Wots with all the multiplayer bullshit lately?? Epic single player campaign if you boast X-Wing and MechWarrior veterans or get the fuck out! Those games (except XvT and later titles in the MW series) became popular in the first place because they had awesome SP campaigns first and foremost.

That's still $20.01 too much. Wake me up when the GOTY hits $9.99 on Steam.

What does install size have to do with game length? This is a megatexture game based on the unoptimized crappy id tech engine. Thus the size.
If you blow up the textures like that, you could also make a five minute game use 100GB. Install size and game length are completely unrelated.

The real annoying part for us Germans is the Steam requirement. It was no problem to import earlier games in the series (except for the minor risk of the package getting zapped by customs). It is only illegal to buy/sell these kinds of games with swastikas but ownership per se is actually legit.
I imported the US CE of Return to Castle Wolfenstein no problem and was able to play it here because this was back in the pre-Steam days when games just required a disk in the drive.
Nowadays we're fucked because of many PC games publishers choosing Steam as their DRM and Steam region-locking everything to death. Thanks, Valve & Bethesda. Not.
So, just like with New Order, I'm gonna pirate this Old Blood shit. They're leaving us no other choice.

I also don't get it. This season pass is $40 while EA sells their premium bullshit for $60. Yet Batman AK is called out for being a "scam". WTF? Compared to fucking EA you're getting a bargain here. Rejoice!

Yeah. Like Microsoft gives a shit about PC gaming. The first thing Microsoft will do once everyone has been force-migrated to Windows 10 is insert some buggy shit code into DirectX 12 to make their fucking Xbone look less inferior.

Nice... now let me know when this version hits $9.99.

^ this... could have been my exact words

I can't blame anyone on waiting on a deal, but know that when you do purchase it, you're getting one of the best games of 2014 (after Wolfenstein: The New Order).

Waiting for a sale does not have much to do with the quality of the game for me. I would pay full price for a DRM-free retail game with a high quality manual printed in color (YES - COLOR!!! insane... I know) and a nice HQ (color!) map etc.
But I'm not paying anywhere even near full price for merely renting -not owning- a purely digital product (SoM = Steamworks DRM).
I always try to keep my digital game purchases in the $4.99 to $9.99 region where the price -IMO- belongs for a rented digital product. Of course it requires some patience but I have a huge backlog and the games ain't goin' nowhere so who cares.

Got to wait for more info on JC3. No one knows right now, of course. Part 2 was definitely pretty consolish though. Floaty controls/camera and no free saving whenever you want. And it really had a very consolish look&feel overall in the menus, the game, everywhere. It wasn't the shittiest port ever though. Performance was good and one could play it reasonably well.
Depending on how good you are with a controller, I could definitely imagine that working better than KBM. The analogue sticks should come in very handy in some situations. I suck with a controller since I'm not a console gamer so I stuck to KBM but I would have to admit this is the type of game where a controller would probably be a better tool in the right (skilled) hands.

The pricing is retarded. Should be $10 for the whole X-Wing bundle and not $10 per game (sans discount).

I will admit the new cargo ships look really cool. I just can't understand the pricing on it. Every fucking ship that comes out costs $50-$350+. I mean, when the game releases, is it gonna be like Elite to the tenth power in terms of grinding to buy a ship with in-game money? If not, how would all of the people that spent real money not feel completely cheated? Is instant gratification worth that much?

Yep. That is one of the many, many, many balancing nightmares they have brought onto themselves. However, if past history with this project is any indication then they will piss off the old backers and make it only a mild grind.
They already got the money for the ships so what if someone is pissed off because it's relatively easy to get their $300 ship? Tough. The new customer experience and making *them* spend $300 is what counts more for CIG.

By the way, these "new" cargo ships are really just reskins or modified modular versions of the MISC Freelancer. In their infinite search for new sales opportunities, CIG have already begun mass-recycling assets and ship roles before the game has even been released.
Some people even consider the original pledge ships redundant and yesterday's news. You can't really blame them for thinking along those lines either because updates on some of the older ships are more than overdue. Instead all we get is ALL NEW SHIP BUY NOW BUY MORE IT'S BETTER THAN ANYTHING YOU HAVE EVER SEEN BUY BUY BUY.

It's really sad and ridiculous how this fucked up thing has turned into a complete monetization monstrosity instead of a, you know, space sim video game... which I think it was originally supposed to become some time back in 2012.

At the risk of being made fun of..
Do I get this game on that hunk of shit dust collecting box I call my PS4, or is this better for some reason on my PC?

What kinda shit question is that, bro? PC has always been better, is better and will always be better, forever after, amen. Join the master race now!

But like I said, Valve does deserve a decent cut for hosting, listing, and handling the business end.

Do they though? They are already selling the game via Steam and getting 30% of every sale. Many people might not even buy the game if it weren't for the (free) mods. The workshop is also great advertising for Valve and giving people an incentive to prefer Steam over other DD services. Does Valve really deserve more money on top of that? What for? And why now and why hasn't free hosting been an issue before?

But as I said, my main issue is BETHESDA'S cut. Which is many times higher than what they'd get licensing their tools and IP to a mainstream developer.

Yeah. Bethesda should not get another cut either just like Valve. They sell the game for over three years and it includes a "free" (not really since it's part of what you pay for) modkit for people to do as they please. Changing the rules mid-game and supporting Valve's greedy cash grab attempt to charge for mods is very lame indeed.

I can visually imagine the fat bloated red face of GabeN after a few glasses of wine and a similarly fat bloated red face of a Zenimax exec and how they dreamed up their new mod cash empire at some meeting at a convention. They probably thought of themselves as the greatest geniuses of all time as they repeatedly slapped their fat knees in laughter and choked on the wine.

An absolutely disgusting display of greed on all sides. I can't do much to boycott Valve as I have too many games on Steam unfortunately but I sure as hell won't buy the next Bethesda offering at anywhere near full price (if at all).

Apparently Valve pulled out.

If they pulled out, they're just pausing before they can go in deeper without the lube.

Yep... Fallout 4 will be $60 for the base game and $60 for the premium season pass that includes the mod kit. Then every mod must be put exclusively on sale on Steam for a minimum price of $4.99. No free Nexus no more. Remember. You heard it here first, folks.
