Ah, looks like Supergiant has gone the way of quirky audio. Too bad.

Releases tomorrow. :dancing:

Pre-purchased and ready to play. 12 more hours :D

I'm just glad this one isn't turn -based. The audio is fine. The game is a huge improvement over Transistor.

(Coming from someone who loves Transitor and turn-based combat).

Yakuza Kiwami new trailer

...


Played this in Japanese already. Honestly, everything that it does, Yakuza Zero does better. There's no reason to buy both unless you're a major fan of the series.

I have nothing against RTS I'm just complete and utter **** at it. I can't do large amounts of micromanagement in real-time to save my life. I'm a slow paced gamer to begin with, I like to take my time and think things through from multiple different angles, hence why I generally prefer turn-based (both for strategy and RPGs).


RTS against other players is a pressure cooker, but I enjoy the campaigns etc. against the computer. There's more time to relax, play with units etc. I wish there was a new RTS with an awesome campaign a la Warcraft 2 or Starcraft 1 (You know, when the writing was still good).

Isn't Kiwami remake of Yakuza 1 on PS2? I've never played PS2 titles, but enjoyed all Yakuza, I've played so far.

Yeah, it's a remake of the first game.

Tried it s few times, hard game to learn, especially without any graphic mods.

I used to. I miss it as it was/still is one of the most strategic games ever produced.

THQNordic is showing a few games at Gamescom, and since they're one of the publishers that best fit my interests...

 

The first new announcement is a brand new original IP. This open world RPG is set in a unique universe and will be a post-apocalyptic kung-fu fable.

 

The first could even be the unknown Obisidian project, though we know so little about it it does supposedly fit 'new IP' and 'post apoc'; plus THQNordic would seem to be a good fit with Obsidian and there simply aren't that many RPG studios that could do such a project which aren't already doing stuff. OTOH the Obsidian project is probably too early to be 'fully playable' except maybe as a vertical slice.

 

Their second unannounced title sounds interesting as well.

Kung-fu fable?  Maybe Obsidian is carrying on their tradition of doing BioWare's sequels.  :shifty:

THQNordic should just find some badass developer to make Jagged Alliance 3. Nothing else matters. :D

 

But i do hope that Aquanox thing turns out the be decent enough, read better than other Aquanox games, so on the level of archimedean dynasty. :D

Jagged Alliance is burned. None of the titles after JA2 were able to take over the torch, most of them failed horribly even without the JA name. I doubt anything good will happen with it anywhere in the future...

The first Aquanox was "Starlancer, UNDER-WATER!", right? Or am I confusing it with something else?

Hmm, Starlancer was still a space sim of the old, Aquanox games went more into arcade shooter than sim territory. >_< Oh and a full on Geforce 3 TI commercial. >_<

Too bad the lead writer of Aquanox deceased, I liked where the story was heading.

It's never had a decent development team, though. I wonder what will happen with Ian Currie and Turbine, since Turbine seems to be in a slow motion march to the death? He is probably the only guy who could do it, although I'd be interested to see what Firaxis could do with it as well. Xcom 2 had quite a bit of the JA feel.

 

The crazy thing is all those security contractors you hear about in the news sound exactly like they are coming out of the Jagged Alliance database.

Haha, yeah. I remember 20 years ago when I first played the games, I thought "man, this would be kinda cool to have in real" ... and now look where we are. It pretty much exactly happened that way. Nowadays I don't think it's that cool anymore, though.
