I guess I'd pledge even though I'd rather have something like Alpha Protocol or New Vegas, Obsidian needs help.

Count me in among the pass on Pillars 2 crowd.

 

Same here, would love something more modern though.

Solution is easy enough anyway, just use the Rod of Asclepius/ Caduceus instead.

I'm mostly interested in how does all of this apply to uses in real situations portrayed in fiction - so red crosses are on medical tents in Battlefield 1. That'd be an accurate historical portrayal, right? And how about ambulances in games, like Prison Architect? Does Red Cross belong on an ambulance?

 

 

As others have said it's probably not enforceable in the sense that they'd have a slam dunk win in court, it justs costs money to defend against and would potentially be very bad PR ('violent game maker drags honourable humanitarians through court!!!') as well. On the two examples given I'd say they'd have no chance vs BF1 since it is an accurate historical depiction, but they might have a case against PA since the Red Cross is licensed for use on ambulances via countries' services, ie there's a US Red Cross organisation, a New Zealand Red Cross, an Egyptian Red Crescent etc so they could claim that licensing would be required for non historical usage. PA may also have some issues specifically because the RC tends to have problems with executions.

I sort of did. They have made KOTOR 2, NWN2+ Expansions, FN:V and AP. Some of my favorite rpgs. Then they had people that worked on other games that I really like. An isometric rpg from these guys was a dream for me. Then, there was the possibility of adding your own NPC, but we know how that went.

 

I'm still a sucker and will probably give them $100.

I didn't give that much but don't regret it at all :) I didn't even really like crpgs and really it was the quality of fonv that I pledged at all.

Damn, even the first mission got HEAVILY converted.

Different objectives, 8 soldiers to control, and like 11 aliens when I played it.

I was basically in XCOM heaven.

This sounds very interesting: http://www.eurogamer...nd-jade-raymond

 

Haven't played a good Star Wars game for quite a while.

 

EDIT:

 

The new trailer for Call of Cthulhu looks terrifyingly awesome btw:

I gave it a try to go for an early "get data" mission which had only 22h window. I packed 10 soldiers for max guard level enemies.... the pods had 7- enemies each, had to kill around 35 enemies had 9 turns timer to get to the data vault... i failed by one tile, lost 2 soldiers in a heroic attempt, but then killed all the advent. I feel like flashbangs are much better now than regular nades early on, because you rarely get to destroy cover with regular nades, but still gettng a nade toessed on ambush into 9 enemies and getting some luck let me get 4 kills out of one nade...

 

I'm LOVING IT. just need to learn to skip some missions early on i guess.

Hm, and White Wolf have announced that there's a Werewolf The Apocalpyse computer game coming. There's a base website that is purely the front cover and no details beyond it being for pc and console.

It's being made by Cyanide (published by Focus Home Interactive). Great news IMO.

Why do they still call it "Project Louisiana"?. With the reference to the leaden key, it can only be POE2.

My ****ery sense is telling me that they are ****ing with us and it will be something completely unrelated to both POE or Fallout.
