What is Wasteland 2 going to retail for on release?

End of August I've heard? something like that. It will be less than $60 however, non deluxe. I'm holding off until release. I simply don't want to start it early.

EDIT: I'll answer your question now; Most rumors put basic non-deluxe at $40.00. Late backer full copies were $35. So no less than that.

C'mon Cuts, your Minecraft hate only comes across as jealousy. Also, there's no such thing as an in-crowd.

And everything else you have to say is invalid after that statement.

you just don't offer any valid criticism of the game other than saying its a social alienation or he can go along with the crowd. Then when someone asks him about it it gives him a sense of validation and self-importance. And the cycle continues.

I'll just leave this here on my way out....
Conformity


sometimes something is just good and reaches a wider audience than originally anticipated.

you just don't offer any valid criticism of the game other than saying its a bandwagon affair. Newsflash, most popular things start off as a bandwagon, but Minecraft has absolutely transcended all boundaries. Like I said, (you read it) it's a cultural phenomenon. It reaches almost everyone now. This in-crowd of which you speak, is almost everyone but you. the "in-crowd" is just phrase used to disparage something.

Well, when a thing gets popular enough it becomes self-fufilling. Look at Pet Rocks, the guy sold millions of those. Remember the riots in the stores at Xmas in the 80s when people couldn't get Cabbage Patch Kids? Minecraft is simply something people have to have to be part of the in-crowd. Like all theses sorts of one offs it's a fluke. Still, would be nice to have that kind of luck because you only need it once.


C'mon Cuts, your Minecraft hate only comes across as jealousy. Also, there's no such thing as an in-crowd.

Minecraft is a phenomenon the size of, if not bigger, than Mario. Almost all games up to the middle 2000's were really based on some variation of the Mario theme. skill based gameplay where the game presented everything you needed to enjoy it. Devs grew up playing it and that's what they made.

Imagine the kind of games that will come from devs where Minecraft is the base. Imagination, immersion, created your own fun. I love it. If you don't like Minecraft style of games, you better get off at the next station, because that's where this train is heading.

...one of the few times a world war game has acknowledged a German as a human being...

A human being that had full knowledge of the fact that their government was mass-exterminating Jews, Roma, homosexuals, the handicapped, and any other group of people that didn't fit into their eugenic insanity of creating a master race? Are those the people that you are worried about as not being portrayed with "humanity" and "compassion"? There's a terribly small violin playing somewhere, but for the life of my I just can't seem to hear it over the sound of wailing in the death camps.

Wrong war there professor. You're thinking of World War II not I. A war that happened 30 years in the future. By the way how much the average German knew and how much the rank and file enlisted soldier knew is a debated topic, with lots of variations according to where they were stationed and where they lived.

The same people who fought in WWI were the people who sat by while their neighbors were rounded up in cattle cars 20 years later. This idea of portraying early 20th century Germans as anything other than the shitheads they were is historical revisionism at its best. But let's disregard the fact that these guys were the ones that developed weaponized chlorine gas to use on the battlefield, and instead romanticize history and show how this one guy didn't actually want to fight.

Guess how many French/British/Serbian etc... didn't want to fight but didn't have any choice when the Germans decided to come trotting into their countries?


Fitting user name there dude, but just relax, chill out, it was a long time ago. While some germans at the time were jerks and asses, you cant blame all of them for the mistakes, they were in both wars under an oppressive goverment.

You my friend need to bush up on your world history. The support for both wars from the German citizenry was extremely high until they started losing.

you have to be careful with putting too much blame on the people of a country as a whole. One of the lessons of the aftermath of WWI was that placing severe sanctions on Germany after the war was partly responsible for creating conditions that led to the rise of the National Socialists.

The only difference between Ben's articles and a Gamefaqs post these days is that he runs a spell check.
Hey now, Ben is one of the better writers of this era. And in this specific case he's 110% correct.

haha whatever - this dude is a massive fucking toolbag... every "article" he writes is like "its time for everyone to do this" and "nobody should ever do this" and "i will speak for everyone now" blah blah blah..

hes a chump

So he's a click generator. Sounds like he's doing his job just fine. Some of his work is better than others. This one is on the low end.

Well it was a kickstarter project, which for games on kickstarter not having a publisher is pretty much the gist of the entire thing...
Yes I know but not all kickstarter games make it.
I am just glad he was able to stick to his guns and not getting any publishers involved and get the game founded.

Beta 2 comes out tomorrow.

Nice, cant wait to hear about it! I really really want to play, but the price is a barrier for me. Waiting for release anxiously

What he said. I might have to splurge on the $75 beta. This game just looks so... relaxing. You know, just floating thru space, nary a care.

Although I'm not a huge fan, I don't think soccer is any more sketchy than any other professional sport. Personally, I'd equate it to baseball, long periods of boredom with brief stretches of excitement.

For US fans, Portugal's second goal in the last 30 seconds of added time was painful to say the least. I don't think the US is up to beating Germany, so our best hope is a draw in both group matches which would get us in on goal differential (assuming I understand the scoring correctly).

The best possible result for both USA and Germany is a draw, because that puts them both at 5 points, while Portugal and Ghana can't get 5 points even with a win. The US will still probably advance as long as they don't get blown out, or Ghana and Portugal keep it close.

Fuckyahhh! Skyrim. I seriously hope they make another single player in this line as I've no interest in MMOs. The game has certainly kept on selling.

Fus Ro Dah!

No worries there. Sold like 20 million copies. I think only GTA IV and V sold more. The only real question is if Fallout 4 drops before the next TES.

not surprised. They've never even made a game that I would consider anything more than above average. And it's not like they've ever blown the roof off in selling the decent ones.

$60 million stretch goal. Cloud Imperium buys Crytek.

Wasteland 2 early access up as a $40 buy on the Steam Sale. Not sure how I feel about that. It's only going to cost $40 when it's done, right? $30?

sucker is cramped on a ipad mini. shit, 7" 16:9 display might be too small for FTL.

Do you rest it in your lap so you can keep a firm grip on your stick?

Biker

I wasn't aware that keeping your hand off your stick whist at the computer was even an option. What's next? People wearing pants while playing video games? I can't imagine that kind of hell.

I like the face you can have it in one piece or two, but I've not fired up Elite yet...


Thats pretty cool, i had no idea you could separate them in that unit.

Neither did I. I was totally going to splurge on the x52, but at half the price, this one looks like it. All this stuff makes me want to drop the bread on an Oculus DK2. must RESIST!

So, one guy coded the whole thing and then they killed him. Then the whole thing loaded onto a specialized flash drive that blows up after a single read.

Those XB1 numbers are getting pretty bad, outsold by the 3DS. That $399 SKU better turn things around for them.

I doubt it. They'll have an even harder time convincing people that it can do more out of the box than a PS4 with the Kinect jettisoned. Now it's an apples to apples comparison, and lesser performance at the same price point will be difficult to ignore. That is, if people care to look into the specs at all.
I think MS will announce another SKU this year without the BR drive. They should price it 350 with XBL gold credit or even 300 to get back on their feet.

We won't see a new xbox or $300 dollar price until mid-2015, if I had to guess, or whenever they can shrink the SOC to 20nm with decent yields. The only SKU I'm waiting for is the PS4/XBone with improved storage bandwidth. I'm shocked that both are only SATA II. It's barely worth putting a SSD in these things, not to mention the horrid laptop hard drives in them already.
