either.

Skyrim got those high scores because of the massive impression it first gives you when you first start the game. Sure it feels empty after you've explored everything and done the story but that's the same for alot of open world games and it's that amazing first impression that makes it enjoyable.

That`s assuming most Children who play are 10 year olds, not forgetting that many children are perfectly capable of discerning of what they think is a good game and what`s not..i.e, I know this may be difficult to understand for you, but some children have intelligence and don`t impress easily...intelligence isn't age-specific and "easily impressed" is implying that every child is a baby...

you`re actually providing arguments that work against you, lol xD prolonging and hype are the biggest combination of game break ever...look at GTA V, many fans are turning on Rockstar for delaying GTA V and GTA IV was delayed numerous times, and look at it`s review score. 7.5...what you provide as "instant cash ins" are the exact opposite of that..Hype and wait time are very risky approaches and it can either break or make the game for people...no where do the instances you provide EVER occur...GTA IV had tremendous hype, had a looong wait, but was met with average user reviews...

Except that every 2nd quest is a fetch quest. So basically...don't play the whole game because it's designed poorly but don't call it bad is your solution.

Who said they didn't, point is there is no improvement over it and they are 'good' because they didn't make you fetch something for every quest and were actually deep.

Swordsmanship, Archery, Spells - Done that all, what do you want me to do now create artificial difficulty by trying to punch them to death?

EDIT: And while this has been mentioned I'll add that Archery has been dumbed down, earlier TES used to require skill, there was a drop to it and so you had to calculate your aim, now when you fire it, the arrow automatically goes up for compensation and hits the target almost no skill involved.

It applies to almost everything in life.

Skyrim's didn't make you fetch in every one either, so you're wrong, again.

This game is also not about difficulty either and if it's easy for you why are you complaining about trying to make it harder for yourself?

I don't hate Skyrim, but the NPCs really aren't the best example of a "living, breathing world". Often when you're in the middle of a fight, they'll come and randomly start talking to you about their cousin who sells apple seeds or some crap. Not to mention talking over each other when you're trying to hear your next quest.

"Hello, stranger. My brother is very sick and desperately needs these herbs to--"

The worst part is people think it's a pinnacle of RPG genre when it's like somewhere near the bottom.

By that I take it you prefer Morrowind. (Or maybe Daggerfall?) :)

I had three major issues with Skyrim. One was the way the perks pretty much held all the value for a skill. You basically needed a lot of the magnitude-based perks (+20% to damage/defense etc. or the perks that reduced spell costs) just to keep the skills up to par, which meant a lot of leveling just to get those specific perks, which really made character growth feel likie a chore once you got past the baby phase where you level up every time you trip over a dead Draugr. I really think they should ditch those kinds of perks and make your skill level determine the overall magnitude of its effectiveness. Perks should just be extras that define how you use the skill.

Another issue was that I didn't care for the total blank-slate start. I know a lot of people can't handle making those decisions so soon, but I know exactly what I want to do with a character when I make them, and it's a lot more fun having a character who's defined as an individual. That's really the point of making your own character in the first place isn't it? I want to have a character who has a unique set of skills that he can actually rely on iin a jam. It's not enough to just have a slight edge in a skill. It needs to be high enough that it's something you would actually turn to when your back is against the wall. That's what I mean by 'defined'. A character who'se true to their intended purpose and doesn't resort to totally out-of-character tactics to get things done. So I'd like to at least have a choice to define my character right away. (Honestly, if there's one thing I think Oblivion handled very well, it's that it was very easy to make a well-defined and unique character.)

Both pale in comparison to my biggest gripe, however: the fact that they cut out Speed, Athletics and Acrobatics in the game. -__- I still can't believe they did that. It limited the game so badly, and in an environment where abilities like that would have been so useful too. With no speed-based skills, you basically limit combat to just ranged or not ranged. Having those speed skills gave combat an entirely new dimension to work with and gave you so many more ways you would use your other abilities. It meant you could have a character that could fight at any range regardless of their abilities. Combat is so much more boring when you can't dodge anything. (All you can do is just awkwardly run around to kind of get out of the way of some things, which isn't as engaging.) It's also less fun to fight multiple enemies without these skills.

