You aren't missing much. One terribly shallow, but shiny, game.

Visual bells whistles don't cover the boring systems it uses for 'gameplay.'

Find marker, trigger a bunch of nonsensical chatter from invisible NPCs in your ear, kill waves of bad guys, get loot. Repeat.

Random dungeon (forced, cant solo) group I did was ok, but Unreal Tournament did all of this gameplay better. Only difference is now you can play dressup.

Just my thoughts.

Help me out, there was this other 3rd person game that looked similar and I thought it was solid as hell. Maybe from 2004 somewhere? Maybe later. You were a guy looking similar to this guy with all kinds of fire/demon abilities.

Prototype?

I picked this up a few weeks ago and started playing it. It is very similar to Freelancer. Not as fast and spazzy as Freelancer was, but similar controls, missions, game feel. I like it.

As for the capturing ships (the best way to make money) you need to hire an officer that increases Trooper strength and an officer that increases teleport capacity. And at level 5 put perk point into Field Command I think its called (you get a perk every 5 levels), this increases Trooper strength as well.

Its a fun game - a sandbox universe. There is a storyline since 'launch' and I've started it, but the voice acting is... meh (you can turn off dialogue in the sound menu though!)

Oh and if an incoming ship has the rank of "IMPOSSIBLE" best..RUN. (You can divert energy to shields/weapons/engines on the fly and full engine is how I run most of the time, at least starting out.)

I don't post often but I do want to chime in here. PoE is a good, fun game for those wanting Diablo 2.5. (even has the same map!)

The skill tree is awesome though, with branches going in all kinds of directions. I've only played through the normal difficulty so far, with a Templar, but the character was surprisingly fun and unique. Tactics used included Ground Slam for hordes coming toward you, Fire(or flame) Shield so that when a horde did get to you, cast + drink heal, few seconds later when the monsters deplete the fire shield... KABOOOM! Everything around me dies.. sweet!

And my main attack caused the target to explode on death, hurting nearby enemies.

Messing around with the Scion (holy cow she has tons of skill paths) and a rogue dude that is creeping towards trap damage increases.

Good stuff.

I want this game, I really do, but somehow I have a bad feeling about it. But this can't go wrong, can it? Anyway, waiting to spend my money on release day.

Hellgate London started out like this. (ambitious, cool features, awesome graphics, ...)

Just saying.

It really is just a reason to continue milking customers for a non-subscription based game.

I do wonder what kind of profit quarterly the Auction House is making for Actibliz.

Not good. Laying off people while a game is in full production (the EQNext WoW clone), not good for them.

Usually the layoffs come near launch or after, as the artists/coders head on to greener pastures.

Its so high in U.S. because its a sin to see flesh, ergo lets see that forbidden flesh.

Its not like that in other countries (most of Europe for example), flesh is common place.

I'm a little speechless. (The scale video helps too).

I too am one of the ones who bought the other X games but have had problems getting past the controls. Maybe this weekend I'll try again... because this beast Rebirth looks epic.

I looked at the pictures on their website for the product and it only showed the original single disc for Skyrim. In the description it says it includes the expansions but they need to fix their image.

Being that the DLC's are STEAM only, I'd guess with the purchase of the anthology, the DLC's will be part of the code# you put in Steam when registering that copy of Skyrim.

It states all DLC's for Skyrim are included.

Yet another example of adding MP when nobody asked for it.

Agreed. People say it doesn't detract from the singleplayer campaigns at all but I've found that not to be the case in several games, there's often design concessions made for MP you can see in ability or level design.

Like all the DLC for Tomb Raider being MULTI only... /bonk

Zelda: Skyward Sword had a game-breaking bug. You could bug Dragon's Age and X-COM to kill progress, too.

At least, though, you can play them. Not being able to connect to servers is horrendous.

Could add Vampire: The Masquerade to that. It literlly didn't work on release to most, but post patching from fanbase has fixed, improved, and added content. If it had been a server-driven online only DRM, it never would have made a cent.

So you can play ESO and require a group of 5 to take down that Frost Atronach, or you can log into Skyrim and take one down on your own.

The MMO part is going to kill the feeling of power in the player (as most MMO's have very little power in the players hands).

Just doesn't seem like it will work to me. (or for me).

It's like XBOX live (which I never use). I pay it yearly because it's so cheap, and it's there if I need it.

Err sorry to nitpick but pet peeve with XBL, you pay for Xbox Live because you have to, they just make it seem like there's a choice

Um, I don't get this. I've had XBOX 360 for years now and never paid for the Live membershit... membership. The only thing paying gets you is chat with buddies and Netflix. (Which is a con having to pay someone else to use a service you are paying for too...)

I have work and PC's for those (respectively).
