I read something related to this; they are making Star Wars: Rebels, should be released sometime this year. CGI cartoon from the people who did the last Clone Wars series, set between Episode III and IV of the films.

If you guys never watched Clone Wars on Netflix... it's awesome, definitely better than the majority of the actual films. I'm prepared to fully nerd out for SW:Rebels.

Also I am required to see the new film trilogy by law, so hopefully it ends up being tolerable.

Community is so fragmented. Without Premium, trying to find a HC Domination match is almost impossible, unless you want to play one map over and over and over and over.

Good job EA.

That's a feature, not a bug. "Just buy Premium and you'll be all set!"

HC Domination? Good luck finding people playing that on any continent. HC in general in BF4 is pretty weak with the hit detection, and Domination isn't that great of a game mode (my opinions obviously). Large Conquest is the point of the Battlefield series, and the best map is by far Golmud Railway.

Hopefully this will make the Naval strike maps more playable, some of them were mildly interesting.

True but I think people are complaining about the implementation. Then again, I may be wrong. Anyways Origin is as good as Uplay IMHO. Better implementation than GFWL but not as well implemented as Steam. Updates take way to long and to my knowledge, no voice chat support a la Steam...

Update bandwidth seems to be about the same for me on all the services, ie. the bottleneck is my horrible Comcast. There is voice chat via Origin, but to be fair it is barely usable, at least it was the last time I tried it, around the release of BF4. If I remember correctly you could only setup voice comm groups prior to the joining the game, or only with your friends or something. Limited and buggy, but it does exist.

Yeah, too early to tell at this point, especially with a film. Even if the script is great, the director/actors could take it another way entirely.

Whatever happened to Zombieland 2 by the way?

CoH 2 is gorgeous, but honestly I could not get into it much, and I love RTS games to death. Men of War series just demolishes this game, in my opinion.

Wtf, the Universim looks fucking amazing, if any of that was actually some sort of in engine footage. At this point of the project though I am guessing it was all pre-rendered concept art?

Reading their webpage(Crytivo), I am not seeing much prior game experience listed, team formed in 2013, distributed globally, Unity 3d engine base for the game. The guy listed as being in charge, is apparently a Digital Artist, no games under his belt yet either.

Still, 15$ bucks isn't too steep... considering backing it.

Wow, of all the hundreds of bugs, some of which are game breaking, DICE fixed those 2 minor issues? Better than nothing I suppose.

How about the Death Shield bug, or the unkillable AC-130 on some maps, etc. etc.

Whoa. Okay, I'll try it.
And, so long as you install it during that 24 hour period, it is free to keep. Permanently!
I wonder though, if I uninstall it, do I lose it?

I clicked on it to install(from the Store page), and it added it to my Library. To be precise, it added for sub games, RoS2, RoS2 Multiplayer, Ros Beta, Rising Storm Beta, I believe.

I didn't actually install the full game, but it gave me a message that the game would now be unlocked and in my library from now on, so, there you go.

Ugh, I have never really played Eve Online, but I know some people love the shit out of it. I would think CCP games is well funded enough to not have to do these kind of bullshit stunts?

I hope none of them get hurt, I also hope Gunnar Nelson doesn't go so easy on them that he gets hurt. Even in sparring/rolling practice serious injuries can happen pretty easily, especially with complete amateurs who have only been training for "months," according to the article.

why wouldn't it have party options? are you really that dense you'll just make shit up to hate? it's already been shown in gameplay vids that you'll have a party.

How would anybody be able to tell from that video that there are party options? Do you really need to resort to ad hominem attacks when somebody asks a question? How is that even considered "hate" ? Calm down, madam.

This looks like I'll be buying it for $9.99 or less... is there even a party anymore, or is it basically a single character game?

I'd watch that gameplay trailer but it requires a login to youtube? bleh.

Also, I am amazed so many people still dislike Origin. It's about as invasive as Steam is, at this point. I only start either of those when I'm actually going to play a game on their services. Plus EA keeps basically giving away games on Origin for nothing. Oh well.

Also, nutella with honey? Holy sugar overdose, xXBatmanXx! Double Batman/post reference, infinite points!

Ah,BF1942, so many great aspects, alongside some horrible game mechanics.

For every awesome kill on an enemy infantrymen with the wing of my plane, or epic tank battle, there were the pixel-aiming Artillery spammers, same-team carrier beachers, tank-theft during repair...ers... you get the idea.

I backed it on kickstarter, but i never signed up for an account at their new website. Wonder if i'm gonna have to change my kickstarter password (again).

It's always good to change your passwords after awhile, of course. I haven't gotten any Kickstarter warnings recently, but it's probably time again with this Heartbleed crap.

More importantly though, you WILL need to register an account (and your kickstarter game info) to actually get Pillars of Eternity.

News Comments > Homeworld Remastered CE Includes Light-up Ship
17. Re: Homeworld Remastered Includes Light-up Ship Apr 14, 2014, 07:47 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
I have no interest in buying the CE, but I will definitely take a look at the bare bones remastered Homeworld versions. Hopefully Gearbox doesn't get too greedy with their pricing, and/or these become Steam sale material.

Homeworld is probably one of my favorite games, all time. Homeworld 2 never really ran correctly on any system I had at the time, never got around to finishing it. The last time I tried to install HW2(in Win XP?) it failed to run as well, so at the very least it'll be nice to have usable copies.

Gorgeous engine, but I do echo TheWitcher's concern: what's the game play gonna be like?

Watch Dogs gameplay: use your magic phone to take control of basically any machine in the city. Then perhaps shoot some guys and drive around.

This will be awesome fun at first, then get boring pretty quick, I suspect.

Don't get me wrong, I'm buying Watch Dogs, but probably not until it's under 10 bucks.

Ugh... when is the zombie craze going to end? When is the multiplayer survival pk fest going to end? You would think people would be sick of both by now.

Even if you are in the mood for a zombie game, you probably aren't going to enjoy asshats burning down your structures 24 hours a day, for no reason other than to spam WTFLOLBBQ or whatever in chat.

That's yet another cancelled Star Wars game that looked pretty good, potentially awesome. What's up with that? This video is perfect timing for me too, I've been binging on Star Wars: Clone Wars on Netflix the past few weeks, rewatching the film series now, and reading the Heir to the Empire series. Nerd level, nearing maximum.

Darth Maul vs Mandalorians, I would have played it.

That's seriously effing impressive. I wonder how much Patjitnov has actually made on it.

I was about to say zero, but then I looked it up, and Patjitnov is actually involved in some way in the "Tetris Company" that Hank Rogers runs, and publishes various versions of Tetris in the US.

I assume it's a shitty deal, but probably more than enough to live comfortably on.
