Waaaaay to much nickle and diming with this title. I am very disappointed and wish I hadn't bought it now.

Isn't that Warhammer's MO?

It's been Sega and Creative Assembly's M.O. for a while now with Total War in general.

They should encourage PGI instead to get better and develop an MP component (in other-words includ dedicated server software and utilize what the Unreal engine offers for that), a staple of every MW game, to MW5 and simply let the players go wild with it making their own servers, game modes, etc.

The only MW game that had player-run dedicated servers was MW4. MW2 and 3 were peer-to-peer -- MW3 was kind of the most peer-to-peer thing ever. The original MW was a singleplayer-only game.

I don't think it's really possible to play MW3 at all nowadays, since the physics were tied to the clock speed or frame rate or something. It goes haywire and sends 'Mechs flying if you try to jump, if you walk on certain hills, or any other time at all.

You know exactly what I mean regardless. Multiplayer without the gimmick of server-authoritative nonsense, purely controlled by players. And yes it is possible to get MW3 working, I have - there's fan support out there for it on the interwebs. Just lots of hoop jumping that most people don't care for.

After thinking about it, a wait and see approach may be best. Of course everyone see's "MW5" and rejoices, but PGI doesn't have any of the industry veterans on board in their company as far as I'm aware. I don't understand why they don't try to reach out to those from past titles.

Also as far as the "f2p" fans of MWO, I took a look on their forums and some aren't so pleased thinking MWO will be abandoned. Ok - so let's say MW5 turns out to be above average, not shit (that could be a long shot, I'll give PGI the benefit of the doubt, no pre-order money though, but looking at MWO even basic shit like the menu is shovel-ware tier grade) - I don't understand why the "f2p" fans would even want MWO to continue. They should encourage PGI instead to get better and develop an MP component (in other-words includ dedicated server software and utilize what the Unreal engine offers for that), a staple of every MW game, to MW5 and simply let the players go wild with it making their own servers, game modes, etc.

I see the choice for them as simple, do they want to continue pouring money into a shoddy f2p format, where they don't even own their virtual goods which are on a server somewhere that could be shut down at any time or do they want a product that could last far longer by a traditional model, returning MW back to its roots. I think of it this way - to this very day it is still possible to play MW2, 3, and 4 Mutliplayer - by way of fan support, long after the shelf-life of those games of which are not even sold anymore.

Pyro don't forget there are other 'decent' f2p titles - what makes those good is the designers and their goals. The leads of PGI has a lot to do with why MWO is shovelware-like.

Anyway s, this apparently will not have an extra attached bonus of dedicated MP like every past actual MW title. I'm assuming they want to funnel people into the sadder f2p one, "want MP like the golden age with highly customizable multiplayer servers? Too bad, pony up and get ready for grinding in MWO."

I redub this game Talos I.

Talos I looks interesting.

But, will there ever be a return of Domasi "Tommy" Tawodi for actual Prey 2 in the future? I want to play that, one of the few games ever with Cherokee mythology in it (with weird stuff sprinkled on top).

So wait, the teammates were AI. The previous gameplay video I watched had human teammates in co-op. Is this campaign playable co-op, or was the co-op a separate game mode (which I can't stand)? This game looks interesting, but only if I can play it with my friends.

The video title says "Solo Campaign Gameplay", but I don't know if that means, "playing the campaign solo", or specifically "solo campaign mode".

The description for the game states it is Single and Multi Coop. AI takes the place of human players if you don't have anyone or don't want to play with anybody.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, I was expecting a MechWarrior running the Unreal 5 6 or whatever the latest engine is... Not expecting that :/


How did you think this was a MechWarrior title? I mean BattleTech is pretty much a hint for 'TableTop-Like.'

Which 'fake news' Cliffer? He rails against "fake news" and doesn't elaborate. Are they all fake Cliffski? As far as I'm concerned The Intercept already slammed Washington Post's 'fake news' bullshit. Fuck Off With McCarthyism Bullshit.

WP and PropOrNot decided to lump in all of some the best independent research and analysis websites there are including: consortiumnews.com, counterpunch.org, davidswanson.org, globalresearch.ca, blackagendareport.com, truthdig.com, washingtonsblog.com, journal-neo.org,

The problem I have with this is people see bullshit that's posted on WP and hardly care to analyze every single website the mysterious "prop or not" assholes decided to also lump in every anti-establishment, peace advocacy, and every anti-war website there is imaginable, even those that are considered "leftist." Yeah sorry, they don't work for Russia.

I love this post-election bullshit that Cliffski is lumping in with his crocodile tears on journalism. Blame everyone. Remember when Washington Post and other "Major News" outlets, in their utter disgrace, posted fake news tricking Americans into thinking Saddam had to go (WMDs) and was in an alliance with (al-Qaeda - False)? This guy remembers. And now, as Greenwald excellently pointed out, "Tens of thousands of people, perhaps hundreds of thousands or even millions, consumed it, believing that it was true because of how many journalists and experts told them it was. Virtually none of the people who told them this spent a minute of time or ounce of energy determining if it was true."

Ah, Britain. People forget their tendency to 1984 the fuck out of their people. They've had cameras pretty much everywhere public or semi-public for decades. I'm sure the pro-Bexit voters were too ignorant or "well I'm not the one they are looking for"-ish to care.


With the election of Trump, and the people he's nominating for security positions, we'll soon be in the same boat.

We already were in a similar position with the last administration. But I'm sure now that people don't have their chosen elect in office, all will be ignored so blame can be focused on a new elect. And the 'fans' of the new elect will totally ignore crimes, just like 'fans' of the last elect ignored the last admin's crimes, because as long as people have 'their guy' in office nothing changes on these fundamentals. All Presidents have been beholden to it and have not challenged the National Security Act since 1947.

I haven't played it enough to decide if 'p2w' as you say. However, I can say the aesthetic and artwork are phenomenal as always. Its got all the sounds of the characters too, which is cool. Plus they added slight twists on the game compared to how it is in-game. For example, I like that poor fucking infantry now work like Scoia'tael and Monster cards do by spawning exact copies of it. You can also add strength or remove strength with Ballistis, making the cards more interactive. I could probably see myself playing this waaay more than Hearthstone.

From what I read there will also be some sort of 'story quest' mode where you play against AI - which could be worth to me if its a good value. I stated on their forum feedback that I would gladly pay up for some singleplayer thing as long as the content is worth it; but I'm just one person and I didn't read if others expressed the same. You can also play against AI as is in practice mode to your heart's content and never play against a player, but I don't mind playing against real people since that's what I've always wanted to do with Gwent.

First remove modding. Then remove dedicated server software. Remove all player agency that lets a game have a shelf life long after its original release. And then eventually when the game is too costly to run match maker servers, shut the servers down to make room for the next sequels.
