We've got nothing to F.E.A.R. -- but F.E.A.R. itself
Not pain or failure, not fatal tragedy
Not the faulty units in this mad machinery
Not the broken contacts in emotional chemistry..........

This would be cool.

I'm wondering how many hours it would take to walk from S to N on the map, in first person.

I'm a little skeptical of it (them delivering it), but I'd love to see it happen...

Yeah...I'm hoping it is 'a la' Fallout 3 where you switch back and forth and zoom in/out. It will be interesting to see if they implement it.

Unless internet providers change their evil ways this is dead on arrival. Way too many providers impose bandwidth caps that are insanely limited and now they want to put speed caps on your data as well essentially throttling you dependent on the content you want to access.

Good luck getting your game streaming service off the ground in such a hostile consumer unfriendly environment that the internet is quickly eroding into.

Very good point(s) DangerDog; it could be the silver lining in thwarting the OnLive BS.

Cell phone companies and cable/satellite companies have become too big, as there is not enough 'true' competition, but when there is the just get lapped up by the big boys.

Looking back at how games' electronic media distribution has evolved from 5.25" Floppies disks, to 3.5" diskettes, to CD-ROM, to DVD, and now the current state of direct download, then this 'may' be something that will 'eventually' become the standard. But, as an old schooler, I admit that I find it difficult to even consider because it is another step towards reduced 'ownership'. If your internet connection goes down, will you be able to play a local copy? I think not. All but a ~1/2 dozen of the games I 'own' are a tangible copy; regardless, if Steam is down, or my internet connection goes down, at least now I can still play in 'Offline Mode'.

I suppose I am never growing up. I played Wasteland in 88-89 on an Apple II+ in an open squad bay barracks in Okinawa, Japan. Now years later its Friday and only 8 minutes till Steam finishes downloading and I feel like its Christmas day! I am an old dude who has gone back to school for Computer Science and I have today off and should be working on stuff due Monday but I will be playing Wasteland 2 all weekend instead!

Peace

Glad to see you have your priorities in order sir!

Meh.....it looks like another uninspired AAA QTE game where the marketing of it will be better than the actual game.


This is not a QTE game, You can watch practically all of chapter 4 and 8 on Youtube and there is nary a QTE.

This is a survival horror game from the creator of the survival horror genre.

As a matter of fact here is some PC footage of gameplay,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPeM1JUc8pk

He was playing the game on easy I believe, the game will definitely be challenging.

Thanks for info. The two trailers (this one and another a while back) I watched didn't showcase the game in a very positive light. I'll still wait a year and 'maybe' pick it up on Amazon in 18 months or so at less than half the release price. Again, I predict the marketing of the game, as most as of late, will be better than the actual game itself.

Cheers

Wow, I thought my old binds (back in Quake 1 days I think) were wacky, but Bats yours are even more wacky then mine were.

I eventually conformed with default bindings, with a little tweaking here and there, depending on the game, because I realized everything was pretty well centralized.

Definitely Invert Mouse.

W - Forward
S - Backward
A - Strafe left
D - Strafe right
Q - Lean Left
E - Lean Right
R - Reload

LMB - Fire
RMB - Alt. Fire/Scope

SPACE - Jump
CTRL or C - Crouch - depends on game and amount of different bindings.
Z - Prone
E or RM Thumb Button - USE/OPEN
F - Flashlight

That is pretty much it. Overall my binds are the same, but with some tweaking here and there depending on the game.

@ jdreyer: I haven't played State of Decay, so I can't compare. The only thing I could suggest is to watch some LPs (SP & MP) on versions 9.1+. I can say, that with the crafting, the ever expanding 'RandomGen' mapping, etc., I would be surprised if you got bored.

If you end up picking it up, let me know how you like it.

#6 - 7 Ways to Die, I believe that is a typo, as it should be 7 Days to Die.

I'm surprised we don't see 7 Days to Die in the 'Top 10' more often. This is a developer that not only continues to fix minor bugs here and there, but continues to enhance the game; the game just continues to improve and impress with each alpha release, and there is much more additions/improvements on the their (The Fun Pimps) roadmap. These guys (The Fun Pimps) are top notch.

For those of you that have the game and haven't played it lately, it is worth checking out the newly implemented smooth terrain (no more blocky terrain), random-gen-never-ending-maps, improved crafting, etc.

I have gotten, and continue to get, a lot of fun/mileage out of this game and always look forward to their next alpha release with more new goodies and fun.
