Wander is back on Gamersyde

Wander is back on Gamersyde

Still more boring than boredom itself, Wander received an update yesterday which fixed some of the numerous problems the game has been plagued with since release. The main character now runs by default and there is no invisible endurance bar to prevent you from running after a little while. You are now free to run away for as long as you want, though we doubt you'll manage to escape your inevitable doom. The first person view which made it possible to see the world from the perspective of a dwarf Lilliputian has also been deactivated for the moment, so you don't risk breaking your nose when climbing up the jungle stairs. Sadly, all the changes that have been made do not make the game more interesting to play, and even having Davton join me for this new batch of videos didn't prevent us from dosing off as we were flying towards the floating island. The 10 minutes it took to get there as griffins seemed like forever, as you can see in our second video below. On the bright side, the griffins look quite impressive, but maybe by the time the developers were done with them, they didn't have time to build a real game around them. We can only hope they will manage to make the overall experience more interesting with future updates.

I don't get it... why would you not just go for a walk instead playing this?

if this was set in some photorealistic surburban world, i'd agree. but the last i checked there were no weird creatures wandering around outside...unless you're on acid. lol

Why no developer other than Crytek ever produceced something of some value with CryEngine ?? It is such a wonderful engine, yet nobody can use it well. So many amazing games could have been done with it, unfortunately I still have to see something really worth to be played....Lichdom, Enemy Front, State of Decay, this....all fails, so sad.

    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (6 Hours ago)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (6 Hours ago)

    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (6 Hours ago)
