As with pretty much all indie RPGs, you probably shouldn't play this at launch. Wait 6 months for all the bug fixes, balancing changes, UI improvements and feature/content updates.

Uhm, I actually think this is extremely odd. 3 years ago they got more than $40m from "Series D" funding and their Walking dead games had fantastic sales (at least the data from before steam gimped steamspy indicated as much).

That means their other 3 projects, Minecraft, Batman and Guardians tanked or had they all insane licensing costs?

I think they just over-expanded after their initial success with TWD. Too many people, too many projects, not enough profit to sustain them. $40 million isn't a lot in game development. That would pay for maybe two or three projects at most. I think a lot of their projects didn't have the success they expected, either. Game of Thrones, Guardian of the Galaxy, Tales from the Borderlands, The Wolf Among Us, etc, didn't sell well enough to warrant a second season and when you're relying on an episodic revenue model, that's bad.

Hopefully their writers find jobs at other studios because they were really talented. Tales from the Borderlands is probably the funniest game of the past decade.

Because it will look and run the best on PC?

Looks like EuroJank but I'm down for it if the ideas are interesting enough. I really like the premise.

Hyped. Shadow Tactics was fantastic and I'm sure the devs can pull it off again with the Desperados IP.

Super dramatic voice: "If you fail... Greece is lost!"

"I thought we just respawned at the nearest checkpoint?"

"Oh... ehhh, sorry... it seems my information was wrong! Heh... kind of embarrassing, really..."


Still, I absolutely LURVED origins (replaying it now), so pretty interested in this. I just really did NOT like the ship combat in Origins, because it felt tacked on and super-unsatisfying compared to Black Flag, and the fact that they're focusing so heavy on it here just doesn't really grab me. I wish they'd stop fucking pussy-footing around and just make a fucking pirate game already, without the Assassin's Creed bullshit in it. You already have everything you need, it's right in this game. Just stop with the Animus and the pieces of Eden garbage, and just make an awesome pirate RPG! If it had all the pieces of this game in it and Black Flag's combat, how is that not a 90+ game that sells millions?

Wait, you liked BF's combat? It was just as bad as the other games. Wait for somebody to attack, press the counter button, bam, they're dead. Sometimes you needed to press the counter button twice or press it once and then mash the regular attack but it barely even qualified as combat. AC:O's combat was far more interesting.

Edit: Derp, I missed the "ship" part when you mentioned combat. Yeah, it was definitely tacked on in AC:O but it looks a lot more substantial in Odyssey. You can even kidnap random enemies and turn them into slaves/fighters on your boat.

Yes, exactly. I'm not buying a half-assed version if they are going to re-release the "real" game, i.e. as it should have been from the start, later on.

Everything gets remastered these days. If you refuse to buy anything that might be remastered or otherwise upgraded after launch, you're basically not going to buy any games.

So basically, the CPU is handling the same stuff it handles in every game. Surprisingly, they forgot to mention AI, though maybe that's covered by "monster interactions." "Health status" is a pretty odd one to mention, though. Tracking the health of entities isn't expensive at all. You're basically just checking a variable. In most cases, you don't even need to update it every tick. You just update it when it changes.

Was never a big LT fan. Cuts out a lot of the things that made Tribes interesting, like base defense and specialized loadouts. It mainly rose to prominence after most people stopped playing Tribes and provided a way for much smaller team sizes to be viable.

Still, it's good to see that T1 still has a community. It was easily the best in the series and remains unrivaled in terms of speed and mobility.

I hope it plays more like the first game than the second one... I honestly couldn't make it through the second game. Didn't like it.

The setting in the second game was my biggest problem but that didn't stop me from finishing it at all. Setting the bulk of it on an alien world was kind of pointless and didn't leave much for the player to relate to.

I felt the opposite. I loved the more fantastical setting of DS2. It offered a lot more variety than all the post-apocalyptic stuff in the first game.

I have watched many videos of this game in an effort to understand what's so special about it.
I still don't get it.

Running around in nature killing big monsters. Whoop-dee-fucking-doo. I am very close to losing any faith in the gaming industry. Maybe stuff like Cyberpunk and Rage 2 can help me regain some faith, but that may be too little too late for my state of mind.

Do you only play AAA games or something? There's a ton more variety in the AA and indie spaces.

What genius thought it would be a good idea to release at the same time as Battle for Azeroth? Jeez.

I'll probably get it anyway, but 60 fps cap? Come on! Smells like crappy port

August is a pretty common time to release games. Also, I don't think publishers really care about WoW. People who still play WoW tend to only play WoW so it's not like they were potential customers anyway.

I thought the first two games were great and didn't notice any decline in quality over their durations. I was engaged throughout the whole experience.

I'm a bit less confident about DS3, though. Nordic has never funded a AAA game before and they have a history of pushing games out the door before they're ready. Also, I don't know how much of the original dev team has been retained in the new team.

The complete lack of care they've given the PC build is astonishing, given that they took 7 months to deal with it. I love Monster Hunter, but with what sounds like a poor port (60 FPS is minimum to get in the door - not a selling point, console title having no increase in tech but recommended specs that seem FAR too high just for 1080p30, etc...), and Denuvo to top it off, I'd rather settle for MHGU on the Switch and let this die on the vine. I couldn't be much more disappointed.

It may be the only PC Monster Hunter we get if it tanks, but, I won't pay for "it's okay, we'll do better next time, promise." I have a huge backlog already, this can wait until it's a deep-discount buy, at best - I've already waited this long.

So... you'd rather play a version that looks and runs significantly worse..?

Also, if you actually click on the CapCom Unity link, you'll see screenshots of the various video settings. They seem pretty in-depth given the apparent "lack of care."

Finally, it's pretty common for devs/publishers to overestimate their min/rec specs. It's safer than underestimating.

Pretty impressed by how much support DE has given Warframe since it launched years ago. It's certainly paid off and I think it may be the most successful co-op game ever.

I hated the last one. You go through the level the same exact way, and sometimes they spot you, sometimes they donít. The AI sucked.

The NPC vision cones were based on their head. So, if their idle animation or fidget makes them rotate their head in your direction, they'll see you.

That said, it's pretty hard to predict and not super obvious. They should probably just use the character's root for the vision cone direction, like most other stealth games. They actually did when the game first launched but then they changed it for some reason.

Let's see how long this lasts when someone releases Pedophile Simulator 2018 and the media gets wind of it.

Reading comprehension fail: "Nothing Illegal"
Pedophilia IS Illegal!

Um, grand theft auto is a crime, but Grand Theft Auto is not illegal. A game about child abuse is not necessarily illegal either, and by Valve's new policy it would be totally fine to make that game and put it on Steam. If Valve wants to their service to be even more of a cesspit, that's up to them, but they'll need to face the consequences.

I can pretty much guarantee that Valve will ban any games that simulate or encourage rape, pedophilia, child molestation, etc.

So... does that mean uncensored porn games are now allowed on Steam? Somehow I doubt it. Not that I'd be interested in such things... I'm just asking for a friend!
