Ye Olde Medieval Simulator! (Kingdom Come:Deliverance)
‹ Previous12
  • What do you get when you remove all the fantastical beasties from Witcher 3 and make it first person?   KINGDOM COME DELIVERANCE that's what!



    But forsooth!, you'd be wise to tread carefully here traveler. I've been watching the beta trailers for this on and off, and it's apparent that whilst first person swordplay looks pleasantly brutal, the 'controls' can make it a tad more punishing than it ought to be. Plus it's being made by some dodgy eastern European developer, the kind that churns out stuff like 'Gothic' - a series that secures a small loyal devout following that's too blinded by their faith to recognize that the game is, you know, shit.

    Shiny armour effects aside, this seems to lack a bit of spit and polish (sic) And the voice acting outside this trailer is abysmal. However, it's an open-world western rpg so please please please be good etc.

    I saw a video last year where a man talked about implementing the properties of chainmail accurately. I was impressed, to be honest.

    Racism, Tempy? I know there was an argument about the lack of Moors, but I think that's maybe an impossible situ. Are there any samurai in it? That'd massively influence my decision to include them. But I'd be wary about the promotion of violence unless several races were involved (presumably these white dudes are Christians?).

    I'm still really disappointed that it doesn't have multiplayer, though, because I think that MMOBattles could be ace with the right people. I said the same about Flashpoint and it's never happened. Teamwork on a grander scale.

    Nah you're alright bruv, I have my own stance on this stuff and it's more complicated than just separating folks and their works. You do you.

    Deffo an interesting bargain bin purchase. It's riddled with bugs at the minute but hopefully it'll be patched.

    Yeah, this is normally the sort of game I’d have been all over, but it smacks of being something unfinished.  Will be interested in how it looks in a couple of years.  Certainly not into the wanky sentiment of ‘this game was made by a cunt so I’m not buying it’ bollocks.  Looks to me like this game was made by more than just one person.
    They laughed when I howled at the moon.
  • It's not a wanky sentiment, it's a perfectly reasonable one. Man's a fucking tool.

    I'd also subscribe to the not giving money to cunts angle.

    Of that I’m sure, and if the game had been made by him alone I’d be right there with you.  But it isn’t.  You should probably not watch any more films, because there’s certainly a tool or two on the staff of most of ‘em.

    If I don't buy the game I don't think this fella will just jack in this racism lark.

    I still bought MGSV despite finding the Quiet and Ground Zeroes fanny bomb stuff deplorable. I dunno. A second hand copy might be a happy compromise?

    Guy is the director. Not that I particularly care as I have no desire to play it anyway.
  • Yeah but he's the Lead Dev. I do often avoid films with assholes in prominent positions who are getting the lion's share of the money and exposure from creating them. Same with games. I am not judging anyone who buys it, but I am going to argue against the idea that it's a wanky sentiment to not want to buy a game because of the politics involved. The other staff involved may agree or disagree with him, the difference being they're not writing massive screeds online about their racist, sexist beliefs. There are so many games out there, it's easy enough to just buy something else.

    We’ll agree to differ, then.  I stand by it being a wanky sentiment when other peoples jobs hang in the balance.
    They laughed when I howled at the moon.
  • So anyone who isn't buying is fine, but people who have elected not to buy it because of the words of the Lead Dev are actively harming the company? Not really.

    Oh I doubt it because not enough are that silly.

    I’m being facetious, Tempy.  Forgive me.  It’s fine that you have that view.

    Sup with 'the guy'?
    Hairlo?
  • For me, part of the issue with this game as well, is like with Rimworld, the Lead Dev's views are reinforced by the systems in the game. His views on race and gender have filtered into the systems that have been designed.
