It showed nothing about the game other than it being marvel. We could tell that from the title.

1) setting. Means nothing to me, but might mean something to marvel fans

2) selection of heroes - from movie A listers like Ironman, Caps, Dr. strange, B listers, like Ghost Rider and some I am not familiar with

3) we create our customisable Avatar - I think the “hero” who is resurrected. From interviews it’s supposed to have a bigger RPG focus with a camp and conversations with heroes we recruit. 

FIraxis’ Marvel Game sounds good on paper, but I am doubtful it will actually be good. Looking advertising around Chimera Squad it seems that Firaxis deems XCOM2 too complicated to new comers. I shudder to think what they will do with an IP aimed at a mass market. 

There is of course chance they will make good game first, and then let IP do the selling, but I am doubtful.

Firaxis is a decent sized company, so I expect they are also developing Xcom 3. If this Marvel game is near Chimera Squad quality, I'll probably be pretty happy. 

Ghost Rider did seem like an off fit with that bunch, too. But maybe that's just because my last memory of him was a Nick Cage movie. :p

That would mean XCOM3 wouldn’t be Jake’s baby. Which is not impossible, if Civ can switch directors between installements, why not XCOM. I doubt it though. In interview, Jake mentioned that higher ups contacted him, precisely because they liked XCOM and wanted something like that but with Marvel. I assume XCOM team is working on Midnight Suns.

I like XCOM but loathe superheroes, so so torn about this.

It was observed already that FiraXCOMs were pretty much superhero games. Jumping from Enemy Within and XCOM2 to superheroes isn’t really a change in tone. I doubt they will kill off Ironman though - temporary decommission like in Chimera is more likely.

Yeah, I do tend to forget that the XCOM I love is mostly the work of modders and not Solomon and co when giving credit. I have a four-digit number of hours in the first game, and it'd still be four digits if I only counted Long War. XCOM 2 didn't even get to three digits.

I will have zero interest in Marvel-COM if it doesn't have permadeath. There are certain games, namely X-COM and Fire Emblem, in which I consider permadeath an integral part of the experience. I will be quite happy if they make it an option to disable permadeath, other people can play the game however they want, but if the option to have permadeath is not there, that's a deal-breaker for me.

My expectations of marvelcom is a game similar in scope to chimera squad, testing the water with more features for XCOM 3. The marvel license just adds bonus sales and possibly draws new players to the genre, ideally further increasing the sales potential of XCOM 3.

 

I would not hold my breath

for permadeath.

From what is said, it is unlikely to be XCOM-like when it comes to structure. RPG has been thrown around, so I expect bigger focus on linear progression. Chatting to "party members" in the base and building relations was also mentioned. And there is aformention main character, more similar to traditional RPGs then strategy/tactics hybrids. We will see what it will be in the end.

Welp, now I know what hell looks and sounds like. That might have been the most off-putting trailer I have seen since the Ghostbusters 2016 trailer.

I'm assuming this is supposed to appeal to the Fortnite crowd, which is admittedly a big crowd.

Unexpected late DLC to fabaolous Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun coming in December 2021. It seems that no changes has been made to the roster, which is a shame... I expected for at least one new character. I just hope there will be no story retcon, though timeline of the events is unclear.

This game seems to have greatly benifitted from its time spent in EA, as it looks so much better than when it went into EA. It's on my Steam wishlist.

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

you got me

I do like browsing here, you're much nicer than gog forums. But I also like to browse magazines (like physical ones) and digital news sites and I miss late physical era of my childhood.

Well, it is very hard to recommend anything, most of the online magazines, which I have read when I was much younger, are now riddled with game non-related political stuff, which do not tell me anything about the games, which I want to play. When I want to read politics, I go read political magazines. For me gaming is escapism from my busy daily routine, and I want to stay it that way... And I am saying that, as a person, who gets called "woketard" a lot because of my IRL career 🤷‍♂️

Anyway back to topic, if you are into Japanese games, I can recommend you Siliconera, which is probably a single online magazine, which I still read, which is still not completely rotten by the politics...

@MelusinaI can't give away my trade secrets. How else can I maintain my status as the guy posting weird, niche games nobody else has ever heard of and probably nobody else cares about? It took me years to build that reputation.:shifty:

On a serious note, I get some of my obscure gaming news from Niche Gamer. Word of warning: Do not, I repeat, DO NOT go into the comments section of the articles. If you do, I hope you have a thick skin and don't say I didn't warn you. They report on a lot of Japanese and Korean games, but not exclusively so. I would say about 75% of they stuff they post is of no interest to me, but it's worth browsing occasionally because I find some interesting games in the other 25% I might not find on a more mainstream site, where it would either get ignored because it's too, well, niche, or even if someone wrote a short article on it, it would get almost instantly bumped off the front page by 7 articles about the new CoD.

It's looking pretty good! 

I wonder if they are going to implement NPC's anytime soon.

The cinematic trailer was cool, but coming home to some people is not actually in the game unless you play multiplayer, I think. I need some company. They don't need to dance around in bikinis like in Conan, but it would be nice if they can manage the stove. :p
