Elite Dangerous is 10% off! Crossing my fingers for it to go lower one a 1 day sale or flash sale! I think I'll bite at $40.

This looks very good. I'm not a fan of the game but the presentation of this looks phenomenal.

Not what I'm looking for. I'm a bit confused what the actual game looks like. Went and watched some Shadow Warrior gameplay on youtube, definitely not for me.

News Comments > The Bard's Tale IV Trailer

Backed this, don't really know a thing about the game but I bought and love Wasteland 2, am backing Torment so fuck yeah, sign me up.

I also really like that they went for an amount that many devs feel is too much to ask for on Kickstarter. I've heard time and again that you have to ask for $250,000 or something like that to be successful because if you ask for 1.25m because that is what you need then people won't back it.

People will back it, you just aren't good enough to get people to back you. This is my hope for hte future of kickstarter. Start small and build and audience if you are new. Eventually people will support your in larger numbers and you can ask for big dollars up front and expand the game even more if needed.

I love a company like this coming back to kickstarter and offering this game at $20 like this. I think it's up to $27 starting now but I think it's a safe pledge at $20 and at $27.

News Comments > Fallout 4 Trailer

Eeek, I assumed this was going to be an xbox 360 / ps3 game based on that opening room. It looks like a mish mash of last gen game with some higher quality nex gen areas.

That's really disappointing. I'm sure the game will be good but a lot of stuff in that trailer is very dated.

Some people seem to be having trouble seeing it so here are a few examples to compare:

[Far Cry 3 2011](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCsNmsnoyEQ)

[Dishonored 2012](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-IDImnaklc)

[Shadow of Mordor Graphics Comparison](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-lRfkgzyj4)

That last one is what I think we're dealing with. This is a cross platform game built to run on older hardware and they upscaled it so it looks a little better and aren't releasing it on the older hardware.

Disappointing. I would have liked to see a much higher quality of graphics on display. Maybe the next elder scrolls game.

News Comments > Steam Expands Refund Policy
18. Re: Steam Expands Refund Policy Jun 2, 2015, 16:07 Tumbler
 
Better than before but 2 hours seems too short if I'm wanting to simply try a game that I might like and I'm paying $60 for that privilege.

Seems more like a "This game is terrible and i never want to play it again" safety net.

Could be interesting for a game like Evolve or Bloodborne. Those are both games I was mildly interested in trying on release. I watched some youtube clips / Twitch streams and realized pretty quick I didn't like them. Definitely realized that before 2 hours in each case.

Apologies if you support the movement and the above disclaimer offends you in any way, but try to deal with it. Arguing with me about it is fruitless: I won’t be swayed.

Well...that sums up the whole debate quite nicely. The games media knows best, so shut up you filthy misogynist gamers!

It's nice to see this pop culture feminism blowing up in their faces. I think a lot of people are seeing this as just a way to get people to pay attention to them rather than a genuine problem.

Next up, Batman! Or possibly Jurassic World...or maybe entourage. We gotta wait to see which one is most popular. Maybe we'll just complain about all of them!

DeanRheims NFS will require an online connection, but the benefits are nice. More variety and a more rewarding experience with friends.

Uh hunh. Good luck not getting fired after this ships! I'm sure it's gonna sell tons and your job will be secure so just relax and enjoy your work!

This game will probably be "good" but those driving parts just don't feel like they are part of the batman game. The fighting looks fun, the cinematic scenes look good. It's disappointing that this game seems to be all about adding the batmobile and it doesn't appear to do that well.

News Comments > CDPR: "Too Early" to Discuss Cyberpunk 2077

It could be that they've started over with the project. Who knows.

Considering how good the Witcher 3 is turning out to be, I would hope they're taking the same template and building Cyber 2077 to be just like the Witcher 3. If that means scrapping what they have so far then so be it.

News Comments > CDPR: "Too Early" to Discuss Cyberpunk 2077
16. Re: CDPR: May 27, 2015, 13:28 Tumbler
 
I'm really impressed with Witcher 3. I'm thinking about ducking out of work early today...again!, to go home and play it. It's fantastic. It reminds me of red dead redemption a lot because I'm spending a lot of time riding around on my horse and the world is so fun to explore. The side quests are really well done, I get a little annoyed with the main story quests because that get a little too wordy in their story bits. Doing side quests is fun because you can do a lot of them very quickly and there is often some very meaty content there. I'm getting spoiled burning through those and seeing so much then I come back to the main story and the game slows way down for all this talking.

