launch trailer looks good

After RAGEs user score, the user score on metacritic means absolutely nothing except along with the usual metacritic score. YouTube is the only way to see if a game is worth it outside of a Demo.

Yeah, metacritic "user" reviews for games have been nothing but trolls trolling trolls for a long time now. I think the gaming press knows this, but continues to report on it to gin up controversy.

What would you rather have them be working on? Homeworld 3?
I sure would have preferred that! Do they still own the rights to Homeworld?

It seems that THQ acquired the rights to Homeworld back in 2007.

http://homeworld.wikia.com/wiki/Homeworld_3

If it's one of their IPs, I guess it might be up for sale right now. Personally I'd like to see Relic do something original that's not based on an existing IP. . . You know, like Double Fine is known for.

It might be a good thing if Relic loses the rights to the IP's it's been working on since it's acquisition by THQ. They've been doing almost nothing but 40k and CoH for the last 9 years, it's getting stale.

This does sound really cool, though. I'd really love to try it out. I guess for an FPS, your head set becomes your mouse? So you'd aim with your head? And instead of a keyboard, you could use a controller for shooting and movement.

The Unreal Tournament 3 demo seemed to have a gamepad for quick turning combined with head tracking for more precise aiming.

But if this takes off it will really benefit from new controllers. One of the things that makes VR immersive and convincing is if you can see a virtual representation of your body or at least part of it. So, a lot of VR setups have a gun controller or a glove that's fully motion captured. It's such a weird sensation to be able to see your hand in game, but it really helps sell the illusion of VR.

While Bioware is known for having Romance Opportunities in their games, since this wasn't in at launch... I have to agree that it looks like a desperate afterthought, and probably is too late. There's just too many bad design decisions in SWTOR, and they shouldn't have spent the majority of their budget on the fucking voice-overs.

It's sad, really.

There were multiple romance opportunities for all 8 classes at launch. They were just all hetero. But, they announced before launch that they'd be adding same-sex options at a later date, so they're following through with what they promised.

3D most likely we'll just be a come along for the ride, since it makes a lot of sense tacking it on with two seperate LCD's for perfect convergence.

I don't know a lot about it so I'm curious, how do VR glasses fix the convergence problem? My understanding is that convergence is where your eyes are pointed, and that naturally changes based on the distance to the object you're focusing on (more or less cross eyed). But even with VR glasses the screens are still a fixed distance from your eyes.

Would they need eye tracking to allow your eyes to converge on any object in the scene?

I'll take "Wild Assumptions" for $1000, Alex.


Yeah bit of a broad brush, I only meant the handful of comments assuming it's pornographic, but yours wasn't clueless. I also agree with panbient that Bioware has been making it too simplistic lately. The relationships in ME2 and 3 felt basically like a choose your own adventure novel. It was more interesting in Dragon Age when there was at least some element of trying to figure out the character's personality and what they respect.

Still, I like when story driven RPGs involve managing relationships and I've always respected Bioware for including non-traditional relationship options.

I'm guessing none of you played Dragon Age or Mass Effect or you'd have a better idea of what to expect from Bioware romance options. It's not pornographic, but it makes the story more interesting if your characters have relationships with one another and aren't just random party members defined only by their class. And having choice in how the relationships develop makes it feel more like a game. It is a little bit of a guilty pleasure hoping to win over Liara or Morrigan, but it's harmless fun and quite RPG like.

First of all, I think most male gamers would welcome women to gaming, and be happy that the hobby has becoming more mainstream. You can't let the existence of rude trolls on the internet convince you that all male gamers are dickheads. Any time you have an anonymous online community full of young people, the same thing will happen. Most mature male gamers avoid the Xbox 360 community for the same reason.

And, as for game characters that are meant to be sexy, it's okay just to ignore those games. You do the same thing all the time with books and movies. You may not like gross out comedies or romance novels, you may even find them asinine and adolescent, but you would never suggest that the publishing or film industries be homogenized to eliminate all crudeness.

You don't know that Steam, Origin and GFWL all have offline modes? I believe Steam has some requirement whereby every couple of months you have to authenticate or offline mode stops working. But that is pretty friendly to people with laptops or crappy connections. Still bones people with no internet access at all though.

Yep exactly. The comparison between something like Steam and an individual game like Simcity is completely flawed anyway. One is a service to sell games, the other is an actual game. There is a pretty big feature gap between them. Digital distro services have to implement DRM as per publisher requirements, publishers on the other hand get to choose what goes into their games.

EA chose this path because they like under pinning their games with online connectivity now as it gives a convenient excuse to retire unsuccessful ones that aren't generating an ongoing revenue stream. Look at the rather pitiful list of online features and tell me with a straight face that they couldn't have done that on demand instead of requiring always on.

Anyway sorry Rolling but you're 100% wrong here. People definitely hate EA for a variety of reasons but in this case it's 100% justified, their rather long standing tradition of shitting on older franchises is pretty well documented.

Oh well hopefully they learn their lesson from this. I'm off to my familys place for a few days, merry christmas everyone!

Honestly, how many people use offline mode for steam on a regular basis? Or GFWL or Origin? Unless you're traveling prolly not very often, or live in the sticks with shit for internet.

I really don't think this is as big a deal as you guys are making it out to be.

Verno is right that the real issue is game specific always online DRM, and distribution platforms are a bit of a tangent. But did you play Diablo 3? Even if you have a great internet connection, you'll still often have your single player game ruined by server maintenance or server side lag. There's no benefit for the player, just unpredictable inconvenience.

That's part of why I don't think EA/Maxis should take D3's success as encouragement to try the same shenanigans. A lot of people who hoped it wouldn't be so bad were burned by D3 and learned their lesson.

Yeah Molyneux did a great job with Spore... probably because he didn't overpromise at all.

Because he didn't work on that game.

Yeah, somehow I confused him with maxis. Okay to replace that I thought Dungeon Keeper was great at the time. His recent track record doesn't leave me very hopeful, but I do like that they're trying something unusual.

EA, no matter how many fucking bubbly t(w)its you drum up to pretend that it's all done for the player's benefit, it's still DRM, and you can still go fuck yourselves.

Yet you all have no problem buying hundreds of titles on Steam only to be always online to play them. Look I get it for those who travel alot, or military who don't have an always on connection. But that's like a 1% of less minority of most PC gamers. It's no where near the issue some of you are making it out to be.

Molyneux delivered interesting and unique elements in Black & White as well as Spore, they just weren't fleshed out with enough enjoyable gameplay. Still I'd rather see him take another crack at something that is in theory promising than hear about another safe and mediocre licensed game.

I don't feel any urge to fund it, he's rich and successful enough already. But if he comes up with something good I'll buy it.

NOT good news. THQ wised up and began using Steamworks for their releases. If Ubsioft obtains their old properties they will saddle all of the games with the Uplay crap. It's not horrible; certainly better than Origin and GFWL, but in a world with Steam it's utterly pointless.

I've got to disagree with you there, unlike Uplay, Origin and GFWL don't feature always online DRM nonsense.

It sucks to ever be saddled with a required distribution platform/DRM package, but to me it's the always online trend that's truly intolerable.

I haven't been keeping up with every detail. Is it going to need constant information from the server like Diablo 3? Or more occasional contact that won't lag the game if there's a delay?
