So I bought this as I (along with quite a few on this messageboard), have sunk a silly amount of time into Anno 2070.
Only had a few hours of it so far, while it's slicker it's not grabbing me as much as 2070 did with the different factions and personalities.
Hopefully it will improve. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad game, it's just that Anno 2070 with the deep ocean expansion was the proverbial dogs nuts, whereas this one isn't quite there yet.
With these guys I'm sure there will be DLC for this, if they provide an extra faction like they did with Deep Ocean (Tech faction, geniuses and underwater building shit) then it will replace 2070 for me.

They've basically fucked themselves here for any future pre-orders of games. No one in their right mind is going to purchase any future releases until they've seen the post-release reviews. Talk about an expensive mistake.

Truth is, I hated Wing Commander when it came out and thought it was a horrible game--felt as though I'd wasted my money. Quality of the graphics and video was horrible--a product chained to the technology of the day.

I'm sorry, which games released in those days exactly had better games/"video" than Wing Commander? Because it was basically the best looking game that had ever been made at that point for the PC.

Seconded. It had great VGA graphics, both digital sound (via soundblaster) and midi (via Roland for those lucky bastards who had both). If you had expanded memory (only those people with the h/w installed or a 386 processor had it) then some additional features like active comms screens or your hand on the joystick in game responding to the inputs you're providing were there as well.
I'm really struggling to think of another game that came out at that time that was even close here. X-Wing didn't come out till '93 , Ultima 6 was out and no where near the graphics fidelity (that would wait until 92 with Ultima 7).
Seriously, what other games and what Wing Commander version are you thinking of it?

Richly deserved. Both CDP (the publisher and parent company of GOG and CDPR) and CDPR (the developer) have come a very long way over the last decade or so.
The fact that they've had this massive success while being strongly against DRM makes it even sweeter.

I loved alpha centuari. I like Civ 5. Beyond earth just didn't do it for me. Played it through the once but it didn't engage me like the earlier ones. Like others said it felt like a re-skin of Civ 5 with the fun removed.

Bit of a cliche, but I will wait and see if Rising Tide makes the game FUN....

The controller is the only thing that makes sense. You can't see in front of you. You need a simple control scheme that you can navigate without looking. Devs have already tried other options with their dev kits; take it from someone who has used them, anything more than a controller really doesn't work very well.

Even as a touch typist, I'd be hard-pressed to perfectly work a keyboard completely blind when it comes to games, since it's a different mindset and muscle movements than typing out text.

100x this. I have both a DK1 and DK2. Mouse + Keyboard is a pain in the arse when using them as if you take your hands off the keyboard at any time and lose your position then you end up taking the headset off to relocate them.
A controller is a lot easier and the best of current options available. The STEM stuff looks interesting, but it's while off being finished. Obviously haven't tried the Oculus touch peripheral yet.

Also if this like other KS projects, 1.25 million is like 20to40% of what's actually needed.

Inxile over-delivered on wasteland 2. I think they know what they're doing here with regards to budgeting and cost management.

Why not revive Eye of the Beholder series, these were better than Bards Tale IMHO.

EoB was released 5 years after bards tale, we'd gone from CGA to VGA graphics by that point. It's main competitor/equivalent would have been the SSI gold box series.
2 years after EoB came out what I consider the greatest RPG of all time (well, till PST) was released.

Ultima 7.


Awww yeah......

I'm in. I liked Wasteland 2, it ticked all the buttons for me, and am really looking forward to torment.
I think I still have the old graph paper maps I made for BT1 and 2 somewhere. Them and the old SSI gold box series (Pools of Radiance, Curze of the Azure Bonds, etc)

Its almost 20 years since Nicola kicked of mame. The open source thing is just a legal technicality. The source code has always been there for anyone who is interested to view and/or to contribute to.
There must have been hundred, if not thousands of contributers over the years. Would have taken a while to track them all down.
Should be in the next Civ game as a Wonder of the digital age.

I'll wait for the Extended/Director's Cut/Whatever The Fuck Else They Decide To Call It to go on sale for $15. How would we already have two expansions, complete with play times, if they weren't planned and cut from the full title? I'm sick of this shitty trend. A lot of the stuff I've been seeing of this game makes me less than confident it will be a quality PC release anyway. Too busy playing GTA 5 at the moment to listen. XD

I hate day 1 DLC that you can see was clearly cut from the game to nickle and dime consumers. DA:Origins with the character that was clearly catered for throughout the original game but was a seperate day 1 dlc is the prime example of that.

This appears nothing of the sort though so you should probably kwitcherbitchin. If anyone out there deserves the benefit of the doubt when it comes to DLC, it's CD Projekt.

Announcement probably could have been better timed, but thats a marketing thing, not a shitty business practise thing....
