Unlike the other tac shooter kickstarter this guy has credentials that go all the way back to the originals of the genre.

I've known about Ground Branch for years. I'm happy to donate.

Most games can't hold my attention these days, even ones I enjoy, so putting a 9 hour session is pretty rare for me.
Good sign. I'm the same these days.

This cutscene thing is making me want to cancel my order. It sounds like a gamepad aid.

I think I figured out what I don't like about the cut scenes. It's not really the frequency or length that's the problem, it's that they usually end by dropping you into the middle of a firefight. Unlike in previous games, there's no option to approach a room full of bad guys, assess the situation and come up with a plan of attack, which was kind of the fun part...
Yeah that's what I was afraid of. In the previous titles I'd always chill a bit reloading pretending I was menace cool before charging in

How often does this happen, surely not every gunfight? There must be some uninterrupted exploration?

Yeah the leaked shots make it look like a straight up action game. The characters look less like engineers and much more like soldiers.

Dead Space 3: Army of Two?

Funny, but sad... because it's true. We know EA all too well.
Yeah my emoticon was more "waaaaaaaa" than "hahaha".

In a video I was taking a look at their offices, they have all their computers together like a lan party with no privacy walls between them, and they're all bunched up all in one big room. Doesn't that get tiresome after a while, to develop games like that? I would definitely need my privacy.
I would have killed for a cubicle while I worked for a game dev. Our room was positioned near the office toilet. Nerds piss directly into the water, no one told them it'd be quieter if they did it down the side of the bowl. Damn nerds.

Word is this has the Metal Gear disease where you get to sit and watch lots of cut-scenes.
Yeah they've apparently Rockstar'd the game with GTA like slickly produced yet completely pointless cutscenes. Think Tony Scott films. Criminal is cool, bro. Cool and totally fucking superficial.

The "charming" over the top modern noir story (or really kliched depending on how you look at it) feel of the original is gone.

Though where it counts - the gun play - it's apparently as good as ever. I'll be picking this up. On DVD though. On my current connection it'll take 10 full days to download.

As long as the third is as good as the first and second then it's fine. Character progression is somewhat meaningless in the Dead Space world though. The story was threadbare. They could easily find a way to have him back on some ship floating around alone.

This is the only current game series I've cared about over the past few years.

So the auction house allows you to buy items in game? For what purpose? So that you can skip finding those items yourself?

I've never played any of the Diablo titles (or any MMO). But this mechanic sounds strange. Would I play Jagged Alliance and go online and purchase the best weapon right at the start of the game?

I find it hard to muster any hyperbole about a sandbox title where I move around 3D objects for fun as the second coming of pc gaming.
Maybe I've spent too much time moving around 3D objects in CG apps for a living. Never touched Minecraft or that Gary's mod either.

I'm currently reading Market Forces. It'd make for a helluva good American Psycho near future sci-fi like Carmageddon film. I picture it shot like Children of Men.
He's even built in the product placement with the crazy armoured BMWs and SAAB cars the execs use to off each other while getting their "promotions".

And Morgan has done some game writing, including Crysis 2 and Syndicate.
Too bad they didn't structure their stories around his ideas rather than only using his writing skills. Good on him for getting the dough though, it just sucks for us.

As long as the game mechanics are good and the atmosphere oozes cyberpunk then I don't see how they can fuck this up.

Games are much more about mechanics and atmosphere and hinting at the deeper meaning of the plot through atmosphere than outright story telling. It's something RPG nerds seem to miss and why I could never get involved in any RPG discussions without falling a sleep as people obsess over stupid minute plot elements.

Saying Deus EX had "huge impact" is just peculiar to me. Are you sitting there oh shucks'ing at the games dialog and the twists and turns of the plot? I liked it, but I don't recall any really awesome standout moments. The Bladerunner point and click adventure, where you could (for no particular reason) walk out onto the balcony of your apartment building and look at the view and just experience the atmosphere. That's something game devs can easily get across through visuals than reams of story that end up being walls of dialog and text.

Richard Morgan's Altered Carbon with a driven central character (who really wouldn't be out of place in a film nior or in a hard bitten action film) and the great sci-fi on the periphery. That'd work well for a game. Better than some of the older cyberpunk tomes that work as books but would be deadly boring as games.

RPS said nice things about it, but I tend to spend as much time editing Paradox game files as playing them. The $12.49 plentiful Paradox pack on Amazon has suddenly got me interested in this.

I was very surprised that I got into Crusader Kings as I find medieval history to be incredibly dry and mundane. The game mechanics are just that good.
