I enjoy the TW series of games but know nothing of the Warhammer universe.

Would I be lost in this game with all the units etc?

Meh. I am more interested in Ghost Recon Wildlands and the Homefront sequel.

I view the CoD series as reskinned versions of games past. Corridor shooters and on rail vehicle segments. Yawn.

I want variety and options in my gameplay. The blockbuster games just don't do it for me any longer as I get older.

I always wanted a modern take on Red faction guerrilla. I hope this is it.

Pysonix is a San Diego company. (my hometown and current residence.)

I hope they continue doing well.

Probably won't throw money at them for this DLC

Boy, are you in for a surprise! :p

Love this game and company, will forever support (even when they don't ask for it).

It's on the taskbar.

After installing Windows 10, the little white and black icon that looks like a paper bag with the MS logo on it is the app store.

I actually like it a ton, really only having two minor complaints.

But I've had it for two months and don't even know where the Windows Store is, let alone have any interest in finding it and finding things on it. I've never seen anything in W10 advertising it or pushing me to it or even linking to it. I literally wouldn't know it exists if not for everyone discussing what a failure it is (those could also be connected.)

I don't really mind Windows 10. It's been okay for me so far.

But I will not be buying games in the Win10 app store. Was burnt by GFWL so no more buying into MS.

Too bad really. Was wanting to play this game.

Thanks! Probably will give this a try anyways. L4D has grown stale on me and need something to fill the zombie killing void.

Funny, I had ALL these games on GameTap when it was in it's prime (and still around).

Sad really, it was an excellent gaming service...when it worked.

No, there is no cockpit view.

Can you play in cockpit mode?

P.S. Origin has no user reviews? What kind of digital distribution platform has no user ratings? Weak.

Rebellion fanboy derp is strong with this one.

I liked SE2, played a little of SE3 but the gameplay just felt repetitive.

As with you, I was hoping for another timeline in history. I posted a comment on their fb page about it and you would have thought I told them to make a game sniping puppies and kittens.

jdreyer wrote on Mar 8, 2016, 03:17:
I'm kind of feeling this was a missed opportunity. This is the fourth game set not just in WW2, but in the European/North African theater of WW2.
The. Fourth.

Never mind that there's an amazing game Sniper Elite game which could be set during the Vietnam war or the Korean conflict, or even during the Iraq War. If you must stay in WW2, what about the Pacific theater? Missions could be set in the Philippines, colonial Shanghai, Guadalcanal, and on Iwo Jima. The change of theater would be both refreshing and open up new tactical possibilities.
Or what about the Eastern Front? The siege of Stalingrad could contain an entire game itself. Ever hear of Vasily Zaytsev? The guy put up video game number kills in real life.

News Comments > Warframe Sands of Inaros Update
1. Re: Warframe Sands of Inaros Update Mar 4, 2016, 23:37 maddog
 
I've been dabbling in this game for about six to eight months now and I am still not quite sure what I am supposed to be doing.

I am completing missions and getting some new gear but my question for anyone who plays is in regards to these items\quests that they sell.

Do I need to be a certain level to play the quests or will they pop up on my map?

Pretty much same question for the new Warframe. If I buy this guy, will I just be able to choose between the two for my missions?

I need Warframe for Dummies

MS responds to Tim...

UWP is a fully open ecosystem, available to every developer, and can be supported by any store. Broad range of tools http://bit.ly/1QIHTf0

Wish they would just slap a city based skin on Red Faction Guerrilla. That engine was great. Too bad it's not used more.

Well, I wouldn't mind the Win 10 exclusivity if they have plans to release the other installments. Otherwise, no fs given.

Even though it's an older game, I had more fun in Scourge:Outbreak than GoW. (another cover based shooter)

Me too. I enjoyed it and hope the single player component gives me a good amount of gameplay. I am 41 and have no real inclination to play multiplayer.

I really enjoyed Future Soldier so I am glad this has similar mechanics.

I also liked the beta. I might grab the game if I find a good deal.

Despite the heavy accent, his review was informative. It gave me all the info I needed to know that I will not be buying this game.

Why can't they just make tracks, with customizable time of day, weather and car density. Give me cops who throw down spike strips and the ability for me and my buddies to play a race coop or even allow a buddy (or buddies) to play as a cop(s).

The reviewer is right, this underground race culture theme is old and beaten to death.

If you want to play a 2016 racing game with no in-car view, short list of cars, always drive in the dark and wet, rubber band AI, stupid story, Monster drink product placement.... this is the game for you.

Go for you Blue! Mom died of colon cancer. She never got tested. Had she been tested at 50 or ever 60, she'd still be alive. I am 40 this year and will probably be getting tested soon.
