For the life of me I will never understand this underhanded bullshit they pull with later releases for the PC over consoles.

Such bullshit!

+1

I had no idea they were that Fning Stupid. They will lose 40% of their sales minimum.

From the FAQ:

Q: What about Steam?
A: Stay tuned – we’ll have more to share in the future.


Of course it might still require Windows 10

I highly doubt it Prez, M$ wants to shove that garbage OS down everyone's throats. Remember that other FPS title a while back that was Win 10 exclusive but the devs pulled out of their market and released a win 7 version?

That about the only way this game will ever see steam.

Trust me on this one!

It's absolutely real gameplay. But half the systems aren't built yet and the environments are limited to what we're seeing. They hope to keep graphical fidelity as they increase things that take resources by optimizing, but it won't happen. And, during crunch, God knows what gets cut.

But walk into bioware today and that build is absolutely playable as is.

Thank you Beamer, I'm not going to sit here and spill lies t everyone. I do indeed have a good friend who worked on that demo. Hes completely stressed out because they were under a lot of pressure to get that done.

He confirmed to me that the demo was all in game and live

This definitely isn't real gameplay. The game will play somewhat like this, but this is basically just a huge cutscene. With that said, if this IS representative of the final gameplay, this is terrible. There's no gameplay... It's just an interactive movie with constant scripted cutscenes. There's also zero player choice, no conversation trees... Nah. What happened to you Bioware?

So, just fro ma 6 min video you already gathers all that information? Yea, OK!!!

yeah. Any questions?

Nope, just correcting you and saying that you are completely wrong about the game. I contacted a friend of mine who works for BioWare. I asked him about that trailer. this is what he said.

It's pretty obvious that the demo starts as an in-game cinematic until you get outside. At that point, it's people actually playing the game, though they are following a script and a set path.

So, yea you are wrong. yes they followed a script, but it wasn't scripted like you are saying. It was live and with live Coop players joining them.

No way in hell this is 'real gameplay'. I have not played an MMO in the last 5 years where the other players ever spoke like that. Far too few racial or gender slurs. No swearing. No teens screaming a stream of obscenities so vitriolic it would make a dock worker blush.

I'm calling it now. Totally fake, totally unrepresentative of the final product (which will be a bland Destiny rip-off with Mass Effect combat model by the looks of things).
It's an E3 trailer, there's nothing real about it.

But I have a friend who knows a man that wears a hat while walking down the street and he said...

Yea whatever morons! keep talking and showing us how stupid you all are. This is in game footage, if you dont think so then tough fucking shit on you!!!

What I told you is fact about the game. In fact those who worked on this demo footage are all on break right now because of all the hard work they put in to get this ready for E3. So to those who dont like it. piss off!!

Once you've been around the block a few dozen times, you'll notice some obvious patterns. Don't worry, one day you'll get some experience.

Piss off! I've been around the block and then some junior!

Two things, I'm betting this will be on Win 10 only. and that online Coop split screen will take a lot of heat from players.

No idea why they want to put the player into a split screen while playing over the internet. Thats just stupid. Use a smaller PIP if needed, but not half my screen.

Well, goody two shoes for your 10 year old. And this just reaffirms my first comment. Boring!!!

Ah no, its defiantly a pay to win game, have you seen the packages they are offering? Absolutely terrible!!

And something easily forgottem, MTG has a deep lore, if you remove the cards and basically convert it into a living breathing fantasy world it could be an absolutely mind-blowing RPG. But yeah, what are the chances these 2 devs of all the devs manage THAT?

If they're smart (which admittedly I've no evidence they can be on a consistent basis), they've been making use of the "Planeshift" supplements WotC put over the last year or so as a starting point to help them. Those should give them at least some sort of grounding for a standalone RPG while helping them get a handle on the lore. Again, that's if they're smart.

Belive me, their not!

The free edition doesn't include the coop missions, which is the only thing interesting about this game to me. Edit: Yes, you can purchase the story mode by grinding in-game credits, but I don't want to play the competitive multiplayer.

That just makes the game even more less appealing. I own the game, played it though once and that was enough for me. The game failed in so many ways.

Its one of those titles I really wish I had never bought. Misleading and was thought to be a successor to Borderlands, but big time failed on that note.

Has? Dude they been long gone for a long time now. Blizz is a former shell of itself, they dont make games worth a shit anymore. They are more concentration with over-watch now or hearthstone.

I've pretty much lost all respect for them, and dont support them any more.

I'm not sure why anyone would crowdfund an MMO. MMOs are very expensive to make. No amount of crowdfunding will be enough to completely fund an MMO's development or upkeep. $11 million is nothing. The average AAA game costs at least $40 million and that's just for a 10 hour single-player campaign.

Yeah, but the KS wasn't about an MMO. This "downgrade" has been gifted to backers out of nowhere.

And indeed, for $11m -fees you aren't gonna make a MMO which is why the original KS was for a SP game!

This gives you some idea why people are REALLY sour on this one.

When I backed this game on KS it was going to be a single-player RPG. Then it morphed into a pseudo-MMO with a huge, bloated cash shop and virtual goods rivaling Star Citizen in price. As the game "developed" the virtual goods just got more and more outrageous in price. They've spent so much time on milking people via the cash shop that could have been spent on developing the core game. Right now, the game is nowhere near ready for launch in its current state.

I also backed this, but I dont ever recall the game not being MP. I backed it because it was going to have Coop.

But after backing it and then seeing what they released. I have always regretted backing this game. Its been such a disappointment. the game play and graphics just sucks to no end.

I reinstall the game ever y so often and load it up hoping that something has finally changed, that its gotten better but my hopes are always smashed.

To be honest about Tabula, that was a pretty good game, but after they went in and changed the game with that one patch that screwed up the weapons. It sucked from that point on. I was surprised they didn't resurrect this game with a free to play model. It may have survived if they did that.

Its mind boggling that they dont expand the game or add more content to explore. just lame as hell from what used to be a great company. all they care about now is match making and overwatch.

Or is GTFO the new 'gold standard' of how they will respond to their customers?

LOL, I'm wondering when hes going to drop the bomb on everyone after they buy into the game that there will be pay to win transactions.

These guys defiantly set a bad president on their rep with that lying ass bullshit they pulled on the community.
