The "moral choices" sound lifted straight out of the first game. They were one of my main dislikes with that game. Anyone who'd call them "moral choices" with a straight face probably doesn't know what that means, as they were pure comic book stupidity. The choices were between being an angelic saint or a cackling, moustache-twirling Bond villain. I was really hoping this game would be a bit more grown up than that, but it doesn't sound like it.
162  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PC] [Kickstarter] Darkest Dungeon on: February 12, 2014, 09:15:33 AM


This Kickstarter, which launched yesterday and is already fully funded, seems to be getting some traction in the games media, and for good reason.



It's a rogue-like with a very nice artstyle that seems heavily influenced by Mike Mignolia (of Hellboy fame), where the twist isn't that you'll eventually die (you will), but that your party consists of people with individual personalities, quirks and outright insanities that develop and change based on what they're going through. What do you do if one of your characters keeps mumbling about how you're all going to die, bringing the morale of the party down? What do you do when you wake up after sleeping, only to find that your fighter has eaten the entire party's rations during the night because of an irrational fear of hunger? Should you really bring along that character with a phobia against undead when you're raiding a crypt?



From the description on the Kickstarter page:

Quote
Uncompromising, unforgiving, and unconventional, we present a fresh take on the dungeon crawler that elevates the importance of sound tactics and a character's mental state over their gear.

You will recruit, train, and lead a team of flawed heroes through twisted forests, forgotten warrens, ruined crypts and beyond. You'll battle not only unimaginable foes, but stress, famine, disease, and the ever-encroaching dark. Uncover strange mysteries, and pit the heroes against an array of fearsome monsters with an innovative strategic turn-based combat system.

You will have to tend to characters’ spirits as much as you do to their Hit Points. But in these grim situations, you'll find opportunities for true heroism!

Darkest Dungeon is not a game where every hero wins the day with shiny armor and a smile. It is a game about hard trade-offs, nearly certain demise, and heroic reversals.

Do you have what it takes to survive in the forgotten corners of the Darkest Dungeon?

Features:

Quote
  • The Affliction System – heroes' personalities are paramount! Contend with paranoia, abusiveness, fear, irrationality, and a host of gameplay-meaningful quirks
  • Striking hand-drawn gothic crowquill art style
  • Innovative turn-based combat pits you against a host of diabolical monsters
  • Classic CRPG and roguelike features, including meaningful permadeath, procedural dungeons, and incredible replay
  • A distinctive game world featuring over a dozen unique playable character classes such as the Plague Doctor, the Highwayman, and even the Leper!
  • Town meta-game – tend to your heroes wounds, both corporeal and cerebral
  • Loot! Gold, jewels, heirlooms, and mystical trinkets. Not to mention upgradable armor, weapons, and consumable supplies.
  • Things That Once Seen Can Never Be Unseen...

The estimated release date is the beginning of 2015.

I'm in at the Adventurer level. smile

Yup, to the technologically adept, the actual news story is that you'll be subjected to targeted attacks over there. Unless your computer is filled with some rather serious security loopholes, you still need to actively do something to let the attackers in.

Targeted attacks are newsworthy enough, but the article is very misleading as it is.

I think the biggest roles I've seen him in were as a fluffer (that's what he was, right?) in Boogie Nights and as the bad guy in Mission Impossible 3. He owned every role he played and made it not only convincing, but fun to watch. He was also refreshing in that he never had the "Hollywood looks".

Before we go lumping people into groups here, I'd like to make it clear that I'm not an atheist. Atheism does require a bit of faith ("there are no gods. I can't prove it, but I'm certain!"), which I'm not comfortable with. Consider me a non-believing agnostic. To me, everything points against earthly religions being right, but who's to say there isn't something out there that humanity would consider a god? Not me, at least.

This is me as well, I am not really an atheist. The problem is that if you say agnostic to a Christian they assume you could be in doubt about the Christian God, which I am not. It's easier to just say I am atheist.

