News Comments > Godus Early Access

Been playing since the alpha. Very addictive game, I'm really liking it a lot. There's a few niggly things in there which could do with some finetuning (i.e. amount of clicking you'll be doing), but I'm really happy with where the game is so far and looking forward to the rest of it.

Nope I was wrong I do not have the 300i as I thought. Only have the basic ship.
Anyways speaking of sexy ships, take a look at this beast: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/pledge/products/constellation

Price tag is a bit over the top for my taste though

Thats the big one in the youtube I linked below. Have a constellation (big one), freelancer (not so big one), then the Origin 325a fighter.
Chris Roberts has said that the single player part of it is basically wing commander, you fly missions off the carrier (TIGERS CLAW!), etc. Then you muster out and get in the big multiplayer part. Or not. Run your own private server with mods, etc. Up to you.
I cut my teeth on the old origin games (and SSI gold box stuff). I spent a whole day installing wing commander 2 (uncrunching!)then the 6th floppy was fucked so I had to go back to the shop on the Monday to swap the damn thing. WC 1/2 , Privateer 1/2, Freelancer, plus all the ultima shit (though that was Garriot not Roberts).
Now I'm mid 30's and there's really been nothing thats really grabbed my attention gamewise for a long time.
Thats why when the crowdfunding for this started I was on the side of "Chris Roberts, just take my fucking money"

I've still got the blueprints and the claw marks book from the original wing commander. Same with the ultima 6 cloth map and moonstone.

Then I look at my ultima 9 dragons edition and hate myself

Would be interesting to know what the general sales figures have been. Smashed sales records at release and it's been either in or near the top 10 bestsellers on steam ever since.

News Comments > XCOM Shooter Getting Rebranded?
12. Re: XCOM Shooter Getting Rebranded? Mar 28, 2013, 09:02 PsychoMoggieBagpuss
 
I think Take2 were quite surprised by the reception of XCOM:enemy unknown when they released it, critics and players seemed to love it (majority of my friends picked it up).
They've managed to resurrect an old (and much loved) franchise without fucking it up (HAI SIMCITY), they don't need to be devaluing it by using its setting for yet another FPS.
Just give us more of the same TBS goodness please, maybe with a nautical theme (TERROR FROM THE DEEP!)

Just finished it.

Goddamn that was a fine game. A couple of minor quibbles, but honestly that's just nitpicking.
Just make sure you watch through the end of the credits when you complete the game.

Thanks Ray!

I gotta admit, I was going to skip this, but people are making it sound really awesome. I'll have to pick this up when I have some time. First I gotta finish Anno, Tropico 4 and Sleeping Dogs. And then I think Shadowrun will be out... This may become a Christmas Steam Sale title...

Creston

You don't finish Anno. You do the tutorials/deeper ocean missions and then you have fun in the continuous game!
(though I do recommend using a calculator such as http://anno2070.atspace.eu/ ).
BS3 does seem to be one of those rare games that's worth the full price.
If you're going to wait for the sales though try and avoid any spoilers or indepth reviews.
I'm usually one of those explore everywhere types but I've been skipping stuff just to find out what happens next as the story (and characters) are so captivating.

BF is the best FPS game on the market, and has been largely unchallenged for a very very long time.
Could not DISAGREE more.

Battlefield has become a complete joke.

Just out of curiosity, what's the best shooter, in your opinion?
For me, Quakeworld.

Aero/Basewalk. UltraViolence, Debello Quakero. Dm2-6. Threewave CTF. ikdm ,etc.
Nothing's come close since.

Cutter wrote on Mar 22, 2013, 18:19:
Yeah, I'd like to know how everyone gets paid. Is it a pool with base salary then points on additional sales? Who's getting paid what? I'm starting to get really of leery of backing well known designers who are already rich(ish).

I was in the same boat as you cutter, but at the end of the day the games I like to play aren't being made anymore. The big publishers just aren't interested in innovating or niche groups.
When the designers and teams who made the games that captivated me (and almost caused me to fail my BEng back in the day!), are asking for money to make those types of games again, i'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and will back them.
I may get burnt in the process, but come on, if theres a chance that I'm going to get another Ultima 7/PS:T/Wing Commander/Populous, I'm going to be all over that like flies on shite.

Somehow, I seriously doubt that they will be using the funds from this game fully. When they sit here and defend that they we will be using the funds just for the game. That raises a red flag to me. And 700K to add Chris, I dont see it.

Are you high? There are several stretch goal in between the current funding level and the Chris Avellone stretch goal so they aren't spending even remotely near 700k on hiring Chris Avellone + a lot of the money is being spent on other things like art, animation, code, etc to go with his writing/design work.

So even the 150k between the prior stretch goal and the Chris Avellone stretch goal isn't Chris's fee. 150k USD more in pledges implies more Amazon and kickstarter fees and more used on rewards. So the budget of the game won't be increased by that full amount.

Excuse me for not believing you, but you sound like an advocate supporter or work for them. My feelings on Kick starters are there are no checks and balances on how they are using the money.

Just because someone puts up a KS page and says I need 1 Million to make this happen, does not mean that they are using all of that money to fund the project. Itís idiotic to even assume that they are using all of the money as they say they are.

Are you sure you are not one of their stretch goals?

It comes down to trust. Either you trust whoevers doing the kickstarter, or you don't. If you don't trust them, don't give them money.
Kickstarter is a risk, as Schafer said when he started the DA adventure KS, either the game will be great, or a spectacular failure. Personally I don't mind throwing some bucks at a chance to get a game that I want to play.
