anything with a camera needs a mouse to control it.

well it never hurts to have more nice action RPGs.

i'm pretty impressed with the graphics in the trailer coming from an in-house developed engine from a <50 person studio that puts out games quite frequently. can't seem to find a review on it just yet, but the console versions seem to be already leaked out on the net. (who says PC platform has all the pirates?!)

Bought it on GMG for $25

wow, that's cheap... nice!

Mars: War Logs is a pretty underrated game recently released, and was already on sale for just a few bucks. maybe better to wait a year or so and this game might go <$10?

to be honest, I'd rather play an adventure/puzzle/clicker borderlands like this, rather than the fps borderlands

it seems adventure games are making a rival now. in the next few years point and click games will become as trendy as MOBAs are now. lately it looks like FPS games are heading on their way out and RPG/adventure games are in unlike how the gaming landscape was a decade ago.

"[...] And the loot; donít forget the loot!" ... "The loot you grab in Tales will be available to use in other areas of the Borderlands franchise"

^ they mention the loot, but what kind of loot are we gonna be getting? will it work for the Vita version?

0 updates in 15 days, PS3 and PS4 only when PC gamers make up majority of funding source on KS

Uh yeah, not gonna happen.

the reason it cant be on anything but Playstation systems is that the game always used the square, triangle, and circle buttons exclusively. it would be breaking tradition if they went with Xbox controller or PC. tho i would've liked to at least see a Vita version made, i'd prolly still be able to play it on my Vita with PS4 remote play wherever there's a net connection.

I think we poor PC gamers /And gamepad masochists) can find 3 buttons to bind to those 3 buttons Not to mention you can just paint cross, circles and squares on a random button and call it a PS4 controller

I am more worried that they don't give a shit. No updates in such a long time spells doom to a KS.

well from the article there's this being mentioned: [...] ó specifically, Sony systems. That's a decision that has to do with the game's legacy, according to Lesser. "This was a game that Harmonix and Sony made together, so that property belongs on Sony platforms," he said.

maybe $ony is paying them a little bit for them also? (not so "independent", eh) still i think this is worth $20 and will glady fund this Kickstarter. also i think i was in the top 50 rankings online for Amplitude around when it first came out on PS2 and have very fond memories of that game. logged hundreds of hours, and got me listening to electronica music more.

darn, not happy that i missed the $15 early bird for the Amplitude reboot... worth it for $20 now? i did enjoy Frequency/Amplitude a lot back in the day, but playing Rock Band and Guitar Hero games a lot now may have made me bored/sick of them? also i have some weird vision issues that if i stare at the screen of these kinds of games, where the stage is always scrolling down in the same direction, then after i look away i see movement where everything is shifting and moving down and get a head ache.

It seems Bitmap Brothers either have, or are trying to become the biggest franchise milker in the games industry.

Sure everyone loves pointing to Call of Duty there, though even each CoD is a new game however much it lacks innovation, whereas Bitmap Brothers at best slaps on a few new textures (mostly regarding the GUI) on an ancient game and expect people to eat it up like hot-cakes. These things aren't even "HD" remakes which are already a milking money grab no matter how great the a once was.

Taking this "Z" as an example the biggest difference between the original, which is approaching 20 years, and the new release when looking at screenshots of the newer on steam, is that the GUI map has changed. Pretty much the same goes for "The Chaos Engine", talk about kicking Call of Duty's arse when it comes to milking something.

Don't even get into them milking Speedball because that would make your head turn trying to keep track of all the remakes. The boldest of which was a complete and utter failure which could be seen coming from a year away even before they started talking about their money grubbing micro transaction ideas. Before you try saying Bitmap Brothers had nothing to do with that version "Mike Montgomery from Bitmap Brothers is supervising all steps in the development of the game".

How Bitmap Brothers still has anything remotely resembling respect from anyone is beyond me, that coming from someone who enjoyed some of their games once upon a time.

lol! relax, bro... i appreciate them releasing old games. if they make money with rereleasing their old games then i'd say there's nothing wrong with that. and it makes business sense to always put games at a higher price and then put them on sale so ppl will want to get it thinking they're getting a deal. i never played Z, but read about it in magazines of the 90s and always wanted to check it out. was always more of a C&C guy.

"iOS7 style changes coming to Mac OS X"

Cool, now all the hipster Windows 8 haters have something new to complain about. The general hipster uses Mac OS X for their desktop (because they've abandoned Windows), and Android phones because the iPhone is too "mainstream". So now what will they do? Switch to Chromebooks? Yup! lol

You know a true hipster will say "I stopped sing windows and OS x years ago. I make my own locally sourced and organic OS at home."

gimmie some of dat home grown OS, dawg...

I'll call that lucky Blue. We've had 5 days of rain here over in Southern Ontario, it's overcast now and they're calling for even more rain and T-storms today, with more rain tomorrow. I say if you can BBQ something up in the morning do it.

And just so the weather can grind it in...or as my grandfather used to say: "And God said, let Canada be pissed on..." 2 days of sunshine forcast on Monday/tues, with 5 more days of rain. I think May is the new April here.

yes, exactly! the weather here in Toronto has not been the greatest so far. tho it was sunny so far today but still windy and cold.

The only question is, will Kevin Spacey be playing Call of Duty in S3 of House of Cards, and will he encounter VIRTUAL KEVIN SPACEY?!?

if that happened, he would be all like "WTF?!?!..." and crack in the space-time continuum.

SpectralMeat wrote on May 2, 2014, 14:46:
Sadly Creston a lot of people doesn't care about that stuff. For one thing they buy these games for the MP. How else do you think Act. can make record profits on DLC map packs?
I personally have zero interest in SP when it comes to CoD. Same thing I can say about BF games.
What they should do is make the SP and MP 2 separate games and let people buy them separately. $39.99 for SP or MP only or $60 for both.

That's exactly what I said, actually.

I can't imagine that there are that many people who buy CoD for their SP campaigns, it's MP only, but if they go MP only then Activision has a hard time justifying a $60 price tag. And the campaign really doesn't cost that much to make. It's just a pure profit motivator, really.

i like to rent or borrow these games to play just for the singleplayer campaign. not a fan of CoD's multiplayer, and prefer CS and BF series instead for that.

Either way, not giving any more money to ZeniMax after the latest bullshit, I mean... how low can they go.

...what did they do? the lawsuit thing with Facebook/OR guys? well that shouldn't really affect the games themselves.
