YAWN. Such a dead genre

Yeah...that Starcraft 2 really bombed and no one plays it anymore. RIP.

LOL, yea I had to laugh at his comments too. Apparently he lives under a rock.

The game is actually quiet good. I've been enjoying it a lot.

Have none of you guys ever played the Original Act of War? if so, very much like that. and Yes, this is a very similar game to Generals. in fact they made these games to be very similar to the old Generals.

And yes, the AI on the harder setting can be a very tricky bitch. he will attack you on one front and if he cant get in that way, he will find another way around your front to attack you. very good AI.

I've changed my mind on this game after completing the into and the first mission.

I absolutely f'ing hate the inability to map my keys as I see fit.

I have a Naga and a Nostromo, and I cannot bind the common keys I want to the buttons how I like them. I am not doing anything out of the ordinary either, this is awful.
Also- in the menu, it's built 100% for a gamepad, there is ZERO mouse support in the menu.. none, zip.. it doesnt work.. you have to use your arrow keys like a peasant.

the FoV hasn't bothered me yet, and the locked frame rate is fine for me at a solid 60fps.. the game looks great.

I just wish I could remap the keys how I want them.. why is this even a problem???

Go download AutoHot Key. you can then remap your keys by a script that you run for the game. best thing ever!!

More stupid decisions on EA's part. Six months from now, they will relent and fix this. But the damage is done. Personally I have no interest in PVP, so they lost my money anyway.

Looks pretty sweet. I'll pick this up at some point. I just picked up the first one during the summer sale, so I'll play that one first.

Also, not sure that we've had that much of a dry spell. Grey Goo was a pretty classic RTS that came out just a few months ago.


Grey goo is a POS compared to this. Trust me no comparison at all.

Sorry M$, this will not get me to use Win 8.1 not matter what games you exclusive to it.

In the end: Damn, I want that game and my new graphics card is DirectX (insert number her) compatible, so I'll upgrade.

I call it the Windows upgrade drama, because with each new Windows version, the drama repeats itself and the drama queens are almost always the same.


Thats where you are wrong and for assuming. I'm on Win 7 and very happy to stay there. I refused to move over to Win 8 and 8.1 and will be refusing to move over to that shit spy infested Win 10.

Is there any sort of project schedule or deliverable plan? They are quick to tell you all the awesome 1007 you will get but come up short on any sort of plan that describes how they will deliver.

Damn, $50 to get a copy of the previous one with it?

Guess I'll pass...looks like they'll do fine w/o me anyway.


25 a game is too much?? Considering it's still 40 for the original at full price, sounds like a good deal to me if you don't have the first already.

As far as schedule goes, who knows, it's KS. But Larian will deliver as they've shown.

I would have gone $30 or $35. I guess I feel like if they're funding their next game, the previous one should be gratis, as an incentive. Like what inexile did with the first 24 hours of bard's tale.

Theirs actually two 50 dollar pledges. One gives you two copies of the new game while the other gives you a copy of both old and new. I don't see how this is a problem and like nin said. there are other lower end tiers to pledge to.

This was a no brainier backing for me, I loved the first one. And these guys set out to make a great RPG and they deliver.

Cant wait to play this one. and I really liked how both players were off doing separate things and backstabbing each other. Pretty kewl!!

Man this one reeks of DLConsolitis. I *really* hope I'm wrong, however everything I've seen about this points to "avoid" if you are a PC gamer who thinks the original NWN was the last great DND title...

You couldn't be any more wrong on your assessment of this game. Its not going to get gouged to death with DLC. The devs have already stated that. there is no in game market to push items onto the players. They are however going to be releasing content to the community over the year. and new Add-on and more char classes to play as.

And quiet frankly there is nothing wrong with a company like this one that's small and has limited resources to sell DLC to keep the game alive and letting them be able to create more content for the game.

try watching some of the videos they have released over the past two months. this is going to be a very good game and a lot of fun.

Lets see if they try offering loyalty rewards for people staying around. I'm in to them for 60 bucks, haven't felt the need to get a refund just yet. I was one of the original backers. So I do have more of a chance to get one if needed.
