Given its price point how many people bought it simply because other people had it? What's the average continual play time of this game? How many people bought it and checked it out for a week and never touched it again?

Do you really think the vast majority of games aren't played for a week and never touched again?

Kotaku is probably the worst site out there to make the argument that game "journalist" aren't all trash.

It's still hilariously buggy at times. Decided to replay it a few months ago and got stuck in the elevator in the tutorial and had to restart.

wat neotokyo? The mod that no one plays because it hasn't gotten a update in 2 years? The mod's page doesn't even have mention of greenlight. I guess it was voted in the hopes it will get a update finally. Shame if it doesn't too, game was too fun.

At least even for a short while people will play it again. Time to reinstall~

Only thing I'm confused by this is, how could the people at funcom seriously think they could release a unfinished buggy piece of shit 3 times in a row? Hope the company dies personally.

Played it a bit. Meh, I got sick of cs long time ago(been playing since the 2nd beta like 10 years ago) and really can't get into it. They added a few things but it mostly feels like a normal content patch from before the game went retail. If you still play cs regularly you should get it, if not don't.

Nickpick tiem: why the hell can you not see everyone on the scoreboard? Only the top few players on the team are shown, so often you can't even see your own score let alone see whos dead anymore.

fyi the button scheme for mk9 is exactly the same as mk1. It doesn't even have the run button from mk3. And sf didnt invent ex moves either.

Reminds me of demigod...in which case....NO THANKS!

Are you seriously not going to play any game in a genre because you played the worst in the genre?

I doubt LoL hurt this game as much as DotA 2 has. You went to HoN for competitive play. You played LoL just to have a good time. DotA 2 has eaten up the competitive market so that doesn't leave HoN with much left.

This is not true at all. Hon was a ghost town long before the dota 2 beta came out. And LoL had more tourneys long before dota 2 also.

Glad resistance is dying. Most generic fps I played in a long time when I got the original. One of the worst purchases I have ever made game wise.

I liked the original the best (even with the bad translation). EP and IS were okay too. You know, before the series went mainstream and gone full anime. Don't mind me I'm just jaded as hell. It's probably the childhood nostalgia.

You describing any of the persona series full on anime(you cant be talking about the visuals right? I mean even the orginals had anime visuals) confuses me. I mean, One of the things I constantly hear and agree with about the last 2 is they were not like a anime whatsoever. They had damn good writing and if wouldn't be weird at all of the next persona got rid of the anime visuals.

Boy, the Persona series sure has gone to shit.

Based on what? Persona 4 that was perhaps the best in the series? Or the fighting game by the guilty gear and blazblue series?

If any of you hating on Dooom 3 didn't fall into it's atmosphere, then clearly you weren't able to let yourself "go" and experience it first person...that's the whole point of the FPS genre. Maybe your senses have been dumbed down with egotistical "this isn't scary it's dumb" machismo.

O wow, "dumbed down" has truly become the hitler of the gaming world. Just throw it out there when someone disagrees with you even if you have no concept what it means.

Doom 3 was a sad attempt at id trying to show the world they can do something besides multiplayer. They tried again with rage and failed even harder. They just need to swallow their pride and make a competitive online shooter again, might get their old fans back.

Then again I used to say they also make good engines and should focus on that in the old doom 3 threads back in the day(and was declared a troll for implying doom 3 might not be good). I question that now. Id has always made pretty games but the engine themselves were bad compared to the unreal engines. Seems even more so now, even the crysis engine is a competitor.

News Comments > Civilization V Free Weekend & Sale Underway

God I wanted to like this so badly. I really did, but at release it was a mess. It's playable now, but still too frustrating the play. Just took one game for a scout from a random neutral civ to block my entire army because I cant just move on the same space like civ 4. 10 turns later the scout did not move. So I had the choice of moving my entire army back the way it came and lose a good 20+ turns, or declaring war on a civ when I'm in the middle of a close war. I decided to uninstall.

Don't even get me started on the completely random civ ai that goes from loving you one turn to declaring war on you along with the entire world the next.
