It's still uncertain if there will be a console port, right?

That is surprising: the highest difficulty means that you only have 1 life. That's brutal. Dead at, let's say 75% of the story and you have to restart. Good luck with that.

Namco? I see Atari is publisher, CD Projekt is developer, where's the Namco coming for? :O

What's the point then? Why not just play on an easier difficulty level? Hardcore difficulty was always way too nuts for me. There's no way I'm putting dozens of hours into a character and then losing it forever.

Bought part 1 from Steam a few weeks ago and going to play that when I get time. This game looks better and better every time I see it

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (13 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (13 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (14 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (14 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (14 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (15 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (15 Hours ago)
