yes people trying to make money to feed their families and be a profitable company is total and complete bullshit! how dare anyone offer some cool stuff to encourage gamers to pre order and get some money into the developers pocket.

Publishers pocket you mean and less than 2 years after Sega shipped one of the shoddiest products I've had the misfortune of playing. People are understandably dubious about preorder DLC on anything Sega right now, have a sense of context man.

I try not to be petty about these things because a fun game is awesome no matter who makes it but he was a pretty ridiculous asshat to PC gamers over the years. Free or not there are so many ways to spend leisure time these days, he is going to have to do better in the PR department if he wants people interested.

He joked on Twitter the other day that he should totally hire Phil Fish to run PR for him. I would personally love that, just to watch the incredible train wreck that would ensue.

CliffyB + Phil Fish + DEREK SMART get together to make a F2P Mario Allstars clone.

I would totally play it.

The sheer volume of DLC for this will make Steam error out until a dev uses int64.

It feels like a 1/4 of a review. The intro sentence is about multiplayer, I mean no preamble or background? Other parts are seemingly taken from PR blurbs.

Anyhow, I don't get a strong feeling of a "party based tactical RPG" from this spammy combat. It's almost like you're playing solo, and suddenly your party just appears out of nowhere and starts throwing their shit around.

Yeah it hard to tell because they don't really pan around behind the player much but it seems like your party isn't even visible until you engage in combat. I certainly hope that isn't the case but often with these things its more about what they aren't showing you. The combat seemed really spammy and uncoordinated too. At least they let you equip people with armor this time haha.

Do you also get the 20% extra damage when you try to backstab?

Haha what?

Oh you were making a joke the whole time, my bad. Yeah I've been playing D:OS but it didn't even occur to me, sorry no coffee yet.

George R.R. Martin says 'f*ck you' to anyone who thinks he'll die before finishing 'Game of Thrones' series.

People say f*ck you to George Martin for wanking 5+ years per book.

Nothing heartless about it, DC Comics will now have to decide whether or not something is "worthy" of this based on social media outrage which isn't fair to anyone. Imagine being the dying cancer kid who gets told "nope sorry, your life sucks but you're not as deserving as the other kid". Jeffrey Baldwin died in 2002, let his memory be an anti-abuse law or something constructive instead of people crowdfunding a bronze statue.

The Shack remodel looks alright I guess.

DC Comics Reverses Decision, Will Let Murdered 5-Year-Old Be Superman.

Seems pretty dumb. Now they will be asked to use it on every sob story. The kid died a tragic death long ago, let his legacy be a law or some sort of preventative measure instead of a superman logo on a bronze statue.

It's not even the messaging so much as it is Microsoft simply isn't making a real commitment to it. They've been doing PR crap with it for awhile which is great for the bigger name indies who actually get devkits from them but bad for everyone else who has been getting the runaround. Sony on the other hand are doing subsidized dev kits, personal reps assigned to indies, great documentation and almost immediate access to DevNet and so on. They are actually trying to foster a community instead of just "oh look we're gonna have Transistor too!".

Looks like they might have played a bit of Skyrim! Haha holy shit that is some heavy imitation is the sincerest form of flattery stuff going on. The Dragon battle at least seemed more involved than that though.

Waiting for many reviews on this. They showed a bunch of things for DA2 that looked neat but turned out to be threadbare at best. Also when I hear PR wankery about "dynamic animal populations" and stuff I know I'm being BS'd.

UPDATE: Microsoft denies nixing Xbox One dev kit plans.

More 180s hooray. They have been doing the whole ID@Xbox thing all wrong anyway, trying to cherrypick "name" indies for press releases instead of actually developing an indie community which is what Sony has been fostering. There is a lot of grumbling about lack of info, no communication, shitty policies and other issues with ID.

Still have my original copy but I'll be all over this like white on rice. And forget Full Throttle - which sounds like biker porn - and let's do Day of the Testicle er, Tentacle instead - which sounds like manga porn instead. And what about Outlaws?!?!?!

Edit: I hope the soundtrack for GF is available this time around. Loved the music in it!


You have no idea man, Full Throttle was fantastic and I'd rate it even above this.

The combat is really unbalanced in general but you can make the most of it by positioning with summons/tanks and using the environment. Also having a ranger and a mage feels like what they balanced the game around (the latter especially has great CCs and shields), trying to do other combinations feels a lot more difficult by comparison.

I don't even bother picking up crafting components, you will have more money than you know what to do with as it is. The crafting system is terrible and I don't want to spend any more time than necessary dealing with the shitty inventory system either.

Beyond that its a pretty fun callback game, just needs some usability tweaks.

Yeah this was a total fiasco in beta, Project Microtransaction. Ridiculously paywalled content and they even managed to paywall user creations in the most obnoxious way. This game more than anything else speaks volumes about how Microsoft wants it audience treated.
