Now they just need to delete the 2GB of unused 720 video... Seems so wasteful for HDD space.

Holy shit, they released a (provisional) screenshot

Looks like a modern 3D version of the infinity engine games! Holy crap, if the final game looks like that it will be amazing.

I just hope they have the engine running decently on PCs this time around.

They also need to open the game up more like Vice City and San Andreas were. GTA IV lacked most of the things that made those two games so cool.

It won't matter how good it is if the engine still sucks though, so I really hope they've gotten it sorted out by now.

I like the option to do so not be told by government I can't.

I must have missed the part where MS was government.

I'm going to not use Windows 8 so hard!

Seriously, Win7 works fine, so why would I want to downgrade to the new version of Vista?

You do realize that at least 4 out 5 kickstarters will fail. That is pretty much throwing your money away. Fools always flock to a losing deal.

Yes, all based on the statistical analysis you pulled out of your ass.

I don't buy it. PC gamers wanted a strategy follow-up. That is why there was such a negative backlash to the shooter game. I didn't pre-order this game to prove a point about the shooter, or from marketing hype.

I bought this game because I've waited for over a decade for a proper X-Com sequel.

In the late 1990's X-Com was anything but a niche game. The first time I played it was on a Playstation console. It is one of the greatest strategy games ever made. It was on multiple platforms, sold well, and won praise from every sector of the gaming press.

It's funny. When they announced the Xcom shooter, one of the genius suits at 2K made this comment:

"Turn-based strategy games were no longer the hottest thing on planet Earth," Hartmann said. "But this is not just a commercial thing - strategy games are just not contemporary."

Funny how Xcom Enemy Unknown has been number one on the Steam top seller's list for nearly a week now, beating out shooters Borderlands 2, and Uncharted.

I guess gamers like strategy games after all. I'll bet that guy got his job just because he has an MBA. I doubt someone that would make a comment like that has ever even played games.

I've been using KDE 4.8 for a little over a month now on my Slackware machine, and it has really grown in to a great desktop. Sometime this weekend I'll have to take the plunge and install 4.9.

Too much time and effort, for very little real world payoff.

MMOs defined.

Hobbies defined...

I disagree of course... I think entertainment/joy/pleasure/etc are a good real world payoff : ) Otherwise, all anyone could ever justify using their time on, is exercise : )

-Alamar

Don't take me out of context. I'm speaking through the lens someone who led a raiding guild that raided 5 days a week for years. Managing the roster, keeping track of loot, keeping egos in check, etc, gets to be more like a job than a hobby.

It's a job you don't get paid for, and are rarely thanked for. I'm all for having hobbies, and I still play games constantly. I'll just never run a large raiding guild again.

Also: I really hope there are missions that take place on farms with cornfields, like the original. Haven't seen anything that looked like a farm setting.

Really looking forward to this, and I hope it doesn't disappoint. I also pre-ordered. Then I managed to trade off my extra copy of Civ 5 for Natural Selection II pre-order, so this will be a great gaming month.

If people are still having fun with it, then good for them.

Personally I raided for 3 years, and led a raiding guild for 1.5 of those years. I've had enough of MMOs, no matter what they are. For me I'm glad to be out of the scene. Too much time and effort, for very little real world payoff.

Bioware is really nothing more than a logo for EA to slap on game boxes at this point. We all knew this is how it would end, when Bioware sold out to them.

Point of irony: Diablo 3 sold as well as it did, on the back of Diablo 2, which had a proper single player mode.

I predict any expansion for Diablo 3 will not come close to the original sales for the game. Blizz got fat and lazy, and I don't think they realize how much damage Diablo 3 did to them.
