Oh, bummer! I read the title and thought that Giant Aliens were being patched in, that sounded cooler than the actual patch notes....

Yeah, that's what I thought, "Giant Aliens" were being put in the game and thought that would be pretty cool.

As for Randy Pitchford being a prick, I wouldn't go that far, but it is pretty amazing that the studio that could release the game considered by many to be game of the year, Borderlands 2, could also release A:CM.

You have a point, but you also confirm my feelings. I paid for the game+the season pass. Being a huge Aliens fan, and the fact Gearbox put out a couple of solid games, and let's not even speak of the plethora of interviews with that fuckin twit assuring us all how the franchise was in good hands, being carefully crafted with love, as he and his team were massive fans.

Now you can say Sempai, it's you're own damn fault for pre-ordering it and giving them your money in the first place! You'd be right. I put my trust in him and his company, and this is why i hope that blowhard gets hit by a fucking bus(not really) for selling me a steamy turd in a box(scam) and has gotten away with it to boot.

3.8gb patch? What a joke our hobby has become.
These people are crooks. Randy Pitchford is nothing more than a used car salesman. Dirty prick.

The patch reduces map sizes by 90%, forces the player to always be online placing you in maps next to your friends, and lets you share resources with them. Because 1000s of people wanted to play across regions, trade, and communicate and they love the Always-Connected functionality. Unfortunately, the patch broke the AI so that once your army reaches 200 units, only 10% will actually move to attack the enemy. Also, only about 1 in 10 could actually log in to the servers to play.

Oh, wait, that didn't happen b/c GPG WASN'T bought by EA.

I have to say. i chuckled.

Too little too late, also i much rather them patch SC1

Agreed, Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance is the superior game. It approaches the same atmosphere of Total Annihilation's slowly evolving battle-lines and skirmish points especially when you slow it down and remove nukes/game-enders in the options. However the UI and waypointing system are still light-years ahead of anything else, including TA.

But what do you think still needs fixing in SC1? There are plenty of mods and maps and the base game runs very well, no anecdotal problems on a few systems, in fact the opposite!

Agreed, but i would say the AI pathing is horrendous.

It needs another month (or more) of work... but, I guess they must push it through before the series airs.

I actually prefer 3rd person in my mmo's, and if done right 3rd person is great for most shooty games.

Where they lost me was at the 360/ps3 cross platform garbage, which means the PC will most assuredly be yet another lovely port from 8yr old hardware with serious memory/everything limitations.

Ea should be sued into the ground. For the love of God! there surely must be some firm out there with a set of balls who will sue these liars.

It's beyond time for corporations like EA, who punish the very people who support them to simply go the way of the Dodo.

Such arrogance, such ignorance.

And if you purchased this broken scam of a product from these douche bags, you are part of the problem.

As of 10am here, it's now out on Origin at $9.99.

As for how many hours, i'd like to know as well, but since EA seems to be doing their damnedest to keep this thing a secret(not one review on metacritic)no one really knows yet.

Sure wish they'd allow me to move that damned camera out a little..

Adjustable camera in an RTS? That's so 2004 on! How dare you expect Blizzard to innovate rather than rehash the same 10 year+ old starcraft with a new subtag line? Heresy!

Or pulling the camera out in multiplayer gives you a huge advantage, but hey why let balance get in the way of your bashing.

I think most of us understand the camera is locked due to multiplayer balance. What you, and they don't seem to grasp is giving the player the option to move the gdamned camera in single player, coop, and non-ranked games. It's called giving the players choice, which corporations like Blizzard/Activision & EA(SimCity)seem to have completely thrown out the window.

When i watch replays from HDStarcraft and see how they allow you to watch the game from a sane FoV, it's very enjoyable, and it makes me wonder why i can't play the actual fucking game in the same manner.

But let's keep defending bad design choices(no choice)in the name of "balance" for Asian competition i as a paying customer could give two shits about.

News Comments > Dead Space 4 Cancelled?

I prefer Steam, but i agree.
Origin is a pain for me, and all these publishers trying to create their own portals is frustrating and has become a burden for legitimate customers, but by no means am i a lover of Steam.

For one their customer service is useless, in ever way shape and form, and there's no excuse for it with the cash Valve rakes in. And frankly i don't enjoy it running on my pc 24/7 in order for me to play games in a timely manner. But you can play offline Sempai!..Yeah, that's a real fuckin option isn't it..

Honestly..i miss the days when i could buy my games and just play them without being forced to be in some fucking DRM club. Steam included.

A union isn't the answer. A union will get you what Hollywood has - contract workers rather than employees. That's even worse than what we have now.

EA isn't as much of a problem as they were, anyway. They do far less buying and razing awesome studios these days. They don't have the buying power, but I think they've learned that lesson. A bit.
The issue now is more just a function of no one understanding what to do about how much it costs to make a game with cutting edge graphics. Most studios decided the way to handle that is by reducing single player to 6-7 hours.

It isn't just games dealing with this, either. Look at Hollywood now. The most expensive movies of all time are the ones heaviest with CGI - movies like Oz Great and Powerful which is 100% greenscreened cost over $200MM. Nuts. And then the artists doing those effects get laid off and the studios get closed weeks after winning awards.
Don't know the answer. Industry leading computer visuals are just extremely expensive...

Agreed.

When the studio for Life of Pi gets shuttered the day after winning an Oscar, there's something wrong with your business model.
As an adult gamer who becomes giddy as a school girl on a Monday night waiting for that amazing game to unlock, I fear for the folks who are responsible for creating, and providing me with amazing experiences because the industry is the way it is.

The games business is a giant cluster fuck.
This news makes me want to cry because i enjoyed the hell out of this series, even three.

Something needs to change in this industry, these giant publishers need to go away and the model needs to find a way to be reborn.
The sheer amount of abuse and burnout in the industry is telling.
I respect these teams so much, and yet publishers like EA treat them like disposable dogshit.

This business needs a union of some sort that will protect these people from this constant and never ending abuse. I don't know..i don't have the answers..
