Please buy our game now! (*)

(*) game will be released at a later time.


God, the last guys to pull that stunt, afaicr, have been EA/Origin, with an Ultima Online expansion that was literally an empty box with a piece of paper in it saying the expansion wasn't ready yet, but they were working on it! Fucking imbeciles.

Now come on Creston, some people are actually glad this was released again. Brings back some memories. I'm really annoyed that they removed MP. but that would be because they are still hosting this in Korea. Still, Local lan would have been nice to have at least.

I bought sins of the solar empire when it was new. I thought I would like it. I like space games in general. The thing that really annoyed me is the amount of rushing you have to do. If you take to long in one sector, you will lose. I hate games that make me rush and thus I threw the pos in the trash. I do not recommend this series even when it's free.

Well I wouldn't go as far as to not recommend it. I'm the same way, I hate feeling like I have to MOVE and being rushed when I set up defenses or upgrade units and stations. But the game itself is awesome and I've had every incarnation of it since it was first launched. There are many 4x space games out there but none that rival the epicness of SoaSE. For what it does, there's no equal. Just for some of us, that doesn't quite meet our needs. Not >my< way of playing, but still a good game.

=-Rigs-=

Not trying to make you mad, but you are not a very good player. I have played this game to death. We have been playing the new mod Star Trek Armada. And its a fricking great mod. And yes, you have to setup choke points and defend those until you are strong enough to move out against the AI.

I've even created a few re-balance mods for the game that make the game more about building lots of capital ships rather then building tons of frigates and cruisers.

You gotta put in the time and learn tactics. Thats whats great about this game. but as for upgrading, theirs not a lot of that to do, its all about the tech trees.

Which is a much better way then it is with games like Civilization where you have to micromanage the hell out of everything. This game allows you much more freedom to play the game.

JohnBirshire wrote on Nov 15, 2018, 20:24:
This game is an absolute trainwreck of a disaster, one of my biggest disappointments of 2018. Having loved both Ultima Underworlds, Thief, and System Shock (games the devs name dropped countless times) I couldn't wait to play this.

Within 15 minutes, I was already disgusted, but gave it a solid 4 hours before I threw in the towel. The controls feel wonky, you can't disable simple things like subtitles or mouse acceleration, game was too dark, enemy AI was atrocious, physics are bugged, graphics clip, spells don't save in your spellbook, game saves don't work at all, combat was horrendous, etc etc, this game is a failure of epic proportions.

It's literally an insult to all the games it tries to compare itself to, and needs to have that card taken away from it fast. Even seeing skills called "System Shock" and enemies named "Spectre Warren" would completely break immersion...if the game had any to begin with.

Absolute turd. As for anybody looking forward to this team making System Shock 3, end your excitement now, because it's going to be a catastrophe.

Same here, I loved all those other games too. but this one was a big disappointment. Sorry I ever backed it.

No idea what they are going on about with this. I have seen nothing broken. In fact the game looks pretty good now that im running it at FOV 100

If they are going to do crap like that and not back date achievements, then they should have just done a full character wipe to avoid these BS.

Also, anyone wanting to get the FOV and other setting to over ride. create a Fallout76Custom.ini file in the my games fallout 76 folder and add these lines to that file. also make sure you lock the file to read only or if you use VATS it will reset your FOV.

Met him and Jack Kirby, Got a Fantastic 4 Comic signed by Mr. Kirby. Met Stan at E3 several years ago, was standing by him and he spilled water on me and was very sorry for it. I said hey no problem, I got to shake his hand and now got a memory of Stan Lee thats ever lasting.

Granted, Bethesda should fix this. but still!!

Well, Bethesda's statement did say you can delete the files manually, but they recommended against doing that "unless you know what you're doing." So I guess a lot of people don't know what they're doing and will have to wait/hope Bethesda fixes this.

Seriously, how hard is it to delete folder? If someone cant figure that out then they need to stop playing games.

And why would Bethesda say something like that? Its not like its installed in a protected folder and encrypted.

I'm seriously looking forward to Halo: The RPG!

Remember that Obsidian made Knights of the Old Republic 2, but who needs a Star Wars license when you have the Halo Universe.

Good luck with that, those devs who made that game are long gone. No way in hell they ever re-produce that magic.

If you and a buddy want to play on the same server can you just choose one together?

This is very easy, you have your friend in your friends list and you can move to their server when you group up. I've done it. works very good.

Push-to-Talk [UPDATED]: While we aim to create a consistent experience no matter what platform you’re on, we understand that some of you on PC would like the option for Push-to-Talk. Our goal with voice chat being on by default is to highlight that the world is alive with real people, other players like you. We like to start with encouraging player interaction and will look into adding this in the future be adding this in the near future.

WTF? Do they not realize some people use real speakers (not crappy headphones)? Do they want people running around re-broadcasting the game audio coming out of their speakers to everyone near by?

Exactly, or having to hear someones kids running around making all kinds of noise and crying in the background. Oh yes, I have run into that bullshit when idiots run open mics.

As for the FOV, I play the game in Third person and yes you can zoom out a bit, but its not enough it needs to be adjusted a bit more to allow more zoom.

I had a great time with the beta this past weekend and can't wait for the full release!

So did I, I never saw any exploits, but I wasn't trying to do anything out of the ordinary either.

But the game was fun, plays very much like any of the other Fallout's. with some minor changes.

Blizzard is no longer a major player anymore, and their imagination and creativity have gone bye bye.

Been saying this for years now. Blizz has no interest at all in making PC games. or should I say regular PC games. They are a former shell of themselves.

With the sheer amount of money this company brings in per month, there is no reason that Diablo 4 should be hanging in the wind.

Also, you knew Blizz was in trouble and lost its touch when they cancelled the Titan project a year or two ago.
