Wow did you guys see the size of that thing!? (ahahahah twss)

6.7GB, holy shit. Then again, since this is the patch where they gimp the entire map, after having already gimped the lighting system, it makes sense that it'd be so big.

For those who played it in the first week, remember how it looked. You likely won't see it look that way again.

Umm, why do they need another kickstarter? Didn't they make any money from the first game?
Yep, I wondered this too. I guess horkers and blow ain't cheap/

It always cost quite a few septims to buy a horker in Winterhold...

I'll be in for 50. I thought the original was fun, that Dragonfall was fantastic, and the Dragonfall Director's Cut was incredible. More Shadowrun? Yes, please.

introducing another character and telling parts of the story from her perspective would greatly benefit the overall experience

If the character changes are mandatory, usually it does the exact opposite. It just makes people irritated that they have to go from one character with skills X, Y, Z to a new one with skills A, B, C, different items, etc.

So please, for the love of God, make this an OPTIONAL feature. I've played 150 hours as Geralt. I want to finish the story as Geralt, not as an ashen-haired girl from an ancient prophecy.

Edit: Holy shit, spelling hard.

We are committed to delivering major performance improvements, which requires that we refurbish the Paris map

Expect to see a pretty serious 'nerf' to the map. They already fubar'ed the lighting system for performance reasons, so the map is apparently next.

I'm SO glad I didn't buy this.

The fact that you consider Wasteland 2 "simple" or "half-arsed" is downright absurd. There's nothing simple about it.

Except, you know, the combat, which is a majority of the game.

I didn't mind so much that the combat was simple, but there was way too much of it for how simple it was, and nowhere nearly enough cleverly planned encounters (such as when the robots ambush your base in the plant in California ; that was a really well-executed combat. It was tough to survive, forced you to make some tactical choices, and it was fun to play.)

And then there was the weird disconnect between skill levels. I'd basically maxed out my combat skills by the time I went to Cali, which made all the combat there just a boring attrition slog of watching numbers dwindle until Yet Another Robot with 400 health had died, but at the same time all my usage skills that were at level 6-8 become completely useless since every single skill check in California was blatantly level 10 or higher.

I finally gave up playing it in Hollywood. Keep meaning to go back, but really have no desire to.

All that said, I think they delivered a great game for their Kickstarter budget.

I'm typically pretty opposed to censorship (unless it's against shit like child porn), but that doesn't mean I'm going to vote for your utterly pointless and utterly childish game, Polish neo-nazis.

Pai's sudden interest in the fairness of Netflix's CDN is curious coming from a Commissioner that was formerly employed by Verizon, is opposed to net neutrality rules, frequently absent in conversations about the sector's lack of competition, and an avid supporter of industry consolidation.

And long overdue being hit by a fucking bus.

If Josh burns out, I hope he just puts a "fly mode" into his engine so I can spawn a ship and just fly around and look at all the pretty stuff he's made.

That said, several people (harlock foremost) have been saying that it looks like he's not going to get enough content in here to really make it a game, and more and more it seems like that will indeed be the case. He's obviously an engine / tools guy, not a content guy. This is why games are no longer made by four people in their garage.

Even so, I feel I've already long since gotten my 20 bucks worth out of the videos he's made, because by God are some of those planets / nebulae / etc beautiful.

Been enjoying Far Cry 4 it's a lot like 3 with some great improvements & some bad decision making as well. Not a bad game though. The bad guy in this one is really charismatic & the acting is very good.
Troy Baker IS pretty fantastic. I just wish studios would stop having him use his normal tough guy protagonist voice less, and let him branch out more like he's done in FC4, Batman (Joker) and Shadow of Mordor

Didn't Troy Baker do Joel in Last of Us as well? He was fantastic there too. Definitely knocking on Nolan's door.

Speaking of Christmas, I finally got around to doing all of my shopping yesterday, but most of it was done through Blue's Amazon links. With a sound bar system, a nice dutch oven, a new HDD, an iPad, and some other junk, it came out to a pretty hefty bill. Hopefully Amazon throws some nickels at you Blue!

Awesome, toT.

News Comments > Steam Holiday Auction Resumes
7. Re: Steam Holiday Auction Resumes Dec 12, 2014, 22:08 Creston
 
So you have the chance to sell cards for gems, and with those gems bid on games, and you have to win the auction to actually get said game.

Alternatively, you can just sell your cards, and with the money, buy the actual game you want. What is it with people getting all fucking excited if points/gems/whatever gets put in as the middle man?

I think the whole trading cards thing is retarded, but when I have a few minutes of boredom at work, I go into my inventory, sell every card I have for the current price, and at the end of it I have like 5 or 6 bucks that automatically gets applied as a discount on whatever I buy on Steam next. If I couldn't do it at work, I wouldn't even bother with it, as it's definitely not worth all my free time if I had to do it at my slow-ass home connection.

This auction thing is just such a weird fucking extra step. I think Valve is just going "Let's see what other stupid thing we can get people to participate in."

So, I hear some of you are kicking yourselves for bitching at me when I said I wanted to make FS3 few years back?

Heh. The thing isn't, Derek, that we don't want FS3 to be made. It's that there's little trust that you would do it justice. You've made interesting games, to be sure, and I'll leave aside the whole broohaha about how broken they are that always follows them, but they also tend to be a bit of a "all that and the kitchen sink too!" variety. Kinda like SC, really.

FS, as you well know, is nothing like that. It's about the pure, smooth-as-silk art of dogfighting in space, and the sheer mind-blowing awe you feel when you first see just how fucking BIG those enemy cap ships are. Without it, it wouldn't be FS. And people just don't think you can deliver on that.

In any case, like I already said before, why bother with the IP? It's the most generic sci-fi tripe imaginable. Write some new fiction, make FS3, call it "Free in Space" and blammo.

I may just pick up both FFXIII and XIII-2 on the PC when they're on sale, and play them on PC then. My PS3 is getting pretty long in the tooth.

Thanks all.
