Sword Coast Legends is launching on Mac and Linux as well

    
19

Good news for Sword Coast Legends fans who are hoping to play with their friends of “other” persuasions: n-Space has announced that the game will be coming to Mac and Linux as well as PC.

Director Dan Tudge says that this decision will benefit the community as a whole: “For far too long, passionate and dedicated Mac and Linux RPG gamers have been left out in the cold, forced to watch from the sidelines as the industry focused efforts on just a select few platforms. That ends today.”

The beauty of this move is that Sword Coast Legends supports cross-platform play, allowing gamers to hook up no matter what OS they use. The team is also allowing Steam keys to be redeemable for any of the platform versions.

I feel I wanted to come back and substantiate this, more. Sometimes I ramble, and people might think I’m messing with them. No. Not this time.

He really is a massive jerk, Avellone. He’s done more to ruin the Fallout Universe than anyone else, single-handedly, not only because he has a massive ego, but also because he has controlling, sociopathic, manipulative tendencies. That interview contains an instance of him ruining someone’s life just because they thought he was being a sociopath and mocking his employers in the game he was working on. The thing is? The QA guy was probably right.
Avellone’s just not a nice person. Not even remotely. He’s also not a particularly good writer (he was responsible for there being so much And and AND and this and THIS and this AND THIS and this in Pillars of Eternity, his use of and to create infinite sentences drives me up the wall). I just wish Obsidian and he would part ways. That’s the thing with me, I can’t say something in passing without substantiating it.
And yes, that is Avellone. I can tell because he makes exactly the same kinds of spelling mistakes there that he does in every interview (not a hallmark of a great writer).
I just really, really don’t like him. I’m passionate about this because I think he brings down Obsidian with him. And he’s left a toxic mark on the Internet by having a sociopathic fan club who’re almost every bit as bad as he is (as you can see from the “interview” itself).

Oh, and the ruining of the Fallout Universe, that too.
So whilst I praise Obsidian, I can’t praise him. I tend to be super-critical of what he does because he’s a Cult of Popularity figurehead, he’s not a writer, he’s not talented or imaginative, he’s just a smug arse that no one should like. And yet people do. People love their sociopaths. It’s like Hollywood, really, people love Hollywood sociopaths, too, for reasons I’ll never understand. It seems to thrill people, for reasons I’ll never understand.
It’s one of the things I don’t like about this world. It’s hard for nice people to get by, but sociopaths like Avellone get a cult and end up being bought by every RPG out there to write bits for them.
Screwed up world.

I may be wrong about this since haven’t been paying that close attention to the W10 stuff so far, but my understanding was not that you’d be able to play One games on W10, but rather that you would be able to stream games from a One to a pc running W10. Basically something like Steam in home streaming. 
Some One games are going to get exclusive ports to W10 though, like that asymmetric Fable game.

Nreff It had a baby… Android… and it watches from the sidelines (web servers) as a proud parent, realizing its own time as a possible consumer product has come and gone.   Android has obliterated any notion of Linux becoming a consumer desktop OS.

Koshelkin I can think of some good games that work on Mac but when I try to think of an MMO that works on Windows AND Mac AND Linux, the only title that comes to mind is Second Life.

mac users already enjoying GW2 and STO look up perplexed…  “it ends today?”    ;-)

See this, this I think I could play and enjoy.

A lot of fantasy rpg games (especially D&D-based games) end up feeling bloated to me — too many elements trying to go in all directions at once.

At first glance, this one looks like it’s going somewhere I can follow: a diverse D&D party of characters roaming the wilds.

Full dislosure: probably my favorite D&D-like game to this day remains the _original_ Dungeon Siege (not the in-name-only modern remake), so factor that in to what I’m saying, of course. :-) I see similarities here.

My opinions only, of course.

dirtyklingon Hmm, I don’t know about that phone thing. Since Shadowrun and XCom runs on a phone. Though Valve loves to push their love for Linux and Steam OS down people’s throats.

I’m torn on this. Might be great, might be meh, might be anything in between. Not much faith in a Fantasy game from Bioware.
