Looking forward to some cloud storage price wars. Love Dropbox, but it's pretty expensive for only 100GB. Storage is nothing these days. Being able to charge $0.10/GB/month won't last long.

Canceled mine, but I have it until July. We'll see if it elicits the same sort of response the last netflix price hike got.

As someone elsewhere posted, I'd rather just drop amazon streaming video from the package, to offset the price. Also, if they're going to charge for two day shipping, they need to stop using UPS smartpost, as those dumbfucks can't deliver shit.


I seriously doubt there will be any major backlash. The price has not increased in the 9 years since it launched. I think it's pretty unrealistic to assume it would never go up. And over 9 years, the $20 increase amounts to ~2.5% per year, which is in-line with the inflation you see on every other cost in your life.

Will definitely wait on reviews, but being that I'm an incorrigible graphics whore and this looks way better than my Skyrim installation with 150 mods, I'm guessing I'll wind up getting it even if metacritic is less than stellar.

Almost wish I gave a rat's posterior about games with no single-player component.

At the same time, I do understand that it's not always a good use of a studio's time to develop AAA single-player experiences that gamers run through in a matter of minutes.

Had high hopes, but dumb, dumb, dumb...this is the very last time I ever pre-order a game. Going forward, if a publisher/developer wants to put together a crap title, fine, but the most they will ever get from me is a couple dollars on a Steam sale if the curiosity is really killing me.

Glad I watched this vid. The combat is standard MMO stuff with everything on a timers. Total pass for me.

Exactly. It would seem MMO's will never change for the better until there is so much processing power and memory available that it's possible to build truly dynamic, malleable, persistent worlds. So maybe we're talking Star Trek holodeck level computing power.

Yes, Blue, you really should have flagged this post with the warning "Possible Spoilers!"

This actually looks kind of cool.

It certainly has a decent name.

Maybe Star Citizen should switch engines. Heck, they could make it another stretch goal.

....eh....it's already out and it was on sale for $10 on steam recently. Charging $59.99 for another pc version would be hilarious. (I think the Definitive edition is the PC edition)

Exactly. Picked it up for $10 on a flash sale. Awesome gaming value. Thoroughly impressed with the production values.

I'm sure it's easier to get funding when someone like John Carmack is your CTO.

John Carmack, over hyped.

Ignorant troll comment.

He is/was an incredible technologist, not a game designer.

Why only 10 minutes in Windows 7? Maybe Microsoft paid them.

GTAV just came out, and black flag is on the way. I always thought releasing AC4 and Watch dogs in the same quarter was bonehead stupid. Will be funny if they push it back and are torpedoed again by the pc release of gtav.

Agreed, and yes, that would be pretty funny.

No way any child should be playing GTA V. So many parents just shouldn't be parents.

I wonder if they will release for PC before next-gen. How long will it take for the installed base of next-gen consoles to eclipse the potential market for PC sales?
