Here is the gameplay footage.

That gameplay footage does look interesting. It's like a more action packed version of what I thought aliens MP was going to be a long time ago. I think the DLC options are going to make or break this game. I can even see them going DOTA2 route and being F2P with just having to buy lots of extra hunters/monsters. I also see this route as a failure.

I still have to try this game... I just have a feeling I will dump way too much time into it.

Let the PC players into this and watch the controllers get destroyed. I hate it when they call a world championship of a game... yet they only allow 1/3rd the systems the games on to participate.

Also everyone is saying this is going to F2P, I'm sure it will. But what I don't get is people saying that it would be BETTER as a F2P, but how?

Why would I play an Elder Scrolls game where better gear or something is locked behind microtransactions? I'm sick of the F2P model in games, I really am, I hope it dies out completely in the game industry. That's why I enjoy games like Eve, I pay montly for 1 or 2 months than stop subscription when I don't want to play.

It's because it's not that the game will be better, it's that the game isn't worth paying $15 a month. Also you can have F2P that doesn't lock things totally behind a paywall. You lock things like extra character slots, extra bank space, extra appearance options. Extra being the key word here... then also pay for exp packs. There's at least 5 F2P MMO's in beta or just launched that do everything ESO does, but have better animation, look, feel, combat, connection, skills, etc. The game as it stands right now is at least 1 year of polish and a reword on a few major key systems away from anything that wants to be monthly sub.

Playing through the entire game, the only problem this affects is the people going for 100% completion. You only play as Deathstroke in the training sims that are 100% optional and honestly I didn't even know existed until I was looking around a menu and realized I was missing one unlock because I didn't go do the batman part of them.

I wonder if this will play better on the WiiU with the gamepad or if they'll just squander it because of porting.

I know for me, loading up a lets play and seeing the campaign as finished at a bit under 3 hours kinda killed any hope of buying it for me. Also having the PC version get a measly 18% off on the steam sale, when the xbox/ps3 versions where $30 during the holidays didn't help. Like a huge slap to PC gamer's faces.

I did kickstart this way back at the start. It seems to me the game has changed about a dozen times since then and keeps getting more and more added to it. I didn't spend a lot on the kickstarter, but with every bluesnews post about it I can't help but think it's going to be that much longer until I get the game. Also seems like it's getting more and more P2P/W.

While I don't really hate the service... when the only way to install AC4:BF was to uninstall Uplay and then reinstall it, thus deleting all my games and saves, it's kinda strange and broken. Something about a drive with 200gigs free not having enough space until I removed the client.

Yea I've been doing mmo/game alpha/beta tests for too many years. I have ground through a lot of bad MMO levels/stages/tests. I don't think I even made it to level 5 in ESO before I was wondering what I wanted to play on my steam backlog next. I found a lot of F2P mmo's (Aura kingdoms being the latest and it's beta too) that just have better flow/pacing and entertainment factors. If you played any mmo and skyrim in the last 5 years you've already played ESO.

I know I am in the minority here, but I am currently a fan of the game based on my latest experience in the beta. After my first weekend I was a bit disappointed but I have found it more entertaining the more time I have had with it. I dig the trailer, they did a nice job with it. I am disappointed that they are choosing to put something like a "race" in a CE. I don't think that is a very well thought out decision.

Played through all the beta weekends. Maybe I have played too many MMO's but it's more of the same and not greatly done. The world does not even grip me enough to think about buying then paying for this.

News Comments > Starbound Patch "Hopefully" Wipes Out Wipes
3. Re: Starbound Patch Jan 27, 2014, 18:02 Linksil
 
Well they did this patch and gave us a nice heads up before it was happening so that it wouldn't need wipes in the future. I think most of the basics are in there and the list of stuff they want to add is almost like an expansion pack listing. One of the better ways to do early access vs random updates or lack there of.

4 months as a producer is just enough time to get your name on the box and not much else. I mean you can help during crunch, but if your changing the game/vision that late you've got a POS. I liked the Gears storylines, but by the third game it seemed way too played out. I think this is a great thing for epic as they can go onto the next franchise with a nice amount of cash from the sale.

I've been on the fence about getting this. I loved the old M&M games 1-6 before heroes. But the games backlog is so high I don't know if I can afford that much time commitment.

News Comments > Resident Evil 4 SD & HD Comparison
9. Re: Resident Evil 4 SD & HD Comparison Jan 24, 2014, 11:45 Linksil
 
Okay, the textures look a bit better... although I do like the old boards one better. Mostly because it makes it look okay, where with the sharper textures all I see is the squareness of all the objects. See HD dosn't mean you just use high res textures. It means you would go back and add more polys to the models to make everything smoother WITH the new textures so they don't look more out of place.

Ohh yea, I love how the tree is updated, but the fence to the side of it isn't. I'm sure after the coffee kicks in I might find more.

Looking at the other side here: Without knowing the exact clause it's hard to say if it's as horrible as we all assume. I mean it could be the warning/clause is meant so they don't disclose the amount they're getting paid. Which I think is perfectly fine, since they can still say that the review is sponsored by EA and be in FTC guidelines... I think. Maybe the warning was just so that they can pay 10$ to one guy and 15$ to another and they are trying to avoid the 10$ guy from finding out he's being underpaid. Either way it's kinda shady, but it's like a film critic getting free tickets to a movie, vs the one that get's all his snacks paid for in addition.

Looks like a good game for when the 75-90% Steam sale rolls around. I kinda miss playing this on gamecube, but not enough to drop 20$ right away.

On the topic: I think HD is the same as Broadband. Every company defines it differently.
