Right there with you Blue. Moved one week ago and have a ton of crap I haven’t seen in years laying around. My wife has approximately 2476 jackets...she wears 3, etc etc. it’s sort of calming to hear everybody that moves pretty much goes through the same process of purging useless junk you’ve somehow accumulated over the years.

RIP-Gunnar-man. It's never easy to lose a member of the family. Take heart in the wonderful life you were able to provide to him.

I'm giving my sweet dog children extra love tonight in his honor.

Looks great so far! I'm hoping the non-shooty side of things has some nice depth to it. From other videos it looks like they're putting real effort into the scavenging/business game play which IMO will keep me wanting more.

Enjoyed the first but didn't love it. Didn't play the DC. I, like many have said here, thought the loot, itemization system was it's biggest flaw. In general, I'm not a fan of opening the 374th lockbox that you had to fight to get to and find another pair of worn leather gloves, 2 empty cans, and a slice of cheese... over, and over, and over. I know hand placed loot has issues with multiple replays but I'd rather have it in my RPGs.

*"cloth maps or posters or what not. The excitement of waiting for the release. Driving to the mall and buying it. Driving home and opening it."

Hell yeah, the Ultima VI Britannia map was hung from my wall for many years, there was a DOOM level set that came with a sick skull poster that was up there too.

I remember where I used to live, there was a video game rental shop (before Blockbuster and what have you) and they actually rented PC games (with the box). I used to wade through those games like I do with record shopping.

Still one of my favorite games from that era was The Magic Candle, that came with an awesome map as well (and manual).

Here's the map - http://magiccandle.wumple.com/files/mc1/mc1map.jpg It was one of the few games I remember where you actually needed to camp and some could go hunt, some could keep watch over the camp while others rested, etc - and later in the game it was imperative to split up party members for certain quests/tasks.

Just looking at that map and thinking of the Ultima cloth map gets me all tingley inside. I can see myself sitting in front of the computer, late at night, just excited as heck to find out what adventures are waiting in those treacherous lands.

About 5 more years and Elite Dangerous might actually be a game instead of the empty, dead shell of a game I got conned into buying at release.

An interesting period of time to read about. My WW2 book collection grew for many years, but I was morbidly fascinated by all of it - I have memoirs told from perspectives of multiple sides, tombs on specific aircraft or other technology, and any movie I could get my hands (including hard to find foreign imports from Finland and Japan). At the human no one truly wanted to kill another human, but had to given their situations - they describe horrors I never hope to witness. It astonishes me more how leaders on all sides manipulate people to do what is nothing more than legalized murder (which is what one WW1 person had the courage to say) - something that the Smedley Butler touched on as well (who was heroic for telling the truth). It's still sad today to see those truths more relevant than ever since war benefits the few who profit off manipulation and death;. The madness of Imperialism.

Here is an account of Heinrich Severloh: Just a 20 year old kid thrown into the war, he became known as the "Beast of Omaha" and was one of the last Machine Gunners still firing over an insane 9 hours. He and 2 others managed to survive. He later became friends with David Silva much later after the war who was shot on a part of the landing 3 times.

Interesting read Task. Thanks for posting.

I gave up toward the end. There was something about the levelling and loot which meant that I never felt like I was actually getting any stronger, and all the weapons felt similar without lacking any real identity or rareness that made them interesting.

I didn't find the story particularly engaging either.


Totally agree. And the massive, over worded lore dump had me falling asleep. Load times were a joke. Homogenized classes. Ugh. Having classes that sucked at certain things or weren't able to do some tasks made for interesting strategy. Muscle wizard?! WTF Sawyer?!

I wanted to love this game more then any other in recent memory. BG2 had its flaws but I loved it and was really waiting for POE to kick butt. Maybe they'll save the day with 2 but I'm waiting on this one.

Anybody put time into Evochron Legacy? Apparently it's an Elite/X game with depth, all done by one guy. Haven't had the time to explore it yet but going to give it a shot after my Witcher 3 playthrough is done. There's a demo as well.

Personally I think E:D is highly overrated and with the stunt they pulled with the pricing on their "expansion" they should get all the heat atm. I paid way too much for a shell of a game with the original E:D and now they ask me to pay the exact same amount again for adding just a tad more depth to a game that was as shallow as a Tunisian mudpuddle to begin with.

My thoughts exactly. So disappointed in E:D.

I also played it a lot at launch but got burned by it. I expected a lot deeper non-MP stuff and it's just not there. I have no time to allocate to complex MP play, I just want to be able to do interesting SP missions and go through a story.
I'll wait until the content is there, assuming that by then the learning curve hasn't gotten so long and steep that it's become essentially useless for the time-challenged player.

I'm pretty much right there with you. I was disappointed in the target drone, non persistent NPCs, zero depth economy (which seemed odd considering a large part of the play can be space trucking), mission design, non-reactive universe. Loved the feeling of "flying" a spaceship though. They nailed that IMO. Haven't played since a few months into launch. Hopefully it's getting some much needed depth because I WANT to love it. Certainly wasn't the game they advertised at release though.

Can any current players comment? Has the game come alive (NPCs, missions, economy?) since a few months into launch.

Got suckered into buying this shallow tech demo POS. Won't happen again. Still praying they make it the game I thought I was buying at release.

My hopes for a living universe to tool around in lie with Star Citizen and god only knows how that's going to turn out.

Witcher 3 fell off that list. Such an amazing game.

It's also a hugely demanding game. Much more so than even GTAV, which sells like hotcakes anyway. You need quite a beefy rig to run it at settings to do it justice. Im sure it will sell much better at a later date when it goes on sale, and when people's hardware is a bit better in general.

Yep. I haven't purchased it yet due to waiting for skylake to release before I upgrade my old q9650/7870/4gb ram system. Still might go with the 4790 or 5820 but the prices will drop with skylake hitting the market. It's killing me holding off though. Very hard not to read any spoilers!
