... It's more XCOM; what could possibly go wrong?

Goddammit! Why did you have to go and do that? No you jinxed it!

You know why Duke Nukem FOrever turned out disappointing don't you? Before it shipped someone said "It's more Duke Nukem; what could possibly go wrong?"

Eh, after ten+ years of hype, I think any game would turn out disappointing. DNF wasn't great but it's not nearly as bad as everyone claims. It was a 7/10.

Isn't that a bit generous? I have a friend who played it. He was a fan of the original. Thought it was maybe 5.5 - 6.

Was it really that enjoyable?

Cant wait for Enemy within....ohhhh gimme that XCOM goodness....

Enemy Unknown was mediocre at best. It certainly wasn't worth full price.

Are you referring to the pc version, or the crappy ios game? Because yours is the first negative comment I've heard about the pc version. It wasn't perfect, and had its flaws, but people loved it.


PC version. And my comment wasn't necessarily negative, it just wasn't positive.

I payed full price and found the game to be very repetitive and easy (my 2 snipers were annihilating all aliens towards the end of the game). Had I gotten it at 50% off I may feel differently.

And you played on the hardest difficulty on Ironman right?

I'll hold off on believing you just breezed through the whole game losing no soldiers and no countries on your first playthrough.

No, I didn't. I played on Normal and would have happily went to hard if the first play through wasn't so incredibly repetitive.

You can't really complain about difficulty if you aren't playing on the highest difficulty.

This is Bluesnews. I can complain about anything I want.

Just because you love the game doesn't mean my opinion is invalid. It is damn repetitive and simple once you learn the underlying mechanics (which should happen very quickly). Increasing the difficulty will in no way resolve these combined issues.

Just because you have an opinion doesn't mean it's grounded in fact either.

Many people who liked the original Xcom also liked this remake. It sold well and was reviewed and regarded as a decent game. Not perfect, but decent.

It's mechanics aren't vastly different from the original Xcom. So unless you came in looking for a different type of game, I'm not sure what the issue is.

Can we please have it be 3d this time?

I'm full up on retro 2d games. The prospect of a 3d Terraria is really appealing.

No Shadow Warrior? Annoyed

I've been having a blast with it. The powers and sword fighting are pretty awesome. The new Lo Wang isn't half bad either.

Oh wow, you're right. That IS disappointing, as people seem generally positive about it.

For some reason, there's a distinct lack of coverage for the game. IGN, Gamespot, Kotaku, Destructoid, Eurogamer, GiantBomb and most of the major sites have yet to even review the game, which is extremely odd given that the game was released almost a week ago. I can only assume that Digital Devolver didn't send out any review copies.

Weird move on their part. The launch state of the game is pretty close to perfect. No real bugs that I can see. And on top of that it is a fun shooter with some decent humor and great visuals. I love the melee combat with the katana and the way the ki powers work.

It would be a shame if something so obvious as review copies caused sales to tank for the game.

For the real time battles MYTH:The fallen Lords did this best. Have the main general distribute the units available to all participating players whether they had a general present or not. This would allow for a lot more flexibility and control over your units and be fun times. Maybe it does this already? I have a vague feeling in Shogun I was able to participate in my partners battles even if I had no units.

It did this in Shogun (2). My wife has no taste for blood so she always wanted the archers. I took the melee units.

Because arrows don't make you bleed??

The original Elite was never 'about' graphics other than dots and lines.

This visual extravaganza masquerading as Elite seems to intrude into Star Citizen space, where it cannot hope to compete.

I hope the gameplay is classic Elite or call it something, anything else.


So you want them to make a 3d wireframe graphics game so you can reminisce about the good old C64 days?

Why would they not make the game look good? Space sims are some of the easiest games to make great graphics for. It's mostly empty space to render.

I'm looking forward to what they show about gameplay too but wireframe graphics never really entered my mind.

I have to give them credit when credit is due. Its extremely rare in the gaming industry, but they rescued Elemental Enchantress out of the gutter and turned into one of the best fantasy RPG, and to give it away for free to the owners of the original is totally class act.

Keep up the good work.

Best fantasy RPG? So many things wrong in just a three-word phrase, it's kind of mind-boggling. Only the word "fantasy" applies to what they've done with Elemental. It's not "best" of anything and it's not an RPG.

Yeah, I was under the impression that it was a fantasy 4x game. RPG elements maybe...but that's about it.

The real culprits now are Blizzard and EA.

The people who still keep servers going for titles they released in the mid 90s? Really?

The people who require always online for single player games.

Diablo 2 is fully playable offline. Kill your net connection and try firing up D3 or the new Sim City.

Week 3 no Skyrim. The world is a darker place....

Well, I am fairly sure every human being on earth has a copy of Skyrim at this point.
I finally broke down and got it I think at $15 or $20. Then I had to wait for the DLC to go on sale. No idea why they didn't make more DLC for it, its like printing gold I bet.

Not sure they could do anything else that mods haven't covered. Plus there is the fact that PS3 apparently can't handle the game well so making DLC for it(which I think they HAVE to do if they make it for everyone else) would likely not be pleasant or easy.

How many truly fantastic games are forever gone because they required an online infrastructure which was shut down? I can't think of even one off the top of my head. Maybe with more thought...

City of Heroes.

I'm having trouble thinking of another one, though I expect Warhammer Online is on the chopping block before too long here (and I don't know how many people would agree with me that it was great).

Yeah but that was an MMO. There is no way that an MMO will go on forever. Although in the case of City of Heroes, that shutdown was just plain old stupidity and greed at work.

Its when single player games start becoming unplayable without an online server that I'm going to be truly worried. And even Ubisoft have stepped back from that. The real culprits now are Blizzard and EA.

I preordered. Something I rarely ever do but...

I got a 10% off coupon in my Steam inventory for some reason. Plus the game had a small preorder discount. then I had some spare cash in my Steam wallet from the crazy people who actually collect Steam trading cards.

Ended up paying under $26. That's not a bad pre-order price. Flying Wild Hog are pretty trustworthy devs.

Tired of games like this that come out and offer no Coop. Wasted opportunity!!

I'm tired of the shallow mindset that multiplayer is the only thing that makes a game worthwhile.

I'm always happy when a developer has enough self-control not to put themselves in over their heads. Trying to add a component that doesn't mesh well with their games just so they can tick a co-op or multiplayer checkbox, is stupid.
