    Pampers reacted to catfood in [CSGO] Engage   
    Hello all!
    This post is a little late on Mapcore because I have been moving and working on other projects also but I still wanted to share the release of Engage with the Mapcorians for who missed the release on the workshop.
    Two years ago BubkeZ and RZL came to me and asked if I wanted to work with them on a layout BubkeZ created in 2010 for CS 1.6 called de_engage and obviously I said yes.
    The three of us then started to look at this old layout and discussed what needed to change to make it viable for CS:GO and improve on the original design.
    RZL then made the first blockout with all the changes we discussed and handed the greybox level to me and I took it from there.
     
    The result:

    Man that video was painful. Seems to have missed the point of what the game was trying to do, and when you play the game you notice that the stuff that was in the first game is in this game, but it's just that Ellie isn't the one doing it because Joel isn't there as a guide, she's what 19 or 20 in this, she's a kid, an angry confused kid. There's a level of unrelenting psychological horror that permeates through every encounter, every hand-scrawled note, every vista. There's sadness, a melancholy, that's hard to deal with and if people wanna get angry at a lack of new gadgets then maybe they are approaching the game from the wrong angle.
    The fact that that guy in the video said the story was the biggest let-down is such a telling thing that it's hard to put in to words just how sad I feel for him. The story is exactly what needed to happen after the events of the first game, they even cover how she feels about in this game and why she is letting revenge drive her. The fact that you glimpse into the lives of other people trapped in this nightmare world shows her growing up as a person, as opposed to the colourful "happiness" that was in the first game, she was with Joel, they had a purpose, there was something to look forward to at the end. Here, and now? It's just dark, what point is there to keep going unless you find something to keep going FOR?
    The gameplay is non-stop horror, and I don't mean jump-scares and monsters and buckets of blood, it's horror at a primal level, the screams of the "enemies" are death-rattles from our ancestors, it's horrifying killing people, the violence is disgusting, un-called for, over-the-top and every single moment is reminding you that you'd rather be anywhere else but here, but you ARE here and you have to keep going and for what, revenge? Why? At what cost?
    It's the worst game I've ever played and simultaneously the best, the humanity shines through everywhere and if the lack of a new crowbar or carrying a box to climb into a window ruins the experience then you need to look deeper because it's worth playing and will be talked about in a decade as a high-watermark for the medium.
    Naughty Dog could shut down tomorrow and they'd still be relevant for a long time to come.
     
    All the bullshit about trans people, big muscley girls, AGENDA and oh-god-muh-politics is transparent as fuck and I hope one day for the planet earth to be renamed Fashbash Centriumius Prime.

    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

    Not sure I buy that first bit.
    I mean you can take it that the Ellie Joel story ends with Last of Us, that it was somehow final (which evidently it wasn't as they are both in this game).
    But using that argument I could say well God of War two shouldn't involve the relationship between Kratos and Boy as it would just be fan service, boring and predictive and very safe.
    Its a poor argument to make about a sequel. I think Radus point about consumer expectations is a very important one and is often the downfall of lots of games/IPs. Story or gameplay, making radical shifts in a sequel is a bad idea.
    Haven't played this yet and still looking forward to playing this.

    It's the story that we got and that he specifically wanted to tell, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. But it clearly isn't what the fans of the original wanted. At the end of the day, he's in charge, it's his thing and he can take it in any direction he wants, but I think he should also take into consideration what the expectations of the fans are. And it's also true that you can't make everyone happy and that some expectations are just unrealistic. However, I would say that at some point you have a responsibility to your fans. You have to acknowledge that you are where you are because they've responded positively to what you made in the past.
    It's a fine line to walk between the thing you want to create and the thing people expect you to make. It doesn't mean that you have to just produce the same thing over and over and over again, but you should be careful with the important details. In this case, it was the relationship between the main characters of the original. 
    Take the Alien series for instance. In Aliens we got a bunch of likeable characters, some of which survive to the end, like Newt and Hicks, which interact in a meaningful way with Ripley. The relationship that develops between Ripley and Newt is very similar to the one between Joel and Ellie in TLOU. Ripley and Joel are both finding a second chance at being a parent after having lost their own child. And people responded positively to that. Now, in Alien III, the first thing that's made clear is that Newt and Hicks have died off-screen... and people that were expecting to see the dynamic between the characters evolve were left being disappointed. Which is understandable. I personally like Alien III, especially the setting, but I can understand where some people are coming from. Funny thing is they could have made Alien III be some sort of spin-off and work without Ripley at all, while making a proper continuation to Aliens.
