"truly pushed the genre forward in many ways"

Can anyone give a state a couple of these, since there literal? A beta game never getting out of beta has stated it has moved the genre forward.

Probably wont' look as good as Metro, it'll always be tied down by the awful Gamebryo engine and look like an Elder Scrolls Fallout mod.

They made a lot of improvement/fixes with Skyrim, but you know the models/animations won't be the best. But the game play will be great, something I couldn't say much so far with Metro, feels too much like the game is pulling you along its path.

The diversion tactic, they are dragging their feet so we quiet down about it, they know how it works, we can't stay (gasp) vigilant about it forever and when that time comes the corporations will get what they want. That's how this all works, right? That is why they will win, the company has singular focus and all the time in the world, would rather have it today, but tomorrow works to.

Agreed, self driving cars cannot come fast enough. I'll do my pleasure driving on the weekend, the rest of the time its just a stressful chore.

I just think how much better traffic would be if morons and assholes weren't out there fucking everything up for everyone else.

Just remember we are all morons and assholes at some point on the road.

Yeah this is a pretty big life-changer, pretty impressed how fast it is moving along. But to the freedom boys, it is just going to be another way for them to track you, you know damn well all this data is going to be collected, your car will have an ID and be pinging constantly where it is at.

I would love to be able to program and relax, however I wonder if it will be that easy. They will probably tell us we are still ultimately responsible and then we'll have the issue of a long drive it handles it 99% of the time, but I have to stay alert 100% of that time for that 1%. That is going to be rough.

It's getting 81% favorable on Steam user reviews. Go read those for more balanced and peer reviewed reviews.


80% is my cutoff, enough +90's on Steam to be able to stay in that realm.

I believe the video states the animations are stock CryEngine placeholders. This is a concept video guys, pre-alpha stuff. It's not going to look great, or even good. They just want to give an impression of how it could be. They absolutely have to nail the space sim part of it. I hope the FPS and other parts are just diversions from the grind. If they pull off the diversions competently, and the space sim very well, it's going to be a good game. But I'm an optimist.

I hope Roberts can pull it off.

Well they can just use words... "You'll be able to land on planets and then play in a FPS manner", I think we'd get it. I'm one that doesn't think it looks bad, as said, it is early. It's all about delivering it all.

But I read some of their plans with FPS, it is a lot more than a diversion, many things would be groundbreaking, they were talking a lot of destructive environments, it read as "we'll say yes to whatever you dream up", from a reddit.

I've always had a particular distaste for these articles about Glassdoor posts. Are bitter ex-employees really a good source of subjective information?

Could be. You don't have to be bat shit crazy off the wall if you get canned and can't be objective about it. But the saying "Grass isn't greener" is really true. As bad as they have it, it is like that most places in most sectors. We can do better, we can make work fun, but in the end we all have should brace that work is going to be work, probably for the best. The economy is good for the company, for the people not as much, but again it's called work.

I'm laughing at Farm Simulator making it to number two...makes me think of this.

Yeah you can't help but be a little excited about having coop buddies working together on a ship and then landing, getting off and doing some squad missions.

That said, how many auditorium reveals do they have per year? And why? Is it an investor grab? Also is that his Dr. Evil suit?

"Maria Pia Grillo suffered shock and embarrassment when she looked up her house using Google Mapsí Street View feature in 2009 and discovered an image that shows her leaning forward and exposing cleavage."

LOL on this one. She's embarrassed? Google didn't put that top on her.

I tried hard to love DA:O, but it needs so much micromanagement. I really like it, but TES games are much more my thing, very freeform and a little looser around the edges.


Well DA2 sure changed up the micromanaging part.

DA3 to me looks like a Skyrim with a few nice addons baked in, being able to use many skills as you play without pausing, being a big one. Party and Party AI being another big step above skyrim.

That said, like almost all, waiting for at least a couple days before diving in. Just in case...

So there is really going to be a EA Access, golf clap.

EA - Electronic Arts
EA - Early Access
EAA - Electronic Arts Access

You know if it were the other way around they'd be suing the balls off someone with the name likeness.

Look on the bright side, it's all shit, so there's no thinking maybe it'll be decent when you see the EA abbreviation.

If I held the same opinion of early access I would agree. Still funny though.

"AT&Tís terms of service generally prevent class action suits from customers and force users into private, binding arbitration. But even though millions of customers canít sue, the federal government can."

They need to address this issue at this exact time as well.

51 posts and no impressions...clearly nobody is buying this, yet. Being midday has never stopped anyone from posting impressions almost immediately before.

Large download and long install?
