Well that just ruined my day, once I saw Cryptic/Perfect World was involved. The master of deception and monetizing games to death just kills any expectation you might have for a good game.

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.

Hang on, they are charging for the Necro? Really? Oh man, has Blizzard gone down the tubes or what...

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.

For me, this is absolutely useless without significant new content.

Same here, this is nothing more then another pitch and sell.

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.

So since he's the game designer, was he in charge of lies about micro-transactions, absurd amount of pay to win bullshit?

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.

The problem with snipers in shooters is it encourages camping. No one wants to venture out only to get picked off. It's boring.

You do realize this game does not have PVP? Some time down the road, yes it will. But this discussion is about the core games PVE.

I don't see why everyone is already complaining about the cloaking enemies in this - considering what kind of tech we got in Future Soldier after all. Sure, that was a "near future" style world, but we aren't that far away from that technology being usable in the field. Plus, its a game after all

People whine, just to whine. There is nothing wrong with the Cloaked Snipers, in fact they add a new element to the game that makes you think before rushing in.

Played for about 2 hours last night and we had a pretty good time. the new enemies and the newer AI difficultly is pretty challenging.

Glad to see they hit this milestone... And for those that have yet to get it, it's currently at 50% off on Humble Store (12.49 USD).

As a fan of all three recent major ARPGs (D3, PoE, GD), I appreciate what each brings to the table/genre...

And I'm looking forward to the expansion... Which I hope/expect has new content along with the two new classes, and I'm eager to check out each (though also worried they'll be badly balanced initially, making later nerfs/buffs more painful).

I could never understand this balancing bullshit in PvE games with no PvP. Blizzard likes to go on about it in Diablo3, it's total bullshit. Either a class works or it doesnt. Talk about buffs and nerfs in PvE games with increasing difficulty curves is just fluff for poorly designed games.

That was the primary reason I left D3. The constant re-shuffling of the classes, one patch this toon is the uber class, the next patch this toon is. And on top of that making all current gear obsolete in the prcoess. I just got so sick and tied of that bullshit.

The fact is and Blizz fails to understand it or they just dont give a damn, is that all classes should be balanced the same, one class should never be doing millions of damg per crit hit where as another toon cant and is mostly being setup as a support toon.

Blizz turned D3 into a fricking MMO wanna be. its a fricking disgrace to the franchise how they lobotomized this once beloved game.

This game is so much better and a far superior game to Bilbo 3.

The settings and the environments are so much better looking and unique. unlike Bilbo 3s where they rehash the shit out or each area and dungeon setting.

Plus the story is better too and looks 10 times better.

Arthur is a really nice guy and actually listens to what the community has to say.

During the early Alpha of the game, I was the one who actually suggested to him that they add the move button to the game and he added it. I really appreciated that. one of the best features ever for these types of games.

IDK, I really don't care for the camera angles I'm seeing. plus it looks like its going to be hard to play and a bit to dark.

Plus did you notice in the clip the fireballs targeting the player did not miss him at all even though he was trying to doge it? That to me doesn't bode well for the game play if the AI seems always spot on.

Played it for a bit, and yes its similar to RUSE, which I liked a lot. but really couldn't stand WarGame.

So, I'm really on the fence with this game. I really cant stand games that try to use a supplies as a resource to keep your units going. it just drags the game down and deters you from the true experience of the game.

Id rather these guys stick to making RTS games like AOW and AOA

Those are really fun games, but the devs gave up on AOA for this game which was really disappointing. Plus they never released any map tools so that pretty much killed AOA.

The developer previously did this game, so I would expect something similar but using the license (it actually fits the setting quite well). That game was not terrible, here's my video review of Star Hammer.

I really hope they dont use that game play type. that just sucks to no end. I'm hoping its going to be more like Sins and real time.

Brynjolf wrote on May 16, 2017, 12:56:
So I've been playing the Surge for another 7h since last night (11 total) and i still stand by my first impression: It's good.

It certainly is no Dark Souls but that's not neccessarily a bad thing in this case, and I am a huge Souls fan, probably around 2k hours on Demons Souls to Dark Souls 3, including Bloodborne.

It is slightly friendlier to the player, having an option to pause combat and with the proficiencies that will keep levelling up, no matter if you die or not.

But to answer your question, there are a lot of things I don't like about LOTF not limited only to:
Slow reacting character, animations too long, exaggerated heaviness, mushy camera controls, weird animations in cutscenes, just to name a few that spring to mind right away.

And yesterday I installed it again (with 65min played previously) and tried to keep an open mind, not even expecting a game of the quality of the Souls series and just seeing is as a 3rd person action rpg.

Still couldn't do it. ANd my biggest problem about games like this is that with a handful of tweaks it could have been good (cutscenes and voice acting excluded ofc.), and it makes me quite sad thinking of the time, money, creativity and passion people invested in a game of this size.

This is all a very personal opinon ofc and as mentioned based on only about an hour of playtime, wjhich for core mechanics is enough tho.

Is the game all Melee? or are there ranged type weapons? Not really into stickily melee type games.

The DLC has been crap so far. There is suppose to be a pvp mode (which I look forward to), but they really need to add a King of the Hill/H1Z1/Player Unknown mod to keep this game from being stale.

And way better helicopter controls.

Didn't much care for the add on either, but I am looking forward to this one. it sounds pretty kewl having to try and survive.
