Recently been playing some Insurgency Sandstorm, love it. Nice to see they've kept to what they originally made as well as opposed to going more mainstream.

(i don't really feel the same way, but the Insurgency i think of was waaaaay back a long time ago when it was still a Sourcemod rather than a production Source game, and where suffice to say that everyone always fought over the Weapon Classes that had the most precision because penalties for not playing like actual Soldiers were much, much, much greater than it is nowadays >.>)

 

 

but anyways, if it's not for you there's tens of thousands of other games out there.
even though i found Equipment grinding in Division pretty enjoyable compared to most big budget titles. no BS, able to just play since there was so much variety in content.

I'm waiting for the open demo, but I was shocked to learn there is no text chat, even in the PC version. Some claim it's in order to comply with a law, but that same law requires voice chat have STT, which they don't seem to have, so it would make no sense to use that law as an excuse not to have text chat when you're clearly not complying with the law anyway in your voice chat system.

For PC gamers, no text chat will be a deal breaker. Many people either don't want to use or can't use voice chat and will essentially have no way to communicate at all. I expect many who buy the game but haven't been keeping up on any details of it will be blown away by having no text chat in an online PC game that has a lot of group content. It's just the most insanely poor development choice I've ever seen made in gaming history if it's going live without such a basic feature. I expect it will result in a lot of refund demands from PC gamers.

For text chat you need moderation (either automatic by bots* or manual by moderators**). Both cost money. cost money. EA. *cost money*. Do I have to draw a picture?

* Automoderation algorithms cost money. You can license them from companies like Amazon.

** People usually don't work for free.

Voice chat does not need moderation, as no court anywhere in the (relevant) world has ever held Voice service providers responsible for actions of their users. They only require them to provide "lawful interception" access, which is trivial and does not cost a lot of money.

Graphics, Maybe, not so much more though, and TOO much graphics makes it really annoying to be in a tunnel or halways with blasts of energy everywhere and you can't see what is going on, also, makes for lots of loss of frames.

Coloring? Warframe has hundreds of colors, compared to the few I saw in Anthem (so far)

Graphics? You are comparing a 8 year old game made by a small "indie" comany with a current (well, actually next gen as it is not released yet) engine from a AAA company.

And still: Warframe's graphics is very good. Best particle system i've seen so far. And it's not that DE is lazy, they are reworking the graphics and all the samples they showed off during devstream of the new Cloud tilesets look very modern and are definatly on par with anything else.

 

Coloring? Warframe has many duplicates in the palettes and you need to unlock the colours (pay-to-fashion) or play it every day for a year to get the free event palettes.

Warframe completely lacks any form of texture and material customization (which Anthem had TONS of).

 

That's about it. This really sums up the two points where you can actually compare these two otherwise completely different games.

Yea, but something like the Razoback or something interesting with bosses you know what I mean, Bosses with puzzles, not GIANT GLOWING "hit me here" things lol

You like the Ambulas "boss" fight then? I do, for this exact reason.

I do want big fat bullet-sponge bosses with a giant glowing "hit me here" sign, but I dont want multiple variations of this concept (it gets boring really really fast!).

Actually it's because of the CVAA (Communications and Video Accesibility Act). A US law that demands that online communication is accessible for people with disabilities, meaning that a text chat must have text-to-speech and speech-to-text, among other things. Video games had been given a temporary waiver from the law, since communication is not really the core purpose of playing a video game, but that waiver just ran out on 1st of January. So all video games released in 2019 and on has to comply to the CVAA if they want to be legal in the US. Meaning that for many developers it will be easier to just skip text chat completely, especially for a game that was already many years in development.

Apex Legends did comply to the CVAA for it's chat, so it's obviously possible to do it, so much of it also comes down to how bad the developers really want it in their game. But some money and research has to be invested now.

As a side note, if an old game receives a major update, like a DLC, they are also now required to include compliance with the CVAA in said update. Which could end up affecting Warframes chat, depending on how "major update" is going to be interpreted.

It looks promising, but the prospect of giving any more of my money to EA leaves a really vile taste in my mouth.

EA

Yes true. I'm not a fan of EA either. But I love the devs at Bioware. So I'm really routing for Bioware and this game.

not that there weren't a significant number of games that already exclude it or have something so terrible that nobody wants to even use it(seriously how is it so complicated to make a box that you write words into, wtf). #consoleitis

 

not that 90%+ of Players in games don't communciate on anything in the first place, regardless of Platform, and demand that games let them play "Solo with some Nametags floating around" because they're too inept to handle communicating with their Allies

Yeah, that's pretty nice. Can't see something like that working for Warframe however, as from a story perspective it could be pretty jarring. Very nice work by them nonetheless. Regardless of how Anthem turns out, that's work to be proud of.

At 2:56 I was imagining Nyx in the middle of that whirl pool. And the bald woman in the cave with the paint on top of her head is the Tenno saying "the void swims through your mind, it knows you, it knows us all" tenor.gif
