General Gaming / Re: Woldenstein II "controversy"
« Last post by MysterD on Saturday, July 20, 2019, 06:19:29 PM »
After almost 16 hours approximately, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (PC / XBox for PC Game Pass) is in the books as completed.

And it was fantastic!

MachineGames really nailed this one.

With a bat-crap crazy narrative & crazy missions (some of this feels right out of a B-movie...and I won't spoil this stuff here); really good voice-acting; edgy content (where to begin on some of this stuff?); and a game that is just tons of fun and is relentless in every way - it's hard to argue really against this one.

It's a blast!

It feels like Doom 2016's brother, more or less, with such great gunplay & technical performance. But actually, replace demons here with Nazis; and replace Doom's universe w/ the Wolfenstein universe (with now sci-fi elements and robots); with a much better & crazier narrative (since it really attempts to go for the jugular at this stuff and succeeds).

It's another overall great shooter that I've had the pleasure of playing this year, along w/ Metro: Exodus & Far Cry 5. And it certainly is a really awesome follow-up to the awesome Wolfenstein: The New Order.

If you loved DOOM 2016; Wolfenstein: The New Order; and/or bad-ass FPS's in general - you owe it to yourself to play this one.

Reading my posts up there are kind of funny.  This game turned into one of my favorite gaming adventures, partially because of the game itself and partially because of my head lore of a veteran spy or spec-ops guy who just didn't give a shit anymore.

I think what happened upon release was this: "OMG, this game's got all kinds of issues. It ain't good." The combat, shooting based on RPG-elements, lack of balancing, etc - it didn't help, this AP game coming out after ME2.

ME2 pretty much set the gold standard for the entire industry, on how to make the combat work on a game mixing RPG and shooter elements: make the shooting most important, making it feel like a shooter and react like one. ME2 was a complete reversal, changing the game for RPG/shooter hybrids, as most games before it (Deus Ex 1 & Vampire: Bloodlines) relied too much on dice-rolls and/or hit & miss rolls; and your RPG stats for aiming and shooting in certain categories.

But, here's the thing: Alpha Protocol succeeded in...pretty much everything else. Environment. Storytelling. Narrative. Character. And OMG, more choice than you know what to do with. Sure, finish the game in some 15-20 hours - but w/ so much choice, good chance, you're gonna replay this with not only much different character builds, but also much different journey entirely and a much different ending/outcome/permutations.

Alpha Protocol, especially as often as it has been dirt-cheap (before getting pulled from Steam and other services), will likely only get more appreciated, as people can really see it for the flawed-gem it really is...yeah, especially when they didn't probably drop $60 on it, since the game didn't really sell that well.

hahahaha I can't believe I cared so much either way.
I would guess, me posting in a thread all by myself only and bumping a million times for every little thing, that must've been annoying.

I also would guess, the thread was very disorganized...which it was. Threads look a million times better and are much neater, the way they are now.

I was just looking at that thread and can't even remember those posts. But yeah, it's like finding an abandoned vault in the middle of no where, and D is still there keeping things going.
I straight-up love posting & talking about games. I love playing them too, obviously. Don't think I'll ever give any of that stuff up anytime soon.

EDIT:
Funny enough, I did a search on an old game a couple of weeks ago (Can't remember what but there's a good chance it was Alpha Protocol) and you gave D shit for multi posting in threads, making them super disorganized.  Guy is like a librarian filing to the Dewey Decimal system now.
Despite everything - in the end and the grand scheme of things, it all worked out great, didn't it? ;)

I'm currently in the XB for PC Game Pass.

My first month (last month), I was in $1.
Finished Metro: Exodus last month, currently this month working on Wolfenstein II: TNC.

After the $1 month, it goes to $5 per month until it comes out of Beta
Supposedly, around this Fall it goes up to $10 per month.

The last film I saw was the new Spider-Man movie and it was pretty entertaining. Better than the first.

Don't think I ever mentioned it...

...but after fans been asking so much for it over on GOG, a few months back Blizzard gave GOG permission to add Hellfire expansion to GOG version of Diablo 1:

Link from Polygon - https://www.polygon.com/2019/6/5/18653740/diablo-hellfire-expansion-gog

ICYMI, way back in the day, Blizzard didn't develop this expansion (Synergistic Software did), but they (Blizzard) do own the rights to it and they don't consider it canon.

I am pretty sure that's an old picture. He looks like old aluminum foil now.
