They have walked all over these IPs, Deus Ex and Theif with hubris and bad decision after bad.

I can't really disagree with that. I didn't think the ending to the most recent was horrible, but it was clearly lacking. And if they walk away now, for a break? That's a hell of a bridge to burn...
I probably shouldn't be posting in this thread, since I haven't played MD. Thanks for not spoiling, the ending. It's too bad from your tone, you'd think after HR, sticking the ending would be important.

Whoever has been leading Thief and DX should be canned, they clearly don't understand or care about the franchise's future. They seemingly eliminated 30% of their audience (females) and another 20% PC gamers (might not apply to MD), with just 2 bad decisions. Probably killed 40% of their sales and longevity due to no modding.

I really liked Venetica, it had a unique story, quests and puzzles for an action RPG. Looking forward to their next title and hoping it a little more moddable. Sadly, Venetica needs Texmod, same way Tomb Raider does.

His defense was a complete fraud. Both his parents being ex cops, saved his ass.

Don't know if that's true. The other guy got 18 months. More than 9, but not the numbers you're suggesting, either. I guess part of it is because they can't prove either of these guys was the uploader?
I don't really follow it either, it's just the defense was so fraudulent, how could their not be more going on? Firstly the whole addiction I said was a fraud. The internet has more porn, than someone could wank off too for 1000 years. How could an addiction cause him to harm others, when he has more than he could want for 10 lifetimes, for FREE.

Unless you have some insight, otherwise. He clearly did it for profiteering and ego. Hacking and trying to sell photos of women who's careers at least partly depend public perception, has never been listed in the porn addiction medical journals. Also, weren't these guys actually trying to blackmail the stars to get their photos back.

Secondly, maybe his parents didn't help. Or maybe after 20+ years of dealing with the justice system, they knew which judge to get their son's case to. Or which retired prosecutor to hire as a defense attorney. Or maybe, they actually worked with both them for years.

You guys are looking at it all incorrectly and one like an arrogant ass. Imagine if it was all the women you knew, your mother, sister(s), girlfriend(s) and wives.

I won't lie I would have masturbated to those as well.
That's a whole different kind of problem.

One shared by many. "The Internet is for porn!" after all, donchya know?

Maybe you didn't read it clearly? Looks like to me, he said he's masturbating to his mother and sister. That's the part he quoted but if that's what you guys are into, ewww. Puke

I like ME universe but not the corporation running the show. I'm betting origin only, main characters sold as dlc and probably that new drm, which I've so far never installed or played any game using it. Surely ea will have a few more surprises, waiting for their unsuspecting customers.

I'm thinking he should have gotten much more. Remember this wasn't just one person, it was 300. Even if it is an addiction (highly doubt this defense) maliciously hacked with intent to profit and do harm to their reputations, by releasing it on to the web. Iirc, he either did sell this or was trying. Imo, he should have gotten 5 years for each person he hacked. After pleading it down, serving concurrently for a total of 10 years, out in 6 or 7 with good behavior. No, I'm not talking hard time but prison yes.

He could have gotten a damn porn magazine or unlimited pictures on the web. His defense was a complete fraud. Both his parents being ex cops, saved his ass.

I'm confused, it said Cryengine in the credits. One of the reason I was avoiding this craptastic id engine. Hopefully they will get their story strait, at least by release.

Dying Light is awesome just because of the gameplay alone. It has the best first person melee of any game, ever, IMHO.. same with the traversal/parkour system - its the best.
Yeah, amazing fun. Too bad there isn't a better modding system.

Agent-Zero wrote on Jan 25, 2017, 16:37:
Their next project is apparently a co-op open world RPG with giant monsters you can climb on, like Shadow of Colossus or God of War.. im hoping they kept the same engine, that would be the ultimate game right there.
I read it was also based on Hexen. Sadly Iirc, Warner pulled them off of it to work more on Dying Light.

Agent-Zero wrote on Jan 25, 2017, 16:37:
actually i dont think this has any kind of magic users or spells.. i know you can summon an avatar from your particular God but thats not quite the same, its mainly a way to destroy entire settlements

maybe they will add it in later tho
Oh, that's pretty shocking. I defiantly need to read more about it then, thanks.

...however, I would say that for me it is the most appealing type of game in this genre I have seen so far... but then again I hate zombie games, and I love the classical "swords and sorcery" setting, including all the gratuitous blood, gore and T&A that goes along with it.. especially the Conan version in particular...
I agree with most of what you said, except I actually like zombie games, even in my preferred genre, RPGs. Dead Island and Dying Light are great CooP fun, despite Techlands less than stellar writing skills.

One thing, that got my attention was you mentioning sorcery. At least imo AoC had the worst magic classes in mmogs, since I started playing EQ back in 1999. It's going to be one of the defining criteria whether I purchase this or not. Since I know there is PvE protection now, against scumgankers.

State of Decay 2... maybe?

7days will be cool and all when it is much more balanced and directed. Right now we have some shitty spawns, that are placeholders.... I hope.
Yeah, when SoD was released on PC, it was flawed but fun. Sure, I've got over a hundred hours and it's just single player. A huge bonus compared to many games was the modding ability was pretty good. Certainly better than both Techland games I mentioned.

At least SoD was single player only, so it was really limited. I'm defiantly keeping an eye on it, but really worried since it's a m$. m$ looks for every conceivable (only a slight exaggeration) way to screw over PC gamers, so obviously I'm being really cautious about it.

So what exactly is this game? another DayZ clone? Rust? etc?
Yeah, my guess is it's pvp focused, but you can disable pvp OR at the very least allow PvE which should prevent scumgankers. As mentioned it sounds like you can run your own server and set your own rules.

Do you think this means BLUE will run a server and play by his own RULZ!! Mwahaha

Side note: At least looking at the trailer, apparently we can decorate our strongholds with bound, scantly clan women. Guess it really spruces up the place.

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...

Think so yes, I've never played it either and never heard it was bad. I guess they could have Leon and Tim working on PoE II but honestly, that game already has a team and really all it needed was better writing, well imo.

Well, you also know Brain (and Annie) who work as a contractors for Obsidian. Iirc, several of the non-owners (programmers and such) from Troika now work at Obsidian. All the pieces are in place and as mentioned Obsidian is always looking for new projects. Aamof, it has been the lack of steady contracts that has hurt Obsidian the most. It's caused them to have to layoff people.

Personally I think it's why Chis is out doing so much contract work now. They probably could afford to hire 3-5 people for his salary. I mean his salary was well deserved but still in the context of getting a budget under control it was probably pretty big.

Probably, unintentional sarcasm or just mud on my face. I was actually just commenting about Paradox and don't know anything about Focus or Cyanide. Guess this could have been a deal already in the works. If Cyanide are as bad as you make them sound, then maybe Paradox wants to stay far away.

I've just got high hopes for Paradox after winning one of the oldest and most popular game franchises in history. 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

Hopefully, Paradox is probably trying to avoid the giant corporate publisher (activision, atari, ea, zeni and ubi) curse. By letting WW, Focus and Cyanide handle things it gives a more independent and uncorrupted by pure greed of corporate cookie cutter game development.
