A malevolent force shrouds the land game and monsters financial ruin terrorizes the last bastions of humanity Nexon. All seems lost and yet one hope remains: you.

Fixed.

Wow, very cool. I like the cell-shaded art style, and the gameplay reminds me of the FPS-RTS hybrid Battlezone game. This was not on my radar at all, but I'm feeling the need, the need for speeeeed. And guns. And flamethrowers.

Ahh minimalist artistic style, when you just can't be bothered with doing graphics.

JUST BE GLAD THEY'RE NOT 8 BIT.

Yeah, they're definitely going for a Minecraft style aesthetic.

Hmm, from the name thought this was going to be the sequel to critically acclaimed indie game from 2013 "Gone Home."

Still looks pretty awesome. I like the low-poly look and open world exploration aspect. Has a Jack and the Beanstalk vibe. Would be awesome with the Oculus.

DLC is the in-app purchases of pc gaming.. NO one likes it accept the game companies.

I think they can be done well. The DLC in BL2 is fantastic, offers hours and hours of gameplay, and allows the devs to tell smaller, tighter stories than if they had to do a completely new campaign for a new game. It's all about the value you're adding for the money. Also, the original game had a crapton (I have more than 100 hours SP in both BL games) of gameplay in and of itself, so you weren't feeling ripped off to begin with. And the DLC is mostly unrelated to the main story, so it doesn't feel like anything was cut.

On the other hand, I waited until the GOTY edition to pick it up.

Has any "space game" ever done multiplayer crews before? (I'm not sure if EVE has them). It's always seemed cool in theory, but when you start thinking about what people would actually be doing, it kind of falls apart quickly, I'd think.

It'll be interesting to see how that shakes out, gameplay-wise.


Pretty sure that old MMO game Jumpgate did.

Correct. I think we might be shooting ourselves in the foot if we gave away 3 copies for every backer, especially since we didn't use a free to play model.
Well, I'd still be the only one playing it (probably with my kids, game looks cute), I just wouldn't be platform restricted. Platform agnosticism is the standard these days when multiple platforms are offered. When I buy Transistor or Shadowrun Returns on Steam I can install them on Windows, Linux, and Mac. I don't have to choose which one and be locked out of the others.
A good example of "I've done it for 20 years" would be this project, The Legend of Iya (the artwork is breathtaking).
Yeah, that's quite nice. Hadn't see that before.

It's not paranoia. It's not wanting to "become the product". I'm getting sick and fucking tired of all the data-mining / selling my info without my permission (or not given a choice).

I want the option to pay for a product without becoming the product.
You do understand every single company that provides you services does that right?
Starting from you ISP to your bank, cellular, Google, Steam, etc etc.
Sure go off the grid use MS DOS or something if you want, but these days you pretty much have to live like a cavemen to stop the data collection.
Unless you have something to hide I don't see the big deal

Edit: I am not supporting data mining I am just saying if you are using the internet or have a cell phone Win10 is the least of your worries when it comes to data mining.
You can always disconnect the network cable from your pc, can't do that with your bank account or ISP.
At the end of the day it is more pain in the ass to try to be "invisible" than what it's worth, unless you have something to hide.

We all have something to hide.

Also, there are other societies in history that kept dossiers on all their citizens. I'm not sure we want to emulate them: Nazi Germany, The Soviets, Communist East Germany, Communist China, etc.

I know my internet was out for 'a few days' last week. Or did I accidentally fall into a coma for a few years instead? What happened to Windows 9?

Did they forget what comes after 8 or did I miss something? Why stick with numbers if you're not going to be sequential? Did 7 really eat 9?

Lol, i can't believe i didn't think of that. good ol 7-8-9. anyways the real reason there's no Window 9 is because there's still checks in the codebase pertaining to Windows 95 and Windows 98. so anything that starts with "Windows 9-" is already buried in there somehow to this day. So the practical solution was go to 10 (or anything that doesn't start with "windows 9-"). there was never a "Windows 1". although with this penchant for "one" in their marketing, that day might come sooner than later...

That's a good one, I hadn't heard that. Although, we are talking about the company that went from Xbox 360 to Xbox 1

The goggles contain power source, CPU, GPU, and HPU. Essentially you're strapping a computer to your head. Not sure I like the idea of that much EMF that close to my head for any period of time.

The real reason is that Steam refuses to implement an age check, something we've been complaining about for what seems like a decade now.

Either way, from what I hear any of the mentioned games have more or less official uncensor patches flying about. Nekopara certainly had when it released (hosted on MEGA). And once you see what was censored it makes sense that they couldn't sell that on a store without a age check.

Steam has an age check. Any game with violence requires it just to get to the summary page for the game. Not sure what you're talking about? And if you want to purchase the game, you need a credit card of course, which requires you to be 18.

Don't hold your breath fellas. This is most likely vaporware. I'll believe it when I see it. Today Oxfam published a new report saying by the end of next year, the 88 richest people in the world will own over half the world's total wealth. The gap between rich and poor is growing - mostly on the poor side. Within the next 5 years most people will be worried about keeping a roof over their head and 3 squares a day. Not bullshit toys like this.


Not really a pessimistic person myself, but I don't see anything incorrect about your prediction.

Seems kind of gimmicky to me. I can't think of too many cases where I'd want a Terminator style overlay for the real world, and I don't need my Minecraft sitting on my desk. Something full-immersion like the OR is much more interesting to me.

If Windows 10 is like $20 a year, sure. If it's like $10-$20 a month, F that noise. As others have said, I'm tired of getting nickle and dimed to death.
I posted a link earlier in this thread clarifying the subscription confusion
In short there is no such thing, and never will be according to MS

Yup, good to know. Glad they clarified since they'd introduced some confusion in their initial announcement. Funny that there's so little trust of MS that if there's a question, people assume the worst.

They'll pry Windows 7 from my cold dead hands. This "offer" just shows that Windows 10 is going to be crap. Microsoft has no confidence in it.

It could be purely financial: the cost of giving it away free and not having to support Win 7, 8, & 8.1 anymore is cheaper than having to support all of those and Win 10 well into the future.

You receive a copy for the platform of your choice.
So I'd have to back twice if I wanted, say, a PC copy and an Android copy?

I went with 8-bit graphics because it's the style of illustrating I have been doing for the last 20 years (I used to do a lot of pixel work for Doom mods). I don't want the game to be defined by "retro" visuals, it's just the most comfortable medium for me. But you're right; if I continue doing art for games, I'd love to show off some higher fidelity art.
Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for answering. I often lament the 8-bit trend (even while enjoying games like FTL and Rogue Legacy), but have wondered why. "It's cheap and easy" has been my assumption, but "It's what I've done for 20 years" is something I'd not considered.

I came here to talk about Dark Quest, but no one is discussing it. So disappointing.

Funny comments from that article:

So Steam doesn't want to be steamy. Hmmm.
and
Am I the only one that thinks it's hilarious that the images in the article about Steam censoring porn games are *literally* censored with steam? (in order to get Steam to accept them)
