Never heard of Shallow Space, thanks for the heads up! Looking forward to seeing more of that and this game.

Exactly what I thought. Hopefully it's good. We could use some good RTS 3d space games with a story. I think the last one I played was Nexus Jupiter Incident. It was good but it had some quirky things.

CoH 1 was great, I had a hard time getting into 2. I want more Dawn of War 1. Seems like Relic sequels to RTS games are never quite the same as their predecessors.

Single player looks pretty authentic. Gotta respect those police officers who murder hundreds of people with no body armor and an MP5k hidden under their tshirt.

They've been practically giving away the metro games on sales, so I see no reason to just wait for this to be the same. Never finished Metro 2033, so I"m looking forward to giving it another go with some updated features.

All I care about is the single player campaign. I'm hoping it's fun and engaging.

I picked up Breach and Clear on a Humble Bundle. It's a fun little game, but the mechanic gets old after a couple missions. Maybe the new story and setting might provide some better motivation than the originals mission structure that didn't have much of a story.

Sadly early access will continue as long as people make money off of it. DayZ has continued to be on the top seller list for months. People vote with their wallets. You can buy early access and then complain it's not finished but guess what, they already got your money, which was their primary goal. There are genuine developers out there who care about their fan base, there are others who just want to get money and move on to the next thing. I prefer to buy games that are complete and not the idea of a cool game at some point down the road.

Maybe after enough early access games a.) turn out like crap, b.) never get finished, or c.) don't deliver on their initial promises people will stop buying into them.

I would be glad to see early access go away all together. I don't really find any appeal in playing a game that's not finished. By the time it's finished you might be sick of it and then you've missed the true experience.

The lack of being able to chat with your opponent, unless I just didn't see the option, is a bit of a turn off...-Alamar
Personally I'm glad there's no chat. A few people have added me as friends after games and it's just to tell me I suck and to go kill myself. The emotes work well enough, and you even have the ability to silence your opponents emotes, so if you just want to play the card game you don't have to worry about all the internet garbage that typically comes with MP games.

Does anyone ever really care about these "biggest surprise at e3 - PC Gamer" comments? We saw a glorified, scripted demo, it looked cool, probably best game ever. It's not like games change from their e3 videos right? *cough* watchdogs *cough*

News Comments > Arma III Bootcamp Update
5. Re: Arma III Bootcamp Update Jul 15, 2014, 06:43 Whiskers
 
I loved Arma 2 and the mods, Arma 3 just hasn't grabbed me the same way. I can't seem to get into it at all. I usually enjoy some near future themes, Ghost Recon Future Soldier did a nice job, so did CoD Black Ops 2. Something about Arma 3 just feels bland, it just feels like there's no soul to it.

Matchmaking has always been a problem, even in the beta. Their typical excuse was "we need more players and matchmaking will be perfect", but that never seems to happen. One would think they would redesign their matchmaking to work with the audience to have, not the audience they hope for.

News Comments > BF4 Dragon's Teeth DLC This Month
6. Re: BF4 Dragon's Teeth DLC This Month Jul 9, 2014, 10:22 Whiskers
 
I really like some of the expansion maps, especially aftermath. I felt those had some good layouts, close quarters, some sniping, not a lot of vehicles. Some of the close quarters maps were also fun. Back to Karkand was fun too.

A lot of the BF4 maps seem very sniper and vehicle heavy. I might just not be remembering BF3 as well, since it's been a while, but it didn't feel that way.

There have been quite a few nice changes in their Community Test Environment (CTE). It's too bad they didn't have that before they released the game. I still have fun playing once or twice a week for an hour or two. Looking forward to some new maps.

It's too bad they don't just forward port all of the BF3 maps, they had some real gems there, where the BF4 maps are just so so.

I don't understand why all these games feel the need to add the ability to see enemies behind walls. That used to be called a wall hack.

I already played GTA V on the console, so I'll just wait a few months for it to be 66% off or more. I'm hoping there is a mod scene for this, similar to GTA IV. Those are what really extend the life of the game. I don't really have much interest in replaying the GTA V story.

News Comments > 75 More Steam Greenlights
2. Re: 75 More Steam Greenlights Jun 12, 2014, 09:46 Whiskers
 
I think the steam store could use some upgrades at this point, especially in regards to early access and all of these older titles being moved to steam. Freespace 2 should not have a release date of Jun 6, 2014. Their system is getting overwhelmed by everything they are allowing in and I think it's starting to detract from the service.

Originally Greenlight seemed like a cool idea, and I"m sure it helps some of the smaller and more indie studios get a great platform to host their game on, but it's starting to feel like searching for a needle in a haystack.
