Is the Steam release at midnight? It says 16 hours from now. That would make it tomorrow afternoon sometime...

I pray it doesn't but as long as I get the whole enchilada for my monthly subscription fee I'm ok with what ever else they feel they need to do to milk Joe Public.

HellSlayer, aren't you one of the people who was defending Hellgate London before release? Not that I'm seeing a trend or anything...

I agree with you both... and wish I would have seen this...

http://store.steampowered.com/app/40300/

... before ordering from GoGamer. This is the best deal if you can't pick it up locally for $40. Bad news is the confusion at the local stores. LameStop has told me so many different things I doubt they'll have it come release day... which according to them is Saturday the 3rd. Think I'll cancel my order and get it from Steam. If possible...

Risen shipped today from GoGamer.Com and will be available at other brick & mortar stores and as a download with in the next day or two. You may want to get it instead. The majority of the reviews are very positive and compare it to Gothic 2 and the original.
I just ordered it with over night shipping and it won't be much more expensive than if I download it. Weirdest part is the three different release dates and LameStop having little to no info concerning the PC release. Thinking about taking a vacation day Friday but that depends on it's arrival tomorrow.

I noticed the list is different on the site also. I doubt Aion is selling that well. I also noticed D2D has Risen for $50 when it's only $40 at EB Games & GoGamer. And all three sites have a different release date. Seems this business of managing information is harder than I thought...

Really looking forward to this one and can't wait to find out how it has turned out. For $39 I feel you can't go wrong buying this. Plus it supports a great studio. Even with the slight worry that combat will be too similar to G3 I am still willing to risk it... since I had far more fun in G3 than ES4. And I know it may be a bit rough around the edges for some... but then I had less problems (by far) playing the Gothic games than the last three Bethesda games. I won't try to play F3 again until I build another system it's just not worth the frustration of the constant crashes to desktop in some areas.
Is this a worldwide release or has it already been released in Germany?

LoL, yeah I think they saw how well the adult gamers responded to the Witcher and decided to follow their lead. The worst part is almost every video has done nothing to excite me about the game. A few of the game-play videos did though. I just hope it's as good as the hype. Please, don't screw this one up...

/sarcasm in full gear...

Crackhead talking to a Prostitute, "Yo beeeaach, why should I pay fifee dollas up frunt an' den find out yo snatch is all loose? You should let me pop a cap in yo ass firs. Den if yo dat good I be willing to pay fo it da nex time."

Da Prostitute, "Oh, you're a sharp one ain't you... fool? Now take your raggedy ass back home and jack it. Before I call my pimp on over here"

/Real life calling you, pick up.... Baahaaa! Right, sure. And how long do you think WoW was out before they even did the open free trails? They sure the fuck didn't do them opening day. That would be retarded. Come on people...

edit: Maybe if you help to re-elect Obama by the end of his second term this will be a full blown Socialist country then all games... hell, all entertainment (like rationed Vodka) will be free to all. Sounds good, right?

My pre-order will be going to somebody else. I tried to get excited about it but in the end the boring combat seal it's fate with me.

The plaintiff said because of the alleged trademark infringement, consumers have become confused between the makers of the pre-existing Fallout games and Bethesda's more recent Fallout 3 -- a situation that Bethesda wanted to avoid.

Confused? Have they got Internet access? Fucking Google or Wiki it for Gods sake. Besides how could you get them confused they are freaking numbered and named differently. And F3 is nothing likes it's predecessors....

News Comments > Aion Open Beta Notes
9. Re: Aion Open Beta Notes Sep 6, 2009, 21:28 Paranoid Jack
 
I got in about fifteen minutes after my last post. I create two of the same characters on the opposing faction. And was totally blown away to find the starting quests are the exact same thing for each side. So besides one side appearing darker... the characters are also the exact same.

Are there any regulars that can verify things aren't really this bad at any point/some point further up the line? So far I'm very glad I checked this one out before purchase.

I think that's one of the main reasons I don't feel any excitement while playing MMOs anymore... well, after the initial excitement of seeing a new game-world.

Aion is the same way...

An update to the blow by blow process of getting logged into Aion.

I've now been attempting log in for 45 minutes. On this last attempt it took roughly 45 seconds to get to the log in screen. I entered my info waited ten plus second to be greeted by the EULA. I clicked Accept without reading as usual and was shocked to see a server list appear.

I picked a server clicked again and was disconnected within ten seconds to once more be dropped to desktop by the lovely auto shut down of Aion.

Please, tell me it's just me. Has anyone successfully logged in?

edit: I made it onto a server created two characters tried to play one the screen locked up for about a minute before I was auto shut down... again. So, yeah, a normal to poor MMO launch can be expected.

Well it's now 9:12 and both the log in server is down and their website is unreachable. Hmmm....

edit: Even worse is the 30+ seconds of load time to get to the log in screen, the ten seconds after entering your info to fail, and followed by the brilliance of their program's auto shut down.

Was actually thinking about buying this to play for the free month... not so sure now.

edit 2: More humor ensues... the log in servers came up. Told me I didn't have authorization to log in because I haven't made my payment. Not in those exact words but that was the gist of it.

8. Dragon Age Origins on D2D Sep 4, 2009, 00:54 Paranoid Jack
 
Warden's Keep
Discover what happened to the Grey Wardens order at their darkest hour and unlock secrets hidden for generations. This new content will lead you on a harrowing adventure with all new achievements, unlockable character abilities, powerful items, and much more!


Is this something specific to D2D? I haven't heard of this bonus quest before. All CE purchases give you The Stone Prisoner quest from what I've seen. And a few variants on items so far.

edit: Just noticed the D2D version is $5 more also...

News Comments > Blizzard: New MMOG "Significantly Different" from WoW
3. Re: Blizzard: New MMOG Sep 1, 2009, 21:26 Paranoid Jack
 
What do they expect? People to pay for 2 at once? GTFO Blizzard. You made a great MMO no doubt. But there's no way people will pay for 2 at the same time. That's just lunacy.


I'm not so sure about that. I've paid for two subscriptions at once before though I'll admit it wasn't for more than a couple months. What it always comes down to in/with games is that you want to play the one you like the most. Nothing else matters. At least this is how it's been for me for the most part.

It's almost too funny that they are worried about pulling subscribers away from their current cash cow.

Lately I can't go back to anything (MMO) that I've already played and left behind for whatever reason. I've tried all the come-back to us specials and not one has made me stay more than the week or two that was free.

I wish they'd just release the damned info and stop the media whoring.
