I'm only on level 5 with my Engineer and I'm sold. Way better than TL1 in every way.

I'm still not sure why the hell they ever wanted to do an MMO.

Even a few years ago, the MMO landscape looked like crap. They have a good thing with the Torchlight franchise. I'd like to think they don't want to screw that up.

You D3 people... I feel sorry for you.

Have fun being controlled:
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6573698478

and never to play it offline, never to play it lan, never to mod it, all for $60 because it has Blizzard tag on it.

Grats.

You always sound upset. Would you like an internet hug? Really, people who play diablo 3 are doing fine - it's just a game my friend.

True it is just a game...and it wasn't really that great.

So...who's up for some Bluesnews TL2 multi when it unlocks?? Biggrin

People are still playing this?

Why exactly does it surprise you that people still play this?

Also, why is it in nearly every other news post about a game getting an update or whatever, someone has to post "Are people still playing this?!?!" ?

Why do you want to mess with tradition, man? Fight

There is no way I'd playing any X game without mods.

The XRM mod alone is making me put time in Albion Prelude.

Skyrim, it goes without saying, would be much less than what it is without mods.

Not all games will benefit the same from mods. Some games are play and forget(which is fine). But if there is a demand, and the developers can make the tools available, I can't see any reason to discourage modding.

It's one of the major advantages that PC gaming has over consoles.

So are we still at a point where people do not know how to do free to play games? Pay to win is the wrong way. It's not like there aren't tons of examples of how to do it right...

@Prez

Well with the 3rd tier unlock on Steam you do get a copy of Civ 5, which I wouldn't mind getting anyway. But no...just saying you will won't cut it. Puppyeyes

It just never gets old!

I just wish someone would answer the question...

Anyway Prez, are you gonna preorder Xcom? Because if you are, then I'll feel like less of an impulse buying fanboi when I do. And I can just blame it on you.

Well actually...it's because of you that a lot of us are in a similar sad situation. You're setting a bad example!!!!

News Comments > Amnesia Postmortem - Piracy? "Screw It"
8. Re: Amnesia Postmortem - Piracy? Sep 13, 2012, 21:43 Slashman
 
Well of course you're all forgetting that every game exists in a vacuum and does not have to compete with other games. Also, every gamer has the cash to buy every single game at release that they'd like to play and most can, and should, pre-order everything.

Adding up all that we can only conclude that games like Crysis should have sold eleventybillion copies and Ubisoft should be rich enough to purchase and maintain several large countries while singlehandedly funding the first manned mission to Saturn. (Actually...the sales of From Dust alone should have covered all that.)

How guys like this ever get to be in charge of anything boggles the mind.
Having the right social contacts, having the right university diploma and being in the right fraternities, having the right "social scent", not being a filthy upstart and newcomer, originating from the right families.

To get a job as a CEO is very, very easy when you are born in the wealthy part of the city. Social transition is still very weak, classes still exist and influence our daily life.

How true. I remember when I was working corporate and our new North American VP of operations came by. The guy was all of 26 and a Wharton MBA with zero real world experience, but word around the campfire was his family were mucky mucks with our CEO.

He has the corporate scent.

You don't get it do you? FTL is a low-budget strategy roguelike hybrid intended to be developed in a short amount of time. If you'd take a moment to use your brain, you'd realize what kind of audience a low-budget strategy roguelike hybrid has.

My opinion on graphics in indie games has nothing to do with what kind of audience FTL has. You seem to be having trouble accepting that. Take all the time you need.

I'll give you a hint -- A TINY F*CKING AUDIENCE.

Here's a hint from me: I don't care. There are some games I'm just not gonna buy if they don't appeal to me enough and yes, sometimes graphics can be a deal breaker.

*Gasp* Imagine that! There are people who don't like the same things as you do! I'm sure you'll eventually get over it.

Honestly, go back to the world of AAA sequels immediately and never return. Console releases should suit your "taste" perfectly.

Ah yes! The overreacting moron. Where would the internet be without people who don't read entire posts carefully before mouthing off?

I'm not saying that every indie game needs AAA quality graphics. I never mentioned that I want realistic graphics.

I dunno...have you seen Bastion, Orcs Must Die, Shadowgrounds, or Trine? All of those are from the large AAA publishers no doubt.

My point is that there is, for me, a saturation point where I don't need another game with 8-bit looking graphics just because it's an 'indie'.

It isn't a matter of going back to anything. I play all kinds of games. I own Revenge of the Titans, Frozen Synapse, Aquaria and Braid to name a few. That still doesn't mean I want all my indie games to look like they got made for the Atari 2600.

Good frikkin' grief...now we have indie elitist snobs!

Sorry as I am to say it, I'm going to have to add my vote to the 'Tired of crappy graphics in indie games' camp.

Make no mistake, I've got quite a few of them in my Steam list and I enjoyed several of them. But I have a relatively powerful PC and I'm tired of running games that look like they're from 1989.

Good graphics don't make a good game, but they add a lot when paired with good gameplay. Frankly, I'm tired of sacrificing one for the other. Indies need to step up a bit. I'm not going to buy another 3 or 4 Terrarias.

Trying to make MMOs in the traditional vein of WoW and Everquest will no longer work!!

How hard is that for people to understand? You can't do things like the old days anymore. People aren't going to pay for pointless grindfests and mediocre combat systems just because you try to slap a little more deep backstory onto them.

Everyone who would pay for that kind of thing is already paying for it and they really don't want to leave it for more of the same. Even despite them saying so.

It was pointed out to me recently that this site is a popular place for posts of people within the industry.

It does not surprise ONE BIT that you don't understand where I am coming from.

Actually I kinda do see where you're coming from, I was just hoping I was wrong and you weren't that retarded. Ah well, life is full of disappointments...

This is pre-emptive bitching. Why? Because I like Valve and I see where they are going. So fuck YOU if you do not understand.

Retarded, foul mouthed and clairvoyant. A winning combo if I've ever seen one. Good for you.

edit: actually to clear things up, MY advice to Valve is to become relevant again. I.E. RELEASE some games that you have developed.

I'm sure they were wringing their hands just waiting for you to give them the direction they need to move forward in.

Yeah that's cute and all, maybe it will even sway a few of the peons around here, but really, you couldn't even answer the question without resorting to elementary level attacks.

All that really matters is the product. The fact that they treat their employes well(allegedly) is all well and good, but the bottom line is that I as a consumer don't really care about that shit.

I want my product. The one that I asked for, and none other.

Did you pre-order something and not get it from Valve? What the hell are you even talking about? Do they owe you money or something?