Honestly it's gotten to the point where I would rather avoid the subject in person. It used to be fun to argue, now it seems people either feel I need their help, or there is a certain amount of disdain about it.

Religion is an absolute non starter discussion for me in person (and for the most part, on the internets). It's 100% pointless to discuss.

Science isn't pointless to discuss though, and that's the big thorn in this discussion, the idea that evolution or the Big Bang are both "just theories". That is religion bursting into something it doesn't understand. Attempts to challenge this intrusion are met with responses as if religion was being attacked, when what's really being attacked is faulty and misunderstood science, and words that are being used to describe something they're not designed for.

Non-belief isn't a religion. The word "religion" holds a very specific meaning which you are twisting to support... something? I'm not sure what. You're implying that anything a person makes a conscious decision about is a religious choice, which is of course ridiculous. And militant? Give me a break!

This discussion has been a wall. Arclight threw out accusations against science that were easily (and promptly) debunked with actual arguments and evidence. His response was to completely ignore these arguments and this evidence and repeat his original statement along with insults and negatively loaded implications. Things naturally soured at this point. Only one side is actually presenting any arguments that can be backed up in this discussion, and that very same side isn't lashing out in aggression. Yet you call them militant?

Arclight isn't being persecuted here. He offered his viewpoint and challenged the one of others present. They responded with arguments of their own, but he saw it as persecution for some reason.

Religion is a personal thing, but once you toss it out in public and start to challenge the viewpoints of others (viewpoints not based on faith too, I might add), you must be able to accept that others will challenge yours back. Those who follow the scientific method are willing to accept these challenges and will argue back, but there's only so many times this forum can repeat the "but it's just a theory" argument before they grow tired of repeating the same thing that those of strong faith are unwilling to even read.

The very basis of a healthy discussion is that it consists of two sides that exchange information. Otherwise it becomes monologue. In this case one side only gives, but doesn't take. Hint: It's not the scientific side.

The PS4 version will probably follow pretty soon. "Stay tuned" is the latest message from the devs. There's already an announced PS4 version of the game, but only for physical copies AFAIK. I'm kind of surprised Microsoft had a quicker turnover than Sony about this considering both companies' recent history of indie treatment. Good for Microsoft and Xbox One owners.

Can I get a rough estimate on how far I am in the storyline?  I'm few missions past unlocking the diving bell.

You can check your exact position in the story from the menus. I believe it's called Synchronization or something like that. Go into the details and scroll to the left. The story is divided into memories, and you'll see how many memories you have left, and how far you've gotten in the one you're already playing.

I agree with some of the comments above about the eavesdropping missions being less fun this game.

I find it to be the other way around, by a wide, WIDE margin. The previous games expected you to do these missions in a very specific way, and punished you very hard if you tried something else. They could be incredibly frustrating if you didn't spot the intended route. In AC4 you actually have a lot of freedom to handle these as you wish, and the game doesn't punish you for making small mistakes. I did some pretty crazy (and fun) things during these missions without following what I assume might have been the intended path.

The problem with debates or arguments like this, is that its about RELIGION.

Where I come from is about RELATIONSHIP. I'd be the first to agree that Religion in the organized sense, has done more harm over the centuries than good. It was organized Religion in the Day of Jesus that took Him to the Cross.

Actually, the debate is about SCIENCE. RELIGION is a merely peripheral part of it, and only because CHRISTIANITY decided to start poking in places where it doesn't belong.

It's far less of a stretch now than it used to be. With the increased RAM in both the new consoles, neither should have any trouble handling indoor environments that are seamlessly integrated with the outdoors. The question is whether or not the developers want to spend the money to add this kind of thing, whereas the decision would previously have come down to performance and sheer console limitations.

I'm not disputing the power difference. I'm disputing the idea that all gamers should (or already are) concerned with framerate and resolution. Just because you place a high importance on it doesn't mean everyone else does (or should).

