Has anyone played this? It looks pretty cool, but skirmish only (basically, since the campaign is apparently short and not very good) games really don't last me long enough for me to bite at $50.
As a SupCom player I've found the lack of unit variety not to my pleasing, but otherwise I've enjoyed the game. It's certainly the best take on a massive RTS since SupCom. Now if there was just strategic zoom...

The Vive looks like the better headset but I'm a bit concerned about this room-space stuff. I'd rather stay seated if possible so I hope this is optional.
Technically it's a game design choice, not a hardware choice*. But the launch games for it are all of the get up and move variety.

* Purely IMHO, as I haven't seen data to back it up, but I don't think sitting down is great for the lighthouse units either. Both are meant to see the headset

why would a game run better with 16 GB of system RAM compared with 8 GB? shader cache?
More memory to cache assets in general. Less pressure from the OS. Etc.

WildTangent's games are terrible and Alex St. John got himself fired from MS because he was burned out.
Not just fired, but hauled out by security, apparently.

Sounds like this guy didn't look out for his own interests in the partnership agreement and demand proper milestones from his programmer before handing over money and control. Lesson learned.
More to the point, this is why you need to structure your ventures such that control is uneven, to prevent deadlocks. If he was 51% owner none of this would have happened.

The game had a lot of potential. Hopefully they'll learn from it and make this one into the game that TF1 should have been.
Agreed. If they can learn from TF1 and make a better game because of it, I don't see a problem with the devs taking a second shot at it.

I like the developers and the art style. But I just can't get into touch screen games on the Vita. They're a pain to play.

It's good to see Prison Architect pick up an award. Good, fun, addicting little indie title.
It is always good to see Introversion doing well. They deserve it.

Hadn't watched one of these in a while. This one was hilarious, and did a great job of capturing the polarizing nature of the film.
Normally these videos are more pithy than honest, but they really did a good job here.

Well I guess that's something...

What shipping are they using, anyhow? Unless it's free 2-day shipping (or better), I'm not sure free ground shipping is all that impressive.

Man...I really wanna pick this up and like it. So much cool looking about it. Then I read real player reviews and it sounds fairly dry to the bone and unfinished.

Who to believe...
It's a fine line. A game like this is going to engage a lot of large scale RTS enthusiasts, but they all have their own idea of what a perfect game is and how much content is "enough."

How is anyone suprirsed by this? Halo is the marquee franchise of the Xbox. Of course MS isn't in a rush to bring it to the PC.

"a new desktop app converter that will make it super-simple for developers of old-school Windows apps to modernize their software with UWP"

Yeah right... as if a code converter ever produced usable code.
UWP is by and large a subset of Win32. If your game isn't doing anything too crazy, it should in fact work.

How exactly can they not support 4K? It's the same aspect ratio as 1080p, just at a higher resolution. This leaves me a bit stupefied.

There may not be much of a business in creating "games" that don't have gameplay and just tell a story. Those types of "games" may be better off as Youtube videos.
Perhaps. But I'd hate to think we can no longer have games like Half-Life because people stop paying for them.

Sorry, but indie devs whining about such things like this here really get on my nerves. It`s 2016, get over the fact some kids put a vid up, and then some maybe watched it. You can`t squeeze a dollar out of everybody.
In all seriousness, why should the LPers get the ad money from a gameplay video? Isn't the real content the developer's game?

Unfortunate, but not unexpected. This is why major publishers don't like doing story-driven single player games these days: everyone is just going to skip buying it and watch it on YouTube.

Freeze Tag is a hard sell since it means people have to be willing to not play the game at times, but damn if the concept doesn't look fun.

Nerds wearing T-shirts with game names/logos on them are a dime a dozen at GDC. So I'm not in any way surprised no one noticed. At best it would have been written off as a fan shirt unless you specifically knew the guy and his company.
