    It still looks like shit. But it seems it's the best they can do

    When the beta went live I estimated in the preview the game will be finished in four months. Minimal. I see I was too optimistic. I doubt it will be done in six now.
    Nevermind. Just finish it and don't fukcing dare losing money on it, Brian.

    And as a high tier a backer I demand devment statistics including the budget, after release. Would be interesting to see how different from Tim "Didn't expect that" Schafer's To Be Continued: The Game this project is. I wouldn't get angry or dissapointed no matter what I see. I am just curious how much an experienced dev can overshoot.

    That would be an easy choice, though.

    Indeed. And even though I was a begrudging pledger to PoE I can almost guarantee that Obsidian at the very least have their shit together enough for their game to not look and feel like it was put together without a unified artistic vision.

    Grainy doesn't have anything to do with anti-aliasing. You mean jaggy.



    I hope that they also forgot to turn on the high res textures and to increase the LOD when they took the screenshot

    Why do they describe a storyline from fallout 3 (village of bomb worshippers)

    The graphics are fine. Remind me of Commandos. Don't get what all the complaining is about. More worried about design.

    Yeah, because being worried about the gameplay more than the graphics is the true sign of a sellout ;)

    Just as an aside, Fallout 3 copied it from the original Wasteland (well, it wasn't a village in wasteland, but a sect in the 'temple of the mushroom cloud', but the idea was the same).

    Let's see...
    I've paid for Beta access during the kickstarter...
    The Beta's been going on for months already...
    The fun part thereof is practically over, as they're starting the pure bug-hunting phase next month...
    Fargo's opened up beta access to backers and non-backers alike... (*)
    And I still haven't had a chance to access the goddamn thing because they've yet to release a Linux version!
    :x

    I demand satisfaction!


    (*) a real dick move, as it allows non-backers to play before backers like myself who did pledge for beta access.

  15. "For the bold"? Really? That's the best they could come up with? I actually have a half-empty bag of Doritos sitting next to me +M

    i didnt play the beta but from most of the quest design examples i ve read about here it sounds like Wasteland 2 is a spiritual successor to Fallout 3. mind you i m still hoping those codexians are just negative cunts singling out 3 shitty quests out of 90 reasonable ones but i m slowly losing hope. shitty humor and a complete lack of logic in quest design like what hiver, felipepe & co. describe sure seems like the sign of bethesda to me.

    its as if Mr. Fargo read that a certain bunch of cunts hated Fallout 3 only because it was first person and not turn-based, so he s bringing Fallout 3 to that audience while keeping retarded combat , retarded humor and retarded quest design intact as in the original :p

    now i hope i m just a negative cunt too but at least thanks to reading early access impressions this kickstarter wont surprise rape my expectations like SRR(DMS) did.

    sigh

    I can't believe I bought into Fargo.

    And modding definitely won't save this game, not in the state I played. Four months? Six months? It needs at least another year.

    Somehow the game looks worse than it did in that long demo video from many months back.

    I thought the game looked great last July. The issue was never the aesthetics; it issue has been the gameplay - which was scantly there last I played.

    I'm not talking about graphics. I'm talking about artistic direction, or rather, the complete lack of. Hopefully you're as smart as I generally give you credit for and understand the difference between the two.

    Not very bold of you to leave a bag half full.
