System Shock remaster will have "modern level design principles" and other changesSystem Shock remaster will have "modern level design principles" and other changes

Swapping engines won't necessarily improve performance. There are Unreal engine games with terrible performance, and Unity games with great performance.


Hopefully it does, but it's not a given.

It'll more than likely improve things tbh. Unreal is a much better engine for bigger games. Unity is a great little engine for mobile, small indie or strategy games, but as soon as it's pressured into needing to perform in terms of stable fps in first/third person shooter type games, it clogs up.


Of course optimization helps, but we've seen it time and time again. Unreal engine is much better overall for these types of things.

I'm VERY glad they decided to switch to the Unreal engine, because the Unity demo was crappy in terms of FPS. I would have thrown money at it if it wasn't for how poorly it performed on my rig (which very well should, and is, be capable of running such a game and much more).Reply

The prices for the other DLC is rather shameful. The Chaos warrior DLC is VEEEEEERY bare bones for example, and it all just comes off as very greedy to hide such iconic and core factions behind a DLC package that you have to pay extra for. They're integral to the world and lore. It's completely silly how much of the DLC that appears entirely rushed. I hope they put out some patches that addresses these things, because it's in no way worth shelling out what is more than what the game actually costs on its own just to get the full game experience.

FTL devs return with Into the Breach, turn-based kaiju defence with giant robotsFTL devs return with Into the Breach, turn-based kaiju defence with giant robots
Anakhoresis Avatar

I was going to say I wish they had ported FTL to Android, but then I realized it would probably be an utter pain to try and get move the little guys around on my phone screen...


Into the Breach (Pacific Rim?) doesn't look so far to have micromanagement like that but the website only says Steam.

MrJinxed Avatar

Yeah I can't imagine playing on a phone, but FTL works beautifully on tablets.

That should be interesting. I hope it also gets ported to mobile. FTL just went on sale for iOS for the first time in 2 years and the biggest discount yet, so hopefully this means they haven't totally forgotten about the platform, and might launch for it at a later dateReply

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.Reply

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.

I deal with this by

1. savescumming

2. play all tacticool

3. always expect the worst

buy xcom 2 for $12 it's really worth it, the dlc is worthless, probably

MrJinxed Avatar

Get xcom 2, play it for the tutorial it is. Install Long War 2, and sit back for the 200 hour ride it takes you on.

You're getting a game for free and you complain that they should have a wider selection?

Take what you're given and stop complaining that you're 'stuck with the game'...

MrJinxed Avatar

I don't know if that's entirely fair to say. They are marketing these things to consumers to try to lure them to buy their GPU over the competitors, so you're not just getting a game or two for free with your purchase, it's very much part of the package, so "take what you're given" is not entirely accurate.


Some people have been selling off the game for a few extra dollars to recoup from the pricey GPU purchase. I don't think that's entirely out of line. Maybe it is, I don't know, but I don't mind people doing that.


I have no idea what kind of selection they offer these days either, as it has been a few years since I bought my GPU.

This is great. I don't care for him or the channels like his, but this will give the smaller channels a chance to grow. There are many really great content creators out there, and this might be the perfect chance for people to go look for other things.

In reality they'll just migrate to 1-3 other channels, and they'll probably grow by a large margin, but one can hope.Reply

He's just deleting his channel. He said he isn't done with YouTube. This is probably all a marketing sham and knew exactly what he was doing before announcing this.

Non-accredited Fig investors can now purchase equity in games on the crowd-funding platformNon-accredited Fig investors can now purchase equity in games on the crowd-funding platform

Can we please get some proper reporting on the scam that is fig, instead of just posting whatever press release they feed the media?

Maybe one day.Reply
Burningpet Avatar

I did the math. Wasteland 3 will have to sell 2.5 million copies before the investors could start seeing return on their investment. Wasteland 2 sold 600K units, i believe a 1/3 of which under 50% discount.


This is an utterly bad investment.
