Color me impressed. I agree that the graphics need some serious work, though.

I'm sure if someone created "Taking a Shit Simulator" that it would have "roguelike" in its description. Utterly useless and wildly overused nonsense.

Yeah, after Rome 2...I think I am going to give this one a wide berth. Shogun 2 didn't exactly wash the taste of it out of my mouth.

Great QA work from Nvidia. I'm glad I didn't "upgrade" my drivers.

That's prudent.

is it prudent?

Not gonna do it. Wouldn't be prudent!

Hmmmm...with the exception of heroin, the posts gushing about this game have very low post counts.

I'm not a suspicious person by nature but I'm less than convinced.

As I have said since this was revealed to the public, this game is going to be shallow, boring, grueling and ultimately pointless. Ultra huge galaxies with "content generation" that are interesting and fully fleshed out won't become a thing until we have 10Thz quantum processors, 512YB (Yes, yottabytes) of multiplanar RAM, Video cards that can render the world as we see it at 2000FPS with no tearing at all, and storage devices the size of rice grains that hold zetabytes of information. Hell, the world is just that complex to simulate in full, real time detail let alone galaxies teeming with billions of stars and trillions of worlds. Each unique unto itself.

This game is a joke. "Look, you discovered a plant! You can name it! Look, you discovered another plant that looks almost exactly like the last plant you just discovered except it's a different color. Isn't this exciting? Isn't this revolutionary?"

Pathetic.

I was going to make fun of this until it hit me that "Dude, you play a fucking TRUCKING simulator!"

Step 1: Blow the dust out of the wheezing 486 mini tower that hosts Uplay so three people instead of two can connect to authenticate the game.

Thought it said "Dragon" and got all excited someone was remaking the old Dynamix title...


Yeah, I think I'd actually rather play a Rise of the Dragon remake. Kinda burned out on dungeon crawlers at the moment after both LoGs and another game whose name escapes me currently.

SO anyone try it? Is it any good? Is the content there or should people wait a bit before buying in?

I own it. I really like it though there is room for improvement and not an insignificant amount. I was talking about it with some friends over poker last Saturday night and all of us are old MOO players, back to the original (Hell, three of us know or knew Steve Barcia and Ken Burd). We all agree that while it is an enjoyable game, it is not yet fantastic. The races are unbalanced, the tech tree has taken an either/or path in some instances (instead of inclusive as it used to be), and the AI is pretty boneheaded at the moment.

Sweet! I want to find a 30,000HP engine mod with a 50 speed tranny. If I can't do express runs at 250MPH, then what's the point?

As much as I want to like XCOM 2, I think Yahtzee hits it on the head.

I saw "New World Interactive" and got all excited there for a moment, thinking that perhaps New World Computing had risen from the ashes. Alas...no.

"Start playing February 26 by purchasing the Collector's Edition on Steam or GoG!"

Except you can't actually purchase it right now on Steam or GOG. That sentence seems to imply that you will get access on the 26th if you have already purchased the game.

Shitty marketing.

Clive's other game, can't remember the name, bombed though.

That game would be Jericho. After Undying, a game that I really, really liked, I had high hopes for Jericho. Unfortunately, it was a crashtastic nightmare for me and working with support for close to three months never really solved the problem. I had a pretty bog standard Intel-Nvidia setup at the time and all parties concerned were pretty much at a loss. Wiped the OS, did a re-install with just the latest drivers...still crashed. IIRC, I think a small percentage of the people whom purchased it had the same problem.
