None of the maps in this game are conducive to sniping.

Most games have some sort of online component, and I understand you can't play anything on a console until you download the latest firmware and updates.

Yeah, I haven't bought anything this time either. So much unplayed stuff in my queue.

Wreckfest is on sale though. It's EA, but looks pretty good. Anyone play it?

Huh, Wreckfest isn't EA it's essentially a new version of Flatout by Bugbear.

trailer was meh.

#1) i'll never understand people who put 1000 hours into MP, and never touch SP, aka all of my friends. They'll say how bored they are and wish there were new maps, i'll casually point out that there's the other HALF of the content this game has in SP, and they'll laugh, like that is the most crazy thing anyone could think of doing.

#2) anyone who hasn't yet seen it, look for the hardline trailer where community members got to play a new game mode and were allowed to film it, pretty sure the usual suspects, matimio, lvlcap etc. have footage. in short it looked like conquest where cars were the flags. it felt more like GTA than well... GTA? this looks like a killer competitive mode.

Bad Company 2 had the most "open" single player campaign where you had a little freedom to explore maps and felt slightly sandbox on some levels. The ones since have been trying too hard to be "cinematic". I do wish some of the levels from the single player campaign made it into the multiplayer portion, I don't know why they don't do that as it would seem to be a pretty easy thing to do.

2015 is going to be the year for cops n robbers themed games with this and GTA V - although only 4 player coop for GTA.

How much crap are they going to get from the "press" for showing cops as a militarized force?

Meanwhile GTA V gets a free pass even with their Heist multiplayer mode.

Still doesn't have head tracking support but it does look like they've toned down the JJ Abrams effects - no more bright shining lights (along with over the top lens flare effect) on the canopy blinding you.

If the government really had internet customers interests in mind then they would hold all of these ISP's to task over not fulfilling the mandate set forth in the 1996 telecommunications act.

Ah voxels, we hardly knew you.

I still remember those old novalogic games that used that technology, then 3d accelerators happened.

News Comments > Respawn on Titanfall on Origin vs. Steam

No proper single player, massive bloat with "uncompressed audio", filling up small maps with bots to try to hide the lower player count, unimpressive amount gadgets and weapons to pick from, selling multiplayer maps as DLC or a seasonpass - which very few purchased and those that did never got to play because of the lack of players, no dedicated servers.

I don't think Origin killed it, even if it were on Steam it would have died a quick death just like other games have, Brink anyone?

I didn't want to spend the $60....but I did it anyhow. I see that I have to install it online. Anyone know if I can move the installation over to a USB drive to take home? I'd much rather download it at work and carry it home then wait for my slow-as-molasses cable at home to download it.

I think it'll work, you'll need to authorize your computer at home but the files should move over just fine.

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.

Take a minute and appreciate how far we've come from 1984's version of Elite.

I know most people want to just jump right in but they did put in some training videos that might be helpful.

News Comments > Hatred Gets Steam Redlight
38. Re: Hatred Gets Steam Redlight Dec 16, 2014, 01:11 DangerDog
 
The Greenlight program is about getting a game listed on Steam, not asking Valve to publish the game in the traditional sense. From reading the Greenlight page it's suppose to be up to the "community" to decide on if a game should be Green-lit but they seem to be skipping that process.

Valve says no Seduce-Me on Steam

Game didn't look any worse than your average "naughty" part from a Leisure Suit Larry game.

If you are outraged that valve made this decision, I hope you are prepared to be outraged for any other game valve decides to take out of the store. So go join the crusade to get The War Z put back.

Games that are falsely advertised or end up being a borderline scam because they're sold in non-working/buggy/incomplete condition deserve to get the punt.

Obviously this was a publicity stunt, censorship was expected which will just draw even more people to take a look just to see what's so "bad" about the game.

I just think it's hypocritical of Steam to be censoring the game. Isn't Manhunt or Postal in this same category? They're still on Steam. I disapprove of Steam being selective on games based on content but it's their ballpark and they get to make up the rules.

Now imagine if it were a closed ecosystem like their "steambox" where you don't get to just buy it from somewhere else, Apple does this with their iTunes store and I'm sure Microsoft does it with their web store. And this is why I choose not to partake in buying any of the products that are tied to these kinds of closed systems. At least with Google Android they allow you to load apps from sources other than the play store if you desire.
