how is it fraud? When I go traveling for work all over the world, I want to be able to still buy my games and watch netflix or whatever else.

They still get my money, I never pirate and I pay for my services.

Regional locking out of services is what is a joke.

Quoted for truth.

I paid good money for my tablet and I get to have a gutted excuse for an app store. Why?

'Because if you live in the Caribbean, you must actually be from another planet where they like a shitty selection of apps. Let us oblige you by making sure you only get the tastiest turds
(You know...the ones with the little peanuts in them. You LOVE those right? mmmmmMMMM! Turds!!!)'

Ok now you lost me completely, because i've not once seen egosoft say just how horrible their game is to date. They say they are adding features that are requested, instead of fixing broken interfaces. Not once have i heard the egosoft devs man up to just how broken and unplayable Xrebirth was or even still is.

You haven't seen it because they have never done it.

Their first statement after release was how great a success the game was and how they are sorry that SOME people are experiencing problems.

Even then they had to admit that they never tested the game on high end rigs, they never acted like it was a mistake. They were all like: 'Well if it ran on low to mid range systems, it should have done great on higher end hardware.'

And even after all the crap, they keep insisting that the game will never be X4. Not that it isn't obvious by how much of a turd it is.

Are you joking? Cause i played Rome2 last month and its vastly improved. Infact i finally feel good about it now. As for Rebirth its still in an absolutely awful state.

Why would I be joking?

Do my copy-paste Generals in Rome 2 still teleport MAGICALLY to my standing armies in Rome 2? Yup.
Do my Generals have Families? **** if I know!
Do my armies magically create boats when stepping on water? Sure do.
Are the RPG city building mechanics and character progression non-existent? Sure are.

Dumb Design ideas are still Dumb Design ideas. IE just like Egosoft's Rebirth "highway" minigame = dumb.

If those are the only things making you fell Rome 2 is useless, that's a pretty weak list.

There is a difference between removing some features and then completely crapping over everything that made the previous games great.

Rebirth is just one huge retard-fest. Your co-pilot sits there and lets the ship get blown up if you remote pilot a drone. There is no radar. There is still no way to give precise orders to your fleet of ships. The Skunk flies and fights like some kind of bad FPS game. Small and medium shipyards still don't produce ships. You can't finely control what your stations produce and set prices for wares. You only have one extremely bland, ugly and uninteresting ship with a handful of possible(and boring) upgrades.

I could go on, but I don't think I have to.

Rome 2 is in nowhere near the state of Rebirth.

How did no one catch that during the recording session? Friggin' hilarious!

Sweet looking game though. Been putting off getting the other 2 since I have this stupidly long backlog of games already. Anxious

They always do turn based. The first one was and I have yet to play the second but I think it is as well.

I'd like to formally request that all game developers stop releasing games until I at least clear up enough of my backlog to consider playing their game. Sweatdrop

Uh-huh. I'll believe it when I see it. This is just more PC pandering while the 'next-gen' consoles work to get market share. Once that's done, all these supposed PC converts will all quickly suck console dick again.

Sad...but likely more true than not.

This just drives home the point that this tired formula for MMOs has run its course.

You can't keep churning out generic, made-for-derps-and-their-grandma, borefests and expect that people will be awe struck.

They all need to die. Seriously. when was the last time an MMO came out with either an innovative idea or truly brutal gameplay/rules?

Why apologize for the inconvenience when they are refusing to help with it? What does telling someone that has a non-working game 'sorry' do if you are purposely leaving them out in the cold?

So classy...

I'm in! This looks awesome. Just the kind of thing I'd sink long hours into.

I really like the first game and always wondered what these guys could do with more of a budget and a 3d engine.

Gotta hand it to David, rather than just talking about it, he is actually MAKING Elite 4 now.

In other news, Amazon.com reports that they've shipped a large supply of ice scrapers to various addresses in Hell.

I hate Dishonored. Hate it. The protagnist; the story; the environment; even the graphics themselves -- all so very, very bland. Due to Dishonored, I now hate the entire setting and anything Tesla-inspired. Please don't let this be a Dishonored clone. Let the gameplay not be developed around killing stuff, while the game itself whispers in your ear you'd best play nice like that dumb shit of a game. There's so much wrong with Dishonored it all wants to come out at once.

Please. Not a Dishonored clone.

So, you didn't care for Dishonored?


Neh it was alright.

No, they complained that you couldn't talk to NPCs in the street and that the houses you could rob didn't have inhabitants. Basically, they were complaining that the game isn't Skyrim. You could never talk to random pedestrians in any Thief game and most of the random houses and apartments you could rob did not have inhabitants. Same applies to Dishonored. You could talk to random NPCs in Dishonored but it seemed pretty silly, considering you were a wanted fugitive wearing a creepy metal skull mask.

Jerykk, the guy detailed sneaking into a brothel then causing a commotion, running from guards and barging into a bedroom with a couple having sex and no reaction from them. They kept on going. They didn't yell or alert the guards.

It's more than not being able to talk to people. He's saying most people don't react to you unless they are guards no matter what weird stuff you do.

Well I think it's kind of telling that PC GAMER gave this an unfavorable preview.

They mentioned that the world felt lifeless and actually stealing from people in the streets(when you could find some), brought no reaction.

Breaking into people's houses and causing a commotion never caused people to come looking for the source of the noise.

Basically, it seems to be a cruddy version of Dishonored. If PC Gamer is ragging on it, you know it can't be a good sign.

I backed 3 kickstarters, and this is by far the one i'm the most excited about (others being Eternity & ROAM)

I was backing Kickstarters left and right back when this was KS'd, but I missed it somehow. It's so impressive as basically a one man show (I think he outsourced the music). Josh is like another John Carmack. This will probably be early access this summer, but probably won't be "finished" until next year sometime.

In terms of the time frame, I think mid 2014 is also very optimistic. However, the way he is building the game is to get all the framework and background mechanics in place first, THEN add the necessary content.

His theory is that the game will come together very quickly once the underlying systems are done. Since he's so thorough about the back end stuff, I tend to think he could pull it off.
