So why on earth would a PC player buy 2014, if 2015 is going to be a 'next-gen' version only, and will come out soon(ish) thereafter?

It's hilarious that we see things like this as an above-and-beyond bonus nowadays, when it used to be that free updates to games for several months after release were just expected and the norm. Now, it's like, "oh we just fixed some bugs and added a map. That'll be $19.99, please. :)" and gamers don't even flinch at it.

There weren't that many games that did that. These guys have been supporting ETS2 for more than a year now, incorporating requests from their community, etc. Giving them a few bucks on dumb DLC seems an easy way to say "thanks for all the continued work!"

Just look at those in-game screenshots and tell me that's not the most beautiful space sim you've ever seen.

It's not the most beautiful space sim I've ever seen.

Please show me screenshots of this prettier space sim then

Well, this rather readily comes to mind, doesn't it?

And though it was a huge pile of poop on release (it's a bit better now, but still not that great a game), X-Rebirth is a gorgeously beautiful game. Some of the scenery in it (especially when you first see that busted-apart planet, and then realize you actually get to fly THROUGH it) is breathtaking.

Shame it wound up being such a terrible game.

In any case, E:D looks beautiful, but to me it's not the most beautiful space sim ever made.

But it does look great, especially considering the budget they made it with, and I'm definitely looking forward to the release.

Did the reason for the developers of Crysis, I presume a well selling game, to be in this situation? Did Ryse fail as hard as it deserved to?

Ryse bombed even worse than the failbox itself did, and they spent obscene amounts of money on that, as well as warface.

Crysis 3 also didn't sell that great, so yeah, they've been burning money they haven't been earning back.

All blablabla aside, this is a fucking terrible thing to happen to that girl, (yes, she probably should have been more careful, no, that doesn't make what happened to her okay) and if they arrested the guy who actually did it, I hope his ass gets treated ungently in jail for the next thirty years.

Don't feel bad. I'm a total ARCHER fan, have seen every epi TWICE, and I still didn't get it. Although, that probably says more about me...

If you don't get the "That's how you get ants" joke, you're not an Archer fan.

I just cringe at the thought of trying to get everything...I have a 300 gig cap a month, and would blow through that in no time. Hell, Dragon Age is like 25 gig on it's own, and there's a few other titles people have said are bigger.

That's why you need to do it piecemeal, and do it over time, like I have. I've downloaded about 1.5TB of games (at work ) over the past few months. Every time I get a new game, I make a copy onto my Steam archive drive.

Edit: completely fucked up the quote. Fixed.

It looks very, very purdy. Too bad it'll likely be the same five hour "sneeze-through-in-an-afternoon" campaign again.

Also, why does attacking nuclear reactors cripple the government and the military? Were they all sitting IN said nuclear reactor or something?

Great update for ETS. Traffic is a bit better in places, though still the same in others (they'll still mindlessly side-swipe you, for instance), being able to "adjust the seat" (Aka, the '1' camera) is awesome, lots more cargoes, some more cars, more cities.

It's all gravy. And they're still working on a completely new renderer which from what I've seen so far is just stunningly gorgeous.

As a thanks for giving us updates like these for free, I bought some paint job DLCs.

Actually kinda true kinda not... in that if you chose to stay in super cruiser (light speed without a jump), you could point at a star leave your computer for a few years and it would get there....(the tech in super-cruise allows for that, even if real life game time wouldn't).

Oh, it would? Then I stand corrected.

I figured it'd just be the standard "you'd keep moving indefinitely as the game just conjures up empty space around you, but you'll never actually get there" box that space games use.

Curious to see how useful the tactical mode will be. No doubt the normal difficulty setting will be balanced for the action-oriented approach but will the higher difficulties be more tactical and offer compelling tactical combat scenarios? DA2 failed in the latter regard.
Yep, also with regards to encounter frequency. I distinctly remember playing DA2 on a difficulty that required pausing caused the game to drag on for far too long with the near infinite amount of recycled uninteresting monster closet encounters. Seems to me that trying to make a game both tactical and action'y at the same time will result in sub-optimal mechanics in both departments. This certainly was the case with DA2.

It doesn't have to. They just need to cut back on the frequency of encounters, but at the same time make the encounters you do get more memorable/tougher.

Previous gameplay videos do seem to bear this out, as the PC will be running through open-world (ish) areas and rarely see an encounter. In DA2, there was shit to fight every 2 steps, and every fight got four fucking waves of magical teleporting reinforcements, even though their own lore specifically prohibits teleporting.

I think Inquisition looks pretty great, though the party members seem kinda meh so far.

Awesome. Glad to see it's moving along at a steady pace.

I do wonder why they keep harping so much on how "big" the game is, though, as the 38000 light year figure is basically fud. The game, currently, is 55 star systems big. Whether those are 38 km apart or 38000 light years each is a moot point, since the only way to travel between them is to activate the hyperdrive.

I think games is actually maybe one of the strongest mediums to allow you to play old stuff, thanks to GOG, abandonware sites, etc.

Sure, if "the server" goes down, some games can't be played anymore. Hint: Don't buy those games. Tell EA to go fuck itself with that bullshit.

Most current games that are tied to things like Steam, Uplay, Origin etc could be played indefinitely with a cracked exe. (though of course the hard part is in finding one of those without a complimentary virus in it...)

Listen to Polygon! Bow down now and just let EA do whatever the fuck it wants to! Do not speak out against it, do not vote with your wallet, just shut up and accept it. It's the Polygon way!

What a useless bunch of cuntcones.
