Armchair lawyering on the internet. There's something you don't see every day. Oh wait. :-P

Besides which, Gabe was being Gabe. If you're going to get in internet arguments over hypothetical legalities at least make it for something that is actually, you know, done or legtimately in the works.

Anyways, everyone needs to Greenlight this:

Also it's on Desura, currently on sale for $2.99 and the developer has promised Steam keys to those who buy now if it gets Greenlit.

Yeah, I'm wanting it to be greenlit for an eventual bundle inclusion. If it has classic punchout game play it could actually be fun, but the novelty is the biggest draw.

My main concern about Beast Boxing is that storyline. A secret human boxer? I'm just saying, you would think the beasts would notice. Unless... It's actually a critique upon humanity, and in the end, we too, are just another beast. Just fighting to get to the top and beat the grand champion of the Ultra League.

The user metacritic scores were not kind though. Seems like the users disliked it way more than the critics which is usually a red flag for me.

Hey, does anybody with TDU2 experience know whether your profile information is stored locally or online? I'm thinking about picking up a Steam copy but I already have it through D2D (paid $10!!)--I'd like to be able to transfer my progress but I'm not sure whether that would work. Anybody have any ideas on this?

For those asking about the quality, I thought it was pretty good but another game where you really need a controller to do well.

I hope these shift code posts aren't getting annoying.

Not worth it in the slightest. Just join someone's game that owns it and you can play it, including being able to trigger the quests and get exp and rewards.
Unless they patched it out, anyways


I didn't know that! That's really cool, thanks a lot :applause:

The TDU2 launch was an unmitigated disaster with no one getting their retailer specific preorder bonuses, the casino and clubs being broken for the first couple of weeks, and a good amount of bugs. After a month or two, I stopped waiting for the panacea patch and moved on to other games. The locale was great, at the very least.

I didn't play it on launch or close to it b/c of the reviews - they were BRUTAL, for the most part.
Namely, the game got slammed for lacking features; Internet connection problems; bugs; broken quests and races; crazy physics for racing (especially when compared by many to TDU1); tough difficulty (especially when doing the License getting missions to start the game) [the tough difficulty on License getting races is still present, BTW]; coming w/ Securom Internet DRM activation; and other kinds of madness.

A lot of this got overhauled in numerous patches (like many of Eden's other games), before the DLC actually got released.
Eden Games has been known for releasing buggy/broken products [see Alone in the Dark (2008 Reboot)].

For $5, it'd be silly to pass this up. Last time I played it, I had a BLAST w/ it online. I really didn't deal w/ other online players much (since many were online and many were just doing the solo races and that stuff).
I just did the "solo" missions, races, and whatnot - for the most part.

It can be tough to get a MP race going, anyways - if anybody's actually even online playing this! Especially now, since the game's OLD.

If you have problems trying to connect online or dealing w/ online hackers/cheaters - just create another profile and put that profile in offline mode.
Playing offline, you'd just miss out on online players all over the game-world(s); and unable to do custom MP-based competitive races.
On the map, you'll find spots that are either SP-based (that's most spots) or are MP-based (which are lobbies, more or less). When offline, you can't do the MP stuff; only SP. When online, you can do both types of missions - up to you.
What the game probably should've did was let the MP spots on the map always be accessible and easy for Friends to contact each other and Quick-Travel to those spots to get a race going.

I do not know if TDU2 Steam-version comes w/ Securom DRM anymore, but if I was you - especially if that could be a factor for you and all (should be, I hate 3rd party DRM on Steam-versions) - you might want to look into it and check the Steam forums to see if it comes w/ it still.
Hopefully, they removed it. I don't know truly, though. No clue.
It's definitely worth looking into and asking around to those who actually bought it from Steam today.

EDIT:
I'm gonna check to see if online servers for game-playing are up. I'm gonna play this thing, if it is.

EDIT 2:
Yup, there's people playing, here & there - wonder if it's 'cause of the sales.
I'm on the Hawaii map here (you have to level-up enough to unlock this);
I wonder how things are in Ibiza (the starting map).

EDIT 3:
IMHO, this G4TV review (for X360 version) is spot on:
http://www.g4tv.com/...mited-2/review/

FTW or DNF?

Assigning a score to Test Drive Unlimited 2 was extremely difficult. The actual driving experience itself—the very thing that the entire game is based around—still feels stuck in second gear compared to refined racers like Gran Turismo 5, Forza Motorsport 5 and anything that Criterion touches. The UI is a burden to navigate, minor glitches plague the whole experience, and the cringe-worthy character animation and dialogue sabotage the cool that the rest of the game works so hard to establish.

But there’s simply nothing else like TDU2 out there. Or, rather, there are several games that capture aspects of TDU2—Burnout Paradise’s free-wheeling open rides through island environments, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit’s cops-and-robbers chases, Gran Turismo 5’s endless collect-a-thon—but nothing puts them together into one overly ambitious package the way TDU2 does. It might not be the best racing game out there, but by god, it’s the biggest.

And because TDU2 isn’t a sim-heavy gearhead tunefest, it’s much more likely to attract that more casual following that it will need to really maximize its stellar social aspects. Hardcore racing enthusiasts will gripe about the floaty handling that makes even the most precision-engineered supercar feel like a Chevy Impala. But those who just want to pick up and play a racing game will delight in the flash and spectacle of the cars and environments, not to mention the absurd cartwheels that accompany even the most minor crashes.

For all of TDU2’s faults, none of them are severe enough to ruin the experience. And for all of its hokey weirdness, there’s a strange charm about it that will keep you coming back for more. It’s a game you’ll want to like, and if you can approach it on its own terms and enjoy it for what it is, you won’t find that hard to do.

I'm assuming it's the same problem people with the Ravaged Beta had. If Ravaged gets installed in some full form and then you lose your rights it reverts to the Demo version, but stays in your steam library indefinitely and has the label of the real game.

You have to ask steam support to remove it for you.

Oahu, which is one of the game-world maps in TDU1's map (Hawaii).

Seriously this game is RIDICULOUSLY HUGE, in sheer size. You have Ibiza and Oahu in TDU2 - which are BOTH HUGE themselves. Hell, Ibiza itself is huge; nevermind not even getting to Oahu!

If you actually do like it, you'll keep coming back for more - b/c this game has just SO MUCH TO DO. It's a racing & driving MMO, more or less. It can be quite addicting.

Sure - the racing, physics, and handling are nowhere as great as many of its competitors (Burnout series and NFS series); but the game just does so much. It's hard to ignore how much this game has going on - and that it does it well, too.

The game has a steep learning curve and a half. This is what might really turn people off; especially when trying to get your License for whatever style car you want to drive, in the very beginning. You have to do this, before you can really do any race competitions. Especially early on, cars handle like garbage; especially low-level stuff. They don't handle well, until you get better cars and/or win some races, do some missions, or explore the game-world; up to you how you want to play this out. Not until you get better cars and equipment - you might not want to play super-aggressive on turns, speeding, sliding, & shifting until you get MUCH better cars - or you might as well just basically restart your race or mission.

EDIT:
Here's another fair review for TDU2 (for X360) - from Kevin Van Ord (who was filling in for Jane Douglas):
