News Comments > 75 More Steam Greenlights

I think the steam store could use some upgrades at this point, especially in regards to early access and all of these older titles being moved to steam. Freespace 2 should not have a release date of Jun 6, 2014. Their system is getting overwhelmed by everything they are allowing in and I think it's starting to detract from the service.

Originally Greenlight seemed like a cool idea, and I"m sure it helps some of the smaller and more indie studios get a great platform to host their game on, but it's starting to feel like searching for a needle in a haystack.


I know what you mean, truthfully, they need to segregate the indie titles and Early Access stuff into its own section and not mixed in with all the premier titles. To me all of these green lite games are pretty much being whored out to us and its clogging up the pipes.

Itís sad that all of these games are making their way into steam. Out of those 75, ill guarantee you that about 5 or 6 of them are only worthy of buying. More pipe clogging.

Itís kind of odd that they are not offering any of the Advanced Pre orders on Steam for this yet, but they are offering a pre-sale on other sites. At least I thought they were offering pre purchase on other sites. Maybe Iím wrong. Weird!

Good lord, SotA looks so dated already. I'll be pretty amazed if it's anywhere close to the caliber of the old Ultima games. My hopes are not up on it.



Already? LOL, no dude, itís been this way since the day they made it. Itís a shitty game and yes the low end graphics are atrocious. Plastic looking models and low end textures in the game are about as bad as it gets in a game. I canít tell you how many of us who supported this game has expressed our concerns about this and you wouldnít believe how many people are and have been defending the game like a bunch of rabid dogs.

Trust me, this game is going to flop, and flop hard. It will most likely be the dagger that ends Garrett and his developing career.

I never buy the "I'd rather look at a girl's ass while I'm playing cuz I'm totally an alpha male" tripe either. Any guy who's that insistent on playing females secretly wants to become one. There's nothing else to it.


This has to be the biggest line of BS I ever read here. I prefer playing female chars in MMOs and other type of games. And yes. Itís because the female chars are more fun to look at. Iím far from Gay, been married for 22 years and still going strong. And I have a very good wife. So thank you very much!!

I have no desires to be a female nor will I ever. So you and your comments are so far out in space itís not even funny. You need to get out more.

I personally donít understand how it went from the west coast to now the east coast. Especially when the Army was pushing the KPA back and winning. But I did like that the guy said this game is going to support 4 players Coop.

That DLC didn't take long to come out

Feels like a slight of hand action going on here. Like, UBI with held some of the games content and decided to pass it off as DLC. Same old bullshit, just another day in gaming.

I'll pick it up for cheap. I'd be a lot more excited if I hadn't burnt myself out playing 2 forever. (And that's more my fault than the games...)


I love the series too, but not for 60 bucks, Im a little suprised this game is going to be sold for that much.

I guess ill be waiting for a sale too.

Only free if you install immediately.

Crazy. Maybe genius, maybe annoying, but it definitely makes me likely to play it now. Otherwise, it'd sit in my list uninstalled and unplayed likely forever.

I started Dead Island recently and, after spending an hour searching for 10 bottles of booze, I may be done with it. Maybe I'll switch to this.

dude, if you cant find booze there's something wrong wit you. the booze is everywhere. and besides that's a side quest, not important to worry about. As for Sniper Elite 2. that's a game worth playing especially Coop. I had a blast wit ha friend playing that GAME.

And Batman, lets be fair now. that game is a bit old now so yes the number of players is defiantly going to be low.

That was a useless trailer---show me some actual in game footage instead of a bunch of bad pics/extremly bad animation. Please

Agreed, worthless trailer, if you want to make a pitch to sell your game, you had better have a trailer worth showing off that shows actual game play.

Iím less then thrilled about an RPG game like this that has around 5 hours of game play. RPG games in general will usually give you 15 plus hours. This must be a really small game.


Edit: Okay, I found an actualy game play trailer. not sure why they are not using this one. The game play looks ok, but not great.

My guess would be, they are going to offer V2 in some kind of special deal with you buying V3.

I also loved the game played it Coop, and it was a lot of fun. I also liked the Zombie games they made too.

I could never get past the idea of Korea taking over all of Asia and China being perfectly fine with it.

Hope they do something more interesting with the story this time around than trot out every single military occupation cliche.

Originally before this game was released and in development they changed who the enemy was, it was originally the Chinese, but even that is preposterous. The Chinese, hell not even the Russians have enough Navy or transports to pull off an invasion of the US. In fact the US is the only standing power on earth that can invade anywhere on the planet with the full force of its military.

So yea, some morons who originally were developing the game were pressured to not antagonize the Chinese by making them out to be a bad guy. Thatís a joke in itself, because they are not our ally.

Now that it's out of beta, i'm quite enjoying it. And Carbine appear to be doing a wonderful job communicating, and stomping out early access issues.

Does it do anything new? No. Who cares? Is it fun? Sure.

runs at 60fps w/all eye candy up, looks great,


Iím sure it runs very well at 60 frames. Why shouldnít it, its running on older tech. These guys are using the same tech they build WOW with over 10 years ago. So it damn well better run at a high frame rate.

I tried it a couple of times during beta. The overall goofy cartoon theme is fun, complete with Unreal Tournament style voiceovers for kills and such, but man was I bored by the third area. It's WoW in space. Seriously. Yeah, the combat is a bit of Tera thrown in, but I just could not force myself to keep playing.

If it was buy to play, free to play, or free with a sub, maybe I would fire it up once in a while. But $60 with a $15 monthly sub? No, not interesting enough for me to shell out that kind of dough for it.

This is how I felt to playing this game. I just could not get into it or bare to play it anymore. it bored me to tears. Not a game I thought it was going to be or wanted it to be.

Yes, ESO at 30 dollars is a great deal and a much better game if you ask me.

All I can say about this is, this is why these assholes take advantage of you all and charge these kinds of ridiculous prices for early access. I donít mind spending money on a game, but not being raked over the coals at the same time too.

Really?

1. Everyone has a price threshold that they are willing to pay. It's not being taken advantage of if you're WILLING to pay it. The product has THAT value for THAT purchaser.

2. This is a game by a gaming legend that couldn't get traditional funding. As the saying goes, vote with your wallet, and people are voting early and often to show their support for this game and this genre.

3. As mentioned, this is the way the KS was structured, and it's early access. It's specifically designed to raise revenue so the game can be finished. If the price doesn't meet your threshold, wait. It's really that simple, and there's no need to call David Braben and asshole.

Really Darks, what is with you lately?

PMS dude, anyway, all I was saying is that if you guys keep empowering these guys by submitting to the high price of early access. All youíre doing is telling the developers itís okay to do this because you guys are willing to buy into it. I donít mind playing 50 bucks a price thatís over their original cost. But I donít pay for betas access. Never have and never will. Iím not telling anyone here they shouldnít do it. That is me and how I feel about it.

Someone said, this was like paying for future DLC. I didnít see anything on their site that said; hey you are guaranteed free DLC because you paid more. Iím sure these guys are stand up guys and good. But I just see how paying more for a game then itís worth justifies that price.
