So, WW2 AGAIN. That's too bad.

There was only Battlefield 1942, and that came out 16 years ago. And then if you want to, you could count 1943 for consoles. And if they actually made their game engine more moddable we would have had Forgotten Hope 3 and 4 by now, but we haven't so...

At least for me, Battlefield 1945 is definitely what I've been waiting for. I fear though it will be bloated with progression-ware that has been the new traditional design model for these games rather than just being a 'ww2-sandbox' like the original.

Would be awesome if it were Vietnam in all of its futile, gory, morally ambiguous glory.

Futile and Gory sure, the futile attempt capturing that certain flag. Morally ambiguous? Doubtful, not from EA/Dice. Nothing really morally ambiguous or any representation of the illegality of specific conflicts with any Battlefield game, its all about those kill streaks man. For an MP FPS you could check out Rising Storm 2. The closest to 'walking through a jungle for real world half hour only to walk into a punji trap or get ambushed by AI' Vietnam SP FPS is Vietcong, which has not made it to a digital re-release.

The main news out of E3 I'm looking forward to is Cyberpunk anyways. And hopefully Nintendo does a Direct and shows Metroid Prime 4 or a new side-scroller like Zero Mission, Super Metroid, Fusion, or Returns.

At best, I think its meant to be a kid show folks. I don't mind it, but it seems to me while watching it that it is aimed at a younger audience.

The Expanse is for the thinking adults (and still ongoing as are the books).

Bethesda logo, not id, correct (I may have missed it.)

Supports my theory that id isn't going near this and it's being farmed off to a lesser dev. Which isn't necessarily bad, few people loved Rage so a new team may be able to bring in new ideas and take different risks.

Id did too well with Doom, I think, to revisit this. Maybe had Doom not done well, but Doom was kind of explosive. Hard to imagine them stepping back to a dead end after that. But what do I know, devs and publishers do weird things.

But the Doom 4 trailers had Bethesda on them. Its how they market as a publisher.

My guess is that new-iD is making this since they made Doom 4. What else would they be working on? Doom 5? I'd think they would want to do something else besides Doom.

Beth publisher umbrella:
Machine Games - Works on Wolfenstein only at this point and Quake
iD Software - Doom 4
Arcane Studios - Dishonored and Prey

If I'm wrong, I guess we'll know soon.

Yes I prefer the WW2 settings, and wasn't sure how well I would like RS2. It has really grown on me though. I'm hoping RO3 will explore the WW2 settings they haven't covered yet. I still play RO2/RS1 on occasion. If they just move RO2/RS1 to the RS2 engine and add a few maps that would be gold.

Yeah that would be nice. This new engine they have with 64 players and flyable vehicles is almost moving the series towards large scale stuff like Battlefield games, except with more realism.

Hmm, what would RO3 be though? I haven't tried this, looks fun though.

I wish they would concentrate on expanding the WW2 ones. There is so much more they can do in that setting, but so far its extremely limited to 'Stalingrad' but barely covers the entirety of the Eastern Front conflict or tech uses (the limited tanks). Rising Storm was great, but again seemed to only cover a limited aspect of the Pacific Theater. There are just way more theaters they can do, the Winter War would be an interesting one, for example.

I know they are a small studio though so that may be a tall order... it's just that they keep jumping Eras, so I would hope they expand this Vietnam way further than 8 maps. That conflict was huge, with many lesser known battles, plus they could add early conflict stuff such as the French loss at Dien Bien Phu, and when China attempted to invade after the U.S. left.

Maybe it'll be better this time around? The DOOM 4 was decent from iD, and that game Prey Beth published from Arkane did well, and also the new Wolfensteins they published made by Machine Games. Basically what I'm saying is, most of the FPS games published in recent years under the Beth umbrella have been pretty well received.

I have to wait for my boxed edition, bummer. Oh well, I'm playing and making mods for BattleTech right now anyways.

do you? i ordered a boxed edition and have had access to the keys through the backer portal for several weeks.

I'll check again, but I didn't see it or was looking in the wrong area. All I saw was my receipt for the backer box, which said it included a separate downloadable version.

EDIT: Duur, I'm dumb. I found it. "My Product" section of my profile on Obsidian's site.

I mean the person did a dumb thing, but it seems there was enough humans there to rush that bear instead of just standing there screaming and filming it. Only one person threw a rock and that was it.

FYI, this BattleTech game plays more like Front Mission than anything else, except with more free roam for mission contracts. The "hub" part of the game is a combination of Star Craft 2 and the "new" X-Com.

And like Burrito, said I can confirm that you DO NOT need to login. I went straight into Single Player without having to login. I did try to afterwards though, since I have a paradox account, and it logged in right away. There were server issues apparently right at launch earlier today, which I did not get to experience.

Overall, I'm finding it pretty awesome, although I did play the Beta so I already knew I would like the combat turn-based part. The story so far is intriguing with enough mystery to find out what's going on - the writing seems fine to me (I'm not getting YA vibes, it's about on par with some of the better BattleTech books like Betrayal of Ideals), the voice acting that goes with it is also stellar. Music is amazing. Easy to use interface. No crashes and the gameplay is smooth, action camera is completely customizable. There ARE optimization issues, the game slows down for me quite a bit when zooming in on heavily destroyed buildings. Also if you have ultra wide screen, the UI is not optimized for that yet (I don't have ultra wide so this isn't an issue for me but it will be for those that do have it).

I think HBS has an extremely solid base to improve on what they've made here.
