Steam sales are no different to TV, instead of having 5 channels of shit, we now have hundreds of channels of shit, I was watching some episodes of Tour of Duty last night, and thinking why the fuck don't they have TV shows like this anymore, instead we have fucking rednecks digging for gold in the snow.

Anyhow, on topic, it's only $6 more than what it was when on Sale, if you're short on cash I can send you the $6 if you want ;p

I saw mirror's edge on sale for something ridiculously low and I thought "I should grab that, ah, but I have it on console." and I didn't buy it.

Then the mirror's edge 2 trailer came out and I remembered that I used to have mirror's edge, on my 360, which red ringed a long time ago. And then it wasn't on sale anymore. :(

It looks like WoW with a Sci Fi skin. Graphics look like garbage and combat is tab-targeted. I don't see this division lasting any longer than the GW2 one did. At least GW2 had engaging combat and good group-play mechanics
.

Way to stay positive :)

Yes graphics are not the most modern but i prefer depth of gameplay anyway. You have choice of tab targeting or fps modes, i switch between them based on what im doing. This is a sandbox game, GW2 was not, a closer comparison is Star Wars Galaxies (which is where some of the devs came from) and that game had me hooked for years.

How many games have we played that look like WoW and have had tab targeting?, how many games have we played that have had crappy graphics? Wurm ring a bell? Perpetuum?, while we are at it, how many divisions have we had that have lasted long?

At this point I tend to prefer MMOs with tab targeting because I'm not automatically fucked over by not living in the US.

Olek it's just the tight ass in me, it's just that I've seen it cheaper and now I don't want to buy it out of principle, wish there was someone at steam  I could bargain down

You can actually turn on focus targetting instead if you want a more fluid system. I'm a mêlée fighter and focus tar getting works really well as melee has alot of aoe attacks. So many ways to customize game play you would be silly to not try it on release. It is F2P after all.

I find the FPS mode better for combat in most situations also as the firearms have an arc, anything gets to the flank or rear and you can't fire on them, it's a lot easier to put the reticle on them in FPS mode, and I imagine the melee players will rear doing everything they can to get rear attacks on you.

not currently, playing the waiting game now for release but i personally love the game, if you ever played Star Wars Galaxies and enjoyed it then you will like repop also.

If you decide to jump in the pre-order / early access bandwagon, let me know and ill jump in and show you the ropes if you like.

$20 is purely the early access cost (and a few little toys for release day), will be free to play on release (with subscription to own housing etc).

Basically we jumped in and learned the ropes as it has a very steep learning curve, then backed off so as to not burn out before release.

Is it possible to troll people with stealth? Looking for another game with stealthy trolling like vanilla wow rogue

Assassination
The Assassination line is an enhancement for bladed weapons which allows you to perform deadly attacks if you are able to sneak up to an opponent from behind. Each of these abilities is positional and on a longer recharge time. They are designed to allow careful assassins to gain a significant advantage over NPCs or players if executed properly, but to only be usable once every few minutes. There is an entire line of missions aimed directly at this style of gameplay.

Disguise
Disguise involves the creation, detection and wearing of disguises. Disguises allow players to alter their appearance, mask their name, and to alter the way NPCs react to them. The top disguises even give you a chance to fake your faction to other players. Other players who suspect you of wearing a disguise can use the Reveal Disguise skill to force you out of the disguise.

Im tempted to give archeage another go minus the farming and wagons but couldnt get passed the authenticator probably for the best, I bet I could get my weapons done no problem now

I finally got around to YouTubing The Repopulation... IT LOOKS REALLY GOOD, I'm really considering buying it. However everything WILL be wiped at launch... That's the only thing that concerns me, I'm not really the type of person that does things twice and the thought of so much progress being lost at launch turns me off BIG TIME!

I agree with your reasoning, but to be honest, the game is very complex, and you may not want to be learning how to play at launch while everyone else is already onto it.
