I like the past settings much more than the future ones so this is a good start. I hope it's not a more linear, story-driven game this time.

Random maps, story mode inside the endless mode like in 2205, but aside that, enemy AI on the same world, ship battles, diplomacy and trading

Game is not yet feature complete though, some things may end up out some may end up in.. we'll see I guess. Also far as I understand, that means no story driven mini-campaigns with specific goals, but (real) multi-stage long-term monuments are back

That at least, say the German Anno guys that played the alpha before GamesCom

Good! I just want a custom skirmish mode on a single map. If they want to build a plot around this, that can work out fine for me. I got the impression the future ones, 2070 and 2250, were more the other way around, the story-telling dictated everything else.

random map custom endless mode without story is definitely in ^^ But Anno 2205 did not really have a story just a really annoyingly gated progression... I actually REALLY liked the story campaign for Anno 2070 btw...

As I understand, they will take feedback into account this time... game is also still way over a year away.

If it really starts 1800 it will also start us outside of the industrial revolution I am guessing progression will be leading us through it, well, might be interesting, hope dies last ,)

Yeah.. DLC maps. Guaranteed way to kill off a game. I suppose they will announce the next BF installment soon and everyone will lose their minds.

Pretty sure that map will be "free" in a month or so, but yeah, not helping the dwindling population that's for damn sure. I haven't started the game in a month now... just can't bring myself to do it... oh well. More space on my SSD I guess...

How is DRM not a valid argument? The UWP stuff locks out game mods almost completely. Its a total walled garden.

But lets just ignore that and the even bigger issue of MS has fucked over its customers before with GFWL!

I 100% agree with the worry that Microsoft will abandon UWP on a whim like GFWL. *So far*, the games I've bought off the windows store are Xbox one crossplay compatible, so I SHOULD have a place to play them even if it goes to shit. The only sorta-assurance you've got is that MS plans on sticking to win10 forever.

I don't mind UWP's inability to be modded, but then I usually play thru a game and that's it...I don't go back, playing with various mods. There are SO many games on my backlog.

Anyway, the only UWP game I currently play is Forza Horizon 3, which is spectacular. Best simcade racing game made, period.

That fair enough, but imagine if a game like Total War: Warhammer, Factorio or KSP without mods. These games live and breath due to modding, heck, Skyrim doesn't even need mention. I don't think I played that unmodded for more than 3 hours ;p

UWP is really hard-core DRM too, if you wanna have a game tied to 1 specific OS and windows license.... well I don't want that. ^^

Hmm, that AoE IV trailer showed artwork depicting multiple historical Eras, from AoE 1 all the way to AoE 3.

Sadly it also showed absolutely no gameplay ;( But it seems it won't even go beyond the Napoleonic wars. No WW1, no WW2, no DIGITAL age.

Is it wrong for me to really want a sequel to Rise of Nations?

I can't remember a time where Square-Enix released a FF game so quickly on PC.

This does seem to be the quickest they've released a FF game on PC, which is a very nice change.

Indeed, and they seem to really put some effort into the ports as well... well, more or less effort, I am pretty sure we gonna need another "fixes something dll mod" for this game.

The first one was really well done. On a realistic car sim scale of 1 to 10, I guess an 8 would be my score. Where 10 is Richard Burns Rally of course.

I believe the AI does kind of use a simplified model, since I doubt our PCs could handle all of that simmulation at once.

Hmm. I actually read in an article where an actual professional Rally driver described Richard Burns Rally as even more difficult than reality so I'm not sure whether it's really as realistic as a lot of people claim.

For a game that doesn't simulate tire pressure, tire deformation and ground effect this is as good as it gets. But yes, default settings for grip/downforce were off, making cars have generally not enough grip (and on Asphalt, too much of it) mods fix that somewhat, but I simply do not play on Asphalt..., dunno how close the latest RBR mods are to realism, but they feel REALLY good on dirt tracks. Cars respond to what you are doing and you have instant feedback to anything that happens, you can sense over and understeer from the FF coming a mile away. Only game that got it truly right, which is why people say it's realistic I guess

At least compared to any Codemasters game. I guess it's often more about the feel than the actual realism. I found that other racing game.. eh.. Assetto Corsa for example, to have an incredibly bad feel to most of the cars.... (at high speeds)

Sadly it's absolutely insanely expensive. A "cheap" gasoline car here with a cost of around 1 per 100km is around 13k while the Tesla 3 (for example) is around 49k (and it costs 5 per 100km due to our power costs)

Meaning a small car is 5 times cheaper to tank (with gasoline) than charge with electricity in Germany.. bah ;/ No wonder we got no growth in this market.

