About time I get to shoot some ignorant, bible-thumping, backwater rednecks for a change. Haven't been really able to do that since Redneck Rampage (though Borderlands 2 has a hilarious series of missions where you can kill a bunch of them for some whiskey-drinkin', gold-hoarding Irishmen). And my excitement has nothing to do with exacting a small amount of retribution on southerners for being terrorized on Memphis roadways daily by dumbass rednecks in their F150's driving like fucking idiots. Shut up, it's not!

Yeah I forgot how moddable NWN was built to be. I don't know shit about modding so I don't really know. For what it's worth I remember playing a few mods for Diablo 2 and Baldur's Gate, but that's as much as I know about modding 2D games.

It's a sign of the era that NWN was developed in that it can look so graphically inferior to older games like Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale. At the time devs were using 3D over 2D because they could, not because they should. I'm glad that era is gone - games like Divinity and Pillars of Eternity look good now and still will for many years.

I get your point, Divinity is a 3d engine though, they just lock it in iso.

True, but the point is that it's using a good 3D engine and in a manner that won't look butt-ugly in 10 years like NWN does now. Sure it will be easily surpassed by that time, but it will still look good enough. I loved NWN but damn it's ugly. Those screenshots - ugh.

I can understand Rockstar being reluctant to ban cheaters. I mean look at all the dolphins and whales they'd be losing. If you are only a non-paying minnow (who has the unmitigated gall to play the game without paying extra for the privilege) than you are a cheater of the highest order and the worst kind there is - cheating Take 2 out of its continuous revenue stream.

It's hard to make a "live service" out of a single player game, but as long as it is solo friendly that might work for me. But EA... I have faith that they'll screw this up.

Fanatical is requiring that you link your Steam account to them for this offer. That makes this a 'pass' for me.

I did it a while ago. For what it's worth it has been painless.

News Comments > EA and AI, E-I-E-I-O

I love any multiplayer game with bots if they are tunable (because telling a human player to suck a little more so you can beat them once in a while doesn't generally work) but the AI thing makes me concerned. Depending on how good the AI is at learning and adapting, it won't be long before the AI bots are owning my old, unskilled ass just as badly as your average 12 year-old does now in Overwatch.

But seriously this would be a major boon for players for older multiplayer only games that have lost their population to the new hotness of newer multiplayer games.

Never been a racing fan myself because I find watching them as dull as dishwater. Oddly enough I enjoy playing their game equivalents (except for NASCAR - driving in a circle turning left is just not engaging), albeit with every newbie assist available turned on. Can't remember if I've ever played 2015 but I know I played a couple in the F1 series. The 2017 version is on sale for $18 if anyone is interested.

From the perspective of someone on the outside looking in, it seems that Stardock has been trying to be amicable and reasonable and Paul and Fred are acting like a couple of unhinged douchebags. As to who is in the right, I am not sure, but it definitely seems the ownership of the Star Control IP is more complicated than they are trying to claim.

Maybe I'm becoming too much of a cynic in my old age but I think it's telling that the first thing they mention in talking about content they are looking to add to the game is cosmetic stuff. That ought to be at the bottom of the list seeing as the general consensus is that the game is lacking stuff to actually do. Not sure people will care too much about how they look if there's not enough stuff to do to keep them engaged.

Not just a Republican thing. But the reality no lawmakers were ever going to actually do anything be it on violent games or guns or anything else; they were just making noise about things until public outrage moved onto something else like politicians always do.

...and people are raging against loot boxes

Not speaking for anyone else, but for me paid DLC (even something so egregiously expensive as the DLC for Warframe) where you pay money for a thing and get the thing is still a more honest transaction than having a gambling mechanic to get the same thing with no upper limit in what could be spent obtaining it. As crazy as it is to me to spend $140 on a slice of in-game content, you would spend a hell of a lot more trying to get the same stuff with loot boxes.

Well at least they could have rented some extra servers for launch month.

Blues tends to be ... lets call it a more discerning crowd so despite people's impressions I still would like to try it out as I'm far less discerning than most.

Of course you'll try it out, Prez. It seems you try out every game xD

Haha yes I really do love trying out new games (just not not the no-effort drek that Steam routinely shits out of it's bowels on a weekly basis). More often than not I find games that tend to get downvoted for being buggy, repetitive, or boring to my liking. I can't tell you how many games that have "mixed " or even "mostly negative" reviews on Steam that I've played and got considerable enjoyment out of.

Prez, Quantum Break isn’t multiplayer, so it can be transferred elsewhere. It’s also not made by an internal Microsoft studio.

Fair enough - you're probably right. If there is any game that would make me try the Windows Store again it would probably be State of Decay 2 given how much I enjoyed the first one. I guess we'll see.

Put it somewhere other than the execrable Windows Store and I'll give it a whirl as it looks like it might be fun. Of course if it's anything like Guns of Icarus being on a team of jackasses can spoil every game session regardless of how good the core game is.

Not really sure what the issue is with the Windows store, but since this is a game published by Microsoft, it’s the only place you’ll ever see it. You don’t see new games from EA and Ubi on Steam (if you do, it still automatically fires up their respective stores to launch). People wanted competing stores, this is what you get.

The windows store is fairly innocuous. You don’t have to open it to launch any of their games. The cost of it being “windows store only” is that it won’t drop in price anytime soon, but it does offer crossplay with the Xbone, which means there will be more players later in its life than if it were PC only.

I didn’t find it to be terribly engaging. I’m prolly in around the $20-$25 mark though.

I don't mind using Uplay and Origin as well as Steam. It's the Windows Store that I have a problem with. I tried to buy Gears of War 4 on it some time ago. When I was finally able to even find it using the store's abysmal search function, after multiple attempts all I got was frustration. Never again. And Quantum Break started out as a Windows 10 Windows Store exclusive but it later was released on other platdorms, so it is not an impossibility that the same will happen with other "Play Anywhere" exclusives. If it doesn't, oh well, I'll survive.
