Anyone play Vanishing of Ethan Carter? How many hours of game play? I enjoyed Gone Home, and this seems similar, but these games are single play through so gotta factor bang for the buck.

Second hand opinion of VoEC is that it can be pretty short, if you rush through the puzzles, etc. Under 5 hours, according to some complaints on the steam forums. That necessarily isn't a deal breaker for me at least, I just might wait for a bigger sale discount.

I broke down and bought Road Redemption... this game is going to be huge! (among that very small segment of the population that loved Road Rash back in the day)

I am going to try this demo, and form an opinion based on that. Revolutionary thinking!

Wow, Yahtzee really ripped The Evil Within a new one in that ZP review.

I'm still planning on getting it at 10 bucks or less though.

My new theory is that Skye is either Inhuman or half-Inhuman and her dad is actually Maximus the Mad. (Black Bolt's brother and exiled Inhuman) That's why the Kree blood isn't affecting her the same way it affected Coulson or Garret.

I know..it's kind of out there but...

No, I'd say you're right on the money, considering:

Of the "Inhumans," Feige promises we'll get hints of them sooner than you may think.



Wow, interesting, but I wonder if they'd bring out a character that big in the tv show? Of course they did bring Mockingbird into the show, so who knows. I am leaning towards some sort of Kree or other offplanet species, especially since it all stems from that blue corpse from the first season.


Bottom line, from now until May 2015, must...avoid...all Avengers spoilers!

The fascination with ruining a movie for yourself months before it even comes out continues to amaze me... everywhere I look there are special looks, trailers, behind the scenes, etc. etc.

SHOW US NOTHING!

ps. If you are correct, and we get a Black Bolt appearance in the tv show, they had damn well get the correct actor for the role. Considering Black Bolt will have zero dialogue this shouldn't be too hard though.

That woman looks like she took a pretty good shot from the metal bar at the bottom of the gate, hard to tell if it was to the chest/arm or straight to the face though. Definitely unpleasant, but probably not too serious as she's walking around shortly after.

I hope the driver was extremely drunk or high... the only way to explain how stupid this entire event was.

Another day, yet another Gamergate tidbit. Once again, nothing of note has occurred, nothing is resolved, and no useful discussion will take place, anywhere.

Congratulations, internet!

Obligatory: xkcd

PS. for people who don't seem to know, Colbert is on comedy network. His show is satire. Although he interviews real people, he interviews them as his right wing character almost exclusively(I think he's done what, 2 as himself?). You might as well get mad at an article from the Onion.

Pillars of Eternity, Torment:Tides of Numenera. The money has been thrown at you, please turn out to be well done, (relatively) bug free games!


Also, Grim Dawn, please be finished in my lifetime, thanks.


Thus concludes the Kickstarter prayer.

I bought the Crusader games awhile back on gog.com during their last sale.. the gog version suffers from the original control issues, aka terribly implemented keyboard+mouse setup.

I'm sure the Origin version is about the same, but I'll download and check it out later. The controls can only improve at this point.

I can't even remember how I got through it, way back when on the floppy/CD version... I don't remember the controls being this rough.

For something that won't break the bank, but should provide you with all the control you need for a good experience, I recommend the Thrustmaster T-Flight HOTAS. One thing that's not evident from Amazon's photos is that the throttle and stick separate into two separate units if you want them further apart. I haven't gotten E:D yet, but Halfelf has, and he just got one of these sticks, so you might want to check with him.

Hrm thanks, that doesn't even seem too crazy, price wise, at 45 bucks. Although I thought all the good HoTaS setups were like $200 ?

Inspired by Quake 3? a top down shooter? Of course they are probably referring to the space marine bit, but this game does bring back fond memories of Robotron and Smash TV. 11 bucks, I may buy it.

It does. And your solo game is the same for multiplayer and vice versa, so your gains apply to both modes. When you choose solo you will not have PvP or any other player encounters but can play the game fully. I play it solo mostly because I'm terrible at dog fighting. If you buy a new ship, upgrade it in solo play, it will be the ship you fly in multiplayer, with same credits as solo.

That's great news, excellent design decision by those guys.

I will get this eventually, although I'm going to have to break down and buy a halfway decent joystick/throttle combo at some point.

Pfft. So much negativity for something that's over a year away, and will have been worked on, by that point, for almost 4 years.

It'll be a great game...eventually. I know most people here have given up on BF4, but it's playable now, and actually very enjoyable. A year's worth of patches of course, but they are actively working on improving the game with the CTE, can't really ask for much more at this point. Just realize the Frostbite engine is never going to lead to a 100-tic Counterstrike-like experience and you'll be much better off.

I am under no illusions about how buggy Battlefront could be on release, but still, I'm looking forward to running somebody over with a Tauntaun. Or an Imperial Walker. or just seeing a nice 64 player battle with the classic SW laser colors and sound effects... *drool*

I gave in and bought it, played through 2 sessions... even on easy it seems very easy to get everybody killed/your crystal destroyed. Defenses are needed, but the enemies can also just run the hell past them unless I'm missing something. Also there seems to be no way to close doors?

In spite of that, seems pretty interesting, nice music too, although yes, they have the retro/fake 8bit graphics, or at least full pixel graphics if you want to call them that. I'm not minding the art so far, it actually looks pretty good if you can get by the blockiness.

Clearly I'm on the other side of this equation, I still buy physical books(screw Kindles), and occasionally CDs/blu rays. Although I do have Netflix, I like making my own mp3s(OCD kicking in), and I'll buy a blu ray every now and then for anything I know I'll watch a dozen times, ie. Aliens, Terminator, etc.

Also there is so much else on Amazon, in terms of physical items, that this article seems a bit off base... they still had 5% GROWTH, no decline as of yet. Anytime I want to buy PC hardware, filters for an Air Conditioner, whatever, I check amazon and price compare vs Newegg, etc. and Amazon usually has competitive prices plus the whole free shipping thing.

Buying movies and CDs is definitely on the decline, which is great for me at least; I am able to pick those up for like 4-5 bucks usually on some Amazon sale.

*EDIT* Typo.

His face bothers me by all the weird looks he can make. It got downright hilarious with some of the faces he made in Star Trek.

The best physical description of Benedict Cumberbatch ever: "face like a sexy fish" - one of the authors on Cracked.com

It made me chuckle, I'm ashamed to say. But he definitely got more than his share of cheek bone.
