It kinda reminds me of Unreal Tournament. I'd like to give it a try if I can get a key.

Watched a bit of it - not very impressed I guess....just looks like more of the same. I hate to say it, but....oh well. Also, the guy playing sucks.

To me it looks like more of the same, but better, which is exactly what I want from SR games. But yeah, the guy playing does suck.

They're so devastated they voted themselves another raise.

The only reason they're flip-flopping on the NSA right now is because they're worried about the 2014 elections. A lot of incumbents are in danger of getting voted out on their ass. The second they've secured another 4 or 6 year term, they go right back to saying how necessary it will be to spy on everyone.

The only way to get rid of these fucking clowns is to VOTE ALL THE FUCKING INCUMBENTS OUT OF OFFICE.

The problem is that decent people don't run for office. You kind of have to be rather sociopathic to do it. You'll be tarred for everything they can possibly dig up on you. Your family will be hounded and snooped on. You'll be massively outspent by opponents funded by the industries they're beholden to, and therefore ultimately lose anyway. I know I'd be completely unelectable in this country.

A quick look at the forums there leads me to believe this game has some serious balance issues as well as whatever P2W issues it may have. The stuff in the FAQs was fairly vague about what could be purchased vs. what you have to find in-game.

Screw waiting! If you don't have SR3, you should buy it now!

The reason we have to wait a month is because retailers won't let publishers release digital versions early.

I've heard that the game features no inventory. Not sure it's the kind of game I want.

I believe there's inventory, but no looting of corpses. Which I'm okay with, since usually on a run you shouldn't have time to stop and roll the guards for loot.

Yeah, I remember them talking about that. Basically it was for balance, since they wanted to put you up against serious corp hardware, but it would be too easy if you could just kill a dude and take his rocket launcher or whatever

I still hate the stylized Orks. They just look fucking ridiculous and it really shatters the immersion. Everything else looks great though. Maybe someone will build new models for them with the editor - which I also cannot wait to check out.

What's everyone going first? I'm pretty torn. I'll prolly go Shammy, but Decker and Street Sammy are calling me too!

Edit: Oh yeah, forgot they have Riggers too. Wonder how viable they'll be in this game.

I'm pretty sure I'm gonna go decker first... but street sammy is really tempting too! Aww.. it don't mattter... I'll be playing the hell out of this for months I think. I'll play them all!

I just picked Dishonored up today in the Steam sale. If it's as good as most people are saying, I'll probably end up grabbing the new DLC as well.

Apparently I need to get a controller now too, since I got Rogue Legacy, and playing it with the keyboard is just painful. All I have are wireless 360 controllers though. Not sure what kind of controller to get yet.

Only reason I can think of to make a sequel instead of updating, is to not do F2P anymore.

I'm curious about the sales numbers for store purchases in F2P games. Maybe they've noticed that most people make the vast majority of their purchases early, and then it tapers off as they drift away from the game to the new flavor of the month. So by doing a sequel, they get another round of players coming through and making those early purchases again? I can't really think of any other good reason to do a sequel.

Wow - talk about bad timing! I think I was just fired from my job this evening. So no purchases on the Steam sale for me until I know that I can do the mundane things in life like pay my mortgage and put food on the table. Right now it's one of those "don't call us we'll call you" kind of things to see if I am still employed or not, so in the meantime there's a whole cabinet of heavy liquor begging to be drunk sitting in my kitchen. Bottoms up! Drunk2

Oh wow, sorry to hear that Prez! I hope you find something soon, and that it pays well enough to support your Steam habit

I just started a new job a couple months ago after being at the same place for 15 years. It's kinda scary being out looking for something new, but can be a good thing too.

I saw a comment in another forum recently from Australians bitching about how games are more expensive in Aus. vs. the rest of the noworld. I imagine this is why. When developers have to rewrite their damn games to pass your nanny laws, you should have to pay more to cover the extra development costs.

Well if the dumb ass developers had half a sense of what not to put in a game like this, they would not have this problem. Despite the rating, kids in their early teens will be playing this, whether their parents know it or not. It is not an aussie problem, it is immature developers not recognizing limits.


WOW. That's just...please tell me that was sarcasm.


If you'd seen his other posts about this game, you'd know he's totally serious. He really thinks there's no such thing as an adult game (even when rated for 18+), and we all need to be protected from such filth as SR4. It's far more disturbing to me than anything in the game.

It would be a riot if volition patched in a "three stooges fight" mechanic, complete with poking people in the eye, etc...


With stooge moves and counters like Arkham

Do people even play demos anymore? I used to always play them, but haven't in 10 years. A trusted review/Blue's comments are what I use now to assess a game.

I play them sometimes. It's so easy to grab a demo from Steam. If I see something that looks interesting, I usually add it to my wishlist, but if there's a demo I'll grab it.

It does look really, really cool. However, I am very skeptical that they can make a game of this kind for half a million bucks...

If they can, though... I mean, it sounds fantastic.

That was my thought too. Seems pretty low too me. I'm fine with real-time though, as long as I can pause and give orders.

I've enjoyed this game too.

If you just remember that this has NOTHING to do with sword of the stars (they really should have called it something else), then you are good.

All of the creatures and lore in it are from the SoTS universe though. So it's not like it's a bad name. Although I guess I see where you're coming from in that it's not a 4x space strategy game.
My point is more that people who like roguelike games may not want anything to do with 4x space game, and the sword of the stars makes most gamers who know that name think 4x. I think that name does them a disservice.

I actually just assumed this was some expansion for SotS. Never knew it was something else until just now.
