Before anyone gets their hopes up, the trailer is just a cinematic trailer.

Yes, we all want it. There's a difference between wanting something and adamantly demanding it.
Demand is just a greater form of want, in this case. Valve is free to deny it, of course, but when they do so, then they're intentionally being jackass story authors.

Either we'll eventually get HL3 from Valve, or we'll never get it (by the way, the notion that they "owe" making that game to their customers is quite a silly one). It's pretty much as simple and clear-cut as that.

Duh Derrp
Sadly I must agree with Parker. They broke up the story into parts and then ended it on a cliffhanger, telling everyone that it would be a 3 part story. If they had just stopped after HL2 with an open ending, that would be one thing. But there is no ending to Ep2; it just stops, to be continued in Episode 3.

Obviously we can't force Valve to do anything. But you're a jackass of an author if you sell your customers the first part of the story and then decide, on your own volition, that you don't want to work on the rest. (Just imagine of Lucas decided to stop after Empire Stikes Back, or Abrams stops after Episode 8...)
Valve owes nobody nothing, to think otherwise is unrealistic.

EXAMPLE
My favorite restaurant makes the best Denver Omelette in the known underverse. If they were to take it off the menu, or quit serving breakfast all together they would still not owe me an omelette.

I have never understood the entitled gamer argument.
You're comparing, well, eggs and media. One you instantly consume, and you either have all of it or you don't. A narrative has multiple parts, is consumed sequentially, and takes time to do so.

The problem isn't that we want Valve to make Ricochet 2, where the original Ricochet was a complete product. The problem is that we want Valve to finish the incomplete product they sold us in the first place.

Retarded Valve fanboi makes retarded statement. Cute.

Meanwhile in the real world, Valve very much owes HL fans the promised conclusion of HL2 a.k.a episode numero tres, of course, OR a really good and mature explanation why the fuck it's not happening.
They extorted billions of dollars from people based on the promise of a continuation of the storyline in episodic format.

Absolutely open world, yep. "GTA with LEGO" is a spot-on way to wrap your head around it, even if there are (obvious) differences. There's the city/world space to wander around, and the missions are more what you're used to from TT games: it's a really nice combination.

And I agree, the game is an absolute blast.
I third the motion. It was a solid game, albeit one unfortunately overlooked since it came out in the Wii U's lifecycle so early.

Why did they abandon the Brothers in Arms IP? Those games were so much fun.
Because WW2 was done to death.

Eh. If we make it to truly autonomous cars, then carrying insurance will become mandatory. So you'll sue the owner, as they hold the car's insurance policy.

Think of it like suing a kid's parents for the actions of said kid.

Seeing how they're giving full refunds, I doubt anyone's getting paid? Btw, it IS a classy move they're giving people their money back.
Agreed. Even with my general misgivings about the ongoing about of Early Access by developers, this one is doing the right thing. And when so many others cannot, that's noteworthy.

Being that it's Arc System Works (The guys behind the beautiful spritework in the Guilty Gear and BlazBlue fighting games) I'm really disappointed they went with the classic 8 bit look to be honest. I would have loved a Double Dragon with their modern style 2D art.
Agreed. Double Dragon NES's artwork was not a defining element of the game, unlike Mega Man or River City Ransom. So using it for a new game doesn't help the game at all..

FWIW I liked Descent and what was the other one like this? Foresaken that was huge back in the early days of GPU's? Crazy fps's.

Both of the updates talked about in here look pretty good to.
The future is Forsaken.

Well it's a game that takes place in mining tunnels. So yeah, I'd hope there's some boring going on.

Considering PDX is the airport code for Portland, Oregon, and that there's already a PDX LAN event, this event seems poorly named.

Given the game came out years ago, this seems oddly timed. But I appreciate the gesture.

Wonder what this uses for wireless communications. HDMI 1.4 + USB 3.0 is a lot of bandwidth
Likely WiGig or another 60GHz tech. Technically it's line of sight, but a human should be squishy enough that it would work.

Anyone tried this out yet, though?

Ashes in the beta was... underwhelming. But there was an inkling of promise.
It's definitely a step up. Whether it's enough to scratch that itch for everyone remains to be seen.

A fantastic game, and a lot more fun than base FC3. In fact I'm a bit disappointed they didn't do something similarly streamlined as a FC4 shoot-off.

I was surprised that this game was free. It's not that old.
It was a budget game to begin with, so it didn't have as far to drop.
