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.

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.

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!

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.
