Isn't this like a really, really old game? 2008 I believe it was released or thereabouts. KUDOS to Volition for still supporting the game. I guess people are still playing this in multiplayer?

I've never understood how this works, maybe u can explain it to me. What exactly does TrackIR do in this game? I assumed that using the Oculus alone would be enough for head tracking and accessing your left and right menu's.
Yeah you don't use both. It is Oculus or TrackIR.
I am using my TrackIR and it is great. Looking at the sides to access the menus, tracking targets, look out the window as you fly by planets, stars, look around you while docking, so many uses. Even when you are launching from a docking platform you can look around you to make sure you don't bump into other ships. One of the big transport ships cockpit is all glass even the bottom, so while you are docking you can actually look down and see the platform beneath you to align your ship. I mean it is just hard to put it into words how amazing the immersion is with a head tracking device.

This paragraph can be summarized in two complicated words: Situational Awareness. In fighter pilot terms you either have it or dont. If you dont youre dead.

Yeah ... when I'm rolling I don't always realize what a "wall" it actually is. Then I hit "post comment," and I see it and I'm like ... Oh fuck. If I didn't know I wasn't mentally ill ... I might think I was mentally ill.

You seem rather bitter and angry about an issue you really shouldn't be bitter and angry about. Why are the recently updated or posted ethical policies something to get upset over? I'm personally very happy to see it, and while it's true there's no big flashing neon sign that says "GAMERGATE MADE US DO IT." the fact that sites that have been around for years all start posting policies, updating policies, or including disclosure statements around the same time? Well, that's clear enough indication for me. And the important thing is that, regardless of the cause, it is happening.

If you believe it's completely unrelated, well, that's your prerogative. I'm going to remain optimistic for the future of game journalism, however, and not take the "All hope is lost, you are powerless!" attitudes that some people have seriously.

I can understand people getting heated about sexism and misogyny and death threats. But ethical policies? I don't see the controversy here guy. I should think that's something we all want and should agree on, yet you still seem somehow angry about it.

It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority
- Benjamin Franklin

Well said NKD. The quote is apt in regards to beremot's and some other comments. Why the unquestioning loyalty to these gaming rags? Why not be appreciate the fact that they need to be more open about these kinds of things.

With regards to this new CoD, no dedicated servers (which means rampant and unchecked cheating) so it's an automatic no sale at least in my case.

I noticed those guys carried some sort of space suits. Can you shoot holes in the ship/station so that the air escapes into vacuum?? Would the air get sucked out and would there be zero sound effects (since in a vacuum sound does not carry) except for those that are carried through your own body to your ears? Can they add that as another million dollar goal/prize or would that be too much of a stretch??

Looks pretty good for an early pre-alpha build. Apart from the funky gravity it looks much better than the space sim parts of the game. Maybe they should just cut those completely out.

It's when said content was already done, and was already included in the game, then gets locked away on the disc to be sold for extra later that pisses me off. LA Noire was a magnificent example of that behavior, as during the original game, the two main detectives would actually talk about cases in the past tense, even though I never played said cases. And that was because they were later sold as DLC.

So, they would have to go back through their build making sure to remove any assets for not-yet-completed content, incurring extra effort and risk, for... what good reason, exactly? So they don't hurt your feelings?

The content is not removed, just locked away. Are you serious with that question "for what reason" because it reads like a thinly veiled attempt to troll. The reason is $$$. They cant very well ask for 80$ at release. But they can ask for 60$ now, and then two months down the road they can ask for another 20$ for the content that was locked away.

Hey wtf? 35. posts in and no one noticed the blatant hypocrisy in that statement? The guy asks himself what he can give to other people and he is the CEO of one of the biggest tech companies in the world! How bout CHEAPER PRODUCTS asshole! How bout you bring back some of and reinvest some of those offshore trillions that Apple has been stashing in offshore banks around the world?? How bout you stop massproducing electronic products in thrid world countries where there is no such thing as human rights that allowed you to rise to the position of CEO of Apple desipite being a gay man, where child labour is not unheard of even in YOUR OWN FACTORIES!!! Fine, great you're an openly gay man. Good for you. Don't fucking pretend you are a paragon of world peace and justice because as CEO of Apple (or any other corp for that matter) you will only come accross as a fucking hypocrite.

Gay or not, Apple didn't get where they are by playing nice, or even by the rules. Think Cook, who came up through the ranks over decades, is going to change that?

No, I do not. Which is exactly why Im bringing up the hypocrisy. Coming out publicly as gay, I dont have a problem with. Its the rest of the schlock that got me riled up.

Ahh...Thanks NKD. It just got my blood up reading it. Maybe I shouldn't have posted in anger and being a reddit virgin. I apologize to any anti-gg or sjw I might have offended.

