Now you can not only buy, and not play games, you can install them and not play them!

“What I learned from doing the first campaign is that while some people cared about multiplayer, the vast majority of people who were excited about the game were excited about the single-player campaign and mod support,”

TLDR nothing more to add

Just for you bluesnewsers constantly trying to piddle coop as the next coming, coop is nice to have, but many games can be UTTERLY ruined by MP

I'm all for a good SP campaign, but coop makes nearly any SP game better : )

what the point in call it kings quest then ? Those who know the games from the past will expect a point and click adventure. Those not knowing the name from the past wont buy it because its called kings quest.....

Those that really know the games from the past will expect no mouse interaction, and everything will be typed : )

I'm really confused by this. In Warcraft 3 it was revealed that the orcs in Warcraft 1 and 2 were assholes because of demonic influence. So in this "alternate timeline", they rejected the demonic influence...yet are doing the same damn thing?

How does that make any sense?

Play the game to find out?

Sierra was, by far, my fav company back then (25 years ago)... I had a great, under the table, summer job... and half my check went to them every week heh... I think I bought a dozen Sierra games that summer.

That's also when I first taught myself to code, and sent a few letters to Sierra, getting very encouraging responses both times. Apparently, they used a custom mix of C and Pascal at the time : )

I'm apparently in the minority, but I bought this with my XBone, and I enjoyed it... I enjoyed the story, and this is the first time (outside of Dragon's Lair), where I've played a game with this kind of control scheme... It wasn't challenging, but it was interesting enough to keep me going until the end.

Sadly, my XBone has been in a box since I tried to take it back a week after I bought it, so I've barely touched the other game I picked it up with (Dead Rising 3).

I like spicy food, though I won't order the hottest thing on the menu... I've had some too hot food, and it's a waste of money...

I never wear pants... I shovel 2ft of snow off my driveway in shorts... I do wear a coat though.

I generally don't care about celebrities... Except Blue... : )

I shave twice a week, because my favorite facial time is the day after shaving, when it's short and pokey : )

Cute article though... Being cracked, it's not surprising they go over the top with their ravings, but I've definitely seen examples of 4 of those ; )

Oh, and I need my sleep... Which reminds me of one time when I was... About 12, I 'slept' over at a friends place, but ended up playing on his family's C64 all night... I didn't own one, and the only times I got to play on them previous to that, was when visiting my aunt, because I would go to the mall in front of her place, and play on the C64 there for hours : )

I didn't like the first 2, but I liked the CGI for the third, so went to the Steam page to consider it... Looked over the reviews... first was negative... Unusual... next... negative... all... negative... Haven't seen that in like, ever...

Clicked on the 'All 178 reviews' linked... Just for fun, scanned through them all... Took like 140 to get to a blue/positive review... Counted 15 out of 178 were positive. Crazy shit.

Not surprising at all Divinity, but very glad they stuck to their guns and did it the way we knew would succeed.

I can't tell you how many idiot posts sounded like: "Turn based? LOLOL nothkxkbye!". Bet 90% bought the game and are glad they did...

Turn based is a large part of the reason I didn't get it... Does having different interest make me an idiot? : )

Guess Divinity is the new skyrim. Congrats to them!


Dammit, I was gonna say the same thing!

Okay, okay, let's put our wood away. When it's still in the top ten a year from now we can start saying that.

Or we can just give credit where credit is due. DOS is a top notch RPG that deserves the success it is receiving.

Granted, but it's been up there 3 weeks, not 30, so it's not really even close to Skyrim (yet?).

Like anything that is infected with steam = NO Book

Well at least we know that you are not playing many games then...

Stop.Feeding.The.Fucking.Trolls.

I'm looking forward to Blue's annual housecleaning he tends to do around the holidays.


But Cutter's still around...

The fact is that there are a lot of companies that make their livelihood on STALKER, so when we showed up on the scene, they saw us as a threat and did everything that they could to stop us.

Really? Like what? I can't think of a single company whose livelihood depends on STALKER. Unless you count modders as companies. Even then, their mods don't make them any money so... yeah.

Really?

I haven't paid much attention to this fiasco, but the first news item I remember about it, was a competitor (another STALKER 'spin off' developer) calling it out...

Thank you all for the help. I am definitely going to play some DarkSouls on the PC as soon as I get a bit of time. I remembered on Saturday that I had Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen on my PS3 from my Plus account... not sure when it was on there. Think it is gone now, they seem to have taken it down. Anyway, I got hooked on it and I'm have blast play it at the moment.

Seeing the news of this release has got my DarlSouls monkey jumping all over my back.

I picked that one off ebay last week... Hasn't arrived yet, but I've heard good things : )

DayZ is the current meme, like Minecraft was. It's the in thing to buy atm.

I don't think you understand what a meme is. Minecraft is still super popular, btw. Nothing past tense about it. They've sold about 54 million copies thus far and are still going strong. If Minecraft were available on Steam, it would probably be the top seller.

Seriously... You're not new here... Stop feeding him...

I have no interest in this game, but, taken by itself, I don't see why using Unity assets (which are not directly limited to Unity), is a bad thing... Making a 'quick n dirty' prototype is exactly what those assets are for.

News Comments > Hearthstone Expansion Next Week
4. Re: Hearthstone Expansion Next Week Jul 18, 2014, 11:14 Alamar
 
I loaded this back up last night (haven't touched it since earlyish beta), played a game, which went well (for me), but found myself wondering, even then, where the longevity was. Your very basic options are to play AI, players, or some arena thing I didn't check out.

I'm curious what the Naxx stuff will offer, but I'm expecting it'll just be some new AI opponents, which sounds a bit too boring. I like the idea of having some progression based goal, so I'll give it a whirl, but the whole card collection thing is NOT doing it for me. I did like MTG way back, and then again 5-10 years later (now 15 years ago), so the concept can be appealing to me...

The lack of being able to chat with your opponent, unless I just didn't see the option, is a bit of a turn off... Sure, most games, all that would be exchanged is a 'gg' or 'fu' at the end, but even that would have been nice... I think you can accomplish that with some kind of emotes, unless the game was automating that all along...
