I had plenty of fun playing Dark Omen or Shadow of the Horned Rat. It's thanks to this game I was interested in Total War series. I just hope this game won't be such a bad release as Rome 2.

Last year I was hyped for two games. Isaac and Dark Souls 2. Only Isaac lived up to the hype.

Few days ago I tried KF2 and I haven't found any players to play. I doubt it was too late, but I hope players won't die out before launch.

Yes it's been empty this week but I assume that's because others, like a lot of my steam friends, had already updated to the beta before its initial release today. Beta servers have been going for a week or so.

But what really changes? Cube is the biggest improvement. Torment VII-X is lazy as shit, because Blizzard as always will make "time two" and that's all. One or two new maps? I prefer PoE seasons, when they always tries something new.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Kickstarter launches, details multiplayer features & new systemsDivinity: Original Sin 2 Kickstarter launches, details multiplayer features & new systems

Don't get me wrong. I love Divinity. They made something very VERY impressive with first part. It was glorious!


But it sold better than well. They have money. Lots of it. I'm sure they could afford 500.000$. Yes, I understand that it is better to invest someone else money that your own, but still.


I'm quite sure Larian will make great job, but putting their next game on Kickstarter, they are "taking" money from developers who really needs money to finish their games. We may be missing another FTL that way.

I'm not sure it works like that. People pledge money to support the projects they are excited about. If I don't give money to this game, it doesn't mean I would give them to another. I might as well go out for a beer.


There is probably an overlap between the groups of possible backers, where indeed a larger developer is taking money from a smaller one, but if their game raises more interest ... then that's OK really.


FTL :'(

How Magic Duels: Origins is adapting to the evolution of the digital CCGHow Magic Duels: Origins is adapting to the evolution of the digital CCG

Game play is really annoying because you cannot press a button to end your turn, you have to wait in 2-3 second batches at every phase even if you are 100% sure you won't do anything that turn.

In MTGO terms: there is no F6 button.

You also cannot chose which lands to tap, the AI choses for you and seems to consider what's left in your hand, but I haven;t been able to test it with in complex situations where keeping a certain land untapped might be crucial.

It has copied a lot from Hearthstone, but unfortunatelty not the smooth gameplay Hearthstone provides. Still it seems a step in the right direction and certainly a lot better than the abysmal technical state of MTGO (But that, being real magic, is a better game than Duels)

WotC migth get it right around the year 2020, fingers crossed.

Why not Hex TCG to occupy your time until then? ;)

First game was a great success, and still kickstarter for another one? Why most successful kickstarter projects still looks for money on kickstarter. I'm sure they sold enough copies to fund next game by themselves.Reply

Why not? As long as they use that money to make the game better .. why not?

But paper version of Magic is also a F2P. Just as digital. You get a starter for free (as mentioned in article), and you can play with it (for free), or buy new cards, boosters etc. Well it's not even a F2P but Pay2Win, and if it's fine with people that play paper Magic it should be OK with people playing digital version.


ps. I just hope that digital cards/boosters would be cheaper that paper...

but that was the entire point of getting the digital game for me, you buy a game your done, you don't get nickel and dimed for the entire time you play the game.

.

so really without a fairly valid and reasonable way to play for free, without being totally screwed over they have chance to lose a lot of the people who play.

Ubisoft has a lot of games that interests me, but I can't force me on uplay.

Jealous about what? His novels are imo far better than everything CDPR has written so far (if you compare the storytelling). Of course it's another medium but that only makes your statement even less convincing...
