I like 3D films, it's the related things I dislike.

I hate that they shove it in your face. LOOK, WE'RE 3D! Let's have this stupid, unnecessary use of CGI to show all the SHIT we can throw IN YOUR FACE now. It's so over the top it just feels forced. I pray that smell-o-vision never works out for this very reason. Also the additional $5 I have to pay for a worse movie experience pisses me off. I go to 2D if it's available and at a good time.

You can no longer pick and choose spells, you get stuck with a spec (entropy etc). You have keys for aim up/aim down (angle shots) basically pushing you to use a controller. The world/townbuilding bit is pretty much nothing like the original either.

That really explains a lot. I thought the mouse was just buggy. I kept wondering why I couldn't aim at shit. I think I got about 5 minutes in before I moved on. Also, the new and improved graphics look just as shitty as the first game.

I would _gladly_ pay HBO directly (or Netflix) to get it the same night as Dish/Direct TV/Comcast/etc. I have Netflix, but it takes them several months to get them.

They're adding an "Ulduar quality" raid. I'm not sure if it's on PTR yet. Adds 3 new scenarios too, bunch of changes to the farms, new way to get rep, etc. Quite a bit content, really.

And it wouldn't be WoW without nerfs every patch.

Who the hell thought Dead Space was begging for voice integration?

It listens for when you start whimpering, and then amps up the fear until you have a nervous breakdown.

but if you can tolerate the slow plodding pace and the technical shortcomings (like the awful animations and performance) it may end up being something you can enjoy... once they properly finish it.

Don't forget the micro-transactions. I'm sorry, but forcing me to pay MORE just to rez.. yeah. They can fuck off. The game looked interesting. Now I hope it and the developer just go away.

mmmm... new caves.

I'll buy it .. eventually. I enjoyed Rage, and I don't see any cars, which is the part I hated.

You didn't like BnW or Fable? Both were excellent games (hell Fable 2 is the bst in the series)?

BnW was broken. I believe your pet was taken away in act 3 (or so) and the bug failed to return it. There were only 5 acts, which was really short, and your pet was gone for half of that. I really loved chucking fireballs over the mountains, but there just wasn't much game there. BnW2 just wasn't fun for me.

I did enjoy Fable, despite the console controls. I'll buy this game if it comes to Steam. Molyneux is the King of Hype, and his Curiosity "game" makes it look like he was seeing how much bullshit someone will take in whatever game comes next.

I'd rather not be heart broken over the possibility of a F2P AC2... no thanks...

If there's one company I trust with f2p, it's Turbine. They did a great job with LOTRO and DDO.

My bet is that this is step 1 towards something else. Either moving people out of AC1 (can't see that happening) or going F2P with it. Hopefully the latter. I wouldn't mind having a look at it again after so many years.

Here's to hoping their goal is to tweak it (overhaul it) to make it more like AC1.

The reviews have been pretty mixed, but I do love building games. What issues have you had with it?

It's a slow game. At least at the start. I dunno if it picks up since I haven't played it enough (I think I have about 4 hours in it). I stopped the campaign and just started a custom game, and I play it off and on when work is slow.

Relaxing really is a good way to explain it.

I enjoyed the singleplayer, and doing MP with my coworkers was fun for a while. There's not exactly a lot of base-building RTS games these days, so I'm looking forward to it.

I almost bought it over Thanksgiving, but figure I won't have time until after xmas anyway, so may as well hold off until the xmas sale to see if it's cheaper. With all the good reviews, I'm looking forward to trying it out.

Our iPad is a console for my kids. They fight over it, just like I used to fight with my siblings over the Nintendo when I was growing up. Definitely glad I have one.

Yeah, not too impressed. First spawn was an almost insta death. Second was a 10 minute run from wherever it was we were going. Third and fourth spawn were death. Fifth death was when I quit. Had no clue what was going on. Killed a couple teammates (one of them shot me first). Felt slow compared to Tribes.

I'll give it another shot eventually, but first impression wasn't good.

I'll be curious to see how the WiiU does. The buttons are supposedly very poor and cheap feeling, which is a bummer. And the screen is resistive, which means no multi-touch, and I hear touch can be iffy on it.

Buttons felt fine on mine. The controller is a bit large and will take some getting used to. I ended up using my Wii remote to play the new Mario game, while my son used the tablet to harass the enemies on the screen.

And that's basically what it is. A tablet. Moving the game from TV to controller is pretty cool, though. I finished playing and decided to check out Netflix. I ended up streaming a cartoon to the controller for my kid to watch while I switched the TV back. But if you already have a tablet, that's kinda pointless.

Btw. is this whole 3D thing with games picking up anytime soon or was it just another gimmick, fading out in obscurity?

I bought the nVidia glasses. Don't waste your money. It's cool at first, but just not worth it. Some games handle it pretty well, others fail. I stopped using it since I didn't want to lower my graphic settings, and it gave me a headache after only an hour (I tend to play games for a few hours at a time).

I've thought about going back to older games like Metro and trying it out now that I have a more powerful graphics card and won't have to lower the settings. I may still do that when I get some time.
