Yeah! Let's get it on! Devs in the forum say it's coming in at 2.6 gigs.

You see how this is supposed to work InXile?

Do you see what happens, Donny?

No kidding Cutter, InXile can blow me, Im glad I backed this over theirs. This game looks far better.

For those looking for elder scrolls gameplay with multiplayer... keep looking.

For those looking for elder scrolls themes, lore, and visuals, with pretty modern mmorpg gameplay, give this game a try.


I can't help but wonder how many people will buy this game thinking it is Skyrim Online. Oh how disappointed they will be.

I really wish Bethesda the best of luck with this game, and they will really be needing it with the monthly subscription fee. I expect to see a successful release and then a flood of players leaving the game in disappointment and because of the subscription fee. It will probably be fairly similar to the rise and fall of the SWTOR MMO subscription numbers.

Iíll tell you this; I prefer a monthly fee over the F2P model any day. F2P is NOT F2P. You will end up spending a hell of a lot more in terms of side crap people always miss and need in games. Storage space, bag space. char slots. and gaining access to your funds that are placed in Escrow. Those things are not free in most of the so called free to play models.

I hate mmos, but I LOOOOOOVE Elder Scrolls. I'll play it, but I expect to grow tired of it very soon.

There's a tragedy here though. They designed a ton of provinces in a very short time. This mean that they'll be very generic. They won't have the absolute love that Morrowind and Skyrim got for example. This means that the next single player Elder Scroll games' creative liberties will be severly limited...

There's already proof of that, let me dig something up.

Edit: Can't find the image, but basically, the lore describes an Elven city as being amazingly bright and alien, but in ESO it looks like a generic brick fort...

I was one of those 300K that played it the entire weekend, I really liked what I saw, but there were defiantly a lot of issues that needed to be ironed out. Iím pretty sure there going to be more betas after the holidays. So it will be nice to see the difference once this goes live in April.

Iím kind of surprised at the early release date; I kind of figured a June release. As with any new MMO there are going to be launch day issues.

Gadzooks, Iím not sure what you mean about the MP aspect of the game. Itís all MP itís an MMO. People running around all over the place so your comment is very vague.

Google proves that they know about it:
http://www.grimdawn.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9041

It could be that it happened to me twice in that house. I always check out every are in a game, so I might have run into this twice.

EDIT: Tha actually happened to this guy in June, and it hasn't been fixed yet. It happened to me a couple of weeks ago.

Interesting, but I see the devs are now aware of that house. So it looks like this will or should be getting fixed. I guess itís a problem with falling through the world.

El Pit, for now I would just avoid that house. Everythng else so far like we said has been pretty rock solid.

I hope they can make Grim Dawn less buggy. At the moment I can play for 10, max 15 minutes before I am suddenly under water, can't move and have to load a game. But it nevertheless looks good, feels good, and should be successful once the bughunt is over.

Say what? Iíve been playing this game for months now, and I have never once had any issues at all with the game. In fact itís been very stable. I have never heard of this bug until now. Has Crate acknowledged this as a bug?

Acknowledged this as a bug? You mean it's rather a very annoying feature?

Happened twice to me. That's why I stopped playing. I can wait.

Iím confused El Pit, how is this a feature in the game? There is no water in the game that I have ever seen that floods an area purposely. I would still report this is your having issues like this.

Conquest is a great little RTS. If you're a fan of the genre and have never played it, it's a must buy at this price. 3 unique factions, lots of different ships, wormholes, great soundtrack. Graphics still hold up.

Yep, great game, it just needs a UI mod to fix that overly lager UI.

Wow those StarDrive reviews sure don't look so hot on Steam.
Here is one from a guy that has 550 hours on record:

AVOID THIS GAME LIKE THE PLAGUE!

this game is a unfinised beta sold as a full version!
even now, while the dev openly has admitted to pull to plug and don't complete the game! He just runs off with the money, and calls his customers names like whiners, trolls and the likes.

He has banned any user that is a proper and vocal critic of this game, and removed over 200 critical topics, during a steam sale, just to keep his scam working!
don't fall for it, do NOT buy this game, and spread the word to your friend DO NOT BUY THIS EVER.

LOL, ouch, good to know thanks dude.

I'm very tempted, after all it's just $20, but the screenshots show that the in-game view is just crammed with assloads of windows of information. That's more a MOO3 thing than MOO2.

I don't want to handhold every ship captain and squad leader, but I also don't want a glib approach to empire management.

This, this is the kind of stuff I donít care for in games anymore. Civ and games like it are great games but the overhead and micromanaging drives you nuts. I just want to jump into a game and stat a small research tree and build ships and conquer. I really donít want to handhold each and every little thing in the game.

Maybe Iím just getting old and donít have the patience any more. I used to love these types of games, but over the past several years, turn based games have kind of turned me off. Iím more into real time like Sins. I am curious like you guys though if itís any good.

Valve, a profit driven crypto-fascist syndicate

Errr ooooooook

Now, now Verno. I have to agree about Valve. Their policy on returning games does need some changing. To many times people are buying games and those games are either not up to par or have issues. Sometimes Developers get a free ride at the customerís expense.

If a return was in place then developers wouldnít be such dicks to their customers. I personally think Valve should allow a game to be returned within a certain amount of time. Possibly up to one hour after purchase you still have the option to return it for a refund or credit.

This is a good time for them to get aggressive. With ESO sucking the biggest wang ever, they might get some traction.

I play GW2 currently. I really enjoy it.

Okay, ill bite, in what way did ESO suck? Other than being an early beta and having a lot of bugs I saw nothing about the game that had me thinking the game sucked. There were some aspects that I think they need to change.

Iíve got a few level 50 plus chars on GW2 and I like the game but the biggest drawback for me about that game is the down leveling of your char. I totally despise that style of game play, I want to go into an area and not get my ass kicked like some low level noob but thatís the crap you have to deal with in GW2.

Does anyone know how their stretch goals are working for people who original funded this game through KickStarter? I checked my account and Iím not seeing many of these so called stretch goals in my account so this makes me wonder how this is actually playing out in the long term.

The reviews have been pretty poor for Space Hulk, but I've spoken to two different people who said the game is It's more a diamond in the rough than an out and out bad game from what I've heard.

Prez, I personally hate this game. The Space Marines miss shooting a target practically in their face with a flamer. I mean give me a break already. A flamer that is AOE and nukes the entire area and he misses an Alien. Thats when I just up and quit and said I had enough. There are other instance to similar to this one wit the Marines missing their target way to many times. So, I'm done with this shit title and wont spend another dime on it.

Has anyone tried The Elder Scrolls online beta? I got my key and am hoping to have some time to try it this weekend. I guess they released a bunch of keys this week. I'm just wondering if it's even worth the effort. I downloaded the game last night.

not avalible until tomorrow 3pm Eastern.

Yes I got one and so did a few of my friends, it looks like they invited pretty much everyone.
