It's trying to do to many tings. Ultimately it is going to fail somewhere.

It'll be miraculous if it ties all of them together with any kind of coherence. I just don't see it happening.

Next they will be taking your mothers as payment.

Pretty sure some folks already sold theirs to buy ships.

They had already sold off the mother-in-laws... Giggle

This is going to be worse then a communist soap opera

I thought 'Deep in the Red Love' was a very well-done and thought-provoking daytime drama. Oh wait! That never got made...

I am thoroughly enjoying my mad rampage across the cities of the world, forcing them to bow to my will or be destroyed!!!!

Seriously. This is a fun little game with some base building and management elements thrown into the mix along with 99+ possible skills to unlock for your giant, rampaging, robot dinosaur.

I dunno. Space Hulk Ascension is a pretty decent game.

I think a TW 40k game would be odd to execute though. The races in 40k aren't the least bit interested in political maneuvering or diplomacy.

Not quite sure how it would work out. The Orks just want to fight. The Eldar don't settle on planets except for a small subset of the original whole. The Humans are prejudiced against everything in the galaxy that isn't human. The Chaos forces just want to consume everything. Uhhh...not much of a good setting for a 4x there when you get right down to it. And don't even get me started on the Necrons and Tyranids.

Not to mention people who are buying PoE are getting it off GOG.COM or some other website besides steam. There's no reason to buy a DRM free game on steam. So the steam numbers are skewed to only those who use steam for gaming.

You say that like Steam users are a small fraction when the likelihood is that it's a vast majority.

It's the old 'Steam doesn't have as many users as most sensible people know it has and I want to pretend it is much less relevant than it is'argument.

Oh and that's on top of the 'most gamers really really care about Steam DRM' argument.

Honestly, for the price point, I can't justify this game.

There are currently good 4x games like Star Ruler 2 and Stardrive 2 that let you do a similar kind of ship design while providing a whole empire building/conquest game as well. And they have actual 3d combat instead of just the fixed top down view.

It just doesn't grab me. The first one got old very quickly as well for me.

Endless Legend, big disappointment. Not terrible, but not good.

The only complaint I have with Endless Legend is the AI being really weak.

How is it a disappointment exactly? Most people seem to think it was a very well done 4x.

MMO developers need to learn from Wildstar's shortcomings and realize that they need to really focus their MMOs. EverQuest and Ultima Online managed to create games that felt vibrant and full even with only a few hundred thousand subscribers. You can still do that today, you just need to manage your scope and find a niche. And once you find it, REALLY cater to it.

The problem remains that no one wants the niche. Publishers likely run away from the idea, vomiting as they go. And you can't really build a 'small' MMO because of the kind of infrastructure and staff these things cost.

Until these guys start looking at MMOs in a different way, they won't ever succeed.

Essentially, you need an MMO for a niche of folks not made up of WoW-type MMO players. That's not an easy task.

The formula is largely the same because it's known to work.

It is known to work for a select few games who have had big success with it.

It's like the all-fluff, AAA, no-PC version, blockbuster game formula was known to work. And then after a while it was only known to work for a select few titles and for a select few publishers and developers.

People keep milking a dead cow but the market already has its fill of milk.

Have they fixed the rush for T4 units issue? That is what ruined the game for me.

They fixed that a while ago.

There was further unit rebalance with this expansion as well. Most of that stuff was in a massive free patch. The expansion mostly deals with new races, classes and governance systems.

This is why I now have zero interest in MMOs. The WoW forumla needs to go. It insults my intelligence as a gamer. There is no 'game'. It's just a set piece for socializing.

No real challenge requiring skill or thought to overcome. Hotbar skill buttons. Fetch quests disguised as something meaningful. It just sucks ass.

People jump on each new one telling themselves it will be different and time after time it is exactly the same boring, treadmill grindfest.

No, your actions don't change the game world. No, you can't make a 'unique' character. There is no substance.

Retrovirus is a very good 6Dof shooter with a single player campaign. How come no one mentions that?
