After watching a couple Let's Play of this... I have no idea what it is. Neither did the reviewers. They seemed to be enjoying themselves though.

Not a bad game. I'm curious, though. There's a lot of people on Blues that love PoE. But they're the same people that bitched about the always-on DRM in Diablo 3. Doesn't PoE have the same exact thing? I've only logged in once, so I haven't checked to see if my chars are saved to a cloud. I'm guessing they are.

Are Koch Media the guys behind Deep Silver? I can't remember. I think they are, in which case it's not great, since Deep Silver is one of the worst fucking publishers on the planet. Enjoy your TAGES DRM on your Steam games...

Hopefully Metro is far enough along that additional DRM would be a huge pain in the ass. I think it's supposed to ship fairly soon. I thought it was late January, but Steam just says early 2013.

That'd be awesome. Or better, stick the WoW players on the ground as champion mobs against the D3 units. That'd be fun.

Note that the comments from Valve's Michael Abrash talked about simulator sickness, this is not something you feel unless you have interactive gameplay that extends for a certain amount of time.

I have this problem with the nVidia 3D glasses (waste of money). I can use them for about 30 minutes before I don't feel so good. The Oculus is getting good reviews, though.. so hopefully it will be different.

War Z's problems seem to all stem from policies and admins, not the game itself. Sure, some people didn't review it too highly, but that's not the reason for wanting to burn the guy's house down.

If it's just a bad game, then it's just a bad game. If you lie about your bad game and then ban people left and right after taking their money, that's totally different.

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.

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.
