Biggest disappointments in a game?

What are your biggest disappointments lately in gaming? I picked up Watch Dogs and really wish I waited. Its essentially a stripped down 'Splinter Cell' with some GTA elements thrown in. It brings nothing new to the table. I suppose its no biggie, being only 30$ thrown down the drain. It had potential but I found the story to be severely diluted by side missions.

 

I truly miss the days of a STORYLINE that had you engulfed for days. After beating Watch Dogs in 12 hours when I was excited for a 40 hour story... well... refund?

12hrs huh?  That is disappointing.  Maybe I will hold off on this until a later date.  Still playing Saints Row the 3rd and that has better reviews than Watch Dogs.

Don't get me wrong. It is a great game, but I feel duped. I expected 35-40 hours according to the devs for the main story line. I got 12 and it just ended... I kept looking at the time I put into it and told myself, wow this is getting good and I'm still 20+ hours from it being over!  However It was over... really wish I waited for a GOTY version with some bundled season pass stuff.

My biggest recent disappointment has been Spiderman 2.

The controls are really awful (when wall-running it's almost impossible to go in a straight line), sometimes the "web" doesn't always grip to buildings that are obviously within reach, and it seems really glitchy - I have now gotten wedged in a piece of scenery a couple of times - each time meaning I have to quit the game.

My biggest disappointment lately in gaming:  Dragon Age II.

 

Dragon Age: Origins was a great game... not perfect but a really solid game.  I thought they were starting a new franchise on the right foot with a ton of potential.  One of the major points was how you could not only make your own character but the race and class and such actually effected the story not just what you look like and what abilities you could use.  It was "Origins" afterall.  Again it was a solid start but not perfect and I expected Dragon Age II to improve/expand upon that formula.  Instead they threw out the whole "story tailored to your choices" in the second one and gave you a predetermined character where you ran through a basically pre-scripted story line.  I HATE games about a pre-scripted STORYLINE.  If I want to experience a good pre-determined story I'll watch a movie.  They have far better stories than what you get in video games anyway.  I want to make my own story in a game through my actions and Origins gave me so much hope for the future of the franchise and 2 took that all away.  I'm cautiously optimistic that 3 will fix all they broke in 2 though.

If it's really that short, I might wait a few weeks before buying. I actually ended up liking the new Wolf3d.exe game more than expected and that is taking me a bit more time to play through because I have the difficulty set to maximum and I'm not amazing at it.

 

But as far as a recent disappointment, I would say Sim City.

I really wanted Sim City... Didn't have the money to get it when it was released and the Day 1 problems stopped me from getting it alltogether. Kinda forgot about it until you said something.

Aliens:Colonial Marines or Duke Nukem.. tossup on which disappointed me more. Still on the fence about Sim City.. heard a lot of not-so-good things.. I want to buy it but..

As far as Watch Dog's playtime goes, is that doing everything or just making a beeline for the finishing line? There's a few open-world games that can be wrapped up stupidly fast if you want, Skyrim, Fallout 3, etc.. basically getting what you put into it.

Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows for PS2

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gauntlet:_Seven_Sorrows

 

The previous Gauntlet games (arcade, Dreamcast, PS2, etc) were amazing. Hours of fun just grinding away with friends.

 

Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows promised to be MORE. Better graphics, more areas, more depth. Midway and John Romero were working on it.

 

The game was gutted. People working on it left or were fired. TONS of content was dropped. Most of the game was scrapped. They then shipped it "as is". Missing content and all. You'd end up with tons of money and nothing to buy in the game, since most of the stuff was removed. It was the shortest Gauntlet game with the least amount of content. You could complete it in a single sitting.

 

That was one of the biggest disappointments I've had with gaming. I was looking forward to it to much.

That was just pushing the main story. I ignored every possible 'side-mission' thinking they would take away from the story. I have ADD so what happens often with me is if I let that little stuff get me distracted, I end up never finishing the game.... like I have done with probably 50 GREAT games over the past few years. I said 'Screw this'. I'm DOING IT.

Ahh ok then, not bashing the playstyle but I'm the opposite, a completionist, if it's doable I do it.. getting there's half the fun and all that, probably easily get that 40 hours out of it.

Mass Effect 3's ending.

Yea I hear that.. great game up until the last few minutes. Not ashamed to admit I added the happy ending mod just to get the bad taste out of my mouth.

