Well at least this is less likely to be brought down by the cost of anti-phallus technology

So, no DILDO Worlds? What a pity.

News Comments > Panzer Corps 2 Announced
1. Re: Panzer Corps 2 Announced Mar 8, 2017, 09:53 El Pit
 
I have played quite a few TBS games (from Panzer General to Battle Isle and X-COM), but Panzer Corps is too hardcore for me. It plays like classic Panzer General, but you won't earn much (or, in my opinion, enough) experience to build up your forces. I understand Slitherine did not want players to steamroll the opponent with 5 star forces after a few missions, but they nerfed it too much imo. I played the tutorial and loved it! Played the first level (Poland), and still loved it. Then came Norway (level 2)... And the difficulty curve rocketed to Mars and beyond. I resupplied troops, bought a few trucks for my infantery (you will see why once you reach the Norway level) and a strategic bomber... and that was it. The level was HARD at standard difficulty ("Colonel"), very hard.

I understand some people like those very hard games, but when I come home from work, I just don't need too much stress anymore, so... I downloaded Panzer General 2 from GOG and was happy again.

Panzer Corps is a good game and a true sequel to the Panzer General games except for its difficulty. Colonel/standard difficulty is too demanding imo. Did not bother trying it at easy, so I don't know what the game is like at easy.

I'll just leave this here

If Quake was done today

Lacks third person perspective and huge pointers indicating where the enemies are. Also: mini map with red blips showing where the enemy has hidden. Add regenerating health, too.

We decided it was best to stop the crunch and focus on finishing the infrastructure and editor work before reviewing our quality level and reassessing the target date for the Backer Beta.

Yes. Working your people half to death should NEVER be the answer.

Working your people half to death is the RELIGION nowadays. A peon dies - just replace it, keep the pace, PROFIT!!!

Best of luck to Harebrained, the Battletech videos looked amazing!

Jordan and Mitch are stand-up guys, I'd believe them even if they didn't give their explanation. And after reading it, I still believe them. Infrastructure upgrades can and often do suck for development (my day job is supporting software infrastructure), it doesn't surprise me they lost a few weeks in the process.

Now if HBS went full radio silence then I'd start to worry. But that would be the case for any company and not just HBS.

I hope that they can pull through. Battletech looked amazing up to now. Best of luck to the Harebrained guys!

Sad news from Harebrained Games: the Battletech beta has beeen pushed back for several reasons. Also, the release date of the final version (not the beta, as I had written before, sorry) has been changed from summer 2017 to summer/late fall, but the mail from Harebrained reads like this date could also easily change.

Sad day... I hope I can trust the reasons they quoted in their mail. I hope that Harebrained is honest. It just feels... somehow fishy. Hope they did not run out of money before release. Got my fingers crossed here, Battletech looked great in the preview videos.

Wait, your movement speed usually halves in EVERY FPS game when you ADS, what the hell are you guys on about? I don't know of any FPS game where you can run at full speed while ADSing, by nature it slows movement, and sometimes the mouse sensitivity (although can often be adjusted in settings)

You sort of tried to sell ADS as an alternative FPS mode, which it is not.

But as I said before, no problem. It will sell millions, but it is a game I would like to play in first person perspective, which is unfortunately not possible. I think they can afford me not buying the game. It is a shame though. UBI can pull it off in Farcry games, but somehow not in Wildlands.

Wow, just when I think it can't get worse. Trump randomly accuses Obama bugging Trump Tower? I can't figure out if he is crazy, a genius, or just has ADD -- probably parts of all three.

He thinks that if he bangs his drum loud enough, people will forget about Pence.

Sad fact: he is right...

NOAA is Trump's next victim. He accuses them of making bad weather in parts of the US, while the sun always shines in Mexico. He thinks this is un-american and lacks patriotism, so he will reduce NOAA's funds.

Instead, he will threaten the climate with new nukes. This should show the weather who the boss really is!

Yes, you can.

Thanks, but it looks awkward and he seems to walk as soon as you change to ADS, so it is not really an FPS mode, unfortunately.

Whatever. They will sell millions, they don't need my money. And I got plenty of other games (like FarCry: Primal) on my backlog.

You know when you ADS by default it goes to 1st person right? Seems the best of both worlds to me, the positional precision and situational awareness of 3rd person, and the gunplay of 1st person.

I don't think I'm going to buy this game for other reasons, but the POV I'm a fan of.

Can you move in ADS? Also: did you watch some videos dealing with fighting inside building in 3rd person in Wildlands? Go and do so. It does not work.

FPS for Wildlands or it is no game for me.

So, Donnie, will Pence go to prison for it? No, of course, not, it is alright, and anybody criticizing Pence is on a witch hunt, right? So - Pence is a witch?

Oh, Donnie, just give up. Go back to The Apprentice and try to look smart again.

Dear UBI, here is what I would have loved to read:

On the visual front, the PC version of Ghost Recon Wildlands supports not just third person perspective, but also first person perspective.

THIS would have sold the game to me. But sticking to third person perspective makes me spend my money elsewhere. It's a shame, because it does look interesting.

Verno wrote on Mar 3, 2017, 08:44:
The gaming performance issues I'm seeing across all reviews are frankly disappointing. It seems like they're still not close enough on IPC. I have an Intel platform already and this isn't enough to make me upgrade, I guess I'll see how optimization comes along over the next few years.

That is how I understood most reviews, too. Ryzen is alright for gaming, but not in the same class with intel cpus. When it comes to content streaming and production, Ryzen is the cpu to buy.

This means that my i5 3570k will have to do for another year. Let us see what 2018 (Zen2 and REALLY new intel cpus) will bring. I am in no hurry.