Not sure where you're getting your numbers from. I've heard the Model 4 is 36.250 with VAT including incentives in Germany. Gasoline currently runs about 1.5 per liter in Germany. With fuel economy about 15km per liter, it costs about $10 to travel 100km.

You are correct... whoopsy, not sure what I was thinking about when I did that comparison (probably forgot a zero somewhere ,p), but a gasoline car obviously needs around 5l for 100km, and that's 7 ! Electric car is cheaper... at 5 well, unless you take battery replacement costs into account, but that is unfair in that comparison.

According to Tesla 3 price-list from AutoBild ( http://www.autobild.de/artikel/tesla-model-3-2017-infos-5215630.html ) , a feature complete Tesla 3 will cost 50,900 though basically, at that price point it's never economically feasible.

While the base price is supposed to be 21.400 Euro that is not what you pay here in Germany. ;(

I still have my physical hat I got with my Firefall gold founders pack, oh and the Audio CD from my Half Life 2 Gold founders pack ^_^

Honestly, throwing money at projects beyond the base game is usually a case of me just believing in the project, and wanting to show my support rather than getting DLC or unlocks or swag.

But you are clearly very picky You don't buy random founder packs from what I gather, the funny thing is for stuff like Hellgate: London I'd totally understand it too (even now, with mods, totally playable ;p) But for a f2p game where nothing is known, shown and playable?

And how many developers do you trust enough to support them this way nowadays?

Nothing Playable? This was playable way back in spring in PAX. Playing it then I knew I liked it enough as a Monster Hunter fan to support it. While it may not be the deepest when it comes to weapon combos (It's no DMC/Bayonetta/Nier Automata as far as combos goes) the fights with the monsters themselves are very deep and very challenging. It will definitely do well with the MH Fanbase on PC, at least until MH World if it makes it to Steam. And even then, I still currently enjoy Dauntless more than MH due to it cutting out all the bullshit fights with random little mobs and focusing on engaging and difficult boss fights.

But it ain't playable NOW But yeah, I completely missed that PAX thing, and a quick google shows plenty of gameplay. So mea-culpa I guess.

And yeah, from those vids it does look kinda interesting, but F2P.. nhhhghrghrhrh

I was just gonna say, how the hell do you have a 2D sidescroller MOBA? Clearly a game made by marketers.

Even better, it's a 2D sidescrolling beat-em up MOBA , I don't think those audiences really align.. but maybe that's just me.

Quick look at steamspy also puts in doubt that any market research was involved here. ^^

This reminds me, I still want an Anno game where I can colonize entire planets (maybe with 40 different resources and only 3 or 4 per planet) and do inter-galactic trade-routes....

Too bad these game ideas never get any big funding or dev teams ;/

Watched a bit of this anime with my daughter. It's your typical angsty Japanese teen drama, but set in an online RPG which no one can leave or they die IRL. Most games based on such properties are designed to appeal to said audience, and I would expect this will be no different.

I was unfortunate enough to see a portion of sword art online also. Although there are a couple good action sequences, I found that the plot was very forced and contrived, especially the romantic relationship between the main protagonist and the first female he befriends in the show. It's a good example of everything that is wrong with "modern" anime, IMO.

Have to agree ;/ Modern Anime has not evolved in a direction I find enjoyable at all. And SWO is one of these things I wish I hadn't watched. Not just because of that romantic thing, but because you couldn't know who any of these avatars were in real-life, that female could have been an old bloke in his 70ies. (That would have been a nice trope subversion btw..)

Either way, it had an interesting start, but the end... and this video has some super annoying zoomed in camera views...

So wait, this is published by Focus and developed by Sabre. So the original developer's not involved in this at all?
He is. He now works for the new studio.

Is that how it went? So he was "canned" from the previous dev team and not paid properly, and this new team with new publisher basically sell version 2.0 of Spintires with him at the wheel again?

If so that would be a happy end considering the crap that went on before with Spintires. Either way, very fun tech demo, hopefully this tech will end up in other games because the water and mud/stone simulation is absolutely amazing.
