Yay official mod support! Been holding off on finishing my playthrough. Apparently Bethesda is working on making Survival difficulty more like Hardcore mode in FNV too.

Edit: Oh wait, this adds DLC support, not mod support. Disappointing.

I wanted to think of it that way at the time I was playing it, but the further in retrospect it gets, the more I look at the sum total of its mechanics and design focus and realize it's little more than a poorly executed Deus Ex with metafiction papering over the holes in the wall. It only appears innovative at first glance because when so few people really even try to do certain things, you tend to get excited and forget what came before whenever somebody does. Deus Ex was everything this game is, years ago, even the story branching and character interaction. Difference is, they got the other game systems right.

That's debatable. I loved DX but when you look at each individual mechanic or system, it had a lot of problems. Compared to games that specialized in said mechanics or systems, DX was underwhelming. Thief had better stealth. Quake/UT/every other FPS had better combat. Fallout/PST had better roleplaying. However, DX was greater than the sum of its parts and I feel the same applies to Consortium. I'm able to overlook its flaws because the overall experience is compelling.

FF:Tactics style would be awesome, but this PC vs console nonsense... jesus guys... get over it already.

It's like they forget XCom is on ipad... and I'm sure XCom 2 will be in a few months. I bet the only reason it isn't out right now is there's zero way they could sell it at $60 on that device.

Given XCOM 2's performance issues on high-end PCs, I seriously doubt they'll be able to get the game running on tablets any time soon.

Zero interest. Now, if Bio/EA wants to repackage the entire Mass Effect series, including all DLC? I'd be down for that.


It baffles me why EA won't let them do an HD remake for the entire ME series. With the way HD remakes are selling, and the way fans have been clamoring to be able to play ME on the current gen of consoles, it seems like it would be a no-brainer, especially since they already have all 3 games running on PC code anyway.

EA already released Mass Effect Trilogy and made sure not to include any of the DLC. I'm guessing that's why they don't want to do a remastered trilogy. Why give people three remastered games with all the DLC for a measly $60 when you can charge them $80+ just for the DLC itself?

On a side note, I think people are misunderstanding what "Only on PC" actually means. Bioware isn't proposing that the game be a PC exclusive. They're just asking if players have a preferred platform to play on.

"Some users." No, all users. Every person I've talked to IRL has issues to some degree or another. And it goes beyond framerate. People are being SHOT THROUGH WALLS, which is why I haven't even played past the tutorial. I'm not going to play a difficult game with permadeath where I can lose cheaply by magic bullets.

Shooting through walls happened in the previous game too. "Full cover" doesn't mean you can't be hit. It just means that enemies have a greatly reduced chance to hit you.

Also, it goes both ways. You can shoot enemies through walls too.

These aren't opinions. This is what the game actually is, and in order to reach the valuable part, the writing, you have to be willing to forgive it. I'm not, and as evidenced by the failure of their kickstarter, neither are most gamers.

Eh, it's a bit of a stretch to assume that most gamers have even heard of CONSORTIUM, let alone played it. The failure of the Kickstarter has more to do with lack of exposure than anything else. 3,142 people backed the first game. 4,616 people backed the second game. Going by those numbers, it's much more logical to conclude that the majority of people who backed the first game also backed the second and they wouldn't have done that if they didn't enjoy the first one.

The first game certainly wasn't perfect. The AI was stupid, the combat sucked and there were plenty of bugs and performance issues at launch (though these were eventually fixed). However, when you look at what the game tried to do (provide a compelling and interactive narrative with branching paths and meaningful player choices), they succeeded. I thought of Consortium as an adventure game with player agency and I enjoyed it as such.

Disappointing but not unexpected. Even if the Kickstarter had succeeded, there's no way they could have made the game they promised with the money they were asking for.

Oooh, free Condemned....

I heard Binary Domain wasn't great per se, but for free I'll take it...


Binary Domain was a pretty solid third-person cover shooter. The enemies were interesting to fight due to the locational damage system and the squad morale system was pretty cool too.

If you support/purchase any Season Pass DLC you are far too stupid for words.

Has there ever even been one that ended up being a "good deal" with enough content to justify that type of advanced pricing?

Occasionally. The Bioshock Infinite DLC was really good and the season pass was well worth the investment. If Dishonored or FNV had had season passes, they would have been worth it too. From what I've read, the Dying Light season pass was worthwhile too (when it was cost $20).

In general, season passes that are $20 or less tend to be more worthwhile. $50 season passes? Not so much. Bethesda has a mixed record when it comes to DLC so I'm not entirely confident in spending $30 for their season pass. The FO3 DLC was worth maybe $10-15 total and I feel like FO4's DLC will follow suit.

Cool of SEGA to do this. Pretty solid titles, too, especially in the next batch of freebies (includes Binary Domain and Condemned).

saw a video where the chopping through enemies stuff looked like it was procedural instead of a canned animation, so that was promising

Not sure which video you saw. All the execution anims are canned and will no doubt get tedious rather quickly.

I just don't know who to trust anymore!

Are those dang dirty pirates ruining life and taking away diamond-encrusted swimming pools from executives?!

Or does piracy give players a way to test game releases before buying, which also lets players decide on the quality, which means players will actually buy more of the good games?!

Do I side with the dirty pirates or the evil corporate overlords!?

EDIT: in seriousness, since I couldn't try Just Cause 3 or Tomb Raider, which both had/have performance issues on some hardware, there is no way I would buy them at release. Steam refunds isn't good enough for me since 2 hours is like 1 hour tweaking settings and only 1 hour actually playing.

Do you really spend an hour tweaking settings? I'm obsessed with getting at least 60 FPS while maximizing image quality and I spend about 5 minutes tweaking settings for any given game.

On a side note, I used to follow your philosophy. I'd pirate games to see if I liked them and bought the ones I enjoyed. That said, with the various refund policies and substantial discounts now offered by digital distributors, that approach seems outdated.

I'm guessing the recommended specs are slightly exaggerated. Remedy has a history of well-optimized ports so I'm pretty sure the game will run fine with less ridiculous hardware.

It's sad that the Kickstarter for the sequel isn't going to make it. I enjoyed the first game and the follow-up looks great. Hopefully they manage to secure funding through other means.

The delay is annoying but at least they're putting effort into the port. I'll take a delayed but good port over a quick but shoddy port any day.

Not sure why Star Citizen was brought up but this looks like it could be cool. I enjoyed The Ball and a survival game with an actual story and end goal could be interesting.

Very surprising that the PC version is releasing simultaneously with the Xbox version. Being a Windows 10 exclusive wasn't surprising at all but I'd figure they'd wait at least three years before porting the game to PC.
