The Titan cancellation didn't cost Blizzard anything. The development is what cost Blizzard $50m+.

LOL, the day this article came out I said it cost them 100 million. I was half right. But that still a ton of money wasted.

This looks pretty neat but I've got a bunch of other crap to play and I don't hear any word of mouth on it.

I own this game, I played it for about 30 mins. I just have way to many other games right now to play that I cant commit any time to this one yet.

From what I played. it was a pretty nice game and looks good. But I did not like the zoom how its setup. and I saw no other way to change this.

You have two keys for zooming In and out. The wheelmouse when I tried to zoom in barely moved the zoom. I'm not sure if that's broken or what.

So, that Is something I was going to get on the forums and ask about. because its unacceptable to not be able to use the wheelmouse for zooming In and out.

The game play seemed simple. I played a skirmish. They gave me a set amount of units to start with and a small base station and a few carries I had to protect.

There was one odd thing I saw, and that was all of the units had a colored icon over top of the unit. I did not care for that look. I can understand if you are zoomed out so you can see the unit. but not when you are fully zoomed in. the icon should remove itself at a certain zoom in point.

The battles looks good and were fun to watch.

The Space station can build turrets and other ships. The one issue I had was I clicked one of the buttons to see what I does and it destroyed my station without prompting me first. That was bad. but I'm new to the game so lesson learned.

Like I said, I only got about 30 mins in, but the game does look promising. It was a disappointment that this game has no multiplayer though. I'm not sure if the devs plan to add it later or not.

Unfortunately the thing holding it back is the biggest part of the game. The combat is just completely basic and poorly balanced.

Yeah its kind of simple compared to say D:OS, but so far its fun.

The combat is okay, I've been enjoying the game a lot. Love the setting and all the places you explore.

so far, the game has been a lot of fun. Congrats the them on the game being successful. Imp sure we will see more add-ons for the game in the near future.

I thought gold was shared, gathering it first only seems to influence the level end score totals.

It is shared. and your right, it only matters for the tallies at the end.

LOL, well, there goes at least 100 Million dollars up in smoke.

I'm hoping they at least are thinking about a Star Craft MMO. No more hack and slashed for a while.

Watch and see if at least two more Add-ons don't come out for WOW now. gotta keep that milk coming in.

News Comments > New GeForce GPUs & Drivers
12. Re: New GeForce GTX 980 & 970 GPUs & Drivers Sep 19, 2014, 11:00 Darks
 
Anyone know if the GTX 770 is actually any better then the new GTX 970 card? I've looked over the stats, and yes the 970 does have a little better specs compared to the GTX 770. so, im wondering which card is actually better.

One other thing I did notice. does the newer cards handle power better?

The 770 has two 8 pronged plugs where the new 970 has gone back to the two 6 pronged plugs. so is this new card now more efficient with power?

I guess, we will have to see once its out.

The Witcher Wild Hunt isn't coming out until February 2015. But other than that, yeah, it's an embarrassment of riches this year.

The great thing about having limited time to play is that I can pick them all up in a year for way less I think I'm just going to grab The Evil Within (if reviews pan out) and Witcher 3 on release.

I've read/seen very little on Gauntlet, is it a full on modern remake?

It is a full remake, the game looks good. but there's a ongoing discussion about the games screen locking and being on a leash that's got many people upset. The discussion is, yes its a remake of the old game. but he problem is this isn't an arcade game anymore with 4 people standing over one screen.

So screen locking is a bit old fashion and very aggravating when you try to go off screen or to the side of the screen and you cant because other people are on the opposite end.

The other feature the devs for some odd reason did was make the game more about competitive mode. meaning, who gets to the gold first gets the gold first. If someone wants to be a dick and shoot the food when the warrior needs it badly. well you are now SOL.

People are worrying about griefing in the game, with the screen locking , a person could just be a dick and decide to stay on one end of the screen and not move now locking down the game because some may be pissed about something another person did In the game.

