This game just kind of came out of nowhere, didn't it? Pretty fun, though.

I remember one of the most annoying cheats to run into in that game wasn't any aimbot or such, but another machine on your network that could parse data from the game and give you a "radar" or sorts of all the players around you, and even their equipment loadouts. I know that this was supposedly impossible to ban someone for as nothing on the cheater's client was technically cheating, but I really hope they found a way to catch and ban those asshats doing it.

Haven't been part of this hobby in over a decade, but still wishing they hadn't decided to try molding this game into a 40K-lite setting/rules. 40K was already hugely successful and popular without trying to compete against that with something completely different.

What I loved about CoD 1&2 was the authentic feeling of the campaign, doing things that were recognizable from Hollywood but still within the bounds of reality. "Grounded combat"? This trailer looked like a ridiculous mashup of everything wrong with the last few installments.

I played this quite a bit for a few months over a year ago. I'm kind of afraid to go back to it now, because with all the changes, I'll probably be a complete noob again. Hell, even if there hadn't been changes, I've forgotten enough by now to be completely useless most likely.

I'm in the same boat, just started playing again with the 2.0 patch. It's a shame that you didn't play this last month because they gave everyone a pack of 20 free characters just for logging in, essentially. There's not much different about the game, really, just that they've consolidated people into having character levels rather than just individual hero levels. Some of the new maps are really cool, but you might see some old ones you recognize come up because there's finally enough for a map rotation now. There's no chat across teams, and you can choose to disable your own team's chat if you wish, too, which means that there is essentially no toxicity to be exposed to. It's a very fun game when you're fighting over map objectives instead of the same old tired 3 lane push game LoL and Dota are.

Usually in a freemium game you don't have to drop that $60 on the initial buy. This game has one messed up (greedy?) payment model.

The biggest fault against DayZ is that it was built on a shitty shit engine and had awful multiplayer infrastructure. I wouldn't care if it was in EA all this time if it actually played well but you fire it up and there's as much buggy, poorly-optimized bullshit now as there was years ago.

He probably cashed out because he knew it could never be fixed and there was no point in hanging around with that noose around his neck.

I wouldn't mind Dean Hall's moving on in that explanation as much if it weren't for DayZ staying on the Arma 2 engine instead of Arma 3 (which was available) mainly because of the familiarity of the team with the A2 engine (ie Dean Hall). The Dayz equivalents that you can play on Arma 3 are vastly improved over their Arma 2 predecessors in terms of stability and general clunky-ness. Forget a noose, that's one albatross around the neck that the Standalone didn't need to be carrying if the main reason for using it was going to walk away anyway.

OK, im in doubt,about he Full Keyboard customizing of controls. because the Closed and Open beta did not allow me to rebind the HOME, DEL, PGUP, PGDN, END, INSERT keys. I even posted this on Twitter, their forums and in my Beta survey to them. So come Tuesday. Ill know for sure. if its still not I will be raising hell on their forums about this and pointing out their little lie.

Glad to see another lefty with the same problems I've been having with all these latest titles. If it's any help, I've been using a program called AutoHotkey to run a script before launching some of these games that swap those keys with WASDR+ on the keyboard, and effectively bypass the issue.

Well, it's about time. The Bretonnian units have been in the game since launch, and you could fight against them in the campaign, you just couldn't play AS them. I guess they needed some more enemies in that region (like Wood Elves and Beastmen) to be added before it would seem like an interesting experience.

The tank simulation component to the game was really cool, I thought. Since there were no kill feed messages or points flashing on your screen for kills, you really had no way of knowing an enemy tank was really knocked out unless you saw it burning. Combined with just how detailed the damage model was, it felt like the strongest part of the game. Then again, driving an especially slow tank for over half an hour to get into the action just to be knocked out within a minute of getting into the fight... not so much.

I know I would be in the minority with how much less popular Empire was, but I would love to see that game revisited with all the updated mechanics the new games have developed.

And it can be yours for the low low price of about $20! Seriously, at this point, is it even possible to get a Games Workshop related game that doesn't have overpriced DLC?

I'd say it's certainly more approachable to the casual gamer than any other Paradox game, save perhaps Crusader Kings 2. Stellaris so far has been the best 4x game I've played in at least a decade.

There's a new edition of 40k coming out, but it'll be set in the year 30k. The lore describes how in the year 40k all of the vehicles and weapons used by the Imperium of Man are made by the few fabricator units still remaining online, and many other weapon/vehicle patterns are lost to history. I always thought that was kind of cool, and this is going to be a neat example of how moving the story back ten thousand years will actually net us more diverse and "futuristic" stuff. I may hate the business practices of Games Workshop, but I'm still keen to see what they come up with.

Older Total War games would add whole factions as Free-LC. Am I expecting too much here? Even these last two paid DLC's seem to offer not a whole lot to the game for their price point.

I've had issues with the last few Battlefield games not recognizing all my joystick's controls (throttle and rudder). I'm not holding my breath that this installment is going to break that trend, but I'd LOVE to be proven wrong.

I know the newer Total War games get a lot of hate on here, but I'm really liking this new one. They have some new settlement mechanics that work a lot better than juggling public order/pestilence, and the battles are really fun with all the crazy units everyone has. I only hope the late-game hero spam gets addressed, but other than that I heartily recommend this.

Is this game still in development? I thought they'd basically taken the money and run.

That's been my impression of it. It seems like there's been less meaningful content added in the last two years than was added in just the first few months of early access. Development has slowed down so much, I've been wondering if there's just one or two people left on the project. I hold this game up as the example of why Early Access is a terrible thing. Once had the majority of your would-be customers buy into your game and have their money, just how much incentive is there to really finish it, and not just walk away?

Cutter, 2015-2013 is 2, not 3.

That said, 2 years of development has gotten us not as much as anyone had hoped. We've had tiny baby steps in Standalone over the last couple years, and in the meanwhile versions like Breaking Point on Arma 3 looks orders of magnitude better. The decision to stick with the Arma 2 engine was a terrible one, and something I'll never understand when the Arma 3 engine was already available. I remember the rumor was that Dean Hall was accustomed to the Arma 2 engine and didn't want to learn to work the Arma 3 engine, and if true (if!) that would make his decision to leave the project unethical, in my opinion.
