They could get even more funding by offering something around the $15.00 tier. There are many other TBS kickstarter games that offered that tier, even if limited, yet these guys said they didn't think it was fair to have a tier at that level, especially a limited one.

They're also doing the Space Hulk Kickstarter too.

Unless I'm not seeing something you are, Space Hulk isn't a Kickstarter, it's a game in development, and the last preview I saw it looked pretty promising too.

sorry about that. I have too many Kickstarters on my mind. but yeah, the company doing this is working on the Space Hulk remake.

I'm not familiar with their games:

They also don't have a wiki page that I can find.

I think I'll wait and see how the campaign goes in the next few weeks.

They're also doing the Space Hulk Kickstarter too. As much as I would like to pledge, I'm disappointed they don't have a cheaper tier similar to other turn-based games I pledged to. I asked and they responded saying that a limited tier wouldn't be fair to everyone. Rolleyes

I haven't played any of these since Divine Divinity. I don't know what it was but the DD was just dreadful to me. Didn't care for the gameplay, mostly.

I got in on the beta and it's a lot of fun. Good cross between HoMM and Warlock/Civ games.

They could work on it for another dozen years and it still wouldn't be right.

Right to you or the masses? They can't cater to everyone but from what I've read in the RPS preview and from other places, it's going to be as good as we can get to MoM before a proper sequel is made.

Ugh, that looks awful. Oh well, guess we'll keep waiting for a proper remake.

Hence the "work in progress" part. The Devs have been chatty with people on there and I like their ideas. I actually funded because it did remind me of the old Master of Magic days and I think the Devs will keep to the spiritual successor of it.

Even better are the Cicada shells that are left behind when they shed them. Had hours of fun freaking out classmates with them.

Thunder Wolves? Really?

Thunder Wolves?

"Guys! I've got it! We'll make a helicopter game! It will be awesome, like...like Airwolf and Blue Thunder combined! Yeah! THUNDER WOLVES!"

Well, Sega did have a helicopter game years ago called Thunder Blade. Were you cursing them back then for that name too?

I feel as if there are some "lies" being spread around about the AI in S:GW2

Some enemies will completely ignore their partners slumping to the ground mere feet away from them, as long as their back is turned. And yet, oddly, a single missed shot hitting the roof of a wooden shack will not only cause every single enemy in the area to notice it immediately, but also be able to instantly spot you in your camouflaged sniper position miles away, and attack you en masse leading to a likely death.
All of that hasn't happened to me once, and I'm playing through a second time and still none of that.

He didn't review the best part, the multiplayer!

As for story, what do people expect from a military game? I mean honestly. Just stop reviewing the story of military games, they're all the same - an excuse to shoot bad guys.

I agree with the reviewer's comments there. I just finished it last night and yes, I noticed that, esp. in the Bosnia levels where you are crawling through the darkened library and the enemy snipers don't even have thermal imaging on them, yet they can spot you across the way.

You would think that someone getting shot behind you makes enough noise that you would turn and look. But the shots I did miss, caused enemies around the area to look for where the shot came from. Very glitchy AI. Not as good as Sniper Elite V2.

Sorry to hear about those 6xx series. 5xx series here and not a single issue so far...
I'm an old skool gamer so I don't have much time to game daily or even weekly, so this title will last me for a month or so I can tell, but I'm enjoying every short minute of it while it lasts!

I have a 660ti that crashed a lot, but reverted to the 310.90 drivers and no crashes. Glad to see they fixed it this quick.

I'm still annoyed that Anno 2070 has (had?) an always-on requirement. I passed on an Anno game for the first time. I think I heard they were patching the requirement out but I don't know if they delivered.
They haven't.


That and it's 3 machine activation limit are why I never bought it, despite it looking really neat...would love to play it, but not on those terms.



They did remove the always on requirement.

EA should have just done the right thing and made this offline with an online MP component. I hope they do revert because I would gladly by the game.

I know the following is just my little bubble..."Jivaro Island" if you will...but here are my observations on this fiasco:

I know nobody who has been able to play the game to their own satisfaction and actually have fun. I know of a few people that have been able to get enough time in to see some potential, but that just pisses them off more when things come to a grinding halt via crash or disconnection.

All I can say is thank you to Blizzard and Diablo 3 for teaching me the lesson that kept me from buying this game and any future games that require always-on connections for single player gameplay.

Side note and unrelated "technically": Is an always-on connection required for the most recent Anno and HoMM games or is it just a "check" when you launch the game?

For Anno, it checks and limits to three installs. The latest patch removed the limitation of counting an activation if you swapped out a graphics card for a different one:

Too late, the damage is already done. If you have always on DRM you either have a good launch or you get remembered forever as an example of why this doesn't work.

The thing people remember most about D3 is error=37 and the queues.

Yet, people will still buy it like they did with D3. I don't see them reverting back their business model, unfortunately and we'll still see the online required component for years to come.

The funny thing is that despite the problems with this game, people will buy it and the SP MP online crap will move forward to other games.
