Are the early access games you're looking at self published? Then there's your answer as to why early access exists.
Pretty sure, he means, they should be listed separately, not with completed games.

State of Decay? Yes? No? Maybe? A lot of the reviews seem to hit on that it gets repetitive quick. The first 4 hours building your base and getting essenials is fun, after that it quickly becomes pure grind though. Thoughts?
I was reading a review there on the sales page, a guy has 216 hours but doesn't recommend it. Lol, if I get 216 hours of gameplay out of game for $10 it's a steal.

I agree, it's a lot of fun but it can get repetitive, unless you know only worry about a few missions and ignore the rest. I wanted to build up my base before worrying about any of the main story questlines. My biggest problem is no Editor, since fans could probably fix this into one great game.

I've got a real problem with constantly spam spawning mobs, so this next part is going to sound like I'm irritated with some parts, cause I am!
The big problem (i'm not sure if they will fix it) is the constant Spawning Spam. You really can't even explore in this openworld game cause everywhere you go, they constantly spawn shit. The sound meter is crap, in the sense that the radius you see of noise for the weapon in use, spawns shit much farther out. There's balancing issues, since you've got weight limits, weapon wear, vehicle damage and ammo is not balanced with the rate of constant spawns.

Also you really need people to add to your base, with specialties like chef, mechanic, chemist and medical. The problem is when you are sent out to get new NPCs, they most often give you crappy useless NPCs. So you either have to take them out to get killed or manually make a Savegame, from before you ask the Radio Operator to send Invites. There is only one Savegame, so it constantly gets overwritten. You have to make manual saves in the savegame folder, so you can use a save from before you had the operator call.

Every time I click on something that looks great the first thing I see is "early access". Really getting tired of them lumped with completed games...
Agreed, it's annoying as hell.

Seems a bit overreactive considering how far FPS stories have come since 1992 Wolfenstein 3D. The mere fact that the effect of violence in games as a method of emotional development is now plausible, pretty much proves he is being disingenuous.

Best of my memory, the progression of story development for strictly Shooters (obviously RPGs have a huge advantage) happened over about a 10 year arc. Starting with Wolfenstein 3D, Duke Nukem 3D, Unreal and Chaser (first full motion videos with a serious story, iirc). Now days of course there are even excellent ingame cutscenes.

Personally I don't mind lots of nameless mobs of no consequence, if it fits the story. Just as in the original Bioshock, showed people mindlessly following. Destroying their lives, their bodies all for the false promise of capitalism. Wealth and power at the expense of society. How it was just made up nonsense, which never existed before let alone in a democracy. Infinite is doing the same thing just showing the result of the mindlessness of a society governed, by merging religion and state. The individuals are a result of belief over reason.

Guess I'm asking if GamersGate is trustworthy.

I'd say yes. I've used them quite a bit in the past and never had a problem.
Excellent, thanks!

Gamer's Gate is pretty low on the DRM end. Download, install, and activate throught there proprietary downloader then never use it again unless you need to re-install. Just be aware of what DRM the game itself ships with.

And YES nin, I GOT FAR CRY BLOOD DRAGON.
Thanks for the info, Prez. Both games I'm interested in specifically say, drm free, but I know they both originally had starforce. So they would/have to list it, if they did contain starforce or drm? Guess I'm asking if GamersGate is trustworthy.

What's the word on GamersGate? I found a couple of older EU retro titles without the dreaded starforce they originally used. Sound likes you can only install the downloaded game files, once you log in. However it doesn't sound like you have to log in every time you play the game.

Papers, Please! Woot!!!!! Easily my favorite indie game this year.
I've got to try this game, sounds really great.

It's really too bad we PC gamers are missing The Last of Us, sounds amazing. I've tried to read about it, the one thing (not counting, excluding the PC of course.) I don't understand is why get a 30 year old actress to play a 14 year old. Surely all the wonderful young talent could do an excellent job. ChloŽ Grace Moretz, Dakota Fanning, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson and Hailee Steinfeld?

