Well, guess I know where all my gold is going... At 30k, if you put in some effort, you can make it all back long before account expiry too : )

Any tips on where to get GTA cheapest?

Looks like GMG has it for $10 less than Steam, which is kind of surprising

What is surprising?

GMG has a near constant 20% off coupon... If it's not currently active (check their blog), wait a day... I haven't bought any near-launch AAA title from Steam in years, because GMG is always cheaper...

Not that it's not impressive... Not leveling the weapons would be much more so ; )

So this is the final installment in the $180 SC campaign right? Too bad SC won't be sold on steam...

'theHunter'... I really can't take that seriously... Almost as bad as using numbers in place of letters in movie titles...

200+... I realize that's a selling point for a lot of people... But holy crap, even one quarter of that is too much for me... Unless the combat (where you spend most of the game) is amazing, anything over 20 hours starts to bore me... Add that to my inability to stick to one game at a time, I have a ton of half completed games...

I actually found Outpost 2 to be pretty fun - is that the one you're referring to?


No no. I am referring to this monstrosity.


It was so broken at release that it was literally unplayable. Since the Internet wasn't a thing back then, Sierra sent those of us who were suckers that bought it who owned it replacement discs in the mail after it was truly finished.

At the time, Computer Gaming World was a really big magazine and it spent ten pages ripping it apart savagely.

RIP CGW...

Wooohooo! Congrats, Obsidian, and thanks to everyone who KS'ed!

And a big hearty FUCK YOU to every publisher who said these kind of games weren't in demand anymore and couldn't be done anymore. FUCK YOU.

What some publishers seem to fail to realize, is that old people don't want change... And we're at a point where a lot of gamers are old people (hence the success of this site ; )... And who has the most disposable income? Old people... : )

Unfortunately this weekend is already reserved by Bloodborne.

Praise the Sunny !

Pistol/Whipcane all the way man. Game is awesome. Already got my ass kicked several times but I'm getting a good feel for the new pacing now.

My first char started with that combo... The '2h' version of the whip was great in that early area with a ton of mobs, and the '1h' version is nice and fast... Then I restarted on an intended str char, picked the axe... Don't like slow weapons, but then I found the Saw Spear... OMG... So fast, so strong... Ripped through the first 3 bosses with 1 death (on the third). Ironically, while the Saw Spear scales D/D, it scales a bit faster in Skill, so I'm about at a 25/25 Quality build. Damn fun game, though, the first few hours adjusting, were frustrating ; )

To paraphrase Chun from Remo Williams, "I see the deadly EA has done its evil work."

There isn't a franchise created by an acquired development studio that EA can't turn to shit, usually right before shutting down that same studio.

Chiun... And there's a new spinoff to the series, called Legacy, about Remo's two offspring, for those of us that didn't get into The Destroyer previously... First e-book is only $2.55 on amazon : )

Tees react- Gaming is .. hilarious

I've seen one other of these, and it was also funny... Having just played through Last of Us last week, my memory of the game, and how I felt at certain spots, is present, so it's neat to see the variance.

And yes, I had assumed that Ellen Page was voicing the kid, because holy crap... But it was the Seaver kid instead : )

Having just gotten my PS4, for Bloodborne, I couldn't be certain, but aren't patches forced on you? When I install anything, it starts downloading the patch (there's always a patch) anyways... I didn't have to manually do anything (except with BB, which is a pre-load)...

Warframe pushed their U16 patch today too. New frame, couple new weapons, new 8-man raid, and a lot of other changes/balances/fixes.

I enjoyed Warframe quite a bit... Enough to throw $20 at them, for credits that I never ended up using... But I hate the 'leveling' system... You need to keep leveling unique weapons to level your account high enough to use some of the crafted weapons... I just gave up, and stopped playing.

Does this [the basic game, no DLC] develop much after the slums? I've spent quite a few hours mostly doing side quests and enjoyed it but unless the gameplay develops in the main quest, I think I've had my fill.

Yes, the slums area was only half the game!

That's not what he asked...

The second half of the game plays much like the first, though some of the unlocked abilities make mass killing much easier (which is more fun)... The story continues, both good and bad...

But really, all you really need to know, is that the twins story line gets wrapped up... : )

I'm genuinely curious: how do you reconcile your hatred for censorship with your liberal use of the ignore function on Blues?

One is your own action, one is another person's action... People can justify their own actions all day long ; )

A simple question,,,,say,,15 to 20 years ago,,,would we have paid for games like ,,,,titanfall? Call of duty? Would we have paid for map packs to titanfall?

60 dollars for the game,,50 dollars for the ms account,,,then ,what,20 bucks for the next dlc? To play that?

No fucking way,,,the standard was half life ,quake,doom,,unreal,,etc...someone earlier said something about the low expectations of modern gamers and he was absolutely fucking right..

That's about what I paid for Phantasy Star III... Soooo ya...

FYI, this also requires you to login through facebook.

What? I didn't have to do that. I put in my email address and boom, key. I already have a Bundle Stars account though....maybe that is why.
It asked me to log into Facebook.

Ya, it's too bad... Game costs too much for me ; )

The snippet Blue posted is neat, but there's so much more info in the link, and I likey... I know I'll anger some Bluesnewsians, but, I would totally pre-order and EA this title ; )

DrSquick wrote on Mar 11, 2015, 15:55:
I have a silly question - Minecraft with mods was one of my favorite games of all time. I really enjoyed Starbound, but I am totally lost in Terraria!

I see pictures of people with automated things, pools of honey to heal them, and every time I try to play I get stuck building some houses for the villagers and then don't know what to do next. Does anyone have any idea of what the next goals are supposed to be, or any good video tutorial series on it?

http://terraria.gamepedia.com/Terraria_Wiki has a list of areas with suggested order... If you want more, structured, help, there are plenty of video's... I haven't looked in years, but even then, it wasn't hard to find some intro or progression vids... A lot of the stuff you seem interested in is, not surprisingly, late game, so expect it to take some time.

Okay, let’s get real. Yep, we’re booting this development from scratch. There’s a lot that can go wrong between funding and delivery of the game we’re promising. We could run dry on funds, lose key people, mistake our original goals, and/or just not deliver the level of quality we imagined.


Not really something you want to be putting as a disclaimer at the bottom of your pitch. But that's just me. This shows lack of confidence on their part and gives them an out for when they don't deliver on their pitch or add micro-transactions or go free-2-play later.


Conversely, the honesty is nice, and something I've seen asked for many a time, here and there.
