Iíve been trying to enjoy it, but Iím having all kinds of issues with it crashing now. Just got to the part where she gets captured and the damn game crashes every 10 or so mins. And yep, I do have all of the updates and drivers installed. Iím running an NVidia Ti660 GTX card. Which I know has issues with this game.

The really sad thing that pissed me off to no end was. I was the guy who made the mods for Mech Warrior 4 and Mech Warrior Mercenaries Coop.

I took this as a personal insult when they went Online only.

I lost total interest in this game long ago when they turned it into an online only game. Totally fucked the series up. No Coop missions, no Single player. These guys turned the game into a mini mart; all they care about is what they can make off the user. So I have zero Interest in this game.

The worst part is that Diablo 3 sold like 10m+ copies so it's not like they needed to court any specific gamer subset anyway, they certainly weren't hurting without console sales.

It may have sold that many copies, but there are defiantly not that many people sitting around playing it now. Compared to D2 this game has failed to hold its luster that kept many D2 players playing for several years.

I can't believe people keep giving the War Z devs money, what more do they need to do?

I donít understand this either, I donít see how anyone could possibly give this guy money. The first time I would have died and all of my items were removed, even the ones I paid for. That would have been it for me. Done and over!

In order for an MMO to compete in a region, they have to have servers in that region. No gamer wants to play any game with a ping time 5x higher than it should be. They just took themselves completely out of the Asia/Pacific market, they're done. For many MMOs this would be extremely damaging, from UO to WoW. However....Star Wars. Huge cultural phenomenon in the US, but in the Asian markets? Who knows, they might not have had many players to begin with.


Dude, the only Asians that will be playing this game are the Gold Farmers. Everyone else is fodder, EA just made it 10 times easier for them to exploit the system.

Did anyone else notice over on the Mod Shops review of Bioshock Infinity that they gave the game a score of 4/5 stars. But in the rating categories they gave it perfect 5s across the board. Some please explain to me where these guys learned to do math?

According to their score card, it should be a 5/5 I guess they make crap up when it comes to making a final verdict and donít follow their own scoring system. Weird!!!

I couldnt find the 4/5 rating, only the individual 5/5's and their 'Perfect' verdict?

LOL, I just checked, and they changed it. I posted a message about their score and someone must have saw that they made a mistake.

This is no real surprise. EA's attempts to make this a F2P game were entirely flawed. They didn't seem to understand that you make money with F2P by having people want to play the game. If you put massive restrictions in the way of playing right at the start, people are going to check it out for 5 minutes, get frustrated, and stop playing.

Well said,

This is what happened with me, I came I looked and EA said ďWe donít serve your kind hereĒ So I never looked back. Way too many restrictions. When they locked out my UI Bars and locked me out of most of the Ten million Credits I have. I said a hearty Fuck U to EA and never went back.

Iím sorry, but I have to laugh and shake my head when I read this kind of comments. So, 10 to 15 hours of game play is not worth 60 dollars. But many of the same people claiming that this game is not worth that price will go out and have gone out and spent just as much on a 5 hour game like COD.

How do you all justify that reasoning when this game is far superiour in all regards? Iím truly baffled at comments like this. Just because a game does not have MP does not make that game any less of a game especially when the game play and story are far better.

Wow, your ASSumptions are astounding. Why would you ASSume that I would make the statement I did if I previously went out and spent $60 on a 5-hour CoD game? Look up the definition of strawman. Your argument is ridiculous.

I'll have just as much fun in a year playing this game for $20 as you do now playing it for $60. Enjoy.

your comments tell me one thing about you, and that is you are a Cheap ASShole!!

Are you sure about that? A great many people play CoD for multiplayer, which gives them hundreds of hours play. I doubt that many people who are claiming this isn't worth the price bought the latest CoD just for single player.

Letís be totally honest here about COD. In all of the COD games released and the MP portion of the game. What is really different about each of those MP games? Truthfully I saw not a lot of difference except newer maps. Itís the same BS over and over. Kill me, kill you. Boring!!! So basically you got kids buying this game for newer weapons that in the end all do pretty much the same thing and some different maps to play on. Again, boring!

Checkpoint system combined with resurrection drives me nuts.
So what does that mean, checkpoint system? And why does it suck? By resurrection do you mean something like the old Vita chamber system? No way to turn it off?

I was going to wait for the price to come down but goddamit if I don't have a stinkin 4-day weekend coming up.

Truthfully, if you guys did not take advantage of all the pre Sales then you lost out. But you will not be disappointed in the game. Itís been an absolute blast. It was getting pretty late for me last night and because I had to go to work today, I did not want to stop playing it. It just pulls you in and keeps you wanting to play more. Just sitting here counting down the hours till I can get home and play some more.

Verno, I have not had any crashes related to Check points. Personally I have not had any of that happen to me. If you guys own an NVidia card you should update your drivers, new ones came out yesterday for this game.


BTW, I think you should be able to return, I remember finding a key and it told me that you can return to areas you had already visited. I did that since there was a chest I left behind that I found the key.

Ill just add this about the start of the game; It blew me away when youíre in the city walking around exploring and enjoying the setting. Then you come to a part in the game where you were not expecting what is about to happen and all hell breaks loose. That was a great opening.

I spent three hours playing the game last night. Absolutely love the game and the environments. The actions has been really good and the AI is fun to watch and tricky how they dodge you when youíre trying to attack them.

By far this is the best game out this year and in a long while. I almost took today off just to try and finish the game, but decided I want to take my time and enjoy this masterpiece.

It defiantly deserves many of those high rated scores itís been getting. 9.6 Without a doubt.

I really tried to like this game a lot. Love how it is and all but the Magic system is just obnoxious to try and learn and remember when in a sticky combat situation. Too damn many combos to try and recall. You end up only using a few that you like or remember.
