or you could just play with people you know
I know it is not easy to adjust schedules sometimes but the gaming experience is so much better when you play games like this with friends while talking smack in voice chat.

Playing with strangers in MP games always have the possibility to run into idiots in every single MP game, no matter the genre. However it also opens the door to meet new friends that are not idiots.
Just have to grow a bit thicker skin and do your best to ignore the douche bags.

I thought L4D sucked.
In SP it did, but playing with 3 other friends in coop it was a blast.
The versus mode was a lot of fun too.

The original Crysis was fantastic. Their latest games just doesn't interest me anymore.
I also dislike their very strong console loving attitude. They can keep all their games console exclusive for all I care.

I dont think they are going to fuck it up, they did do L4D after all..
Hopefully not, but you never know these days. Look at Egosoft and how well X-Rebirth turned out to be, or Maxis and SimCity, etc etc.
Plenty of bad examples around unfortunately.

This announcement sounds like it is catered for the console crowd.
"preorder" "participating retailers" "expansion pack unlock" "skins"

The game may be fun on the PC but it is pretty obvious where their main focus is.

My video review is going up Friday (release day). It will be quite positive.

Can you give us any advance details on the co-op play? This is what I've been waiting to hear about for the game.

I haven't been able to try it out because there's nobody else online before the game comes out, but I do know the details based on the menus and such. You can set your game (when it is created) to either be competitive or cooperative. In the competitive mode, the first town on the island (which can be large enough to support up to 4 players comfortably) to complete a number of random missions, have a specific amount of cash, or research a high-level tech wins.
I'm not totally sure about how the cooperative mode works, since I can't start a cooperative game by myself: it could be that resources are shared, or just that you aren't competing against the other players and simply trying to reach a common goal. I suspect the it's latter option (like you are all trying to complete the same missions).

As for the earlier comments about the difficulty of the game: yes, it is quite easy to make a lot of money through exports. However, I have lost every game I have started either because of elections or military invasions.

Thank you for the answers.

Anyone already done a 4-pack and have an extra copy?

Hey Krovven
It is off topic but meant to ask you, are you part of ShackTak?
I was watching one of the latest videos from them and saw a guy called Kroven in the squad. I know it spelled differently but thought it was you

The initial previews sound promising.
GMG has a 20% off code - FUSWJT-B1DU64-JBV8UY that makes the game $28.88

So tempted, but I already don't have any time to play anything... Sigh
I am in the same boat.
I am pretty sure you'll be able to buy it at that price later on as well.
Normally games that can be had for cheap before they come out will be the same price after release as well. Maybe even cheaper. GMG has 25%-30% off codes sometimes.

Do you know a FPS game where you can travel through space on a ship, battle and trade?

Battlecruiser 3000AD and the further titles let you do so, if I am remembering correctly.

However, for something newer, Star Citizen is supposed to have these features.

I am new to Tropico, played 4 for a bit but didn't get into it much. Do you think 5 is any better for new comers to the series or do you think knowledge of the previous games and mechanics is important?
Looking forward to your review by the way

I'd have done it by now, but MrsBlue is resistant. I think for her the scar of losing Hudson is still too painful.
It does take some time to heal, and sometimes people doesn't want another dog because they do not want to go through the same pain again when they loose them.
Most times though people end up with a puppy.

TB mentioned something in his video about the game may be slow to start and may not attract people that did not like Bastion. Is this true? Did any of you that bought the game also have Bastion?
I didn't care for Bastion but Transistor looks interesting, that is why I am asking.

I bought the Premium Beta and I was BLOWN AWAY by the flight model and the overall quality of the dogfights & visuals. I think this was the first time in 5 years that a game really wow'ed me. That x-wing, tie fighter nostalgia was right back...
Broke down and bought the premium beta this past weekend, and your assessment is pretty much spot on. The Alpha 1.1 that we have access to is a ton of fun and I am super pumped to check out the beta which is the up to date build of the game.
I am already shopping for joysticks as my Logitech just doesn't cut it anymore.
Loving that new Saitek X55 HOTAS but my wife is going to kill me if I get that as well. Have to settle for something a little cheaper .... for now

Explorable Space Stations? Funny that you want that, as one of the very first mods were to patch that crap out of the game so you don't have to land you can talk to the NPCs from the landing pad.

No Elite doesn't have that but it has just about everything else that X-Rebirth promised to have but failed to deliver on the space economy, and combat side of things.
If you want a true hardcore X game just play X3 as it is still leaps and bounds better than X-Rebirth.

What we lost is any potential for the Kinect to do something useful.

Now, what we can debate is how much potential existed. I'm going with "next to none." I'm guessing most people here think it was actually none, but I think we need to give it the benefit of the doubt and say it shifted from 1,000,000:1 to something more akin to infinity:1.
There was some benefits but not for the Blues News crowd for sure. My kids love to play some Kinect games and it is always fun for them when friends come over.
Problem is the Xbox is not a console for the kids, it is aimed towards the adults, so I am having a hard time justifying the cost when you can get a Nintendo console with similar functionality a shit ton of kids games and the console is much cheaper.
