How is it inclusive if you can only choose one gender? :-

And she's probably white.

 

I bet neither of them is handicapped.  These abeleist scum disgust me.  :x

Looks like your 'wayward companion' is blind since she has cataracts, that would count as a disability. It would also explain why she is 'wayward', I guess. They've clearly thought things through pretty well there.

 

Have to admit, I'm moderately interested despite it sounding like something the 'codex would come up with as a parody.

Include female, exclude male

 

This is the new ****

 

? There's nothing politically correct or incorrect about having female leads. I don't really see where you're coming from.

"Good thing I don't heal my characters or they'd be really hurt." Is not something I should ever be thinking.

 

I use blue text when I'm being sarcastic.

The Mooncrest story apparently follows Sera a newly minted Paladin of Mooncrest who meets Pirotase and together they uncover a conspiracy. All of the relationship/dialogue pieces is then between these two set characters rather than the Bio-way of multiple companions to make a party from. I'm guessing that's where the "A story of sisterhood" bit comes from.

So it's basically Hunted: Demon's Forge, except politically correct and inclusive.

I liked Hunted:The Demon Forge, so that wouldn't be so bad. Particularly if they can improve on its gameplay.

 

Don't really care about the forced protagonists for this nor hunted

Isn't it just...not a player-made protagonist? :ermm: Are we gonna start complaining about all of the literally hundreds - thousands, really - of games that don't give you a choice in regards to the character(s) you play, now? This isn't anything new...

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Of all the dot points to talk about, it's the least interesting to me. I'm more concerned about the "tactical-but-Souls" combat claimed: how does that even work? I'd have thought those are fundamentally opposite things. Either I'm in there swinging my sword around, or I'm at arms length directing the (two?) characters independently. In line with my preference for only controlling the one character in any given RPG, I would certainly hope the companion character can be set fully autonomous - and I'm kind of expecting it to be like any recent Bioware game, in that "hey you can give your party members orders if want, I guess" indifferent sort of way. I wouldn't call that tactical, but I don't want tactical, so hey.

 

Totally fine with the predefined characters. Also fine with fully customised characters. I only really complain about games that try to compromise and do semi-custom, as you lose the strengths of both approaches.

I'm fine with all three, but like fully customized the least; as those are the least supported by most RPGs, and games rarely take much notice of the custom PC's custom personality.

it's like calling a movie racist/sexist because the mc is a white male and there is no version that uses a black or asian male or female as mc

The words freedom and liberty, are diminishing the true meaning of the abstract concept they try to explain. The true nature of freedom is such, that the human mind is unable to comprehend it, so we make a cage and name it freedom in order to give a tangible meaning to what we dont understand, just as our ancestors made gods like Thor or Zeus to explain thunder.

Stupidity leads to willful ignorance - willful ignorance leads to hope - hope leads to sex - and that is how a new generation of fools is born!


We are hardcore role players... When we go to bed with a girl, we roll a D20 to see if we hit the target and a D6 to see how much penetration damage we did.

I can only speak for myself, but quite obviously I was joking around about having a problem with the characters in the game, poking fun at the utter insanity of today's outrage culture and the so called "progressives" (What exactly they're trying to progress us toward is unclear.  I think it might be oblivion).  I'd like to think everybody else was too.

New Assault Android Cactus trailer

 

 

I've had my eye on this for a while now, it looks like a pretty great twin-stick.  I just wish it had online co-op (it only has local co-op).

I am wondering how much that game leak influenced the final sales. Me personally, from the screenshots and videos we had seen till that date, the game was pretty much not interesting at all. But then the leak appeard and BOOM suddenly everyone was talking about DX:HR and the hype became so big, because people suddenly noticed how much it plays like the original and that it is pretty cool.

Well ladies, some good news for you which might help you out countering the online abuse. A study which proves the obvious fact. If a man harasses you, he really sucks at the game and feels threatened by your skills :)

If this study gets little bit well know, it might help them to rather shut up :p

so being d!ck is symptom of sucking at gaming? :) not so sure about it but in some cases it may be true

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"

Anyway, I could go for a twin-stick shmup like this, I haven't really played one (outside of arena type twin-sticks) since the Shadowgrounds games.
