i wonder how fucked up the next generation is going to be growing up on such a short leash. and when they're going to need to be tough, to make something of the shitshow the world is becoming in the next few years. i don't envy them.

i do have to wonder how much of shatner's recollections are sincere and how much is him rewriting his memory. i remember when george takei sent him an invitation to his wedding which shatner skipped, then publicly groused about not getting invited. apparently takei is used to this bullshit because he'd sent the invite certified.

Forza Horizon 3. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.

Also, yeah, that KotOR remake is likely going to get Cease & Desisted by Disney Real Soon Now(tm)

i don't even know what those guys are thinking. black mesa is the only example of a successful remake, but they had valve's active blessing and a license to distribute it! and they're talking about being open to donations to make this.

I think Pillars of Eternity: the White March Part 2 is getting released today - my game just started a 1.8GB update. News on it here:

PoE White March part 2

Is the expansion worth buying? The base game is absolutely great!

Really? I despised it. In fact I just started trying it again and ended up uninstalling it after a few hours. Horrible mechanics and needlessly verbose and hackneyed writing. It's easily Obsidian's worst game by a long shot. It appears to be one of those love it or hate it affairs for most and I'm firmly in the latter camp.

"bad mechanics" sounds like "i'm not used to it and therefore it is bad". everyone hated it at first but the mechanics are solid.

the writing though, urghhh.. it is so densely written, i still don't fully comprehend the plot. without any publisher oversight they just went crazy, writing and writing and writing in their design echo chamber, the "less conventional" the better.

worth noting though that the "soul views" you can get of people are all backer written which is why they're universally terrible.

Can you take an OEM version of, say, Windows 7 and perform the upgrade to Windows 10 as if it were retail?

yeah oem works fine. there's no way to convert a key, so actually getting a clean install of w10 is a headache.

It would be more appealing thematically and maybe at least slightly controversial if you were playing a German MG42 operator on D-day. Maybe next game!

shooters are such a saturated market. when i see a military/ww2 game my eyes glaze over.

i'll give them credit, seeing them try to stir the pot and carry Postal's torch at least made me look at their games, but both look pretty mundane to me.

i seriously think it's been 10 years or more since i jumped into a game of DM. last online game i put serious time in was GTA5 for it's heist mode which was pretty great, but difficult to get friends together for. but when you have a good team, it's magic.

Since these OVERLOAD guys have people on board who worked on FreeSpace, they should have considered making a good old traditional space sim with an epic single player campaign..

Not letting the player "turn the tide" or otherwise be a deciding factor, any faction could end up on top regardless of the player though maybe let them influence it a bit (perhaps if certain characters/ships are destroyed some faction becomes stronger/weaker).

well who knows, this could end up like that. that was a staple of freespace 1 and 2's plot, making the player feeling like a cog in the machine, and this game's campaign is apparently written by the same guy.

battlefield hardlines did much better on consoles

it was dead before the first xpac on pc

it was really a flop all around. it's hitting 2500 players on pc and 8000 on consoles. i'm assuming because everyone is still playing battlefield 4, which still has player counts pushing 30k+ on pc/ps4, 20k on xbox1.

i also think it was a boring game and the kind of people who would be playing it on pc are probably already playing cs:go.

Interesting that he went with Beamdog instead of Obsidian. That said, he probably wouldn't have been able to get the same position at Obsidian, whereas he has a lot more leverage at Beamdog. Definitely interested in seeing how Beamdog handles their first original games.

i honestly figured he'd do some indie thing, or maybe focus on his (admittedly quite bad) novels. i remember him saying he was with bioware for too long, ready for new challenges, and he ends up with.. this? stepping back in time to work on an old project with the same old dialog systems he worked on for like 15 years at bioware?

Well, I think that entirely as a response to your videos that they need another beta to regain the trust necessary for a good launch.

It sucks, but some PC games are just dead on arrival, and fade after 1-2 weeks. Kinda makes me wish I was alright with playing on a console, they have the numbers to keep games alive.

i can't think of any games that bombed on PC but flourished on consoles.

also, ubisoft's sales are currently 20% pc, making it their second most significant platform with xbone rounding out the bottom of the next gen pack at 12% and ps4 at 27%. i don't think the difference is as big as people think.

though certain kinds of games certainly have their pet platforms. if i wanted to play call of duty multi for the rest of my days i'd buy an xbox one.

Consoles are where the money is at. Sorry, but it's the truth.

if you break it down as "pc versus all the consoles", sure. but PCs account for 20% of ubisoft's sales, their second most important platform. it's pushing almost double the numbers of the xbox one, ps4 is at 27% and the rest distributed among old systems.

the division being a next gen only title we can extrapolate that pc will account for about 1/3 of the sales with xbone rounding out the bottom of the pack. same thing that's happened for other major titles like the witcher 3.

brushing off the pc as irrelevant is misinformed.

i always bought IW's games for the campaign first and multiplayer second. the guys at respawn probably have the pedigree to put together something really solid.

I don't buy for a second that Halo Nightfall had a 100 Million dollar budget.

i don't know, defiance is what had the 100 million dollar budget. they were different examples.

I'll say that I'm interested in a single player campaign for this game. That said, I can't help but feel they are adding it because they (executives) didn't understand why it wasn't the success they were hoping it would be. I have no problem with devs dropping single player (or multiplayer for that matter) so they can focus on one aspect of the game. The problem with Titan Fall (imo) is it still felt like the multiplayer that gets tacked on to a single player game.

i agree with this in theory but look at the practice: you've got a developer with experience saying the campaign is 75% of the budget (granted, probably just to justify shitting out the f2p game he's working on), so sure, cut it out of the picture.. but then we end up with relatively empty online experiences like star wars battlefront (or to an extent the original titanfall), and they're still charging 60 dollars for the title and 40 for the "season pass".

Talk about shoddy journalism. At the BOTTOM of the article, there's a thing that says "Update:" and lists out that the GAME isn't cancelled, the YouTube video tutorial "Ultimate Game Dev" thing is. The story has (half-heartedly) been updated to reflect this, but the headline is still sloppy, and the clarification work is slipshod, at best, because, hey, click bait!

And people wonder why I no longer want to do anything with my Bachelor's of Journalism.

"UPDATE: Develop has been informed that the Kickstarter money referenced by Tereshinski in the above video refers to his crowdfunding campaign for the Ultimate Game Dev video series, which raised $4,459 rather than a Kickstarter campaign for Ant Simulator specifically. The game was instead funded by pre-orders offered directly throught the Ant Simulator website. The body of the text has been changed to clarify this."

their mistake was saying all the money wasted was entirely from kickstarter. the money wasted was from both kickstarter and pre-orders. ant simulator is still certainly canceled. the title of the resignation video eteeski posted is literally "Ant Simulator is canceled".

Something doesn't add up there. They blow all the money, but HE is not allowed to talk about anything or HE will get sued, and HE is offering refunds (from what money?)

Seems fishy all around.

he posts on some gamedev forums and from what i've gathered, he is a colossal fucking retard and signed a contract that rescinds control of the IP and made his two friends (seen here on the website splash page playing dress-up like adults)"consultants" which gave them carte blanche to spend money as "business meetings", etc. he can't release the project without them due to the contract so he's fucked.

classic mistake. newbie developers and programmers never seem to know how to spot "ideas guys" (aka fucking useless parasites) when they're starting out and do dumb shit like this all the time.
