Agreed.

I'm fucking calling it, Rainbow Six Siege is the most fun I've had in a FPS since F.E.A.R
The community isn't toxic, the game is fun, the guns balanced, lots of people are on the mic and are generally helpful. First year has free DLC (maps and operators) for everyone.
Haven't even seen anyone talk about it. But I will hype it up in as many threads as I can.

FPS games have never been good. Doom, Quake, it's all boring and uninspired.

People who played Unreal were adolescent fucks, and people who play Call of Duty are adolescent fucks. Nothing has changed, you're not cool because you played Deus Ex when you were ten.

Shit games are shit, and you are a purveyor of shit.

The game WAS a military shooter which they couldn't find a publisher for before it got turned into SS3.

And the enemies that look and act like some from Doom?
They do so because they were from a concept that Croteam sent to id Software when they were hiring people for a new Doom game.
The 3D render model of the Khnum was even called Baron of Hell.

Not only the slow start but also the texture quality.
The ones in the urban regions are of much lower quality due to their age while the ones in the ruins are sharp and covered in stuff like parallax mapping.

Oh my God it's so weird to see my language again.

Here you go

War theme - After a somewhat "relaxed" and weird/quirky content in their new project Croteam decided for a very realistic approach in modern warfare.

Visual authenticity - To testify that it's about a truly next gen FPS we're presented with these incredibly detailed and realistic models of soldiers featured in the game.

Urban warfare - Judging by the first screenshots it's inevitable that the game will combine fighting in open areas such as streets and markets with entries in different buildings and facilities.

On Croatian technology - Template for this hyper realistic graphic scene is in the fact the amazingly advanced Serious Engine 3.

Weaponry - Drastic departure of Croteam's previous work on Serious Sam, weapons in their new title are based and constructed to be as realistic as possible as the current/existing weapons.

So glad that they decided to recycle and make Serious Sam instead.

The shooting mechanics in this game are fucking fantastic. Only issues it really has is a lack of diversity and a lack of balance. Revolvers are god like and the rifles are pretty much just below them, with the shotguns being pretty much useless for some goddamn reason.

Either way, some of the most fun I've had in a modern shooter. Makes the new Wolfenstien seem boring.

No no no OP, you don't understand. We want a first person shooter that isn't a rehash, doesn't try to push realism, and is a GOOD video game. Serious Sam 3 is 2/3 of those, it missed the memo that it was supposed to be fun, and not a boring slog unlike the first two games.

One of the most important things you need to learn in today's internet world is to recognize vocal minorities.

Consider your revelation as the first lesson, OP.

Yeah this. It's Backpedalling +MB1 all the time. Some enemy weapons have hitscans IIRC and almost unavoidable damage, which it could be the only thing you could get out of a formula like this, getting dodges and non stop action with cool moves and shit.

Serious Sam has nothing of that actually. Finisher moves and that's it.
>>
>>324141291
It's nostalgia all day long dude.
The great old school shooter days were singleplayer campaigns about backpeddling and multiplayer that was just about fighting for the one good weapon that spawns and staying on top by monopolizing it.

I remember when they made duty calls and how it made fun of stuff Call of Duty does

and how nearly every single thing they made fun of ended up being in Bulletstorm

>>324141910
there are four hitscan enemies in the game and none of them is a threat if you have armor and half a brain

clones die in 3 assault rifle / pistol bullets and 2 minigun bullets
baby arachnoids die with a necksnap or 1 rocket
adult arachnoids die with like 4 rockets but they almost always spawn in places you can take cover so that's a non-issue
technopolyps are annoying yeah only spawn like 7 times in the entire game and they're all at key points where you either have cover or a health / armor buff

these guys exist for the sole purpose of unavoidable damage against uncoordinated players

l i t e r a l l y git gud
>>
>>324141910
there are what? two hitscan enemies in BFE? but yes they're a bad design choice, especially for a game that is pretty much purely for the gameplay.
but there are also enemies that shoot projectiles that can be avoided, which was the whole thing that started this.
>i want a first person shooter that has

and the reason there is no infighting is because there are only two "factions" all the enemies are united against you.

TL;DR: The old admin had a power trip and got pissed off that people still played when he lost interest. He also didn't like the fact that the players who still played regularly didn't suck him off on a daily basis.

