I am just hoping for substantial changes. 3-4 didn't seem to really change or add that much.

Interesting... I will have to check this out. Renegade had many issues, but it was still a fun game. This appears to have addressed at least of few of those issues.

They packed in quite a few changes for a patch. I am interested to try it out whenever they finally get it working.

I'd be partial to a port of the recent upgraded version of Tactics.

What now? The most recent Tactics I know of were A2 for the DS and that iOS remake of the original. Did they make something for the Vita or PS3?

Sad to see, but no real surprise here. WCG had been on the way out for a while.

Seems odd for PC users, but I guess this is more for Steam box users?

Will be interesting to see where they go with this.

People still not tired of this franchise? Guess if CoD can do it so can Gears.

I didn't buy any of the most recent titles, but the old ones actually had decent co-op. That alone made them worth the price for me. It is quite rare for anyone to do co-op, much less do it well anymore.

This is a ways off but they could strike with another console in the middle of this coming generation and hit gold I think.

Eh, I don't know about that... Has pulling a Sega ever really worked out?

"Speed Racer?"


3rd Matrix movie...

At least Cloud Atlas was cool...

I, uh, conveniently pretend the last Matrix movie doesn't exist. Also, I like Speed Racer, so that's not a downer for me.

My opinion has mellowed with time, I don't think it is that bad anymore. That said, it was absolutely disappointing.

I assume that the Microsoft store offers physical copies only, no downloads?

I guess so as it talks about free shipping. Still not a bad deal on ME3 or Heart of the Swarm for those that haven't picked either up yet.

What is wrong with British people? Why isn't Call of Duty or BF4 the top selling software title there? No wonder you guys lost your empire!


Sorry that they made 2 and 4 out of all platforms and prices..? Did you read the list?

This whole "networks upload for free" thing I've seen mentioned twice now in this thread...

What networks are you guys talking about? The vast majority require you to log in with your cable subscription account.

I know, for example, CBS has most of its shows the next day. Fox isn't as quick, but they have shows as well. I mean what programs are you looking for?

Did they ever really add anything to Hulu plus? I got it when it first came out because I am a fan of Netflix and figured it might have a few things I couldn't get there... nope. It basically just had what networks upload for free on their own website along with a few random out of order old episodes...

I am curious about AoE II HD with the extra content 'expansion'. Unfortunately there seems to be very little talk about it on the net (that I could find anyway)...

What do you want to know? Did you lpay it way back when? It was awesome then, and it is awesome now. Aoe2 is my favorite out of all of them over the years. One that I go back to over and over.

At that price, it is worth it just for the nostalgia in my opinion. If you don't have 3, then get the big pack, aoe2+expansion +Aoe3. Not a bad amount of gaming.

I still have my copies of 2 and 3 (though I wouldn't mind having it on Steam so I could free myself of the discs). I was wondering mostly about the DLC and how much it really adds.

In those photos the new Mac Pro looks much better than I thought it would. Sort of a very metallic finish. What I had seen previously made it look like a boring almost plastic looking black.

Still looks like a trash bin though... just a very fancy trash bin. No idea how they went from the awesome looking previous Mac Pro cases to that.

The part of the beta I played was fun, until you get to the grind. After that, I lost interest.

Same here. I enjoyed my first few hours with it, but then lost interest. I'd do the bot games more if there was a reason to. They don't count towards dailies, and getting gold from them is just a grind.

Same here. That said, it did strike me as a thing I could come back to again and again over time. Just not a game I could play regularly for any length of time. Though I liked the AI matches fine. I just had fun playing the game.

Pity it ends up feeling so grindy after a bit.

built upon a character 'customization' that is full-on laughably restricted... unlike PoE.
MattyC wrote on Dec 19, 2013, 23:14:
Do you mean unrestricted? You can play around with all kinds of builds and get the one that works for you. It is PoE that locks you in and forces you to relevel another character to try something different. I don't mean that to dump on PoE, I just don't see any reason for every ARPG to lock you in, variety is good.
When you can respec your character on the fly like you can in Diablo III, the only thing that differentiates you from anyone else playing your class is your gear. That just isn't enough for me.


In both you can customize. To each their own though.

To me, the only difference is in PoE when you want to customize you have to do some busy work first. Otherwise it is the same, I mean anyone can level up a character.

Seems like a personal preference kind of thing.