The crafting system is also a lot of fun. It's just complicated enough to be interesting but getting ingredients and building things is very simple and rewarding. I love that you have to visit all sorts of different people to get all the recipes you'll need and often take them to others to let them build it.

I found a dragon too, I don't think they call it a dragon, but it was lvl 14 and was guarding a little castle. My goal is to level up to that and go get into that castle. I think there is something in there that is supposed to help me get a better set of armor.

Oh, Cyberpunk, yeah I want to see that eventually but the Witcher 3 is way more than I expected and it's got me so distracted from Cyberpunk 2077 I'm fine with them having nothing to say. Hell just make a total conversion mod for Witcher 3, this game rocks. Make more games like this.

News Comments > Mad Max Savage Road Trailer
6. Re: Mad Max Savage Road Trailer May 26, 2015, 13:59 Tumbler
 
Saw Mad Max last night finally, Holy shit, couldn't have asked for a better experience than what I got. I was amazed that most the stuff we'd seen in the trailers was basically the opening scenes. I figured we were seeing major parts of the movie and there wasn't going to be much to be surprised about.

Holy cow. Unreal how much they packed into that movie.

I'd love to see a Mad Max video game that lets me explore / live in that world. I was really looking forward to seeing those other towns they talk about in the beginning. I want to trade with bulletfarm, gas town and the Citadel! I want to raid convoy's that run between them and build my own city in the middle! I want to rule the Wasteland!!!

News Comments > Star Citizen Asset Leak
15. Re: Star Citizen Asset Leak May 25, 2015, 17:07 Tumbler
 
This leak is the most exciting news we've gotten on star Citizen in a long time. The ships look amazing. The blade medium fight and the hunter destroyer are the most impressive to me. The f8 (lightning?) is the least impressive.

Cig would be wise to share more info like this. I'm a worried that the reason they don't is because they have a long road ahead and need to keep the info going out to a minimum so they can hold out for another year or more.

News Comments > Desura Explains Missed Payments
3. Re: Desura Explains Missed Payments May 22, 2015, 10:09 Tumbler
 
I hope that this will help to allay some of the fear and anger surrounding this.

...nope. All you did is give excuses for why you're missing payments. It's a real bad sign to miss payments. You're CEO doesn't write the checks himself I assume?

Short of your servers being down I don't see why the flow of funds isn't almost completely automated. Relocating your offices might be the best excuse of them all but I assume your servers are not in your office and that side of things should be unaffected...

I assume things are falling apart over there. I'm guessing Devs will start pulling their games in big numbers next week as a precaution.

News Comments > Take-Two Suing BBC Over GTA Movie
12. Re: Take-Two Suing BBC Over GTA Movie May 21, 2015, 15:49 Tumbler
 
First I'd heard about any of this.

It appears the BBC is making a movie about Rockstar and their rise to fame and then the "fierce" opposition from parents and such regarding the violence.

The summary I read seemed to stop there which is odd because I feel like all the opposition amounted to nothing. The game is among the most successful video game franchises in history. It's crazy to suggest that the game is mired in controversy or the studio is a cause for concern.

I'm guessing they think the movie is going to try and get people upset about them again and so this is their attempt to stop it. At this point I think the public knows what htis game is, it's part of the culture (or the world) and trying to fight against that is going to look comical.

Hmm, I bought the I5-4670k last year so it looks like I'm good. Got a 970gtx last year as well.

Checking prices shows the 4590's are about $225 and the 4670 I got is $250 so I assume it's a small step up.

I'm good!

The feds would be wise to start building their own backbone infrastructure to "encourage" the corporate dead beats to do the same. Paying them to do it and then not making them do it didn't work very well.

The first thing on that list needs to be redesigning the tech... Octopus Web labyrinth.

The general idea of it makes sense, each direction is a pillar of society. (military, labor, science, etc)

I hope they can turn things around for that game. The weird little upgrade system for the units seemed fine for one Faction but having it apply to each makes them feel all too similar.
