News Comments > Pillars of Eternity II Expansion and Patch

Hrm, interesting. I already finished my first PoEt 2 run though, I'll probably wait until all these smaller DLCs come out and get patched up, before starting another run through.

Plus Pathfinder:Kingmaker and Bard's Tale IV...

The RPG cup overfloweth, Bard's Tale IV, Pathfinder:Kingmaker, DLC for PoEt 2... it's looking good. No crazy bug complaints yet either, although I may wait a few weeks to really get into either BT4 or P:K.

Backed both, chose Gog keys for both.

Good thing we have these trusty agencies to prevent monopolies. Oh wait, that sort of consumer protection went out of the US in the 70s.

First thought: "oh that's nice, they have pics of some old arcade games, and some info blurbs, cue nostalgia"

Realization: "Holy shit, these are all playable online via emulator!"

Now I just need to quit my job to have the time to play all my current games, along with randomly playing old coin-op arcade games online.

Still, very nice work, MAME team and Esmcripten people! And of course Internet Archive's efforts!

meanwhile, DICE is doing an about face on their art direction of Battlefield V and making it look more like a WWII game an less like an alt-history Mad Max WWII game.

Shit, now I have to buy BFV and run around in the most exotic gear possible; cybernetic enhancements and day-glo colors it is.

Ugh, who is to blame for this subset of multiplayer survival/griefing simulators? Rust, Arc, etc. any of these Ultima Online ripoffs that haven't made any real progress in the past 20 years in terms of mechanics, just better graphics; it's a little annoying to me just how many human hours are getting tossed into making these PKfests.

Looks pretty but it'll be the same Lord of the Flies clusterfuck as the last dozen or so.

I mean, I'm sure they will make some money, people who live for Twitch seem to also play these games to a certain extent, but come on, humanity.

Where is that next gen, FUN, new MMO?

250 Employees, at Telltale !??! No wonder they are going out of business. Their games were not that popular to support that kind of staff.

I've said it before, I'll say it again -- it would be interesting to see how history will regard this time we live in. I'd love to take a history class on "US Politics 2000-2025" in say, 2200 or so. I can only hope it be looked back on as a naive time which we have risen above... (and yes, I realize that could have a right or left spin)

This will be seen as a second Dark Ages. Religious and racial extremism rampant across the entire globe, let alone the US, people deliberately ignoring scientific evidence world wide, the final clamp down of corporate power over most of human civilization. I doubt there will be anyone left alive to teach a history class in 2200, honestly.

Man, I was for 3 seconds hyped until I remembered that nothing good ever comes from Warhammer RPG announcements

Basically this, but surely they can't mess up the ARPG format too much?

j/k that's literally one of the harder genres to get right, as evidenced by truckloads of shit ARPGs.

CoD ripoff of Left 4 Dead and Strange Brigade? Not interested personally, but I'm sure it'll make a billion dollars.

Interesting premise, although the trailer doesn't really look like anything special. I'll keep an eye on this, I can't get enough of good XCom variations.

Can some company for the love of jeebuz acquire the rights for "Nocturne"? Was I the only one that lived when that game came out and blew me the f**k away? Who the hell else knows what I'm talking about. I never hear anyone mention of it. It was pure badass for it's time. I'd even love to buy it now with proper Win10 support.

I remember Nocturne well, the idea was great, the controls were... well it's unfair to say horrendous, because there was an autoaim option, but oh my god, talk about fighting the controls! Also I remember it being extremely buggy, at least the initial release. Still on CDs?

I don't remember playing any patched version later on, so maybe it got better.

Also, I remember it being the Crysis of its time, in that it ran at like 5-10fps on midrange computers of the day.

Two pistols John Woo style, fighting vampires and werewolves for Theodore Roosevelt, cool. Two pistols, attempted to be mapped to mouse controls in a slightly isometric 3d environment even with those weird laser sights? Made me rage. It's been awhile but I swear there was an option to map each arm to a different control set or something? Lol, basically I had issues with the controls.

It's one of those games that needs a patched up re-release on GoG, now that it can run at a real framerate for everybody.

It's cool that you love it though, Xero... reminds me of Soldiers of Anarchy for me, which about 3 people played world wide, and was crazy awesome.

I don't get some of these remakes like this... I mean I enjoyed Fallout:NV, but I don't think I enjoyed it enough to do another 200+ hour run through the game, just because it's in a slightly better engine.

Part of the appeal(in making the mod) is that it is a labor of love for the developers of course, but who even has time to play these remakes?

*EDIT* Grammar.

One story: "Almost half of US cellphone calls will be scams"

Another story: "FEMA to use cellphones to put out Presidential Alerts"

I see a potential issue here...

Also, let's keep people in constant fear, that'll help.
