There's no way Into the Breach, Subnautica or Battletech would ever make the top 12 best-selling list. Too niche.

not really, aren't the Steam charts according to revenue generated not sales numbers? If so the next time CSGO has a new operation or major (ie. sticker sales) it should jump right back on.

Nope, F2P games aren't listed on the top sellers, even if they make a bazillion dollars in microtransactions and DLC.

Looks pretty good from the screenies on the Steam page. I wouldn't mind a good old classic RTS like C&C, AoE, Empire at War etc. in a Conan setting. Could be fun if they don't ruin this shit with DLC'o'rama hell.

It's amazing how this once glorious and overcrowded genre has all but died. I guess we can thank consoles for that as RTS still does not translate very well to a controller.
The other reason is that programming a decent AI and making decent maps is actual work compared to making lazy console cookie cutter action games.

This isn't really a classic RTS. It's basically tower defense/horde mode. You build a base and deal with waves of enemies.

You gotta admit, it looks absolutely gorgeous. It's a shame that it's in a multiplayer game where no one stops to smell the virtual roses.

There's a single-player campaign too.

Carmageddon was very much a product of its time. The latest one (Max Damage) is actually pretty solid... but nobody cares. Vehicular combat has always been pretty niche and that's even more true in today's market.

I could careless at the moment. Been having a lot of fun in the single player and I just started it.

Personally I'd prefer more Tombs to explore w/puzzles.

That's exactly what this DLC is.

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.

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.
