I'm glad to see X-Com getting some more love too. They had Enemy Unknown for under ten dollars and Enemy Within was only ten. As it stands it is the best TBS at the moment in my opinion. I've got over one hundred hours in the game now and I'm already planning my next replay. Love the new MECs. And I pray they are already planning the next expansion or the sequel.

I was talking to a guy from Valve on NYE. He said he's been talking to Firaxis a ton about their new game. He wouldn't say if it's another XCOM, but said it's the same team and, after seeing how the community responded and managed to mod a game not made for modding, they'll work hard to make sure the new one is very moddable.

Always glad to hear them talking about adding modding into games because they realize people still want to do this. Sadly I just picked up XCOM:EW and i'm not sure when i'll get around to playing it with all the other games to finish.

I'm kinda sorry I even wasted my time reading this. I mean it's just a page+ about how they want a game that lets you walk onto your starship and then start flying it. But if you don't like the hassle of flying you can fast travel. Oh yea and this is something space fans (rpg or not) have been asking/dreaming of for the last 10+ years. I guess because you throw in bioware's name it lends credit that it might happen? Then again I still consider Mass Effect more of a 3rd person shooter with a good story then an RPG.

Disc free might be interesting. Sometime way in the future when we all have flying cars and brain implants. But yea to consider it now just shows they have no clue about their own console market. Even after it blew up at them. Also I don't think they'ed want to make the console even more expensive by putting in 1-2 TB drives running at 7200rpm.

People do it, because they can, on the internet. That's been a long rule, and when your the biggest at what you do, people target you just because. There's no justifiable reason behind this mess.

What makes me more sad is how you read more and more articles about spying/limiting/arguing over the internet usage in country's. But they never try to actually use those to stop things like this and find justice for the normal consumer.

Is Natural Selection II worth it? Looks like an interesting concept and it's visually appealing, but I could maybe see it getting old, fast..

Not for $21. It's been a fraction of that price before. Personally I couldn't get into the game, but it also runs like crap on my machine, so my patience with it was thin.


NS2 is a very fun game with a nice community. I wish I had more time to play it, but I have been focusing on single player games this winter. Optimization is a mixed bag because some builds run a lot better then others, but in general it's been getting better and better with each one. Only problem with it is there is NO single player option(see bots).

With so many games i'm waiting for more eps to come out. I know with season one I got more annoyed having to wait and forgetting what was happening/character investment didn't seem as deep until playing it all the way through.

Honestly I've always hated quick scoping in games. I think it's because it is basically removing the only down side of the sniper weapons. If you want a weapon like that you just put a rail gun into your game. I've always thought just making it so the cross hair isn't 100% accurate from the out of zoom to in zoom is the best way to do it. Having a moving scope(key to hold breath) doesn't usually work because of the speed of quick scoping the waving isn't working as they fire. While i'm rambling on... I did love the tribes way, were you have to charge your shot to get 100% damage after you zoom in.

When you have to have a APP installed (I think it's a phone one) to keep track of all your clan stuff in game... you've lost me as a customer/person that cares about playing it at all.

Well season 2 of the show is coming... so I think they had to keep the game open as part of the agreement.

I think it's meant to be $60. I remember seeing a few kickstarters that were saying get the game for xxx when it's going to be xxx at launch. This is in part kickstarter to make the backers not feel upset. (which is bullshit because you backed it knowing a sale on the game will happen) This people bitching about pricing is horrible... $60 is the normal cost for a game these days, just get over it. We're lucky the price of games hasn't followed inflation and gone up to over $100. Also this is in part the way consumers have been breed now, as they expect and won't buy things unless they're on "sale". This causes retail costs to be inflated to adjust for the sales. Look at amazon and you can see this in about 10 items(esp tv's).

Yea, I lost interest in SP a long time ago... I do look back at eps every now and then when I see some article or mime about it. (like the black friday one) but It seems like I only really like 1-2 eps per season. That aside, i'm really looking forwards to the game and pray they don't screw it to all hell and back.

BTW what the HELL is with these teasers for trailers... PLEASE STOP.

It's because when you sell it your not selling it to one person like a stock. You are selling .001% or less of a bitcoin at a time and it flows through the markets as such. Unlike real money there IS a limit on the amount of bitcoins that can be made. People are using it as a new barter system and the money value conversion seems more like a side effect.

I spent some time a while back looking into bit coins, but it never seemed worth the elec cost to work with making them. It's something that if you didn't start at the start you got screwed exponentially by new tech coming out. Also nvidia cards have always been bad at farming them.

Another reason to put off buying new consoles until the game makers/pubs realize we'ed rather have full games instead of drip feeding us parts of it over the course of a year+.

I got this for free with my new 770 card (Batman origins and latest Splinter cell game also) Sadly I had to install uplay as they won't give you a steam key for AC4/SC, now uplay will download SC but won't download AC4. *sigh* guess i'll have to figure it out latter.

Yea, I also caught some of the twitch stream they did with the devs last week where they were talking about having 2-3 years worth of plans for the game and not just shelving it/making a sequel right off the bat. Also it's one of those dev teams that won't add something to the game unless they have fun with it and get it working right.

One other the reasons I got the game was the dev talking about this during an interview. Now there was a pile of zombies so it's hard to see a single character, but i'm pretty sure he was in there. I got the loot back he was carrying after I cleared them all out.

It's been out for a year+ on Xbox 360 so you can kinda forgive them. The steam early access was mostly just to make sure the port was working and didn't change anything on the gameplay. Only thing broke I found was achievements that didn't register.

I love the gameplay in this for the survival aspects, but wish there was a bit more choices. (Why can I only carry one backpack of supplies and can't stockpile them way high) When my first character got cheap shoted into a infinite stun and died I was actually really sad. Even more sad when the next one I sent to the same area got their face bit off by the old character.
