  1. It's now available on the slightly less but still very despicable plattform of Steam and most likely totally not my jam.
  2. I can't edit my first post so I add my short review here: I've played Despotism 3k for about two hours now and it's a puzzle management kinda game. You play as the AI Overlord forcing humans to work for you and you have to balance the production of food energy and new humans while the pressure to produce more and more always increases. I find it too hard to be enjoyable. It's stressing me out even on easy mode. I feel this goes against anything what an AI should feel. There should be an option to make time pass way slower. But let's leave it at that. Now the humour is great, there is a ton of reference to classical Sci-Fi movies that are campy enough to be mildly amusing and the story, premise and visual art style of the game is pretty great to awesome.
  3. Sorry for the late reply, this got somehow buried here. I've played Despotism 3k for about two hours now and it's a puzzle management kinda game. Balance the production of food energy and humans while the pressure to produce more always increases. I find it too hard to be enjoyable. It's stressing me out even on easy mode. There should be an option to make time pass way slower. That said, the humour is great, the is a ton of reference to classical Sci-Fi movies that are campy enough to be mildly amusing and the story, premise and visual art style of the game is pretty great to awesome. Hope that helps. What is less stressful to play is Hades. It's a mostly meh to good roguelike with the occasional spike of woah, that was great in case you get rng that isn't a bitch. I don't understand why everyone is having such a great time with it, but I hate roguelikes, rng and dying in general. And that it manages to keep me vested enough to be interested is a good sign. The story is great and I'm a sucker for Greek mythology, so that helps, but other than that I just seem to be interested in a niche and so alienated by the mainstream that even overwhelmingly positive rated games warrant little to no positive emotional response... Oh well, to be honest I feel far more connected to the main antagonist: Hades himself than to his son, the protagonist shown in the picture below...
  4. YoU nEeD to pRepARe to sUrVIVE tHe onCOMiNg Holy Crusade! It doesn't matter how you look or what the game looks. The Holy Crusade is coming to get you! That alone was enough to wishlist it for me.
  5. I play(ed) Despotism 3k, thanks to Ross' Game List. That's why I am here btw. So thanks Ross, I guess.
  6. Considering how badly Bethi's recent titles were and considering that I loathe (with a hell bent passion) their only recent game that was considered quite successful (DOOM Eternal) this is extraordinarily mediocre, meh kinda not so bad it's almost good news. Now, for the first time ever I am curious how Starfield and my beloved yet dead Frankenstein carcass of Elder Scrolls will turn out eventually. Imagine for a second if Epic, EA, Activision or Ubi would have bought it... Or warnerbros. Bwhahahah... The end, basically. Microsoft is bad, but it's at least bad with an occasional consumer friendly cherry on top. What they do with accessibility is actually kinda heartwarming for example. I mean it would be, if sub-zero temperature wouldn't be normal working temp for my heart nowadays... And I am regularly using the xBlox Game Pass to play with it being only occasionally horrible. Not like Bethi's client. Besides Microsoft seems to bring most Xblox exclusive titles to PC now. Yeah, it's a typical case of: It could have been so much worse it's actually probably for the best... Addendum: in a perfect world they would just fire Todd Howard so he has to ask Peter Molyneux for a position and then they can lie together. (Pun intended)
  7. Whoa, whoa whoa, slow down there cowboy. Why do the mentally ill have a megaphone? They can use twitter, facebook and forums just like any U.S. President or your grandma.. Why do you write "mentally ill" in big bold letters as if it is something special? How do you know they are mentally ill in the first place? Did they tell you so? How do you know their claim is believable? Please tell me you are an expert in understanding posts so precisely that you can pinpoint their mental issue directly. If so, you should make money out of that and help mend the world. How do you know you aren't mentally ill and should be locked up by your own standards? I am all for a "Not being an arsehole - License". And without you shouldn't be considered a decent human being and thusly not having access to the decent human being club but that's a highly subjective and controversial topic, and as a proud arsehole myself I probably would fail getting that license repeatedly because sometimes it's just the only possible or viable option to be one.
  8. This game tries extremely hard to be ANNO 2205. But only the Moon/Icecaps bit and rougher around the edges. It doesn't come with the shitty Uplay launcher though. So there is that.
  9. Oh wow, I think I am in love. I'm downloading and maybe tell you soon how I liked it.
  10. 1) It's no longer in Early Access. Full release, baby! 2) It's supposedly highly addicting, though after an Initial craze back in Early Access days I have trouble getting back into it. 3) It completely destroys your view on grinding tasks in crafting/survival games and retroactively destroys those game experiences for you. 4) The factory must grow!
  11. I like the expansion part of the game, and would love to play without competitors against something else, but the game focuses on competition alone. It's "hostile-takeover: the game but on Mars" and if you do a hostile takeover you don't get it, because the former enemy's colony just self-destruct. (For balancing reasons) It's supposed to be fantastic in PvP multiplayer but I hate human competition even more than AI. So it's great game, with an interesting premise that is totally not for me. Sad face.
  12. It's the closest thing to an actually sequel to the original Syndicate game. No, no no, not the bad expansion, not the weird and totally uncool second one and not the shitty fps one who just robbed the name and failed. It's still utterly inferior game to the original Syndicate, but considering Syndicate is the best game of all times™, Satellite Reign is pretty fun. Play it when you want a Cyberpunk setting and miss Syndicate enough to accept a downgrade with cooler graphics.
  13. Yup, its "the SIMS" light but in space and with immensely likable characters and awkward campaign missions. I'm utterly biased though.
  14. I played this for a short while before losing interest. The concept is cool, the art direction is great and I'm a sucker for a good Lovecraftian set. Now this should have been a "power fantasy" setting but instead you lose your swarm easily and there is no comeback, only a "restart level". Wrong concept for the wrong type of game. Would play again with a god-mode cheat.
  15. It's uhm, difficult to for me to recommend because it's well... Yeah, that's how the game feels like. Now to be more precise: You can respec your skill setup in between fights for free, the characters are weird and the story is a mess that trails off, comes back, gives you useless backstory that is highly interesting but then there is no follow up leaving you with more questions and making everything bland and unmemorable. If you like min/maxing, combat synergies, adaptation and experimenting with different loadouts the game is probably absolutely fantastic. Sadly, I enjoy a well contained story and character development while not caring for combat synergies and respecing, fiddling with skills and inventory between every fight in my RPGs, so yeah totally not for me...