I like the world of Skyrim itself and the game's visual design and I love the dragons and the fact they show up wherever the **** they want to. It looks great of course, and as far as interesting characters, I did at least find the conversation with Parthurnaax very entertaining. I wish they'd made more use of their dragon language with other characters and enemies speaking it even if they lacked the Thuum. Still, Elder Scrolls has gotten to a point where it needs to start looking to other games for how to improve. It needs to look at other RPGs for how to make really interesting characters that you can get more attached to apart from deciding to not kill them for their gear, and they need to look at real actio games for how ot proceed with combat because although they fixed some of the problems with Oblivion's combat, they're going to need to step it up if they're going to match the climactic fights of other games. Being a big, complicated choose-your-own path type game can't be the excuse for having really simple combat anymore.


"I lost a necklace my mother gave me. Can you help me?"
"uhhh okay"
"Great! It's in the middle of this ancient cave filled with Draugrs!"
"........."

Yeah, they walkked in there and found it full of monsters, but even though they freaked out and ran away immediately, they somehow managed to 'drop' their item three floors down through a series of twisting passages and locked doors. XD

Actually had a pretty good quote last night from an exceptionally dumb NPC.

Has anyone (like for example Sid ;) ) tried the new combat mod for The Witcher 2? I was thinking of getting it and replay the game, but from what I've read on the redkit forums it sounds a bit rough (some actions not properly register etc). I was hoping to get a short review to know if it's worth getting, or if I should wait for a patched version/play vanilla.

Well yeah I can't resist good games :p

It's a brand new mod, bound to have bugs and yes it does have bugs I'd suggest not using it if this is the first time you're playing the game, but if you're in the mood to frack around with the game, then go ahead. Flash is an amazing modder, he completely changed Witcher 1 with his FCR1 mod and he'll no doubt make Witcher 2 much more awesome as well just needs more time. They recruited him for making FCR1 for Witcher 1 and now he's the gameplay director on Witcher 3.... sooo yeah he does this in his free time will have to wait for a definitive version, but it's damn fun even right now assuming you can handle a few bugs.

Yeah it's called lazy design, same as AC. I was excited at last year's E3 because then it wasn't "Press X" instead we got a wheel to do stuff. Then someone pointed it out to me in the new gameplay videos since after that it's become BSmountain gimmicky game and so all my excitement died and turned to disappointment. They dumb everything down so that even idiots can play their games, same has been happening with AC.

Still I'm not saying you shouldn't like it, if you do well good for you. Just stated why I am utterly disappointed.

Flash is a god among men and yeah he's working on fixes for different stuff. Just a warning that it makes the game tougher(unless ofcourse you play on easy). Basically in Flah's mod, easy=piss easy, normal=handicapped AI, hard=AI at full potential, Dark=hell.

The more responsive the combat gets the more fun it is to play on tougher difficulties. I think I played on hard (not the one with perma death and stuff), so will probably give that a try again.

Sounds kind of sarcastic to me, actually.

You're right though. They seem to just keep trying to put their games on autopilot without you noticing too much. XD Really, when you're going to streamline something like that, I should be done so that the playr can do more with that ability or more in addition to that ability. For example, why is aiming your gun totally automatic in DMC? Because you're expected to do a lot of other things while shooting. SO they streamlined the aiming to allow players to move and fight while shooting continuously. In addition, the reward for one successful hit is pretty miminal. If you just streamline something and don't compound that function with other abilities, it just becomes the same thing it was before but on autopilot. XD

Automatic actions can help to make sure the game works the way it's supposed to; i.e. if the player follows the rules and plays effectively, the game responds with the appropriate rewards. But overdoing it just starts to beg the question: what's the point if the stuff you're doing is so easy that you don't even have to try? I mean, the game doesn't have to make you fail, necessarily; you dont have to die every time you make a mistake. What I'd say is important is having a big enough gap between the results you get barely trying and the results you get at the top of your game.

but at some point (IMO) the franchise was hard(er)... (in AC1 to be more specific), I believe when people say AC1 was hard they aren't trying to say it was the hardest thing in the world, but compared to the rest of the AC games it was the hardest, at least in my opinion it was...

