Now, if the real UFC was like this, I would watch it all the time! :laugh:

Quote: The introduction to this YouTube video by user Tommy Toe Hold claims these glitches are uncommon. I wish that weren't true. I wish that a switch in the options menu allowed for a Glitch Fighting mode. The result would be like a modern Midway sports game, which is to say refreshing and fantastic.

In Eclipse: Avalon's Gate humanity has stumbled upon a treasure trove known as Avalon. This is a galaxy full of exotic and precious resources which could help us turn humanity into a Utopian society.

However, every treasure has a guardian. And this treasures guardian is a vicious race known as the Kha'Dari. They are a greedy, proud people, and they want to keep Avalon to themselves. They believe our knowledge of Avalon's location is a threat to their existence, and they will stop at nothing to destroy the human race as we know it.

Shadowrun

Forums: Latest Threads - Sat, 06/21/2014 - 01:33
So, like I wrote in the other thread, I picked up Shadowrun Returns on sale over at GG. Well, even though I only have less than 2 hours in the original campaign, I can tell that I am going to have a torrid love affair with this franchise. :D Like when I first encountered 40K, I just am finding myself totally in love with this game's unexpectedly fascinating mix of Neo Noir sci-fi and fantasy. The game itself is also a lot of fun. I love the artwork, and the tactical combat is reminding me more of my favorite cyberpunk game Frozen Synapse than it is of XCOM: Enemy Unknown (which this game is usually compared to). It just feels more tactical to me for some reason. And, like Frozen Synapse, the writing is really excellent. It nails the whole noir vibe of a down and out "runner" looking for a quick score but soon finding himself in the deep end of the pool. Really excellent stuff!

I liked the game so much that I grabbed the "Digital Deluxe" upgrade on Steam today just to get that 100 page anthology that come with it (I am desperate to learn more about this setting!). And I also purchased the Dragonfall campaign expansion...just because the devs have already earned my money. :) Yeah, the Shadowrun bug has bitten me deep. :love:

Anyhoo...I was doing a little poking around to see what else might be new to me with this franchise and discovered two bits. First, it looks like the devs of Shadowrun Returns have something else planned. From Harebrained Schemes twitter account:

Quote: We have an announcement coming soon! Stay tuned! :hurray:


Second: why was I not informed about the Shadowrun MMO?!?




It's already in Early Access on Steam! Even with my brief experience with the base game, I can see wonderful potential for a MMO based in this universe! Release date is "when it is done...hopefully Q4 2014".

While I am not prepared to pay for an EA game, especially an MMO that is fraught with risk, I am prepared to pay full price for this game upon release if it gets good reviews. That is how much I am really digging this setting.

In retrospect, I regret not being a Kickstarter backer for SRR....

EDIT: Been looking into this a bit more and now I am becoming pessimistic. First off, I discovered that the same studio that handled Jagged Alliance Online is handling this. If you don't know, JAO is now dead. From what I have read on the Steam forums, the team never delivered a fully functioning game. That is not a good sign for SRO. Lastly, RPGS had an equally dismal article on the history of this project - and it is a tortured history:

http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2014...s/#more-201867

Again, realizing that this is the same people who crashed and burned with JAO, I am inclined to agree with this assessment. I hope I am wrong, though, as SR would make for an awesome MMO design. Really surprised one of the bigger studios never purchased the IP for a AAA MMO experience.

EDIT 2: been digging some more and discovered that those people who are playing the EA version of SRO are optimistic. They seem to be enjoying what the devs have accomplished so far. I am glad to hear that. Let's hope JAO was killed so that SRO could live. :) Guess we'll see sooner or later..

Tormentum - Dark Point 'n Click game [Greenlight] [Indiegogo] - Please, Support us!

Forums: Latest Threads - Tue, 06/17/2014 - 06:41
Hello,

We are OhNoo Studio from Poland, we created a campaign on IndieGoGo and Greenlight for our first game - Tormentum.

Indiegogo - CLICK!
Greenlight CLICK!

More screens: Tormentum website

Tormentum is a surreal adventure game, featuring moral choices.

The action of the game is set in a dark world, veering between dreams and nightmare. The main protagonist, that the player takes control over, doesn't remember his name nor the place where he came from. Visiting new lands, he slowly starts to uncover the truth about himself.

The dreamlike atmosphere featured in the game was inspired by the works of a Polish painter, Zdzislaw Beksinski, and a recently deceased Swiss painter, H.R.Giger, among others.




Unfortunately, bigger problems seem to arise. The flying ship lands in a big castle and the main hero is soon imprisoned in it. This is how this surreal story from the border of dream and reality begins...



Traversing different areas the hero learns the dark world in which he was imprisoned. Visiting new lands, he slowly starts to uncover the truth about himself.






Please, Support us!

I'll be keeping an eye on this one. Looks like it's slow paced and scary, which is always my thing.
