To be honest, graphics weren't the only problem of that "game".. since there was barely anything to actually do and all these fancy systems were so halfheartedly implemented... doubt this one is going to be better on that front.

Gawkers temper trantrum (Facebook sounds like a cult)

Don't click ;p You only give them pageviews which makes them more valuable when they are sold off because they got pwned by a court.

Creating Cutting-Edge Sci-Fi with Practical Effects.

Totally looking forward to this. I love hard, contemplative sci fi. Mark Strong is an amazing actor who has long worked in the shadow of others, often stealing their thunder (i.e. Kickass and Sherlock Holmes). The cinematography looks great, and the effects look totally realistic and immersive.

Sadly the movie is boring and extremely unrealistic... not the effects mind you, but the whole entire idea of that mission.

Are they going to reinstate the kickstarter now?

What they asked in the KS wouldn't have financed a game like the one they pitched anyway... and apparently neither can the money Team17 wanted to invest.

How long do you think its going to be before the Vanilla Classic WoW fan complains about the improvements and starts a petition?
Well, there is one valid point ... increasing the view distance destroys the illusion of walking over a vast continent. You see Azeroth for what it really is ... a collection of small, gimmicky zones.

That illusion is pretty quickly gone when you take the airship or griffon

The new Skellige deck is just kind of straight up bullshit.

Play Cerys: Horde 3 Warrior Maidens, who strong bond. Boom, one card, 58 (!!) points of damage on the fucking board. For most decks, 58 damage is a good fucking ROUND.

They should have called it the "We don't know how to program decent Gwent AI, so we just created this bullshit deck in an effort to have it be challenging." deck

Like playing against the monster deck, make sure your deck isn't full of melee cards and make sure you have at least one frostbite card.

Yeah it's not that I'm not winning against it, but it just feels cheap. Surrendering a round is a valid tactic, and having a deck just automatically play 2 cards from the graveyard "because it's round 3" is just bullshit. If the picks are lucky, the Skellige deck pulls two of your spies from his graveyard and gets FOUR cards in his hand. FOUR. How is that a perk that's even remotely comparable to

Northern Realms: Pick a card if you win a round
Monsters: One monster card stays on the table
Nilfgaard: Win a tie. (happens roughly once every 500 rounds)
Scoiatel: You may pick if you want to go first in the first round. (lol, what a bonus!!)

I mean, it's so laughably overpowered especially compared to Nilfgaard and Scoiatel.

I like some of the changes they made, such as horde cards now working on Siege and Ranged rows as well (so their entire deck can't just get ganked by a single frostbite, like the monster deck can), and some of the other things it does just seem weirdly situational, but that Cerys+Horde+Bond combo is just ludicrous. If he already has a warhorn lying on the melee row, playing Cerys would put 106(!!!!) freaking points down. WITH ONE CARD!

Edit: My math is even off, I think. Warrior Maidens are 6 each, so 3 strong bonds would make them 18 each, so 54+10=64 without warhorn or 54x2+10=118 o_O with warhorn.




Scorch is very useful there. also Northern Realms has a free warhorn on siege as skill, and scoiatel can disable a hero ability. Those are leaders you gotta find but.. well, you can find them

When people compare these both games, often they mean that in the "you shoot stuff and press hotkeys for skills, and that feels the same in both games" sense...

Nothing more, nothing less. Gameplay wise these games are very similar as well, many characters that feel the "same" and many skills identical to each other... that 1 is arena and 1 is moba is another matter.. doesn't really make them incomparable though

Just another day in the world of Paradox doing paradoxial things...

Some of the comments on the article wonder if it has anything to do with Paradox entertaining buyout offers from Tencent, and as a result wanting to control information that might misrepresent the state of their finances.

But surely they know what a google cache is, right? Because I can see all sales numbers still with a simple search result -> examples
Pillars of Eternity - 698,520
EU4 - 926,943
Skylines - 2,243,061
HOI2 complete - 76,089
EU3 - 430,027
Crusader Kings 2 - 1,236,755
Stellaris - 411,160
etc......

So pointless... any investor has seen this information way before they even attempted the buyout. And even Tencent can click "show cache" on a google search...

Apparently Steam didn't read it's own shop TOS which clearly forbids uploading anything to the store for which you don't own the right.

It's a cliché even we Europeans know about, so I assume for the most part that many people know what a donut is.

But fact of the matter is they are not popular here

I wouldn't say she's worth "nothing."

When she goes to jail for widespread fraud, she will be worth a few bucks for every day she works while she's incarcerated.

In reality should the company go down she would likely get no money out of her stock though, so at least there is that... ;p

The problem with the DLC and blood and Wine is that the game suggests that you only start B And W with at least a level 34 character. Do I bother even trying with my level 31 character or do I have to grind out 3 more levels before attempting Blood and Wine? Would dropping the game difficulty help? Anyone else having this issue?

As long as you are above level 20 you should be able to handle literally anything in this game, assuming your dodge skills are up to par

That sounds a lot more reasonable and a lot less dire. He can throw a medium party.

The devs might be okay but the parent company sounds like typical bunch of PR scumbags:

https://www.reddit.com/r/gamedev/comments/4i6m40/_/


The barn is a good example on why I gave up on this entire industry.. I am 3d modeler, I can texture, but only buildings/objects... I can barely make my own textures but when I do it increases the costs 10 fold (yes, 10 times!), the more realistic the worse it gets for me, as every single surface I need in high detail basically requires me to set aside an entire work process just for that surface, and make sure that all surfaces with that texture actually fit my planned tiling... it's agonizing nightmare.

And then you get noobs talking to you over skype asking "why is that face there? I had my nephew remove it" kinda stuff. RAGE IN THE MACHINE

And that court screwed up big time on that Kraftwerk case.


The BVG doesn't screw up, it is the highest instance that defines law. So when such a decision is reached, that is very literally law Aka, what results of the exact definition of the legal text in the law itself.

In reality I was on the side of Kraftwerk though, because what they originally wanted wasn't money, but that the dude before sampling your track kindly INFORMS you (not ask, inform!) and this I would consider an absolutely correct thing to want... also I hate Moses Pelheim with a passion, he is a true and proper arse. But apparently the law is on his side.

And we talk about creative copying being illegal, just imagine, no ESC 2017 since these things often copy melodies 1:1... ah one can dream.

I know the newer Total War games get a lot of hate on here, but I'm really liking this new one. They have some new settlement mechanics that work a lot better than juggling public order/pestilence, and the battles are really fun with all the crazy units everyone has. I only hope the late-game hero spam gets addressed, but other than that I heartily recommend this.

Hero spam and marching stance raid/raze abuse by the AI are biggest issues imo Aside that great game. Of course, will be a far greater game when we have bigger more bad-ass mods.
