Also Starforge



for $4.99 (75% off)

I'm tempted but it seems like this had a lot of negative feedback from the early builds last year but it was improving...has anyone played it recently?

Robocraft.  I spent way more time with it last weekend than I intended, and they've put out an update.

Yup, played plenty of Robocraft.  Some of the shine is starting to wear off as progress slows and the grind sets in, but it's still fun.

Tried the Evolve alpha, but not for long.

And I reinstalled the original Dirt on my PC as well.  Still a great game.

They said robot and I was hoping for an Omega type game, build a robot, program it and set it loose. There was another game just like Omega but much more graphic oriented about 10 years ago which was also good. In Robocraft it looks like you are building a vehicle to drive, not a robot, correct? (Their website is horrible).

Yeah, Robocraft is all piloted vehicles, not AI controlled. It all leads to some great wackiness as the vehicle parts get destroyed and people go spiraling away, a bit like World of Tanks goes to the circus. 

But yes, I did play Omega back on the ol' Apple IIGS, and loved it to death.   icon_biggrin

I've had that show in my queue for ages since the first season was available, I assume you'd say that it is worthwhile starting?

I watched this on a plane a couple months ago and thought it was good for what it was.  Lots of cool cars going fast and doing crazy stuff.  Plot was lame/predictable, but that was to be expected.

It so happens that I ordered one of those extended batteries for the pad from Amazon. At the time I ordered it, the cost was $65. Now it's up to about $75. It looks like Nintendo no longer sells the extended battery themselves. I checked the website and could not find it. If it is discontinued, the prices on Amazon are going to get ridiculous, so if anyone is interested in getting one, now would be the time to get it.

This is the product page on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EZPU0E2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Yeah, I had looked around for the one on Nintendo's site a few weeks back and could no longer find it.  I'm not sure why they quit selling it but I don't think I'm willing to spend $75 on it, I figured $35 or maybe $40.  It looks like PlayAsia still has them on sale for $35 though.

Haha, I got an offer for one of those in the mail the other week as well.  I'm not sure whatever "VIP Benefits" they come up with is worth $500 yearly fee.  Purely a goofy status symbol credit card.

Sounds like they are doing the developer equivalent of going to the pawn shop to try and get some much needed cash so they can stay afloat.

Yeah, that's how I read the situation as well.  They've pawned off this studio and game to keep what they have left going.  Which doesn't really seem to be on steady ground either considering how many people have been leaving.

Probably another good move for Deep Silver, though, if they can just establish the same team back on the project and finish it off.  Seemed to work out when they did that for Saints Row 4.  Hopefully they delay it to next summer or something and really polish it and release sometime not around every other major title.

I guess there's a difference between a sandbox game and something where your only goal is to build buildings.  It's the difference between Minecraft's Survival mode and the Creative building mode. 

I was pretty sure they had specifically said at one point that they were looking to add some more sandbox gameplay and non-traditional elements to it.  In fact, quoting someone we know  slywink:

So much fun to be had and potential. The lead dev said they would add combat as well to this, and you'll be able to place NPC's and what-have-we so...I'm rather excited about the future of this.

Hmm, on the one hand there look to be some really nice visuals and the groundwork for cool action scenes, but on the other something about the trailer left me feeling hollow.  Oh well, it's early, I'm sure I'll bite.
63  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Everquest Next and Everquest Next Landmark on: July 27, 2014, 10:23:10 PM
For anyone that was looking to get in on this, I noticed that all the founder's packs are 66% off on Steam right now.  If you're into paying for closed beta, that means you can get in on the lowest level for less than $7.

BTW, has anybody been "playing" this?  I'm really curious to know if there are any gameplay elements yet or if it's still purely a building sandbox.
64  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Gear Up and Robocraft on: July 27, 2014, 03:12:15 AM
I tried out both of these today and surprisingly I found I like Robocraft more. 

Initially I thought that the more simplified building, variety of movement types and overall style of Gear Up was going to appeal to me more, but in the end I didn't find it all that satisfying.  It may have been because I was so limited in choice in the free version, and it felt like I wasn't earning

Robocraft is much more like Nuts & Bolts with the piece-by-piece cubic building, but it is more limited in means of locomotion than Gear Up, seemingly only wheels and hovering.  I'll have to play quite a bit more to unlock all the things I want, but I already feel like there is plenty to mess with in Robocraft.  And despite any limitations, the battles are much more satisfying for some reason, and I felt like I was earning enough every match to make me want to go right back into it.

My experience during the 5pm event was that I was alone in the city and I couldn't get matched for the special pvp event. I actually couldn't get my friends list to come up so I wonder if it was having effects on live as a whole.

Yeah, I can't pull up my Friends list on my Xbone now, and I'm not even playing Destiny.  Something is boned.

I'd like to get some time with The Crew beta, but it ends tonight so may not. 

I might download and fire up that Geared Up game (and/or Robocraft) to see what I think there.

But knowing me, I'll probably end up trying out a dozen random games on Steam because I'm bored and can't stick with anything these days.
69  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: So when do you quit? on: July 25, 2014, 11:29:04 PM
Yeah, I'm not the type of person to jump ship at first sign of frustration and trouble (or second, or third sign) but there comes a point where you need to look after your own sanity and well being. 

I'm sure it's different with so much changing management, but sometimes you also just have to face the fact that the company you work for is never going to completely change, despite promises otherwise.  Everybody loves to promise they will do things differently and better, but without concrete plans for how to accomplish that it's really not too likely as people fall back into patterns.

Being in a volatile industry, I tend to try to keep enough money in the bank for at least a few months of rent and living if things go bad.  Recently I used that as a way to just quit and take a few months off when things were looking grim.

looks similar to Robocraft

Yeah, there seems to be a little indie resurgence in these sort of Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts type games lately. 

There was that Scraps game that was on Kickstarter last year and is still in development, and then TerraTech is just finishing their Kickstarter in a couple days as well.

I didn't realize that Robocraft just launched as F2P on Steam a couple weeks ago as well.  smile

66% on Rotten Tomatoes so far means this isn't a total stinker.
72  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PC] Gear Up and Robocraft on: July 25, 2014, 06:45:04 PM
I just saw the trailer for Gear Up and thought it looks pretty cool.  It's a multiplayer vehicle shooter where you build your own crazy tanks from lots of parts.  

From the video it looks like there are lots of types of locomotion, from more standard wheels and tank treads to sticky legs that let you walk on walls and some sort of goo balls that do...something.

The beta is available now on Steam and is free to play (restricted on inventory space unless you pay), so I may have to give it a whirl this weekend.

I guess the Phantom Menace doesn't surprise me too much.  The younger generation that had no previous tie to Star Wars had really no concept of how terrible the prequels were in comparison.  If the prequels are your introduction to the universe then that's probably the baseline for how you judge everything from then on.
78  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1/PS3/360/PC] Battlefield: Hardline on: July 22, 2014, 09:16:06 PM
I'm actually pretty glad for that delay.  That makes this one of the few true betas in recent years, where they are taking feedback from it and actually applying it to the game before it releases. 

What I played of their beta didn't strike me as something that I was going to pay money for, so hopefully now they can differentiate it from core Battlefield a bit and make it shine.
