Make more Red Alert 3's and you've got an audience. The twitch RTS genre is niche, but there's a lot more out there than that. Starship Troopers Terran Command was pretty decent, certainly not Starcraft 2, and it sold alright.

Personally, though, I stick to turn based strategy games mostly these days. I'm too old to think on the fly

but Epic is playing this one closer to the vest, listing it as a "Mystery Game."

Crime Boss is on deep discount this week. Last gasp before getting offered up?

Like Amazon, the 3rd party sellers keep me from buying much from them. May as well buy the counterfeit product directly from the vendor on AliExpress

The reviews would indicate that it's a good idea to try the demo, as there are many reports of terrible performance on high end PCs. Seems like a very bad port considering it runs well on consoles.

It's a great engine. Battlefield, Fifa, Madden, Dragon Age, Mass Effect etc. They have put quite a bit of work into the engine for what it's produced.

It's a bad engine. Devs in-house hate it, the toolchain for it is worse than the alternatives and all of the non-Dice projects were made worse due to the EA mandate that it had to be used to save them on licensing fees. There have been some hilarious post mortems from ex-Bioware employees about how awful it was to use, DA:I in particular would've landed in a totally different state. That's without touching on Anthem.

Heck even Dice has struggled with it immensely. Glad to see EA is finally letting studios use alternatives again.

Without any particular notable features to differentiate it from other engines, it's a bad choice, but when it had dynamic/destructive environments, it was a hell of an interesting choice because contemporary engines didn't really support that type of dynamic environment manipulation(maybe UE does now? not 10-15 years ago, though), but EA has been walking that back over time

Ill be close to my 50's before this game comes out on PC. Oh well, at least by then Ill probably have a powerful enough PC to play it on.

More powerful than a Xbox S or a Playstation 5? That doesn't even require trying <3

No kidding, they need to release on all platforms at the same time. My gaming PC is far and above better than any console out today by a long shot...

FWIW Rockstar is notorious for poorly optimized PC releases

Robocop was great. There's some replay value there perhaps. I tend to play a game once and leave it behind, as I've done with Robocop, so those daily numbers from this week won't include me. Super happy with it, it's much more polished than Terminator Resistance (which I also enjoyed), and I'll buy whatever Teyon shovels at me in the future

Wait, EVE is F2P? Since when?

Last I checked it was alone with WoW as the last remaining big MMOs with a monthly sub fee.

Does FF14 have that?

You're also able to pay for your subscription in in-game currency, and have been for as long as I can remember.

It amazes me that GTA is written so horribly and everyone is so unlikeable, but the same team writes RDR, which feels so ridiculously well done.

GTA is very cynical, satirical, and highly exaggerated where RDR is played straight and deliberately poignant. I feel like both are well done, but I don't mind either style. Perhaps you do?

stargate's time has come and gone. that squad shooter FPS they cancelled in 2006 would have been the right game at the right time.

i'm struggling to think of a more cursed popular IP. i would have said the wheel of time but even that finally managed to shamble to television.

Battlestar Galactica is pretty cursed (purely by NBCUniversal's missteps), even if Deadlock was pretty decent.

F Paradox and their DLC spamming. Prison Architect, Cities Skylines, Battletech, Age of Wonders - all ruined for me because of their awful awful DLC policies. No love making games, just making more money. To me I loathe them just as much as Activision or EA. As soon as any indie game gets gobbled up by Paradox, the game goes down the drain, that is my experience.

I thought the battletech DLC was fine. Mostly because the main game was huge and fully featured, and the DLC gravy. Not the kind of gravy one got at full price on release but sure was ncie on sale. Maybe thats the paradox cancer you are talking abou though.

That's because you actually understand how DLC is supposed to work. DLC is *extra*. DLC is *optional*. DLC funds years and years and years of post-release support. I've never understood how people don't understand this and the blind, uninformed vitriolic hatred of Paradox for their DLC policies.

1)Is the base game complete? Yes
2)Is the DLC perpetually on sale? Yes (generally speaking)
3)Does Paradox routinely sell packages of DLC, sometimes including the base game, at the initial release price? Yes. Not every year or anything, but yes.
4)Do Paradox games allow you to play w/ someone who has different portions of the DLC than what you have? Yes.
5)Does Paradox routinely offer Day 1 DLC as a way to pay *LESS* for the game if you don't want certain aspects? Yes. (i.e. you can buy the game for 60 bucks on release if you want certain bells & whistles *OR* you can buy it for 40 bucks and just have unit icons instead of animated soldiers... then you can buy the animated soldiers later for 30 bucks if you want... the option is yours).

Paradox does DLC right.

Do they screw up sometimes? Absolutely. Cuz they do a *LOT* and experimentation means intermittent failure. Sometimes big time failure. But I'll take them every day of the week over virtually every other publisher out there.

What are the options? Either gamers stupidly demand *ALL THE CONTENT* for free, which, well, we're talking gamers here... the most entitled and whiny base out there (aside from maybe Star Wars fans) or you get just the base game and nothing else.

GIve me optional and frequently discounted DLC every day of the week please.

People need to learn to think critically and quit whining about stuff that isn't wrong.

Prison Architect, Cities Skylines... seriously wonderful base games with ONE HUNDRED PERCENT OPTIONAL DLC. See what I mean about the level of entitlement of gamers? People are actually labeling games as "down the drain" because the quality core base game has optional content available. And for this, they get compared to EA and Activision.

Gamers, as a group, disgust me.

Ultimately, it's a question of how to keep a game going while keeping yourself in business. Would people prefer a subscription, paid DLC, or pay2win mechanics in a non-F2P game? Or would they prefer game support is dropped and the dev move on to a new full priced game?

HBS Battletech II Kickstarter. 10/10, would back again.

100% this. Unfortunately, from what I know of Weisman, my guess is Paradox was trying to push him to do Battletech 2 and he didn't want to.

EDIT: Paradox retains ownership of the Battletech game so that suggests Battletech 2 would come from them not HBS

According to what's been discussed prior to today, Paradox doesn't have the rights to make a sequel. HBS pitched Battletech 2 and Paradox declined because the IP licensing was not worth it(so Lamplighters was born). If that's the case, Paradox may have the rights to the original game, but that doesn't mean HBS couldn't get the rights to make a sequel (spiritual as it may be, the naming would still be Battletech oriented)

If you tried their Terminator Resistance game, you have an idea what to expect. Nothing groundbreaking, but solid enough to keep you coming back to completion. That and noticing they're made by big fans of the source material.

Terminator Resistance was initially rough, but it got better as it went on and I was very happy with the final act. It was overall a good game with what I thought was actually a pretty good and well done story. I'll certainly give this an honest try.

And on a side note, I've been pretty happy with these non-AAA licensed titles lately. BSG Deadlock, Terminator Resistance, and Starship Troopers Terran Command were all pretty solid games

Odyssey is one of my favorite AC experiences. It's a fantastic game that's both deep and wide. I got somewhere around 100-150 hours out of it. This one apparently clocks in at 20 hours according to one of the reviews, but it's still a full priced game. I'll wait for it to go up on deep discount on Fanatical or something with that in mind
