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.

That's because U.S. politics is too big to fail and today Trump is contemplating committing more War Crimes. Good times, good times.

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."

Oh, and before anyone reminds me that the game takes place in Montana just understand that Rednecks don't only live in the South.

Hell, anyone that has even driven through Montana knows that.

I have but only Eastern Montana, native Montanans in the eastern portion don't have southern accents, its more of a west-coast accent when I was there. The most northern edges also differ a bit with Canadian accents mixed in.

Anyone who has played Far Cry before and expected any meaningful social commentary is a fool. FC4 has its moments (trying to pick from 2 extremes, each arguably worse than who you're replacing) but it never went beyond big, dumb stereotypes - and it was better for it. I don't mind social commentary in games, but Far Cry isn't the place for the nuance this would need.

Haha, pretty true. Every Far Cry game I have ever played is over the top crazy. From crazy over the top cults and gameplay to michael bay non-linear explosions.

I've never actually played any of them. I would love to see a Singleplayer WW2 game, any Nation - doesn't matter, with the realism of Red Orchestra/RS/etc. with a huge dynamic map like WW2 Online.

It is what it is I guess. I mean it looks pretty fun and the idea of it is cool, but it seems they need fix spawn camping and simply add stuff. This seems like a game I may try much later, perhaps a year, to see how it progressed, but by then I would hope there are still players.
