After playing the first on my PC, so incredibly psyched!

I'm glad my only quibble about melee kills (if you equipped the knife, it took more than one strike from the back to kill them so you could be alerted) has been changed to now have stealth melee kills and also non-lethal takedowns.

This seriously needs to be better then the first. Just something that plays well, isn't tedious and is generally quite memorable. I felt the first game was kinda living in the shadow of the STALKER.

The potential is there, now it's just up to 4A to prove that they can make it better and more polished than its predecessor.

The stealth kills give me a glimpse of hope.

Is anyone else put off by the whole mutant/supernatural thing?

It's like everything seems great & then there is these big goofy ball mutants charging around.

It puts me right off the game altogether.

I don't mind that mutants are in it. I do mind that they are pretty naff design wise.

Well, it is based on the books and anything post-apoc radiation related will have monsters or anomalies by now. I love their design of the rats and the Librarians. This one now seems to have more variety.

The most recent previews of the game have been very positive.

Previews are generally positive, it's very few websites that get to be fully honest about a game in that stage since you're being shown a little part of a game that could turn out to be tedious in the final release. Many don't even get hands-on. Heck pick a bad game, and it'll have a positive preview.

Now many companies just release the gameplay on their channel, and let fans or gamers garner the hype rather than needing publications or sites to.

This isn't intended to come off snide but I'm familiar with how things go down. These were hands on with feedback going both ways. What they were saying didn't sound guided.

It doesn't both me, but I get what you mean. I think a more interesting game could of been made if they solely focused on human dynamics and maybe replace the monsters with scavaging.

Well, the only post-apoc game with no supernatural stuff is I Am Alive, which is focused on human dynamics and scavenging. A little rough, but a uniquely playing game.

I always have a problem when games introduce the super natural or mutations. But if done right I can accept it. There are a couple walk throughs that show these moments and they seem to handle it pretty well.

Just a follow up on those previews. A couple guys who really enjoyed the first said they were surprised the game held onto what made the first one so great while only improving on it's failings. They thought for sure that the game would have been COD ified to bring up the sales.

I'm just hoping. There are not enough games out there for adults.

In the Fallout games the mutant stuff fits right in, but here I am just not feeling it at all. The atmosphere & everything works really well & it feels like the mutants are shoehorned in there for the sake of it.

Ah yes, that example of perfect, balanced, polished combat...

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that's my understanding of it anyway based on the little i've read about it. seems like it'll happen though. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog less risks (not like ubi are particualrly great in that regard anyway) and just barrier for them to do their job. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts Also, for the first time in BioWare's history, they are finally using full facial capture to record the actor's performance. Plus its the first time the Mass Effect team is using the Frostbite engine. (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @nostradamus: BioWare talks Mass Effect Andromeda squadmates, cut content and that missing release date: [url] Read 5th answer. (2 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Moonwalker: well, i'll on a leg and say its a "lie". It seems on par with DA:I, and if they think thats fine for a reveal trailer, then it doesn't bode well for the final product. (2 Hours ago)
