Same here, I bought it immediately after watching the video and about fell out of my chair. I canít believe I had not seen or heard of this game before this morning email from GOG.

Pre-Ordered!!

Wow, the Walking Dead series deserves SOOOO much better than this! UUgggh...

Man, I couldnít agree more. I saw the game play and though oh my god how fucking stupid and bad. I want a full on action game and all they are giving us is some lame ass point and click and interact bullshit.

Game is complete fail, I wonít be wasting my money on this nor would I even pirate it.

News Comments > Ubisoft's DRM Stance Softening?
2. Re: Ubisoft's DRM Stance Softening? Mar 23, 2012, 11:10 Darks
 
Iím hoping they do back off with their draconian DRM. It drives one mad when you see a game I bought from steam Riddick and it requires TAGES to still be install with limited installs. This game has been out for over two years now and I still have not installed it because of this crap. I still load up my cracked version of the game when I play it just to avoid this DRM crap. Another Game would be Anno 2040 that is on steam and has only a three install limit. Why? When itís on steam does a game like this require install limits? Uggh!! So needless to say, I did not buy it when it was on sale.

Ubi just doesnít get it, now they have been impacted by sales and many complaints by customers about how impairing their DRM is and the issues it causes. Hopefully they are going to back off on their DRM because it serves no purpose whatís so ever in stopping piracy it only impacts those of us that bought their games.

Meh, I'm still just trying to get through this game but I get so bored I just have to stop. Bad day one purchase, sigh. And I effing knew it. If this is the model for their MMO they may as well pull the plug on it now.

This.

I tried to get through the demo and it was horrid, so boring. It was such a Daggerdale ripoff that I thought I loaded the wrong game by mistake. The beginning is nearly identical to Daggerdale. I wasted $60 on this piece of shit. At best this game is worth maybe $15. Yet people go on and on about how fabulous this game is.

Well, Iím sorry but I will have to dispute you about this being a direct rip-off from Daggerdale. I have played Daggerdale several times through with different characters and not once while playing this game did I ever think or feel that there were any similarities at all.

Amalur may not be the best game out there, but itís far from being shit too. The game is not half as bad as some of you say or think it is.

Where's my damned Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition? :[

While that was a good game, there was far too much reading and not enough fighting in that game. I remember going through so much dialog that I thought it would never end. The combat was great though when you did have it. I imagine that if this ED they are converting does well that we can expect more from them.

Iím hoping these guys preserver the Coop that BG had. it will be interesting to see how this turns out.

Sure, but Krowen wants you to believe that Blizz is making D3 an online only game because the game itself should only be MP (which is a pile of crap).

Well to be fair to him there's some truth to that (anti-cheat in particular) but there's also many ways it doesn't make sense. It's more accurate to say that it's to both make money and protect the game. It doesn't really matter which was stronger in their minds, the end result is the same.

I think if you give the beta a chance then you might change your mind but I totally get it if you want to skip the game. I was really frustrated with how they handled connection interruptions early in the beta but there have been some improvements in fault tolerance for the odd blips. There will be many other great games to play, D3 is far from the only big one being released this year.

I can tell you all right now why its has the persistant online connection. this game is all driven by that online market where you can spend money and sell items. They are doing it to keep people from duping items and making a killing off them. This was a huge issue on D2. Blame all those dupers and spammers for this. Blizz is only acting accordingly to those past problems.

Well one thing to point out the D3 beta isn't over yet. And that doesn't usually end until a month or a few weeks beforehand. The current beta is 0.8.0.8815, which could easily be another 2-4 months of development time or 6mo at this rate.

This is a quote from Jay Wilson on the games release date.

When asked how close they were to announcing the release date on a scale from 1 to 10, Blizzard responded "9". Further tweets from Jay Wilson have revealed that the release date is set, he just can't tell us yet.

To me, on that scale that means no more than 8 weeks at best.

