The service of GOG is fucking amazing.

Although their humor leaves rather much to be desired.

What do you mean?

Mostly like the "We are no longer *beta* GoG and so *beta* GoG will shut down" prank a while ago.
Except they left the *beta* part out of the whole thing, until it was over. So they were saying "GoG will shut down"
And their video apology was offensive, condescending, and amounted basically to "you idiots have no sense of humor"

It took a long time until I bought anything from them again. And anytime I have a choice between them and steam, I buy from steam.

I've heard GOG and Steam have pulled the game and basically the company is now defunct.
At least for GOG, the pulling would seem to be voluntary on the part of the dev.
http://www.gog.com/news/release_dark_matter
Note: Following some discussions with Iceberg Interactive, we have been asked to remove Dark Matter for sale while the developer addresses the fact that the game's ending has some problems. The game will remain available for download for anyone who has already bought it. The developers have stated that they are working on a patch as a solution to this, and as we mentioned yesterday, anyone who wants a refund on their copy of their game is free to contact Support and we'll take care of you. Our apologies about this, and we hope that this helps address the problem. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment below.

I'd buy sims 3 if I could get the COMPLETE package with everything ever released ever under $100.
As long as its going to cost me $1000 or WTF ever, no way.

Hey! Why don't you make it online only. We see how well that worked out for you! Pfft jackasses!

Actually....

The disastrous launch of SimCity is over and done with. Emerging from the wreckage with two million sales and counting, Electronic Arts is considering allowing the game to be played offline like many of us originally wanted. Speaking to GamesBeat, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau said what we were thinking: that the backlash resulted, at least partially, in The Sims 4 being announced as a "single-player, offline experience."

"In the last few months, we have started making changes to the business practices that gamers clearly don't like," said Gibeau. "In the spring, we dropped our online pass program for consoles -- both next-generation and current-generation. We listened to the feedback on SimCity and decided that The Sims 4 would be built as a single-player, offline experience."
Wow is this a first? EA listening to their customers? And people here say complaining never does anything.

I didn't play the expansions, but I don't know if I want to play this again... Sure the boss fights sucked, but I got past them. Maybe I could try to do it without ever being seen/knocking anyone out.
I know there's an achievement for 100% non lethal playthrough.

Wow, I loved that game!!

And this company is led by Damon Slye who did things at dynamix like the original game, stellar 7, etc. And the original DEATHTRACK!! OMG I LOVED THAT!

But persistent multiplayer and MOBA? Similar to star citizen, sounds like they are trying to throw everything thats hot right now into it.

I think I'll wait until it comes out.

Dang decent of them to offer it for $5 to those who already have everything.

Also, they finally fixed the boss fights? Nice! That was the one huge complaint that the game forced you to play a particular way in those sequences.

Stanley Parable is awesome! I wouldn't really call it a game though... I have no idea what I'd call it! It's a lot of fun for three hours.

wtf. Steam says I played 11 hours. There's NO way that's correct.
If you left it running overnight, it counts that.

I still disagree with you guys. If someone is still actively using a copyright, why should it lapse?

The argument is typically that it would encourage innovation - why would allowing some guy to make a Mario game encourage innovation? Yeah, I know the argument is that Nintendo couldn't keep kicking out Mario games because the brand would be so diluted that they'd need to come up with new characters.

But why? For one, we'd get an endless flood of shitty Mario games, which seems to help no one. For another, shouldn't we be encouraging the people, like the guy here, that are making cool Mario games to instead innovate and create their own characters?
All that would still be protected if it was shorter. Still don't see the need for 100 year copyright.

More alpha testing is one of the better goals I've seen, because this is going to need it. With the money they are pulling in, they can spent a million on a dedicated testing team and not miss it.

Undoubtedly its something with win 8.1 and xBone. Probably something along the lines of "you upgrade to 8.1 or you can't even play the games we sponsor"
Considering the lack of support for GFWL, not only from developers but gamers I'm surprised that it lasted as long as it did. It's easy to shoehorn people into something when it's your market, but when the market is what people decide they want to put up with, then things change quickly.
Well with the new directx requiring windows 8.1, wouldn't surprise me if MS started sponsoring games if they require that crap. More shoehorning ahead.

Every day hundreds are signing up... it has been a slow uptick of the # of people signing up every day. It is not just the USA but all over the world.

I just don't believe that 2000 people are signing up every day for $77 a piece, and keep on doing this so day after day after week after week after month after month. Not when no other Kickstarter has gotten even anywhere near those numbers of people. Yet Roberts keeps adding a million dollars basically every week?

I'm pretty sure this is just investor money that they're pretending is crowdsourced.

I'm a Star Citizen backer, but I share your suspicions. I'm sorry, but crowd sourced titles like this follow a pretty consistent pattern with how the money comes in. You don't keep up steady and consistent gains over a long period of time.

If I had to guess, I'd say a certain amount of investor money was gained early on, and he's pretending that its rolling in slowly to keep the game in the press. Admittedly a bit of a tinfoil hat theory, but something is definitely fishy here.
That's like not believing that overpriced apple products are successful. Its hit a critical mass that has a life of its own now.

What is the motivation to fake the money to roll in like this? If he's faking, he's just ending up having to add more and more promised features. He can get press even without doing that.

He would have been far better off just relying on the KS and the $10 mil in private funds, if it was fake. Then he wouldn't need to promise features, and he could sell out to the investors and abandon the project and let someone else finish it.

Its about time. I've bought them already on steam, but at least now I don't have to run extra layers of TOTAL CRAP such as gfwl
You know its crap if even MS doesn't keep it up.

Hey, you know all that talk from MS about rededicating themselves to PC over the last year or so? Maybe this is what they meant, by killing the crappy GFWL, LOL

News Comments > Space Rangers HD: A War Apart Released

Doh, I just sent this in to blue.

Anyway, here's what I put in my email:

One of my fav games, Space Rangers 2, just got an overhaul with significant added content and graphics upgrade. Apparently they've had this in russian for a while, but just now got it professionally translated to english. I found out about it when I looked at the complete list of steam sale items. Its oddly not on the steam new releases list, apparently because its been avail only in russian regions until now. Which makes me wonder if I'm missing other games on steam lol.

Also Space Colony is another fun one.

Startopia arrived on steam recently:

I've not tried to figure out what version is on steam, 1.01 was the last official patch, then there was 1.02 with shadows. I'm trying to remember what else there was... seems like there was a semi official mod with content add, but I could be misremembering.
