Now that this has launched on PC and the new consoles I thought it might be worth digging up this old thread.

Quote from: Bullwinkle on April 03, 2017, 07:18:41 PM

I just read a preview (can't find it now), and the reporter kept coming back to the question: "Why isn't this just a Saint's Row game?"

Probably because they kind of ran that franchise into the ground?  You became the president.  With superpowers.  Aliens invaded.  They blew up the earth.  You went into cyberspace.  You went to literal hell.  It's kind of run out of places to go.  

This gives them a chance to be in a new city, with an all-new cast of characters and changes to core mechanics rebalancing everything without breaking the fiction or history that fanboys would cause an outcry about.  

I loved Saints Row, especially 3 and 4, but I for one am very happy that this is a brand new franchise.
86  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Kickstarter] Outcast HD Reboot on: April 03, 2017, 05:46:51 PM
A bit of a late update, but this game is being published by BigBen Interactive.  It was supposed to come out by March but has now been announced as delayed until the fall.

But they did release this debut trailer

To me the trailer looks a bit ...low budget.  Jilted animations, floaty jumping, etc.  But hopefully it recreates what people loved about the original.
87  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Volition - Agents of Mayhem on: April 03, 2017, 05:17:53 PM
They have released a new Bad vs Evil trailer and announced that the game will be coming out on August 15th this year.  Looks like a good time to me!

I am intrigued by LEGO City Undercover... but I am unlikely to buy it any time soon. It would be for one of the kids birthdays... probably the younger so that would be September.

I played it on the Wii U when it first came out a couple years ago and it's great fun!  The perfect GTA clone for the family, with lots of humor and everything.  And I imagine (or hope) that the loading times that were pretty bad on that system will be lessened on better hardware.

I went to the late showing of this last night and really enjoyed it!  I didn't have many expectations, and didn't even realize it was rated R, so it surprised me on multiple fronts.  Great way to send of those characters.

Looks like this is having a free weekend on Origin (and consoles?) if you still haven't played it.  And if you're not buried in all the other recent quality titles.
94  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Total War: Warhammer 2 (even more totaller warring!) [PC] on: March 31, 2017, 08:45:44 PM
Sega and Creative Assembly have announced Total War: Warhammer 2 today with the release of a cinematic trailer and a few details including new races (and a little tease at the end).  Sounds like it will be out later this year, but no hard release date yet.

What’s in Total War: WARHAMMER II?

- A new style of narrative campaign in which players race against the other factions to save or destroy the Great Vortex while thwarting competing Races
- Players will build and expand empires, raise armies, develop cities and fight vivid grand-scale battles in the classic Total War style
- This campaign is set across four mysterious new continents:
  * Ulthuan
  * Naggaroth
  * The Southlands
  * Lustria
- Four new playable races, each with unique campaign mechanics and army rosters of Legendary Lords, Heroes, spellcasters, troops, monsters and siege weapons:
  * High Elves
  * Dark Elves
  * Lizardmen
  * And a fourth, yet to be revealed… (clearly this seems to be the Skaven from the trailer - EN9)
- A suite of thrilling new campaign and battle features inspired by the Warhammer lore
- Additionally, a vast combined campaign map covering the geographic areas of the first and second parts of the trilogy. Players will be able to embark on campaigns as any owned, playable race from both games. This will be available for free shortly after launch for owners of both games.

I still have to go and play the first game that I got in last month's Humble looks pretty dang cool, I just have too many games these days.
95  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Release date 3/3/2017 on: March 31, 2017, 07:03:44 PM
I guess they put out a patch that significantly increases the framerate in most situations, at least on the Switch. 

I'm curious to hear what the verdict is on the Wii U version as well.  Also whether there were any tweaks to the weapon durability in the early game.

They just put out a trailer for the Faster, Baby! DLC that launches today.  It sounds like everybody gets access to the new area, but only those who own the DLC or Season Pass get the actual story and other content.

I never actually played the base game since my Deluxe Edition from Amazon didn't come with a Steam key, and by the time it got worked out a couple weeks later I was too angry and disillusioned that I never started.

Not a deep discount yet, but it's on sale this week for $30 (25% off).

Well worth the price for anyone even remotely interested!!  Give the demo a shot, but it's a great game and I was happy to support these guys.

I guess the Mafia 3 Faster, Baby! DLC is out this week, so I added that up top and I get it as part of the Deluxe edition.  From what I hear, the new location may be freely accessible by everyone, even if you don't own the season pass or DLC pack.

I want to read reviews of Rain World, but probably won't pick it up if it's as hard as it sounds.  Meganoid and Sumoman might be interesting later.

This is an awesome movie, well worth anyone checking it out!  It's available for streaming on Netflix in the US, so if you have a subscription you should check it out!

I really enjoyed just how real the zombies felt, like actually running and climbing and falling and face just gave them a realistic gravity you don't see in many zombie movies (especially CGI fests like World War Z).

I felt the same way. 

But instead of trying out Iron Fist this weekend I just started on Into the Badlands, which seems to be a decent replacement so far.  Sort of a post-apocalyptic Kung Fu or something, I guess.

Played the two Rescue Ranger games last year. They were not great. The first one was fine but the second was worse in my opinion. As far as the first DuckTails would recommend the remake over the original.

My big problem with the Duck Tales remake was that they put in unskippable cutscenes.  They eventually patched it so you could skip them, but only if you had already beaten the game!  That would be bad enough in a new game, but in a remake of a NES game that was untenable.

T2 Trainspotting (no, not joking)

Why would this be a joke?  I've been looking forward to it since it was announced.

Because the name is T2...well known to mean Terminator 2.

And it's also a sequel to a movie about heroin addicts coming 20 years after the original. 

Lots of reasons people might think that a post with that title might be a joke.
116  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Capcom's Disney Afternoon Classic NES Collection on: March 17, 2017, 03:34:41 PM
Capcom is putting out a collection of 6 classic NES games that (if you are a certain age) you may remember as being part of your everyday after school cartoon time. 

  • Duck Tales
  • Duck Tales 2
  • Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers
  • Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers 2
  • Darkwing Duck
  • TaleSpin

They are still in pure NES form (no HD remasters here), and I think this is being done by Mike Mika and Digital Eclipse guys that also did the Mega Man NES collection.  They have a real dedication to preserving classic games and doing it right, so that's a good sign to me.

This trailer highlights some of the additions like Boss Attack, Time Attack, Rewind, Concept Art, etc:

Disney Afternoon Collection announcement trailer

Personally I loved Duck Tales, but that got it's own remaster a while back.  I also owned Darkwing Duck since I was a big fan of that show, but I don't know whether it was actually a good game or I just had nothing else to play for like 6 months.  Probably the latter.

I had never really gotten into the Mass Effect series, so had been looking at this "reboot" as a great way to get in after they had really found the core of it and polished everything. 

After watching some videos I am definitely not jumping on board.  Too many other games I'm interested in to bother with this.
