Looks neat but it seems really strange to me why they aren't using smooth voxels instead of the typical Minecraft bricks. For example of smooth voxels, take a look at Planet Explorers. Brick voxels are fine for buildings but in this gameplay video they are SUPER jarring when looking at them on terrain (0:33 seconds into the video), especially when the rest of the game looks like they're going for a realistic look instead of something retro.
Agreed.

Platform unification was bound to happen, the PC was too fragmented to support going forward and we were seeing the slow death of the PC gaming industry before digital platforms.
"Platform unification", what on earth do you mean by that? and what do you mean the PC was too framented to support going forward?

After Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, which I really enjoy and love, I'm not going to really throw City Interactive any more bones. They need to step up and support that game.

This is the third game they have announced in development. I have doubts these people can deliver.

Ok, have fun going backward in time but I'll keep most of my modern conveniences thanks and who are we kidding, you won't give them up either I have zero desire to track down manual patches from mirror servers and keep track of people through 10 different messaging programs. The DRM portion of Steam is quite benign and the convenience the service affords combined with the product prices make it irrelevant.
I already buy games outside of Steam, lots and lots and lots.

It doesn't take long to go to the official site or gamershell or filefront etc. for patches.

And did you really ever have 10 different messaging programs, no... there was what 4? at most that were popular back in mid/early 2000. Skype is the best thing out there at the moment.

Plenty of good sales, actually all the good sales are now outside of Steam. Amazon and GMG have them beat and have done for at least 18 months.

By all means, use Steam but why should games be tied to it?

I like cell shading, it can be done really well like Gunslinger looks, this looks Okay, could be better but the animations look horrible.

Will be waiting for a demo or some gamer gameplay footage I think.

Remember kiddies, DRM is only good if it's Valve's. At least that seems to be the message around here.

Not sure if you've ever bothered reading any threads about this topic but I'll summarize:

1) DRM is bad.
2) Steam's non-DRM features are good.
3) Steam's good features outweigh the downsides of its DRM.

That's why people like Steam. It's not really rocket science. Standalone DRM is completely worthless, as it offers no benefits to the consumer. Steam offers plenty of benefits to the consumer so the consumer is far more tolerant of the DRM.
People who trade freedom for security and convenience are fools. Why forcefully put shackles on someone when you can get the fools to willing do it themselves.

"I like all my games in one spot", like the games folder under D drive or H drive or whatever you want to call it?

"But I can chat to my friends", like on Skype or the telephone?

DRM is always bad, you have to believe that

13 missions is kind of on the low side. Been looking forward to an arcade like spiritual successor to Desert Strike and Jungle Strike, but 13 missions is erm...very meh...
Depends how long each mission is, most games are 10-12 missions, these days.

Ubisoft's PC games would sell more if they just ditched Uplay completely and switched to Steamworks. Also, simultaneous release dates with the console versions makes a huge difference too.
I disagree and there is no facts to back up what you say any way lol.

I have absolutely no problem with Uplay, it's kind of okay. I'm tired of Valve and Steamworks. I don't even remember the last game I actually bought through Steam... but plenty of Steamworks games. I don't want all my games in Steam. I don't want ANY of MY games tied to any DRM thing. Always look for the DRM free alternative if I can.

The mass amount of stupid people that buy a steam copy of a game on gog.com amazes and saddens me.

I like Ubisoft. I do not give them more than $5-$10 for games with bad DRM though. I think I've bought more from them than any other one publisher recently and there is plenty more that I want to buy.

Notably, Metacritic forces game devs to look at an aggregate of gamer's scores. Something that game devs generally dont bother doing or dont like doing.

And there it is on one web page that EVERYBODY knows about in the gaming industry.

That aggregate gamer score doesnt express everything important of course, but it says something about the desirability of a particular game to consumers.

Metacritic for all of its faults offers insights into the game consumer's mind that arent offered in any other way.

Warren should realize that metacritic can be a useful tool for game devs, if taken with a grain of salt.


I use it as a jumping off point for various industry reviews, but there's no way in hell I'd read the end user side...


Yeah but say a game you were thinking about buying got 50% user score on metacritic. IE half the users who tried it wrote unfavorable reviews on it. Wouldnt that strike you as particularly damning? You can say a lot of things about particular reviews and 0 point reviews and 10/10 reviews, but the average score rarely lies when you have a large enough sample.

Note: Im talking about user reviews, not paid 'professional' reviews.
No because people just vote 0 or 10 these days.

It should just be did you enjoy the game or not. That's all people want to know. If they enjoy XX game with they enjoy this XX game. People will make up their own mind about price (I hope/believe).

You just said that 0 or 10 reviews are bad, but then said it should just be enjoy or not. Wouldn't 0 or 10 equate to the same thing? You're asking for a binary answer while decrying binary answers.
LMAO!

SHHHH!!!

Moving on

It's my first day.
