3-4 hours?

Thats what I was thinking to, how can you find any real Emerson in a game like this if it ending just when its really getting started.

Devs need to reconsider this one in a big way.

Yea, F2P but what hooks are attached to this game? Gotta be something. Because nothing is ever really free.

The update to AoE is pretty substantial. I'm honestly surprised; that's at "whole new game" level of work. If Microsoft still owns all rights to the AOE titles, it's also not a surprise they're going to put it on their own store. What's the difference between the Windows Store, Origin, the Epic Launcher, and Uplay? Nothing, just none of them are Steam.

Thank you! Finally someone said what I've been thinking every time this issue comes up. What the hell IS the difference?! None in my eyes. STEAM, Origina, uPlay, Galaxy, freakin Stardock Central, what is the difference? They all do the same thing and I have STEAM, Origin and uPlay on my system. If a game needs one or the other, so be it. Is it a pain? No. Certainly not as much as a pain as it was to get the cd/dvd and put it in the drive and install it that way. Windows Store? Eh, whatever. Does it have games I want to play? Yup. Do I care that it's on another storefront? Nope. Do you care if you buy a game from Amazon, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, or eBay (if the price is the same)? Nope. The only problem I have ever[i had with having Origin or uPlay on my system along with Steam is that Origin kept trying to start up with Dragon Age Origin when I ran it. I renamed Origin's exe file and BOOM! Problem solved.

=-Rigs-=

The difference is, those are stickily gaming platforms for GAMES ONLY!!!

Oh joy, another version of a game being redone. So, now its the Definitive version, 5 years from now it will be the Super HD definitive version, another 5 years after that it will be the Super Duper 4K HD definitive version.

So when does all the rehashing stop and the new versions start to come out? Literally M$ and their gaming department are some of the most lazy fucks I have ever seen.

Oh, and on top of that lets make it a Win 10 exclusive for a game that was essentially brought out for Windows XP. Great going M$, you never cease to maze us with your low down stupidity and greed.

No great loss, win 10 only = avoid!

It's likely it's a DX12 title, which means Win10 only. Gears is this way too I believe.

It being a second party title I'm not really all that surprised. Regardless I'm all in on getting it for PC.

It is, and its also a bullshit plot by M$ to try and force people over to Win 10. And no, I wont buy into the fact that they say DX 12 would not work on Win 7. That's bullshit, my Card is very capable of running DX 12. MS was either to lazy or to suborn to make drives that worked on Win 7.

I'm voting for the later.

Good on them!

This is exactly what companies need to do.

Yes it is, but I would be ever more on board with this game if it had Coop. Something that said they wanted to add. But I doubt it will ever make it into the game.

No its because everyone who might buy that game is obsessed with PUBG and that style of game currently.

Other than Overwatch.

Bad timing on release. The market is different right now.

I'm mostly of this belief. To me it is incredibly difficult now to get something new established, unless you have a devote following. It has to be good, but then it has to have the whole timing/word of mouth thing going. Hey finally something a great marketing team could make a difference on, but will fail since they aren't great.

Its just another junky ass PVP game.

Having grown up with NES games that only give you a couple lives with a game that is only a couple hours long, the whole "permadeath" thing here doesn't seem like that big a deal to me. So what if you don't have time to start over from the beginning in the same sitting? Just try again later and see if you can improve on the previous run. There is nothing forcing you to keep on playing if you don't have the time.

It really doesn't have perma-death anyway, the rot mechanic is hard-limited to the shoulder and will never reach her brain, no matter how often you die. Kinda sad it was a lie by the way, because that IS an interesting game mechanic, well, it could have been one, sadly it's not in the game.

That is a shame. Looks like Darks won't be crying himself to sleep tonight after all..

piss off!

Not sure why permadeath would even be that big of a thing. Hell no one ever played Xcom on Ironman? That's how I play all of them!

Yes, but that was by choice.

They are not giving players the choice of turning this on or off. its on, and when you perma-die, it deletes the save game file.

Thats to harsh for my taste. and to that article saying is just a scarce tactic. thats BS!!

Looks amazing.... very positive reviews..... 30 bucks..... ok one of these seems off.

It's about a 6 hour long game. I think NT is simply aiming for the price point that people tend to wait to buy single player games at to get the most sales out the gate. Lawbreakers also is $30. Wondering if this is going to be a new trend.

Anyway, I'm gonna pick it up.

6 hrs? thats because the fights take 3 to 4 mins each just to kill one thing. So the reality is, the games really only about 3 hours long.

Totally lame, I really hate it when they make games where they keep you engaged in one single battle that seems endless.

Granted, the game looks great. but again its lacking.

So, I found out a few more things about the game that makes it even less appealing. Perma-death. Yes, the more you die in the game theirs a mark on your arm that keeps growing. When you die to many times it becomes permanent. OH, fuck that!!!

I don't waste my time with games like this. Hell, I wont even pirate games like this, not worth my time.

Looks like it might be ok. The world itself doesn't look very alien however.

Nothing against your comment, but just what would an alien looking world look like in your mind?

Cause none of us really know. and if a flourished world was discovered. I dont think the look of it would be to far off looking from Earths.

WTF, they haven't even finished the regular game and they are working on an expansion? No wonder the games in a shit state.

Its great that this is a free update. but they really need to get the core game fixed.

It tells me whoever actually coded this, has a fleeting grasp of BSG.

  • New Galactica vs old style 70s toaster starbases

  • No flack screens

  • Fewer fighters on screen than Xwing vs Tie Fighter

  • Capital ships that completely vaporize after a few hits with no discernible previous damage



  • I have seen way better BSG portrayals in player created mods for various old school space sims.

    Both eras of Battlestars and Base Stars are in the game and can be used for any battle. thats not the issue. The ships looks good. its the game play thats flawed.

    I just watched the video... honestly...

    WTF are you people talking about?

    Not even one single thing you people are bitching about is true of this video. The Battlestar moves like a Battlestar not a viper. there was no texture flickering. there was a couple spots where a blinking light gave than impression... but it was a BLINKINKING LIGHT not the entire video like you people are making it sound like.

    Blues posters are almost always so COMPLETELY FULL OF SHIT.

    just.. @#$*ing dude... *sigh*

    Hey jerk-wad, Im actually on the beta. and I can tell you without a doubt. the comments here are spot on. so piss off if you dont like it.
