What'd ya get, Blue?

PAYDAY 2 (+DLC), The Hitman Series (+DLC), the Saints Row series, Dark Souls, Fallout: New Vegas, Defy Gravity (thanks Bats!), and Pixel Piracy.

Hope that included Saint's Row 3. 4 was good, but I think 3 is still my favorite. Some wonderful humor there.

Cool by the Rockstar guy to preserve the church building.

Yeah, I thought that was awesome. Was afraid he was going to pull a Kevin Rose and demo it or something, but he wants to preserve it, and let folks use it.

Very cool thing to do.

So, OMD is turning into a MOBA now? Hmmm...

Yep, I lost all interest. Good while it lasted. They were posting like crazy on bookface too, and had to remove them from my feed.

I'm a gamer.

I play shit on whatever platform I'm having fun on. Be it from Tetris back on the good old 1st gen Gameboy, Pokemon series on a 2Ds, Super Star Wars on a SNES, Sonic the Hedgehog on a Sega Genesis, Warhawk on the Playstation, Zelda on a N64, Halo on a Xbox, Metal Gear 2 on a PS2, Infamous on a PS3, All the Forza's on the 360, and just about everything else on my PC.
Oh and I have a soft spot for Are you Smarter then a 5th Grader on my Android Phone/Tablet, along with a copy of Minecraft for Consoles/PC/Tablet, even though my phone and tablet both have GTA3 on them as well.

Shut the fuck up, and quit worrying about what other people say and enjoy what you want, where you want it.

Cheers

Cheers


3rded...as a gamer, I go where the good games are.

Anyone here played Space Engineers? Impressions?

That's the only title I don't already own from this list that has me somewhat interested..

I caught HElf playing it on steam yesterday. He said it reminded him of minecraft.

I'm curious about it as well...

What kind of controversy is the KS undergoing? Is it one of those cases where they are offering big, big things but only have images pulled from Google to showcase their concept art?

I've not been following it closlly, but I'm sure if you follow Blue's links backwards...

Off the top of my head:
Various questions of what devs have actually worked on (vs their claims).

Another KS trying to slander them.

Devs claiming death threats.

Lack of concrete material on KS pitch (allegedly using video from other games).

And my personal opinion: I don't think they can accomplish what they want to on a minimum of $50K, and there's no way in hell it's making it's (eventual) $1M stretch goal.

Based on all of that, I'm out. If they want to come back in a year with more substantial/realistic plans, good luck to them.

I've skipped buying the DLC the last two or three sales because I only need two of them, and it seems shitty to me to have to buy the legendary edition to get them, even though it's cheaper that way. I think I'm still going to hold out, but there's still ~14 hours for me to cave and change my mind.

Not to mention that when I did buy Legendary, steam told me that I wouldn't be getting an additional copy of the core game, in the process. They could have at least made it tradeable...

Finally broke down and bought I76 on GoG. Had been waiting for it to go on flash sale, but it never did. Still, for $3, can't go wrong. No idea what I did with my originals, but for $3, no need to fiddle with settings. Just DL and go! You dig?

Did anyone ever attempt to update the textures on that one? Even running d3d, the screenshots look pretty rough, by todays standards.

Wish someone would kickstart the fuck out of that IP.

Is Wolfenstein at $29.99 worth it? I'm on the fence about this one. I may jump on it if there's a bigger drop tomorrow.

I enjoyed the hell out of it, but I doubt it'll go below $30.

Landing that plane on a stool is amazing. He did clunk it down fairly hard at the end though.

Always thought Harriers were pretty jets...amazing job on the pilot's part.

I only bought Spelunky when it was on sale on GoG.

On Steam I bought (so far):
The Last Federation - just because it's from Arcen games, who are still supporting AI War
Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons
Brutal Legend
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary - didn't own the DLC so wtf

I didn't plan on buying anything this year, and was surprised what I ended up with:

Skyrim Legendary - like you, didn't have the DLC
Defy Gravity Extended - from Bats
Gone Home - from Complicity
Baldur's Gate 2 Enhanced Edition
Shadowrun Returns (Anthology + Soundtrack)
PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX+ All You Can Eat Edition

Gog:
Magrunner: Dark Pulse (free)
F-117A Nighthawk Stealth Fighter 2.0
Clive Barker's Undying
Ultima mega pack
Wing Commander pack (filling in what I missed)
Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
Carmageddon 2: Carpocalypse Now
Omerta: City of Gangsters (4 DLCs included) (free)
Still Life 2 (free)
System Shock™ 2

Was going to grab Original Sin, but I'm sure I won't play it for months (or a year, too much other stuff), so I'll wait for another price drop.

If you like V2, it's safe to say you'll like 3. I just got to the 5th mission and I'm loving it! The game looks and plays better too.

Exactly what I was afraid of (I have a huge stack of stuff and was hoping to skip it for now)...might have to break down and grab it. Thanks!

Whoa, the comments are pretty brutal.

Yeah, that whole thing I'm just ready to walk away from. I'm not sure who to believe any more, and in a way I feel sorry for those doing the project, as it seems like they're being assaulted from all sides.

I will say I'm extremely skeptical they can accomplish what they want to with a base $50K, and it's obvious they're not going to get the $1m+ they want to really do the project right. It's like they can't win no matter what they do...


I hear what you are saying nin, but in all honesty, they deserve the bashing they are taking. They have nothing to show on what they are working on. They have no videos of actualy game play or anyone actually working in front of a pc showing off at least whats being worked on. They keep giving updates about how they are being wronged, but they failed each and every time to present and solid evidence about this project.

Theres just far to may shady things about these guys that raises red flags that you just cant trust anything they tell you. The whole presentation was done wrong from the get go. Anyone that's clearly wanting to get funding for a project should start their video with an introduction, then show off what they are designing. Then tell you about it and where they are going with it and introduce the team. They failed on all fronts.

Can you really thrust these guys when they are only asking for 50K? that wont even pay for one guys salary for 6 months.

And then theirs the fact they state this game is going to be on all platforms. okay, physical disk for that matter on one platform along will cost around 90K How if the fricking world do you fund a project, build it with a team of 10 or 12 peoples they say is on this project and do it all with 50K?

If you can answer that one, then you must have some inside info. because these guys fail to even address that fact or tell us why they only need 50K do they have private backers that are funding them? If so why all the secrecy?

No, these guys are trying to make a quick buck off the community, and they know getting 50K is a sure thing when you start tossing around the name STALKER.

I can't really disagree with any of that, especially the multi platform part. Everything they describe just seems a little too vague, with not a lot of concrete details. I realize it's early, but the pitch (and what's done already and can be shown) can either make or break a KS...and in this case, it's underwhelming.

Picked it up last night from Green Man with 20% coupon. So far LOVING the game, it's a blast. I dont know if Rebellion is a crap company or not but the game they made is solid....imo.

Someone was claiming their GMG key was revoked, and I'd be extremely curious if that was true, as I've never had a single issue with them in the past, over (looking at my orders) 14 purchases.
