All I want from Avalanche is a Mad Max 2. As easy as it can be to make a sequel for it, I'm fully aware that they can screw it up as well (Just Cause 4). I also tried Rage 2 and ended up refunding it. Just couldn't get into the over the top that they were going for. Was a little too much..

The combat mechanics of Rage2 are incredible, better than any other games. Too bad about the awful story and even worse open world.

It would have been a much better game had they added Coop. Coop somehow always makes games like this more fun and better.

Anyone doing that sort of shit should die anyway but in this case the various govt's of the world should agree to share intel, use agents and military to track these fuckers down and terminate them with extreme prejudice wherever they may be.


I've said that for years now, These guys are the real threat to society, once you take them out with some hit teams they will go away if they know their asses are next. In stead the Govt seems more interested in taking down a pirate site for hosting a movie or a game.

Uh yes, we are. First off, when this thing is done people will see it's not even as bad as common A and B strains. Second, it's not the bubonic plague. Third, after every catastrophe or near death experience everyone always says 'Oh this changes everything!' and a few weeks or months later everything's back to normal. People have short memories.

You really want to change things? Isolate China socially and economically and force them to change everything. Otherwise it'll be yet another pandemic from them sooner than later. They're the major problem on this planet today for too many reasons.

On China, I total agree. After this is all said and done, all eyes need to turn back on to China. Its high time the world finally puts them in their place and cuts them off economical and put an end to their reign. Time to cut that cord.

Sin episodes was almost fun. I loved the start, but then bullet sponges appear, with the sole episode lacking a powerful weapon and leaving you always short on ammo. Too often you run instead of shoot because you just lack the bullets

Didn't this game have Coop?

For some reason, I thought it did. But it only shows pvp.

Pretty sure this is E3's death knell. Publishers are going to move to video streaming to announce their products. There's no need for an industry trade show like E3. It made sense 20-30 years ago, but today, not so much.

No, not true at all. There still is that public face that needs to be upheld, and this is how you get media attention for your products and the public's interest.

What your saying is that Comic Con and Blizz Con will come to an end, and that will never happen.

The amount of money the City and revenue thats generated for the city will always come first. Plus people love getting out and doing these types of events, so do publishers its a way to get a way.

I think more whats going to happen is that E3 will go back to what it used to be, a lot more closed and and only those in the industry will be allowed to attendant.

Yeah, it was so promising (IMO anyway) before release. They really must not have any QA...

This engine, or at least the art style and graphics, would have been awesome to watch flourish. What's odd to me, though, is that the game looked great 5 years ago when it kickstarted as Umbra. And then they canned it and started over, practically?

Yea, they did. It was more of an open world game and thats what pissed off a lot of people too when they changed it. I've seen this game go thorough at least three major changes to where its at now. I back this game a long time ago. only cost me 15 dollars. That my only consolation at least.

Another thing I forgot to add was about Gear and Sockets. Yea, this part is pretty stupid, So some gear like weapons and a Chest piece can have three Sockets, you go over the the vendor and what do they make you do? Yea, you want three Sockets? Good luck getting the type of Socket you want, you have three types. Def 1, 2 and 3 yea have fun with that shit getting three of the same type of sockets for a piece of gear.

And it cost, you can lose a big chunk of gold trying to get some good sockets. So lame!!!

I wonder if the game will be able to sustain itself long enough for them to fix everything. Massive steam user drop since launch, as many bugs NOW than there were at launch as patches have broken key end-game systems like expeditions. No cash shop yet so no income there to support the game. That they can only put out one patch a week because of the regulations of the company that run the game servers is extremely unfortunate. Perhaps absurd.


Honestly, I love games like this, but It got so boring after a while. The Boss fights were not balanced very well and were some of the hardest fights I have ever been in.

Gold drops in the game are so pathetic, it is very hard to get gold. Having to pick up every piece of loot and make endless runs back and forth to town just takes a lot of the fun out of the game. I felt more like a junk man constantly hauling items back to town more often then fighting just to earn gold.

The End game stuff is so stupid how its implemented, it would be OK if they didn't require a shit ton of gold to research projects. Devs were more worried about a gold exploit and fixing it then fixing the mainline issues in the game.

Being honest, the game has lost a lot of players becasue of the sheer greediness of the devs to implements these high end game instances that dont pay out very well, they want you to grind the game to death to earn anything. For the life of me, I dont know why this developer didn't learn a damn thing from blizzards mistakes.

Blizz did some of the same stupid shit when D3 was released, but after a year and the removal of the market, they fixed the gold drops so that Gold was not even an issue anymore. The players could concentrate on enjoying and playing the game. This is something these devs have totally missed and why their game is failing.

I would not be a bit surprised if this game is dead within a year. Why opt as an indie developer to use a online hosting service and spend a lot of money per-month on a game thats Coop? That to me makes no sense at all.

Once this game is dead, so is Coop, say goodbye to it becasue there will not be anyway to play Coop again once they pull the plug.

I'm having bad flashbacks to Sword Coast Legends. Sure feels like the same mistakes they made happening all over again.

Deadly Dozen Pacific Theater was actually a pretty fun game Coop. Wondering if this game will be released too. DD is on steam now for 10 dollars. But that one was SP only.

I swear, seeing stuff like this getting released makes me feel like im living in the 90's again. Steam is so over bloated from this low level game trash.

So tired of seeing it on my steam page all the time. I keep ignoring these types of games, but yet more keep showing up. UGH!!!

Take all my money!

From the screenies (which looks great), looks like they're doing both RTWP and Turn Based, an option for the player which one they want? I'm fine with that.

I'm fine with the past tense narrative for those conversation options; I suspect some people won't be given the setting and that it's DnD.


dude, I really , really hope so. but I'm not confident about it. We will see in a few hours though.

Well, I can tell you without a doubt that this game is going to be TB. So sad and disappointed, you can see in those screenshots that there is an AP section. "Action Points". I really hope I'm wrong, but it sure looks like its going to be TB

Just like DOS has. I worried that Larian being in control of this, they would go the stupid route of ruining a great game and turning ins to some fucked up TB game. Fuck!!!!

Yes, it will probably still be a good game, but fuck me, I really was hoping for a good real time Coop action adventure game like NWN.

Update: Actually on the second screenshot, you can see at the top of the shot, Turn Based. SMH!
