User Experience/User Interface Designer.
Does a lot of Web Development.
Graduated from 4 Year University with Degree in Software Engineering.
Enjoys SciFi and non-fiction books on the mysteries of the universe.
Plays a galactic ass ton of video games (no sports or racing games!).
Worships the Fallout franchise. Well...ok, I don't worship, but I really do like the Fallout games....
Uncharted has been cool up until #3 (Jeez Amy Hennig, since when is it good game design to stick me in an area with enemies that spawn from every which angle with infinite grenades in their d**n pockets!?!) *Takes deep breaths while counting to ten.
Thinks Diablo III is better than Diablo II.
I probably lost all respect and friends for that last statement....
Wants to eventually transition into a Design job in the Gaming Industry.
(in reply to Indigo) I think speculation this early is a bit immature though.
A game has to be experienced before such a judgement could be made. I’m guessing the response was from the article mentioning “Those who pledged more or bought better ships will get a better hanger.” Well, neither me, you, or our friend Jeffgoldwarf there, has played the game, and thus, cannot form an educated assessment of whether having “a better hanger” increases a player’s chances to win.
Woah, you’ve already played the finished copy of the game that features no subscription to play (apart from buying a copy/pledging) AND no Pay-To-Win (both are written on the front page of their website btw)?! Dang…I envy you….
That location at 2:00 → is that from the upcoming DLC, cause I don’t recall ever going there. Also I don’t remember fighting enemies like that skeleton at 1:14 either.
Not sure if bad memory or sneak peak at upcoming expansion……
Between the article and the video, the game looks kinda “bland,” but I’ll make sure to take a closer look when more news comes down the pipeline. Forming conclusions off an article and 3 minute video probably won’t do me much good anyways.
Man, Now I really want to give this a try too…make it a weekend project sorta thing. That guy did an awesome job!
One thing though:
“The cell-shaded effect was achieved by accenting all edges on the case with a black sharpie….”
It isn’t cell shaded! Correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought “Cel” (not “Cell” as written in the article) Shading wasn’t simply throwing a Comic-book stylized outlines to everything, but also the method of illumination an object receives. Cel Shading tends to exhibit those hard, graded steps in color, whereas Borderlands and this case for that matter, are using realistic lighting (well, of course that’s how the case is being lit, lol) across stylized, hand-drawn textures!
/end art nerd rant
Right around 1:26 in the video, the character hacks a forklift into moving up and I’m pretty sure the surprised NPC nearby responds with “Hmm…dog maybe?”
Hacker dogs. They’ll **** with your forklifts, lol.
Hopefully they’ve worked on the controls since PAX East, when I gave it a go. The way you controlled your character in Competitive Mode felt really clunky. Otherwise, I’m still a big fan of the art style and the light-hearted humor.
No, this won’t be part of the Season Pass.
Awesome, can’t wait for the update!
