Paying to not own a game is not something I want to do. I get it that some people might be okay with it, it just isn't my thing. Even if this was a company I actually trust and not EA I would feel exactly the same.

I recognize that eventually I will probably be without options though. Sadly.

I sat here for 10 minutes trying to find something to bitch about. Sadly, I can not think of anything related to this topic or thread to bitch about, nor did I have anything better to do with that 10 minutes. I will therefore bitch about not being able to bitch about anything. Well, I would except that now I have something else to go do. Just pretend I found something useless to bitch about and imagine what that would have looked like. Or reread this post. Either way.

NIS America flaking on their sponsorship is unfortunately something that happens to all event organizers eventually....particularly those that collect their money after the event has occurred. (I am not saying it's okay, I am just saying that shit happens) I think the bigger and better story is what Devolver Digital and other indie developers have done since this story went public. Those people stepping up and putting up their own money to make sure this event gets it's funding is not something that an event organizer can expect to happen. Ever. Well played folks.

They sent me (and I am assuming others) an email asking for a survey to be completed because I beta tested the game but did not choose to play after launch or purchase the game.

It was in my email box for 20 minutes before I clicked the link to fill out the survey. The survey had already been closed by the time I did it. Either their survey is screwed up or they had PLENTY of people willing to tell them why they didn't play the game.

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

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.

They could have Woody Harrelson play the Thief. He can't jump either.
