Could be worse it could be raining.....

Look on the bright side now we can get a Sims Star Wars with expansion packs every month for 19.99, or another quality MMO from Bioware set in a different period. My god I just threw up typing that last line.....

Well guess I'm back in my Star Wars hating/not caring period I went through after the whole Vong crap stories they published in the 90's.

Real nice 1-2 punch today, first this announcement which means I won't be playing/bothering with anymore Star Wars games and Adobe taking Photoshop sub only with the next version. call me crazy but I like to buy my software and use whenever I want, if it sits unrun it sits but paying a sub a month and not using it would be crazy. Maybe if I had a dog someone would shoot it also to go for the hat-trick.

It is worst, it is raining here We are doomed!

Take the new Bioshock infinity for example. The removed something like 2 games worth of levels from the game. I don't hear anyone bitching about that.

Sure, that game was good. Also the stuff they showed was on the same level as what was in game, it wasn't a drastic product quality difference.

I don't think the lawsuit will go anywhere but to say that it compares to Bioshock Infinite seems silly.

Really Verno? I didn't compare it, I used it as a reference to what's happens in the gaming industry as a whole. Learn to know the difference to a comparison and a reference.

"Also, Randy is in his office, pouting."

Putting 100% in game footage on the video is not a work in progress. Scumbags.

And that is where you would be wrong, it did show 100 percent game footage, but it also showed work in progress. and that will get them off in a heat beat. some people are so deluded, you guys would fall over backwards and pass out if you saw all the game footage that's been cut from games while in production.

I can't get the damn launcher to launch, let alone try to get into the game itself...

Its the queue problems that are causing the launcher to have issues. most of those have been resolved now. they are adding more server this morning. they had more people jumping on then they anticipated so the queue times got really large.


So some of you don't like the game, that fine. but remember this to those who are still wanting to check it out. its all personal preference. Its a free game, and those who are trying to make it out to be a pay to play are just being dumb.

First off how do you think this free to play game will survive and have added content if they are not making some kind of income?

I look at it like this, how many here paid for a monthly subscription on a MMO in the past or currently? then take that money and add it up for however many months you paid for that game.

So now you are playing the game and say you need a little more space, and spend 10 dollars for some Zen and buy a 24 slot bag. what is the difference here compared to other MMOs that charge you monthly?

Funny, how one guy here compares this to trying to be like GW2. sorry, but this game is nothing like it especially the combat. in fact the combat in this game is a hell of a lot more fun. Also why is it that no one here brought up the fact that GW2 does the exact same thing that this game is when it comes to buying items? If you need extra space GW2 also charges you for bags too. Crafting in NWO has bags that can be made. So there's no difference.

The game is mediocre at best.

It's only saving grace, and the only real reason to play the game, "The Foundry" isn't even implemented yet.

For those who haven't read a damn thing about the game, "The Foundry" is an editing tool that will allow DM's to create their own dungeons and story's for other people to play through.

That is the only thing I can see giving this game any longevity and it's not even ready yet.


You need to crawl out from under your rock, the foundry has been working for the past few betas. and mediocre at best? okay, you defiantly need to crawl out from under that rock you've been hiding under.

it doesn't seem to matter what game we're talking about on blues, someone has the blues about it. Every. Single. Game.
Can you show me one game that every single person loves?
Not on Blues in general I mean.

I live for a good RTS game, I loved Act of War, that was a really good game. Many people screamed to these guys to please make a patch to fix the Win 7 x64 issues. That fell on deft ears.


RUSE was a lot of fun, was something complete different from most RTS games. Had a lot of fun with this game.

So, one of my favorite developers comes around and make EE. I though hey, awesome a modern day RTS game. But, we were left with no base building, yes I know itís not but that does not mean it makes it better. So they implement a buy what you think you will need system. Then make you level up to try and get better units. And on top of that use a supply system that to me is a little flaky because supplies drain incredibly fast. A little too fast. You end up with worrying about supplies rather than playing a good strategy game. I hat micromanaged games, and having supplies in this game is what you get.

Many of my friends who also bought his found it to be too hindered by many of those aspects. Yes, some people live for this type of system. Iím not one of them.

Well, I haven't bought any EA games in a while, but not specifically because of Origin. Although, it is a negative in the consideration process. I wanted SimCity to be good despite the online stupidity. It wasn't, and I haven't purchased it.

I really wanted to try Syndicate, but after the reviews and requiring origin, I couldn't be bothered.


you know that is or was on GMG for 4 dollars with the voucher code.

