Do you really honestly think it's unreasonable to complain about opening day DLC packs that cost more than brand new game releases and give you far less?

See my post after yours for my thoughts on the DLC pricing.

In-short, if you are never going to pay for it, who gives a shit about the pricing? Try the free game regardless of it's pricing model. If at some point you feel you are being forced to pay unreasonable amounts, stop playing and don't pay it. It really is that simple.

I just don't get why some people are so emotional about this shit. So with that said, I am the one with perspective, others not so much.

So you might not be having any issues that doesn't mean there aren't serious issues with Gazillions billing, customer support and account systems. Their technical support boards have been flooded this last week with varying issues. Issues that were present months ago in beta and Gazillion outright ignored or didn't consider them to be priorities.

At what point did I mention anything about billing or technical issues? I downloaded the game and tried it out for free right after launch this morning.

I'm not having any issues because I'm not interested in paying $90-$250 for a game I've never played before. Especially after watching David Brevik's Flagship and their ridiculous failure with the $250 lifetime subscription for Hellgate London, on top of paying for a $60 game. (edit: which I never bought or played)

My issue however is that everyone wants to harp about prices for something they don't have to pay for. Give the free game a try, see what characters you can get by just playing, assuming you like the gameplay. But no, people just want to whine and bitch without actually having first hand knowledge. Of all those posts bitching about the game, nobody is talking about the gameplay.

Thus far I have seen no reason to have to buy anything if you just want to play the game with the Heroes you are rewarded as loot. Of the 30min I've played and at level 3, it seems like the game has potential and I'll play it as I feel like it since it's free. Am I ever going to pay $90-$250 to get extra characters? Never. If I hit a wall in the game where it feels like I'm being forced to pay more than I think is reasonable to continue playing (ie: World of Tanks), I'll just stop playing. If down the road I still like the game and they have a sale on for characters I'd like to try, I might pay $10-$20 total.

It really is that simple. Unlike others, I don't feel the need to trash a game I've never played or a company I literally know nothing about. I haven't followed the development and billing issues, because I couldn't care less as it's not something I will throw be throwing money at any time soon. Nor do I feel the need to insult others over the games they choose to play or how much money they are willing to pay to play them. Nor am I a hypocrite like Axis and trash business models of some games while raving about (and paying for) another game with the similar business model.

So the Paths of Exile shill that paid for stuff in that game has apparently never supported DLC in his life? Marvel Heroes has basically the same business model. You don't have to pay anything. Stuff is available in-game as drops/rewards.

The hypocrisy and ignorance on Blues never ceases to amaze.


I was talking in reference to all games, now here's a tissue. You don't have to blow $200 on Marvel we're well aware of that. You are not the only one who can read -- but you certainly are one of the few who make incredibly irrelevant posts with no substance while pounding your indignant chest.

I supported PoE with donations before they had anything to buy -- I know a good dev team when I see one. And I wouldn't "purchase" a *required for things* DLC from any game, as I said they are loads of shit. I'll leave that up to you Krovven, I know you bought a few and are very mad indeed... just keep playing D3... you'll make 3 bucks eventually.

Did you want to try that again and this time, make some sense?

Update: Within 15 minutes I received playable character Thing, as a quest reward.

But hey, don't let me stop those that haven't even tried it from bitching about things they know nothing about. Par for the course around here.

While the $250 all content pricepoint is rather high, you don't need everything to play and you can buy individual Heroes instead of getting bundles. From what I understand, you can swap between Heroes you own, on the fly in-game.

You choose your first free character from the choices of Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, Storm, Daredevil, and Thing. I went with Hawkeye.

I've only just loaded it up, but it runs smooth, controls are tight (ie: Diablo 3 control response, not the slow response of Torchlight).
You can interact with the environment to compliment your abilities.

For free, I'm definitely gonna give it a go and see if it retains my interest down the road to warrant paying for anything.

Apparently Heroes drop in-game as loot.

David Brevik, "Marvel Diablo", I'm willing to give the game a shot since it's free.

I'm still having a blast playing coop D3 Inferno MP10...so if Marvel Heroes sucks, oh well.

I wonder if the script will be based on this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blade_Runner_2:_The_Edge_of_Human

I remember when it came out, but I never read it and no clue how well it was received.

After Prometheus, I'm not too keen on Scott revisiting his classics again.

I wish someone would make an open world game with it.

You mean like Dead Island & Riptide? While not entirely open world, as there are some areas that require loading, they are open world games.

Maybe this is what you meant, but I would like to see a Call of Juarez open world game, especially since we won't be seeing Red Dead Redemption on PC.

I don't see it mentioned above, so it's worth mentioning...if you already own RO2, your game in Steam has been updated to "Rising Storm/Red Orchestra 2" and the single player is a separate executable (not sure under what name though).

RO2 owners get limited access to Rising Storm, ie: just Rifle class, you can't level up or customize your character.

