Never said I agree with the $50 price tag. :/
Just like what Valve does? The very company that has done it over and over, and so on.
Since I already named some ID Tech 3 games, I'll name some Unreal ones.
Clive Barker Undying. You can easily do it as a mod. Obviously when you compare it to most of the mods released.
Star Trek: The Next Generation: Klingon Honor Guard, Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler's Green, Postal² Nuff said.
Unreal Tournament 2k4. Repackaged 2k3.
Red Steel 2. A little different from Red Steel.
Star Wars: Republic Commando. A unique hud obviously makes it good enough to be its own game.
Stop saying that the Game is just a reskinned and resold L4D.
Elite Force. Just a reskinned "ID Tech 3" engine. Oh but it has different weapons. Well you stated in another post that it isn't that hard to program in a new weapon.
Call of Duty. Redone models, different textures, different menu, replaced weapons and a simple addition of an Objective List.
Your argument is only flawed because you seem to ignore how different L4D2 is from L4D. There is so much changed underneath that it can be measured just about the same as most games based on another engine.
Lets go on.
Return to castle Wolfentstein. Oh my, its not in the future. Its during WW2. Must be very different game.
Or maybe all the games that were released as Gold editions with new features that can't be found in a patch. Oh wait, that doesn't matter.
Well, judging by these complaints, Modders (even those that haven't modded a thing in there life) are superior to Developers.
Don't know about you, but you did say "The graphic quality is sufficient to a SDK patch. "
There we go again, you think differences between engines are only Graphical. My comparisons are only as flawed as yours. This is my very point.
If that was the case then almost all games share majority of its features with the original game, with very few new features.
"Okay this is my opinion but i want l4d2. I mean sure making it full priced might be kinda lame, but i will be more than happy to buy it. I dont care if they might not release updates to l4d. I will be perfectly content with the additions in the sequal." -Bloocheese565
"That's not even an opinion, that's stating exactly what your going to do with no backup or reason for any of it." -AlCool
So you say its an an opinion. Yet what he says is his opinion. Don't get me wrong, your not an idiot, but your post itself made no sense what so ever.
I don't know. Maybe the countless games that used the Quake 3 engine. Most of them were just games reskinned with new maps. Maybe they should just be mods released for free.
So in your world, a game can only reckon a sequel if its a totally different engine? Your a ******* idiot.
Your kidding me? There is more going on underneath the engine than just ******* graphics. Geez, I think this whole ordeal is just about everyone not seeing a huge graphical improvement with the game.
Wait, what? Source is a heavily modified Quake engine. The same modification in which L4D2 is doing to L4D. The difference? A heavy AI improvement. In your world, an improvement has to be graphically, else its not an update.
UT3 is pretty much just a very pretty UT2k4. Thats all. It actually could be a patch, but do they want to do it? No.
Just like any game. Do you really need it? No, but if you want it, then thats okay. Except in your world, everyone else's opinion is ****.
Just like any game. Except this is L4D. Its just that special to deserve a boycott.
Does change the fact that Valve will always be valve. There work will always show through as quality. Hence the reason why you are spoiled, for the fact that if your not fully satisfied beyond capabilities, everyone will be ****.
Oh no, maybe Battlefield 2 or Battlefield 2040 or whatever its called is just Battlefield 1942 reskinned and resold. Its still a very different game.
Or maybe Call of Duty. its just reskinned and resold. Based on what you say, even though L4D2 isn't a reskinned and resold game, all games is just that too.
Not to mention Valve already stated that they will still support L4D even long after the L4D2 release.
Doesn't change the fact that the addition of more weapons will greatly unbalance the original campaigns, hense the reason for a sequel. Though I do agree $50 is absolutely too much.
Like the Unreal Engine. Its the same technology and still didn't age well. GoW and Mass Effect aside.
That aside, I still feel that besides Crysis, the Source engine produces the more realistic environments in gaming. Everything else abuses Shaders like its candy.
Uh, no they didn't.
Of course Episode 2 didn't cost $50. I bet L4D2 will probably cost $30-$20.
Oh like that hasn't happened before. Oh wait, it has, hundreds of times before.
How many times have Amazon jumped the gun and posted incorrect content? Plenty of times. Think about it, the information hasn't come from the horses mouth.
Its amazon that state $50, not valve. Why is everyone BELIEVING IT?
Are you serious? Contributing to an ignorant boycott? I am contributing. I'm proving a counter argument. Else the whole discussion is biased...which no doubt is going on now. Good job gamer.
1 Year later. Just like Episode 2 of HL2 being one year of Episode 1.....not to mention, why the hell are you trusting Amazon? Steam never announced the price yet, not to mention a defined release date.
Exactly! Practically the whole game was revamped. Let the idiots prevail and the knowledgeable die.
This is the biggest let down ever, and I'm not talking about the game. Are you ******* serious people? How the community be so stupid. This is one of those times when everyone jumps on the bandwagon just becaused gamers think they know more than developers.
We are talking about Valve here, not EA. You guys are a huge disgrace. Just shut up.
Not to mention, that amazon post is hard to believe. Honestly L4D2 is no different than Half-life 2 episodes. Its a completely new game with similiar gameplay. Its has an enhanced engine which is reprogrammed enough that updating the original game could potentially break the campaigns.
This is PATHETIC.
I really love the technical drawings you guys have for both Architecture and Vehicles. Great work.
Everything is shaping up very well!
