There is a big part of me that really dislikes this early access phenomenon.

Games come out as EA, are bug ridden, incomplete, lack basic functions every game should have. By the time the game is complete it's years later, old news, the novelty wore off, and nobody cares anymore. You can point to a few exceptions, but the majority of the time these EA games are ghost towns by the time they hit version 1.0.

The game will eventually be on steam. If things end up like Chivalry 1, the game will be $9 after 6 months.

I'm also looking forward to this one, but I have no issues buying it on the cheap later. I put over 300 hours into the first one and I paid under $10... will probably do the same with this one.

I can certainly understand and appreciate that opinion.

I just take it a little bit further myself. In my opinion, if a company wants to boycott me as a PC gaming consumer, then I'm going to boycott them as well.

Chivalry was one of my top 3 favorite games released in the last decade, was really looking forward to playing the sequel.

I refuse to support anti-consumer PC exclusives though so looks like I'm going to miss this one.

Screw Torn Banner Studios, hope you all choke on your bribe.

I think it's just an exercise in determining the minimum amount of effort required to make a product that millions of people will pay a dollar for.

I love how PC games are released nowadays without even having basic features such as being able to rebind keys.

The problem with these games is that they're always reviewed on a "first impressions" basis.

100 hours later everyone finds out the story completely sucked and ruined the game.

I don't normally buy games that are early into their Early Access, but Baldur's Gate 3 is going to be tough to wait on. I've read every Forgotten Realms novel, still have 200 or so of them in my library, love the setting.

I want to be immersed in a game like this however. I feel like it's going to be consistently broken if it's full of text/dialogue errors and bugs though, so it's a tough decision.

I don't understand the concept of "teasing" the most obvious game ever being made. A new CoD a year after the previous one? No way!!!!!

Every single review I see mentions nostalgia, half the time followed by people rambling on about their PS2 days.

Is that all this is then? Anything about the game that would appeal to someone who never played the original?

Apparently studies show that people who work from home work more hours on average.
I've seen similiar studies as well. Like the average company saving 30% on overhead per work-at-home employee while simultaneously seeing increased efficiency.

If I worked with this Mark Darrah guy I'd sock him in the mouth if his ill-informed comments got me pulled back into a soul crushing cubicle.

Inquisitor, Mechanicus, and Death Wing are all great games! Vermintide is pretty good too. I haven't read any of the 40k novels because I'd have no idea where to start. Do they have omnibus' of those things?
I have thought about playing Inquisitor several times, perhaps I'll give it a shot. I just finished everything I wanted to do in Fallout 76, now I bounce back and forwardth between WoW Classic and CoD: Modern Warfare.

Yes, there are many omnibus sets. "Where do you start?" is a question even hardcore 40k aficionados have a hard time answering, it is easy to argue that the mythos is the deepest and widest reaching out of any setting ever created. I just randomly started reading them after finishing nearly every other Fantasy/Sci Fi novel on the racks at B&N, and had no idea what was even going for quite some time. Eventually it just started to click.

There are a lot of guides and opinions online, but the "Eisenhorn Trilogy" is often quoted as a good starting point. Or, even though it is set 10,000 years earlier in circa 30k AD, the 1st book of the Horus Heresy is a good place to begin as well, it's called "Horus Rising".

Ultimately what makes 40k so great in my opinion is there are countless novels in which the "bad guys" are the main protagonists, so it's a nice change of pace.

There are more Warhammer video games than there are grains of sand on this planet...

I've played over 1,000 games and have read over 250 Warhammer 40k novels, but have never played a Warhammer game ironically. Seems like the majority are "meh" at best, with only a couple being good.

I avoided this game like the plague after it's disastrous launch. It never crossed my mind again until I saw a free weekend on Steam a month or two ago. Checked here, and a few players talked me into giving it a shot. (Darks/Cutter)

It's actually a halfway decent game now after the "Wastelanders" update recently, I'd give it a 79/100.

If you're simply bored or need a Fallout fix you should be able to get your money out of it.

You can tell just from the screenshots that this game suffers from massive consolitus.

I wanted to pick this up when it was first released in EA, however there were videos of people doing ridiculous things like winning battles while severely outnumbered by abusing game mechanics. (walk backwards in a certain pattern while swinging, no enemy could ever hit you)

Are things a little bit more toned now?

Yeah, to bad Tripwire has gone full EGS now though, and Chivalry will only be on EGS (for a year I assume). Sigh, was looking forward to it.

Ditto. Chivalry was one of my favorite games in the last decade, I have slightly over 1,000 hours played.

Since it's going to be an EGS exclusive, I will never play the 2nd.

Theirs an option in the game hitting he space bar will change the graphics from the old vanilla to the new 4K.

Pretty sweet seeing the difference on the fly like that.
The Secrety of Monkey Island remaster has that ability, I'd switch it back and forwardth on every screen for a moment for nostalgia, was a really cool mechanic.

Thanks for recommending Fallout 76 a couple weeks ago, pushing 100 hours played now.
