News Comments > Void Destroyer Released
3. Re: Void Destroyer Released Jan 22, 2015, 22:20 Wolfox
 
I did a good while ago, and it showed lots of promise. I gotta try the release version, though.

One thing I can say, though, is that the dev made a LOT of patches, many of them because of player feedback, so if anything, he's definitely worth supporting.

Anyway, I'll reinstall the game and try it again and share my impressions when I can.

2. Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Going F2P in March Jan 21, 2015, 12:07 Wolfox
 
It doesn't seem F2P, but a Buy-to-play model similar to Guild Wars 2, from what I've read. But I guess we'll know for sure in March.

Wait, is it Almost Human or Human Element, Blue?

Edit: and it's fixed. Cheers!

Fully agree. Can't they leave IPs alone, especially those that had concrete and satisfying closure

Considering that Highlander 2 exists, I guess the answer is "no".

I played the original Battlecruiser 3000 or whatever it was called back in the day. It was was allright.

I did too. It had numerous technical and design issues, but I still admire its ambition. I'd certainly like to see a game that fully realized the ideas that BC3000AD tried to implement (and mostly failed for various reasons).

I'll keep an eye on Universal Combat Advanced. I haven't tried the Universal Combat series, but I might try this one if the price is right.

That is absolutely awesome.

Note: (Voyager 2 is) 2.1 million seconds away from Sol.

That should be light-seconds. Seconds is not a measure of distance.

Actually, "seconds" is shorthand for light-seconds in Elite Dangerous slang. Yes, there is such a thing.

I just started on Starpoint Gemini 2. Man, it's been a long time since I played a space game. I was really stoked for ED too until the ODRM fiasco. And seeing as SC will probably be stuck in development hell/perpetual fundraising forever what else is there?

try this?
or
maybe?

And keep a close eye on this one. Or download this free Space Engine and explore our known universe. Or this NextGen/Old-School game.

Just to add to your excellent list, there's also Limit Theory.

Not for me, but if you are a commercial plane fan/virtual pilot, there isnt anything else.

Well, there's Prepar3d by Lockheed Martin (which is compatible with most payware for FSX, it seems), and X-Plane 10, which is already available on Steam. But yeah, that's pretty much it for "civilian" flight sims.

Despite some negative reviews, I thought Origins was excellent.

For me, Origins had moments of brilliance, but quite a few weird and clumsy design choices, along with somewhat sloppy execution. But I played it to the end, and I certainly don't regret playing it, even if I find it hard to recommend.

I loved Asylum. I really liked City. Despite its flaws, I really liked certain moments in Origins. But I'm just not feeling Arkham Knight so far. The focus on the Batmobile seems so weird to me.

Its Ciri, the white haired woman no doubt. Yennefer is also in the game, alluded to in both Witcher 1 and Witcher 2. In Witcher 1, which I beat last month, there is a tale you can be told about Ciri (also known as "cirilla"), she's an important character in the novels as well.

Cirilla is actually her proper given name, Ciri being a "short name" of sorts (like Bill is to William).

And as far as her importance goes... well, most of the fourth book (Time of Contempt) follows her, not Geralt, so you can imagine how important she is. She's a HUGE deal.

I'm seeing a lot of hate out there for the lightsaber, but I thought it was pretty cool. I especially like the effect of the light shooting out like an acetylene flame.

Oh, it looks really cool. It just doesn't make any sense, for many different reasons (possibility of harm to the wielder, no effective protection for the hand, weird positioning in an edgeless, "cut-any-direction" weightless blade, and so on and so forth). But it does look cool.

4. Re: The Witcher Adventure Game Released Nov 28, 2014, 13:30 Wolfox
 
I got it and gave it a try yesterday, but I'm still very confused. The introduction is barely enough to understand the rules, but I found more tutorials in-game, so I'll go through them and try again. It seems interesting, though, and it has lots of fan-service (in locations, characters and events) for fans of the games and books.

But I'd really like a "save game" ability, since there's none. That's a major oversight.

Star Wars: Force Awakens.

1. You could put a static picture of poop to John Williams theme, and I'd still get excited.

2. There are some cool scenes there. This is definitely original trilogy tech, which is awesome. Not sure I like that soccer ball R2 unit though.

3. Doesn't give a clue about the plot. Maybe that's a good thing? I'll probably try and avoid anymore trailers until this comes out.

4. The Phantom Menace also had an awesome trailer, and we all know how that turned out.

5. Where are the lens flares?

1. Fair enough.

2. The X-Wing scene was pretty cool, but that cross-shaped lightsaber is beyond stupid.

3. While that's true, I think Disney will mostly keep the main "threads" in the extended universe. Therefore, it's probably about the reestablishment of the Jedi Order, and the resurgence of the Sith. By the way, I wonder if that girl in the USB-drive-like vehicle is Mara Jade or maybe Jaina Solo.

4. No comments. It still hurts.

5. In the Millenium Falcon "loop", there's a quite prominent lens flare for a bit. You don't think JJ Binks Abrams would forget that, right?

Is Rome 2 worth playing now? I can get it for less than US$ 10 right now on Nuuvem (though it's region locked, so people outside of Brazil can't), which makes it considerably cheaper than even the 75% off price on Steam.

So, is it good now that it got a ton of patches?

So far it's pretty meh. Controllers have to be mapped unlike ALL previous Lego games.

Sorta disappointed after how awesome Lego Marvel and Lego The Movie were.

I just played a bit and it never asked for mapping or anything. It simply recognized my wired X360 controller and worked out of the box, just like Star Wars 3 and Marvel Heroes (I skipped Lego The Movie).

I've heard it has indeed problems recognizing controllers, though, so you're definitely not the only one.

Say what you want, but anything would be better than "The Gungan Jedi Master".

Or who knows, that might be the subtitle for Episode IX. Less likely than under George Lucas, but still not too unlikely.

I wonder what's up with their Cyberpunk game.

It was in pre-production last year. Realistically, I think we're talking about a release in 2016, perhaps even 2017. We'll see.

Why is no one talking about video games and sleep apnea?

It's not really controversial, is it?

In other times, we would. And probably mocking someone in the process. I miss those times.
