Rome II Total War

I was amazed how a company could fuck up so hard on a game that put them on the map. Take Rome Total War, give it modern graphics and a higher scale, and add a few gameplay mechanics. That's all it would have taken. Instead, we got a DLC ridden, dumbed down mess with garbage AI and graphical bugs galore.

It depends on the person. I spent my youth playing videogames, yet my main source of information was videogame magazines. Magazines that would praise games I had no interest in, while giving little to no respect to the games that I did have interest in.

By the time the age of the internet came around, I had already lost all faith in videogame reviews. I was just surprised to see people voice their rage over the lies and deception.

Everyone says ME3 killed the franchise but ME2 is what did it for me.
Everything about it from ME1 was a step backwards and to the side imo. In ME2 it became less of a standard RPG and became a run-of-the-mill aRPG.
Also makeo/shit companions. At least the kept Garus and Tali.

>Wow tis third person shooter with barebones rpg elements, a shit story, shit characters and my choices having no impact is great. I cant wait for 3.

ME2 is what killed the series. It was even known before 3 was released that the plot was full of shit and there was a prothean character as on disc dlc.
Anyone who was remotely hyped for 3 after ME2, got exactly what they deserved and only have themselves to blame.

I was actually okay with the change of gameplay in 2. it was a letdown, sure, but I never played Mass Effect for the combat to begin with. I was always in to the plot and the exploration. Even ME2 offered some of that by way of discovering missions by scanning some planets.

Fable 3.
Fable I avoided hype for completely. I loved tlc too. Still one of my favorite games, definately in the top 10.

Fable 2 I fell for Molyneuxs hype. Yes it was a terribe game. But I have to blame myself for getting hyped.

Fable 3 I avoided all info on, becuase I knew it would be bullshit. I went in expecting Fable 2 at worst, thinking the devs would learn from their mistakes. No hype = no dissapointment I thought.

It was a shit game. Hype or not, I lose either way with the new Lionhead. Well old now, since a bunch of people wuit since then. Now they still milk fable and make even worse games.

Y'all niggas saying that ME3 ruined the series are getting it wrong. IT was ME2 that killed the series for me, being with it's pointless story, being with the general dumbed down mechanics. Only fools would expect good shit in ME3.

Moving to other series, Resident Evil 5 killed it for me, due to obligatory coop and it'd fast pced, atmosphere killing action.

How many shooters honestly still hold up today? For better or worse it did a lot of things that are now industry standards in the FPS genre. At the time it was amazing because it was there wasn't really anything else like it.

You should try it again, they really made an effort to fix it. I think Diablo 3 is the result of them looking at the huge black market on diablo 2 and watching baal runs and assuming that was how people liked to play.

MW2 was an overhyped disappointment, BLOPS was okay, but for MW3 I just watched and thought "this looks exactly like MW2". Didn't even buy it, got it as a gift at Christmas, only played singleplayer because I wanted to see the story end.
I haven't played a CoD game since.

Rome II should have taken the steps to go back towards its original engine is the problem. Empire's engine really only works for Empire or Napoleon, but for Shogun you could tell it was starting to show its problems. Aside from the numerous amount of bugs (which probably hit their critical point at Empire) the unit collision and animations for melee combat in general were terrible. Formations did hardly anything to give you a tactical advantage when everyone would just disengage and become a blob of enemies. CA should have gone back to their original engine for Rome and updated the shit out of it or made a new engine.

The combat is an utter button mashing shitfest and mind numbinly boring, but it has a decent storyline for an MMO and the world is somewhat enjoyable to explore, too bad when the storyline is finished and you explored the world your still left with a shitty combat system.

DMC/RE killed my faith in capcom. I still enjoy Street Fighter 4 and think Ultra is one of the better versions but the game was just added upon and the original version came out before Capcom fully died.

Capcom has done so much more than just DmC and RE. You're giving them too much credit.

