It only takes about 10-15 minutes to get from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. The map scale seems largely out of whack considering California and Nevada are the 3rd and 7th largest states by area. Can you imagine a trip to Rhode Island? If you're not careful, you'll sneeze and blow right through the entire damn state.

I hear what you're saying, but in RL that's a 4+ hour drive. You really want to spend you're entire night driving one route? 15M seems pretty reasonable.

Not if that's essentially the entire length of the map, though... There are drives in ETS2 that take 1.5 to 2 hours. Maybe not everybody's cup of tea, but there are plenty of people who like and want that. It sounds as if that's just plain not possible in ATS.

"Hey, you remember that game that we kickstarted and then delivered with most of its features missing? That game that was going to be on the PC, got kickstarted for the PC, but then we really only worked on the mobile version? Cool! We're making some more vague promises, and offering more people the chance to buy into it again!"

Cool

That said, I didn't enjoy Hong Kong very much. I replayed Dragonfall after finishing Hong Kong, and Dragonfall is twice the RPG that Hong Kong is.

I think the first thing I'm going to do with the mod tools (if possible) is make a "Take Your Time" mod. The one thing I'm not excited about is the "You have 3 turns to get somewhere" crap at the start of every mission.

That turns it from a strategy/tactics game into one of pure luck.

If it's anything like "The Long War" mod for the original, and it seems it's lifting/inspired by that mod a whole lot (Yay!), is that the time pressure is usually there to hand out bonuses for getting lucky/being clever. I think it's because we are all our own worst enemy in Xcom, moving one squadie 3 squares with the rest of the team on over-watch every turn since 1994!

Though I don't see anything wrong with the odd timed "Evac" mission for a bit of tension. Sucks to lose a veteran but war is hell.


I don't mind the occasional mission like that, but it seems that EVERY mission has it...?

Seems fishy all around.

I haven't watched the video, but I don't see anything about not being allowed to talk. He's not allowed to host Ant Simulator-related YouTube videos, or do any Ant Simulator-related stuff, but that's because he resigned and presumably the company owns all those assets and the IP.

Fair enough, poor wording on my part.

That's really cool of them. One of the main negatives against the game was that it was pretty short in the campaign mode, so adding a faction and a campaign is a good move.

Xcom 2 comes out this week, but I think I'll pick this up somewhere after that.

I had to have mine removed simply due to space issues, but the actual removal was such a bleeping hassle (one broke off about a dozen times) that I don't recommend it if it's not necessary.

Man I can't wait for XCOM2. Been itching to play something new thats also pretty decent so I hope it delivers.

Oh, yeah can hardly wait. Got a three day weekend set up. I bought the game plus season pass for just under $55 off GMG. Looking forward to a couple hundred hours of game play over the next few years. Have you heard what they have up thier sleeves as far as the Long War modders? I think they have a mod in the works already.

They've actually got the Long War people working on the mod already, with the actual game's design tools, and I read somewhere that the plan was to have an initial version of the mod out when the game releases. They are very much aware of how well-loved the Long War was.

They're much, MUCH more mod-friendly this time around

Meanwhile my wife's school has to fire 8 teachers next year because they have no money to pay them.

Education in this country is SUPREMELY fucked up.

I trust EA about a dozen times more by now than I do Microsoft. Have had very few issues with Origin, to be honest, they were first with the game guarantee (though I think theirs is still only for their own games, whereas Steam is now for all games?) and they give away stuff for free which is cool in my book.

All in all, I've got few complaints other than that they really just make kind of blah games and DLC everything to death and darkness. Maybe the new Mirror's Edge will be cool, though a few gameplay snippets I saw didn't fill me with much awe.
