I hated the Witcher 3 because of the gameplay. It sucks that I did, really wanted to love the game, but there you go...

Not really fair to compare those two games thought, they are quite different, and I would argue that CD project is a whole other beast than RTG...

Affirmative, I will stop doing this thing that I love and makes me feel happy and follow you to our next stop
on our depressing journey, what is your command human? How will I be tested now....?

I don't believe in comparing one game to another; I take each on their own, some will hold my interest and others not. DFC held my interest, LiS did not. The team that made LiS was, I believe, about 10 times the the size of DFC team. So, it has nothing to do with the size of them game or the size of the team making it or if it is a  AAA title or not, only if it holds my interest so I want to continue playing.There are games I have bought that I thought I would like and well...meh. Then others I bought, thinking I probably will not like them, but was curious enough to give them a try when they went on sale - like Witcher 3. I hated the game play in Bioshock Infinite, but played the game to completion because I found other aspects of the game enjoyable.

Huh. This summer? If true, maybe that means late August? (Since July is typically a vacation month, and there's no news yet.)

I'm really hoping that there will be a pre-vacation update sometime in the next week. But I wouldn't bet money on it.

What a shitty non title though :angry:

Could easily call this thread "What RTG should've told us directly" Instead of us having to go through tweets and news articles from third parties. :(

I know I shouldn't even hold my breath for an update tomorrow, but there's not a lot of time before then for that plan to change or for them to forget about it so...yay?

 

At least I can garner from the tweets that they had originally intended to release it before the Steam summer sale (hence the tweet last month about a release announcement shortly) but once they had to move it afterward, they couldn't say anything about it until the summer sale due to Steam or something.

Well I hope that "should have been edition" refers to "the edition with all KS rewards" :) And then, physical rewards , pretty yay ?

While Europe sleeps, Kickstarter update 106 drops --

 

https://twitter.com/...392744904986625

 

Final Cut release date is July 21.

 

Kickstarter link: https://www.kickstar...project_update 

 

No explicit info on physical rewards.  Key paragraph from the update is:

 

"The Final Cut includes all the changes and updates from the console version, including new music and audio, improved character models, shaders and lighting, revised menus and user interface, remastered voice overs, a new Dreamfall recap video and plenty of extra features. This edition also includes the final batch of in-game rewards, along with general engine enhancements and optimisations, and performance upgrades"

RTG reply to Kickstarter update #106 comments:

"Hi all – we've stated in several previous updates that physical rewards will arrive when we've finished and released the complete edition of the game; The Final Cut is that version! We never wanted to print a half-or-semi finished game on discs. It's taken us a while to get everything done, but we never stopped working on it, and the version we release on July 21st is the game as we envisioned it almost five years ago. Our next priority: getting the physical rewards out to our backers!"

(Not sure how to provide a direct link to that comment, but here's the update: https://www.kickstar...roject_update )

I'm glad they said that, but the whole "as we've said several times..." tone feels a bit unfair considering we were told in one of the last updates that we'd be getting more information about all of that. :/

Also might just be a me thing, but I kinda wish they'd ease up on the "this is now actually the game we envisioned (unlike what you already played)" talk. :mellow:

I don't know, the differences aren't that big, are they? There's a bit of streamlining, some upgrading of the graphics, a few additions and removals. But it's mostly polish.
So I'm not really sure that our's was an inferior experience.

Well I haven't played it so I have no idea. :P

That's not what I'm saying and not the issue I'm having, though. I'm strictly talking about how the presentation feels, not what the changes may or may not be or how I may or may not feel once I can compare them.