I just realized I STILL don't have FC Blood Dragon. Has it been on sale on Steam yet this season? (Not that the $15 normal price is all that out of reach!)

WTF PREZ?!?!?

How can you say no to this?


I actually found the game very distracting - and couldn't finish past the first 30 minutes....I had just finished a very lengthy 100% play through of FC3 though.....
Same here, there is something so wrong with that first area, could never get it to save. It just pissed me off so much, I stopped trying to play the game. I kept reading about it being a bug, but it was never fixed.

On the other hand FC3 was amazingly good, especially with Ziggy's and the Immersive Sounds. uplay sucks though, can't believe those clowns at ubi force us to log in twice to play a game.

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is on at Amazon for $5. Totally worth it.
Sweet! Damn wish CoJ on Steam was $5, but I've still got it on disc. It's weird amazon sells the other CoJ sequels but not the original Steam code version.

Creston wrote on Dec 26, 2013, 13:58:
Most of those Origin deals are pretty pathetic, but if you've never played it, getting the entire Mass Effect trilogy for 24 bucks is incredible value.
Woah, slow that Mustang down there!

It's been on sale several times on amazon's sale for $9.99! BUT IT'S STILL MISSING THE DLC! It will go on sale again on 1/1/2014. It wouldn't be so bad if there was a possibility of getting the dlc on sale, but it's origin.

It's been on amazon's sale several times for $7.50 and will be again the 27th!

Edit: origin sale is craptastic.

Looks like Valve saw the error of their wicked ways.

All I had to do was click on Install, while on the Left for Dead 2 page. I got a message saying Left for Dead 2 had been registered to my account. I then could choose to install, visit the store or library.

Edit: Unless of course Registered to your Account doesn't mean own.

I'm guessing the same about ChloŽ Grace Moretz.

Anyone got a chance to try Contagion? Looks like it might be Coop, instead of pvp. Also not being forced to drink water every 5 min or constantly hounded to drink, is a plus to me.

Damn, doesn't say if prices on GamersGate are EU or US.

Odd, sounds like we are saying the same thing, but according to you I'm complaining.

Maybe try re-reading what I said. I didn't say you were complaining. I said if you want it to change you need to complain...as in to the Publisher to get it changed for future sales. /facepalm

All you can do is complain. It worked to get the DLC discounted for Van Helsing...but I really doubt a company as big as Bethesda is going to care.
Doh, my bad!

Edit:Yeah, my bet is they will wait till Legendary price drops enough to where they are equal prices.

How would it being in the $10 category improve it's public view over being on the front page as a Flash Sale? Makes no sense.
Maybe I'm missing your point. Viewership? Front page of Steam. On Specials List for bargain shoppers. Draws them in for the cheaper vanilla price without the download content.

It's the same scam as a lot of other companies have been doing lately. Massively discount the base game, leaving the DLC with a small discount, or none at all and hoping people that only buy the base game, or only have the base game already will turn around and drop $20 for Legendary or go for the DLC's Individually.

Bioware DLC can only be purchased using Bioware Points and Bioware Points never go on sale. So... yeah, you won't be seeing any discounts on ME DLC anytime soon.
Thanks for the info, I'm not surprised by anything antigamer or greedy by ea.

I'm just amazed that there are people out there who still don't own Skyrim.

Also, the community sales are really annoying. People always vote for games that have already had the exact same discount many times before. Even if I'm not interested in a particular game, I will vote for it if the discount is unprecedented.
Best I can see is they still sell vanilla Skyrim for Flash sales (currently active) so they can be listed in the, Under $10 category to lure in the unsuspecting 'word of mouth' customers. Also, of course they want current Skyrim owners to buy Legendary, so they are holding back 75% off sales on dlc.


Anyone know about Contagion, it's getting some good reviews for being in Beta? I'm not sure if it's really survival but it does report 8 man Coop. Zombie killing on Source Engine and apparently it was a mod previously.