Nvidia GTX 680 coming March 23rd, and with the latest drivers out today, supporting D3, I think we can assume 2-6 weeks from then. Intel IVY bridge CPU's will lift NDA some time early April (2nd week).

good times.

Blues, Why donít you start a contest and have people try to pick the release date. You could have a giveaway of a game or something for the winner. Maybe even a copy of the Diablo 3 game. It could be a lot of fun. My pick is April 23rd.

So they have gone F2P?

Hope that works out for them.
If I remember right, they made more money off their sales on GoG than they did off of steam.

You remember so wrong it's not even funny.

- 200K Steam sales
- 40K GOG sales
- 10K everyone else sales

Source: PC Gamer


Steam takes a large chunk of each sale so sales on their own service are significantly more valuable comparably. I'd be more interested in seeing current figures after the several sales promotions they did (3-4 on GOG vs 1-2 on steam).

Didnít you see the other day, Valve posted up that the company is worth over 3 Billion? Damn straight Valve is making a killing from developers selling their games. This is why EA is doing what they are.

A friends trial offer, so soon after release? This game WILL go F2P within 6 months, if this keeps up. Then you can play your WoW with glow sticks for free, each month.

They are desperate to get new people to play the game, thatís why they are offering that.

Not me, I quit 24 days after it was released. They are trying to make the game better, but it might be a little too late for some of this stuff. All these things should have been in the game from the start. No excuse for them not being there.

93 vs 2.2, thats quite a difference.

Edit:
I popped the disc in, sat back and took some Viagra. Next thing I know there are two dudes getting it on. That's right, ONLY TWO?!?! Anything less than three dudes is just boring. .

Dosn't sound like they are playing ME 3.

I have to agree, I just scanned through all the user reviews and I have to say it was pretty pathetic to read. It is very apparent that none of them even played the game. It sounded to me more like a hate fest against Bioware/EA then a review for the game.

Iím even willing to bet that most of them have a pirated copy of the game. Again metacritic is a failed service and should never be taken seriously when deciding if a game is good or not.

wow the user reviews are hammering the game at metacritic, but yea it is mostly trolls doing the zero scores.

I never buy into metacritic or reviews by fanboys. To me it has always been about personal preference. Either you will like a game or you wonít. Reviews are only to gage the game and thatís about as far as I go with reviews.

How about just maybe the game really does kick ass and you just canít accept it for what it is. A great game and a great closer on the trilogy. Hmmm!

BioWare hasn't made an overall great game since BG2. And, no, I do not define cutscenes and NPC romance as a "game."

I donít care for all the stupid romance either, but the cut scenes are a part of telling the story. I personally like this version of ME better then the two priors. I have been having a lot of fun with it. Plus thereís Coop too. Thatís just an added bonus.

As Verno said, I donít follow how there will even be an Earth left by the time you convince others to fight and return to the Earth. There really shouldnít be anything left by the time you return.

And not shit games which aren't even worth pirating...

The PC version may be out there but it is not cracked. Again, these lame news sites are doing what they always do by over stating things and trying to make it out worst then it usually is.

Yes, the Xbox version is out there and has been for a while now. But the PC version has the date timer on it. So it canít be cracked until the 6th.

Are you kidding me? Never, ever buy anything from Game fly, those guys are Crooks and thatís putting it nicely. They absolutely have the worst Customer support I have ever seen. Just go and read the comments on their site about how terrible they are. I in all my life never saw anything or read anything so horribly bad about one company and how uncaring and utterly horrid they are towards their customers.

Never sing up for their free trials offer. Itís a trap!! They will charge you 20 dollars for signing up and good luck trying to get a hold of anyone and getting your 20 dollars back.

I hate D2D for selling off to these assholes. My games there are now held hostage and Iím unable to get them when I try logging in it keep telling me that my account has been cancelled. Thanks a lot File Planet!!!

And yes, I have tried for weeks to get someone, anyone from Game fly to help me, but I have not heard a word from anyone.

Avoid Game Fly, itís a plaque that you donít not want or the head aches that go with their service.
