Sounds good in theory at any rate. And good catch on King Solomon's Mines, Blue - love Stewart Granger - as I was thinking of Professor Bernard Quatermass instead.

They are getting slammed pretty hard in the forums. Not going over very well at all.
Devs are bunkered down and not responding.

Not interested. Ubisoft has been given a lifetime ban from my PC (and I don't do consoles).
You say that as if you don't pirate all your games anyway.

Uh-oh, some console kiddie has her panties in a bunch! Yeah... I'm a PC-only gamer, so I must be a pirate. You work for Ubisoft?

PLONK #4


and those console games are never pirated--right? Or the consoles 'unlocked' (ahem hacked) to play illegal stuff???

I have made the 'Alton' wings as well and I have to disagree. Alton wings are the best oven made type and no greasy smoke while cooking.They are just time consumming. Nothing beats the fryer or smoker though.

i'm gonna call it: this game had lots of internal issues and lots of delays amd with a large budget no less. It will suck big time.

I sure hope you're wrong, but the delays do have me wondering.


PC gamer seemed to really like it

Hopefully the PC version-is a PC version.
And if anything--the game was cut due to console limitations.

Thanks for the heads up on Colonial Marines--saw an ad on TV last night and thought 'this looks good'. Obviously it's not.

workshop is garbage

Whenever Nexus gets off their collective butts and takes their mod manager out of beta (after how many years????still in beta--like russion roulette)I might accept your obvious bias--but until then--it's just your misguided opinion. Never had a problem workshop.

#1 good idea "with no Quick Time Events," (and other consolitis deseases that infected the game too)
and hopefully 100% pc dev then port to the consoles--in 6 or eight months.

Just checked steam(PC) and it says 12 more hrs until it is unlocked.
I guess the announcement is accurate--it's "available now for download"-- but they forgot to mention you just can't play it yet. It's not really "open for exploration."

More about that here

Gilbert says Steam is wrong and he throws the switch
https://twitter.com/grumpygamer/status/294140528038137856

Bottomline there was a f up somewhere but Gilbert says 4pm PST today in his twit.


The reviews I read aren't raving about it but they aren't hating it either.

Still want 14.95 a month for elite status with stuff the others won't get---the fine print is the 'core' of the game will be free.

Aand because it'll be a new release, I bet it won't go 75% off when the base game does during the Steam Holiday Sale. I can wait.

On sale for 99 cents, and I would consider it and then not buy it.

"I didn't buy GW2... I never play a MMO without either beta or trial. And they didn't let me in the beta for Secret World (or GW2, for that matter) ;p "


Smart!!!!
GW2 was great at first, but Anet has really nerfed the game, reduced loot, no loot, or just plain junk,made it into a grinding game, or (what they really) spend real money on gems. Not near as much fun as it was.

Wish all the mags would review it again, I am confident that they would all lower their scores.

Maybe I'll give this one a go.
