It also GOG shipped and is currently available for $11.69

Where's Rodney Recloose? It also looks like a bit of a grind.

Guys, guys...can't we all just unite in our hatred of this really shitty, clearly a scam kickstarter????? Where $50,000 magically makes a game on PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, Windows, Mac AND Linux?


Wii U? BACKED!

Weird Al...may god bless your heart for everything you have done all these years.

Awesome. I'm glad someone educated him on monetising vids on the net. As much as I hate that word. Vaguely remember his last stuff being leaked early, so this was the best possible way to do it.

I'll give credit where credit is due. I loved Unreal and don't really care how good or bad the people that worked on it were at PR. Going through some of his answers he is spot on in some areas.

It would be easy to say that a small group of folks are making a lot of noise, but they're doing so because they've asked politely a number of times in the past, and the devs never acknowledge them, or just say they're troublemakers. They literally insult the folks that are most interested in the project, and want more detail/answers.

Rather baffling...


Oh. It's that bad? What a shame. Was looking forward to a new Stalker.

First Epic game I've looked forward to since U2, of which I was sorely disappointed. This looks like fun though.

Seems they haven't pushed that far past the 33k mark. Been stuck there at least a week.

Are there any zombie standalone games that AREN'T in alpha status, or complete crap?

There's a spin off of the Dayz mod called Epoch. Decent fun, lots of crafting, base building etc. More feature rich than the standalone. It's pretty clunky, like all things Arma though.

At one point in time I wanted a proper sequel to the original Unreal campaign, not the crap that was Unreal 2. Now, I'd like to see a reboot/remake of the original Unreal.

This multiplayer game they are making I don't care that much about, but I will probably at least try it.


While I liked UT 1, I'd love to see a reboot or something in the same vein as Unreal 1. No other title in the series was as memorable imo.

Well this better be a whole hell of a lot better than Of Orcs and Men because that title was fucking awful. Uninstalled it probably around half way through.

I can never see Styx now without thinking of Homer on the River Styx

I can't see it and not think of this

F2P. The worst model ever. It just doesn't work.

1. People add an almost irrational amount of worth to a product they actually have to pay a relatively large sum for;
2. Pay 2 Win -- F2P games are dominated by obsessed lowlifes within days, which are few and far in between which makes it a target group you really don't want to target;
3. See point 1. Can't stress it enough. Human psyche is a bitch and it's one of the reasons smartphones can be so retardedly expensive and actually sell.

I think because point 1 more easily masks the amount people realise they're spending. It's nickle and dime to the extreme. F2P has basically brought a mutant version of the arcade model right into our living rooms.

When the market is saturated with these games I can't help but think it will be dominated by very few big players, while the rest will be toast. Players will drop in to see what each experience is about and if it doesn't immediately grab their ever dwindling attention span, they just move on to something else, with no money invested or lost.

[edit] Hm, maybe I'm over exaggerating that end just a little.

I don't know if it's your kind of game style but I love MechWarrior Online and DIII in 3D.

Thanks. Not sure why I missed the DIII bandwagon till now. Will have to pick it up at some stage.

For all those who like to play in 3D, Trine is a must have. It is simply gorgeous.

True. Generally dislike almost all 3d I've seen so far, except for Trine 2.

The people that have the oculus rift for this game will undoubtedly have the better experience. I mean, when things get really scary you can always just look down and see your bewbs for comfort

Oooh a Trespasser reference
