Topics I've Started
18.05.2013 @ 03:51I remember some good comic book inspired games in the 90s, some of them on arcade machines (like that 4 or 6 player X-Men game!) and some on the Super NES. But then the 2000's brought as a LOT of garbage. Like that Spiderman action game based on the movie. Ugh, never finished it.
When Arkham Asylum came, it completely redefined the superhero and comic book based action games, proving once and for all these games CAN be good. The series are an example of good writing, good flow, excellent graphics, excellent combat, and ground breaking visual design and technique. No more simple movie tie-ins.
The highly successful Arkham series, however, might either come to an end with Origin or sprout a plethora of spin offs. So I wonder what will we see in the future in terms of good super hero games? Hopefully something in the vein of the Arkham series? What other franchises would you like to see?
As an X-Men fan, I'd like to see some of that. Maybe a mission driven third person action game where we can choose one out of 6 or so X-Men, depending on the mission at hand. Or a tactical approach to X-Men where we command a whole squad! Now that would be interesting. Something similar to X-Com with illustrated, comic-book style story transitions. As for the roster, I'd like a mix of the first (golden era -- Cyclops, Beast, Iceman, Jean-Grey, Archangel) and second generations (Wolverine, Storm, Colossus, Banshee, Nightcrawler, minus Sunfire for lack of charisma and Thunderbird because, well, he's dead). Maybe add Havok and Lorna Dane. OR the New X-Men roster.
I read somewhere a suggestion about a Daredevil game that would essentially be an Arkham clone. So meh.
What do you think?
13.04.2013 @ 21:29Based on a suggestion for a Witcher live chat, I have started an IRC channel called #thewitcher on GameSurge if anyone wants to join. I have already submitted a registration request so it should be persistent soon.
The URL: irc://irc.gamesurge.net/thewitcher
You can download and use any IRC client. There are probably thousands out there. A very simple option is downloading the ChatZilla add-on for Firefox. An advantage of using IRC is that we can all access the chatroom from virtually every possible platform out there, including Android.
There are times when the Hairy Bear is so full and active that everytime you refresh, a bunch of new posts show up. It's almost like a delayed chatroom. So why not have a real-time chatroom? It could be like a room of the Hairy Bear where we hang out with a virtual drink and talk about anything and everything.
There are currently two of us logged in, so come join us!
Edit: #thewitcher is now registered. Feel free to join and chat anytime you want. Maybe we could set some predefined time frames when most of us are available, like US-evening EU-morning or viceversa. In any case, enjoy it and let's keep it clean and civil
Edit: Sidspyker came up with a great idea: follow this link
and you can join our chatroom without downloading anything! Just drop by and say hi or read and laugh at us!
EDIT 2: Good news everyone! We have moved to a new IRC server called Xertion. To join please follow these links:
or for instant webchat:
This server uses standard IRC username registration and such. See you there!
13.07.2012 @ 17:33Let's face it: a lot of people in this forum use Steam and we all love the seasonal sales. 40%, 60%, even 75% off. It's nuts!
Essentially, it's shopping time for the rest of the season/year. This is one particular aspect where PC gaming shines above all other platforms: cheap games!
So for the current Summer sale, what games are you getting? And which do you recommend?
I am interested in Fallout: New Vegas, and both Y's (Oath in Felghanna, Origin). Any comments on these last two?
