Still looks really cool and overdue, though... Guess we'll have to wait and see.

So... early access, without calling it early access... This is kinda weird. I don't like Square Enix though.

Depressing. People can't look past immediate minor issues and see the big picture. Actually makes me a little sad that's even an article. As if flaunting it at Sonic, hoping for even lower prices.

While I agree, it does look a lot better than the early gameplay they showed. Still a ways to go though... Ubisoft's gonna fuck it up like they manage to with most games, I'm sure.

Looking forward to the... 4-day long closed "beta" with staggered invites despite guaranteed beta access. Grand. Gonna try it at least.

NOW GET THESE FUCKING COUPONS OUT OF MY STEAM INVENTORY

Yessssss. Gave this shitty game to everyone I know that didn't have it, and I still have like 7 of these shits in my inventory...

On a similar note, I got Dying Light recently after they both released a demo, and significantly improved performance from launch, and it's quite awesome. A lot better than Dead Island, but clearly based off of it. I believe Techland made, or had their hand in, Dead Island, but branched off on their own. Soon, they're coming out with a new DLC called The Following, that adds what appears to be a significant amount of content (including a new, completely different zone/terrain).

Absolutely despise these ISPs today, but...

I did contact TWC's support twitter telling them I'm about to cancel because of my high bill ($150/mo for basic cable and 15mbit down/3mbit up internet) and they lowered it by $50 for a year. From one tweet. So if anyone's dealing with a similar bill, I recommend doing that.

Albeit you have to create a twit account (which can be a throwaway! it doesn't have to be tied to your main emails or anything)

120 down/25 up; with OTA channels on a cable box + HBO/HBOGO; $60/mo. Xfinity can be surprisingly easy to haggle down. You just have to find the right person to talk to. If someone can't give you better deal, keep calling until you find someone that will.

Damn, that's pretty nice. I didn't actually get to talk to anyone for this one, though. And I believe they can't/won't change your promo deal until it's over.

I'd honestly cancel cable TV if it weren't for other people in the house. I imagine TWC would charge a similar price for just internet because they're gigantic assholes though.

Can't wait to see how little RP and money you get for these, too... And also what the status is for the online PC multiplayer regarding cheaters. :/

Although the cynic in me wants to take a couple shots at the the "regular updates" and "DLC" sections, the fanboy in me is winning the battle and all I can really say is...

GIVE ME THE DAMN GAME ALREADY.

The cynical fanboy in me is saying this will be the worst Fallout yet. So far from what I've seen, voiced protagonist and limited dialog options, it looks like Fallout 4 will be more FPS like and less of an RPG.

I have to agree. It looks less sandbox-y, less random, more linearly-aimed. I'm not excited for it... Way more excited for XCOM 2!

Ooooh, sweet. I really wanted to get into this on consoles but it had so many issues that come with Japan-developed games. Weird fonts, silly menus, black bars across the screen at all times... I hope it's improved for PC.

Playing through Ground Zeroes again tonight - forgot how beautiful this game is. Hell of an engine.

Remember, the folks you save are supposed to be on Mother Base, once you import your game save to Phantom Pain!


How will that work though?

Anyone who played Ground Zeroes should go in-game before playing and Upload Save Data. This new feature was added to the main menu just yesterday, I believe.

This Augment Your Preorder is bullshit.

It makes me wonder if Mankind divided will be a huge piece of shit and they're trying to get their money back in pre-orders before the reviews come out.

That's always possible, but it's from the same guys who made DE:HR, and they built up a massive amount of goodwill with that game. They'd be stupid to squander it with a shit sequel buried in pre-order BS (and that's of course the publisher's decision, not theirs.)


Then again... Square Enix.... Eugh.

What a weird friggin' preorder bonus setup.

I feel like some ridiculously out of touch executive is responsible for this. "Piracy is a massive profit loss! I don't even want a megabyte of data out there for PC users!" ... So then we have no preload (for up to potentially 25GB worth of download, hopefully less), and practically a blank disc.

And yet we have console players who got it early via broken street dates all over the world, at the very least one week early, not to mention pirated copies.

And then there's the ridiculous Steam release time snafu where the community manager swore up and down it was 100% accurate that it was coming a day early, August 31st at 8AM Eastern (midnight New Zealand time), also gets a little snobby at people for asking for clarification, then Konami overrides that with an official midnight release time. Yeesh. Fuckin' Konami...

Yeah, I think they Mass Effect'd it up too much... but I really like it. I recently played a bit of the MP again, which still has major glaring issues, but pretty cool.

There's some uniquely cool stuff in the game, like how Shield Wall for tanks can be used to parry attacks (and is very skill-based), or skill combos, but I feel like they half-assed the multiplayer (even after a year) sadly. ME3 co-op was freakin' cool, they need to realize how important they made their co-op multiplayer after ME3.

So I've played this.. and it's alright, but not quite what I was expecting. Also fairly hard. I'm gonna give it another try though.

How does it compare gameplay-wise to Shadowrun though? I've wanted to try Shadowrun but really don't want to get into the lore/story etc. I've heard that it's heavily story-oriented, meanwhile I want to focus on the action and my squad, like in XCOM.

Awwwww ... That was my 2nd most anticipated game this year, just behind MGS 5

Well, they'll use the time wisely. The game looks awesome so far.

This only makes the wait for MGS 5 even harder...

...so....a bonafide mobile game that I can play from the comfort of my PC? No thank you.

Well, it's entirely optional. The main "fun point" of it is supposed to be infiltrating another player's base, as each base will be different.

Here's a bunch of gameplay primarily about Mother Base, with the latter portion being all about FOBs (and showcasing a PVP encounter in full).
