3 hours to go on Shadowrun: Hong Kong!

At nearly 1.2mill their original goal $100,000 wow


Yeah, was hoping it might hit 1.2 million before the end. It hasn't really had the end spike you see on a lot of KS. But it did well, and kicktraq says the average pledge is $38, which is awesome.

I'm thrilled it got the reception it did, and I can't wait to see the results.

Terraria was not that great a game, so I don't expect much from this one too. Really was not much of a sandbox, just another sidescroller masquerading as one.

I'll give that a 3 out of 10. Not much effort. Rather sad, really.

This game looks really cool: http://www.no-mans-sky.com/

I know it's probably been on the news before but I just heard about it the other day. If they can pull it off then I'll be all over it.

Yeah, it's been discussed several times now. JD has the gist of it. The tech looks interesting-ish, but we don't see where the actual gameplay is. That is to say the same problem with games like ED where the sandbox may be very wide, but it is o' so shallow.

Funny how interjecting the word sandbox into a game design makes everyone excited until they find out that their idea of what a sandbox is and the what the designer thinks are two very different things.

So you've played it?

Imitation game was good, but in a Beautiful Mind way....

Looking forward to that one on netflix. Sad what happened to the guy...

edit: Amazing he didn't get an apology until recently.

The Order: 1886 Leaks to YouTube in Full, Playthrough is Five Hours Long.

There seems to be a lot of debate as to if he was basically speedrunning it - people specifically say he was just running from checkpoint to checkpoint w/ little to no stopping. Also that he played on the easiest setting...going to wait and see more impressions.


Half Life 2 playthrough is 90 minutes long.

Man, what a ripoff. Glad I didn't buy that game!

Exactly why I'm taking the wait and see approach, especially with others saying it took them 8-10 hours.

I'm not going to pre-order GTA V because chances are high it's going to be a POS port.

I'm not taking any bets, but I'll say this...

One, I've not heard anyone complain about how Max Payne 3 ran on the pc when it was released. Two, it (edit: GTA) was released on two x86 based consoles last fall, and it runs and looks great.

If GTA V would be this super cool new game with unseen features then yes... I'd be inclined to preorder. However, it's the same old game, maybe with some shiny new features and some annoying characters. I can live without pre-ordering it.

To be honest, though, since I only have a PC I don't really follow console games much so I know next to nothing about GTA V and I won't care until it's out on PC. If it happens to be a good game with a good port it'll be a nice surprise. If not then it doesn't matter anyway.

I wouldn't say the character switching reinvents the wheel, but it does allow for a little more variety in what you're doing. If you liked the series since GTA3, I suspect you'll like 5. But if you didn't like those, I doubt this one will change your mind.

Holy crap I just read that article! About half of that 5 hour playthrough is apparently unskippable cutscenes. I don't care how much 'fun' you cram into a 2.5 hour game, it sure as hell isn't worth 60$....

Review embargo is like 7AM pst on Thur. I'll wait until then...

Game length should not be something anyone should base their decision to buy or not. Is the game fun is the better question to ask. Games can still be short and shit, but they can also be long and tedious. With that said I like long sprawling games, but then again I never even finish half of them.

I agree with that, but $60 for 5 hours of SP (if true!) and no multi is pressing it a bit, I feel like.

I'm hopeful, but I'm worried.

Glad there's finally a non-violent game where you can peacefully use a firearm to destroy targets which would never represent people. Have to keep the homestead safe from stationary paper targets and clay pigeons flying away at speed.

Sounds like Receiver.

k, also just saw via gamerdeals that Wolf Among Us ep 1 for ps3 is free at Amazon - something I can play 1 handed I think.

It's a great game, but don't drop any money on it until you're sure you can do the QTEs...

Anyone keeping an eye on 1886 The Order? Looks like ps4 only maybe?

That's in the "please don't suck, but I have a bad feeling" group. And yeah, it's ps4 only.

So how long is this age of "post-apocalyptic zombie survival crafting games" going to last? The Worth a Buy on H1Z1 showed me enough to stay a mile away, at least for now.

A little longer than the WWII FPS age...

Sad to see evolve at the top, all the videos I have watched of the game it looks very boring. Is anyone here playing it, have any input?

H1N1 has been selling more copies than evolve the past few days, which made me giggle. Right now, 6 other games are selling better. Hopefully those that bought into it now realize what a bad decision it was.
