This feels like a lawsuit waiting to happen. Dead of Winter is the name of a popular board game. I have my doubts they gave permission for the name to be used.

That the above wasn't in there yet baffles me. It is new ammunition to my decision to stay far away from this game until it's released. I also don't really get it: when I look at vids, the game just looks like a Divinity OS 2 Expansion. Yet if that's even remotely the case, how come such a basic feature as referred to in the above quote -- that was included in DOS2 -- wasn't in BG3 EA yet? I guess that's good news, and the game isn't just a rehash of DOS2 assets and codes.

I know I'm old, but why would anyone play this wank, let alone want to watch anyone else play this wank. No matter the side-boob.
Yeah, never mind the content, but I don't see the appeal of the "visual novel" style of game at all.
For those who are interested in seeing if this is for you, one of the "best" examples of the genre is available free on Steam. Warning: Not for children or those who are easily disturbed. Dreyerdaughter, huge anime fan, quit 20 minutes in.

Whoever had the idea to make this a poetic ode video with this many cuts from the actual point of the video SERIOUSLY needs to rethink their life choices. Doom 2 cardboard should be full-blast heavy metal and screams of awesome destruction! So what if it's not 10 minutes... it could have been an awesome 3 minute video.
Yup....but no one can bring themselves to just make something neat anymore, they have to make sure everyone sees them jerking themselves off over it as well.

If Dyson Sphere has no combat its worthless to me anyone know if it has enemy AI to break up the boredom?
I also don't get the attraction of these games, where you just build more and more complex factory sims, without any real drama or reason for playing. I mean in SimCity I had to deal with increasing complexity and keeping my population healthy, happy and safe. There was a real sense of accomplishment in that game.

Dyson Sphere program is Factorio on crack (and factorio itself was crack... so dyson sphere would be speed balls?) . Like an expanded 3d version of it requiring planetary involvement as opposed to railways. LOVE the liquid extraction (it puts them in packaged bars in conveyor, back to liquid when it hits a tank) it was a cute way of doing it, hope it isn't replaced by pipes in the future.
Though with a TON of similarities (resources, mining, storage, recipes, terrain manipulation, research, research items [even the colors are the same to start for research items] automation / transport... basically the whole game is a copy of Factorio that's been expanded) it'll be interesting to sere if it spawns any legal issues.

Uh huh, all the Ray Tracing?
I'd be worried about missing the storyline, so I have to sexup to catchup , on the original HuniePop.
Do they get pregnant and call you up the next day, or only if you hit enough bingos?