ACIII wasn't a bad game by any means it's just that Connor was such a BORING character. at least for me AC4 completely made up for the bad characters of 3

The lackluter campaign of GTA V. I was left feeling the game was incomplete compared to prior releases by Rockstar.

GTA V has a story line? :p half the fun of the new gta is the online mode where you can goof around with your friends (i've probably seen several hours of gta5 gameplay (as i don't own a 360 or ps3) but have not seen 1 sec of actual story line lol)

I never really considered GTA for multiplayer, I guess more emphasis was put on it compared to the campaign.

I don't really understand people who buy sandbox/open-world games and then complain about the story.  These games aren't about a pre-defined story.  They are supposed to create a world for you to play around in and have a good time and not hold your hand as you walk through a series of predetermined events.  I love the Elder Scrolls series, I've got every one of them and spent MANY hours in them yet the only one I've ever finished the story on is Skyrim.  Similarly I own all the GTAs and I've never completely finished one of them.  I'd not do the story at all in them if it wasn't for the fact you have to get to certain points to unlock portions of the map.  I think John D. Carmack said it best:

 

"Story in a game is like a story in a porn movie. It's expected to be there, but it's not that important."

 

If you want a good story then watch a movie, that's what they're there for.  Games are supposed to be interactive.  When I tell you what happened in my playthrough it shouldn't be the same as when you tell me.  We made different choices and we should get different results otherwise the choice is an illusion and you're just walking through a movie that forces you to kill a boss or push a button to unlock then next part of the movie.  Obviously due to technical limitations there's only so many choices a game can present but these should be going up as tech improves yet today's games are often less dynamic then those in the past.

I played Watch Dogs last night for about 12 hours and I only got to the level where you visit your Nieces grave with your Sister

 

I spent most of my time stopping crimes and hacking people's bank accounts.

Bioshock Infinity supposed to be a game of choices and it was the most linear game id played in ages, the story was weak and was nothing like BioShock which i loved

If that's the message you got from infinite, I think you wholly missed the point. The game was about fate, and the potentially large ramifications small decisions can have on reality (constants and variables). The game was never marketed as one where player choices make a difference to the overall outcome.

      Rare details the Sea of Thieves Seasons battle pass system
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Rare announced last month that Sea of Thieves will be going through another major overhaul soon after the new year, and that time has almost arrived. The game is moving to a seasonal content delivery system and gaining a battle pass like many other live-service titles. Today, Rare provided the first complete look at the new systems coming to the pirate adventure game later this week.

      Each season will last around three months, containing an injection of new features at the start as well as events, quality of life changes, and other updates while it is active. Players will have 100 levels of Renown to climb through while a season is active, with each one offering Gold, Doubloons, and various cosmetic rewards for pirates and ships.

      Simply playing the game is enough to climb levels, as almost every action - pirate or not - provides Renown. There are also special challenges named Trials that players can complete for a boost of Renown. These can include deeds such as setting skeletons on fire or simply catching a certain fish in a certain area. Pirate Legends have a few special items just for them to unlock too.

      "This move to a Seasonal structure is designed to enrich the game and provide players with the freedom to enjoy Sea of Thieves their way, while making sure that a feeling of progression is present throughout a whole gameplay session," said Rare. "We know how frustrated some of you have felt when something’s gone awry and you’ve lost loot, so Seasonal play is there to let you make progress and leave satisfied every time you set sail."

      Interestingly, everything mentioned above is free to achieve for all players without needing a premium pass. There is an optional paid option available named the Plunder Pass - which costs $10 in Ancient Coins - but only 11 additional premium items are given out during the first season. These items will remain exclusive to the Plunder Pass until a season is over and then arrive at the Pirate Emporium later.

      Sea of Thieves Season One is slated to kick off on January 28 across PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S for players that own the game or play it via Xbox Game Pass.

      Konami denies shutting down its gaming division
      by Usama Jawad

      Konami used to be a very well-known name in the gaming industry, highlighted by its work with the Silent Hill and Metal Gear Solid franchises. However, with no major releases from these popular franchises making their way to gamers in recent years, the company has not been in the spotlight for quite some time. The firm's PES football games are still being released in their usual annual release cadence, but have a relatively smaller playerbase compared to EA's FIFA.

      Recently, rumors emerged that Konami has shut down its gaming division, but the firm has now swiftly denied these allegations.

      Reports of the closure of Konami's gaming division emerged based on an official news release from January 15, in which the company highlighted some internal restructuring and personnel changes. What triggered the rumor was a statement at the bottom, which stated that Konami is dissolving three of its "Product Divisions", which were considered to be the company's game development divisions.

