Re: Star Wars Battlefront

Tried again last night to play with a Mate...no servers again... The only way we can play together is doing the co-op missions...and one can only do them so many times before deciding to go back to Battlefield or Insurgency or other...

Re: Star Wars Battlefront

I was hoping to see some detail about them actually fixing that glaring issue where you can no longer find any servers...especially when playing with friends...or allowing servers to start with only 6 people rather than making people wait for 20 players...maybe adding a vote system so hacking fookta...

Re: Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak

Anyone played it yet? Very Homeworldish, as expected, which is what I like! Visuals are very nice and the landscapes look pretty damn good! (especially some of the sand storm effects) Within the soundscape I'm noticing some familiar sounds from the other Homeworld games. Music is also very similar t...

Re: HTC & Valve’s Vive VR headset pre-orders begin Feb. 29

My understanding is that the Vive will be a "premium VR experience" and is based around the concept of using the room you're in rather than just a sitting down experience. With this in mind I'm speculating it'll be more pricey than the rift.

Re: Tabletop Gaming

I like these games due to their simplicity and the fact you can play them drunk and have a good laugh, maybe even offend the odd person or two. That said if I'm not drunk(or only having a couple of bevvies) then I prefer games with more depth. I shall have a look at the entries on your list! I notic...

Re: System Shock 3 is really happening: SHODAN is back

Now it's confirmed there's Devs from the original studio, the outlook could be very good for a sequel in the same vain as the original two, rather than dumbing down the core game play mechanics to make it 'friendly' for the modern COD player base. Highly interested in seeing what the VR question is ...

Re: Star Wars Battlefront

Yes, it's sad to play a fresh new Star Wars game and 2 weeks after release you have to sit at a main menu for 10-15 minutes jumping in and out of empty servers hoping you'll get into a populated one. I agree with you Ralph, I ain't touching DLC until they fix this by adding a server browser and more...
