That Strategy Informer review is a joke, no own screenshots with GUI elements, it's just a wall of text accompanied by beauty shots, not actual gameplay showing shots. Waste of time

Same for the gaming Nexus review, no own screenshots with GUI elements, and the video is hosted by Firefly. Sponsored reviews or what is it?

I mean I get it.. I should wait until there are let's plays... but wow.. the review quality is a joke. If you make a point about game content make a GOD DAMN SCREENSHOT OF THAT SITUATION. Show the GUI, show how systems function, show how economy functions. GAH. GRML

News Comments > Tim Schaefer Addresses Spacebase DF-9 Questions

Looks and smells like a Steam early access scam. I'm thinking Tim is going to have to go the traditional funding route next time around.

Kickstarter supporters burned on Broken Age
Early access supporters burned on Spacebase DF-9

Nothing wrong with crowdfunding, developers need to have enough integrity to deliver.

To be fair, in this case they just committed a PR faux-pas and depending on what 1.0 actually contains and how much can be modded this might still be worth the money and time people put in. But in the case of Broken Age they are dawdling around for god knows what reason and are wasting huge sums of money for a point and click game that you could have produced for a tenth of the budget (with less polish and fancy art, but the same gameplay and effect).

For me Tim Schafer was always the dude that couldn't meet deadlines. Because when a CEO like Kotick slams Schafer publicly you know he's burned a LOT of bridges in the industry. And he likely needed to crowd-fun because investors were sick of this empty promises and missed milestones.

I didn't support Broken Age nor DF-9 because I already saw it coming. But I can understand that people are unhappy about both things. But what they spend their money on is their decision, and nobody forced them to buy DF9 before it was "done" or support Broken Age. (Though granted, the split in 2 parts was hilarious and likely burned a dozen times more bridges than DF9 ,p)

Now make a meta game where it's integrated with Plague Inc!

Exactly. Need a way to scare up sales.

That's actually a really interesting idea... kinda surprising nobody ever did that yet.

How do you get to the forums on a game you haven't bought? Trying to hide info from us? Or am I blind?

Click on community hub then discussions

I like the blue, much better than grey....

Also steam implemented new censorship, try mentioning GOG or GMG in steam forums (or basically all the places where you get steam games cheaper than on steam...)

Does anyone know why some text in Steam is now clear-type and some isn't? I hate clear-type (Ah, enable direct write..)

Also you can now see what you own in the overviews ans store pages.. about fucking time!

Heh that's actually a pretty neat feature... you can right click on recommendations and disable early access and pre-purchase (and software)

Can't believe Steam listened, there had been complaints about store usability for years now.

Now take this idea and put it in a game like OTTD done in 3D with a budget of 50 million. For all the industries, design your own vehicles, design your own factories, design your own mines and harvesting farm systems, drones and transportation etc.

Of course it doesn't the rabbit hole just goes so much deeper.

And even if that all is there in the release version, they still need a good catalog of games/simulations etc. adapted for VR and made for VR.. and this is were Facebook cash will make all the difference in the world.

Anyhow, I am delaying my next upgrade until I know what is needed hardware wise for VR. Ain't no point upgrading hardware when it's in the air whether an GPU you can buy today even supports the SLI tech needed to render 2 different views in the same game with PERFECT sync. And what fps the target is gonna be. I am guessing optimally 120....

Because invading Crimea with soldiers was so predictable?
Or because the coup attempt in Chechen was so predictable?
Or the invasion of Georgia?

I really feel DF is shooting themselves in the foot. How do they expect anyone to crowdsource any of their future projects? This is a PR nightmare.

You mean more a PR nightmare than the complete absence of Broken Age part 2? Where is *that* again? I mean I think it's actually worse to cut apart a coherent single story in 2 pieces than going from Alpha 6 to 1.0 (which to be honest, is an utter joke, DF9 is nothing but an empty shell with zero personality)

Exposed: The Secret Mailing List of the Gaming Journalism Elite.

Why hello there!

edit: Pretty much explains why the exact same headlines of late (anti-gamer, you guys are horrible, etc, etc) show up on multiple sites at the same time...

Yeah, don't much care for Breitbart, but it was obvious when those stories all came out at once with the same theme that there was collusion. That just seems manipulative, honestly. And I really could care less about the whole Quinnspiracy.

It's funny that just a bit of digging leads to infinite sources of corruption in the so called gaming press. Journalists making story, is a deadly sin of journalism.

Btw, http://www.goodgamers.us/ seems to be an interesting non-bullshit site that sprang up from this...

Another example of why they're not taken seriously...


Huh.. I had exactly 1 wireless device ever, that was a mouse. It ran out of battery always in the worst situations. And it was heavy as fuck. Wired all the way. Not to mention that there is no decent way to connect a high tickrate USB device wireless.

Sadly, that turned out to be a bald-faced lie, and we really never use it...

To be fair, it's not exactly the traditional forum that people had in mind in terms of features or implementation.

Let me reiterate, I have been lurking here for 10 or so years... Blues has a Forum? Isn't every news post a new forum topic, essentially?

Why do you need a forum if you already have a forum underneath every news post? (And how can you call it a forum without "post update" functionality ;P)

I think it's simply harder to play on people's fears after they've been on the internet.

I feel incredibly desensitized when watching or participating in anything labelled as 'horror'.

Honestly, the last time I was freaked out by anything in a video game was... the end of Metal Gear Solid? or... maybe Eternal Darkness on the cube? Or the blacked out hallway at the beginning of the original Unreal? Peek-a-boo scares are the only thing that elicit any sort of response anymore.

That dark hallway in Unreal 1.... holy crap... I still remember that. The entire beginning of the game is actually creepy as hell.

Anyway.. I think with VR it will be another matter entirely.
