Re: "Endless space" Alpha

If anyone is on the fence about getting the game: it's apparently going Beta on Monday. So the currently running 25% off sale will end. On the plus side, they're going to release the last three races (which have been announced and seem pretty awesome) and multi-player. If you like 4X turn-based stra...

Re: "Endless space" Alpha

It’s very playable, but 2 of the 5 races are not there, multiplayer is not possible yet and the balance in not quite tight, but the combat is new and interesting and the idea from sins of a solar empire with the not all planets can be colonized strait away mixed with random modifiers on planets to ...

Re: The Elder Scrolls discussion

Now, I tried to get into this. REALLY sat down and tried. I managed to get past the graphics (for which I'm currently downloading a mod for getting ready to try again), the tiny fonts on higher resolutions (getting a mod for that too), and the combat being way different. As in if I'm not high enoug...

Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic

Angral is a fairly tough fight, probably the second toughest in the Knight story line. Are you Sentinel or Guardian? I can offer some advice for the former, but I haven't yet fought him as a Guardian. What server are you on? I'm sure there's someone around that would be willing to help if you happen...

Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic

Sentinel is a lot of fun. Spec Watchmen and you'll not only be a lot more survivable, but also get to set people ON FIRE. I don't think it's a very Jedi thing to do. I'm not sure why your enemies' anguished screams as they slowly burn to death heals you, either, but I'm not going to ask questions.

I know, it's terrible. I lay awake every night, waiting for the cold knock on the door, for the squads to take me to the prison camps for re-education.

IA is pretty awesome. It's a bit like being James Bond if he worked for the Space Nazis. Story is really good, I think. All the twists and turns you'd expect playing as an intelligence agent. And they do that thing where it feels like there is some great big secret lurking just out of view. As a mea...

Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic

Just go to 50 on my Knight. A lot of people complain about the Knight story not being very good. I can sort of see why, at least for the first half of act one. Nar Shadaa and on I though were really pretty good. Act two felt like filler; interesting and has a great bit at the end but honestly felt l...

Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic

I thought the Consular story was pretty boring over all. The VA (Nolan North) doesn't help. Everything about it is just so bland. It's mushy oatmeal: the game. Plus the Act 1 villain has what is possibly the stupidest name for a villain ever. And all the characters say it in the most dramatic and te...

The save Malik mission does count. But if you knock a dude out and then he gets killed when the bot explodes, THAT doesn't count. I still got the achievement when that happened. The tutorial mission counts as well, as Darkobra said. It's really annoying because the game doesn't indicate this in ...

NDA and all that, but I'm actually very excited about the game now. Like, it wasn't even on my radar at all before the test and now I'm seriously considering selling an organ to buy it.