Yep still is. GMG20-GGN5D-FC3NA

A nice article from some stock brokers that pretty much share my view on EA. They're heading for extinction if nothing is done soon.

That, and the fact that no one likes to use Origin to play their games through. If they get rid of Origin, go back to using steam and stop being douche bags, and then they might save themselves. But otherwise their done. I donít know about the rest of you, but Iíve been boycotting them since they boycotted steam. I havenít bought one of their games since.

I watched the video of this last night. I saw their new game pop up on steam and thought oh, and new RPG I missed. Then I saw that lame ass video and then saw the comments about buying the game for 39.99 and then pay 15 dollars a month to play it. I went, screw that shit, NWO just came out, why I would pay for this shit when NWO is free and looks way better.

Same as the original, I love this developer; they made RUSE and Act of War which in my RTS book are some of the best RTS games out there, but this one. bad camera angles and you feel like youíre playing with a bunch of micro miniature units. Donít care for that feel at all. Plus thereís no base building. Supplies run to way to fast. You canít build new FOBs to try and speed up the Conquering process; you have to run back and forth to the original ones you placed. The list goes on and on.

Hey Aliens? Star Trek is trying hard to make you look better:

This is graphics fail - no screenshot can make your ears bleed like Chris Pine's voice acting does


Looks like Spock found a new and interesting way to mind meld.

hmm, maybe someone should play the game before jumping to conclusions about the clipping. the game has a non-clip to it so the players pas through each other so you donít have issues with the AI standing in your way of a door blocking your progress.

But I will say that at least ACMs coop worked on release day, unlike this game where itís completely broken.

For anyone who's played the original DI, was co-op ever fixed? I do remember there being a big issue where people weren't able to connect to each other or if they did, sometimes they would get booted out a few minutes after connecting.

At the time, it was very annoying to not be able to play with friends and I pretty much stopped playing at that point. I also don't remember getting any new updates for the original DI so I'm not sure if that was ever fixed. There were a lot of threads about this issue with no replies from the developer. It's a shame because the game seemed like it was fun but just the general bugginess of the game stopped me from playing after a while.

Yes, Coop was fixed, played all the way thru it with a friend. Been playing this one too. I like many of the new fixes and changes to the UI. It feels a lot smoother now. And you can fricking wheel mouse to change weapons now. Game looks great too. and plays the same as before. But the guns now feel like they have more hitting power. Took down a Thug with no problem at all with an AK.

If it's not FO wtf knows because it sure as shit isn't TES.

Why would they do another Fallout or Oblivion game when the MMO is coming out soon? It would not make any sense for them to do that because it would only diminish their efforts to hype up the MMO.

I would expect them to be working on a new IP. I would love to see them make a Terminator game with the Skyrim Engine. That would be killer to have a Hugh open world with Terminators running around all over and trying to survive.

IT'S A VIDEO GAME for cryin' out loud!!! The game forces you to kill people too in order to progress through the game, but that's okay? Let's put things into perspective here you morons, and get a life!!!


Well, on one hand, I could see some of the "dumbed down" people arguing that they shouldn't have to make this choice and should be able to just mow their way into Columbia.

But that ruins all the story, all the prologue, goes against anything your character would do because at this point he isn't expecting violence and isn't the one that starts the violence, and your character isn't happy about the baptism, either.

Plus, who cares? People can dunk me in the water, that doesn't mean anything about me has changed (which may be a theme...)



Maybe the issue is that the guy in the story is too stupid to understand that not every game is a role playing game. In some games you play a role. In some games you control one aspect of an already defined character on an already defined path. You aren't Booker DeWitte, you're someone looking through Booker DeWitte's eyes.

While, I agree choice would have been nice. But on the other hand this guy is a total looser at the same time. He complains about a moral choice about being baptized, but he was perfectly willing to run around Columbia killing people.

Now someone explain to me how thereís much of a difference in that? in fact, I would argue that itís even more damaging as a Christian to kill then to be baptized. At least being baptized you are being washed of your sins. Unlike killing someone.

Itís another when a game is released and its utter shit and almost beyond playability. That is Dark Souls, Utter shit.

This is the part of the haters' argument I just don't understand. I had zero issues with this game other than the crappy resolution, which was fixed by a user mod. Once the mod was in place the game looked great and ran great. I put 150 hours into this game and it never crashed on me once. I can't think of any real glitches during gameplay either. It just worked fine. How is it that other people had such a completely opposite experience?

Mods may have fixed issues with this game, but mods should never, ever be a final solution that makes the game better.
