"this review is to counterbalance negative reviews, ignore Chinese spammers." lol what?

Can't find a reliable source, but some people are saying that the game was promised to be translated into Chinese but got canceled yesterday and screwing over a lot of Chinese people that pre-ordered based on that. So a lot of the negative reviews are "Great game, but no Chinese."

And the Chinese government forbids the Chinese people to use Steam's refunds policy? That's sad.

Is the refunds policy applied when a pre-order is cancelled? Seems like they'd get their money back in this case. I can still imagine their frustration, however.

I used to pirate back in the day but it was for the reason being that I simply had no money. Now that I do, I never pirate, however paying full price is even a burden these days. You almost need price brackets just for gaming because you have your "child" gamers, "rich adult gamers" and "poor/midclass adult gamers" that find it hard to put out the extra $$$.

And you do. It's called
1. Pre-ordering / buying day 1
2. Waiting for a price drop
3. Waiting for the "bargain bin" / deep sale

Games that are shit and don't sell well get discounted quickly. This is how many industries work. You can buy a new car, a slightly used one or an old one. You can go to the movie theater, on DVD or wait for it to be on cable.

These deep discount sites are most likely selling keys meant for other regions where people don't have as much disposable income. You're basically cheating the system to get your game day 1 and at a discount. Whether you have some sort of justification for doing that is up to you, but just know the facts and that there might be subtle consequences.

And BTW, If IGN is posting email to people about buying this game from CD Key.com for $32.95, then I guess its not to shady now is it?

I thought IGN had a pretty shady reputation around here.

Hell, if I remember, my copy of the original Civ was a special edition. $80 with a huge manual and a shitty mousepad.

$80 in 1991: ~$140 now. I don't know what people complain about with video game prices - there are so many cheap options nowadays. If you really insist that the price of the "full game" (base with all the DLCs) should be so low, just have some self-control and wait a year or so after release before buying. Problem solved. Doing it with DA:I now.

I'm definitely keeping this on my "watch list", but I'd like to see more options for espionage, subterfuge and general sneakiness. Space is huge and I don't think that its territory should be treated like territory on land. There should be options for moving around and taking meaningful actions without necessarily being detected.

Until it's "complete" I don't intend on even trying it.

The catch-22 is that it may never be "complete" (by your definition) if enough people don't buy it. It sounds like Episode 1 taken on it's own is complete, however.

I'm sure the decision to go episodic was not made lightly and may have been the only practical option.

This looks cool, but I think I'll wait for the maximally patched version. After the AI debacle at the launch of Rome 2, I don't really see any point in playing TW games at launch anymore.

Well I'm sure a lot of people are working on software that they hope to be the Killer App for VR. Oculus/Facebook/Sony themselves are heavily motivated to make this happen since it will sell their hardware. We shall see what they come up with.

Minimum wage increase isn't going to change much - government programs from taxes are already helping poor people make ends meet.

Avoiding BvS like the plague which is a shame since I moderately liked Man of Steel.

Oh well, I'm sure Japan gets the shaft with a lot of games, so let's let them have this one. Think of it as an extended beta test.

There is a middle ground, you know!

Well, we reach the middle ground after the two sides fight it out from their respective extremes.

Season 6 is their best yet huh? What else is he gonna say?

That's true, but at least he explains the statement in the full interview. Sounds like it should be solid in any case.

"Space of Spacecraft"

"This is not World of Warcraft in space!"

"It's much more sophisticated."


My bet is a MOBA as described. I thought this was out already. What is Heroes then? Nahhh, I don't wanna know.

You're thinking Blizzard, bruh.

Modern gaming is mostly flash little substance with a few gems here and there.

Things haven't changed that much - we just only remember the good times. For every solid game you remember, there's 100 that you were utter garbage or completely forgettable.

Yeah, it's all one big trick to get people to get a free upgrade to the latest version of the OS we all use anyway. Good thing we here are smart enough to see through their scheme. It's not like having everyone on the same OS version would be better for everyone or something.

They'll never make me upgrade my precious Windows 7 just like they never made me upgrade my precious Windows XP.

Maybe too expensive for the average Joe, but plenty of enthusiasts out there will fill help fill the gap until if/when the technology costs comes down. I doubt the experience would be as good if the equipment cost less at this point. Maybe they could sell at a loss like they sometimes do with consoles, but why would they do that if demand is high for their current production? Sounds like it's priced right.

I'd recommend computer glasses. I believe the main difference is that the focal point geared to about arm's length, so screen text is as clear as it's going to get. Throw in some anti-glare coating and you're good to go. My vision isn't terrible, but I used to get headaches when on the computer before I got computer glasses.
