umm what worried me the most about that article where the comments underneath it.... is there some sort of special group of people who read the washington post or am I missing something here ?

Well it is Washington and thatis where the Fed's are at? Also if you are a patriot (not in the Websters dictionary sense) you hate Snowden because the country tells you to hate Snowden. They follow that eos.

My brother is a patriot to no end. The funny thing is everything he warns us about to me is selling fear. I don't think he knows it, (yes some tell him) but everything he freaks out about almost none of it ever pans out to his level of severity. Oblivious. But god damn he literally thinks he's right beyong question and I'm naive.

Corps hoard the money then blame the gov't for not having money because they don't know how to budget. Games people play.

It's never going to Steam, ever, the entire point of Origin is to compete with Steam.

And save them from paying ~30% or whatever their cost would be to steam.

On the ARK vs Primal blah blah...

Even in Ark is better, so what does that mean? I never buy another game somewhat like it? If so, and that does make some sense, I really haven't needed a FPS/RTS/CRPG/DeathMatch/Mobe/TeamDeath/CTF/ARPG game in many years. Could save a f'in bundle. All these genres have already had great entries, why are we just buying the same crap over and over? A: That is what we do. So if you do... then there is no point in saying buy this one and forget the other, you buy them all.

Bonus Point the person who tells us buy this forget that, doesn't want VR to fly, even though that will give us a whole slew of new game play types. Poo Poo'er Poo Poo'ing.

My guess is both games are pretty fun.

Can I just say that I really don't need a game that's far, far bigger than the Witcher 3? Witcher 3 is plenty huge already, both land mass size and content wise.

Please don't go overboard and make it too large. Instead, make the quests more reactive, more involved. Have diverging paths.

This. Unless there is co'oping capabilities.

Amazing Timing, TPP Signed Today:

"One particularly controversial part of the provisions make it a crime to reveal corporate wrongdoing "through a computer system". Experts have pointed out that the wording is very vague, and could lead to whistleblowers being penalised for sharing important information, and lead to journalists stopping reporting on them."

That 90 million bucks goes away REALLLLLLY quickly once lawyers get involved.

$91M stretch goal: CIG hires more lawyers!

One of my thoughts is this was a huge scam and the escapist was in it all along and when the shit was starting to hit the fan, drop the over the top article, start the lawsuits and ultimately blame the lawsuits and the money pit it creates as the reason for fail, while white knight'ers use it as part of the grief recovery process... Acceptance. "It would have been great if Escapist and Smart didn't derail the project".

LOL just read monk's comment above mine, same idea. This is the out.

They are really trying hard to attract a younger audience. It's overhyped. I think there is not enough skepticism of this game. I predict a mile wide but an inch puddle deep.

There's definitely been plenty of skepticism here on Blue's, Cutter especially, but basically everyone. We've all come to the same basic conclusion: where's the beef? It looks nice, but what's the gameplay? It looks like an engine in search of a game. That being said, it's a pretty sweet looking engine. And since they're not going for hyperrealism, it doesn't really look dated to me.

Yep because all we see is uncommunicable life on each planet, it's not like you go there for an interesting conversation. Are there cities? So far just basic hills and prehistoric animals. I think what they have proven so far is there are good with programming loops (aka procedural programming). Dudes getting a lot of airtime with no real release yet of anything. Instead of space truckin we have planet hopping. The other thing he admits, it is going to be really rare seeing someone, oh great. Perhaps you should shrink your game 99.5% to give it some player/player interaction.

You can buy an entire PC for that here.

Not a great gaming one, but I don't need a PC, I do need good VR. We'll see if it is good. But this can easily sell in that realm, it will come down generation to generation.

"With the latest addition of Game Master mode, you’ll be able to craft your own dungeons and then control them as your friends play, placing enemies on the fly, manipulating the environment, and doing everything you can to utterly annihilate them…or, we suppose you could give them a "fun" experience. "

I have been waiting for exactly this for 2 decades.


Didn't Neverwinter Nights do exactly this over a decade ago?

NWN did a lot, but it wasn't what I would call easy to just do these things. We'll have to see how it turns out, they are taking suggestions now in their forums for this and mod tools.

When i read "you'll be able to craft your own dungeons" that is the mod tool. And the part about a GM doing a bunch of things in game, imo fans dreams don't mesh all that well with actual game-play. "I want to create quests, conversations, rooms, traps etc on the fly as if the other players playing the game are simply going to sit there and wait, as everything takes time to do. Sp some of those things can work and others won't for most. I think there is a reasonable handful of things a DM could do while others play the game. I will surrender there are some players that would sit their idle while the GM does their thing, but imo we are talking at most 1% of the players that will play your game, so do you really make tools for that. I always assumed that is why NWN didn't keep progressing in certain areas, they aren't used as much as we hype them. They sell in the million and at best just 1000's use them for a smallish period of time and move on. 100's may stay for an extended period.

I am currently playing the first one and enjoying it. Man, I left off in August 2014 after having played for ten hours and now got back into it. Great game.

Backed the second one, really looking forward to it.

End of next month we get the EE version and it seems like there is a lot of changes. Same for Wasteland.
