Excellent article. And one that clearly demonstrates why the US needs lots more competition, not less. Not only should no mergers going forward be permitted, they should be breaking up - once again - some of these major corps for all time. Better still nationalize it and tender the contracts for the building and running of the whole shebang.

Love the concept, not so sure about the actual gameplay from watching that trailer though.

The fact that we only have 15 posts so far is really indicative of the mood on the summer sale. Enthusiasm for this year's sale is way, way down.

I'd say it's the last several sales in general. It's like they're not even trying anymore. Even the flash sales are a joke for the most part. As I said you can find most all that stuff on key sites for considerably cheaper already. Or if you look at Any Deal they're the same price - if not higher - than they have been on every other sale foe too long now. It seems like the Xmas sale is the only thing that gets a modicum of effort and not even so much that over the last few.

It's just such an amazing game. Even for all its minor imperfections it's arguably the best CRPG ever made in both scope and quality.

This is some damned high praise! I'm tempted to buy it even at the measly 10% off gog.com has right now, although the Steam/Gog backlog is getting utterly ridiculous at this point.


And this is from someone who didn't really care for the first two games at all. I was really tempted to bypass this or just wait for a very deep discount...glad I didn't. If ever there was a game worth full price this is it. However, several people managed to snag keys on Ebay for $25 or so and that's an outright steal for this game, so you could get lucky. I got the GoG preorder goodness via G2A for $40 CDN all said and done and I'm more than happy with that.

Doesn't even matter what your backlog is because you'll drop everything else like a hot potato when you get into this. This is a defining game in the genre. It really has set the new standard for every other CRPG to be judged by. I suspect for the next several years you'll be hearing 'Well, it's no Witcher 3, I'll tell you that!'

Only real major problem is they could have done a lot better job in balancing the XP, it's just far too easy to outlevel quests without even trying. I'm gonna' post about that on their forums. The rest of it is all small stuff that's easily overlooked. Everything else is just amazebals.

And he's not going to jail why? Wow, bilk people out of over 100k and a slap on the wrist. He doesn't even have to repay because he's currently broke? WTF? Garnish his fucking future earnings. In fact he should have to pay back everyone double what he fleeced them for. It's no wonder so many people are done with crowdsourcing.

Enh, no great shakes...again. Most of this stuff - and stuff on my wishlist - is already considerably cheaper on G2A or Kinguin - or has been cheaper before looking at the Any Deal website. I may go in for Beyond Earth if it gets past 50 points off, otherwise this may be another Steam sale where I don't buy anything.

So why doesn't that one major critic go out and make games for them if there's such an obvious, untapped market? Talk is cheap, whiskey costs money.

Him and Peter Cushing in their version of The Hound of the Baskervilles was always my fave version of that story - though I prefer Basil Rathbone for the rest of the Holmes flicks. That and all the old Hammer flicks they did together, The Gorgon and The Creeping Flesh being particular favorites. He was amazing in everything and what a sheer volume of work. I think I'll have to give The Wicker Man and The Man With the Golden Gun a watch soon.

Best Holmes ever? Jeremy Brett.

Have you ever seen the old Basil Rathbone flicks? It's not even close that he's the best.

Well than that idiot has no case because Americans aren't a race. How can someone possibly have a college education and not understand the difference between racism and bigotry? He's only proving the Japanese exec right.

Saw that trailer a while back. Can't wait for the film. This and the Tom Hardy one - Legend - I will probably catch in the theatres.

My boss says to me that he had the "pleasure" of working in India on some DCS systems 25 years ago. He said it's a gross fucking country filled with disgusting people pissing and shitting all over everything.

I used to think he was maybe just over exaggerating because he had a bad time there... That article and watching the people bathe beside dead people in the ganges are starting to make me think he might actually be correct.

Conversely, public toilets are generally so fucking disgusting I'd rather just piss & shit anywhere else.

More realistic managers would help, as would less ridiculous deadlines that lead to mostly useless crunch time.

And the more people crunch, the more it justifies that initial ridiculous deadline from management. Onward the cycle goes...

There needs to be more "no" men.

No-men. I like that. Yeah, it's pretty ridiculous when you consider most of those people have the skillset to walk away and find other work in other industries without breaking a sweat. They need to learn to stop letting themselves be exploited.

No, I asked if you were superstitious and wear all your Mets paraphernalia for a game. So now we know that you obviously jinxed them...because you did...or didn't do that.
