News Comments > Steam Top 10
32. Re: Steam Top 10 Oct 1, 2012, 05:45 Nighthawk
 
I pre-ordered X-COM when I saw that it was at 97% to the tier 3 and have been playing Civ5 all weekened, more than I care to admit.
Money well spent, and can't wait for X-Com to roll down ... saturday?

Wow, I think a few devs / publishers need to read this forum, I think this is one of the few posts on blues that isn't full of venom and rage.

I'm downloading the demo too, and about to pre-order.
Ironically I'm playing UFO: Afterlight as I download this demo.

I was interested in this while I wait for XCOM, but since it sounds like a horrible of P2W (it IS f2p right?) I'll just wait...

Half Life 3 on a 70" screen?? Don't mind if I do

//once I get a 70" screen

Chances are a 150" screen will be affordable by the time Half Life 3 comes out...
Convincing the GF to get me get a 70" will be easier by then.

When has valve given any indication that they are going to focus on console and make PC second? You're either clueless or trolling.
They are probably just trying to branch out to the console market to compete with the PS store / XBL market (maybe setting up a base for making their own console).

Frankly I think it's about time someone took the step to bring our PC's / laptops to the TV.

I wish that was the case, too many people spawning 12 person transports and leaving with 11 free seats.

The flip side of that is true also, I spawned a Liberator Bomber today and had a hell of a time filling it's 2 seats (tail gunner and bomber)

I've got a 10 hours played (http://raptr.com/grady450 )and have put a decent ammount of time into all the classes. Never played the first one.
It's good, although a little unbalanced with the factions, a lot of people seem to be avoiding the Vanu Sovereignty for some reason, and have to learn how to multi crew vehicles (taking a liberator bomber and flying off with nobody else? that lets you have a gun, no bombs).
The gameplay is good, performance has improved, but people are going to be the problem.

I'll post the inevitable "Maybe this is the new X-Wing game" thought.

That's what is going to kill Ghost Recon Online.
If anyone still plays it after the 93% piracy comment....

Did he said AAA RPG while previously mentioning online and mobile platforms? I'd be interested to see what he can make in terms of a AAA RPG for my android phone.

It's a shame, I saw this at gamestop and it had my interest, for $15 I would have probably picked it up, but with the comments that most of us are pirates, I think I'll let my wallet do the speaking for me.

Unless Chris Avellone and team are there, it's not Black Isle.
And Brian Fargo
and Feargus Urkhart
to give credit, the black isle team was epic.

I tried both D&D online and Lord of the Rings online (both by turbine) and I find LOTRO is more polished, I prefer it more.
Then just to give others a shot, EQ2 F2P, which was very poor as a F2P game (2 bank slots? really?).
D&D wasn't bad, just didn't pop IMO.

News Comments > Battleground Europe/WW2 Online Now Free-to-Play
12. Re: Battleground Europe/WW2 Online Now Free-to-Play Aug 11, 2012, 23:54 Nighthawk
 
I remember one of the best times I had gaming was on this game.
I had picked the 47mm AT gun, dragged it out by hand since very few people ever took trucks, and parked aiming at a road between 2 bushes.
I saw a panzer driving down the road and my only shot went in between his wheels and took out his engine.
He skidded to a stop and lit up on fire, didn't see me because of the smoke and despawned shortly after.
Epic!

This was a good game, but see the first para, it was taxing, had a lot of potential though....I might pick it back up.

You need a uplay account, but not the client.
That being said I've uninstalled this game twice (closed beta and open beta).
It's pretty, decent idea, handles well...
and it amazingly biased towards a defender.
The problem is that it's in 3rd person perspective, so when a defender is hiding behind a wall (or door or car) they can move their camera angle to see what's ahead of them.
When you're attacking they pop up, bang and kill you.

I thought this used a Unreal engine since it pretty much behaved like one when I picked it up last year during the steam sale. Pretty much was hitting every tower defense game last summer to kill the time and while this was ok, it just wasn't interesting enough for me to reinstall during my winter rebuild.
I'm in the same boat, playing a lot of tower defence games on my phone and picked this up a while ago. It's a nice gimic to be able to go into 1st person and shoot too

You could always pick it up on steam for...the current SALE price of the game, and never get charged for DLC's.
75% off ATM $5 for another 30h
$8 for both 1 and 2

Awesome game, I doubt it, I've been playing the original since I got it free when I pre-ordered #2 on steam, and I'm amazed at how much of a diablo rip off it was, down the to music!
Entertaining yes, soothing my diablo fix, yup, but awesome it fails at.

That being said, I am anxious to try it and see the improvements.
