I think the refunds should be offered to everyone, not just people who haven't played yet. They failed to deliver on what I understand is a promised feature, and that means the ethical thing to do would be to offer everyone who wants one a refund. I played Planetary Annhilation online when it was Early Access because it was the opnly way to try out the game so I could give my feedback, but the only reason I backed it was because of the promised offline mode. I assume that would be the case with some people who were in the Beta. They are burning up a lot of their trust with gamers.

I kind of feel that kickstarters should get a refund opportunity period, since beta was free.

But if you paid a premium for the beta, which I did, that was to participate in the beta process. Even if the end product isn't something that meets it's promises, you got your beta money's worth and there's no reason why you should get that refunded.

I didn't hear about the KS until when the beta released, so when I read that the KS promised offline mode, I paid in for the PB. I bought the game mainly for offline mode since where I live in the sticks, I barely have a solid connection most of the time with the local ISP. So, yeah, I feel I was lied to knowing an offline mode was promised.

Also, I have no played the game since the end of May. One other time I tried, my inet connection went down and other, offline games took over from there. I was holding out for that offline mode to pick it up again.

No, but I remember playing Defender of the Crown and screaming at my C64 whenever I'd lose the sword fight (and thus failing to see the damsel strip off her clothes). Good times.

I don't think I ever won a jousting match in that game.

Borderlands is a pretty safe preorder, at least you know what you're getting.

Yeah, but not for that price. I can wait with a library of other things out now and with Far Cry 4 and Assassin's Creed 5 on the horizon.

Gal Civ 3 for $99 early access now that is just down right crazy!

Keep in mind for that price that you get all future dlc and expansions for free. The high price is more like buying the game and a complete season pass. If they follow through their promise to release Dark Avatar/Arnor style expansions plus smaller DLC you'll be breaking even or possibly saving money in the long run.

"If" being the key word.

Or you just wait until next years steam summer sale so that you can save money with guarantee There is no reason to pre-order games.

Unless you actually want to play them and they're EA

I stay away from Stardock games.

They may have once been a good developer, but no longer.

Well, you should try Elemental Fallen Heroes if you haven't. They did a good job with that and continue to update it.

and die-hard Sidewinder fans may be offended to hear them refer to this as "the best PC controller Microsoft has ever produced."

Which Sidewinder controller? there were many different models.

The big update is just the sheer scope. Galciv 2 could handle a few thousand "actors" (ships, planets, space stations, rebels, etc) in its engine before it would crap out. This engine is solely 64 bit, and built from the ground up to handle hundreds of thousands of actors. So the entire scope of the game will increase by an incredible amount.

Other than having actual combat, what really needed dramatic overhauls or improvements in Galciv2? It was already pretty darn great.

Creston, have you tried Distant Worlds: Universe? If not, get it right the fuck now! I think you might fall in love with it.

Star Ruler 2 is in early access and is good and getting better.

Turned based combat and pretty much Civilization in space, not my kind of fun. I'm hoping they make Sins 2. but I'm not holding my breath.

Not exactly like Civ. You can't build characters in Civ like you can starships in Gal Civ.

This brought me back to Interstate 76 which obviously isn't the same type of game. But man, I wish they would put out a new version of I-76 with modern graphics. Loved that game!

Thanks for the explanation. I'll have to try it out again. Any good websites discussing builds? I've always been fond of ranged characters.

The other thing is to actually port (*gulp*) the existing games over to make them playable. Kubuntu didn't stay long on my laptop because out of the nearly 700 games, I maybe had 100 that would run on Linux. If they can expand that even more, I'd probably switch an not look back. That and make it easier to get Steam running on OpenSuse. Really like the layout/feel of that distro.

I honestly don't see all of the praise with this game. I found it dull and slow to start with and unlike the Reaper of Souls, it never grabbed me. Maybe this expansion will do something for me as it does sound cool with the masters they are adding.

Fun game but I'm still waiting for a proper sequel with MUCH needed multi-core support.

That Star Trek mod for it is pretty great though. As long as you don't let the Borg get out of control. F'ing Borg.

Which one? Isn't there like 2 or 3 mods?

This was a cancelled Kickstarter from awhile back. Too bad it did not get funded but I'm glad they got some alternate funding!

I could care less honestly..just don't understand why anyone gives a flying flip that a female isn't in a game....esp. since there was a playable female character earlier.

So why aren't people bitching at the countless thousands of other games that don't have a playable female character?

Far Cry 3 had co-op as well, but it was a separate part of the game. Unless they specifically say "Campaign Co-op", I will believe it's a bullshit side-game. SO many games tossed out "co-op!" on the package, only to find it meant something different from expected.

Saint's Row got it right, and improved from one game to the next, to where you almost NEED a second player for SR4.

Anyway, they confirm this is campaign co-op, it'll be the first game I've bought day-one in years.

Uh, in the E3 video they specifically said "Drop in coop"

I believe they also mentioned sandbox co-op and not campaign-level.
