I'm super interested in this game but I think I'll hold off until a few more content patches flesh things out. I really hope my crappy Logitech "Extreme" 3D Pro is up to the task.

People wanted the opinion of someone who owned the game, I gave it. I can't help that the gamer 'community' is so hung up on stupid shit that they don't take a game on the merits of the actual game and like to focus on whatever the controversy of the day is.


Well I mean don't get me wrong his response was silly and feedback is appreciated but you didn't really say anything at all about the game. Have load times improved since beta? I hated the huge ass waits between rounds. Is the gun play better? What modes did you check out so far? What is the Bot AI like? I hear its pretty rudimentary at best. Do you see the game having some longevity and being fun for longer than a little while?

So uhm people are cheating to get a on a leader board that no one cares about or is it just bots farming ?

People were botting before leaderboards when gold wasn't even tradeable anymore. People just like to bot ARPGs.

Hopefully Sony won't bankrupt their gaming division like the rest of the company

The gaming division is one of the few divisions actually making money so no worries there. They're getting rid of the rest for the most part. They just announced last month they had sold 18.5mil systems as of January and that puts them something like 8m+ ahead of Microsoft, the PS4 is gangbusters. What's crazy is how many they've sold without a ton of exclusives, I wonder what things will look like with some big titles landing this year. There's some speculation that console sales will slow down a lot this year but with the economy picking up who knows.

Anyways Playstation isn't going anywhere even if the rest of Sony is a shit show.

Seriously, it wasn't really worth it anyway. I had fun for a few hours, and haven't played it since. At least I stuck to my guns and bought it after I could find it for less than $40.

Yeah I wasn't terribly impressed with it either to be honest, I played the PC version a bit.

Three AAA game stories on Blue's, three DLC/Season Pass set ups: Alien Isolation, Dying Light, and Evolve. I don't mind decently made DLC, but it's just depressing that that's become the business model, as opposed to waiting and seeing how the game does before committing to DLC.

People don't want to pay higher "box" prices and the cost of development is insane these days so the money has to come from somewhere. When I was younger game prices tended to be pretty variable and I wouldn't mind a return to that. Some games I would happily pay $100 for, others aren't desirable at $1. The entry price points these days are kind of weird and feel outdated.

I just have to say it...I'm sorry. The guy from the Oatmeal is a pretentious, liberal shit. Yeah, I find his cat comics funny and he's amusing at times, but the dude isn't God's gift to mankind. I mean for example he praises Tesla to the ends of the Earth...yeah, Tesla got shafted and overlooked. Guess what? Tesla was a douchebag in real life. No mention of that. Nope, guy is a saint! Let's build a giant museum to him because he's THE MOST IMPORTANT SCIENTIST IN HISTORY!

Whatever. The dude is just as self-righteous as any conservative but gets props because he takes controversial stances. Wake me up when he stops using the same old knee-jerk comics to get reactions from people...it's old, get over it.

I've never really cared for the comics much anyway, the schtick gets old fast.

You can pickup videocard keys on forums for like $35ish already, I was thinking about scoring this but I'm kinda burnt out on zombie games.

Agreed, some laudable goals and rules there. I appreciate sites doing retail only reviews, far too often the publishers send out advance copies where the MP is looped into private servers. I hope other sites follow suit.

I don't know, the DLC shit was obnoxious but I am interested in hearing about what people think of it over the weeks to come. A common theme I've heard is that its fun but fleeting, no real longevity.

With the PS4 something like 8 million ahead in sales and growing its kind of no brainer for Titanfall 2 to be on the PS4.

I still remember Cubeworld, god what a disappointment that was. It wasn't on Steam's early access but same principles apply.

There is certainly something amusing about Derek Smart of all people calling Star Citizen a pipe dream.

As was mine.

Ok? No one said it wasn't.

As I recall Derek Smart actually likes Steam, he abuses the moderation privileges to silence critics.

Not sure what you are debating. Shit is still shit.

I'm not debating anything and the text of the post is pretty self explanatory. I think it's shit but maybe someone else doesn't, people keep buying his games somehow.

Yeah I've got major franchise fatigue with these games too. AC4 I was pretty much going through the motions when off the Blackdaw. Didn't pick up Unity, no plans to get this or to bother with the series going forward without major revisions to underlying mechanics.

Free or $60, 25 yrs ago or now, a shit game is a shit game.

Wasn't there a time a few years back he was whining that they wouldn't put his games on Steam?

*shrug* free is free. Personally I think there are far better ways to spend ones time than playing terrible Derek Smart games but perhaps someone finds some value in this. I doubt it but hey whatever, no one is making me download a copy so I'm happy.

I didn't love Braid to be honest but this looks pretty interesting. I need some games to play on the consoles, they're just gathering dust these days so maybe I'll pick this up.

Understand when I say attention "whore" I by no means using that term as slander against her gender; I view her as an attention whore as I am a New York Pizza whore.

Absolutely and there's nothing wrong with that. I don't think anyone is really having a debate over these things either, its just causing polarization and conflict. What frustrates me is how one sided it is, people don't give the industry any credit. The gaming industry is still young but despite that has grown significantly in terms of gender specific offerings and representation over the past 10 years.

People also seem to ignore other forms of media and marketing where gender tropes are even worse, many of those industries where women are in positions of power now even. Like movies and television, gaming is a business first and foremost so companies are giving the consumer what they desire. That doesn't mean the industry or its audience are flawed, people often seek out unrealistic and exaggerated entertainment, women are no strangers to that either.
