Takes quite a while to get any of the interesting ships or find the interesting sectors but it is a big open game and a lot of fun.

There ya go

The SLI seems very good, nearly doubling performance and putting the 760 SLI $500 right up in the top bracket 780/7990 cards. Within 10% performance for $150 less, sounds like a good deal to me.

Love the game and the little addons they keep tossing in. The only thing that irks me is that the story dungeons for these events are only open for a short time.

There really should be some way to access them again after the event is finished, like connecting it to the fractals or something.

That's not a bad idea. Some of the temporary content has been awesome, like the Frost & Flame dungeon, really enjoyable. It'd be sweet if they connected it to Fractals. Items and recipes only available there like jeweler Azurite Orbs & accessories are so hard to find, if that dungeon was added as a Fractal it wouldn't be such a pain.

I personally I'm a fan of the temporary content system they are using because it means I can get unique equipment pieces that are only available for a short time, which makes my character feel more unique in a game without traditional gear advancement. The RNG can be a pain as well. I've personally been lucky, I spent about $10 and opened about 100 green dragon chests and gotten 2 dragon skin tickets & two Risen Knight Minis, but I have friends who've done far more and got nothing out of it (yet). But I'd most def like to see some of the better dungeons find their way into Fractals.

I can see how Analysts think the PS4 is going to win, at least initially. Anyone that does any amount of research quickly discovers that the PS4 is more powerful, $100 less, backwards compatible and isn't trying to be a home entertainment center in one.

I'm seriously considering picking up a PS4 when it hits, I'm an exclusive PC gamer so this is an odd consideration from my part. PC will always be my main gaming machine but with a PS4 I can play some of the great PS3/4 exclusive titles that have hit. The Last of Us being a prime example.

Plus I have friends and family who have a PS3/are getting a PS4 so I could play some games with them because only one has a decent PC for gaming.

I'm more a V:tR fan and disappointed the game is based in V:tM which I enjoyed but feel isn't nearly as good. Still, I'm looking forward to the game and mostly just one a big world of darkness to RP in.

News Comments > Planetary Annihilation's $90 Alpha
5. Re: Planetary Annihilation's $90 Alpha Jun 14, 2013, 20:58 Fion
 
More and more I'm seeing games on steam people are paying $30-50 for an ALPHA version of games that barely even works and more often than not it's a 'sequel or spiritual successor' to some classic title. That the price would continue to rise as more and more idiots buy into these things based solely on their own nostalgia, is not unexpected. Frankly I wouldn't be surprised if this sold like hotcakes.

Loved the first game. I know it didn't do well or review well and people ragged on it's short single player, but I got a tun of gameplay out of it post-story. Learning all the tricks you never need in the base game, trying to get on the speed run lists, times missions. Was a great deal of fun.

Ah the infamous boy's bathroom in the south park school.

Can't f'in wait for this game. Uplay does kinda suck, but it's still better than Origin!

Yea I'm checking this out. I'm hoping it's not P2P because I'm over that shit, and it'd have to be simply mindblowing for me to pay to play again.

I'm a little worried because afaik it has not been playable at any convention to date, even with a release date barely six months away. I was playing GW2 at Pax East two years before it even hit, 40 minutes a go.

Edit: Apprently it will be playable at Gamescom in August (the biggest gaming convention in the western world). Still if they have been unwilling to let people play it this close to launch, that worries me.

I've picked up playing Civ V again. I have G&K + all DLC, just getting back into the swing of things for Brave New World, having a lot of fun. I grabbed an awesome total conversion off the workshop, A Mod of Ice & Fire (G&K Ed), for non-book readers that's Game of Thrones.

*SPOILER*
The scenario is just after King Baratheon has died, the war has begun. You can play the lead of the major houses, game stops after Renaissance era, cities of Essos and minor houses are city states. My current game is of course Robb Stark, late-Medieval and yes, the Lannisters have been wiped off the face of Westeros. ;)

The show portrayed this major moment rather well in my opinion. It didn't, couldn't, have the emotional resonance that the book has but it was still obviously a shock to a great many people. Perhaps in further episodes it will be explained why violence at a wedding, after breaking bread is considered such a terrible thing, as the show, unlike the book, never hinted to that.

I see a mention of the next consoles having 8g of memory, but isn't that 'shared' memory? IE memory used as both system RAM and video card memory. That isn't remotely the same thing as 8g of dedicated vram.

Game has IMHO a crazy number of people playing it still who haven't followed the drama and never use forums, etc and continue to play it. I have no doubt the 'amusement park set' will sell like mad.

I agree, city size is so damn small you are forced to specialize as it is. There's no way in hell anyone could fit an amusement park into an existing city without wiping out some other industry.
