Midnight Sun's gameplay.

EDIT: For some reason, I really don't like cards in my games. They just always feel uninappropriate for me in digital setting. Not particularly liked cards in my board games either.

Huh. Was not expecting the whole walk around a compound and explore or the cards.

I am not a fan of cards either. But it does look pretty good.

At least there's no gameplay microtransactions?  Honestly, it looks not very good.  Your team members are basically just a load out.  You don't get individual turns, your whole team just gets one turn where you get to take x number of actions (and only 1 movement action for the whole team...).

Also, being a Marvel product, I'm guessing that it will be as close to impossible to mod as they can make it.  So...yeah, I might buy it when I can get it and all the inevitable DLC for $5-$10.

Reforced isn't a word, so I have to assume it's a jab at Blizzard. In any case, the console release means that the main campaign and Soul Harvest will now be using the updated Fallen God engine, delivered as a free update to PC owners. As good an excuse to replay it as any.

I would not keep my hopes up for no MTX... The card mechanic is the most exploited mechanic in conjunction with loot boxes in AAA and F2P games...

This  may seem like a valid point but no one in an interview, if even asked , is going to say " yes I like to discriminate agaisnt xxx " so I am not sure how your idea could be reasonably implemented

But thats why company policies and codes of conduct matter and address these things....you should sign these types of legal documents when you join any private or public sector institution

Then can you please explain to me, why the biggest culprits in the workplace misconduct are the "wokest" companies of them all? Like Ubisoft, Blizzard and now Paradox? This is a serious question... They even have Chief Diversity Officers with 6 digits salaries to take care for that, but it seems to me, they are just rotten to the core, and the CDO position is there only to cover up their ****ups...

 

2 hours ago, BruceVC said:

:lol:,  you right ....their are numerous examples of certain companies being in contravention of their own codes of conduct

But I cannot comment on the gaming industry and why this happens. Because personally I have only worked primarily in listed companies in the financial and software sector and people absolutely do get fired if they discriminate through cases like sexism or racism 

Its a clear violation of any company policy I have ever signed  so the culture of discrimination doesnt grow or be practiced because you get fired.....it really can be as simple as that

But Mamie, something else about finding solutions to discrimination 

I firmly believe this can be vastly reduced but please.....I beg you in the interests of all things sustainable and effective....we dont need  unions or the idea of unionization in the gaming industry as a solution

This is not a union problem

This is not a union issue, but I do not agree with you, that gaming does not need a unions. I cannot judge how is this in every country, but properly working unions in a Slovak company can guarantee you up to triple monthly income, much safer and healthier working conditions, etc., etc... compared to a Slovak company, if there are no unions 🤷‍♂️

I  have very bad SA experiences with unions, very bad

But you clearly have properly working unions in Slovakia and we dont. For example our state controlled energy company is running at about 24 Billion Euro loss and has  been for about 5-6 years due to state capture corruption that is now over . Unions at the SOE ( state owned entity ) are demanding double inflation salary  increases and performance bonuses !!! But the institution is running at an incredible loss and is just costing us tax payers money....the unions are also fighting logical and normal structural reforms to address this drain on the SA tax base as we  still have to bailout every year  all our loss making SOE ....and  this issue occurs with almost all our unions. They make outrageous demands in state owned institutions that are funded by taxpayers yet are running at a loss

I would not say, we have properly working unions here, but I still see advantages having them in Slovak private owned companies. But I do not have any experience how their work in state owned companies. There are no bad news about them in our media, so they might not be bad as well. :shrugz:

About Midnight's Sun. I think the idea might be to try different kind of RNG? XCOM is very much about randomising successful outcome of your actions. What they randomise in M'sS are actions available to you in each turn. I just don't care for that sytem. Deck building never felt satisfying to me, in the same picking stuff from a skill tree is. At least the tactical maps isn't completely smoke and mirrors as positioning has some importance. 

