That was a really pointless trailer for what I am pretty sure will be a really pointless game.

Sadly, I believe you are right. Whatever creativity there was at LA was long ago butt-raped by Jar Jar Binks...

I don't ever want you putting images like that in my head again. Do you hear me???!!!??

I'm just amazed that investors are still willing to put their cash behind WoW clones.

Even after failure on top of failure of any game to be a WoW competitor much less a WoW killer, something still makes people want to bet on a formula that has really only been successful for a single game for the past 8 years.

The Elder Scrolls MMO is another example of something doomed before it even starts. But they blindly charge forward expecting a different outcome by doing the exact same things that have been failing. You simply can't do it that way anymore.

News Comments > Oil Rush Tower Defense Map Pack
4. Re: Oil Rush Tower Defense Map Pack May 31, 2012, 18:55 Slashman
 
From what I have read in other, more extensive reviews, it isn't supposed to be about microing groups of units like in C&C or Starcraft.

Its about deploying units to the correct points to defend and capture so that you stifle your enemy's economy, while taking over the important resource nodes on the map.

A platform will keep producing units until it reaches its cap or until it is taken over so it is more of a tower defense scenario than a straight RTS game.

I'll probably pick it up on sale at some point just to see how good it is.

I don't really have high hopes for this port. Everything Namco has said thus far indicates that they have no idea what PC gamers want.

Whaaat? You mean we don't want pointless QTEs, Michael Bay moments and interfaces made for controllers??? What's wrong with you? (Note: Not necessarily talking about Dark Souls in particular because I don't know the game that well)

Wait...didn't you say a while back that after the D3 insanity that you had lost faith in gaming and were considering fading out to a different hobby? Or was I thinking of someone else?

Overall that hasn't changed. Four games do not equate to an industry wide shift. The industry, as a whole, is still headed in the wrong direction IMO. So, it is refreshing that at least there are still some games coming out that can give old gamers like me a reason to be happy.

Well I'd like to think that where there is a void in the gaming industry, some developer will rise to fill it. It may not shift the entire industry...but I don't think it has to. As long as there are enough games like Torchlight and Grim Dawn, I'll gladly pass all the D3s by, for example.

Oh...there is also this one that looks interesting. They are offering a completely offline version too from what I understand.

Don't like medieval crap so i've never gotten into Witcher but Cyberpunk I will buy.

Day one purchase!

The Witcher series isn't 'medieval crap'. It's actually one of the better RPG series out there, but don't let that stop you from talking without consulting your brain.

I'm pretty sure he wasn't saying The Witcher is crap, just that he doesn't like medieval settings. He didn't exactly exactly phrase it like a Shakespearean sonnet, but it's still a perfectly valid opinion. But don't let that stop you from insulting people who you fail to understand.

Phrasing isn't the problem. It's the implication that if it's 'medieval', then its crap. I don't particularly like point and click adventures, but I don't necessarily think they should all be classified as crap.

But hey, butt in where ever you like and tell people what they really mean to say. And even you are right, he still stated it in a way that made it seem like he was saying The Witcher series is crap by virtue of it being medieval.

Man! First a decent DX sequel, then a Shadowrun game, and now this! Very excited!

Hells yeah! Coupled with the new old-school style CRPG for the Divinity series announced yesterday - and let's not forget Wasteland - 2013 looks like it's shaping up to be the best year in a very long time for CRPG vets.

Wait...didn't you say a while back that after the D3 insanity that you had lost faith in gaming and were considering fading out to a different hobby? Or was I thinking of someone else?

A RPG free of the swords and sorcery mumbo jumbo? Please say it's so. I love anything cyberpunk. Take my money! (it'll be a first - most of these RPG developers have never earned a dime from me, I love RPG game mechanics just can't stand the early afternoon children's tv show storylines).

Deus Ex! And that's pretty much it. Well, I guess EYE could be considered an RPG... kinda. Shadowrun as well, though that came out a while ago. I'm surprised there haven't been more cyberpunk RPGs. It seems like such an appropriate setting. I guess publishers are still fearful of non-fantasy settings.

New Vegas doesn't count?

If they are using the Witcher 2 engine for this game, then I imagine that it won't be point and click.

But to echo what others have said here, I'm almost sure to love anything from CD Projekt so they can take my money!

Do you guys (the original 3 commentators) honestly not have the IQ to figure out that this is for future projects like, I dunno, a Skyrim expansion?

Do you have the IQ to realize a joke? (Apparently not.)

Looks like there is a bunch of aRPGs to play coming up and I'm not lamenting my D3 boycott at all.

See this is what I don't get.

All reviews say basically the same things: Weak/overdone story, the obvious always online downside, doesn't innovate or add anything significant to the genre, normal mode too easy and item stats are wonky(differences between legendary and rares??). Removal of tweakable stats is questionable.

Then they all go on to say the game is great, give it a 9/10 and advise people to go out and buy it. All of them. Its like they swallowed some kind of mind-altering, Blizzard-slave making drug. Its like if that stuff was present in any other game but Diablo 3 it would be getting a 6 or 7. Instead, it gets a 9.
Yeah. Use apostrophe for "its" (it's = it is).

Bah...I was still waking up. I don't usually do that.

Thanks grammar police person!! Dunce
