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. Also: Calvin & Hobbes. All of them.
Plays A LOT of video games (no sports or racing games though!).
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 dang 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 UX Design job in the Gaming Industry.
Profile Picture is about 3-4 years old, but I like it. It's me at Epic Games, getting to hang out with all the awesome game devs who were working on GoW3 at the time.
My profile name means nothing. I thought of it on the fly, and it looked silly enough to work. I regret the all caps though. Sorry!
Month and a half to go till I can finally start dishing out the pain with my Exile Human Spellslinger!!!! (In the meantime, I’ll be playing with my Cassian Engineer, DrHeimerdinger, in the beta! —yes, not very original, lol).
The world is a better place, thanks to the efforts of these awesome gamers!
Some very well written thoughts, scotttheduck and LivingTheBlue. Thumbs up to both of you!
I guess these days, I do expect better for my money. Oh well.
So the first expansion covers only three maps and a story? Sounds a little light for amounting to a third of my $25 bucks I spent on the Season Pass, but then, maybe I ought to be managing my expectations better.
Well, I’d say that until any of us has actually experienced crafting a game of this scope and under this much public scrutiny, that we withhold bashing the man and his team. It seems a little unreasonable to expect so much quality and precision out of a pre-alpha when fully released games these days come chock full of bugs.
Maybe that right there does demonstrate how my own standards have fallen on game quality these days, but as games grow more and more complex, it only seems fair to assume that a greater deal of effort will be required to squash the litany of bugs that come with them.
I’m not sure why you’re attitude has to be so negative either – maybe you’ve had a bad night or today hasn’t started off right. Maybe you’re not reasonably managing your expectations. I don’t know, but whatever it is, I hope you have an awesome day and can take it easy.
This is some incredible work! I’m really impressed with the progress so far. The graphics, physics…it’s definitely unpolished, but to see it begin to all come together is breathtaking!
Just give me that iPad port, and I’ll be all over this. I dunno, it’s just hard for me to play this at my computer. I’d rather have it on my iPad while out n’ about, or laying about in bed.
I imagine Infamous: Second Son would sell a fair amount of copies. I can’t speak for others, but I’ve been starved for some big blockbuster titles on either new consoles. Titanfall managed to scratch that itch for me on the Xbone, and Infamous here on the PS4. I’m really looking to E3 to show me some great new titles coming our way, but for now, I guess I’ll go into cryostasis until Watch Dogs hits next month.
Edit: Oh! I think Wolfenstein hits next month too, woo!
The game will be a free-to-play title with microtransactions but it won’t be pay-to-win and nor will it require a subscription.
Do any MMOs ever say they plan to be “pay-to-win?” lol.
I’ve been having a blast with the new content. Even some of my friends who thought DIII originally sucked have come back to play, and they’re having a kickass time. Been extremely pleased so far. Keep up the awesome work, Blizzard!
Wouldn’t it be its own?
Routine, Quadrant, Alien: Isolation, SOMA…I don’t know if my heart can take all these terrifying games, lol.
I hear great things about it from several of my co-workers, but right now, my money’s already invested in a Wildstar preorder. Needed a little break from the fantasy setting to go enjoy some Sci-Fi action.
What don’t you like about the interface?
Star Wars: Luke’s Fortune confirmed.
I’m glad they’re allowing a day/night cycle for the game. After beating it, I was kinda bummed I couldn’t go zippin around all flashy-like at nighttime in my neon sneakers.
