He reminds me of a villian from Power Rangers

Yeah, he does look like that Ivan Ooze guy from the Power Rangers movie. I hope they spruce this up in post production, because those photos look like someone tried to make a fan-made X-Men movie back in the 90s. Psylocke looks like crap, Storm looks like crap, and Apocalypse looks like a blue Odo from Deep Space Nine.

Maybe this is some kind of joke and red herrings while they make the real movie.

I don't know what crack your on, but Psylock, looks like she should there is Nothing wrong with her look or that costume.

The Bards Tale IV by inXile entertainment Kickstarter.

Not seeing the spike at the end (yet) that sometimes happens. Seemed heavily front loaded and then kind of stalled. At least it made it's goal...


Even though this is a really good series of games. I think the only reason it got all the money it did was because of the giveaways in the first two day's. after that this game really feel on its face hard. and the numbers its showing now is only proof of that.

So, even though its funded, this really was a failed KS for them.

Kind of interesting, but I can't quite get what it's about though. Some play throughs on YouTube would be useful. Doesn't look like thry're asking for $400.00 for ships at least...

Yea, I felt the same way watching that video. I really didn't get what its really about or how it really plays out Especially combat. They didn't show off any of that. I like how it looks, but I need to see more.

This looks so bad I can't even form the right words... it's like they just threw all the ideas into a pot and let it spit out something with guns.

They gotta crank this shit out every year. It shows.



LOL, yea I gave up on this game long ago.

I have no idea why they don't just do a full Coop campaign game of this. to me that would be a much better game,

Before this is all said and done, this game will turn out to be the biggest law suit in the history of gaming.

Chris Roberts wont even be able to find a Rock to hide under after ripping off everyone with false hopes and dreams.


Come on, there have been waaaaay larger scams and those guys generally only get a slap on the wrist. At worst Roberts would get a stern talking to from the judge. Much as my derision for this project has always been high, it's not because I think Roberts is a grifter just that he lacks the focus to get it done. As someone who was actually working for EA in the 90s I remember the chats around the campfire about him and Molyneux. Suffice it to say those chats were not praiseworthy. That the success of "their" games was in spite of the and not because of them. Yes, they had vision, but that's about all they had.


Truthfully Cutter, I really believe all that money that came in so quickly and steadily went to his head. Hes lost focus on the games development and in some ways I think hes even lost some control over the entire project.

To many, its felt like hes had more interest in pumping out the next great ship to be sold. And theirs no lying about that one. the proof is on their web page loud and clear.

Creston wrote on Jul 8, 2015, 10:55:
Come on, why are you guys hating on them for giving away free MP content?

I mean, I don't particularly enjoy the MP in DA:I (and I played hundreds of hours of it in ME3), but they're still giving away a lot of free stuff for it. If you happen to enjoy it, you'd be getting a lot of mileage out of your 60 bucks.

I just wish they'd add some meaty sp DLC. (Jaws of Hakkon really isn't that great.)


Not hating on the game, just hating on the fact that the devs are doing very little to create newer maps to play Multiplayer on.

I've unlocked every charter in MP and its a bore-fest re playing the same maps over and over.

Still the same old WOT gameplay. Still Im tempted to download it and give it a whirl just to check out the graphics under GTX970...

Up to you Black, but personally I would waste my time with this pay to win game.

I gave up on this game long ago when these assholes lied and turned this game in to a pay to win.

Come on it's not that P2W. You only need to own an Atlas and a Timber Wolf and then you can win every game.

Example https://youtu.be/7pKwAlYXHlA
This is just 2 of us on voice chat together, competent enough in an Atlas and Timber Wolf, to entirely wreck 2 on 6 (After the rest of our team gets owned) Clan LRM's were VASTLY superior to regular LRM's. Longer range, faster lock.

The game is clearly pay to win, and way paid and won. This was almost a year ago, I have no idea if they've rebalanced Clan weapons or not. And we haven't played since.

You don't get it do you Trev? the whole reason this game is failing is because they originally went on this rampage about how they needed money to create the next great Mechwarrior game. They teased us with this really kewl looking trailer of Mechs fighting it out. Then they talked about making this really great SP campaign and possibly making it Coop. All were lies. once they got the funding they needed it turned in to a Fricking PVP P2W feast.

So yea, its all bullshit an they pretty much abandoned their fan base except for those rabid fans that live for PVP and thrive for clan based combat.

Me, I took it even more personal, because I made the two Coop mods back in the day for Mech Warrior 4 and Mercenaries. I had high hopes for this game and they squashed them all for the sake of making a quick buck.

Is it like STO where you can get special items and ships if you pay but you can still do okay in fights (and even win) if you have skill and do some grinding / missions?

Or is it truly $ = you win button?

I mean, they're giving the game away free so money has to come in somehow.

I don't mind paying if it's not a fortune to get something decent.

Its all PVP based. there are no missions to do at all.

About time, the UI and inventory stuff was definitely the low point of this game.

Totally agree, I'm so glad I have been holding off waiting for some patches before I picked this back up. and now after this new patch will be a good time to jump back in.

When I posted about this yesterday in their forums, Ash responded with....

We're listening. Everyone here on the team wants folks to enjoy SCL. If we hear that this is a feature enough people want... well... we're listening

And most people responded with 'How was this NOT a given that people would want to build custom maps?' Maybe they can change it, but if they don't then Rick is right and its going to be an awfully short lived game.

Yea, this is a bit baffling to hear them say that, how can they even say that if enough people want this feature we will consider it or add it. I mean really what does it take a rock along side the head to wake these guys up?

Cutter, have you bought a copy of the game yet? or are you holding out?

I did buy the game, but its because I want to play this Coop with my friends. so if you do get a copy. let me know and Ill add you to my friends list on Steam and we can play this Coop if you want.

To answer one of your comments Horro about scripting. Our mod we made. the first one took us 19 months to make that game with a team of 6 people. me being the main person who did most of the work on the levels and detailing and some of the scripting .while others made Textures, portraits. scrips and tiles sets.

The Second part took a little less time, 16 months. but still that was a lot of work too. had a team that was with 6 people.

Still a lot of work for a small team to make both of those games and they play out at around 30 hours for each modual if you do all of the content.

I guess my hope that this game will offer a custom tool system as comprehensive as NWN2 was a pipe dream.

Yeah that isn't happening.

DEV:
To be completely clear, we don't currently support laying out the dungeon in a tile by tile fashion. But it does also appear to be the #1 request, which is understandable.

Let me be clear, why would the devs not expect this to be the number one request? Only an idiot would think otherwise especially with the Huge success NWN had with their tools.

These devs are either lying or completely oblivious.

Still, what they have put together is nice, but its still consolized shit.
