Have you played Axiom Verge?

I finally picked this up last sale... Played an hour or so... Thoroughly disappointed...

Loved Dead Cells though... And Seraph felt great too...

As much as I don't want to keep installing different publisher's launchers... Can't blame them for wanting that sweet sweet 30% back, for a pretty trivial application. Hell, I built an auto updater ~15 years ago for a project I sent Blizzard, which could have been flushed out into a marketplace (If I'd known, and/or had business sense to get into game sales ; ).

Looks like a fun Castlevania style game to me... Not sure what ya'll's definition of retro is, but this doesn't fit mine... Some of those scenes are beautiful.

Sooo... ya... Got home and watched the vid again, and nevermind... That's pretty 'retro' pixel art...

All I need to know is if I can pay $15 in February and try Anthem out for a month... And then consider paying for another month or three, or buying it (at a 10% discount)...

Their FAQ claims cancellation is easy, and canceling early doesn't fuck over your date (Some subs have done this), so I don't see any reason why this wouldn't work.

It isn't about a D&D Beholder? I am disappoint.

This is what I think of every time I see it too... Eye of the Beholder games were great 'back in the day'... I really should have put more time into Grimrock...

I really need to go back and start this over... Got it at launch, and got distracted by some other stuff... Thoroughly enjoyed the first, so should enjoy most of this one.

I guess the subscriber numbers have finally fallen low enough that Blizzard feels the need to go this route?

I don't know if it was always this way, but it's been like this for a very long time now. I remember trying WOW a few years ago and getting every expansion except for the latest one with a sub.
The change is the removal of the requirement to buy the base game. But yeah, for the last couple of expansions if you bought the new expansion you got all the previous ones "free".

And it's even less of a change, since the base game included a month... So $20 (the rare time it wasn't on sale) vs the $15 for that month now.

Any current WoW player here that can answet this question?

How is rerolling these days? Will it be lonely questing in empty areas and is all the player base endgame? Or is a fresh start very doable?

With Cross Realm Zones, there are more visible players out in the world... And there are always people leveling, so LFD is active.

They recently made some changes to pre-WoD leveling where all content scales... Some of it's good (not being forced out of a zone), some of it's bad (Mobs aren't as ridiculously easy, and some level ranges feel slow, and you're going 110 levels these days, so even if it were fast per level, so many levels makes the entirety feel sluggish).

Trailer isn't doing enough for me... But I enjoyed the show... Like any fresh game (re-release or not), I'll give it a month or three for some shit to be ironed out, and then maybe try it... Though I'll likely still be obsessed with WoW at the time..

Was looking forward to this until i heard it sucks...oh well

As a big Souls fan, I kept hearing about Monster Hunter games (And Dragon's Dogma, so I've learned to not listen to these people), so when this was announced, I looked into it...

I wouldn't say it sucks, because nothing that sells millions of copies sucks, but it doesn't look very fun...

The highlights of monsters and fights look interesting, but there appears to be a lot of 'prep grind' to get ready to hunt... Which is a pretty big turn off for me. So ya, it seems a very small portion of the game looks awesome, so maybe at some discounted price, and while I'm bored, I'll re-consider.

@Jagacademy

this anet employee has been a prominent and contentious personality for many years. she has been stalked and harassed and targeted by the craziest of the crazies. finally one of their brigades succeeded in getting her fired. it's nothing but a routine internet witch hunt by low-class losers.

@Cutter

you don't need to get the last word in every time. you told your joke, she said it was stupid, you both had your say. you don't need to come back with a tirade to defend yourself. she's allowed to not like your joke.

Yes, and like her you're permitted - unfortunately - to be a whiny little bitch as well. And like her, snowflakes like you need to learn to lighten the fuck up. I - and everyone else with a lick of common sense and who isn't a whiny little bitch - refuse to walk around on eggshells so as not to offend your over delicate little feelings.

But if you weren't a precious little snowflake, you wouldn't get all whiny when someone calls you out on your constant stream of bull : )

It's quite normal for people to complain the loudest, and use the targeted language of, the things they hate about themselves...

Given all that, here's an Internet <hug>, because we all can tell that you need it ; )

she deserved the sack just for the Total biscuit tweet
https://twitter.com/Delafina777/status/1000045432007938048


defending people like that is just fucked up



I feel the same about people that loved TotalBiscuit... Only ever watched one of his vids, and he was a total asshole to, and about, the people he was playing with... The tweet you linked was much tamer, though still stupid.

On Topic... I'm really surprised so many of the adults in here (Not surprised about the 40-50+ years olds that never grew up), don't understand that when you're a public representative of a company, everything you say, especially publicly, and in a way DIRECTLY connected to said company, is taken as representing that company...

What other choice does ArenaNet have here? Lose customers that have lost respect for this representative, and therefore, the company? Even EA wouldn't have kept her around after spewing that much garbage ; )

If you think a game like this is "good" than you're easily amused. It's scheisse. All you do is drive around destroying the same/similar bases over and over again. That's it. I can't stand grindy games like this, Just Cause, etc. Yeah, you can do it in all kinds of ways but it still amounts to a virtual hamster wheel in the end.

Don't you have hundreds of hours in Civ?

Funny a game where you mindlessly kill zombie after zombie is inspired by games where your actions matter. Give me a break.

Interesting. So you've played DL2 already and it's not even out. Give us a detailed review.

What is not to know, you kill zombies over and over again.

And Witcher 3 is just a game where you mindlessly kill monster after monster with the occasional yapping and fucking... Give me a break.
