It's a lack of time that's putting me off, not the price or anticipated quality.

I would advise you to get it. It's a great city builder with the twist that you are not playing for profit but for sheer survival of your community. There really is no perfect plan though there are some ideal strategies that do smooth things over over time. It's a great game for you to simply relax playing and watching it evolve.

Quboid, have you tried Banished? What are your thoughts on it if you did?

Glad to see Banished is still hanging on quite well in there.

BTW Blue, Dark Souls II, not III.

You know a crowdfunding campaign is not going to end well when their page is full of typos and grammatical errors.

This reminds me of what happened with Magna Mundi, a shame since East vs. West had a ton of potential.

And it seems dsogaming adds context to those gifs and it's as bad as it was feared it would be.

Good grief, I was really hoping that this would be a great game.

This game can go either way, it'll either be really awesome or really disappointing. I'll be waiting for reviews from the community.

I only have 1 in my block list, Slick. That guy made me break my tradition of never ever blocking/killfiling/ignore anyone ever.

Banished is quite a game, loving it. It's all about the journey. I do agree that it would be nice for the dev to add a substantial content expansion though. Even so, it's definitely going to be in my top 5 games of 2014.

The first review I picked to read was the PC Gamer one. With a score of 79% it seemed pretty positive overall. The next one I read was Gamespot's which was considerably less positive. This is going to be one of those divisive games I guess.

PC Gamer is always like that. Have you read the Rome 2 review? Its full of taffing paid for reviewing, told with rose tinted cheeks.

PC Gamer has become a mockery of itself as a site. I still remember the fucking 94% they gave to Dragons Age 2, proceeded by giving Witcher 2 an 89%.

PC Gamer has become the IGN of PC gaming review sites.

Harshest review so far. Xbone review but 3.5 out of 10.

Speaking of Thief...

Take it for what you will. Apparently Gamespot leaked the review on GameFAQs and quickly removed it.

And Banished is a brilliant game, mix of SimCity with survival. It does need a bit more content though, hopefully this success will encourage the dev to make a sizable expansion.

What, we all gotta get a reach-around just the exact way we want it, too?

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: I bet you're the kind of guy who would fuck a person in the ass and not even have the goddamn common courtesy to give him a reach-around. I'll be watching you!


R. Lee Emery ad-libbed that whole scene. None of it was in the script.

Makes that part of the movie all the more amazing. The actors were really kinda scared of what he would pull next. This, along with Rutger Hauers' tears in rain line, is amongst the best improvisation ever caught on the big screen.

Not sure how well you were scoring on the leaderboard per game but if you think the grunts are useless and the titans boring, I'm guessing not very high.

Wow, congrats, you win the coveted Fucking Idiotic Comment of the Day award. Enjoy.

You know things are truly fucked up when even Techdirt does ann awesome article on these antics.

And, obviously, he gets to the comments there too for the delight of the Techdirt audience!

It looks nice, but is that all you can build? Simple houses and such? It seemed they only had like four or five different things to build.

The snow effects are very cool, though.

You can build quite a few things, actually, but the focus of the game is not in building a huge village but rather a balanced village that can survive famine and winter and cold and plague and a lot of nasty stuff. It's SimCity3 if it was focused solely on the survival of the city.

Personally, I'm loving the game. It has some Dwarf Fortress levels of complexity in the interactions happening in the game. I believe this game will make my top 5 games of 2014 easily.

Wow, what an utterly disgusting attitude from the part of the publisher.

My view of early alpha is this, basically it's like a kickstarter where you get a product immediately instead of waiting. Simply put, if I like the developer, the plan, the idea their pitching after I've done a lot of research about it then I'll be glad to help them fund the game.

However I also agree with what most people have against early alpha. A good start in making early alpha a more solid business model would be to have, in each game's page, a very thorough description from the devs about the game, their plans, etc, much like you find in the average KS project. That would be a good first step.

I'll also chime for Insurgency. Very fun FPS, very tactical, teamwork is a must. Perhaps the best FPS I've played in a long time, it may not pack the graphics but it packs the gameplay and feel in droves.

This study is more a condemnation of horrible "gaming journalism" more than it is of metacritic. Creston is 100% on the spot.
