I'm glad he sent Trump money, the poor lad has hardly any of his own.

This is the first time I've taken the plunge with humble bundle's monthly. Even if all the rest are either shit or I already own them, just 12 dollars for Xcom 2 is a very good deal. I just finished Xcom 1 less than 2 weeks ago, so this bundle came at a very good time for me.

I've been doing it since it started and some months are mostly golden, some aren't. It's introduced me to games I've loved that I wouldn't have looked at twice in the steam store.

Torment devs apologise for cutting stretch goals, future content to be "free to all backers"Torment devs apologise for cutting stretch goals, future content to be "free to all backers"
KeefBaker Avatar

I did too, but you know what? I'd rather they concentrated on making a good game than some daft stretch goals that were clearly only at the ideas stage. Sometimes ideas sound good on paper and are actually crap in practice.

I agree that some ideas may just not fit, but there is a fairly clear difference between game mechanics (e.g. deeper crafting systems) and content (characters and locations).

It is down to the developer to decide first of all if they want to make stretch goals (there are no requirements for the goals to exist) and secondly what they want to set the goals towards. This here is an example of a developer over-promising, spending too long prototyping, then finding they didn't have enough funds to meet all they promised. It is a shame that inXile are palming off the blame with a generic "we were too busy fixing things" statement, as they still were communicating with both backers and media on progression of the games development. They chose to keep silent about the cuts, and hoped the backers would forget about them.

Are triple-A games really failing?Are triple-A games really failing?

People have made some great points but I'd also like to add the very high profile failure of no man's sky to this. No Man's Sky taught even the most gullible person that the hype machine is full of crap and to wait for reviews before parting with your cash. I absolutely would have preordered dishonored-2 but after nms and Batman I wasn't going to risk it. I ended up picking it up in the Christmas sale and it's everything I hoped it would be.

As long as valve can survive it. I've no interest in losing my 1300 strong steam library because of punitive costs causing them to go out of business.Reply

Thats like probably small change for Valve at this point i doubt it would dent their wallet.

Bethesda lost their free pass with Fallout 4. They were the only developer I'd comfortably preorder games from, even the season passes. But in this case they really buggered up the base game and out of all the DLC, I'm only interested in Nuka World and Far Harbour.

I think of the DLC that came out for Fallout 3 and just weep.Reply
Lolssi Avatar

I thought F3 had pretty awful DLCs. Anchorage and Zeta totally crappy. Pittsburgh was kinda meh. Swamp was better and the one that raised level cap was good.

Not that I have ever seen many good dlcs.

Yay for a singleplayer focussed game as far as I'm concerned.

In every strictly single-player game I've played, I've thought: "Y'know what? This would be better if I could play with a friend."


I hate tacked-on multiplayer as much as anyone, but the option of doing a story campaign co-op is always a plus for me. I don't even care if one person is the "main character."

Tales of Maj'Eyal review snippet How does Tales of Maj'Eyal reward you for playing tactically?
As with most roguelikes you suffer permadeath and there's a lot of very well designed levelling and loot to be got. And the design is such that if you don't play tactically you WILL die.

Grey Goo review snippet How do the mechs in Grey Goo feel?
As good as the massive teddy bears. I liked the bit where the african american cop comes out, says, "I'm too old for this shit", and then shows a picture of the boat he's retiring to. It's a strategy game, you don't pilot mechs, unless you count "select and right click to move" as piloting.

You could write the story on the back of a cigarette packet and still have room for the health warnings and a realistic picture of a goat.
