This looks completely utterly unoriginal.

I don't see them doing this ever again. They're just doing it this time because some people got in early, and they want everyone to start at the same time.

Then why are they wiping the servers on Sunday and releasing the game on Thursday?

When bad news happens, people immediately open up shorts and dump, this is no different than the stock market, or commodities, or any number of investments. 50% retraces happen rather quickly however. *Edit: Yesterday it dropped to 485, now it's back up to nearly 600* It'll eventually blow over and will resume it's climb.

I have absolutely no idea why people are pre-purchasing No Man's Sky, wait for reviews! So many extremely hyped games recently have been panned, it just isn't worth the gamble. And the preorder bonus, I wouldn't even want it. I want to work my way up to a ship with better guns, not buy one.

C'mon people.

Does this have "Push button to stick to wall" gameplay?

That ruined the prior one for me, feels so unrealistic. I have no problem ducking behind cover, but I want to manually control it (ducking/leaning), not have a toggle on/off button.

Never played it, was going to buy it today but noticed they are doing a character wipe on the 21st. Will buy it then.

I had a character named "Blood for the Blood God" in Elder Scrolls Online, and Bethesda made me change it.

Morons.

Dude, I've been waiting for Prey 2 for almost a decade.

Your enthusiasm for Prey convinced me to play through it, but then I see that it's not even on Steam?

also, it's really jarring to see average animations again after being treated to blizzard's overwatch where everything is smoothly blended

Yeah, it's so disappointing when an indie developer with a couple employees can't animate as well as multi-billion dollar studios with 100's of employees.

Chivalry : Medieval Warfare was brilliant, but Deadliest Warrior was a garbage cash grab.

Hopefully this one is more of the former and less of the latter.

I would play this if the engine wasn't so "clunky". It doesn't have a smooth feel whatsoever like other MMOs.

Warcraft seems to be bombing with US critics whereas it's doing fairly well abroad at least as far as video game adaptations go. I don't trust fan reviews for this one though, there are simply far too many people who either love Blizzard because they can do no wrong or have an axe to grind with them so it turns in to a giant dick measuring content of 10/10 and 0/10 reviews based on everything except the film itself.

Definitely had some growing pains thanks to the marketing team though who didn't seem to know what they were trying to advertise in many of the trailers.

As always the law of averages takes over after a certain number of critics/users have done their thing. The 0s and the 10s cancel each other out.

Uhh...no they don't. They leave a 5, aka shit, rating.

The movie Troy had a fantastic Director's Cut.

I'd play this game if it had a more realistic PvP cap, it needs a more level playing field. Too many videos online of people winning 1 vs 12's just because they play 20 hours a day and their characters are exponentially more powerful than everyone elses. Game desperately needs a character skill level cap, so that time played > player skill.

They need to replace free weekends with free weeks. Friday to Friday or something of that nature. Not all of us are free on weekends, but that's the only time they ever host these.

Why are they even adding pre-orders as their own spot anyways?

So ...because you played it and found it boring ya just don't understand the demand from others Clown

Uhh...yes, exactly. Why the demand? 2 months, maybe, and you've done everything there is to do.

Wow, thank you for the thoughtful response, it is greatly appreciated.

Okay, I won't pass it up then, but won't stop what I'm doing to play it. In the next couple months if I'm between games I'll give it a download and check it out.

Is this worth trying out? New expansions are always a great time to jump in, because at that point you aren't way behind everyone who has been playing for years, especially if you're playing a brand new class.

The game has had northwards of 125+ patches (and counting) in the last 12 years, still trying to fix problems with the initial release...

"Bro, this game was perfectly fine since day one!"

*facepalm*
