I'm still waiting for someone to tell me that the game is good so I can finally buy it.

Spacehulk looks like fun.

I went into an official Games Workshop store one time. It was almost wall to wall obesity and there were no women in site. I know that's the stereotype, but it was also the truth. I mean, damn.

Maybe I just went on the wrong day or something.

News Comments > EA All-in on Microtransactions
46. Re: EA All-in on Microtransactions Feb 27, 2013, 23:38 Silicon Avatar
 
The worst thing I hated about microtransactions wasn't getting hit for $2 - it was having to fiddle with a store interface every time I wanted a new outfit or whatever. It was too much hassle.

I'd rather buy DLC.

Then again, I was okay with it when I played ST:O.

I guess I just hate EA.

I watched someone play Anodyne and it looked pretty weird and kinda fun.

The Tress FX hair does look better. I wish Skyrim had it - along with deformable cloaks.

On the other hand, graphics technology has now come to a point where I can't really tell much difference when I'm not paying attention. If they hadn't made a deal out of pointing out the hair, I probably wouldn't have noticed it or thought about it.

Roam looked fun but I saw it too late and the KS is closed.

I guess I will check it out on Steam.

BTW if any of you are going to SDCC this year the Two Guys from Andromeda are going to be there at a booth somewhere. I may have to dig out an old Space Quest box and see if they will autograph it. I just hope I still have the boxes.

News Comments > After Reset Announced
4. Re: After Reset Announced Feb 24, 2013, 12:37 Silicon Avatar
 
It's still a market with pent-up demand as far as I can see.

The only problem with indie RPGs set in this genre is that practically every one of them tries too hard to be Fallout 2. After Reset looks like it might have the same problem.

News Comments > Legend of Grimrock 2 Announced

There is more hate on this thread than I thought I'd see.

I played LoG on "hard core" (whatever) mode and beat it. I thought it was pretty fun and will probably buy the sequel.

The only thing I really hated about it was the spell casting interface. That just sucked and I'm sort of disappointed they didn't patch a fix in.

I hope the next one is longer and fixes some of the balance issues. I guess I just didn't expect to see DLC from an indie so I'm not disappointed that there won't be any.

The story is definitely out of the Bioshock playbook.

Almost too much, but I'll be getting it anyway...


Yeah, I wanted to comment on that too, but I decided it was probably going to be okay.

The motorized George Washington (in one of their other videos) kind of sold it for me.

I wonder why they limited themselves to 1280 x 960 resolution.

I'll probably play it.

I'd almost get a cheap PS3 to play Bayonetta. It's over the top and stupid and yet pretty enjoyable.

I don't know if they can recapture the same thing in the Wii U version without retreading.

I think people nit pick too much. I'll leave it at that. I think this is just meant to market the license and have some fun. It definitely isn't aimed at diehard fans of the original series.

Have diehard Star Trek fans accepted the reboot on a whole? I found it to be atrocious, the recasting of most of the characters was decent enough but everything else felt so opposite of what Star Trek should be. Just look at that freeze frame from this video clip, pretty movie accurate. How did something that god awful ever get approved.

As far as I can tell most fans have accepted it. I have. I liked it.

The movie did a pretty good job of being movie Star Trek. Series Star Trek has a different feel and that hasn't been rebooted. I'd welcome a reboot of it too though. I still like TOS, but I'm ok with new things.

If I were still a big FPS guy this game would probably appeal to me. It seems ok for a movie-tie in game. I'm just more into RPGs right now.

Anyone else remember the really good Star Trek RPG/adventures that Interplay made (before they started to suck)? I want more Star Trek games like that.

You can make NV look better with mods and some ini tweaks, but I'd still rather have an updated engine.

I think when they were saying "New Vegas 2" they probably meant "Fallout in the west 2". I don't think they'd revisit the exact same area. I am totally down for that.

A Fallout based on the latest Skyrim engine would make me happy. I still play New Vegas but it is definitely creaky software.

They're taking fan input on the game as it's in development. They can't do that as well with one update every 3 months.

Besides, every update is also a marketing tool. You can still put money in and/or change your initial "investment".
