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!

News Comments > Dishonored DLC Info Tomorrow?
5. Re: Dishonored DLC Info Tomorrow? Jul 16, 2013, 00:44 Wowbagger_TIP
 
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.

Wow, that's a serious amount of cutting they'd have to do to make the game low-violence...

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.

Creston

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.

No real SP game was the main reason I wasn't interested either. I don't play a lot of MP, so it's very much just a nice to have thing for me. Give me a good SP game, first and foremost.

I'd be all for an 'autoreport to police', not just eliminating what's out there. Realistically, there's minimal punishment for those caught which also needs to be addressed.
Realistically, most of them don't get caught because they do it in places where the authorities are corrupt or incompetent, or both.

I think pretty much everyone agrees that people have the right to say what they want.

I think we all agree that you don't have a right to not be offended by others.

Hopefully Beamer's explanations have made it clear that 1st amendment protections deal with government restraint of speech, not private restraint.

Therefore, it's perfectly fine that some people were offended by the comments/actions. It's also perfectly fine if they want to speak out about that as well.

They're also free to boycott the product/company that these people were representing.

The company is also free to sanction them if they determine that what they said/did violates company policy or is detrimental to the company in some way.

So, whether you found it funny or not, and whether you care or not, doesn't really matter. Everyone gets to say their peace. There may be consequences for the speech, but nobody's rights are being violated.

Are we done here?

Well it's not often you will hear me say this. But I find (And I am not particularly a great defender of feminist nonsense) that the "joke" and whistling were both abysmal behavior and worthy to be shunned. You do that on the job and you are fired. But on the stage of the E3 Microsoft Event? Holy hell.

This got nothing to do with political correctness. Try doing this in an office and see the lawsuit incoming. Point: What kind of fucking retard makes a rape joke on stage, and then another fucking retarded does a whistling concert when a female PR dudess goes on stage... are only complete retards working in this industry or what.

As a male and not feminist I say, these 2 guys can go fuck off.

While the PC stuff often annoys me, this kind of crap is pervasive and just doesn't fly in the real world. Leave that shit in high school, where you should have outgrown it. On stage at a public event? Yeah... those guys are beyond moronic.
