No Steam. No buy.

these fools should just scrounge up the $10 to get Bad Company 2 on Steam and put that sorry excuse for a BF game to rest. *Especially* those who are funneling money into *renting* the game, just go buy a real Battlefield game. Theyre cheap, and still tons of players.

Intrusive? Possibly. Inconvenient? How so? You get all your games in one place
downloading and installing can be completed with a couple of clicksAnd we did that without the need to downloading anything.
your installed games are automatically updated.You say that as if it's a good thing...
You can also play your games in offline mode.When it chooses to work, and the game allows it.
In addition, if you use multiple OSes, you don't have to reinstall your games as long as you use the same Steam installation directory.I don't. I'm sure most don't. So... yeah.
For me, the only inconvenient part of Steam is the inability to choose where I install my games and the one-time online activations.For me it's that I have to use it at all.

Don't know about the rest of you, but I enjoyed it. Yes, it was nostalgic, it was old school, and it was adolescent. Probably why I was smiling the whole way through.

As long as one considers the ME games as action adventures, they're awesome.
Sure there are some RPG elements that modify the way you play the adventure, but in the end it's action-adventure. Not hard core RPG, not tactical RPG (Dragon Age Origins), not FPS.
To me ME games are like Unchartered without wall climbing and with RPG elements.

this is not horse armor... at least its something you can actually use...
Theo wrote on Dec 1, 2011, 05:09:All that stops is updates for games you aren't playing. If you play them, they will update.
You dont have to have steam auto patch games, its a option on a per game basis (in the properties, under update). i tend to do this for all bethesda games i buy - cause i am totally sick of putting a fire extinguisher next to my PC every time they patch one of there games.

I swear some of the NPCs are voiced by Garrett himself, Stephen Russell.
Darks wrote on Nov 17, 2011, 02:17:You realise that the hotkeys don't actually work if you want to dual wield, right?
You guys realize that you can hot key weapons and spells in this game with the key pad and the number keys right?
Cutter wrote on Nov 12, 2011, 00:12:Well? It's just an angry rant about things that have changed, without a seconds thought as to why.
As someone on the Bethsoft forums put it quite well....
Three stats?Yay, counting!
No classes?SV covered this well. There's at least as much room for specialisation, the difference is you build your class naturally as you go, rather than picking from a list. More realistic and conducive to actual role playing, in other words.
No major and minor skills?By far the most broken part of previous ES games. Thank fuck they're gone.
No birth signs?I think the guardian stones are meant to do the same job. Not a great loss either way.
No weapon deterioration?It was utterly pointless. Bashing your gear with a hammer after every battle is not something anyone is going to miss.
No crossbows, spears, throwing weapons?An entirely aesthetic difference, and not one that impacts the game in any real way. It's also not Skyrim's fault, as they were dropped before Oblivion.
No spell making?That's a bit shit, to be fair.
No potion naming?...
Where did the medium armour skill go?Nobody used it, so they got rid of it.
Where did the unarmed skill go? Where did the unarmoured skill go?Also gone long before Skyrim.
What about acrobatics? What about athletics?Pointless and broken skills. They leveled whether you wanted them to or not. If you wanted to play a big slow brute, it meant you could never touch your run or jump keys, because every time you did you'd be getting faster and more agile. They were awful, and they're removal is undeniably a good thing.
What about mysticism?The spells are still there. They've been moved to other schools.
Why do I feel tired and uncompelled to search through any of these crates, barrels and bags? Maybe it's the 10 gold and potatoes that I know I'm going to find.Because you've decided - for whatever reason - to not enjoy playing what is obviously a very enjoyable game. Your loss.
Rattlehead wrote on Nov 3, 2011, 21:52:Not any that fixed more than they broke, no.
Hahaha. Good joke EA. We know you don't support shit after it's been released
Nah the battlefield games have never recieved any patches...right?

how long do you think it will take before those pixellated censor boxes get modded out of the pc version?
Acleacius wrote on Oct 31, 2011, 23:38:It wasn't in the video, but there's a few pictures knocking around the net. It's not 2D anymore. The game zooms out to a 3D overview with mountains and clouds and junk. I don't know how useable it is, but it looks pretty.
If anyone has it, do we ever get to see the map? Hoping it's not the horrid version we had in Oblivion. Where we were repeatedly forced to drag the map.

Is it me, or were there no separate cuirasses and greaves in that video?
They did away with this. I believe it was because it drove them nuts to see people in glass cuirasses and steel greaves or something, though that made perfect sense on bandits.