Yeah, an actual "making of" of SS3 (or hell, SS in general) would be pretty neat.
Once it was a military shooter, then it was partly a Doom concept and another time it was a gritty realistic setting with SS2 assets.
>>
>>324146410
I've only played the first Serious Sam, so I can't comment on the other ones, but that one wasn't a rehash of Doom. Serious Sam's "walk into arena -> arena gets closed off -> enemies spawn and keep on spawning until a set number of them have been killed -> arena opens again" type of design wasn't part of Doom or Doom-like games at all.

Why do you have a stick up your ass anon? They're both good games.

Unless you're talking about Doom 4. That game is literally Halo: Demons Edition, you shill.

>>324148920
To be honest Serious Sam reminds me more of Douk than Doom.

>>324148920
Who really thinks it's like Doom, though? The only significant Doom-esque elements are the emphasis on strafing and the fact that you can dodge enemy projectiles. The games are fairly different in most other regards.

Even Halo-Doom looks better than Serious Sam. At least it has level design and somewhat more coherent art and enemies, despite having same level impactless guns and movement speed.

Because we don't live in some weird-ass alternate universe where you get to decide what a rehash is and isn't, where you get to decide how I spend my money and time, or what my opinions are, and that there's nothing really anyone can do to stop it that isn't illegal, immoral, or wrong.

SS3:BFE was my 2011's GOTY.
It's a shame that it was completely overshadowed by the year's other, numerous AAA releases (Skyrim, BF3, the year's CoD...)

it's also damn amazing game for having a mere 0.5M $ budget.

I'm about to play The First Encounter for the first time. Which difficulty suits me best if I played stuff like Doom (and The Plutonia Experiment) on Ultra-Violence and Duke3D on Come Get Some to completion?

nice. SS3 starts choking at about x10 multiplier (2000-5000 enemies per level), and perfomance often dropped well bellow 30fps, when I was testing GTX550ti.

Where, Metropolis?

Pic related is the count of every enemy type in that level, the list goes on a bit though.

Assuming you played on normal you should only get 70 or so harpies.

How long until the next real SS game? SS3 was so unsatisfying with its recycled materials that didn't the game play.

I think he was talking about BFE, and if so, I'm sure he means fight with kleers and small scorpions, and I can understand confusion, as Kleers keep spawning and getting lost in level, while scorpions walk around blending with background.

Don't wanna brag like an autist, but am I the only one that never had problems with Serious Sam's difficulty? I played every game on serious and I still didn't have any problems, it was pretty easy.

SS3 starts out like a generic 1st person shooter for a good few levels before it starts to get good.

People who like SS3 quit because it takes too long to get good and codfags quit when the game gets good

Don't get Revolutions. The development team is made up entirely of furries who fucking disabled voting on multiplayer servers because they kept getting votekicked. besides, SSw/v/ doesn't play the classic games, just the HD versions

>>324152451
>>324152957
Enemy health scaling is a server-side config setting. Of course, you can't change it after a Revolutions server starts because of the aforementioned voting removal.

>>324155603
The game gets significantly better when you get to The Silent Riddler. That was the point where Croteam stopped recycling maps from their failed military shooter.
>>
>>324155603
SW 2013 is a terribly made FPS. It's an alright first-person slasher, though.

The original's kung fu parody now becomes half-assed racism with Lo Wang being unable to drive properly, Japan and China being one and the same, and a bunch of other lazy azn digs.
The original weapon balance was complete garbage. Quick slice was useless with its huge interrupt and massive cooldown time for little damage. The pistol is overpowered, sluggish, and very necessary until the end. The uzi is a bullet hose that runs out of bullets before it kills anything (even with upgrades). The shotgun is a cotton candy canon on anything other than grunts. Glorious nipponsteel sword is the only weapon that satisfies.
Level design was all over the place and difficulty would whipsaw out of nowhere. A lot of levels had empty slogs and cramped fighting quarters. Explosive fixtures usually were placed in the worst locations for not blowing yourself up. Random ammo pickups threw away any consistency to fights.
Minibosses were more annoying than one with their bullet sponge nature. The ones that can only be hurt from the back just sucked the fun out of everything, especially on max difficulty; no block, no stun, no stamina no nothing, just hope you find something to hide behind when they charge.

The game could have been so good in the right hands.
>>
Serious Sam 2 was a fun game.

>>324158737

The original game was half-assed racism too, dingus.
