I figure they just started out with each game version relatively equal, and are tweaking for the individual systems, like that turret nerf that didn't hit PC.

I've been enjoying it, started playing the day after launch and didn't touch beta. There just seems to be a frantic feel to the gameplay that I haven't felt in years in other fps I've played, and I like it. I have some doubts about the longevity, unless they put out a few more game modes, but I'm having a ball for now. Oh, and last night was the first time I'd heard anyone in voice chat for the game.

Why the fuck would you "face" or "confront" an immortal emperor? That's about as fucking retarded as it gets but being an EA/BioWhore game it's par for the course these days. Retard central craps out retarded story. Great job.

Immortal doesn't necessarily mean unkillable. Just look at Highlander.

To be fair, so far everything I've kickstarted I've been satisfied with, with the possible exception of Mighty #9. I think every time they post on that one, my expectations just drop a little more.
It's like lending money to a friend, be careful, and never give out any more than you can afford to lose.

When I noticed something was odd, found the issue withing 5 minutes or less with a google search. Admittedly, it was later in the day when I tried to log into Steam.
As for not notifying anyone, yeah they didn't update the main page (which was stupid, imho), but they did put up a post in the Community forum.

I think the idea of a stand alone game or movie focusing on Han Solo has completely lost it's luster after what they did to the character in the Force Awakens.


Pretty sure that's what Harrison Ford wanted, seeing as how that's what what he wanted for his character in Return of the Jedi, so I don't know all of that can be put on the writers. It does mirror Ep IV, in a way, though.

Still Gamebryo...

yup, a 20 year old engine :/

you can only throw so many coats of paint on a dead horse...

it's not the "graphics" which hold it back, it's everything else, the object count, view distance, polygon count, animations, really the animations still look like they're 1999...

*Looks at Fallout 4*
*Looks at Quake III Arena*
. . .
Yep, look exactly the same.

Wonder if they're just extending the voice chat they put in WoW a while back. Which no one seems to use?

Wondering if they were playing that real time, or if it was like that Lionhead demo a couple years back, the one with the boy in it, where it was all pre-rendered and choreographed for them to interact with it.

I guarantee they had to mention MWO in that pitch video specifically because they are using their art style. Basically free advertising. It sucks that they didn't even mention MW3, MW4, and MW:LL. Oh well, I'm in it for the turn-based gaming and SO... SOOOOO glad it is not f2p, hallelujah.

I can almost see it now, "What's this MWO they are mentioning? A new MechWarrior, could it be!?" *Intrepid clueless buyer Googles it and finds it* "Oh is it like MW5?" *They see f2p* "Oh its that game... so its not actually MW5... and the Mechs cost more than Shadowrun Returns, Hong Kong, and BattleTech combined?"

If I remember right, a lot of the original artwork was used without permission from Japanese anime and manga, so they had to change it, probably why they went with MWO's art style.

Loved Mystery Men, one of my favorite movies, always hated they didn't make a sequel. Heard Stiller still wants too, but that was a couple years ago, and I think it would just flop now.

As a side note, Gamestop sells downloads/codes for Blizzard games on their website.

I've played the beta, and while it took a little work to get it to run decently, I actually enjoyed it in the same mindless pew pew shoot 'em up way I did doom, quake, and quake 2.
Starting to wonder at this point how much of the hate is due to it being "shit" as opposed to the COD games being a former PC-centric game series that was co-opted to consoles and has become a semi recycle each year, kind of like Madden.
As a side note, the screen shots look noticeably better than anything I could get the game to look like via current settings.

I don't really see this working out too well, especially if it's live action.
All they need to do is make it Mad Max: Fury Road only with vault hunters and job done. They won't though, they'll fuck it up and use horrific amounts of CGI and horrible dialogue.

I'd rather the movie be something like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXoeT0W1waA rather than a live action with CGI.
To be honest though, I'd rather see more Codehunters than a Borderlands movie, lol.

Turok! Come for the dinosaurs, stay for the best example of the aphorism "nobody likes jumping puzzles in a fps". Those later levels, falling and having to reply like half of the level to get to where you fell and then falling again.

Also, the first turok was like a showcase of the 3dfx chip if I recall. So most people never played it, because most people never had a 3dfx.

3dfx was the 3d card to own if you were a gamer back in the day, blew nvidia's original cards, Riva's I think they were called, away in terms of speed. Owned two voodoo 2's to sli myself, still have them packed away somewhere.

ARK. Bought it based on hype of some friends, and it being a top seller. Played it, thought it was actually pretty decent, they seem to patch it multiple times a day even, but . . . while I was able to get it to run decently, my biggest issues is spawning in front of stuff that kills me. Start a game, there's a T-Rex, and I'm dead. I respawn, oh hello mr. t-rex . . . dead again. Rinse/repeat.

So Otherland is worth a read then?
As a side note, one series I thought started well but went downhill was the Sword of Truth series. Got to the point I thought the author was only writing it to come up with new ways to torture the heroes.
Seriously, I would have said enough is enough and opened up a can of whoop ass before putting up with half the crap he put them through in those books.
