Metro 2033 is pretty scary and I'm only a few hours into it.

Finally after a year absence I am back and active in Eve online! and good lord have things changed :lol:

This coming form someone who was active from 2007 until the aforementioned time. Now to learn what all has been changed since I last played haha.

If any of you guys haven't ever played Eve well... it can be fun but it's a huge time sink and has the largest learning curve of any game I have ever played.

Wait a sec... in the first chapter they scammed him at the travel agency, in the second chapter, they stole his bag at the beginning of the game... I wonder what the hell will they steal him in the third chapter, who cares.

Shenmue III will be so realistic, they will crawl out of the TV like Sadako from Ringu and steal all of your games and consoles.

Pic related regarding that learning curve, by the way.

Eve's one of those games I wish I could get into. I really, really do. One day I'll give it the time it deserves.

I know it's not an MMORPG, but you don't know what a learning curve is until you've played Dwarf Fortress. Learning to play it is nearly impossible, and it just keeps getting more complex as new versions come out.

This sums up the entire Dwarf Fortress experience quite nicely.

Since I have yet to play Bioshock Infinity, but I completed both first and second chapter, which one is better for you guys?

I never got around to Bioshock 2 but I'd say I'm equally fond of both Bioshock 1 and Infinite. I think the story's better in Infinite but I kind of like the atmosphere of Bioshock 1. Rapture has a terror to it that they don't bring to Infinite.




Respawn, the studio formed by the old Infinity Ward guys when they got fired by Activision for stupid bullshit, just had details on their new game leak via Game Informer releasing June's issue early on Android.


- Xbox One, PC
- Xbox 360 version developed by someone else
- Planned to target current gen, but realized that they couldn't run it
- Started to look into next gen and the answer they got from Microsoft intrigued them
- They said they needed to focus on fewer hardware. In the future they are open to more. They don't specify if it would be this project or another.
- Plan to use Microsoft's Cloud for dedicated servers and physics and AI calculations
- Spring 2014 Release Date
- In my opinion it visually looks pretty nice.
- First person shooter
- "Mech" and ground combat
- "Mech's" are called Titans.
- They want these Titans to feel fast. They can dodge etc.
- If you don't want to pilot the Titan you can have it follow you, killing people as it goes along.
- Player characters are called Pilots
- They are extremely agile. Can run on walls, multiple jumps.
- They can take down Titans. Jumping on them and shooting the "brain".
- You need to be cunning as a pilot. "Hit and fade" tactics is the term the game director uses.
- Pilots come equipped with a variety of weapons. Pistol, Assault Rifle, Anti-Titan Rocket Launcher, data knife used to hack AI characters into joining you.
- There are AI enemies on the maps.
- You survive longer than in COD. Making it more welcoming to newcomers.
- Source Engine. Building new engine = too much time.
- Source gives them 60 fps
- Rewrote aspects of it for next gen
- Article talks about the process of forming the team, being fired, prototyping ideas etc. I recommend reading it.
- Going for a District 9 or Blade Runner vibe.
- Integrate memorable single player moments into a multiplayer game.
- Storytelling style will be more Left 4 Dead.
- Humans segregated between Earth and frontier planets. Corporation trying to take the resources of these frontier people.


Not sold until I see it in action but I'm intrigued. These are the guys behind CoD1, 2, and 4, the latter one of my biggest time sinks on the 360 (Also they made MW2 but no one cares about that). Now they're making a mech game? Count me excited.

Maybe I'll miss that when I'll play Infinite.
BTW, this thread is reaching the 100th page, shall we make a new one?

Whoever makes a new thread should include a link to the Steam Group Thread in it. We don't really use the Group for anything but people are welcome to join to rep their EGF pride/shame/lust.

I liked both of them more than Infinite.

Infinite is linear to the max level design and weak enemies that rushdown, it really isn't all as good as it's hyped up to be, "good" story or not.

Yeah, Infinite is infinitely (haha) easier than Bioshock 1 and 2, as well as Bioshock's spiritual predecessor, System Shock. You don't need to conserve health items or ammo, you don't need to be careful with your upgrades or try to develop a specific playing style. If you're low on health you can just stand in cover while your shield regenerates and Elizabeth will pass you a large amount of health, salts or ammo.

It's definitely a great game so far, the graphics are really good too, which makes the homo novus disgusting, combined with the surprise element and how shadows are used I can only play the game for at most a few hours, it's the same with Amnesia. I'm a scaredy cat :sniffle:
