The dude had a shot at System Shock and made Bioshock. Why do you want him involved?

This. I thought Bioshock was nothing like System Shock, all the great game elements of SS were missing or dumbed down beyond recognition. Not really hopeful its SS anyway.

Yeah, it blows my mind that those who loved System Shock would want more of Bioshock instead! It's a completely different game. As for rating Bioshock by itself, it's boring. The game is basically a linear call of duty with shitty combat and some weapons that aren't guns. The story was somewhat interesting, but I was so bored that I couldn't even finish the game(yes I know all about the twists). Bioshock infinite was the exact same game, but I liked the story slightly better, so I was at least able to finish it, but man, the gameplay sucks.

I don't want Ken to do a System Shock. I want open levels, rpg elements, customization and choices!

This game like most techland games will be nothing but a pile of mediocre shit. Seriously don't get how these clowns are in business, they haven't made anything good. Dead Island was fucking garbage, why expect anything different this time?

I loved Dead Island. It's one of the best zombie games I've ever played.

I bought H1Z1 because I was so desperate to play a DayZ game that didn't have an atrocious interface. The game is much smoother, but the only thing there is to do is walk around and open empty container after empty container. I've looted well over 500+ things, and all I have to show for it is a couple pair of goggles.

How frickin hard is it to make this type of game that doesn't suck?! Every other genre has games that don't suck, but this genre can't manage a single one.

Well, there's a place to find all the things you could ever want! The Microtransaction store! Just order an airdrop, be the first one there, and voila! Tons of items!

I strongly suggest you try out 7 days to die. Best game of that type.

Only way I can see this being fun for the non-captain is if they're the engineer solving a cross between pipemania and tetris to reroute power as needed.

That's sort of what I'm looking for - that and just running around in general putting out fires in the middle of a battle. I'm actually more looking forward to being an engineer on my friend's capital ship than piloting anything myself, in particular for the larger frigates and such that can carry their own fighters - managing parts inventory, keeping fighter launch operations going, running damage control, and helping to fight off the occasional boarding team in this big dynamic resource-driven universe is exactly the kind of gameplay I want.

Assuming it all works as advertised - which, who knows. We'll have to see.

As far as I know, they never promised gameplay close to what you guys are expecting.

I watched the presentation. Basically it felt like they were trying to sell xboxes. At least the new changes seem relatively easy to ignore, so they didn't completely break gaming.

Nothing. It's not as good as Steam, but who can be? Steam has had a lot more time to better itself. People need to realize that we need Steam competitors if we want to keep seeing good prices.

Hasn't really been an issue so far. I agree in principle though.

Steam is a bit of an outlier since its not beholden to public shareholders.

I personally think that the deals are worse than they were a couple of years ago. I actually rarely buy games on Steam because the prices are too high. I get 90% of my games from Green Man Gaming. It's usually cheaper.

Shame it's on Origin.

They should change their slogan (do they have one?) to "Origin. Not Even Once."

Aside from it not being Steam what's wrong with Origin?

Dunno, these specs seem resonable to me.
The delay sucks, but it'll give me time to play Dragon Age, so I can't say I'm too mad. Better this than to release a buggier game.

The Witcher 2 was/is an incredibly good looking game. The amount of detail was crazy. 6 GB seems pretty reasonable.

From what I understand, right now, it's only a competitive shooter with loadouts and microtransactions. Their idea is to make enough profit from it to work on the open world/survival/pve game.

Nice title Blue...

I picked up the remake a while back, and really did not enjoy it at all. Controls, mouse movement, it just felt off. Is it worth picking up the original?

I liked the original better. With that said, I doubt you'll enjoy it if it wasn't one of your childhood games.

Yher. not that they have made a single PC port that wasnt garbage performance wise. :-(


Thought people said the last Max Payne was decent?
Yeah, MP3 was fine in that department... but GTAIV... oh man, oh god

I HATED the controls in MP3. Overly complicated and weird as hell. The rest was solid though.

Good decision. You may not like the game, but freedom of speech should prevail.
I want my rape sim games on Steam!!
Tentacle Simulator 2015 almost made it onto Steam but got voted down!

Postal 2 is one of the best shooters I've played. Open world with tons of interactivity and one of the first games with havok physics. It's also incredibly obscene. I still haven't murdered anybody. If the game is fun(and I have time...), I'll play it.

In reality, it works the other way around. Poisoned minds tend to gravitate toward media that appeals to them. Media doesn't turn healthy people into murderers.
Exactly.
I've been playing violent video games since I was 7 and watching (as fucking stupid as it sounds nowadays considered) violent cartoons like Tom and Jerry or Bugs Bunny as I was growing up, but never ever considered picking up a gun and go on a shooting spree in real life. Even though I was bullied in high school for years.

Maybe I am the exception not the rule but I personally don't see how a movie or a video game can turn a normal person into a murderer.

Same. Played violent games and watched violent movies all my life. It's rare to find a person as peaceful as me. Violence is never the answer to solve problems in my life.

I usually love sandbox games, but there are some that I don't like because they're too empty and aimless. To me so far, it seems like the latter.

First review confirms my fears IncGamers review

I think it's a complement to the game that it leaves you wanting more, as it is in its current form I think it represents what the initial goal was which was to create an updated version of Elite.

Even in the unlikely event that they just continue to fix bugs and hold off on adding more content there's more than enough of a game here to enjoy for quite a long time.

Perhaps it's down to some people mentally adding up all the grandiose promises of Star Citizen and comparing them to Elite that are not satisfied with what's on offer, Star Citizen is still just an idea and Elite Dangerous is a game you can play today.

In my case it has nothing to do with Star Citizen. Some sandbox games just don't keep my interest. But I can't help comparing Elite to Freelancer, which is what I use as a gold standard for a coop space sandbox.
