What about the remaster of the demake of the original remake?

That's coming after they reboot the series with a spinoff from the second remake.

 

(Night Dive please stop remaking System Shock games and just find a way to negotiate the rights to a digital release of the Westwood Blade Runner adventure game.)

I bought a pristine copy of that at a thrift store a couple years back for like $3. I'm too lazy to plug in a disc drive to install/troubleshoot it to work on Win10/play it, though.

There are some patches out there to help the game run on modern systems, but as of a few months ago it can be played with ScummVM. You'd just need to copy some files from each CD, as specified in the ScummVM wiki.

 

Get to it if you never played Blade Runner. It truly is an amazing game and one of the best point-and-clicks.

 

If a Blade Runner game were made today it'd probably be a battle royale set on Mars with each person playing as a replicant. :(

Someone on steamgifts reported might be dead now...

I miss NFS just being an arcade racing game with neat scenery.

More THQ Nordic news than we know what to do with:

  • Volition is deep into development of a new Saints Row game
  • DamBuster Studios (Homefront: The Revolution's dev's) is now working on Dead Island 2
  • TimeSplitters' co-creator Steve Ellis joined DamBuster Studios and will work on a new TimeSplitters game
  • Nordic acquired GunFire Games (makers of Darksiders 3)

That actually sounds like a game I would want to buy.  Oddly, blade runner is one of my favorite films but I never played the games.

I wouldn't hold out hope for Derp Island 2, that project has been passed off to three or four developers.

I would imagine they're just going to start from scratch

 

Deep Silver sounds like they were just absolute Fuck ups and THQ Nordic is fixing it

Also just read Borderlands 3 will be using Denuvo.  Take-Two/2K going full scorched earth policy on this one.  Maybe by the time it releases on Steam they'll remove Denuvo.  Probably not, though.

i'm surprised they went the denuvo route rather than make it online only, like the division or mmo's, cuz now they have an even bigger bullseye on their backs for groups to crack it asap. hope it doesn't become a shitshow like fallout 76 or anthem.

Considering its only releasing on Epic Denuvo being in the game makes perfect sense to me.

Let's keep in mind, when Borderlands 1 launched, nobody wanted Securom's Internet activation DRM; nobody wanted that crap either. Even the DLC's had it. Even on the Steam version (which gave it both Steam & Securom-required). At least Securom crap later got removed.

 

Why does every game need to go always online? I don't want my game's future to be stuck with always online, if it's still built for me to be able finish it solo-style.

 

We don't need another ARPG (and any other type of game, for that matter) to go always online like FO76, Diablo 3, ESO, The Division series, Destiny series to go always online - especially in games where previous titles didn't pull that crap (except Division and Destiny, as their series launched with always-online requirement). When nobody's playing the game on the servers anymore - this game's going to be a rental and a coaster, if they don't pull the always-online account-based DRM crap off their game.

 

At least the game (BL3) has on offline mode; and the DRM will likely get cracked by a 3rd party or hopefully they (2K and/or Gearbox) officially removed later (like they did w/ Borderlands 1).

 

Regardless, I ain't dropping big $ on this game. With likely DLC-City here; Denuvo DRM; all the shenanigans from 2K  & Gearbox over this game; my huge backlog; and still not finished BL2 DLC's and all of BL:TPS & its Season Pass - why should I drop $60 on this game?

Always online is more involved than anything I would ever trust Gearbox (or take2 with) and I think people would demand more...  Like PvP that gets reasonable balanced and that would in my mind destroy a lot of what makes BL so great.  A billion weapon combinations, overpowered character skills, etc.

SecuRom was on the retail version of BL1 but not the Steam version.  For whatever reason, it was also on the first DLC (Zombie Island), maybe the Moxxie DLC, but not on the General Knoxx DLC.  It was later removed from the Zombie DLC.

Thanks for the clarification.

 

I had BL1 base & First DLC Pack from retail; then got GOTY on Steam when it got dirt-cheap from Amazon Tony.

Would love to eventually see a Saints Row 2 remaster, especially given how much of a mess the PC port is.

welp I only earned 17/40 apparel caches from Divsion 2's Heat Wave event.  Someone at microcenter told me it started on July 30 so I was a week late getting started on them.  Only played a couple times on each of the final two weeks.  They rejiggered things this time around too so that you only get an event cache key once out of every three player levels.   On previous events it used to be that I'd get two keys every three levels, or one key every two levels at the worst.  You only get 4 keys from each weekly project so they made it much more time consuming to get all 40 apparel cache keys this time around.  I didn't have it in me to try and farm them all.  How about you guys?

I installed Derpvision after getting it for free but haven't even launched it once.  Bleh.

 

In other news, a couple of deals from one of my favorite developers grabbed my attention:

 

Ys VIII is a doing a free weekend.  I played it some on console but decided I really needed better performance to enjoy the arpg.  This ended up being a bad decision since the NISA pc port was butchered at launch and the game has been / still is way too expensive.  But I guess it's a good time for me to check in to see if it's still broken or if they managed to make it playable.

 

Tokyo Xanadu eX+ is $9 on fanatical.  Solid game..  it's like taking the arpg gameplay from Ys, putting it in self-contained dungeon areas, and connecting them with a world and social context similar to something found in Trails of Cold Steel  (though in a modern Tokyo setting with paranormal anime nonsense). This one has English subtitles only.

That's exactly what I liked about SR4.

 

And for that matter, most of the series in general.

 

I never played the original SR (never hit the PC), but SR2 felt like an over-the-top GTA game.

 

SR3 got...even more so ridiculous, over-the-top, and even further into the world of parody & jokes - even further and into the direction GTA would never go (especially as GTA was getting more realistic with GTA4). For me, I think this is where it really found its identity.

 

SR4...abandoned even more rules. As if SR3 couldn't be any more over-the-top, enter SR4. It took things even further & entirely into another land and galaxy...and into the Matrix basically; and also into Superhero-type of direction - i.e. Prototype 1+2.

Agreed completely.  When you just go full-overboard super powers, the lack of a challenge makes it dull.
