Looks exactly like Super meat boy. I find it hard to find anything to differentiate it. I didn't really like meat boy. Loved Isaac though.

I played it for a while a few months back. It was fun for a couple dozen hours but then it just gets SUPER grindy to make any progress without spending money. And I found the AI to be annoying. You spend all this time laying out traps and the AI will just go around it or break a hole in the wall and avoid everything you laid out. Smart for the AI? Yeah. Fun for the player? Not so much.

I don't like laying traps or tower defense, will I like this game?

The trailer was pretty hard to watch, but a coop survival game from a more experienced studio is something I should keep an eye on.

I like the gameplay of games like Stardew I just can't stand the graphics. I hate that cutesy style crap. I'd love to see a game like this with a bit more realism graphically. Something like Fallout or NWN with being able to do all this sort of crafting.

I personally like it, but I get what you're saying. They did do some 3D Harvest Moon games and in my opinion, unfortunately, it changed the gameplay for the worse. It's like 2.5D platformers vs 2D ones. the 2.5D ones never feel as good, or at least, they feel like different games. From my elder scrolls modding experience, I think that what you want would be a pretty easy mod to do. I've had this idea a long time ago and I'm surprised there's nothing yet.

Here's the review - from a month ago - that really dissuaded me...

I guess that if you were a kickstarter backer, you might be annoyed. But the way I see it, I paid very little for a game that I loved. I then got several massive updates that warranted new playthroughs, at no extra cost. The next update comes out soon and I'm going to play it during a small lan party. This is the best game there is for coop lans and lans are essentially one the funnest things one can do in this world... Can't complain. I see it from a different perspective: the full game was released years ago. They've also released huge free DLCs. I don't give a damn if they call it alpha, beta or whateva... But you decide.

I'm not defending their price jump, but I can probably guess why the price increased and the timing.

They very well could lose their retail shelf space if the digital version is selling below the retail price (and it's not a temporary sale), hence the price jump.

As for the timing, Steam has a policy that you can't put your game on sale within 30 days of a price jump. I'm guessing they want to do a launch discount and their launch is just a little over a month away.

If they didn't announce the price jump, it could be because they didn't want people who were waiting for the exit of early access to buy the game at the reduced price.

The canuck only focuses on the negative.

Why do you have to point out he's a canuck? Let's not drag the rest of the Canadians down in the gutter with him. It doesn't matter what country he's from.. you'd call him that even if he was from Madeuppistan.


I'm a "canuck" too :p

7 days to die is still the gold standard for these games if you ask me. Is it worth 60$? I'd say sure, but I wouldn't pay that.

I considered grabbing that during the sale but all the recent reviews say the opposite of that. Apparently the game hasn't been updated in a year and the devs are, apparently, major fucking douchebags who have been censoring and banning people criticizing them for the lack of updates and criticisms of them. The game was supposed to be finished 3 years ago. From the sounds of it it's just another EA game that is slowly grinding to a halt as the devs get bored of it and are taking the money and running.


Are you talking about 7 days? I don't know what you're talking about... I'm not invested in the community, but I've been playing this for years and they release major updates to the game at regular intervals. There's so much new stuff that it warrants a new full playthrough with every major update. They're about to release the next one in the next week(s). Could they work faster? Maybe, but this is clearly a living game that will evolve during its entire lifetime. I've gotten 104 hours out of it so far and I loved every minute of it. Got a lot of enjoyment for my money. Honestly, I can't even imagine it being much better than it is. It has a fully dynamic world built with blocks similar to Minecraft, but it has better graphics and physics. Somehow, they got this to work so well that you can have huge cities with fully detailed skyscrapers and almost no impact on performance. It's not perfect, but I seriously don't understand how someone could complain about this game.

Played during the free weekend a while back, and found it way too grindy. Needs to dial back (not eliminate) some of the survival mechanics so more time can be focused on the fun parts of the game.

Since they have personal servers, that part is but a few clicks away.

I did a personal server and dialed everything to minimum and it still felt unfair and didn't improve the game.

I've played this recently for like 28 hours. It's your classic multiplayer crafting survival game. There's no terrain deformation. The difference here is that there's a whole dinosaur taming and riding mechanic. I personally have zero interest in the dinosaur stuff. I don't want to deal with this. If you ignore that, it's still a pretty good game of that type. It has strong pve and it's fun in coop. Didn't do any pvp because I have zero interest in griefing. It's not perfectly optimized, but it's running well for me and my brother. Can't complain about that. The game is on the frustrating side of things though. It's not well balanced and you don't feel like deaths are your fault. It just feels like the game randomly decides that you have to die for no reason. Other negatives are that the interface is bad and the game is waaaay too grindy. Ultimately, I'd rate it a 6.5/10. My ratings are lower than the average because I don't rate every game a 9. If I was to adjust it to a game publication rating, it would be an 8. If you actually enjoy babysitting dinosaurs and riding them, then you can raise that by half a point.

7 days to die is still the gold standard for these games if you ask me. Is it worth 60$? I'd say sure, but I wouldn't pay that.

Great concept, too bad it didn't have graphics to match.

Graphics are fine. It doesn't seem to have gameplay to match.

No, they're not. I want to see some crazy shit in 3D with the UE4 engine. Not some 2D low-rent hand drawn bullshit.

Gotta agree here.

I too would like this game to be an amazing game that I imagined, made by a passionate AAA team with a big budget, but all this doesn't exist. This does though.

Bioware has been dead for a while. They used to make new, interesting content, but as part of EA they are expected to make sequels. If a sequel fails to perform, it is killed. EA destroys gaming companies and creativity. I expect we will get a 'reboot' of ME in multiplayer only sometime later on, after EA feels people have forgotten about Andromeda.
You're absolutely right, except the next mass effect will be a linear call of duty-like 3rd person shooter.

Can't be a coincidence, first Dishonored 2 and then prey, under bethesda's thumb. Surely this is exactly why Human Head didn't kneel at the bethesda altar.

Not sure what you mean? Dishonored 2 and Prey are both great games. Before Zenimax bought them, Arkane made Arx Fatalis and Dark Messiah of Might & Magic. Their games under Bethesda have sold significantly more, had much better critical reception and have made the studio a much more established name.

I like Arx and Dark Messiah way more than Dishonored. I didn't play Prey, but from what I saw, I'm not even interested in it. Sure, the new games are selling more, but I'd rather have the old studio back. To me it seems like their new games lack any kind of passion. Like they're just churning AAA games for the money instead of love. They don't evoke much excitement in me, partly because of that.

Hell, the two stash tabs are almost worth $15. A premium stash tab over on Path of Exile is $4 and I've bought at least 20 of them. So $7.5 is a bit high, but in the acceptable range.

Different opinion: I would pay 5 bucks top for this.

I'm not a lawyer. Do we get our mods back or not?
Yes. As long as they can't be used for MP, you don't make money from them, and they don't steal assets/characters from other games (including other Rockstar games).

As far as I can tell OpenIV is still closed down because of the cease and desist they received. So, still bad.

Did they unban the single-player-only mod that they banned? The only reason there's backlash.

I've worked on implementing recoil in a PC game myself. If you want your shooting to feel weighty, reactive and fun, you need recoil. This includes moving the mouse. This guy doesn't sound to me like he knows what he's doing. A ton of great shooters have recoil. Has he never played a PC game?

I finished the article and the game (just last weekend). I don't think the description of rpg was so cringe-worthy.

His definition means that Doom would be a RPG. He's acting like he knows what he's talking about, giving us the official definition of RPG, but it's so dumb... Also, he says that Horizon is a RPG... If you agree with that, I can't discuss this with you further...