So if you own RO2 and are curious abut Rising Storm but don't want to throw down money, you can try it out.

I'm not too concerned about FOV (in a singleplayer game), but this shit here is a huge no no.

Call of Juarez isn't fucking Avatar.

Fog doesn't exist in the real world? I'm not sure what you think is the problem with that screenshot.

I've been playing Call of Juarez: Gunslinger over the weekend. Haven't had such fun since Outlaws!

Agreed. The game is great and is the right price. I pre-ordered so I got Bound in Blood and Gunslinger for $15 and it was well worth it, as Bound in Blood is a pretty good game itself.

Gunslinger gets a thumbs up from me. Too bad it didn't make the top 10. Aside from the Story mode being good, the Arcade and Duel modes are a lot of fun as well.

Think of it as if you were to just by the pre-made themed decks and just play those.

You can swap out cards in decks, but I don't recall being able to make an entirely custom deck.

Considering you can get this with all the DLC once a year for less than the price of two pre-made themed decks of the physical cards, it's a good deal even if you only play it a few times. There is a single player campaign and you can play multiplayer or coop.

I'm saying that it would be nice to have some modern US Aircraft combat simulators, instead of these arcade shooters.

They are out there. If you wanted them that badly, you'd know about them. Very niche market these days.

Plenty of other more arcade combat focused games out there too, like Ace Combat (currently on sale on Steam). These are just the ones on Steam. There are others out there. Like Apache: Air Assault, which is on PC, but Activision for some reason didn't put it on Steam. It's actually a pretty good game (I played it on PS3).

Seeing as nobody in this thread complaining about the game has even played it...I'll just wait until a demo comes out or it's $5. I loved the Strike series of games, and would like to see a good similar game.

ohh and back then you got a nice box with paper manual and all funny stuff now...
you get a browser window telling you how many games you have and don't get me started on that shitty DLC , guess peps are to lazy to move there a.. to go out and buy there games sooo easy to sit on your a... click and you got your game.

Book

Most PC games don't even have a retail releases any more.

Materialism isn't something to be proud of by the way.

But everyone else is lazy because you have a compulsive need to have something pretty on the shelf to look at? /facepalm


don't hit your self to hard you like spyware i don't , and yes you can still get retail games tho to know that you have to get outside...to hard for some i guess Clown

You can still get "some" PC games at retail. Most you cannot. And the majority of the few titles still sold at retail are increasingly becoming Steamworks titles, or in the case of EA games, Origin titles.

The argument of Steam being spyware is long over, and you lost. If you still think it is spyware, then you are a stupid idiot that probably thinks the moon landing was done at a studio in hollywood.

But you stay strong, don't play any game that uses a digital distro service. As the rest of the world moves forward, we won't miss you.

Now looking at your post history, you basically never have anything of intelligence to contribute. I'll just ignore you now and save myself from any more idiotic ramblings.

Parias wrote on May 16, 2013, 11:04:
On the one hand, I'm really happy that the stealth dynamics in this game are a lot more forgiving - I found the process of sneaking around to be a lot more frustrating in the previous game.

My experience with Metro 2033 isn't a good one. I played about 2/3 of the game, in Ranger/Hardcore mode and I got to a point in the game that I could no longer progress regardless of what I did.

Basically the game allows for stealth and exploration. It even rewards the player for exploration by having items hidden everywhere. The gas mask canisters means you can only spend a certain amount of time exploring. In Ranger/Hardcore mode, your gas canisters don't last very long. I was down to my last canister when I arrived at I think it was Polis, apparently the final "town" before finishing the last part of the game. Upon entering Polis, which is basically a single room with a few NPC's, you can talk to a couple NPC's and use the shop.

The shop does not sell canisters, the "town" being a single room has nowhere to explore and loot additional supplies like the previous towns. As soon as you take a few steps towards one of the NPC's you go into a brief cutscene/conversation and then get thrown outside to the next mission in the game.

I was on my last canister and had about 30 secs to 1 min left on it. About 10 times I reloaded running around that area, trying to avoid the 3-4 enemies trying to kill me while I franticly search for a canister or three. No dice. I couldn't backtrack from Polis, couldn't buy canisters, couldn't loot canisters, and there were no canisters to be found in the outdoor area that I was being forced into.

My only option was to reload previous checkpoints and conserve gas canisters instead of exploring. Fuck that.

Game over. I was so pissed off I uninstalled the game. I liked the game, but it took me probably 3 separate attempts (over several years) just to get that far in the game because I kept being frustrated by several of the game mechanics (ie: using all your ammo and weapons to kill seemingly indestructible monsters).

They won't get my money this time around...maybe when it's $5.

Really? From where? Nobody releases standalone patches any more. Fileplanet and other file hosting sites are disappearing because they aren't needed.

You aren't forced to do anything. This isn't some right you have as a human being. It's a luxury. Stop playing games that are on Steam or any other digital distro. First world problems.
