The timing is close enough that it may be entirely unrelated, but thank you Grimrock : )

So on the one side, Yay... On the other, it's such an early (almost teaser) announcement, that the trailer sucks (as in, lack of info), but what little bits we see, I could see this becoming exciting ; )

Yup, how many people have been moaning for a Titan Quest 3? And the closest thing we're ever gonna get only had 12k backers.

The people that were really 'moaning' for a TQ3 backed Grim Dawn a year before KS suddenly got popular...

Also, even 12k would not be anything to scoff at...

Someone on GAF said they wanted $150k minimum for the Titan Quest IP at "auction" and no one wanted to pay that much

As much as I enjoyed various aspects of TQ.. I can't think of any of it's IP not being public domain (as in, basic mythology)... Though, I do realize that names sell, so perhaps that's the major factor...

I really need to give this a go, but shit, I just bought Tropico 4, and Anno 2070 AND Sleeping Dogs.

I need help...

Translation: someone more sucessful then us made a game we dont like so we are going to cry about it.

Did you even read the interview or just comment snipe the headline? His points are well founded and he's not really digging on Call of Duty itself so much as he's talking about how players want everything to be like it since its made everything effortless.

Can you really blame someone for calling out on a sensationalist headline? : )

Also, I read the whole thing, and I don't think that bold statement is backed up very well... He would probably fit in really well at Blues, where jaded elderly curmudgeons is where it's at : )

In the interests of full disclosure, I might feel the same way if I tried CoD(, or Battlefield, or any of the newer shooters that might be relevant to the argument), as I'm proud of my elite UT/etc skills. : )

Excessive-UT FTW!

Perhaps it's just me.. But stretch goals, especially as lofty as 6 times the original ask, is just absurd, when you haven't yet made a dent into the original ask.

Also... 700k to fund it, but MORE than double that, just to hand off a second copy to everyone... That 'math' is just insulting. Even if every backer doubled their donation, for, you know... A second copy, it wouldn't be enough...

Anyhow... G'luck ; )

I notice a lot of people still use the term "CD Key" when games haven't been on CDs in a long time. Even when DVDs replaced CDs, people continued to call them "CD Keys."

A DVD is a CD : )

For those of you thinking of playing this, I highly recommend starting on hardcore. When your hardcore char dies, he gets put into the non-hardcore league.

This adds quite a bit of frisson to the experience of playing it, especially for the first time in my opinion.


That... is a really interesting take on what hardcore means...

I imagine some will hate it, but in some ways, it gives the benefit of both.

Heres a fucking idea, get rid of the Auction House that no one asked for and make better item drops.

Bam, fixed your fucking game Blizzard. Send my check in the mail.

Dipshits.

Are you new here, or to gaming in general?

As much as the AH is arguably a failure, it is somethings hundreds of thousands (I counted and verified identities) of gamers asked, begged, and pleaded for...

Personally, I vend everything I don't need, because I don't want to waste time 'playing the AH', so you can imagine how much less likely it would have been for me to use the old, much-more-effort-required system of spamming 'trade chat' or the like.

It's a weird move to sell something you call a season pass but then exclude certain things. But they did explain the dlc included by the pass from the beginning so it is what it is.


So not only are devs cutting content from games to sell as DLC, they are cutting content from DLC to sell as more DLC?

heh... well put... : )

Re: Apple refunds...

On the one hand, I feel bad for the parents... On the other, just disable the functionality... iOS let's you disable in app purchasing, and Android lets you assign a PIN to allow purchases...

Though as the 'kids' get older, the more likely they'll know the pin, in which case, hopefully you can remove CC information from the accounts.

Shouldn`t that read.... Randy "Ego-Maniac" Pitchford? Or Randy "Stupid is as Stupid does" Pitchford? Both work. ;p


"No one likes to be called a liar, especially if their intent was pure and they always spoke the truth when they spoke it."

He's PURE! And he speaks the truth when he speaks it (whatever the fuck that means).


You really don't know what that means?

Let's use Blizzard as an example... A Blizzard 'blue' says 'we would like to have feature YYY'... Feature YYY never happens... Fan(atic)s say 'Liars!!! You promised us feature YYY!!!'...

I'll be waiting for the reviews. I've finally made the decision to only play the cream of the crop when it comes to games. Too much other shit to do than waste my time on shit.

This sentiment is what I find 'wrong with the world'...

If something is not 'the cream or that crop', it is 'shit'...

Should be fun, I too had to get past the "it's not Far Cry" mental barrier but once I did I enjoyed Crysis 2 for what it was, a game equivalent of a Jason Statham movie.

DangerDog, was that final code?

I never understood all the hate for aliens in Crysis... Though I imagine this is part of it, and the fact I didn't play far cry helps my lack of understanding...

As for the 6h campaign length, I'll wait for some real numbers... Almost every shooter in the last decade has had the same complaint, and the times listed are always somewhere between 'normal' and speed runs...

For some 'actual' values, Crysis was about 10.3h (Warhead at 5.5h), and Crysis 2 was about 8.75h, so assuming 6h is off by the usual amount, it may be just slightly shorter than the previous...

Values taken from howlongtobeat.com ; )

Announcement to tell people that yep, people are preordering the game so you should too. I always hate these things, they seem like such a waste of time.

And yet, it works, and the sheep lap it up...

Just like every second game is a game of the year, etc...

So..gambling basically? Weird.

If you like ALL their other games, is it?

It's hard to say because we don't know if this game is like all their other games

Let's go back to a time before Blizzard garnered tons of hatred...

If they had pulled something like this, they would have made millions of sales...

And personally, I think that, the smaller the studio, the more likely their games will have similar feel/humor/etc... Even across genre's. As an example, if this were the Trine developers (I also liked Shadowgrounds)... I might throw money at them sight unseen...
