  • MMO idea, massive list of names

    Vrika said:
    It doesn't work. For it to sound good the voice actors would need to say every line where player's name is separately for every available player name. That's too many lines of voiceover.

    It's much better that writers just find ways to circumvent the use of player's name.
    I don't think it works that way but im no programmer perhaps someone else could chime in. Madden football game for instance uses hundreds of canned responses , long sentences where they inject <player name> into said phrase. The CPU is just swapping the name out on the fly and it sounds VERY smooth, you cant even notice it. This wasn't always the case in Madden but with current tech its done very well.

    This game has a lot of good mechanics at play , it's the game fallout 76 should have been. I think a slick coat of paint could bring this game off life support

  • Red Dead Redemption 2 still surprising me 20+ hours into the game.

    SPOILERS & WALLS OF TEXT AHEAD

      One of the cool things about Read Dead 2 is the random missions you find when navigating the huge open world. There are no exclamation points above NPC heads you simply get a flashing white circle on your mini map or hear someone calling you out or calling you over, Its all very organic and random none of which is in fixed locations. 

    One such example of this was a week or two ago when i was on my way back from fishing heading to town to sell my catch . As Im going through the woods off the beaten path of the road i hear someone yelling, "Help, Help"  finally i find a guy laying on the ground in pain begging me to help him with his snake bite. I don't remember all the options but i did choose to suck the venom out and getting a good laugh as my character responded to the NPC, he better not tell anyone about this ( It was close to his crotch  :D)


    So a few play sessions go by and last night I'm heading into one of the smaller towns to play poker and i hear some guy outside the general store yelling "Hey buddy, remember me" as i approach the guy he is sitting next to another guy who is goofing on him that "Hey this is the guy who sucked your leg"  The guy i rescued then offers to buy me anything i want inside the general store, 1 item on him.

    What made this event so unique and unlike any game i had played before was the organic nature of the whole event and the time that elapsed between it. There was no cut-scenes , there was no forced options from the start when i found him to the finish of the event when he offered to buy me whatever i choose as a reward from the store. I mean could have easily just shot and robbed him when i found him, I could have just kept on riding by when he called me over for a reward, when he offered the reward i could have just blown him off and kept on riding by. There was no fixed amount of time for the event to trigger, The npc never told me to meet him in town at a certain time. It was all by CHANCE, From start to finish.


     What makes this game so special is the organic nature of everything in its world I could give you a dozen other stories like this one from all aspects of the game, I can't remember which review i read this in but i think this quote pretty much sums up the game " You don't play Red Dead Redemption 2 you live in its world"

    I really want to play Warhammer Vermintide II, but I'm on the fence about it since it's pretty much co-op only, and honestly, I'm getting sick and fookin tired of dealing with elitist little turd kids who whine about you not doing everything exactly perfect.

    Anyone have any experience with the community?  Is it pretty chill to join a PUG and have some fun without having to be a grand master, millisecond perfect expert in all parts of the game?
    I haven't played it recently but played a ton for the first few months following launch and had no issues with toxic or elitist types. The action is too frantic for anyone to stop and be a dick or give you a lecture lol.

     Im my experience there is usually one or two amazing players in each pug that end up carrying the run, Get the game its awesome.
