That was a nice dev diary. Informative and humble. This could be a great documentary.
I am interested in the game. Maybe this will be the good alternative for the David Cage hybris. I hope they will have the money to make all episodes.

Will play this for sure, but still can't get over the fact how dated the visuals are.

As an avid film watcher, i can clearly see the independent film look they are going for. This could be an interesting story, i really hope it feels substantial as many of the indie films its trying to capture usually feels aimless until a certain tragedy or transformation for its characters.

Gameplay wise I really hope the choices you make have real consequences. Like many adventure games before it, the illusion of choice is always there with only actually having one 'real' choice. Some of the examples they show are mundane things that aren't real choices, like moving the lamp so the stuff out of the closet doesn't fall when that is the only actual thing you can do to progress. Or having the other character be shot, clearly the game will not progress unless you stop it: The illusion of choice.

As long as the story is compelling im sure these gameplay issues will can easily be overlooked. I wonder how long the gaming community will go before they start labeling this game as pejoratives like "hipster" or "casual" because im sure the press will be talking about this title, letting more people know about it.

Got a good deal on a pre-order (GMG), I really like what I see so far. In the ultimate age of remakes/remasters, this unique storytelling and style is more than welcome.

Interesting documentary. I've been following them since Remember Me, loved the game although it had it's shortcomings, but their art direction is wonderful.

    Sdarts Blizzard giving the original StarCraft for free is very generous of them. Weird to think Activision owns it, even though Blizzard has free reign. One of the best onwed by one of the worst. (20 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered's additions - more in the article - and the fact that Blizzard will make the original StarCraft free, and let players of the original play with those of the remastered is great. (22 minutes ago)

    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered out this summer: [url] 4K visuals, modern online play, LAN support with Blizzard Friends & Matchmaking. (25 minutes ago)

    Sdarts Those are mods and they will be available if/once the PC version comes out. (26 minutes ago)

    Sdarts @KORNdog: That's true. But I'm sure it will still sell a gazillion of copies. Specially if it ends up being as great as the first one. Also, very few Westerns, so people will love the "novelty". (27 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog although rocket powered horse racing with loop the loops, 1000ft jumps and corkscrews would be pretty entertaining. (28 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog the MP mode has tron cycles and trackmania style racing. i just can't see RDR having that sort of mass appeal unless they go ball to the wall crazy with the way they do things. (29 minutes ago)
