News Editor at Polygon, loves his wife, his son, his puppies, the written word.
In case you’re interested:
Wow, apparently not related to the 85 game. That’s… interesting?
Perhaps one of my most played computer games in high school, mostly because I was so into Car Wars.
You’re breaking my heart!
We did not receive any press release.
Hey Oliver, thanks for the update. Just FYI, we have not received the press release.
I just updated our post to reflect that and to note that the originating site said initially that they were told after posting the news that it was under embargo.
Mass Effect didn’t satisfy my narrative itch. I didn’t like the way it delivered plot, so it’s probably not a good apples to apples comparison. By the time gunplay got around I was usually annoyed. :D
More serious response: It felt much more like Full Spectrum Warrior than Mass Effect to me. Put another way, I wasn’t a fan of Mass Effect, but I really enjoyed what I played of The Bureau.
An rpg? :D
OK, it’s speced out at just under $890. Seems like sub $800 would require a substantial drop on some front.
you and me both brother!
Heads up, the story has been significantly changed to reflect Patrice’s comments. He told Polygon that he was fired.
Thanks! I think that Microsoft ultimately doesn’t want to team much as much as they want to take over. So the early stages of PS4 and next Xbox may look similar, but I think the end state won’t.
Ho, man. This sounds pretty great. I hope it’s a lot like Wings of War.
OK take two:
CPU: i5 3570k $220
MOBO: ASUS P8Z77-V $115
Mem: G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB (2 4 gb) DDR 3 1866 $70
HDD: WD Blue 1 TB $66
Power: thermal take TR2 600w $30
CPU cooler: cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus $ 20
GPU: GTX 660Ti 2GB $275
Windows 7: $100
Thanks everyone for your help.
Any GPU suggestions that could trim this down to sub $800?