Many gamers might not care about these things if they come in blind and don't know about the differences, and I believe these are the ones you're really talking about. The people who know of the differences and willingly disregard them I believe is a much smaller group. They are probably those who own only one of the consoles and decided to go with the Xbox One. Despite making this choice, they might not be happy with having to settle with the lowest performance. The ones who've never heard about the differences will hear about them eventually though. The message is out there and people are talking about it (I mean, look at us!).

It's all conjecture anyway. We have very little to back up either side of the argument with here, except for the fact that there is a difference and that the two consoles have sold well so far. What will really be interesting to see over time is whether the PS4 will get the Xbox 360 effect where cross-platform titles are routinely purchased for that platform because they perform better there. My impression of the previous gen is that this was what gave the 360 its biggest momentum. The first, die-hard fans buy for the platform they consider superior, and then their friends buy on the same platform so that they can play together.

There is a rumor (wishful thinking?) that the early dev kits were using alpha level drivers that have since been optimized greatly, and that this is why, in part, there is such a disparity among these early cross-platform titles. Of course then there's the argument that as the XB1 drivers mature so will the PS4s, etc. etc. Who knows.

According to pre-release reports, there's some truth to this, but the same can be said for the PS4. The PS4's developer tools were finished 2-3 months (can't remember exactly any more) before the console's release, while the Xbox One's tools were finalized about a month before. There will always be post-release improvements to the tools (just look at what happened to the PS3).

Saying that these tools are the cause of the early disparity is wishful thinking though. If anything, lack of familiarity with the tools and hardware would have an effect. There have been no indications, through rumors or otherwise, that the Xbox One drivers aren't solid right now.

Also, the biggest disparity we've seen for the platform so far is with Tomb Raider, which was just released and probably wasn't started work on until pretty late last year.

Jebus, seriously?  Is it reflected on the listed price, so imported things just always look more expensive, or do you just know that when you ring up the price it'll be 25% more expensive?

I think the Norwegian import tax is similar, and most serious online retailers (including Amazon) will show clearly on the invoice and the checkout page how much you're actually paying in taxes out of the full amount you're being charged.

Yea but those are rendering at 720p like Ghosts. Its an either or tradeoff for devs. 1080p30 or 720p60 is the choice they have to make.

Not true. Forza 5, FIFA and NBA 2K14 run full 1080p/60fps. I will grant you those are sports titles and presumably may not be as difficult to get to run as smooth as an action shooter.

Out of those three I'm only somewhat familiar with Forza 5, but it's a good indication of how exclusive titles will be able to get around these limitations. Forza 5 features next to no full-screen effects, and those are the ones that take up the most space in the eSRAM. By keeping the focus on good art design and a clean presentation with no extra bullshit, 1080p 60fps is a far from insurmountable challenge for the Xbox One. It's only when you start stacking up effects, which most games have done for a while, that things become more challenging. We could end up seeing a change in the way graphics are designed for current-gen games, or the Xbox One versions of cross-platform games could be thrown under the bus. So far it's been the latter, but that doesn't mean it will continue to be that way.

The best part about SWG was how it detached itself from the traditional "you must kill monsters to become better" mentality. Who said other game systems than combat can't be interesting?

Digital Foundry takes a look at Tomb Raider.  Not the truest comparison as XB1 is capped while the PS4 is uncapped.
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-tomb-raider-definitive-performance-analysis

Gameplay Analysis    Xbox One    PlayStation 4
Lowest Frame-Rate    24fps    33fps
Highest Frame-Rate    30fps    60fps
Average Frame-Rate    29.84fps    50.98fps

Huh, that's strange. When this bit of news first broke, word was that both versions were uncapped. Perhaps they discovered that jumping above 30 fps regularly on the Xbox One version would feel worse than simply keeping it steady. This is a problem with Knack on PS4, for example.

The infamous FamousMortimer of NeoGAF is sharing good Xbox One news for once. He's got a track record for being right about the rumors he posts, and he has good sources.

