It's ok I guess but a little of a letdown, not having the traditional Enhanced Edition.

 Very enthusiastic people still justify that, as in that the expansions are enough. But those were not free and the DLC content was very minor.

 

It's a great game sure, but the endings definately have that roughness and a feel of being rushed, while all the parts of the product when coming together - in my eyes can't compete with things like Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines on the level of writing, story, design or even gameplay decisions. Witcher 3 is supposed to be this amazing RPG of the year - but it's not their merit. It's the failure of others to build upon healthy practices of other properly dignified Role Playing experiences.

The first Styx was a great game, so I guess the successor will be quiet entertaining, too.

 

This ECHO game looks very promising gameplay-wise. Let's see how that turns out.

 

EDIT: Just read that the people working on ECHO are ex-IO Interactive members, who worked on Hitman for example. It shall come spring 2017.


FM's: Builder Roads, Old Habits, Old Habits Rebuild
WIP's: Several. Although after playing Thief 4 I really wanna make a city mission.

I couldn't get into Styx. The ai seemed so robotic that I felt like I was playing a platform game rather than avoiding actual opponents.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – Pre-order DLCs are now available for free to all owners

 

DXMD_2016_05_13_E32016_ONLINE_34_1464360

 

Now here is a nice surprise. Similarly to a lot of publishers, Square Enix had announced some exclusive pre-order DLC packs for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Contrary to most of them, however, Square Enix has just made available for free to all owners of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided all these pre-order DLCs.

As such, PC gamers will get for free the Desperate Measures extra in-game Mission, a compilation of skins for Adam’s armor and trench coat, a re-skinned pistol and combat rifle, and various consumables.

PC gamers can also download three digital books from here. These three digital books are: 1) Deus Ex: Hard Line, written by James Swallow, which stars Alex Vega, 2) mini comic The Dawning Darkness and 3) a mini artbook.

 

Shame there are still $$ of dlc-content cut from the original game, maybe wait for the GOTY version? This is what Squre enix gets for trying to cash grab the player base with their short-sighted pre-order B$...

This is sad. The best protest is boycotting the game with this.

Or at least boycott the DLC's even if it's really good content, but delivered in a shameful overpriced, lousy manner. Most important vote would be the money vote. I don't know what's wrong with Square Enix lately.

 

Compare this to the rebranded, fresh Austrian THQ Nordic (reborn and ready to go) making free updates for old games such as Titan Quest, Red Faction Guerrilla, Darksiders.

Yes.

 

The new strategy is to level down the price of the "core" game (after some months) and mantain the DLC price high for ages.

The problem is that sometimes the "core" game get mutilated/butchered by that strategy.....(see Mankind Divided).

New videos from ME: Andromeda. Frankly, I can't shake the feeling of how generic the whole thing is. Previous titles had a lot more character. I hope I'm wrong though.

They lost their bearings after Mass Effect 2's cheap cliffhanger and the inability to compete with Witcher probably. Without saying that Mass Effect 1 is a pretty self sufficient story without the need for sequels.

It's like The Godfather 1 and 2 that didn't really need that 3'rd one to end the trilogy. Some franchises just need to end. Out of respect for the consumer first of all.

So I guess the question is, how do I sandbox Origin to prevent it from browsing outside of its own folder, its assigned games folder and my registry.

I'd say out of respect for themselves, but that never happens with video games :)

 

I liked ME2 for the art direction and pace, but the story was basically "You must gather your party before venturing forth." Wow, Hero's Journey looks super inventive from down here.

 

If you don't mind spoiling first hour of play a bit, you might want to see this one below. Still feels kind of generic. They definitely went back to "light" SF with this one. Humans look like millennials or hipster baristas dressed in some totally different clothes. Basically the same thing happened in Horizon ZD. Also, there's something very wrong with the faces. Is it uncanny valley yet? Characters seem to have some kind of twitches or nervous reactions that look really odd. It's awesome that your dad is voiced by Clancy Brown, but he's got super greasy complexion and raises his eyebrows almost randomly while talking.