It's just... I doubt it will be nearly as good in being a card game, as a card game. RPG part doesn't interest me, as Firaxis doesn't have a good track record in the little bit of writing they have put in their game. I also don't care that much for Marvel licence to fanboy over the characters. The hub part looks very jank, but it's pre-alpha. Maybe they make it so the walking animation actually works for the speed the character is moving with.

Last question  I want to ask you   on this topic because I dont want to hijack a gaming discussion with this type of interesting non-gaming debate

When you say you have unions in the private sector that get salary increases and bonuses these companies I assume are not running at a loss ? So in other words would you agree with me you cant expect a bonus normally when the company fails to make its yearly target or is running at a loss because these are 2 separate things but both present the same problem....the private sector company cant pay you a bonus or double your salary increase if it has no money to pay this type of expense

Well in some case you are of course correct, but at the same time, I believe, if private company is unable to pay their employees a wage, which is good enough for living decent life (e.g. not being in poverty, despite working 8 hours a day, including overtime (of course only in case that the employee is responsible with its spending),  then this company does not deserve to be on the market.

Just to clarify it, in Slovakia, minimum wage is around 650EUR brutto (dunno the exact number). Cost of living in our capital is somewhere around 800-1200EUR monthly for a single person. So the owner of any company in our capital, which is paying less than 800 EUR netto, should be hit in the balls with a giant hammer...

In the very random gaming news section:

@Hurlsnot died at least 3 times already playing Encased.

Oh, I've died a bunch too. Very adventure gamey scenarios. Sure, I'll test out your coffin. Or sure I'll take that muscle car out for a spin. Or sure I'll hide in the elevator during launch. :p

Yeah, monitoring your vital signs has become a full time occupation ever since you mentioned I may have to take care of your kids if something were to happen to you.

Unobtrusively informing you about my new ebook (which you should feel free to read and shower with praise).

The stealth system is making no sense to me. I'm lockpicking all the doors in the tutorial area but doing so puts the relevant NPC on alert permanently, not that there are any consequences to being caught (as far as I know).

And yeah, when I heard people say that stealth was broken, I thought maybe it'd be like Skyrim, surely it can't be any easier than that. Welp, the stealth detection radius is about half a metre and is non-directional. I'm completely baffled by this design.

 

 

EDIT: I was wrong, the alert status does go away eventually, after like 10 minutes real time. This could get tedious pretty quick...

EDIT2: Leaving the zone and returning has no apparent effect.

I do make a lot of bad decisions. This weekend I have a triathlon in shark infested waters, so be prepared. 👍

So KOTOR remake is official then. No word if it will be on PC.

It must be. Would be a slap in the face to PC gamers otherwise.

I think it is as they showed the exclusives last.

God of War Ragnarok with no release date or if it will be coming to PS4 is too funny.

edit: well nothing much from the end interviews. Hopefully they change the fighting mechanics in the remake of KOTOR as it seems they are changing stuff.

By this track record I guess Bioware games will all get remade around one or two decades after release. What's next, Jade Empire?

On Sony's blog, the developer says that Knights of the Old Republic Remake will be a "console exclusive on PlayStation 5 at launch." Lucasfilm Games later confirmed that the game will also come to PC.

 

So, not a full slap in the face, maybe just a creepy caress?

AKTUALLLLLLLLLLY

Most of the remakes were done by someone else. Maybe you'll get lucky and they won't spite you.

Wouldn't that be nice. I suspect, however, that it is too close of being considered a "chinese appropriation", or something. I would dig JE with a better combat system though. 

EDIT. Wouldn't it be nice, if they remade KOTOR2 as well, and work with Obsidian or/and Avellone and like finish it, this time around?

I hope the ridiculous overuse of rapid camera rotation is just in cutscenes. I mean, even just in the cutscenes it would potentially get nauseating, but I can't imagine gameplay with the camera going spastic.
