I had no idea what this game is, but after reading on their wiki its supposed to be a throwback to Command and Conquer? Looks sort of that way.

Same, never heard of the earlier game, Act of War either, but this looks really good, in a classic C&C way.

Added to the wishlist!

*EDIT* Oh nice, Act of War Gold edition on gog.com, might buy it

Well worth it, if you do buy it let mek now I made a map pack of several large skirmish maps for the game. really nice detailed maps too.

So this happened.

They got 1/3 of their funding in the final 3 days. 7 $5K backers, and 7 $10K backers. Kind of suspicious if you ask me, but whatever. I'm glad the game will get made.

I'm going to have to agree on that one,. I was really hoping this one would fail.

Anyway, back to Geoffrey Lewis, yea, he was a really kewl guy, very likable. And I'm with the majority. I had no idea Juliette was his daughter. That seemed to be the surprise of the week for many.

Loved Act of War, cant wait until this game comes out. Glad to see them gong back to their roots.

But I am confused as to why the Chimera is a UN funded organization that would be a faction against the US.

Sales aside, they have worn this series of games the fuck out. I mean, how many Call of Duties and Battlefields can you really get into with out some overlapping feeling that you have been there and done that.

Its kind of like Hollywood. They are running out of ideas and rehashing the shit out of old titles and remakes.

Really? You're siding with the ESA on this?

Heh, I think he was being sarcastic.

He was, some of these guys have their serious hats on and need to take a breather.

I'm in agreement that we should be able to find workarounds. Look what EA does to games all the time. Mercenaries anyone? They shut their servers down and you cant play that game Coop anymore. Such BS!!

I'm surprised that this game s still pay to play. Only a matter of time now until its either free to play or gone completely.

5. Re: WoW Tokens Explained Apr 7, 2015, 11:52 Darks
 
Why would anyone spend 20 dollars to buy a token, when you can spend 15 dollars for 30 days of game time? Makes no sense at all why that is so expensive. on the other hand 29K of Gold is actually pretty cheap to buy 30 days worth of game time.

I haven't played in years, but I had well over 1 Mill in gold before I stopped playing.

How about removing GFWL from Op Flashpoint Red River?


Just a wild guess, but I'm thinking Op Flashpoint is a dead IP while Dirt series isn't and I believe they already have Dirt 4 on the way. If Dirt 3 MP wasn't updated that would piss off many people that may skip the next game.


Who cares about Operation Flashpoint Red River anyhow. It was everything casual players wanted from Flashpoint. Quake style movement, sepier coloured graphics and a hand holding campaign - with none of the things that made the original title truly standout (modding capabilities, built in easy mission editor, endless mission design options). Which is why the Codemasters retake died a much deserved death. While ArmA lives on successfully, with all those features including the nutty stuff we all hate - clunky movement, unoptimised engine and uninspired campaign.

how about pulling your head out of your ass? Apparently I care about it and so do many others. your not the only person on the planet you know!

And besides, the game was pretty kewl with 4 players Coop. other then the shithead SGT who is over the top the game wasn't that bad.

More like abandoned. This is what happens when to many people bitch about the game. The Devs just gave up on it. Codmasters being the bigger culprit.

200+... I realize that's a selling point for a lot of people... But holy crap, even one quarter of that is too much for me... Unless the combat (where you spend most of the game) is amazing, anything over 20 hours starts to bore me... Add that to my inability to stick to one game at a time, I have a ton of half completed games...

My twin.

Typical console games are never over 20 hours. Just sayin'. I can't imagine 200+ is anything to complain about. If you know you get bored quickly or whatever --> do the main questline only.

You would be very surprised at just how fast 200 hours can pass by. If a game is really good and inciting. The time flies by quickly.

Two words for EA. Fuck you!!

This is a DRM that is not needed when you have Origin in place. Fucking morons at work here. And EA wonders why its know as the worst company on the planet. Get a clue EA, you idiots!

This seems bizarre, why would they bother with any DRM when its all hooked into Origin and BL?

So that nobody pirates their precious SP campaign?

Exactly, but that wont stop them form pirating it. The stupidity never ceases to amaze me when it comes to Publishers and their idiotic decision making.

Controller feels superior to keyboard+mouse.

I really want this game. But this point has me very worried.

for sure, Console users should stick to playing on a console. I really despise these kinds of comments.

Lets hope this guy was over stating the facts.

Glad I didn't pay for the game, got it free with my Video Card.

MoreLuckThanSkill wrote on Mar 20, 2015, 16:43:
This game looks pretty good, although I wish they had gone more traditional BG style, with 6 character parties, instead of 4 person DA:O style.

Isometric sprite or full 3d doesn't matter to me as long as the single player campaign is enjoyable, honestly. Ex DA:O developers, not really surprising they chose this kind of engine.

I'll probably hold back on buying this until some reviews on the main campaign come out.

*EDIT* clarification/grammar.


It was done with four because of Coop. but as you saw in the video you can gather companions along the way. Not sure though how long they will stay with you.

But hey, its close enough to NWN and Baldars Gate feel.

Are we going to be able to run the main campaign coop? Or will that be for only user generated content or DM run content?

Yes, its already been confirmed by the devs in a pod cast that the entire campaign is playable with 4 players Coop.

Nice, so if faster that will be a better way to play vs 1 controlling 4. So far nothing not to like about this one.

I edited my post with the link to the podcast about Coop. check it out.
