Would be extremely difficult to have a first person view considering the Euphoria animation system creates so many random movements.

Sure, it can switch to 3rd person when you fall/die/etc, but there are plenty of times where it may get puke worthy in 1st person just running around


People have already modded the console versions to add it, so if they can do it, R* can...

This would be cool.

I'm wondering how many hours it would take to walk from S to N on the map, in first person.

I'm a little skeptical of it (them delivering it), but I'd love to see it happen...

So the game itself isn't too good?

Not $25 good, no. More like $7.99 good.


So I guess my question is (granted, answer being subjective): Did they charge $25 and plan to make a $25 game, and have scaled back what it does to a $8 game? That's the impression I'm getting here, but I also admit I've not played it, nor reviewed the features.

Still doesn't look good, and I'll definitely think twice the next time they offer early access or a KS.

I can vouch that the cached version worked yesterday, and pointed to R* support page. I should have saved a copy...

I've seen a couple visual glitches now that had to do with shadows. They correct themselves in a turn or two and are infrequent.

I read on the steam forums last night they they were encouraging folks with graphic issues to try the dx9 mode. Apparently the dx11 mode is somewhat new, and they're still working out the kinks.


I just read that they had already sold $1 million dollars worth of this game on Steam.

I hope you're right!

Pretty much that, exactly. I have to seriously wonder if they understand the extent of the damage they're doing.

I can lend evidence to that. I had some interest in this game but was waiting for it to be finished. I had heard the name Double Fine before but knew little about them (didn't even know they were making this). Now all I know about them is they don't finish the shit that they sell and I don't want anything to do with them. Good job guys.

I'd certainly think twice about giving them any future KS money.

Kids who died from flu last season: Most skipped vaccine.

Wonder how many people got paralyzed from the flu vaccine last season.

None. It doesn't do anything. I feel so sorry for the kids of people who don't get inoculations.....doesn't cause anything. ADD and all that other stuff is in place WAY before any shots are given.

I love that fact that he poses a question he can't even answer. It's double crossing yourself and not even realizing it.

I really feel DF is shooting themselves in the foot. How do they expect anyone to crowdsource any of their future projects? This is a PR nightmare.

Pretty much that, exactly. I have to seriously wonder if they understand the extent of the damage they're doing.

I have played through about ten hours and it's pretty fun.

Ups:

I like the story. I die a lot and I constantly feel starved for resources. No crashes or glitches so far. UI is pretty easy to use. I like the situations my party gets put in and I like the combat mechanics.

Downs:

I do miss having a quest arrow. Graphics are a little murky sometimes. Graphical character customization is lacking. Combat could have had more tactical options.

Ten hour review:

I'd give the game a solid A- / B+. Wasteland 2 is a game that has fallen right in line with my expectations. I'm going to go play it some more today. The story has drawn me in and I want to see my characters survive. I hope this success lets them make some kind of expansion or sequel with even more money. I don't want this to be a one-off. I want to see an entire series.

If you're not sure start with a "Let's Play" on Youtube and see if old-school is for you.


That all sounds awesome - keep the impressions coming!

Thanks!

Interesting...among others:

The game cost us around 5 million to create, all said and done. We raised just over 3 million between Kickstarter and paypal during our drive, then had some residual and early access sales. Brian put a chunk of his own cash into it as he wanted to get it right.

We don't need HUGE sales to be a success. One of the benefits of being a small to mid size dev team is we don't need to sell 5 million units to break even.

Oh you poor cyclists. It's horrible, you only get to ride in the sidewalk and the road, you violate traffic laws constantly and then the cops have the audacity to enforce the laws on the books? Total outrage. Check your privilege pedestrians

I'm not a fan of cyclists (specifically in the road, w/o bike lane, when they can't keep up with traffic), but police making off with your property and leaving no notice is a dick move, no way around it.

My only complaint is that the story is so patchy it's pretty much worthless. I beat all of the missions and strikes, read all the online stuff on my Destiny app, and still really have no idea what is going on. Darkness coming for us all, blah blah blah. If all the bad guys work for the darkness, why do they all fight each other?

And how I am supposed to take the robot Captain Mal?

So what do you think of the theory going around that we, the players, are the darkness?

Yeah, see ya when this game gets down to a sane price.
Isn't this what gamers are always saying they want? A game tailored first and foremost to take advantage of their own platform? True expansions instead of DLCs? Broad control schemes instead of context buttons?

But now that someone does all that, in a genre long in need of a commercial revival, and charges an industry standard price, they're asking too much? Jesus, what do developers have to do to make you people happy?


Basically, if you take whatever cutter says and think of the exact opposite, that's reality. He's in his own little bubble, thankfully.
