    Also I would give my left nut for true PC versions of all the Halo games since 3.

    Alas Micro$oft wants everyone to worship the boxes under their TV's instead of the ones in their studies, on their laps, on the table on the train, in the office, in the school.... Derp

    So I've been on a bit of spending spree recently with Dishonoured, Borderlands 2, Torchlight 2 and such. They all felt like they were worth the full price but the one that wasn't on my radar at all as ended up being possibly my favourite game so far this year. X-com, just such a fun and sometimes highly frustrating but rewarding game, never have I cared so much for my little computer army mans/womans.

    I can see the headlines already. Hope they can pull this one off.

    2077? Wasn't it 2020? Or is that just not far enough in the future anymore?

    Well, from the "soncept art" one thing seems certain - it will be as pointlessly oversexualized as the Witcher and I won't bother with it.

    I am very interested, I enjoyed the W2 a lot. Nevertheless, I don't see why they need to present that woman(?) in her underwear on one of the first concept art shots...

    Agreed. I would believe them if they told me that character is there for a good reason, but making it the first image everyone is going to associate with the game is just stupid. My thoughts immidiately went to the dollhouse part of Neuromancer, but that doesn't save them really.

    I think CD are a bit preoccupied with this idea that their games are "mature". Of course sexual content has a place in mature games, but they emphasize it all the time, making it seem like the only thing they care about. It's definitely less mature than they think it is.

    Often fits with futuristic, cyberpunk society. Look at Transmetropolitan, Ghost in the Shell or even Blade Runner (and probably others which I have no familiarity with). The notion that sex is no longer much of a taboo is not a new one.
    For example, Blade Runner promo shots often featured the character Pris, who did not always dress like a nun:



    So would you judge the whole movie based on that?

    No, but to be fair, they already have a reputation for a lot of sexual content, some which is pretty silly. I don't mind it, but I can see why people would be apprehensive.

    If the screen says so, then yes they did. You'll see, the thing here is, if one of your units is shooting at a charging enemy units chances are you'll get some of your troops killed. Since most weapons on empire don't use a ballistic tajectory, that chance is even bigger.

    The Witcher 1 had a load of silly nudity in it, I won't argue that point. But it can be excused as it was their first game and they had a few immature attitudes. And (aside from a few creepy fans) no one thought well of it.

    There's also a number of things that never seem to register. In my game of Empire my Howitzers would carcass shot and explosive shot the everloving shit out of things - but for some reason they would never get the kills.
    Accidentally shooting your own men does happen a lot though.

    @ Casimir: You 're right but I never saw the point in sex in those works either. It doesn't bother me but I cannot see how it ties in. All I 'm saying is with the controversy over W1 and 2, releasing a concept art like that doesn't do their work any justice.

    On topic, last shots from Dishonoured (I hope someone makes a freecam mod soon):

    Sorry but that isn't the issue. The reason his screens look "good" is due to the singular fact that the forum automatically compresses the image and thus, making it appear far better than it actually is. Dishonoreds' textures are extremely low resolution and the models are very low poly, SweetFX altering the CSR isn't going to have an impact upon that.


    Right click and view image for the full resolution. It's an ugly game with textures Doom 3 would be ashamed of.

    "Lost" includes routed units which have been broken and desert.
