Project Snowblind Patch Status

The Eidos Forums (thanks Hump) have an update on the status of a patch for the PC edition of Project Snowblind:
Great news, people! I've been asked to pass the word that there will be a patch for Project: Snowblind PC. The dev team are going to be working on it diligently throughout the month of May. I cannot give you an exact date when it will be released to you, or what specific issues will be addressed yet, but I can tell you that everything you have pointed out to us has been read and considered, and we will do our best to make the game as enjoyable as possible.

ok, so i recently beat the game, and i am totally pissed off, was it supposed to be hard, cuz i believe i saw a similar "boss/ending" in half life 2...which in every sence of the term is amazingly better than this game.where was the final boss, i faced 8 guys that were down in a single shot gun blast. i used the "augmentation" feature maybe 2 times in the whole game just because i didnt feel like killing everyone in the room. so i skipped over people. is that so bad? and why is it when the enimy was invisible, you could still see them? and the map, what the hell? guess what...there are enimies sneaking up on you from every side. "shield, shotgun, emp, kill everyone." and they arent even good shots. any why can you not change the difficulty setting on the game, i beat the singlye player in a week. atleast H-L2 took about 3 months. why was there no kick ass final boss? seriously? will the patch fix that too? i hope. maybe even add a whole second half of the game, have me kill something huge!!!!! if you were going for a good shhoter, your about half way there, if your were going for dues ex, your about 10 percent there. like seriously what the hell. why is there so much praise about multiplayer yet no one plays? i am always checking for games and what not, but no one plays them. and as for the patch, my game runs fine without it, except for the above mentiond items that need to be fixed. if your mad at me e-mail me here, i would love to hear back on what other people thought as well.

Uninstalling the game and returning your rental (you didn't buy it, did you?!) = makes the game as enjoyable as possible.

I am too lazy to hunt down more respectable URLs, but this was Deus Ex: Clan Wars:

Maybe you didn't know this but Project: Snowblind started out as an expansion pack (and/or sequel) to Deus Ex and was going to be called Clan Wars.

Hmm. Gamerankings has the game averaging out at 78%. Quite a good score. I wonder if this is another case of the "Bluesnews Grumps"!

It was definitely supposed to be a different game. DX inspired, but not DX gameplay.


However, they still took some elements of DX. Not enough. As mentioned, it feels like a half-assed DX. This is why they're being compared, not because it was supposed to be in the same universe, but because the gameplay of Snowblind is like DX:IW lite, which was DX lite in the first place.

That would be impossible, not to mention bad business sense.

I think that's probably bollocks. The working name was apparently DX: Clan Wars, but it developed into Snowblind a while back. You're suggesting they completely ditched their existing story and setting (and therefore all the models, weapons, assets, whatever) and made completely new stuff in the one year after DX:IW was released? For all three release platforms? That would be impossible, not to mention bad business sense.

Snowblind was originally supposed to be a follow-up to DX:IW, I believe...

No, Snowblind was always intended as an action spinoff. Perhaps they were planning to set it in the DX universe, but that changed a while back. As far as gameplay goes, Snowblind was always intended to be different. That's the biggest misconception about this game. People have played it expecting Deus Ex 3, but Snowblind was never supposed to be that.

I can't think of anything that they could do to make that stinker enjoyable.

Its actually the multiplayer people are pissed about not being able to play. Despite the mediocre SP, MP is quite fun.

Eidos's treatment of the PC version of this game is a definitive look at just why PC game sales are tanking. Nothing to do with piracy and everything to do with poor management resulting in a buggy, poorly supported release. I just wish I could do more than post on a few forums to embarrass these empty suits into supporting their products.

Funny, I don't remember an affiliation between Deus Ex and Snowlind...

Given the main split was quite awhile ago, and they're two totally different games..

They should have gone back and played Deus Ex and remembered what a good game was like.

I can't think of anything that they could do to make that stinker enjoyable. Unless they want to add a decent story and some real strategy to the levels (not just "hmm... do I want to go airvent this time, or should I just overload the security panel?"). After making that decision half a dozen times per level, it's OLD, get it? They should have gone back and played Deus Ex and remembered what a good game was like.
