Are you guys still playing? Can I get an invite if you are?

I picked this up the other day on Steam. Got it on the tail end of the sale. Pretty darn good, the ship construction part of it and the combat is definitely the high point of it. I've stayed up way too late playing it over the weekend....

I really liked it. Best sci fi film I've seen in a long time. Two thumbs up. smile

I just watched my son go though some of the tutorials. It seemed to cover most of the moves, and I though there were some character specific combos it had him do.

It's going to be like wings of liberty, but instead you play as the Zerg and there will be new units.

If that's all it is then I am so IN. Just don't know why it takes 2.5 years to make that.

It takes that long to render all the CG. smile

All the former packs are up again, so if missed any you can pick them up now.

Wow. For anyone on the fence, you really need to watch the videos. I'm floored....

+1 to the above. Game is made of win and packed with awesome... logging back in now...
12  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Gamestop Sword of the Stars Franchise sale on: August 17, 2012, 04:26:20 PM
$10 for SotS 1 and 2. 1 includes all the bonus content. First 1000 people, according to the page on GS.

http://impulsedriven.com/id/flashsales/spotlight/?AFFID=eml_i081612_09&CID=eml_i081612_09

At this point, the game is getting pretty close to what it should have been at release. I'd say it's worth 10 bucks for both at this point.

To confirm from one of my gift purchases for this, you can activate this copy of SOTS2 on steam. Uncertain on the SOTS1 version included in this.

How is the game in it's current state?
14  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Legends of Pegasus on: August 09, 2012, 02:49:01 AM
Nearly bit on this a couple times now. If it wasn't for Endless Space (which is great, even if the combat is a little lacking) and Sword of the Stars 2 (which, after constant patching, is now almost at the point it should have been at release) I already would have.... kinda waiting on the first round of reviews to see how it pans out. Looks promising, though.

Quote from: ravenvii on March 25, 2012, 02:49:18 AM

Yep, the official Apple Smart Cover. Black leather. The newer version that Apple modified back in October. Older Smart Covers don't work with the new iPad (won't sleep/wake the iPad), but the newer ones will.

Not perfect condition, it has been used and has a few minor scratches, etc. But functions perfectly.

Here: $30 shipped. Retail: $70.

Do you still have this?
18  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mystery GOG countdown (now general GOG discussion) on: June 19, 2012, 12:11:56 AM
That is awesome! I halfway tried to get these off of ebay back in the day, but the prices for these in good condition were always insane. Much like the Quest for Glory collections....
19  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: GOG: Wing Commander/Ultima Sale on: June 01, 2012, 10:07:55 PM
Yeah, well, I have those on media, also. smile

Note for the completionists: Privateer does not include Righteous Fire.
20  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: GOG: Wing Commander/Ultima Sale on: June 01, 2012, 02:34:51 PM
Too good to pass up. Never mind I have all of these on media, including the wc4 DVD version.
21  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Deluxe OGRE on: May 12, 2012, 04:39:04 PM
Thread necromancy! I could have sworn I followed a link from GT for this, but all I don't see a mention on the other Kickstarter threads here. Ogre is getting reprinted (6e) and had a cool KS run gathering almost a million dollars in support. And yes, some of that money is mine.

It closed now, but hit the link for the summary. One of the good news for this is that it will now see a larger run and even non-KS supporters should have a good chance to pickup a copy. And it's cool to see Steve getting to the director's cut version of his baby.

Now I just need to track down where my copy of Battlesuit got off to...

The devs did say that they are working on balancing and damage values after this build.  They think they made the critters too tough and the players too weak.  The fun of balancing....
I've been enjoying the difficulty but  still quite low level. 

So far, (after playing necro, ranger, warrior, engineer, thief), thief is my favorite.  It's easy to comprehend and pretty acrobatic in practice.  I wanted to love my necro but I wasn't "getting it" yet -- seemed to be very reactive to what others are doing around me, no non-awkward solo build that I could construct -- although switching between dagger and staff was kind of fun.  I've tried 3 weapons (dagger, pistol and sword -- with the various off-hand options) with my thief and each has had a distinct and comprehensible play style.

It was when I was playing my thief that the game began to click for me.

Necro really takes off with axe/warhorn, esp. if you are going minion heavy. Staff necro might be ok for party support, but it was subpar for solo in my experience.

I'll have to put some thoughts together later, going to get some sleep now.

Is it down? I can't log in or hit the beta forums.

