This should be a great game upon release, the alpha builds have been progressing along nicely.

Zaccaria Pinball is also quite decent. Although still in early access is showing alot of promise already and is free to play on Steam.

Sad to see a mediocre game (The Division) that is NOTHING like what was demo'd at E3 smashing sales records. It is all flash and no substance.

Generally agree, but was that demo any different really, apart form the gfx downgrade? It always looked to me like an average cover based MMOTPS.

The gameplay demo'd in E3 was a lot better than anything in the game right now and not just the graphics. They also prevented reviews of the game from coming out before the game was released. Apologists during the beta said that "don't worry all the cool stuff we were promised will be here for release". It wasn't. It felt to me, having pre-ordered it, like a bait-and-switch. Angry Joe's review of the game on Youtube was spot on for me and I don't always agree with him.

I re-watched the E3 videos again (E3 '13, '14 & '15) and to be honest, it is not that different to what we ended up getting. In terms of graphics, when compared to ultra on PC it may be slightly downgraded.

Gameplay terms, it is pretty much showing what we got. 3rd person check. Cover based check. Bullet spongey enemies check.

The radio banter in the demos was obviously different but everyone knew that was staged for demonstration purposes by voice actors.

What was so radically different in the E3 demos ?

Valve announces HL3, HL2: Source 2 upgrade & LFD3...wouldn't that be a nice trifecta

...and then they make them all VR exclusive. That would be one way to kickstart the VR revolution

Hmmm...and for those who already purchased a season pass at the old price......?

There's no difference in content between the season passes. Grats to those who get it at a lower price

This means you could sit down, eat and continue interacting with others without needing to remove it.

Jesus. VR is such a joke.

BTTF called it for 2015...

Bethesda are doing the triple whammy at this E3. Doom, Fallout 4 & Dishonored 2

They definitely have something serious planned. It's their first time hosting E3 and they have the entire first day (night) to themselves. Doom 4 is a certainty, Dishonored 2 is widely-rumored (leak), but Fallout 4 is an unknown. They are being extremely tight-lipped about it but the two main complications are one, the engine, which if the game is announced here will likely be a Skyrim (Creation Engine) rehash rather a new one and two, the paid mods fiasco might have altered their announcement plans for it.

I would argue they are all pretty much a certainty if previous leaked reports and hiring schedules are anything to go by.

The Bethesda Blog has a teaser trailer announcing plans for a full DOOM reveal next month at E3 2016.

I must have been in stasis for 12 months

News Comments > Watch Dogs Requires Uplay
32. Re: Watch Dogs Requires Uplay Apr 8, 2014, 17:19 Freddie
 
I dont see the big issue. I bought FC3 on steam and all Uplay did for FC3 in that instance was provide the achievements, Steam did all the downloading & updating.

This time around I have pre-ordered watch_dogs from Green Man Gaming (who only sell Uplay keys). It just means I need to have Uplay running to get the automatic updates which is a bit of a pain but it was worth the $20 which I saved from buying it on Steam.

Always preferred Railworks/Train Sim myself...I guess its because I have always chose Kuju's stuff (from the early days of MSTS) over Auran's

Good to see train sims getting a bit of love though.

Agreed. Gta IV took like 18 months to come to the PC. After that I dont think they ported a single thing to the PC (Apart from Max Payne). RDR never came to the PC and its probably their best game yet. GTAV for the PC? Doubt it.

Wrong, GTA4 came out on PC 8mths after the consoles

I never played SWG, but as a Star Wars fan (of the original series), I somehow now feel like I missed out on a significant piece of Star Wars gaming history.

Or not.

Pre-NGE / CU it was great, but it was just a train wreck thereafter.

Note the line "how it would operate alongside BioWare's upcoming Star Wars The Old Republic MMORPG". That tells me it will hit before SWG shuts down.

You completely ignored the last part of the sentence : "which is to say that it won't."

SWG and TOR will not co-exist, so TOR will release on the day SWG closes or sometime after

Sad to see. Sad that a quite unique MMO was chopped and changed to be more like WoW and lost all of its original charm (Pre-CU / Pre-NGE). SWG was the 1st MMO I played, so it will always hold a nostalgic place in my heart, alot of my EQ playing friends praised the skill based system at the time but then it just turned into a cheap level based wow spinoff

Hopefully the Emu scene will keep this one alive after Sony axe it (back the way it used to be)
