I'm not surprised. When you begin a Kickstarter without a name for your project, you're in trouble.

Except this is precisely how the Double Fine Adventure project was started.

I think the big difference is that Double Fine can point to titles they've released in the last decade that people love. The same can't be said for Romero and crew.

Maybe they can get in on the ground floor of 3D Realm's new pyramid scheme, err I mean investment opportunity.

Remember how cocky and full of hubris they were before release? It's nice to see them get a taste of humble pie.

Amateur hour.

I'm noticing a trend with the Diablo 3 team. When they mess something up, they blame it on bugs. Even if they published a chart that listed the exact values they now say are "bugged".

Honestly I highly doubt the name had anything to do with the failure.

I doubt most people went back to see that they gave it a name. Their initial pitch was terrible. No details, no name, just pure vague bullshit. You can't sell an idea based on your reputation, when no one has played any games you made for over a decade.

And if Doom had been named Shaker, it would have been the same huge success it was, because when Doom came out, there was nothing like it out there. Nothing compared to it.

So after a couple weeks of honeymoon period, what's the assessment of XCOM single player?

It's lives up to the name. Is it perfect? What is? Personally I'm thrilled that a AAA studio released a turn based strategy game, and did a good job of it, so I'm not complaining. I can't help but play this and wish Fallout 3 had been done using this style.

It's not as hardcore as the first game, but frankly after having played UFO Defense around 6 months ago, I seriously think that is a GOOD thing. UFO Defense is a classic, but it is not a perfect game, and had lots of room for improvement.

New Asheron's Call?!?!?!?

I'm still annoyed with how bad they dropped the ball on Asheron's Call 2. AC was/is one of the best MMO's ever. I just can't stand to play it anymore with its 1999 graphics and monthly fee.

Good. The fact that they wanted to patent a fucking shape is just insane. Think about it. They literally tried to claim that they invented a "rectangle shape with rounded corners".

Between their labor practices, and their 'sue to win' mentality, they can fuck off.

Here's a scoop. If you look in the ini files for Xcom you can see references to 60 day DLC called Slingshot, and 90 day DLC called Progeny.

I want a real expansion pack, not these mod quality size DLC's

The unfounded assumptions is strong in this one.

Lets wait for... I don't know.... the DLC to be announced before bashing it shall we

I don't see the unfounded assumption. The first two DLC packs for Skyrim are pretty weak. Thus, he hopes this one has better content in it.

Blizzard should have delayed this game for at least a year. Nothing is going to bring back the launch week numbers.

Personally I still have D3 installed, but between Xcom and Torchlight 2, I just don't even care about this patch.

It's odd to see the shift in the gamer mindset.

Almost 2 years ago, charging $60.00 for a PC game was nearly a scandal on most gaming websites. Now people don't bat an eye at spending $60.00 for the base game, and not a month later spending even more money, as if this was normal. I'm sure Borderlands 2 is fun, but like the first one, it is not worth over $100.00.

Too late now though. Wallets have spoken and this really is the new norm. Now we see the "Season Pass" concept take hold, where you're forking over $30.00 for the promise of content to come at a future date. Gearbox found a new way to one-up this trend by stating that the Season Pass for Borderlands 2 will not cover all of the planned DLC releases. This is not good for the consumer.

Turn based strategy is clearly dead, and no one wants to play that type of game.

Let me know when there is a game to be shown off. This is a java tech demo that takes place in one room. Listening to him rattle off features he "plans" to add does nothing for me, after seeing all of the abandoned ideas in Minecraft.

People all over the net keep saying "yeah it looks like crap but the game looks interesting": What game? Having a 16-Bit CPU emulator in a room with N64 textures, and stencil buffered lighting isn't even close to being a game.

TL2 > D3 in every conceivable way.

It's funny because before they both hit I would never have dreamed that would be true. TL1 was good, but it was no Diablo 2. Oh how the tables have turned.

Same here. I was actually in the pro-Diablo 3 camp until I played it to inferno. I never imagined Torchlight 2 could compete with Diablo 3, but I was wrong.

MS is a victim of their own success. The success of the Xbox360 means that game developers target those system specs. What that also means is that if your PC exceeds those specs there is no reason to upgrade at all. I'm on a machine that was built in 2007. It has a quad core CPU and 6GB of RAM. The video card was replaced in 2010, and it still plays everything I throw at it with no problems.

There is simply no reason to upgrade. Why move to Windows 8, when 7 does everything I need it to? I don't want the Metro UI, so Win8 would be a step back.
