Nice. This is a great fit for Streum On. I loved EYE and it's loaded with stuff influenced by Warhammer 40k.

This game can still be good in it's own right. Even if someone is slapping the Homeworld name on it arbitrarily..

I don't believe everything is as black and white as Pitchford being involved makes it shit. Is he directly involved in development? Or this just in a business capacity?

According to people who donated to Hardware's development they were informed about this over a month ago and offered refunds because the "new publisher" is demanding major changes in the game's direction. So yeah, Pitchford (or at least a Gearbox rep) is directly involved now.

We do know they are dropping the f2p model. What worries me is if they didn't have the resources to complete the game and had to sign on with fucking Gearbox what is going on inside the studio? I'm glad I didn't donate.

With Randy Pitchford involved in any capacity this game permanently dropped off my radar. Remember Duke Nukem Reloaded? Why would anyone sign any kind of contract with this idiot unless they were desperate.

DNF and A:CM were both simply cases of pushing a game that somebody else had 90% completed out the door. Yes, they half-assed both of them, but it's really hard to care about something that you picked out of the garbage.

I wasn't talking about either of those. I specifically said DUKE NUKEM RELOADED. But if you want, Gearbox was in charge for over a year of DNF's development and marketing after picking up the rights and reorganizing everything. They were in charge of all 6-7 years of A:CM's development after Sega gave them the contract. In both instances Randy Pitchford blew it. Now in the case of Duke Nukem Reloaded he deliberately swindled Interceptor Entertainment with a contract filled with loopholes designed to keep them from ever releasing a game they developed out of their own pocket.

Randy Pitchford SCREWS every studio he touches.

The funny thing is, if you actually read the article you yourself posted. Randy Pitchford had no say in the shutting down of Reloaded whatsoever. Schreiber specifically says the "Meeting with the Executives" was the end of Reloaded. The Executives and their responsibility to the shareholders are a step above Pitchfords paygrade and decisions.

I'm mostly just tired of people hating on the guy for no really good solid reason at this point.

The really funny thing is Randy Pitchford is one of those 5 executives and currently the only acting CEO and president of Gearbox. There is nobody above him. Anything said otherwise is misleading doubletalk.

I wish Gearbox had never acquired the Duke Nukem or Aliens license period.

And just think we still haven't seen how they will rape the Homeworld license!

As bad as it is, I'd still probably get more use out of A:CM than Hotline Miami. I hear the controls in Miami are frustrating.

I avoid these kinds of top down twitchy games like the plague and had no issues with controls. Only one mission, the stealth hospital map, truly pissed me off.

Never buy A:CM for any reason.

Eh. I'm at the point where I can wait for another studio to develop a much better game. Borderlands 2 isn't bad, I just get Fallout 2 syndrome from it. There's so much junk piled on and not enough great stuff keeping me hooked for repeat playthroughs like the original.

Keep an eye on NEO Scavenger. I tried the beta last year and it's a very neat and challenging survival game. Picture an early 90's style RPG inspired by Cormac McCarthy's The Road and David Brin's The Postman.

Haha. I love how there's yet another A:CM fan petition, this time begging for more multiplayer DLC maps. People who love the game are so backwards. They want more DLC yet the existing ones are impossible to play because nobody has them and the matchmaking system is broken. Round and round the retard circle they go.

That's one thing you can't hold against them.

Well, it took them over a year to open that door for Rage and nobody cared.

Nice. There's at least one similar looking jacked up Corvette (or Corvette knockoff) in Fury Road.

you must be excited!

I like the look of it and really enjoyed Just Cause 2. If they can avoid doing what Gearbox and Sega did to Aliens I'll be satisfied. Avalanche has something to prove instead of riding on hype alone. I'm cautiously optimistic.

There's tons of stuff I can list from what little we've seen that bothers me. But it's a video game. They were cool enough to go back and hire Aussie voice actors at least. And they got the Interceptor design right with what side he drives on, unlike the fucking motion comic.

This happened here in New Haven. The local scumbags are more concerned with cable tv than helping the police solve the murders happening in their community. We have at least one shooting every week. A drive-by just happened at a pizza joint a few blocks from where I live. Of course they are never solved. The people who know anything only call about their precious television.

Because you're deranged?

Or maybe he's the only world leader calling Obama on his bullshit bluffs. He makes him look like a little bitch and it's so entertaining. Guess that "reset button" was a bunch of nonsense, eh? Fucking liberal ideologues getting their asses handed to them. And deservedly so.

This is exactly why these secret laws are total bullshit. Not only is the US doing this internally, but pressuring friendly nations to do the same. To harass the spouse of a journalist who received whistleblower documents is beyond the pale and a blatant attempt at intimidation. And also, too: journalist Laura Poitras being given a 400 out of 400 on the terrorist threat scale because she's a journalist. If you can't fix the real problem, just shoot the messenger I guess.


Imagine if this was going on under a Republican president he would have been finished. Hell, the articles of impeachment for President Nixon are nearly identical to the very same things Obama is doing now. IRS scandals, spying on Americans, shredding the Constitution, even an enemies list. It's all there and MORE. By the same standards he should be forced out of office. But then we'll have an alcoholic pervert uncle with hairplugs running the show. Future generations will forever look back at this time and shake their heads. Historians will wonder how a whole population could be fooled so easily by a guy who is obviously a chameleon in a suit. How did Obama make Bush seem like a reasonable guy? Why am I suddenly a fan of scumbag Putin?

Honesly living in Europe is probably what you have in mind for liberties. What i find funny is the naive notion that people think that they can have their cake and eat it to. As for M.E. livin, nah i'm good, how about you, You good bro? Because I'm sure you know that where you live is a choice, and your living where you want to. So deal broheim. As for the hating on this and that, no not at all. I think they're great bedtime stories to tell your children.

Are you high on something? Seriously. Everything you've been saying is just completely asinine and childish. High, dumb, and immature is no way to go through life, son.

You mean like everything else you say on blues right?

I always delight in reading the same tired regurgitated bullshit from European teenagers such as yourself who never worked a day in their lives but still manage to find time to lecture Americans about freedom and the Constitution on random video game forums. You know what would save us all a lot of time? If just once any of your kind had the balls to admit to what you are: a depressed bigot and coward.

dj LiTh, you are a scumbag and you know it. Maybe in 20 years you'll find the courage to look at yourself and wonder what the fuck happened.

Except this european teenager is a middle aged american who served his country, just no longer lives in it. but ya close right? Might be time to change the cheeto dust stained underwear maxy

So you're a liberal turncoat, eh? Just as good. Keep on preaching from your ivory tower.
