News Comments > Free Mass Effect 3 Resurgence Pack Next Week

That's cool they'll get a free multi-player expansion out so quickly. I was getting disappointed with the uninteresting weekend events. This certainly makes up for it.

News Comments > ME3 Ending Fix Coming in Free Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut

I'm shocked that they caved to the pressure. But ultimately that pressure came from their customers, so if the vast majority are actually dissatisfied, and not just a vocal minority, it's smart to give them what they want.

*spoilers obviously*

Personally, I was only mildly disappointed by the ending, but there was a lot that I liked about it. I thought the leadup was engrossing including all the last bits on earth and the confrontation with the illusive man. And the ending did a nice job of finally explaining what the Reapers are, aside from unsympathetic death robots. I even like how you were forced to make an unexpected and difficult choice that involves huge sacrifice whatever you choose.

And I certainly don't need to know what happens to every character for the rest of their life, I hate endings that try to do that. What bothered me were the inconsistencies. Why is EDI still alive when I choose to kill all synthetics? Why was Joker joy riding through mass relays when the final battle was taking place?

Also, I would have preferred that the ending be determined largely by my actions throughout the game and even previous games, not just a choice foisted on me at the end.

A 2D Shadowrun with classic PC-style gameplay? Oh yeah, I'm down with that.

Unfortunately they've got the limitation of accommodating the laggy jab-and-smear controls of tablets. So the gameplay can't require either precision or reflexes. But I guess a really old school turn-based RPG would work.

I'm actually very relieved to see their MMO fail, and I'm a huge MMO player and half obsessed with 40k. 40k is one of the darkest grittiest settings imaginable...and they were making a strawberry candlyland carebear version of it. Good riddance!

Will it be better if they make a strawberry candyland carebear version that's less-than-massively multi-player?

News Comments > SimCity Online Requirement Clarified/Corrected

This sort of nonsense can only encourage piracy. Because the average paying customer who has never pirated a game now has to go forth into the internet to find a crack just to fix the over zealous DRM. There's no reason they couldn't have an Origin requirement and an in-game store, and still not require you to be online at startup. Even steam has a limited offline mode.

My bigger concern is to what degree SimCity will be designed for multi-player. I don't really want some internet jerk fucking up my city with pollution from his industrial scum hive. That doesn't sound like a fun feature. But that scenario was the basis of their announcement trailer.

Wake me when they release a patch that fixes the Deus Ex ending they ripped off from a 10 year old game.

What 10 year old game was that? For once it seems appropriate to have an ending featuring a kind of machine god, given they're central to the whole Mass Effect story.

Not so much as you'd think. Cute is a much larger driver.

I think they're just scraping the bottom of their own barrel. Pandarans are the only race from Warcraft 3 that hasn't been used in World of Warcraft yet.

I mean what else are they going to do, try and come up with something new? Besides, I liked the little drunkard Panda dressed like a Chinaman.

Quoted For Truth. Knowing EA, I'm willing to bet this will happen.
Quoted for baseless conjecture. EA has done a number of things in recent years which deservedly have drawn the ire of PC gamers and video game buyers in general. However, shutting down fan projects is not one of them. I can think of plenty of fan-made mods and game projects which have EA's approval. EA has also released older games for free like the C&C Anniversary release and has approved the release of stand-alone C&C Renegade mods.

Can you actually name any fan-made games or mod projects which have been "foxed" by EA? I can name several by Activision/Vivendi and Atari, which is one of the worst, but not EA.

True nuff. And as the man mentioned in his response, they have a history of permitting fan remakes and expansions specifically in the Wing Commander franchise. So all evidence is that EA is showing intelligent restraint. I wouldn't expect them to officially endorse a project they have no involvement in.

IS this game going to have leveling this time? If not=failure...

I think you were misinformed about the first game. It had leveling. You also had an option of making sort of a gimped PvP-only character that was level 20, in case you wanted to jump right in to PvP or try out classes before deciding on one.

I doubt Guild Wars 2 retains that option, but it wouldn't bother me if it did. I'd just ignore it and play the game the proper way like I did with Guild Wars.

I call bullshit. We all know MS and the publishers would love to do this but society at large - around the world - is nowhere close to ready for this yet. In fact it's a safe bet that the majority of Xbox owners/players neither want or could go this route for many reasons. I'm sure Sony wishes they'd be that dumb however.

