Maybe they should focus on fixing listen servers which they apparently broke with the switch from Gamespy to Steam. A friend finally bought me Arma 3 so we could play coop. And we still haven't played it because we can't see or connect to each others game. We've opened up all the ports and still nothing. Wasted money.

I had this issue.. a long time ago. I forget how I fixed it though. Did you try UPNP when making a server? It's a checkbox when making a game.

I usually host whenever we play anything (unless it's Breaking Point). Are you guys subscribed to anything on the workshop? If so, try unsubscribing and running without any extra content.

I'd be happy to try and help some more, if necessary (I love ARMA 3, over 1300 hours in it). Look up "Rhett" on Steam. I have a picture of a cat with human ears. Should be the very first person that comes up.

Edit: This Reddit thread should help. I think what I did, for a while, was give my friends my IP to connect to. Or have it filter specifically for the name of the game. It kinda started working again, after some time.

Garth goes on to explain that a handful of things in the demo were expedited for demo purposes. I wish it wasn't, but this is probably the most reasonable thing they could come up with in short notice, without revealing too much. Gotta keep stuff to drizzle out for hype!

Some things that won't be in the full game that were in the demo:

Aliens shooting immediately after landing/coming out. They will act like in XCOM:EU. This was just dramatic flair.

Player most likely won't be able to run, or get "two moves" after moving to pick up a comrade. That soldier would not have survived if he didn't have that extra move. (allowed them to show off the new extraction system)

The Viper normally won't kill a soldier as soon as it binds it, if the soldier has decent health, apparently. (from Garth) ... that doesn't make me any less terrified of that tongue, though.

A cool tidbit is that Garth was asked if it's possible to get to the objective while still in stealth, and he said it's possible, just highly unlikely, and very dangerous. Also that while they're adding concealment mechanics, they still know the main focus of the game is its combat.

Pretty cool trailer. I'm hopeful... It better not be arcadey. I want some grit! R6 Siege is already disappointing.

Not following The Division (I mean, I hope it turns out well, but I feel like it's gonna be overhyped), however I heard there's an embargo on information on it at the moment, for some reason.

This team made all the Just Dance games, worked on GR: Future Soldier, and Watch Dogs. I guess we'll see. I enjoyed GR:FS and Watch Dogs, personally.

Haha, I was thinking "Man, this looks boring having a hammer instead of a gun." Then I see the team-wiping 5 kill streak.

I still think that ball-monk-guy looks boring as hell though. The rest have been interesting.

Yeah... I forget how I came across it, I think someone said Petroglyph made it and I checked it out. That name is off-putting though.

I did try it, it ran poorly, but the UI reminded me a lot of classic RTS'. That price though.. with no demo... and no marketing...

I'm sure it did well enough as it made a lot of people (including myself) enjoy turn-based gameplay, when we typically don't enjoy it. I bought it first on the 360 and it was quite fun.

But I'm not complaining. I hope this means all of their resources are more focused on the game at hand. Just as Creston said, it's my #1 game as well. I cannot wait.

I don't do much with the matchmaking, but playing with friends is pretty painless except for occasional desync. Messing around in deathmatch or missions is pretty fun, or just in free roam.

Sweet, PC exclusive should mean a better UI and Controls to boot.

Cant wait. Hopefully there will be Some Coop this time around.

Only game I'm hyped for at the moment.. that trailer did it for me. Love XCOM: EU. Co-op would make me shed a tear. The new features all look great. The new UI looks good and clean, too.

Yeah, I hate MOBAs and their toxic communities, but this game's pretty fun. Probably the easiest MOBA I've played, to get into, if you have little experience with one.

And it's not too hard to get more characters. Plus the 'free' roster every week keeps things fun.

I think you can also hex edit all the drop rates, so it's pretty nice... the legendary drop rate was exceptionally low for single players, which I don't get.

But this is only one of many long-term issues Borderlands had. Scaling being another major problem, along with getting one or two-shotted even with a decent shield.

Seems pretty fun, but the melee classes seem like they're at a disadvantage and have to corner-camp.

In fact, it should come with a free bottle of lube and a towel! That'll increase sales. Embrace it!

Gah, so much silly little abuse to be on the first page of a leaderboard for a day. This game is ridiculous at high levels.

I didn't have any problems with R* social download other that being extremely slow.

I'm expecting a cluster **** on release day. Has there been any mention of needing to always be online to play single player? Does it phone home on start up?

Constant online connection not required for SP, but it likely will need an initial connection when first starting it. Not sure beyond first day though.

Launch on the old consoles was pretty bad (online was hard to get into without major issues for like a week or two), but I'm expecting things to work out better now that they've had the servers up for so long and such.

Ugh. I tried youtube without adblock once... Once. I would NEVER do that again. Too many ads, it's like paying for Hulu.

I gotta ask: How has this effected the gold selling sites? What did $20 on a gold selling site get you prior to this?

As I just gave a close friend gold for game time (before these tokens), I looked it up..

Gold runs about 1000G per $1 (so 1000:$1).

tbh my main worry is rockstars long history of shitty pc ports... ;-( here is to hoping it doesn't perform like shit on highend rigs...

Nobody's really worried about the game being a shitty port though, between all the delays + Max Payne 3 was very well done. They can't do any worse than GTA 4... I really hope they put a lot more effort into it than GTA 4 lol. Ugh.

So... a fancy word for "classes"?

This trailer is also fairly boring... I've lost all hype and hope for this game recently.

The Steam pre-order bonus for GTAV is absolutely worthless. Why would I want a money cheat as my pre-order bonus? Should have included some actual content or cosmetic items.

Because you need a pad to start a heist. And they aren't cheap. This way you can start with one and be the leader if you wish - otherwise, have fun with the grind.

Money isn't too fun to grind out (neither are levels) so I would be thankful for this. In SP, though, wouldn't worry about it. You get a lot of money from in-game heists and stuff, and also the stock market, so money is a non-issue there.

Also, they're making it so you can carry over PS3/X360 (and maybe new consoles too?) progress to PC, which is awesome.
