I wonder if we'll see some ps4 pro support since it doesn't even work properly with the boost mode.
No matter what, i still have to replay this.

My favorite Horror experience this gen alongside Alien Isolation.

One of the horror games I never got around to playing. Always thought the atmosphere looked great. Looking forward to giving this a try.

It's so they can brag they beaten a rorror game. It's like youtube let's plays but with a Box and "acheivements".

Horror games are meant to be played in hard difficulties with the lights off and headphones on.

I have installed a LED strip on the back of my tv and set it to a dim level.
It reduces eye strain but keeps the overal mood intact.

You're scared of horror games people? Good that's the point!

I would guess that would be to bypass the frustration not the fear. I know lots of people that have zero patience for demanding games and quit early if they get frustrated.

I wonder if it could bring back casual gamers to games more demanding of the player an gradually acclimate them back to it...

Could also be made to attract narrative games crowd from "Gone Home" and" Everybody 's gone to the rapture".

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @droezelke: sounds like the nature of E3 more than anything. the people there playing alongside you aren't necessarily the same sort of people playing in paid for servers with their clans. (36 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: Knowing they played with the known youtube BF players/experts, it surprises me. (37 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: They said the mechanics are there to use team play to your advantage, but that in the end the players didn't care for it. Ofcourse just 1 opinion, but not the opinion I expected. (38 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: Just read a preview on a Belgian site who played 2 days of BFV at E3, and their main complaint was that team play was hard to achieve, as the system doesn't really work for team play. (41 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Melmoth: Just read up on it. Itls developped by a member of Crytek while still working for Crytek and is based of the CryEngine, but it is proprietary to Ubisoft. How that works in terms of royalties (4 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Melmoth: Is the Dunia Engine Crytek property? I don't think so (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I mean they can keep upgrading it but why bother when they have more capable engines already. (17 Hours ago)