Exactly right. In fact Sony has already tried this with the PSP Go, which was a miserable failure.

I completely approve of this if they're all reasonably priced. The two $10 "booster packs" for BF2 were excellent. Unfortunately, it seems like DLC prices have experienced ridiculous inflation the last few years.

LOL, yet another case where the xbox version is leaked ahead of retail date and is fully playable, yet the PC (where all the companies seem to always be stressing and crying and saying they need more crazy insane DRM) isn't playable.

Maybe they should focus a teeny tiny bit more on console piracy.

All due to release date checks, the only form of DRM I know of that actually works. It really does prevent piracy for the week leading up to release. If they got rid of all other DRM, I'd be fine with them keeping the release date check.

What makes every other form of DRM more infuriating is knowing that pirates are able to remove it completely, so it only ends up punishing paying customers.

As for why there are singular reapers attacking elsewhere... I dunno. Tactically it doesn't make a ton of sense, unless they're doing guerilla strikes, but of course they have to do so, otherwise their precious MP part doesn't work.

I figure it'd be their massive overconfidence that makes them split off and start attacking in smaller groups. After succesfully wiping out all life in the galaxy an unknown multiple number of times they probably feel pretty damn invincible. Earth looks pretty defenseless at the end, maybe they leave the genocide bit to the husks and they split off and head to other worlds to bomb military installations. That of course gives your scooby gang the chance to start picking them off one by one and while doing so earn the help of the races being attacked. After losing enough the reapers retreat and both sides form up and go all in for the undoubtedly awesome finish. Just my hunch.

All I know for sure is my evil Shepard is going to be at a disadvantage. Destiny Ascension blown up, Rachni still extinct, maybe less geth help, Conrad Verner dead so can't use him as human shield, etc.

Good call, it would make sense for the reaper fleet to move on once earth's military is destroyed. They can always come back and om nom the civilian population once the fighting is over.

Actually. . . that makes me hope there are at least one or two truly bad endings. As in, not saving earth or not saving the galaxy. I'd like to see how that goes down.

Kudos to Bioware, they know how to put together one kickass trailer. They should show this in theatres.

It does make me wish the movie will be good enough to spawn a trilogy, culminating in something like this trailer on the big screen. But I know that's very unlikely.

It's not just EA or Maxis that does that. It seems like virtually every PC game will have serious problems with some hardware at release. You've got to wait for a few patches to minimize that happening, then buy from a store with a decent return policy.

Funny I just a couple of days ago started playing IWD from GOG. I'd missed it the first time around (but not BG/BG2, I still have the big collector edition box on my shelf).

If you also missed Planescape:Torment, you should play that next. It was fantastic.

It will be interesting to see what they come up with. It's hard to imagine that they will redo sprites or backgrounds. But that's all the game consists of visually. Of course, it would be awesome if they did make new per-rendered models for everything.

It's not like Team Fortress 2 where you have to do an insane amount of grinding to get good items without paying.

I didn't really have trouble unlocking stuff in TF2 at all. It seemed like I unlocked at least one item in every session. And if I already had that item, I could just disassemble it for parts and craft the items I wanted or just trade for them. I'll take TF2's unlockable system over BF3 or CoD's unlockable systems any day.

Well, mostly I meant the pace of unlocks is much quicker than TF2, which I found very slow.

But the mechanics aren't quite like any of those game. You don't have a set track like BF3 or CoD. But you also don't get the same item over and over again as you would in TF2. Aside from consumables, I don't think I've gotten the same item twice.

Not quite correct. Did you notice my reply about powering up the DLC assault rifle in their pay 2 win scheme (#1 in this thread)? Every extra code makes that weapon stronger in multiplayer. So to get maximum play 2 win powered up assault rifle, one would need to purchase multiple hardware items.

That's pretty retarded. The game doesn't have PvP but that still doesn't really excuse EA for letting players pay to win. Is there any way to upgrade the weapon without buying that stuff?

Having played the demo, you get +1 weapon powerups very frequently. After most matches you can afford a goodie box that most likely a random weapon upgrade. After 3 nights of play, I've unlocked maybe 7 new weapons, and the original ones are up to level 4 or 5.

It's not like Team Fortress 2 where you have to do an insane amount of grinding to get good items without paying. It's more like BF3 where doing the work yourself provides a constant stream of varied unlocks, a few of which could be unlocked early through promotional offers.
