There will be a PC version. Still I have a PS4 and this is as good a reason as any to dust it off and get some playtime with it since there hasn't been a ton of compelling exclusives out for it.

Okay I realize that Diablo 3 takes some of the thunder from this release but I am surprisingly excited for this release. Anyone else? If so shoot Mr402 a friend request on Steam. I just have a hankering to hear "Warrior needs food badly!"

Half-Life 2. Though the launch was so plagued with issues it wasn't funny. I was one of the lucky ones who was able to play it at launch with little issue so I didn't see a problem. I also didn't think it would be half as successful as it ended up to be. I'm glad they became the example to the industry and in my opinion they saved PC gaming by creating the environment that we all enjoy now.

Why do people attack someone's economic status as the main reason they are looking to save money? I'm 38, 4 kids, two cars and a mortgage so if I have disposable income for gaming you'd best believe I see nothing wrong with being a smart consumer and getting a good deal. If folks want to pay full retail price for something when they can get it cheaper then a fool and his money are soon parted. That being said I simply hate buying a bad game no matter the price. Regardless I appreciate people's constructive input and as I type I have just pulled the trigger on SoM and the new CiV which GMG has also slapped with a awesome pre-order discount.

Okay so the upcoming gaming season is almost here. Lately I have been seeing some serious preorder sale prices for PC downloadable titles. Case in point is Shadow of Mordor. Which today was discounted to 37.50 on greenmangaming.com. This game has been on my radar for a while now but lately I have been very wary of any supposed AAA game that gets a pre-order price that low before launch. Example is Aliens Colonial Marines which was discounted by the same site for around the same price. Needless to say I drank the Kool-aid of previews and the supposed Gearbox (Shame on Andy Pitchford) studio's involvement. Which because of the too good to be true pre-order price fooled me into buying a shit game which is a pet peeve of mine at any price. So we return to Shadows Of Mordor which is now being discounted before launch and this has me paranoid that GmG knows something that the industry news sites aren't telling us. This game is going to suck. So what do GiantBombers think? What thing's do others look for that puts up a red flag that a title is not ready for prime time? Lack of gameplay videos? Development time?

Break down your formula for not stepping in shit. I think it would help alleviate a lot of grief if people could learn some great tools to avoid making a uninformed decision. Also before I hear it I realize that the easiest answer is to wait for review but once again if you wait for a review the game is no longer on sale. Input is appreciated.

Bought Colonial Marines because of Gearbox's supposed involvement. I'm usually pretty good about sniffing out a turd but I'm a huge fan of the franchise and learned a lesson big time. No way I'm touching this at launch. I'll wait for it to go on sale during a slow time for releases.

I commend you for keeping a open mind about this game but I respectfully disagree with you completely. If you like the old games especially Undisputed 3 you should not even attempt to play this. At least those games had a logical control scheme that worked. Punches had impact and the counter system was worthwhile and useful. I bought a PS4 specifically for this game and am so glad I rented it after playing the demo. In fact I have to give EA praise for even releasing a demo which to me exposed the faults of this game instantly. It made me cancel a pre-order and instead I rented it from gamefly just to give it a serious chance. After playing it for a couple days it went right back into the mail. Maybe EA will get it right next time.

Controls are overly complicated and while I practiced and took my time to try to learn it, I never felt that my inputs on the controller were translating to the action on the screen. Strikes lack impact standing and on the ground, fighters move sets are all the same regardless of styles. Submission system is fun in theory but against a human opponent you'll be lucky to sink one in at all unless they are completely drained of stamina.

I'll sum it up with one statement. This is the most disappointing game since Aliens Colonial Marines.
