That could mean this or that But there is a very famous documentary of a full birth that.. I could not watch for more than a few seconds before turning off... horror movies is more like it

Given that I still run an Phenom II X6 ...

Power and thermal efficiency (where is that fan-less I7 design ...) would be hugely welcome here.... but GPU's certainly should not focus on that. To run VR at 120fps in modern engines you need essentially a beast of a GPU that hasn't even been designed yet. And CPU *IS* a factor for that, since 120fps means that the main loop runs 120 times a second as well, otherwise you have simulation lag, which would be even worse than just visual delay.

"could" meaning others could, but not me. My first campaign (non-iron man) took me 40 hours with plenty of save scumming and overwatching every turn after moving a few squares. I'm still assuming XCOM 2 is artificially shorter with the urgency of the countdoom doom clock thing.

The doom clock can be very effectively held back from what I experienced so far... 16 hours in it's at 4 bars... you can focus down the end-goal but it doesn't seem very smart to do that, since you can not do research while you do that. So you have to balance that vs research vs missions and vs squad health. Gravely wounded soldiers are around 2 to 4 weeks out. And this hampers your ability severly, higher ranked soldiers are extremely powerful (though I think you could win every mission with a rookie squad (that has full tech armor and plasma) too, you just need to savescum a ton)

Im playing "semi-iron man" mode for my first play through. I only load when I seriously mess up and am in danger of failing a mission. Wounded soldiers and even an occasional soldier loss Im fine with, I do a lot of rotations so that I can man at least two full squads at all times.

You will reconsider that stance on the Avenger Defense mission 37+ kills.. 6 injured ^^ The hardest mission in the game

So yeah, I beat the game btw, 28 hours on Veteran. The end fight was.. let's just say, special. Too bad there is so little real story.. it would be nice to learn a bit more about the actual aliens.

For me the 2 expansions were biggest disappointment of all my KS projects so far because they were mid-game expansions, and this game has ZERO replay value imo.

Hrm, that's a shame, I'm on my third playthrough right now. Oh well, not every game is going to be great for everybody.

Luckily we're in a bit of a RPG rich environment right now, and I think the various companies made enough off of the current crop that all the studios realize there is a real RPG market out there.

Well yeah, nothing to be gained by being angry or anything, plenty of great RPG's PoE was great first time, but couldn't really stomach these combat mechanics a second time...

Well I broke my cardinal rule and pre-ordered XCOM 2 from GMG, got a nice 20% coupon straight up too so that was pretty nice. Pre-loading on Steam as we speak.

My preload is complete...now to the waiting. Wreck

Only 6 more hours.. yes GMG offer was too good to pass ;p

TRUST PETER WITH YOUR MONEY!

I would trust Peter with my money before I would trust Chris Roberts. At least Peter stayed in the gaming industry and didn't head off to the UK equivalent of Hollywood to produce shitty movies for seven years.

Patience is that thing that allows you to wait and see. We'll see what happens with SC soon enough, meanwhile we already saw what happened with Godus... which is failed project by any definition.

Patience allowed me to put my money in around January 2013 and WAIT until July 2015. Nothing happening, forced a refund.

Well you put in a LOT of money I didn't so my patience is exponentially bigger ^^ Also the PTU is "playable" ... but in alpha

Heck I have 3 KS projects funded (including SC) that are still way out

Bloodstained - Ritual of the Night
Star Citizen (pledged 25.10.2012 !)
MAIA

My patience for a project is pretty big as long as it trudges along.

News Comments > Diablo III Season Rebirth Reminder
4. Re: Diablo III Season Rebirth Reminder Feb 3, 2016, 19:34 eRe4s3r
 
For me, the biggest issue is that the game lacks any sort of meta progression once you hit item quality density (ie, mostly all good sets and drops / rings and jewels for your fav char, for me that's WD). There isn't a big war in the background that is for my "group" or for my SOLO chars only where anything I do might have a point, there isn't meta progression in the various camps, there is no way to expand them or mount an ever increasing war against demonic forces. There are no overarching events, no dynamic happenings, nothing new or fresh. The game world feels, the more I play in it, completely lifeless and stale. And these newer features made this feeling worse, much much worse.

What Blizzard did with the adventures and rifts is what is worse, because essentially they made the questing and exploration a menu that you click linearly through and you gain a fixed reward that never changes much. (Ok, it's a good reward on T10, but still, utterly pointless if you are fully equipped and cheese T10 SOLO).

Rifts offer nearly no challenge, since they are always the same (and yeah, big fucking woohoo when bosses in rifts die within 20 seconds and drop 1 or 2 decent things... and greater rifts only give you tiny percentage increases after a certain point (specifically after rift level 40)

It's come to the point where I think that this game has the opposite of a content problem. Yeah they add new areas and monsters every now and then, but what they aren't doing is add new gameplay within those zones. New item qualities beyond legendary and set, or simply put, something that feels fresh and new.

Kanais Cube is also kinda limited and once you get your class-specific "uber" items slotted (you likely know what I mean with that) there isn't much reason to touch it. What is imo even worse, is that at least for WD there are very specific items that are just FLAT OUT BETTER than anything else you could ever slot there.

At this point it has to be said, what this game needs is not new patches, it's a new expansion that brings us closer to the lore (Lilith, Nephalem etc.) and gives us some kind of dynamic area where we can do stuff that somehow has a progression beyond loot. Or maybe progression with loot (we give it to our camp, they get stuff from it)

And what I would also like is some way to fuse items in a companion beasts that you then sent to war or whatever. So that all those loots you find may have an actual point still.

The real question is whether after XCOM2 and it's supposed awesome mod support, Xenonauts 2 will not be made completely moot (if modders implement those "new" ideas straight into XCOM2 I mean)

Especially since this is gonna be 3D

They would probably need do that regardless of what they can release Considering they have serious debt issues

I'm probably going to get a lack of flake for this but EA providing free games is pretty cool. So far EA has given away Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2, Jade Empire: Special Edition and now NFS Most Wanted.

And Ultima VIII, Syndicate, Sim City 2000, Wing Commander III and Crusader: No Remorse. They have a new freebie every two months. I'm not sure when they started exactly so there might have possibly been even more free games but those are the ones I claimed for free and, yeah, that's really great of them. Origin has developed into a pretty customer friendly platform.

Now if EA would stop dumbing down games to retard status (Battlefront) and also adopt their DLC and pricing strategies to a less obvious rip-off model, well, then this could be the beginning of a wonderful friendship but we have a loooong way to go...


And Bejeweled 3, Peggle, Zuma's Revenge, Sims 2, Dragon Age: Origins (w/o DLC) and Theme hospital as well

Talk about shoddy journalism. At the BOTTOM of the article, there's a thing that says "Update:" and lists out that the GAME isn't cancelled, the YouTube video tutorial "Ultimate Game Dev" thing is. The story has (half-heartedly) been updated to reflect this, but the headline is still sloppy, and the clarification work is slipshod, at best, because, hey, click bait!

And people wonder why I no longer want to do anything with my Bachelor's of Journalism.

A quick google search actually would have showed you that Ant Simulator was not funded via KS (And yes, is really canceled)
