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...

News Comments > The Evil Within and Rage Sequels Possible

I liked Rage well enough, though for me it got badly ruined by the terrible Megatexture engine. The hideous amounts of pop-in and god-awful textures when up close just really soured the experience.

Yeah, I had the same impression when I first played it on a dualcore but on my i5 with a decent NVIDIA card it look beautiful with no pop-ins anymore! It was the one game when Caramack released something for which the hardware wasn't ready.

Rage had IDs fun shooting mechanics in it but it was a terrible story. Remember that lack of ending like the game was release 6 months too early because they were too broke to finish it?

Yes, the game was released unfinished which wasn't id's fault but probably Bethesda pushing it out of the door. But it had a nice story at all and cool characters that you could actually talk to, which was more than any other id game had before!

If it weren't for GOG and other small sites, Steam on PC would already be pretty much a closed platform...

There's a difference between closed and choice, Steam has always been a choice.

Really? Nowadays even when you buy a retail game most of the time you need to register it on Steam to make it work. The only exceptions are some publishers trying to pull off the same thing like with Origin and GOG without any DRM. No wonder Microsoft wants a piece of the cake!

This. This a million times.

Then you will be 100% dependent of Valve which are known to be as much a money hungry company as Microsoft...

This isn't a conspiracy theory. Microsoft wants a closed platform. They want all the money and the death of their competition.

You mean like Valve? For which having Steam as quasi monopoly wasn't enough so they wanted to take over the whole PC game world with their SteamOS.

Except GOG is the real closed platform. Try talking with some indy devs who were flat out refused with no reason given... Steam doesn't pull such bullshit. You pass Greenlight = you get on Steam.

Yeah, and we all know how many bad games made it onto Steam because all Valve cares about is money and not game quality. I guess GOG is just avoiding this for now...
