... This is nice and all, but one would have to assume everybody who was at all interested in SoaSE has already bought at least one version of it.

Where is SoaSE2, Ironclad? I can't speak for all of your fanbase, but I at least would like SoaSE2 a lot more than whatever MOBA nonsense you're probably working on right now.

That Dishonored clip is pretty skillful, but of course he's murdering hapless guards. Clear violation of the no-kill policy, whoever is in that video!

No Kill games:
Dishonored(soon to be series), Deus Ex series, Alpha Protocol

Surely everybody plays by these rules?

Eh? Eh? Anybody?

More on topic, you guys are overly pessimistic for a game that's not even showing any actual gameplay yet. I bought Dontnod's earlier game, Remember Me during this Steam sale, it'll hopefully give a glimpse of where they are at, writing/design wise.

A one shot kill, hit scan sniper, with built in wallhack/heat vision? Lol.

I know this is an early build, but anybody with good aim is going to dominate with this class.

Of course all the good QWTF snipers are pretty much retired and gone so maybe it won't matter too much.

This... could be awesome. Streets of Rage(mostly 2, but 1 and 3 also) was one of my favorite games on the Sega Genesis, and this is clearly a pretty strong homage for the SoR series.

Also, I have some good faith in Devolver after their Hotline Miami games.

It was interesting to watch my GFs reaction to a certain character coming into harm who she previously thought had plot armor. I've told her several times no one has plot armor in this series but oh well. It's also cool to see it diverging more and more from the books in some aspects, I guess as much out of necessity as anything else. Some people seemed disappointed with it online but I thought it was a great finale.

Happy Bday to Mrs Blue.

My guess for next season: John Snow is brought back from the dead via the red Priestess, who uses the same Red Priest/Priestess ability used to bring back the guy the Mountain kills repeatedly in the books and briefly in the show,(also killed by the Hound).

I'm guessing: Undead reunion: The Hound, Lady Stark, John Snow, all brought back via various Red Priests or Priestesses. Fire undead vs Ice undead, plus dragons, in the next season! Also random undead Mountain brought back via Maester.

People need to realize that difficulty levels exist for a reason. I finished EW on classic/ironman. No one forces you to play on higher levels than you need to.

Also, they confirmed in the interview that the enemies don't get first shot when they come as reinforcements.

I played through on all the difficulties, at least for the vanilla game. Haven't done the expansion more than once yet. I got distracted by mods. That snake attack appears to be tied to the creature itself(assuming regardless of difficulty?), although there is the new mechanic of carrying home the wounded, so I guess we'll see how that plays out.

Remember, unavoidable deaths lead to save scumming! Any map where snakes can appear will probably make me leave most of my guys in Overwatch and move pretty slowly.

Also I admit to skipping over the non-actual gameplay bits of that video.

Boo, was expecting a followup to 1998 Battlezone

Yeah, what the hell is this rehash of an ancient game?

Battlezone 1 and 2, the RTS/FPS hybrids, were so great! Unfortunately I can only assume they are still in some sort of abandoned legal gordian knot, never again to see the light of day. They aren't even on gog.com yet, although there was a 'free' Battlezone 2 project last time I checked.

It looks really good, but it also looks like there will be some really cheap/cheesy deaths. Ranged tongue attack to insta-kill from the snake alien? Even more random enemy reinforcements than the first game, and they get first shot?

I'll still get it of course, just saying, there will be some raging.

Hrm, this trailer is definitely less impressive than the ealier one.

Surely that's just an alpha/beta stage choice, being able to destroy even small Walkers with a pistol? Seems like a bad choice for the game long term.

Also, this is one of the coop vs bots modes, so it explains why the 2 rebels were owning so easily. Still, grab some cover, maybe.

This is the new gameplay from today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9S0_3Ml9heY

You have to give them credit for depicting exactly what will happen in a game like this: DayZ-style cutthroat greed and betrayal. I think it says something about the online gaming community these days, when corporate marketing is made to use that aspect of gameplay to sell a game.

Wow, if that's the demographic they are going for, fuck that game. Guess I'll pass on this.

Sigh, this looks great. Danger Dog is right though, they are going to monetize/exploit the shit out of this. I'm afraid to see how bad the DLC/Battlepack/Premium/Whatever situation actually gets, I'm guessing approaching $200 this time around.

Still, it does look stupidly fun, sounds great too.

KOTOR Online: Awesome trailers, meh game.

Seriously, I remember seeing their pre-release trailers and being utterly amazed. Then when the game finally went freemium and I actually played it, it was terrible in comparison. It wasn't that bad of an MMO in and of itself, but after 3-4 insanely high quality cgi trailers, and then the game itself is just an iteration of WoW with Star Wars as a setting, I was too let down to play much.

Bioware needs to just have their Star Wars trailer people(or whatever outside studio they hired) make a nice 2 hour movie. I'd see that opening day. Or better yet, a series or something, instead of the kid oriented junk that Star Wars Rebels is.

I'll wait for some up to date gameplay videos and reviews... this game looked so sweet when they first had footage of it, but that was what, three, four years ago? No telling what it's like now.

That looks fucking great!

I kind of got blind sided by the first Dishonored; I'd heard it was pretty good, bought it on sale, and was pretty much blown away. Played the no-kill way of course. Although you'd assume some of those guys who got forcibly knocked out might die after being tossed into random dumpsters, but what can you do?

Interstate 76, oh how you need a remake.

I know, right? Interstate 76 was great back in the day, although I think an updated version(graphically), released today, wouldn't do as well. If you go back and play it, I76 is really simple in a lot of ways, as far as the actual combat goes. The most fun for me was designing your car/truck, actually driving around to kill guys usually led to a lot of circling like a 2d dogfight. They'd have to add more to it, I'd think.

This Mad Max game actually looks pretty good, although I'll probably wait for reviews and a price drop before I get it.

Hrm, I'm tentatively interested. It seems to be headed in the right direction, and mods will probably help you guys worried about Execution animations, plus there's a year or so for them to work on it.

It'll probably turn out well.

Looks pretty good, but I'll probably wait quite awhile for some official patches and user mods to come out. The Steam/Gog backlog is so ridiculous right now I could probably wait for the GotY version of Fallout 4 and still have new (to me) stuff to play.

I did just start playing Wolfenstein Old Blood, and it's extremely good. Although I'm not sure a random metal pipe could survive that much abuse and bloody murder.

Wow, so much for Batman not killing anybody! Machine gun and missile some more cars full of people why don't you, Bats!


Of course I'm sure there is some kluge explanation that all the cars are robots/remote controlled or something.

Also, I guess we're officially back to the good old 3dfx days of vastly different features per game for each card? Great.

It's just such an amazing game. Even for all its minor imperfections it's arguably the best CRPG ever made in both scope and quality.

This is some damned high praise! I'm tempted to buy it even at the measly 10% off gog.com has right now, although the Steam/Gog backlog is getting utterly ridiculous at this point.
