Going to force myself to hold off for now. Arkham City is coming in a bit and I have an exam to prep for anyway.

I'll let them cook it a bit more with some patches and see what mods people cook up.

It's called growing up.

What do you call making statements like that?

Pointing out that people should grow up? Smartass

Anyone else sick of modern wahtever?


Saint's Row next week! Weeeeeeeeee!



Doesn't SR3 come out this Friday, right along Skyrim?

Creston

Tuesday. So if you can finish Skyrim in 4 days you can play SR3.
I'm not sure which I'll actually play first. I think I may do SR3, and switch to Skyrim around the time the first DLC hits.
But maybe not.
Can I quit my job and just play both?

Yes you can! I'll toss a few dollars into your hat when you're beggin on the street corner. Evilgrin

I would get OMD if it was co-op

That's a shame but oh well. It's not really structured for multiplayer right now, they would need to recreate all of the maps and totally rebalance. Just doesn't make sense so that they can tick off a box saying "Multiplayer Support!". Game is awesome with or without it IMO.

I'm with you here. OMD rocks. I am anxiously awaiting the extra maps DLC.

Animations do look pretty stiff and awkward, for a game that focuses on weapon combat I can't believe they have such poor first person weapon animations. One second the axe/sword is in front of your face then it just "blinks" out of view and plays the swinging animation, there's no transition from holding it to swinging it.

I agree with the write up on Kotaku

the combat just looks very wooden. In fact I'd say that the combat is the worst part of the whole thing. When a character swings a weapon, there doesn't seem to be any impact at all. So basically when characters are fighting it just looks like a bunch of wooden dolls are fighting each other.

yeh it really does look like that and its fucked up because beth said they were specifically working on fixing that

but its clearly not fixed, those dudes have no reaction whatsoever

Maybe that'll be in the Horse Armor Animation and Combat Improvement DLC.

Well I am a hardcore fan of 4x games, but I don't pay for alphas or pre-release candidates. So I'll wait until the game is actually worth 40 bucks.

Gotta agree. I was seriously considering getting it. Its been a while since anything scratched my 4x itch since Sins.

Companies need to stop doing this. If it needs an extra month or two in the oven...please keep it and bake on high until it's done.

I wonder if vsynch works in my Just Cause 2 now. When it came out vsynch caused this weird slowdown effect, not at all a normal framerate issue, but actual slowdown as if it was FEAR.

They fixed it a while ago in a patch.

I'm all for a JC3. I'd just like the ability to do flat turns in jets and planes. Apparently all aircraft in the JC universe are made sans tail rudders. "Banking is for real men or something like that."

Otherwise yeah...bring it on!!!!

Are they really having that much trouble retaining players?

Perhaps folks started to catch on the WoW isn't, and never was, that great a game.

News Comments > Orcs Must Die! DLC Next Week

There is nothing wrong with OMD. It's a very polished game that looks and plays great for the price. It's got 24+ levels to play and an entertaining story to boot.

It doesn't need multiplayer to make it worth the price.

I may or may not buy this DLC...but if they offer more levels, then they can definitely have my money for them. I believe in rewarding developers who deliver good products.

Dungeon Defenders may have a bigger checklist of features...but that doesn't make a game great either. I like the look and feel of OMD. I don't need to play it with someone else to validate my experience.

5.5 hours into RAGE and just reaching the Dead City.
I am enjoying the game, no major bugs, no major glitches.
Died 1x in the RC Bomb plant - playing on HARD.

Did all side missions, found all cards, did all races.

Can I ask what it actually has that other shooters don't?

A game in development for that long and I'm not really hearing anything from the people who say its good apart from: 'The shooting is done well.' or 'The driving is fun.'

I mean, really? A game in development for how long? That's it? The story is meh. The characters are meh. Is that really worth anywhere close to $60?

I didn't know that Orcs Must Die wasn't co-op until nin told me last night while he was playing.......that actually slows down my eagerness to play it...that game just screams co-op and would be a blast that way. Bummer.

Orcs Must Die is freaking awesome! That it's single player hasn't detracted from the fun of it. Well worth the $15.

This game looks like it will have much more depth and replayability than Orcs. Plus it has co-op.
Agreed, except I like the art direction, atmosphere and style of Orcs better. Hopefully Orcs will release some coop stuff in the future.

I agree. Orcs visuals grabbed me way more than this.

Also agree that they need to release some more maps and content for Orcs in the future.

I'm really liking it so far!

Its sad about the people who can't play with the default control scheme though. That does need to be addressed.

Apart from that...its a really cool game! Very different feel to Sanctum, so I won't be abandoning one for the other any time soon.

I'd say it's a $15 well spent! Smashing orcs never really gets old.

Only on the third level...so I can't comment on the upgrades or other abilities just yet.

You have no idea what I, and apparently a large subset of RPG fans, fear. Dragon Age 2 demonstrated that very pointedly.

I wish they would make this standalone. I can't imagine this feature has gotten additional funding so I'm afraid they are just cutting back on the SP side.

Yep, that's what I'm afraid of as well. And even if it didn't cut back on funding, it's likely cutting back on manpower.

EVERYTHING MUZT HAVE TEH MULTIPLAYERZ!!1!!

Bah.

Creston

So all this delay is netting us is a multiplayer mode for a game that does not, in any way, need it.

I don't want co-op. I don't want multiplayer. Just provide a superior single-player action RPG experience and end the series properly.

Multiplayer is the last thing I ever think about when playing ME.

Why in the hell do I need a Shepherd #2, #3 and #4 to complete an experience I spent 2 full games playing in single player?

For crying out friggin' loud!
