Sounds like Elite Dangerous except you can land on planets and the mining system doesn't make you want to scream. I guess on the bright side this has 270 billion systems where you can explore by actually landing on a crappy looking planet and mining or building something on it. Instead of flying by a sun that looks like all the other suns.

News Comments > Wasteland 2 Visual Upgrade Coming

Its a sweet game Im on my 1st play through in California now. I plan on doing at least 2 more play throughs now that I know exactly how important some skills are and what is effective in combat. I also want to do another play through with all animal tamers and long ranged rangers. A group of melee with explosives would probably be pretty fun and pretty damn hard.

Well least he can admit it unlike many others *cough* Richard Garriott, Bill Roper. To be fair at least Peter Molyneux and Richard Garriott actually made some games that were good in the last 30 years.

A wealth of content = 3 playable monsters and 16 maps? For 60$? Sounds like a pretty crappy deal.

Yeah its stupid to trust in a company that is crowd funded and gives regular development updates with modules you can try for yourself! I like the old EA approach of showing cut scenes that have nothing to do with game play in fancy 150$ collector edition boxes. Companies that don't put out demo's of their product before a game is released etc etc. Talk about sheep.

There's a demo of the game? How odd! I've only heard there's a hangar module and little space arena to fly around in. I didn't realize the game was finished and there was a demo for it. Direct us to it will you.

Wry

You can't have a demo of a game when the game isn't done my god man. You can have demo's of parts of the game that are ready. For example space combat, and soon the FPS part of the game. Like I said this game shows more of the true game to people that are interested than most games published by companies like EA. But its cool Cutter, your probably some EA tool that wants to keep the money coming to the publisher instead of the game creators.

Lol, keep rationalizing away fanboy. Oh man, you and your ilk are just sad. Laughable too. Heh.
If saying that I like regular updates and being able to try parts of a game as its being developed makes me a fan boy then I guess I am.
I don't know how you can say that putting out content to be played before a game is released is a bad thing. Do you support the old school method of spending 60$ on a game that you know nothing about besides what the publisher feeds you in CGI cut scenes?

If a business is crooked enough to sell illegal keys I doubt they give a shit about giving a refund to a customer.

500 station cash = 5$ price of an airdrop = you paying for a server event that everyone can get in on for free. No thanks Ill pass all the way around on airdrops. They should just make airdrops a random server wide event and make $ selling base decorations and skins.

Funny people that haven't spent a dime on this game are more worried about it than people that have. I backed this game and I'm not worried about it at all. The developer communicates and releases content (or shows it off) pretty often. Arena commander is out, the first person shooter which looks pretty damn good is in the near future. So I'm pretty happy. So take your fist full of dollars that you "saved" shove them in your pie hole and stfu.

Big deal if it takes a few years. If I wanted to waste money on a crappy game rushed out the door I could pick one of 500 on Steam early access.

They might see small spikes in sales when they push out new content. I doubt they are going to ever see 30 million since by then you will have (Maybe) No Mans Sky and Star Citizen.

This game just doesn't have the content to get recommended by word of mouth. Anyone can pop on a Youtube channel and watch a lets play and see in a few episodes it gets old quick.

If your going to charge a monthly fee for an MMO your MMO better blow some minds. ESO didn't do this at all. It looked good but wasn't all that great. The spell system was just a total bomb in ESO nothing like the cool spell customization you could do in the other Elder Scrolls games. Also didn't care for the fact that they put you into you into a class system.

I guess Valve should've been working on Half-Life 3 instead of <insert random thing here> department.

What I'm getting out of this though is the term, as he said is dead, but Valve is still pushing their controller and Steam OS on different living room pc things.

Yes. No one else is really reading. The name is dead, not the product.

You took the words right out of my mouth. Origin PC CEO is stating he thinks the term "Steam Machine" is falling out of favor. Term being the key word.

400 billion solar systems it might as well be 4 because they are almost all the exact same give or take a space station which may or may not sell certain items. This game is just way to shallow atm.

Less than 1-mil between the three? I thought FFXIV was this mega-awesome MMOG that everyone adored? I never tried it, ever since GW2 came out I've had no real interest in the scene.

And yes, an MMOG can be successful and produce revenue without reaching WoW numbers, there are plenty of MMOGs that are successful in their own right.

I played through GW2, as much as I love the atmosphere (And hate how they blew up lions arch) I simply could not get around the lack of the dps/tank/healer trinity. Dungeon crawling and boss encounters are a mear shell compared to other MMOs. And I felt shackled when I wanted to create a character with stronger healing or damage absorbing aspects. Also the crafting system was just sooooo tedious.

I 100% agree with you on the trinity and dungeons. Which is a shame because I really liked many of the quest in this game (except for some of the end game quest). I haven't played GW2 in about 2 years though so maybe end games gotten a bit better.

Not surprising about Game of Thrones. Access to current episodes is still behind two pay walls, TV service and HBO, and the Blu-rays are $35+ a season. Maybe when they make HBO-GO standalone they'll see the piracy levels drop.

35$ for 10 hours of entertainment. Thats like 5 movies. Frozen (on blueray) 1 hour 40 min long is $25.00 Pretty weak excuse to pirate Game of Thrones.
