Exactly. No one is going go join Prime just for these game discounts.

Huh, I didn't know DF was doing a crowdfund for a Psychonauts sequel. I wonder why Tim decided to go with that crowdfunding service instead of Kickstarted as he used for Broken Age? I've never even heard of Fig. I'm surprised he has over $3mil already even though I found the original Psychonauts game entertaining.

I like the art style but it looks like there isn't much variation in the types of puzzles.

Yeah, I think they will have some games that come and go on sale. Looks like just the 'flash' sales are gone.

This looks like a mix between Ground Control and Homeworld which were two of my favorite RTS games so I'm definitely looking forward to this! I already have the Homeworld Remastered Collection so I get 20% off of the pre-order for this.

I hope they have more similar games in the works or at least in the planning stages.

Yeah, sometimes sellers will increase the base price before applying the discount so it sounds like a big sale. It sucks but many people fall for it because it can sound like a good sale when really it's not.

Edit: Seems others have noticed this too in this Blue's News article

I asked for a Steam refund already.

Sound issues right off the bat, could hear the female speaking, but males lips just moved with no sound. Half the controls would not work, check forums, countless complaints about the interface, gave up. No in-game option for changing FoV or turning off mouse acceleration? I don't care if you can turn it off by editing files *you actually have to edit 3 files each*, this is clearly a console port with not even one ounce of PC-centric effort.

Epic failure. Incredibly disappointing, have been playing Bethesda games since Arena: The Elder Scrolls.
This is one good reason why I like to wait for a few patches to be released before I start playing a new game.

I'll be eligible for a Surface Pro 4 or Surface Book. Can't wait. Beats the 6lbs POS HP from 2013 they gave me when I joined. Lugging it home sucks. Lugging a Surface home will be ridiculously easy. Or even unnecessary, as they'll finally let me virtual machine in with my desktop. Then I just need the Surface for travel.

Lucky you! My company wouldn't spend that much on a laptop for me. I recently got a Surface Pro 3 for myself and really like it. I did get the new keyboard cover and pen however.

Of course it doesn't replace my gaming rig but that's not what I bought it for.

Yeah, me too as I have 350 or so games on Steam..

The thing is that the ratings are just "like" or "hate". It just means that almost everyone thinks that the game is at least OK. It means it appeals to the lowest common denominator. It doesn't mean it's a better game.

The episodes average 85% (user score) on Metacritic so I'd say the positive reviews or "Likes" on Steam are pretty accurate.

How does A Machine for Pigs compare to The Dark Descent? I haven't played the sequel yet and wonder if it is just as good.

Interesting.. Walmart tried this and it didn't work too well. Of course they tried it in their HQ city of Bentonville which explains why it didn't get much business.

This is a bunch of lies. They are essentially using coal power but trade kW with wind utilities. So they paid some wind people off to make the claim but actually used coal power. Nothing more then playing hide the salami with the utilities. Just like 75% of household "recycling" goes to the dump. Oh crap there I go stating facts again....

Coal and wind? They built solar fields to power their facilities. At least for certain facilities..

Just check the official forums. There are (partially were after the patches) at least a dozen showstopper bugs that prevented any progress and dozens of gamebreaking bugs like the infamous stat bug, disappearing items or animal companions, invincible monsters, unlimited XP gain and all other sorts of seriously annoying crap.
That's not what he said, he said that he hasn't seen any showstoppers and neither have I before the patch was released. Sure some people run into bugs as with any game but how many of those actually affected you? Is it so bad you have to bitch about it? Just don't play it and ask for a refund instead if you don't like it. Seriously.
