Looks like amazon is updating their ship dates of PS4, based on the launch date. Got an email overnight, stating it was estimated as November 15th. Can't wait!

But that's what you're doing...

I really need to sit down and get through the rest of the first game... Huge Castlevania fan, but mostly for the Platformer RPGs...

Screw the expansion... I just came here to give 'props' to Blue for his Thanos mention : )

Being a big Adam Warlock fan, I know all about the Thanos : )

something tells me that you can ask for a refund once and you'll get it.

Ask later on a different game? The answer is "no."

Strictly a marketing ploy.

Partially a marketing ploy, but this kind of answers the question earlier in the thread... If people try to abuse the system, it won't let them...

Of the hundreds of Steam games I have, there are probably about 3 that I would have wanted a refund for, and getting even 1 of those would have been great : )

While this is a move in the right direction... it should be 24 hours after first launch of the game or even 24 hours after actual download... I buy games on Steam Sales and don't get around to playing them for weeks, due to backlog.

And yes... there are a few games in my library that I wish I could get a refund on.

But... You realize that YOU... Have a problem... The system shouldn't be managed for the exception.

I have taken to installing every new game I have in a bundle, and when I'm done with it, will remove it... I'm at about 65 games, of which there are about 5 I've beaten, and can remove (but don't, because I play them again, like Terraria, Dark Souls, Hammerwatch; Going through on Hard now; beat the skeleton boss last night).

Soooo I pretty much have to get this... Considering the name and all... Though maybe not yet, or for early access...

Also, for those interested in gameplay, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gPZiFUreEk

I'm happy to see the turn based combat is not crazy slow, but it's a bit hectic until you're used to it.

Have to keep that content coming all the time regularly.
Sorry, but, being a "lifer" at playing video games is not an appropriate lifestyle to have. I'm sorry you're a hardcore that spends all your life in your cave playing games, and therefore you get bored quicker than the rest of the normal people; but that's not our problem your lifestyle is like that.

The first "M" in "MMO" stands for "Massive". With "massive" games, requires massive time to play/enjoy entirety of it. If you spent all that massive time in your cave already, then that's your problem. Don't bitch at the developers because you have an addiction that you can't moderate.

And another troll joins the ranks on the ignore list.

Gratzies on the most ironic statement I've ever seen you make : )

Plus... How the hell was he not on your list already?

I played through the entire Dead Island campaign, even though it got a little grindy for my tastes, mostly due to zombies respawning in areas you just cleared as you make your way back.

The free running aspects seem pretty fun, the graphics look vastly improved, I'll probably at least try this on a Steam sale or something. Although Warner Bros is involved, this may end up being cursed with GFWL.

Hopefully this time the character powers aren't so horribly balanced... did anybody actually play the throwing skills guy in Dead Island?


The 'throwing skills' guy was the first char I played, and the only one fun enough to get through the game... After throwing shock knives that AOE on the target, moving to a blade/blunt weapon, or a gun seemed... weak...

'near Vancouver'... Every... Damn... Time...

My only option growing up was Silicon Knights, and I bombed my interview, so I ended up making a crap ton more money instead... Instead of making games and being abused... Pro's and Con's all around : )

Is it just me, or is the MOBA landscape completely oversaturated?
It is. And i haven't played any MOBA at all. Not even the first Dota mod for WC3. Life still goes on!

I fought against this claim with MMO's, especially as people made them when the first MMO after WoW came out, which was just silly...

But I've seen like 5 MOBA announcements this month... I'm mostly ignorant to the genre, but it seems to be pretty/too busy.

All of the games except Dead Space 3 are Steam, in fact you get both sets of keys when you buy this deal.


Fair warning, Battlefield 3 (assuming you pay over the 5 bucks or whatever) is also Origin only. Although hopefully everybody knows about BF3 at this point.

*EDIT* Typo.

No steam key for Sims either... Not that it would affect many Bluesnewsians : )

THEN, and only then, do they start to give in about the PC version. They've gotten pretty much all they can out of the console version, so now it's time to ring the PC version dry.

And? Rockstar may have started as a PC developer, but it wasn't until they switched to the PS2 with GTA3 that they became massively succesful. They've probably sold around a hundred million copies of their games on consoles. Kinda hard to complain when a dev favors consoles when their games sell 20+ million copies, and they were never succesful on the PC to begin with.

Bethesda, otoh...



But at the same time, GTA took a step into the realm of 3D as well with GTA3.

From what I recall of GTA 1/2, it wasn't nearly as story centric as 3+, but I've never been a big fan of the series, so don't quote me on that, unless you're a news person, in which case, facts don't matter anyways, so go ahead : )

My point being... story sells ; )

What issues are the steam forums talking about? Just launch servers being overwhelmed?
Crashes, bugs, servers not working, beta being better then retail game, etc etc

Think they uploaded the wrong version?

Oh there's no stopping me. I've managed to find $1.83 in my couch cushions and also have earned $2.50 by whoring myself out to all the women in my area (at $5 a pop - it's complicated). Quick - somebody do the math to see how far I have to go!

Can I do the math like the Count?

"One! That's one time whoring yourself out.
Two! Two times whoring yourself out.
*fast forward*
Nine hundred ninety nine thousand nine hundred and ninety six times whoring yourself out. Ah ah ah!"

You might get a bit tired by the end there. Pack a lunch.

Maybe some peanut butter and jelly sandwiches?

I missed the boat on Payday 1, but I picked up the beta and pre-order of Payday 2 and have really enjoyed it. I would say don't bother if you are only doing single player. The AI is like an ogre - dumb but almost invincible. I have had the stupid AI stand there doing nothing while I'm trying to zip tie a whole lobby of people. The only thing they do remotely well is soak up gunshots and kill cops.

Now with that said, multiplayer is a BLAST! I haven't had a rude person yet, everyone is helpful. And the first smash-and-grab mission is fantastic when done as a team - you have 30 seconds to smash jewelry cases, bag the jewels, and get out. Absolutely impossible in single player, so it turns into a 30 minute firefight. But in MP if you coordinate it's a sub-30 second mission.

Highly recommend this - get the four pack if you have some friends that want it too, then you have friends to play it with, and it saves you about $8 a copy.

I had a dick in my first MP game... Some lvl 30 (max) lvl guy, joining a game with lvl 1's, 2's, and then bitching about how he hates to play with noobs... I saw his level before the game started, so don't know why the 'not a noob' couldn't see that, and choose another game...

Outside of that, a lot of people are inexperienced, including myself, and it's still been a lot of fun... Failing a heist sucks, but it's still neat, and new enough, that it's alright.

As for single player, I only did a bit, and played with a friend and 2 bots a few times. It's not horrible, and if you have a mission with a dozen bags that need to be moved, you're likely fucked, as they just follow you around and shoot. One thing they do, that's awesome, is help you back up (keep an eye on that shield, and use the cover often).

I'm not sure I like it enough to pick it up... I don't like the 'progression'... As in, you do a heist and get a random mod/cash/etc... But at least it has skill trees (ammo/medic bags are crazy useful, but the others, not so much).

You only get two keys in the Humble Bundle (one for the first four games and one for the rest), so keep that in mind if you were planning on giving away keys for the games you already own.

Just to clarify.. You mean one key for SR 2/3, Sacred and Risen? And then a single separate key for DeadIsland/SR3-full? I imagine Riptide would have to be separate, so third key.

I can't think of any combo that isn't confusing...

Edit: N/m... found it on reddit... 3 keys for the 3 levels...
