Well I guess we know who has the actual Descent trademark.

News Comments > MS Acquires Obsidian and inXile

I could be incorrect in this assumption, but I don't think that inXile or Obsidian could survive long term in today's game market. They can't survive on kickstarters alone, but with publisher backing and crowdfunding it might give them a little more cushion instead of barely getting by.

I feel this may be why Harebrained also gained a publisher in Paradox.

Well technically if they add private server support, it can be 'forever', but I certainly don't see this game's public server population lasting for a decade. If they continually add on to it, like a GaaS like they are claiming, maybe. People usually move on to the next thing.

In 1940 you would be lucky if you had an erector set wrapped in leather for a prosthetic arm. DICE thought they would get good boy points for putting in a robot arm wielding female sniper on the front line while calling their game an authentic WWII experience. Well Mr. "If you don't like it, don't buy it" exited stage left but for many his comment is still being reverberated in the halls of the internet.

Danger what you are describing though is stuff that doesn't matter. If authenticity matters, remember also that there are Tiger Tanks and StG44's on 1940 battles or Rotterdam without Dutch, or everyone having the same guns. Those are 'authenticity' fudges to me.

A better term would be steampunk-ish. I saw no Kusanagi or Puppet Master's in any BFV video. Anyways looks fun, but guarantee it will be buggy on release. I still don't like that every side can use every gun.

They were hinting at this for a while. The Original Starcraft was getting lots of updates right before the remaster arrived, they were doing the same with this. Looks good.

Still prefer buying from GoG than Steam. For me that is simply not going to change.

Well here's a thought if the U.S. would cut back on the enormously wasteful defense budget and pour money into NASA and the Civilian economy, we could solve these problems quicker. The U.S. already works jointly with Russia and other countries with Space Adventures™, but it could be way better if it were more than a tertiary focus. But seeing as the Trump and Congress was willing to approve more wasteful Defense dollars, I don't see that happening anytime soon.

At this point I'll buy Witcher anything. It's basically my new Star Wars, where I will purchase all the expanded universe Witcher games or media like I did back in the day from LucasArts.

That was pretty cool to watch *shrug*. I would love to see a fully realized, modern BattleTech universe like that with combined warfare, but that'll probably never happen :(. I am more or less just waiting for SQ42 thing, but if this Multiplayer portion becomes more complete it looks like it could be fun to romp around in/explore.

Plus, he's gotten so much more publicity for his books than he ever would have gotten without the games. How many book sales are tied directly to gamers who are curious about the source? He should be happy with that part at least. Not entirely sure about game royalties without reading all the fine print.

Yes, although he can also thank CD Red for popularizing the books in general, which went on to be translated in multiple countries at least I assume that's why the series went international. There is likely a lot of consumers of his books I suspect that might not be gamers at all or even played any of the games.

I've been wanting to buy the books for a while, but fuck that now. He sounds like an alcoholic douchenozzle, if other commenters (on other sites) are to be believed.

Pfft, who cares how the author is in real life. Just buy the books in your desired format and read away.

I love the RPS description for this game in their review:

"A ragtag group of animes, their doctor dog, and their pet tank are out to save semi-magical notEurope from the notNazis during notWW2 through the powers of friendship and turn-based tactical squad combat in Valkyria Chronicles 4"

Love this series lol.