      Likely fueled by Konami's quiet presence in the gaming industry, many considered this to be a submission of defeat from the firm, and an announcement that it is phasing out of game development. However, in a statement to IGN, the company has denied these rumors, saying that:

      The brief but clear statement indicates that this is a mere restructuring and Konami is not shutting down its game studios. However, it remains to be seen what major titles the company has in store for gamers, especially with the advent of a new console generation.

      Microsoft Weekly: Price fluctuations, Win32 reloaded, and hardware availability
      by Florin Bodnarescu



      This last week has brought a bit of indecisiveness from Microsoft in regards to Xbox Live Gold pricing, a commitment to Win32, and an expansion in hardware availability. You can find info about that, as well as much more below, in your Microsoft digest for the week of January 17 – 23.

      Price fluctuations


      On Friday, Microsoft caused a bit of a reaction from its player base as it decided to unceremoniously – and rather randomly – bump up the price for Xbox Live Gold. The monthly membership was increased by $1 to $10.99, the three-month price by $5 to $29.99, and the six-month membership was bumped up to $59.99. The latter price is the same the service used to cost for an entire year, which means that in effect, Microsoft doubled the price for Gold at the yearly level.

      Not surprisingly, the reaction was swift and angry, at which point the company thankfully backpedaled on this decision, further stating that pricing will remain that same, and that free-to-play multiplayer games will not require a subscription.

      It is however very possible that the company was trying to make Xbox Game Pass Ultimate a no-brainer deal at $180 per year, versus the (previously new) $120 per year for Xbox Live Gold. In case you had any doubts that Microsoft really wants folks to adopt Game Pass, you get 12 months of Game Pass Ultimate and a Razer Kishi Controller when buying a Galaxy S21 from the UK’s EE wireless carrier.

      And speaking of such things, the Games with Gold for February have been revealed, and they include Gears 5, Resident Evil, Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition, Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb, as well as Lost Planet 2.

      For folks that do however prefer Game Pass, Remedy’s Control is now available to play as part of the subscription, along with a slew of other titles like The Medium, Desperados III, and many more. For the full lineup of titles, as well as games leaving the subscription, be sure to check out this link.

      Finally, in more app news than anything else, the YouTube app on Xbox now has HDR support for videos.

      Win32 reloaded


      As you’d imagine, Microsoft was busy handing out Insider preview builds this week as well, with build 21296 making its way to the Dev channel. Don’t get too excited though, as it includes two minor changes to the Clipboard and Storage Spaces, as well as a laundry list of fixes, but even more known issues. The vast majority of known issues are related to the newly introduced news and interests feature from the taskbar.

      There’s also build 20285 for folks previewing Server builds, a build which currently has no changelog attached to it.

      In other Insider news, build 19042.782 made its way to testers in the Beta and Release Preview channels, bringing about a substantial number of fixes, despite it being a mere cumulative update. On a somewhat related note, there are reports that Microsoft may start testing Windows 10 21H1 beginning with build 19043. To the surprise of few, this will most likely be an enablement package, just like 1909 and 20H2.

      And speaking of those, Microsoft did also release some out of band updates for at least one of those versions, namely 1909. The Knowledge Base number for this update is KB4598298, and bumps the build number up to 18363.1350. There are a lot of fixes included, but the bug related to system and user certificates is still present. For its part, 1809 got KB4598296, which brings the build number up to 17763.1728 with the singular known issue listed as being the “0x800f0982 – PSFX_E_MATCHING_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND” message related to Asian language packs.

      Finally, we’ll end with the story that’s hinted at in the title of this section, namely the Redmond firm’s commitment to Win32. It would appear that indeed, reports of its demise were greatly exaggerated, despite Microsoft’s best efforts to supplant it via Windows 8’s Metro UI and companion WinRT toolset, or Windows 10’s UWP approach. There’s also Project Reunion which aims to unify all of the disparate libraries and APIs, as well as Windows 10X which is still yet to prove itself – as it hasn’t even come out.

      To aid with the transitionary period though, there’s now a toolset called win32metadata, which allows devs to more easily wrap Win32 APIs in order to take advantage of them for apps not written in C or C++. As to how successful this will be, remains to be seen

      Hardware availability


      Folks following the company closely may know that it recently released its Surface Pro 7+ hardware refresh, but it’s worth noting that the “previous” generation is still up for grabs. Specifically, there’s now a Surface Pro 7 + Type Cover (with Fingerprint ID) which would normally cost $2,059.98 being sold for $1,699.98. If you’re in the market for such a device, this bundle will save you about $360.

