Sure the car controls are clunky, but jesus christ it's just a better version of Sacrifice with a heavy metal skin, it's fucking great.

Can we just have a thread about it? Is the multiplayer still alive?

Keep playing, it goes to shit when more focus is put into the RTS mechanics later on.

>>323281056
I didn't drop it. The RTS elements are a huge schizophrenic tone shift, and the mechanics are fairly half-assed and probably triggered you actually RTS autists, but it's still a 6/10 game. Not unplayable, even enjoyable if you're invested in the story.

You make wave after of wave of uncontrollable allies and throw them to the grinder in hopes they can destroy the shield tower / generator / goal.

Not that anon but honestly no. Its not horrible but its still bad and will likely ruin the game unless you are in love with the game's atmosphere and setting. If you do then it wont be as bad and you can still enjoy the game alot cause its not a huge section of the game.

Although maybe it didnt bother me so much because I hadn't really played many rts's when I first played this game.

m8, m8, I love the voice acting and atmosphere and art direction as much as the next guy, but it's not even in the top 20, it's in the same vein as dawn of war. Great fun, but zero strategy, just spam units, spray and pray.

This fucking game made me a metalhead.
I have now a metalhead girlfriend, i play in a band and i have my own place, filled with guitars and shit.
I have no idea what happened.

The RTS elements aren't great but they're definitely bearable. Not nearly as bad as everyone makes them out to be. I enjoyed it at least, I just wish the game wasn't so fucking short. It had a lot of potential and it did a lot with the amount it had, but it just left me wanting more.

>>323281504
Jack Black wasn't even that bad. I don't know why people don't like him, he's an alright guy. He's super passionate about this kind of thing, I think that's what made him a lot more enjoyable as Eddie.

What's so bad about Jack Black? He's a decent but one note actor, and a breddy gud singer. Tenacious D is a little cringe worthy but there are more than enough good tracks to compensate.

Honestly, the worst shit he's been in is all those kid friendly movies he was in, but that was like, a decade ago.

One of my black friends was not into metal at all before this, super stereotypical black dude. After that he was a huge metalhead. Something about this game's atmosphere was just done so damn perfectly.

Yeah, because it will never be finished.

Don't get me wrong, I'm one of the people waiting for Psychonauts 2 for years and I always liked Schafer.
Right now, however, I don't get how he manages to get still get money for P2. Why do people still trust him?

I knew a guy like that once. Total opposite of a wigger, the guy loved nordic shit and drew runes in his notebook and everything. Him and all the dorky white kids that were into hip hop (which I was one of) would get really mad about our tastes in music but then everything would be chill when we went to play some weeb vidya.

Cool guy, nasty fucking dreads, though.

Why the hell did this game have to be open world and had to have an RTS mechanic?

It should have been an action platforming game with a hub area, similar to Banjo Kazooie and Super Mario 64.
The hub could have been his apartment where you can gather and collect shit and the tv can serve as a portal to different realms.
>Industrial metal world, Death metal world etc.

What a lost opportunity

Oh shit nigger I didn't even know there was a PC version. Time to download that shit and replay the game.

It's been really slow this time however, people are aware, it shouldn't make much more.

It's tons of fun and the soundtrack is great. It's only issue if it tries to be some many things that it performs sub-par at all of them.

Yeah, I actually felt similarly about it, it was surprisingly emotional for a game that didn't really focus too much on its character relationships.

The goths in general were a good way to progress it I thought, but the final enemy wasn't really based off any particular subgenre as far as I can tell, not that was given reference to at least.

It felt like the whole second half was rushed though, it started with this sweet buildup, then you got your army and like 5 battles latter the entire game is done. Was still fun collecting shit though, and all the cameos were done pretty well.

This is precisely why people say it's mediocre, even the people coming to the game not just fully knowing that it turns into a strat at the 30% marker but also enjoy strats can't fucking stand that shit
>>
>>323281647
That's because it didn't go ass in hand retarded with how it handled the RTS shit.
Pikmin is also technically an RTS and look how great that shit handles. It's all blobby but still great.

Is the RTS in this game actually bad or is it like Dragon Commander and Space Rangers 2 where it's okay but casuals can't handle it?
>>
>>323286462
It's neither really. It's not terrible, it's just mediocre really. The issue is that it's a massive step down from the quality of the rest of the game.

It's definitely not hard though, not until maybe the very end, where it suffers from the issue a lot of RTS games have where literally everything the enemy has is by far better than your stuff.

There is a reason why everyone uses autoresolve after two or three fights.
