Haha, not a taboo topic, just one that has been talked about around here many times for the last several years.  (and probably even more times in private or the moderator forum).

Essentially, the forums and the front page grew from different audiences, for different purposes, and since there was nothing tying them together a small animosity developed on both sides of the equation.  The frontpage had been created and run from a source of voluntary love, being more of a financial burden than anything.  The forums grew largely from half of the audience from the old Gone Gold site when that closed down and GT was still Console Gold.

There are certainly things that could be done to cross pollinate, but in the past most small posts that come from front page contributors in bursts at times tend to annoy forumites because they don't follow standard forum etiquette of contributing more than just a link and not creating new threads when a discussion already exists in a dedicated thread. 

There is also often a backend change "just around the corner", coming with the next update, next forum software, next redesign, next plan, or whatever that will try to tie them together with forum logins being used on the front page and vice versa.  But I think it just never happens because it's a lot of work and there isn't enough dedicated time/money/people to do that sort of thing for what is currently two very divergent audiences.

In the end, it might be worth it in the end to benefit both sides, but there is nobody to drive it to completion.

I think this game needs it's own thread, this is going to get lost in this old FTL thread.

I've wishlisted this for eons even though I'm essentially retired from RTS gaming.

I bought this discounted Company of Heroes pack on Steam a while back and just couldn't get back into it at all, despite it being maybe my favorite game of 2006. I tried getting back into Starcraft II some years ago, but I dunno. The whole resource gathering, base-building, unit rush blah blah feels old and tired to me now. Or I'm just too old and tired for this genre anymore, the whole unit/base micromanagement thing.

I love everything Warhammer though, so of course I still hope this might reinvigorate my interest in the genre.  icon_smile

I haven't been paying too much close attention to which direction this game is going, but DoW2 had very little in the base-building traditional RTS stuff.  It was much more of a tactical squad game than the first Dawn of War.

Oh boy...   Head meets wall   tear

Sorry is this a taboo topic lol?  I'll shut up if it's not welcome and stick to talking about TV shows that no one else watches.  ninja

I was just reading the preview on Gigantic, and was planning on making a comment about it in the forum thread, but I had to find a 2+ year old topic to do so.  eek

Holy crap this originated almost 3 years ago and only recently made it to Open Beta?

I tried it once a while ago and tried it again today.  Pretty fun but kind of confusing.  I'm sure once you understand the goals it's fine but I felt like I was still able to contribute even though I wasn't sure about some of the mechanics.  Action is very fast paced and did cause a little motion sickness for me.

They removed weapon degradation due to feedback on the alpha.

That was a good decision. The further I get into the game, the more enjoyable it becomes. I'm a Dark Souls fan, but I prefer the weapons and combat in Nioh. I'm especially enjoying the crafting options, and the ability to add various new traits to my favorite weapons. An old level 5 weapon can become just as powerful as weapons found much later in the game via soul matching. The familiars are also an exceptionally good idea. I've located 5 of them now (I've read there are 20) and each has a different impact on gameplay. For example, do you prefer a familiar that offers you high hit points, stronger defense, and health geneneration, or do you prefer one that offers faster replenishment of your stamina bar, quicker attacks, and increased poison resistance?

I think Team Ninja made an excellent decision to release a few different beta demos to PSN, and then listen carefully to user feedback. Nioh is highly polished.

I'm addicted to For Honor (XB1) and still plugging away at XCOM 2 LW2 Commander difficulty.
