The more painful to EA and their customers, the more likely a lesson will be learned. PC gamers stop buying online DRM schemes for single player games. Vote with your wallets.

Other than the coop, Dead Space 3 is largely same as Dead Space 1 and Dead Space 2. I played all three.

Lesson here is beware of tech demos. They can easily mislead. Based on the article it looks to me that they had cut back graphics because of console ps3 limitations. I wonder if the game would have looked better if they didn't "lower common denominator" the game.

So people made this a top selling preordered game on steam? This is a major reason why they keep making them because people keep buying this shit.

Also beware of the review embargo that is lifted when the game ships but not before.

Just another example "game" riding the coattails of a beloved movie franchise resulting in a blatant cash grab. As long as people keep buying this shit, they will keep making it. Gearbox, TimeGate Studios, and Sega, you are all disgraceful. It's embarrassing. Don't buy it!

I especially enjoy the interview videos of Randy Pitchford from Gearbox saying how "they are not settling" and are not "milking a franchise." You are a fucking liar Randy Pitchford. Fuck you. I'm I angry? Yes, I liked the Aliens franchise and it's been fucked again. Randy Pitchford you are a hack.

I liked the first 2 but but the 2nd was using the same formula where you had a bigger world. I something new and different in the 3rd not a bigger world than the 2nd.

How much damage can a person suffer. It seems to me like the devs like inflict as much trauma as possible.

I'm trying to be a charitable as possible in reading this interview. But I think it would have been better for him, not to say anything at all.

Bottom line: I don't think he understands the PC gaming market's expectation, but the worst of it is, I don't think he really cares much. Maybe he will learn something from the non lunatic and rational comments, the few and far between, I hope.

I read the article on Techreport talking about a new approach in measuring performance in addition to the the average fps, minimum fps, maximum fps approaches.

Planetside 2 is mostly meh at this point. For a game that's supposed to be about a large scale war there isn't much point in trying to "win" (by having your faction controlling everywhere on the map except the other's jumpgates) because the lion's share of the xp is earned in heated battles. It kind of makes the whole thing feel pointless. It also takes an insane amount of grind to get to the good upgrades.
I agree with you about Planetside 2. I joined an outfit (a group of players) and there isn't much an incentive to win other than to maximize certs and personal stats. It felt less pointless when I joined an outfit though. But still I think that's the biggest draw back. Though the fun can come from working as a team to accomplish some objective like defense of something or capture of something.

The most overused term in the game is "farming" which so many outfits seem to be the main thing they want to do. It consists of defending some terrain like a bio lab against enemy attempts at capture and gaining certs really quickly as they hurl themselves against your defenses. Outfits go out of their way to set up these "farms" by intentionally letting the enemy create spawn points that you don't even try to eliminate, in order to encourage the enemy to spawn and be killed, racking up the cert points. In fact outfits will give up defending one area, to defend a much more farmable area. I think there has to be some extra metagame introduced into planetside 2, otherwise people like me will lose their motivation because in the end it seems so pointless. Maybe increasing the benefits of capturing continents would help in this. Right now the benefits of capturing whole continents are small. I wonder if planetside 1 did anything more than this?

Planetside 2 does suffer from very long grinding required to get the clearly better upgrades. However largly speaking, there are few upgrades that are better. Many upgrades are better because you start with x capabilities and unused slots and later you get something that gives you x+1 capability and fills up an empty slot. But after a certain point, most of the stuff are sidegrades and not really upgrades once your empty slots are filled.

It's good. However the biggest knock against is that the devs, lately, have largely focused on adding new content, new mechs, and meaningless cosmetic content, etc instead of focusing on polishing netcode which has some issues with hit detection and rubberbanding and fixing bugs. Now I understand why that may be, new mechs and new customizing content is how revenue is generated and they need revenue to keep working.

The good news is that they already said they plan on improving netcode by the end of the month. Ideally I wish they would focus on annoying bugs that have been there forever like light mechs getting their legs hurts by traversing slightly uneven terrain at high speeds. They have already said that this is not intentional and it's a bug.

I love these who ripped off who battles. The young'un don't do any research on google to find out about the genre and how it was created, all they remember what happened during their lifetime, during their gaming years. The veterans come in (and people who know how to search for information) to set them straight.

Here I can search the web for you guys who cannot or are too lazy to:
