Hrm, definitely not a good sign; I was trying to look this game up on Steam to see what it's all about, now the Necro page just redirects to the Steam Store main page.

Another Early Access collapse, oh well.

The page was there up to yesterday. They seem to have taken it offline now. The discussion forums are still working but not the store page.

In principle I don't have anything against Early Access games. What I do think is that too many developers get comfortable with having a game in EA perpetually and it starts to look like they will never leave EA. Or they never had a plan in the first place.

Most of the good EA games are ones with a clear plan that is being followed by the devs to get the game to a retail-ready state.

In this case, they underestimated the funding they would need and then turned to Early Access but still didn't finish the game. That's bad business right there.

I'm on the 'wait and see' bandwagon but I really do want to play this if it is good.

I'm really surprised by this. Why are they even bothering?

Did Titanfall 1 do much better than I thought?

I'm sorry but the opinion of one disgruntled former employee, or even a few, is not convincing evidence of a sinking ship, nor is a game still clearly in development a failed experiment. No doubt CR has unrealistic ambition, but this has been known for decades, and is actually is reason I backed the project at $150. Foolish? Maybe. But I'm taking the risk to see how it plays out.

Uhhh..Rob Irving isn't some nobody in the industry. So I'd be way more willing to take what he says seriously compared to Derek Smart.

I love the game, but I do have to say you have to enjoy the playstyle of a given faction. They are really quite varied and don't suit everyone's tastes. For example, I'm not a particular fan of the Cultist gameplay. It's a neat concept, but I don't enjoy the one city setup.

Of course, you can always edit your faction to suit your playstyle too.

It's true. There are factions I haven't played yet because I kind of know the playstyles I like. The Allayi are a very interesting one though. Dual personalities and forms. They play differently to all the other races.

Tons better than it was at launch. The Guardians and Shadows DLC really added to it and the new Shifters brings a whole new dimension to playing and seasonal changes.

Lots of free content for the base game was added too so it is still worth a look.

How long can they actually go on like this though?

Rob Irving even says in an interview that Chris doesn't want to put the brakes on and just say no to anything. It is one of the reasons he walked away.

So how long can they keep up funding this type of development practice?

Everyone wants to jump on the "easy money" F2P train.

No one checks the actual state of the tracks and where they friggin' end up.

Shadow warrior is definitely worth it a that price.

Indeed it is but my question is why is there this sudden silence on the sequel? There was a big news dump and then a long silence since then with nothing new to show or no word from the developers.

I actually bought the first one, found out you couldn't even remap your keys, and promptly asked for a refund.

Their developer is incompetent, will never buy another game from them.

If you can't get 101 stuff right, get out of the business.


That was ENTIRELY your loss!!! Congratulations on your shallowness! Party Thumbsup Rolleyes

Modern gaming is mostly flash little substance with a few gems here and there.

And that's what most entertainment is, a diversion. What else is it supposed to be? I don't game to get educated, I game for an escape. Same thing with music and film. I want to learn I watch a documentary or read a book. Going from MUDs to Everquest was fucking awesome! It wsa what most PnPers and MUDers had been dreaming about for years.

This. Most of the people who complain that modern games have lost their soul etc etc apparently don't realize that a lot of the mechanics they ticked the boxes on for 'hardcore' back in the day existed because technology was so limited that the developers had to settle for attempting more with less

Not sure how the hell you got burnt out on the first game when it was so freaking short. The second one was better with more options and game modes plus Co-Op.

I want a proper sequel. Not this MOBA shite everyone seems to feel obligated to try. F2P sucks donkey testicles.
