I am pretty excited about this game to say the least. I've dumped a ton of time into the previous Dirt Rally, not so much on Dirt 4 though since it didn't feel as good.

I would love to see how the Modern Rally GT cars feel.

    • Lancia Fulvia
    • Mini Cooper
    • Peugot 205 GTI
    • VW MK2 Golf GTI

    • Fiat 131 Abarth
    • Ford MK2 Escort

    • Opel Adam
    • Peugeot 208
  • Modern Rally NR4
    • Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X
    • Subaru WRX STI
  • Modern Rally R5
    • Citroen C3
    • Ford Fiesta
    • Mitsubishi Space Star
    • Peugeot 208 T16 R5
    • Skoda Fabia
    • VW Polo GTI
  • Rallycross Supercars
    • Audi S1 T16 4x4
    • Ford Fiesta MK7 T16 4x4
    • Ford Fiesta MK8 T16 4x4
    • Peugeot 208 T16 4x4
    • Renault Megane RS RX 4x4 T16

I really want to see how the Modern GT cars will feel at this time. I am a little disappointed that they've focused on RX more considering it's a dying sport (sadly) but I am looking forward to the DLC packs to remedy that.

I do think it's very unfortunate that the publications that follow it are just trying to find some clickbait to flame it. I found a review of an animated movie about HP Lovecraft going on a buddy adventure and the title was something about calling Lovecraft a racist, which I mean really he was, but still when you are reviewing a direct to dvd movie and that's your opener you suck.

Part of me thinks that they're going to do Salvage like you have a giant magnet or something that sucks stuff up into the cargo bay which is why they haven't cranked it out. You could be totally right that they're just not doing it until the Vulture or the persistent universe is really persistent.

My take on AtV is about the same. I used to watch all of them, and every Loremakers Guide, and I did watch the language tutorials because I thought that was a really neat concept but it seems that their media is kinda taking a drop, but that could also be because they did sink a lot of cash into their media outlets which likely added to the overall cost of the project, and thus required more donations. Just remember when they brought up charging for digital tickets to Citizen Con and how poorly that went. I think everyone was wrong in being so mad.

I've also had a hard time following things on Spectrum because all of the posts are just superfluous crap nowadays with minimal real input. I still browse the RP threads because at least I know I'm not trying to find intelligent discussion there.

@squigiliwams:I'm with you. I've paid for the $10/m subscription for a few years now because I did get it for free (With a Mustang Omega) when I got a Radeon 280oc. I'm fine with not having that 10 bucks a month though - but I do have like 700k+ REC which I can't possibly spend.

@spacegg: Yeah man, I was hoping to see more regarding salvage. I assume it'll eventually be implemented considering they have the mining module implemented. Salvage is just mining with variable sites, yield and types.

Ah yes! That is true! I haven't watched many of those recently, been super busy however I like that CIG is being as transparent as possible outside of publishing financial reports which people seem to think they're entitled to - they're not btw.

Also on the note of how I am playing, most of my Org does the same thing which is nice because we all get to experience that together.

My thing is I don't want to burn a ton of time into a game for it to not be counted for my progress or for what I've done to change. I don't want to play it and be tired of it when new content comes along. Usually I play for a few hours before and after major patches to experience what's new and compare the changes to give myself an idea of how it's progressing.

@reap3r160: Yeah and I think that's completely fair at this time, you can't be certain you wouldn't buy it but it's had a lot of information come out that leaves a sour taste in the mouth of onlookers and contributors alike.

Dead Cells is a good early access purchase, that one feels honest and has a lot of replayability. I was gifted it this steam sale and I am quite impressed with it. I think that there are exceptions to the "Early Access is a Scam" rule but I have had a lisa simpson chalkboard meme and a change my mind guy meme on my home computer that I post all the time when someone prompts me to buy an Early Access game.

@reap3r160: Your argument is a well stated and valid point that I entirely agree with. I do my best to defend the game but that's primarily because I do want it to happen and I would hope that some supportive comments would help in the event someone working on it reads them and feels a shred of encouragement instead of just feeling like they're being flamed. A lot of people just fly off the handle unreasonably saying "this isn't going to happen or ever come out and they're a bunch of worthless crooks" or "all the devs are stupid to be investing their time in this blah blah blah". I see that sort of commenting a lot and I feel that's unfair to the people working on the project". I work in IT, it's a thankless job, and I've had employees at client sites who do nothing but shit talk us because they set expectations that are unrealistic or irrelevant (not to say that's specifically the case here) and when I hear those sorts of comments it makes me want to not do anything for them, rightfully so.

To add to this I think Early Access as an umbrella term (this includes crowd funded projects) is a bullshit thing to try and sell people. I do not buy early access titles anymore. I've been burned too many times by total shit products that just perpetually stay in EA as a means to produce shoddy work and get paid for it. Early Access is a huge scam in my opinion. The only one I've bought into and felt I got what I paid for is Star Citizen because I just wanted to float around in a space ship and shoot at other space ships, which I have done for enough time to validate my money put in. I equate my cost to entertainment value in respect to other games on average and the price of a movie ticket. A 20 dollar game with 4-8 hours of entertainment isn't a bad value to me anymore considering a movie is ~2 hours at the same cost.

Additionally this game suffers scope creep on such a huge scale it's basically a meme now. It surpasses what I feel is reasonable but I appreciate the desire to create those features and really do hope it happens, but I do lose hope occasionally until a major content patch.

Duke Nukem Forever was an insult to my wallet. There have been some bad titles over the years that I've played. I really do try my best to find something good to say about every game I play but that is one of the very very short list of games I can't say anything worthwhile that I enjoyed.

I felt that Final Fantasy XIII was a bit frustrating. It was on rails for a whole disc (I had it on the 360) and then I swap discs and start playing some more, it throws me onto an open world with no signs of story progression in sight and a 30 hour grind after my 30 hours already put in. I know jRPG's have a grind but that was just insulting.

Blizzard trademarked "soon" so they needed to find another way, so they just push dates back.

I am hoping Arena Commander will get more popular. I have an astronomical amount of REC from my subscription. Like....approaching a million REC. I can't spend it fast enough.
