Half-Life: Blue Shift

Half-Life: Blue Shift

Well, at some point this game is total scam, or at least this DLC.
When you open up console while you are ingame, and type " thirdperson " you will see Mr.Freeman in his orange suit, not a blue-shift security guard, while you see a blue short when being in first person...... So this DLC is kind of BS if you are not even a blue-shift guard.

Massive mistake guys !

It's because Blue Shift was originally made for the Dreamcast where there was no console to activate third-person view. I think some small changes were made for the PC port but the player model was apparently over-looked.
I agree that it's kind of annoying though.

Well...it's just weird that the most important thing in the game ( you being a guard ) is overlooked. I mean..come on... Shame on them.

Well..of course! I mean you are meant to play as a Blue Shift security guard, but you are clearly visibly Mr.Freeman. So yeah, I would call it scam if devs are not even able to make your character look like a blue shifter.

I do not own Half-Life 2, so I can't type thirdperson in HL2. Sorry !

Calling me stupid because I simply like stuff don't good? Hey mate, the devs messed up here, not me. I am just a customer who noticed that there is a pretty silly issue.

But go ahead calling people stupid, maybe you learn to not behave like this when you've finished your 8th grade.

Gearbox actually never thought about that, because of that fact that you aren't even supposed to go in third person in the first place. Like, ♥♥♥♥ing hell, it's called an FPS for a reason. And the fact that you are calling this a scam just makes this hilarious.
Also, funny you pointed that out, I already finished 8th grade, right now I'm doing my final tests for 9th grade. But hey, how should you know that, right?

So what you are saying is, because you are not supposed to use a certain command which IS available ( to be used for screenshots for example ), you as a dev would NOT make the actual character the player is playing, look like the character you are meant to be in the game you've paid for ? No offense, but with this attitude you wont keep any job for too long mate.

They are developers, they are developing products we use and pay for, so it should not be an issue to have an eye on such simple things. Blue Shift = Same story, different character, the funfact is, the character is optical the same )))) This is just a silly mistake the devs made and never fixed, this is what I am talking about. So to me it is a form of scam, even if it is a not wanted scam. You pay for something you already got, Mr.Freeman.

PS: Aww final tests for 9th grade. Good luck with that! Maybe you change your attitude when you are out of school, earn money, pay taxes and have to feed a wife and children, hopefully then you understand that some people actual expect something for the money they spent on a product, including games. But when you are out of mommy and daddys basement, you will most likely understand what I am talking about.

So far...everything that has to be said is said, and I am usually not discussing with people who join a discussing by insulting me, these type of people are usually humans with a minor IQ and bad parents.

Yes it does. Because this was the whole point. The Storyline and the Character you play.

So you're saying the devs ♥♥♥♥ed up because you saw something weird in a camera angle you weren't even supposed to see?

Well, yeah!

They know that we can get to this camera ancle, and they know that this DLC is about a blue shift guard, so it's kind of cheesy that they did not even test the game so far to notice this little and big issue at the same time.

I mean I paid money for the DLC, and as long as I pay money for products, I can complain about issues like this. For you it might not be a big deal, but for me it is, because I care about quality. And such an OBVIOUS failure, come on..it's just ♥♥♥♥ed up. This just proves how less they actually test their games. It might just be an optical failure, but when I play games I use my eyes, not my feet or my bottom. Of course I want that also optical everything is correct and as it has to be, what annoys me even more is that they did not fix it afterwards and still don't care about it, same thing they did when it comes to scientists following you, it's terrible to make them follow you properly, without hanging in some corner or blocking their own way.

it's an old game, but it still matters. It's fine if you want to go through life not caring about quality, you are probably one of these people who would work in a restaurant and not heat up food properly, because they just give a ♥♥♥♥ about it, as long as it tastes good.

But I should not expect too much from a guy who posts his specs on his steam-profile-description.


I am sorry for your mind-set, your life must have more downs than ups. Poor clown.

At least you actually have a player model, most SP-only games give you a set of disembodied arms. But yeah, worst game ever, Valve is worst company in America, yeah, whatever.

I didn't say that you sissy-boy. I just said that they made a failure and it's not the first one. Always interesting to see how American's can't deal with criticism at all.
