But I tried to get into Skyrim 2-3 times and never got far. I think it's because of the procedurally generated cookie-cutter missions.

what? are you thinking of daggerfall? yeh that was 20 years ago

nothing in skyrim is procedurally generated

My only complaint is that the story is so patchy it's pretty much worthless. I beat all of the missions and strikes, read all the online stuff on my Destiny app, and still really have no idea what is going on. Darkness coming for us all, blah blah blah. If all the bad guys work for the darkness, why do they all fight each other?

according to someone bitching about the writing/story:

The Vex are “Evil so dark it despises other evil.”

so yeh... they thought of that!! they got you covered, man

Anyone know what's coming up here? Like a roadmap? Is it worth waiting for some of the content updates (if there are any) since they might already be close?

i dont know of any DLC planned.. but they did split the dev team to make w2 and torment, which is still in production - so presumably most of the wasteland crew will be shifting over to that

probly keep some guys on for patches and whatever, but i doubt DLC will be coming anytime soon.. altho i wouldnt be surprised if some rolled in around early next year or something

It also depends on what games you play and what resolutions obviously. If you're just running at 1080p you don't need any of this stuff, its complete overkill.
I run at 1080p with at least 2xAA with a 570 but don't get 60fps in newer titles.
You're suggesting the 970 is an overkill upgrade?

its pretty silly to generalize that much.. there are so many variables that would make it worthwhile upgrade

maybe its complete overkill for YOU.. but you arent everyone in the entire world

Steam reviews paint an over-promised and an under-delivered picture.

Anyone care to share their thoughts?

how old are reviews, how old are the reviewers, what are the specifics, etc.

mostly - who gives a shit

The next really big news will be when they announce they are changing game engine.

I know that was a joke, but they actually are changing the engine. cryengine doesn't support their game design and they'll be a year or more rebuilding it to support double precision. the current maps are so small because cryengine can't do bigger. chris roberts has implied they have more cryengine developers than crytek

I was boggled when they first announced this would be the engine, and I still am. Cryengine has a far render distance for an FPS, but it's still an FPS engine. I just don't understand this decision. Maybe easier to take an existing engine like this with all the graphical bells and whistles you want and mod it to handle space than the build your own from scratch?

a prefab like cryengine might be a good idea to prototype some basic ideas and game styles since it already has all the integrated middleware and so forth, but theres absolutely no way in hell its ready for a game like christ roberts is dreaming of

i bet that was the original plan - use crytek to prototype some ideas while they figure out which direction they want to go, but then the star shitizen phenomena snowballed into epic proportions so fast they were basically locked in and had to justify their ridiculously exaggerated existence with "real progress"

and really, this whole circus very much resembles the mental patterning of an addict - with all the irrational enthusiasm, goal post changing, self-justification, "one more fix", etc. ... so it remains to be seen whether or not they can rise above the almighty $ and actually make some real progress, or whether it will turn into another Hellgate London story x1000000 .. remember that? heh, yeh - i bet you dont

it would be great if this series was full on rpg, with the fps style and all that other stuff

as it is, i find borderlands fun for a short while but ultimately its pretty hollow and superficial

I think these "activists" are confused. There's not a sexism problem in gaming. There's a sexism problem in SOCIETY.

thats true, but its more like there's a self-righteousness problem in egotistical assholes

really, the issue is about the moralizing, the shaming, the tsktsk-ing - the finger wagging from self-important fuckwads that have to be the center of attention and in control of every aspect of their environment

There seems to be quite a bit of anger about this game. I have one thing to say.

I thoroughly enjoyed what i've played so far.

There are a lot of damn good games to play, I can wait a bit longer for Star Citizen. I am confident it will not suck from what I've played so far. I actually see more potential here in the alpha than I did from Mechwarrior online and I really had high hopes for MWO.
