    Why would the head of a studio stoop to posting butthurt comments on twitter? None of this makes any sense to me. It's obvious that if they really did pour 7 mil into this out of their own pocket, they're never making that money back and if they did, why the fuck does the game look so bland? Where did the money go anyway? In the 350 needlessly voiced NPCs I bet.

    The bomb has been planted.

    This failaure actually makes me root for them as The Underdog.
    Might be buying the game sooner than I anticipated.

    People give negative Steam reviews bc their boxed copies came in damaged or bc of a missing FOV slider. Everyone who thinks Steam ranking has any value or weight whatsoever should apply for a brain cell replacement therapy.

    For Steam there is a patch. You have to restart the game.

    I'd guess many of them already moved on to the Wasteland battle royale game (Frost Point).

    It isn't just on ultra, it's on fucking medium as well. On machines that should blow this game out of the water. You don't know what you're talking about.

    When the combat music started having vocals, I was blown away! My first impressions of this game are that it's amazing, but, keep in mind, I'm also someone who enjoyed might and magic x, even though it was extremely poorly optimized. A great joy to play for me - saddened to see that steam reviews it so poorly, would've loved to see expansions and such for it.

    Thanks, that information made my day. Checked my mail and got it too. Now with the manual and guidebook I can at least fantasize and plan out my future party (can't play for a couple of months because of shitty computer :().

    It means a world for a random Joe who has clicked on the link at random. Which means 95% consumers of any given game.

    so looking at videos it seems like they use the Unreal engine only for walking around in first person and tons of post processing as everything else such as the interface looks like a fucking mobile game with big fisher price buttons and the cutscenes are literally just moving cutouts and worse than you'd find in your average visual novel

    the battle inferface also looks like it was made for tablets

    and you people are excited for this

    So how close are we to Fargo buying Interplay and releasing games made by contractors, for contractors?

    Out of the Steam top 10 now, a few hours after launch. Probably the rating to blame.

    Oh wow.

    How something as simple as turn-based, blobber, pop-up-encounter combat already mastered in the Apple ][ days could be fucked up so much?

    They kind of fucked up:
    - a lot of backer did not get their keys,
    - awful performance on standard configurations (UE4 configuration !?),
    - i don't understand why it needs 50GB HDD space, it looks ok but nothing special,
    - the pre-made characters selection is limited (only female elves or dwarf male !?),
    - the combat system is weak (shared pool of actions points - W.T.F !?),
    - inefficient skill tree (you have to waste points on +1 INT or +1 STR skills in order to get what you actually want),
    - probably more broken stuff (dialog text is floating !?).

    Honestly the first impression is a disaster but then it reminded me of Arx Fatalis which is charming in a way.

    I think it has more potential than Numenera to be a good game however atm I've played too little to say anything final.

    Anyway I will restart my play-through because by mistake I've chosen Brian's portrait and I honestly don't want to see his mug for the entire game.

    Fuck that shit,it was good idea to try make some blobber,but they did fuck it up. It is a fucking blobber,who the fuck needs all that fancy shit like good graphics,shiny effects and voice acting?! The game could have been made with half a million and end up better than this one. Also how hard could be to make a blobber run on most machines and not chug on power cards like 1080ti??? How retarded you must be to push the game in this sorry condition???

    :negative:
    I am really pissed off because this could have been success and opened the marked for decent blobbers. Fuck you Fargo,fuck you with giant green dildo with spikes!!!
