It's a risk when you use mods that you have to be fully willing to take and especially in a early access game and i'll deal with it but seriously i don't think it's unreasonable at all for like the 30 people who have simply asked for an update on status to get an answer after two weeks. Like i said my main thing is that IF it is abandoned then someone else can pick it up. As i'm sure someone would. It's a popular mod.

I talked about it with my brother earlier tonight who DOES mod and he still answers people in a timely manner for mods he's done two years ago and has no intention of updating anymore. No modder owes an update to anyone, they're free to abandon when they please, but just a reply is basic manners. It's not like they've not seen them. It's literally 2 minutes of their time so people know what to expect. I don't call that entitlement in my world.

try to figure out how to update it yourself! if you care enough to wait for a response you can probably muster the tenacity for some trial+error / google / askin ur bro - based learnin and you'll at the very least come out the other side with some new skills, even if it doesnt work

I just wish it was a pure combat grind game, because the combat is superb. the presentation, writing, etc. just leaves me cold.

As with every game, I pretty much skipped through most dialogue/story.
The combat and interaction with the world are everything.

I get that modders don't owe anyone anything but if nothing else i feel that a responsible modder that has a couple thousand people subbed to their mod should at the very least bother telling subscribers they've abandoned it and offer to have someone else take it over. It's like two pages of comments in the past 2 weeks politely asking if they'll update it and zero answer and MOTHERFUCKER I CAN SEE YOU'RE IN A GAME RIGHT NOW.

god im so sorry that someone who has delivered free content to you at the cost of probably dozens or hundreds of hours of their own labor for no material gain on their part doesn't respond to comments in a timely manner

It's literally 2 minutes of their time so people know what to expect. I don't call that entitlement in my world.

it isn't two minutes of their time. responding takes time, because coming up with a timeline takes time, because figuring out what you need to fix takes time, because figuring out what broke takes time, because going through the source takes time. sometimes people really don't know whether they're abandoned a project or not because they haven't had the breathing room to sit down and look at their project in weeks. and if you give a misleading or incorrect answer to someone commenting, all of a sudden you pick up the reputation of being a "lying dev" because your user base is full of selfish, entitled people

honestly, even if it DID take two minutes, it'd still be ridiculous to get mad at them for spending their free time on something besides the mod. if you don't want your game to break, don't use mods, or as pablito said learn to fix it yourself. sitting on your ass and demanding timely free labor from someone that you haven't recompensed in any way is spoiled and infantile

most of my urge to play firewatch comes from wanting to see what chairkicker loathes about it, but I'm still gonna wait for a deep discount

it's just so damned on rails for a game that promised to be something of a metroid esque first person graphical adventure in the forest. and while some of the character interplay is fresh, so much of it is the most cloying shit. which i guess explains its popularity? and the story it tells through that lens is equally cloying

it's a bad twee walking sim ill never touch again

I realized I've had Endless Space for the longest time and never gave it a fair shake. Does anyone have any good things to say about it? I've seen it called '[one of] the best space 4X games made' so I feel like I've been sleepin on it

Edit: I simply couldn't get into Endless Legend and that gets similar praise so I might just be a no-fun idiot
