“..this huge amount of extra horsepower allows us to do things that simply weren’t possible until now."

Except put in co-op. These guys are idiots. No longevity for this.

Totally. Its just like the Elder scrolls series. Really sad how fast Skyrim died off and no one bothers to play it anymore. If only it had co-op...

Haha. I'm also surprised no co-op, after those people put in so much effort and made that mod, and it was well-received.

How well-received was it? Because it doesn't look like it was well-received enough for them to turn the gmae into a co-op game.

Also, I can understand why they wouldn't go the co-op route with this. Co-op can seriously restrict the things you can do in a game. Including totally screwing up scripted stuff that's story related.

Not every game needs to have multiplayer. This is their third game in this franchise. If they thought the game required multiplayer to be good, I assume they would have done it by now.

If they had stated the truth from the outset - instead of allowing people to infer... - and adjusted the price for a much smaller game all would be well. This is a problem of their own making.


Yeah I'm *gasp* agreeing with Cutter again.

I just don't get this. The situation sounds sympathy-worthy on the surface, but when you look at the experience and past titles of the studio, it doesn't make sense that they botched things that badly.

Even without taking into consideration what you told fans, when you played the game from start to finish, what did you feel like it delivered and was worth? What did the testers feel?

After doing a bit of reading last night, it looks like Roberts hasn't shipped a game since 2003. And that game was late. By years.

I think this may be a case where, perhaps as a producer or designer, he may be in a bit over his head.

Freelancer? You mean the game MS *fired* Chris Roberts from so that it could eventually ship?

Yeah, that's the one!

So why the lack of confidence? Wiseguy

Frozenbyte are not a new studio. They've been around. Why would they budget so poorly for something like this? Trine is one of their best franchises.

Yeah, it was a huge letdown. A definite day one purchase regret.

Fortunately I purchased it after the first expansion and much patching and it was pretty awesome.

Hrm, maybe I'll have to do that then. I loved the original but this - as day one at least - was disappointing to say the least.

A lot of people thought so as well. I would say though, that with the new expansion and the new mechanics like the race governance system, it is a very solid game now.

Well at least depending on what you hated about the initial launch it is solid. If you jump back in, play the beta patch...lots of good stuff in there including a new tutorial.

Unless you have unlimited resources and insane processing power, there is never going to be a high level AI in any 4x type game that doesn't cheat.

ALL high level AI in most 4x games get bonuses to production, gold etc.

Unless you have discovered the magical means to give an AI an organically adaptive brain, that's what you'll always have.

That said, the AI in AoW 3 is not that bad. It is actually pretty decent. Also...are you forgetting that there is such a thing as Greater Disjunction? Maybe the AI is using that...

Some of the early combat footage looks really bad. Hoped they went with turn-based. What I have seen looked really messy and boring. The rest of the game? Amazing.

No they did not go with turn based. Was Syndicate in any way turn based? Because that is what this is a spiritual successor of.

I replayed the first (HR) one 3 times ;p So I am kinda hyped for this.. just hoping it will still give us option for a complete non-lethal playthrough.

I play games to kill and hurt things. What is this 'non-lethal' method you speak of?

I find myself not interested in this anymore.

I was really hoping that they would have hit it out of the park with this game but it just doesn't seem like they ever will.

How about taking the kickstarter money and work on Squadron 42 ONLY. Then relase this (just a Wing Commander clone - no FPS, multiplayer or stuff), and with the money that they can make if Squadron 42 is great and successful, make the MMO with FPS and stuff. How about that? Finish SQ42, release it to prove what you really can pull off and by this, win over new investors. No hangar, no dogfight module, a complete single player SQ42. And then move on to MMO, IF SQ42 can win over the gamers.

Right now, it's a Flagship situation: release a single player game telling everybody it's actually an MMO with bells and whistles. People don't want to be Flagshipped again. At least they shouldn't want to be.

I strongly suspect that Squadron 42 was never what Roberts wanted to work on in the first place. He could have made that, released it, and then continued to look at expanding the other aspects of the franchise. He's instead fixed on this MMO idea that no one really asked for.

I wish Steam themselves would pursue legal action, on behalf of their customers, when these shenanigans are brought to light. No pun intended. Perhaps threat of a lawsuit would keep these types of scams off their service.

Right. So sue people who are probably already broke (likely why they are scamming in the first place) so then you are stuck with legal fees and nothing to show for it.

What would be more effective is to blacklist developers based on shady practices including refusing to Greenlight any other games from them if they are provably dishonest.

Expecting Valve to play each game to completion or whatever before allowing it is nutty.
