I think we should have a bot on this site that rounds up forum threads that are commonly made and just automatically generates them once a year.

I wonder if they were like holding out for Nintendo to throw some money at them to compensate and at this point are just like "fuck it, just put it out."

Off topic, but Is this game ever getting reviewed or is everyone afraid to be the first given the expectations. From what i've gathered from the length of the game reviewers have got to be close to having played enough of it by now? Surely the post game doesn't end up being much more content wise than a rinse repeat loot grab in the same way as diablo 3's adventure mode. Not to say there is anything wrong with that but is everyone waiting for a huge mechanical spider or something to suddenly jump out 50 hours in so they can finally say they saw everything and write a review? Do you think Bungies weird comments to reviewers to not "kick the tires" have had an impact?

Well the story isn't like amazing, it's interesting enough to provide the environments and keep you heading through. The main characters are what you make them, literally you decide what they will be like. The occasional side character is pretty good though and there is a fair bit of tongue in cheek scenarios and humour. It's not like old Bioware quality but then again neither is anything these days.

As far as RPG-numbers-going-up the leveling is actually quite slow by comparison to most games, therefore every point you get is fairly precious so you need to assign carefully.

This game can be a little rough around the edges in a few spots it definitely doesn't hold your hand or tell you where to go and the occasional environment puzzle has some leaps of logic you would never think of, i've googled a couple times to keep myself moving through it or trying to work out where I need to go.

The combat is definitely the biggest part of the game and what you will find yourself doing the most, so I don't know. I doubt it, but is their a demo for this game? Otherwise perhaps wait for a sale.

I mean it's a great game In my opinion, definitely one of the best i've played in years as far as RPG's go. But i'm a sucker for these sort of turnbased/tactical/whatever style strategy games.

Prison Architect is really turning in to a great game with its consistent monthly updates, and $10 is cheaper than it has ever been on Steam. This bundle is worth it just for that.

I've spent way more hours with this game than I have most triple A titles. Definitely worthwhile.

To be fair the original halo story delivery was considered pretty average. It's just that the characters gave it a lot of personality, which i'm hearing is lacking in destiny.

Wow, seems super deep.

Just checked this out again now that it's fully released and I dunno it's pretty much what you would expect. I'm never going to play something like this competitively so it's a little upsetting there is no proper single player campaign, I'll probably play through a little galactic war anyway to get my monies worth. The whole server game stuff or however it's handled really gives me the shits though, and I still run into fucking interface issues with the camera getting stuck zoomed in or things lagging out or I don't know it's something new everytime - In all these cases the usual solution is to quit out and start again, unfortunately i think that just records whatever map I was on as a loss though and it takes a LOT of motivation to reboot the game at that point. When I first booted it up I got an unskippable opening cut scene which was fine if the youtube player with them announcing the changes wasn't running simultaneously in the background - it's those things. I guess you get what you pay for though and you can't expect triple A delivery every time out of a kickstarter launched game.

edit - This hasn't really topped the steam top sellers as much as you might expect and the full release has felt super quiet, but I really think that at this point they probably actually made their majority of sales during the early access period - which is kind of interesting to me in terms of when a studio might decide to call it done and move on etc. (not to say anything about this release, I just think in general it's interesting.)

I bought the game due to the idea of fighting across a solar system and crashing moons into planets. All that is in there unfortunately are the camera controls just awful, I can't shake the feeling that I would enjoy the game more if it was on a flat rather than spherical plane but then it would just be supreme commander.

I will continue to play the game more to see if I can get used to the camera or find the sweet spot in the settings but I'm skeptical.

Im pretty sure you can pretty much entirely control the camera with the middle mouse button? I've definitely found that relatively smooth and simple.

Or we could be open minded, but that's no fun. I'm already on the X is causing the downfall of society train when it pertains to social networks, so whatever.

I'm only 30 and i already hate anyone under 18!

Ok not exactly, but it's just the way it goes. When we are 60 and beyond we will probably look at society and for the most part be all WTF. Who is to say we are wrong. Who is to say our grandparents are wrong now. Lets be honest society is a bit of a shit show and has in many aspect degraded in recent times. Not to say it hasn't improved as well. At the base of it, humans hate change and blame things they don't understand.
