News Comments > Star Citizen Passes $3.5M
21. Re: Star Citizen Passes $3.5M Nov 15, 2012, 02:24 Fion
 
I'll wait before giving any money. The game looks like it's gonna rock but the developer seems extremely ambitious and in my experience generally when ever I see a super ambitious project it ends up going in every direction but the center if you get what I'm saying. IE, they reach for so much they forget about the heart of the game and it gets lost in the flurry of cool features.

In the end I'm a bit more hyped for Starbound, but thankfully thats coming out around xmas last I heard.

No UE3? Thank god.

QFT. I am so sick of the UE3 engine. Every game looks and feels identical because it is so prevalent.


On topic: I did a double take on the ME4. Really? ME4? I guess I should never have doubted it. But I do wonder what exactly will it be about? How can you even call it Mass Effect since the entire mass effect station network exploded and half the characters are dead? PvP only is possible, but does anyone think ME3 multiplayer was any good? Nobody I know played it past the 'oh this is new' stage. An ME game not about the games universe with a deep RP story (the ending of ME3 not withstanding) is almost unthinkable to me.

I thought I'd never see Bioware jump the shark. They are one game away from going on my blacklist, along with Blizzard.

For a tablet review from a gaming focused website you'd think they would mention the Ipad Mini has half the processing power of the Nexus 7 while costing $130 more. Their benchmark says its twice as powerful (somehow) but it too is a little funny as its marked as a 1080p resolution test but none of the 7" tablets are capable of 1080p, the Ipad Mini least of all.

Apparently even Eurogamer has iSheep.

Best mouse I ever owned, and yes I have owned a few razors and didn't really like them. I'll avoid them in the future thanks to crap like this.

Nice to see GW2 still selling like crazy and hanging on to #3 despite the popularity of Football Manager and MoH in the UK.

And yea.. Farming Manager #2? I'd never have guessed. Lots of folks who like to pretend they live the simple life?

You kill everything in basically 1 or 2 shots, are never in danger, there's a billion events going on, and every day with the dailies you get like 120K xp. (plus 4500 karma!!) Nine days later she was 80, and every day took me like 30 mins or so.

Playing an elementalist again, hopefully the class will sit better with me this time around.

Creston

By dailies I assume you mean the Daily Achievement, if not what dailies are you talking about lol. I do my daily achieve in Queensdale myself often because its really easy to get it inside an hour. Do note if you save several of the jugs of karma and use a Karma Booster when you 'drink' them, you get 6.7k a pop instead of 4.5k. I've gained 30k karma in the last week (and I've missed a few days)! It's awesome!

Oh and on the Ele, still need work but was buffed a bit here and there. D/D in particular the lightning whip got buffed pretty big.

Acleacius, there are a variety of websites dedicated to showing what gear looks like. So when you find something tantalizing on the market, you can go on GW2db or GW2wiki and find examples of the items. Theres even a website (I found it by searching 'GW2 dye list) that has all the dyes and what they look like on various pieces of armor.

So yes, having a preview option on the tp would be nice, so would a way to put the preview character in an active stance so you can better see small weapons. But there are tuns of ways on the web to see every single piece of armor or weapon in the game.

How can you not have it yet, Bats? No wonder the cool kids don't pick you for their team.

I hope the Xmas event is better than the Halloween one. Wasn't at all impressed with it.

To each their own Cutter but if you weren't impressed by the Halloween event I'm going to assume you only participated in Act 1. Because in whole, it surpassed every other MMOGs holiday event. I mean WoW has been known for having great holiday events but they usually consist of a few new quests that take you an hour, an achievement and if your lucky, a new boss to farm. Boring and tiny by comparison.

I had an extreme amount of fun doing the clock tower, the soft PvP and the Mad King's dungeon. I gained 10+ levels, got a whole bunch of fun stuff, a bunch of exotics waiting to be equipped, and two of the unique skins. I can only hope future events are even close to as good.

On topic, really looking forward to the Lost Shore later this month. The clues in Lion's Arch have been titillating, I'm sure it'll be great fun and if it includes even half as much content as the Halloween event did, it'll mean GW2 has had more 'free' content updates than WoW has in more than a year. Hell of a bargain if you ask me.

Speak for yourself PHJF. I've been on the dungeon level for ages, and cannot stay in game for more than a half an hour before my nerves are shot.

But I'll be sure to finish the game before this comes out. Looks fantastic.

It's alpha, and obviously 'very' early footage where about the only thing that works is the shooting heh. So I'll reserver judgement until at least we see the first beta.

Though I do agree, Star Citizen looks better, so does Starbound.

Amazon isn't freeked out, they are only stating the facts. The new Ipad is smaller, less powerful technically with less features while still being more expensive than the new 8.9" Kindle Fire HD.

But then again isn't that typical for Apple products? Worse technically and feature wise while also more expensive.

News Comments > Three Dishonored Add-ons Announced
9. Re: Three Dishonored Add-ons Announced Oct 25, 2012, 13:31 Fion
 
I just finished my second play-through. First time through I did the for the no-kills achieve, this time I ignored stealth and just went in and kicked everything's ass lol. The combat and 'Outsider' powers are so fun I couldn't resist. Game is so fun I may well go through it one more time just to try out some of the powers I never picked up or maxed out.

It's funny, a new Assassin's Creed game is coming out soon but I have no interest because to me, Dishonored is the far superior 'stealth/assassination' game. There are so many ways to do each mission, I discovered so much I totally missed in my first play-through. Best stealth/assassination game since Thief 2, and very clearly inspired by it.

I'll be picking up Dishonored sometime soon, the buzz is just to much to be ignored.

Glad to see GW2 is still selling strong as well.

What a fall for gaming. It started with Guild Wars 2 in late August and has only grown from there. Steam top 5 attests, it is a great fall for gaming.

TL2 > D3 in every conceivable way.

It's funny because before they both hit I would never have dreamed that would be true. TL1 was good, but it was no Diablo 2. Oh how the tables have turned.