      Moving on to the more traditional laptop form factor, the Laptop Go is now available in India, while the Laptop 3 may soon receive another variant, as it’s been spotted passing through Bluetooth certification.

      In terms of the education market, Microsoft has also released five new inexpensive options from partners, all of which support 4G LTE and range in price from $185 to $329. There’s also the Classroom Pen 2, which is now being sold for $19.99.

      Dev channel
      Microsoft, Cruise, and GM have teamed up to commercialize self-driving vehicles. Microsoft Lists is now available for iOS. An event centered on Azure SQL and Data Factory will kick off on February 3. The Redmond giant will hold a free Azure Quantum Dev Workshop on February 2. You can now receive notifications from Yammer communities in Teams. Microsoft To Do’s web app now supports AI-based task suggestions. Windows Terminal is set to gain a settings UI in its next version. Teams will be integrated into SAP solutions. Microsoft has stopped PAC donations. Logging off
      We’re at the edge of this weekly column, so how else would we end, other than talking about Microsoft’s eponymous browser.



      Kicking things off with some Insider news, folks in possession of a HoloLens 2 can now test out the brand-new version of Edge inside the AR environment, joining testers who’ve had access to it on other platforms for quite a while.

      For example, Edge Dev’s build 89.0.767.0 is now out, adding minor autofill improvements, with the stable channel getting Edge 88 complete with history sync, sidebar search, and more. Also part of this release is Password Monitor, a built-in tool that lets you know whether your passwords have been compromised.

      And lastly, if you find the default look of the browser a tad boring, there’s always the option to change things up a bit via custom themes. Yes, the browser has been able to add Chrome themes for a while, but now custom ones, based on Microsoft properties like Ori and the Will of Wisps have been added to Edge’s add-on store.

      Missed any of the previous columns? Be sure to have a look right here.

      Weekend PC Game Deals: EA Play for cheap, a bundle of Humble survivors, and more
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Weekend PC Game Deals is where the hottest gaming deals from all over the internet are gathered into one place, every week, for your consumption. So kick back, relax, and hold on to your wallets.

      Humble ended its gaming bundle hiatus this week, bringing in a collection filled with survival-related titles. Considering the store's winter sales are still going on, it's an uncommon sight to have a gaming bundle show up while a major promotion is active.

      The new Built to Survive bundle offers only a single game in its $1 tier, with a copy of Deadly Days being included. The 'pay more than the average tier', which is currently going for around $8.60, adds four more games to the pile, them being Generation Zero, Mad Max, Memories of Mars, and Life is Feudal: Your Own.

      The reason for the average price being so high is the final tier, which adds on copies of World War Z - GOTY Edition and Genesis Alpha One Deluxe Edition for $10.



      The giveaways of Epic returned right on schedule this week with Galactic Civilizations III taking the freebie slot over from Battlefront II.

      The civilization builder offers a 4X turn-based experience set in space where you can go against up to 100 opponents. Usual strategy mechanics of the genre apply here, though with a futuristic-space flair, with you being tasked with exploring space, expanding your empire, exploiting resources, and exterminating any threatening factions.

      This freebie will end its promotion on January 28, which is when the metroidvania Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition will take its place.

      Free Events
      The free events space is bustling again this weekend after a rather long slow period, offering you more than a few experiences to try out. Beginning with sole Uplay game, Ubisoft is currently running a free event for Ghost Recon Breakpoint, opening the cooperative tactical shooter to everyone until January 25

      Meanwhile on Steam, there is another event promoting demos, this time highlighting a massive number of upcoming indie adventure games. Standard free events are numerous too, with Amplitude Studios' 4X games Endless Legend and Endless Space 2, plus its rogue-like Dungeon of the Endless having free weekends right now.

      Moreover, the cooperative train track building party game Unrailed as well as Saber Interactive's arcade fighting game WWE 2K Battlegrounds are having Steam free weekend promotions right now.

      Big Deals
      Before we get to our usual big deals, you should know that EA is currently running a discount promotion for its EA Play (formerly Origin Access) subscription program. First-time subscribers can enter the membership for $0.99 for their first month until March, and we suggest getting the Origin version as it offers far more games than the EA Play offering on Steam.
