Yes. I wouldn't play it any other way.

I'm tempted to pull the trigger on revengeance. It's got some good buzz. Any impressions?

So far I really like it. Gameplay is excellent, it looks pretty good, and no performance problems anywhere (it's really smooth). I'm playing with a controller, though, so I have no idea how good (or bad) the K&M controls are.

If you like the genre, I would definitely recommend it, assuming you have no issues with the crazy region-locking.

Given that flood zones historically were no man's land, and only recently people have taken to living there, I find your mistake to be a fascinating observation.

Yup. That's exactly why I asked.

So glad to see Anno 2070 in that list. It's a fantastic and mostly overlooked game.

Also, glad Starbound is there. It's a great game already, and it's not nearly complete yet.

Terrible bad fortune for them, hopefully they rebound well. I bet we'll see a kickstarter for No Man's Land soon enough.

Was that an intentional pun on the game's title (which is "No Man's Sky"), or just a mistake?

John Carmack, over hyped.

Ignorant troll comment.

He is/was an incredible technologist, not a game designer.

This. One thousand times this.

I've not been following every thread, but it is more accessible off the bat than the previous ones? I think I only tried the original and X3, but in both cases, I kind of felt lost and not sure what to do.

Tough question. Right now, I'd say it's not more accessible, but that's because of interface issues and some questionable design issues. If they fix those (like a better map more suited to navigation, better situational awareness tools, better options for commanding ships, trade command cancellation, etc), then I'd say it is potentially much more newbie-friendly than X3 ever was.

For the time being, though, it is confusing for veterans and newbies alike, so I'd recommend waiting a bit while the rough edges get patched. Egosoft will do that soon enough.

Lords of Shadow was so disappointing that I have to voice my displeasure in every related thread.

That's funny, because it's my favorite game in 2013 so far (with DmC as a *very* close second). I loved the game.

I'm looking forward to the second one, and this trailer showed exactly what I was hoping to see in terms of history. February 27th can't come fast enough.

Is it just me, or do they attack a lot sooner now? I am noticing they are almost crowding me when I am fighting someone, I am CONSTANTLY doing a counter move. Wasn't this in your face before. A nice change, since the fighting in the previous 2 were easy, they would really spread out and let you get tons of long combos. This one you have to be smarter.

Not just you. Bad guys are more agressive, and so is Batman. I like the change too.

Batman: Arkham Origins is awesome. Just like the first and second game. People who love the first two but complain about this one probably have a hard time dealing with the fact there's not much innovation. Other than that, it's just more of the same awesomeness.

Ditto. I'm really liking the game so far, though it's considerably more buggy than City was at release. I hope they patch the game soon enough.

Wow. Naruto at number 3. Unexpected...

For the record, I'm playing it and it's awesome. The way the graphics work is mesmerizing - it's all fully 3D, but it feels 2D - I've never seen anything quite like this before.

As for the gameplay, it's pretty good and different from any fighting games I have played so far.

The most interesting thing is that GTA V won as Game of the Year, considering that voting began in June, ended in mid October, and GTA V was released in mid September. I don't think that would be possible without tons of people voting for GTA V as Game of the Year without even playing it.

It gets even more interesting if you think that a considerable part of GTA V - GTA Online - only went live on October 1st, and had significant issues for the following two weeks.

News Comments > Space Rangers HD: A War Apart Released

It's roughly US$ 10 (more precisely R$ 19.99, with the -20% launch discount) for me during launch week on Steam - other regions are reporting prices in the US$ 15 and US$ 20 ranges (with the launch discount), so YMMV.

For US$ 10, I'll definitely buy this. Space Rangers 2 Reboot was one of my favorite games ever - if this is Space Rangers 2 Reboot improved, then I just have to play it.

XCOM: Enemy Within for $29.99....no thank you. Greedy price hiking makes me sad a little inside.
If its a full sized expansion like it claims, $30 isn't bad, that's the normal price of an expansion to a $50 game.
(...)
Now blizzard charging $40 for their SC2 expansion seems a bit much to me.

FYI, XCOM: Enemy Within is priced at $40 outside North America. Don't ask me why.

Ubisoft doesn't let you use their content delivery system if you buy it from places other than them.

All the Ubisoft games I bought from Gamersgate registered fine in Uplay, and I think I can download them from there (though I have to double-check). As far as I know, only Uplay games bought on Steam can't be downloaded from the Uplay client. Can anyone confirm?

So, being totally new to this franchise, I have questions. Can you fly to and land on the near by planets seen in the video, or is it strictly flying around in space to different stations? May be a dumb question, but IDFK.

No, no flying into planets. You can try to, but you'll burn into the atmosphere. At least that's what I remember Egosoft saying in the AMA they did a while ago on Reddit.

And I'd argue the game doesn't really need it. If that's something you want, you can try Evochron Mercenary, which allows you to do that.

I find it a pretty damn uncomfortable trailer to watch, to be honest. Do we really need to watch a woman being beaten up in a fairly graphic way for you to promote your game, CD Projekt?

Actually, this trailer is very similar to one certain story in the Witcher books - namely, the first "action" Geralt saw when he became a true, independent, "graduated" witcher. It's a nod to Geralt's history in the books (much as the Witcher 1 intro was), and it's pretty cool from a lore/character development standpoint - it's interesting to see how differently Geralt approaches similar situations in two very different times in his life.

Also, women are present in many of the Witcher stories in the books - not as sexual objects or damsels in distress, mind you, but as driving forces in exposing Geralt's conflicts with his conscience, his identity, and his view of the world around him. IMO, this trailer shows that pretty well, and it's far from gratuitous, especially if you've read the books.