>Rome Total War 2
I enjoyed empire once the patches and darthmod came out. Had tons of fun with it. Shogun 2 came out, and it was awful. Blatant cash grab, it was a smaller, worse version of Rome 1 and med 2. Rome 2 announced, my hype levels immediately launch into dangerous territory and i pre-order. I currently have 4 hours of playtime because of how awful Rome 2 is. I will never buy another CA game again. Instead, I will jump over to grand strategy games.

>Mass Effect 2
People who say 3 ruined the series are morons. I was in fucking high school and I recognized what shit ME2 was before I even got halfway through it. Turned ME into a shitty sci-fi cover shooter with RPG elements. Universal cool down, thermal clips, pants on head retarded plot, PLANET SCANNING. I didn't even make it to ME3. Needless to say I avoid bioware (and EA, obviously) like the plague.

>Fable 3
Loved the first 2. Didn't even get past the 30 minute mark on 3. Thank god I borrowed it from a friend and didn't pay money for it.

>red faction Armageddon

I could write essays about how much of a let down this game was (especially because the first game ends on a huge fucking cliffhanger it took like 4-5 years to come out), but

>First three hours of the game involve you doing a lot of boring shit as a character who proceeds to not really matter at all for the rest of the game, takes like 15 minutes to get to your first fight
>Fighting turned into "push X, occasionally push triangle to autokill an enemy, counter a bosses move, or advance to the next stage of a boss fight"
>All RPG elements besides leveling up (such as exploration, some amount of freedom in how you advance the story, actual NPC's to talk with, and random background elements to fuck with) were removed
>Main character turned into a huge retard for no reason
>disney stuff feels incredibly forced and is basically just "here's scenes from the movie rendered into 3D but with an anime dude in the background not really doing anything" instead of the original stuff that tied into the overall story from the first game
>actual plot is incredibly retarded, introduces all sorts of new shit out of nowhere to extend the game, requires you to play a GBA game so don't miss out on all sorts of shit in this ps2 game
>to pad for time the game literally says "okay, now do it all again" after you beat the (already very small and linear) levels the first time before it gives you the final boss

and you get the idea, they ruined literally every single good thing from the first game besides fixing the stupid spaceship segments (which are actually really fun now, to give it some credit) and making items worth using ever

Bioware was already dead as an RPG making dev team when DA came out. Mass Effect 2 proved this; it was a 7/10 3rd person cover-based shooter with RPG elements that failed to deliver on a number of promises, but we forgave it on account of its being a fun shooter.

The writing was all on the wall, though; no choices you made had any actual consequence, the loyalty missions were literally length-padding, the immersion fell apart once you realized the entire crew of the Normandy consisted of talking props and none of your squadmates moved around or did anything, and your previous actions in ME1 had little measurable effect on the story or gameplay of ME2. We forgave it because it was a fun shooter, but that creative bankruptcy had already established itself, and the result was a threequel that was content to wallow in mediocrity

DA:O came out before ME2. Mass Effect 1 wasn't anything amazing but I really enjoyed it because it was something new and fresh in sci-fi games, which were dominated by Halo and Gears of War, two games which I think have the most boring, shitty universes.

BioWare's handling of the marketing and promotion for Mass Effect was fairly decent, or at least I don't remember it being overtly tacky. Then we get Dragon Age: Origins throwing in our faces that THIS IS A MATURE RPG FOR MATURE GAMERS LOOK AT ALL THE BLOOD, WOULDN'T SEE THAT IN YOUR KID GAMES and it was starting to dawn on me that this company is not the company that made Baldur's Gate 2.

>Iwata: Miyamoto-san really persevered with Paper Mario this time. Exactly what was he particular about?

>Tanabe: Aside from wanting us to change the atmosphere a lot, there were two main things that Miyamoto-san said from the start of the project—"It's fine without a story, so do we really need one?" and "As much as possible, complete it with only characters from the Super Mario world.

>Iwata: That's a difficult task. In some ways that would be the exact opposite direction from recent games in the series.

