Absolutely hate the direction they are taking the game in. They keep changing stuff that was working perfectly before and don't address the real issues.

All the classes were overhauled unnecessarily and my favorite class(Captain) has had his main role(support) taken away in favor of these stupid trait lines.

Those roles are still there, they are just defined in classes now under the skill tree they added. So now you have three ways to define your char. But the support role is there. Did you not see the skill tree and how itís laid out now?

Personally, I like it, I had so many skills that were cluttering up my bar that half the time I never used a third of them. So itís nice to have it slimmed down a bit now.

This reminds me of the early days when Origin was around and made some really great games back In the day. I would always dread one of their new titles because it always made me upgrade something in my pc. Its starting to feel like those days all over again.

1. Re: X Rebirth Apology & Patch Plans Nov 18, 2013, 10:24 Darks
 
I'm amazed that they are boasting about the success of the game when it reality its a complete failure. So may issues with the game and so many people who are very unhappy. I think they need to keep their focus on the real issues and not sit there and tell people about how they are number one.

If people were able to get refunds, their number one status would sink to all new lows.

I didn't get a chance to watch this last night...While I have no idea where I'll get the time, I keep meaning to make another run through the original DA.

I hope this is better (than 2), but I'm also incredibly skeptical, at this point.


Watch the video nin, its really impressive. A complete open world to explore. This has been one of my most wanted games for a long time. a good friend of mine is actually working on this game. It comes out In the Fall of 2014.

not hardly Black, there's nothing In this game that's remotely similar to ME3. The Engine they are using is the Crytech Engine. and its looking pretty sweet for a pre Alpha.

Did we watch the same video? It looks like a butt ugly version of Skyrim, with chest high invisible walls and blocky graphics all round. The combat looks particularly nasty with those terrible animations and the horrible overgrown manga-like weapons and spellcasters shooting RPGs of blue, yellow and red color at the enemies. Still, if the RPG elements are there it might turn out to be a pretty good game all the same. A pretty big "if" if you ask me....

Sorry, I meant Frostbite engine. thanks for the correction.

Black, This is still a Pre alpha, do you know how many changes this game will got through up until release? a lot!!

You cannot judge any of the particle effects at this point. This is at best all inserted for the demo, nothing that you are seeing In that regard will be in the final game. Plus we are seeing a shaky cam of this game, that isn't even High Def. your basing you decisions already on a shaky cam video? Give me a break!

Does the game feature a German campaign yet or is there one straight out of the box?

Nope, just Russian, and the Russians were pissed off about how they were depicted in it, heh. Think there was even talk about banning it there.

What is wrong with the way they are being depicted? Because they had their back to the wall and almost lost the war until Winter set in and gave them second life because the German offensive stalled and they had supply isuses? or how the Allies, namely America saved their asses by entering the war and the Lend Lease program that they benefited from immensely. Their problem is, they don't like being shown weak. I guess the truth hurts!

War in the North sucked sweaty, stinky troll balls!

I think you are over exaggerating a bit Cuttler, it wasn't that bad of a game.

Personally, I'm getting tired of waiting on Shogo II

I cant understand why they have shunned this franchise when it was really a great game. With todays tech, it could be killer.

Think I'm going to wait for part 2 and see what reviews it gets...

Also, the screengrab from that YT video is particularly disturbing, first thing in the morning...


That, and a steam sale when Christmas rolls around.

Nin, I think you will find this interesting a review from inc gamers.

He stated it took him about three hours the first time, than ran it again in about an hour. he was not happy and stated this dlc is BS that it was split into two parts just to satisfy the season pass.

I'll buy it if they ever fixed the rubberbanding bug. I'd heard rumors that it jumped projects and made its way to Grim Dawn...
I played the GD alpha/beta for a bit and never saw it. Haven't really looked into anything in the forums about it, but seems fine to me.

Same here, I don't know where you heard or saw that Creston, but I've been in the alpha for quiet a while now and not once have I ever had anything like that occur. I will tell you this, there are some people who are complaining about lag, but then we interrogate those and come to find out they have shifty system specs and video cards that are not up to par.

Believe me, if you have a good solid system, you will be just fine.

I would imagine (looks at stats) that Steam is only 20 Million actual accounts. The rest are dupes and 2nd,3rd,4th accounts (see mess that was holiday sale).

You would be correct, I have a spare account that I only use for our lan sessions at times. So this number is deffiantly inflated.

Well, at least he has his Adamantium claws back. 1:51 of the trailer you can see those are not bone claws.

Yeah, but is that 21st century Wolverine, or 20th century Wolverine? He travels back in time to his earlier body.

edit: Maybe back in the past, they just figured out a way to ignore both Wolverine movies... Granted, the most recent one wasn't nearly as horrible as the first, but it still wasn't great.

Well, if you recall, they met him at the airport. He still only had Bones then. And Magneto can easily control the metal and fix his claws. Which I have a feeling is what happens.

I donít know if you guys read the comics or not, but this is not the first time Wolverine has been stripped of the Adamantium. Magneto ripped it out of his body almost killing him. So what he takes, he can give back.

Really saw this coming a while ago. From what I can tell there has been very little interest in Command and Conquer since they screwed up C&C 4 so bad it practically killed the series. To make matters worse they make the game a F2P game - does anyone trust that EA wouldn't make it pay to win and nickel and dime players to death? I wouldn't take that bet for the world myself.

Yep. As usual EA approached it as business model first, game second and the results are predictable.

Canít agree more dude, just like they are doing to SWTOR they killed that game for me with all the BS monetizing of it. I was really looking forward to this game too, but go figure. Leave it to EA to fuck it up.

I find it ironic that in this day and agae this movie is being produced at all. No disrespect, but America aint that popular in the rest of the world anymore, and I doubt that even for americans patriotism means even a fraction of what it did anymore or that people even understand or care what true patriotism is.

As an outside observer American patriotism has been subverted to a point where it's now unrecognisable.

The only thing thatís subverted is outside asshole like yourself that come to our country and try to fucking change our way of life here. No, American Patriotism is alive and well thank you!!

This is an example of what Im talking about. (I sincerely hope Darks was joking)

The crap Iím referring to Black, is a Cross thatís been up on top on a hill for generations, now some smuck who has an issue with it comes here and complains and wants it removed. Thatís the shit that boils my blood to no end. If they donít like it, go back to the shit hole they crawled out of. This is just one instance of many other things like it.
