I picked it up for a $1 not too long ago. It does have it's moments. The two fellas roleplaying over voice chat on my ship had me laughing out loud more than once. Another time my captian didn't communicate at all and it wasn't very much fun.

My big question with google drive is why my downloaded files are nowhere to be found, especially for use with other apps.

It's amazing that EA continues to claim that the online pass is a benefit to consumers even as they cancel it. So much bullshit.

Dawn of Discovery offers more here, for a pay once price. The only online component so far is just a chat box on the screen. When I checked it out there was a heated discussion about the US welfare system.

Once things start slowing down as you progress they expect you to get your wallet out.

The Dead Island engine wasn't very impressive to say the least.

considering what passes for $60 worth of content, I'm kinda scared what $15 worth looks like

It is indeed third person, with mic inputs always on, and no way to turn them off.

It wouldn't surprise me if your "xp" is still stored on a profile on your hard drive, that goes poof when you lose the OS.

If BF4 has scope glare/glint, I'm not interested. That kills the game imho. The people who cry about it being too hard without it shouldn't be playing war games.

I miss the good old days of trying to hunt down snipers, even it took 8 respawns to find the bastard. It was much more satisfying once you finally found them than looking in the direction of the fire and seeing a giant glowing scope that's brighter than the sun. I'm sick of developers removing the challenges that we would face in a real life situation. I'm not saying BF is all that realistic, but still.

EDIT: I agree with the other comments about cheats. The game is full of hard to detect cheats. Go look at the list of cheats (if you aren't aware of them) that are out there and you'll understand that the game is pretty much ruined. I still do quite well against the cheaters though, so their skills must be god-awful without them.

Getting killed 8 times looking for a sniper doesn't sound remotely fun.

There are plenty of casuals (including parents) that would love this feature. Yes, setting up a server is easy if you have the know how, but not every does, nor the desire to.

Bad Rat refused refunds or any compensation, I eventually took it back to the store where the manager didn't want to accept it either but I started making a scene and then was able to get my money back. Worst MMO launch ever, both the game and servers were utterly broken.

It was Cornered Rat I believe, I remember it because it was so ironic.

I played this during the beta. Perhaps I should have given it more time, but the more I played the more it became apparent it was a griefer's paradise. Even more so than eve.
