Please don't tell me that, heaven forbid, the suits are starting to realize they need to come up with new business models that are in line with the way people want to play their games and not whine about piracy "killing the industry".

I'll hold back opinion until Ive played it. Having said that, Croteam couldve spent a few more minutes making the gameplay trailer look more inviting.

If this is such a big deal with Valve, why don't any of the other digital distributers seem to have the same problem with EA?

Logic has a very simple answer to that. No other digital distributor is financially secure enough to deal with the consequences of losing major EA franchises.

If Valve is really planning on holding their ground on this matter, then they're either hoping that EA will see clear results in terms of loss of sales from not having the game on Steam, or they're betting that they'll make more money from the companies that do cooperate than they'll lose from EA walking away.

It's a matter of creating a precedent. If EA sells their DLC without giving Steam a cut and there are no reprecussions, then other companies will follow suit and Steam could stand to lose a lot more revenue than just what they make off of EA products.

Think for a moment of Activision. CoD map packs are routinely at the top of the Steam sales charts for weeks. If those went to in-game sales that give Steam no cut... then how much of a loss is that alone, not even thinking about the masses of other DLC ridden games out there?

Great observation.

I noticed Martha Quinn looks better than any 52 yr old woman Ive ever seen.

On the flip-side, poor Nina Blackwood sounds like she's been gargling with Jack Daniels and unfiltered Lucky Strikes for a few too many years.....

I miss the days when Croteam (yes, I know this article references MP game maker Devolver) updated frequently during development. For a dev that worked out of a country that was reduced to rubble with many killed, they had a twisted sense of humor and their updates were always highly entertaining. Unfortunately I've heard almost nothing from them since SS3 began production.

The game is gold yet its not coming out for at least another month.

I'll never understand marketing, PR etc. Holding it back for some arbitrary date seems moronic.

Then again, I'm just a house painter, wtf do I know.

PCF are very talented, let them do their thing. Keep Cliffy and Mark Rein OUT of the design pipeline. What hurt this game was the obvious crap that Epic had a hand in putting into Bulletstorm ie; GoW style characters, big meat-heads with juvenile toilet humor thats supposed to be "outrageous" along with the ultra-linear gameplay.

Painkiller is arguably the finest pure shooter ever made. Give them credit for knowing how to make a game. Take your demographic studies and shove them up your ass.

I can't think of how they could have made a demo for the previous ES games and had it be representative of what you experienced in the game proper. I was fine with all the ones before and no reason why this won't be a great experience as well.

Global Agenda was and still is a huge joke and failure. Thus my expectations are low.

agreed, it was pretty dull. But the gameplay videos for Ascend look like it could be entertaining.

it might very well turn out to be shit but I'll keep and open mind.

If its fun, I'm playing the fucking thing, especially for free.

Its a game folks, it ain't wall street.

Go fuck your uncles Hi Rez. I honestly wish I knew the idiots in charge of making this decision, I (and I assume many others) want to punch these fuckers in the snout.

No dedicated servers? No mods, no editing.. and.. they are placing some emphasis on melee. Melee? You fucks... this isn't Global Agenda meets Tribes.. god dammit... GOD FUCKING DAMMIT!

PAGING SCOTT YOUNGBLOOD... look what this nitwits are doing to your baby!!!!

I have zero hope for this game.. none.

CH, obviously it won't be the original Tribes (or the other two either). Having said that, if you enjoy that style of play and you don't have to shell out a dime, whats the problem? It's either this or no Tribes or Tribes-like gameplay at all.

No, it's not what any of us would ask for in a Tribes game but half a loaf is better than no loaf (bad cliche's, I know)

you can still play the original game. Give it a shot.

And actually has gameplay depth. Something that Halo has little of

Disagreed on both sides.
Planetside, at least at launch, was just a slow, shallow shooter. The actual combat was terrible.

Not sure what game you were playing Beamer but NO FPS then (at launch) or since has had the depth of PS.

Good to hear. These seemed like they worked pretty hard to get this game off the ground and its not half bad.

Hopefully they'll do the Tribes IP justice despite the hardcore tantrum babies who are unable to keep an open mind.
