That looks good and atmospheric. Maybe in the spirit of Metro 2033 ? Also seems very hardcore, i'll keep an eye of it.

If you want a 'modern' remake of SS2 that's pretty much Dead Space. The scenario and ending of SS2 are quite grim compared to DS though, but DS adds more personality to the main protagonist.

I'm getting a LOT of entertainment value out of seeing the zealots on both sides of the argument butting heads. Right now I see *that* as the real game

Same here, i hope the actual game will be as fun as watching the fights that revolve around it

Backed immediately, with the $125 house banner. Harebrained are great, Battletech is great, only great things can come out of this.
(edit) oh wow that KS is moving fast, really fast.

Giants was all around great, i hope that one really gives that same feeling of 'i need to play just a bit further..'. Indeed the good writing tied up the game pretty well.

They are talented. They made small gems of games, they can do it again. A mis step can happen to anyone, let them prove they still have it.

I played a lot of Cyberpunk PnP game, also Cyber Generations (a kind of Akira - the RPG), and then Shadowrun which is now clearly superior in scope and depth thanks to many editions and supplements.
Cyber Gen was quite fun, playing kids that were experimented upon / genetically engineered in that brutal world...

also the legacy of the Cyberpunk game is about as pure as you can get when it comes to that genre.. its like one step removed from Neuromancer
Well there was Deus Ex, and the old Shadowrun game (the RPG on console), and newer Shadowrun RPG's. Granted, that's not much at all...

Thief, as a pure Looking Glass game, was all about immersion. That was in good part provided by the forced 1st person view... and the fact you had to rely on your hearing sense to get around guards and such. How can this be achieved in a 3rd person, isometric view ? I have high doubts.

Yeah he's now definitely out of bubblegum. RIP Roddy, you were awesome.
Roddy inspired Duke Nukem (the good one), and They Live is also one of my favorite movies of all times.

its a pretty bizarre phenomena.. its like the externalization of neurosis on a global scale... on the surface its presented like the realization of a creative dream, but in reality is just an exercise in pure cynicism of the most insipid and deleterious sort
Like you say just after, it's more a case of the guy who was supposed to lead and get it done, is drinking his own kool aid. I dont think there is malice, just sheer incompetence at all levels up to the top. Keeping scope on such a project would have required someone with a lot of discipline, i think that is what is lacking here. What is sad is the initial project was definitely doable and had potential, now they have dug themselves in so deep they wont escape unless they dig all the way across
What i'm curious about is how fast they'll run out of funding. They seem to spend a lot in huge media appearances, if i was them i'd be laying LOW under the radar and quietly deliver instead of digging my tomb even further...
Derek Smart making fun of them is adding insult to injury.

While the article is mostly Derek Smart rambling about himself, he's right on the incredibly expanding scope of SC that's been going with a not-so expanding funding - as he mention they are still quite shy from the AAA kind of budget they're shooting for.
Maybe a focused, small colocated team of tight knit veterans could pull off something. Here we're talking about multiple studios spread around the globe, and an off the shelf game engine that is not made for the game genre altogether. Cant see it happening either, and by 2018 when nothing is still delivered the class actions will start and media will go for blood.

Why not revive Eye of the Beholder series, these were better than Bards Tale IMHO.

FAR have always been a must have to properly play KSP. Now for v1.0 we have integrated heat on reentry, with realistic heat transfer, and FAR becomes NuFAR with 1000% more awesomeness (check out the FAR thread on KSP forums for details).
That's a fantastic patch, and that game has really grown up, mostly thanks to its modder community.

Close, but the big difference might be that the character Jayne wasn't homophobic. For example he's turned on, not disgusted by Inara's female clients.
That's because the series let you see his private side. I am ready to bet money on that these extreme right wingers are all into BDSM and other "funny" stuff. So many of them get caught all clad in latex while riding a young boy and shouting insults in german. Happened before

Ballistics was the fastest. Even F-Zero X felt slow compared to it. You could break the sound barrier all with warp-like effects... The gameplay itself though was poor and repetitive. But that speed ! At some point you had to know the layout of tracks since going so fast there was no way you could see anything coming.

Never Alone is an automatic buy. Along with This War of Mine, these are the gems of 2014.

Hardcore and extreme metal can be the same way. I find that if you are a fan of the genre you tend to look more for the nuances that separate one song from another (yes, there IS nuance in extreme metal!). I have gotten pretty good at picking out one Cannibal Corpse song from another!
I'm a fan of Cannibal Corpse too and extreme metal in general, but you have to admit that maybe 90% of the bands out there (especially in U.S.) produce same sounding shit that is just aggressive to the ears without any good reason. That's also especially true for "hardcore" and "trü black" genres, where bands just dont get it and superficially copy the noise, without the music.
