Share your favourite moments from Obsidian games and win consoles!

Kostabi

It's not very specific but there were moments in Alpha Protocol that it was impossible to not feel like James Bond. Stealthing around while an evil villain taunts you from on high as you're casually head shotting his minions with a silenced pistol? Brilliant.

I'm not trying to take away from the kind gesture of Devolver but there's certainly an element of it being a little empty.

Barbaric survival game Conan Exiles looks more and more promising

Kostabi

1 year ago

@christopherbrady Not sure how this is a surprise really, there are plenty of references to slaves in the Conan stories, comics and movies. In fact, I'd say a vast swathe of sword and sorcery books tend to have slaves in them on some level. There is always some evil empire or clan abusing a populace.

I get why someone may not be comfortable taking slaves in a game, but lore wise it fits perfectly with what they're doing. After all, you're not playing Conan himself but just existing in his world.

Kostabi

2 years ago

Considering we've been dealing with anti-consumer practices such as important features dressed as DLC and monstrous day 1 patches for a while now it's a bit disappointing EG are only now banging their drum in our defence. Sadly it also feels like they've climbed on their high horse because it actively affects them.

This is a pleasant surprise as I enjoyed the mobile version. It's been a long time since there was a motorsport manager game of note.

It'll live or die on the Steam Workshop implementation though, more than just name changes will be needed. Like Martin said, someone tooling up a WEC mod would be beyond brilliant.

WildStar studio Carbine sheds nearly half of its workforce - report

Kostabi

2 years ago

The problem with MMOs is that like Rogueywon says, there's only so much of a fan base to go around and new games have the problem of trying to lure those folk away from games they already have hundreds of hours invested in. The amount of failed MMOs in the last 5 or so years means any developer or publisher pumping money into them is probably just bored of having a stack of money in the bank.

The Eurogamer podcast is back (again!)

Kostabi

2 years ago

The absolute cardinal sin of podcasts is unpredictable schedules. Opening #1 (how many episode 1s have there been?) with "I think the plan is" doesn't fill listeners with much hope that it'll last. Sound like you're committing and the listeners will be inclined too as well.

Open with proper introductions from the off, as it's always a bit weird to listen to people chat without being able to put names to them straight away. Nothing overly formal but "I'm blah blah, this is Eurogamer podcast and I'm here with...". It's a tried and tested method and sets you up to go off on tangents immediately.

Other than those tiny things just to tighten it up a little I enjoyed the show. Easy going, comfortable chat that didn't sound forced is a bonus this early in your run so good going getting that nailed.

Should have been Nukabeer with collectable bottle caps. As much as I hate exclusive DLC I think they'd have received a pass if each cap had a unique code as it'd finally mean buying an item in-game with an actual cap, literally the most Fallout thing you could do. Ho hum.

Gaming's obsession with mainstream acceptance is a little sad. Let's be honest, the only reason anyone outside of the specialist press (and it's readers) care is because of the headline grabbing money angle. Were any of the ESPN viewers entertained enough to look into DOTA more? I doubt it.
