Nice to see Antichamber there.
Also, Arma series still occupies a spot. How long has this been, i remember seeing Arma II since forever, now Arma III. I could understand for the previous opus that people got it for DayZ, but how about the III, by itself it's a very hardcore, niche game.. i find this interesting.

I did get a lot of mileage out of the original Dark Project intro video, which was all they dribbled out (plus a very vague webpage) for a long, long time. Must have watched that thing a hundred times.
But to be honest, the original Dark Project (title of Thief 1) videos and 2 and 3 too were animated paintings, which were both original and very full of atmosphere. A very thick, dark, oppressive atmosphere. I didnt get this feeling from the CGI movie they just posted.

Cant wait to see the result, and if they kept the incredible atmosphere of the series. And the animated paint cut scenes as well. And Garrett's voice actor. And the very powerful, evoluted 3D sound engine. And the "no kill, ever" mode..

I didnt have that much fun since Titan Quest + Immortal Throne ! And that says a lot.
Finally the maze-like passive skill tree is not so impressive after getting used to it, and the active skill build was IMHO more interesting in TQ/IT. Here the gem system sounds like a good idea but is quickly limited, and the skills lack the huge variety that was found in TQ. Otherwise the game is pretty well executed now, grim, intense, very dark in mood (especially the last act !), and musics are top notch (again, act 3 really shines).
There is an obvious missing act 4 i guess (and it goes a lot like TQ here, on many aspects), this will hopefully come later.
That last patch brought a bit more shine and IMHO it's already quite superior to Diablo 3, or otherwise put it's what D3 should have been.

Regarding the article, i know that OLED displays with refresh rates at 240Hz do exist as they are integrated in modern cameras today. Olympus next camera should even push the limit on this (probably 240Hz still, but higher resolution). There is not such a huge leap between OLED viewfinder technology and OLED VR display technology..

I'll join the round of applause. I prefer them to concentrate on the quality of the single player story.

I played the first Nexus:TJI and back then had a hard time to get past the first mission, but past that it became more and more enjoyable, with a nice story unfolding through the campaign. I will certainly watch this new installment closely.

Yeah actually with over 1 million copies they are in AAA territory already. Please guys continue doing games with such a strong artistic direction, and try not to fall into the trap of dumbing down stuff like other "AAA" game companies tend to do.

I remember when FASA introduced the Horrors on the SR universe. I was an Earthdawn GM (and I still stick even today to my opinion it was the best original fantasy setting ever made for RPGs) and wondered how the future Earth in Shadowrun would be able to fend off those fuckers.
Basically, they dont. The very few people who are really aware of this menace and how to fight them (and the related use of filament magic) are Harlequin & co, who are not taken seriously by anyone to start with. So apart from a certain cyber-dead great dragon who's busy fending them no one cares. I am an Eearthdawn GM too btw And i enjoyed playing through the SR2 campaigns a lot. SR3 not as much..
Anyway, "fighting one horror" was a campaign-long scenario, or even a complete suicide mission (or one for the crazy horror hunters in ED). Dont think it's much suitable for a classic RPG style, if you really want that just play Amnesia it's the closest to the experience it would be.
The more classic "infiltrate / exfiltrate / hit / steal .." run scenarios would be nice already, and i hope for a good campaign editor so we can get some epic ones in the future (ohh that Arcology campaign, memories..)

The music concept is excellent: the took the two best composers able to do this (Huelsbeck and Machinae Supremacy), they made the same tunes but with different styles (synth pop / metal) and when you switch worlds, the tune style changes.. if they pull it flawlessly, it will be really awesome. They sold me the project when i heard the music in the video.

News Comments > Spector Calls Out Carmack & Sweeney
28. Re: Spector Calls Out Carmack & Sweeney Aug 17, 2012, 16:10 Zoom
Mr Spector, you did 3 games that are on top of the best games of all times, granted. But it was long ago. And since then, what did YOU do mr Spector ? At least Carmack was productive for the gaming industry, doing new rendering engines. I always thought that ID games were just quickly thrown-together demos for their engine ?
Anyway, I can see the point that Warren Spector tries to make but really, what with the non-related Disney praise.. He's a dinosaur now, and his ego has made him become irrelevant.

I got to think about it, did Frozenbyte ever publish a dud ? They are kind of low profile, but everything they do is golden. I finished almost every game from them (still have to do Trine 2) and they were gorgeous, well finished, with a perfect gameplay..

Is there an antecedent of a company managing to own the rights to a common noun that belongs in a dictionnary?
Microsoft tried this long ago with "Windows" and got laughed out of court.

Same, the music theme brought up good memories. Undoubtedly a day one purchase.

Yeah this one reminds me of Omikron as well... let's see if it lives up to the standards. As usual console first means compromise on something, usually map size, interaction, character models...

It is a massive waste of money.
My thoughts exactly.
And game voice acting is something else entirely. There are some good names and they are not in this list. Although i suspect Brad Dourif might be able to pull it..

I think the steam stats got reset at some point because a lot of games i finished are counted as never played with 0 hours (half life 2 etc.) which is quite untrue.
