It looks interesting. Thanks for infor. But TBH, I´m getting sick of these episode-style releases.

Give us a complete game already, dammit! (forgets that this isn't how the game industry works any more, on any level - patch, patch and more patch...)

:(

Yeah...exactly. I know this is a way for third party or Indie developers to find out, if the game is attractive, but damn.....

You guys can complain, but the truth of it is; if it didn't sell, they wouldn't do it. Developers follow trends of success, not failing trends or things of convenience. Actually, developers tend to do a lot of extra crap that destroys their quality of life, because they're trying to keep up with the demands of gamers.

Also, episodic has allowed some things to flourish that otherwise would've never seen the light of day.

Now, patches are bullshit. I told people that shitty PC-gaming practices would creep in, the second they started allowing patches to "finished" products and sure enough, here we are, where games are released broken, with "Day One Patches" or constant tinkering (not improving, just tinkering). That part of modern gaming can bite-chunk!

Well...the same what developers do, we do in our jobs as well....and usually it´s not voluntary on our side. They do it for money as we do. For me, I see episodic releases just for them to have some quick income,...maybe to be able to develop the game into it´s final state. And of course, they need some food for their families. :-D

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (6 Hours ago)
