Well, at least they let you continue playing it. Most companies now seem to think it's okay to wipe your rights away completely.

I doubt many games resulted in the deaths of as many keyboards as this one's shit jump mechanics. Then again, would there have been a Diablo without an Ultima 8? And how terrible would Diablo have been with jumping puzzles?

I didn't get a real PC until 1996, and having only played up to U6, I bought U8 soon after getting the PC. Didn't care for the combat or movement, but I loved the isometric viewpoint and the world detail. I think that was the game's only real good point, IMO.

But then Diablo came out and any advancements U8 made looked silly by comparision.

They also have a clause stating "Mods must be distributed for free, period." Shouldn't the internet at large be kissing their feet today?Oh, my bad, I forgot positive things are completely uninteresting to the PC gaming community.

Maybe the PC gaming community is playing the game and hasn't read yet another lengthy EULA yet. And the "internet at large" is hardly the same as the "PC gaming community". Sheesh... false cause fallacy much?

Edit: Or, were you just being cheeky?

It's because PC gamers are smart enough to not suddenly welcome an enemy with open arms because they bent over and kissed our toes once. No, it's not "what you've done for us lately", it more like "On average, are you doing good stuff for us?"

That's why everyone is hating on Valve. Me too, actually. I've decided to go with GOG/Desura at this point. All my RPGs were on GOG anyway.

Couldn't find a single good MMORPG set in the fantasy theme yet in all the choices out there. Its kind of depressing.

You should check out Neverwinter. The combat is not deep but it's not anywhere near as bad as most MMO's. I found the game tolerable enough to go through most of the content.

http://www.arcgames.com/en/games/neverwinter

I played Neverwinter up to about level 17 or so on PC. Was okay...but the game locks so much stuff behind paywalls. It dangles level-up awards in front of you and teases you with them hoping you'll fork over cash to be able to open items in your inventory. It's awfully sneaky.

I've heard that at higher levels it's impossible to get anywhere without spending large amounts of cash due to the limitations placed on crafting.

I have hope, since I'm a huge Goldbox game nerd with a collection of the original disks/boxes/wheels...but to be completely honest, I'm a bit disappointed in some respects.

I won't nitpick the video because it's alpha footage, and we all know that'll change. My problem is that they've already talked about how your characters are all pre-made and that they start a few levels in, so you can't control their stats from level 1. A small gripe, I know, but it makes me think this isn't going to be the deep CRPG stat-fest that Divinity was.

But, like I said, I'll follow it and give them a buck. We'll see where it goes.

I never thought much about these games, until I saw a board for it where people were writing 12 page long examinations of the game's plot and theories about it.

I promptly closed my browser, took a drink and shook my head.

Whatever.

Yes, because anything that doesn't portray anyone in a positive light must obviously be a distortion. Why the fuck are these assholes even playing games, or at least games targeted to white males to begin with? I don't watch soap operas, do you hear me bitching about they exclude men as a target audience? And women in porn are victims? They control the fucking industry! And at the end of the day it's fantasy. It's all just pretend. Only really stupid people don't grasp that simple fact. It's the reason we don't go around dropping anvils on people after watching Bugs Bunny cartoons. If you can't differentiate fantasy versus reality then the medium and its content aren't the problem.

And lastly, who the fuck is she to dictate terms? If this is so viable and there's such a market for it then shut up and prove it. Go make these social-justice games and see how well they do. Stop whining about it and prove it. These are the worst sorts of assholes. As much as they go on about equality and freedom, and yada yada yada, they're the ones engaging in discrimination, censorship, etc. They're the biggest fucking hypocrites there are. Freedom doesn't mean being free from being offended. That's what a tolerant society is, you don't have to like it, but you do have to tolerate it.

So much truth and common sense in one post.

I'm just screenshotting this and returning to it from time to time to remind myself that intelligence still exists on the net.

And no, this isn't sarcasm.

Someone call Tom Hall and let him know about this. The sequel must be made.

Is Tom ok? Last I heard he had a heart attack. Would love to see him make Ananchronox 2.

Anthony Burch is a nutjob. Anyone ever look into this guy?

Yeah, I have no idea why everyone here is giving him such praise. I must be following a different Burch on twitter, I guess.

Didn't the first one come out just about a year ago?

By this time next year, they should be announcing the 6th game.

Someone needs to research a bit. then again, you only have 87 posts and look what they've all been on. Shill much, buddy?

That CP thing on 8chan? You have it completely wrong. There was an effort by Anti-GamerGate folks to upload CP images to the site and then spam CloudFlare with reporting requests.

You linked rational Wiki. That's funny.

Yup, great turn based RPG's. Good story.
Graphics isn't great, but who cares?

I care. They don't need to be Unreal 4 engine pretty, but they haven't changed at all. At least he could move to Unity and make them something other than fugly.

Same here. I actually have quite a few of Vogel's games, but the last one I bought was in 2008. Nowadays, it just doesn't work anymore. With Unity producing some really good turn based RPGs (Shadowrun, Wasteland 2), I don't see any excuse as to why he can't fork out the money and make something that looks less 1990-ish.

I mean, I get it, some dig this style. I did once too, when I was actually *in* the 90s. He has too much worthy competition now. Divinity OS and Wasteland 2 proved that we can have the same depth but also have the visuals to match it.

I'm really just spoiled by the turn based games we have now, I guess. Though right now, Vogel's games look like crap compared to them.

In case anyone got interested from the mention of Legacy of Kain, this game has absolutely nothing to do with the series.

It actually does, it's just online only PVP only arena crap.

How can this game just now be on Kickstarter? Our site covered it a year ago. It's old as old can get. Odd.

Yeah, I really doubt "korea" is attacking them. Korea is too busy trying to keep warm while their leader stuffs his face and jerks it to granny porn.
