  1. this is a very encouraging article. its the first time i understand SECs philosophy to publishing games.
  2. a guy from spain made this game. it released a few days ago on PC/PS4. amazing game.
  3. this is exactly why most people regard micro-transactions as a dirty word and Activision's patent has just made it 100% more dirty. i can only hope bulkhead introduce micro-transactions with zero pay-2-win elements or pervasive RNG. there is no argument that can be put forward to justify the inclusion of non-cosmetic only micro-transactions now that we can see where its going to end up. Activision say this system hasn't been implemented in any games yet but i wouldn't trust them as far as i can throw them. i'm sure they've introduced it already to some degree and the patent is a refined form of something that already exists. it makes me sick to my stomach and fearful for the future of games if and when this shite trickles down to indie devs who are fighting for survival on a daily basis.
  4. When is the next beta?

    i take your point @Masser but if the CM goes quiet to work on a marketing strategy then surely you don't mention a price drop without alot of discussion and agreement behind it beforehand. it would have been wiser to say nothing about it until January. it's not as if anyone can buy the game now anyway so why say it now? surely it was to prime all the backers but, honestly, they've done a half-arsed job of it.
  5. When is the next beta?

    unfortunately, informative communication has been lacking. tweeting bits and pieces and the odd interview is great but should not be used as a substitute for more structured communication. example, there's clearly been massive changes to the pricing structure but all we've heard on that is from interviews. going dark is all well and good but what's the point of a community manager who's not communicating with the community? to be clear, i'm not looking for communication on the game and it's development but information around the game that we should reasonably expect to get more than just snippets on social media.

  7. Destiny 2 on PC

    if you are going to buy it i would suggest waiting until after they release the first dlc which will be around xmas. there's so much missing from the vanilla game they must have held content back to sell as dlc. remember, it is activision after all. if you're looking for a game to fill time before Battalion i highly recommend Titanfall 2 if you haven't already played it. it plays like Destiny's pvp but its 1000 times better and all of the dlc is absolutely free. the single player story is better than Destiny 2 as well.
  8. agreed, cosmetic only all the way. that way, the players that want micro-transactions can buy them and those that hate them can ignore them as they'll have no bearing on gameplay.
  9. Destiny 2 on PC

    Destiny 2 didn't just take out the grind. they took out all the RPG elements and all the progression mechanics that gave any sort of depth to gameplay, there's no endgame content and the story is as basic as a saturday morning x-men cartoon. the game isn't broken in any way like Destiny 1 was, it's just empty, unfulfilling and pointless. i played Destiny 2 one week and found myself asking why am i playing this game. i could not answer my own question.
  10. if you're on PC and tempted to find out what Destiny 2 is like let me save you the time and expense by saying don't buy it. Destiny 2 is like the christmas tree bauble. it's looks shiny and exciting and fun but inside it's hollow and empty. i played Destiny 1 for over 2 years and it had it faults and frustrations but Destiny 2 by comparison is a husk of a game. save your money and buy a better game.
  11. New map leaked?

    this is probably the business end of the development cycle when they just have to lock themselves away and get stuff done.
  12. New map leaked?

    feel free to speculate all you want. we have a 3 month void of nothingness to fill.
  13. Posted by Bulkhead Interactive (Creator) Hey everyone, We're going dark. Battalion's development is going even better than anticipated! We're incredibly proud of the amazing response that Battalion has received from our fans and new fans at exhibitions all over the world. But now its time for us to hammer it home. The team and I will be going dark. You won't be hearing from us for a while. But rest assured, Battalion has some massive announcements for both casual gamers; looking to relive that feeling of classic shooters and for competitive players; looking for a new challenge in Battalion's tournaments. Thanks for the amazing support over the last year, wish us luck, we're going to be working hard to bring home this incredible idea that I've been lucky enough to be a part of. Our goal was simple, revitalise the feeling of classic & old school shooters with all the benefits of a next gen game. My amazing team have put in the hours to make that happen and I can't wait to show you all in January. Thanks for everything. Joe Brammer
