I always find it kind of interesting when people "play games for the story."
Outside of a small handful, almost every game story is pretty weak and poorly presented.

When I'm out just for story, I read, which I probably do as much as game these days. Books, those have stories. Video games? They have ideas that sort of form into a bit of a story.

Generalization is never a good idea in such a topic ;p "Video games" is very far reaching, and includes visual novels too....

Now granted, there are not a lot of games with any semblance of good story.... but there are still enough to maybe play one every month (except SOME months, urgh)

I still can't believe Ricochet outsold Skyrim.
Skyrim was on the top Steam seller list for like a year or more straight. Every single week.

Ricochet is and was part of basically ever single valve pack ever sold. Not to mention they gave it away for free during community events more than once

I no this is blasphemy to many, but with the backlog I have and it's only going to get larger. I'm more now for 15 hour'ish length games, For many games that go much longer my ADHD kicks in anyway as I become a bit bored repeating its game play for so long. I rather it just end around 15 and get to the next game. This is about the only chance I have at seeing the light of the backlog tunnel.

But I'm totally fine buying quality games at 75% off even if I don't get to them. A it is still $ in the devs pockets. B. It is setting a market and has played a factor in the lower costs of games.

That's like the Stick of Truth sitting at $60. I want it, but it doesn't match the value of so many other turn-based games out there. So I wait.

I almost always play through single player games on the easiest difficultly level. Turns a 20 hour game into a 12 hour game. Guess that makes me a content tourist, rather than a gamer!

Aside from it being Blasphemy, what you describe really is not ;p

I often set games to easy too, and I am an hardcore twitch gamer to the extreme otherwise. Only games I enjoy playing I set to "normal" ,p where normal is that neither AI nor me get any advantages.

In the end I play a game for good engaging gameplay and story, for immersion and atmosphere. Not for some number based challenge or grind.

I only play higher difficulty when I really love the game.

Tried to join some games tonight - don't have all the DLC - no one to play with. Deleted.

That's actually a huge issue with BF4 in general I thankfully got plenty of faved servers now that will never run any other rotation than the one they run now.

What's worse, is that the DLC indicator on the server browser is often wrong. Servers can change rotation "on the fly" and it doesn't update. So you end up with DLC maps in a server that has a no dlc icons...

Awesome (Especially, when map vote scripts implement DLC maps)

Well so when we are talking bout KS projects

Mark of the old ones looks interesting, physics "swing" based platformer.. but... gamepad only

And I suck at gamepad controls, can't do precise movement with em..

Habitat looks like an arcade game mixture between Kerbal Space Program and asteroids (the game where you dodge and shoot asteroids ,p)... the video they used for showing the game showed the game alright, but it looks so.. childish. I kinda expected a techy sci-fi style .. mhhh

JetGetters
Looks cook... but where is the gameplay? ;p Hijacking planes is neat idea, but what's the in-game goal? How does it work in MP? Do you suddenly get thrown out of the plane? Presentation video confused me more than it helped

And oh yeah
MechRunner
looks like a smup I don't pledge for those.. ;p

Check out GMG, they've just kicked off a big 7 day long sales event.
Use this code for an additional 10% off
3VUROJ-VOU4IC-RHVA7N

Alas, these 3 games are not on GMG ;/ (Smaller, Indy games, but at 50Ä for all 3 too expensive)

I haven't come across that one but I can see that it's possible in very mountainous regions. 2UPT could work well if it doesn't imbalance the game.

Well the AI is using it (very effectively, as the AI can suddenly move it's units properly) when you enable it, so I don't see how it could unbalance the game

I'm just waiting for the apologists to come in and say that the game works fine for them and that they never have any problems.

Not gonna hear me say that ,)

This bug explains so, so fucking many weird situations I had recently too. Gamebreaking bug, unplayable until fixed...

DICE at work


Holy shit, this bug existed since beta actually... just... nobody ever attributed it to that. We always thought it was net-code or simple weird server packet loss. I've seen that so many times on locker... holy hell.

The AI is fine

until you have more than 3 workers....

I don't remember many problems with having several workers under AI control. They can bunch up in one area of the map, such as if you conquer a city then they might all rush in to improve the roads/land, but this is minor and can happen when they're under player control. Is there something I'm forgetting?

You are forgetting that workers can't sit on the same space as another worker... on certain map configs they literally dead-lock themselves, because workers at the "front" of the chain start work and the workers behind can no longer pass them.

The primary reason why I am playing with a 2upt mod. No stacks of doom, but you can stack 2 units of each kind now.. which by the way, fixes the AI formation problems completely.

They don't do spring sales. Closest they ever had was last year with an all-indie promotion. Past 5 years has always been a 6-7 month wait between big winter and summer sales. That could change, obviously, but I don't understand the expectation when there's no precedent for it.

I always thought they do a spring sale coupled with some kind of community event, ie challenges etc.... like the potato sale ;p Where you could buy a "bag" of indy games for super price and get achievements in them to get some reward.... (Which I got, it was the complete Valve back-catalog at the time)

They are not doing that anymore I guess...

I don't need any more Steam sales. I have enough unplayed/unfinished games as it is.

Yeah, I went throughout 2013 without buying a game from Steam at all, until the Autumn sale.

Speaking of sales... where are they? No easter sale/spring sale after all?

Meh, I don't know. I personally think that demonization goes absolutely viral all the time. Mostly on Blues, but also on the net in general. Of course it's only my opinion but I really like both TWD and TWAU still as much as I did the S01E01. I don't see where all the bad mojo is coming from and I don't care either -- it's too easy to get prejudiced by the over-analytic ramblings of self-entitled critics.

Hey now. That's not true..... I'm not overly analytic...

Neither am I. But.... If I play a game, I am going to talk about my opinion of it. And these are subjective.

By the way.. what the heck does self-entitled even mean. Makes no sense. Every human being is entitled with a focus on itself. If that is not the case, that person is likely schizophrenic or depressive.

So if anything, you are saying it's too easy to be prejudiced by "subjective opinions" and to that I say... WELL DUH And if you don't care, your post makes no sense either. Clearly you do care ;p

I like the telltale games are visual novels, but I would never recommend them if someone asks me about a good game.....

The game launched with 15 maps.
BF4 launched with 10.
BF3 9.
CoD Ghosts 14.

I won't be buying the 3 DLC maps. The new game modes that are also launching with the DLC will be free to everyone. Don't see what there is to get so worked up about over a 3 map DLC in 2014.

Not to mention that BF3 broke it's extra game modes by making them expansion exclusive. So nobody fucking played them.... argh

So I got Titanfall for cheap and I got my moneys worth already.... new game-modes sounds good to me. There's already plenty of maps in it....

I gotta say though, I am a really good player in Titanfall and Battlefield... but Battlefield just bores me nowadays. I play once or twice every few weeks and that's it.

Wall running in Titanfall doesn't get old quite that quickly.... the load times do though. On an SSD, longer than 1m....
