News Comments > Xenonauts Free with GOG.com Summer Sale

I liked the new XCom, but I wasn't a fan of the progression and research. It felt like some technologies were flat out better in every way and there was no reason to use older ones or to even research some of them. The first XCom was more about using the technologies you liked and to customize everything. The progression also felt linear instead of you customizing things. How does Xenonauts compare?

cheat protection is going to have to be stepped up otherwise most of these improvements will just make the game even more frustrating.

shooting people through walls for example is just screaming for people to abuse that ability.

I wonder if they're planing on scaling back the player count on servers, adding so much more physics to the game is bound to have a negative effect.

R6 Siege has shooting through walls and it's fine. I love it myself.

Although, I'm a little hesitant over their concept of completely removing random deviation for bullets... surely that can't mean that guns will be laser accurate? (With of course recoil, bullet drop and travel time, but still). Are they planning on having recoil make the cross-hairs jump around, but the bullets will still be 100% accurate to that moving cross-hair?

I was also thinking about that. It's a nice idea to have the gun fire where it is pointed, but at the same time that means the first shot is always on perfectly on target if you have the time to aim. My guess is maybe your crosshair/barrel is not still but always moving slightly to simulate breathing/involuntary hand movements. Inaccurate guns may move more, or perhaps zoom in much less in ADS. We'll have to wait and see I guess, but I think it is cool that they experiment a bit and not just copy-paste from earlier iterations.

It's possible that when you shoot, there's recoil and your crosshair/view moves with it, but the shots will always go exactly at the crosshair. It would still be pretty innacurate to go full auto.

All these changes sound great. Not sure about the aiming thing, but I'm sure it'll be fine. These guys know what they're doing.

I haaaate the look of this megaman. The gameplay itself looks fine, but it looks so bad that I'm not sure I can play it.

Please don't be Fallout Online...

My #1 wish is that they take Fallout 4 and add multiplayer to it. But, I don't want a new Fallout game to have multiplayer from the start, it'll corrupt it.

I'm waiting for stable release, but I'll give it a try. It's definitely not for all games, but for slower games like Into The Breach or Talos Principle or Hob, I think this might not be so bad to use given you have a tablet (or a phone) and wish to stream to it. I don't really use the feature as is, though, and we have a macbook and an Zenbook in our apartment. So streaming to my other devices isn't something I do anyway.

Still good features though.

I'm not a fighting game expert, but I tried Mortal Kombat X which is a "fast" action game and the lag didn't affect the game much. It was perfectly playable. I think the real issue is that it's pretty cumbersome to stream on my phone with no stand and carry a gamepad. It could make sense for touchscreen/mouse-only games.

Fan expectations too high? I love Borderlands, but from what I've seen of the two sequels, it's Gearbox who aims too low. Tons of issues and annoyances that could have been easily solved in the sequels were ignored and instead we got essentially the same game thrice.
edit: and I know Gearbox didn't directly do the pre-sequel, but the blood is still on their hands.

Why pay for servers when there's not enough sales to sustain it now that all the people who were gonna buy micros bought them? Might as well get some good PR from it too.

Played the games back in the day. They weren't my cup of tea. One Must Fall 2097 was a much better game with Jazz in it. Also, why the hell aren't there more Fighting games with RPG elements like OMF 2097?? That's the way to bring them to the mainstream.
Wait, Jazz was in OMF 2097? How on earth did I miss that?

And RPG elements in fighting games have given way to unique classes. Which makes it clearer to the opponent what the abilities are of a fighter.

Jazz is there, his girlfriend and the turtle are too. Link. There was a pretty deep unranked challenger mechanic in the game and you could get several skill updrages that would make your robot pull off absolutely insane things.

I want to select a fighter and upgrade him the way I want to and get money and go through some kind of open story/world. All that, but still a serious fighting game. A lot of games have tried some things, but they were either a completely new genre, or it was some kind of simple side thing with no real effort put in.

When we get amazing internet connections(in 30 years?), these kinds of services will become the only option, but for now, with the shitty connections we have, these streaming services are almost useless. I especially don't see why this one thinks it'll be successful.

I also don't get what Valve has to gain from this. Firewatch was a pretty good walking simulator. Not the best, but it had more gameplay than most. I can't wait for their next game though, it looks like such a rich idea.

What would you consider the pinnacle of the genre? Edith Finch?

I actually didn't play Edith Finch or Tacoma yet. My favorite so far was Gone Home.
