Windows 10 goes free(kinda, sorta), Unreal 4 Engine goes free, PhysX is free now, what the hell is going on, it's the apocalypse!!!!! Good stuff.
You've missed Source 2 also free

You're right. I read something about that also. I wonder if this will put pressure on Carmack to release idTech 5 Engine for free. I hope so. Can't be anything but good for everybody.

What does Carmack have to do with it? He doesn't work for Bethsoft anymore.

I don't understand how these guys can just give these things away after sinking so much time and money into them. I get Source 2 as those games will likely end up on Steam anyway, and Unity has a monthly fee, and UE4 has royalties, but this?

I dunno. Maybe it's just me, but I want to play a game, not be frustrated by it. That kind of shit makes me put a game away and not feel like going back to it later. Maybe it could be done right, but it's a delicate balance to walk, I think.

If you're not playing it shouldn't move forward obviously, but when you are maybe there could be some sort of internal chronometer that once the quest starts it progresses along independent of you being there - so long as you're playing the game and doing something else. So that way you show up a few days - as measured by the game - later and the village has been burned to the ground by the centaurs and half the inhabitants slaughtered. Then they're all like, 'You fucking douchebag! You said you'd help us then you dissapeared! So when the centaurs showed up we told them to go fuck themselves because we thought you were going to kick their asses for us! Well now half the town is butchered and burnt to the ground! Nice play, Shakespeare! Thanks for nothing! Get lost!'

The most likely scenario I see is Barrack Obama giving him a full pardon as he leaves office. If I was Snowden I don't think I'd take the chance on anything less.

It certainly doesn't feel like his actions have led to a lot of investigations and punishment. It's almost as if the people doing all this stuff turned around and said, yeah we did it, and what are you going to do about it? ...and then nothing happened.

I saw that pic of a movie being made about him, maybe that will put things into motion. It's hard to even comprehend what is happening behind the scenes that he was trying to alert everyone to. A well made movie might be able to tie it together in a way many Americans can understand.

That's the saddest part. They guy did this as a patriot hoping it would change things, which only demonstrates just how naive he really was. I bet if he could go back and undo it he would. He should have just quit and went into the private sector. Most people just aren't worth a damn.

I've been out of the country for a while now, but i'm pretty sure that it's Sir Wilfred Laurier on the 5, not that womanizing drunkard.

Right you are. Laurier was another asshole who doesn't belong on money either.

What you end up with is a sequence of quests to make the game feel more reactionary, but then to try and make it feel fuller, they put in optional side-quests, which often feel like just what they are--last minute additions. Is there a middle-ground between "do whatever the eff you want" and "when you do this, the game feels the impact"?

The problem I've always had with CRPGs - even the ones I love - is how static the world is. I'd dearly love to see one that unfolds around you, and if you choose not to participate some of them, at least, will pass you by. With games like ED there isn't enough structure. There's no hook to engage you. You should be able to overhear a conversation in a spaceport bar that starts you on a quest, or find or buy some smuggled data that gives you the opportunity to pursue a quest organically.

As much as people bitch about quests with time limits I always found it absurd that I could go off and do whatever I want for as long as I want and come pack to said quest and pick up like it was frozen in time just for me. I always find that jarring. I'd love to come back and see the townsfolk say, 'Oh you blew it, man. Some other adventurers came through, saved our bacon and got the reward so we don't need you anymore.' Or the town got wiped out or what have you.

I want to be able to not always win. I'd like some setbacks and let downs. I'd like to be considered a pariah because I told the villagers I'd save them and failed to do so. Winning is a lot sweeter after you've failed a number of times.

Looking forward to seeing Od Nua. I'd still dearly love to see a game based solely on Waterdeep and Undermountain.

I don't know. I'm a little less impressed now. I wanted to jump on the Collector's Edition, but seeing as it's all sold out and may not even be back in stock ever, plus this video is kind of... meh... Wait and see.

Plus it doesn't have salamanders.

Heh, the problem with these games of this size and scope is they all end up being repetitive PDQ. What's a Witcher's job anyway? To fight monsters. So yeah, that just becomes a grind after a while. And most of the side quests just end up as filler like in Skyrim, Inquisition. I think that's why I prefer my CRPGs to have a smaller footprint and tighter focus.

Sir John A. is a source of national pride? The man was a drunk. He used to show up in Parliament three sheets to the wind and pass out in his seat. I've never agreed with putting politicians on money to begin with. They should have a vote on these things.

That Wes Anderson spoof was terrible. The Star Wars one was miles better.

And yes, that gas tank vid was totes staged.

I'm surprised the first doesn't suit your fancy Cutter. It doesn't have console-ish UI and has pure roots in PC design. One playthrough took me 90 hours though.

I dunno. A lot of people feel the same way. For some reason it just failed to hook me and pull me in. Same with the second one. I found the combat and magic systems to be cumbersome. Trying to remember sigils, which weapon to use where and when. And Geralt's voice acting was just so flat and boring.

A deeply divisive figure, he is praised by some as a civil rights campaigner and whistleblower and condemned by others as a traitor who compromised U.S. security.

How could anyone see him that way? Who could possibly be in favour of Big Brother monitoring every aspect of their lives? That's the very definition of anti-American.

U.S. Justice Department spokesman Marc Raimondi told Reuters: "It remains our position that Mr. Snowden should return to the United States and face the charges filed against him. If he does, he will be accorded full due process and protections."

Yeah, sure he would. Forget it Ed. I wouldn't want to stay in Russia but I wouldn't want to go home either. It's too bad he couldn't land in Europe somwhere.

Yeah, I've been keeping an eye out for a cheap key but there are none right now because they pulled virtually all the old copies everywhere. I think they're stoned if they think they can ask $60 for a client as an F2P game - particularly when it's all been setup for consoles anyway.
I'd pay $20 to give the game a run through once now but that's it, so doesn't look like I'll be checking it out anytime soon.

Seeing as I could never get into the first two Ima definitely wait and see on this. The game world looks effing amazing however the console UI doesn't leave me hopeful.

They didn't announce it today so it's over. It would seem Valve is out of games development entirely now.

..because they didn't announce a new game at a developer's conference?

You left out the key word, game. What's the last original thing they did? Portal 2, 4 or 5 years ago? Do they really strike you as a company that's been really interested in making actual games in the last decade? Dota2? Something they never created and treat as a revenue stream doesn't really count in my books. They don't strike me as the least bit interested and haven't for a long time.

What if HL3 is being developed by another developer? ... like George Broussard or Chris Roberts?

Heh. Well, it'll take a few years for Broussard to even announce it and Roberts won't even start a KS for it without a million dollar stretch goal to launch it. I can see it now. Gordon's suit? 1 million. Gordon's glasses? 1 million. Gordon's crowbar? 1 million.

A guy gets incredibly lucky once isn't a god. It's like calling Powerball winners lottery gods. And from the sounds of how he goes through money he won't be a billionaire for long at that rate.
