I really hope they managed/will still manage to get Roger Raines on board.........   :unsure:

 

Yeah...Same. I'm going to have trouble getting used to anyone else...but if they didn't/couldn't, I'd understand. :/ I've got to imagine it's pretty difficult to track certain people down after this many years. And with a character like Crow, I expect that if they did have to recast, they wouldn't take it lightly and would really try to get someone they feel captures the spirit of the character. 

 

Oh man, I'm so looking forward to visit Marcuria now (not that I wasn't before), so beautiful :D

 

And yeah, it seems like life in Europolis is getting really really bad :wacko:

 

Well...I mean. Cyberpunk dystopias generally don't tend to get better. At least not before they've gotten much, much worse. 

 

Re: Marcuria - I'm excited, too. Especially since it sounds like we'll get to see more of it than ever before. (Based on what we've seen and what they said on Twitter.) 

 

In the "Marcuria skyline" picture the caption reads:

 

"Cloudships drift silently above the streets of Marcuria, keeping an eye on the activities of the denizens of Oldtown - now known as the 'magic ghetto'"

 

Was that intended? It's kind of obvious the EYE and the Azadi are connected somehow. They're actually acting alike one at each side of the divide.

 

Yeah, I definitely think that's intended. I mean, the worlds have always been two halves of one whole, but based on the little stuff we've seen so far, the parallels seem quite intentional. 

 

I mean. We now have goat confirmation in both worlds. What more do we need? ;)

If at first you don't succeed, do it like your mother told you.

The Souk/Shuk market area. 

 

Edit: Figured I'd update with a link to a screen shot from the wiki (thanks V!). Goats. Bionic goats.

I don't think there's a person in there, it's just the way the light reflects on it.

 

It definitely looks like a silhouette. A reflection of some kind. I can't make the person inside though. Resolution isn't enough for me to get it.

May not even be a silhouette of a person....

The resemblance is uncanny. ;)

 

Though not to shit on theories, but I think it's more likely that the bright dot is a reflection. The darker upper area is a shadow cast by her eyelid. The dark central bit is her pupil (likely contracted in fear) and the lighter colored lower area is her normal iris without the shadow being cast on it.

The expression on Zoe's face in the last picture would definitely be consistent with the reflection in her eye of the Prophet or someone else. The expression could also show recognition besides surprise..

Kari2: My thoughts exactly!

 

There's definitely a hooded man reflecting from her eye.

The structure seems consistent with photography of of the prophet from Dreamfall (The dream thief?)

 

Hey RTG, can you share this image at higher res?  :P

Spoiler

No way is saga going to draw something so primitive.

She's a very talented baby!

"announcing a release date too far in advance means that we might have to either release something we're not one hundred percent happy with, or announce a delay — and both of those options are less than ideal." - Or you can announce an estimated release date, which is subject to change, and simply ignore the trolls ranting about the occasional delays...

They could...But there really isn't a huge benefit to announcing a tentative release date at this point. Fans want it, sure, but it's unlikely to have an impact on sales, so I can respect them not wanting to have to play the "Just kidding, it's actually going to be another few weeks" game. Especially in light of backlash against buggy releases for other games, etc. 

 

Add in the fact that even without announcing a tentative release date, some press seems hellbent on claiming that they've set one... It just seems like way more trouble than it's worth.

And what exactly is the imperative to announce a date more specific than we already have. Are people going to rearrange their lives based on the lauch date? Seriously? Is it going to cause deaths, or save lives?

 

I get the idea that we need some kind of date: the first half of 2015, perhaps even as narrow as the first quarter of 2015, but I don't think it needs to be any narrower.

I thought imagining shapes where they're not was my thing, what with all the time spent pretending being incapable of leaving my crib... But you people have brought it to a whole new level. 

 

Amen to that.
