Poony4u always has a positive spin. May be too easy going, but he’s right. It’s a good pass, and the value is probably the same as the last one or two, I think.
They really haven’t gotten a standard hammered out yet, and that’s probably my only legitimate beef with this new system; WTF is it already? It looks pretty professional…right up until the end. Then, its common sense seems to peter out and it’s got all these crates and lighters with no real goods, over and over, and who knows how many lighters? It’s still not real clear, despite their added effort to clarify that. So the next one will probably be a little different in this regard again. Maybe they’ll get it right next time.
I wish they’d get their ship into shape, and just develop a system already, and then do that. Their planning needs help and more foresight, I think, but I don’t know what they go through at work to get this stuff done. It could be miraculous that any of this stuff gets done at all with the global attitude towards Russia being what it is…
Anyway, just focus on the legs. It’ll be OK. I’ll be in it just for that, but there’s plenty of gravy in there besides that. Plenty. It might end in a sloppy way, it’s hella long, and some of this update looks rushed, and maybe it’s not really finished. They might be planning some patches as we speak. It needs a couple, I think.
The new map is nice. I hope there are more biggish ones like this. The multi-level terrain is good. It’s not too cluttered, and it’s often sporting a beautiful sky and horizon. I like it.
I don’t think this is a bad update worthy of my lamentations. Instead I think it is a reasonably priced BP, bringing us one of the coolest features to grace this game in a while (the legs, of course), cool and useful structure parts (those pass-through parts), nice cosmetics (love the paints, stickers, and lights), and a very nice map to compliment it…and a lot of other BS I don’t care about, like the new GUI, and the ridiculous gun. I have mixed feelings about that stuff. Mostly I don’t care. I’ll get my money out of the other stuff.
I’m struggling not to go out and buy some of those legs right now, but I’m going to be patient and just follow the Road to Singularity on the short bus for just $9.99.
