On Steam.
I did not expect this. I was certain they'd use it as leverage to push people to use the Microsoft Store and Windows 10 Xbox integration.

But without Gamespy, will the PC version of 1 have multiplayer? What about the PC-exclusive rocket warhog and flamethrower?

I guess they did learn from the time they tried to force people into Games for Windows Live for Halo 2 on PC.

Not a big deal ODST I think was a $5 add on, probably similar to Reach. Even if it's $10 at the most, still pretty good price for native port.
Continueous support for MCC wasn't really needed yet here we are with more maps and two whole games added years later.

Dang, can't figure out all the hate for yooka-laylee. I just started playing and its a really good successor to banjo kazooie.
Granted, I know that it had a horrible "traditional" camera design when it first came out and I'm playing with the updated ability to control it, but with that fixed its good.

I won't say its perfect, since Laylee isn't anywhere as endearing/cute as Kazooy (I blame it on the design, its too ugly of a bat design for a girl) and the Arcade games are poor, but the platforming, plot and other characters are solid.

So in regards to SSBU, I wanna know one thing Is it just me who has huge issues with the controls in this game? Or is it the fact that I'm using the joycons + grip instead of like a pro controller or something? I feel like some inputs are just extremely hard to pull off and it's frustrating me that what feels like what should be basic moves are just inconsistent and need like hours and hours of practice.

I can't even short hop for the life of me without doing the shortcut (x + y same time). Is this just me and I have to grind for weeks just to do basic manouvers, or is it just the joycons?

>>42083977
No, its not just you. It took a long time for me to get use to the joycons. Like i would hit up, and it would do L or R, or i would hit L or R and it would go down. Same with dashing, it just seems laggy.

My solution was to simply play slower until i figure it out / get a GC controller setup.

You can ask starshine how frustrated i was getting. First time I've legit thrown a controller in a long long time haha.

>>42083991
Well there's some element of lag to it. Or buffering or something. Like, guy's going to attack me, I hold R to shield, I'm too slow so he hits me, now I'm airborne and my R gets buffered to an air dodge and I die lol

But other than that, I just find standard moves to just feel like you need to be so precise that it's sucking the fun out of the game. It's not about fighting the opponent at this point, it's the fact that in training mode with no enemy, I can't consistently do what I want. I can't b reverse at will, it's either too late or too early. I can't dash, into a bair, I usually just don't turn around. I can't dair out of shield easily.

I guess it's not the lag so much that doing tech like that is so precise that it needs to be done within just a few frames, that it's just ugh. I am about ready to throw the controllers. Man I just wanna try out the Pro before buying one, I'm more just curious it some of the issue are down to controller choice at all.

>>42083977
JoyCons are fine tbh, controls in general are just weird as fuck. Down c-stick in the air will occasionally make you fast fall, doing left/right c-stick will make your character move but a Smash attack sone with the A button won't. You get weird happenings involved with air dodging like not being able to do attacks or recoveries after.


Anyone hyped for coming Google game announcement? They're releasing a home console (possibly) and they're making the newest Assassins Creed playable via a web browser.

Warm take:

CoD4(MW1)'s campaign is fantastic, but it suffers from the "Seinfeld Effect" because after it came out, SO MANY games copied so much of what it did over and over.

Started replaying it (Remastered version) in preparation for MW4.

Also in Pokemon LGP I caught Articuno and Zapdos.

>CoD4(MW1)'s campaign is fantastic, but it suffers from the "Seinfeld Effect" because after it came out, SO MANY games copied so much of what it did over and over.
Let me just say that I played CoD campaigns in this order:

CoD1, when I was 9 years old, at least 10 times. I had dial-up so I didn't even want to try multiplayer, but I was obsessed with the campaign.
Then BO1,
then [email protected],
then MW3. I thought this was the best, gameplay-wise, out of all of those last 3.

Then I tried CoD4. And I absolutely hated it. Could not get through it, not even halfway. It felt like I wasn't even doing anything! Like the game was playing itself!

[email protected]'s campaign may be absolutely busted garbage, but at least it feels like a game that you control.

>>42084798
>It felt like I wasn't even doing anything! Like the game was playing itself!
Tbf I kinda get what you mean, a lot of the game is about the massive cinematic-ish setpieces in almost every mission, and the really brutal portrayals of war and terrorism. I would say the actual gameplay does often take a backseat to the visual experience, but there are still tons of fantastic gameplay sequences, like for example when you sneak around the back of an enemy mansion, cut the power, and then storm the place with night vision goggles and lazer sights on your guns and just slaughter everyone in the house when they literally can't even see you. But that's also an example of something a ton of other modern military shooters ended up copying.
I just think CoD4's campaign--especially the remastered version--absolutely oozes phenomenal style and heavy grittiness and impressive detail in every mission. The use of those military-style briefings in place of regular cutscenes between missions is cool too. There is so much about the game that is iconic, even just the opening line to the prologue:"50,000 people used to live here...now it's a ghost town." Still has the capability of giving me chills.
The second mission where you are riding in a car through a war-town middle-eastern city and soldiers are executing civilians as they run through the streets around your car, and everyone is speaking a foreign language, and then it ends with you being dragged into a stadium, in front of a camera, and being shot in the face for national TV to watch...sure it's not really a gameplay-based mission, but it's such a brutal, visceral experience and really heightens the drama of the overall story.

>[email protected]'s campaign may be absolutely busted garbage


I M P L Y I N G

WaW's campaign was fucking amazing and no CoD game has come close to matching the sheer brutality and grittiness of it since. And it's also one of the only CoD campaigns that actually has co-op!

I mean that even when I'm in full control of my character, I don't feel like I'm doing anything. The game is literally playing itself when it's a cutscene, but it's still figuratively playing itself even when I have control.

>WaW's campaign was fucking amazing and no CoD game has come close to matching the sheer brutality and grittiness of it since.

I didn't say it wasn't cool and artistic. I'm saying that
-Every time I play through it, there is at least one time where an NPC gets stuck and I have to restart the level
-The tank level is the actual worst thing in any AAA game I have ever played (lucky me, I guess I've managed to avoid anything worse)
-It's 50% grenades
-With the exception of Vendetta, there's absolutely NOTHING to the level design beyond just "keep rushing forward and spraying". The actual style of gameplay is the same in every single mission and it gets really tiresome.

I had the opposite issue. At least at the hardest difficulty.

CoD4 had at certain spots unlimited enemy spawns until you progressed past a point. This meant that in a lot of cases, sitting back in a safe spot trying to survive and dwindle the enemy forces down just... didn't work. You literally had to rush forward unsafely and die, hoping that this time you'll be able to make, just to make any progress at all.

Though. Dang, I still love the Nuke moment lol.
