Anyone now if there's a way to upgrade Far Cry 3 to Deluxe or buy extra dlc ? A friend is worried he won't be able to play Coop with us, if he can't upgrade. The amazon deal for $7.49, is a steal if you don't already have it.

Buy the regular Steam edition on Amazon for $7.49 and then buy the Far Cry3 Deluxe Bundle DLC from Steam for $4.99. I just grabbed the two, so it works!

They scrapped it beacuse it sucked, or because they thought it wouldnt bring in money or gamers or whatever, not because WoW is still alive and well....

Not living up to Bliz standards would be a good reason to scrap it. However, there is nothing on the horizon to compete with WoW. So, I think my point is valid to keep milking WoW. Gives them all the more time to polish, scrap, re-work, or <sub your term> Titan until WoW dies off.

If they were hot to publish Titan, they would add more resources to the team, not take away from it.

I see it differently. Aside from gamer's wanting the next Blizzard MMO to come out, why would Blizzard release it now? WoW still has ~ 9 million subscriptions world wide. It's one of the few MMOs that is still profitable as a subscription model. Everyone else is doing microtransactions.

It was said when EQ2 came out - one of the biggest deterrents for EQ2 was EQ1 was still wildly popular and was still releasing content updates. So, EQ2 suffered. Ok, so EQ2 had some launch issues, but dig back through some old reviews for it and this comes up quite a few times. It was also said when D&D Online released that it came out a few years prior ala EQ, which at the time was a much better game.

Another example? UO2 - why this was never released amazes me. Even more so considering UO is still around. But, at the time UO2 was shelved partially because UO was still popular. I'm not sure the concept for UO2 fit the UO world, but there was helluva good marketing in the concept pitch. Still gets me stoked seeing it:

It will never happen, but if we want to help Blizzard put more emphasis on Titan - stop playing WoW and I'll bet Titan fires fast.

GMG totally owns Steam on the Infinite presales. I was going to hold off, until GMG threw in everything! Pick your bundle ( I went with Bio I and Mafia II), XCom, $15 GMG credit, and Infinite for $59.99. Sold!!!

Meh, this is Ultima. Seasonal weather should be close to NPC schedules and non-linear questing in terms of core game. This is in, right? Pets, eh, not so much...

A kickstarter for a F2P game - pay now so everyone can play a social game for free later?

Lord British, I hope you have something better up your sleeve than this!

WTF is that at 0:20 in the launch video? Nobody wants FF in Wizardry - or, rather I hope they don't! Way to run Wizardry into the ground...

There have been over 20 Japanese Wizardry games made.

Can't tell if this is good or bad? Were any of them any good?

Am I to understand that we are judging the entire work by the intro movie? Granted, I wish they had beefed this up with today's specs. But, what were you expecting, Disney CGI?

Gameplay/lore is what sold this game then and should do so again. If enough people buy this, maybe we will finally get a Baldur's 3 or at least a similar game engine. Go f'ing buy it!

I'm sure Ray and Greg made out very well in the transaction to EA. Sadly, BioWare is surely doomed now. Well, maybe if Ray and Greg are moving on to start a new company we can finally get the new shit!

Appearance is fine to me. Content and gameplay sound weak from what I've read. I'm an RPG junkie, but no purchase for me until I see some reviews first.

Wait, the "Assassin's Creed Revelations Season Pass" from gamestop/impulse is $20 for a 30% discount off of DLC for it?!?! Am I reading that right?

Sometimes I wonder what the suits are smoking? Is anyone really going to pay $20 for 30% off?

U3 was a good game in it's day. Unfortunately, it hasn't aged well and there are better options today. It's better left to nostalgia.

News Comments > Bethesda Sues Mojang Over Scrolls TM
56. Re: Bethesda Sues Mojang Over Scrolls TM Aug 7, 2011, 06:49 Gymper
 
The suits have it all wrong. It's "Elder Scrolls" that drives the brand for Bethesda, not just the word "Scrolls". If Mojang (or anyone else) used "Elder Scrolls" I could see Bethesda's point. The only way I could see Bethesda coming close would be if the font and typeset Mojang used for "Scrolls" copied the same Bethesda uses. Then, maybe, but it's a strectch.

As it stands, this makes no more sense than EA sueing over the word "Dragon" for "Dragon Age" or Square Enix owing the word "Dungeon" in "Dungeon Siege".

Lawyers help fuel this by continuing to support frivilous cases like these...

Sorry if this has been asked - long thread. But, why not just have two auction houses and two game modes? One for the egomaniacs that want to put their hard cash into being uber. And, another for the hardcore players who just want to keep everything in game?

Seems simple enough, maybe both sides can have what they want.

Are they planning to have different playable character races? Seems silly to me not to, since the Star Wars Universe is so diverse. The trailer showed only Human and Sith.

Got news for you - I won't pay $60 now. I'm happy to wait a few weeks until the price drops or when they go on sale.

Currently, I am enjoying my $14.99 copy of Dungeon Siege III on the XBox. I can see why people complained about it, but I'm satisfied for the price I paid.
