  1. Star Citizen Alpha 3.0 at Gamescom 2017

    It was an absolute clusterf##k. A bunch of us watched it together live online and it was almost non-stop laughter. Most of us thought it would have some bugs and flaws, but none of us imagined it was going to that bad. I am soooo glad I had the sense not to back this back in 2012, I guess my Golden Ticket will go to waste
  2. Ready Or Not (SWATlike)

    I didnt say that Ubisoft would invest in this game, just that I dont care about how does as long as the game comes out as intended. Like a lot of folks I would love if they walked back R6 and GR to their original styles, but given the nature of the market and Ubisoft's not unreasonable desire to make some money, I think we can all agree that's not going to happen. In any case, I am glad to know the game has already progressed to some kind of beta state. I am looking forward to seeing how it pans out and supporting the game with my wallet if it turns out to be good. Roll on the public beta?
  3. Ready Or Not (SWATlike)

    I dont care who the investor is as long as it comes out how the developer intended. I am sure its all very fashionable to ###### on Ubisoft, EA, etc. but if it gets the game made and its good, that's all that really matters. TL:DR I hope its good
  4. Ghost Recon: Wild Lands

    Different markets entirely. A new game will normally sell for £39.99 for PC, but with places like Amazon, etc they can sell for less. Even then, a game that is expected to sell well wont go for less than £35 normally. Right now Amazon are selling the Deluxe edition of GR:Wildlands on PC for £39.99 (download code only), whilst on Steam its going for £54.99. So for this market £31.99 isnt bad
  5. Ghost Recon: Wild Lands

    I had a lot of fun with the demo (cough) I mean "open beta", but like you folks I played in on extreme with the HUD off. Its a different game played that way. I can see co-op being a lot of fun. My real hope is that the PC version gets modded to expand it into a more "realistic" Tacshooter. I guess we will see. I also managed to get the Deluxe edition from the Uplay store for £31.99 due to the 20% discount by spending some of my silly Uplay points. What can I say, as a Scotsman I love a bargain
  6. Hidden and Dangerous 1/2 are available for purchase again!

    Yeah, if somehow 2K Czech (who used to be Illusion Softworks) got to make it, and make it right.... well as I said, a guy can dream
  7. Hidden and Dangerous 1/2 are available for purchase again!

    Yas! You've got to love GOG for getting hold of these two gems Maybe one day we'll get another one? (yeah I know, but I can dream)
  8. Ghost Recon: Wild Lands

    I agree with you to be fair. I dont think the new GR is going to be anything like the old ones... but that the point isnt it? They are not trying to make it like the old ones. That ship has sailed! I can certainly see from the videos on this thread that the game has issues, but I also have a sneaking suspicion that, if it not horribly broken/buggy, that it might well be a good laugh playing co-op with a few like-minded people. I get that the majority here are upset that the Tactical shooter genre has be left for dead buy publishers, but the market has changed and I dont think its realistic to expect them to be making those kinds of games anymore. Isnt that why we are all supporting Blackfoot so that we can get the kind of game we all want? Anyway, it will be interesting to see what state GR is in when it comes out - day 1 patch anyone?
  9. SWAT 4 Game Download?

    Well I was just coming here to post about SWAT 4 on GOG but I see I was beaten to it. The gaming gods must be smiling on us
  10. Ghost Recon: Wild Lands

    Yeah good point Some companies seem more enlightened in regards to mods than others, and I agree the Ubi dont exactly have a great reputation in that regard. On the other hand this Ghost Recon seems to be relatively closer to the original games than their most recent efforts, so I am wondering if that suggests that Ubi might be changing direction a little? In any case, I will keep my eye on this one to see how it turns out.
  11. Ghost Recon: Wild Lands

    I thought that looked quite fun! Sure, its not "classic" GR but I like the direction they are trying out with this. I wonder if there will be much modding support on PC? If so I can see some really interesting mods coming out for this...
  12. Due Process (Rainbow Six Siege minus the gadgets)

    I agree on the surface it doesnt have anything in common. But if you read their blogs or the dev videos they talk extensively about the tactical aspects of the game. That is the core of what they are trying to do, a small scale CQB game where tactics and superior planning will win the day. Now obviously, its going for a different feel, its much faster and looser than the more realistic games like our beloved SWAT and R6 games, but its still a tactical game a heart, but with a different emphasis and style. YMMV
  13. New Metal Gear Game

    No Kojima = No sale. Without him its simply not Metal Gear. #######konami
  14. Due Process (Rainbow Six Siege minus the gadgets)

    Clearly not everyone is a fan I really like the strong visual design they are going with, it pretty effectively gives the game its own identity. Though if there was a "hidden" block-dudes mode I wouldn't object
  15. Due Process (Rainbow Six Siege minus the gadgets)

    I am still keeping an eye on this, hoping it lives up to the early potential it showed It's nice to see a game focusing so tightly on CQB tactics like this, looks like it will offer some fun, intense and (more importantly) tactical fire fights Here's hoping the Alpha comes soon
