Iirc, my nth playthru left my solo guy a 1 man wrecking crew with fantastic 2-hander, haste boots, dual Rings of Gaxx (honestly earned through game mechanics) and the spell-reflecting cloak ("boing!").

I happily used my demon werewolf whatever it was transformation. I wanted power...Power...POWER!

There were patches out to prevent 2 gaxx rings, but I confess I didn't install them either. 1 Ring each to my two main melee characters.

Although I drew the line at the Cloak of Spell Reflection. Once I looted that in Saghuin City, I just left it in the bag of Holding. Overpowered.

All this BG2 related talk is getting me excited, could be time for another BG2 playthrough, possibly a BG1,BG2 Tutu playthrough.

Actually, he's still at id...

reading that page, it sounds like Carmack has a full time job with Oculus, yet Bethesda still wants his name attached to id software. Somehow I suspect he's not going to be doing much at id.

More on topic: Screenshots look great, I love how detailed the characters look. Also it looks like overpowered dual wielding is making a comeback. Only concern I have is how that party in the lower left already has a view of the next room with the door closed, gameplay wise that seems to be a mistake, in my opinion. I'd prefer a Fog of War effect for unexplored rooms, assuming this isn't just a completely staged screenshot.


This is one of the very few Kickstarters I actually backed, looks like they are on the right track.

Sorry to the posters who were looking for dramatic changes to the isometric 3d RPG genre, this game won't be it most likely.

Men of War sounds right up your alley. Also, The Bureau isn't a strategy game. It's a cover shooter with strategic elements. It has more in common with Mass Effect than XCOM.

Yeah, I have several of the Men of War series. They are good, but I think I'm WW2'd out at this point, can't bring myself to reinstall and play them again. Also the ammo micromanagement in that series is a little annoying, to be honest.

More Mass Effect-like games is like saying studios are making more MOBA games, in my opinion; they are aiming for the easy route instead of making more tactically complex and interesting games. Probably more popular/better sales but not quite what I'm looking for, especially if you literally have X-Com in the title. Oh well.

Hrm, YOLO reference, urge to boycott rising.

Joke trailer aside, yet another extremely small squad game, what a disappointment. Surely we can have a Western tactical RTS/pause/turn based game with, I don't know, 8, or even 10+ characters in the squad at one time?

Before anybody cries about the console port aspect, I remember plenty of Sega Genesis games (usually Japanese) with 10-40 characters on your team, still easily playable.

The Humble Indie Bundle is pretty ridiculous today:

Damn, that is a great deal. Drawbacks: still on Steam, and I own all those games already except Sacred 2, Risen 2, and Riptide.

Although, it does show $4.78 when I go to that page, for everything but Riptide... very enticing even if just to give as gifts.

Hrm, that Super Meat Boy creators vs oily movie producer is slightly amsuing, but it certainly isn't 50 minutes of voice only amusing.

Also, no one should try to pick up and play a MOBA (for the actual first time)at this point. That ship has sailed. Don't contribute to that industry wide problem.

I really hate corporate America. problem is i dont much care for liberal America either.

someone needs to come up with a whole new system of government and finance.

There is no liberal America. There is corporate America, and the ultra right wing America.

There is no chance of a new system because the people it would benefit have zero power and almost zero money.

Hopefully this cheers you up.

Ugh I didn't even think of the drm aspects... I am sure WBIE will push for Steam + Windows Live + Whatever other bullshit they can come up with.

Hopefully CD Projekt setup a contract that allows them to also release a DRM free version on gog.com.

These guys seem like they are outsmarting themselves a little.

What I'd really like from BF4 is the ability to setup my second MONITOR... on my PC... to be a large map with player data on it and/or a loadout screen, etc.

I don't own a tablet, and I'm not going to be using my cell phone for any game.

We'll assume it was her head for the sake of argument. That'll teach him to be 'old' (39), fat, and want to get near a woman he finds attractive! Justice served.

Spam bot abuse not withstanding.

What a bunch of jokers running this contest though, obviously they should have just disqualified that guy and moved #2 to the winning slot.

Perhaps you’d like to level up the race you don’t play the least often

So... in other words, level up the race you play the most?

What are a few double negatives among corporate entities and their customers?

