Still wondering what the point of ESO was to begin with. Did it offer ANYTHING that wasn't in the other 2 billion fantasy-themed MMO's out there?
It is sort of cool to see all the areas of Tamriel developed on a modern engine. To be honest despite it's flaws, the developer did a better job than Bethesda on quests and level designs, also the main story isn't bad by any means.

Beyond Skyrim may be raising the level. Video interview here.

Thanks, I sort of thought the whole $15 a month was some corporate delusion, but wasn't sure if I had missed something.

It's not a terrible game, I played it for a few months. It was something to do, while waited for more interesting games to be released. I stopped when they released the game on Steam but refused to let game owners post in the forums, much less give us our Steam key. In their deluded minds, we had to buy the game again to post on ESO Steam forums.

Just finished Valiant Hearts the other night. It was an excellent tale, but damn, was it depressing! We forget what an insane clusterfuck WWI was.
Thanks for the tip, I don't mind heavy, as long as it's a good game and design.

I completed This War of Mine but was disappointed with one of the game designs. Afaik, it's based on the Bosnian war, where Serbian forces were committing Genocide, Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes. In the game, some places you can kill the army if they attack or going to attack you. In other places, even though the army is obviously evil if you kill them even after them shooting you first, the game calls you a murderer. It made me stop playing the game.

Some boneheaded suits with visions of sugarplums - and WoW like numbers of monthly subscribers - in their heads no doubt, because no one else was clamoring for one. Mebbe some kind of co-op/MP function, but not an MMO.
Exactly, all the fans asked for was Coop.

Does anyone know why, mmog publishers are obsessed with $15 US a month? Publishers are willing to let mmogs fail, rather than for instance charge $10 US a month.

eRe4s3r, in a way your making the case against yourself. By pointing out they all belong to the same organization yet they have one of the, if not the best list of GOTY awards I've seen so far. So your saying hey look, it must be corrupt cause they are all in a club, yet the club by action has done the best work.

I do agree, there could be a category about Indie only, yet they do cover many indies in the list.

I'd surprised if they actually sell any mafia II games at retail. It's not like 2k to sell a 5 year old game, ridiculously for $40 US.

That's more of a reflection of the flood of indie games on the market and the world economy being in the tank, not Steam's lack of popularity.

Yeah, to bad dayz doesn't do anything productive such as adding a Coop switch to servers. Instead it's nothing but a gankfest.

Fion, you might want to read some tips on what character to start with or what to build first, it can be a little overwhelming.

There seems to be a bug, where all the Friends list log offs are the same. I.e. atm all my Friends list looks like they all logged off at the same time 3 hours ago.
It's based on the time you connect to the Steam Community. That means if there's an outage, and there frequently is, that it resets all the times. Valve really needs to improve the reliability of the Steam Community - I can't tell you how many times I've been kicked out of games that depend on it for multiplayer.
Thanks appreciate the info, yeah bet that does suck for multiplayer.

Thought about buying XIII, since it's on sale atm for $8 US. Then I read a review, mentioning it's not really open world or interactive, with basically no side quests at all. Apparently it's just a very linear story and a lot of combat. Hahaha_no

Yeah, nothing from Steam and I think this is the worst holiday Steam sale I've ever seen. How can they possibly get all the publishers and developers sales, with basically 12 sales a day.

Sure there are 6k+ titles on sale, but from all accounts shopping/turnout is very low this year. So if some dev or pub realizes their game isn't selling at 25% off, how the hell are going to do anything about it. The Flash sales must all be frozen and set in stone before the sale begins.

End of year sale on Origin. Save up to 95% (Battlefield 3 for $0.99).

Finally a BF game that is selling at the correct price point....
Lmao

Naturally they still haven't put ME2 dlc (or BioWare Points) on sale (even on Amazon), after 4 freaking years! What a bunch of jackbasses!

Keep hoping to see Tron 2 on sale for 75% off, since it was made in 2003. However it just made it to Steam recently, so disney might try to hold off at 50% for about a year.

I wouldn't be so picky about getting some of these games on Steam at 75% off, if I didn't own them from release. Well the world economy is still shitty too, which effects everyone like it or not.

I just saw Never Alone, it does look pretty amazing. Just the fact it's about Inuit (if I'm reading it correctly) legends and cultures peaks my interest. Not to mention all the freaking awards it seems to be getting.
