Hrm, I'm tempted to go in for at least $15 for Shadowrun:HK, I got the first two, played through the first one and found it good, and the second one apparently is much better, according pretty much universal reviews. (It's in the queue!)

I'll burn through Dragonfall real quick and see if I still want another game in that engine.

Hrm, this D3 patch isn't terrible, but it sure doesn't feel like the result of 6+ months of work.

There are still plenty of 'dud' legendaries with no Legendary affix, 2-3 years after release. D3 will be FAR better off if they drop this seasonal bullshit and just give EVERY legendary a USEFUL affix.

Offline/Mod ability would help also.

Hrm, I've been playing the Banner Saga recently, that score is so depressingly amazing. Hopefully Wintory's protest goes well. From that article and the linked ones it sounds like yet another attempt by corporations to ream some musicians.

Poor Lucas, a few good ideas lost in an avalanche of shitty ones.

It'll really burn when these new films come out and blow his last three out of the water.

Still, he made a metric shit-ton of money off of this franchise, nobody's going to be shedding too many tears.

Free to play, MMO, SOE? What's the deal on micropayments or ads or whatever their funding model is?

This is from 9 months ago: H1Z1 monetization plans revealed.

Hrm, a little vague, but they claim they're going to attempt to avoid pay to win. I'll check this game out eventually.

Nothing on their webpage or Steam, from my extensive 5 second glance, feature list seems interesting though.

All you people talk about this time of year is Hand-Egg. :/

Haha, an excellent usage of the classic Hand-Egg.

I'd say Payton should retire immediately, but he's still getting paid millions to play a child's game so... stay until you're 50, Manning. Just don't go into politics!

I was kind of curious about the extremely high percentage of positive reviews as well, so I read a bunch (through Steam). They all, of the 30-40 or so I read through, have several to dozens of hours in the game.

Admittedly, I did not read through all 520+, but I don't think there is any sort of major scam going on here or even anything as tame as overly eager fanboys.

You are right though, to a certain extent. 100> players is pretty small for multiplayer, but you have to keep in mind this game has zero marketing budget, 1 developer, mostly word of mouth or stuff like Bluesnews, which is basically about 30-50 somewhat bitter old men arguing with each other.

Add another hope/request for Sins of a Solar Empire 2... I've put so many hours into SoaSE and Rebellion, it's a little ridiculous. Max map size, max stars, must...conquer and build up... every planet...

SoaSE is probably my favorite single player RTS all time, didn't really enjoy the multiplayer as much as Starcraft or War3, or even Total Annihilation though.

Game looks pretty fun, and base price of 9.99, definitely going to buy it when it's on sale. Play count increases by 1!

Every game starts somewhere, I remember early, EARLY CS betas, it was the same like 20ish people playing on a server, now look how stupidly huge that game/series is.

I'm not saying that this game will get that big, but clearly it's good enough to gain a bit more of an audience as time goes on.

*EDIT* Typo.

Not only did they cover every hot topic buzzword, they misspelled rogue! (unless that was Blue). This game cannot fail to succeed.

The environment looked extremely repetitive as did the zombie smash gameplay.

I thought this was going to be more along the lines of a Grand Theft Auto type open city with zombies in it. This is just a reskinned version of Dead Island with Parkour like movement system.

Correct... if you didn't like Dead Island, this game is probably not for you.

I liked Dead Island a hell of a lot after buying it during a Steam sale, at the very least I'll get Dying Light the same way. It looks good, not great.

I missed the part where they said they were developing it in the Infinity Engine. Oh wait no I didn't. You guys are pulling shit from your asses as usual. Not to mention they clearly stated its what they would like to do but wasn't happening right now.

Right here:

Adventure Y

This year, the eagerly anticipated Adventure Y will finally navigate the dark underground caverns of development and venture out into the Sword Coast. We’ve mentioned before that Adventure Y will be an addition to the Baldur’s Gate line using the Infinity engine, bridging the gap between Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition.

It's the first game they mention before any newer project. I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt, but engine choice + game timeline, for that one at least, seems like a real uphill battle.

Ugh...as much as I loved the Infinity Engine games, and BG2 may be my favorite game of all time(with mods), it is definitely time to retire that engine.

Besides, how the hell is that going to work, level wise? BG1 ends around level 7-9, BG2 starts at about 8-9ish, goes to 40, with various expansions even in vanilla versions.

Of course I'll be eager to check out what they finally come up with, but it sounds like they are destined to just disappoint and piss off all the real BG1/BG2 fans.

according to this it appears most of the funding is coming from those making less than 10k per year..

That seems legit

On on the one hand, I was amused by the people who chose "Velociraptor" as their gender. On the other hand, I was shocked and dismayed that 25 people have spent $20,000 or more on Star Citizen!

My greatest fear is that there is a Velociraptor out there with the free cash to drop 20K on this game...

Mildly interesting, but of course the trailer has zero game footage.

Of course coming from the developers of Devil May Cry, I can sorta guess how the gameplay is going to be...

Hrm, debating the Abstract Bundle... I have been looking to get Meltdown, but most of the other games in that package seem like either shovelware or school projects. Not that $2.49 is a huge sum, but it's the principle.
