News Comments > It Lurks Below Early Access
1. Re: It Lurks Below Early Access Apr 25, 2018, 10:50 Darks
 
So, after many years of working on Diablo and this is the best they could come up with in terms of game play? Some old assed looking game from the early 90s. Okay!!!

I was hoping to see something that resembled a newer up-to-date Diablo style game, not this crap.

Own this game and will be running a dedicated server for Coop. So anyone that wants to play it on my server just let me know. Once the game goes live I will be renewing my server.

And I will be running a few mods on this server too. mods that increase the stacking of items, removing durability and a few other things that for me make the game more enjoyably.

Liked the game, it was a lot of fun, and the new combat they added is really good now.

Cant wait to see the final version.

So does this mean they've "remastered" the controls? I got Dark Souls 2, played it for a minute or two and immediately turned it off. I don't play console games and I don't use the game pad so for me, Dark Souls was not very well optimized when it came to controlling the game.

That is a very poor excuse for the game. You dont release a game on the PC and not give it proper mouse and keyboard support. this is what drives PC game players insane and gives games that are ported over a very bad reputation.

And on top of that, if you are going to release an enhanced edition of the game and then charge people for it too, then it damn well better have those issues with the mouse and keyboard fixed.

You can disable most or even all of the camera shenanigans in the options so it's a non-issue (unlike what those brainless steam reviewers imply).
As for game expansion we know that if the game is successful, they'll add more content based on the game engine, exactly like they did with their Shadowrun series. Having the FASA authors and even the game creator onboard really helps...
It's really the game i have been waiting for nearly 30 years now... although for some people it might be slow paced, it's as good as it gets for a board game adaptation, and i'm ok with the slower pace, reminds me of Warlords or HOMM..

Thats what I mentioned earlier in my post about the camera. Turn if off and the game feels and play so much better.

My gaming machine is 5 years old at this point, so I'll let y'alls know how it runs.
Mine's 5 years old too. Runs fine on 1080p, max. details. But the game regulary stops working and minimizes to a small, inactive bar. I still hear sound, but its not recoverable, i had to kill the task.

Aside from that ... the gameplay is what they promised. Tabletop rules with slight adjustments and changes. They got that right, now on to fixing bugs.

Have not had any of those issues. In fact, the game for me hasn't crashed once or had any pausing issues. I'm also installed on an SSD. The games been fine for me.

I had to turn off all the camera bouncing. That was driving me insane. I like a game like this where I control the camera as I see fit. And its been working really well without all that camera shifting going on.

My only real complaint is there is little to much XCom feel to this. The pilots getting hurt taking weeks to heal up. You have to have a large stable of pilots hired or your going to have issues down the road.

If only it had co-op.

Yea, tell me about it. I know Mitch Gitelman, I've been after him for years to put Coop in Mech Commander and Battletech. I just dont understand his reluctance adding it. They did say that it might be something they consider at a later date. Lets hope that means an add on or patching later. The games been a lot of fun.

Some people are whining about performance on steam, but I'm willing to bet they have shitty pcs.

Just low of Blizz to be pimping out two new maps. As if they need more money. These should have been free to the pubic. Blizz just keeps sinking lower and lower.

I'm not sure how much more content can be crammed into one game.
I'm all for more events and stuff, but espionage abilities would be a good start... better battle resolution and interface for sure... better research tree management, better pirate mechanics, etc.

Stellaris is still incredibly boring, imo. I have put in 50 hours and the game really drags in spots and some stuff just feels under developed. I prefer Distant Worlds far more than Stellaris, but I'm open minded and will keep at Stellaris... one of these DLC will eventually make the game fun.

Yea, I felt the same way, its a fun game at times, but yea, drags on and on. I tried playing this Coop wit ha friend. this is where to many of us that games flawed. if you want to allied with some one from the start of the game. You have to figure out where they are and try and travel to them to get a dialog going and then ally yourself. that was dreadfully crappy.

They need to make the game so its easily done with a friend from the start where you are allied and can see each other.

I really prefer how Sins of the Solar Empires plays compared to this. Its such a shame that StarDock hasn't seen the viability of Sins and what it really could evolve into . To me, Sins is till the best Real time strategy space game out there. But Stellaris does fill some of that void.

It really annoys me to no end that Stardock is sitting on this game. So much potential for part 2 just going to waste.

I take high offense to that comment dude. I went into this game years ago backing it because the concept and idea was very good. But Roberts totally fucked up the game with his poor management and constant creep featuring the fuck out of the game. Dont go stereotyping all of us into that basket.

That's sucker talk.

Nope, the best Kickstarter is and always will be the Divinity games.

Divinity 2 is Game of the year you cant beat that no matter what you toss at it.
I didn't back either one of those. Honestly, I never bothered finishing the first one....though I've heard that after one of the big patches it made the storyline flow better. I've wanted to buy Divinity 2 because of the praise...but have been concerned about a repeat of the clunky/disjointed quests early in the first one.

Probably should bite the bullet, though. Both my kids bought Divinity 2 and have loved it. ...and if those two blockheads can get deep into the campaign, SURELY I can!

Trust me ,both are incredible games, the second being even better. and yes, it did get game of the year for the RPG category. When I say its game of the year, I was not speaking for my self, I was actually quoting from the facts that this game earned that honor.

I'm not busting on Battletech, I love the games and series of games it established, I was the one who created the Coop missions for Mech 4 and Mercs back in the day. So, no one can ever say I'm not a fan.

Definitely looking forward to this game and I know it will be great, but until someone dethrones Divinity its still the king of games on KS.

And BTW, Divinity is very awesome when played Coop with a few friends. We have a Coop campaign going now, been going for several Friday lan sessions and its been a blast.
