  1. Had my last day at DICE today. Starting as a (procedural) artist on Embark next week! Congrats @grapen!!
  2. Arkane have delivered nothing but quality recently, so looking forward to this!
  3. cutscenes looks really good
  4. For some reason the game is a lot cheaper on EGS than on steam, will get it there then
  5. Yeah I'm in the same boat as Pogo here, this was the one classic that I missed playing back then. Will wait for a remake/remaster that both HP and dux approves before trying
  6. No, I'm saying it is entirely depending on the execution, both can work! You can run it safe, but might risk that it goes stale, like the avenger movies did for me and quickly lost interest. God of War is an example of the opposite where it did work. TLOU2 could be an example where not playing it safe might have failed. As I said in my first post, the writers have to balance between the story they want to tell and what the customers expect, and that can be hard.
  7. Okay, then I misinterpreted your first answer, apologies. I think just another Ellie and Joel adventure would been just that, fan service, boring and predictive, and very safe. But ND is trying to push the medium further that most other companies here and I think they deserve some kudos for that, even if they might have missed the mark. At least it wasn't some Game of Thrones ending where they just gave up in the writing room. What happens in the story is all the same to me in the end, it's the discussion around it online I have found interesting. In-game I've spent most of the time looking at the tech and all the cool details in the world lol
  8. you're talking about expectations there and I agree that that is something that is hard to manage, but you didn't answer what kind of agenda you think the director is pushing
  9. and what is that? and do you disagree with it?
  10. the white plastic part makes the cheeto dust light up in the dark, pretty neat
  11. Looks like they watched that dude on youtube doing flashy Dishonored playthroughs and made a game from it
  12. there is not much difference for 2 & 3
  13. https://www.ign.com/articles/mafia-trilogy-august-release-remake-mafia-1 You can buy it now on steam, and if you own some of the other versions you get the definitive editions of them as well. Supposedly Mafia 2 & 3 are 'remastered' as well, but I guess it is just support for higher resolution and widescreen stuff. Not much info to be found on what is new in 2 & 3. Anyway I am revisiting Mafia 2 for now
  14. Worn out the ps1 thps 2 demo back in the day, so this is cool. Bit disappointing that they still vacuum pack all the clothes to the character, makes it look a bit dated, would have added so much to get some movement on them
  15. Will get this for sure, Mafia 1 is one of my all time favs
  16. I started playing that ironically , but now I am 30mins in lol
  17. those characters don't look good at all :X
  18. 20% finished The Witcher 3 on xbox, and that is a much higher amount than I would have expected. If only people knew how many % of players boot up the multiplayer component of the game once, then never tries it again. That number is crazy high
  19. Been playing it for a while and agree with the points above. I think it is a streaming issue on vanilla ps4 that is causing the texel density being all over the place. And yeah all the NPC's in the slums looks like something they bought in an asset pack or something, looks like actors from a mid-budget tv-show hehe. The music is excellent though, hooks you right in
  20. It is a classy janky game, but I love it. In the beginning it can be really boring and repetitive. Once you've build up an army you can join campaigns and do your own sieges. There is a lot of dept behind the surface to explore, just need to spend some time with it before it sticks. But it is not a game for everyone!