>Tanabe: Yeah. With regard to the story, we did a survey over the Super Paper Mario game in Club Nintendo, and not even 1% said the story was interesting. A lot of people said that the Flip move for switching between the 3D and 2D dimensions was fun.

so its part Miyamoto's fault and part Japs with shit taste, though earlier in that interview they do mention that when they got their hands on an early build of super mario rpg it had mario fighting with a sword like a normal jrpg hero and Miyamoto said wait a minute wouldn't it be better if he used a hammer like in Donkey Kong?

The witcher 2.

I avoided hype too and Fable was the most banal and shallow RPG I ever played.
I will never know why people like it.

what is Mass Effect 1-3

Really? Prime? Throughout all the games in the series, Prime, a good game and decent vision of the series, that's what did it for you? It literally only shares being a fps with halo. That's like saying if halo was 2d it would be metroid. Let's just forget Hunters I guess...

>>265845208

I didn't like Other M though. Just pointing out the irony of the fanbase and its mixed signals to the developers.

see

>>265845248

/v/ threw a shitfit over the high heels, but its not worse than the art thats posted in the daily I LOVE SAMUS threads. In fact the shit posted in those threads is worse.

>>265845208

Are you retarded? Why are you having so much trouble seeing his point? He hit the nail on the head.
>>
>>265845373
they're just trying to get their combat multiplier even higher
>>
hey /v/ i hate all video games, i'm one of you
>>
>>265845479
I'm just pointing out that it's not ironic when fans don't like something.
>people like humanizing samus
>devs make a bad game with bad writing about samus
>people don't like it
This isn't really the fans fault, its the devs.
>>265845595
Nice useless post guy.
>>
>>265836715
is his a trap?
>>
>>265845784

He's pointing out that the fanbase does the EXACT SAME THING they bitch about the developers doing you dipshit. And that's the textbook definition of ironic. Whats wrong with you?

FUCK

You say it like people only hated it because of all the dialogue. People hate the game because it's a shitty hallway shooter with terrible gameplay and trash exploration. I know putting her in zero suit was fan service, but it's not the only reason people hate the game.
>>
>>265845324
that game was so shit and a massive massive massive disappointment
>>
>>265845965
But that's completely retarded, idiot.
>fans humanize samus
>devs humanize samus
>its ironic because the fans dislike the devs terrible writing
It's not fucking complicated, retard

This, fucking this

I preorder this game and... just to say that after playing I quit RPG forever.
>>
>>265822717
Mass Effect 2
Saints Row 3
Call Of Duty MW3
Battlefield 3
Pokemon White/Black
Halo 3
Sims 4
AC3
FFX
Need For Speed Most Wanted (New, obviously)
Spiderman 3
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Gates to infinity

There are more, but I can't fucking recall...
>>
>>265846271

No its ironic because

>fans humanize samus
>devs humanize samus
>fans dont like the way the devs did it
>fans proceed to humanize her the exact same way the devs did

Why are you so fucking stupid
>>
>>265822717
Dragon Age 2
Duke Nukem Foreva'
CoD : Black Cocks
F3AR
Dunk Souls 2. This completly crushed my trust in pre-ordering. Atleast It's made by different people so I still somewhat believe their games might be good in future.

Only Valve never lets me down.
>>
>>265822717

Dragon Age 2
Mass Effect 3 (also 2 in part)
DmC
THAT Metroid
>>
>>265846272
V was an uninspired III ripoff. VI was undeniably the worse game, but at least it had some fresh ideas.
>>
>>265846629

>implying CoD needed a single game to ruin it
>>
>>265836308
Had a good laugh.
Now please, off yourself and never ever post again.
>>
>>265846454
>Halo 3

Don't you mean Halo 4?
>>
Dark Souls 2.

It had all of the right elements thrown in there but something was just...off.
>>
>>265846907
Are you saying that CoD1 and CoD2 was anyhow bad?
What's the matter Anon, never had those fun LAN parties?
