Re: What games are you looking forward to?

I never even knew that existed!  This is another one I will be getting, love Age of Empires.

 

I've still not got Sim City yet and I don't know if it's worth it, heard very mixed reviews and also it's rather expensive.

Re: What games are you looking forward to?

All the user reviews are protest votes against the always online - especially considering, as is typical for release week of all online games, they didn't have enough servers.

As for the critic reviews, the ones that reviewed it pre-release (when the servers worked) all scored it high.

Those that have reviewd the version we are playing and have scored low, if you read them, they all like the game - just not the fact the servers are broken.

So I would imagine that by next week once they have the servers under control it will be great.  It's pretty much the same as Diablo 3's release.

 

Gamespots review summary sums it up well: "SimCity (the game) isn't the pinnacle of the series, but it's super fun. SimCity (the service) is a disaster. What you get out of the package as a whole rests solely on how many flaming hoops you're willing to jump through before arriving at your just reward."

 

It is very expensive though in the UK compared to most of our games.  I managed to get a pre-order for £29 which was cheap for this but is still more than I think I've ever spent on a game!  If you haven't bought it already - you may as well wait until its fixed!

 

As for Age of Empires, there have been rumours about it for a week or so: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=517122

I used to play that game for hours so its now on my wishlist!

I have to say, they've done a lot better with the EU launch.  They've added 3 more servers (from 4 to 7) since last night!

 

[edit]

I managed to play half an hour before a server disconnect.  I've not been on since. Smiley Indifferent

Tides of Numenara, by inExile... It reminds me so much of my old favorites Torment and Fallout that I am sorely tempted to jump on the Kickstarter wagon. Smiley Happy

Wow!  They had no trouble getting funded! Looking forward to this seeing as how Planescape passed me by.

I just read that EA are going to give everyone that bought SimCity a free game.  Not sure what yet.  But I'll laugh if it's SimCity IV.

Re: What games are you looking forward to?

I am loving Simcity here at the moment too!  It's a dangerous game because I always get so addicted.
