Thinking that it will suck a large chunk of subs from WoW, when do you release a product and not kill the existing cash cow. Or will Titan be so different, they won't pull many WoW subs. They'll have to time it to catch WoW on the way down.

My guess (hope) is that they basically give you access to both WoW and Titan for the same monthly price using that yearly-contract thing they did. That came with a free copy of D3, so I could see them doing something similar to get people to renew it.

$175 USD? WTF? Most Cons are like fifty or a hundo and these dipshits are charging as much as... $500 goddamned dollars!?!??

And it still sells out in hours, if not minutes.

No problem with Metro 2033 here either. Hell I had it running in 3D mode without issue. Awesome game. I can't wait for the next one.

DAoC was awesome, but with how often an MMO fails to deliver, funding one doesn't appeal to me. Still, I hope it works out for them.

Edit: fuck it. I have no will power. I just hope it's as fun as DAoC was.

did anyone look at the children faces in Bioshock Infinite? My.. FUCKING, God. That is the most horrible animation and facial design for children EVER.

I thought all the NPC models and animations, with exception of Elizabeth, were pretty bad. At least they're easy to ignore, what with them barely interacting with the player.

It does look cool. Anyone know if it's a PvP shitfest? I've tried a few browser-based MMOish RTS games and they always come down to the largest guilds/groups killing everyone they can for no particular reason.

I dont know about you guys but I'm so tired of these 8bit games that have been coming out lately.

My thought is that they've always been coming out, not just lately. It's just that we're seeing more and more of them because of Steam and Kickstarter. In the past, a game with graphics like this would just be buried somewhere unless it hit a certain popularity.

I'm in the same boat, though. Although I grew up on games that looked like this, it's hard to get in to them these days. I'm glad they're being made and enjoyed (presumably), but they're not for me.

StarForge was interesting, but full of suck when I tried it last year. I remember looking in to it further, and the people that had pre-ordered were still stuck on a fairly old build. Videos of the game would show one thing while the players were given another.

I wonder if they'll do more frequent updates here on Steam. It looks like a ton of fun.

I just thought of something, survival horror shooters are never going to be the same again with this thing.....

A lot of us are hoping for support with Amnesia. Although I will most likely lock my door should I play it. I don't want family members sneaking up on me.

If the hat is tradeable, it'll probably go for more than the Rift itself.

"Ready enough for trade shows" != "ready enough for the public to get the full game."

I don't think Carmack has said why they delayed it working in BFG, but the idea going around is that the dev version is quite a bit different than the unit they've been showing at shows. It's got a larger display for starters, with the overlap between the lenses different. Also has a new tracking system. And there's still no official SDK yet. In fact, they've been showing the dev kit version of the glasses, but having people use the prototype to play with it. When asked, they said their dev mockup wasn't quite there yet.

Most likely he didn't have enough time to tweak it to work correctly on the new dev glasses.

NVM I just went to their site and read up on it a bit. Looks really awesome, so when will this be in stores? Am I right in assuming only developers will be able to purchase/licence this initially?

You can still buy the developer version from their website. It'll be a few months before it arrives though. The kickstarter backers should be getting theirs very very soon (rumor is that they're shipping the first batch this week). Consumer version is supposed to come out end of this year or next.

I sure hope they added more QTEs to this game. I think I managed to play for like 3 minutes without one. It was weird. I felt like I was playing a game.

On a more serious note, fun game. Horrible abuse of QTE. I've got the hair thing enabled and it's meh. Kind of weird at times (it's like her hair is alive and trying to get away from her), but I haven't seen it without to compare.

The ingame assets in the Lord British kickstarter are atrocious.
Sure, you may scream that it's an early prototype, but that doesn't mean preliminary assets need to be so bland and unoriginal... and circa 2001.
Doesn't instill much faith in their art team, or Art Director.

He addressed this in one of his videos. He said the art was done by non-artists. They don't have an art team yet, or they're just bringing them in or something like that. Basically it's one step up from stick figures. I thought the same thing, though, that it looked like ass. I hope that wasn't just an excuse.

GMG is doing their usual 20% off coupon, which works on Tomb Raider. Brought the cost down to $40. Although I'm a bit nervous these days using a third party to get Steam keys. I've started using them more though and haven't had a problem.

I shortly thereafter realized that my entire order was canceled! Of course, hours later, I got the email from Amazon, apologizing for it and offering me $5 credit.

Wonder if this reddit post is related. The guy who cancelled them apologized and explained it. Not sure if it's the same as your issue.

The singleplayer/multiplayer sounds interesting. Sounds more like co-op, but the shops and such can be owned by players. Those show up in your game, but not the players. I like that. Give me the commerce and services/crafting of everyone, but limit my game to only those I want to play with.

I'm in also. That sounds really interesting, and I love RPGs.

Used to be that you only had to worry about an MMO launch. Seems that curse is spreading. Meanwhile, MMOs have gotten a lot better at it. How ironic.

I'd like to see this on Steam. I really miss that game. Is it even sold anywhere these days? I've no idea where my disc is. .. sold on Amazon, apparently. Tempting.
