News Comments > POE Boasts 2M Players; Patch Details; Supporter Packs Update

I backed Grim Dawn, so definitely looking forward to that one. Kickstarter games are practically the only ones I'm really excited about at this point. Should start seeing some of the good ones later this year.

Just got back into PoE. Hadn't played since a little while before OB started. Got a lvl 36 ranger going right now, almost done with Act 3. Been having terrible luck with drops though, which is why I'm kind of over-leveled at this point. Having fun with it though. Act 3 is definitely a lot different than the first 2 acts, which I'd played through many times already.

If it looks decent enough at release, I'll probably buy it. Hopefully the series will continue...

I thought they said that raising the level cap would unbalance things. How are they avoiding that?

Did you even read the interview or just comment snipe the headline? His points are well founded and he's not really digging on Call of Duty itself so much as he's talking about how players want everything to be like it since its made everything effortless.

But Call of Doody lets me eat cake for breakfast if I want!!

Not sure I am ready to get as cynical as Cutter but I am nearing the end of my pledges for sure. I am hoping to see more soon from what I have spent already.

Just from what I've seen of Wasteland 2 and Shadowrun Returns so far, I think I'm going to get more than my money's worth in games this year. I'm fairly choosey about the games I back, and so far things are looking very good!

I finally got off my butt and backed it. Actually I did that while still on my butt, but I think it still counts. In at the $50 level for now. Trying to decide if I want to go higher. Can get beta access at $75 I think, but not sure I even want that for a game like this.

I can't see any reason to have a shred of sympathy for anyone who gave EA money for this. It's their own damn fault for being stupid. They should have directed this letter at all of those people instead.

I'm another one that never got around to playing Torment. Really can't remember why, but owell. This looks interesting though, so I'll probably contribute once I have a chance to read through it all. Need more good RPGs.

If you expected more then you are an idiot.

And, if you actually played the DLC, you'd see how damn obvious it is that the stuff has zero to do with the actual game, is somewhat annoying, and clearly isn't "cut content."

I don't know, I think anyone who just puts up with it because 'thats what they said they would do so that makes it ok and dont you dare expect more' is an idiot. DLC characters -after- a season pass is my personal line, I draw it there and I don't give a fuck if you think its fair or not, any company doing that shit won't get my money in the future. The quality of the Borderlands 2 DLC doesn't exactly have me begging for another pass anyway.

Drawing lines on the basis of anything but the value you attribute to the content is just pretty silly. If the season pass content isn't worth it, then by all means, don't purchase a season pass. If it's bad enough that you really feel ripped off, then let them know it, and vote with your wallet as well.

I certainly don't feel ripped off by the season pass content, and I'll decide on any additional content when it gets released. If it looks like it's worth the cash, then I'll pick it up. Otherwise I move on and wait for the next thing. I don't see anything inherently wrong or shady about them releasing another character as non-season-pass material.

I'm not, just tired of hearing how "for the US people" democrats are, when they're pretty much the exact polar opposite in reality.

Yes, just like republicans, or are we still pretending that they don't do the same crap? The Tea Party ones come in talking like they're different, but they're really just a lot dumber, and still want to violate the Constitution six ways from Sunday. The only expertise most congresspeople have is in the pandering department.

Not that most republicans are any better, I don't disagree there, but I think you're confused, it's the democrats that have issues with the 2nd amendment, and like to push through health care bills as a service from the government then pass it off as a tax to circumvent the constitution.

Obama took an oath to uphold it, and he's been pissing all over it every chance he gets since day one in office.

I'm not confused at all. There's a lot more to the Constitution than the 2nd amendment, which I happen to fully support as well. Both parties are very much responsible for ignoring the parts of it that they don't like. Their respective fan-bases just tend to give them a pass on it because they don't like those parts either, or just hate the other guys so much that they turn a blind eye and/or rationalize the hell out of it.

Rather than advocating a focus on constraining the power of broadband duopolists, she calls for a broad increase in government involvement in the communications industry. That approach didn't work very well the last time we tried it in the mid-20th Century. And it would likely work even worse today.

Well said! She's an opportunist looking to 'create jobs' regulating things when it wouldn't work and would cost a lot of money. I wonder what her conflicts of interests are in advocating further federal regulatory powers over the Internet when she herself was an adviser to Obama. Hmmmm. Let me guess... She wants an appointed job and to be the center of attention at dinner parties??

Oh hey a democrat wanting in increase government power. That never happens.

SMASH THE STATE!

This game looks really good, and if that small clip represents the game then I am sold. Is this a ps3 or ps4 game?

I'm not much interested in playing through a bunch of scripted events. I'll wait and see how things actually turn out before laying out any cash.

Why would a soldier in combat have an iPhone, except to act as body armour? Isn't that all kinds of dangerous?

It could give away his position (by triangulating its cell connection), photos could be geotagged or give away sensitive information - if nothing else, aren't they already carrying masses of heavy shit? I know it's only about 100g but that's 100g more than necessary. Is there a great deal of time for playing Fruit Ninja anyway?

Could possibly just be in a non-communicative mode and he keeps it with him because it's got all the pics of his family on it. Of course I remember talk a while back of the Army wanting soldiers to carry smartphones for intelligence gathering and potentially easier communication with commanders. I think they were talking about encrypted communications though, and I don't know what risks might be involved with tower communications.

It looks really interesting. I hope they'll wait with Kickstarting it until they are (almost) done with Wasteland 2, but I'll definitely be kicking in.

Creston


For some reason, I just assumed they'd start it soon, and I hope it doesn't impact Wasteland. But I will say Wasteland looked exactly what I was hoping it would be, in that last video.

Now we need some shadowrun video.

Yeah, I'm not sure which game I'm more excited about. Shadowrun has a new dev diary up that talks more about the dev tools they plan to release. Can't wait to see the stuff that people start making with those!

I haven't followed this game at all. Planetside 2 was a disappointment. Is this any good? Is it laggy? Is it P2W?

Should be fun, I too had to get past the "it's not Far Cry" mental barrier but once I did I enjoyed Crysis 2 for what it was, a game equivalent of a Jason Statham movie.

DangerDog, was that final code?

I never understood all the hate for aliens in Crysis... Though I imagine this is part of it, and the fact I didn't play far cry helps my lack of understanding...

For me, the hate for the aliens in Crysis was due to the fact that the game became completely linear and scripted from that point on. Some of the aliens were rather annoying and repetitious as well, but it was really the on-rails nature of the second half of the game that killed it for me.
