The story is way shorter than in the first game though, so if you don't procrastinate that much, the game is definitely too short.

Exactly. Also although Prague looked great, it was only one hub to which you returned three times and which was split with a long loading time in the middle too! Compare that to the several real hubs in the older games...

It sounds like a fun mission, but I really wish it got integrated into the main storyline somehow.

So this doesn't really fit in? All other DLCs for both Human Revolution and Mankind Divided were so obviously just cut content to sell later, that it's almost justified the series ended like this because of the developer greed! Just compare them to the Dishonered DLCs, which were real expansions...

This works for Unity but not Source or Source 2?

The writing in Portal 2 is quite possibly the best videogame writing in any game I've ever played. He will be missed.

Didn't Marc Laidlaw leave earlier already? Seems another hint that Valve doesn't care about serious game development anymore! Now it's all about trying to get a headstart in the VR business, payed by their Steam monopoly which gives them free money from the actual games others create anyway...

How would it be that instead of just getting more money from their monopoly while doing nothing, which is how Steam Direct translates to me, if Valve would actually check whatever they sell on Steam for quality or at least make sure it runs how intended to weed out the trash?

Yeah I agree with it being an FPS with a bit of RPG, but "immersive sim" generally means the game simulates an environment and drops the player in it.

I agree on that, but the problem with the DX games, right from the first one, was that the environment was always just a bit too tailored for the gameplay. Best example are the vents that always bring you where you need to go! This was already a problem for immersion in the original game and is even more so in MD. I have no problem with it from a gameplay perspective, but it makes the world seem not real at all!

I finished MD not that long ago and I can't even remember how it ended, that's how lackluster the ending was. That's not hyperbole either, I literally have no recollection.

But isn't this typical for a DX game? I can't remember the endings of any of them, even the first one! I think is was merge with computer or destroy tech or something. What makes it worse is that with DX:IW and DX:MD they start the sequels in a fixed setting so the choice of endings didn't matter anyway!

Not brand new triple AAA looking, but the most complete one yet, free on steam (if you own deus ex) -

Deus Ex Revision

Or as I have been told even better and much closer to the original game: http://www.moddb.com/mods/gmdx

I haven't seen the DX:MD ending yet either, but are these new DX games not expected to end in the original first DX? I mean how many prequels could you possibly do when the ending is already clear?

If Cyanide are as bad as you make them sound, then maybe Paradox wants to stay far away.

Didn't they make the Styx goblin-as-hero stealth game? I never played it, but had the impression that it wasn't too bad.

Also, it's hard not to hope when 90% of the Bloodlines team is working at Obsidian and they are always looking for more work. Lighter

As far as I know only two mayor guys from Troika, Cain and Boyarsky, are working at Obsidian and they are probably busy with Pillars of Eternity II...

The ME3 ending sucked. Did it make the whole game/series complete garbage? No. But it certainly had a big negative impact, and rightfully so.

The funny thing is that ME was pretty much a ripoff of the TV show Babylon 5 right from the beginning and then they did such a worse ending!

Any source on that mob stuff? I'm really curious to read about that if so.

I never heard that, but if I remember correctly the Crytek founders were Turks...

Huh, so Valve are pushing their almost monopoly a bit further down our troats in that everyone buying retail or elsewhere is not allowed to participate in review scores anymore?

It's a battlestar galactica conversion. It's awesome. Those that want more Freespace 2 look no further.

Or if you want something more colorful and bigger, install The Babylon Project which brings the battles of that great TV show onto your PC! The current standalone version should work fine with the Zathras mod, but a new improved release is about to be done.

I really remember the good old days when you could buy a complete and finished game and sometimes expansions were released very much later! This practive of cutting stuff during development to sell it as DLC is annoying me very much!

There was just something about the old west theme or the cheesy special effects that lost my interest.

I watched all episodes, but felt the same. They too obviously tried to force western element into science fiction and had forgotten that Han Solo in SW had already shown how this is done properly, and not with a stupid bullet revolver and cows shitting in the cargo holt ;)!

I liked Serenity, though, and I might give Firefly another chance someday.

Serenity was another big let down for me. Not only because they killed off someone without reason and quite illogically, but because if you really think about it, the main arc would have been the typical government-makes-zombie-virus-plot, only in space...

The trick is to just change the names of stuff and replace all the branding.

This was already tried on Kickstarter, but without the WoD brand it failed. But there is Project Dogmat MMO...

Where can I get info on Prelude?

Planet Vampire!

Have you ever though about more significant graphical and gameplay updates, a full remake or maybe your own project based on VTMB?

As for a remake, when Project Vaulderie started to port the game to Unity 5, it was stopped by a C&D letter from CCP. I don't know if anything like this might be possible with the new IP owner Paradox! As for a bigger project, I am already helping with the Bloodlines Prelude, which is kind of a prequel to Bloodlines and will show how Jack and the Cabbie set the whole thing up!

How many games come to steam and don't get support and/or patched?

I don't know, but I do know that Steam sells VTM:Bloodlines in a version that will not run on modern PCs without a lot of tweaking and never cared about including my patch which fixes this and more. When GOG released the game, they contacted me and their version will run as promised...