In short, the rumor says that Microsoft will unlock 8 of the 10% GPU that has been reserved for the OS (read: Kinect) so far. Apparently 2% is used for handling the audio part of Kinect, while the 8% that will be unlocked deal with the video part.

What does this mean? Well, it means a respectable amount of extra GPU power will be available to devs, which will be of particular use when it comes to cross-platform titles. It's somewhat bad news for fans of the Kinect though, as this also means that devs will now have to make a choice between Kinect support or more GPU, and I don't think Kinect is going to win that battle very often.

NPD reports that the XBox One outsolde the PS4 in the US in December, and December 2013 was the Wii U's best month ever.

Only if you believe Microsoft's increasingly strange ways of defining "best selling". In this case they're specifically talking about earnings, which nobody would talk about using "best selling". The Xbox One costs more than the PS4, so it needs to sell less to achieve this "victory".

Got a cite for that?  Every single NPD report I find for December talks about units only.

Funny that TiLT talks about facts when this exchange happened.

Sorry, I had forgotten about this one. I read (and wrote that post about it) a commentary about that situation early in the morning before heading up in the mountains for the weekend, and I didn't fact-check properly, nor did I have the chance to respond and/or check for more information since I was gone for days. I most likely misunderstood the source I was referring from (and didn't link to it either). So yeah, I was quite likely wrong. Ideally I should have spent more time checking sources, but I was in the unique situation of not having enough time. I reached too far.

Now that I think about it, I believe the last-gen versions of the game will have differences from the current-gen and PC versions. I seem to recall them talking about this, mentioning stuff like reduced amounts of pedestrians and things like that. I would steer clear of any last-gen version unless you have no choice (or unless the reviews say all the versions are equally great, which I doubt).

This is a risky assumption. While technically correct, developers don't seem to spend much effort exploiting the capabilities of the system since it's not worth the cost to them. The result is that several games have ended up looking worse on the Wii U than any other platform, PS3 and 360 included.

My facts, correct or not, have no impact on your life or the future success or failure of the Xbox One. In fact, whether you completely ignore me or not has no impact on the future success or failure of the Xbox One, though it will impact a very minor part of your life.

Things would be better if you don't engage in pointless arguments with me. If you think I'm an idiot, that's fine. Just keep it to yourself and ignore me. Bickering doesn't earn you or me any rewards. It only serves to "pick a fight", even if I don't lift my hands to retaliate.

However, if I present facts that are wrong and you can present sources to show so, feel free to put me in my place. That's the kind of thing worth arguing about, and that's exactly the kind of thing that didn't start this line of discussion.

The sadder thing is that that's an insufficient reason to avoid the sequel.

Oh sorry, that's not what I meant. I'm not avoiding it, and probably will get it (meaning Infamous: Second Son) unless it reviews poorly. I'm just not excited about it. Titanfall I won't buy, even for PC, as I don't get much enjoyment out of MP at all.

The sad thing is that I really disliked the first Infamous, and I have no interest in MP. The result is that neither of the two "competing" March games makes me excited.  icon_cry

You're using a bunch of smoke and mirrors, TiLT, to draw an invalid conclusion.

On the contrary. You're using irrelevant sources to confirm your own bias. I feel like I'm being pretty clear in these last posts, but you're ignoring what I'm saying. At least it looks like others are on the same page as me here.

Fact: Estimates at launch were 10 million units combined for PS4 and XB1 through Q1, with PS4 holding a slight edge. This has turned out to be entirely accurate (actually, will probably end up being an underestimation).

Fact: Many people were guessing, based on MS's bad PR and higher price point, that PS4 would be outselling it 2:1 in the best case scenario (with some even claiming 4:1). This has not turned out to be the case.

Fact: I was talking about the expectations in this thread about both consoles being sold out until early spring. I've mentioned this several times already. I used argument A to draw conclusion B. You're using argument C to draw conclusion D. A and C are not related. B and D are not related. This isn't terribly complicated. You're building a straw man by arguing against an argument I haven't made.
