I remember when people praised Stardock when Sins of A Solar Empire came out, I was one of those people. Back to Elemental, I don't think they are being greedy, they made a critical failure on initial release. I've heard they fixed a lot of issues.

I haven't bought Elemental yet (so I don't have the rage face everyone else has), I plan to when it drops its price down to 10 dollars or something.

I was a big Stardock Fan because of GalCivII and Sins. I bought Demigod and got burned, and planned on picking up Elemental if reviews were favorable. Needless to say, I still haven't bought it and my faith in Stardock has been shaken quite a bit.

I continue to watch them to see what happens, but they no longer get the benefit of the doubt. In fact, very few studios do anymore....*sigh*

Does anyone even care about this game on the PC?

I'm looking forward to it, even though they seem to have chosen to inject some unnecessary immaturity into the game. These are the guys that made Painkiller, so I was automatically interested upon hearing about it.

I play Black Ops regularly and enjoy it (multiplayer only), but honestly, what else is out there right now for shooters? TF2 was great, but the addition of so much extra crap has turned me off from it. Bad Company 2 is fun, but I prefer straight up infantry combat.

Right now my hopes are pinned on Brink. Hopefully in a few months we'll actually get to find out.

News Comments > Dragon Age II DLC and System Specs
50. Re: Dragon Age II DLC and System Specs Jan 7, 2011, 16:09 Bucky
 
Wow, I guess I'm in the very small majority on this one. I enjoyed Mass Effect 2 more than ME, and the changes they're making to Dragon Age 2 actually have me a bit excited. I prefer the faster paced combat, I never use the tactical camera, and the loss of party banter, while sad, doesn't really bother me.

It would have been a launch day buy for me, so pre-ordering and getting the DLC is fine by me. I'm not particularly thrilled with the way game DLC seems to be working out (pre-order store exclusives really irritate me) but I'm not so bothered that I'll boycott a game.

That Dragon Age 2 isn't just like Dragon Age isn't a problem; more of the same just leaves things feeling stale. While they've likely made changes I won't like, in the end it's a game, and if I have fun it's a success as far as I'm concerned.

Ah, my mistake. Thanks for the correction.

I think I'll just overclock the crap out of my 920, since I've got excellent cooling on it and hold out another year. If I can resist the 'ooooh, shiny' response.

Agreed. Also, the i7-2500K looks like a perfect upgrade from my i7 920. AMD's Bulldozer is rumored for an April release date and can drop into existing AM3 motherboards (meaning lower hardware cost) but I doubt it'll have the price/performance to match the Intel stuff, at least not at the ~$200 price point.

Heck, I own another copy of Dragon Age because it was cheaper buying the Ultimate Edition on sale than it would have been to pick up all the DLC separately.


I'm consistently interested in AI War: Fleet Command. For $3 I think I'm gonna have to buy it.

So, anyone have any particular recommendations? I already have Bad Company 2, Supreme Commander 2, Portal, Batman Arkham Asylum, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, Call of Juarez Bound in Blood...

I thought about Titan Quest, I mean seriously, $3.74 are you kidding me, but I really don't want to buy something just for the sake of buying it. It's bad enough that I also bought Metro 2033 about a week ago but still haven't actually tried it yet.

Having just bought a 3d screen too, games that look particularly good in 3d get bumped right to the top of the list.

I can highly recommend Titan Quest, just be sure to get the community patch before you begin playing. It stays true to the developers aims while fixing a lot of broken stuff.

I know I can get it a bit cheaper retail. But I would rather pay a bit more and keep all my games on Steam.

Isn't Black Ops one of those games that use Steam anyways? As Civilization or Empire for example.
In that case you could buy it via retail and will have it in Steam too. Can't say for sure, I don't have it.

Yes, Black Ops uses Steamworks.

Well, nothing jumps out at me right now. I own most of the games I want, and the publisher catalog sales aren't worth grabbing until the last day in case a specific game goes on the daily sale.

I still need to play through Dragon Age, so I'll probably grab the Ultimate Edition for all the DLC if it drops a bit more.

Break out the credit card, it's going to be a wild ride!

I need to cancel mine, now, before things get out of hand.

I've been wanting to play this game since I first heard of it. Now that I finally can play it I just need to drag myself away from Black Ops. And make sure I don't start a fresh game of Civ V.

I tossed $75 into the Humble Indie Bundle 2, with $50 going to the EFF and Child's Play. An easy way to donate, and a great way to support the bundle.

For $7.50, everyone should have Just Cause 2. Incredible visuals and just a great game to jump into when you feel like just blowing shit up.

I for one am happy that everything this guy spouts has been moved into the 'etc.' section. Now if he's just vanish altogether...

Things have been fine for me this morning. I've gotten some lag on the first kill/death, but other than that things have been smooth and the servers have been stable.

This game is my new crack.

Of course I was having crazy connection issues since the patch went out. I'm hoping it's due to the patch being distributed and not a result of a crappy patch, since I'm half a level away from my first prestige.

An update just when out for CoD: Black Ops as well. Hard to say how well it's working, since my last two Gun Games both had the server die on us.
