I did go for the legs, mainlyx because I remembered one of the trailers showing that strategy. Unfortunately there were only 3 of us and there were just too many adds to keep fire focused on the walker. I ended up in a 4 person group that took one down yesterday....had a rocket launcher for that fight.

That has been my experience as well. Despite the PS4 being on a wireless connection I have had a really smooth gaming experience. Me and some randoms took on a walker today. My first time. We ran out of time....but damn it was close.

I am not a min/max player and I have not played for a month or 2....but can someone explain the logic behind only making these changes for level 70 weapons and not for all levels?

I see what they were trying to do with this. Not encouraging that they don't think they could have conveyed the same message with actual gameplay footage though.

It's been possible to get into the Russian open beta since February. Not that I'm suggesting anything.

I don't know anyone who has been either following this or in the alpha. Anybody here actually have hands-on experience with the game?

If all they do is make it look better on higher res screens, I am cool with that, particularly since I long since lost my copy. If they try to get cute and fuck with the actual game experience, I don't imagine that ending well.

LOL...thought this already launched. I just deleted the beta from my hard drive after having not tried it since the first week I had it.

I wrote this huge rant about Comcast. It was good, detailed, and accurate. I felt better after writing it seeing as I just had yet another huge dust up with them last week.

Ultimately, it didn't say anything you all don't already know so I deleted it from this post and smoked a joint.

Happy Monday all!

I keep meaning to check out Plex for a number of my devices. This just gives me another solid reason.

I might

So you're a REAL man then! Salute
Well obviously not because I can't seem to get into the game. Maybe it is just not for me, but it does peak my interest so maybe I should try harder

The one thing Civ games have always required is the patience to get through a first hour or so that can be REALLY slow and uneventful. That was my issue way back in the first game. I cured it by doing maps with maxed amounts of competing AIs and sometimes reducing the map size. Turning up the difficulty level is enough to pump some pace into a game sometimes as well.

This series is one of my favorites. If I could only have one game it would be a Civ game, probably Civ 4 despite my soft spot for the second game. I like Civ 5 well enough though and I can't wait for this new game. Beyond Earth is easily my most anticipated game on any platform. I liked Alpha Centauri so much I still keep it installed on my computer today. I only play it once in a blue moon but the fact that I get random cravings to play it this long after it's release says a lot.

The lack of an open world and the stripped down skill system is going to piss off fans of the original two games. It looks pretty and for people who want to be able to use a gamepad for their ARPGs it might actually be a ton of fun. As a fan of the original two I am disappointed because it would appear from the previews that the things that made Sacred "Sacred" are gone or are very streamlined. :-sadface-:

That actually looks like a bit of fun. I didn't donate, but I did go Greenlight it on Steam. I might go back and donate though, I just like to sleep on it before hitting the button.

Agreed, you can't boil entertainment down to a ratio. I do like to choose games with replay value just to make my dollar go a bit further now that I'm older but I would will drop $50 on a title that only offers 5 hours as long as its very memorable and fun.

Exactly. Gaming tastes are entirely too subjective for some kind of fixed ratio of hours/gameplay=purchase(?). Not only that, but gaming budgets vary wildly, making the value of the dollar somewhat subjective as well. Add into that the many working professionals that actually have more money for gaming than time for gaming. I personally will spend 150 bucks on a retail collector's edition of a game I know I will be playing extensively without even hesitating. I will than laugh uncontrollably at Activision when they are still pricing 4 year old COD games at 30 to 40 dollars for the digital download. My step-son sees 150 dollars for a game and says I am out of my mind. I see him buying COD #7568 at any price above 10 bucks and find myself asking his mother if he was dropped on his head as a child.

I find it hilarious that we make it so far in the biggest tournament for the world's biggest sport and somehow anyone would frame it as a failure. Is it disappointing that we lost? Sure. We weren't even supposed to make it out of the first round though. Just accomplishing that was a huge step forward for our team. Not because we haven't been past the first round, we have, but because of who we had to play to do it.

It's a huge accomplishment for the USA men's team to have made it as far as they did. Framing it in any other way just underlines how much less the sport is appreciated in this particular country. The other countries are talking about how impressive the Americans were while a great many Americans think that because we didn't win the Cup itself somehow we suck.

I understand not liking the sport and I understand having high expectations. I don't understand such a huge lack of perspective. The entire world is impressed with our efforts. Only one team can win the Cup and we were eliminated by a great team.

It should be "4 ways the old white guys people in charge of networks are killing themselves by refusing to adapt and overcome."

Seriously.

Edited because Bonnie Hammer single-handedly ruined Sci-Fi.

I was going to say something similar. If the viewing habits of the target audience are changing it is on the content provider to adapt.

18. Re: Planetary Annihilation Early Access Spotted at Retail Jun 30, 2014, 13:44 Jivaro
 
In theory this shouldn't be any different than digital early access.

In practice however, I am fairly certain that expecting the mainstream to see a retail box and understand exactly what they are purchasing without having read all the information on a web site, forum, etc is optimistic at best. This has "bad idea" stamped right across the front of the box.
