Wings Over Flanders Fields on Rock, Paper, Shotgun.

Wow. I've been playing the WOFF mod for about 3 years now. I had no idea it was going commercial! Absolutely wonderful WW1 flight sim. Red Baron fans need to get this one. (CFS3 can be had on ebay or *ahem* shared on the net).

With regards to The Wolf Among Us, did all the chapters come bundled with the PC version, or is it in installments? And if it's the latter, have they come out yet?

Okay, the website (pays to look, doesn't it?) says only the first installment has been released. I don't fancy buying the game and then waiting for the rest of it.

Yeah. The first episode hooked me pretty instantly... back in October when I picked it up. There has been like zero mention of when Episode 2 is going to be out. The last Telltale mentioned was that we'd hear word of the release date after Christmas. I guess they wanted to launch Walking Dead season 2 first.

It's frustrating.

Yeah - I hate "start-and-stop gaming". That is why I am waiting for the full season before I buy it. Same with Season 2 of Walking Dead. I played Season 1 of Walking Dead in a 2-day-period and that's how I plan on playing Season 2 and Wolf Among Us. I watch a TV series the same way.

I disagree. Read my previous comments. It'll raise costs, lower innovation and affect negatively good products. The right thing to do is to not buy the bad games... This will have the result you hope for.

I've read your comments and feel that they're incorrectly applied here. This isn't a class action from owners of the game suing EA, this is shareholders suing EA who mislead them about the state of the game prior to release. At the worst this will lead to product delays to ensure products meet some sort of reliability standard before shipping which I can live with. As a consumer I don't care about costs, EA is already passing those costs onto us through revenue tools like DLC and microtransactions anyway. This is not going to lead to some sort of development cost apocalypse, BF4 was a very broken product on several platforms and a special case if I've seen one.

Is this the first time something like this has happened in the game industry? I am trying to think of another instance but I can't remember another where a class-action suit was filed against a company by its shareholders. Anyway it couldn't have happened to a better company. EA sucks.

I really appreciate the mood Eidos is going for here, and I for one am extremely excited by what I've seen so far. I think sometimes diehard fans of certain properties may be way too quick to dismiss a new iteration without giving it a fair shake. While Thief 2 is on my short list of best games I've ever played, I still think this is looking swell and am optimistically looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

Trying to censor a Southpark game seems kinda pointless. After a while all the game would consist of is a title screen and closing credits!

He's right though, you do seem to have an absurd hateboner for this game. I don't get the urgency either, if they rush it's just going to be a shitshow and everyone will say RAHHHH TOLD U SO. A delay is perfectly reasonable in the context and this stuff happens in the industry all the time, this isn't the 10th delay or something silly. For the record I have $0.00 invested in this game before someone says I'm trying to excuse Chris Roberts and co.
but but but he is just hating on it because he wants the game to succeed!!!

Ahh, I get it. The "negative reinforcement" motivational technique! Or would that be de-motivational?

SpectralMeat wrote on Dec 17, 2013, 10:38:
not sure why you guys throw stones at them the first time they delay something.

I think that it's because the epic implosion of something so huge with so much money and such a big name involved would make for great reading, kind of like the soap opera that was "38 Studios", so they are hoping for failure.

Seriously though, I have my doubts about this game myself but I remain cautiously optimistic. It's not Chris Roberts' first rodeo; the man has delivered epic gaming experiences in the past. Aside from hoping this project will work out because I would love an epic space sim, I don't think the implications for future kickstarter projects will be good at all if this fails, so that gives me another reason to root for its success.

EDIT: And I think Blue is right; the way the say they are progressing faster and are delaying the earliest module in the same post is a bit jarring. While both are separate and unrelated, including both in the same post creates a bit of irony at least.

I don't feel sorry for anyone who buys this, Valve shouldn't issue any refunds, period.

Just out of curiosity, what makes you think people would want refunds? Is there something they are not being clear about on their store page?

