You missed the point entirely I think. I really don't care about what the general consensus is for something that I have tried for myself and like. There are plenty of movies, books, games that I like but public opinion says is bad. The world isn't a hive mind so it's expected.There will be no rejoicing on my part whether the game gets good reviews or bad reviews.
I came off way too aggressive. What I mean is the game/gameplay didn't impress me in any way. It just looks so bland and uninspiring. Didn't something happen quite recently with the game? I read something somewhere.
This isn't the first time they have said this. They always say it's what they aim for but apparently they come up short. I just don't listen to anything game devs/publishers say. I have no expectations so when something good does happen I am genuinely surprised and happy.
I've been waiting for Premium to go on sale. The base game does but never the standalone premium package. Hopefully once the final DLC is out it will.
I've been playing the beta and i like the game.
Calling someone who likes it a "fanboi" is as idiotic as me calling you a hater for not liking it.
We'll get plenty of time to read the ratings/reviews once the game is released. Let's rejoice then. You, the fanboi and me the hater.
Did not expect this. Great news.
Wow what is going on over at MS. Are they actually starting to care?
God damn! That trailer was amazing.
I don't think Steam should be an open-platform. There are people who have purchased many, many games on Steam thinking this is a well-managed store where they don't have to worry about junk filling it up. Now it's a complete 180 and it has become a mess.
At least give us more ways to customize what we see on the store front so that we are not bombarded with junk like this. Steam has become a laughing stock this year because of titles like this. They are not an uncommon thing either.
So if this is the route they are taking I want more control over what I see. Because right now it's just a mess of crap with the occasional game that's actually worth buying.
Both Valve and their paying customers are being abused by people who want to make a quick buck. If Valve is okay with losing a lot of sales over this then whatever. Let a few people be suckered into buying shit like this, tons more will take there money elsewhere which is what I am starting to do.
My 2 cents.
By Valve's paying customers you presumably mean the people who distribute via Steam, since it's free to use. I can see how they would be less inclined to do so if they thought their game would be lost among the tides of broken open-world zombie survival sims and Flappy Bird clones.
I don't think this is a problem. What PC gamer who plays the latest games doesn't own a 64 bit OS? In fact every retail computer at Best Buy, etc. come installed with a 64 bit OS not 32. The only way you can possibly own a 32 bit system is if your computer is ancient and if that's the case I doubt you'd be playing these types of games on it anyway.
I'm happy I decided to go with an i7 over i5 despite people saying "it's a waste of money for gaming." You need to buy components that are going to last you a long time and I had a feeling the HT would make a big difference in multi threaded next gen games.
This is the great thing about a new console generation. While it's weak compared to high end PC's it still ups the bar for your average game. It's about time games make use of a 64 bit OS, multiple threads, more than 4 gigs of RAM, etc.
Ah.I own a 2009 gaming computer for which I payed 1600 euros,and it can run every single game of this generation,while it (FOR SOME FUCKING REASON) has 32 bit Windows 7.
I know and it's why at one point I did expect another UT. But I lost hope when they kept saying "we have no plans for UT." lines over and over. That plus their recent track record I really thought we wouldn't see another game for a long, long time.
Right now my only hope is that it's not a F2P cash shop title.
to be fair UT wouldn't work with a cash shop as the thing that made it worth playing was the sheer diversity of player made mods, if anything selling it as a full game with the ability to mod it to the level you could UT99 would actually do more to help them sell UE4 since it would give people a starting point and let them realise how good the engine actually is even under a confined set of tools.
