I'm pretty sure Bethesda will upgrade it to a GOTY edition by the time it depreciates to less than $20. So a $9.99 Skyrim may be even further off than it seems now. Like post-TES VI far off. And rightly so!

Well I'd settle for a GotY version with all the dlc for ~20 bucks of course. But to still have the price at 59.99? Inconceivable!

Still, I am like 3-4 years behind on bargain/sale games at this point, so it's more of an issue of principle than anything else. By the way, the 14.00 sale of Max Payne 3 the past couple of days (gmg) was entirely worth it, that game is hilariously melodramatic. Also by the time it's over Max Payne will have depopulated Brazil, there is no way there are that many armed thugs freely available.

ps. Rockstar Social Club... I curse thee.

I finally buckled under and bought BL2 when it was 50% off. When I've played enough to offer an opinion and it's the topic of conversation again, I'll do so.


Borderlands 2 wasn't bad. It wasn't great either, I couldn't even bring myself to finish a second playthrough on my main character.

Sigh... once again Skyrim, the base game, is in the top 10. I don't even think it's on sale this week.

Humanity, stop conspiring against the $9.99 Skyrim sale!

If you haven't bought Trine 2 by now, you should pick it up. Utterly gorgeous game, visually and aurally. The gameplay is actually pretty good too.

News Comments > Developer: Demos Kill Sales
1. Re: Developer: Demos Kill Sales Feb 12, 2013, 09:32 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
1) how can you know what your sales would have been if there was no demo? Comparing to a similar game/etc. doesn't give you accurate numbers on what your potential sales would actually have been.


2) SHITTY demos cut sales, because people try your game and choose to not buy it. Extend this to shitty games usually sell poorly, and you have the modern game industry.

Of course there is the caveat that a long demo that includes most of the game features/content will probably make SOME players simply not buy even an average to good game, because they feel they've had enough.


All in all though, Jesse Schell sounds like exactly what is wrong with the game industry and business in general. Customers are sheep to be fleeced, not loyal patrons spending their money wisely.

Hrm, universal ammo in Dead Space 3? I guess we're repeating classic blunders of past games now, eh Visceral?

Oh well, was going to avoid this anyway because of the microtransaction/resource grinding nonsense.

Holy shit, I know this is a gaming site, but NEVER BADMOUTH the Hitman movie.

As far as the reboot, scoff at your leisure, if Paul Walker is involved.

Dead Space started off as a quasi action/survival game, leaning more on the former than the latter but nowadays it is an outright bro action game with some light horror elements.

Yeah, the shift away from solo-horror/survival is probably going to turn out to be a major negative in DS3 also. I do love me some good coop though. Waiting for reviews/major price drops for this game at the very least.

"outright bro action," hehe.

Origin isn't much of a problem for me, I have it with BF3 and it's about as annoying as Steam. Which IS annoying, but tolerable.

The problem with Dead Space 3 which seems to not have been mentioned in this thread is the Microtransactions in the game.

Sure, you can say you can avoid using them, and most gamers probably will. However the drop rates on the "resources" they've talked about so far will most likely be way down, to encourage people buying Resource and weapon packs from EA, ala Diablo 3 and the RMAH.

It's a shame, I loved Dead Space 1 and 2, and was looking forward to DS3 until this recent nonsense. Hopefully DS3 is playable without massive grinding without microtransactions, I'll be avoiding this game until it's like 5 bucks or so, if ever.


Then of course there is the Day 1/Shortly after Release DLC...

Ugh... Skyrim needs to fall out of the top ten for a month or two, so they start dicounting the base price. It'll never get to my $9.99 level at this rate.

Hrm, DICE can sure make some sick BF3 videos. I bought Premium on sale like a month ago, looking forward to fooling around with the dirtbikes/getting annihilated in Air Superiority mode.

Not looking forward to random people blowing up said dirtbikes and jets on my own team, but that's multiplayer these days.

Rrrrrgh... shit like this infuriates me.

After you already have a great franchise in SoaSE, why the hell do you downgrade yourselves and make this crap?

I don't think there's much of a crossover in audiences either, from real RTS games such as SoaSE to MOBA nonsense. MOBA games in general seemed aimed at people who cannot or will not play more 'traditional' or larger scope RTS games.

At least SoaSE:Rebellion is pretty damned great. It's a shame to lose yet another developer, but these guys will either go bankrupt or continue to make this RTS-lite crap from this point on.

News Comments > Chivalry - Medieval Warfare Free Weekend; Sale
21. Re: Chivalry - Medieval Warfare Free Weekend; Sale Jan 26, 2013, 14:15 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
I tried this out last night... not sure if it was the servers, or the game itself, but it was choppy with poor hit detection, and generally felt sluggish.

I kept turning down graphical settings hoping it was just my older comp, but nothing seemed to help it. It played fine through the tutorial, and I had 40-50 ping on the two servers I tried.

I'd swing at people, and kill the guy behind me. This is on an archer, with the small dagger they get. Archery was kind of amusing, but Mount & Blade blows this game out of the water as far as hit detection/combat goes, and of course you can play most of the Mount & Blade games single player.

Anyway, back to PoE. My duelist is horribly messed up at this point, passives wise, but he's still going strong.

Hrm, looks much improved since the last time I played during closed beta.

I've been fiddling around with a couple of classes, started progressing a Duelist and it was going great, right up until the end of Act 1, when I used some Fire Traps on some wolf-things that spawned a similar effect when they died. Total system lockup, video card failed, had to reboot.

It's an excuse to get up and stretch, and I guess I'll send a bug report.

general chat isn't quite intolerable, but I can see it getting that way soon.
