Love the positivity.

Put Connerys chest hair in Panzer Corps 2 and it will suck less than Daniel Craig.

What do you say, Craig is great :) , however my favorite Bond was Roger Moore and the favorite movie is "The Man with the Golden Gun" (1974), where Christopher Lee played black character, the best pay murderer in the world named Scaramanga 8) :lol: (he had such funny small man in bowler hat as a helper in his evil business :mrgreen: )

Great at what?
Would rather see Daniel play Panzer Corps than playing bond. Similar level of mild amusement probably.

Nicknack, his butler... made little people seem creepy. :(

The phenomenon of Fortnight has always existed for me. There was a children's sports section in front of me, and then I listened to their conversations in the locker room, and you won’t believe they absolutely all play Fortnights hats off to "Epic Games". This is a total capture of the market.
An example is clear?

Get your point. Good example of one to own.

It's about the mix.
About a year ago I came up with a hex strategy concept, that could be described as a panzer general core engine combined with game mechanics out of games like hearthstone and a reward system known of role playing games. The setting was supposed to be a darker urban crisis reality (mad max is not that far off) primarily multiplayer focus with a default tourney mode that restarts after the last guy dominates the territory + a secret ingredient to grab attention similar to pokemon go.

The idea was not a game in the sense of x or y, but to take a game concept and position it in a way that is easy to market, easy to get into and rewarding to stay. A new step in evolution of the whole genre that retakes the market share it deserves.


That's what you have in mind, right?
Not just doing old in a new way, but knocking it out of the park.
People today are so saturated and grounded, very rarely the stars allign for anything really good to happen, let alone something great.
Signs of the times.

Cheers

I will throw my 2 cents in and say this, panzer general 2 was a great game but when ssi made panzer general 3 and went 3d....it was a train wreck, they went to far from the true roots of what made 2 so special, I have seen most of screen shots and they look promising, one beef I have with it is the size of the unit icons but other than that it looks good. I just hope pc2 turns out twice as good as the first.

Actually funny how many people prejudge things.

Secondly even when game comes out no point judging as can take few patches before things finally shape. With modern age of DLC's even year or 2 before final produce settles down to final build.

Take look at Pillars of eternity game doesn't play same as when released and the added content really helped to make the game a success.

seems most people just like to have a moan, either because it's not out, or something minor has or hasn't been added to there taste, now days developer have to have thick skins and tbh i also agree with the last post, most games aren't perfect when they first come out and mature as there improved and patched over time, with feedback and more comments, idea's and time,...

I agree with zakblood and Stephen1024. Maybe more frequent information updates/dev diaries could help manage the concerns/prejudgements... i.e. if you don't tell an official story, a "story" will always be told, and even if it is just a premature and prejudging negative one like this one...

i agree with the author of the topic.

Panzer corps 2 will be just a remake of panzer corps 1 : the same gameplay (with some improvements).

A new gameplay or a new way of playing could have been proposed .

For example, in blitzrieg 3 ,they have introduced a persistant world with a persistant core army which can be improved by making some (hard) objectives.( of course, number of core units is limited for each scenario ) .Why not the same idea in panzer corps 2?

or another example, the possibility to unlock "cards" by succeding some achievement. just the fun of collecting all the cards of the game. (cards could be proposed and made by players with the editor)

what a pity, panzer corps 2 will just offer some campaigns (same than panzer corps 1 ) , the same multiplayer option and ... that's it.

"A Pity!!!",,,What "A Pity-Indeedie!"...

,,,That the doubting/disbeliever's continue to show 'No-Faith!'. This...then seem's to be the 'Axiom' that they religiously live by:

"Repeatus Un-interruptus...Ad'-Infinitum...Ad'-Nauseaum!".

For the rest of us however!...we live in an alternative path...something like this phrase...

..."Per Ardua' Ad' Astra!". ...or Translated loosely...something to the effect...as... "From the Earth to the Stars!!!". We therefore have 'High-Hopes', and our 'Mantra' is instead of the 'steadfast belief' of... "Never Give Up...Never Surrender!".

i have not understood your message but i see you want to use the fact that i m not english and you are playing with the words i used. For me, what a pity = sadness or = what a mess .

sorry for my bad english.
