I couldn't disagree with you more regarding KQ5. Loved that game. Still do.

KQ5 to me is the epitome of clicking on random crap to get results. Throw a pie at the yeti because... I don't know, why? Why do you want to throw a boot at a one time-only event of a cat chasing the mouse? Because you can, that's why. Also, you won't be able to win the game. How do you get through the desert? Is there a map? No, you get through by saving and loading your way through. This was the kind of thing that struck me as particularly un-clever and unrewarding gameplay.

Both the pie and boot were pretty obvious solutions for me. Even my preteen self figured those out pretty quick, dunno. As for the desert. Yup. That was hard. You had to explore and have a number of save games. It was trial and error and a lot of dying. Not easy. And very frustrating. But more rewarding than the game giving you a map and pointing the way, I find. Those bloody elves in the haunted forest took me ages to puzzle out. That was another thing. Points of no return. If you didn't have the necessary items when you crossed the line, you were already dead and had no idea. Like I said, lots of saves. All the old sierra games had those. That was a big part of the challenge.

I think were just gonna have to remain enemies on this one. I'll be the evil side. I already have the Persian cat.

Even the latter point and click games were far from easy. I challenge anyone to finish Kings Quest 3 remake without a walkthrough, in the single evening I finished Broken Age.

LucasArts games were usually easier than their Sierra counterparts. In my opinion their puzzles were less terrible (although almost any game in the genre boils down to trying to figure out what the designers were thinking), and most of their games didn't kill the player. Full Throttle in particular was a very short game, and Kings Quest 5 in particular a very terrible one (IMO).

EDIT: Re: Manhunter

I could never figure out how to get into the Empire State Building in Manhunter New York, and decades later someone made a Let's Play expounding on how terrible that puzzle was.

I didn't mind Act 1, can't believe how long they're taking to do Act 2. But my main gripe was the difficulty. Point and click adventure games have become stupid easy since the old King's Quest days.

News Comments > Assassin's Creed Unity Dead Kings DLC Next Week
7. Re: Assassin's Creed Unity Dead Kings DLC Next Week Jan 6, 2015, 21:37 Bundy
 
Started playing this around Xmas, after the last patch, so I can't say what it was like before. But I haven't noticed any performance issues, other than when you cross into a new zone and the game starts loading new assets.

Occasionally I run into the odd bug, and all the old AC issues are still here, like when you're chasing a dude then suddenly decide to climb a lamppost.

That said, Black Flag is still better. I agree with Penny Arcade. You can't just give us a pirate ship, and all the Caribbean to sail in, then take it all away and throw us in pre-industrial, dirty as shit, Paris. It's just.... rude.

That's the impression I got reading it too. $85,000 is about exactly what you need to hire one professional for a full year. Not nearly enough for a team of people. Kinda sounds like the "team" is doing this in their spare time while still working day jobs and this money is to hire the veteran composer to work on contract.

All I could see reading this was, "Fuck PC! We're optimise this for phone games!" So yay, Candy Crush in VR. Sounds way better than Elite Dangerous.

I don't get this franchise. My little brother was big into it, made me watch various cutscenes, kept looking over at me like he thought I was supposed to be impressed. But I just don't, get, it. I don't think Kojima is a good storyteller. His characters are weird and way over the top, and the plot just doesn't make any sense.

Wth is up, with the never ending scroll down and has anyone ever actually made it to the end?

It'll scroll forever, you'll see games randomly repeating themselves.

Addictive though, isn't it. I probably scrolled the height of the empire state building during the black friday sale.

No problem
Here are all the training videos if you did not want to do the tutorials in game

Wouldn't mind seeing some tutorials on how to do missions.

For instance, got a mission that requests 3 toxic containers...

So, my first noob question... where? 400 Billion Systems... what are some pointers to understand how to approach it.

Very much liking the game... MUCH to learn

Some missions require the product to be stolen, it'll tell you on the mission. I'm not sure why they care if it's stolen or not, but that's the deal. And these pay pretty well. Other missions will ask you for X number of Y and it's up to you to figure out where to get it. I believe in this case, the product must NOT be stolen. So you have to find a station that sells them.

There's no super easy way in game to figure that out, unfortunately. What you can do is look in the galaxy map and check out the trade routes to give you a hint. Food products are likely sold at agricultural stations. But that's not a guarentee that the product you need will be.

I believe there's an iPhone app Frontier made that lets you check out market data around the galaxy. But I've never tried it, nor know how it works.

I got a little cocky with my moderately upgraded Cobra. Beat a few Sidewinders and Eagles on the first pass. So I took on an Anaconda.... Didn't go as well as with you. I had to book it before I lost the ship, thankfully Cobra's have plenty of armor. But I just couldn't adjust my attack pattern to defeating auto-turrets. They just chewed me up.

First time you manage to land on the minmus (smaller moon), and successfully get your crew back to kerbal is a great feeling. You actually feel like you just accomplished something historic.

Or do people just not really realize how much slower time is moving when they're in their 30s than in their teens?

Not that it matters, but I think you have that backwards. Time feels like it moves faster as you get older. That's why summers feel endless as a child but are over too soon as an adult.

That's the truth. When you turn 30 and are entrenched in the daily work routine. It goes by so fast. I have a hard time accepting my little boy will be out and on his own in a few years. I swear to god I was rocking him to sleep just a few months ago, not years and years.

Good luck with that one. C'mon Gabe hurry up with SteamOS. Pretty please? Or at least give us HL3 or something
Hopefully MS support will not run out on 7 for a while.
I really hate 8

I am really hoping SteamOS isn't another in a long line of dropped Valve projects because I barely use anything Windows specific anymore outside of games.

Yeah, I dunno about Valve sometimes. They'll take a product right to the finish line and then it's just like Gabe wakes up in a bad mood and cancels the entire thing.

The Xbox App here that everyone seems really angry about kinda already sounds a lot like the Games app in Windows 8. Except has a few extra things they took from Smartglass.

Why wouldn't these be powered by android/iOS where you have speed, apps and everything? Why go with a much smaller proprietary system? It's like they are inventing something that just needs to be a tablet for a car.

Well, Apple, Google and MS are all interested. They are each working on in-car systems. I saw a demo of Apple's system and wasn't very impressed. It's basically an iPad mini in your console with a fraction of the functionality and requires an iPhone to be physically plugged into the system. Surely Apple can do better than that.

But that said, keep in mind that one product only sells when the whole vehicle sells. That doesn't have the same $$$ as tablets and phones. So I imagine the budget the in-car department has is quite a bit less than what the iPhone team gets.

I usually don't mind steam sales as a way to stock up on a few decent titles for later play, but this thing is fucking awful...

My entire inventory wouldn't buy a brass razoo (hundreds of cards, I don't bother buying to make sets), leaving me with a prospective pile of shit gems that aren't worth anything and no winning bids I'd imagine.

If I bothered to participate...

Ya I looked into this last night. Shitty games going for hundreds of thousands of gems, but you can only convert cards for 10, maybe 20? This is their dumbest event yet.

Last year my son's best friend, who was 10 yrs old, died of cancer. He'd been fighting it for 5 years. There is not a more horrible thing for any family to go through.

The wounds for all of us are still pretty fresh, I read through their kickstarter page last week. I was crying my eyes out mid way through. This would be a tough game to play.
