Hrm, hadn't heard of this before, but it looks pretty good. Dungeon Keeper ripoff/homage of course, but in a good way.

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.

Wow. Horrible.

Boycott is required for this game now. 10 dollars just to play coop online? Rofl.

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.

News Comments > Path of Exile Open Beta

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.

The preliminary sales list actually doesn't look terrible. Sega acquiring Relic is especially hopeful to me, since it was Sega that published part of the "Total War" series, which is hardcore strategy. That at least seems hopeful for a possible Homeworld 3.

I just read on Relicnews.com that Sega only bought the CoH IP. Hope that isn't true. That would mean no more Homeworld, ever.

Well, Relic had moved away from good RTS games anyway. Their focus is on smaller squad based, very little to no building games, ie. DoW 2 and CoH 2. I think Homeworld was a dead series even if this sale didn't happen.

News Comments > Chris Taylor on GPG, Wildman, and Publishers
4. Re: Chris Taylor on GPG, Wildman, and Publishers Jan 23, 2013, 01:20 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
The games industry sounds more and more like a HORRIBLE place to work, unless you are somehow independently wealthy and can make any project you want without fear.

This is more of an example of the humanity-wide problem of clueless managers in charge of technical projects that they have no real understanding of, most importantly the time required to actually put something together that isn't complete garbage.

Chris Taylor seems like a nice guy who is just going to continually get chewed up by soulless managers/publishers. Unfortunately I don't like the very little shown about Wildman so far, it seems like exactly the wrong time to do any sort of ARPG no matter what other genres it includes. I don't plan on contributing to the Kickstarter at this point.

Anyway, this really needs to become classified as a crime.

If posting pictures (that you own) of people without their explicit permission became a crime, it would instantly kill Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, and any other photo sharing site.

Say good-bye to news magazines as well.

Excellent. Proceed with this new law immediately!

They had a shopping mall level in the 2nd one. On a spaceship. A shopping mall level.

To be fair, the shopping mall was on the space station, not the ship. It was supposed to be substantially larger than the ships, and have some civilian types and their families.

But yes, Dead Space 2 is basically Dead Space 1.5. I still thought it was pretty good though.

Hrm, yet another killer CG from Blizzard.

Too bad the Terran player in her dream was horrible!

No bunkers, poor micro, etc.

Oh god dammit. Well, not really surprising I guess, but depressing. I really enjoyed the first two Dead Space games, port issues aside. I had been looking forward to Dead Space 3 until this microtransaction nonsense.

Way to ruin a franchise, Visceral/EA.

I am tempted to use the classic: "and not a single fuck was given" but I am sure there is a small demographic squealing with glee over this kind of thing.

Not that I am against the Stealth Bastard guys making some money, but isn't that game still a free download? Legally, I mean:

Version 1.10 here

I assume the Steam version is a more up to date version.

*EDIT* Ah the Steam version is Stealth Bastard Deluxe.

People are getting upset about the wrong thing here.

Dead Island's promo trailer was flat out amazing. Unfortunately the game was nothing like the trailer.

Never forget this horrible crime!

For the record I bought Dead Island on sale for like 5 bucks, still haven't finished it. I plan on getting around to it eventually.

*EDIT* Typo.
