I was asking a question. If pricing was announced to be $60 for each of the 3 parts of this game, would that be ok? Would anyone take issue with this game if that were the end result?

Depends on how good SC2 episode 1 is. If I can get 15+ hours of enjoyment out of it, yeah, I'll buy the next at $60. If it turns out to be crap, then no I won't. I've already got that 15 hours in the beta, so I'm not too worried.

Amazon still shows mine as arriving tomorrow. My first foray in to "release day shipping", or whatever it is. If it doesn't make it tomorrow I'll be pissed.

I paid for the feed last year. I'll probably do it again this year. I like seeing the behind-the-scenes stuff (the panels and such). Plus two years ago they announced Diablo 3 (I think it was at BlizzCon). Last year was all about Cata. What's this year going to be?

Plus they have goodie bags (codes). The $40 last year was worth it.

Part of the allure of the show was the practically hopeless situation the human fleet was in compared to the near infinite resources available to the Cylons.

The Cylons split in to two groups towards the end of the show. I don't know how the game is handling them, but it's possible they're the latter group that had a broken ship and little else. Also, weren't there only 13 human looking Cylons? I should probably read up on this game since I'm curious how they're going to make it work.

Can't compare it since I can't remember AoW2 very well (if I played it). But Elemental is fucking fun, even for a buggy beta. I'm actually waiting for the 3B beta (last one before launch) to finish updating so I can play again.

I liked it. I'll be dropping $60, mainly for singleplayer campaign and skirmishes. Multiplayer can suck it unless it's against friends.

This sounds RPG-ish. Did the current devs even play SC1?

For the love of the Pharaoh, PLEASE UPDATE THE UI. Spend a few minutes coding some god damn proper movement controls. You don't even have to think about it, just copy WoW's control scheme. Everyone else does.

ATITD1 was awesome. I spent many hours collecting grass for the damn camel. After playing other MMOs, however, I can't return because I spend most of my time swearing at the interface.

Forums trolls are probably just a cover. The game is what, five years old? And _just now_ it's a problem? Those forums have been horrible since before launch. There are numerous other methods to fix troll problems. And there's this rumor going around now.

This demo needs to be on Steam. I'm too lazy to have my games not in Steam or Impulse.

News Comments > Dead Space 2 Announcement Nears
6. Re: Dead Space 2 Announcement Nears Jul 7, 2010, 13:08 Frijoles
 
I'm looking forward to #2. As for your points,

1) You didn't miss much. The notes didn't really have a lot of info. Some where just list of deceased.
2) Yes, very linear. I still used the button to show me where I was going, though. I kept getting lost with all the doors looking the same.
3) I enjoyed combat after I got the ripper. The flame thrower on those little things was fun as well.
4) I hated the lack ammo, but it did make the game more challenging. And yeah, I didn't experiment much or open many of the extra doors because I didn't want to waste my power nodes.

Still, I enjoyed the game. I figure I'll buy #2 when it's on sale for around $30.

Nope, not yet. Despite it being cracked a while ago and them saying they'd remove it if it were cracked (I think that's the rumor anyway).

Sad indeed. I got a shirt from them. I should ebay it in a few years. I stopped following them when they deleted all the accounts and made everyone sign up over at Intel's site. Hopefully things work out for them.

Seems most MMOs (Tabula Rasa excluded) seem to survive, even with very few users. I'll put this in that boat. I don't think it'll shutdown in the next six months, but I don't see it becoming very big at all.

Surprised they moved so fast on this. They released a poll at the start of the week specifically asking if people had any interest in subscribing or not. I wonder how many, like myself, said no. At least they are listening and making improvements.

As for the death of the game, you can still find matches both for PvP and PvE. I think there were around 20 PvE matches (think it was hard mode) and around the same number of PvP matches last weekend when I was on.

Does Bioshock 2 still have the DRM on it? The steam page for it doesn't mention it, but I remember it (the DRM) being full of suck.

33% off Settlers sounds awesome. No buy with the DRM though until it hits $5.