Hehe, now the real work begins: deciding which mods to use... this is an epic undertaking.

Not counting obvious stuff like HD textures or whatever.

Just put all the games you want in your Steam wishlist and you can just browse that list to see which ones are on sale.

I do this, I thought everybody does this, Everybody SHOULD do this, wallets be damned.

Hell = frozen over.

Willpower = suspect.

I gave in and bought Skyrim Legendary Edition when it was 40% off. Dishonored too when it was around 10 bucks. Damned Steam Sale! *shakes fist*

I debated buying Monaco, but so far I've been able to call it quits on buying stuff.

Initially this was exciting news, as the Homeworld series is great. However I fear Gearbox is going to fuck it up royally, in several different ways.

Hopefully I'm wrong, and the two remakes come out amazing, but something tells me they won't be able to control themselves at Gearbox and will just plain ruin this opportunity.

News Comments > Battlefield 4 Campaign Details
16. Re: Battlefield 4 Campaign Details Jul 18, 2013, 20:23 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
Wow, I'm surprised there is so much BF4 Single player support on here. Even if you do like the campaign, are you honestly going to play it more than once? Yet unfortunately the developers will be forced to spend the lion's share of their time and money on the single player, almost always to the detriment of the multi-player.

Of course there are so many dump trucks full of cash headed towards DICE that it won't really matter, but it's still slightly annoying.

TL,DR: Boo, Single player BF series supporters.

Also if you played BF1942 and were looking for single player...for shame! The point of BF1942 was to run the enemy over with Spitfires and Zeroes. Occasionally, get into a tank and wreak havoc. The End.

PS. For comparison, I realize that DotA/MOBA games are not for me. Maybe multi-player oriented FPS/vehicle games are not for some people also? Something to consider.

Bleh, any Battlefield single player campaign. Waste of resources.

Especially when the single player campaign vehicle physics, FPS weapons etc. are all different from multiplayer. It literally hinders you rather than helps you for future multiplayer.

News Comments > Guild Wars 2 Election Season Begins
6. Re: Guild Wars 2 Election Season Begins Jul 16, 2013, 17:51 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
What is your(plural) opinion of Guild Wars 2? I am debating getting into it, about half my usual group of players is playing it currently, but they are the real MMO addicts and they are not to be trusted while on the smack.

Worthwhile game, or just another grinding machine in a shiny package?

Disclosure: I have not played a MMO obsessively since EQ1, but I did dabble in Anarchy Online, DAoC, WoW, etc.

I guess the real question is, is it worth it time wise, or should I just stick to the stack of sale games I currently have?

Doom was limited to 4 players in coop and DM. Duke 3D also was limited to 4 player MP. I remember playing 4-player DM in Duke 3D, but I can't remember if it had coop.

Hrm, Doom was 4 player DM I recall that. Then Quake 1+ was pretty much unlimited. Killing Floor, for a more modern example, is at least 6 players by default, and it's still playable.

I guess it's more of a personal dislike for 4 player coop, because it usually means my group of people has to either rotate people out, or field two groups, and then people start getting annoyed. And it's hard enough getting everybody together at the same time and willing to play the same game in the first place these days.

It's cases like this that make me want to don a tinfoil hat...

surely this fool knows his case won't win, and will be largely referred to as an example of a frivolous lawsuit? Even if his intention is just to force some sort of quick settlement from Apple?

Schemers like this guy seem like they are almost trying to bring ridiculous lawsuits just so the pendulum swings even further in favor of corporations against the common man. That seems like a paranoid conspiracy, I know.

Watch the film Hot Coffee, for an example of the other end of the spectrum, where people with valid lawsuits get basically laughed out of court because of the public perception of frivolous lawsuits, in part because of people like this guy suing Apple.

Even in this thread on a gaming website, people bring up forcing the plaintiff to face an uphill battle:

Creston wrote on Jul 15, 2013, 11:32:
If cockwallets like this dude would simply have to PAY for all court costs, including defense lawyer fees, these kinds of idiot lawsuits would stop.

Creston

Sure, in THIS one case it'd be nice, but in every other VALID lawsuit case, the wounded party, usually a person with little to no financial means, would be screwed. The misconception of frivolous lawsuits in this country is just way out of hand, in spite of rare cases like this Apple-porn lawsuit.
