Eh no loss for me, I pirate all Ubi games anyway, that's my policy. Until they remove fucking Uplay, they are never getting another dime from me.

So go ahead, castrate the game all you want.

We all have our justifications, for the things we do, but I wonder... Do you also have this policy for more invasive, in the way, DRM schemes, like Steam?

OMFG... Drop in MP... That's awesome... Though, Dungeon Siege 3 had that, and it was hated, so we'll see...

FC3 MP was cool, but being able to jump into same world is better... Though not being able to do 'solo' missions is unfortunate.

Bout time, looks like something I'd play.

Only pinball games I spent many many moons on was the original Amiga Pinball dreams and Sierra's 3d pinball games.

But... but... Epic Pinball...

Just tried with Dark Souls II... Seems to work fine, but I hate the controller, so it didn't last long.

The best description I have seen equates doing pure melee in DS2 to playing without a shield in DS1.

Maybe it's me, or the changes in the game... I would have to play some more DS1 to find out, but I very rarely bring out the shield in DS2... I'm almost always using a power stance (dual wield) build (as opposed to a 2h build, which generally relies on larger, slower, weapons that I don't enjoy).

I also go pure melee almost everywhere... I've never used a herb (which replenishes castings of spells), and even with a ton of attunement/slots, there just isn't many spell uses available, so I 'save them', then end up not using them.

Even my sorcerer is dual wield Blue Flame (a sword that can be used to cast spells).

Anyone get this shit to work?

Their steps involve installing another client (yay)... And 'clicking on defiance'... which isn't listed... Clicking on it on the store shows a Play link, that does nothing... Even tried with a new acct...

Edit: Still don't see it working in their Glyph launcher, but I re-installed the Defiance launcher to a non-protected folder... UAC related stuff has been around for how many years, and they still can't do this shit properly?

I vary rarely pick up DLC... But this'll likely be my first season pass purchase...

Steam says 183h so far, and I'm still finding new(ish) ways to enjoy it ; )

I'm kind of addicted to leveling, and trying out new builds (from the start), so I've barely put any time into NG+.

Nice to see Distant Worlds in the list. Despite its hefty price, it's easily the best 4x space game ever made and the devs are making a mistake pricing this game so high.

I don't disagree about the price, but it is kind of a contradictory statement ; )

If it's really the best, it's worth the price.

Nonetheless... A few sales from now, it could end up high on the list, assuming word of mouth is good.

I just want to point out... This is a beautiful example of what a thread should be like...

Lots of good points... Very little of that negative stuff I won't call out.

Thank you : )

How can your customers be satisfied if they're not there to watch it?

Most techie peeps have DVRs and a lot of their friends/family, but I would guess most people still don't.

PS4's price was arbitrarily raised $50 in Canada... So while I was considering it at some point, that's been held off for quite a while (now the Infamous bundle has to be sub $400).

So, Planetary Annihilation is finally down to a reasonable price... Though I'm not sure I'll pick it up at $30... Seems they did add some SP content though, which is what I would play.

HL3 concept art was leaked a couple years ago. It's funny seeing all the phony rage at Valve because you know you're going to buy it anyway.

Not within a year or two of launch ; )

Don't know anything about the game, but the trailer does nothing for me... Looks like he's just running around casting spells...

And that's how I feel about sci fi vs fantasy : )

MOBA has to be hitting critical mass soon, if not already.

I remember people claiming this ridiculously soon/early for MMO's...

Though, this time I agree, and it may be for the same reason people thought the same of MMO's ~8 years ago... Lack of interest. I just don't like the style/interface of MOBA's enough.

I didn't like Far Cry, or #2... But I thoroughly enjoyed #3, so I'm hopeful this will be fun enough.

I did get each for about $5/5/15 though, so #3 was obviously quite a good deal (much like RAGE, Tomb Raider, etc, that I got for $5 to $15 : ).

Can't say I'll get this sooner/nearer-launch, but it seems likely. Been feeling like a shooter lately though... Might re-install the Crysis games or some such.

Is it just me or is this trend getting fucking tiresome to anyone else? I AM SO FUCKING TIRED OF THIS ZOMBIE SHIT. Everything these days is about zombies. Holy shit, how unimaginative and boring can you be? I'd like to buy some originality, Alex.

Don't you mean Pat?

Pat sold vowels, and Alex bought questions...

Seriously, give zombies a break, they're overworked.

We're at a time where Indie's are popping all over the place, which is good, because being that there's so many, you'll see a lot of unique styles/twists/takes/etc... But it also means that we'll see a lot of rehash, because people will play a game, and really like it, and want to emulate, at least portions of it...

Plus, zombies are easy... They don't have to look great, they shamble, which means animations don't have to be AAA, they're bloody, which also makes low quality not as important... In short, they're perfect for Indie's. Not that Indie's are the only ones shoveling out zombie games.

Lastly, almost every game posted on here, and there are hundreds a month, people bitch about it being done before... Many commenters here are sick of platforming, 8-bit anything, zombies, shooters, military shooters, etc, etc, etc... Not everyone is going to like everything, or even close, but it's still better, as consumers, and gamers, to have all these options... You can ignore the massive list of zombie games, if you're sick of everything zombie, and still have a massive list of games to play. It's a good time to be a gamer : )

I really need to get back to the second and force myself through it... Thoroughly enjoyed the first, and didn't like where the second was going, but I'm sure there's lots to enjoy about it.
