Can anyone recommend this game?

Also, speaking of RTS'... a sleeper game from Petroglyph came out, reminiscent of Command and Conquer. 8-Bit Armies

http://steamcommunity.com/app/427250

Yes, this is a really good game. I especially like the game now that they added the Reboot version. it goes back to the original formula of Act of War. 10X better now.

The Devs have also been adding new maps over the past 6 weeks. more to come too.

25% off coupon over at GMG, bringing the cost to $30. If Doom wasn't launching in 2 days... ugg. Too many games.

I'd love it if I could get a 25% off DOOM. Still on the fence and that would prob tip it over. 30$ for this is way too tempting. Oh yea don't forget Uncharted 4 came out this week.

you can, its called G2A.com and its about 34 dollars on their site.

If this game was more like Sins of the Solar Empire, I would be all in. I watched a playthrough of it on YouTube and it's one of those games that takes weeks to play though. Not the kind of game I'm looking for.

I just don't have the time nor patience for these types of games anymore.

In their defense, the government IS trying to keep the population down.

Way to late UBI, you have bigger problems then the cheaters now, most have already abandoned the game because of this bullshit. I haven't touched the game in weeks. Might not ever again either.

I knew this was going to be an issue from the start. How did two veterans in the industry not know that they needed to have a full on demo to show off what they are trying to sell to get their game funded is beyond me.

This is exactly why I did not fund them until I saw something in place. All talk and no substance will kill you everytime.

News Comments > The Elder Scrolls Online DLC Plans

Ive actually been enjoying Guild Wars 2. Have several toons at lv 80 now. They did a change to make leveling up much faster and they gave anyone who owns the add on a lv 80 token to upgrade any of your chars. The cool thing too about this was the way they did it.

You get to test any char you own on the realm at level 80 for free and they outfit your char will all lv 80 uniques, full load out, weapons, armor and rings and Enhancements to the slots. If you had to buy all of these items in the market it would cost you well over 100 Gold.

After you make your choice you get to keep all the items too and a bunch of other things they tossed in.

Pretty cool of them to do that.

Had forgotten about this game, was watching Ashes of the Singularity gameplay recently and it just occurred to me how similar that game is to this one.

Ashes is $40, wonder what this one is now...$49.99 on steam. Wonder what it is on Amazon. It's not! Only steam I guess. Good lord, $49.99 is too much for that today.

See you on the steam summer sale!

Yea the price is still to steep. I've been trying to get a copy of G2A and its full price there too. No idea why this game is so pricy.

Wetworks wrote on Apr 18, 2016, 00:44:
I have no idea why they are putting such an emphasis on mp. Doom mp was never the selling point. The single player campaign is what most people who think of Doom care about. To devote an entire season pass to the mp and not single player or possibly some cool co-op pve type modes is a complete fail.

Simplistic arena shooters will never be more than a few hours of fun for the majority of the player base.

I'll go with this comment. I despise PVP so I won't be buying the pass. most likely won't be buying this game either from the sounds of it. I'll wait it out until there's a 5 or 10 dollar sale. So disappointing to see all the emphasis on MP.

Anyone have issues with the way the camera works? I find it to be a bit wonky, it likes to jump around in combat and that drives me nuts. I just want it to stay in one place.

Whats the best class to play as? I tired the Thief, but I find them to squishy. Is there a ranges type char besides the Mage? Are mages worth a damn?

I seriously don't see any resemblance to Doom 1 or 2 at all. It's very much the same as Doom 3 with added quicktime events and mixed in with some of Quake 3 style multiplayer. Which looks slow paced and boring.
Not even close to Q3. Movement is totally messed up.

I take it that you must have played the new Doom to make that comment? Movement is messed up like how?

Have fun living in your bubble where you can cower and hide from the realities and issues of the day.

Science fiction and fantasy literature have always been about real life issues. It's by putting the story in a setting where the trivialities and rules of the universe can be skipped to focus on telling the story, which have always - in the best sci-fi and fantasy - been about the times and people and the world and all issues therein.

Apparently it's you that's living in a bubble, most common people prefer to not deal or hear about this lame bullshit. It does not have a place in gaming where people are trying to most likely place their political views and cramming them down everyone's throats.

Which would explain why Star Trek was such an unpopular and short lived series: using science fiction as a way to understand ourselves and the present is something no one wants. Oh wait, we're talking about one of the longest lived and most popular institutions of popular culture, one which even had an episode exploring what life is like for transgender people, in 1992!

Good fiction writing is NEVER purely escapist, because otherwise it would mean the writer has nothing on his or her mind which the writing is a response to; if you don't have ideas, then your story doesn't have anything to say. When a story says nothing about our lives in the real world, it isn't good writing. That doesn't mean a story needs to be a response to hot button issues, but it does mean that it could, for example, explore the guilt that comes from an irreversible mistake: immersing yourself in the experience of such a character tells you a LOT about how you live your own life.

If all you want out of literary media is to slay dragons, you're living an impoverished life. Full stop.
Indeed. People like Darks were the ones who complained about women working or, in Saudi Arabia, driving cars. Imagine a game about a woman with a job! Or a female driver in a movie, it's outrageous!

Blow it out of your ass Bludd, don't even try to stereotype me into that cast. You know nothing about me so just shut the fuck up right now!

The only thing that interests me is the single player, which won't actually be complete on release. It'll take a long time before they create the whole campaign. Also, it's basically Borderlands, but with no loot. Loot MADE Borderlands. Without it, it's not much more than a generic shooter with serviceable gameplay. I watched TB's playthrough of it and it only confirmed this. ZERO interest in all these MOBA clones, regardless of the coat of paint or perspective.

This game is not just that, it also has a campaign to play Coop with friends. The PVP part is what I avoid to, not my cup of tea.

I'm just looking forward to playing the Storyline Coop.

The ending is terrible, worse than ME3 apparently. One of my buddies finished the campaign yesterday and said it would be the last thing from beamdog he'd ever buy.

Ouch, that bad!!

Increased costs for converting crafting materials and crafting High-End items:

  • 10 Standard (Green) materials instead of 5 to craft 1 Specialized (Blue) material

  • 15 Specialized (Blue) materials instead of 5 to craft 1 High-End (Gold) material

  • 10 High-End (Gold) materials instead of 8 to craft 1 lvl 31 High-End (Gold) item

  • Changed deconstruction yield of Standard (Green) and High-End (Gold) items:

  • Deconstructing a Standard (Green) item yields 1 Standard material instead of 2

  • Deconstructing a High-End (Gold) item yields 1 High-End material instead of 2

  • They didn't just increase the cost of crafting the best items, they're fucking all high-level crafting across the board, hard. As if you didn't already have to craft everything multiple times just to get something usable out of the RNG...

    Still considering how easy it is to get crafting materials I still stand by my statement. 2 more gold items to craft high end stuff is nothing. Blues and green's are cake.

    Elf, I know you probably have as much time in the game as I do. but these changes are NOT for the better.

    Its totaly shit what they are doing. This is what it's going to cost you to DE and craft now.

    10 GREEN = 1 BLUE - Vs the 5 it used to cost

    15 BLUE = 1 GOLD - 10 plus more vs the 5 it used to cost

    So the conversion is now this on what the total cost will be.

    150 GREEN = 1 GOLD

    No matter how you slice it, this is NOT for the betterment of the game.
