They managed to take the bit people love talking about with things like XCOM where folks dying matters a bunch and you were torn up about it, but instead of making it solely a terrible thing you usually save-scum to avoid, it's often just part of how you interact with the stories and the tactical map.
I'll probably play Wildermyth eventually but also... Roguebook is very good
As I was playing Wildermyth, I had this epiphany of, "Oh, this must be what Austin Walker feels like all the time"
I think maybe it's procedurally generated stories? I guess I prefer a more crafted experience for narrative and leave the procedural stuff to the mechanical part.
As much as I love Austin Walker and hearing him talk about the emergent stories he finds in games, this is making me think the game might not be for me.
I just can't seem to get into a bunch of the procedural storytelling that he loves. I enjoy hearing about other people's experiences with them, but for whatever reason I have a hard time sticking with games that don't have a bespoke story or experience they want to show me.
Except for Civ. I'll 'just one more turn' until I drop dead of exhaustion in those games.
That's what I'm saying, actually. I normally can't jive with that. But here, they give characters actual dialogue, there are actual discrete story arcs that are authored, but you have a hand in the tone and relationships between characters.
It's this really smart thing where the plot, the text, is authored. But the subtext, the ways characters connect to each other emotionally, that's guided by the player.
The game lays out who the baddies are, constructs scenarios around that. Gives the villains their moves and motivations, makes the big changes to the world. But the smaller stuff - Are your mage and your warrior friends? Lovers? Rivals? That's chosen by the player.
For me, it's the perfect sweet spot between totally guided and totally freeform. It feels like I'm making a story with the game instead of for the game. It's a real neat trick.
It's what Bioware RPGs have needed for ages, a relationship system that allows players to have more history with characters and the world, while also allowing for more freedom in how those relationships are defined.
I'll have to keep my eye on it and check it out when I reach a lull in games I'm playing.
Speaking of games with vague half assed narratives, the Legend Of Mana remaster is out today and I'll probably get it because I'm weak and a sellout. Here's to continuing my love/hate relationship with it.
The magic system is SO cool, my goodness.
Took me a couple of missions to wrap my head around it, but "The environment is your power" is such a brilliant hook. Your hunter is behind a half-wall of cover, protecting them from that ranged enemy. Your mage can hurl that wall at the enemy. If it hits, hooray, everyone wins! If it misses, well, your hunter is fully exposed.
Those sorts of dilemmas are so, so neat, and the magic system sets them up effortlessly.
Time to play a shooter that was mediocre at best even at the time

I was so disappointed that Legend of Mana wasn't just more Secret of Mana, and was instead... whatever the fuck it is. It's gorgeous and the soundtrack is amazing, but it didn't feel like anything actually happened in the game. And it had systems that you never even had to touch, like crafting.
I'll probably still pick up the remaster because I'm a consumer whore
They appear to be selling the DLC separately.
there are all good, direct storage is going to be very interesting from a pipeline perspective
-edit: DirectStorage is also really cool.
I would assume so. But for x amount of time?
They did not say during their stream. No mention of launch date or cost.
That feels like it was specifically designed to be a giant middle finger to Apple with the lawsuit between them and Epic right now.
7 and 10 were excellent though
8 wasn't bad, just didn't really need to exist
Yeah that's my point!
11 is in line to be bad
Apparently I'm wrong and it's free
Anybody seen something like that?
Windows ME should have seen Microsoft shut down by force
