Well I mean MW4 already had that All vs. All, but it was far more tunable by a server admin than this which seems to be some sort E-Sport Pipedream.

I'm waiting for the Switch version anyways. I don't understand why ports for jRPGs are bungled so much. This surprises me too, since playing the older Ys games from Nihom, the ports have been decent.

Russia news posts always make me wanna watch "Spies Like Us" again.

Can't find it on Bluray unfortunately, but it is available to rent on Amazon Video.

As far as Trump collusion, to me it is more likely that he is an idiot and has no idea if he has 'colluded'. Trump should, if anything, be immediately tried for War Crimes and Impeached for ordering an attack on Syria's Sovereignty which is a crime of aggression according to the Nuremberg Principles.

For 'McCarthyism', I don't know if Repubs throw around that term other than 'Witch Hunt,' but most Leftist news rags I read throw it around quite a bit. Some on the left say the term doesn't quite fit, since a lot people's livlihoods were really crushed by that Era; where others think it does as "lite" or "neo"-style in that it is seen as constant paranoia of the "other." We as Americans are constantly told we must have an enemy. The worst of this I saw was when PropOrNot declared many alternative/anti-war/activist media organizations as "Russian Propaganda" which I personally found offending, of which the owners of those site like Robert Parry of Consortium News did (along with counterpunch, anti-war, etc.). Not even Jill Stein, my preferred candidate was safe, who was also accused of being a Russian Collaborator which was nothing less than a smear on Third Parties - which is why for me personally I think the Democrat and Republican parties are complete trash for stooping that low.

For the article topics, we obviously do need to continually upgrade. The sad part is, when it comes to our government, they are severely outdated in many areas so it doesn't surprise me that Russian hackers get through. On the positive side, it's also job security for Cyber Security and Networking/System Administration.

On the flip side, this isn't a one way street. Our government has essentially militarized cyber-warfare and has been hacking/spying for decades, that's partially what Edward Snowden revealed. We do it too, so tit-for-tat really. We upgrade, they upgrade and everyone is trying to hack each other, that's the future.

It's also important to keep in my mind that between 1946 and 2000, there has been at least 117 electoral interferences known around the world. 70% of which were done by our government against other Nations. Clearly we are not the shining pillar on the hill.

No need to be smart ass El Pit, but that is your schtick. My point still stands. It's not hard to figure out what the game name means. Main Title Name - Number in Series: Subtitle Likely Plot of Game. And no Wild Hunt is not apples/oranges, before I read the witcher or played the games I had no idea it had anything to do with real folklore. Same concept. Complaining about the title of a game is ridiculous.

"Ys" is the land or continent in these games that the people inhabit. The subtitles of these games usually has to do with some event within the game. "Lacrimosa" is a process defined in that game that trigger something about an extinction event, in other words you would have to play the game to find out what it means.

Kind of like "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" for someone who has not played a Witcher game or is unfamiliar with European folklore would no idea what "Wild Hunt" means until they played it.

It's a jRPG Cutter, just look it up - the internet is at your finger tips.

This game looks so weird man, not even my nightmares can conjure this up. Also the O in the title "Agony" looks like Vagina Dentata.

Seems like it needs optimization? Not sure if that was deliberate slow mo in the video, or choppy frames, but other than that it looks pretty cool. I see a lot of "Thief"-like gameplay in that.

I just recall seeing them spin on a dime to turn, didn't really look like a big robot turning. Or like running up a hill. Very small stuff I could overlook, almost certainly buying it anyway.

So clunky as in "too fluid", got it. Yeah, I saw a little of that when I was playing the beta. My head canon is time expands in a turn of BattleTech (table top is ten seconds/turn), the animated movements are an artifact of compressing time back down into something that is watchable in normal time.

Rhett isn't wrong, the animations are clunky but workable. HBS said in a Q&A when they were gifted the 3D models they had to scrap the animations that came with them and make their own and make other animations that did not exist with the model to begin with (melee punches and kicks), some of the ones they made make a Mech look look odd when it fires off LRMs for example (constantly shakes, instead of just steadying itself and shifting back once). And the PGI model animations themselves are notorious for looking clunky in the game they come from and are not as 'smooth' or natural-looking as say MW4 animations.

It's really personal preference in this instance. I play MegaMek on and off and sit and stare at 2D pixels moving across hexes shooting at each other with zero animation, and still find it very fun. This is really just a step up from that for turn-based Battletech.

With what I've experienced in the beta and seen on Twitch....this may be the best Kickstarter I've ever rolled the dice on.

Nope, the best Kickstarter is and always will be the Divinity games.

Divinity 2 is Game of the year you cant beat that no matter what you toss at it.

It's probably the best KS for Primalchrome is what they mean, for you it is Divinity.

Nutritional value perhaps, but you can't sell a couple floaters only of value to waste disposal ;). I don't have a brick oven where I live, equivalents, but I'll check it out the next time I'm in Austin.

That inkwell is actually pretty cool.
4 Brick Oven Pizza's cool? ($80 inkwell) Never met a kickstarter I didn't like.

Not sure where I'd put a traditional Brick Oven if that's what you're talking about, but no. Those vary by contractor.

Not I, but I'm sure there's a lot of interesting work they did. I never finished NV with the only reason being I could and still cannot get past the jank of Bethesda's game engine, regardless of better quest design/mechanics from Obsidian trying to utilize it.

HBS and Obsidian are probably going to do pretty well with their respective titles. For HBS in particular, it is their biggest game to date.

Regardless of that tit-for-tat's veracity, how's the sanction reduction working for them?

Not sure what you mean by reduction. At least in 2017, it was found that economic sanctions actually lost the EU 155 billion, compared to Russia's 55 billion. (page 13) "they have led in the process to a regrettable deterioration of the standard of living of the most vulnerable population groups in the Russian Federation and have also adversely affected smallholder farmers in Europe."
