Why is there no Artifact thread? Also, what's this rumor I'm hearing? NO TRADING at launch? Isn't the whole point of this game not being free and not having any free card that your assets can be traded and sold? You can answer me in the Artifact thread (!).

There's no reason to have an artifact thread yet? Anyway, yeah. No trading at launch. I don't even know how to properly express how weird that is either. It's a decision that makes no sense.

Digging deeper, it seems that you can sell and buy cards from the marketplace, you just can't decide who to sell them to. So you can't give your friends your unused cards and can't sell to a specific person, apparently to prevent third party bullshit, which leaves us the customers with first party bullshit.

I have to imagine they'll break on that. Or build in a trading solution. They don't have much of a choice.

They are going to add in phantom draft, so that should appease the mob a bit.

Don't really care about the trading thing since it's pretty rare to be directly trading cards, and not just buying/selling.  I'm sure they'll build in a trading system eventually but can understand why its not a priority for launch.

We discussed Crossout a long time ago. It's an Auto Assault (!) inspired arena game from the War Thunder people. It has a lot of those "MMORPGy" things common to World of Tanks and the likes. Also, it has a very, very cool building system. You can assemble cars, tanks, trucks, in unthinkable ways, and they look good.
But I bring it up today cause they added today a PvE co-op open region to go explore and adventure in, do quests and so on. It scales with your level. This game has issues (cheaters, unbalanced builds, silly "gas/energy" stuff) but it's a gem.

That looks ... fast.  Like the mechs don't lfeel like multi-ton machines at all.

Never played it, but is that how MWO feels?

No, seems faster than MWO.  Same engine though, so could be sped up for the trailer.

One thing that bugs me, as an MWO veteran, is the destructible buildings ;  if you have to keep any of them intact for a contract, you're gonna be fucked.   why so serious?

Might have a big impact on your strategic design making--if you have buildings to protect, you need to do whatever you can to engage elsewhere no matter what, even if at a disavantage. But in any conflict where that's the priority, you have to be able to constrain where the enemy deploys or it's pointless. If I'm meant to protect an asset but the enemy can drop right next to the asset, I'm auto-screwed in real life or a game.

There's a fair amount of gameplay videos on youtube, but my favorite MWO vid is this video advertising one of their Hero Premium Mechs, The "Misery" Stalker Assault Mech.

After FC5, I'm ready. That game was badass. Though I'm biased due to my experience with that one redneck soldier girl who I kept in my truck's turret because her running commentary was fucking amazing.

I mean, just thinking about it I kinda want to fire it up again just to hear her yell while she shoots... well, everything.

So, three "superclassic" games have recently come out in their "remastered" version:

R-Type & R-Type II :

Bitmap Brothers' GODS:

Last but not least....FLASHBACK (DOS version, not the Amiga one; for now only on GOG, should be on Steam in the next few weeks):

(the first two games are not available on GOG)

There is a deck that milled the fuck out of me in Arena involving discards for every card my opponent drew. It was a right pisser so I just conceded and moved on.

See, here's the thing about Psychic Corrosion and Patient rebuilding (the deck you probably fought) :

It's beatable and can be fun and is not bullshit.  One guy milled 40 cards out of me at 1 life to win in a scrape that must have been exciting for both of us.  I doffed my cap to the motherfucker, even as I swore to the heavens.

However, having a card that says 'Take another turn' that you can replay and replay, stopping the other player from even playing a turn ?

THAT'S SOME FUCKING BULLSHIT.

So, you know, I was a little annoyed.

I also got royally raped by a deck that used Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive to make 4 Rat Colony that were 5/1 unblockable and killed me in 1 turn. I had to tip my cap to that one.