20 newest releases? Hell, Steam can get that many new titles in 3 days time. I watch the new release list religiously because I'm a total Steam whore so I should know. The new releases listing goes in bunches of ten up to 100 and even the hundredth game on that list only released 5 weeks ago. That's an average of 20 new games a week, so if you are looking only at the newest 20 you aren't getting a representative sample. Hell, even if you look at the top 100 you aren't getting much of a sample.

On a side note, Revelations didn't even have to go through Greenlight for whatever reason.

Really? Then I'd love to know what kind of standard Valve has for which games they allow themselves and which they leave up to the community because that game is ass, and far worse than many titles that Steam flat-out said "no" to prior to Greenlight.

Two reasons that wouldn't fly. The available server(s) would likely be overloaded into uselessness with no purchasing barrier in place and I doubt Valve would be willing to foot the bandwidth bill for those free client distros w/o receiving compensation.

Well Valve allows free Demo downloads, and some of them are quite large. Not to mention people are downloading free 2 play games off of Steam now. And bandwidth? Surely it wouldn't be any worse than on Steam sale days when Steam just quits working for stretches of time because it's massively overloaded.

And a Federal judge rules today based on a preliminary cursory review that the spying program is "probably unconstitutional". He or some other Federal judge needs to take it further and put the Patriot Act under the same microscope. It is what opened this whole can of worms to begin with. It's also really the only reason people aren't frickin' going to jail for the rest of their lives and Obama isn't getting impeached right now over this unbelievable, blatantly unconstitutional over-reach of governmental power. We actually have a law that gives free reign to the Federal Government to violate the Constitution in the name of "security". I've never been more ashamed to say I am American than I am right now.

Actually Avatar was a fine film for a big budget summer blockbuster, which are usually high on star power, style, and whizbang effects while low on plot, meaningful dialogue, and depth. But unless they remove the silly generalizing stereotypes, make the characters WAY more deep and interesting, actually write their own plot instead of "borrowing" from "Dances With Wolves" and "The Last Samurai", and actually write dialogue at higher than a 6th grade level, it is simply not fathomable that any Avatar movie could even be mentioned in the same sentence as "The Godfather". Sorry James, but that's just the way it is.

SlimRam wrote on Dec 16, 2013, 20:31:
Well I can see the obvious comparisons between the two films. I mean....well...both movies...had...uh...well...characters...um...doing things on film.

And there you go, plain as day

LMAO! That is great.

The plot was 1 dimensional, the characters were 1 dimensional and the dialogue was 1 dimensional. That makes it a 3D movie, right?

Seriously though, this is not a valid excuse. They should get the fundamentals right first. An engaging, varied and interesting in-depth TB combat system should have been a priority. If you have to, then make the game world smaller. Remove some of the filler. Scale down on some parts. But you MUST get the basics right.

The combat system can be tweaked based on player feedback though. That is exactly what a beta is for, isn't it? From what I'm reading it isn't horrible; it just needs some work.

You can't assume that just because you have no interest in a game, nobody else does either.

Well gee thanks! I am not stupid you know. Dunce (Or maybe I am, just a little, but I don't stoop to making idiotic assumptions like the one you suggested - that's just insulting). But I vote shitty looking games down since that's is the way the service was intended by Valve from the beginning. I can't help it if someone else gets their panties in a twist about it. If more people did this it's possible we wouldn't see the torrent of samey, unexciting, and often just plain terrible games being dumped on Steam like we are right now. I would think any fan of quality games would agree; wading through tons of crap makes finding the quality games (platformers too) a chore. Even though I came in bitching about sidescrollers, I hate the torrent of craptastic F2P MMO's that is currently flooding Steam too. And even though I love FPS's and other types of first-person games, how in the hell did Revelations 2012 and Garry's Incident get on there? The universal consensus is that they are utter crap. Either people are up-voting EVERYTHING, or Valve is being disingenuous with Greenlight.

A Rogue-like where ganking newbs is the raison d'etre? Count me out!

On the subject of early access, I hear what the naysayers are saying but personally I think it's a great thing. What would make it even better though is if the first 24 hours were free, so you could decide if the game is in a state you are willing to pay for now or would rather hold off until release (or just avoid it completely, if you decide it's not for you).
