Brad Wardell has always been a good spin doctor. Stardock has made some great games, but they have also made a lot of overhyped fluff as well.

Gameplay video sold separately.

There are two gameplay videos to watch...yes, they are separate but they are free! how can you pass that up?

Because someone, somewhere will complain about free. You just know it will happen so don't fight it!

I still can't fathom how you can have so cool a game concept and then execute it like you have completely forgotten what your initial pitch was.

"Lame" does not even come close to the right term.

News Comments > Hard Reset Redux Released
27. Re: Hard Reset Redux Released Jun 5, 2016, 10:17 Slashman
 
Hard Reset is a pure action shooter. It has a nice selection of weapons and upgrades with some stuff you don't see much in recent FPS games.

It's not an RPG, or a game with some kind of deep story telling. If you want to shoot various robots in very well-done, dystopian sci-fi levels, then get it and play it.

Everyone wants to act like the game promised something it didn't deliver. It was fun for me and I much more so enjoyed the additional DLC that they put out with the open areas outside the city. It has some big-ass bosses and honestly I don't know what else people were thinking it would be.

Grim Dawn still wins out for me over PoE so I don't see myself jumping back into this anytime soon.

Why???

Played the original and didn't really like it. It felt like a student project at times.

Likely because a lot of other folks have differing tastes than yours (thankfully).

I'm going to enjoy trying out the new version myself. Bring on the new robot overlords so I can kick them in the nads! Wait...where would the nads on a killer robot be located?

Is that some kind of punishment for moving there?

Is this the DLC that adds a goal to the game? Or is it still mostly a sandbox...
It's never not going to be a sandbox. You apparently want the Star Citizen single player game.

Well yeah That wasn't meant negative, just wondering if they ever plan to add something akin to .. you know.. a proper story, branching, decisions and stuff.

None of the Elite games has ever had that kind of content and I don't think they ever will.

Haha, that's a given from you Cutter, but Hey that's alright.

I finished a bunch of other games, but I admit still not done with PoE. I'm in Act 3, but took a detour to White March 100 hours in with my main as a kickass Monk dude.

Anyways, I'm interested to know what improvements they have planned. The story is pretty cool, reminds of Wheel of Time sorta, love the music, lore of the world, voice actors, writing, and tense combat. I really hate the Adra Dragon below Caed Nua though, Holy Shit man - can't figure out how to defeat her by combat.

Why is it a given for me? I've loved everything Obsidian/Black Isle has ever done...except POE. They didn't just drop the ball on this, they fucking shattered it. Given that the reviews are so mixed on this I'm utterly amazed they're even attempting to do a follow-up game for this. Just fucking abandon it already and get back to making good games.

The reviews are mixed? 90% on Steam. 89 on Metacritic. That's mixed?

Instead of Stellaris, people could also check out Star Ruler 2 and its expansion.

One of the best 4x space RTS games out there with epic scale, interesting diplomacy and oh...little things like building ring worlds and artificial planets, cap ships of ridiculous scale, blowing up whole star systems and creating black holes.

Just saying...

That looks good, I'll add that to the list. I jumped on Stelaris though because my collection of "Games like Master of Orion" is already too big and I didn't really enjoy even the ones that were meant to be good. Stelaris is hella fresh. Maybe thin and broken in places but it's a very different take on 4x. And because it's real time there is no "One more turn!" it's just a never ending stream of management issues and fear. Some people say the AI is too passive, but I'm not so sure. I think they are just doing the calculation where going to war against anyone who isn't super inferior to you is suicide because once your fleets are not at home you are open for a beating.

It feels like a 10x slower version of Sins of a Solar Empire. Not a bad thing at all.

Star Ruler 2 is not fast paced while still being all real time. And one of the things not apparent about it is that you can beat empires that are bigger and badder than yours by using diplomacy to do things like annex their planets, systems and artifacts by raising a vote in the galactic senate. If you are successful, the property gets ceded to you. No war declared.

You can pull crap like filibusters, use leverage against other empires or even screw them over by getting a vote passed that allows all other empires to see all their territory as if everyone had spy drones in each of their systems.

Lots of stuff to explore and discover in the galaxy and lots to keep you busy even if you're not at war.

Personally I like Stellaris a lot more than Stellaris, I'm not sure how they are even that close on the sales list.

Good one!

I know I like to be a contrarian on here, but shouldn't we be happy for the studio? They're finally free, they can all use the clout gained at working at one of the more prestigious game studios out there, and pursue whatever shit they want. Trust me, I bet there's sharks trying to pick up talent from them left, right, and center.

Who the fuck wants to spend more than 10 years at the same job anyways? or 5? Keep making sequels until your hair falls out. I know that if they got sold as a studio they might have been tasked with different projects, but who is going to buy a studio that's decently good at doing one thing, to have them work on something totally different? It could happen, but I don't think it's plausible.

I'm sad they lost their jobs, but I'm happy that they're free from M$.

What are you smoking? You're saying most people don't like job security?

Also, since when does spending 10 years at the same company equate to spending 10 years doing the same job? Most developers in companies move from position to position as they develop skills and show interest in different areas.

In addition, if these folks have families, and its likely a lot of them do, then a different job will likely mean moving a significant distance. So you're now uprooting your family. And we all know how fun that is to do.
