I agree with the writing, nobody seems to mention it. I ended up skipping entire paragraphs of text because they were so dull. Seems like a fun game if only they had a better writer to keep me interested in its content.

I'm looking forward to more serious RPG's like Wasteland 2 / Pillars / Torment

The other 85% is DLC.

Pretty sure they misjudged the demand here. I care a tiny bit about drm free movies. Back when you had to hack a dvd to play it on linux I cared a bit more. I hate what the drm does to the hardware of the film landscape a lot more than from the software side.

On the other hand, I've mostly given into the subscription model for movies+tv. Just out of convenience. I don't really care to own it. I've already watched a lot of these on netflix. I can see very few movies that I would want to own this way, but the prices aren't bad in general, pretty comparable to other digital film purchases.

But it just seems like a bad fit all around.

I think it would be huge if somebody could pull this off with theatrical movies and offer a choice of formats and qualities.

These guys are clueless. Just finish and ship the damn game and get that crap out later.

That crap is what we backers committed for - it wouldn't be fair to make us wait.

I fear this game is going to feel lifeless for us single player space sim fans. Procedural content is seen as such an amazing thing - the ability to mimick the size of a real universe - I would rather see a smaller hand made universe with 20-30 planets/systems then this. I think it will be a novel game for awhile, and once we are used to the mechanics it will feel like an empty shell.

I haven't played it, I'm waiting for final release, so I can't say for sure. The mechanics look impressive. I just hope that if what I say is true, someone can take the engine and do something special with it.

This game hasn't changed much lately. At this rate it will be finished in 5 years or so.

I'm holding off on Divinity, they are still adding features to it. Apparently we are getting a henchmen interaction patch next week - I know they will only add more features and fix some of the complaints people have with the UI. I'm going to give it a go in 4-6 months.

Mainstream gaming media has forsaken this game - glad to see it's doing well without their support.

This is supposed to be like JA2, not that other crap they released under the JA name.

With that said, I'm not getting my hopes up. They are taking a light-hearted approach to the characters and story which definitely does not fit the style of JA2, and the devs themselves don't have much experience. Also it looks like a cartoon...so far I'm not liking what I see.

So is it true that everything (legionaries/sets) that drops binds to your characters so essentially there is no player to player trading anymore?

I would re-buy this game if it was on Android tablets. If they want to make it for iOS, more power to them. The game is great and the more platforms the better. That said, the exclusion of the largest tablet OS on the market seems odd to me.

Also, if you own FTL on GOG, the download available through your account has already been changed. It appears you have to re-download the entire game to get the "Advanced" part. Of course, the "entire" game is 211 MB, so no big deal.

Because iPad has a single aspect ratio and small # of devices to test for. Android is a nightmare to support for developers.

Game needs dynamic skirmish AI that purchases equipment and troops on its own and adapts to players. Players have taken it upon themselves to create a dynamic campaign but it has severe limitations that DMS could fix and make into an entire SP/Coop game mode that would be incredibly popular and would never get old.

Don't worry Xbox fans, you will get your deal too - I'm going to guess it will be last years COD map pack for 15% off - what a steal!

They go Dead Island and Toy Soldiers- Cold War. Whoo?


That's actually decent, funny what competition does to companies. I used to be on Live Gold a few years back and I remember Microsoft's idea of "deals".

For comparison here, the PS deals are 2013 games, if its Dead Island/Toy Soldiers they are 2011 games. Eventually MS will catch up.

I bought Blood Dragon and when I attempted to play it Uplay was offline and it wouldn't let me in. That's the last Ubisoft game I will buy for a long while - certainly not going to get involved with ACIV with that shit in it.

Arma is not fast paced, there are some missions where you can jump right into the action, but generally missions take patience and planning to ensure you don't draw too much attention and die instantly - which will still happen. It can be frustrating but also rewarding when you learn how the AI spots you and adapt.
