  1. If you haven't already heard, Wolcen just dropped a huge 1GB content patch yesterday (6/24/2019). They added a lot of good stuff, and they are really moving along in the development path. If you haven't heard of "Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem" before, it is an Action RPG similar to Diablo III that is being developed for Steam by Wolcen Studios. On a side note, it is on sale this week for 20% off! https://store.steampowered.com/app/424370/Wolcen_Lords_of_Mayhem/

    City of Heroes

    I'm not sure if you guys have played on the Villain side, but if you do - create your characters on the Indomitable server. I have some RL friends that restarted our old Supergroup, WWE (World Wide Evil). They are already running the endgame raids, and they have a number of people who are willing to powerlevel new players so they can get to the endgame quicker. City of Heroes / Villains was a semi-grindy game for leveling 1-50 in PvE... The endgame raids and PvP are where it really shined. I have a level 40 Electric / Kinetic Corruptor who is my main... Specializes in support buffs, heals, and then AOE DPS. I themed him as an evil version of The Flash. I also have a Darkness / Fiery Dominator that specializes in CC and DPS. Good times!
  3. I played it a bit as well. It seemed like a decent game, but the devs have a long way to go yet. There was also a round of layoffs recently amongst their game developer staff. https://kotaku.com/amazon-lays-off-dozens-of-game-developers-during-e3-1835523460 If they can keep rolling out new content and iron out the bugs, they have a shot at getting this one off the ground.
  4. I would assume so... I don't know why we wouldn't keep it going. Also, welcome back to the forums, slacker!
  5. Well, after looking into it - Origin Premiere definitely looks worth it. It is great way to try the games without having to buy them individually. Since it gives me access to dozens of games I want to play, I'll be hooked for the forseeable future. I'll try and give Anthem a try tonight.
  6. I just enrolled in Premiere so I could try out Anthem... But holy shit, it includes a lot more games than I expected. Without buying them I can play all the Star Wars games (including Battlefront 2), the FIFA games (2016-2019), the Battlefield games, the Mass Effect games, the Dragon Age games, The Darksiders games... I mean, the list goes on and on. It also looks like they are getting games added in there like They Are Billions, which I've wanted to play on Steam but it never goes low enough on sale to justify it. I didn't think much of Origin prior to today, but I'm rather excited with the 100+ games I just got access to. Even if I don't own the games, $15 is well worth the cost to play whatever game I want to play in that library.
  7. I was really super excited for this one originally, but then I lost interest after mixed reviews... I'm just curious, for those of you who have been playing it since it officially "launched", what do you think so far? The more detail the better!
  8. If this works for you, I know a couple Nigerian Princes that would love your support!

  11. Good stuff. Wasn't there a taming rebalance that was originally part of this patch? I didn't see it, so either it came out in an earlier patch or it may have been delayed.
  12. What do you guys think? Legit? Or a bug?
  13. Jumping onto the Open-World Survival genre is another new game - Population Zero. I'm going to keep my expectations relatively low at this point, as the developer (Enplex Games) is a small Russian company. I've never head of this company, so we shall see where this one goes... I have at least applied to get into the Alpha testing. https://pzonline.com/en/about-game/
  14. Here are some of my screenshots so far, including a bunch from our long sea voyage last night. The maiden voyage of the SS Skoldjr was a success! We had a large group of COTP members with us, and we found numerous treasure troves (with big exp boosts). We even survived hurricanes and Ships of the Damned!

    Personally I am all for a delay if it means they will release a better quality game into Early Access (EA). If they were to drop it on the originally planned date and it had major issues, people would go ballistic and tear the game to shreds in their reviews. IMO the devs are smart to avoid that and wait until they are confident that the game will be solid for EA. Say what you will about the "Early Access" world these days, but it has clearly become the best way to go for developers. The main difference between "Alpha/Beta Testing" and EA is that there is usually a cost associated with it. However, the funds from EA are funneled mostly into the development of the game. It allows players to try the games before release and contribute to the development process. Ark has been wildly successful despite all of the naysayers, because at the end of the day they delivered a solid game. Do I wish the DLC's were free? Yes, absolutely. At the same time though; I understand why they needed to do it that way. Developing games is extremely expensive at this scale. Think about this: the people who complain about DLC costs are the same people who spent $15 (or more) every single month for MMORPG's back in the day. How many hundreds or thousands of dollars did you spend on subscriptions while playing games like WoW, EQ, etc.? Personally, I'm completely ok with paying ~$30 for Atlas when it comes out. It doesn't bother me one bit, because I know that I'm paying towards the development of what I hope will be another amazing game. I've put more time into playing Ark than I have in hundreds of other Steam games combined. To me, that makes the $29.99 (or whatever I paid for Ark back in the days of their EA) absolutely worth it. Same goes for all the DLC. Some were definitely better than others, but each time it renewed my interest in Ark when I would have otherwise been burned out on the game.
  21. Shit, sorry to hear that man. Lupus certainly is no cakewalk, but hopefully the meds available these days will help.
