It's a demo. I uninstalled it and it disappeared from my library just fine.



My Ravaged Beta key got converted to a free copy 8-)

I tried. I bought it on GG when it glitched and Steam won't let me redeem that key because I already own it.

Gotta love spinning out of control while taking a turn at 20mph in a video game when I can take one at 40 in my shitty Maxima with bald tires in real life.


LOL!

Don't drive too aggressive in TDU2 early on. Its physics and handling is nowhere as good as most other racers (i.e. NFS series and Burnout series). It's also a much harder game than many of the others, as well.

Since you really do live in Hawaii - I guess you got an unfair advantage, when you unlock the huge Oahu map. :P

I got my copy from Tsel in the Steam thread for a couple of bucks and I already don't regret it.

Everybody needs to play this.


The best part about Rogue Warrior is that it's over in 2 hours or so, so you feel about as dirty as watching a bad movie. I say go through the whole game only meleeing people to see the ridiculous kill scenes.

Worst part about the achievements is that the 3 difficulty modes are tracked separately.

I played through on hard and would have to play through the campaign two more times to get the campaign achievements.

Also, lots of multiplayer achievements with what I assume is no active community.

Wait a minute. I thought I'd play through on Hard to save me time. You mean to say I would've picked up the same number of achievements on Easy?! :bomb:

Wasn't there talk of an upcoming multiplayer night...? :D

Yes, which is why I played through the game on hard thinking "hey, if this catches on ironically as a multiplayer game of choice for a few weeks maybe I can mop these multiplayer achievements up, so maybe I should just get hard out of the way now so I don't have to play through a full campaign later! That's the ticket! You're brilliant! What a stunning specimen you are, with your great ideas about saving time in an attempt to s-rank one of the shoddiest high profile FPS releases in the last five years! If you aren't careful somebody is gonna sneak in in the night and open up your head and take that brain right out of you, because you should be off doing some seriously important shit with that thinker of a mind, I tell you what!" but alas, only one achievement for beating it on hard rather than all three.

My inner-monologue may or may not be that rambling and confidently self-loathing.

We'll see what its reaction is when I boot up the Rogue Warrior campaign for the 3rd time.

Yeah so did mine. I'd say this happened for me about a month ago.

Looks like mine is now too.

It used to be a demo that would never go away.

Maybe they just upgraded everyone.

That game's in bad shape, anyway.

I've played 35 minutes of Rogue Warrior, which was 2 missions. Tons of screen tearing, and headache inducing graphical glitches, but I can't wait to play more.

Here's a totally sweet-looking game on Greenlight & Kickstarter - Delver's Drop, a Zelda-style dungeon crawler. Vote for it!

I don't think so, but it's been this price before (and probably will be again).

So, uh, Asheskitty?



Sorry. Busy day. This is actually one that I don't own. I passed on it several times before due to the scathing reviews (and many mentions of wonky physics/handing). MysterD sold me on in it in August, but It hasn't hit $5 again until now. (It tends to hit $5, but it evaded the Xmas sales.)

So worth it.
Had a lot of fun, when Amazon DVG had it around that cheap, years back.


Awaiting the asheskitty verdict...



^_^ Thanks for the vote of confidence, however this is one I'll have to buy first. =D

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



I appreciate the notice. ;)

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.



Hmm, that could explain the unusually high hostility in the user reviews.

I didn't play it on launch or close to it b/c of the reviews - they were BRUTAL, for the most part.

Spoiler


Spoiler
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.
Spoiler



Thanks for that! I'm back to looking forward to it. Need to figure if I should snag it off Steam (convenience, maybe no securom) or Amazon ("warranty" coverage on activations).

Edit: Steam version has SecuROM 4 activation limit as well according to multiple TDU2-SPUF threads as well as this. Oh yeah, and the TDU2 page.

Edit2: Steam version has achieves. (I always like to look at achieve statistics.)

Edit3: Snagging this of Amazon for their "unlimited activations" policy. I have a habit of re-playing my old racers.

Gotta love spinning out of control while taking a turn at 20mph in a video game when I can take one at 40 in my shitty Maxima with bald tires in real life.



Yeah, it was comments like that that got me. FWD cars are really annoying to try and spin when you're used to RWD.

Spoiler
Don't drive too aggressive in TDU2 early on. Its physics and handling is nowhere as good as most other racers (i.e. NFS series and Burnout series). It's also a much harder game than many of the others, as well.

Now I'm really wondering how it compares to NFS Shift.

Was TDU2 cheaper before?



Not that I've ever seen. There are several price trackers in my sig.

While we're on the topic of TDU2, to be completely honest I kind of liked it, sure it may not have the most accurate handling in the world, but like MysterD was saying there is SO MUCH TO DO in this game. It really is like a driving MMO, you can buy lots of cars, participate in races, buy clothes for your avatar, buy houses, etc. Sometimes it's enjoyable enough driving around taking in the scenery. It may not be the best driving game out there but it sure as hell is worth $5, actually contemplating rebuying it on steam (bought it first on Amazon) for convenience. (and 'chieves. can't forget those 'chieves!)

On another, DON'T try to play this with KB+M. I'm betting some of the handling issues are from people who only played with KB+M. I started out with KB+M and didn't really like the game. Once I switched to my xbox controller it made a night and day difference.

Hey, don't worry about that activation limit, idiot. You can revoke activations! Now you can feel good about buying it! :D You're welcome.
