As an explorer in Null Sec, I can make enough ISK to buy a Plex in about 5 days. Not a grind at all.

That's pretty much the definition of a grind.

Erm. Why would you think that those are the 'only' ways you can do this? Have you played any of the 'original' games? You know, the one where the Aliens actually took TURNS and moved around on the map BEFORE you encountered them?

Because I remember the effect that could have. Spending an insane amount of time hunting down that last one or two aliens that stuck themselves between 2 crates and just sat there or moved back and forth in an out of the way place on the map. And with the maps now moving to procedural, that's an even more likely scenario.

Damn this looks fun. They're not only creating a sequel, but adding tons of new game play options. My wallet is cringing at all the gaming goodness coming out of this E3.

Lock it in a vault. That might might work for a short while...

Really, REALLY want to see a change to Engagement. The absolute worst part of EU was spending time to cleverly and quietly move a squad forward only to have spotted enemies get free movement to cover before combat. Let me get fucking sneak attacks and/or stealth kills.

Seems like this is what they are going for. But you will be 'surprised' by reinforcements in any case so it likely won't be an all stealth affair.

It looks really good, but it also looks like there will be some really cheap/cheesy deaths. Ranged tongue attack to insta-kill from the snake alien? Even more random enemy reinforcements than the first game, and they get first shot?

I'll still get it of course, just saying, there will be some raging.

People need to realize that difficulty levels exist for a reason. I finished EW on classic/ironman. No one forces you to play on higher levels than you need to.

Also, they confirmed in the interview that the enemies don't get first shot when they come as reinforcements.

On the upside - at least for now - I asked for a refund on the Witcher Adventure game yesterday and it was refunded today no questions asked. How gracious they'll be in the long run is YTBD.

What's wrong with the Witcher Adventure game? Never played it myself.

What's embarrassing about it if I just don't care?

The things I do care about - those things were fulfilled. The trivial graphics stuff? Whatever. I am just not going to notice it. My days of caring about graphics ended when I got my first prescription lenses.

Different priorities, man. Different priorities.

I've been wearing prescription lenses since I was 7 (I'm now 39). What in the hell does that have to do with caring about graphics? Unless you're legally blind, what would stop you from appreciating good graphics?

Does anyone actually know the console-to-PC ratio for SKyrim sales.

I run a gajillion mods on Skyrim, but I can't honestly say that I never would have bought it if mods weren't available.

People sometimes overestimate the impact modding has on a game. I know quite a few people who don't use mods in Skyrim period. Not even SkyUI.

And no, DOTA 2 is not shallow. Items, Lanes, Minions and Upgrade path are VITAL in that game. This adds TONS of constant micro management to the game. Which is the kind of thing I really don't like

There is very little micromanagement in Dota unless you play a micro 'heavy' hero like Chen or Meepo. Most of the time you control one unit. You glance at your minimap and look at the screen, make decisions based on the action like pretty much any other game. Items are hotkeys, you memorize them within a few games or make your own. Your upgrade path is not a complex formula, you pick skills that you're comfortable with or ones that will help you win vs what you're facing.

Play whatever you find fun, I don't really care I just found your comment funny.

I think his point is that not a lot of people play Dota 2 this way because the general expectation is that you will use its inherent complexity past just doing what you want. Dota 2 players can be pretty brutal when it comes to playing your hero 'properly'.

HotS takes away the item fudging and perfect skill point placement at the right time and just makes a straight forward MOBA with fun at the core. Some people won't like it but Blizzard has always been about appeal to the broadest base of players. That usually means making people feel like they are doing something even if they thnk they are doing more than they are. Nothing wrong with that. I enjoy HotS a lot. And I don't much like MOBAs myself.

It's just such an amazing game. Even for all its minor imperfections it's arguably the best CRPG ever made in both scope and quality.

Who are you and what have you done with Cutter? Shocked

im sure everyone is so sad to hear this, we all hope you can find what you are looking for

please keep us in the loop, we really want to know how it all works out for you

I was being nice.

It looks like that red steel game on Wii. (Which looked like shit)

Must be a real burden to be in the minority. If only more people shared your opinion...

I guess I'm the only one who sees no value in remaking MOO, when you can still -get- the original game, and it still plays just fine. Higher resolution graphics will add no value. Making it online would add no value (for my taste). I can think of nothing they could do to make it enough better that I'm going to buy it yet again.

Put out the effort to do something creative guys, and stop trying to piggyback on the fame of older works.

I really cannot agree more.