As Petty would say, the waiting is the hardest part.

Quote from: Bullwinkle on April 13, 2012, 11:09:46 PM

I never finished the original Witcher.  Is that going to be a big problem for this one?

I've started this on PC, but not finished it. The biggest part of not playing W1 is missing the story from it. It was pretty darn good, IMO. But there's not a lot of continuity between the two, outside of the settings, yourself, and a few major characters.

Think of the games like short stories from a favorite author or tv episodes. They are largely self contained, it's pretty easy to jump in, figure out who's who, and enjoy the story.
28  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Guild Wars 2 on: April 12, 2012, 02:27:16 AM
I'm curious if trait respecs are still going to be free when the game hits, and can a trait build be saved, ala how skill builds were able to be saved in GW1. Can you save an overall equipment/skill/trait combo to reuse later, or just traits (since the skill/attribute build from GW1 is now largely consolidated with weapon selection)... or if you want to change, do you have to rebuild from scratch each time?

Anyone have this and can make a copy of disk 2? Mine is scratched. I will offer up photo evidence of it, etc.

For anyone that was on the fence about this, the Kickstarter closes in 27 hours. I went ahead and went to the 2nd tier to get into the beta... I figure it will give me a break for when I'm tired of the Guild Wars 2 beta. smile

32  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: EVE Online players can get GTX 560 with PLEX on: March 29, 2012, 01:33:58 AM
I think they have the value off. I would think 20 Plex would be worth ~ 7 Billion ISK, not 7 million.

7 Mil won't even buy the paint on a BS.
33  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect 3 - Spoilers/Ending (Now with Spoiler Tags) on: March 18, 2012, 05:25:55 AM
I'm with everyone else here. The ending SUCKS. My thanks for supporting Bioware and this franchise for it's run is this ending?

The Hitler youtube and the '5 reason the ending to Mass 3 sucks' article linked prior pretty much sum it up perfectly.

The ironic thing is, up until the ending, your character/story has HUGE attachment with what you've done and 'your' story up to that point. Decisions, friendships, Geth/Quarian, Krogan etc. Probably the most emotional attachement I've ever seen in gaming up until this point (I'm 37. I've been gaming since 14 or so). And the ending just goes and disregards everything.

Honestly? I hope Bioware can salvage this clusterfuck, but as a fan of the series, at this point, I just feel screwed. And if they do manage to add a decent ending, and it's actually one worth having, I'll have to pay for it when I already paid for the game.

SCREWED.
34  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gratuitous Tank Battles on: March 15, 2012, 12:22:36 AM
Anyone preorder and have the beta yet? I'd have gotten it, but ME3 cleaned me out for this month, and the GW2 preorder will clear me out next, so it's looking pretty slim right now....
35  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect 3 - Impressions Incoming! on: March 06, 2012, 03:57:29 AM
Log all the way out of the Origin app (close the notification bar portion, also) and sign back in.
36  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: FTL: Faster Than Light on: March 06, 2012, 03:07:11 AM
If you already have an Onlive account, it's pretty much a no brainer to try it out there. I can't remember how annoying it was to setup the initial account, but it's worth it to play demos and stuff on Onlive. Pretty much instant access to a demo to try a new game with no download.... then purchase it on Steam or one of the other portals.
37  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Guild Wars 2 on: March 05, 2012, 02:53:36 PM
It's looking like the Mesmer is going to be a TON of fun. So looking forward to this....
38  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning announced on: March 04, 2012, 10:56:06 PM
Having lots of fun. This almost feels like a singleplayer equivalent for the MMO lewt pinyata. And tons of subquests.

Mage is pretty godlike... which is ironic, because I really liked the rogue in the demo. I keep holding onto rogue gear to maybe respec, but.... again, pretty godlike. smile
39  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: FTL: Faster Than Light on: March 04, 2012, 10:52:53 PM
FYI, this game is up for demo on Onlive. You can play multiple 30 minute runs on the current version, not just a single run. Lots of fun. I'd probably classify this as a cross of SPAZ and rogue with maybe a dash of privateer; it really looks like this will be lots of fun when it's released.
40  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning announced on: March 01, 2012, 10:21:59 PM
Yes. You get a higher level of the skill, but it does not count towards unlocking new tiers of skills. If it's maxed at 5, and you have +2 and +1, you will have it at an effective 8.

I think some skills don't scale beyond the max, but some definately do (speaking on the mage tree).
