Funcom explains The Park in a new video

You seem trustworthy.

Players of The Secret World already know the history of the eponymous amusement park in The Park, but there’s a world of difference between going in there with the powers of a bee or just waltzing in as an unsuspecting young mother. A new video from Funcom shows off some of what players can expect from the game as well as discusses its overall design goals.

If you’re hoping for The Park to be an epic RPG set in the midst of The Secret World‘s setting, you’ll be disappointed, as the game will play out over a couple of hours and will very much be focused on psychological horror rather than fighting monsters. If that piques your interest, check out the full video for a preview of the game and what horrors await in the dark corners of the eponymous park.

Greaterdivinity Quincha that same thing goes for the question as to why there are not as many woman in engineering and construction. Woman simply do not apply for jobs and educations in that sector as much as men do.
But what happens then to support some made up argument is that this is being misconstrued by feminists claiming they are being bullied out of the education and that ,that is the reason.

Greaterdivinity Quincha pffff…. what is not critisized for being sexist and mysogynistic these days?

how many woman in GoT have we not seen that murder and butcher and are stronger men?

That is this feminism of these days. You shut your eyes to everything unless it fits your world view.

Aww I really wished it to be more like DreadOut, Amnesia: The Dark Descent or at the very least Daylight. For now it kinda looks like a walking simulator. I know there are some really good ones, but I’m sorry, I just don’t enjoy themepark/ horror haunt rides where I’m just a spectator without even a slightest illusion of agency. If there is not enough game in my game, I don’t feel engaged, and thus I don’t feel like playing, no matter how good the atmosphere is.
Also, once I had this overwhelming feeling of déjà vu I experienced while playing Fallout 3 after putting in over 300 hours into TES: Oblivion. For those who don’t know, it’s made in the same engine, by the same studio and reuses many of the same mechanics/ gameplay solutions. Basically I felt like playing reskinned Oblivion, and was constantly thinking about all the stuff I did while playing Oblivion. It was hard to concentrate & to just play what I had in front of me. I’m afraid the same effect might occur here, since I’ve spent over 1200 hours in TSW, many of those in the amusement park itself. If it turns out not to be a walking simulator, and I end up playing it, I hope my thought won’t just be overwhelmed by memories of my time in TSW.

Quincha  I dont have a problem?  Conversely though, apparently you’re having reading comprehension issues. That’s not a statement saying that you are accusing GD of being negative, I’m not sure why you insist on reading it that way.  Personal bias toward what you want me to be thinking, I guess.

Quincha You cited a single data point. It’s cool (and I’ve been meaning to watch Avatar and Korra for a while), but a single data point is meaningless.

Quincha Do you have data to support your claim? That’s not how a rational business acts, they do not ignore lucrative markets. Companies don’t benefit at all from that.
And I wouldn’t take all of my queues about modern real world marketing from Mad Men. It’s a fantastic show and it’s super interesting, but the current marketing world does not work that way. As someone who works with marketing teams on a daily/weekly basis, I feel pretty confident saying that.
Yes, smart marketing teams can find new avenues and markets, but it can be a big risk and companies don’t like risks.

Quincha Why is that? I don’t know. These companies very regularly do market research on that type of thing (I have a friend involved in that very profession, doing extensive market/focus group testing for a number of major companies on a variety of products), so if they believed the demand was there and that they could make money, you be your ass they’ll be meeting the demand and making that money.
Not sure what Avatar 2 cartoon (from the sci-fi movie? Or are you talking about Legend of Korra?) or Steve Universe is, so can’t comment on those.

Quincha Why does marketing have now that much of a problem to sell men beauty products?
There are beauty products for men, but nowhere near as many as for women. Part of that is absolutely societal norms/forces/pressures. But the bigger part? Men just don’t buy them. If there was a demand/market for it, the market would respond and fill this demand.  It’s done so time and time again. Companies don’t like missing out on money they could be earning.
If you think you can sell makeup/beauty products marketed at men, more power to you! Go for it! Hopefully you’ll find that market and be the first to tap into it and make millions/billions.

Quincha I read a few articles nebulously claiming “mass demand”, but in terms of actual data to make any meaningful decision from, nope.
