Did Molten facility dungeon with guildies the other day and were doing the evil ass testing room right
So we got into the safe corner and then I turned my camera around and yeah.
Inside of Nox….
Always wondered what my insides looked like.
I find this interesting, especially considering they’re not limiting availability of anything. ALL content will be available to free players.
Their currency system also sounds a lot like the GW2 model in that players can buy the ‘real money’ currency REX and then sell it to players in-game for gold.
Let’s do the TL;DR first. This game’s terrible but if you’re really into TWD, you’ll probably enjoy it.
Now i’m going to be wordy because that’s just how I roll. I was thoroughly excited to play this game because I’m not only a WD fan but a zombie nerd to boot. I figured they really couldn’t go wrong with this, and thought we’d see something on a bigger scale than the critically acclaimed Episodes released by Tell-Tale Games. I mean, you get to play as fucking Daryl. That HAS to be awesome, right? Surely you can’t fuck this up Activision.
Well, they did. I honestly don’t even know where to start. Let’s start with some basics. Graphically this game isn’t nearly on par with anything released in the last 5 years. It’s not terrible, but the textures are just really shit quality and never really look the part. During one of the ‘missions’ I was seemingly overwhelmed by a hoarde of zombies that ALL looked identical. Every one of them. The same basic models are used throughout. I don’t think I saw a single ethnic zombie, just various caucasians. I’m sorry but where is this game taking place? Because it’s certainly not in the deep south, and definitely not in the vicinity of Atlanta which has way more diversity than portrayed.
The mechanics are the game are extremely clunky and never really make sense. I failed to see the point of sending out one of my ‘survivors’ to get anything because there’s so much shit thrown at you that you never really have a need to send them scavenging. Of course, I sent them out anyways because lolgamemechanics. I think I had maybe one of the 5 or so you acquire who actually returned with something. The rest died. I felt like they ‘should’ be doing something, but their value was never made evident.
As most of you know, the Thursday bounties will take place at 9pm EST! So if you are interested in attending please turn up at Hawk Gate Waypoint about 5 minutes before!
Also, note that if the attendance is good, there is a possibility of doing our first Guild Trek after the normal bounties!
State of Decay footage from PAX East. You can read more about the game at UndeadLabs.com. It’s definitely one on my watch list, as I’m obsessed with all things zombie.
Colin Johanson on repeatable achievement points
I’m glad they are finally gonna cap these, seemed a little ridiculous to add an achievement point leaderboard and then make it possible to buy your way to the top of it.
Rich! Do you have a guess as to where you’ll be ranked? I do.
Lower than me. :)
The fine folks at Gamebreaker.tv are giving away 2500 keys for the upcoming Neverwinter beta. If you’re into dungeon crawlers, or like the thought of being able to design your own dungeon and play it in game, you might be interested in this!