The Devs have said, they will monitor this and see how it goes. people are asking that they put an option in the game so those who want to play without the leashing can do so.

so this game is a bit of a chance if you don't care for the screen locking.

Ahh, Creston, you are always looking for something to pick about.

Yeah, sorry I'm not a mindless shill like you. I don't just eat whatever bullshit a publisher tries to feed you.

This is not an add-on. Its a full blown game. In fact the game is extensively longer then BL1 was.

Really? Based on what? Based on what Randy Pitchford has said? I'd wait until it comes out and people have played through before I'd make that statement.

Because BL1 was a pretty long game. 15 to 20 hours if you did all the main quest. longer if you did the side questing.

Exactly. Which just reinforces the idea that you probably should hold off on claims that this one is longer than BL1, because BL1 could easily go into 30-40 hours if you did all quests in your first playthrough.

But length aside, this is really no improvement over BL2. The low-grav mutator because it's on the moon thing is embarrassing enough to be touted as a feature, but it's still the same concept of four characters each with a single skill and a bunch of minor bonuses etc etc etc. It's Yet Again The Same Formula.

If people enjoy that, eh, more power to them. There must apparently have been plenty of people clamoring for "just more BL2." Selling them that for 60 bucks, though, is pretty shitty in my book.


Well, to be honest then did come out and say that this game was somewhere in-between the two games in length. So, to me that's a pretty long game.

I really enjoyed the two games, we played the hell out of them Coop. I will be playing this one Coop too with my friends.

The graphics do look like they got an upgrade. to me the colors especially do stand out more. As for game play, there are new weapons, lasers and cold type weapons. I do see where you are coming from expecting there to be more. but this is Borderlands, I'm not sure what else could be done to the game.

I'm personally looking forward to the story and how everything evolves this time around with Jack being the so called good guy turned bad guy. I really want to see how that evolves.

Maybe wait for a sale then Creston if your not that happy about the game.

I'm sure it will be. In the original you could have up to 5 or 6, right?

Yes, in the original you could have a party of up to 6 characters.

I'm liking the look of this video, it does look promising.

Based on the video and it's "Key Features", it looks to be an improvement over the first game. I have no problem paying more to get more, especially something like this...


I liked the first game because it brought back those memories of Eye of the Beholder, which I'm very fond of and made two mods for with the NWN Engine.

Not really happy about the price increase either. Over all the game was good, but I really despised the death of everything exploding into fiery sparks. I really think they could do a better job on this part of the game. Id rather see death animations for each type of creature. like bones exploding on the ground when killing a Skeleton and so forth.

Interesting, what Notch is basically saying is that, when the Minecraft EULA thing came out, people were dicks to him. Then he watched the Phil Fish video and saw how much they love being dicks to Phil Fish (who is, himself, a dick.)

So he sold his studio.


I get it, it's fair. Minecraft became bigger than Notch, and with that happening, it made Notch bigger than Notch feels Notch is. But getting $2.5 billion dollars won't change that. If Microsoft fucks things up, Notch will be blamed. If Notch makes some small shitty game he enjoys making but few enjoy playing (because it's the kind of small, shitty game he enjoyed making), people will call him an idiot on Twitter. That spotlight is on him for an extremely long time.

Cant blame him, Id take the money and run to. live a great life and do whatever you want without anyone to tell you anything different.

There was a news article about this a month or so ago. not something that's been hiding. Right now, its on steam for 24 dollars. How can you pass up that deal?

I bought it, looks like a fun thief type game that's even more fun. How can you not like puking in the water and making people sick lol! that was pretty funny.

Oh, that's not the worst of it. Since many people who played the game had cloud saves, they lost their entire campaign they had been working on. Straight up reply from the developer, sorry, but GFWL saves were not compatible with steams saves.

Ouch!! One guy said he had over 200 hours in his and its now gone.

I donít get or understand the removal on LAN, that one is confusing.
