Damn, I'm so excited for this game all a sudden and I don't even plan on buying it at full price. Aaaaargggh! Why! oh Why! I wish game prices were dead locked in so I wouldn't get buyer's remorse so heavily. Knowing this game will drop like an anchor in price in the next 6 months or so has me aching to pay full price. What oh what do I dos?

I'm excited for those dishing out the $60 full price. I on the other hand will wait for a deal or price drop. Got plenty to stay busy with meantime.

That dialog is horrible.

The dialog is very similar to what you'd find in the books.

Really? The books use "Yeah" and "Gotcha?"

Huh? I guess it's because my mother language is foreign that I don't see the problem with "Yeah" and "Gotcha", unless it's some king or general that says it. I haven't seen the vid yet.
Am I the only find it kind of out of place when the guards swear and say fuck? I don't think they've cursed like that back in the day, but I might be wrong. Just seem strange

This can't get any stranger than in the game, Styx: Master of Shadows. The dude is like a goblin/orc/troll fellow and you hear f bombs and other derogatory remarks in a medieval dark fantasy environment.

Seemed really out of place not to mention the voice provided to Styx doesn't sound right to begin with. Very odd choices.

As far as this video goes, crappy quality aside, it looks pretty good. Never played the original and maybe 3 minutes of the 2nd and didn't care too much for it but this one might have me attempt it just for the graphics to show off on my new rig if anything.

Between this and GTA5 I think my sandbox world is complete. (still working on Sleeping Dogs)

Hmmm, I wonder if I'll get the invite.

I've gotten an invite from Blizzard so far to try out, vanilla WoW, Starcraft 2, Starcraft 2 HotS, Warcraft 3 expansion, Heroes of the Storm, and Diablo 3.

Did you ask or sign up for those invites? It kinda sounds like you just opened your mail and there it was... if so then why?

I may have signed up, but I also opt-in for any betas via the battle.net profile page. Maybe I just get very lucky

200+... I realize that's a selling point for a lot of people... But holy crap, even one quarter of that is too much for me... Unless the combat (where you spend most of the game) is amazing, anything over 20 hours starts to bore me... Add that to my inability to stick to one game at a time, I have a ton of half completed games...

No no, you missed the part where I generally feel I don't have enough time. I have tons of games and not enough time to play thru them so the story sometimes gets in the way of the gameplay, lol.

I completely get your points about it stupid to miss the story of an RPG and whatnot, but with less time available which I'm sure a lot of you here have no clue what that's about yet until you move out, marry, and have responsibilities (don't even have a kid yet!). Your time management becomes a major factor in gaming, lol.

Am I the only one that hates reading these absurd long game hours? Maybe I'm just at that stage in my life where I don't got much time to get involved into a huge story and take on every side quest and challenge.

I find myself skipping thru cinematics and intro more and more as I get older and have limited gaming time. Games that clock in at a solid 10-12 hours of fun gameplay I think I've been finding more and more enjoyable these days.

Still, I can see myself eventually buying this game to see what all the hype is about, playing it for a few hours until I get bored and drop off, similar to how I've done GTA games, Skyrim, etc. on long hour titles, lol.

Honestly, if EA put their money into DICE to get a space version of Battlefield going, they will have something easily that can compete if not beat this and put it out a lot quicker with their muscle backing it.

I just picture Battlefield 4 type cutscenes using the in-game graphics, life like character animations, and vehicle physics, incorporated into a space environment and done deal.

It wouldn't be too hard, just have to come up with a hocus pocu storyline and they are good to go to throw in all the variables needed.

Same here. Installed it Saturday night to see wtf it was all about.

I honestly had no clue what the hell I was doing as they drop you in a hanger and you kind of aren't told anything.

I managed to get into the ship as that seemed like the obvious thing to do and chose I guess free roam or whatever it was called. I expected the hanger doors to open and I can fly out as seen in the demo videos. Instead it just loaded me immediately into space.

All in all, it ran great but seemed like it had no purpose. I would of preferred they shared something a bit more complete than just a technology show. I was impressed for 5 minutes and then quit to go back into CS GO, lol.

lol, well, that's not a surprising experience if you went in blind. It definitely wouldn't hurt if the launcher had more tutorial info or basic new user info on what there is to do once you load in, what to look for, and how and why to give feedback.

The purpose, so far, is testing and feedback. There really isn't a cohesive game yet and won't be for much of the year, if this year at all. Many parts of it are in concurrent development across their studios and as those parts are fitted together, it will hopefully start to look more like a real game.

I get you, but it's not a good impression for those that aren't following all the hype and updates on the game. All I know is the game has a ton of backers with a whole heck of a lot of money. Now as an unawared gamer who just got his hands on a "demo", I would say it was a bad impression.

Of course if I knew this was a technology demo in advance that just shows the graphics and that's about it, I would of gone in with less expectations.

Now that you filled me in, I'll try this again in a year.

This game is full of so much eye candy stuff it just turns your stomach, all the fancy pilot console animations with lovely ship damage.

In the end when all this is fancy anims has done it's stuff, what it all boils down to when all this eye candy shit vanishes is the gameplay and the gameplay is what people want to play. I can only see that this game will fall into the same category as all the rest of the 3rd/1st person space shooters, but with a difference, it has a 80m price tag!

Uuuuh, I guess if Street Fighter and Star Citizen had a baby, this post might make some sense, lol

"Which one you most looking forward to?


Street Fighter V Remix
Street Fighter V vs IV
Street Fighter Underpants Dance

There's more coming, but those seem to be top priority regurgs... "


This is kind of funny to me because a couple days ago I was thinking of buying Street Fighter IV on Steam and when I typed it in, I got like 20 versions of the damn game.

I had no clue which was the latest and greatest and what did I need, not need. In the end I decided, I do not need this game. lol

Okay then. Ordered. I'll pick it up on the way home.

BB also has Heart of the Swarm for 10 bucks. I might buy that too.

I can't believe I'm going to a best buy. First time in years.

The expansion is totally worth it. It's one of the best things Blizzard did to fix Diablo 3. The Crusader class is a blast to play with. While the game eventually gets into it's usual rut where it becomes a tad boring, it's a total blast until you reach that moment, lol.

Hahah, I can imagine Diablo 3 in it's early release form where everything was geared to funnel you into the Real Money Auction House.
The Blizzard CEO tells the Diablo 3 devs to play the game and they say, hell no, that game sucks.

lol.

Never even played the first but I heard good things about it. A lot people even claimed it as their game of the year. I would definitely like a run thru that one before seeing what this sequel is all about.

As soon as I read this I came here to say, YES, I AM READY! But then I watched the trailer and I'm a tad worried. I understand they want to change it up a bit as the first 2 were similar in a sense, but that wasn't a bad thing. Both are awesome games.

Now they are adding full 360 degree movement in some areas and vertical movement areas. Hopefully it doesn't get too nuts and still manages to be a heck of a lot of physics fun with the addictive gameplay of the first two.

Keeping my fingers crossed!

BTW-Was it just me or did those graphics look cruddy? Taken from console version perhaps?