Number 13:

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BNmWVnJCEAEkgeS.jpg

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrarium_%28book%29


In the late 21st century, humans have been forcibly moved into an enclosed network of domed cities connected by travel tubes known as 'The Human System'. The outside world was left because of extreme pollution, and the cities rely on harvesting the seas. Inside these cities, (called the "Enclosure") taboos extend so far as to make uncovered legs and unpainted faces a horrific sin. Due to likely ongoing large scale social engineering there are 12 stages for mating but most women have their reproductive organs removed or are used as breeders starting at the age of 13.Fear of the outside is extreme, another aspect of the social engineering that was incorporated into The Human System. Hence it is called the "wilder" and people who enter these lands legally on maintenance work are called wildergoers. Exiting The Human System without permission is illegal and might result in execution.
The book focuses on a man named Phoenix and a Wildergoer called Teeg Passio, daughter of a renowned deconstructer of the original Earth cities whose pieces and materials were used to create the Enclosure. The book details how they and a group of others escape out into the wilds and find an outside world they didn't expect.

Damn these teases. damn them aaaaaaaaaaaaa

Guess that's the age of the internetz for you. XD The mankind has developed the technology to instantly tell himself what he wants to hear...

And look at all the good it's done us. -__-

All that aside, Lost Planet 3 set to come out at the end of the summer. :) I laways regarded LP as a shooter that could potentially be one of the best by far if it really managed to get all the elements of the game in balance. WIth the right balance of enemies in well-designed levels and with the appropriate tweaks to gameplay, it has potential to really hit some high points. :D I've always felt like it was held back by the typical expectations of a shooter to have a bunch of Halo-style multiplayer modes and to be some kind of big phenomenon online, when its real potential was in its epic giant bug-killing action.

Even though the E3 trailer makes it look like a lame Halo tag-a-long, the screenshots show quite a few epic-looking Akrid. If they can get the proper amount of screen-time for them they could end up with a really awesome game. Humans are fun to pick off, (and so are the mechs; I miss Mech Assault) but not for more than one stage at a time...preferably less.) Also, I hope they keep that gun-sword from the second game. 0__o

But what's the point of doing anything with the previous Prince? (Hasn't his life been problematic enough already? :D )Forgotten Sands already made it clear that there isn't much left to do with it. The prmise of FS itself was kind of a long reach to begin with. I don't want Sands of Time to become a crutch like AC; especially when it's already kind of not working.

In any case, the news could be anything. Someone on the PoP forums posted something indicating that it could be a mobile game. I'm expecting it to be more info about the Shadow and Flame remake they've already announced because that's the least remarkable thing I can think of. XD

But what's the point of doing anything with the previous Prince? (Hasn't his life been problematic enough already? :D )Forgotten Sands already made it clear that there isn't much left to do with it. The prmise of FS itself was kind of a long reach to begin with. I don't want Sands of Time to become a crutch like AC; especially when it's already kind of not working.

In any case, the news could be anything. Someone on the PoP forums posted something indicating that it could be a mobile game. I'm expecting it to be more info about the Shadow and Flame remake they've already announced because that's the least remarkable thing I can think of. XD

The Old Prince is the real Prince. One who use to be noble who found himself trying to save the world to undo the wrong he did. The Sands of Time trilogy was excellent, so excellent I bought the HD remakes, and I still think its better than the Cell Shaded new prince. Forgotten Sands does NOT show there is nothing left for that Prince. It shows the dev team was crap. Forgotten sands was supposed to take place between Sands of Time and Warrior Within I believe. So why do we have stupid skeleton enemies. They got rid of the puzzles, the great combat and the enemy archetypes. Not to mention they changed the graphic style. That game was a disgrace to the SoT trilogy (now saga), as it didnt use any elements from the trilogy whatsoever.


to those playing the last of us, did anyone notice Pupil dilation?? in different lighting and times of day I mean...or am I just stupid? :|

You are stupid
