The controller is the only thing that makes sense. You can't see in front of you. You need a simple control scheme that you can navigate without looking. Devs have already tried other options with their dev kits; take it from someone who has used them, anything more than a controller really doesn't work very well.

Even as a touch typist, I'd be hard-pressed to perfectly work a keyboard completely blind when it comes to games, since it's a different mindset and muscle movements than typing out text.

100x this. I have both a DK1 and DK2. Mouse + Keyboard is a pain in the arse when using them as if you take your hands off the keyboard at any time and lose your position then you end up taking the headset off to relocate them.
A controller is a lot easier and the best of current options available. The STEM stuff looks interesting, but it's while off being finished. Obviously haven't tried the Oculus touch peripheral yet.

Win 10 is free only if you're running Win 7 or above.

Like anyone serious about gaming is running XP or ME? Pull the other one, it's got bells on......

Also if this like other KS projects, 1.25 million is like 20to40% of what's actually needed.

Inxile over-delivered on wasteland 2. I think they know what they're doing here with regards to budgeting and cost management.

Why not revive Eye of the Beholder series, these were better than Bards Tale IMHO.

EoB was released 5 years after bards tale, we'd gone from CGA to VGA graphics by that point. It's main competitor/equivalent would have been the SSI gold box series.
2 years after EoB came out what I consider the greatest RPG of all time (well, till PST) was released.

Ultima 7.


Awww yeah......

I'm in. I liked Wasteland 2, it ticked all the buttons for me, and am really looking forward to torment.
I think I still have the old graph paper maps I made for BT1 and 2 somewhere. Them and the old SSI gold box series (Pools of Radiance, Curze of the Azure Bonds, etc)

Its almost 20 years since Nicola kicked of mame. The open source thing is just a legal technicality. The source code has always been there for anyone who is interested to view and/or to contribute to.
There must have been hundred, if not thousands of contributers over the years. Would have taken a while to track them all down.
Should be in the next Civ game as a Wonder of the digital age.

I'll wait for the Extended/Director's Cut/Whatever The Fuck Else They Decide To Call It to go on sale for $15. How would we already have two expansions, complete with play times, if they weren't planned and cut from the full title? I'm sick of this shitty trend. A lot of the stuff I've been seeing of this game makes me less than confident it will be a quality PC release anyway. Too busy playing GTA 5 at the moment to listen. XD

I hate day 1 DLC that you can see was clearly cut from the game to nickle and dime consumers. DA:Origins with the character that was clearly catered for throughout the original game but was a seperate day 1 dlc is the prime example of that.

This appears nothing of the sort though so you should probably kwitcherbitchin. If anyone out there deserves the benefit of the doubt when it comes to DLC, it's CD Projekt.

Announcement probably could have been better timed, but thats a marketing thing, not a shitty business practise thing....

Just check the official forums. There are (partially were after the patches) at least a dozen showstopper bugs that prevented any progress and dozens of gamebreaking bugs like the infamous stat bug, disappearing items or animal companions, invincible monsters, unlimited XP gain and all other sorts of seriously annoying crap.
Obsidian themselves have even made a "known issues and workarounds" thread for your perfect bugfree game but it's cool that you know the game better than its developer. /golfclap

Way to completely misread what I wrote. (/golfclap) I didn't say it was bugfree, I said I'd only encountered one so far (fixed by a save/reload). How many of these bugs have you actually encountered yourself, or is this just another vitriolic diatribe about something you haven't actually encountered?

Probably will do that anyway after this complete clusterfuck of a release riddled with showstoppers and gamebreakers outta the ass.
I think we must be playing a different game here. Halfway through act 3 and the only bug I've encountered so far was sorted by doing a save/reload. What exactly are you ranting about?

News Comments > Surf's Up in Tropico 5

I did like the previous tropico games. Didn't get this one yet though and don't think I will now with all the DLC and expansions that are coming out so soon (or almost immediately) after release.
If you're going to do DLC at least take a page out of paradox's book and make it worthwhile. Crusader kings 2 is brilliant and the majority of the DLC that comes out adds even more good stuff to an already great game.

I'm going to pretend it's the end of 1999 and start of the millenium. UT just came out and epic are going to give me four great pieces of "DLC" and not even think about charging for it. Except back then it was just called "bonus packs"

I'm intrigued. I thought Wasteland 2 was great and did exactly what they set out to do at the start of the kickstarter, so am very interested on what they have in the pipeline post torment.

DVDs don't confirm that you fully comprehended the first act before letting you jump to your favorite scene in Act 2 (or make you suffer through the bad episodes of a TV show just to watch the good ones).

Every blu-ray I've bought recently has forced me to watch some cunting trailer for a movie that I'm never going to watch.
You used to be able to skip them via using the menu or top menu buttons but not anymore.
