LOVE the art style, not impressed by what they have shown gameplay wise so far, especially when all they talk about is graphics / ant base / and what they ripped from my favorite game to give there game some sort atmosphere

and taken away multiple bases was LAME, shows how much shallower this game will be in terms of gameplay, losing a base in original, put that more pressure on you and , it was great to instead of being game over you had multiple bases to fall back on giving that more open ended gameplay, what i feel this game is going to lack

Absolutely enthralled by this game. Never played the old games but I wish I did back in the day because I could totally see the old installments being in my favorite games of all time. I mean a turn based alien invasion... it doesn't get better than that.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth SFV should perform nicely. the beta's fan at a stable 60fps w/all max settings, ofc it's not as complex graphically as xcom2, but atleast i can play it properly. (28 minutes ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg @Melmoth: Weird that they can mess up so much when they have already developed two games in UE3. Maybe 3.5 is wildly different but i doubt it. (34 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Melmoth: I dunno man.. the competitive FPS heritage of today goes back to the 90s.. that's all I'm saying.. fighters too (36 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth even the post-processing AA they use (FXAA) has a big performance hit, which it shouldn't (40 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth something is very off with the performance, like how SSAO has a huge performance impact compared to other games. maybe their heavily modded UE3.5 that's the problem. (44 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth mouse-edge-scrolling, while it stutters like hell when using WASD to pan the camera. atleast that should be fixable. (47 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @asdfg: i've put it away for now to see if they patch up things abit. i'm getting really jerky framerates even in 1080p. Some things are just bugs, like how the camera is much smoother when using.. (48 minutes ago)