Well it wouldn't be a very good troll if it didn't catch a few people! Looking at the dudes posting history makes him look like a real wackjob. He posts about how much he hates Americans and how they should die, etc. Bunch of random shit all over the place. And that's just the stuff that hasn't been deleted or hidden.

The ironic thing is that if this kind of message had been posted by former redditt moderator against an ANTI-gamergate activist, the whole internet would have exploded and gamergaters would be hanging from the trees in the streets. How many would call out this individual as a hatemongering troll in that case?? The very few who did so would be drowned out by the clamouring for gamergate blood...

I didn't like this at first, it felt too easy but after giving it a second chance its really growing on me. The combat is very well implemented for sure. I keep meaning to do a story mission but get lost along the way, doing side stuff and getting into massive brawls.

Same here. Although I lost interest again about a third of the way through. I fire up the game, brawl for 10 minutes and get bored as fuck. Game Of The Year? Must have been a sorry ass year for games then...I wont be getting the DLC.

It's hard to fault her on blaming the Seattle shooting on misogyny. Early reports, and the twitter feeds of those involved, make it look like he killed a girl because she wouldn't be with him.

Wha..? Seriously, Jesus Beamer you really go off on the deep end with this issue over and over again. Hating/Loving ONE person (for whatever reason) is hardly hating all womankind. A mentally ill person is NOT a misogyinst. Its not a fucking disease, nor is it a mental condition. Its prejudice, pure and simple. A jelaous rage is not misogyny. You are doing a disservice to all reasonable people (including feminists) by obsfucating the issue with bullshit like this!

i have no inherent beef with the practice; what gets my goat is that the base game is nowhere near finished. what we paid for was NOT a full AAA game experience, and yet they started working on the DLC years ago. that's a fact - there are clips of areas from dev previews from 2013 that are not in the game currently, and it's almost certain they hadn't decided at the time what was and wasn't DLC. hence, they cut content from an already unfinished game to gouge us for more cash later. that's just unabashed greed and people are being willfully ignorant if they can't see that.

i and a lot of others are boycotting the DLC in hopes that they get the message and release free content to at least flesh out the base game experience. otherwise there's no chance in hell this game will last 10 years.

Exactly this. This is a deplorable, low life douchbaggery business practice that's a small reflection of the general direction our whole society is heading in.

You know what this game didn't need? Kadala and buffs on top of buffs on top of buffs to legendary items.

It took me about two weeks of modest grinding to deck out my Crusader, Witch Doctor, Monk, and Demon Hunter with their respective OP sets (Sunwuko 4pc, M6 etc...) and that pretty much drained my interest in progressing further and this is from ladder play where you start from scratch. Longevity in this game is now a joke when they decided to cater towards 'give me a lot of everything, now!' players.

The only time I ever thought I was anywhere near completing my character in, say, Path of Exile was when I Chanced a Bringer of Rain on my Dual Claw Shadow in his late 70s a few seasons back.

This game is fucking boring. Rifting to get that drop you need, just so you can rift quicker is fucking boring. Boring boring boring. Even in hardcore. Know what killed this game? 4 player games. It should have been 8. Know what else? No level progression. All this talk of ladders is fucking bullshit, bullshit when you have level caps. Paragons dont cut it sorry. Oh and dont me started on the PvP and the bind on account...Im sorry I even fell for the loot 2.0 patch and wasted a few months of my life on this piece of shit...

Sauron, it doesnt help that this last game seems to be riffing on Skyrim like a whole shitload does it?

DA:O was the last EA game I bought. I think. One of the last ones I believe, and one of the best EA games they have produced. Still after the second Dragon Age fiasco, and the drop in quality with Bioware titles ever since I have little hope for DA3. I hope to be proven wrong, I hope that DA3 will be the game that will get me to get on Origin. Very little chance of that happening though.

Full disclosure, I'm the lead developer on NS2: Combat. This game is being made by members of the NS2 modding community that formed their own studio - Faultline Games. Earlier this year Unknown Worlds gave us the license and support to rewrite our old mod and make it polished enough to sell as a standalone game. It includes many new abilities, features and game modes.

We're still livestreaming now on Twitch if you have any questions...
http://www.twitch.tv/faultlinegames

Welcome to the boards, if you contact Blue directly via email he can grant you a developer 'tag' that changes the color of your forum nick. If you decide to stay a word of warning: we are a hard bunch that takes no bullshit from anyone. Be prepared for skepticism and criticism at every point of the way. There will be no asskissing here. However, what there will be are hard and honest perspectives and views that you will not find on any other forum or board. There are trolls here and there but they are easy to spot and the regulars usually destroy them with their own medicine before they get out of hand.
