Personally I have no idea, I think its this new Game Recession era that came from people paying up hundreds in so called "free"2play games. As far as shaceship Starcitizen game, a lot of folks are older people that have lots of disposable income... but still I would never pay 600 bucks ever for a virtual item and never have. I think people forgot what games used to be like - Pay 60 bucks for space game - tons of ships on the disk that you get in-game or mod in yourself.

Yep this - back in the day (and god i hate usin that term but it's true) - you'd buy the game and have access to the entire game. This purchasing of ships in a game not even built is beyond a joke.

I hope there's marketing textbooks being updated with Star Citizen as a case study because christ, they deserve a medal for the amount of dollars they're drawing out of pockets. I haven't spent a dime on it because frankly, i find the whole endeavour disturbing. I also firmly feel that even a game handcrafted by god himself couldnt rival the game that a greater portion of the backers envision in their mind. I for one wouldnt like to be Chris Roberts - sure the guy is creative, and I've thoroughly enjoyed some of his earlier titles - but the pressure to deliver with Star Citizen? That has to keep anyone at such a helm, up at night.

There's no way this game is living up to its hype. No way known. I hope it does, i hope it surprises at every turn, but i cant remotely see it.

And ships selling for $600 each? Who the hell are buying these? I honestly cant believe the hysteria around this title. I know of several people who've dropped up to and above a thousand bucks on this. Buying ships like it actually means something. Where's the value? Where the FUCK is the value in buying ships - not just a ship, shipS, in a game that's not even completed? Just how many ships do people plan on piloting? One for each day of the week like a fresh pair of socks?

Perhaps money lost it's value somewhere along the line. I work hard and am paid reasonably, but $600 is a lot of money - not something i'd ever consider plonking on a fucking spaceship in a computer game that's not even close to completed. To think, there's people starving out there, while people are spending $600 on an unreleased games spaceships. I can only lol, lol and double facepalm.

So, technically, with Lucasfilm now saying Epi 1-6 + Clone Wars (and now Rebels) only being canon...

None of this shit happened...



That's a really big shame. Clone Wars and unmasking Boba Fett as an Australian human .

Erm - New Zealander thanks.

It's an amazing game. It has its problems, but its nowhere near as bad as some of the naysayers will make out. The proof is in the fact you cant stop playing once connected.

Not to mention a lot of free players coming in today have been incorrectly marked as patrons - aka screwing over the queue advantage real patrons get.

It's going to be a free to play arena style game isnt it? They already talked about this a while back - where players could customise their armies from different time periods and go head to head against..well other time periods. Like a Samurai army vs Knights or some such.

That's what i thought they were alluding too - and its name was something Arena.

Most people who are frothing over how good this is, buy ALL new MMO's and usually move on from them several weeks later. This is no difference.

I didn't think the game was terrible, but it certainly wasn't different from at least 5 other titles that have come and gone with similar fanfare.

Well, nothing like releasing a game 6 months early.
Welcome to the land of publisher rush.

It’s not so much this, but games these days being released in perpetual states of incompletion. With kickstarter and similar, we’re now buying games that are alpha or even earlier – and the kicker is, I don’t think many consumers even have any idea what stage a game is at. And you cant blame them.

When you see an absolute piece of crap like Godus showing up on steam sales…why the hell would an incomplete work in progress even be eligible for those kind of sales? It’s confusing to the consumers. You can never truly be sure if your game is complete – then you have games like Rome 2 that are complete – supposedly, but release in a state so broken that it takes 10+ patches to correct it.

It’s not good at all.

This is true, but you have a choice, whether it be KS, Early Access, or regular releases. You can wait, see, read some reviews, and listen to word of mouth. Yes, it means not playing the second it's available, but even waiting a day or two can give you the info you need.

My point is that these work in progresses are making their way into mainstream sale sites such as steam to the point where you're never really sure what you're buying these days. Yes you can research it, but you shouldn't have to.

If anyone is into history, i recommend checking out dan carlins hardcore history podcast 'punic nightmares' 1-3 . As for Rome2, i was upset from preordering it, but the state of the game today has me satisfied.

Yep Dan Carlin's is awesome. He also has a 5 part series on Rome - leading up to Julius Ceasar forming the empire - highly reccomended listen. (Sorry i forget the name of them)

To be fair, the game is in a pretty good state these days - not perfect, but not broken - however it has taken 10...yes _10_ sizeable patches to get it to this point. I pre-ordered it originally and still feel dirty from having done so. The fact it's taken so much work post-release to fix it (and it's still not completely fixed mind you) is an absolute disgrace.

I love Total War, but i'd rather give my own nuts a walloping with a hammer before preordering from them again.

Planetside 2 feels better than ever these days. With the terrain/base enhancements across Indar and Esamir (still working on Amerish) and the recent performance update, the game is fantastic and easy to reccomend.

There's not a game on this planet that I would spend $500 on.

I'm sure if it exceeds expectations and is awesome, i'll enjoy it every bit as much with my eventual purchase - which i suspect will be around the 50-60.00 mark. There's simply nothing game related that can justify paying 500+ in my opinion.

The sequel to TA was Sup Commander IMO. I'm not sure how you can actually get more 'TA sqeuely' than that. Stinks of someone grasping for original ideas.

News Comments > Total War: ROME II Beta Patch
6. Re: Total War: ROME II Beta Patch Oct 6, 2013, 18:14 Deepjay
 
I've been playing it solidly since release and can confirm that the release version was absolute crap.

There's since been 4 patches, all of which went through a brief beta process. Patch 1 was just a few hotfixes, but patches 2, 3 and now 4 have all made considerable progress towards fixing the game.

Patch 3 wasnt perfect, but put the game to a state which would have been fine for release IMO. Patch 4 I have since started a new campaign and it's definitely challenging. Patch 3 for the record was likewise very challenging - finally. Release day Rome 2 was a joke. Yes we know that CA have a history of releasing titles in bad shape, but Rome 2 takes the cake. In many instances, it's a clear step down from Shogun 2 as well - how it could go from Shogun 2's attention to detail and polish down to Rome 2 is simply bizarre.

Anyway, on the back of this current patch 4, i'd reccomend the game now. It still needs work, specifically siege AI (ie the AI to my knowledge still doesnt use siege engines, just burns down a single door) and a few other things.

I'm cynical and I think this game is so hyped that people are going to be disappointed because it cannot possibly live up to expectation. I hope to be proven wrong however.

Yep I completely agree with you. The hype for this has been insane. I can't believe how much money some people have been dropping on it hoping all their dreams can come true. While I too hope we have an amazing game on the other side, how often is something so hyped actually meeting fan expectations?

And that's the main point. People's expectations and the actual finished products are often two different things.
