SWTOR, D3, and up-comming GW2 all suffer this same problem - people in droves give good solid feedback on the problems, and they are ignored because the devs think they know better.

That might be because by and large the players have absolutely no clue what they are talking about with their "feedback", and the vast majority is far from anything an actual developer can work with.

Intrigued about that Odin project. A 3D game from them? Could it be an ARPG in Dredmor's universe?

Could just picture Dredmor and Grimrock having an illegitimate child with that idea...

Single player is just something you can play by yourself. You get that, right? Whether or not it's just a simulation of a game's multiplayer mode doesn't mean a damned thing.

Uh...no, unless we're using some bastardization of the terminology here.

I bought BFBC2 and BF3 for the single player content

Yousaidwhat

Furthering that, somehow I missed something in the translation in that they considered the bot matches in BF2 (and prior) to be a single-player experience of sorts... Wtf

Haven't really been playing pc games for all that long, have you?

How can you say that bots on multiplayer maps creates a single-player experience? Last I saw, single-player games generally have, well, purpose other than to create an offline version of the online component....

So yea, I guess I'm brand new to this new-aged PC gaming stuff Hahaha_no

Anyone have any decent ones to add that are on amazon?

Super MNC is a great, if challenging, 3rd-person MOBA-style shooter that could only be considered Pay-2-Win if people think the other characters are unbalanced (which, in my opinion, they aren't), beyond that, there's World of Tanks and then mostly the grindy F2P-MMOs where most things aren't cosmetic to buy....

I am wondering if you can do the missions, or if it is just sandbox....

As of right now, it's just sandbox and a very haphazardly concocted version of that.

There's a lot of work left to do to make it anything more than a "get vehicle, get hijacked, get killed, respawn, repeat".

It's not race baiting if it's a fact.

Not sure you understand what the word 'fact' means when you start applying it to a very subjective opinion like that.

Not quite the same as barging in with flashbangs and guns though is it? (militarized police force)

It really doesn't matter what 'hardware' they use, they still barged in based upon circumstantial evidence that could've easily had absolutely nothing to do with the parties involved.

I wonder if anyone has really ever thought "ALL RIGHT! ANOTHER MOVIE TIE IN GAME! I LOVE THOSE!"

Depends on the game, the demographic, and the style...there are a couple that are pretty decent, alas, most people here are too old and don't have kids to enjoy them themselves.

More often than not, it's about getting the product out the door in time to match the movie release. Quality is sacrificed in the name of a tie in/quick buck. And sadly, people keep buying them...

Considering the movie is out in like August and this is just now announced, and shipping "this summer"? Yeah, that'll end well...


That's the caveat though, when publishers are pitching a product to coincide with the release of another. Most often you would get the red flag to stay away from tie-ins like that, but to lump them all together isn't the right view.

Why does Ubisoft still makes games? No one wants them.


Speak for yourself junior, there's plenty in Ubi's library of games that are at the very least decent, and many of which that are great.

Compared to most flight simulators, this game is not very good. They would have been better off to focus on a few of the more popular planes and get the flight mechanics better than what they have now.

Last I heard, Warplanes wasn't meant to be a simulator outside of modeling realistic ballistics...

From what I've seen, the handling of the game seems to not target solely those using sticks and tries to incorporate keyboard and mouse in a similar manner.

nothing but a cheap ploy to boost ps1 subscriptions.. they been banking off this beta exploit for a while now... Big fan now, no longer caring.. gonna be hard to hook me back.

Someone as cynical as me is taken aback by your level of cynicism...albeit, based on your post history, stirring the pot is pretty much what you do best.

As for PS1 subscriptions, you are aware that the subscription isn't a forced requirement, right?

Unfortunately it seems every iteration of the yearly release seems to go down in terms of build quality. 2011 was nice, 2012 added new bugs without really adding features, and the initial set of forum posts makes 2013 sound almost entirely unplayable.

I do believe they usually give it a couple post-release patches, so I'll just wait for the new decks and inevitable 50 or 75% off sale and then grab it.

In the mean time 2012 is good enough since I use it as a single player time waster.

Not sure what bugs they are experiencing, but I haven't had a single one.

Not sure if it's just me or my taste in games lately, but finding it very MEH.

Pretty much everyone felt that way, and it was compounded with the then pre-patch combat mechanics with the inability to do simple things like dodge. Even post-patch with dodging, it still hasn't made combat any more fun or engaging.

Maybe they've picked this for a reason. To get some indication of what an average weekday might be like, otherwise they'd be doing in the evening and on the weekend.

That still doesn't make sense in the context of a stress test. Unless this was meant for non-American regions and/or for a look at low-impact hours.

I won't lie, I found the updated app to be pretty nice. Being able to watch content from the Xbox on the iPad or iPhone is a nice thing.

Of course, that means my Xbox is going to be staying on for longer periods of time.

Without overstating it, Tera is the best mmorpg I have played in 10 years of playing games including Wow(for 6 years), EQ2, AOC, WH, Rift, Aion, GW2 beta. The combat, especially the melee combat is fantastic, the graphics are incredible, animations are best genre has ever seen (both monsters and players), dungeons are very good. Poster who dismisses it as an endless grind is cynical and dead wrong. Even my wife loves the game, and she was skeptical after being burned by AOC, WH, Rift, etc. We have 2 lvl 40's and love it.

Just make sure you have beefy computer to enjoy it to its fullest. We bought 2 new computers just to play this game after we started playing it and loved it. There is your endorsement.

Trust me, the game is freaking awesome. Period.

The game *is* an endless grind though. Unless I missed something, somewhere, once you get to like level 10 you start slowing down and having to slog through the riff-raff of "Kill X" and "Fetch X" quests.

It is a nice looking and entertaining MMO to play in short bursts, but to tell someone that they are dead wrong and cynical for stating a bold-faced truth screams otherwise.
