It would be too expensive to get the movie actors for the game and it would feel odd if they looked like them but sounded different. No gameplay yet but I can't wait for this!

I have no problem getting it on Epic store if it means the devs get a bigger cut and it forces Steam to up their game.

Honestly have no idea what kind of game that is even gonna be from this trailer alone, had to google what they were talking about with the PnP reference as well.

It sure doesn't look like an RPG.. so what is it?

First person narrative adventure game.

Decent game especially in co-op but the loot system is a bit clunky.

Real alpha means you are reasonably close to release. It means everything works but there are bugs and some of the assets might not be final. This sounds about right.

I respect them from trying something different. The very first dungeon in the game was harder than some WoW raids if that says something

Cyanide has a spotty history making average games at best but I am hopeful for this.

I don't fault the publishers for doing this at all. In the end, why make less money when you can make more money? The blame lies with the consumers who buy these things. All it takes is 1% conversion among all users to cover the development costs (and potential lost sales due to the practice) and make a profit.

Arts and music major with no IT or tech schooling, eh?

If true, that's a bit of a red flag I'd think. I see a bit more than wrist slapping about to go down.

I don't think that means anything. Loads of people come out with degrees they never use and go into other fields. I studied history and ended up working as a tech monkey and sales engineer in IT for over a decade. The rest of it's been hospitality. Neither of which my education would have applied to. With the exception of something really educationally specific like medicine or engineering anyone can learn anything on their own and go on to do that.


Agreed. It makes for a nice headline but means little in practice.

News Comments > Divinity: Original Sin 2 Released

10 hours in. The game is fantastic! but...

It's HARD! There's no shame in dropping difficulty to easiest. In the beginning on classic mode you are very underpowered and need to acquire some gear quickly as your characters are essentially naked with no armor.

The game has a bug for me and some other people on Steam forums. Once you get past a certain plot point one area of the game becomes prone to freezes making the game basically unplayable in that section.

After this point the game has started crashing for me every time I load a game, forcing me to restart and load from main menu.

Since this is in the start of the game and so apparent I am sure there will be a hotfix for it next week. I still recommend it heartily!

Sebastien Puel was one of the pioneers who worked on the series’ earliest games before becoming Executive Producer for Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Black Flag, and others. “We never expected AC to be such a success,” Puel says. “We were passionate about history, but not sure it could have a mainstream wide appeal. I remember of the programmers referring to a cool game feature and saying, ‘With this one, we will sell one million copies!’ We are well past 100 million today.”

Proof positive that for some in the industry it's all about the almighty dollar. Slimy.

Nah I'd say that's a bit unfair. In the end if it sells a lot of copies it is an indication that someone likes it and it allows you to keep your job and keep making more.

9. Re: Valve Teases Artifact: The Dota Card Game Aug 9, 2017, 14:42 Bopper
 
I love card games but with Hearthstone, ES Legends, Gwent and many others the digital space is already oversaturated.

If someone put a new twist on it, for example if you had a card/dice CCG with a strong IP (something like Star Wars: Destinies) that might work.

I know someone who knows someone who worked there who said Chris Roberts kept showing up to work with a new Porsche every 2 months and ordered a 60k dollar espresso machine only he could use poor backers.

I hope it's not too open world, I liked the focused level design and some semi-open areas of the second one.

News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront II May Feature Microtransactions

I'm pretty sure gear, heroes, etc. will be locked in the start and then unlocked via exp/Battlepoints/whatever which you can buy with real money, a la For Honor.

Unless you pre-order or buy X or Y in which case you unlock stuff right away. I hope I am wrong. If you only unlocked cosmetic stuff that would be nice but I doubt that monetises enough unless you have a healthy player-base for a long time, i.e. Overwatch, LoL.

I assume they are getting help from Blizzard on PC port. I am optimistic that they will treat the PC platform with respect; Battle.net is a solid platform.

I'm sure there was some legit reason for this. As a developer there are often times when you can't meet consumer demands due to reason X and Y, especially when a publisher is also in the mix.

That being said, it would be interesting to know the reason why there wasn't a PC demo.

Yep I would have preferred a more sandbox style MMO myself but as far as theme-park MMO's go, ESO is decent.
