Does anyone actually care for the single player "story" in a Battlefield game?
I thought most people buys BF for the MP.

In the literal sense, I think you are right. "Most" people do buy Battlefield games for the MP. I think the more important question however is "Do enough people play single player or care about the story to develop a Battlefield title specifically with those elements in mind?". I think the answer to that is also yes. I could be wrong obviously, but I am inclined to believe that there is more then enough people who would buy and play another Bad Company game to make it worth the cost of development from a business perspective.

The fix for the concurrent user issue on PS3 was fixed on the server side, not the client. The firmware update was your standard Tuesday patch.

The PS3/PSN update (4.50) was about a bunch of other stuff, for example:

"The PS3 will no longer limit automatic firmware downloads to PlayStation Plus subscribers, a definite plus for non-paid PlayStation Network users. What's more, version 4.50 also brings additional privacy settings to trophies and the ability to transfer data from the PS3 to PS Vita via a WiFi connection."

News Comments > Deus Ex Universe and New DX Game Revealed
5. Re: Deus Ex Universe and New DX Game Revealed Oct 2, 2013, 14:30 Jivaro
 
To me this is cool. I have been assuming that they were waiting on the next-gen consoles for another Deus Ex game. As for the MMO...well, I do like the genre which makes me more optimistic about the idea. I like already being familiar with the "universe" when I start a MMO as well. That said, I can't blame anyone who would cynical about such a game....it isn't like MMOs have been a bastion of creativity and promise fulfillment lately.

And that's a bullshit line Jivaro, I could care less what you all play.
And yet you cared enough to not just reply, but attack me when doing so.

My argument is about the pricing and how many of you swing on both sides of the fence when it suits your cause. Many of you sit here and claim pricing is everything, so when a game does go one sale for a very reasonable price and someone then calls you out because you are now bitching about the price. Well that just makes many of you look stupid and like your trolling. That was my complaint
I have never complained about game prices as a whole and lumping me into a whatever group of people you are referring to that have is irrational and inaccurate. I made an obvious, and rather innocent, joke about the game's quality. Nothing more, nothing less. I have certainly never claimed that pricing is everything.

Otherwise I could care less if you jumped off a cliff.
Kill myself? Really? None of this seems at all like overreacting to you?

wow.

News Comments > Star Citizen Passes $20M
36. Re: Star Citizen Passes $20M Sep 27, 2013, 16:29 Jivaro
 
I was wondering why the money keeps trickling in as well, and then I had this really random experience. My youngest step-daughter turned 21 last week. (I know...) At her dinner party her older sister turns to me and says "Have you seen that Star Citizen game?" My jaw hit the floor. She plays some Zelda and Mario, but I have never known her to really keep up on anything gaming related. Turns out her boyfriend showed the hangar to her...an hour later she had put some money in. Her boyfriend plays CoD and Battlefield, that is literally all of his games. The fact that he knew about this game was shocking. The fact that he is now going to buy a new PC just to play it blows my mind. He says he has a bunch of friends that are doing the same thing. I feel like I woke up in an alternate reality or something.

I also find myself remembering back to the days when Flight Simulator ruled the world. When I was 19 or so I remember all these older guys with their full setups on a computer that was meant to do one thing, simulate flying an aircraft. Those setups cost big bucks but people were willing to pay for it. This is starting to remind me of that as well. I mean some of us here, myself included, have already started talking sticks etc.

I find the skepticism healthy, even if it is getting a bit repetitive. I understand it it anyway. The hype is tremendous and I think a lot of us have gotten to a point where we just expect this industry to kick us in the balls. Still, I myself am going to go ahead and let myself go full fanboy. I apologize ahead of time if I squee or gush all over any future threads.

Don't feel too bad, 37% of our league had the Rams.

I think that is because 37% of our league, myself included, forgot to make their picks before the game. The "experts" picked the Rams, so if you didn't choose, that is what it defaulted to I think.

When you start off like that Darks, people have a habit of not reading, or caring, about what comes after it.

I thought the A:CM thing was a one game thing, apparently your whole attitude is that if you like a game everyone else must like it or there is something wrong with them. It is like history is repeating itself or something...

Dead Island is not original in any way, it is boring, and the gameplay mechanics suck. The story sucks. There is literally nothing positive about the game. It is worth exactly zero dollars. On sale for 10 cents I would not buy it because a gum ball would be more fun to chew. As I said previously, if you like it I am happy for you...have it. I think playing the game is a waste of time and paying for it is a waste of money.

66% off isn't enough.

Why not? Are you cheap or something?

Wow, that escalated quickly. The game is terrible. Glad you liked it, no reason to attack me for not liking it.

Looks like an entertaining game I might pick up if the reviews are good. probably not until a good sale though.

It does not however look anything like a Thief game. I have no idea why they don't just start a new franchise instead of doing crap like this. I see a sales failure like Syndicate incoming...but hey...maybe I will be wrong.

lol..funny story..

I was reading your post just now Nin and I noticed that my wife was reading the thread over my shoulder as I started to type this response. She said, and I quote, "Well that explains it. You are okay with it because you are tacky and everyone else is pissed because they aren't. You have always been tacky."

So..um...yeah....what she said.

From the time I backed this I have thought that this is the way it would go down. It was my interpretation of what they wrote at the time. I just assumed that I would get the base game with my pledge but that if any extra content was added I would have to pay for it. I assumed that because I don't recall my pledge description saying anything about additional content being included even though they had said they would be releasing more content after the game was released.

That said;

"If we reach our Kickstarter target of $400,000, we'll be able to deliver the first release of Carmageddon: Reincarnation by February 2013. Following that, our backers will get every update of the game as it's released, for FREE. You get it all for the minimum “get the game” pledge of $15."

Now that I re-read it, with the comments you have linked, I see where the frustration is coming from. For me, I read that same paragraph at the time it was written and understood it differently. I am not going to pretend I don't see where the problem is though. Turning out to be quite the mess I guess. For me personally I have been, and continue to be, looking forward to the game. I can't realistically look at 15 bucks as somehow a "get everything for the rest of my life for free" amount of money. I do understand why some people thought that was the deal however.
