News Comments > XCOM 2 Delayed
23. Re: XCOM 2 Delayed Aug 29, 2015, 23:15 Task
 
I enjoyed the 'reboot' quite a bit but as far the rushed aspects they might be referring to: lack of randomly generated terrain maps, ability to build multiple bases around the world removed, lack of base invasion/base defense, and perhaps lack of an invasion of mars like the original.

I don't know if lack of those things in the game necessarily counts as 'being rushed' though, some of them are just design decisions, but with XCOM2 they did state outright, since they are concentrating on one platform at the moment, they can add things they wanted in the game back then.

Ah, I see. It would be cooler still if it was a physical item; like some fancy album box with all the games in it.

The story, from what I'm understanding, is explained a lot more in the book in the deluxe edition. The original Syndicate game had its story in the Manual, so it seems they are similar in that way.

Not very special if its not a physical version... Not quite understanding this though, does it include the new MoO that they are making?

Let's keep this going ;). Can you hire former FDA to be on your board of directors to help approve dangerous, more expensive drugs?

So I found out there are pacifist achievements for completing each area, but I'm wondering how that works. I'm assuming stealth is a thing.

Also, regarding Cyberpunk - that teaser trailer they put showing the cyborg woman is a nod to the cyborg woman doing a similar pose in the source book I think. Its right after the Contents page in the Cyberpunk 2020 2nd Edition. Probably in good hands seeing as they go straight to the source. Side by side comparison if anyone is wondering what the hell I'm talking about.

If you look closely at the cyberwear shop behind the firefight, you also see the rocker chick in the nightie with the chrome arm lifted straight from CP2020.

Edit:

Oh that's the picture I"m talking about.

Good eye on that, didn't even notice the actual redrawing of it in the background.

Wow, Microsoft is really killing off their franchises I see.

"free-to-play medieval MMO tower defense game" - Pass

First it was AOE:O (failed), now this, and they shipped off MW to become a nickel-dime F2P as well.

Do they intend to do anything proper with their PC franchises? There may be some decent, non-nickel-dime f2ps, but the mere fact that F2P is a thing has seen the downfall of cherished games into the pit of mediocrity and despair :(.

Netflix would probably do it better methinks. Their shows have been pretty decent.

Ah, I figured. They had to add in battle locations mentioned for the new movie.

The Battle of Jakku will be seen in Star Wars Battlefront in a free downloadable level set to be released on December 8, 2015, two weeks before the premiere of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens releases in theaters.

Well, they deserve it. After giving me an awesome RPG trilogy to play.

For Cyberpunk, they've stated they won't release much information until its basically done. They intend to show it off later like Bethesda does with their games.

Also one of the few times in a game where you can play as a bad-ass Native American, who happens to be a time traveling warrior (Tal'Set, AKA Turok). Hells yeah.

There's an hour long gameplay video that PCGamer put up today

Can't view at the moment. Is this gameplay of the D:OS1 Director Cut or actual demo footage of D:OS2?

I wish GOG would clearly state in the details of who was/is the developer or publisher, like steam does off on their side bar. FO1/2/Tactics was not made by Bethesda, but some people (not here) actually think they were, which is kind of funny I guess.

At least ZeniMax/Beth finally worked out a deal with GOG with all their games (edit - minus Oblivion and Skyrim apparently?)

Same here. But man, there was some translation errors in that write up or it wasn't properly edited. They kept referring to "Beat 'Em Up" as "Beat 'Em All" and some other head scratchers.

Like: Since when streets bastons are not violent? (What?)
or: Guns (pistols, shotguns) -> Heads explose (Heads explose, gotcha)

What a piece of work this. Sit down, be quiet, and go finish your broken game on Steam before it gets pulled. I think his wife, if he has one, needs to unplug his Internet for God's Sake.
