I actually installed The Last Remnant a few days ago, since I'd owned the game for many years and it was one of the games whitelisted by Valve for Steam's new Steam Play for Linux that uses Proton and I figured I'd try it out just to see how Proton worked.  It worked seamlessly and the game installed and ran great with all features working, just as if it was native to Linux, by the way, thanks for asking.

 

Anyway, I wonder why they are removing the game from the storefront?  Do people have compatibility issues on Windows 10?  Maybe they are preparing to launch a remake or remaster?  To be honest, I think it holds up quite well graphically for a 10 year old game.  If they do remaster/remake/reboot it, I would like for them to remake the character progression systems and have someone other than Tzeentch make it, so that us mere mortals might have at least a chance at deciphering it.

That game sucks and don't grind.

Thanks for the heads up but I never liked the game so I will have no interest in ever playing it, nor will I ever have regrets for not giving it the time of day (figuratively speaking of course).

I'm struggling as I don't want to give 2k any more money since their MTX schemes get worse with each game and NBA Live has no VC at all for single player. Problem is that Live is console only and it's Live which hasn't been as good as 2k since maybe the first 2k game.

I got a laugh at the bit at the end where they ask the fans to write their governments in opposition to the laws that are giving them a better game.

I'm calling it now, CDPR will hack VGA later this year and reveal gameplay and a release date. Besides the pre-orders are officially up.

For once I can agree with HoonDing (I know, I'm as surprised as anyone else).  I definitely appreciate the female character, Blaze Fielding (quality cheeseball name BTW), having those meaty Chun Li legs.

Okay I'm watching. I have mixed feelings, I'm not impressed so far by the gameas a whole but it is pretty. The character models are meh looking, graphically, it's a bit dark. I wanna see some open world gameplay and driving, something bright to show me that ugliness is not being hidden by dark canvas/shading.

Dialouge/Voice acting seems to be great, music seems good as well.

As I originally suspected, this seems to be a mix of multiple games: Deus Ex, Doom (2016), Doom III, System Shock. Omikron: Nomad Soul and others. It looks like it will be good, I'm still waiting to be blown away by "next gen" somethings or interesting mechanics.

Edit: Smart gun from Aliens... Nice. That's pretty neat.

I am digging all the customization in the game.

Edit 2: I also like the Blood Dragon mapping vision. That's pretty neat as well.


I'd like to see mini-games and open world + driving. Doubt they'll show those things though. At least not right now probably.

Gameplay looks very refined. Like a much more fully realized version of Deus, but now also open world. Hopefully this vertical slice is indicative of overall quality.

Man, it cut off on the driving lmao One of the people who played it said it went into third person mode and that the city was huge. That's what I wanted to see, I could care less about mission structure and shooting mechanics.

I think I will buy it, reminds me mostly of Deus Ex but more casual and with more abilities/customization. I dig it!
