It's not like you really have a choice. Windows 7 is EOL in less than a year and a half and at that point, it won't even be a supported platform for new software anymore. I mean, some stuff will…

Refusing to play a game cause it's on Origin or Uplay or Bethesda.net, instead of Steam, is the modern day equivalent of refusing to play a game because it's only carried at Babbage's and not at…

If they're aware of it, and doing things this way anyway, probably means they don't see it as a problem, or have decided it could even…

At this point, you know if they had to choose, then they'd choose full-blown action. I'd take the current (DA:I) style over that in an instant.

It really just makes no sense to release a game of this sort in such a piecemeal fashion. They did the same thing with PoE1, dividing White March into two pieces. I remember them saying it was a…

Well, the games most similar to PoE, in terms of gameplay/budget/target audience, are probably D:OS1/D:OS2 (Larian) and W2/T:ToN (inXile). None of those games had any DLCs or expansions. 3 of them…

I don't entirely disagree, and I paid a whole lot for PoE2 physical collectors edition + "season pass", even though I won't be playing the game until next year. So I've got that covered personally,…

No, the "complaining" (if you can call it that) was by Silver Coin, saying that we're hurting sales and/or support by not being willing to buy the game at release and buy all DLC as they're released….

Yep, only way to get me to play the game at (or soon after) release is to ensure that all addons only add on to the end of the game, like it used to be in the Good Old Days™. And I don't typically…

Roguelike term is pointless now anyway, has become almost completely meaningless. This Legerdemain game does look like what I'd call a "legit" roguelike, but as someone who spent metric fucktons of…

Yep you're right, Wasteland 2 took forever. Although not as long as PoE2 will take now.

And don't forget Jagged Alliance: Flashback, where they never sent out the physical rewards period :lol:…

Nope, PoE1 physical copies (Kickstarter ones at least) shipped before the game was even released and some people actually received theirs before it unlocked on Steam.

Yeah, this aspect is completely ridiculous at this point and there hasn't been much forthcoming from Obsidian about it. The update from June 21 said they were shipping in a "couple weeks" (didn't…

If you'd read the FCC's docs on these waivers (which I did earlier before posting anything), you'd know they weren't fighting anyone, all sides involved were fine with granting those waivers.

Laughable. Saying that you'd need text-to-speech for a chat line in a shooter game is like saying you need braille numbers on the stick-shift knob in your car. Makes zero sense, and I suspect this…

Sounds pretty painful. Anything bigger than 27" or so is too big for gaming IMO, forces too much eye movement to take in entire scenes. Though that does assume normal viewing distance (sitting at a…

If you closed the video once the shooting started, then you missed the most banal parts of all. Combat in this game seems to consist of rapidly spraying bullets for long periods of time into bullet…

People are using their own custom definition of publisher, which is "publisher who also finances the game" (aka typical AAA arrangement). I guess you're expected to know this. I ran into the same…

Actually, Neverwinter, the free-to-play MMO from 2013, is supposed to be 4th edition. I haven't played it as I refuse to sink that low, but I assume in reality it's about as 4th edition as SCL is…

D:OS2 combat was definitely a downgrade, but was still fun IMO. D:OS1 had some of the most fun combat in the history of RPG'ish gaming, so I'm not sure why they felt the need to make such large…

I'd have to guess St. Petersburg salaries are a ton lower than Maryland salaries, but no idea about Larian's other 3 locations (Quebec, Ghent, Dublin). I wouldn't imagine they're vastly different?

You could just as easily argue that the two human males in this game are non-politically-correct, because it's hugely stereotypical that the black guy (ranger) looks like a big brute, and the white…
